  1. Indeed. Thank you all for the activity. Press F
  2. Someone's gotta win before it closes.
  3. The Newsletter serves you curated content from around the community. We hope you enjoy this issue! Member of the Year 2019 Award Order of the Fighter's Cross @vault1965 Citation: Vault joined the community in early 2019, as he was looking for people to play Division 2 with. Always very vocal and willing to help Vault, has grown into a valuable member of the group. Whether that was helping people farm to improve their builds, leading people through their first raids or being a reliable team mate in PvP Vault has proven himself. He has put in over 500 hours of Division 2 with the Fighting 13th, and has now also surpassed that with Destiny 2. His great sense of humor and his use of language (picked up from his adopted home) which led to some amusing and colourful outbursts make Vault, well Vault. Without doubt Vault is Rookie of the Year, let alone its Member of the Year and will go on to be a big part of the community for many years (if the old bastard doesn't die first ). Member of the Month Awards Member of the Month Award - @Klobbson (November) Despite how busy the Swedish Army Rangers have been keeping him, Klobbson was able to host various events for different games for the Pathfinders during the month of November. Well done! Member of the Month Award - @ThunderPhat (December) Thunderphat became a new member of the Senior Council, a group which gives advice and feedback to leadership on all sorts of matters. Thunderphat also willingly took on the Social Media Manager position, and has been doing an excellent job keeping our various social media accounts up to date! Job well done! Member of the Month Award - @MrPepsi (January) MrPepsi slashed and feinted his way into winning the big Medieval Mayhem Mordhau Tournament on January 11th, 2020. Aside from his alternative handle on his Great Sword, he has been active across several different games in the F13, participating in many events. Well done! Member of the Month Award - @Vultur#1460 (February) Vultur's ball handling skills are second to none in Rocket League. He helped take the RL's competitive squad to 5th place in the 3v3 Indy Gaming League Winter Circuit. A job well done and keep up the good work, Grand Champion! Member of the Month Award - @KosherHam013 (March) Kosherham has been instrumental in getting his new EFT recruits up to par. Kosherham dedicated dozens of hours a week in playing the game and now would be considered a Subject Matter Expert of the game and its various nuances. With Kosherham's help, the Vikings Division has been able to have 1-2 raiding parties pillaging the streets of Tarkov on any given night within the month of March. A job well done! PSA on the Global Coronavirus Pandemic While the world appears to be falling apart at the seams due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic, we at the Fighting 13th would like to remind everyone to stay safe. Please heed your country's/government's officials' guidelines and orders to stop the spread of this virus, and please keep an eye out on your loved ones. Life as we know it in the proverbial blink of an eye has changed as we know it. It may take months, or even a year or more, to contain and eventually eradicate this virus, but we will do it. In the meantime, if quarantine/lockdown's got you bored, be on the lookout for more events to join in on. If you are curious about updates or want to discuss the latest, we have created a #covid-19 channel just for that. And lastly, while many of your governments are taking unprecedented steps to ease the economic pain of all this, if you are in need of help, whatever it may be, please reach out. The exceptional members of this community stand by one another in times of crisis like this. Meme-Off Competition This a Discord server event which will be run twice a month, from the 1st-15th and the 16th-30th (or 31st), with a different theme each period. Rules are simple: - Submit any meme with said theme to #dank_memes channel with "Meme-Off" (So it can be found later) in the description. - First person to create/post the meme (in case there are people who post the same meme twice) gets credit. - The person with the most reactions (by different users) wins a small community award at the end of the Meme-off. Please contact @CS42R for any questions, comments, or concerns. The theme for April 1st-15th is our favorite maritime sponge and his friends : SpongeBob SquarePants The current leading meme in the Meme Off Competition as I write. Credit goes to @Dutch for this masterpiece. Social Media We still need your content to help promote this wonderful community. Screenshots, clips, videos, streams--if you produce it we can use it. Got something you want to share contact @ThunderPhat or @BillyBanter. If you want branding for you videos please contact @BillyBanter. Our Newest Division--the Rocket League Division "Air Wolves!" Introducing: The Rocket League Division "Air Wolves." Commanding Officer: @Forked Executive Officer: @Elephantagon On the December 18th, 2018, we got our first text channel in Discord dedicated to Rocket League here in F13. Some of us started spending a lot of time in the voice channels of Other Games 1 and 2 until we got our own voice channel at March 25th, 2019. We then started doing tournaments. The first tournament was the Indy gaming league summer circuit. @RJBViking, @Vultur#1460 and @Elephantagonrepresented F13 with @DenBenny and @Benny_07 as substitutes. Halfway through the season, RJBViking left for the Americas to chase his dreams (he was sadly just chased back across the pond by COVID-19) and Denbenny replaced him. They got to the play-offs but got knocked out early. Next up was the fall circuit, with Vultur, Denbenny and Elephantagon playing with @Dutch as a sub. This time around it went a lot better and they got all the way to the finals! We lost the last match, but second place is something we are all happy with. The winter circuit also went well, with the same team (with Bas00 and Wrex as subs) nearly reaching the semi finals. Some statistics from the tournaments: 86 games against 22 opponents - won most of the games. 