For as long as I've been here, we've rarely played with other outfits. We did ION and played with 903rd a couple of times, but I never remember seeing too many people reaching out to us to play. It's kind of depressing how isolated we were in comparison. I want to be more a part of the Emerald community. I've been playing with other outfits the past couple of days, making friends. Most people don't even have any idea of how to get in touch with us, and myself them. I want us to be the outfit that not only meets the original goal of being one of the best on VS, but also being in awesome standing with outfits we fight every day. How awesome is it to best some dude that you know, or from an outfit we've played with and to have them send a friendly tell. That sort of sportsmanship and camaraderie makes me moist. I don't expect you guys to go out and start making friends, but remember that every one of you is a representative of NNG. If there's a group you want to play with, go right ahead. Don't get caught up with having to play with us. Now if we're having ops or practices I would hope your first priority when it comes to scheduled events is to us. If we're just messing around or don't have anything going on, play with other groups if you want to.* Play on a different faction if you want to. I'm trying to pave the way for us to show up in most outfit's teamspeak's with a "HEEEEEEEEEYYYYY! IT'S NNG! COME PLAY WITH US!" It's getting depressing in our small group when there's only a handful in channel. While we're trying to recruit more people and that will fix in time, I want to let people in. So most groups that I've played with so far has been given an invite to pop in and play with us on VS sometime, or throw us an invite to play on other factions. Please welcome them with open arms, hopefully they'll bring us some fun that I think we've been missing. I certainly had a blast myself tonight. *I may get a little salty if you snub us too often to play with another group though, just as an FYI.
