Friday Night Fights

Friday the 13th Edition
Event Time: Friday, September 13, 8:00 PM EDT (GMT -5) / 9:00 PM EST
Ladies and Gentlemen, stock your coolers, clean and oil your mice and keyboards, and exorcise your homes from evil spirits in preparation for this Friday the 13th! I will be putting down my rifle (and Galaxy) this Friday so that I can focus 100% on platoon leading. A lot of times I PL because no one else wants to, and so therefore sometimes I do it half arse, but not this Friday.
My intention is to get on in the afternoon and start to get a warm up platoon going, so that by event time we should have a full platoon (or if enough leaders are present, maybe even two). I will manage the squads closely so that we will try to have at least several TG in each squad, led by a good and experienced SL, so as not to dilute our effectiveness. We will start out as generalists and infantry, but I hope to expand to specialized squads (air, armor, Harassers, etc.) if there are enough numbers (leaders especially), interest, and assuming those assets are appropriate for our AO and objectives.
I would like to see a focus on good comms usage, teamwork and cooperation (especially between diverse specialty squads), and having fun. Let's also try to have a good turnout in TeamSpeak, in case in game comms go down (as they did again as recently as last week or so). If you haven't set it up yet, you have the rest of this week to do so, all the info can be found here.
We will be pursuing in game objectives such as choosing strategic objectives on the map, appropriate to our force size. We will also likely participate in any alerts that come along, if I feel they contribute to the above goals. I will have an ear in NCC comms and will coordinate with any other outfits present there, especially if there is an alert. I would also like to try and work in the Amp Station - Fast Break Technique if the opportunity arises, so please make sure you have read the guide and understand the strategy (or at least understand one or two roles that you would likely volunteer for). It's a long thread full of discussion, but there is a link in the first thread to our current working version (1.1) if you are more interested in the "how" than the "why."
Please sign up as soon as possible and spread the word so we get a great turnout. I would like to at least get leadership roles (SLs and PLs) assigned before Friday. Remember, many people do not come to the forums so spread the word in game during the week in Outfit as well as our platoons.
