Overwatch Division- February Newsletter

Unfortunately, it looks like we are going to have to wait even longer for OW2. It looks like it will not make its debut in 2021. For more information go here.
Blizzconline is still scheduled for February 19-20th though and is a free event!
 

 
 Check out January’s MAR for all of the promotions in rank and positions! Congratulations to all of you!
Demon Squad (CP) is still competing in the CGL Tournament. The current season is quickly coming to an end though! Let's go Demon Squad!
 

 
The following members have reached these milestones as Squad Staff:
 6 months: @OakOwner & @CrispyTotz
Congratulations! Keep up the great work in your squads!
 

 
RareCosmicPepe came to the OW Division about four months ago. He joined our PC 1st bat squad and since then was XO and is now our DO! Pepe plays OW on both PC and PS4. 
I recently sat down with him and asked him a few questions so we could get to know our amazing leader a little bit better!
 
Squared: "What is one fun fact about you?"
Pepe: "I used to be a professional flying trapeze artist in Japan."
Squared: " I have seen some of these videos, and it is truly impressive! I don't know how you could do it. I would be terrified!"
 
Squared: "What are your favorite video games?"
Pepe: "Overwatch (obviously), Valorant, Apex, Dota Underlords."
 
Squared: "If you were to compare yourself to any OW hero who would it be and why?"
Pepe: "Mercyyyyy - she’s very much support. Always flying from person to person offering help when they need it and giving them a boost when they need it to finish the task at hand. Reviving so their teammates can capitalize on a missed opportunity.
Squared: "I can see you as a Mercy too! The flying part- you have lots of experience from when you were a trapeze artist, and you are also super helpful to anyone that you see needs it!"
 
Squared: "What is your vision for the OW Division?"
Pepe: "I would love to see us grow! We already are one of the best divisions TG has to offer, but I know we can continue to grow and become a bigger family!"
Squared: "I'm here to support you in this endeavor! We have an amazing group of folks here already!"
 
Squared: " Are you glad that I stepped down, and as far as OW division goes I'm no longer your boss?"
Pepe: "No. To be honest, I did not want to be DO. I wanted to work under you until I left TG, but you're off to bigger, better things and I felt equipped to handle the role. I love what I do, but you left some big shoes to fill and I can only hope I can do so. ☺️
Squared: "Awww Pepe! To be honest, I can still wear kid shoes, so I'm not sure how big the shoes are that you found to fill!  You have done great things thus far, and I'm excited to see what happens in the future with you as our leader!"

Calling all USEC and BEAR

Escape from Tarkov, one of the most in depth and ambitious “Looter Shooters” to date, is officially making a comeback within Tactical Gaming. This is a hardcore FPS made by Battlestate Games.
 
Under the Command of TypicalVeteran-, who joined TG back in 2016, the EFT Division is aiming to be the pride and joy of TG.
 
Escape from Tarkov is a challenging game to get into. With unforgivable AI, no HUD, extremely detailed weapons and ammunition, expansive maps, and RPG mechanics. EFT has a learning curve that some may view as un-learnable. 
 
With the challenge, comes limitless potential to be rewarding. Escape from Tarkov is the perfect game for TG. The Teamwork alone is perfect for like-minded gamers like us, but the possibility to learn, teach, and overcome the learning curve is what makes playing EFT with squad members that much more rewarding. 
 
If you enjoy Battlefield, PUBG, or Warzone- it's time to elevate your potential here in TG, it's time to band together and own Tarkov. 
 
Anyone who is interested in being a squad member for EFT, please don't hesitate to contact @Typicalveteran- or @TGxMcshaxx for more information.

TG Roll of Honor

TG has a Roll of Honor that is updated yearly to showcase the successes achieved by our squads in the competition scene. In 2020, five entries were added to it; all of which came from our Call of Duty Division!
 
Sabre (ST) Squad competed in the Gamebattles Warzone Team NA Spring 2020 and placed 44th out of 6,105 teams!
 
Werewolf (CP) Squad competed in the Gamebattles Warzone Team NA Summer 2020 and placed 13th out of 2,722 teams! This led to them making it to the Playoffs!
 
Jutland (CP) Squad competed in the Gamebattles Cold War Team NA Tournament three times in 2020. In the Spring they placed 167th out of 14,388 teams, in the Summer 112th out of 7,230 teams, and their last tournament of 2020 was in the Fall Season where they placed 286th out of 13,177 teams!
 
These are some amazing achievements! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to TG! Looking forward to seeing many more squads from not just Call of Duty, but other games as well on this Roll of Honor in 2021!
 
Please help me congratulate Sabre (ST), Jutland (CP), and Werewolf (CP) on their accomplishments from last year!
 

Somethings You Say Live That You Can't Take Back

Hey TG,

So... something happened on the TG Twitch Channel between @Senile Sarge and @TG-AMP! 

Here is the story so far...

