ATO- Tactical Warfare has a new Colonel

Dusty has been an example of leadership in every aspect of his TG career. When speaking about senior leadership mentoring junior staff Dusty automatically comes to mind. I can always count on Dusty to accomplish any task put in front of him and exceed every standard. It is hard to find leadership of this caliber. DustyLines is enthusiastically recommended for the rank of Colonel based on the merits of his performance and service within Tactical Warfare. With this promotion Dusty reflects great credit upon Tactical Warfare , The Halo Division and himself.

Recruitment Handbook Updated

Attention Everyone,

After many revisions, the Recruitment Handbook has been updated to account for new methods of recruiting. 
 
Updates include: 
Example recruitment messages Reddit / forum recruiting Discord recruiting Division / Legion recruitment contest templates Additional key points & tips when recruiting    
 

Message from TGEC on our Future

Message from TGEC on our Future
 
Tactical Gaming community, we wanted to provide an update as to where we are, and where we are going. There have been a number of changes over the last month with McPatchy (KrizZz) and SenileSarge departing TG. These two contributed greatly to TG and have prepared the next generation of leaders to step up and drive TG forward. (Disclaimer: Some of the links take you to areas that may require different access IE: BTN+ etc)
 
 
1: The Vanguard
 
In the spirit of revealing some of our plans for TG's future, we are announcing the Vanguard. We will be moving forward with a version of the Expeditionary Division/Legion raised by the community. Please note, that we took their feedback and continued to adapt it based on feedback at several levels of leadership across TG.
 
 
TWC/TAC have looked at many iterations of this idea and TGEC has approved the concept:
 
All new games will start in the Vanguard Division or Legion. There will be one in each franchise with different practice times to allow dual membership. People may only be in one position per franchise and critical position rules still apply.  All divisions/legions with less than two full squads/sections will move under the Expeditionary Division/Legion. CoC within the division/legion will have the same structure. The main difference here is that the squads/sections will be based on a game. Once a game has three full squads it will move to a full division/legion. As long as we have one full squad, and TGEC approves the game as a TG supported game, new games (squads/sections) may be opened inside of the Vanguard Division/Legion.  
This approach allows us to adapt to the alpha/beta release games, and the AAA titles that launch with indie game quality, missing features, or issues that have become common place to release games that are not ready. We will be able to support a significantly higher number of games with lower staffing, and rather than closing divisions when they fail the trial phase, they will just move to the Vanguard Division/Legion as long as there is one full squad/section to practice.
 
All TG rules and regulations still apply such as PB's, PPR's, ATS, CPP, etc. 
 
Still have questions about Vanguard? Post them up HERE in our Vanguard Q&A topic!
 
2: Community Feedback Driven Change
 
Within the TG wide survey we received a lot of valuable feedback. We had 119 of 176 responses ask for more casual events, and 116 of 176 responses ask for more tournaments. The PRO(@TG SirMadness) and our CT ( @TG-AMP) will be working over the next several months and making this a priority. 
 
While site suggestions are not always implemented quickly, or at all, they are reviewed. We encourage you to submit them. Vanguard is an example where more than a year of discussion, planning, and work to implement was needed. 
 
As a note:
88% of the 176 responses rate overall experience in TG as 7 of 10 or higher 87% of the 176 responses rate their practices in TG as 7 of 10 or higher  
Behind the scenes we are taking the feedback, like the requests for more recruiting, more events, and building metrics around these goals to measure success.
 
3: Measuring Success
 
Going forward, we would like to communicate clear strategic objectives for the community that are measurable and communicate those metrics to our members. 
Below is the data for registrations to TG over the last 2 years:

 
Over the last 12 months, we averaged 65 registrations per month. Our target will be to reach 80 registrations per month. 
 
Below are the Discord total membership numbers for the TG Discord from Jan 11 to April 26:

From Jan 11 (1,048 members) to April 26th (1,192), we increased the TG Discord by 144 members. Our target is 2000+ people on Discord within 12 months.
 
We do not have an easy means of tracking BC stats/actual members into TG per month, CoC vacancies, etc. at this time. We are committed to growing what we track and reporting these metrics to the community. This will ensure transparency and allow us to drive toward goals together as a community. 
 
