Showing appreciation - @kMaN
It's always a good thing to see when community members go out of their way to show appreciation for a staff member who has gone above and beyond the duties of their roles. That's what @Servok did in the community feedback forum in a thread aptly named "kMaN you a Fucking Great Cunt".
kMaN joined us as part of the BSO merger back in Oct 2018 since then he has been the keeper of the boxes, the restarter of the servers, and the go-to guy when something just isn't quite working right. kMaN responds to any request or question with immediate action. We are blessed to have this man be a part of FK Gaming and are thrilled to call him a part of our Staff. Thank you for all you do kMaN!

Team Lead/2IC changes
Since getting his role as Squad Lead Trainer @Monocled Badger has been busy at work updating the training guides. In his article "Team Leader Tag & Process Changes" he states:
"As a result of the modern template being 10-man with 2 fire-teams, the old 2IC tag was grandfathered into the Team Lead role. However after discussions with members of the community and the other Squad Lead trainers, there is a concern that the grandfathering and conception of the 2IC role does not fit the current role of a Team Leader - additionally there is often confusion of what the Team Lead role exactly does and their place in the Squad due to the grandfathering/conflating it with the 2IC role that previously existed.
We seek to remedy this by two methods.
- Publish Material on the role and responsibilities of a Team Leader
- Change the evaluation process for Team Leader Tags and slightly alter Squad Leader Tag acquisition as a result."
Regardless of your interest in team leading or squad leading please take a moment to read through these articles as it will effect every squad member. "

CSAR Tags have been removed
After months of discussions, the Medical Training Team has decided to do away with CSAR Tags. With CSAR missions being few and far between, and the role requiring no more medical knowledge than that of a medic tag holder- the time has come to retire the tag. The new slotting procedure for CSAR missions will proceed as follows:
The leader of the CSAR group:
- Medical and leadership tags (both at the same time)
- Medical tags
- Regular CSAR team members will be slotted as medics
If you have any questions about the CSAR procedures, or Medical Training in general please visit the FK Medical Training Discord.
