We want to thank the  @Division & Legion Staff ,  @Battalion & Cohort Staff ,  @Squad/Section Staff ,  @TO Assistant Trainers , and  @PRO PRH / PRA that helped to build, test, collaborate, and provide us the feedback to get where we are today.
What's New?
TG Discord is now a Community Server and has reached level 2 thanks to your Nitro Boosts! On the TG Discord you will have: Better quality voice Better quality Discord streams Bigger file upload Auto-Role Assignment for TG and Non-TG Member. You may now assign yourself roles based on game and platform which will allow you to choose what you will and won't see. The #❓faq channel in the TG Discord contains more information. Welcoming environment for Non-TG members. Everyone on the Discord server is expected to follow the Discord server rules in the #📜rules channel. It should be much easier to leverage the TG Discord to show people what TG has to offer.  Anyone can create Discord invites Unify the community! We are partnering with our Division Staff to bring channels that should be open to the whole community to the TG Discord from individual division Discords such as Apex LFG, pet pics, etc. Each Division's/Legion's Staff will move at their own pace and determine what can move over the next 30 days.  
Ongoing Feedback:
We will continue to build and test this over the next few weeks, and we are always open to your suggestions for improvement.. If you find something that is broken on the TG Discord, please report it using our new Discord modmail bot. FAQ info is under the Issues/Moderation Help Category.
You may submit new suggestions for Discord enhancements on the TG site. Please review existing suggestions to make sure you are not submitting a duplicate request.

Potential Future Divisions/Legions

It is that time of the year, we are quickly approaching the 4th quarter for the year where many games will be launching. Many of these games are eagerly anticipated and meet the criteria for a TW or TA title.
In order to open any of these games, we have to have a player base (some with leadership experience) that will commit to transferring to build up the trial division/legion.
This article will showcase the top games under consideration, and we encourage members to review each game and start the conversation on whether these games should become new divisions/legions!

Call Of Duty Black Ops: Cold War

Are You Ready To Answer The Call Of Duty?
Simply put....if you have not checked out the Call Of Duty Trailer for there newest installment into the franchise then please watch this before reading on, we would prefer if you share our level of hype before reading on.
Is everyone still here and licking there lips??? Fantastic, let's crack on with everything we know so far about our newest delve into the Call Of Duty universe.
Now for those who have been following the Call Of Duty games you may remember the constant gripping story lines that sometimes gives you hard decisions and a glimpse into the real life snap decisions that our special forces and armed forces across the world have to be ready to make at any moment and it seems that Cold War is ready to live up to that pedigree. This Game is based as a direct sequel to the events of Black Ops One and is set 13 years after that story line. Your mission? To track down a soviet spy who goes by the name "Perseus" who has been stealing nuclear secrets from the US. With the sometimes gritty truth behind the Call Of Duty games ever since "No Russian" you can expect to be making illicit and sometimes illegal decisions during your foray into this darker side of the Cold War and will be occasionally even be punched with Vietnam Flashbacks thrown into the narrative so be prepared for one hell of a trip.

Some old favorites will be along side with you including Alex Mason, Frank Woods and that smooth headed operator James Hudson. However, in this story line you will be playing as your own customizable character named Bell...for the moment. By Finding information in the game you will reveal redacted information on a document giving you more customization options for your character. It has been confirmed that you will initially have the options of choosing your skin tone and your gender, setting as male, female or classified will change the way the other soldiers and main headliners will refer to you in the Voice Overs respectfully depending upon your preferences.
Now carrying on the storyline side of things, they have taken a different approach this time and there is no singular ending. The way the story plays out and the finale you end up with depends upon the way you handle your missions. The techniques used to complete undercover aspects, accepting and completing optional side missions as well as the missions you can unlock during unique dialogue trees, will give you more immersion into the game.  The writers are counting on this to make the story more a playable feature than the usual 'something to run through' before grinding out multiplayer modes and Warzone.
Official Quote from Call Of Duty Website regarding the campaign.
Oh yes, they have returned my least favorite game mode - due to my personal inability to resist the urge to go full steam ahead into fights - Warzone, which will be coming back, as the free release alongside Modern Warfare has been such a success they are bringing it to Cold War. Call Of Duty Official states "Black Ops Cold War will also support and build on the hit, free-to-play experience Call Of Duty: Warzone". Whether this is a stand alone version or a new map choice with Cold War era weapons we are unsure at this moment, but with them saying they wish to build on Call Of Duty Modern Warfare: Warzone its mere speculation at this point.
On the other end of the spectrum the return of my personal favorite weekend killer, and my favorite part of Treyarch,  Zombies has been confirmed with a new chapter in it's own story for those who followed the original tale across the games and map hints, which i am praying will have a teaser with the official multiplayer reveal on the 9th Of September.
Now the game has an interesting Pre-order system that hints towards the nature of the Next Gen consoles and there release date. In an upcoming article I mention there is a system of where you buy the game and you get a version for the XB1 and a masterwork version if you like, for the Series X. Judging by the Pre-Order options available, this seems quite spot on but it look's like there will be a slight price increase for the double version of the game. This is the second game that's going to have a next gen aspect created specifically that's releasing in mid November so looks like an end of November or early December release of the next gen consoles seems likely. Any Progress and unlocks made on the current gen of console will be carrying forwards onto the new hardware if you decide to purchase those next Gen beasts.

