TG Fitness Challenges

Tactical Gaming is happy to offer a fitness discord channel in our TG Public Discord along with some fitness challenges on our TG site thanks to a few of our members! In TG, our primary focus is gaming and having fun; however, it is important for us to also take care of our bodies and minds. Taking time out of one’s day to focus on fitness can help with both!
 
Especially at the beginning of the year, many people make resolutions to lose weight, get in better shape, be healthier, eat more vegetables, be more physically active, etc. Doing these healthier activities on your own can often feel daunting and impossible, but when you join a challenge group it is usually a little easier and more fun. People can help motivate you, provide you with tips and tricks, hold you accountable and so much more. This is what some of the members of TG are hoping to bring to the community!
 
@krojakhas started the first of many weekly challenges. The first challenge is for pushups... I do not know about you, but personally I do not like doing them! This challenge has 3 different tiers and based on where you would rate yourself physically is which tier you should aim for. For the pushups challenge the tiers are Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. By the end of the week the goal is to be doing at least 4 pushups in a row (Beginner Tier) and up to 15 pushups in a row, take a rest, and then doing 15 more (Advanced Tier). I don’t know about you guys, but my personal goal is to be somewhere between those two levels by the end of the week! Krojak said, “These challenges are to get people moving and into fitness and wellness, build strength and muscle, burn fat, and accomplish something that you didn't think you could do.” Krojak’s challenges are meant to be added on to one another. We are starting with pushups, but in the future we can expect to add squats, burpees, planks, and more to the current pushups challenge.
 
@Eiwitgod has also started a weekly challenge for us which focuses on the abs! There is a list of YouTube videos that will show you different exercises that will help you develop your abs. Looking at the people in the thumbnails for these videos, may seem intimidating, but remember the important thing is to TRY! The first time you may not be able to keep up with the trainer. You may only be able to do 5-10% of what they are doing, but that’s okay! Do what you can, and don’t give up! Eiwitgod stated, “Abs are trained during a workout and made in the kitchen!”. It is important to not just do the ab workouts, but also ensure that you are having a calorie deficient.
 
There is much more to come for those interested in fitness! We can expect some videos from Krojak and hopefully others, full workouts, weight training (with free weights/body weight), nutrition information, personal success stories, and wellness.
 
I believe TG Krojak said it best when he stated, “With the great community of like-minded gamers in TG, the more that get into fitness and wellness to improve their health and lifestyle - the longer they will live and without major health problems. That will enable us to keep playing with like-minded gamers for years.”
 
Special thanks to @TG-AMP for suggesting this as a Discord channel. His vision for the channel was to create a place "For all physical activities, running, swimming, jumping, picking heavy stuff up, competitions and recent successes, share your passion here and find like-minded fitness junkies".
 
Personally, I am looking forward to these challenges, to the sweat, and even the tears! Who is with us?

Mass Effect Legendary

BioWare my old friend you have done it again!
 
Now, this flew slightly under the radar back in November when it was announced, but BioWare has cheekily been working on a new project... well an old project, but still. I am aware there are several fans out there of BioWare's journey into the stars which was the Mass Effect Franchise spanning a trilogy of games, and then its stand alone game based in the universe that was Andromeda.
 

 
You may also remember a group of games called Dragons Age. If you have played either of these collections you will know that BioWare has a habit of not just creating a story, or a simple cinematic experience to follow through. But also a saga of lore, backstory, and possibilities. (No-one mention Anthem here please.) Now, I like to re-watch films and replay games, and Mass Effect Legendary has given us that chance with an up-to-date skin and flesh hacked out by their teams of developers.
 
Legendary is not just a remastered version of the original trilogy, but a masterwork version optimized for 4K ultra display and the newest generation of consoles. The original story included within it as well as promotional weapons and armor types. Now, this part of the article is difficult due to a lack of information available, and the premise that the game shall be the same as the originals in most of it's aspects. Also it is hard to write without revealing any spoilers, so I will have to move on a little bit.
 
The original game took us through an epic adventure that explored planets, introduced us to new races, and through the codex it gave us a rich and full background into the ever evolving world around you. Choosing your destination, your ground team, your loadout, and a flurry of abilities to learn and develop you move through the galaxy to investigate the dangerous threat that the black of space have in store for you while protecting the ones you meet, the ones you may fall in love with, and the fate of every organic life in the galaxy.
 