199 goals with 131 assists, 317 saves and 643 shots on goal. And that is just the competitive side of Rocket League! We often just get together and play private matches against each others just for fun. With everyone on discord and just playing (mostly) random teams we can all have a laugh. A healthy balance of competition and casualness is the key to Rocket League Division's success and growth from a venture to full on division. Well done! Feel free to contact either @Forked or @Elephantagon- or just join one of our sessions on discord. Tactical Combat Division "Spartans" News It has been a slow few months for the games Tactical Combat Division plays. We have a partnership with 79AD and 1-505th clans for Arma events. No currently planned upcoming events, but expect some soon whether for ARMA III, Insurgency: Sandstorm, Hell Let Loose, Post Scriptum, or Mordhau. Please contact @copat149 or @cJack for more information on Tactical Combat Division news. First Person Shooter Division "Vikings" News The FPS Division will be changing its name to the "Vikings" tag. All "Red Devils" will be switched to the new tag. Escape from Tarkov recently got a big content patch bringing along some new features--the biggest one being a weight system, restricting how much your character can effectively carry out from a single game. Along with this, there were some new parts for various weapons of the game and some new armor. And, hopefully, not too far down into the future we will also be getting a new location in the streets of Tarkov, which essentially will be a huge urban combat environment located in the main city of Tarkov. Also, this patch will also include a fresh start for everyone, resetting every single player's account back to level on--a perfect time to jump into the game if you are not already a part of it! Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has added a brand new game mode called Warzone. Members seem to be enjoying Warzone more than the base game. Warzone is the Battle Royale mode in the newest Call of Duty that takes place on the map of Verdansk. Players drop in and fight their way for control over a shrinking circle, much like other Battle Royales. What's different is the Gulag, where players have an extra shot at getting back in the game on their own accord should they die early on...or they can rely on their teammates to buy them back for $4500. The mode is well crafted, original, and tons of fun--you should join us the next time you see us playing! Contact @Stixx or @Daytex for more information. World of Warships Division "Hydras" News Clan Battles happened. On the NA side, this current clan battle season was not our best showing. We made it to Gale league 1. We typically get into Storm league, but we were on the cusp of it. Considering we were down several players this season, I would say we did pretty damn good. We managed a 47% win rate over 99 battles. We did manage to upgrade our Naval Base's Steel Port which allows everyone playing clan battles and ranked battles to earn more steel. On the EU side, we managed a 54% win rate over 69 battles resulting in Gold II. For more information, please contact @Dirty Andy or @Capt_Teek Looter Shooters Division "Pathfinders" News Destiny 2 - Destiny has moved into Season of the Worthy with the return of Trials, the pinnacle PvP mode. If you like PvP and think you are pretty good it's worth jumping in with the guys and trying to go Flawless. The story of Season of the Worthy is based around saving the last city: Don't forget that since September 2019 Destiny 2 went free to play, and there is tons of content for new players. If you are looking for something to do while in isolation, then there will be plenty here to keep you going. If you have any questions ask for help! There's plenty of help to be found from within the LS Division! Division 2 - March saw the launch of the first Division 2 expansion: Warlords of New York. With a complete overhaul of the gear system, a new map adding Lower Manhattan, new difficulty levels and some interesting new Exotic items, there has never been a better time to jump into (back into) The Division 2. With a new raid, The Foundry, due to drop in the coming months there will be more to come in the future. WoNY also saw the addition of Legendary Strongholds, a whole new level of difficulty providing an additional challenge against a new faction...the White Tusk. Pathfinders - Pathfinders is all about looters, whether that's our current focus, Looter Shooters, or more traditional games in the genre. We are always looking at the next big game, if you think that you have found something that will fit in Pathfinders please let Billy know. Additional stuff World War Z - World War Z was recently free on Epic Games, if you picked it up and are looking for someone to play with contact Billy. Please contact @BillyBantam for more information! Other Tidbits Members As of posting this, the community is: 190 Members | 17 Officers | 6 Divisions | 10 Years Going

  11. @Dirty Andy has the upper hand in this match up.
