  Code of Conduct
Posted by: Reckz - 07-25-2017, 03:16 AM - Forum: Enlistment - No Replies

TF-88 Community Rules

The following rules apply to all outlets of interaction or other general communication mediums that are in association with Task Force 88. These are NOT in order of importance.

Rule 1: Be respectful.
Be respectful of all TF-88 members, officers, and staff at all times. It’s also very important to us to respect other clans and their members when playing matches with and against them. This will allow us to continue participating in clan events for the future. You should always be respectful to everyone in-game, clan associated or not. No comments about politics, religion, skin color, or sexual preferences. We are here to play games.

Rule 2: Channel discipline.
As we continue our effort to legitimize the ranking structure and the role structure alike, we must stay in a squad gaming mindset in the squad channels. If you need to talk about non-Sqaud related topics, you may move to a different channel. Miscellaneous chat in-between matches is acceptable.

Rule 3: Discord is for TF88 members.
Senior Officers are responsible for managing the memory and members in our Discord. The TF-88 Discord is strictly for Task Force 88 members and not a meeting place for friends outside of the clan. Only exception is the allowed representatives from other Squad clans.

Rule 4: Respect chain of command.
Follow the rank structure and chain of command. If you have any issues, bring them to the attention of a staff member or admin.

Rule 4.1: Respect chain of command cont.
In game, respect your Squad Leaders and their commands. Games come down to the most minor of details, and Squad Leaders and their commands are the most vital. Do not undermine your SL. After matches (both scrims and events) and in meetings we take a look back and reflect on both our successes and our mistakes as we continue to strive to be our best.

Rule 5: Team mentality.
Put the needs of the clan first before your own personal goals. Also, support your comrades and teammates. There is no need for negative attitude for poor performance.

Rule 6: Honor.
As a member of Task Force 88, we will always win and lose with honor. 

Rule 7: Respect attendance and activity.
You are expected to be a generally active and contributing member of our clan. Attending our meetings is important, but it’s understood that you will occasionally miss some. If you will be gone for an extended period, let an officer know. If you miss two meetings in a row and we have no warning of your absence, you may be subject to a roster move.

Rule 8: No Squad double clanning. 
We expect a certain level of loyalty from our members. While it’s ok to play alongside other Squad clans and their members, we expect you understand that Task Force 88 is your primary Squad community. Joining other clans/communities is alright, as long as they are not a Squad clan or offer an outlet in Squad (such as having a Division or Branch within the community).

Rule 9: Must sport the [TF88] tag in game.
So long as you are a member of Task Force 88, you must show the TF88 tag in game. To set your tag as that in Squad, simply go to the Settings, then Game Settings. Under Player Name Prefix, enter [TF88] . No, that is not a typo. Be sure to add a space after the last bracket. If you don't, your player name will follow right after the bracket and ultimately not look very good.

  Mission Statement
Posted by: Reckz - 07-25-2017, 02:23 AM - Forum: About Task Force 88 - No Replies

Mission Statement:
We are a Squad clan based out of North America that uses tactics, planning, coordination, cooperation and communication to succeed in matches. Through our experience, we come together to learn and grow as better players, creating a fun and welcoming, yet serious and mature environment for everyone who is eager to join. We want to strive to be our best, but not necessarily be the best. However, we do want to be known as one of the most respected clans within the Squad community. So join the pack, and become a force!


History
Our name (Task Force 88) comes from an American special operations unit that was formed in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks with support of the United Kingdom special forces, specifically charged with hunting down high-value al-Qaeda and Iraqi leadership including Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It is described as a "hunter-killer team" with its core made up of operators from 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment - Delta Force, United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group ('DEVGRU'), British Special Air Service, British Special Boat Service and soldiers from the 75th Ranger Regiment. Members of the CIA's elite Special Activities Division paramilitary unit were also believed to be an important part of the group. Support elements include the Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Night Stalkers), the Air Force’s 24th Special Tactics Squadron, and British paratroopers from the Special Forces Support Group.

The task force is known to operate very autonomously. In their only publicly known operation they reportedly conducted several raids without requiring approval from nearby conventional command structures and only requiring it from USSOCOM. The task force was also responsible for the tracking and eventual elimination (by F-16 launched ordnance) of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Over 18 months beginning in early 2007, the task force reportedly arrested 3,500 terrorists in Baghdad and killed several hundred others. Thus, al Qaeda bomb attacks went down from an average of 150 per month (killing monthly 3,000 people) to about two.

Currently, rumors of a "reformation" of a similar Task Force going by the cover name of "TF Black" have emerged, although most former Special Mission Unit members and insiders believe that since the whole concept of a "Task Force is temporary, hence the term 'Task' Force...as in being tasked with a particular objective", this would be unlikely, regardless of the reports of mainstream media to the contrary. Most of the time, Task Forces such as the original TF Black, cannot technically "be reformed" to hunt ISIL when the creation of a more current and lesser known joint Task Force would make more sense to those inside the Joint Special Operations Command.
