I wanted to update everyone on the status of the Org and let everyone know ACES is still alive and well. With any organization, you need a something to organize around. SC Alpha has been very buggy but I believe that is about to change dramatically.
With CitizenCon, 2.6 dropping next month with Star Marine (and a new flight model), new org tools within the next few months, 3.0 early next year, anniversary and end of year sales, and Squadron 42 (soon), there will be a lot to talk about. 2017 is going to be a great year!
Your Council has been on hiatus largely due to nothing going on. Much work by many people has developed ACES into a strong and viable Star Citizen organization. We are ready, willing and able to make our place in the Verse. We saw no need, and there has been no desire from the membership, to hold an election for the sake of holding an election since we are in a holding pattern. However, the next election cycle will begin December 18th and the new council will begin the first of the year. The seats that will be open will be 1 from each division (Capitalist, Explorer, Soldier) and the Executive Council seat. Start thinking about how you could impact ACES for good in a leadership position.
We do have active members usually hanging out in our Discord server and many of us try to fly with sailor67 and the Operation Pitchfork allies in Star Citizen most evenings. Discord links are under the Community tab. Vigalance has been flying wing for Capt. Richard on Twitch and has been having a blast. Come on out and get to know some fellow ACES!
As Star Marine drops and the new flight model is tested and tried in 2.6 (mid-October), there will be plenty of opportunity to invite your friends out who are into FPS games. If you wish to host a game day/night, please go for it! I'd like to tentatively plan for a State of ACES meeting on Saturday October 29th. Please let us know if you can attend. Also don't forget about CitizenCon on Sunday, October 9th at 1800EDT (1900 Chris Roberts time). I'm sure a bunch of us will be in Discord discussing the shiny's.
As always, if there are any questions, ask away! See you in the 'Verse!
