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


The scheduling of the JANUARY Meet is now OPEN.

Hello All,

It is time to select the next meet date!

    Currently, I am favoring Saturday the 27th.

    The other choices are: Sunday the 28th, Sunday the 21st, Saturday the 20th, Sunday the 14th, and Saturday the 13th. If the choice is to be the earliest weekend, then selection will have to close by Monday the 8th 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, January 27 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 January 2018!

MACO's Bravo Squad won the attendance portion of the contest for the first time this month, with 40% of its roster mustering during the initial grace period. Showings were made by Engineering's Alpha and Tactical's Gamma. Gamma challenged Bravo for the title and agreed to a handicap, allowing Bravo to augment its numbers with Alpha's CO. That put Gamma with 2 attacking ships facing 3 defending ships for Bravo. Bravo put up a good fight, but Gamma won in the end with a score of 10 to 1.

Kudos to all who participated in the contest, build advice, at least one fairly successful Colony ground invasion mission (to wave 8), and cruising of queues that went on until after midnight CT; including as follows:



Cmdraftbrn
Compston
Hatch
Kuvak
N5XTR ("Joel")
Pattern
Sysil
Zoltan417
ZombieTrucker
