Attention to Orders.

It’s that time of the month again when we recognize the effort put into the Black Widow Company by its members.

New Recruits to BWC are subjected to a mandatory two week trial period so they can test to see if BWC is what they’re looking for and for their C&S to see if they are a good fit. They complete a quick Onboarding to introduce them to how we run things in BWC such as Opserv, a basic training (“BTI”) to teach them how their chosen gaming division works, and one operation where they have the opportunity to join fellow BWC members in a live-fire test of their skills.

During the month of February, 18 recruits fulfilled their requirements and became full members of the Company at the rank of E-2.

Congratulations, and we hope you take the next steps towards the NCO ranks!

Speaking of NCOs, TheArticulateGrunt has broken through into the NCO ranks - obtaining the NBR rank of E-5. In addition, USMCogburn has attained the rank of E-6. BWC is unique in that our members have the opportunity, as opposed to many gaming organizations, to advance to permanent positions of authority within our ranks. These members have proven via reputation, deed, and accomplishments to have both the desire and knowledge to help us maintain the standards of fun for all our members. They are the true backbone of who we are. Voted in by current NCOs in a review setting, these folks are the real heart and soul of BWC and we applaud anyone who takes that step.




It is rare that I come across someone that leaves no doubt as to their attitude. Steadfast, loyal to a fault, would drop everything to help out a friend. I’ve never met thearticulategrunt in real life, but I get the distinct impression this is him to his core. In my entire time knowing and working with grunt (as his friends call him), I have never once seen him lose his cool, raise his voice or show an ounce of frustration. I genuinely believe he simply gets on with whatever is thrown at him, good or bad, and deals with it.

thearticulategrunt has been with Black Widow Company now for coming up on 2 years. During this time, he has shown an incredible level of loyalty and dedication to MechWarrior Online, whether that is in Regimental status, Semi-Supported status or as it is now, Battalion (hopefully soon thanks to grunt’s work amongst others, moving back to Regiment!). During this time, grunt has gone above and beyond, pushing the name of BWC out to the MWO community via competitive gameplay and videos showcasing our work on the community’s subreddit and other places. People look for grunt in-game and actually follow his videos for tips to improve themselves as well as the enjoyment they get from his no-frills showing into how to play better.

thearticulategrunt is currently in billet as a MWO Support Team DI, and it is well regarded that he is one of the most prolific motivators when it comes to getting people teamed up, playing together and improving. Previous to the billet, grunt was the MWO recruiter, keeping a steady stream of both new recruits and BWC knowledge out in the field. That being said, grunt did a phenomenal amount of work out of billet as well; keeping operation tempo up, motivation high and not letting the changes that BWC has gone through get to people. His demeanour plays out in everything he does, and I feel that MWO would not be where it is now if thearticulategrunt was not around.
As of writing this, thearticulategrunt has attended over 130 live fire operations, 26 of which he has led himself. He also takes the time to run FTXs, helping to improve our players time and time again. He currently holds an Exemplary Soldier Citation on his jacket: an award not given lightly. This medal is the epitome of how thearticulategrunt operates within BWC, and I foresee great steps into leadership (beyond what he has achieved already) for this man. His attitude, workrate and camaraderie are second to none, and I am honoured to call him a friend as well as work with him in Battle Division.

Jr4life24 and I stand by thearticulategrunt’s nomination for promotion to E-5. I believe he is an outstanding example of how BWC’s NCOs should operate.

USMCogburn has been a BWC member for 4 years now and has held a variety of billets over his time here. After only a month in BWC, Cogburn was billeted to the PS2 Commando Task Force as the 2IC and then later the OIC. Following his transition to ARMA, Cogburn was the Regimental Sergeant Major prior to me taking the role. Certainly they were big shoes to fill.

