ArmA Wargames / An Open Letter to AW and new members
« on: January 07, 2015, 05:31:31 pm »
Hey everyone. I just wanted to say a few words about the past couple of weeks and what has been going through my mind as we all make a this transition to a new gametype. 
     Firstly, I have always been drawn to the large scale TvT gameplay throughout my entire gaming life.  Starting way back with IC and Joint Ops.  My love of military shooters made ARMA a no brainer and ever since Ihave always been trying to take part in and contribute to the communities that feel the same as I do about the TvT teamwork experience. 

    That enthusiasm for TvT and teamwork, has led me to this point.  When returning to AW late last year, I was bummed that it had fallen off in numbers so dramatically.  It wasnt just AW, all the other TvT camapigns have closed their doors due to lack of participation.  I sat on the sidelines and thought about this for awhile.  I began to play TacBF again also about the same time I rejoined AW.  This was also a struggling community but it was fairing slightly better than AW.  A few times I would mention suggestions on the TacBF and AW forums about things that might help the community gain new blood.  And was met several times with "good idea, why dont YOU do that".  At the time I just said to myself.  "well Im not on the team so its not MY job".  A few weeks went by with that attitude until one day I realized.  This is a small community and if I want it to grow, than in fact it IS my job to do something. 

   So I started talking to the two communities to put together a coalition of sorts to help this,  the genre of gaming I love, get back on the map.  Many of you have understood what I am trying to do and are on board, whilst others arent as receptive.  I understand the misgivings of some, citing FPS issues and other gameplay related dislikes.  To them I only ask, give this partnership a shot.  I dont know what the future will hold for AW or TacBF, but what I do know is that the combination of the two has some serious potential to be incredibly fun and satisfying. As well as to potential to make both communities much better, technically and moral-wise.
    I'm not in the tank for a certian mod, or even community.  I just want to share my joy for this TvT genre with as many likeminded gamers out there, of which, I think there are more than we think, they just lack the knowledge of this place and this partnership. 

   All that being said, I'm bummed I cant be at this weeks battle due to real life Military commitments, but thats why I need all of you to go just a little farther to make this work.  Try and introduce just one person to our Community, set up one training session with your new squad or team.  Generals, make an all call announcemetn to your new army and set the attitude right now.  Come up with a battle plan like we used to do. 

    This is going to take all of us to make it big.  We have to "Think big to be big!!"   SO get out there and talk it up!  Get in there and team work it out! 

   I appreciate those that have given me/this community a chance, I promise I will do everything I can to make it the best experience I know we can have!!  Without you new players, this is nothing, so I welcome and thank you for your interest, and emplore you to take it to the max!!! 

   Finally, thank you guys for having me in the AW/TacBFcommunity.  It's an honor and a joy to play along side you guys.  You are my friends and my teammates. 

See you on the battlefield!!

This is a great tourney but man, we have GOT to get some more players in.  Were basically on life support.  DO you guys think its worth it to go around in public Wasteland games to recruit?  OR should we go after clans and other communities?
