18 and under? Name and Tag TBD

Discussion in 'Connery (US West)' started by Mkgrider23, May 17, 2014.

    Hello all,

    This post will be focused on an outfit specifically for the 18 and under crowd, so you might want to just stop here.

    For those that are still here i'm gonna assume you're either 18 or under or just plain interested in what I've got to say.


    Edit#1: The website should be up pretty soon ( within the next 2 days) as the founding members have began to vote on the name. Once the name is set the website will be made and then linked. If anyone might know someone that they've had to decline from their outfit, go ahead and either give me their name or link them to this page, as they might still be in need of an outfit. Thanks!
    I'm going to use the word kids a lot. In this case kids will mean 13 and up considering this game is rated T for teen ;). Feel free to post below if you have suggestions on how this should be ran.

    Edit#2 The website is now up. the minors.enjin.com go ahead and apply.

    The first things first. There's a lot of outfits out there. There are some good ones, some decent, ones and some not so good ones. One thing that is pretty much universal for all of the "good" ones is that they have a 18 and up requirement. This is usually to weed out the immature kiddos, which is totally understandable, but i'd like to believe that there are lots of good players that don't meet this requirement yet. There are also a lot of kids that are mature enough to be in an organized outfit, but they get shut down fairly quickly from the weeding out process. I can understand having this requirement but I think exceptions can and should be made, so thats what im going to do.

    A quick note: The two names I have in mind are "[TM] (Kinda shocked this one doesn't seem to be taken) The Minors" and "[UED] Underaged" .

    This outfit will be on the CONNERY server ( connery new meta).

    Officers will be determined from the first group to join. The requirements will be listed on the website once we get off to the running, but there will definitely be room for leadership.
    About this outfit:

    This outfit will be for teenagers. I may look to open it up to College students in the future, but I doubt to many people will be thrilled to play with such a young crowd other than ourselves.This outfit will be infantry based ( meaning that the main focus will be infantry) but there will of course be times were we pull tanks and fly ( I'm and amateur pilot myself) We will be there to hold down points and flank the Commies/Scientists. There WILL be organization. If you can't follow orders to a T then this won't be the outfit for you. The best way to have organization is through communication. Mic's will NOT be required, but they will be HEAVILY advised upon. The outfit shouldn't be too big as I doubt there are that many gamers in my target playerbase, but a platoon's worth is good enough. The outfit will be a testament to how good minors can be. Our community will be strong and we will be competitive. This outfit will be strict during our op times, but have no fear. We will of course have fun during non ops times and share many lols.

    There will be 2 things that will be grounds for an immediate ban.

    1) Disrespect of another member: TKing on purpose, Using derogatory words as insults ( i'm not talking about calling someone a noob after they crash during a training or something, i'm thinking about calling someone bad because of their) K/D.

    2) Disrespecting another outfit: This is pretty obviously wrong. There are a few outfits that have some players that talk trash. This won't be one of them. Being kids will already be enough to make people dislike us, but no one's going to want you talking **** about them being bad or stupid. Have some respect ( not to mention this will more than likely be a showing of you being immature).

    As of now there's no outside communications program (Teamspeak,Mumble,etc) but in the future there will be.

    Public squads will be ran for recruitment purposes so if you're interested pop in and check it out.


    1) Mature
    2) Teenager
    3)BR 25+ ( can easily be worked around)
    4)Mic (can easily be worked around)

    5) Application on website

    Special Events:

    There will be a few special events that I think will make the community tight. The first will be a meeting with all the newbies. This is for all the new members to get assimilated to the outfit. Stories will be shared. Laughs will be had. And bonds will be made.

    There will also be the usual OP's nights. Times for ops nights will need to be determined but ops will more than likely take place on saturdays/sundays as the weeks will more than likely involve our lives outside of gamine.We will meet up in a warpgate for OP's night and have a brief chat before loading up in gals and head to our objectives.


    Test will be fairly simple in concept. There will only be 2 and only of these test will be acceptance related. One will be a maturity test. This is simply to do the "weeding out" process correctly and fairly. You will be put in a squad with members of the outfit as well as me. (when officers are made they will be in charge of this) You will play with us for a couple of days and we will see how mature you are. Can you follow orders? Do you talk over leaders? Can you be asked to be quiet and follow through with that?

