As many of you may know by now, the founder of Core Tactical, Connorwarman, has decided that running the group is not for him and has left CT. You can read about it here if you haven’t already. We all are sad to see him go and wish him the best of luck. Semper fi buddy!
So what does this mean for the group? What does the staff have planned? Whats going to happen? Well I hope to answer all your questions here.
First, this means that as of now, CT has one NCO (Myself) and 4 wonderfully dedicated staff members (Centurion, Bullet2Head, Lt. Tom, and Waffle SS.) and that we have decided that the heavy burdens Connor had with him will be divided up between us.
As of right now, this is how we have things divided as so: (Note these are subject to change, and if changes are made they will be noted)
Ewarrior – Main group operations, tech support. Ewarrior will be the main person to run sessions and keep things going as smooth as possible.
Centurion – Webmaster, main control over forums and website. Also controls what goes on in the Teamspeak. Anything regarding the site or TS goes to him.
Bullet2Head – Main trainer, minor recruiter. Bullet will focus on training the people Tom recruits into the group.
Lt. Tom – Main recruiter, minor Trainer. Tom will focus on getting new people into the group with a minor role in the actual training process.
Waffle SS. – Waffle will continue to develop the mission frameworks and will be the main consultant on things concerning mods and scripts.
The staff are also looking to have a more transparent system for our reasoning and discussion within the group. One of the ways we are doing this is that if a user as a rank of “core” they will be allowed to be involved in staff meetings and there will be a forum that only core members and staff can post in that shows the debates and decisions we are making. Everyone will be allowed to see these posts, but non staff and non core members will not be allowed to vote on these issues. You are still welcome to speak your mind however.
We hope to not make too many changes that will upset members but we strive to have things in a way that will benefit all members. I will post more about changes and such as they arise.
I am now brought to the biggest concern of the staff: financial issues. As of right now, the server that contains all of our services (TS, Arma, etc) costs us $75 a month from NFO. This is simply not sustainable by the staff alone so our plan is to downgrade the server. Performance wise, we will see little to no difference but it still costs us about $55 a month. We enourage all those who can to donate what they can as every bit helps. Contributing to the server fund is a great way to give back and something as small as $5 goes a long way if 5+ people all do such a thing. If you wish to donate, you can do so by following this link. This money goes straight into a server “coffer” that the staff cannot touch and is only used to pay for the server. If you can, I strongly encourage you to donate what you can, to help keep your group afloat.
And with that, this is the end of my post. I hope you guys are a little more assured in our future and the continuation of the group. If you can contribute to the group in any way (Missions, videos, donations, special talents that can benefit the group, etc.) The staff would love to hear about it!
This post will be stickied for a week starting today, I encourage you guys to discuss in this thread.
