The Forsaken Countdown Is On

The myriad of changes to the Destiny experience have begun! This past Tuesday a 35GB download was required to prepare players for the forthcoming Forsaken launch which drops On September 8th. Along with a new campaign mission, this time in the Reef, home of the Awoken, an area little explored in the Destiny universe, Forsaken will add new weapons and weapon types, ‘supers’, more customisation options and a tracking system, which will allow players to track what they need to do to acquire various titles and armour/weapon sets. But what has really gotten the Destiny community talking is the story behind the Forsaken expansion. The death of Cayde-6 and the quest for vengeance.
Another of the larger elements of the changing face of Destiny is the addition of a new mode, a hybrid of PvE and PvP entitled Gambit. This mode pits two opposing player teams against each other in a race to acquire motes by eliminating AI enemies and banking them. Teams will also be able to shut down their opponents bank and launch a single player attack on the opposition team via a portal under correct circumstances. This new game dynamic should lead to some interesting game play (and sounds like a lot of fun)!
There are a variety of methods to purchase the Destiny Forsaken Expansion; At present there is a COMPLETE edition available containing the base game, the earlier season expansions, Curse of Osiris and Warmind, the Annual Pass for Forsaken (which includes the soon to be released Forsaken package and the next two planned DLC content drops, Aces Wild and Penumbra) or the LEGENDARY edition, containing all the aforementioned material, minus the yet to be released future expansions post Forsaken. There will also be an Annual Pass sold separately for those not wishing to purchase the base game and/or previously released content, and a package containing Forsaken only, with the future content not included.

As with all Destiny expansions, a new Raid will feature. With the launch of Warmind, TG’s Destiny Division attempted to become the first community to complete Spire of Stars. To their great credit and much heralding, they were the fifth team to do so. With the launch of Forsaken, TG’s Destiny alumni set their sights on being the first group to best the new Raid. TW SARGE, Destiny’s PS4 Brigade Commander had this to say about the Destiny Division’s attempt to be world’s first when Forsaken’s Raid arrives;
" I'm very excited about the reveal of the new expansion coming, and this new Raid coming out seems like it's going to be more challenging than the last. Worlds first may take on new meanings for this Raid, but one thing is for certain: Destiny Division will represent Tactical Gaming honorably again in whichever avenue we choose to take as we tackle the new raid on launch day. I also heard that the Xbox Brigade challenged the PS4 Brigade on getting the first completion, so that is something that both Brigades are going to be working toward as well. I anxiously await the release and am eager to go for that worlds first title again".
When asked about preparing for an entirely new Raid and the mechanics involved, SARGE states;
" Those of us who are keen on the Raids have been doing little things and having talks about beating the existing raids in interesting new ways to challenge ourselves and push our problem solving and enemy clearing skills to whole new levels. Speed run challenges, one-phasing boss kills, weapon specific boss kills, etc. These are some of the things that are keeping us on our toes and I'd like to say that the Destiny Division has some of the most efficient raiders".
Those that have PS4 with PS Plus membership, can get the Destiny Base game for free during September.

Thank you for your TG service! - TG CallaNinja

In this installment of the 'Thank you for your TG service' series, I have interviewed Lieutenant Colonel TG CallaNinja.  He serves the Call of Duty division, and is the brigade commander for the XB1 Brigade.
 
TGxLadicius: What initially brought you to TG and into which division?
TG CallaNinja: It was an article on xbox.com that first introduced me to Tactical Gaming (Tacical Warfare at the time). I read an interview that was done by a former member that was known as TW QuantemDalek. From there I signed up to join and the rest is history.
 
TGxLadicius: What has been one of the hardest issues you've had to deal within TG? How did you resolve it?
TG CallaNinja: The hardest issue, by far, that I've had to deal with was when we dealt with a lot of long-standing and tenured members (which affected multiple divisions, especially Call of Duty) leaving TG to make their own clan. Initially, it was such a shock to see so many members leave all at one like they did, but at the same time, it provided others with an opportunity to step up and show their leadership qualities in a time of conflict. Thankfully, I was allowed to take that opportunity to work to excel within the division and help others advance as well, whether that was within CoD or outside the division.
 
