What It's Like To Be... Episode 10

What It's Like To Be...
Competition Team Member

 
 
 
Hello TG and welcome to the tenth episode of a this series. In this series, titled 'What It's Like To Be..", I will be interviewing members of TG throughout the ranks, ranging from squad member right up to the CoC. As well as interviewing CoC members, i will also be taking the chance to interview certain members in support positions. This series will be published on a monthly basis. 
 
Today I had some pleasure of interviewing the one and only @Typicalveteran-, Corps Commander but today we are focusing on his role within the Competition Team.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to this position?
 
 
Typicalveteran: Opportunity really. I saw golden opportunities to set up TG members in Apex for success by creating a self sustaining and self refilling money pool that we could use to run tournaments and keep our members happy. Our guys were begging for tournaments and had the skills to pay the bills for sure. One day i decided to take my talents to South Beach and start creating tournaments. 
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: You've been in your position of Competition Team Member since September last year. What is the main reason for staying in the position?
 
Typicalveteran: Every position you enter in TG is a minimum 6 month commitment. Everyone in TG is held accountable for that myself especially. 
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell us the best highlight while serving as a CTM?
 
Typicalveteran: If we are talking just CTM as the position than i would have to say the tournaments and also the Subsidies 4  Shenanigans event where we raised over 500 dollars!!!!
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to TG when you first joined?
 
Typicalveteran: I was playing a lot of battlefield back then. Being in the military i was always looking for a tactical approach even in game. I always preferred to play with adults who used good communication and had a solid attitude. This place was made for me from day 1.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: I imagine you are busy with been a Competition Team Member. What is it about being a CTM that you love?
 
Typicalveteran: The CTM job is great i love hearing the feedback and adjusting fire for the next go round. The best thing about it is that there is always room to improve and that drives me. 
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell me a little more about your TG history?
 
Typicalveteran: I have never officially left IN lol. I started as an SM in the Battlefield division and applied to be an SA. From there i moved to SL. When Destiny opened i applied for IN SS and when interviewed by TG Halo Hobo he had mentioned to me that he was very surprised that i did not apply for XO. I had never really thought about it. I was very happy to be SS. Long story short i did apply for XO of Destiny and i kept moving up from there. Eventually i became DO and passed Trial Phase. After that i had the opportunity to be head trainer. I really enjoyed that job as HT. After HT i applied for CC and now i just need Hobo to get out of my way for COS lol . Once i became CC i knew i was in a good position to be a CTM for Apex Legends. 
 
 

TG SmokeyB: If you could change one thing in TG, what would it be?

Typicalveteran: I think if i had to pick one thing to change it would be our member count. I would Double wait Triple wait Quadruple it!!
 
 

TG SmokeyB: Just for fun. If you where having your last meal tomorrow, what would it be?
 
Typicalveteran: I am a simple man with simple taste. Give me a mom and pop pizza with a large Coca Cola from down the street. No emotional attachment to food here lol .
 
 
 
Well there you have it folks, the man of very few words himself! Thank you Typicalveteran for taking part in this series.
 
Stayed tuned for another episode in a months time!

BF4: Operation Dragons Teeth

Operation Dragons Teeth
A Battlefield 4 Event
 
The Battlefield Division are holding an event on Battlefield 4, called Operation Dragons Teeth.
 
This operation has been created by Battlefields very own @TG The Messiah.
 
Below are some of the details about the operation:
 
Following the events of the main story, a Chinese civil war has erupted between the rebel forces of the deceased Admiral Chang, and the Chinese Government. The rebel forces have set up a base of operations in a remote province in China, and a small task force has been dispatched to sabotage their ability to continue their resistance.
 
Participation Requirements:
Battlefield 4
Dragon Pass - China Rising DLC
Dragon Valley 2015 - BF4 Legacy Operations 
 
This operation will occur in two stages, and will pit a small team of attackers against a larger team of defenders. The attacking team will be required to complete a single primary objective in each stage, with a series of optional secondary objectives which will increase the chances of the attacking team dying, but will also make things easier for them in the second stage. 
 
