What It's Like To Be... Episode 13

What It's Like To Be...
Chief of Staff for Tactical Adventures

 
 
 
Hello TG and welcome to the thirteenth and last 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 members right up to the VP. 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 am interviewing the big cheese, Senile Sarge. Chief of Staff for Tactical Adventures!
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to this position?
 
 
Senile Sarge: As a gamer, I play a lot of Open World, MOBA's and MMO's so it was great to be able to join the team over at Tactical Adventures. Obviously, we tried this before with Tactical Sports, but with the help of League of Legends, we were able to make a name that allows us to create a spot for games that don't fit into Tactical Warfare but our community wants to play.  Being able to bring some unique games to the community is what attracted me the most to this position.  When Diablo comes, I have done my part.  
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: You've been in your position of Chief of Staff since 2018. What is the main reason for staying in the position?
 
Senile Sarge: To watch the Franchise achieve greatness.  The hardest part of the TA thus far is finding the right games to help us get movement forward.  I truly want to see the success of TA because most of the games that fit into the TA structure have unbelievably large communities that support the titles and there is a competitive spirit around most. 
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell us the best highlight while serving as a CoS?
 
Senile Sarge: The challenges of building the Franchise is the biggest highlight.  There is never a dull moments associated with building something new.  The other highlight for me as the Tactical Adventures Chief of Staff is watching League of Legends continue to be successful as a Legion.  The game released in 2009 and we continue to get recruits daily.  This is a true testament to the leadership and members inside of the Legion.  It is great to be part of something so special.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to TG when you first joined?
 
Senile Sarge: Being part of the military when I joined, I wanted something that promoted the idea of communication, teamwork and structure.  This made fitting into the organization much easier for me.  Once I became part of the organization, it is the virtual friendships that has kept me here.  To know that we are all one community building a special place that everyone is part of. 
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: I imagine you are busy with been the Chief of Staff of Tactical Adventures. What is it about being a CoS that you love?
 
Senile Sarge: The members.  No questions it is why I am still in this organization to begin with.  If I can help push things in a direction that positively impacts the members, then it is why I am here.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell me a little more about your TG history?
 
Senile Sarge: It is a long list and not sure you would read it all.  I have been lucky to fill almost all the positions across Tactical Gaming at one point or another.  Each has had a different impact on me personally and professionally.  Tactical Gaming has had a huge impact on me throughout my life.  For those that want to know where I have been, my profile is the best place to find the details.  Like everyone here, I just stepped up when others needed me and luckily have had alot of great opportunities. 
 
 
 

TG SmokeyB: Just for fun. If you where having your last meal tomorrow, what would it be?
 
Senile Sarge: No questions it would be the most expensive steak I could find.  If they were out, it would simply be a pepperoni pizza.....
 
 
 
Thank you very much @Senile Sarge for taking part in this interview and been the last person to take part in this series.
 
This series has been going on for a year and it has been brilliant learning about different members in Tactical Gaming. To all those loyal readers who have kept up with the series, i give you my most heart felt thanks. 
 
A new series is coming soon that will focus on members of TG, but more as a gamer then a member of our community.
 
This series may return in the future, but for now, this is it.
 
MANY THANKS AGAIN FOR READING THIS ARTICLE THAT HAS LASTED A YEAR

Xbox Series X/S - Specs/Pricing/Release Date

Xbox One Series X Is Getting Tasty
 
Now, last month my colleague here at the News Team released an article on the Xbox Series X and we now have some juicy bits of information to drop on top of it. Now as we all know, the battle of supremacy in the consoles has been raging for what feels like an eternity and we now have the specs for the Series X and his little brother hiding behind him.
 
So lets get right into it with the current information we can find...
CPU: Eight-core 3.8GHz (3.6GHz with SMT) custom AMD 7nm GPU: 12 teraflops 1.825GHz (locked) RAM: 16GB GDDR6 Frame rate: Up to 120 fps Resolution: Up to 8K Optical: HD Blu-Ray disk drive Storage: 1TB NVMe SSD  
Now for me this doesn't mean too much but essentially what this all comes down to is a massive increase in the speed games are loaded in, as well as being able to load 2 games simultaneously and load from one to the other without shutting the first off like we do at the moment. As well as the quicker loading, the Series X is aimed at being designed to have a focus at playing games smoother and faster in higher detail at up to 120 frames per second bringing it closer to a gaming PC.
 
In our previous article we mentioned the good stuff of the new Xbox running the same Ray tracing tech that was brought to Modern Warfare and some other more recent releases, as well as auto low latency mode and dynamic latency input. Once again a lot of words i struggle to grasp with but its all boiling down to the direction Microsoft are going. 4k gaming at 120 fps with all this background goodness bringing you more immersion than ever. Now the Series X will be compatible with 8k however with the focus so heavily on the 60fps/120fps smooth 4k gaming its sort of taking a back seat at the moment. More of a spare round in the chamber to be fired at a later date, kind of deal.
 

