MWO: The Little Mech That Could

NASA’s Opportunity Rover Withstands Another Harsh Winter on Mars

When the Opportunity rover landed on Mars on January 25th, 2004, its mission was only meant to last for about 90 Earth days. But the little Mech that could has exceeded all expectations by remaining in operation for over 14 years and traveled a total of about 50 km (28 mi).
Basically, Opportunity has continued to remain mobile and gather scientific data 50 times longer than its designated lifespan.

State of the Game: Star Citizen
State of the Game is a new series of stories, designed to shed some light on each and every one of the games BWC supports through interviews with the chain of command. It's purpose is to shed some light on them, and generate interest to persuade members to try out some games other than their primary. We begin with a game that has raised many questions, hopes, and fears: Star Citizen. Sitting down with us is Star Citizen's commanding officer - Trister.

Q: Star Citizen recently had a few new updates. What are the most eye-drawing additions that are worth noting?

A: The new planet tech is definitely a big one. Exploration of the universe is just vast now. You can seamlessly travel from space to planet without any loading screens. The fidelity in which this is done is also very impressive. The newest addition that has come up to Star Citizen is trading, in its first iteration. It's unique in that it prices commodities from supply and demand and trading volume, not based simply on distances. Right now the economy is player driven, but there will be a 9 to 1 AI to human ratio coming in. It's still alpha, and the trading system is still new and not yet finalized, and the same goes for the rest of the game. But for the most part, there is still a lot more to do with other players. You can kinda just do what you want. You can explore, fight, trade, and more.

Q: Star Citizen, as you just pointed out, is still in Alpha. It's not a completed game. Some say that the regiment of Star Citizen within BWC was started a little too early. What do you say to that?

A: In a way, we may have started the regiment a little too early. There was a lot of work that was put into it that quickly became outdated or non-viable as the game kept changing. We were at one point at around 600 members of BWC who had Star Citizen on their jacket. That number has declined over the years for a number of reasons, such as the game not panning out to expectations, the time of development, and that there seems to be no progression thus far. It did still benefit BWC in a way, as many people who joined BWC for Star Citizen went into other games, such as you [the author]. For now though, the ops are still very lively. We have some basic training, but for the most part we head into the game and mess around with the persistent universe. We do combat sims, trade, or just explore and have some fun.

Q: What would you like to see for the development of Star Citizen's regiment, working with what you got so far?

A: No doubt we need more participation. We need more recruiting, some new blood to build the regiment up. But also, within the game itself, we do need subject matter experts, like how Arma III has drill instructors who are designated subject experts, but we also need leaders. And also, just general participation. If you got the game, really, just come out once a month if not more! We would love to have you, and it is honestly a lot of fun with our ops.

Q: How do you envision BWC acting as the game eventually reaches the end of its development and moves into launch?

A: As BWC does in all games, we are going to kick ass. We're going to attempt to do anything and everything there is in the game, and we will aim at being the best at those things. But that isn't going to happen overnight, and we want to use the organization we already have in place from before the game even launches to put us at an advantage the moment comes out. We want to be dominant both in combat and in economics, as there will be that aspect in the game. We want to claim our own section of space, we want to be feared but respect, and we want to be able to have the community of that game recognize our group by looking at us.

Q: Do you have anything else to add about the state of the game, or the regiment?

A: There is a lot of passion behind this game, and there's a lot of strong emotions that stems from that. That leads to both positive and negative attitudes about the state of the game, and the state of the regiment. Good games take time, and all we can do on our end is be patient and manage expectations. But we can still have fun with the game so far - get in game, and play together. We joined BWC to play together - so let's do just that. Play together.

Star Citizen is a supported game in our Conquest Division and offers all BWC members a great opportunity for quality gaming, team building and event participation. Featuring tactical variety, fun and engaging gameplay mixed with competitive elements, Star Citizen espouses the “One Team, One Fight” ethos that BWC centers itself upon perfectly.

Here it is in Xzenos own words
I need footage from all games
Greetings nerds,
I am in the middle of building a new recruiting video for BWC, and I've exhausted PAO's depot of footage from all our supported games.
Which means I need MORE to satisfy my need.

Here's the specifics that I need to be able to use your video:
1. Encoded in an open/popular codec. H.264 MPEG4 preferred. PLEASE NO FLV OR AVI.
2. Resolution is 1080p (1920x1080). 720p is acceptable but not optimal.
3. 30fps maximum. I know. I know. The video is going to be rendered in 30 and I don't want to download an extra 40gb just because you are waving your PCMasterRace dick everywhere.
4. Must take place during a BWC Operation.
5. Absolutely no streamer overlays or watermarks.

Here's the things that I want in your video:
1. Kill streaks
2. Skill shots
3. Zergs
4. Formations
5. Explosions
6. Michael Bay
7. Aliens
8. Pew pew pew pew
9. Space 'Murica
10. Booty booty booty rockin' everywhere.
11. Lots of BWC members in squad/fleet/whatever you guys call it