This operation will require interested members to individually sign up so exact numbers are known. Due to the uneven teams, members can volunteer to stay together, but they will be on the defending team. All other members will be randomly allocated to their team, and then it will be up to those teams to select their own captains. Once captains have been chosen, each captain will be given information on their primary objectives which, for secrecy reasons, have not been included in this brief. Teams can be decided among the members who have signed up if they do not wish for them to be randomly selected, and are fine with potentially not attacking or defending. If this is the case, then they must notify the organiser (TG The Messiah), or post on this announcement thread.

 
Stage 1: Dragon Pass - Conquest Large
The attacking team will be required to pass through the Dragon Pass map without being noticed. Should they be discovered, then they must fight their way through the map. The attacking team will have no access to vehicles from their spawn, and can only use ones they find on the map. The defending team will have limited access to vehicles.

If an attacking team member dies, they can be revived by a medic, if they die without a revive, then they are dead for the remainder of that map. Dead teammates will have the opportunity to return in the form as rescued captives on the second map. In order for the attacking team to count as having been discovered, they must meet one of the following criteria;
 
1. Be seen by players on the defending team
2. Engage members of the defending team, that leads to the either criteria 1, or the engagement being reported to the other
3. defending players
 
Rebel forces will not have the ability to respawn if they are killed without the official discovery of the attacking team. There will be a trust system where players who are killed instantly, cannot report the location of the attacking team. The only thing these killed players can say is (I have been killed). It will be up to the leader of the defending team to send out forces to the location of the killed defender to scout the area to find the attackers. Once the attacking team is discovered, then all players on the defending team can respawn at their home base, and they will gain access to more vehicles.
 
Primary Objective: Proceed through the Dragon Pass on your way to the final objective
Secondary Objective (optional): Locate and destroy enemy fuel shipments (prevents the enemy from gaining access to armored vehicles in the second stage)
Secondary Objective (optional): Locate and destroy enemy intelligence center (prevents the enemy from finding out the attacking teams’ final objective if they are discovered)
 

 
Stage 2 (team undiscovered): Dragon Valley - Conquest Large
With the attacking team having made it through Dragon Pass without being discovered, they proceed into the valley where the target objective is located. They will be required to pass through the map to the objective and capture it, and hold it for 2 minutes, to simulate the time it would take for the team to place explosives on critical positions. Once they have held it for 2 minutes, they have completed their main objective and have won the operation, however their secondary objective is to fall back to their start location so that they can leave the operation area and get back to safety. 
 
If there are dead teammates from the previous map, then they will have the opportunity to play again in this stage. The attacking team will have been provided information on the location on the captives in the operation area, and they must choose between reaching their objective without being discovered, or choosing to reveal themselves in order to replenish their numbers. Captives must be the same class they were in the first map.

Primary Objective: Reach and sabotage the objective
Secondary Objective (optional): Reach the extraction zone and leave the operation area
Secondary Objective (dependant): Recover any friendly units held captive by enemy forces
 
Stage 2 (team discovered): Dragon Valley - Conquest Large
Because the attacking team was discovered by enemy forces while moving through the first sector, the rebel forces have been alerted to the teams presence and have prepared defences. Due to this, they will have access to additional vehicle support to stop the attacking team (unless their fuel dump was destroyed in the first stage), and will also have access to the exact final objective as well as the extraction location (unless their intelligence centre was destroyed in the first stage). 
 
Their objectives and victory requirements have not changed, but positions of friendly captives have been moved further towards the Chinese spawn to reflect tightened security.
 
Primary Objective: Reach and sabotage the objective
Secondary Objective (optional): Reach the extraction zone and leave the operation area
Secondary Objective (dependant): Recover any friendly units held captive by enemy forces
 
Awards: This operation will have awards that directly reflect a team's performance in the operation. The standard medal will be earned by everyone participating in the comp. The medal with a bronze oak leaf will be earned by the attacking team when they complete their primary objective, the defending team will earn it when they defeat the attacking team before they’re able to complete their primary objective in the second stage. The medal with silver and gold leaves will be awarded to the attacking team for every secondary objective that is completed (2 max). The defending team will receive them for every secondary objective that they prevent the attacking team from completing.
 