 
Now, with our limited knowledge we can also confirm that a new Mass Effect game all together is on the distant horizon as well as a new Dragons Age game, but they are expected sometime around 2023.
 
Watch the following trailer and get ready to see the universe through the eyes of Shepard, once again when the legendary edition drops sometime this Spring.

Their accomplishments will be added to the TG Roll of Honor.

Overwatch Division - January Newsletter

The Overwatch 2 release date still remains uncertain. Many hoped it would be released in February during or right after Blizzconline; however, this seems unrealistic. We are hopeful to at least learn more about it during Blizzconline which is scheduled for February 19th and 20th. There are several contests that you are able to enter (deadlines are quickly approaching) along with more information on the free event here! At this time, there hasn't been any talks about any additional maps or heroes for Overwatch. There will still be minor tweaks like always, but it doesn't look like there will be any major changes to the original game. Overwatch did release their winter event, Winter Wonderland 2020! Be sure to play and gather those lootboxes while you can. This event is scheduled to close on January 5th!
 

 
 Check out December’s MAR for all of the promotions in rank and positions! Congratulations to all of you!
 
Demon Squad (CP) is currently 3-1 in their CGL Tournament. There are 5 games left in the current season! Let's go Demon Squad!!!
 

 
The following members have reached these milestones as Squad Staff:
 
3 years: Beattlemania

6 months: KäptnKadaver, AzraelNeedsHeals, and Cobalion-GX
 
Congratulations! Keep up the great work in your squads!
 

 
BeattleMania has been the Squad Leader (SL) of Explorer Squad (XB1 1st bat) for 3 years! He has been a dedicated leader to not only his squad, but to the entire XB1 OW Division. He is always willing to help out in anyway that he can. Beattle has been SL in addition to having a full time job and a 3 year old who gets into everything! No matter how crazy his real life gets he continues to find time for his squad! 
I, TG HSquared, sat down with him recently and asked him a few questions about his experience here.
 
Squared: "What made you decide to step up to Squad Staff?"
Beattle: "When our previous SL, TG Dungeoneer, had to step down, he approached me. Even though I was a fairly new member of the squad, and told me he thought I'd make a good leader. So his recommendation and belief in me gave me the confidence to pursue it, and I haven't looked back."
Squared: "I'm so thankful he recommended you, and that you decided to give it a shot! You have been an amazing addition to the SS family!
 
Squared: "What has been the biggest challenge as Squad Leader of Explorer?"
Beattle: "There hasn't really been any challenges for me; thanks to my great squad, and other squad staff who immediately hop up to help with anything that I need."
Squared: "It is great to see how well you guys really do work together!"
 
Squared: "What has been the most fun part of being SL?"
Beattle: "The most fun part of being SL for me is getting to foster the skill and talents of the people in my squad. I've seen a lot of members come in as quiet and shy, then in a few short weeks have nearly as much confidence as me! It's times like that when I feel like I'm doing my job as SL to foster their full potential."
Squared: "I remember when you first joined, you were a little on the quieter side, but you quickly broke out of that shell! Now "quiet" and "shy" are not words I'd use to describe ya!
 
Squared: "Most of your members have been in Explorer for quite some time. How do you get them to stay? Are you paying them??"
Beattle:  "Well, since I myself am not getting paid, they don't either. But here in Explorer we strive for a fun, family environment, and I do what I can to insure that there's no burnout. I try not to take things too seriously, and I think that's really helped bond us together. "
Squared: "You guys definitely have a very fun, family vibe in Explorer! I always have a ball when I join you guys, until you get too many people, and I have to sit out!"
 
Squared: "What is something that you hope to see more of in the Overwatch Division?"
Beattle: "I'd like to see more interaction amongst the division. Even if it is just chatting on Discord. I feel like  I don't know everyone because we all keep to our little bubbles."
Squared: "I do think this is a great idea! I enjoy seeing people interact with one another and not letting the platform barrier divide us!"
 
Squared: "Any advice that you'd like to give to fellow SS?"
Beattle: "If I have one piece of advice, it's don't be afraid to ask for help with anything, whether it be from your squad or other SS. You'd be amazed how much easier it is to do this if you have the input from everyone around you."
Squared: "I 100% agree with this!"
 
