This is going to be a bit bare bones for the time being; I'm making a Terran Republic thread for the TSR (Tunnel Snakes Rule) PA outfit on Connery US West so as to get us more exposure and offer our growing group as an alternative to the purple hippies on Waterson.

Do you like spraying bullets? Do you like having art direction that isn't boxy or schizophrenic? Do you like peace and loyalty and borderline fascism? Do you like cookies? If so, that last part pending successful field service, come join the Terran Republic; the original Auraxis Empire from Earth seeking to crush all the blue morons and purple nerds you can swing a Carv at. We need to regain contact with the homeworld and crush all opposition if we are ever to taste the sweet delicious cookies of brutal dictatorship again!

Our guns shoot the most, our tanks roll the fastest, our armor looks the coolest and our characters all sound prepubescent, much like all the other not Vanu anime characters! Though you wouldn't know it by our announcer; he's basically Sergeant Hardass. You can't go wrong with our guns, unless your far away and don't compensate for recoil.

We use the GW2 guild's Teamspeak 3 server, since it has plenty of room, and in game VOIP, when we are using pubs for cannon fodder. Info from that thread below (disregard GW2 related stuff):

Server IP: 66.135.59.185:9999
Password: pa
Admins: Corehealer, Entaru, Draygo, Enig, Geod

The below spoiler contains the Penny Arcade Guild Wars 2 Teamspeak FAQ, written by Draygo for everyone's convenience. Please refer to it for any queries regarding the GW2 PA TS3 setup. Server seats 100+ people and everything you want to know about it can be found below or by asking Draygo, as he put it together and has been hosting these servers for years.

Q) Where do I get it:

Download teamspeak here: http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads
You can get teamspeak for windows, mac, and linux. As well as your Ithing and your android, if you so prefer.


Q) Cool, I installed it, now what?

Now you must connect to our totally awesome server. In order to do that you must first run teamspeak. Then hit Connections at the top. Select Connect.

connections.png

Now you must enter the server details:

Server Address: 66.135.59.185:9999
Nickname: Your forum or In Game Name
Password: pa


server.png

Q) What does the banner in the top right do?

PAthread.jpg

The community thread banner when clicked on will open the most recent guild wars 2 thread on penny arcade.

Q) How do I add a class or race icon next to my name?

You do this by right clicking yourself, put your mouse over server group, then left click any of the categories named with the race or class you want to choose. You can uncheck them at any time to remove the icon.


Q) Who are the server admins?

They are Draygo, Corehealer, Entaru, Geod, and Enig.

Q) So is there a skin/theme for this?

totallyawesomets2.png

Yes and you can download it from our lobby. Right click the lobby, and select open file browser. You will see the installer file at the top. Download and run that file to skin your client.

filebrowser.png

In order to activate the theme/skin you need to go to settings->options, and click design on the left.

theme.png

Then select Theme and change it to PA Guild Wars 2.

Q) Who made the theme?

Draygo did.

Q) How do I change my name?

Right click yourself and select change nickname. You can do this at any time. Do not change your name to impersonate an admin.

Q) What rules can I expect?

Don't be a dick. No personal attacks except 'silly goose', forum rules apply. If it is not appropriate on the forums, it is also not appropriate in teamspeak.

Q) Someone is breaking the rules, or is being disruptive, but no server admins are online. How do I complain.

First, I hope you can all be gentlemen and resolve disputes by yourselves. If someone is being a dick, you can fill out a complaint. Right click someone and click make a complaint. Do not abuse this feature. If 5 people complain about one person in a short amount time, that person will be temp banned from the server. Do not abuse this. Admins will see the complaints that lead to the temp banning and will be unhappy to fix it.

Q) Can I make my own channels?

Yes!
Teamspeak is setup that you can make your own channels in any of the major channels (Except Admin HQ, Lobby, and Afk, for obvious reasons) First enter the channel you want to make the sub-channel in. Right click the parent channel and select, create sub channel. You can enter a name, even a password, as well as set any description you want. After you create the channel, make sure the Audio Codec selected is high enough audio quality.