 
At the moment of writing this article it does not appear that the Series X is intentionally pushing towards any kind of a strong VR bias but who knows what the future of gaming ever truly holds? Microsoft's chief marketing officer did say "we do not have any plans specific to Xbox" regarding questions on virtual reality or even a combination with mixed reality which begs the question why didn't he say Microsoft instead of Xbox?
 

 
The new controller is very similar to the current controllers with 3 tweaks, a share button has been added for...well...sharing....and the directional pad has had its influence taken from the current elite controller’s as well as the pad being foreword compatible. Which essentially mean the controller will work with the Xbox and PC. However good news for those forking out for the elite and elite 2, they will be compatible with the new console so no need to be making any new investments on that side.
 
Speaking of investments, there is a little brother in the works to the X, the Xbox Series S will be a slightly shorter version with less power and no disk drive and will be unlikely to consistently hit the 4k threshold for gaming. The reasoning of this seemed a little off until we look into Microsoft's new service called Project X cloud will we check into in a moment.
 
Now, it has been confirmed that the Series X will not be getting any generational exclusive games for its first year of release, instead you will be getting 2 versions of the same game via a new service called 'Smart Delivery' as long as the games development company have set it up as well. Essentially if you were to buy a game on the Xbox One and then upgrade to the Series X you would still have the game...no issue there, but the game installed on the Series X would be a Series X specified version designed to run on the more powerful console and utilize it as intended. Think of it as a free way of remastering 360 titles to the XB1. Also the Series X will be backwards compatible 3 generations depending on the game.
 

(above pulled from digital trends)
 
Now, above is the comparison between the Series X and the Series S that set to release around the same time as each other and the Series S is looking to be aimed more at using the project Xcloud. At the moment, PlayStation have a system up where you can stream play games from the cloud, a service not included in Microsoft's arsenal, apart from a sneaky hint all the way back to the E3 demo in 2018 where it was mentioned that it was being worked on. It was later code named Project Xcloud and appears to be making its way into the Series X and Series S hence the lower powered little brother not getting its disc drive. Now little information on prices and exact ways this will work but its getting a rough idea around the $10-$15 a month mark which isn't too much of a kick in the teeth compared to the game pass live bundle there at the moment, whether all 3 roll into one or Xcloud is a separate entity remains to be seen.
 
Currently the Xbox Series X is due to release on November10th at $500 with the Series S Dropping the same day for $300. Pre orders begin this month on September the 22nd
 
 
What do you think of the new specs & Microsofts new plans? leave a comment below with your thoughts and feelings on the Series X and it's little brother

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer Reveal

This is an add-on to a previous article written by @TG Darkis located below:
 
Oh man! Boy am I hyped for this. The Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer was revealed just a few days ago on September 9, with never before seen gamemodes and features. The FULL 4 HOUR REVEAL is below, and the normal reveal trailer is below that too.
 
 
 
Now that you've seen a little bit of the action here, let's have a look at the next generation of Black Ops Multiplayer: with deniable operations, signature combat and a connected experience across the community.
 
 
DENIABLE OPERATIONS
In Black Ops Cold War, you can choose your own operators to play as, just like the previous Call of Duty games, with their own backstories which click into the game's larger narrative, which carries over into multiplayer which takes place in the years after the events of the singleplayer campaign. 
 
You'll be dropping into deniable operations all over the world, including the North Atlantic, pure amphibious warfare between anchored battleships, submarines and smaller boats to move around. The searing deserts of Angola, where you have to capture a crashed United States satellite and make sure it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. To the neon-soaked streets of Miami South Beach, where combat reaches from into the bars and clubs to down on the coast and into the water. Take advantage of the wide-open combat spaces with room to weave and vehicles to take control of, or the traditional three lane map design.
 
The traditional fan-loving 6v6 modes include: Team Deathmatch, Domination, Free-for-all, Hardpoint, and Search and Destroy. Control is also returning from Black Ops 4, but new modes are coming to the game from Day One of the release, VIP Escort, Combined Arms, and Fireteam.
 
- Treyarch, on the VIP ESCORT
 
- Treyarch, on Combined Arms
 
- Treyarch, on Fireteam
 
SIGNATURE COMBAT
Signature combat means a lot of fast action, fan-favourite weaponry, fluid movement, and rock-solid game mechanics. All of the pieces have to fit just right for each new entry in the series. It's about giving the players the tools they need to win. The new Create-a-Class is slot-based, giving players the freedom to choose a primary, secondary, tactical, lethal, Field Upgrade, WILDCARD, and a full set of Perks in every loadout.
 
Signature combat has to include a wide range of Cold War era weapons. Including the "time-tested" AK-47 assault rifle, the burst M16 tactical rifle, AK-74u submachine gun, and a whole new Black Ops arsenal. 
 
There are a LOT more changes happening, a bit too much to put on paper here, but in game it's been carefully implemented to serve a more balanced and fulfilling multiplayer experience across the board. 
 
