Hello everyone! With regards to the recent incident about the servers being down, they were unfortunately hit by the whole "ransomware" thing that's going around right now. Xavier is working hard to get things back up and running with that but in the meantime he called together the staff and some of the old-time veterans of the community to come up with a plan with regards to what to do next and what we want the next steps of the community to be. We have some ideas but I wanted to take the time to tell you guys about something that I fervently suggested and have been talking about for a long time with the staff. My goal with this endeavor is to bring the community closer together and to facilitate more interaction between myself and all of you, while at the same time trying to grow and expand the community. I believe the game I created our guild in has the potential to fulfill all of these objectives provided that enough of you make the commitment to step up and participate. So, without further ado let me introduce to you the latest addition to CSI: our official PlanetSide 2 outfit! What is PlanetSide 2? PlanetSide 2 is an MMOFPS developed by Daybreak Games, the same people who brought you H1Z1. It combines the elements of a first person shooter with massive maps to support as many as 300 or more players spread across 3 different and unique factions. Another key feature of the game is the squad and platoon system which allows for up to 12 players to form a full squad, or 48 players to form a full platoon, and work together to capture and defend bases spanning 4 separate maps. It is FREE on Steam to download and you can find out more by visiting the official site here Why Should You Play? Because games, especially this one, are always better with more people! The phrase "the more the merrier" could not be any more true for a game like PlanetSide. You get the satisfaction of playing with your friends while kicking ass as a whole squad working closely together with one another. With close to 900 hours of experience playing this game across almost 2 years I can say without a doubt that this is one of my favorite games, if not my most favorite, to play with others. What do You Need to do to Join the Outfit? Once you download the game, you'll want to create your first character by choosing the Vanu Sovereignty as your faction and Connery - US West as the server to play on. Once you finish the tutorial, hit P to go to the social tab and click on "Outfit." When you search for an outfit just type "cant" into the search bar and our outfit should come up. Submit an outfit application that has a short message of who you are so I know to accept you. If you don't want to do all of that or something doesn't work for whatever reason, you can simply add me in-game using the social tab so I can invite you manually. My character's name is Varme. All current members will be given the "CSI Member" rank, donators/gold players will be given the "Respected" rank, and everyone who is neither will be given the "Community Regular" rank. All three ranks have the exact same privileges within the outfit so don't fuss over what you get please ^_^ I hope that after reading this post you guys give the game a chance. I genuinely believe that we can work together to improve and expand the community and give ourselves a fresh start in a new and engaging game. As always, hit me up if you have any questions or post in the thread and I'd be more than happy to answer. I hope to see you all on the battlefields of Auraxis!
