Moving to Stage 2

Ace Rimmer posted Mar 29, 15  -  Planetside 2

As detailed by the below post our recruitment target was 100 people. And we hit that earlier today. So what's next? Well long story short, we run a helluva lot of closed squads (and if we do run an open squad, it'll be no less than half [SAvg] and being much more selective with invites, probably just recruit enough to replace anyone we kick), teach good habits, and either train or weed out *all* the new blood to see who's got the gear. Sound like a plan? Let's get it done.

I'll be on near every day for the next couple weeks about 7pm PST, and I would really appreciate some vets to get on and help set a good example of whats expected. In addition, there is not at this point in time any set schedule for training, it will simply be run whenever there's enough untrained guys on and it's a reasonable time, I estimate it'll take about probably a month to get through the bulk of everyone, at which point we'll move on to 'Stage 3'.

This has been tuned a bit, this is the final form of our rebuilding process, to serve as a guide of what will be happening over the next few weeks.

Stage 1 : Recruitment. We've set our recruitment target at 100 Troopers, and we're most of the way there, should only take us another week to finish this stage.

Stage 2 : Training. Paperworks already done for this don't worry. Getting the core of the Outfit Solid by running em through basic training, in addition to running mainly closed squads. Any weak sperms will also be weeded out during this process. This should only take a couple weeks. The end point of it is essentially 'have we weeded out this crop of recruits, and is the bulk of them through training'.

Stage 3 : Polishing. This is a little more open ended. We'll also open recruitment back up in this step so we can build around that solid core, but it will also see the establishment of War Games exercisies, aka the second stage of Infantry Training. Modular things to go through on VR. Essentially setting up scenario's with 2 forces of our guys facing off against each other to figure out how to behave in certain common circumstances. These will be a helluva lot of fun to go through due to their competitive nature, but will also serve as a teaching tool. Once we've got a fair handle on War Games once its all been field tested, and have a pretty good workflow sorted out, me and Fox will have a chat, and will decide to call and end to the three stage rebuilding process, at which point it will be considered a resume of normal operations.

Sound like a plan guys? Lets get it done.


ALRIGHT! Finally heard back from the domain name registrar, got the new url reserved, now just need to hear back from em to unlock it, then I can move it back over to my normal registrar with my other domains on it, and BAM, money. Can then update the sites url. Shouldn't be long now ey lads.

Also, SHOULDN'T be long after that when I can organize some email addresses for us. ace@savage.pk, shooter@savage.pk, korbin@savage.pk, don't they just have a nice ring to em ey lads. =D

Don't Freak Out Man

Don't freak out about the new theme or the change of header, long story short, its just the early stages of rebranding. Next up is to polish the look of everything, chances are most if not all of this will change before I'm done with it, and I'm also planning to get some pro work done at some point to redesign the header/logo, I'm also a long way off happy with the background/general colours/content box's/etc.

In addition I'll soon be changing the url to our new one, don't worry though, I'll set up an automatic redirect so this url takes you to the new one. I been up all night (just been testing a whole bunch of different ideas/etc) so I'm gonna go get a snack, chill for a bit, then I'm gonna check out getting the new URL ready, hopefully push through n run a squad this evening.

Alright so here's the plan, first of all, we're moving everyone over to the new outfit, holla at me for an invite if you need one. Secondly, we're going on a recruitment spree for the first time in six months (already started actually, feels good to have new faces about the place), we're getting back up to about a squad daily, should only take us a week, 2 at the most. Once we have that regular core, we're training em up (training has been updated, polished and is ready to GO, as is all grunt level paperwork), we're doubling down and polishing the fuck outta that core unit, running a heap of closed squads, once everyone's *solid* we're gonna do another recruitment spree, bust up to about squad and a half - 2 squads, then training everyone up again. Etc and so forth.

And btw, I could use some help from the Vets with recruiting, so if you wanna get on, I'll be adjusting my schedule to 6-8pm PST daily, though for the next week or so I estimate it'll stay at a 7-8 because of reasons, also things. But yo, if you wanna get on a few times, n help provide that veteran core to build around, I'd very much appreciate it.

Alright that's the grunts. Secondly, the leadership side of it, I finished all the infantry level paperwork, gonna bum rush through get up an initial version of Leadership training up n going, should only take me a week or 2, once that's done I'm gonna start working on half a dozen officer candidates and get them to a respectable level, to ensure we have consistent quality leading troops, from there on it should be fairly smooth sailing, and I'll start working on how to take those leaders a step further with a reliable system.

Thirdly, once I get leadership training done, I'm not gonna take a break from in game, but I will take a break from the paperwork side of it for a week or 2 to get some Star Citizen stuff outta the way to help Valraan out, from there on, hell, who knows.

Yippy Kay Ay Mofukka.
Ace out.
