    So here we are approaching the end of January and already a big bite of 2017 is being digested! Here's an update on everything that's going down in TOGA town:

    CLAN NEWS

    Members:

    A welcome to our new members so far for 2017..
    @Hobbit , @Carl Davies, @hu5q
    And good luck to anyone in vote!

    If you're a visitor and planning on submitting an app stop reading now and go get it done!

    Donations:

    Thanks to all those who have donated, the clan really appreciate you sparing some of your hard earned cash to keep things running.

    Forums:

    Plenty going on around the forums, a post to note:
    Battlefield 1 clip thread - As our new clan primary game, let's get some more content posted, useful, funny, showcasing yourself or whatever!​

    Roster:

    There are no changes to the Senior staff or Admin staff.

    GAMES

    TOGA BF4 SERVER - As discussed in the posts in the forums, it has been decided for various reasons to retire our BF4 server. I won't go in to details as it is all in the thread here

    Many thanks to all those who have supported the server, both players and staff for supporting the server over it's long deployment, many friends have been made, new members found, and fun games completed.

    A reminder to all to keep an eye out here for the retirement event.

    ROCKET LEAGUE - Lots of clan members playing this but nobody has sent me anything news worthy so I have nothing to report!! However if you are playing I've seen people in the TS channel almost every night so jump in and find out more there!

    OTHER GAMES - Curtosy of @Quic

    RAINBOW SIX SIEGE -


    Nothing new since Decembers post, still awaiting the Year 2 pass coming next month:

    "Year 2 Pass (release date: February 2017)
    Ubisoft has announced that they will bring a Year 2 pass to Rainbow Six Siege. This year 2 pass will include new deployment countries and 8 new operators to be added. The operators will be deployed to Spain, Hong Kong, Poland and South Korea."


    BATTLEFIELD 1 -

    A couple of weeks ago the clan rented its first Battlefield 1 server and can be discovered in the server list as: The Old Gits Army. The one minor thing on Battlefield is that you need 20 players to start a round on a map. This is pretty hard to accomplish with only a few active members/players who are trying to get the server going. There are some posts about advertising our server and solutions to try and get the server going (sorry non members, but linked forum post in our private section). Hopefully the future will bring some more Admin tools to it so that we can adjust the amount of players needed to start a round.

    Road ahead:

    At this moment some of you might already have played the Custom Games that have been released. One of these Custom Game modes is "Armored Kill".



    Which is a game mode where there are no scouts and where vehicles can spin around capping objectives.

    On January the 18th they released "Bleed Out".



    This is a Custom Game mode in rush where downed enemy soldiers respawn a lot faster than usual an regenerative health is turned of.

    Another Custom Game mode is "Eye to eye".



    This mode focusses on fast paced gameplay where the only class you can use is Assault and there is no regenerative health system. The strategy is simple, kill or be killed. In February there will be a major update on Battlefield 1 which will improve gameplay based on feedback and testing. There are

    The "They Shall Not Pass" DLC release (as mentioned in our last news update) will be in March. The pictures above reveals a small amount of the environment that DICE has chosen for this DLC. The DLC will come with four maps. Premium Battlefield 1 owners will have a two week earlier start.

    For any other topics about Battlefield one, please visit: https://forums.battlefield.com


    That's all for now folks! A reminder that if you have anything news related, drop me or Quic a message to have it posted here!

    Right, so where are everyone? Not seeing anyone for ages in game. Got BF1, and so far I think it sucks really. But I miss the BF4 server, but uninstalled the game for BF1 sake, so please? What are everyone playing now a days?"

    I think until the clan gets its own proper manageable bf1 server it will be a tad quieter than usual :) I've been a bit more into rainbox six recently :)

    Time to celebrate!!! One year anniversary for the most recent clan news (sarcasm) :lol:.

    On a more serious note how about we do just a generic about toga/recruit post on the front page? It’s what we used to have on FnB page. Takes away the front page maintenance and it’s a message that won’t expire.
