    Ok suddenly there were a buttload of posts so I'm not going to reply directly to what coffee said, but, yes. The idea is that we should have a supreme giraffe ordering platoons around, rather than each squad by himself. That was just the way it turned out that one night due to an influx of giraffes no sane man could have foreseen.

    This was mostly because our comm lines broke down and Cooper didnt have a bind setup for the Special Giraffe channel that we took refuge in. Eventually orders came through though.

    Uhm, guys, remember last time that we got like 200 people, and a portion of TRAM was hunting us? Well, those were the good old days...

    We may not get 200 people, but we'll sure get TRAM, NCTO and every lonewolf hunting us this time. Hurray...

    Definitely. Let this one be the huge, extravagant sequel, with unlimited resources budget: armour columns, air squadrons, massive galaxy drops. Let's even have everyone trial lashers or lancers, and have a laser show!

    So, Esamir then. Because we're likely not getting 200 people on Indar during primetime. :P

    I volunteer for squad leading.

    HOWEVER, I would only be able to listen to the SL-SL chat, not speak in it, due to bugged Mumble. See this post. If that caveat is unacceptable, disregard my application.

    Quoting ourselves now, are we, MrEclectic?

    Esamir is probably the best bet. We need to meet up, those of us who are interested in making this happen (SG, PL, welcome platoon volunteers and others who want to help). I suggest Mumble, tomorrow night at 1930 UK time.

    Agenda:
    • Assignment of roles. Who does what?
    • How to handle newcomers and shuttling people into squads.
    • Walkthrough of comms and comms check, specifically SG-to-PL comms which we haven't tried before.


    Anything else?

    As Black Adder would say, "It's the only way to hold an intelligent conversation" :P

    Was meaning to reply to Boriz's post. Hm, ok, not so intelligent...

    I can't make it until about 21:00 UTC Have baby to bath and wife to feed after work.

    Can I make a suggestion though, decide the continent Wednesday and make sure you tell everyone to log off there before joining the CTA on Thursday.

    I didnt use the google thing until now. I think a lot of people glanced over it.

    Just chucked my name in the form as I'm willing to help out. However I will likely be on a bit later on (8ish UK on Thursday), but last time still seemed to be building squads around that time.

    Can't really do that, as it needs to be a continent without a queue and you never know if an alert will be on (alert=queue).

    There's a good tip, actually! Though if the continent is full already, we're still not going to make it there. And also. We're going to have to go to which one of Indar and Esamir that has not got an alert going, likely. Esamir + alert is going to be a problem most likely. Welcome platoon could possibly be on some other continent, that has no risk of pop-lock, though. As soon as people log on, if they're not already on the target continent, get them over to the welcome platoon continent, and into the queue to the op continent. When they get a slot to warp, shuttle them over to a squad with free slots.

    Sorry for asking, potentially dumb questions. On the night itself, do the regular grunt types - like me- just log onto Mumble and wait to get sorted? From looking at this thread there is going to be quite a lot of us having a crack at this Are we short any sort of leadership roles? I don't know enough to be that ​effective, but if do need them, I have done it in other games, hundreds of times over.
