Hi Dingo, I will provide some feedback on my thoughts:
Firstly I will start with the platoons, we currently have a number of platoons with players who either are idle or don't seem to be playing any more, the suggestions from me and others are to refresh clans.
Yes this is true we do have a number of "Public platoons"
but only one UwG official member platoon
. I could be wrong, and I hope Don corrects me if I am, but I think the other platoons, i.e. Alpha, Beta, Charlie, Delta are all PUBLIC platoons which are used as initial points of contact for potential new members to meet and greet
with existing members of the clan as well as demonstrate their intention to graduate to a full UwG member eventually. Unfortunately, and perhaps thankfully, not all of these members make the transition to becoming a full member due to failing to meet clan entry requirments
These platoons are used purely for recruitment purposes and don't actually mean anything in terms of divisions of the clan. This does not necessarily have to be done on battlelog since it is an internal clan organisational matter. What I suggest is to integrate your ideas into Don's existing framework structure - that is create a UwG group within the battlefield ecosystem (BF3/BF4) that is designed to take on clan opponents in a competitive manner
. So for example if we had 10 individuals wanting to be in the competitive group we just list them in a new stickied thread
and it can be updated accordingly for new members and remove people that are either inactive for an extended period of time.
In addition to this a new subsection on the forums should be created for members of this group mentioned previously.
Yea we need to get the infrastructure ready and who is reliable for games at a pre-determined time
Clan matches- there has been lots of talk about this, every player who has been active over the last couple of weeks are wanting clan matches to happen obviously we are holding back a little bit at the moment as we need to get as many players together and do some squad play first, that way once we have set squads we can enter clan matches with a plan.
. When we have that
organised then we can begin talking tactics and strategies with that group. There is no point in having a group tactics discussion until we have the
group together - otherwise we will be repeating everything to every new person added to the group which is fine when you get a new member once a month or so to the competitive side but not 10 people in Week one.
Sorry for the long-winded post, and I do agree with the points Dingo and BlackEMP have said. I think maybe an internal approach of documenting our groups is perhaps better though as we don't need battlelog to make our platoons, we can just make a thread here like I said.
Cheers for taking the time to read,
