  1. Discord Alternatives

    No, this forum is not any sort of backup for the Discord server, it's used more for information and news than anything at this point. Discord is our main way of communication, but you do bring up a good point. I personally don't see any alternatives but I'll keep this in mind for sure just in case. In any event though, the Discord outages are often brief or short enough to not cause any major issues with our community.

  8. Dear 758th members! We continue to keep an eye on our activity of members and will be doing a kick wave on August 5th. The following users are in danger of being kicked if activity does not rise above 500 before that time. If you believe there is a mistake, please contact an Officer immediately. Note: Anyone who has contacted us before with a heads up that they will be inactive for personal reasons and anyone who joined on or after July 1st 2018 is exempt from action. Our community is built around the activity of players. Inactive players take up slots that more active players could use. If you are going to be inactive, there is a possibility that we can allow you to do so without being kicked for inactivity. However, anyone who does not do this in advance is not exempt from action. We hope you understand. - 758th Administration

  12. Squadron Update, 4/28/2018

    Hi everyone! Today I thought I'd update you on some important matters, as well as introduce a new feature for our Discord server before it goes live. Squadron Activity I just want to say a huge thank you to the active members of the squadron. You're keeping us alive, and we're really growing a lot faster than we had thought. I can say, I never thought, on that May 29th in 2014, that the 758th Squadron would be one of the most active squadrons in the entire world on War Thunder. As of right now, we are #40 in the world for highest activity, scoring just over 72,000 activity. So from me, and I'm sure from all the staff, thank you. As such, we've run into a problem...we've run out of room! (almost) So how are we could to counter this? We're going to use one of our inactive squadrons as an alternate squadron for people to join. They will have full access to the 758th Squadron Discord Server, and will be included in all our events, except they will be running with a different squadron tag in-game. Some changes will be made to our Discord server to allow for this, along with a complete revamp of our permissions system, but that is the future. I don't know when we plan to initiate this, but I can say that it's Soon™! NSFW Section Update Okay...I know I said I wouldn't do this....but we're doing it. Some of you may have noticed the new channel in the NSFW section. Yep, that's right. We're going to have an anime channel in the NSFW section. However, there will be some very strict rules for what you can post in this channel. Rules are yet to be setup, so stay tuned. Until then, the channel will remain locked. 758th Birthday We're coming up on being 4 years old! On May 29th, 2014, I and Spideynn created the 758th Squadron. Although, it was not named the 758th Squadron as it is now...who knows what it was? Let me know in the general-chat channel, and I might give some GE away to the 1st person who figures it out. (If I've told you 1,000,000 times and you know it 100%, then let others have a chance ) Other than that, I have some events planned for the next few weeks in preparation and celebration for our 4 year anniversary. That's all from me folks. Have a nice weekend!
  13. Top 3 Most Active Players April 2018 Published: April 27, 2018 If there are multiple players with the max rating (1680) the prize will be given to the one who is in the #1 space. Prize will be given to most active player within 1 week of when this thread is published.
  14. Player Invitation Competition

    With the recent booting of many inactive players in the 758th Squadron, we're going to do a bit of a competition. We want you, Squadron Members and Staff alike, to invite as many new players as you possibly can to the 758th Squadron. We want you to fill us up (128 Members) again. All you have to do is invite new players! The player who invites the most new people gets the prize(s) listed below. Conditions & Rules Competition participants must be in the 758th Squadron Players who are being invited must meet most or all of our Requirements. We can make exceptions, sometimes. Players who join and then leave will not be counted towards the progress. Competition participants must mark down that they've invited the new player in the #invite-competition channel on our Discord server. The Administrators will keep track of invites 758th Leaders cannot participate. (Commander, Deputy Commander) 758th Administrators and Staff can participate. (CM, Discord Moderators, Officers) There is not a maximum to how many players one can invite If we reach 128 members while the competition is going on, we will kick players with 0 activity Players cannot invite alternate War Thunder accounts Players must also invite these new players to the Discord server. Permalink: https://discord.gg/Xcs3j89 Channel will close and competition will end on May 12th 2018 @ 3:00PM EST Prizes will be sent out the following week Be courteous and kind when inviting. DO NOT ADVERTISE OUR SQUADRON IN PUBLIC MATCHES! Prizes 1st Place 758th Exclusive Hoodie (Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL) (Brand: Bella+Canvas. PM me for sizing chart. Returns are not accepted.)

