Darkfire Company - NC Tactical-Casual Gaming Outfit Overview: Darkfire Company was founded in late September of 2006 on the ideas of respect, teamwork, and loyalty. At the start, our goal was to become one of the best jack-of-all-trades outfits and be known for our coordination. While that is still important to us, over the past seven years of service in PlanetSide we have become a family friendly and semi-casual crew. As we recruited players we considered to be of great quality our values evolved around them to what they are today. Our tactics developed with each new recruit as well. In DFC, everyone has a voice. Something to note is that when things get hot we adhere to a chain of command and try to organize our coms systems accordingly. This is because it’s a lot easier to coordinate effectively when people aren’t competing to speak. Some might call us paramilitary, but really we just like to play smart. Darkfire is a small group, but we are ready to expand. When you join DFC, it is for life. You will never find another unit like us in any game. Our Goals in PlanetSide 2: Our goal in PlanetSide 2 is to expand the outfit and become a respected member of the community. Of course, above all else, our goal is to enjoy the game through a mix of tactical and casual gameplay! From our Members: “Darkfire Company is my home on the battlefield.” –Comron; Lt. Commander, 5yr Member “DFC is a unique group of players that I have never seen anywhere else in my gaming experience. We are a group of friends who enjoy playing together and performing as an awesome team. Where we go, results happen.” -Spartan12; Corporal, 5yr Member “DFC is more than just a "squad". DFC members are my teammates and also my family. I know I can trust a DFC brother or sister in and out of the gaming community. On-top of that, our organization and leadership makes us a force to be reckoned with.” -BlueIceFlame; Master Sergeant, 5yr Member "DFC is more than just people I play a game with, they are part of my family." -MamaBear444; Communications Officer, 6yr Member What others think of us: “Darkfire Company is one of those New Conglomerate outfits that I saw persist throughout the years, not just in name but in practice. Every time I saw DFC, they were doing something to further the goals of the New Conglomerate. Their members are dedicated and fun people, and I have had the joy of playing alongside them for years, both in their squads and running combined outfit operations. Their players have a strong PlanetSide history and DFC’s leadership is more than adequate for fostering a devoted yet enjoyable gaming atmosphere. I definitely recommend DFC to anyone seeking an outfit that will get things done, yet not forget the purpose of playing video games – enjoyment.” –MasterChief097; Outfit Leader of The Fighting 27th, PlanetSide Beta-PlanetSide 2 The Darkfire Values; Respect: First and foremost, respect is important to us and the respect that you will find in every member of DFC is unmatched. That doesn’t mean we expect to hear yes sir and no sir every time you’re asked to do something. What it does mean is that you are expected to respect not only members of the outfit, but every member of the gaming community as a whole. This respect is not just a courtesy, it is also tactically important. We respect the abilities of our opponents. If you fail to acknowledge the enemy’s skill you set yourself up for failure. So overall, all forms of respect are a part of who we are; the respect of our friendships, the respect of our teammates, and the respect of our adversaries. Teamwork: We are a team and a family. Working together is a huge part of what makes us successful as an outfit. Yes, we have our ups and downs but we go through them together. Teamwork in DFC also means finding the strengths of our members and putting them to use. You will not be required to put away your sniper rifle if you’re a good infiltrator, we will find you a place in our operation that suites your skills. Our coordination and cooperation is what holds us together, we do our best to discipline ourselves in this practice. Loyalty: Loyalty to each other and our cause is not something to be overlooked. Many of us have been playing together for years and have explored other games together. We are also fiercely loyal to our cause, in this case as New Conglomerate soldiers. Individuals wanting to join Darkfire Company should be sure that they are true-blue NC. The veterans in the outfit have been fighting the TR and VS for up to 10 years and that is not about to change. Loyalty to each other is even more important than loyalty to the cause; we do our best to be there for each other. This applies both in and out of game. For us, this is our second family and we will support and protect it. About the Recruitment Process: If you have decided DFC is for you, please post below and send GoldDragon a PM with some basic information about yourself. If it does not appear that you have an active interest in joining then your request will be set aside. Once you have requested membership, you will be invited to our squad in-game for a trial period (anywhere from 1-2 weeks with possible exceptions) in which we’ll find out if you match the kind of player we want to recruit. After your trial period you will either receive an invite or be directed to an outfit we feel you are better suited for. I look forward to serving with all of you NC and fighting all of you TR and VS.
