Battlefield 2042 Season 1, Zero Hour

Battlefield 2042 Season One, Zero Hour has been released! Finally, after many long months Season One Battle Pass has been issued. The Battlefield community has certainly suffered some lows waiting for the first season to kick off, time will tell if the opening season quenches their fiery disappointment thus far.  So many goodies to comb through, weapons and vehicles to name just two, but the new map is the star of this show.
EXPOSURE - This new map is large yet has many different points of interests to attempt to please all players. For example, on the outskirts the map has large fields for land vehicles to fight one another. However, they must be careful not to get bombed by the new stealth helicopters. As the player ventures towards the center of the map the mountains, and their never-ending tunnel system, turn into small choke points. It is an infantry battle like no other! As the player drifts to the lower valley section of the map, every option comes into play while utilizing land vehicles, air vehicles and infantry. Although the map is large, it is not overwhelming like some of the previous maps within the 2042 release. The objectives are far enough from one another, yet it is not a life ending marathon to run to the next objective.
This first season has offered the players some new vehicles, weapons, and gadgets. The two new helicopters, RAH 68 Huron and TG-99 Hannibal, should please those players that appreciate flight battle. Both helicopters can utilize stealth mode, which add a new challenge to infantry shooting them down. Except for the new operator, Ewelina Lis, who has a new rocket launcher. The launcher does not lock onto a target, rather the player guides the rocket as it vaults through the air. The new weapons included with Season One are a new rifle, BSV-M DMR, and the R-10 Crossbow. The DMR is best used at midrange, while the crossbow uses light, medium and heavy explosive ammunition. A smoke grenade launcher has also been added to the arsenal. This gadget will be ideal for those who love playing medic and utilizing smoke as cover for a quick revive.  
The inaugural season to 2042 is a welcomed installment of the release. The added operator, weapons and especially the new map offer a new perspective for current and future players. If reports are accurate, more changes are to come throughout the summer. But for now, Battlefield 2042 Season One, Zero Hour will have to quail the appetite of the Battlefield community.

After a steady quick rise from the brink of almost closing, Tactical Gaming is proud to announce the opening of the Destiny Division with three full squads*, staff that are passionate about the community and the drive to continue growing. Destiny re-emerged as a division after seven weeks within the Vanguard Division and quickly grew from one squad to three full squads making it one of the fastest division to enter and leave Vanguard in TG history and the first division to open with a Competitive Squad whom places within the top 7% of all players within Trials of Osiris, The Third Spire (CP).
The launch of the new Witch Queen expansion plus the tenacity and charm of Destiny’s membership base within TG fueled this rapid growth with an emphasis on recruiting allowing the squads to teach new activities to members in classic Destiny fashion with a TG twist. The commitment of members and staff to participate in and host gaming events almost every night set Destiny on a path it has never been on in the two other times before Destiny was a fully-fledged Division. The Witch Queen expansion brought the Destiny player base back to Destiny with fire in their eyes experiencing the story of Savathûn, the Witch Queen and exploring the story of the Darkness. Many of Destiny’s player base throughly enjoy the lore of the game and Bungie’s decision to focus on storytelling made this expansion one of the best expansions in the history of Destiny. TG was able to capitalize on this by opening Destiny in Vanguard at the release of this game changing expansion allowing for limitless growth for the new division.
Destiny as a division has been around in some shape or form, first opening in 2014 with the release of Destiny, a game changing title that sparked the curiosity of the Destiny universe and the Light vs Dark saga story within the game. Destiny closed shortly afterwards with the shortcomings of the game during the Dark Below expansion due to lack of interest. Destiny 2 Division reopened in 2017 with a strong roar climbing to being one of the largest divisions in TG at one point in time due to the interest in the game, especially after the release of the Forsaken expansion. Destiny then closed during the beginning of 2022 and was moved to Vanguard on life support about to face closure. Dedicated members who took on the challenge hit the streets afterwards spent March, April and now May to meet their dream, a Destiny Division once more. 

Destiny has a history of competitiveness like other Divisions with several squads in the past achieving World’s First raid completions with high marks, with one team placing as 5th out of 130,000 teams in Leviathan: Eater of Worlds Raid Race completion as well as three teams placing in the top 10% of all players in the raid race for Crown of Sorrows. Destiny Division is looking to continue this time honored tradition by aggressively participating in many more raid races and accomplishments in Trials of Osiris. 
The Third Spire (CP), as previously mentioned, has placed in the top 7% of all players within Trials and has ambitions to become legend by continuing to shatter records and set new TG records, a Destiny first. Sol Divisive (CO-OP) has ambitions to shatter records and fill the shoes of their predecessors by continuing to work towards training their tactics and shattering the records set by the members of the previous Destiny Division by participating and finishing top of the spectrum in future raid races.
May 15th, 2022 marks a special day for TG and the Destiny Division by serving as the birth of a Division slated to reach for the stars. Make us proud, Destiny Division!
What staff said about the Vanguard experience, reopening and the future of Destiny:
@Neuromancer, Third Spire (CP) SL: “I feel elated to reincarnate Destiny 2 and to return it to its former state and beyond. A second chance to infuse all of the experience and work from the beginnings of TG until now into a focused effort is an amazing opportunity. “
@wolfishhalfling, Sol Divisive (CO-OP) SA: “Being in the TG Vanguard was a very welcoming experience, it was nice to have a little space carved out in the clan for Destiny players to help foster a community of fellow enthusiasts, but it felt like we were missing some potential. With the opening of the Destiny Division I feel like that missing potential is well within reach. With our additional tools and momentum I am confidant that we will be able to grow this community into a titan of positive vibes, strong sense of community, and world-class gameplay.”
@Sparx, Sol Divisive (CO-OP) SL: “Being in the former Destiny 2 Division, I learned a lot in my experiences from SM to BGC which I carry into the new incarnation of Destiny. Mikepaluso and his team at Vanguard were amazing people to work with as we worked diligently to rebuild the Destiny Division from one to many. I’ll admit, the opening of the Division was something we celebrated with fist bumps and a ton of high energy. Destiny renewed has a lot of ambitions and we will not stop. We have plans to continue our stellar growth, forge new friendships and take this Division to the top. With our amazing leadership team here at Destiny, anything is possible and I look forward to what we can accomplish together as a community.”
@Nebula, House of Wolves (IN) SL: “
Hey there, my name is Nebula and I am the House of Wolves (IN) squad SL! 
After joining back to TG after my 2 year disappearance I was sorely surprised to notice that the Destiny Division had disappeared. Shortly after learning this I was told how it had moved to the Vanguard division and needed to be rebuilt again. So arm in arm with my fellow squad staff (and cheers from the CoS) we built up the division again till it finally graduated to be a full on division again!!!
My experience in the Vanguard Division was very positive. For the most part we did not have any battalion staff, but that didn’t halt our progress. We were very lucky and fortunate to have the blessing of MikePaluso (the DO) and TypicalVeteran (the CoS) to help us along when we needed it due to our lack of batt staff. Overall being in Vanguard has taught me the importance and sanctity of building your own division and watching it grow legs and support itself. 
On the graduation note, I am overjoyed about graduating from Vanguard! I enjoyed the stint we had there, but we had to take our loyal members and spread our wings. 

What does the future of destiny look like to me… I want with all my heart that it will succeed and pass its predecessor but i know we will certainly have some bumps on the way. It’s just how we keep together as a division going through the bumps that will show how great we will be.”
*As of the posting of this article, Destiny opened its fourth squad, one day after it opened as a Division.

Battlefield Division is Going Nuclear!

Battlefield Division is Going Nuclear!
The variety offered within the Battlefield Division is going nuclear! There is something for everyone! Battlefield Division has not only merged as crossplay, with new Division Officer JustanEnigma, but will attempt to carry multiple Battlefield Titles simultaneously. One Battlefield game will be the newest release, Battlefield 2042. While another game is Battlefield V, the title released in November of 2018. And if you are fortunate enough to have an Xbox Series X, and find yourself within the Timberwolves Squad, the Battlefield Titles also include within play rotation are Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4. Why would Battlefield Division attempt to carry multiple titles of Battlefield? Because Battlefield 2042 has complications with how the game was rolled out to consumers.
For the most part anyone within the gaming world realizes the issues with the newest release of the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield 2042. The excitement for this release was massive, and loyal fans chomped at the bit for a modern Battlefield game. Not only exciting new graphics and game modes, but the joy of cross platform was to be introduced. It was not long after the release of 2042, that the excitement manifested into frustration. The game had function errors, but more importantly to TG members the game did not have in-game communication. To communicate with squamates a player had to be in a private party chat, with zero in-game communication.  Additionally, having multiple squads join the same game was almost impossible. This aspect has had a domino effect creating lack of enthusiasm towards the game, which in turn diminishes not only recruiting but member retention. That is not to say some do not enjoy playing 2042. They do, and Battlefield Division has decided to try and please all who adore the Battlefield series. But there might be some tricky waters to navigate within the process?  
The most recent Battlefield Title, Battlefield 2042, was designed to include two versions of the game to be played.  But wait...that is not all! Battlefield 2042 also offers different versions of the game that can only be played on certain platforms.  One version of the game was created to be played on the previous generation of consoles, PS4 and Xbox One. This version can be played cross platform, but exclusively with older generation consoles.  Then Dice, the developer of Battlefield, created a version of the game that is played cross platform on the newest generation of consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as with PC. This aspect of the design splits the player base. Those with older consoles cannot play with those that have been fortunate enough to get their hands on the newest versions of consoles, or a PC. To solve this issue Battlefield Division will have designated squads for a specific version of the game, to be played on a specific platform or combination of platforms.
Although improvements have been made by the development team of Battlefield 2042, for some members, the problems outweighed the desire to play the game at all. But the appeal of playing as a team, in true TG fashion, was still desired by Battlefield Division members and obtainable within the Battlefield V and older Battlefield titles.  Therefore, the decision was made to allow Battlefield V, as well as other previous Titles, back into the Division. If Battlefield is your preference of an FPS game, no matter what platform you prefer to play, then check out Tactical Gaming’s Battlefield Division.
*Find yourself curious? Battlefield Division will also be streaming practices.

Super-ships in World of Warships

Super-ships in World of Warships
       Howdy everyone Welcome back to the Super-ships. In this new article and the following articles, I'll be explaining all ten super-ships that have been announced. Please note that 2 of the ships that were announced are still in testing. Let's start off with the very first two Super-ships that were announced: Hannover and Satsuma. 
German Battleship Hannover
            The Hannover is one of the first two super-ships to be introduced. She’s named after the German city of Hannover that’s located in the German state of Lower Saxony. The ship itself is based on the H-42 proposal that called for 2x4 19-inch guns on a displacement of 90k tons. The H-42 is part of series of battleship design projects that were supposed to be further development studies of the Bismarck class, the collective name for these proposals were called the H proposals, they were given numbers to designate what year they were introduced. For, H-42, for example dates in the year of 1942. The Hannover, like the rest of the German battleships in the game, has a strong secondary armament, that is well suited for close-range brawling. Hannover, benefits from having 19-inch guns that allows it to penetrate bows of almost all the ships that are currently in the game; All of this come at a cost. Hannover has extreme difficulties when trying to turn that makes this behemoth challenging to maneuver when trying to conduct evasive maneuvers. The massive size of this ship alone is also a problem, most ordnance fired at this ship will generally hit. Though Hannover's armor is very good, it has a similar armor scheme to most German battleships (which is the Turtle-backed scheme) therefore, she's very much vulnerable to plunging fire. Hannover’s adjustment firing bonus, increases her: secondary armament range, secondary armament rate of fire and the rate of fire of the main guns as well, however, lasts for about 25 seconds. This boast in range increases the Hannover’s secondary gun range to 14.1 km, this makes Hannover the longest secondary range of any ship in the game. In comparison most ships have secondary ranges from 6-12 km. Adjustment firing mechanic is activated when a progress bar is full; but the player can lose progress in the bar for a certain time of without hitting or landing near misses to a target, though when the bar is full the player doesn’t lose any progress on the bar. So, this new mechanic rewards active gameplay throughout a match. Originally this mechanic was automatically activated when the progress bar was full, but now the player can control when the adjustment firing is activated. I can’t stress how massive this vessel is, when this vessel was in testing there were problems with its size as it was too big fit in some places in some maps. 
Japanese Battleship Satsuma
            Satsuma, like Hannover is one of the first two super-ships to be introduced. Originally, along with Hannover, was introduced as part of an event that was a temporary game mode called Legendary battle. In this, players were able to play these behemoths against the normal tech tree tier 10 ships. This game mode was a success as it was widely welcomed by players. Satsuma is based on the Japanese A-150 battleship project, this was supposed to be a successor to the Yamato class. The Japanese, using false intelligence reports, believed that the U.S was planning a battleship class that was supposedly better armed than the Yamato class. In an attempt to not get outdone by the U.S, the Imperial Japanese navy proposed 3 designs. Satsuma is based on one of these proposed designs, specifically the 90k ton design with massive 2x4 20-inch guns. This design would’ve been a massive vessel and heavily armed, but due to resource shortages and the start of 2nd World War; this vessel was never laid down. Satsuma plays similarly to the Yamato in the game indeed it even looks like the Yamato (Yamato is a tier 10 tech tree battleship), it has an emphasis on long-range engagements similar to Yamato. With its 20-inch guns it can punch through any bow of any ship in the game and has the largest gun caliber in the game. Satsuma, however, is also armed with a secondary armament of 2x4 8-inch guns, this would be the largest secondary gun caliber in the game; with most vessels being armed with 5- or 6-inch gun secondary guns. The ship is named after a Japanese Samurai clan named, Satsuma Domain (1671-1877). This clan led a rebellion against the newly established, Imperial Japanese government, in 1877 where the clan was soundly defeated. Satsuma’s Firing adjustment increases the main guns reload times and increase its accuracy for 25 seconds, with that boast in accuracy this ship is the most accurate ship in the game. Combining her accuracy and her 20-inch guns, she has the potential to do massive damage to any target even at long range. However, this ship does have its own weaknesses. For starters she, like Hannover turns extremely slowly making her vulnerable to enemy fire. Though, her armor is better than Yamato's, it still has the same armoring scheme as the Yamato; due to this, it doesn't allow her to engage in close ranged engagements she would come out that engagement either sunk or heavily damaged.
              Both Hannover and Satsuma not only serve as the super-ships for their respective nation's battleship tech lines. It also served as a testing platform for future super-ships. While it is not yet known if the firing adjustment will be repeated on any future regular tech tree or premium ships. For now, though this mechanic does seem to be unique specifically to Super-ships. What other super-battleships that are announced? Well, we do know that a French Super-battleship has been announced, I 'll be explaining more about that vessel in the next article. However, that French ship though was announced on March 10th, 2022, and is still in testing as we speak.

Super-ships in World of Warships

In late 2020, Wargaming announced super-ships were going to be introduced into the game. The first two that were introduced were Satsuma and Hannover. The Super-ship concept is supposed to follow a hypothetical scenario where the great WW2 powers continue development of newer ships of the time. The Super-ships were to be not only just better versions of their older in-game counterparts but come with them a new mechanic called Firing Adjustment. This new game mechanic for these super-ships, gives the vessel a combat bonus to the player’s ship that lasts for a short time, but is activated when the player scores hits or near misses on a target.
As of February 2022, Wargaming has announced ten super-ships of various types, these ships are to be added as a continuation of existing tech trees; however, Wargaming announced in a recent live Podcast that was published on January 31st, 2022, that the results are promising for super ships, however they did state that the work on how to put these ships in the respective tech trees is still ongoing. Though super ships are not currently available in their respective tech trees, players can still play them in game as part of a special category in-game where players can earn temporary in-game resource to exchange for the super-ships.
A very big announcement was made regarding the super ships on March 14, 2022. Wargaming has decided on the cost of these ships and finally announced that they will be added as part of the tech tree. The cost that was stated was that these vessels won't cost research points (the typical currency used to research tech tree ships in the game); rather than researching these ships, players will be able to purchase them with credits (common in game currency that can easily be gained while playing). Players must own at least three tier tens and have already researched the prior ships of the respective line of the super ship, as pre-requisites before purchasing the super ship.
Cost of these ships are the following:
• Super battleships: 57 million credits
• Super carriers: 48 million credits
• Super cruisers: 47.5 million credits
•  Super destroyers 45 million credits
It was also stated in the publication that the servicing costs of these vessels will be 360k credits, for reference the standard servicing cost for a tier 10 is 135k. “This is to ensure that both, they don’t become overly popular in matchmaker and ensure that tier tens have an economic advantage over them.” This was quoted from the recent publication regarding this concept. It is worth mentioning that all this just entered testing as of March 2022, so the numbers regarding the economics should be taken with a grain of salt as these numbers could very well change. 
What are your thoughts on the super-ships?

