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



By order of the Council of Admirals, after completion of the competition portion of the Meet, there will be a drawing at this month's SotM for:


PRIZE GIVE-AWAY
:!: 10 Million Energy Credits :!:


The scheduling of the April Meet is now OPEN.


Time to schedule this month's Meet!

    The leading option currently is Saturday the 20th.

    The other choices are: Sunday the 21st, Saturday the 13th, and Sunday the 14th.

Date choices are a bit more limited, because I am in rehearsals for a play the last weekend in March.

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 for the competition in the first hour. 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 TFO queues, and just hanging out together on Discord. We are a casual fleet, and participation in any portion of SotM is optional.

Rules for Competition: The new rules have been approved by the Command Council for the competition portion of the meet. The winner of the competition is determined principally by attendance during the first 15 minutes of the meet ("grace period"). The squad with the most members logging into the Discord channel during the grace period wins. However, if any squad shows up with its full membership during the grace period but still does not have enough numbers to win the competition, then the result will be a tie between all squads with their full membership attending and the squad with the largest number of members attending. If there is a tie, then the winner of the competition will be determined either by dice roll (".roll" using the Security Bot on Discord), or by any other method agreed upon between the tying parties (e.g., PvP match, trivia question, etc.). Any method other than dice roll for resolving a tie, must be approved by the convener of the meet (normally me) as being swift enough to be resolved simply without taking up the whole meet or leaving the winner undetermined beyond the end of the meet.

Yeah, was going to do it yesterday, but was too busy (painting garage all day). Will also be sending out e-mail reminders to those about to get kicked for inactivity at the end of the month, which might motivate a few to login and check their e-mail in time to notice the the SotM PM in their box. :)

Your Squad Needs YOU!
Saturday, April 20 at 21:00 UTC
(i.e., 10PM BST, 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!

By order of the Council of Admirals, after completion of the competition portion of the Meet, there will be a drawing at this month's SotM for:


PRIZE GIVE-AWAY
:!: 10 Million Energy Credits :!:



The Meet will convene on Discord in a channel labeled "Squad of the Month" at the time set forth above.

Rules for Competition: The winner of the competition is determined principally by attendance during the first 15 minutes of the meet ("grace period"). The squad with the most members logging into the Discord channel during the grace period wins. However, if any squad shows up with its full membership during the grace period but still does not have enough numbers to win the competition, then the result will be a tie between all squads with their full membership attending and the squad with the largest number of members attending. If there is a tie, then the winner of the competition will be determined either by dice roll (".roll" using the Security Bot on Discord), or by any other method agreed upon between the tying parties (e.g., PvP match, trivia question, etc.). Any method other than dice roll for resolving a tie, must be approved by the convener of the meet (normally me) as being swift enough to be resolved simply without taking up the whole meet or leaving the winner undetermined beyond the end of the meet.

After the competition we will have activities for the remainder of the evening, including: prize drawing, challenge match PvP, build advice, teaming up to cruise the queues, and just hanging out together on TS. :)

Congratulations to MACO's Bravo Squad ("Death Dealers") for winning the Squad of the Month meet for April 2019! MACO won by mustering three of its roster during the opening grace period, just edging out Engineering's Charlie Squad with two. Honorable showings of one each were made by Engineering's Alpha, Science's Epsilon, and Tactical's Gamma.

A prize of EC from our Fleet Bank was also awarded based on bot race among attenders, with the winner as follows:


10 Million Energy Credits - Zoltan417


Kudos to all who participated in the meet, including, the prize give-away, successful run on the Badlands battlezone, a Colony Invasion Simulation (to level 29), and cruising of queues that went on until 11:30 PM CT; including as follows:

Ashes and Embers
Cmdraftbrn
Hatch