    The other test will be an experience test. Do you know how to enter buildings properly? Do you use cover properly? Do you pile into doorways or remain on the outside? This test will NOT change your acceptance. It will be more useful to figure out what type of trainings that will be had. Speaking of which....


    As of now trainings will be every other Saturday starting hopefully around 4 and ending around 5:30( though this is very tentative) They will have one focus and the ending will be some live practice of this focus. For example, we might focus on communication one day and work on calling out targets properly and knowing what has priority and what doesn't. We would then move to the live server and try this out in a actual combat.

    Contacting Me:

    You can find me in game at Mkgrider23. Interest in the outfit can be shown by simply posting below. There will be a website after the founding members are together and the name is chosen. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Good Luck MkGrider even if some people don't appreciate what you're doing it's still a solid idea, only time will tell how successful it can be.

    I was just thinking about creating a character on NC in order to get the full faction spectrum, along with the full server spectrum when it comes to US servers. Other than the BR25+ requirement, I meet every single requirement. Also, for the trainings, are the times in US Eastern Standard Time (EST)? And I will assume that the trainings will be held on PTS until we do live practice of the skills we learn, am I right? If somebody in the outfit could get back to me on this, that'd be great. Also, a link to the outfit's site would be appreciated. Also, I may experience more lag on Connery than I am on Waterson/Mattherson because I think I live closer to where Mattherson/Waterson are based than where Connery is based. Also, I'm awake and at home for 7 hours every weekday, and 14 hours per day on weekends, so you kind of get the idea of my play schedule.
  7. Mkgrider23

    Yes, absolutely true. Thanks.
  8. Mkgrider23

    First off I'm glad that your thinking about playing NC. The BR requirement can be waived, so don't worry about that. The trainings will be setup for PST, though I'll do my best to make the times work for everyone. The trainings would more than likely be held in VR training, and then we'd move from there to live. I believe that your ping might be higher on Connery, but it should still be playable. The website won't be setup until I get 5 people with interest. As of now I have 3 including yourself. This is just because I will need the outfit name to make a website and as of now I don't have that (we need to vote). But if you need anything you can still post here for the time being.
  9. GantryPengy380

    So it sounds like the trainings will be from 6-7:30 PM in my timezone. That would kind of work for me, though I always eat dinner around 6. If those times stick, I will be on the entire time, though AFK for short, five minute periods while I'm eating.
  10. Mkgrider23

    That's perfectly fine. We will get those details ironed out and possibly move it a little earlier but only time will tell.
  11. Mkgrider23

    Correction, I just realized that we do actually have five people, i'm going to PM you on the PS2 forums a link to a strawpoll, go ahead and click it and vote.
  12. OdinsPride

    I think your tag should be [SQEK]

    Just a thought. Good luck!
  13. Mkgrider23

    Thanks. Not to sure what SQEK is but Google said it's "Squatting European Kollective" which doesn't make sense to me haha.
  14. GantryPengy380

    Already voted on the poll, and you said that you were going to create a WEBSITE (I was thinking like Enjin or some other way to make a site, idk) but instead you just made a poll on the name/tag? Oh well.

    EDIT: I created my NC char about an hour ago, and have done pretty well so far. I made it to BR4 by doing a bunch of reviving as a Medic, and was able to get 2 kills in as well.

    Wow, really? Greentext?
  16. OdinsPride

    SQEK.......as in, sounds like Squeek. As in the shorthand for young gamers. As in the thing you're basing your outfit around.

    It's funny I promise
  17. Mkgrider23

    Yeah I'll give you that. It's funny, but that's not what we need. It's going to be hard enough to get people to take us seriously without having a troll tag.
  18. Jzilla330

    This sounds like a great idea. I, along with many other players, are under the age of 18 and cannot find a half-decent outfit to join, I can't wait to sign up.

    Do we get any candy from a non-descript 1980s Dodge van or play new video games in a basement?