Now at the moment there are 3 versions for consoles and 2 versions for PC that you can Pre-order. There is the standard edition across all 3 which will work on the current Gen consoles which is costing £59.99 and for consoles,  a mere £5 increase at £64.99 you can get the before mentioned Cross Gen version which will allow you to download Cold War for no extra charge to the next gen consoles. Which seems pretty fair to me but they kept the option in only to buy the current gen which i like as it's set to be cross play enabled with the current gen and next gen console. And Lastly there is the Ultimate edition which has the usual bag of goodies, exclusive content skins and the like. All three pre-orders comes with access to the open beta which will last a minimum of 2 days. As a little bonus, when you purchase the Pre-order you also get the Frank Woods operator pack For Modern Warfare.
Keep this space open for any updates firing out to you all and set your reminders for the Multiplayer Official reveal on the 9th September.
Which version are you going to be grabbing? and how many of you will I be seeing playing the beta? leave you thoughts and comments and below because I can't be the only one excited by our next installment.

What It's Like To Be... Episode 11

What It's Like To Be...
Squad Leader for an ST squad

Hello TG and welcome to the eleventh episode of a 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 CoC. 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 had some pleasure of interviewing a former Battlefield colleague, TG White Shade, Squad Leader of DeathDealers(ST) of the Battlefield Division.
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to this position?
TG White Shade: After my transition from the 360 Brigade to XB1, I went from a CO to a squad member. This was initially a nice break but I wanted to get back into a leadership position and run a squad the way I prefer.
TG SmokeyB: You've been in your position of Squad Leader since 2017. What is the main reason for staying in the position?
TG White Shade: The main thing that keeps me around is my fantastic SA and squad members. Death Dealers has been a dream squad for me and I could not pick a better group of guys to spend time with every week.
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell us the best highlight while serving as a SL?
TH White Shade: It's hard to highlight one thing but my squad talked me into trying out my hand at sniping and now it's my favorite class to use.
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to TG when you first joined?
TG White Shade: Back in college I found myself with extra time on my hands and was approached by a couple TG members looking for recruits. The idea of taking my gaming to the next level intrigued me so i joined. I could not be happier with that decision.
TG SmokeyB: I imagine you are busy with been a Squad Leader. What is it about being a SL that you love?
TG White Shade: Being an SL isn't actually all that much work haha. My SA does a fantastic job of helping me with all paperwork and we get along very well. What I love most about my job is always hopping online and having some of my squad members on for some gaming after a long day of work.  We are constantly laughing and having a genuinely great time.
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell me a little more about your TG history?
TG White Shade: Quick overview would look like this:
XO 360
CO 360
And now being an SL is perfectly fine for me.

TG SmokeyB: If you could change one thing in TG, what would it be?

TG White Shade: I would change the language regulations, haha. I have a squad full of men older than me (I'm 26) and I often have to remind people not to swear during practice.

TG SmokeyB: Just for fun. If you where having your last meal tomorrow, what would it be?
TG White Shade: Tongue tacos with Beef tartare on the side!
I personally have no idea what that food is, but fair enough! Ha.
Many thanks to @TG White Shade for taking part in this series.
Stayed tuned for another episode in a months time!