On Sunday, the 10th of January, Call of Duty had an Officers Q&A Livestream with @TG-AMP, @TG Badmoon, and @TG-xPapa_Copiax

Senile Sarge asked a couple of questions aimed at taunting TG-AMP:
 "Who's the best player in Call of Duty? (1v1 me bro??)" & "Why do my skills for Call of Duty far outweigh that of TG-Amp? (asking for a friend)" (Click the quotes to hear the clips from the CoD Q&A Stream.)
 
Then, after hearing TG-AMP's reply... on the TG Twitch Channel, Senile Sarge replied...

TG Fitness Challenges

Tactical Gaming is happy to offer a fitness discord channel in our TG Public Discord along with some fitness challenges on our TG site thanks to a few of our members! In TG, our primary focus is gaming and having fun; however, it is important for us to also take care of our bodies and minds. Taking time out of one’s day to focus on fitness can help with both!
 
Especially at the beginning of the year, many people make resolutions to lose weight, get in better shape, be healthier, eat more vegetables, be more physically active, etc. Doing these healthier activities on your own can often feel daunting and impossible, but when you join a challenge group it is usually a little easier and more fun. People can help motivate you, provide you with tips and tricks, hold you accountable and so much more. This is what some of the members of TG are hoping to bring to the community!
 
@krojakhas started the first of many weekly challenges. The first challenge is for pushups... I do not know about you, but personally I do not like doing them! This challenge has 3 different tiers and based on where you would rate yourself physically is which tier you should aim for. For the pushups challenge the tiers are Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. By the end of the week the goal is to be doing at least 4 pushups in a row (Beginner Tier) and up to 15 pushups in a row, take a rest, and then doing 15 more (Advanced Tier). I don’t know about you guys, but my personal goal is to be somewhere between those two levels by the end of the week! Krojak said, “These challenges are to get people moving and into fitness and wellness, build strength and muscle, burn fat, and accomplish something that you didn't think you could do.” Krojak’s challenges are meant to be added on to one another. We are starting with pushups, but in the future we can expect to add squats, burpees, planks, and more to the current pushups challenge.
 
@Eiwitgod has also started a weekly challenge for us which focuses on the abs! There is a list of YouTube videos that will show you different exercises that will help you develop your abs. Looking at the people in the thumbnails for these videos, may seem intimidating, but remember the important thing is to TRY! The first time you may not be able to keep up with the trainer. You may only be able to do 5-10% of what they are doing, but that’s okay! Do what you can, and don’t give up! Eiwitgod stated, “Abs are trained during a workout and made in the kitchen!”. It is important to not just do the ab workouts, but also ensure that you are having a calorie deficient.
 
There is much more to come for those interested in fitness! We can expect some videos from Krojak and hopefully others, full workouts, weight training (with free weights/body weight), nutrition information, personal success stories, and wellness.
 
I believe TG Krojak said it best when he stated, “With the great community of like-minded gamers in TG, the more that get into fitness and wellness to improve their health and lifestyle - the longer they will live and without major health problems. That will enable us to keep playing with like-minded gamers for years.”
 
Special thanks to @TG-AMP for suggesting this as a Discord channel. His vision for the channel was to create a place "For all physical activities, running, swimming, jumping, picking heavy stuff up, competitions and recent successes, share your passion here and find like-minded fitness junkies".
 
Personally, I am looking forward to these challenges, to the sweat, and even the tears! Who is with us?

Mass Effect Legendary

BioWare my old friend you have done it again!
 
Now, this flew slightly under the radar back in November when it was announced, but BioWare has cheekily been working on a new project... well an old project, but still. I am aware there are several fans out there of BioWare's journey into the stars which was the Mass Effect Franchise spanning a trilogy of games, and then its stand alone game based in the universe that was Andromeda.
 

 
You may also remember a group of games called Dragons Age. If you have played either of these collections you will know that BioWare has a habit of not just creating a story, or a simple cinematic experience to follow through. But also a saga of lore, backstory, and possibilities. (No-one mention Anthem here please.) Now, I like to re-watch films and replay games, and Mass Effect Legendary has given us that chance with an up-to-date skin and flesh hacked out by their teams of developers.
 
Legendary is not just a remastered version of the original trilogy, but a masterwork version optimized for 4K ultra display and the newest generation of consoles. The original story included within it as well as promotional weapons and armor types. Now, this part of the article is difficult due to a lack of information available, and the premise that the game shall be the same as the originals in most of it's aspects. Also it is hard to write without revealing any spoilers, so I will have to move on a little bit.
 
The original game took us through an epic adventure that explored planets, introduced us to new races, and through the codex it gave us a rich and full background into the ever evolving world around you. Choosing your destination, your ground team, your loadout, and a flurry of abilities to learn and develop you move through the galaxy to investigate the dangerous threat that the black of space have in store for you while protecting the ones you meet, the ones you may fall in love with, and the fate of every organic life in the galaxy.
 

 
Now, with our limited knowledge we can also confirm that a new Mass Effect game all together is on the distant horizon as well as a new Dragons Age game, but they are expected sometime around 2023.
 
Watch the following trailer and get ready to see the universe through the eyes of Shepard, once again when the legendary edition drops sometime this Spring.
