    I had a blast, and racked up a lot of certs. I thought the command structure worked well, and am all up for an armour platoon anytime of the month.

    I think one more person in the support squad with a skyguard would be a good addition. I found that we were nearly killing an awful lot of aircraft.

    Honestly: no, I didn't enjoy mostly sitting in one place shelling stuff as much as playing infantry or other vehicles. I'm going to solve this next time by asking to run either a Halberd Harasser or a Skyguard to help deal with the inevitable counter-attacks.

    It still surprises me that the TR didn't effectively counter our blob earlier, and I'd fully expect any decent VS outfit to counter it with a Lancer squad or something similarly nasty - although I've yet to find out how many Lancers it takes to counter a repair Sundy.

    I would've liked to have seen the Vanguards pushing out as squads more, then coming back for repairs. However, I think the situation we found ourselves in (under very very heavy fire) meant we couldn't push out too much.

    We did well on friday, damn effective and the dutch sunderer blob is going from strength to strength. Armour is fun, when you're fighting other tanks. But fighting infantry, it becomes fairly boring, with bullshit deaths from strikers and c4 driving people insane, and lazy farming of kills.

    There's a risk in becoming specialized. We used to run as "Fast response" during these op's, which involved sitting in a gal and waiting for a base to save. This was fun for a while but quickly became boring. Our strength lies in our casual versatility, we run good Armour platoons, we also run well as infantry, it doesn't mean we should concentrate on one or the other for every op, we should strive to both have fun and be effective on fridays.

    I hope to lead the ff after next, get some nice infantry action going!

    I have too many guns close to auraxium to spend all my time in a tank! Friday was a laugh, yea, but I found a reasonable amount of it to be monotonous. It was awesome seeing how long the sundies were holding out against that insane TR (VS? I remember lancers, but I also remember fucktonnes of mossies?) assault that Ayam included the end of in MM10. Every other week specialising armour sounds good to me though.

    Awesome cert tool link, and a request for suggestions on things to cert into or basic things I'm missing: cert viewer. This does also allow you to check other people's certs (eg. "holy crap IT, dem Reaver certs!") which is cool for platoon leaders and nosey/curious people, plus the outfit's items table is pretty cool.

    In case anyone who was on tonight wonders how the tech plant alert went: we lost all our tech plants and it ended up a fairly even VS/TR split - VS overpop on Indar and TR overpop on Amerish with the one tech plant on Esamir already held by TR, overall world pop about even. The Mekala offence/recap wasn't helped by about eight Scythes (literally) showing up from 3-4 hexes away and destroying a vital Sunderer, although it was a losing battle once the TR moved over from Heyoka.

    That said, some good fights were had so no worries in the end.

    It's Planetside 2's Birthday! Coincidentally it's both Outfits birthdays (sort of, if we discount the beta..) too! Us VS are planning a big op on Thursday and it'd be great of you guys wanted to join us! A bunch of us have NC alts too so we can reciprocate on Friday, if you'll have us ^^.

    Well I say us, I won't be able to make Friday more than likely due to real life commitments, but I'm sure the others would be able to!

    We're all part of the same community, even if different outfits on different factions, so it'd be really cool to focus on getting together and playing together this week!

    Yeah! I'd really love if you guys were to hop on for Strategic Thursday, and that would be a perfect time for me to come play with you on Friday. I have nearly 3k certs from passive gain over the last year, on my BR 1 NC toon, so will be wanting to spend it on something nice and shiny...

    I won't be joining you on Thursday, I'm afraid, for reasons. But I'll probably be on on Friday.

    I would like to thank everyone for selecting me to be the new leader of RTRS. It is an honour and I hope to serve you all well.
    On top of this I would like to thank Ayam for all of his work and the large amount of new players his videos have brought us.
    I hope that I can help the outfit grow and develop as the leaders before me have. Wish me luck!

    You jest, but that was included in the voting decision.

    It was more an issue of who was wanted on the night. In other news, I believe theres a few officer positions open!

    The baton of token Irish has now been passed. A new era has entered the lands of RTRS. Flags adorned with blue and yellow four leaf clovers are flown as songs are sung of freedom and leprechauns.

    May your Guinnessy flame burn brightly and freely!

    (did I miss any stereotypes there?)

    Ultramarine themed ranks eh?
    Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
    Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
    Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
    Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!