  12. The Newsletter serves you curated content from around the community. We hope you enjoy this issue! Member of the Month Awards Member of the Month Award - @vault1965 (July) Despite being with the clan a short amount of time he's been instrumental in helping our Division 2 player base grow. Always positive he takes the time out to help people with farming, builds, raid tactics and generally making new people feel welcome. He's a rising star--look out! A job well done Member of the Month Award - @Elephantagon (August) Elephantagon is a beer loving man that we always enjoy playing with. In Sea of Thieves he has kept us company for countless hours on many a long voyage, all the while raining hell on enemy crews and NPCs. He has also helped restart Rocket League in the clan and has gathered quite a following of people from different segments, people that never used to play together before, but now do! He is a driving force in the clan, and is quick to give both advice and a helpful hand. Member of the Month Award - @WillDill (September) Willdill is a returning veteran member to the community. Since rejoining, he has been extremely active within most of the public channels on our Discord server, as well as in the various Red Devils chatrooms. Willdill is seemingly always ready to get into the Battlefield for some rounds or to lend a helping hand or some advice to someone in need. Welcome back and congratulations! Fighting 13th Charity Event The Fighting 13th will be hosting a weekend of tournaments and prize giveaways November 16th & 17th, 2019! In the spirit of the upcoming Holiday Season, we here at the Fighting 13th want to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves. Leadership and the Senior Council have convened for the past month on how best to go about doing this, and who we as a community should focus our efforts on. After much debate and deliberation, we have settled on: AbleGamers While an American based charity, they work internationally to benefit gamers world-wide. We here at the Fighting 13th have found this to be a worthy cause, and we are organizing 3 different game tournaments to benefit this wonderful charity! HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED? We will be hosting several charity tournaments over the course of the event weekend. Each tournament will cost $20 to buy-in. The winners of each group will have the opportunity to select FREE PC GAMES from a list of keys generously donated by Leadership. Winners will be allowed to select any number of games up to a total prize of $60. See the following spoiler for a list of a the current (and growing) list of keys that have been donated to date: ADDITIONALLY Simply entering and participating in the charity event will enter your name into a random drawing. At the end of the tournament, one participant's name will be chosen at random and YOU TOO will get the opportunity to select keys from the donated pool (Winners of groups will be excluded from the raffle.) DON'T WANT TO PLAY/CAN'T MAKE IT THAT WEEKEND? If you are unable to participate, but would still like to get involved, everyone is welcome to contribute $10 to the charity pool. Such a donation will have your name entered into the raffle at the end of the tournament with a chance to win prizes! WHAT ARE WE PLAYING? The first tournament will be a Tabletop Simulator Poker tournament, in groups of 8. Games will include No Limit Texas Hold-em, Five Card Draw, and others if sufficient interest. Each group will play tournament style until one player emerges victorious. FOR THIS TOURNAMENT ONLY: IF you do not have the game, and can get 3 other players who ALSO do not have the game to buy-in alongside you, we will provide you each with a free copy of Tabletop Simulator. TTS on Steam right now is available for $20. So enter this charity event and pick up TTS for the same cost as the store while also contributing to a worth charity!! The second tournament will be a Mordhau ladder bracket, with each match being a Best 2 out of 3. There may be multiple ladder brackets, depending on the number of participants. The third tournament will be a Civilization VI tournament. The length and number of players in each group will be determined by the number of participants. The winner will be last-man-standing OR best score by times-up. HOW DO I SIGN UP? The tournaments will take place the weekend of November 16th and 17th! So signup, buy-in, win, and giveback to gamers like us! To signup, please speak with anyone from Leadership or the Senior Council , and donate here: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8i3uL2ydqX When donating, PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR DISCORD/WEBSITE NAME in the notes!

