    Okay, to get numbers up, I'm going to state the bleeding obvious. No crazy schemes like the A-Team converting a tractor to fire cabbages (anyone remember that episode?), just a plain strategy:

    1) asking buddies to join - whether on Steam or real life - I got a rl buddy and a steam buddy to join us on ...Saturday, I think it was, they actually really enjoyed the mountaineering bit, totally unexpected to them

    2) creating a recruitment video - everyone's a sucker for a cool piece that shows how brooding and dangerous outfits can be. Unfortunately I tend to create silly vids, so will need some direction on how to actually look cool - I'm figuring a Sedate Saturday activity

    3) hitting up recruitment subforums on ps2 websites (AND including said cool video in those threads' opening posts otherwise we won't stand out) - I'd argue relying on the RPS and herosquad mumble community alone aren't going to hack it because we're not the official dudes

    Okay, again, that's enough typing for me for one night, again, will come back to this tomorrow.

    Oh yeah, one more thing: 4) Promote the Steam group and wrestle aadmin facilities from that traitor to the traitors: Stranglove! Geddim!

    Due to Xmas, families, travelling, so forth, I'm probably not going to be around much till the new year, but I will definitely be back. The RPS NC outfit is an extremely pleasant, friendly, helpful bunch to play with. Anyone considering joining the fight for FREEDOM should not be remotely timid about hopping on Mumble and joining in.

    Hope this Friday is a success, with plenty more mountaineering shenanigans

    You might want start another thread about ideas or suggestions for such a thing. I might have some ideas, but I need to look around if they have not been stolen yet :P

    I think this is an important question. After playing on Monday I realised I'm burning myself out a bit on PS2 already, so I'll be mainly sticking to the weekends. If we can get a significant regular contingent on weekdays (it's very small scale fun usually), that would be great, but I'm happiest with us gathering on weekends.

    Purple techno laser cultists are the best, but I believe we can now make NC alts. I might give this Freedom Friday business a go, if you guys don't mind a temporary defector from Vanu?

    I would like to go back to some slightly more personal team play in NC (currently if I play with people, I'm in the Vanu outfit, which is nice, but I never really feel like I'm starting to know better anyone), but Friday is really possibly the worst day for me. Also, I'm not too splendid with keeping a fixed day free for gaming, so, yeh, that might be a bit of a problem :/

    Hi there,
    I'd love to join the NC outfit (i'm already in the VS one) because blue is better, the music is better. the first sniper rifle is a bolt action one, also i'd rather shoot with a gun than a purple plasma supersoaker.... But the freedom friday is a problem for me. I'd rather spend my friday and saturday nights in a bar or a venue than on my computer. Could i join you for other days? Other than the thursday which is strategic giraffe's day and the occasional wednesday which is approximative giraffe's day.

    We tend to have a squad worth of dudes running around on weekdays, majority of us play on weekends though.

    Yeh, Sunday is also one of the most reasonable day to be free for it, so maybe next time I join.
    There is though, also the problem that at the same time, you have a full platoon of VS people on mumble, which is also kinda nice ,and happens so rarely.

    Still, hardly particularly organised ,so, maybe on my next free Sunday I shall attempt to join you smurfs (also, music is really awfulhorrible for them, but they look by far best).

    (also, yay for SCE for having fixed all them bugs ,and allowed multiple characters on different factgions, on same server!)

    Hi,

    Just a quick sanity check, is Miller the server to set up on if I want to join in the NC fun? Unfortunately I hadn't heard about this when I started playing PS2 recently so my best NC character is on Lithcorp but now I (sort of) know what I'm doing I can set up a new one elsewhere. And if there's ever a Freedom Friday organised on Lithcorp I'd be happy to participate.

    Yep, it's miller

    Gotta say, the Traitor outfit is the best one I've played in both on PS1 and (though its only been a short while) PS2. There is the odd occasions that platoon size numbers are on, but I've found that there's always a good squad up in the evenings during the week. Last night for instance was a blast with some great teamwork and top notch leadership from JeffJeff. I've done more sneaky disruption tactics with the Traitors, than anyone, and THATS hella fun

    i agree with you there E1mo last night was the first week night i had (not counting friday :P) played and even though there was only like 7 of us it was brilliant fun especially our final assault and capture, we held the nicely. i will definitely be on more on the weekdays and weekends to join in. JeffJeff did lead well but i do think he should stay away from reavers for a while :P

    you guys seem very paranoid with your permissions - in the Vanu Laser Cult, we're pretty much all members with invitation rights; in the so called Freedom faction, you restrict everyone to peons who cannot invite.

    Funny how it works in world of religious and political fanaticism.
    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!