4: Looking for Tactical Warfare Corp Commander Applicants
Over the course of the next few weeks we will be reviewing applications for Tactical Warfare Corps Commander. SS+ may apply. We will review applications, interview the top applicants, and select new CCs.

Sony and Discord Integration

Gamers who frequently use Discord know how annoying it is that it hasn’t been brought to console yet... but it looks like it is heading that way very soon! 
 
Sony recently announced that they have paired up with Discord to integrate it into the consoles and make it compatible with their mobile app as well! After investing in the company, they now own a small share. They intend to work on optimizing it, and are heading for an official release early next year, according to Sony’s statement.
 
Discord has partnered with Microsoft before, but it only gave us the ability to link our accounts and let friends see what we are currently playing. Being able to have an app and actually communicate through it on PlayStation will be very exciting! This partnership didn’t exactly give us lots of details, but hopefully as they continue to work on it, they can start releasing some!
 
With Sony and their current communication, they have left some to the imagination! Many people are excited to see the integration, and hopefully this can improve on their current system. Even though the newer systems have improved on the original methods, there is always more room to improve. Discord is not only easier to use, but it is used daily by hundreds of millions of people a month, between mobile and PC, and soon hopefully PlayStation!
 
 In the coming months, be on the lookout for more details from Sony and Discord! I look forward to seeing how they integrate the two systems!

Red Dawn (CP) enters their debut season well above (CP) standards. They have shown immense growth following the incorporation of grizzled veterans from the previous Crimson Shogun squad. Red Dawn shows consistency to improvement, a strong resume in match history, and a desire to compete in outside tournaments as they have entered the Call of Duty Rec League's Season 4 in the Gold League. Red Dawn will be one to watch as their ceiling of ability is tremendous.

The Dethroning of the LEC's Powerhouse Teams

Riot had its first League of Legends European Championship in the Spring of 2013. This saw eight teams competing against each other including big Esport names like Fnatic and SK Gaming. Fnatic ended up winning that first split and in the years to come, we would see Fnatic win another 7 European Championships. We would only see two other teams win the LEC, those teams being Alliance and G2 Esports. Alliance won one split back in 2014, whereas G2 Esports has claimed 8 European Championship wins. This makes them the team with the most championships in Europe. Although G2 only began to compete in the LEC in the 2016 spring split they rapidly rose to the top with their unique playstyle. G2 Esports won the first split that they competed in along with winning the following three splits until they were beaten in the 2018 spring split by Fnatic. For the seven years that the LEC has been running, it has been dominated by these two powerhouse teams until this year.
 

  
In the 2021 Spring split we saw G2 Esports end the split tied for first place with Rogue both having a record of 14W-4L. G2 Esports claimed first place in the end due to beating Rogue twice in the regular split. The other 4 teams that ended up making playoffs were Mad Lions in 3rd place, with a record of 10W-8L, Schalke 04 in 4th place, with a record of 9W-9L, Fnatic in 5th place, with a record of 9W-9L and lastly SK Gaming, with a record of 8W-10L. G2 Esport’s first round was against the fourth seeded team Schalke 04. Schalke almost won the series in spectacular fashion with a reverse sweep (coming back from a 2-0 deficit). G2 was able to clinch the series in Game 5 moving on to the Upper Bracket Final which would secure them a spot in the Grand Finals. On the other side of the Upper Bracket we would see Mad Lions face Rogue in what seemed like a clear win for Rogue. Mad Lions had other plans for Rogue though, winning the series 3-1 and securing the other spot in the Upper Bracket Finals against G2. Meanwhile Fnatic was competing for a spot in the Grand Finals through the Lower Bracket. They won the first round against SK Gaming 3-1 in a commanding fashion. In the second round of the Lower Bracket, Fnatic would be coming up against Schalke. Schalke proved to be too much of a challenge, sweeping Fnatic 3-0 and ending their 2021 spring split. In the third round of the Lower Bracket we saw Schalke and Rogue, the original losers of the Upper Bracket matches, compete to play against the loser of the Upper Bracket Final. The Upper Bracket Final would see Mad Lions facing G2 Esports. At this point, G2 Esports were still the favorites to win this series. In the Lower Bracket Rogue would beat Schalke 3-1 to make it to the Lower Bracket Finals, where to everyone’s surprise, they would be facing G2. G2 had not been able to beat Mad Lions in the Upper Bracket Finals, being absolutely dominated 3-1. To make things worse for G2 they ended the Spring split 2021 losing the Lower Bracket Finals 3-1. Rogue controlled the entire series outclassing G2 in almost every manner.
 

