I was thinking -- there are tons of people on this site and elsewhere who aspire to become a great players.  But as we all know, a great help in this process is having similarly minded people to platoon with to learn from, pad stats with, and so on.  Plus, in a -G- sense, people need to learn how to play like a team and not like pubstars.

 

So I, acting with the full authority of unofficial grunt in G, thought of a plan.  Why not let -G- help?

 

Something like this:

 

- G creates a new tag on our TS (apes, chimps, or bonbos depending on skill/horniness).  These people can see/join platoon and TC channels, but not clam wars stuff.

- Anyone who meets minimum standards can play on our TS whenever they want.  The goal is to help ~blue at least recent people connect and platoon with similarly skilled/motivated people, including -G-s.  Other top clans are welcome, as they are now.  Retards or trash obviously get the boot.

- Perhaps one night a week we can organize competitive play.  TC or HB or TB, with hopefully 4+ teams of competitive clans and blunicum pubbies fighting to improve skill and have fun.  Hopefully other top clans will buy into this, to ensure we can play at a set time each week.

 

What G gets out of this:

- Feeder pipe for talented, rising players

- Community goodwill

- We get to play TC again, which I miss

 

What pubbies get out of this:

- A chance to play/meet/platoon with other top players

- A chance to work your way into a top clan even if your stats may not look purple enough

- A chance to experience competitive play

 

What do you pubbies think?  Now obviously I would have to sell the idea to both you pubbies and G leadership but I think it could be a good thing.

 

UPDATE:

- looking for interested pubs to apply

- also looking for clans and callers to organize a server TC night, using G ts and G members/callers/pubs as needed

I'll just go in the corner and wallow in my greenness.

Great idea.  I think you'll have a lot harder time selling it to the -G- leadership than to us pubbies, lol.

Really like this. I wanted to do something a bit similar with M--M while I was there, but at that time we didnt have enough top players to really make a huge community impact

I dunno.  It depends on how exclusive we made it.  Purple recent blue overall would be fine, but probably too exclusive.  Blue recent green overall might do.

Actually I think they'd do it. The recruitment process for -G- is shall I say... fucking annoying. Did it once, got tired of trying to pester "busy" eval guys.

 

So by doing this, they get a feel for potential recruits, which speeds up their eval process... as well as makes -G- a more "open" environment to play in. I don't know any -G- players (save for Taka) in anything but playing against them in pubs, so for someone like me.. I don't really have a reason to go to their TS except for diplo.

 

This initiative creates an environment where people can connect better with -G- players... as well as give people like me who may want to be in a Tank Company from time to time a place to go.

Would you bulls be willing to commit to having say Friday night be a regular TC night?  IE, get a commander and whoever you have on and run TCs for an hour or two.  If you lack a commander or bodies G and decent pubbies can fill in.  You interested?

Oh yes, blue recent and green overall would be best.  (not biased at all, lol)

I can bring it up tonight and see how my FCs take it? We've never seemed to have much interest in TCs before, hence why we're never seen running them.

 

But I could potentially bribe my FCs with a gold bonus for running one....

 

Also we're moving into Mexico so that + potential involvement in the current conflict could also put a damper on TCs. I'll get back to ya.

 

I personally like the idea though.
