Last night I dusted off my TR toon. I had been growing more and more frustrated with the NC on Connery since my old outfit disbanded. I had tried a few NC outfits but never really got that feeling that we were working as a team towards a common goal. So, as I said, I got out my TR toon just for a change. I hadn't really played him in quite a while... at least a month or so since I played him for any more than an hour or two. I dropped in a at warp-gate and started to look for a public platoon to join up with. I found one host by the Outfit XPIV, and dropped in. Well, colour me shocked. In I drop and am greeted by the platoon and squad leaders giving clear and precise instructions on where they wanted us and what they wanted us to do. And not just go here do that, but little things like splitting the 4 squads in half and having us assault different targets. All with overarching goals in mind: Establish a control point at location X and then branch out to buffer that zone with the surrounding zones. It may sound like nothing, but it was something I had never really seen much of in NC travels, as most platoons were just "pull armour and zerg A" kinda instructions. it was very refreshing to see leadership that knew what it wanted to do, and tried hard to get that job done. We rolled pretty hard for the time I played. Attacking and counterattacking until my game finally crashed (WTF SOE) and I had to head for bed. Hats off to all you guys in XPIV, your Outfit is first class. I am glad to have run with an Outfit that set real and attainable goals for itself beyond just zerging points for XP, and it shows me what a really organized group can do. Kinda makes me want to play my TR toon more if I can find this kinda gameplay all the time.
