What we will do:
This meet up is to train on some close quarter infantry tactics, then execute them in a small map environment, 12 vs. 12 (2 full squads) under fire. All players will meet in 1 place on the map to run through some tactics using Team Speak 3 to do the instruction for all 24 players.
Basic Training Outline:
1. Useful weapons for Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT).
2. Moving in a MOUT environment.
3. Clearing a building.
4. Defending a building.
5. Optimal locations for Automatic Rifle and other heavy weapons.
Once training is completed (30-40 minutes), the 2 teams will fight each other using these tactics. Play will continue until players get tired of it :-)
Award: The TGU Assault Tactics pin will be awarded for this event.
What is the point??
Training is reinforced by doing. This event will combine training with fun and experience in a controlled environment and closed roster. Executing the training with 24 players dedicated to testing the maneuvers under fire should be a good learning experience without the drawbacks of trying these maneuvers with public players on the live PR server.
If this first Gamer University Teach and Execute Meet Up goes well and is valuable to the community, we will host other events based on other themes. Possible events:
1. Scoped rifle and Sniper/Marksman shoot out.
2. Vehicle Mode Tank Combat.

What not to post?
• "What time will it be in my time zone?" Work it out!
• "It's not fair! I keep getting pushed out by Supporting Members!" Sorry. It is part of being an SM to get into these events first.
• "I'm on the reserve list. How good are my chances of playing if I show up?" Very, very high. We cannot assure you'll get to play, but there are always last minute drop outs.
• This thread is not for discussion of the event, just the sign up. Please don't post other things here, use a regular post.
See you out there.