We are very much looking forward to this and we really encourage all of you to come get involved. The list of tournaments is not entirely finalized at the moment, and we are open to suggests for how we could improve the event between now and November 16th! See you there! War Thunder Revival It is true! War Thunder has been successfully revived and is currently a squad under X-Ray Division. Wulfie has brought it back from the dead. It still has a strong following. And events are being created as we speak. It's great to see war thunder back in the community again and with recent reinforcements in the form of our amazing new members, we are confident it will continue to grow! We are also hoping to do clan squadron battles in the near future well as custom battles. Land, sea or air we are standing by and ready! Contact @Wulfie for more information. Social Media Manager Opportunity The Fighting 13th is looking for someone to manage our social media. We have had social media accounts for some time, but right now they are really no doing any work for us. As our social media manager, you will update social networks and curate content to gain new followers. You will also create new social marketing campaigns, build community recognition, and manage all published community content. If you have experience, or think this is something you could do please contact @BillyBantam. Tactical Combat Division "Spartans" News It has been a slow few months for the games Tactical Combat Division plays. Our biggest update is the new game mode and Omaha Beach map Hell Let Loose is getting. This is sure to get us fairly active into the game. From the developers: More on the update here: https://steamcommunity.com/games/686810/announcements/detail/1595888090488515470 Also, if you are interested, please signup for the King Two Lima event happening on October 26th. Please contact @copat149 or @Raven for more information on Tactical Combat Division news. First Person Shooter Division "Red Devils" News Battlefield 5 It is still a bit quiet around Battlefield, some games here and there. New content is coming soon though! The Metro remake should be live in October, which will bring some great and awful memories back for most players. The Pacific theater is going live this fall, but that will probably happen towards the latter end of the season, historically speaking. Halo Not much news surrounding this game. We started to gather some players that are interest in playing it. We expect it to be big! Call of Duty: Modern Warfare It is to be expected that not everyone is going to like this game (in a community more aligned with Battlefield). A handful of us played the Beta--the game seems well designed so far, and it gives many of us that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare nostalgia! There sure are a lot of bugs, but we are expecting to see a well rounded game coming out on October 25th. It is going to be lots of fun, especially with a number of Red Devils anticipated to pick it up. If you have any questions, please contact @Stixx or @ThunderPhat or @tindahbox. World of Warships Division "Hydras" News These past three months have been a great time for the World of Warships Division. We have broken records and gained a decent number of players. We made new friends and enemies--that is the Hydra way. To forever sail the salty sea.⛴️ Clan battles -- Season 6 "Neighbors": EU Squad: What a strange but fruitful season this has been. Wargaming in all their wisdom decided to change our beloved tier 10 clan battles to tier 8 which changed the entire dynamic of the competitive battles. The start of the season was great fun, but then this turned to salt. We struggled to push through the gold ranks and keep it fun. Then a plan was devised, and we sailed through the ranks to the golden gate of Typhoon League, struggled to fight for what was rightfully ours. We lost...we cried, we shouted at the enemies for cheating the system in their stupid little Destroyers. Salt there was. We tried again, and then... We pulled through! We broke our clan record by getting in the typhoon league. A job well done, gents! Sir Admiral Captain Commodore Lord Commander Lieutenant @Capt_Teek is very proud of you! NA Squad: We tried playing in a more structured format this season by having a set parameter for Alpha and Bravo teams. But, due to the constraints of life, this got cast aside halfway through the season and we went back to our old ways. We managed to get both squads into Storm 3 which is about our average. All in all, a fairly successful season where we learned a few things. A big thanks to our EU counterparts for helping us along. Well done to: @Gunfios with 184 battles played @L.A.M.Gunner with 167 battles played @Stracht with 166 battles played and with a lucky win and earning the Valor Citation, and @wr0s with an amazing play winning a match against the odds and earning the Valor Citation And a big welcome to our new friends: Leopardgecko19 Wonkothesane1 Welshdave Giles Blackprince 5wi55_Ch3353 (He has re-joined us. Welcome back, sir!) s03g Dlloyd117 Wedge Also, kudos to @Yasvar for becoming the Events Coordinator Also congratulations to @wr0s and @KingRichard201 for achieving rank 1. Take a rest, bois! And last but not least, @Gunfios is a great chap... Please contact @Capt_Teek or @Dirty Andy if you are interested in getting together with the fine sailors of the