It’s Clyde, your new 3ic. I’m here to say my input on where this army stands, but first, let me tell you about myself. I started my career in CP armies with the Fire Warriors. For a few months, I was low-ranked. Then the name changed occurred, and it was no longer a nice small army I enjoyed. So I quit and joined some small armies, most of which died immediately. On March 2nd, 2011, I joined the Global Defenders. I quickly rose through the ranks into the highest mod rank, and stayed there for most of my GD experience. Recently, I was promoted to 3ic. Enough about me, now onto the rant.
GD, I remembered how proud I was to say that I was in the Global Defenders. This army was great. So I ask you, what happened? We started falling when Pungy went on vacation. We shouldn’t need him to be around 24/7 to keep us active. Members, Mods, Owners, all of you, It’s time to take responsibility and rise again. So this is what I think should happen.
Instead of making goals to be #1 and have 60+ active troops and all that, we need to focus on getting out of this hole we’re stuck in. Instead of trying to be #1 right away, lets set smaller goals. For example:
- Have 30 active troops
- Average 20-25 at all events
- Get #1 in the SMAC medium top ten consistently
We can’t rely on inspiring speeches to get active troops. We need to focus on getting active right here, right now. C’mon GD, I know we can rise to our former glory. If Jack or any other leader approves of this post, I’m sorry, it needs to be said. Comment what you think needs to be done- Tactic Sessions? Recruiting Sessions? Please, if you think it will help, comment.
Sorry for lack of words and pictures, but I wanted to get right to the point.
