As indicated on the history page, In September 2008 we experienced a major restructure that allowed us to better meet our member’s needs. By re-branding ourselves to TacticalGaming.net (TG), we were able to support multiple franchises of different genres which include the established TW franchise (TW) and the creation of Tactical Sports (TS) for sports based games. Unfortunately, the “team vs team” modes in sports based games did not explode in popularity like we had hoped and as such, TS was shut down in 2018.
Over the years, TW’s structure and other requirements closed the door to great games that TG could have supported. From the 2018 ashes of TS, we created Tactical Adventures (TA) that allowed TG to accept a LARGE variety of games that simply did not fit TW. Games such as turn-based and other based strategy, role-playing, non shooter Massively Multiplayer (MMO), Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games and more. Even with the best efforts possible, TA did not grow as needed to justify all the work that’s involved.
TG’s Commitment to Non Military Style Shooters
But let’s be clear that our commitment to turn-based and other based strategy, role-playing, non shooter Massively Multiplayer (MMO), Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games and more has not changed. They will simply be part of the same TG structure while keeping the same flexibility as they had before.
So if you want TG to support a new game, you need to have a full Squad (in game squad size) worth of people that are willing to transfer, request the game to be added to Vanguard Division. Get the full details!
So basically, TW and TA are now unified as TG. We will keep using the military structure (Corps, Divisions, Brigades, Battalions and squads) and ranks.
Because TA awards (medals, badges and coins) had an equivalent in TW, TG will keep using the TW awards. Any TA awards given to members has/will be converted to the equivalent TG award.
- update our website to the latest version
- Make all the coding changes to merge TW and TA
- Various scripts to transfer TA Awards as TG awards
- Mass transfers remaining TA Vanguard Division members to TG Vanguard Division
- Make all the graphic changes to merge TW and TA
- More to come... 😬 😂
Which is why I'm happy to announce the following award.
The changes to the site are not completed but you now get a sense of the direction we've taken.
Discord will Sync with our Site
Unless you're Battalion Staff or above, you don't realize the amount of work it is to keep your Discord accounts updated with the correct roles and titles.
We’re in the process of hiring a contractor to link your Discord account to your TG site account which will automatically assign you to the correct roles on Discord. This will massively reduce the amount of work your CoC has to do. 👍

TG’s Regulation Regarding Allegiance
It's important for all of you to understand the significance of the following modification. Since I founded TG 17 years ago, we've basically never touch TG's regulations as they're basically our bible by which TG relies on.
We’ve recently added flexibility to our Allegiance regulation where members are now allowed to be part of other communities as long as it doesn't conflict with :
- Division’s gaming schedule
- any league/ladder/tournament rules
Unfortunately, your CoC don't necessarily have all the answers yet but do contact your direct CoC with any questions or concerns. We're are currently compiling them and they will be brought up the chain which will allow us to respond.
The video game industry is constantly changing and evolving which in turn is bringing our gaming experience to a whole new level. TG is always looking forward and adapting itself to these changes so that we can provide our members an elite gaming experience. We are dedicated to continue and improve the services we offer to our members now, and in the future.
