I can fit in wherever (PL/SL). Assuming I'm not dying of sunburn - supposed to be hanging out in Hyde Park on Saturday with a bunch of animators. We don't get many opportunities to tan is all I'm saying.

I should be able to PL/SL. I'd also like to try SG at some point (not necessarily this CtA), so if someone can't make it or wants a break, I can step up.
I'd also be interested in taking part in/running an Air Squadron. It's something we're pretty good at, is showy and can really be effective against the limp-wristed PCG :P

I would be happy to RO, alternatively SL if needed at the CtA, but atm not sure if I can make it at Sunday

Cheers Sino, its a good list to have floating about!
We should probably keep a note of that somewhere for others to make use of it too.

Can a mod please sticky the Call To Arms guide ? http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/foru...ight=Call+Arms
Thanks in advance
It seems we're a bit sleepy for this CtA, i don't see much activity in the thread. Wake up people, it's next Sunday !
Do we agree that we're not using Dewi's coms system ? (he seems to imply in his answer to my post). If so, do we use the usual setup (StratGir with added SG), or the one that Quanta introduced during last CtA (Platoon operator between SG and PL) ? I'm not sure what platoons leaders thought about it, some seemed ok, and some seemed very frustrated with it.

There is a good alternative to using either Dewi's system or the old one (woth SLs and ROs) and that is using a middle route between the two. It would be easy to combine things so that the "war council" from last StratGir is kept intact, while retaining ROs as PL's contact person in each squad, and leaving SLs in their own command loop, as before. That would make PLs more engaged in high-level strategy, and give them more people to talk to, while leaving squads free to do their jobs as on previous Calls to Arms.
Letting PLs keep their talk to whole platoon bind requires a little bit of fiddling, but otherwise, this might turn out really well, I think. I think I'll be home in time to implement this in time for StratGir, if people want to try it then. Or for weekend play.

Surely the best solution is to simply have the old setup, but add duplicates of the setup as we need them... Like we have done before.
Any cross communication between them can just filter up through to the several PLs, can it not? After all, the supremes have the final call on the general decision making during CTA, so that frees up enough brain space for PLs to handle comms better.
-SG1 Control of:
--PL1 Control of:
---SL/RO1 (A) - Alpha
---SL/RO2 (B) - Bravo
---SL/RO3 (C) - Charlie
---SL/RO4 (D) - Delta
--PL2 Control of:
---SL/RO5 (AB Style) - Echo
---SL/RO6 (CD Style) - Foxtrot
--PL3 Control of:
---SL/RO7 (ABCD Style) - Golf
-SG2 Control of:
--PL4 Control of:
---SL/RO8 (A) - Hotel
---SL/RO9 (B) - India
---SL/RO10 (C) - Juliet
---SL/RO11 (D) - Kilo
--PL5 Control of:
---SL/RO12 (AB Style) - Lima
---SL/RO13 (CD Style) - Mike
--PL6 Control of:
---SL/RO14 (ABCD Style) - November
--Special squad commander (PL): (?)
---Tank squad SL/RO (A) - Oscar
---Air Squad SL/RO (B) (Ground crew cycles when cooldowns) - Papa
---Para Support SL/RO (C) (with transport support via Air Squad) - Quebec
---Repair Crew SL/RO (D) - Romeo
could be done in a AB - CD Setup, and give one special platoon to each major SG.
Seems like a simple system that would fit in with our previously set up comms ideas.

I would recommend we keep each platoon in the same format, I felt it was far too complicated the last time, plus smaller channels means newbies will feel more able to ask questions. People new to a group will shy away from speaking if the group is too large

I'm up for filling in any role, from SG (assistant) down to SL.

Spreadsheet created! I've scoured all 3 CtA threads and put names down of people who signed up. Sorry if I missed anyone! Feel free to add your names down here, the platoons themselves will be sorted closer to Sunday:

Close! It's QuantaCat, Cooper and MrEclectic. I'm just website editor and Mumble wizard (admin).

Im thinking that I might be part of the air squad, though I wouldnt consider myself proficient enough to lead the air squad tbh, so if anything, id probably like to fill the role of backup SL or RO in the case that somebody need me. Basically, consider all others before shoving me in one of those positions, but I will if needed. Looks like SL wont be a problem, but if more ROs are needed, that might be the best position to fill.
ID quite like to PL and SG at some point during one of these group things, because it seems like more fun to do the job in conjunction with several other platoons about, but I think I should probably give this one a miss, because ive been out of the game quite a while!