  
At this point now the League European Championship would be seeing a new champion for the first time since the Spring split in 2016. Of course, this was when G2 Esports beat Origen to become an exclusive member of the European Championship holders club. At the time this exclusive club only had two other members. The Grand Finals began with Rogue dominating the first two games with better team comps. This allowed them to easily win the first two games of the series. This meant that Mad Lions needed to try something different and try a riskier comp which would allow them to snowball harder if they did get ahead. They decided to give Armut, their top laner, one of his better picks, the Monkey King himself, Wukong. This pick ended up being one of the turning points for Mad Lions. Mad Lions proceeded to win both the third and fourth game bringing the series to a draw. Either team could still win the 2021 Spring Split and join the ranks of G2, Fnatic and Alliance as European Championship winners. It all came down to the final Game of the series, Game 5.
 
Game 5 of the series saw a lot of standard bans. Rogue looked to ban out Carzzy, Mad Lion’s ADC, banning Seraphine, Jinx and Ezreal in their first rotation. Mad Lions opted to ban out Trymbi’s playmaking supports banning Thresh and Rell. As for their third ban, they chose to ban out Orianna, a standard third ban on Red Side. Rogue, having first pick, decided to pick up the Udyr. This ensured that they had a strong early jungle presence having a jungler with both a  quick clear speed and a lot of early ganking potential. Both teams ended up picking both jungle and bot lane in the first three picks which is quite standard. The next bans for Mad Lions were Lucian and Tristana. This was to ensure that Larssen, Rogue's mid laner, would not be placed on a comfort pick that allows him to comfortably have lane priority in that mid lane. Rogue, on the other hand, decided to ban the Wukong after an incredible performance by Armut in both Games 3 and 4. Their fifth ban was Twisted Fate. This made a lot of sense due to Mad Lions having the first pick after the second ban rotation. Rogue did not want to allow Mad Lions to obtain Twisted Fate with the global presence that he possesses. At the end of the draft phase we see Rogue having opted into a team with a lot of global pressure with champions like the Ryze, Tahm Kench and the Senna. We see Mad Lions opting into a more team fight/dive orientated team comp with the likes of Gnar, Volibear, Viktor, Kai’sa and Rakan.
 
We saw the game begin with Mad Lions overcommitting on first blood onto Odoamne, Rogue’s top laner. Although they get the kill both Inspired, Rogue’s jungler, and Larssen are able to respond quickly and clean up the fight, killing both Armut and Elyoya, Mad Lion’s jungler. We saw Rogue in control of the early game with good map rotations and a good focus on objectives. It was all going well until the 26th minute. At this point, Rogue had taken down 4 of Mad Lions’ turrets along with three dragons meaning they were on soul point for the next drake as well as having built quite a hefty 7k gold lead. The game began to turn around when Mad Lions decided to engage a 4 vs 3 in the 26th minute in the mid lane. This immediately turned into a 5 vs 5 with the missing members from both teams teleporting in. This fight saw Humanoid, Mad Lions’ mid laner, pick up a massive triple kill. Rogue, by contrast, was only able to kill Mad Lions' bot lane. This allowed for Mad Lions to begin to bring back the gold deficit that had been built up by Rogue throughout the early game. 7 minutes later we would see both teams pushing the Baron pit with Elyoya beginning the baron for Mad Lions. Mad Lions however instantly turned their attention to Inspired catching him out. This was then followed up by a Flash Ult from Armut's Mega Gnar,  knocking both Larssen and Trymbi into the wall and securing the kills for Mad Lions. This was the final nail in the coffin for Rogue with the rest of the members falling shortly after. Mad Lions had pulled off the reverse sweep and joined the exclusive club of European Championship winners.
 

  
In the next article, we will be looking to analyze in-depth the downfall of both Fnatic and G2 Esports as well as looking at the potential future of the LEC with teams like Rogue and Mad Lions exceeding expectations as well as taking a look at Schalke 04 which did manage to pull off some upsets in both the regular split and playoffs!
