In preparation for the release of LotV we have brought our ships into the drydock for retrofit and repair. In the meantime we need to select new officers to run the ships when we relaunch them on Nov 10th.

We will be selecting new Captains by means of a competition. Any officers is eligible to compete for a Captain slot, any non officer may apply for warrant officer training so as to become eligible to compete. Officers with prior command experience will be given preference.

We are not announcing the number of ships and therefore the number of slots available at this time. Captains will be ranked and selected based on their number of earned points in the competition. If you're first in points you are guaranteed a spot, if you're fifth its unlikely unless we gain a *lot* of new members.

After ship relaunch Captain selection and staff promotion will go back to our regular methodology.

There are several ways to earn points.

First up is recruitment. Every new private you recruit gains you a point. No points are garnered for cadets that do not progress to privates so remember to recruit quality personnel. This is a great way to rack up a *lot* of points.

Second is events. Simple events earn you one point. An example of this would be something like an arcade night. Large and/or complex events earn you five points. An example of this would be something like Yachtmaster's recent September Cup.

Third, streaming a clanwar or other event is worth 1 point. Streaming particularly long or complex event may earn 2 points at managements discretion.

Fifth, casting and uploading 2 games for our youtube channel is worth 1 point. If two candidates are casting together both get a point. Chobo games, clanwar replays, inhouse tournaments or even good showmatches are places to find replays to cast.

Finally, special acts of service to The Confederation not listed above will be awarded points based on merit.

Any officer at the time the competition begins starts with 1 point. Any officer with prior command experience at the commander level starts off with 2 points. Prior Captains and Vice Admirals start with 3 points. Members with command experience above the UMC level start with 5 points.

All points will be kept track of right here in this thread. If you've earned a point, reply to this thread and the parent post will be updated with your current score.

I hope that this competition will help us to select the most active, dedicated and experienced officers to lead our ships when we relaunch. The competition will close Saturday November 7th to give our new Captains time to organize their ships prior to the official launch on Nov 10th.

I encourage any officer who is interested to come and compete for a position. Please declare your intention to compete for Captain by replying to this thread. If you're not an officer yet but want to compete see our admirals Tyrael and Boo for training to become eligible.

Good Luck!

After much thought, i have decided it would be best if i stay in retirement. Too many good candidates who deserve a chance to serve The Confederation, and the United Military Command. Good luck to all and have fun.

Good job guys, recruitment is looking good. For those that win the competition I would suggest training any officers on your ship and explain how you recruited so many people so fast, then go on to teach them the techniques you implemented in this competition.

While the points have been increasing as soon as this event came out the threads on the officer forum have completely stopped. While individual effort is great, it doesn't always last. If it did we wouldn't be here in the first place. Our communication isn't always there, our ideas are rushed through without complete thought. Points only matter until the end of the competition. I think we really need to step up our teamwork and collaboration.

Just to be clear because this is shorter than what I normally write (because I am tired and want to go to bed). This is not pointed at anyone nor is it putting me above others stating to do it my way. It is just something I noticed and if we were all to become Captains/Commanders it will be all of our problems.

Thats a good point Shazam. I worked hard to get the Captains forum opened to the officers as an officers forum. Its there for your benefit and to help coordinated efforts on the management side of the clan. My recommendation (As I am no longer FA, its not an order) is to take advantage of the tools that have been put in place for you by myself and others, take pride in the fact you are an officer of this great clan and get involved.

Withdrawing my entrance to this competition; As my IRL is getting busier and once these new ships are worked out I may not even be on SC2 much at all.

Guys it has been almost a week since a post here about having gotten a new recruit. Don't stop!

Flamer, you're three recruits away from overtaking Shazam. Nobody is out of this race yet so don't give up and don't get cocky...



I'm announcing a new prize, holder of the most points gets first pick of ship and his Commander. Ship picks and crew picks will proceed according to points.
