  1. Hello

    Welcome to TAG! Yeah, as Deadmeat says we’re far more active on our Discord and have a small but dedicated group of PC gamers playing Overwatch and Destiny 2 (not sure on division).
  2. Destiny Clan

    Ask @SithWarrior or @studknckl for an invite into the PS4 clan. I recommend hopping on our Discord and checking out the Discord channel as the response from either of those dudes will be faster there.
  3. Official TAG Reddit

    It costs us nothing, but it looks even more dead than our actual forums, and therefore makes us look deader-er. We have thousands of registered members on these forums. We have (last I checked) 34 subscribers on the subbreddit. And we can’t point a domain to it, so we then have yet another different location not directly attached to a domain for discussions. So, for someone to be fully connected to everyone in the community, they’d have to check out multiple locations, including the main website particularly if they are new, and that is a lot of work. And yeah, of course no one person makes the call. That’s why we’re having this discussion! I’m just chiming in, providing my personal opinion, as is Hustler.
  4. Fortnite anyone?

    I have this on xbox. Not just battle royale but the full shebang.
  5. Official TAG Reddit

    I do agree with that, and I've not been happy that reddit has taken the place of many forums. Like 4chan, it is the definition of Mob Rule and seems every year the outrage levels and vigilantism of its more dedicated userbase becomes more ridiculous. That, and every year the top posts in every subreddit become more stupid. I think Discord and a simple website that explains our brand is fine at this point. You can't make everyone happy, and as I understand it, the desire for having a website PLUS Discord PLUS Subreddit is to appease those who don't like the fact Discord conversations move so fast, but if our forums are dead, maintaining a subreddit will only shift the deathly silence from our official forums to our subreddit. Now, if we could still point our domain to a subreddit and use that as a homepage that would be different. But we can't, so I do agree with Hustler on this. Let's not split the brand. Keep it simple.
  6. Does anyone play Fortnite?

    I have it too but I am in the same boat as Havoc - I am pretty terrible at surviving any encounter with an enemy player in it.
  7. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    I mean, it's possible things could change in the industry, but my cynicism says it'd need more than just an outcry against one game to do that. COD WW2 could use a similar response with many of the epic, heroic, and legendary weapons being locked behind lootboxes but the fanbase there says it's not the same because they're just weapons, not hero classes. EVE-Online fanbase says skill injectors for characters are not the same because it doesn't guarantee winning, thus it's not really pay-to-win. I think the better course of action might be for gamers to write to their senators and congressmen about their concern of this being "online gambling", which is illegal for many states, but then that'd introduce government regulation into game development which I know quite a few wouldn't be a fan of.
  8. Back after a year+ away

    Welcome back!
  9. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    BF2 is not even close to the most egregious example of loot boxes. Not even close. Look to games published from companies in China and South Korea for that. This isn't something new that's happened in the gaming industry but has been around (and accepted by certain sectors of gaming, namely sports, digital TCG, MMOs, MOBAs, and mobile) for a long time now. It only is perceived this way because it's being done with a beloved, long-standing IP with an audience (FPS gamers) that hasn't yet been slowly conditioned to accept this behavior as the norm. The reason why this happened is because it's already been an accepted norm in other areas of gaming and because it's been more profitable than the actual boxed games sales by an incredible margin, which means that to game publishers and shareholders, gamers have already voted with their wallets on spending money on loot boxes. If that hadn't been the case, this whole scenario would have never happened. Companies don't like taking risks with well-established, super-popular franchises first - they save that experimentation for other things. And sadly, anything European legislative bodies do will have zero effect on us here in the states, just like all their antitrust legislation and consumer advocate policies bare no weight on companies here.
  10. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    I caved when they waved the white flag in temporary truce and disabled microtransactions until a further time period. The campaign is utterly amazing and brilliant. I have not been this happy playing a Star Wars game since the Jedi Knight/KOTOR days. They put a LOT of hard work and lore love into this.
  11. Call of Duty WWII

    We should totally go old school and start some D&D TAG groups. Those don't have loot boxes or server issues.
  12. Call of Duty WWII

    Nope. It's still terrible. Last night I was immediately disconnected from the servers as soon as I tried to launch the multiplayer portion of the game.
  13. Been a long time

    Welcome back! Friend request sent from rubyroids. :)
  14. Any Dead by Daylight players out there??

    Hit up @Ghost Touched on either Xbox or PC!
  15. Call of Duty WWII

    Sweet! You both should receive requests from "rubyroids" - I'm definitely a "core" person compared to the hardcore crowd, haha.
  16. Call of Duty WWII

    I've been enjoying it so far. Some big names voice acting the Zombies (Ving Rhames, David Tennant, etc) - definitely want to do that with taggers! Multiplayer mode WAR reminds me of old school Return to Castle Wolfenstein/Enemy Territory gameplay. Campaign feels solid. Only put two hours into it but I'm liking it a lot!
  17. Call of Duty WWII

    This is arriving in my mailbox tomorrow. Excited to at least play the campaign.
  18. TAG Night Highlights

    That is totally Randy Savage channeling The Offspring.
  19. Xbox One X Standard Edition Pre-Orders LIVE

    I will probably be picking one of these bad boys up for the holidays as I have decided to not upgrade my PC any further for gaming purposes.
  20. Thank you @hybridhavoc for that sweet new TAG logo (and variations of it)! For those not on our Discord, Havoc came up with it in what seemed like no time at all this morning and it looks truly fabulous. Great job!
  21. Thanks for that sweet logo Havoc!

    ...aaaaaaand a special edition bookend of a division agent with his butt glued to the words "get off the fucking wall" and a matching set piece of a division agent lying face-down on the word "jesus". Get them now from the soon to open TAG Etsy store!
  22. Thanks for that sweet logo Havoc!

    How about a 3D printed resin statue of two spartans standing over the new TAG logo as if it were the ground, one tea-bagging the other? We can have the an optional helmetless anime girls in bikini spartan armor instead for @SithWarrior.
  23. Skorched00

    Welcome to TAG! I'm almost certain I've seen/played with you somewhere but could be mistaken! Glad to have you here!
  24. Introductions are for new members.

    Welcome to TAG! We have an exceptional PS4 Destiny group who I'm sure you've already hooked up with. You've come to the right place! Be sure to hit up our Discord too as our Destiny channel is HOT.
