That's right folks, TAW turns 13 years old today!
Happy Birthday big guy, before you know it you'll be getting your drivers license!
I am proud to announce that the VG Staff and Army Command have brought in Loadout to Vanguard. Tazmanian, who has done an excellent job spinning up World of Warplanes, is now back in Vanguard as the LO SUL. This is a free to play game and would like to get the ball rolling as fast as possible on this. We are currently looking for DI's for the NA and EU Battalions. If you are interested in this, please contact Tazmanian, IceDogg, or any of the VG Staff for more information. Here is a link to the game's site. http://www.loadout.com/game-info/
Vanguard is pleased to announce upcoming spin-up meetings for Wildstar and War of the Vikings.
Both meetings will be held this Saturday (March 8th) in the Vanguard Spin-Up Meeting channel.
The Wildstar (WS) meeting will be held at 19:30 GMT (1:30pm CST).
The War of the Vikings (WV) meeting will take place immediately after at 20:30 GMT (2:30pm CST).
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Anyone that can't make it and has some questions can contact VG staff.
Starting today, Friday, February 28th, 2014, we will be doing live streams from inside The Elder Scrolls Online. There will be no content limitation. We will be streaming everything from Level 1 to Endgame:
We will be streaming from the OS Streaming Lounge, if you see a stream in progress, please follow the channel instructions for the temporary ESO channel that will be listed.
Please come out and join us in our planned events. If you need a beta key for this weekend, here are some links for giveaways, also we probably will have a few on hand:
For more information, you can contact the following TAW members:
Come join in on a Q&A session for the exciting sequel to the popular melee combat game War of the Vikings. Wednesday, February 19th, 2014 @ 2000 GMT/1500 EST their will be a representative from Paradox Interactive the publishing company on to our TeamSpeak in order to discuss the game with us and answer any questions that arise.
EDIT: The audio recording for the Q&A can be downloaded here.
All those who where in attendance have been awarded a Vikings Q&A event tab on their Dossier page.
After a very successful beta weekend, the beta servers are about to go down. For those of you that got to try out the game, we hope that you enjoyed it.
If anyone wishes to know more about the game, feel free to contact ESO members. We have been informed that the NDA for levels 1-15 PVE has been lowered, so we are able to share video and images of this range.
For those of you asking about transfers. The ESO Division is currently open to internal transfers, the process is to contact your CoC for the transfer, each Division may handle it slightly different, but your best bet is to always go to the person above you, they will direct you to the correct person within your Division. Keep in mind that you will want to try to have a history of good attendance, as that is reviewed during a transfer request. Without giving too much information, we have a system in the ESO Division that will allow any new members to take part in Division events, regardless of your beta status.
Thank you to everyone that joined us for the weekend, it was great getting to know some new faces, feel free to visit us at anytime!
The Elder Scrolls Online
I would like to keep this tournament simple. Do not want a lot of rules or regulations set in place. This should only take 1-2 hours to complete depending on the amount of people that sign up. If need to be it can be over a 2 day tournament if needed for the amount of signups. This game is in Open BETA and anyone that creates a battle.net account can download and play it for free.
This will be a 1v1 tournament. EU players will play against EU and NA will play against NA players. This will be 1v1 elimination. There will be 1 winner for EU and 1 winner for NA.
1. Each person must add their opponent to their friends list. (This is how you challenge each other.) I will organize this.
2. You must use a premade deck. You cannot use your own cards you have obtained by crafting or buying packs. NO EXPERT DECKS! YOU CANNOT EDIT YOUR DECK, MUST USE DEFAULT DECKS. This is to keep fair gaming throughout the tournament.
3. Once you are eliminated report to Tournament Host to update the bracket.
4. Maintain proper TS communication.
5. CoE and Policy enforced at all times.
6. Have Fun!
First Place - NA - Silver Star
Second Place - NA - Bronze Star
First Place - EU - Silver Star
Second Place - EU - Bronze Star
Every attendee will receive a Special Designed Hearthstone Tab to add to their Dossier.
Sunday, February 16, 2014 - 2000GMT
Please accept the invitation sent to your email once you have been added into the bracket.
Bracket will be randomly generated for the matchups the day of the Tournament.
Vanguard is pleased to announce there will be a spin up meeting for Star Citizen.
It will be held this Saturday at 20:00 GMT in the Vanguard spin up channel.
Everyone is welcome.
Anyone that cant make it that has questions can contact the VG staff.
Spin up meetings have now been set for both Titanfall and Wildstar for this Saturday.
Anyone interested in either of these games is more than welcome to attend.
The meetings will be held in the Spin Up channel in Vanguard.

Titanfall - SUL Grim - Meeting 20:00 to 20:30 GMT
Wildstar - SUL Incogneato - Meeting 20:30 to 21:00 GMT
After a lot of careful consideration it has been decided to give Warframe a second chance.
As such we will be looking for a couple of SOs and DIs.
Anyone interested should contact the VG staff for more information.
Vanguard welcome Titanfall and Wildstar to its ranks as the newest horizon teams.
As horizon teams they will not be open for general transfers although a few will be allowed to cover SO and DI postions.
Any questions or queries regarding either of these games should be directed to Grim for Titanfall and Incogneato for Wildstar.
In the next week or so spin up meetings will be set for both of these games.
Due to the interest in Elder Scrolls Online, Vanguard is pleased to announce it has now been moved over to a full spin up team.
As such it is now general transfers. Anyone interested in transfering should contact their CoC.
For any other queries or questions regard Elder Scrolls Online, please contact Shindig who is the Spin Up Leader.
Ladies and gentleman, TAW is now trying for the 2nd time to spin up World of Warplanes and I would like to ask for your assistance.
Those of you who don't play the game and has Razer gaming equipment the support the "Synapse 2.0" function with a valid username and password for that system, you can get a code for a free premium aircraft.
We could hand it out to new members to help them get an edge in game and help TAW build up it's name in the game.
So if any of you has Razer equipment and is willing to help us spin up this division, please go to this address : http://www.razerzone.com/worldofwarplanes/ , log in with your "Synapse 2.0" account and please post the code to this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1j6TjZiykfWuiENjQgAYnH_1QaEupJrJHGyoIY1rAJVY/viewform
(the results can only be viewed bu the command staff and I personally promise these codes will NOT be handed out to people who are not TAW members who are part of the spin-up).
Thank you from all out hearts,
1st LT davsank,
World of Warplanes Division, 2nd EU "Viken" Battalion, Executive Officer.