World of Warships Division. Escape from Tarkov Division "Vikings" News No new updates. We still play the game. @Jfranklin94 has been a very welcome guest of ours. Come loot the streets of Tarkov with us! Contact @[13th] Exiduslol or @Daytex for more information. Looter Shooters Division "Pathfinders" News Pathfinders has been going strong in recent months, mainly thanks to Division 2. We have a core group of regular players and a raid group that gets together every weekend. Since launch, we have welcomed many new recruits, most notably @vault1965 and @Facco95Pc, who have been a massive help in helping Division players with builds, advice, and teaching how to complete the raid. Also big thanks to @Draw for supporting on the NA side. Going forward Division 2 players are looking forward to Title Update 6 and Episode 2. Title Update 6 brings massive changes to the game from targeted lootdrops, weapon and gear balancing and a huge UI overhaul. Episode 2 brings new story content to the game based around The Pentagon, and a rumored new raid against True Sons in "The Foundry." Looking into 2020, the thing we are all excited for is to head back to New York! Do we finally get to take down Aaron Keener? What else for Pathfinders? We are looking to rekindle the Destiny 2 flame. With the launch of New Light (the Free to Play Destiny 2) and Shadowkeep on Steam, many players new and old are excited to jump into Destiny 2 again. There have been a lot of changes in the last year, and with Armor 2.0 going live with the launch of New Light it's going to feel like a familiar "brand new" game. Please contact @BillyBantam for more information! Sea of Thieves Division "Buccaneers" News The Buccaneers are still at it, killing strangers all over the deep blue sea. News: The one year anniversary update hit us back around April/May. It brings a long quest line with more lore, riddles, explosions, traps and other goodies. The Arena: New in Sea of Thieves is The Arena--a pure PvP experience. It puts you with other four-people crews for points. Points are earned by handing in chests, shooting/sinking other boats and killing players. Pets! Pets have finally arrived! You can now fire your monkey out of a cannon and watch it soar through the sky! New types of coins were introduced for this--you can buy them with real money or you can try to hunt down a special skeleton that will run if you see it (so be on the lookout!). Some of us already have a pet and this has caused a lot of damage to boats as the crew was busy playing with the little ones. The developers have also added fishing to the game, so do not expect @Benny_07 to help around on the boat as he will be busy catching the trophy fish. We would like to give a warm welcome to new members: Jazzy- he sailed with us in Atlas, but has finally started playing Sea of Thieves 🙂 Psyko-- Jazzy's brother, he only has a few hours in the game - but he hungers for more! For anyone interested in the game, you can try it for a month for £1/$1 using Xbox Game Pass for PC (beta). It includes Sea of Thieves and bunch of other games. Feel free to stop by #pirate-chat or ask @Forked if you have any questions about the game Other Tidbits Members As of posting this, the community is: 250 Members | 15 Officers | 8 Divisions | 10 Years Going Please welcome the following members to the community: @DenBenny @FaultyLogic @MaxWaldorf @Gregor-Jeff @_EnsignParker_ @HMCS_Devilfish @Toxicado @Ross @Mikazza @Katalyst @jbailey130 @Crazymoose @joejacksmith @Tiamatt1014 @goldtrain @Reven @AtmosChem @Ivar_The_Strong @Crus4der2011 @Jazzy @StibniteSmurf @Kinesio7710 @M.Sullivan @BeautifulMassacre @BlackPrince42 @CorgiTheDOG @Akuma121 @Paisaman View full record
  13. The Newsletter serves you curated content from around the community. We hope you enjoy this issue! Member of the Month Awards Member of the Month Award - @vault1965 (July) Despite being with the clan a short amount of time he's been instrumental in helping our Division 2 player base grow. Always positive he takes the time out to help people with farming, builds, raid tactics and generally making new people feel welcome. He's a rising star--look out! A job well done Member of the Month Award - @Elephantagon (August) Elephantagon is a beer loving man that we always enjoy playing with. In Sea of Thieves he has kept us company for countless hours on many a long voyage, all the while raining hell on enemy crews and NPCs. He has also helped restart Rocket League in the clan and has gathered quite a following of people from different segments, people that never used to play together before, but now do! He is a driving force in the clan, and is quick to give both advice and a helpful hand. Member of the Month Award - @WillDill (September) Willdill is a returning veteran member to the community. Since rejoining, he has been extremely active within most of the public channels on our Discord server, as well as in the various Red Devils chatrooms. Willdill is seemingly always ready to get into the Battlefield for some rounds or to lend a helping hand or some advice to someone in need. Welcome back and congratulations! Fighting 13th Charity Event The Fighting 13th will be hosting a weekend of tournaments and prize giveaways November 16th & 17th, 2019! In the spirit of the upcoming Holiday Season, we here at the Fighting 13th want to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves.
