Unit Flashback- Zombie Attack: Reformation of the Brigade.
After the turmoil of the second year, Zombie and Dnarvel took command of the Brigade and began to make changes to
correct the direction and makeup of the unit. The move from the old webpage to the new had its ups and downs. Much of
the old information and archives were lost, but it gave us the opportunity to determine who was still with us and who had
drifted off. It became obvious that many of the original members that formed the backbone of the 1st Regiment had moved
on. A period of reorganization began to match those players who were "competitive" and those who were more "casual".
1st Regiment was designated for the former and the members of Whiskey Company formed the backbone of A company
on the front line under the direction of Col Blacktoad and newly minted LCol SteveMac. 2nd Regiment continued to be the
home of the European and Asiatic players, while 3rd Regiment held the maverick X Company and 9th Battalion's creative
This Period enjoyed many fun campaigns and tournament leagues. Many Rangers participated in Run Hot or Die, the
Mercenary Review Bonding Commision, and Inner Sphere Coalition. Meanwhile, LCol Artgathan held some of the most
imaginative and creative campaigns so far in Operation Broken Arrow, a narrative driven campaign that built on the results
of various PUG matches on a campaign map that included strategic choices, self limited drop decks and even a few puzzles.
The Rangers learned how to play together and have fun!
Towards the end of the year, it was realized with the move of X Company to the 1st Regiment G Company coupled with the
fact that membership had in fact dropped to a point where the neccessity of a 3rd Regiment just wasn't there. High Command
decided to roll the remainder of the 3rd Regiment into 6 Battalion until such time that membership increased again.
With the advent of Community Warfare, it was also decided form a Logistics Officer attached to Brigade HQ to facilitate
the administration of the website, recruitment efforts, awards office, training program and eventually the in game unit assets
to free up the other officers to concentrate on their combat commands. The Induction Company was eventually expanded to
include all new members and facilitate a common set of rules and protocols, and the staff was organized into an
Officer Candidate School to fill the need to train new officers. The unit started to flourish once again and grow!
