Draft of RSI Post
Hi

Me and a couple of the regular flyers  have been working on this for a bit and I think we are at the point for general comment from other Forkers before going "public" over on RSI. My intent is to let folk comment few a few days then post it before the weekend in a separate thread. Please feel free to shoot holes in it (Pun intended :P)  


"War Games - Operation Pitchfork Invitational"

TL/DR
We fly together most nights and had some pretty awesome fights against other orgs/groups, but mostly it has been by chance. That being the case we are organizing Org vs. Org contests in the BPU. You can dogfight, FPS or whatever against us in pre-arranged matches with an agreed rule set or we will help arrange matches with other orgs. One of our goals is to blow CR's mind with player generated content; this seems like a pretty good first step :P

Ok that out of the way.
Background
For those who don't know about Operation Pitchfork go here:

.....

Ok now you're back (I hope you didn't read the whole 1200+ pages of the thread☺). As you can see we are a large player based event made up of thousands of pilots from hundreds of member orgs of all sizes and from every alignment. Pitchfork is about being a backer, not Pirate /Bounty Hunter/Merchant/Whatever. There is a relatively small group (3 -12) of us that fly together nightly starting around 8Pm EST (some are from the EU so up late). We go to post Kareah and throw down a challenge (My version below - LOL)

Good Evening, members of Operation Pitchfork have taken control of the space around Security Post Kareah. All save level 5 criminals are welcome to land and grab a weapon. We will not open fire without cause and will do our best to prevent harm to any ship landed. Anyone wishing a 1V1 dogfight ask first before firing, we will be happy to take anyone on. Come in guns blazing we will assume you want all of us :P Everyone is free to join us on discord https://discord.gg/0khMm8QaHUmR8btK


What the heck we are trying to do here?

Pretty simple. We want to get better flying/fighting together and have fun doing it. We have had some pretty amazing fights and we would like to have that happen more often. Some have been orgs that are actually part of Pitchfork. Reason I point that out is we want no animosity with anyone or any group. We are not an org in a traditional sense and with the state of the game there isn't going to be all that much at stake or non-player generated content. So why not generate some of own? Most of our goals are more community related and this I think will help get our community closer (with laser fire too, who would have thunk). And truth be known I have hopes that many of the participants would be disposed to join us for a certain "suicide mission" at the end of the Beta ☺ What you want to live forever?

Nuts and Bolts
We have gotten pretty good at getting all of our members in one instance and have had as many as I think 12 in one instance. So while I think it might take a bit of work I can see getting 16 or 20 folks from two teams in one instance without a huge problem. You have to admit 10 V 10 furball would be pretty cool....
Voice communications - we can provide a private room to anyone without a Discord/Teamspeak/mumble Server on our discord server. This is not limited to just orgs, but any group who wants to fight with or against us. Also we would be happy to act as a go between for orgs wanting to fight someone besides us.
Rules - to be pre-arranged. XvX or FFA. I will say FFA without near equal numbers turns into a beat down.
Bottom line - this is something we can work out pretty easily
So come join our war games and freak out CR a bit

Looks good, but don't TL;DRs usually go at the end of a post? Also I personally would put your version of the challenge in the Nuts and Bots section and keep the background section limited to a general description of Pitchfork and the event itself.

"Unleash teh Kracken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Let the games begin! Thanks Sailor67 Nice to see the Verse livening up like the fourth of July!
When we did the first one my main concern was innocent gamers getting smacked! We did have a few "innocents" pop in during first event we had about 20 ships and a few guys running around in Koreah! Moar! See you guys in the Verse!

I kind of look at the TL/DR is the "hook" to get folks to read more. Think of it as a 15 second sales pitch, in RW speech it would be an executive summary.

Background isn't about Pitchfork so much  as to how we got here. I also wanted to make sure it was clear what we were/are doing in the BPU to this point. Not greifing, etc.

People would probably ignore you, as most do not perceive the Aurora to be a legitimate threat. Because of this, you could be a great support ship; throw 4 mass drivers on and deal a lot of damage before people take notice. Plus it is hard to hit an Aurora and they tend to be pretty tanky.

Maybe. I haven't had a lot of practice in dogfighting so I still might not be very useful. I would love to try though.

Don't Know Xeriar, your version is better written than mine, but the edits feel a bit too formal. That just may be my POV on heck life, I prefer informality in most things. Anyone else want to chime in? What parts should we keep throw out or edit?

The web stuff is cool, the only thing I would change on those is YouTube links. I like seeing the screen shot that is displayed in the post and we have something besides a WOT.

I understand what you're saying. I think it's fine. If you want it to be more casual than it is, you could model it after your original post:

Hey guys,

I am playing around with an idea and I want your feedback. Right now I flying in the BPU is great but unless there is a bunch of action it can get boring. I think we have developed something of a reputation ;)

The thing we did with Legacy was pretty darn epic, and I would like to get those kinds of battles on a regular basis. But I wanted to get some feedback of the "regulars" (note I am limited in the number of folks I can pm at once so others not being included was a function of me remembering how to spell your handle :p)

I am thinking of starting a new thread "The Operation Pitchfork Org battle matrix" or some such (I need to think about the title more) where we set up regular matches between orgs but not only against us but each other as well. We would act as liaisons as well as combatants

Besides having more fun, the primary goals are two fold, first is to take the action we have in the BPU up a notch, second is to start building the relationships with other orgs for the main op.

Secondary goals are to get better flying as a unit figure out tactics that work.

I am still working out the how and what details and wanted to get your ideas about before we go public. Plus I want to know if you think it is a good idea or not. You and the other regulars will get the brunt of if it works. If you don't like it I will table it for now.

What do you think?

We want to get better flying/fighting together and have fun doing it. We have had some pretty amazing fights and we would like to have that happen more often.

Some have been orgs that are actually part of Pitchfork - we want no animosity with anyone or any group. Simply, there is not much at stake, and rather little non-player generated content at the moment.

So we generate some of our own. Most of our goals are more community related, and I think this will help bring our community closer (with laser fire).

Obviously, I have hopes that many of the participants would be disposed to join us for a certain "suicide mission" at the end of the beta. What you want to live forever?

Nuts and Bolts

We have gotten pretty good at getting all of our members in one instance, and have had as many as 12 in one instance. So while I think it might take a bit of work, I can see getting 16 or 20 folks from two teams in one instance without a huge problem. You have to admit 10v10 furball would be pretty cool....

Again, this is not limited to our orgs, but any group who wants to fight with or against us. We would also be happy to act as a go between for orgs wanting to fight someone besides us.

Rules - to be pre-arranged. XvX or FFA. FFA without near equal numbers turns into a beat down.

So come join our war games and freak out CR a bit
