Since the return of Brimjobs..... ooo i mean Brimms
We can take our next step with ALPHA COY'S Development! BY STARTING IT BOY!!!
BRIEF
Brimmer is happy to support the SQUAD push out with the numbers we already have and do our best to bring back modern military shooters into SOCA once again as a weekly/dedicated activity. This of course will give members an opportunity to play something more extreme and tight squad play within SOCA. BHQ goal is to get this team of SOCA members into international tournaments and to do this we need a good team of dedicated members with experience with the game and mateship with one another.
In the past few months we have had slow community ts3 joins and we have a steady amount of people to complete its minimum goal dedicated 8 people. With the setup and people to run the game rate will increase because there is a lot of people who are not apart of a clan yet in game.
Further @Brimmo words can be found here:
 
Launch Date
19th of September 2017 (12 days away)
Recruitment starts immediately/transfers
Events are on Wednesdays - 7:30pm AEST / Saturdays - 7pm AEST / Training are on Mondays - 7pm AEST
Roles to fill
If you want to take up leadership in the company please speak to @Brimmo for more information:

The dev team have announced this morning the game is coming out next month!! 
http://www.holdfastgame.com/News/Post?p=1025
In the early access it will be the standard M&B player size at 200 max in a battle then it will grow at a steady rate within close range to full release. The game will have most all features except for cavalry on E.A (So far we know). So you will have Navel and land battles and coastal sieges (Land vs Sea). The events side of things are in the works with old mate hikkupz.
So basically no heavy changes just a game switch with better gameplay and mechanics plus graphics. We want to encourage heavy recruitment for the SOCA 66e regiment and good leaders to help and support the game with @Manat123 so if you are interested in this please speak to him with details and goals he wishes to meet before release.
I am very excited for this because this is actually a game that I'm going to enjoy  
What Nation are we playing as?
We will be running as french because the 66e is a French Regiment (Primary SOCA). We are looking at making a International team for the tournaments which this only occurs once a month. We will be doing it with 10thRM just deciding what we want to call it haha but the faction is British because we are AUS/NZ.
Are we doing Navel or Land?
We will be doing both I don't see why but mainly LAND.
Will there be training?
yes of course need to be the elite and show these evil British dogs what we are made of haha. Thursday Nights
When will events be on?
Same as they are now in M&B Line Battles/Naval Friday through Sunday.
How much is the game?
20 pounds so that sums up to $32.34 AUD for now. Make sure you save up kids
 
Hope to many people interested something new to play dedicated and make a solid company out of it thanks guys.

Charlie Company is back to life once again!
MOUNT & BLADE: WARBAND NAPOLEONIC WARS
After SOCA's last line battle beginning of 2015 we dropped off the radio due to lack of dedication and interest from most of the boys (PS2 ALL THE WAY THOSE DAYS!). It was great and fun at times and sometimes it fucking suck like our good friend Poundsy felt. The first man to get shot every single time (unlucky man). But how ever due to major communities in the oceanic community can't support clans in this gaming area. A regiment of boys came to me and ask "what will it take to join SOCA?" So I've explained what we do here, our nature here, they totally agree and understand the CoC. SOCA can make a home for those who wish to have and offer terms from both parties. 
BACKGROUND:
66e boys are a new regiment formed by an old M&B man I know called Manat. Himself and his team have very interesting new ideas to bring to game and also fulfil it as semi-serious as we do with PS2. They rotate line command for those who wish to show initiate to leadership which is a big thing to us here. They are total 22 people in the regiment with 14 people 100% active for events. They follow our way of structure not throwing massive high ranks out of the wind thinking they run something massive which is a big thing here in SOCA. They play active RTS/FPS games through the week to spice events up during work days. Plus they know how to have a good time with the beers.
GOALS FOR SOCA:
For SOCA's point of view is to open a new FRONT for dedicated gaming with massive scale combat in a different era and weaponry. This also gives SOCA more personnel to other areas such as PS2 and up coming plans for the community like SQUAD or Star Citizen. For the 66e boys point of view this gives them a opportunity to being apart of something that supports everyone the best it can and help to develop improvements. Plus some members from the community will like to join in on these events and that gives them more people into the M&B line battle activities and play new games with a large amount of people. 
WHEN WILL THIS BE HAPPENING:
The Complete turn over and transfer to SOCA will happen on the Friday 16th this month.
EVENTS:
Thursday is training day for the boys on a private server to learn basics and leadership skills within the events. From Fridays to Sunday is all out line battle events, the MAIN ones will be Saturdays and Sundays. Once a month will be a campaign where the AUS community plays on a battlefield that actually happened in that time period and follows a quick history of battles and skirmishers.
SO IS M&B GOING TO BE IT FOR CHARLIE:
No so right now for this era and style of gameplay there is only Warband at the moment (Muskets or Medieval). The discussions and plans have been put down to be checked once we get full details. We have 3 options that we can move to upgrade Charlie Company because we all are aware it is an old game needs to be something new for us all to play. But however the community in AUS M&B: Warband - Napoleonic Wars is still very highly active around 187 - 200 people full servers in events weekly so we can still have the same experience as the veterans of SOCA once had in 2012 to 2014. Our options are for UPGRADING:
1) Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord (This is high definite to BHQ) - 
 
