It's been more than 5 minutes without an election. You know what that means: ELECTION SEASON! This election, we will be voting for 1 Capitalist, 1 Explorer, and 1 Soldier. Now that we are firmly in our new election cycle, each of these Councillors will serve a 6 month term. Candidate announcements will begin on the 17th (or earlier), and voting will begin on the 24th. The new term starts on July 1st. Good luck!
Arena Commander has been launched, and with it, our first look at Multiplayer. A few of the members of Phoenix Squadron have been granted access to this early look at the system. CIG is relying on them to report all the bugs they can find, so CIG can fix them and open access to all of us. You can probably find Strydor in Teamspeak if you'd like to see how things are going.
The Council has voted to allow our members to join certain Subsidiary Orgs. Look through the rules, and feel free to join any Orgs out there that follow the guidelines. We want ACES to be driven by Freedom and Democracy. Strictly limiting our members to a few other Orgs seems to contradict our mission.
As the multiplayer gets rolling, there are new channels setup in Teamspeak so you can join up will fellow ACES and test your skills. The Arena Commander Lobby is for folks looking for a squad to play with. There are a few permanent channels to allow each group to have their own section of Teamspeak to talk in. If more channels are needed, feel free to setup your own temporary channels.
