  • Weekly Award Winners

    Please congratulate your fellow TG players on their achievements! Also, please remember it only takes a few minutes to nominate one of your teammates for a ribbon (see the link in my signature). Keep those nominations coming in.

    Engineer Specialist(Class I)

    Who: aus-trooper

    Why:
    During the Battle of Quinling, my squad was assigned to defend Village so I asked aus-trooper to grab an engineer kit and mine the bridge on the north side. Most people switch kits right after a mining order is fulfilled, but aus-trooper never complained and asked what else was needed. After laying two mine fields he fell back with the rest of the squad and was a critical part of defending Village from at least eight separate British attacks (none of which were successful). During the ensuing battles, aus-trooper single-handedly destroyed two British tanks, an APC, and two command trucks. This is an extremely difficult task with just an engineer kit, but aus-trooper was extremely effective in sneaking up on enemy assets and getting his explosives on target. In addition, he was always right there to help defend the flag from infantry and to repair the squad's vehicles. Lastly aus-trooper did an amazing job at finding and destroying three enemy fire bases, which denied the enemy its capability to resupply and reinforce. There is no question in my mind that his contributions to the squad was instrumental to its success and I wholeheartedly recommend him for the distinguished Engineer ribbon.

    Distinguished Squad Leader (Class I)

    Who: MarineSeaknight

    Why:
    I would like to nominate MarineSeaknight for the distingushed squad leader ribbon, During this particular round of Qwai river Marine showed excellent leadership abilities in our TOW Humvee squad. Joining Halfway through the round i was assigned a role as gunner in the humvee and we set out, while marine was co-ordinating with the other TOW squad on teamspeak, to hunt the enemy tanks. His excellent communication with the commander and team gave us our first location on enemy armour and with Marine as driver we set out to Destroy them. This was the first of many succesful assaults in which Marine Kept his cool under the pressure of beaing SL, and gave clear and concise orders on what needed to be accomplished and who by, he used good strategy and communicated well with his squads mates and team in order to acheive our orders and our Humvee managed to survive allmost the whole round without being destroyed. It is allways a pleasure to play along side Marine and i hope to again soon.

    Distinguished Squad Leader (Class I)

    Who: Drayu

    Why:
    It was another day on the PR battlefield, this time it was Kashan 16 and I was the commander. I can't for certain remember the exact date however it was very likely Wed. July 2nd.

    Drayu was the Squad Leader of Squad 1. After dispatching the other units to north village, and the bunker complex, I had Drayu take the long route from US Outpost and head to South Village to see what we were up against, after telling me it was clear, and leaving the area (turns out the MEC team would cap the flag about 15mins later) I had him proceed with his squad to the mountains over looking the south bunker. I could already tell that he was a seasoned veteran in PR, prior to this I had not had the chance to be a member of his squad or command over him. Right from the get go, he was very polite and realistic, he understood what his role of an SL was, and was determined to be a team player and do whatever was necessary.

    North Village was experiencing more infantry than was expected, and after that was capped, along with a quick FB being place at the south end of North Village and inside the Bunker complex the squads in the area were dug in.

    I dispatched the UH-60 Seahawks to drop supply crates near south village/on the west side, and even though Squad 1 was far from this area, i asked Drayu if he could rendezvous with me at South Village to build the FB.

    At no point during this quick communication did i receive any questions as to why, he responded very politely and got his squadmates in a humvee that already was adding more miles on it and went down to South Vilalge.

    The Fire base was built, he directed his member to build sandbags and we were in business.

    When I realized that South Bunker was going to need more help, I dispatched Squad 1 who was the closest squad to the AO, once again Drayu had no problems, he alerted his squad and got in the humvee once again, and moved up the mountains set a RP and moved into the South Bunker area.

    Drayu even under heavy fire talked to me extremely calmly, and spotted and marked enemy troop movements, vodniks and supply trucks. Normally I have to ask a SL to spot the target and designate it for me with a move marker if it doesn't come up, Drayu automatically placed a move marker even if it did come up and marked enemy rallys/FB's with the CAS marker. He then had his squad help out another squad in their search for the South Bunker flag.

    As the flag was being capped, and with the arrival of a seperate squad who were trying to distract the resistance, Drayu had his team make a strong perimeter on the upper stairs of South bunker, on the lower level and in and around the bathroom/second floor area.

    As soon as that flag was capped, I knew that South Village was going to be the next objective and while bunkers were being built I knew i had to send a squad to be the guinea pigs and to see what exactly the resistance was at South Village.

    Drayu accepted graciously and with ease and once again ordered his team in the same humvee and began the trek to South Village, setting up temporary Rally points, on the way even though we already had a FB in the area.

    Drayu deserves this ribbon for his understanding of what it takes to be a SL. He had his squad use kits that would be useful, I didn't see a sniper kit used once in his squad, he had rifleman, medics, SAWs and the occasional LAT, or Grenadier. He instructed his medics to revive men of other squads and even put his neck out so his medic could help another squad.

