    It was awesome. Smile

    I would like to have a more regular schedule. For example 2 days a week, if it is possible. To give also the chance to other members to join, if for any reason they cannot attend one.

    Was great fun, testing out our dps in a group. Would say I second the request for more, but understand if not possible

    Even if I was unable to participate, I'd like to point a few things for the new members:
    1. DPS measurement should be done with players that usually parse around your average or slightly better. Running with 150-200k ers that vape the main ISA targets will yield lower results because you have no time to aim and fire at something.

    2. Your main goal is to keep firing, so make sure you always switch between targets as soon as your target has under 8% hp or less. Go to the next one. Chaining kills is optimal for a better dps than siege attacking large targets and ignore the rest.

    3. Optimize your skill chaining also. Learn what is a good sequence to make sure your firing cycles are running with the proper buffs on.

    4. Coordinate with your teammates - especially for common buffs (tac/eng/sci/int fleet) and stay in touch with support buffs and heals where available.

    Yup; true.

    Or perhaps, like all things power is in the #'s, and who supports whom, like in Leadership or Diplomacy.

    I loved it, it was really fun trying out the new HSE! I had a lot of fun playing the DPS and Science wizard role Big Grin!!

    Also that REDACTED run where the REDACTED handed us REDACTED.

    Overall I really liked the format, but it would be nice to have a central discussion place for all things related to Special Forces, perhaps a new forum section?

    **Moderator Note:**
    Reminder to specifically use this thread for giving feedback based on yesterday's runs and not "help & tips". This is purely a feedback thread.

    ----

    I have some feedback myself on the run;

    I think the key to Elite runs is trained commanders as well. I think all team commanders should be well seasoned regardless of Staff Status as well, just putting it out there. Also, promising commanders or people wanting to commanders should also have more runs and knowledge about exactly the mechanics (esp. in Elite).

    Overall I feel this was an awesome start. I really enjoyed myself and I also wish to see this taken to the next level. We had an amazing turn-up and one of them was also from our armada fleet, Guardian of Democracy. I also hope we have some members from yesterday's runs step up as Team Commanders.

    Been awhile we had this level of activity on our teamspeak!
