PostSubject: Tenatative Lance   Thu Apr 26, 2012 2:49 pm

<S> Greetings everyone.

I need everyone here to give me their general location, (U.S., European, etc) so I can start to form folks into tentative lances by their region. I want to try and make sure that folks usually have at least a few other people to play with during normal play hours.

I also need people to start to consider what sort of role they're going to try and start out as (Commander, Attacker, Defender, or Recon) so I can try to make each lance it's own stand alone force.

Ideally I'd like to try to adhere to the following structures: (Working off the concept that our company or larger force would be a sub section of the Death's Head Brigade known as "The Dogs of War", this concept subject to change if people think it's stupid or don't like it )

General Lance: 1 recon, 1 defender, 1 attacker, 1 commander (Guardian Lance)

Recon Lance: 2 Recon, 1 defender, 1 commander (Pointer Lance) - This works in tandem with Hound

Fire Lance: 1 defender, 2 attackers, 1 commander (Hound Lance) - This works in tandem with Pointer

Command Lance: 1 recon, 2 defenders, 1 commander (Shepherd Lance)

These are the general 4 man organizations that seem to make sense to me, of course there are variations on the 4 man set up that we can work on, but I'm also going to touch on a concept that few people are probably aware of.

Is anyone here familiar with what is known in battletech as a "reinforced lance"?

It's a lance consisting of not four, but six 'mechs. I want to be able to utilize this formation, as the game being a 12 on 12 format, it would help us formulate a more cohesive force with a smaller, but more focused command structure.

Here's my idea.

Reinforced Lance: 2 Recon, 3 Attackers, 1 Commander

Reinforced Lance: 1 Recon, 1 Attacker, 3 Defenders, 1 Commander

This set up gives us a balanced force, and while we don't have three commanders, we're organized to work as a full 12 man team more effectively in my view.

That's my thoughts on this matter.

Please let me know your general locales and your role preference so I can start to work on what lances are what.

Well I am PST, and I work till about 6pm unfortunately... so not sure if I will be on at this afternoon, but more later tonight. I usually have a few RL obligations right after work, but I will try to get on as soon as I can.

On a side note I was able to get all 5 of my monitor running on my new rig. Hopefully multi-monitor support will be available for MWO.