    His leadership proved to be what makes TG great, he told me the important things that were going on, and was really one of the only squads to keep me updated throughout the round.

    At no point did Drayu complain about having to defend or build, which normally happens once the bunkers or South Village are capped. He stayed at South Village for most of the time after it was capped, having his men sweep using the buildings as cover if a vodnik or enemy squad were to come their way, he positioned the humvee in a way that would be safe if it took LAT or gunfire and had his men hunker down for an enemy who would never come their way.

    This type of leadership makes things much easier for the Commander, and Drayu proved to be just the squad leader i was looking for.

    It was a pleasure to be his commander, and I hope that I can be a member of his squad or his SL in rounds to come.

    Support Specialist (Class I)

    Who: Bamboo,Chrisweb

    Why:
    |TG-X| Bamboo & Chrisweb proved that the support ribbon doesn’t necessarily have to go to the user of a heavy machine gun. These individuals helped provide close air support for the troops on the ground as they entered, took, and defended the north bunker, and the south bunker flags. As the choppers flew in close, and low putting themselves in harms way, these players stepped up to the challenge and were able to create clear paths for the troops on the ground, under several occasions. Their use of the mini gun proved to be as essential as the engineers repairing and firing from the side doors.

    At no point while I was on the ground ducking from enemy fire did I hear a Mini-gun overheat, these players used the gun the way it should be, in short spurts, hitting the enemy soldiers and vodniks where it counted, focusing on key enemies soldiers/AA emplacements, and making snipers wish they were never seen in the first place. These Door gunners, also gave strong support in regards to suppressive fire that would leave any enemy players monitor blurry even after they left the area.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Engineer Specialist (Class I)

    Who: Portable.Cougar, McGann, Slurm Cola

    Why:
    Engineers |TG-X| Portable.Cougar , |TG-X| McGann & |TG-X| Slurm Cola proved themselves during this map in a number of ways. Being an engineer on a UH-60 Sea Hawk may seem at times tedious to some but these two individuals proved they were up to the task that was asked of them. While the Seahawks flew into harms way, at no time was I concerned of the well being of the choppers, due to the engineering skills of these players. They wrenched the choppers while they took enemy fire under they could wrench no more.

    Portable.Cougar helped me at one point to build a Bunker at North Village while other squads were more interested in driving past the support truck and getting into the thick end of the battle. Portable.Cougar building the bunker on his own showed his value of teamwork, and taking the time to build the bunker while the Seahawk was hovering above and providing air support above with the other engineers inside. We repeatedly encountered vodnik fire, and the vodniks were held back from capping north village with the bunker placed strategically and in due to Portable.Cougar spending the time to throroughly build it as well as build sandbags around it that I had placed.

    These engineers also put themselves in harms way by using C4 and taking out enemy firebases on the north hills overlooking the bunker complex that were giving the men on the ground trying to take the bunkers constant fire. The taking out of these firebases proved to be essential. And at no time, when a Seahawk was hit, did these guys think twice about wrenching it up so the choppers could safely make their way back to base to re-arm and repair fully. These players proved their worth as teammates and as engineers on this map.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Air Cavalry Specialist (Class I)

    Who: Ristin, Cola88

    Why:
    Pilots |TG-X| Ristin and |TG-X| Cola, were pilots in a transport/support helicopter, that proved to be the backbone of the team during this round. Despite taking heavy AA/Vodnik/ground fire during this entire round these two proved that helping the team was their main priority. They routinely flew in dropping supply crates and troops while under constant fire, and kept me updated on the situation that was unfolding at both the bunker complex and at north village.

    Their piloting skills proved that one can have an Air Cav squad and use it effectively even while under fire. During several engagements these pilots navigated and were able to instruct their crew members to lay down heavy fire in support of the troops on the ground, and even when I needed them to go into hostile enemy territory, they were both up to the challenge and were able to destroy many firebases and even the enemy CP. Without their help and piloting skills many troops would have been stuck behind enemy lines and the match would have ended much more quickly. These two pilots, were essential and I was glad to see members of the |TG-X| who normally are ground pounders in the skies above supporting and helping the team.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Medic Specialist (Class I)

    Who: tralicrifleman

    Why:
    At the start of the round I asked my squad for a volunteer medic. Since no one volunteered I told Tralic to become my squad medic. And I was reluctant at first but was extremely satisfied with his performance. Our task was to construct a firebase and hold a hill between the Bunkers and North Desert. Our mission was recon and to prevent the USMC to get a northern foothold of the bunker complex. The USMC did not this idea and attacked us several times. During each firefight, Tralic stayed back...ready to pounce on the next critically injured person. He made the right priorities with the revives as well, Squad Leader, H-AT, Marksmen, etc, etc. He was popping smoke left and right eating those revives up. And during all this we were in a 15 min long intense firefight. Without his ability as medic, I am almost positive we would have folded on that hill. Not only is he a awesome lifesaver, he is a awesome lifetaker! Always situationally aware of his surroundings, he knows that he must neutralize the threat before attempting revives.