Cogburn embodies the stereotypical NCO-lifer, or at least the one I have in my head when I think about such things, and I mean that in a good way. He knows when to drop the hammer and when to relax. Cogburn is approachable and congenial in most situations but God help you if you elicit his wrath. Cogburn did a great job maintaining discipline when needed, but did not ever let his billet go to his head. While the internet is serious business as we all know, Cogburn continuously demonstrated his ability to enforce discipline while not alienating people for being too strict. We are all here to have fun after all.

In addition to his billeted roles, Cogburn regularly steps up in leadership roles in operations. Whether platoon leading or squad leading, Cogburn is always willing to fill the command roles and does an excellent job planning as a platoon leader, likely due to his real-world experience in the US Air Force. Time and again Cogburn has demonstrated great skill at command in ARMA, to say nothing of his previous experience in Planetside which I am not familiar enough with to comment on. Whether solely infantry or combined arms, Cogburn regularly demonstrates excellent strategic and tactical ability in keeping everyone moving in the right direction and coordinated, which is no small feat.

USMCogburn has been in BWC forever and despite his current timezone difficulties due to his posting in Germany still gets on Teamspeak when he can to hang out with the regiment. He has even made it to a handful of ops since his move, which is impressive when you consider our ops typically start at 1:30 AM over there. His dedication is commendable and with his real world and in-game experience, Cogburn has clearly exhibited excellent leadership ability and is therefore deserving of a promotion to E-6.

Agents, Ubisoft-Massive is celebrating the one-year anniversary of the release of Tom Clancy’s The Division with special events all week! From 07:00 EST on March 9th until 12:00 EST on March 11th, the devs are giving out double rewards for High Value Targets. Straight after that, running until 04:00 EST on March 16, you will get double Field Proficiency caches whenever you fill out your Field Proficiency bar.

As a special gift and thank you to all active players, the devs will also be giving out the special Celebration emote! All you will have to do to get it is to log into the game at some point between 07:00 EST on March 9th and 04:00 EST on March 16th and pick it up for free at the Premium Vendor in the Terminal. At the same time as you get the emote, you will be given 200 premium credits to spend at the Premium Vendor in whatever way you like.






The Road Ahead for 2017



Ubisoft-Massive is still very much dedicated to the future of The Division, and they have given us an update on some of the things you can expect over the coming months. During 2017, the devs will be releasing two major content updates to The Division. These updates will add new engaging activities to the game and and will be completely free to all players and released simultaneously on all platforms! Both are under heavy development right now and the devs will also keep releasing bug fixing and balancing updates throughout the year to support the game and will be working to improve all current existing game activities at the same time as they are adding new content.

Let's take a look at the major features coming in the first content update, set to release this summer. First up is “Seasons”: special curated playlists of missions with a twist. Using special gameplay modifiers, these missions will force you to play differently to what you are used to – using weapons, skills and tactics you might not use normally. The better you perform, the more points you will get. After running for a limited time, the Season will end, the scores will be tallied and rewards will be given out, before a new Season starts a while later with a new playlist and new modifiers. The timing of the different Seasons, as well as their official name, will be confirmed later, as they are still under development. Over the course of the year, the devs are planning for several separate Seasons, which will continuously bring breaths of fresh air and new challenges to The Division.

Secondly, the devs are adding Feats, special achievements unlocked by performing challenges in the game including, but not limited to, kill challenges, helping other agents and exploring New York. They will also include unique challenges that will encourage you to experiment with different builds and playstyles. As you finish certain Feats, you will be rewarded with special cosmetic patches to put on your character’s uniform, so that you can show off your grand achievements to your fellow agents. There will be a wide range of Feats available when the feature launches, but the devs will also be adding new ones over time.

The dev team is also implementing one of the most requested features to the game – loadouts. These will allow you to save your equipment builds and easily switch between them, which will be a huge quality of life improvement for many of our players.

The second year of The Division will be an exciting one. Stay tuned for more information, enjoy celebrating the first anniversary, and we will see you in Manhattan!