A CONNECTED EXPERIENCE
Black Ops Cold War brings Next-Gen, Cross-Gen and Cross-Play compatibility so players can play with their mates no matter which platform they're on across current-gen consoles, next-gen consoles, or PC. All post-launch multiplayer maps and modes will be free for all players and the game will feature a unified progression journey shared with Call of Duty: Warzone, adding inventory items that can be used in both titles. Both games will also share post-launch content from a narrative standpoint, interweaving some of the themes, weapons, and Operators of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone.
 
--
The game releases on November 13, but before that, the Open Beta kicks off in just a couple of weeks, starting off on October 8 for Early-Access pre-orders on PS4. 

The PS5 - Continued...

PlayStation 5 Continued...
 
This is an add-on to a previous article written by @JaiyoHD. It is located below:
 
The PS5 will be able to play previously installed PS4 games from the PS Store and PS4 discs, just without the enhanced graphics unlike the Xbox Series S and X which can't support Xbox One disc inserted games. 
 
Integrated SSD storage is another feature coming to the PS5 as well as possibly Dolby Atmos. Adding on to the article above, the PS5 is set to be released during the holiday season, rumored to be around November 20 as most consoles are launched on a Friday, and both the PS3 and PS4 were released on the third Friday of November, in this case it's November 20. Another date is November 27, which is also Black Friday... Sony might be planning a bit of a dirty move there. 
 
Pre COVID-19, Sony was planning to sell around 6 million PlayStation 5's by March 2021, but with the global impact of COVID and everyone in their homes, Sony has doubled production and is aiming to have 10 million sold by March. The price is still unconfirmed. 
 
That's all the need-to-know news for now. Stay safe, have fun, and keep on gaming!

What It's Like To Be... Episode 12

What It's Like To Be...
Squad Assistant for an CP squad

 
 
 
Hello TG and welcome to the twelfth episode of  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 CoS. 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 am interviewing a fellow Call of Duty player, Dussttin, who is Squad Assistant of Jutland, PS4's successful Competitive Squad.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to this position?
 
 
Dussttin: I enjoy playing Call of Duty competitively and thought this was the way I could best represent Tactical Gaming. It’s also given me the chance to play with other talented players, where we can all combine our tactics to improve together.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: You've been in your position of Squad Assistant since March this year. What is the main reason for staying in the position?
 
Dussttin: The main reason is that it’s been really fulfilling getting the opportunity to rebuild the competitive squad, which had fallen off a bit recently. Looking at how far we’ve come over the last couple months is a little surreal and a testament to the work put in by the entire team.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell us the best highlight while serving as a SA?
 
Dussttin: Definitely consistently sitting inside the top-50 and 1% of teams on Gamebattles. We’ve also accumulated over 100 wins in July and that’s just going to continue as we make a playoff push. As a squad, we’ve overcome a lot of adversity and stuck with it despite things getting tough at times. It makes it all feel worth it, especially getting to do it with my brother @Koda_Nole.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: What attracted you to TG when you first joined?
 
Dussttin: The closeness of the community and how personable everyone is is very enticing. To me, it’s the people that make Tactical Gaming. We all enjoy playing video games, but it’s hard to find people you enjoy playing with. I’ve found that here and hope that continues for a long time. Shout out to Amp and Mitchell for supporting us from the beginning. 
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: I imagine you are busy with been a Squad Assistant of a CP Squad. What is it about being a SA that you love?
 
Dussttin: Outside of playing, just the conversations with the guys during and in between matches. We have some pretty hilarious stuff that goes on and usually have good chemistry. It’s great when your teammates can be actual friends as well. Thanks to all the guys for the attitudes they bring daily; @iz_Slick, @Koda_Nole, @Tippyy-_- & @AyeOli.
 
 
 
TG SmokeyB: Can you tell me a little more about your TG history?
 
Dussttin: I joined Tactical Gaming last spring during Blacks Op 4. Shortly into my tenure, I knew I wanted to be on the best squad and worked to build that. As we went into Modern Warfare, I kept that mentality as a squad leader and squad assistant. I’m proud of what we’ve done but there’s more coming.
 
 

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

Dussttin: At least in the Call of Duty Division, there’s not much I would change. The entire regiment has done a fantastic job of recruiting. When I first joined, there were five or six squads with not many members, now there are 14 squads and two competitive squads. Like I said before, it’s the people here that are the drawing factor to TG. As long as that continues, this will be an attractive community for many to call home. 
 
 

TG SmokeyB: Just for fun. If you where having your last meal tomorrow, what would it be?
 
Dussttin: Hmmm tough, but a good t-bone steak with some grilled shrimp and bread rolls would be tough to beat.
 
 
 
Your squad has done some great things recently and have been, rightly so, been awarded for it. Well done to you all!
 
Many thanks @Dussttin for taking part in this interview!
 
Stay tuned for the LAST article next month! We are coming close to the end of this series, but a new series is coming.