Right click the channel you created and click edit channel. Click the audio tab and increase the Quality slider. Also decrease the latency slider to reduce lag time. Quality 7, latency 1 are the recommended settings.
These channels are temp only, when the last person leaves them they are automatically cleaned up.


channel.png

channel2.png

The person who created the channel is the op of the channel and can kick people from the channel (not server). So if you created your own channel and want to remove someone, you can password protect it and remove the troublesome individual.


Q) Is there an overlay plugin?

Yes. There is a built in overlay plugin. To enable it, select settings then plugins. Check the teamspeak overlay plugin and then click settings on the bottom to configure it. Here you can configure any color of each of the elements, as well as transparency settings. I recommend you change the input settings to enable mouse polling, and change the initialization mode to minimal. Minimal mode only displays the one person who is talking, the other mode displays everyone in your channel even those that are talking.

Q) Does teamspeak work with my G15 keyboard.

Yes. There is a plugin for that. Pretty easy to configure again settings->plugins, and enable the G15 keyboard.

Platoon Officers:
Corehealer
Ryke
LambdaKnight (Kakos)
Sharkweek (Sonork)

Anyone in our outfit can invite, but the above people will be around the most to help. You can most consistently find us in the lower channels of the TS3 server, where you can also ask for an invite. We've been rolling faces pretty consistently over the last week as a small group, and with your help we can begin to take on larger ops without relying on the zerg and pubbie platoons as much. Sign up today and drop into the fight!

And for anyone wondering why we're the Tunnel Snakes and we Rule:

    Our guns shoot just fast enough that I need more ammo. Some time being in NZ I'm the only tunnel snake, having to execute pleb republicans for not supplying me with ammo so that I may single-handedly destroy all the enemy sunders. So many justice executions required

    We need more for the TR in order that I have a pool of people to hand feed my grounder missiles so great justice can be done.

    "I think I can comment on this because I used to live above the Baby Doll Lounge, a topless bar that was once frequented by bikers in lower Manhattan."

    Well, the Vanu outfit is fielding a platoon, but in my (limited) experience the TR outfit is slightly more tactical, albeit on a squad scale rather than platoon scale.

    TR being my second-choice faction doesn't hurt matters. I will definitely continue playing on Connery with you guys in addition to playing Vanu on Waterson.

    Indeed, all our PA brethren running Vanu or NC are more then welcome to hop in and join us on a periodic basis; we do run a tactical group with all the sunderer/squad beacon support and gunship runs you'd expect. It makes capping smaller bases and establishing footholds in larger ones much easier and more fun.

    We mainly just need a few more coordinated bodies for platoon stuff so we can counter the particularly vicious Vanu outfit on Connery and cap the big bases. Entaru has successfully started to stream our ops apparently, and I'll be sure to take more screenshots.

    In a perfect world everyone would be on one server or able to redeploy cross server so as to spice things up. As it is, I'll keep the door open here for TR Connery.

    I made a TR bro on Connery to learn/practice reverse thrust in a mozzy (easier to see thrust direction compared to the scythe), but I'm not adverse to jumping on and shooting some mans or whatever. Dude's name is Imprecise; I'll hit whoever up next time I'm on with him.

    Also, and don't tell my purple homeys, the TR MAX has a much higher baditude visual factor than our lumpy monstrosities.

    Cool; and yes our MAX is pretty slick compared to lobster hands. My only gripe is the chaingun feels weak in comparison to the other 2 MAX default anti infantry guns, even up close.

    Should have some peeps on tonight, and some us including myself use Steam so you can tell if we're on through that.

    If this game didn't already put my machine through its paces I'd probably try streaming using my Xsplit license instead of the built in stuff.

    They disabled it because they weren't certain if they could handle that much data. They said they will enable it if possible.

    Man what? Our (Vanu) MAX default infantry guns feel like dogshit. I don't know if it's due to their kind of slow rate of fire, weak damage, or inaccuracy but I can't ever seem to get a kill with them. Now to be fair, I haven't unlocked any second guns for it yet so maybe that helps things but so far with just one it sucks. Just one AA gun is pretty good though.
