    The Pep Squad Thread

    I hope this isn't horribly presumptuous of me, being new here and all, but I just wanted to start a little Pep Squad for those RPS members who will be marching off to the clash games, next week.
    Personally, I think it's kinda cool and exciting. (Hey, I'm old, life is dull.)

    On the other hand, though, I'm sure that organizing and practicing can get old.. and then there's all the little head games that go along with such undertakings.
    Well, it can start wearing a good soldier down...
    And Wednesday will be here before we know it.

    This is where The Pep Squad comes in.
    This is how the rest of us can get into the fight.
    I am posting this 'card' and inviting any RPS forum member to 'sign' it by leaving an encouraging word or picture in the comments below.
    Show your support for our fighting giraffes & traitors!!!!

    I have a design in mind, but I'll need to know who the squad members are. Is that public knowledge?

    There are squad allocations for the first match but that is by no means all of our CCEU squad.

    Good luck team! In the words of Field Marshall Suvorov: 'Train hard, fight easy' - those hours on the PTS will pay off, all you must do is relax and focus your inner giraffe...
    Also, I'm guessing we'll have ourselves a nice little popcorn and beer mumble channel for Wednesday for anyone that wants to watch the match in a sort of virtualised pub.

    Any chan ce of getting some front-page cover for this event, by the way? Not saying we want it necessarily, but it would be fun to get to represent the community for real.

    How about this:
    Hi Jim,

    We in the Planetside 2 community thought you might be interested to know that we are putting forward a team to compete in the Community Clash and that their first match is taking place on Wednesday at 20.00 GMT. The event will be streamed live and the Community Clash presenters actually have a pretty good reputation for providing intelligent commentary and explaining what's going on. Also, we're planning to have a bit of a get together on the RPS community mumble for anyone watching the game to hang out and cheer our team on. So with all this in mind we thought you might want to provide a link from the front page in case there are more people in the RPS community who want to watch, cheer or just find out more about what our Planetside 2 community gets up to outside of calls to arms.

    For more info if you're interested:

    <link to CC rules and schedule>
    <link to twitch for where they stream the match>

    Cheers

    [Wally] on behalf of the RPS PS2 team
    We could just send that (or similar, edit away!) as a PM on the forum. And/or email it to his RPS email address.

    Sounds really good! Twitter is another option. Mr Rossignol is reasonably active there. Or tweet it at @RockPaperShot.

    Do it!

    Right, that's sent. But only via email since Jim's forum inbox is full(!). I'm not on twitter so if anyone who is wants to publicise that way too then go for it.

    I'd already mailed Jim (and got a response) about a week ago, but your mail is both much better and a useful reminder.

    But, I thought you were representing the community for real, it was just that the community wasn't aware of it, since it hadn't made it to the front page?

    True, true. I mostly meant to say it would feel more official if it were, you know, official.

    Go go team RPS! If I had a giraffe mascot outfit I would be dancing the funky chicken and doing backflips right now.

    Yeah! That's the spirit, Rizlar!

    So anyway, looks like I'll be working tomorrow/today and will miss the match. And though, I imagine, there will be reruns and highlights of it all... well, it just won't be the same as seeing it live.
    Won't be able to cheer you along.
    Still, to show the faith I do have in you all, I've placed a $300.00 bet, with The Boys in Vegas, on RPS to take the match.
    I won't mention what the odds are..

    But then, that's not your concern.
    The most important thing, for you lot, is to just go out there and have fun.
    After all, it's just a game.
    On which I've bet $300.00.
    For RPS to win.



    GOOD LUCK KIDS!