TGxLadicius: Tell us a time where our Tactical Gaming Mediation Program (TGMP) served to be a great tool?
TG CallaNinja: Though I haven't had to directly use the program to deal with issues within the division. I know that the mediation program is a GREAT tool to use to hash out issues within, no mater how small. I know that a few battalion staff members have used this to work out and it's nothing but help strengthen relations within squads and divisions.
 
TGxLadicius: Tell us of a time in TG that has stood out to you.
TG CallaNinja: Getting involved with the competitive aspects of gaming. Anybody within the division, past or present, can tell you that I'm not the best player when it comes to Call of Duty. But when we had opportunities to be involved with a group known as the Sea Snipers and participate within what was known as the S.E.A.L. League, which had multiple other clans involved with it. Our teams mainly consisted of our competitive squad (CP) squad members, as well as other members within the structured squads (ST) and wanted to be involved. We had history with the S.E.A.L. League for years, as Tactical Warfare won multiple league seasons when it existed and to be involved with the competitive squads and being a part of teams the won the league was a huge honor for me. 
 
TGxLadicius: For members considering becoming a member of the CoC, what could you offer as advice?
TG CallaNinja: Being a part of the CoC isn't just about who plays the best, but about having the right attitude to lead. Yeas, there is work involved to be a CoC member, but the rewards greatly outweigh the risks. Thankfully I had great guidance when I was recommended to be squad staff and I haven't looked back. So, if you're considering it, don't be discouraged about thinking it won't be something that you can't handle. Take advantage of the opportunity and make the experience your own!
 
Thank you for your TG service @TG CallaNinja

Dual TW/TA Registration Is Open!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock recently, you’ll have noticed some major changes to the website, both in form and function. But what may have escaped you is the ability to be a part of both Tactical Warfare and Tactical Adventures!
Up until now, TG members that have been a part of TA transferred across into the Legions that were available. League of Legends was transferred into 1st Army whilst Sea of Thieves and Elite Dangerous Legions opened their doors to incoming transfers from Tactical Warfare. But for the moment at least, members can register in both TA and TW, until such a time as when TA grows to the point where it can sustain itself with active members. At that point, well, you’ll just have to make a decision whether you want to be a part of TA or TW.
But until then, you can if you wish play a part in both. There’s also two new Legions to choose from that opened just prior to the website relaunch, World of Warcraft and Grand Theft Auto.
If you wish to take up dual registration, first check that the Legion or Division you wish to join practices on alternate days to your current one, then contact your immediate CoC. A request will be placed on your behalf and will find its way up the Chain of Command, at which point you’ll be registered for both (provided all goes accordingly). TA is of course still a burgeoning, new project and needs willing and motivated members to help it bloom. If that’s you, I’m sure all within TG wish you the best of luck!
To keep up to date with the discussions related to Tactical Adventures, you can join a Discord for the entire branch using this LINK
Or on the website you can view the TA forums starting from this POINT and clicking into the Legion(s) that peaks your interest.

How sweet is our new Headquarters!!?? 
 
I wanted to take a moment to give thanks. It’s important  to recognizes people  who have consistently and continuously displayed all of  TG’s values and mission in all aspects of the community ever since they join TG. These people have been here for all the highs and lows. And during all these years, they have dealt with the biggest challenge of them all… Dealing with me… And they’re still here?? They must really like the coffee… 
 
Since 2004, I’ve rarely presented the following award. Why? Well… I don't impress easily… Well let me tell you, I'm impressed… So here we go.

I'm not done yet!!
 
The following person has been PIVOTAL in taking TG to the next level. We have been extremely lucky to have crossed path.  How? Well I was searching for a possible solution to better integrate Discord with our site and I thought I had found something. After posting questions to the developer of the solution, out of nowhere this guy comes out and start offering advice and  possible solutions! At first, I was a bit wary  but as TGEC members and I got to know him, it was obvious that we had found the person who was going to help us raise our phoenix from the hashes 🔥🐓 😂.
 
After some extreme negotiations  , we where able to create a partnership to finally integrate our Administrative Tracking System (ATS) with the latest and greatest IT. Well, since the work has started, our expectations were completely blown out of the sky.  Not only  as he integrated the ATS, he has improve ALL aspects of TG’s Headquarters. 
 
So there was no way we were going to let this guy go. So after more extreme negotiations , we now have a new in house Web Team Coding Team Leader.  In recognition and for the first time