    The distinctive accomplishments of TralicForce brings credit upon himself, the PR community and Tactical gamer.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Distinguished Squad Leader (Class I)

    Who: Katanama

    Why:
    Katanama has consistently demonstrated to be an excellent squad leader. For over a month I have the privilege to fight in his squad, and I really like his leading skills.

    At the start of a round he explains his plan and makes sure everybody is grouped together so we can move out as soon as possible. And during the game he gives clear orders to everybody so that they know what their task is and nobody is walking around purposeless. When there are unexpected problems he is always fast in making a new plan and getting the squad members following it.

    During the game he has good contact with the commander and other squads/team (using teamspeak). Because of this he has a good overview of the game and he adapts his plan to this. His demand to follow his orders and react quick to them makes an effective squad and a noticeable difference on the team.

    Because of his strong leadership and ability to form a strong squad with high team spirit I want to nominate Katanama for the Distinguished Squad Leader ribbon.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Distinguished Defense (Class I)

    Who: Docs_Advocate, w.Warehouse, PhoenixTrill, Hessen, AFSoccer

    Why:
    A few nights ago on Kashan Desert I was fortunate enough to be leading a squad with these five men. We quickly drove to the bunker complex in the middle of the map, preparing to hold off the enemy squad that came to cap the southern bunker until the rest of the team capped North Village and we received reinforcements. Unfortunately the enemy team managed to get to North village and dig in, preventing our team from moving anywhere or capping any other flags. That left my squad alone, without reinforcements for over half an hour while at minimum two or three squads, complete with vehicles and a firebase charged us relentlessly. My squad dug in tight, and held the flag single-handedly for an astonishing amount of time. Everyone knew where to keep their guns pointed, and while we eventually were pushed off the flag my squad amazingly attacked and destroyed the defenders and took it back all by themselves! Our squad also accounted for around 1/3 of the entire team's kills. I have never seen a squad perform so well, each and every member knew exactly what to do without telling me and the enemy team never did take that bunker back. Finally our team was able to capture North Village and come to assist us, and we quickly overwhelmed the enemy and pushed them back to their main. These men deserve this ribbon because of their overwhelming teamwork and squad cohesion and their overwhelming firepower. Rarely do I see a seemingly random squad such as this triumph over so much.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    volorous Unit (Class I)

    Who: Dirtboy, Zaboo, TheGreatNardini, BigGayAl, Delta*RandyShugart*

    volorous Unit (Class 2)

    Who: TheSkudDestroyer

    Why:
    The teamwork and communication during this round of Qwai was absolutely flawless. Dirtboy was invaluable at the start of the round as we guarded the South Bridge from multiple APC's, tanks, and light skinned vehicles. We repeatedly took out the enemy firebase accross the river with HAT. Big Gay Al was extremely fast with a ready supply of ammo - Dirtboy never ran out. When things got heavy Zaboo was quick to revive anyone fallen in combat. He revived dirtboy several times while he was engaging a tank. Meanwhile, the rest of the squad simultaneously engaged an enemy squad across the bridge. Using combined fire we successfully neutralized an enemy rally from range. Once again Big Gay Al was awesome on the ammo - the fighting was so heavy that I myself had run down to only 2 or 3 clips. This action continued for 25 straight minutes, with dirtboy reaching 20+ kills and no deaths (Thanks to Zaboo's speeding revives) from engaging vehicles and the enemy firebase.

    During this fight at south bridge, the team was pushed back to Government office. Using leapfrogging we secured the government office and constructed a bunker. Dirtboy and Al engaged the enemy tank (Distracting it) while we made it inside. Eventually with some help from friendly AT units the tank was killed. As the battle tide worsened for our USMC team, my squad fell back to Processing plant. We constructed a FB for the team to the north of the compound. We then built a bunker on top of processing where we would remain until the very end of the game.

    Nardini picked up marksman and finished off almost any enemy that came into range. We confiscated both enemy HAT's and ended up using 3 HAT's. Big Gay Al kept them all readily supplied on ammo.

    Not once did the flag fall. Even when we lost the bunker in the very end to a JDAM, it was no consequence as Randy and Nardini went medic and helped us storm the rooftop again.

    We lost 4-0. I know our squad did it's part.

    When a unit works together behind their squad leaders orders, that's already great. But when there is a level of communication where the squad is a unit instead of subordinates, that's when real teamwork shines. Each one would drop whatever they were doing to revive another squad mate, or rush to assist in defending a flank with a friendly pinned down.

    Dirtboy finished in 1st overall in game. He had 21 flag defenses, best anti-tank.
    Zaboo finished with 15 heals and 16 revives (outstanding), and of course best medic.

    It was an excellent display of teamwork.
