Let me begin by saying “thank you” on behalf of the Officers, Staff and Members for considering [TSG4] Tactical Strike Group 4 to be your home for clan membership and journey towards building and expanding your online “Family of Friends”! Our process to become a full member is fairly straightforward and easy.
TSG4 is NOT an "AUTO-APPROVE" organization. In order for you to be considered and accepted as a full member of TSG4, the following stepsmustoccur:
Make sure to register on our website (using your in-game name). Only registered users are able to submit an application.
Fill out an Application.
Join us on our Discord server (using your in-game name) and click/enter the "MAIN LOBBY" channel room and ask for a recuiter by typing in the center text channel (channel list is on the LEFT side of the Discord window) -https://discord.gg/sTck9hr.
Complete your Initial Interview on Discord with a Recruiter (or Senior Officer).
Review the TSG4 S.O.P's and Ethos (located in "TSG4 DOCUMENTS").
Visit the TSG4 S.O.P thread in the "Community" section of the TSG4 forums and type your name or "/sign" that you understand and agree to be held accountable to our S.O.P's.
Successfully complete your Recruiting Process (detailed below).
During the Recruiting Process you will be observed and evaluated by all current TSG4 members, whether in-game with you or just listening on Discord. Your actions and behavior should be based on our Code of Conduct (since that is how we will measure your ability to fit in with us). Make sure that you read our “Code of Conduct (SOP's)” and understand what is expected of you *BEFORE* beginning the Recruiting Process.
It is important to note that carrying clan tags from another clan is not permitted once a Recruit and Prospective Member has officially entered into the TSG4 Recruiting Process. After your application has been reviewed, you will have your initial interview on Discord with a recruiter. During the Initial Interview, you will be given your rank (Discord role) of "E-1, Seaman Recruit" and be assigned a "Red R" to designate you as a "Recruit" to all of the TSG4 members. You are to update your profile avatars with this "Red R" on both your Discord Profile *and* your TSG4 OpServ (Website) Profile.
When you are nearing the end of your Recruiting Process, you will be elevated in status and given a "Green R" (the color green is for "good to go") to designate you as a " Indoc Recruit" to all of the TSG4 members. At this time, you will also be informed of your pending Billet Assignment as a full member of TSG4 and be given a "Indoc Checklist". This Checklist is the final step of the Recruiting Process and must be completed prior to being extended an offer for Full Membership.
If you successfully navigate the Recruiting Process and are approved for membership, you will be considered as having “Earned Your Stripes” and will accordingly be promoted to “E-2, Seaman” and issued your rank stripes for your profile avatars. For Veteran and Active Duty members of the military, please refer to the alternate provisions as provided in section 1.B.3(D) of the SOP's.
In an effort to help guide the decision of our Recruiters and Staff, ALL of the current TSG4 members will make comments about you on the “Recruiting” section of our website forum that will be based on your behavior in-game and on Discord. **Your ship tier level and your skill level (WN8) has NO bearing on your application because we have no tier level or proficiency requirements.**
The Recruiting Process can take as little as a few days or up to a couple of weeks. The timeframe for completion is based entirely onYOU, the recruitand how often you are engaged with our members on our Discord server (and in-game)! Generally, the expected time for you to complete your Onboarding through the Recruiting Process will take approximately 14 days, but could go a little longer.... (or shorter).... It all just depends on your level of activity,engagementandpositive attitude.. If you are unsure of, or would just like an update on your personal progress during the course of your “Recruitment Evaluation Period”, all you need to do is ask a recruiter.
Before you begin filling out our membership application, it is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED (and STRONGLY RECOMMENDED) that you spend a few minutes and watch this video! Even though our organization exists for games and in a gaming environment, this video will give you a much better sense of our mindset and help you understand who the members are at the core of TSG4.
**Helpful Hint- If the number of evaluation comments on your "recruit thread" does not equal or exceed the number of days that you have been in the Recruiting Process, you absolutely WILL NOT advance into the "Green R" Indoc Phase.Reason:The number of evaluations is an indication of your activity level. A low number of evaluations indicates a low activity level and thus a low desire to become a full member of TSG4. Suggestion:As you div-up with full members of TSG4, do not be afraid to "remind" them (or simply flat-out ask them) to make a comment on your thread. Helping your progress though the process *is* helping yourself... and is certainly viewed as being positive and taking a proactive approach!
Please feel free to speak to a member on our Discord server if you have any questions regarding the TSG4 Recruiting Process. Use this link to go directly to the TSG4 Membership Application Pageand submit an application to become a member of the Tactical Strike Group 4 family!
Again, thank you for your interest in TSG4….. See you in-game!
