      Hi All,

      As we will encounter more and more combat in the times ahead, I was thinking of a way to organise our forces a bit better.  Since we are a very casual group, the solid squadrons will simply not work, so here is my idea.

      Flexible squadrons, where we say what the wing contains (i.e. 3x couriers, 1x Vulture), a set of roles and it gets a name (i.e.”Angels of Retaliation”), if you want to participate on the night you’re on, just make sure you fill one of the available spots and have fun.

      This way we can still assign a mission to a wing, and it can be done by whoever is available in that time.

      Would that work?  Is that too complicated?  I just like the idea of the group having a recognisable name and structure regardless of members.

      As I prefer larger ships and artillery based tactics a defensive force basically operating wherever we establish power is a very attractive idea to me Id like to create a group or 2 based on defense rather than raiding. Not to say the group shouldn’t have far more raiders than defenders or vice versa.

       

      So are you asking that each night we report in with groups and such or what are you asking for sir?

      No, we are too casual for that.  What I mean is, the CEO can assign the “defense squadron” a job for the next couple of days, then if you log in you can jump into that role if you wish. and you’ll know what to do.

      Same goes for other jobs, where we can assign an “Attack squadron” to undermine an area, then all you do is just fill in a role for the session.

      Support wings, escorts, the galaxy is your oyster.

      This way we can say we have a squadron working this area, and we know the members will take care of it, and then report in a thread the progress.   I.E.  Attack squadron thread.

      It will require me to have a mission page with the current required tasks to make it less confusing for everyone, and an easy quick check on the goals, and just jump into the game and help out.

      Definately needed, I (as always) am at Angeli service if we have a biffo, and dont mind ending up on some rival factions KoS list…

       

      Have we named the “Imperial Courier Service – going postal on the Federation since 3301” yet?

      I like the idea. Really does need a group a fighter type players in wing together and be with the mind of. Anywhere and anytime. Nothing worse than waiting for someone to get organised while you and another are waiting, with enemy’s happily ganking friendlys

      I think also, we need to start utilising the different teamspeak rooms too.  If we have a patrol squadron as it were, they need to have clear comms without the rest of us chatting.  I realise this may break up the ‘community’ feel a bit, but I do believe it is necessary.  Last night there were about 15 of us on and at times comms got disjointed with people trying to talk and accidentally interrupting each other.

      This idea sounds great. I’m always available for action.