There are medals to be won as well:

 
 
The start day and time for this amazing operation is Sunday 12th July @ 8PM EST.
 
There is a lot more information available on the event and to sign up, please click HERE, and it will take you directly to the correct page.
 
 
Good luck to everyone who enters this event!

Lupus and Fel have been instrumental to the success of London getting to CP status. London hit the GB ladder in mid June and played a lot of games to get them where they are at today. The squad staff’s relentless drive to get people on to play and stay driven towards their goal of CP status is inspiring. The next season is in great hands with London hitting games from the start strong.

Since late 2013, the Call of Duty Division has not been able to add a squad name to the Tactical Gaming Roll of Honor. And after almost 7 years, Call of Duty is finally ready to request its next Roll of Honor squad, Jutland (CP). TG Jutland finished 167th of 14,388 teams in the Spring season of Gamebattles CoD Crossplay Team NA ladder. During this season, which lasted from April 1st to June 30th of this year, TG Jutland finished with a record of 72-16 in matches played. Jutland (CP) began the Spring season as Crimson Shogun (ST) (later Crimson Shogun (CP)), ending that first leg of the season with a record of 139-39. This combines to a total season record of 211-55 (266 total matches) in 3 months.
 
This team has fought hard to get to where they are at this season's end. Not only have they performed in the top 10% for almost the entirety of the season, they were able to finish at the top 1.2%. This is a new age of external competition for the Call of Duty Division. The players and the staff are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to represent TG at the highest levels of competition possible given our set-up. This next Summer season, which lasts from July 1st until September 30th, should be our Division's greatest season yet. All levels of staff and players of the PS4 Brigade are incredibly proud of this team. 
 
Congratulations Jutland (CP) on an incredible season!

Early into June, CrimSho suffered a four-game losing streak.  Recognizing the need to shake things up, Crimson Shogun was deactivated and Jutland (CP) was born anew.  A quick 8 game winning streak proved the decision was the right one.  This decision took an 8-7 start and turned it into a 71-21 finish, good for the top 1.5%

TG Jutland played 92 games in June and of those 37% were played against opponents ranked in the Top 10% of the ladder.  Their record 71-21 for a rank of 218th, or Top 1.5%. This includes losses to the 9th and 17th ranked teams as well as a sweep against the 40th ranked team.  Jutland put together six win streaks of 5 or more games, including an 11 and 13 win streak.

This member has not missed a GameBattles match in 2020.  This is hundreds of games at all times of the day and night, including the 92 this month.  This award is not about reliability though, it is about performance and Dussttin is a slayer.  On numerous occasions he has come out of 1v3 situations victorious, and his communications have easily swayed games into Jutland's favor.

Xbox Series X

Xbox Series X: What We Know So Far
 
The next generation console battle begins.....
 

 
The next generation of Xbox called the Series X, sounds cool enough. But will be able to stand up to the new Play Station 5?
 
Below is some information we know about the Series X.
 
Release Date
Microsoft haven't yet given us a specific date of release. However, we know it will be released in 2020, close to the PS5 launch. Microsoft have also said the launch date will not be effected by Covid-19. It's been 7 years since the first series of the Xbox One was released, I'm sure we can wait a little bit more for the Series X.
 
Price
Basically, we don't know what the price is yet. Microsoft have not released the price bracket, you can't even pre-order the Series X yet.
 
Hardware
The Series X doesn't look the same as any other Xbox. It looks like a brick, if we're honest. However, it's not as big as you may think. After doing some research on this, if you take a Xbox One controller and lay it down on the table, the Series X is about that wide. If you stand the controller on its thumb grips and multiply that height by 3 or 4, that's the height of the console. Since the console is a square tower, it's as deep as it is wide. 
 
