What It's Like To Be...
Squad Assistant for an CP squad
Hello TG and welcome to the twelfth episode of 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 CoS. 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 am interviewing a fellow Call of Duty player, Dussttin, who is Squad Assistant of Jutland, PS4's successful Competitive Squad.
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to this position?
Dussttin: I enjoy playing Call of Duty competitively and thought this was the way I could best represent Tactical Gaming. It’s also given me the chance to play with other talented players, where we can all combine our tactics to improve together.
TG SmokeyB: You've been in your position of Squad Assistant since March this year. What is the main reason for staying in the position?
Dussttin: The main reason is that it’s been really fulfilling getting the opportunity to rebuild the competitive squad, which had fallen off a bit recently. Looking at how far we’ve come over the last couple months is a little surreal and a testament to the work put in by the entire team.
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell us the best highlight while serving as a SA?
Dussttin: Definitely consistently sitting inside the top-50 and 1% of teams on Gamebattles. We’ve also accumulated over 100 wins in July and that’s just going to continue as we make a playoff push. As a squad, we’ve overcome a lot of adversity and stuck with it despite things getting tough at times. It makes it all feel worth it, especially getting to do it with my brother @Koda_Nole.
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to TG when you first joined?
Dussttin: The closeness of the community and how personable everyone is is very enticing. To me, it’s the people that make Tactical Gaming. We all enjoy playing video games, but it’s hard to find people you enjoy playing with. I’ve found that here and hope that continues for a long time. Shout out to Amp and Mitchell for supporting us from the beginning.
TG SmokeyB: I imagine you are busy with been a Squad Assistant of a CP Squad. What is it about being a SA that you love?
Dussttin: Outside of playing, just the conversations with the guys during and in between matches. We have some pretty hilarious stuff that goes on and usually have good chemistry. It’s great when your teammates can be actual friends as well. Thanks to all the guys for the attitudes they bring daily; @iz_Slick, @Koda_Nole, @Tippyy-_- & @AyeOli.
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell me a little more about your TG history?
Dussttin: I joined Tactical Gaming last spring during Blacks Op 4. Shortly into my tenure, I knew I wanted to be on the best squad and worked to build that. As we went into Modern Warfare, I kept that mentality as a squad leader and squad assistant. I’m proud of what we’ve done but there’s more coming.
TG SmokeyB: If you could change one thing in TG, what would it be?
Dussttin: At least in the Call of Duty Division, there’s not much I would change. The entire regiment has done a fantastic job of recruiting. When I first joined, there were five or six squads with not many members, now there are 14 squads and two competitive squads. Like I said before, it’s the people here that are the drawing factor to TG. As long as that continues, this will be an attractive community for many to call home.
TG SmokeyB: Just for fun. If you where having your last meal tomorrow, what would it be?
Dussttin: Hmmm tough, but a good t-bone steak with some grilled shrimp and bread rolls would be tough to beat.
Your squad has done some great things recently and have been, rightly so, been awarded for it. Well done to you all!
Many thanks @Dussttin for taking part in this interview!
Stay tuned for the LAST article next month! We are coming close to the end of this series, but a new series is coming.
