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
:!: AMENDED -- SEE BELOW :!:


The scheduling of the March Meet is now OPEN.


Hello All!
Time to schedule the next SotM! Dates are a bit more limited this month, because I have a conflict on the weekend of March 27-28. If the date chosen is either the 13th or 14th, then scheduling will close Monday, to allow sufficient notice of the Meet.

    The leading option is Saturday the 20th.

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


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 and prize give-away in the first half-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). The date and time chosen depends ultimately on who wants to participate and who will actually show up.

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 winner of the competition is determined by attendance during the first 15 minutes of the meet ("the 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.

hehe, yep time to announce for sure.

Scheduling has been open over a week. No conflicts were raised to the proposed date. Therefore, the next Squad of the Month meet will be:

Saturday, March 20 at 19:00 UTC (i.e., 7PM GMT, 3PM EDT, 2PM CDT, 12PM PDT) :!:

Note, the time is an hour earlier in Europe, due to the change to Daylight Saving Time in the U.S.


The scheduling of this month's meet is now CLOSED.

Your Squad Needs YOU!
Saturday, March 20, at 19:00 UTC
(i.e., 7PM GMT, 3PM EDT, 2PM CDT, 12PM PDT)
NOTE, THE TIME IS AN HOUR EARLIER IN EUROPE, DUE TO THE CHANGE TO DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME IN THE U.S.
(Despite Brexit, Britain will be included in the European time difference :vulcan: )


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!

As always, after completion of the competition portion of the Meet, there will be a drawing at this month's SotM for an award of Energy Credits. However, because of a large deposit to the Fleet Bank this last month by an anonymous donor (Sysil ;) ) and by order of Fleet Command, the prize drawing for SotM from now on is:


PRIZE GIVE-AWAY
:!: :!: :!: 20 MILLION :!: :shock: :o
ENERGY CREDITS


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

The winning squad gains the Squad of the Month trophy to display in its squad forum until the next meet, and each member of the squad whose attendance contributed to the victory is awarded an SotM ribbon.

Congratulations to Tactical's Gamma Squad ("Vipers") for winning the Squad of the Month meet for March 2021! Tactical won by dice roll, after mustering two members during the initial Grace Period and tying on attendance with Engineering's Charlie. Honorable squad showings of one member each were made by Engineering's Alpha & Beta, and Section 31's Alpha.

A prize of 20 million EC from our Fleet Bank was awarded based on dice roll among attenders, with the prize going to:
