Back to the fundamentals

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!
 
Structure 
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. 
 
Awards 
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. 
 
Updated Website
I would like to thank the web team including @CjA1418, @TGxMaddawg138and @TGxSilK on the coders side and @TG BulletDrop from the Digital Media side who are stepping up to
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. 👍
 
Want to help? Become a TG Sponsor 
 
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  
Have Questions? 
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.

Halo Infinite Season 2 Content Revealed

Halo Infinite has had silence around its future content which has started making a lot of the community disinterested in playing and interacting with the game.
 
However, we've recently received information on lots of new content for Season 2 in the form of new maps, game modes, and both paid and free battle passes. Forge is still on track for Season 3, but co-op campaign has unfortunately been delayed again.
Hopefully this content for Season 2 will be enough to get the community back into a positive mindset around the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 Is Back?

Project Red's Cyberpunk 2077 has had a rocky start since it's launch at the end of 2020, with fans left disappointed and feeling let down at a title which promised to be perfect for next gen consoles. Cyberpunk 2077 has left a bitter taste in users' mouths.
 
But those at Project Red were not going to be left stranded and defeated by the fans and the title's sloppy release. 
A huge update was released for all platforms.
 
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X now have its promised buttery smooth 60 frames per second, while the Xbox Series S is at 30 frames per second. 
With the return of screen space reflections for consoles, so the "wet" made a return to the scene for players to enjoy those beautiful reflections on the ground. 
 
Players can now enjoy a free-five hour "trial" to explore and experience Night City in all its glory, a demo, this is unheard of in 2022. 
 
More about the update, next gen update 1.5 is measured to be a whopping 50 GB and features a reworked perked system. Some skills getting a rework and others to be removed entirely. Players have reported that knife throwing is now pretty good and can even act as a boomerang, now that's cool!
 
With the reintroduction of the rebalanced combat system, enemies seek for cover, react more intelligently and overall appear more human like rather than AI. With improvements to driving also, vehicles feel more life like to handle rather than on permanent ice grip tires with steering wheel connected to a potato.
 
 

A check list of everything which players complained about, reportedly to be fixed within Cyberpunk 2077
 
 
There have been significant upgrades and reworks to the city of Night City too, implementations to make it feel more real, crowds will now react realistically to your actions, rather than an entire street ducking to the floor and cowering in fear when you accidently shoved a passerby, and to not despawn when you simply spin around.
The city itself appears to be more lively, in a way that is unmatched to its initial launch. A large over haul to the map, lighting, and other quality to life changes to make the users experience more smooth and better to experience.
 
These improvements and changes surely are to improve your Night City experience, and to wipe out the strange bugs which occurred on Next Gen Consoles.
 
Are you looking forward to being able to play Project Red's Cyber Punk once again and experience its full glory?

Halo Infinite Ranks Are Being Reset

Halo Infinite will be getting an update to its competitive ranked playlist this coming Tuesday (22nd February) which will better distribute players into the skill tiers. Up to now the system has been very generous to the players, placing them higher than they should be.
With this update the ranks of every player will be reset, meaning you will need to complete your placement games once again and should expect to be a full tier lower than what you placed last time.
 
If you want to hear more about this update and exactly what parameters are changing in the playlist, check out the below video.
 
 

Our Support Teams Need You!

Are you wanting to become more involved in the community?
Do you have skills in coding, graphics design, writing, streaming, or training?
If so, we have teams for you!
 
Our Coding, Digital Media, News, and Stream Teams are all positions that you can join in addition to your current position. No need to leave the group of people you are already with!
The Training Office offers game specific positions, so you would be required to leave your squad/section, but you would be able to still play the game during practices!
 
The following are the current open positions based off of each team, with a little insight from different people in TG. 
 
 

 
Do you have experience with coding? We are in need of coders to help make the website run smoothly! Amount of time needed to dedicate to this position depends on tickets that come in and projects that are going on. 
 
@TGxMaddawg138 has been with the Coding Team for a few months, but was also with the coding team during his previous stent in TG.
Here is what he has to say about the team:
"So what I like about the team is that I get to work with Biggy and Hobo as well as the rest of the Web Team and being able to figure out little problems when they arise and being able to go and fix them when needed.  Plus I get a cool looking badge on my profile as well!  😆
The biggest thing that I do right now is focus on Web Tickets and work on the backend of the forum software and fix any issues that may arise, such as permission issues, managing different role permissions/limits etc and then whatever tasks Biggy/Hobo decide they want/need me to do.  It also lets me practice more on my coding ability and get better at doing some of the little things that I haven't been able to do as much since I got my Associates in Computer Networking over 10 years ago."
 
If interested, apply by clicking HERE!
 
 

 
Do you have experience in creating graphics? Do you enjoy being able to be creative by bringing people's ideas to life? We are in need of Digital Media Team members to help create signatures, article images, squad/section banners, avatars, etc. Amount of time needed to dedicate to this position depends on tickets that come in and projects that are going on. 
 
@Osiris has been with the Digital Media Team a few times during his three years in TG.
Here is what he has to say about the team:
"I enjoy working in the DMT because I like to be able to give back to the community through a creative medium. I run a graphics shop as well. Which even though is fairly new I try to get the turnaround rate in a few days."
Here is a recent signature (resized for the purpose of this article) that he created:

 
If interested, apply by clicking HERE!
 
 

 
Would you like to write articles, create videos, conduct podcasts about TG or gaming news? Are you interested, but are worried about your writing capability? We have an editor that can assist! We are in need of News Team members to help spread the word! Amount of time needed to dedicate this time is being able to complete two tasks a month. You can write about things of your choosing or we can help give you ideas. As breaking news comes through in the gaming industry, you may occasionally be assigned an article, but most of the time, you get to pick!
 
@ItzKieren has been on the news team several times during his TG tenures. 
Here is what he has to say about the team:
"I enjoy being in the know, getting to receive the latest gaming related news and to research and share my experience and pass on the knowledge to an amazing community."
 
If interested, apply by clicking HERE!
 
 

 
Do you enjoy streaming your games? Do you already have followers on your personal account? We are in need of streamers to join our Stream Team! Amount of time required is at least 2 hours per week. TG Rules and Regulations must be respected. 
 
@TG Datdamsniper has been a member of the team for about 8 months. 
Here is what he has to say about the team:
"
"I enjoy being on the Stream Team because it allows me to help spread Tactical Gaming in other ways besides just recruiting in game. I find that the Stream Team is a way to put a face to the members of TG especially during the charity events the Stream Team runs as these are always a good time for everyone, and let's us interact with fellow TG members in ways we can't in game while supporting awesome causes!
 I personally tend to stream Rocket League mostly as it is one of my stronger games skill wise,  but being in the Vanguard I also am looking to use the platform as a way of showing off other games in our division and help build them with the ultimate goal of pushing out divisions to help strengthen TG."
 
If interested, apply by clicking HERE!
 
All of the above positions are the ones that you can hold in addition to the position you are currently in.
 

 
The Training Office requires a lot more time and dedication than the above, so that is why you would be required to leave your squad, battalion, or division staff position to join. The training office does many different tasks. A few of them are: assists with new recruits, ensures current staff are trained properly, assist with creating callouts and ATC's, and many more things. If you like being able to work with others, this could be a great position for you!
 
@TG RateMyGame has been an Assistant Trainer for just under one year. He started in Escape from Tarkov, but then transferred to CoD.
Here is what he has to say about the Training Office:
"Being in the TO has a lot of jobs. Firstly the TO is the first point of contact for all new recruits upon registering for TG any questions or queries they may have. Most of our work is on the forums, we create and update all the documents needed for the divisions. This includes the Squad Training Manual, Division Map Callouts, and ATC's, I could go on. On top of this we also make sure that all staff within our respective division have completed the required tests for that role as well as assist staff in all matters regarding training. I enjoy being in the TO because it not only challenges me with thinking of new ideas but to work with the wonderful staff within the CoD Division making the division a better place for all our CoD members."
 
Currently, we have several open positions within the Training Office. If you are interested, please apply:
TW Head Trainer
TW Vanguard Assistant Trainer
Arma Assistant Trainer
Halo Assistant Trainer
LoL Assistant Trainer
 
 
If you are interested in any of the positions, but have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to myself (@TG HSquared) for Coding, Digital Media, News, and Stream Team positions. For the Training Office openings please reach out to your CoC or @TG Killswitch. We look forward to seeing your applications!
