Hi All !
After a very hectic and busy launch, Christmas and the inevitable bit of burn out, the Archangels activity has been a bit down over the last month.. But these things happen. Gaming happens in cycles and this is nothing to worry about, we have seen it many times before in our 10 year history. All we need is something to kick start everything... and that's exactly what we are planning to do !
The devs are planning a patch to fix some of the major issues that we have with the game, it should be out by the end of the month. Tunnels between spawn rooms and bases to prevent the endless vehicle camp fest, making bases more defensible to promote more interesting battles, window nerf (making them smaller :D), HE round nerf (which we already have) and many more exciting changes !
To build up to this we will be starting our own initiative which we hope will enable the outfit to work as a more fluid, reactive and less top heavy organisation. We plan to achieve this by opening up three new specific officer positions which we hope a number of you guys will apply for ! We understand that the strongest part of our outfit is our amazing members, and if we are going to continue to grow we need to get you guys taking a much more active part in shaping and building the Archangels into an outfit that sticks out from the crowd. Dominates our enemies, and has fun doing it.
The three new officer positions are as such:
Personnel Officer: Personnel officers will be heavily involved in building and shaping the future of our outfit. An outfit/clan/guild that doesn't recruit dies, this is true in ANY mmo. Their main concerns will be recruitment, The vetting of applications and the welcoming new members. Making sure they are able to integrate with the group and basically being the go to guy for our new recruits. It will be there job to see people through their probation, successful or otherwise. They will also have a role to play in internal outfit disputes should any arise.. They don't happen often as we all get on so well though :) !
Tactical Officers: The tactical officer is an extension of the previous (and now defunct) Squad Leader role. It will consist of leading squads/platoons in game, coordinating operations nights, organizing ingame alliances with our TR brethren and all the roles previously covered by the Squad Leader position. All the previous squad leaders will inherit this new position should they wish to continue with the role. We will in addition be looking for a couple more to bolster the numbers.
Communications Officer: This is a role that's close to my heart, the communications officer is a much broader position than the other two. It consists of three main facets: News, Media and PR. Bringing Planetside related news internally to the Archangels is very important, it keeps us engages in the community, knowledgeable about the game we love which can give us the edge on the battlefield. A communications officer will also be charged with bringing news about the outfit externally.. Via all forms of modern media be it twitch, reddit, twitter, official forums, youtube, etc. This leads to the second and third roles. This can be achieved by good use of media as well as PR. As the role is pretty diverse people will obviously have different strengths in this role, which exactly what we want. People to bring their strengths to the table to help us grow as an outfit.
If any of these appeal then please head over and fill in an application for the desired role here
.. This is all our outfit, and as is commonly said over here in england.. Many hands make light work ! Lets get to work :).