  15. Inactive Players - what happens next

    The following members will be kicked from the 758th Squadron on April 12th for inactivity. Note: If your name is on this list, you can avoid getting kicked by increasing your activity.
  16. Hi gang! We'll be continuing the kick sprees of inactive players. We now have a new way of doing this, and this will be a bi-monthly occurrence. Don't worry - there are ways to escape being kicked if you have a legitimate reason. Methods We will be kicking players only with 0 activity, and ones that have not been set to on leave. Below is the current (as of 9/29/17) who are in danger of being kicked. Everyone on this list is not guaranteed to be kicked right away or soon, however there's no promise that you'll be staying. We will be kicking in waves and every 2 months, so keep an eye on the announcements. There will be no warnings this time, it will just happen! Kicks will be issued the day after I make the announcement, and you will be given exactly 24 hours to increase your activity to above 0. "But Elite, I have school, work, etc. and am not able to play! What about me?" I'm sorry guys, but we need space for more active players. Hopefully you can understand. The only exception I will make is to those who are in the Military or have infinite amounts of work. Please PM an Officer to sort that out. Ways to escape the terror If you seriously love us and don't want to get kicked, there are ways of escaping this. As said above, please PM an Officer and maybe we can sort something out. I can guarantee one thing from this post. Everyone on that list, as long as they do not provide the staff team with a legitimate and valid reason as to why they're not active, will be kicked at some point. In the meantime, we will be working to recruit more active players, so expect some new guys soon! - 758th Administration

  18. Weekly Custom Battle Rules

    HIDE N SEEK RULES Seekers must not move at the beginning of the game until the host says so. Hiders have 2 minutes at the start of every game to go hide. Hiders have 4 minutes to find a spot after the 2 minutes is up. After which, hiders must find the nearest spot to hide and / or stay in place until they are found or until they are the last one remaining. Hiders CANNOT move once the 4 minutes is up. The last hider remaining can move and shoot at the seekers. Hiders cannot use glitch or "BS" spots to hide. These count as: Buildings you normally cannot get into (I.E., churches) Inside rocks or in glitched / exploit spots Outside of the map (I.E., under it or outside of the normal playing area) In their own spawn or at least in the spawn protection area Hiders may respawn in an aircraft after they die. Hiders cannot give hints or kill seekers, including the recon aircraft. Hiders cannot run down the tickets to an automatic game end. Failure to follow these rules will result in a kick.
  19. Each week, the 758th holds a Custom Battle for everyone in the squadron to join. Because of recent events, here are some ground rules for the weekly CBs. These rules apply to ALL users, Administrators, Staff and Squadron Members. Minimal killing unless otherwise specified by the host. If someone asks you to stop, please respect that. Revenge kills are allowed, but not to an excessive nature Excessive killing, especially if it is called "accidental" will not be tolerated Team killing of any kind will not be tolerated Keeping the bots alive is important to keeping the game running longer Administrators of the squadron are allowed to host official squadron CBs Non-squadron members are not allowed to join under any circumstances, and will be kicked upon joining Players reserve the right to request a map change, 1st person to say a different map, with the approval of the host, will get their choice Players who are currently muted on the 758th Discord Server for rule violations are not permitted to join the weekly CBs All in-game squadron rules apply in the CBs Violations Verbal Warning - The player in question will be given one verbal warning either in voice chat or text chat. Continued rule breaking will result in the following. Continued Rule Breaking 1st Offense - Kick from the CB 2nd Offense - Ban from the current CB and future CBs (Will be kicked upon entry) Bans cannot be appealed.

  21. Hello everyone, We'd like to remind you all of something that we don't do very often around here. We have been informed of a recent ban wave regarding people illegally buying content and people buying content off untrustworthy sites. Buying GE and other items from the Gaijin.Net Store off an untrusted site is highly unrecommended, and will result in an account ban. While these bans can be resolved by contacting our Gaijin Support Team to rebuy the item(s) with your own funds, we do not recommend doing this. Anyone who has bought an item off our Store with a stolen credit card or something of that type, will also receive an account ban. The resolution method is the same. Just remember to always buy your War Thunder GE and items off Steam, the PSN Store or the Gaijin.Net Store, and you'll be fine. The point of this PSA is to remind players of three things: DO NOT buy War Thunder items off sites that are not directly connected to or partnered with Gaijin Entertainment DO NOT buy War Thunder items with a stolen credit card or stolen purchase method Any account that gets banned will be kicked from our squadron. You may rejoin if you get unbanned. While we Community Helpers cannot give any real assistance in this situation, you may feel free to contact Gaijin Support to get help, should your account get banned. Now is also a good time to remind you of a few more things: Selling accounts is illegal, and will result in a ban Sharing accounts is illegal and will most likely result in a ban Trading / Lending accounts is also illegal and will result in the same Doing any of these three things can result in a permanent account ban, especially that top point. Please remember this before doing such actions! You can read all of these points and more in the War Thunder Terms of Use, and the War Thunder EULA. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation! - WT Community Helpers [TheElite96, Keebird]
  22. The following changes take effect on February 1st at 12:00AM EST. A user can get 1st place a grand total of twice per 3 months
