Hello Escapist Soldiers!

This will be our updating thread on our WAR against BoingBoing and Rock Paper Shotgun. Ideas are more than welcome, but first, a few things.

In order to download, the easiest way I've seen is to download the Beta Launcher here: http://launcher.station.sony.com/. Download the game and you should be good to roll.

For those of you who have played before, please HELP the ones that haven't. This is a community builder and we are here to help each other out. Tips and tricks are always welcome. Dividing into fire groups, also helpful. BUT overall, BE HELPFUL not hurtful.

We will be putting up a Mumble server tomorrow. I will post the information here so everyone will be able to log in and talk if they like. Yes, Mumble is free and very easy to use.

If you have any ideas, questions, comments, etc, feel free to put them here.

LOCK and LOAD...it's WAR!

---------------------
Important info:

1) Escapists should be playing Terran Republic
2) Join our Outfit, The Escapist when you get in game. Thanks, Docan [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/profiles/view/Docan]!
3) Easier to read thread with tips & tricks is <a target=_blank href=http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/9.83949>here. Thanks, AntiAntagonist [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/profiles/view/AntiAntagonist]!

4) Here is the VOIP info:

Go here to download Mumble: http://mumble.sf.net

See here for an example. [http://underhanded.org/mumble.jpg]

So, will there be a list of who was recruited?

[edit:] Nevermind, I think I figured it out. If you have The Escapist "War" badge then you made the cut.

I don't feel too bad about that since I was hesitant to apply to the competition. However, I'm willing to cover ya if somebody drops out.

Still downloading the client off the interwebs. When that's done you'll be the first to know.

I plan on forming a small squad of Escapists as soon as possible to act as a quick and specialized rapid response force/special ops team to counter whatever RPS and BoingBoing have up their sleeves. If your interested in joining this small squad (which will be called "The Ghosts") please PM me with a request. We'll be needing a small group of people with a broad range of different abilities if we're going to be as kick ass as I want us to be.

Downloading now, should be able to start today. Got injured playing basketball last night, so took off work today haha... oops!

Last time I saw your message Vanguard it was called "Ghost Squad", but whatever name is a name, still sounds bad ass. I am interested but I never played this so I'll have to see what sort of role I will be able to fill first, maybe give me a couple of days and we'll see.

EDIT: nevermind, you changed the name again

ESCAPIST: Sound off!


Also, if you didn't get your key, but you got a badge, PM me please.

For those of you that got a key, what form did it come in? Email, PM, contest page, etc?

I haven't touched the game since they merged two of the servers and wiped all inactive accounts. Only played when they gave all the old players a free month.

Should hop on again just for the heck of it. Download ahoy.

Downloading...

I take it it would be a good idea to get Teamspeak installed while I'm at it?

#edit: the key came in an Email.

Oh well, I guess I didn't get in, for now. Should someone break one of the guidelines you set forth how would you go about picking a replacement?

Yeah, I flipped a coin to choose the squad name. This way Ghost Squad is also a tribute to the Tanith First and Only, which is arguably the most bad-ass group of soldiers of all time.

*ahem* Anyway figuring out the whole character system shouldn't be too hard. I'd say everyone will probably have found their own niche by the end of the day.

I'm here, ready to do some stuff.
Well, actually can't start today, should be able to tomorrow though.
Though my badge is currently lost in the post so I can't show my allegiance just yet.

I would probably randomly pick again, but from those that would like to be on the list...say from this forum thread. :)

Did your badge not come through yet? Make sure you check your badges...could just be hanging out at the bottom.
