A few people have noticed me playing without DSA tags over the last week and since yesterday you may have seen me running [c-xf].
Being the spiritual leader of DSA MWO I want to explain that I'm not abandoning the unit but playing with C-XF for this current MRBC and WC Comp season (if it's not turned into 2v2 solaris). Crossfire have a very strong team so I plan to give this comp season a red hot go over the next few months.
I view this move as a temporary Merc contract. Running their tag allows me to more easily join groups and training sessions.
I was very keen to run a DSA team but due to low numbers it wasn't really an option. Having said that if you see me online shoot me an invite, I still love to play with you guys - had some great matches over the weekend with Phyffe, teacup and co.
I want to nominate Phyffe as the stand-in CO during my absence. He brings the experience, personality and cool head required of a leader.
Hopefully if we can continue recruitment and training we will increase our numbers again to the point where the DSA can be competitive once more.
If you want to play some group drops I'm on discord more than teamspeak, this is definitely the way the MWO community has migrated. A few benefits of discord over TS are that you can see who is online without being in their channel and you can easily send offline messages. It's much easier to coordinate and find a group to play with. I know some people are stubborn and don't like change (myself included) but I honestly can't see any benefit of teamspeak over discord anymore.
Finally if anybody else wants to play with C-XF alongside me they will take you too but if you want to play comp you gotta practice once a week and run their mech builds.
VIVA LA DSA