ATO- TG_Recruiter_Rob

Is hereby awarded

The Tactical Gaming Corps Commander Coin

Over the course of the last year, Recruiter_Rob has been an integral part of the Battlefield PlayStation Division. Within his first two months, he became Executive Officer and only a few short months later, he became the Commanding Officer for first battalion.  In September 2021, his BGC @TG-Red291, was on a deployment and unable to fulfill his duties. Recruiter_Rob saw the need for a BGC during Red's time away, so he stepped up to the plate. He graciously told Red that when he was able to return to TG that he would step down so Red could take back the BGC position.  
Since September 2021, things in the Battlefield Division have changed drastically. They have experienced many struggles especially with the state of 2042, which has led them to become a single crossplay brigade. One thing that has not changed is Rob's integrity. Red came back to Battlefield just a few weeks ago, and now Recruiter_Rob has stepped down and handed the BGC reigns back to Red, even though he did not have to do this especially since the PlayStation BGC is no longer a position.
In addition to the way he handled this situation, Rob is always willing to take time out of his day to help others. Whether this is a new SM or someone new to staff, he is willing to help them navigate the site and offer assistance in game. @OFLU_Shadowghost said, "I lost count of the hours he spent with me when I first joined TG….out of practice time. A CO setting up a private tutorial for a new SM? Nahhh? I've YET to see it from any other CO or BGC. And I am not the only one he does this for within TG. He helped Red this way after we recruited Red. He helped Gardiner this same way. Almost everything I know (we know) about 'the TG way" is because of Rob."

Rob is always quick to respond whenever called upon. He is very active, and has helped to keep the Battlefield Division strong. We need more leaders with his positive outlook and willingness to help others!
Rob, looking forward to see what your future holds for you. Even though you relinquished your duties as BGC, I am sure that you will continue to help the TG members feel welcomed and comfortable here!

Join the journey of Overwatch 2! "Are you with me?"

Are all you gamers out there ready for Overwatch 2? Do you want to get a feel of the game? A game that only took a ….. bit of time to get released!
You can try the game out in late April at https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/beta/#optin
Overwatch owns its success to Blizzard, which has spent a lot of time and energy on character development. Smooth transitions in-between rounds. Moreover, every game you play feels fast-paced, engaging, and different. 

For those who have never played Overwatch before. Overwatch is a 6v6 multiplayer, First-person shooter (fps in short) set in the near future. The style of the game is cartoonish. The game itself can become very competitive very quickly. Or you stick to quickplay and mess around until you know what you are doing, or go all-out Genji on everyone.

For those of you that don't like competitive mode, and don't like to get killed every single time in respawn by a Bastion, there is good news!!! Overwatch 2 comes with a PvE feature. This will come in a separate release. Next to that, PvP in Overwatch 2 will only be with five players per team instead of six. And there will be a new game mode, a new character (finally), and four new maps to explore!
The new game mode added to Overwatch2 is called "push". Here teams must attempt to escort a robot over the finish line while holding each other off. Sojourn will be the first Canadian character officially added to the Overwatch team roster. For more information about her, check out this video: Overwatch 2 New Hero Sojourn Revealed! | BlizzCon Highlights - YouTube
The beta release for the game will be for PvP only. If you want to participate in the game's closed beta, The game itself will be released in 2023, with the PvP version released at the end of 2022 separately.
Will you join the beta? Are you going to buy the new game? Tell us what you think of the game in the comments below!
