I agree with you Shades but even TR and Vanu are playing almost like been in a server smash only using smaller forces of it like litery nothing can stop them enless it s over population by 1 faction or getting on their lvl which indeed is nearly impossible for us but not if we talk it out with other NC outfits cause that s what they ve done as well. If we can t make it out like that we should atleast consider this as future decisions for the outfit
The TR and Vanu as respective majorities are definitely not playing at server smash levels on live. Although there is a kernel of truth to this statement, as (at the moment, anyways) there are a greater number of active leetfits on both the TR and VS than on the NC.
We already do have a group within VCO that focuses on high speed, server smash styled gameplay (The Ron Paul Rangers Academy
), although it certainly won't be becoming our main focus anytime soon, as we've traditionally been the one of the best new player orienting and training outfits and are sort of expected by the greater community to keep that up. Like DarkShades
said, what we provide right now is invaluable for retaining population in this game and providing stability.
Granted, an outfit which runs a whole platoon at server smash levels every Ops would be hella awesome, but again, it would burn all of our leads straight the fuck out very quickly. It would be a glorious few months of asskicking, that's for sure, but what's the point if it kills the entire outfit in the long run? Shoot, we even have history of it being attempted and causing the predicted results.
I'd highly suggest applying for our leadership corps, as the absolute best way to see any change of that magnitude in this outfit is to make it happen yourself. I know for a fact that myself and many others would be more than happy to take on a new lead who's looking to help us on our combat effectiveness - after successfully completing the squad leader certification process
, definitely look into becoming an RPR certified lead. That's the environment which will teach you how to make the kind of things you're looking to see happen.