2) Holdfast: Nations at War (Napoleonic Wars replacement) - 
3) War of Right (American Civil War)
Other than that guys I will say welcome our new SOCA members next week and wish them the best in there area of gaming  .
Kind Regards,

Hello everyone and welcome to the SOCA Star Citizen census! 
The purpose of this census is to gather information so we can evaluate the SOCA fleet and figure out what kind of organisation we will be because our direction or goals in SC will help decide and influence how to approach recruiting. The ship information will be used to create a graphic displaying our fleet to help market SOCA for passive Star Citizen recruitment. Due to the long wait for the game some SC members may have become inactive, if you know these people and can reach them through steam or a personal contact, please let them know that their responses will be appreciated. Feel welcome to expand on your answers, a short paragraph will provide more insight than the check boxes alone.
This isn't a mass mobilisation of hype, but this is the first step we are taking towards seeing new faces around the SC forum.

Hey everyone!
Just wanted to give a quick promotion of the SOCA Rust Clan, it's been going great since the leaders made the decision to switch over to the Sydney 1 Server.
We were besieged yesterday but our members managed to hold off the raid group of 8 or 9 fully geared people. We actually managed to get 13 members SOCA Rust members online at once, so activity is great. The base has been about 80% completed now, and there is still 3 weeks left until the server wipe so plenty of time for new players to join us this phase. Rust is currently ON SALE (50% off) @ $9.99USD so it's a great time to pick up the game and give it a try. But Hurry, the sale ends 12 hours from this post!
I have put together a quick little video of an incident yesterday where a strange naked man visited our base....
Enjoy, and hope to see you join the SOCA Rust crew!

Hey everyone.
We are proud to announce that SOCA Gaming will be forming a World of Warcraft guild on the upcoming Elysium Project server. This server runs World of Warcraft vanilla (original) with no expansions. The game is FREE TO PLAY and there are no subscription fees. 
If you are looking to relive your glory days of World of Warcraft back when the game was good (and hard!) then you are welcome to join us. Never played World of Warcraft before? No problem! We have a plethora of very experienced members who will help you learn the ropes.
Our goals for this are to all level up at a similar rate with your 'group' in the beginning, enjoy the content from the very first dungeons available at low levels, all the way to 60. Click here to view the list of 5 man Dungeons available and their level requirements.
So invite some mates and roll 5 characters that can do dungeons together, or form a group from the list of SOCA members who will be looking to group up for Dungeons.
This way it allows people to enjoy the content between levels 11-60 at their own pace. And when the majority of the guild has reached the max level (60) we will start actively gearing up our players by running the first 10 man raid, Upper Blackrock Spire. Eventually we will look in to forming 20 man raids for Zul'Gurub and finally even 40 man raids for The Molten Core!
Tonight we will be releasing a poll on the forums to let people vote on which faction they would prefer, Horde or Alliance! (Update - Alliance wins!)
As it stands we have decided to roll our guild onto the PvP fresh-start Elysium server, where all players begin at level 1. The release date for the server will be announced some time tomorrow and should be no more than a week away from this post. (Update - the rollover server starts December 18th but our fresh start server will be sometime mid January)
Get hyped everyone and we hope you will join us in the World of Warcraft!