As far as we can tell, it has no ports on the front like the One S and X do, all the ports are on the back of the console. Also, the Series X will support the Unreal Engine 5, and it includes the Lumen and Nanite technologies for lightning and geometry. As of yet, no other specs have been released.
 

 
Controller
The new controller for the Series X will be almost identical to the Xbox One controller. It will be powered by AA batteries or a rechargeable pack, just like the old ones. The only major difference will be there is now a share button, which is located just below the power button. Making it easier to capture screen shots and game play.
 
We also know the new controller will be lighters and has new technology in so the triggers and thumb sticks will be more sensitive and quicker to respond.
 
Games
As it stands at the moment, there are only a few games confirmed for the Series X. These include Halo Infinite, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, and Cyberpunk 2077. As time goes by, Microsoft will release more game titles that are coming to the Series X.
 
Given that the Series X is backwards compatible, the console will support a Smart Delivery feature in order to make sure you're always downloading the right version of the game you want to play. 
 
As more information is released about the Xbox Series X, we will keep the TG community informed.
 
 
What do you think of the Series X?  What looks better, the Series X or PS5?

Weekly Gaming Fix

Summer is here what games have new DLC, and what game might you have missed?
Below is a list of some DLCs and games being released or that are already out!
 
 

 
 
Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Steel Wave (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) - June 16th
 
 
Operation Steel Wave came out on June 16th and adds many things to Rainbow Six Siege. Here are some of the features added:
The biggest addition is the two new addition of the operators to the Rainbow Six Team they are named Ace, and Mellusi. Ace is a Norwegian operator who is on the attacking side and is a new hard breacher being introduced to the game with his SELMA gadget.  Mellusi is a South African operator who is on the defending side and is called a trap operator with her Banshee gadget. This will also be the last season where Ubisoft will introduce two new operators in the new season. On going now they will be adding only one operator to each season where the developers of the game can focus more on game mechanics and making sure the game is more polished.
Another addition to the new Season is a rework of the map called "House".
 
 

 
The map has been in the game since it has been released and has been a personal favorite to many of the members of the Rainbow Six Siege community. Here is a road map for the rest of year 5:

Cyberpunk 2077 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) - November 19

 
 
Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed! The game made by CD PROJEKT RED was supposed to be released on September 17 of this year but has been delayed. To quote both Marcin Iwinski and Adam Badowski in a statement

 
Later stating on that such a large world to play on means that there is more to iron out and make sure that they will spend that time doing exactly that. Both Iwinski and Badowski also said:
Here is a link to their twitter if you need more updates for Night City Wire or the game itself: https://twitter.com/CyberpunkGame

What do you think of the new Rainbow Six Season? Do you think Cyberpunk will be delayed again?

The PS5

Sony has recently revealed the new PS5 along with a list of accessories that will be available to be purchased for the next gen console. The new PS5 is set to be released in 2020 during the holiday season. The prior two playstation consoles, the PS4 and the PS3, were both released on the third Friday in November hence why it is currently being speculated that the next generation console will be released on the 20th of November, the third Friday of the month. Sony will launch the new console with two different models, the default console will come with a 4K Blu-ray drive whereas the Digital Edition will have no optical drive.
 
The PlayStation 5 is over 5.5 times as powerful as the launch-model PlayStation 4, and almost 2.5 times more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro, according to Sony. The technology of the PS5 will allow the console to deliver content at resolutions as high as 8K and frame rates up to 120 frames per second, with cutting-edge graphics features like hardware-accelerated real-time ray tracing in games. 
 
As mentioned before Sony will be releasing the next gen console with many new accessories like the brand new wireless controller, the DualSense. Along with the new controllers comes a brand new charging station, the DualSense Charging Station. What makes this charging station different however is that you connect the bottom of the controllers into it to charge them however the USB-C port is located on the top of the remotes. Sony is also coming out with the Media Remote, which seems to look a lot similar to an Apple TV remote instead of a traditional Sony remote control. The last two accessories that will be coming out are a depth-sensing camera for the PS5 and the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.
 
Prices have not been announced yet however more updates will follow in the weeks to come!
