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


:party: PRIZE GIVE-AWAY :party:

At the continued generosity of Kivrin :bolian:,
there will be a drawing at this month's SotM for the following prizes:


:arrow: Deep Space 9 Holographic Bridge Officers
(choices from 1 Loriss and 1 James Kurland)


The scheduling of the March Meet is now OPEN.


Time to schedule the March Meet!

    The leading option currently is Saturday the 23rd.

    The other choices are: Sunday the 24th, Saturday the 16th, and Sunday the 17th.

Date choices are a bit more limited, because I will be away the last weekend in March. Note, due to the US going on daylight saving time on March 10, the start time for the meet in Europe will be an hour earlier than usual (i.e., the start time will be 21:00 UT/GMT).

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.

Your Squad Needs YOU!
Saturday, March 23 at 21:00 UTC
(i.e., 9PM 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!

:party: PRIZE GIVE-AWAY :party:

At the continued generosity of Kivrin :bolian:,
there will be a drawing at this month's SotM for the following prizes:


:arrow: Deep Space 9 Holographic Bridge Officers
(choices from 1 Loriss and 1 James Kurland)


In addition, our Council of Admirals has approved a drawing at SotM for an award of
:arrow: 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 Engineering's Charlie Squad ("The Aesir") for winning the Squad of the Month meet for March 2019! Charlie is on a roll now, winning two month's in a row and only its second time history. :) Charlie won by a challenge dice roll to break a 4-way-tie between it and Engineering's Alpha, Science's Epsilon, and Tactical's Gamma with each squad mustering one of their roster during the initial 15-minute grace period.

At the generousity of
Kivrin, drop-box prizes were given away to lucky attenders at the beginning of the Meet. Prize winners were determined by highest dice roll using the Discord Security Bot. The winners of Kivrin's prizes were as follows:

Deep Space 9 Holographic Bridge Officers
Lorris - T'Hor
James Kurland -
Tyr444


In addition to the above, by order of the Council of Admirals, an award of 10 million EC from our Fleet Bank was also raffled among attenders, with the winner as follows:
