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


The scheduling of the APRIL Meet is now OPEN.

Hello All,

Time to schedule this month's Meet!

    Currently, I am favoring Saturday the 28th.

    The other choices are: Sunday the 29th, Sunday the 22nd, Saturday the 21st, and Sunday the 15th.


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. :)

Selection now has been open just over a week. Unless there is a conflict posted in the next 24 hours, will close selection and go with Saturday the 28th.

Your Squad Needs YOU!
Saturday, April 27 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!

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.

I'd also like to apologize for the slowness of my response, and my inability to attend. That's about an hour and a half into my shift that day; hopefully things will settle down soon and I'll actually know what's coming before a week or two out.

Hope everyone has fun!

No problem. :bolian: Attendance is not a requirement. We will be going until midnight central time if you get off work in time and feel like running an STF or two. Maybe you will get better luck next month on the scheduling.

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

Gamma Squad won the attendance portion of the contest for this month, with 40% of its roster mustering during the initial grace period. Showings were made by MACO's Bravo and Engineering's Alpha squad. Bravo challenged Gamma for the month's title, after Gamma agreed to set victory at best total score of two matches -- one in space and one ground! The ground match came first, with two Bravo marines attacking two Gamma red shirts in the Assimilated Cruiser scenario. In a ferocious exchange, Bravo scored 5 kills to Gamma's 2 on the ground. Gamma rebounded in the space match, scoring 5 kills to Bravo's 0 in space, giving Gamma a final victory score of 7 to 5.

Kudos to all who participated in the contest, grand PvP challenge match, a long fought Colony ground invasion mission (to a new record of wave 30!), multiple goes at the Kobayashi Maru event to level 19!, build advice, and cruising of queues that went on until after midnight CT; including as follows:
