    Post [VS] TVA Fridays

    When - 20:00 CET (19:00 GMT)

    Where - TVA Team Speak

    Why - After many successful TVA joint ops it's been highlighted that lots and lots of members want to make it a regular community event. The aim is to produce a more strategic atmosphere than just the usual Liaison info. Outfits will aim to cooperate tactically and coordinate tightly on both a small scale and large. Game play will range from AA & AirFOB nests, Spec Ops infiltration and dedicated air squadrons, to armored columns; our trademark TacGir squads and other things we are yet to discover. From mixed-outfit specialist squads working together on specific objectives to large scale logistics and flanking, the aim here is to do it the way the game inteded. Big.

    There's a lot of excitement around this amongst TVA commanders, myself chief amongst them. I can't wait for more experiences like the ones we've had during prime-time alerts and ops of recent times!

    More info to come as and when...

    UPDATE:

    Official launch date Friday 24th January



    - TRAC and NCTO are apparently each arranging respective joint ops events for this date. There's talk of wanting to arrange a server wide alliance bout.

    - We'll be focusing on tight coordination with [DIGT] in particular, an outfit not to dissimilar to our own.

    - Clear your diaries! I'd love to see a great turnout for this and i hope people can make it.

    - There's potential for CCEU squad practice if people want to do that.

    - Teamspeak server information will be made available, though probably not on a public forum. In the meantime, please ensure you download the client.

    I'd rather we went on TS for that. It's a good opportunity for us to be tighter integrated with the other TVA outfits. Also, since people will have it installed and configured, perhaps there will be even more ad hoc mixed squads with other TVA outfits.

    Especially for doing tanking or ESFs, mixed TVA squads are great.

    And finally, on many occasions VC, ISK, etc have joined mumble. I say it's only polite we pay them a visit this time

    yes, yes, YES!

    Also agree, that we should jump on their TS. Very little required with lots of potential benefits

    The nights when the TVA is active are definitely among the best. I hope this is successful.

    regarding ts:
    we currently don't have the capability to sub-divide squads into their own channels there (tva). depending on attendance, this might become necessary though, so maybe it should be pre-configured.

    Sure. I'll pass that on to Stanis and Maelstrome.

    Very excited by this. Thanks to those who've been working with TVA already.

    Will the event have a main purpose? I.e. continent lock or will it be dynamic?

    It will have an objective but it will largely depend on the state of the continents. Planetside is so unpredictable that the actual goal probably won't be announced till a few minutes before the ops start. I'll be taking the helm for it, unless anyone particularly objects to that.

    Expect a few teething issues to begin with, but I'm confident that as the evening goes on we'll see some great things.

    It is a bit sad that this clashes with Freedom Friday but I guess that's not something we really have control over.

    I'm happy with you taking helm Nick - I really enjoyed Friday so.

    Yes thought this, too. Maybe we should consider another day for dedicated NC-playing; may I suggest Wednesdays or Tuesdays for this as RPS is not planning really stuff on these days? Purple Wednesdays are quite dead I think?

    Asked Stanis & we now have an RPS platoon & Sub channels in the "TVA Combined ops" section.

    One thing I'd suggest: As we'll all be using TVA TS rather than just liaisons, we should consider inviting other outfit members join our squads / channels and running some mixed squads.

    Edit: This will mean setting up TS whisper lists. Suggest the best option is:
    1) PTT
    2) Another key that is set to whisper to all RPS Platoon channels
    3) (optional) the command whipser list for those that set themselves as channel commander for inter-platoon stuff (which some of us will already have)

    This will basically give us "squad chat" and a "All platoon chat" each. Which seems the simplest setup.

    Combined ops is a nice idea. Might be good to get a DIGT SL for example - might learn a thing or two ahead of CCEU that way too.

    Ah shit, was about to start enthusing about this then remembered I have a house warming to attend on friday. Sounds like it should be a lot of fun anyway. Mixing up the squads is a good idea, may as well make the most of being on TS.

    Wednesdays are our open platoon nights and they're usually quite devoid of RTRS members. I don't think it's a particularly good day for you to visit.

    The kick off is a week on Friday - not this Friday. Fear not!
