  • [INFO] To ALL SQUAD LEADERS - Disband your squads/platoons!

    Please, please people.

    If you are squad or platoon leading and have to leave, either promote another TG member to your leadership position or kick everyone in the squad to disband the squad.

    We had an unfortunate incident tonight where a platoon leader left without observing the proper procedures. The pubbie who became the de facto leader of the platoon (after we eventually managed to open communication with him) stated that he was 'commandeering the platoon' because he 'didn't like players who pretended to be tacticool'. He made it clear he had no intent to lead said platoon, only to deny its use to us.

    We now have a platoon bearing the TacticalGamer.com name on Mattherson, displaying the worst type of unfocused, anarchic play - counter to everything that TG stands for.

    This is not an isolated incident. Tonight we had the bad luck to have leadership fall to a disruptive player. There have been many, many more nights where this could have happened and did not due to pure happenstance.

    Please be zealous in your procedures when leaving the game. Double-check to make sure you are not in a leadership position. If no TG members will take over for you, kick them all!

    Agreed.

    Unless Jeepo or John overrule me on this, keeping TG in command of a named TG squad/platoon is not optional. It's required.

    Of course, real life sometimes intrudes on our gaming lives. If this happens, transfer SL/PL to a known TG member.

    Not to mention, taking over an already formed squad/platoon is a great way to get some command experience. I highly recommend giving it a try.

      I accidentally formed a squad yesterday by hitting INSERT when there were no squads at all.
      I named it tacticalgamer.com but shortly after realized nobody was listening so I changed the name to nontalkingrandomplayers and left to lone wolf until some TG showed up.
      If you click recruitment again you can change the name of the squad if there are no TG to take command.
      I think that is a better option than disbanding because it doesn't leave the non-outfit players swinging in the wind.

      BTW: what was that player's name so we know to avoid him in the future ?

        It makes a lot of common sense... just remember there will be occasions where people get unexpectedly disconnected from the server. You can try communicating with the new SL/PL but if that doesn't work you just need to re-form a new squad/platoon and move on.

          If one TG member is willing to stay with the squad they can 'wait it out' until squad lead falls to them again, at which point they can rename or destroy the squad. Eventually we resolved tonight's scenario this way.

          I'm not sure if a 'blacklist' of players is allowed or warranted yet, if it is in the future I'll post his handle.

            If you are the squad leader and the squad is dead, click on disable recruitment and rename it, then enable recruitment and leave ;)

              I am so very sorry as there is a high probability it was myself! With a somewhat thick case of common cold I wasn't feeling top form - if ever in that situation again I shall make sure I either rename or promote a TGer.

                You've got three options;

                1. Kick everyone out and disband the squad.
                2. Hand it over to a willing TG member.
                3. Change the name.

                    I'm sorry this is a serious situation I know. But "tacticool" :row__530: I have to admit had me rolling on the floor!

                    Maybe we should have a weekly Sundy cruise night where everyone pimps out a their Sundy and we just cruise around the map listening to Van Halen with the windows down.
                    This way we would get a rep for being "tacticool"

                    My 2 cents

                      It would be impressive if we had a 20 -30 veh convoy rolling through the map with this on prx.
