  • Could this be the biggest TG game ever?

    I put it to you, could this game turn out to be the biggest TG game ever in terms of player numbers?

    For one, it looks like PS2 will by nature be a game of which teamplay and communication will be of paramount importance. A good candidate for TG support no doubt, and should have some draw to most of our members.

    Secondly, there should be something for everyone. Like playing Medic? SL? Recon? Engineer? Assault? Armor? Trans? CAS? CAP? It's... all here. So it seems.

    Finally - and perhaps most critically - is the free to play factor. There is no barrier to entry for any of us. There is no reason that every member in TG shouldn't at least try PS2 for a few days.

    Could they get hooked? Could we see 60-100 man platoons of TG members sweeping into bases across Auraxis, backed up by TG armor and air cover? Could we see that on multiple servers, serving every faction?

    Because words have trouble describing just how glorious that image is.
    Teamwork and Tactics are OP

      It's got to exceed 300 active players to beat out the Tactical Gamer World of Warcraft guild we had on Thunderhorn. :)

            Just call it perspective.. We ran a SINGLE guild with 300 people in it. It was HIGHLY successful.

                    If the game is good and catches on, seeing it is free to play I think that 300 for an organization such as ours is a pretty low estimate. Think bigger!

                      Managing a single title with that many active players is rather difficult. We learned a lot of lessons between WoW and EVE, so as long as we leverage what we've learned with PS2, I wouldn't doubt that it could exceed the player base of WoW within TG over time.

                          The title will be hosted on SOE servers, so we'll have no control there.

                            Heh. Admins take on a different role with these types of games. They can't manage a player base or server, so it more comes down to creating a cohesive environment for the _community as a whole_ and then leveraging leaders within the community to help manage smaller subsets of players. It's really just a basic CoC structure but the players have to all be on the same page for it to be effective for the community.

                            You'll notice I said "community" in there a lot. That means something. :)

                              To manage 300....

                              That's like 3 Coy + numbers so probably two companies + support vehicles?

                              At 8-man sections, that's 32 section leaders, 8 platoon leaders, 2 coy commanders...

                              And that's just infantry. So... probably 50+ leaders at all levels to reasonably manage that many troops. Wow.

                              That would be a true test of the community. But I think we've got what it takes. A strong cadre of veteran game officers and squad leaders, plus a bunch of gung-ho junior ranks that we can mold into future leaders.

                              I'm cautiously optimistic.
