YOU :!: are Invited to
The Fleet-Wide Squad of the Month Meet!


The scheduling of the FEBRUARY Meet is now OPEN.

Hello All,

Getting started a bit early on scheduling for February, because it is a short month!

    Currently, I am favoring Saturday the 24th.

    The other choices are: Sunday the 25th, Sunday the 18th, Saturday the 17th, Sunday the 11th, and Saturday the 10th. If the choice is to be the earliest weekend, then selection will have to close by Monday the 5th to allow for enough notice.


Scheduling Rules:
Post your scheduling choice in a reply below. Note that dates you say you cannot attend are more important than the dates that you say you prefer in deciding the date of the meet. We are trying to get the highest turn out of all squad members. Thus, if 5 people prefer a date but 1 more can attend only on another date, then the date on which 6 can attend will win even though 5 of the 6 preferred a different date. It is assumed that you can attend all the date options, unless you clearly state otherwise in a post below or have communicated that fact to me directly.

Extra weight is given to the votes of squad captains, squad XOs, and anyone who is actually committing to showing up at a time (as opposed to "maybe" showing). Scheduling depends ultimately on who wants to participate and who will actually show up. In order to get the maximum turn out from US and European members, our starting time is traditionally set on a weekend at 10 PM in UK (which in winter is the same as GMT/UTC), but the time chosen depends on who is committing to be there.

What is Squad of the Month?
The Squad of the Month ("SotM") meet is a monthly fleet event which starts with an inter-squad competition to determine the Fleet's Squad of the Month. The competition is followed by group activities which may include: build advice, challenge match PvP, teaming up to cruise the PvE/PvP queues, and just hanging out together on TS. We are a casual fleet, and participation in any portion of SotM is optional.

The rules for the competition can be found posted here. The competition portion of the meet is not designed for perfect balance; there is no great honor in winning, nor dishonor in losing. It is intended mostly to provide a focus activity for everyone at the event which allows us to hang out together, improve our gaming skills, and have fun. :)

Your Squad Needs YOU!
Saturday, February 24 at 22:00 UTC
(i.e., 10PM GMT, 5PM EDT, 4PM CDT, 2PM PDT)

Squad of the Month meet is THIS SATURDAY!.
Attendance is a big part of scoring the winner. Don't let your squad go down without a fight!

The Meet will convene on Team Speak in a channel labeled "Squad of the Month" at the time set forth above. The rules for the Meet are here. The squad competition is in the first 30 minutes to an hour and is open to current members of any of the recognized division squads in the Fleet. After that we will have build advice, a challenge match PvP, teaming up to cruise the queues, and just hanging out together on TS.

Congratulations to the Gamma Squad (Vipers) for winning the Squad of the Month meet for February 2018!

Engineering's Charlie Squad won the attendance portion of the contest this month, with 33% of its roster mustering during the initial grace period. Showings were made by Engineering's Alpha, MACO's Bravo, and Tactical's Gamma. In a break with precedent, Alpha challenged Charlie for the title. The Alpha CO battled solo against two Charlie defenders (lead by the fearless Lieutenant Commander Tyr in the absence of the squad's captain ;)). After a long, pounding exchange Alpha triumphed over Charlie with a score of 9 to 0. Gamma Commander Sysil then lead his squad in a challenge against Alpha. Gamma allowed Alpha to augment its strength by adding 1st Lieutenant ZombieTrucker to its number, making it another one against two match. In a nail biter of a fight :shock: , Gamma won through with a score of 7 to 6.

Kudos to all who participated in the contest, build advice, and cruising of queues that went on until midnight CT; including as follows:



BlkDrac
Cmdraftbrn
Hatch
Irishhawk
Kuvak
N5XTR ("Joel")
Sysil
The Borg
Tyr444
ZombieTrucker

7 to 6? That seems like a match tighter than a jimmy hat.

Good show guys, sorry I couldn't be there.

Sorry I was not able to make it. I got stuck with a 2 year old who needed my full attention. Glad to hear Charlie had a great showing. Thanks for taking the lead Tyr. Take a bottle of Romulan Ale for your trouble.