Squared: "Is there anything else that you'd like to add?"
Beattle: "The only thing I'd like to add is, a thank you to everyone here for all the good times I've had here, and I'm looking forward to even more going forward!"
Squared: "Thanks again Beattle for all of your hard work and support over the last three years! Looking forward to the future with you!"

We Accomplished a lot in 2020!

2020.... What a year! 
 
 
One year ends to allow another to start.  I will highlight some of the biggest events that TG managed to run over the last 12 months.   

We started quiet bringing in the new year, we took time to congratulate those who participated in the Make-A-Wish Charity Stream  as well as @Typicalveteran-'s ugly Christmas Jumper Contest in aid of ToWriteloveOnHerArms
 
In March, as we all know it... lockdown hit and Covid-19 happened. We were trapped in our homes and couldn't go anywhere so we were left with no choice but to binge every Netflix show and play games all day but some...our everyday heroes. We learned to appreciate those providing essential services and as such we extended a small token of our thanks HERE

Apex ran a Tournament called #Subsides4shennanigans  to raise funds for future Apex Tournaments... This was a very big event and we raised over $500 while watching various members of CoC take pies to the face, Ice bucket challenges, grow mustaches and much more!

At the beginning of April, we ran a Charity Stream for the Fred Hutch Research Foundation which was focusing on finding a cure / vaccine for the Virus. Throughout the day we raised just under $200 for the cause. 

Also in April, TWC and CoD Division ran a TG wide event - TWC Presents: Warzone Tournament, This ran for a few weeks during the month of April in which multiple teams competed in some big $$$ prizes in Warzone.
 
In May we had a charity stream for Armed Forces Bikers , a day long streaming event in aid of the UK Veterans Charity who assist veterans or injured service members transition back into civil life. 

Destiny Division ran "The Guardian Games"  from the end of April till early May, where members teamed up together to win as many Laurels as they could for some awesome prizes. 
 
Throughout the year we opened up a few divisions and legions:
Valorant Division Escape From Tarkov Division Minecraft Dungeons Legion Marvel Avengers Legion Star Wars Squadrons Division  
On May 24th Overwatch celebrated its 4th year in TG by running an event for all its members to celebrate. Each member earned points based on certain game modes / actions they did in  game of for their division. 
 
We had 2 big podcasts come out this year , the first was hosted and co hosted by @TG RoyalRenKu & @RareCosmicPepe  with guests  @HartAttackKidd and @MrTurdTastic  you can view it HERE
and then another one with RoyalRenku, RareCosmicPepe and the CC Typical Veteran - Link HERE - Worth listening to both! 
 
@Senile Sarge and @TG SirMadness started a short TG News Hour Series where we discussed a bunch of gaming and TG topics.  you can watch some of the videos on the TG Youtube Channel  -  Season 2 is on its way!!

Call of Duty has had 3 Competitive Squads constantly competing throughout the year and they have made TG Proud  - TG Jutland and TG Warewulf and TG Sabre Squad

This year we had three major Meritorious promotions, for ArmedHyde, Wookchuck and Epsi.  These are special moments, where we celebrate members long dedication and commitment to a position and have gone above and beyond their duties.
@ArmedHyde & @TGxWoodchuck - HERE
@TG Epsi Promoted to the rank of 4 star General - HERE

In September, the TG discord went through some major changes and is now open to the public. Also to note, we achieved a level 3 nitro boost which adds some awesome perks to the server like our own custom discord URL, 1080p streaming and more server emotes.
 
In October, League of Legends ran a 1v1 tournament on the Twitch Channel in aid of ChildsPlay Charity and raised over $600 which was awesome.
 
A few weeks later, @MissVendettaXO ran a charity stream for Breast Cancer Research Foundation which TG raised made over $1600 and combined with 2 other communities that ran under our campaign that totaled to around $8000.

To end our glorious year of charity streams, we ran a big event for The USO,  a Veterans Charity in which we raised over $2150 for the amazing cause which was organised by @Senile Sarge - See the ATO HERE
 

These are some of the big moments, events and achievements TG has produced over the year. 
TG has accomplished quite a lot this year, given the year that it has been, TG is still going strong and is only going to get better.  
A Massive thank you to everyone who puts in the work and time to make these events happen, to recruit and bring joy and happiness to everyone's lives here in TG
 
and here's to a Happy New Year
