  • [EVENT] Tactical Gamer In-House scrim - Tallil Outskirts


    The time for more organized play has finally come.

    On Friday, December 21st TG will be hosting our first Internal Scrim, pitting two Commander-led teams of 39 players against one another in a pitched battle for supremacy of Tallil Outskirts.

    What is an Internal Scrim?

    An internal scrim is an organized match that has both teams comprised entirely of TG members. TacticalGamer has run many internal scrims before in titles such as BF2, BF2142, Point of Existence, Project Reality, ArmA as well as other titles that we've had or currently do have active membership playing. We haven't run one for Squad.....yet, but the time is upon to give it a go.


    How can I play?

    In my previous experiences at TG, all scrimmages required everyone that wanted to participate to register in response to a post like this one, indicating their willingness to participate. People would post what kit/role they would be willing to play, including Commander. Sign-ups were always first-come, first-serve with the exception that a TG supporting member would always get preference in the order over non-sms. Once we went past the server capacity in sign-ups, those players would still be considered part of the scrim and be assigned to teams for planning, etc, but they were on stand-by in case someone else ahead of them had to drop out. Considering that people generally always backed out, it usually worked out that everyone got to play.

    Fast-forward to Squad today. We have a server with 80 slots available, not the 64 we had for BF2-based titles (or even fewer for other games). To be perfectly honest, we probably still don't have the regular, core player base that we had in PR and so we probably couldn't even fill a 64-slot server today. However, that doesn't mean we can't still run an organized match.


    Fine, so how are we going to work this?

    So to make this work, we're still going to run sign-ups. We're looking for players to volunteer to be Squad Leader and we're looking for 2 players to volunteer to be team commander. We also just want general sign-ups, because as all of you know by now, roles on the team for SLs are not just infantry roles, but also logistics, armor, etc. If you're not comfortable being an infantry SL, you can still volunteer to lead a logistics squad, a tank squad, an apc squad, a scout squad - whatever. Bottom line is don't be afraid to volunteer for some leadership. If you absolutely do not want to SL, specify that when you sign up. We're going to try to mix TG players into the squads as evenly as possible (more on that below), so just specify what role you want to play.

    Once sign-ups close, the two commanders will work with the admin team to pick factions that they will command and the teams will be divided up. After that, each team is going to receive their own private Discord channels to begin planning for the battle.


    Sounds great, but how will the server get filled?

    Best question of the day! We're going to fill the server with players that join. We will run advertisements on the server until the day of the event to encourage sign-ups. The day of the event we will run broadcasts informing the players when the event will happen. At the time for the event to start, we will hold a 5-minute briefing for the server to let everyone know that only designated players can assume SL position and to fill up the squads. Once that is done, the SLs will brief their squads on the plan, get kits sorted, etc. The CO can work with the SLs during this briefing as well, but by this time they should all have the plan figured out. After this briefing period concludes, the admins will restart the match and it will be "Go!" time. The admins will monitor the server and make sure that new players understand what is happening and enforce the SL rules. It might be a little bumpy at first, but if we follow these 2 simple rules:

    1) Players play
    2) Admins admin

    If we can follow those, everything should be fine.


    I'm sold! This sounds like fun! How do I sign up?

    Now this is the best question, forget the other one!

    It's pretty easy. TacticalBot has already been programmed to handle your registrations.

    Follow these instructions:
    • Open a DM to TacticalBot
    • Type "!signmeup <list the role or roles you are volunteering for here>" on the message line
    • Press <Enter>
    • Profit

    See? Simple!!

    Make sure it you send a DM, not a message in a public channel as those will be rejected and you won't be registered for the event. The admins will receive a notification of your registration and we will make sure we post those sign-ups for all to see when we receive them.

    In the future, you can ask TacticalBot about any upcoming events by sending him the "!events" command.


    A few last words

    The admin team intends on trying to make these scrims a monthly event. If they pick up in popularity and as everyone gets used to them we may begin to run them more frequently, but for now we're going to stick with once a month due to the logistics of the event and allowing enough time for proper planning.

    If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post them below or you can directly message myself or any of the other admins on Discord.

    Thanks everyone! Looking forward to playing a much more organized game with all of you soon!
