    Ultimately if it's two separate outfits that we field then they should be filled with the primary members of that outfit.

    Had time to process this in my dumb mind again and I now realise I probably do need an extra obs cam to do this since it will be a new account right? Anyone got contact details for the organiser or able to ask them on my behalf?

    Can you remove from a list as it turns out I'm going on holiday on the 2nd not the 4th as I got the dates mixed up. Not that I probably would have gotten a place.

    On that note may I add that this is a server thing not an outfit thing so time in outfit may not be the best metric to use but rather time on server or even BR to allow those who have spent the most time on Miller to help decide its name. Also it ignores the more active members of the outfit community who may have joined the outfit later on.

    Just my thoughts on it from a (suddenly) unaffected perspective. Anyway good luck in it, make sure Willermans called Miller

    I'm quite nitpicky in forum discussions so be warned

    Either go direct to SOE and ask for a Jaeger obs cam account or try Dotzor or another member of the admin team:http://ps2-pickup.enjin.com/forum/m/...updated/page/1

    No need to discuss worthiness, legitimacy or identity. The answers are obvious and there is really no point in us going over them again.

    @RTRS guys: Try and get 12 of your regulars (i.e players who almost exclusively play as RTRS) or however many you put down as being able to field.

    If for whatever reason you are unable to, then i have a simple suggestion.

    Using the in-game outfit members screen, someone sorts the remaining players on our list of applicants above^ by 'most time played' (under the RTRS banner). This is a good indicator of who has invested more of their time in playing with you guys and representing your outfit, whilst also remaining fair and similar in moral to the 'member since' selection criteria already used. This is almost irrefutable proof to use against anyone who might whine about stuff like "you're the same outfit" or "you're just using a loophole to get more of your guys in the mergersmash".

    Sound good Bastiat?

    This sounds like the best way to pick people in my opinion, is this also what you are suggesting as the 'obvious' way to select giraffes? It doesn't look like it will effect me at all but for sake of clarity for those who might be are we able to get a final verdict? Perhaps from the council?

    No, just in that specific context. However, If you or anyone else feel that it should be a factor in Giraffe selection, go for it. I can personally see the benefits in considering both fields.

    We wont know anything until Thursday evening onwards. Keep an eye out for updates to this thread from Cooper or Bastiat.

    As soon as the "best outfits" described themselves as such and immediately created a gulf in attitudes in the meeting, the whinging and whining - post-selection - was inevitable.

    Sorry been trying to make some sense of the reddit thread, and not sure if the decision has been finalised or not or are we still waiting on a decision tomorrow ? and atm it seems more likely that RPS would get to field some numbers if anything ?

    It's best to wait until tomorrow. I'm not sure there's any sense to be made out of the reddit thread.

    This guy is HILARIOUS. I suspect he is also 'DisgruntledPlyr' as well.

    Looks like the final numbers will be decided tomorrow, but judging by what has been said it looks like RPS will get two squads, or perhaps just one if it is decided to let more outfits participate. Or if Woodsman are super lame and cannot bring at least 240 people we might get 0 squads.

    Erm, I might have called someone a bellend in that thread. Sorry. I did do that thing where you say your views aren't the same as the company line though, so there's that. In my defence, he was a bellend and at least I didn't do this;

    there's a lot of angry comments on that reddit link. is it worth pointing out to people that if something is truly random then things will group together? you can prove this by flipping a coin and you will get a huge number of heads or tails in a row at some point, it isnt always 50 50 (i have actually done this in a maths lesson its true and somewhat boring actually)

    Sadly, it will not. Reddit is immune to logic and reason.
