    This is what alot of sensible unit leaders have been suggesting to do instead from the beginning. I think that if the devs really want to show the face of the community then we should simply set a date and time, get everyone on, and demonstrate a large number of players working together and having a good time. Then, all the participating companies could get credit, even the ones who don't have alot of Captain backers with quadruple digit rigs, that way, the whole community could be promoted. Having companies make videos with three to six people in them would never be able to achieve the same amount as an organised video event with dozens of players would anyway.

    Then let's set a date for a discussion (TS, mumble, ect) to figure out what we want to do. I'm free the rest of this week minus the weekend and all next week.

    Works for me, let's take this to PM as not to spam. This is also an open invitation to any other companies that want to take part, I will be posting another thread here shortly, please reply to that thread if you're interested in joining.

    I work until 9pm EST the rest of this week.

    I think a collaborative effort would yield much better results. Two large companies doing war games would make an amazing video, Colonel Work's 1st TX, along with the 1st NCSS, have been doing that since the CS drill camp has been released, the players like doing it and it looks amazing. I will try to make up some more videos as I have time.

    A collaborative video from the community I feel would work much better then a bunch of single companies trying to get showcased. For the most part by doing this contest alone, a company really wouldn't get that much from it besides recognition. +1 to the collab idea.

    Collaboration sounds nice, not only to showcase the community but also to show off how amazing this game could look with a larger number of players participating in a battle. At least, that is assuming we can get more people together via a collab than any one individual company.

    Edit: Although, getting the different time-zones together might be tricky, unless we do it on a weekend. 7 PM EST would be about midnight for me for example.
