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
:!: 20 Million Energy Credits :!:


The scheduling of the APRIL meet is now OPEN.


Hello All!
Time to schedule the next meet!

    The leading option is Saturday the 30th.

    The other choices are: Saturday the 16th, Sunday the 17th, , or Sunday the 24th.
I have a conflict with Saturday the 23rd.

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. Be sure of your commitment when requesting a date change, not showing up on a date that has been changed to accommodate your schedule will mean your choice will get less weight in future picks.

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.

April 16th and 17th are no good for me, but April 24th or 30th would work.

Your Squad Needs YOU!
Saturday, April 30 at 19:00 UTC
(i.e., 8PM BST, 3PM EDT, 2PM CDT, 12PM 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
:!: 20 Million Energy Credits :!:


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

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. 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 April 2022! Gamma won with an attendance victory, by mustering four of its members during the initial grace period. Honorable showings were made as follows: Engineering's Charlie x2; Engineering's Alpha x1; Engineering Beta x1; MACO's Bravo x1; and Section 31's Archer x1.


A prize of 20 million EC from our Fleet Bank was awarded based on dice roll among attenders. Although Stromgold had the highest roll, he passed on the prize which went to the second highest roller Jacen017, who was limited by his free-to-play account in how much he EC he could accept so the prize was shared with the next highest roller as follows:


Jacen017 -- 15 million EC
OcieDenver -- 5 million EC


Kudos to all who participated in the meet with activities including: the initial competition; prize giveaway; grand PvP Match, successful runs of the Gon'Cra and Badlands battlezones; cruising of TFO queues, build advice, and/or hanging out on Discord that went on until 10:00 PM Central Time; including as follows:


AshBlaster
Aukora
Bardic_Nerd
Cmdraftbrn
Compston
EricBLivingston
Irishhawk ("Drake")
Jacen017
Jem_389
Lorisa
NDStache11
N5XTR ("Joel")
Ocie Denver

Paragod516 ("Teklor")
