On November 6th 2017, this company began the painful process of rebuilding itself and regaining its lost momentum toward the Achilles helmet. Several members have certainly earned their helmets getting the company to where it is. They have done enough. They will taken in by other We Need Achilles companies nearing the helmet unlock. This will free up some space for new blood to join in and earn their helmets. All members of this company, new and old, are required to accumulate a fair share of the remaining Spartan Company Kill Commendations
to be rewarded with the Achilles helmet unlock. Fair warning: members with insufficient participation (ie. accumulated comms scores) will be discharged prior to the unlock.
Requirements to join:
1. You MUST
join our company Discord (see below for an explanation about Discord). If your join request shows merit, you will be sent a link to our Discord. We will not accept you into the company until you check in with us on our Discord server. (Note: if you are new to Discord please make your Discord name IDENTICAL
to your gamertag; if you already have a Discord account and your username is not identical to your gamertag, please adopt a nickname identical to your gamertag right after you join our Discord server).
2. You MUST
be prepared to earn these comms scores by the time this company arrives at the helmet (missing ones can sometimes be made up for by doubling/tripling down on others; once a commendation is complete, members don't accumulate more credits against it):
(a) 5800 Standard Issue: kills of enemy Spartans with a standard loadout weapon

3. You SHOULD
have a mic AND
know your in-game call-outs AND
be able to communicate with your fire team. Whether you are playing with other company members or your other friends, gamers who effectively communicate perform better in the game and usually earn higher commendation scores as a result. Fair warning: any members who are genuinely disrespectful toward others will be quickly invited to find a new Spartan company.
. Discord is a messaging app built for gamers and it is available for installation on mobile (android/iOS), desktop (windows/macOS), or can be accessed through any web browser at https://discordapp.com/
. It can also be installed on the xbox one dashboard, but it's still new and pretty clunky and awkward to use. WHY IS DISCORD SO IMPORTANT TO US?
Because our company uses a bot to monitor members' activity and scoring stats.....and members access that bot to monitor their own activity and scoring stats using Discord.
Ok? If you're up for it, submit a join request and indicate you have read the above by saying "DANGEROUS" in your message.
