PostSubject: TFB September 2014 Raid Event Notice    September 5th 2014, 8:58 pm

Ok Zoar, I'll step in for this one >>> here we go for the September 2014 Raid Event!

ArrowThe Team Fug Bug (TFB) Official Charter

Important Tips:  Be very clear when you post what squad you want to join (plus the less movement between squads the better for me and logistics).  You will also want to be sure to list your forum ID, In-game ID and invite code.  Also make sure you are not at 50/50 for allies.  The current theory is that if you are 50/50, you will not show up in the search results.  Clear some room and do your out-of-event ally invites early before the event starts.  Plus if you can't find a player’s name, search previous TFB events listed here on the forum and you might find them with a different IGN.  Once the event does start, send your requests and be patient.  Don't Panic after 10 minutes and accept some unknown player’s request.  Give your squadmates ~24 hours to accept before trying to find a replacement.

I think I'll farm this time, but I could go for L again if a few other people are in.

Hmm ...

Inserting a post from Daedhead to spur some discussion and feedback:

DaedHead8 wrote:
I think TFB in its current incarnation has had an amazing run. We went from being a top 250 team, to regularly placing all 6 squad members in the top 100, to winning Lethals. And because of our amazing success, I think it may be time to revise the charter. Especially since the majority of the people who join our squads these days have been asking for it for awhile now.

Now, my idea is to have more squads than we will fill up every event. Basically every event have a squad for Lethals, top 100, top 250 and top 500. Since all the squads won't fill up, everyone will just move up spaces when the event starts until the squads are full from Lethal down. I don't think it's worth it to sort by geography anymore, since we rarely fill up two entire squads and it's just extra work.

Thoughts? This setup means we would have 4 standing squads, and for Raid the "farm then attack" folks would likely fit within the 3rd group (the top 250 set).

Ready to make the shift gang?

This means Daedhead drops to Gamma & Amerame drops to Delta.

Make sense?

Thanks, hept. I like this set-up. I think it gives good delineation to the various levels of ambition among TFB members. That said, I'm not sure that there has been enough participation lately to man four separate teams, but hopefully that will change with this set-up. We should be prepared for the likelihood of needing to consolidate teams until the involvement increases.

So please put me in to Delta (with a possible bump up to Gamma if we need to close the ranks). School is back in session in New Jersey and I have an additional prep (Computer Applications) on top of my regular Physics, Chemistry and Physical Science load. I'm not exactly sure how much time I will have to play.

I like this setup (as I should, it was my idea).

And pglandis, I figured everyone would just slide upwards when the event starts in order to consolidate teams. That way the L hunters, if there are any, are at least assured a full squad if they want it.

@DaedHead8 - That sounds about right.  We will push everyone up to fill teams from top down, but each player will still only be expected to attain their original goal.  E.g. If I originally sign up for Gamma, but get pushed up to Alpha because only a few people sign up, no one will be upset that I farm for a while then cash in and play hard enough during the last couple days to end the event at 248 ranking before ally points are added.  I suppose if there is such poor interest as this, potential L hunters will just decide to save resources for a later event.

    One difficulty I foresee with this shifting procedure would be for those who get stuck with an incomplete team at the bottom after everyone is shifted up.  However, if Ronin is also included in the shift, that should leave short only players who weren't expecting to be on a team anyway.  Or perhaps some of the lower team players will readily volunteer to be held to the bottom to let others be included in a complete team.

Just thinking out loud.  What do the rest of you think?

Updated list, and Zoar, I dropped you into the "Ronin" classification since that's about what your "I tired of this *(&^%$^&$(" note about the state of FF alluded to.

If mistaken, please let me know and I'll make the appropriate adjustment.

Ronin works for me. I'll be out there somewhere lurking in the shadows. A warrior with no home. A lost spirit...ummm, enough of that. I'll probably play some in this event, and Ronin status works just fine. Thanks!

Event is live! I've accepted requests from Mark Molina and Amerame and I've sent requests to Hept, Sphynx and Wallachix. Sorry to leave you out in the cold Nottoc but you weren't already on my friends list. Good luck everybody!

@Daed - I see a little discrepancy here.  You really should have waited the 24 hour "Don't Panic" period to set up the obvious consolidated team of Wallach, Nottoc, Hept, Daed, Sphynx, and Markmolina instead of accepting Amerame's request.

So the big question now is, "What do the rest of us do?"  I am definitely sending an ally request to Nottoc to make sure he doesn't get totally excluded.  I guess I'll wait a bit to see who sends me a request after that then fill in later with non-TFB as necessary.  

Let's do this better next time.  Gotta have room for improvement, I guess.

Well dang! I was hoping that the auto-fill was going to go smoothly, but it looks like we have a kink or two.

Who's still short allies? My dance card for this raid event still has 2 slots open if anyone needs an ally (or better yet, does anyone care?).

Separately, I think we might have to re-evaluate the dynamic of "elevating" from a lower to a higher group. Any suggestions?

How about we let those in the higher performing crews pick from the crews in the lower ones? This doesn't imply anything about favoritism, planned vs. actual performance, or anything.

Some might want allies in a similar geography, past allies, or even ... non-regular TFB stars (e.g. legend, KV, fozzie, duavae, etc). At the end of the day it's all about how many points can I garner in about 7 days. AND, who can help me?

I have two slots open as well, but one will be taken if I accept an ally request from Sphynx. Since I never intended to be in the top team, I want to make sure those guys get the best allies. I am still planning to farm for a few days and then cash it all in and play when I can after the SRB's come on the scene. I expect to end up in the <300 ranking range.

@Sphynx - If you find a better ally situation, please take it. I will wait another 8 hours or so (around 11:00 EST) before I accept your request (if it's still there). Whatever is best for you is fine with me.

Sorry if I screwed things up. I just figured since it was such a small turnout this time, it would be better if every mixed and matched a bit. I think a discussion about how to handle these situations is in order, as hept suggested.

How's everyone doing so far? I'm getting a lot of farming done, maybe not as much as I absolutely could, but still quite a bit. I also just managed to MVP a SRB, so when I harvest my crops, I should get a nice bump in the rankings there.

Remember Indiana Jones? It's always better to try rather than succumb to something that might NOT be inevitable.

Rock on TFB! Wifey's all over me this event so my numbers are going to suck. Sorry guys, I should have gone Gamma or Ronin.

How did everyone end up? I think I ended around 100 or so before ally points.

I think I snagged a SRB mvp on the last sighting that added around 25% to my point total. Good stuff.

I wasn't able to get an MVP, but got JVP on a bunch of them.  Overall, I didn't get to play as much as I expected.  I was  over my ranking goal of 300 (I think it was 320) without any ally points, and I  landed at 290 overall.  I wish I had been able to do better, but I just had too much else to do. Thanks to my allies for the boost at the end.
