Armagetron Academy: Mission Statement


Serve the Armagetron Advanced community, specifically the fortress and sumo communities, by encouraging the growth of a player population that is receptive and supportive of new players. Implement servers and tournaments thats are community supported and also provide cash prizes.

To-Do List

Subject to change

  • Serve the larger Arma community
  • Recruit people to Arma
  • Encourage and support new players
  • Provide proper fort and sumo client settings (cockpit and camera settings)[I don’t make too many changes with cockpit. Maybe this is something more applicable to client version 4? I use the cockpit of someone else (have to look whos). I have my own camera.]
  • I also changed the font and font size because I play at high resolution.
  • There are enough settings out there, I guess. We need a tutorial for new players how to install them.
  • Provide video tutorials
  • Host servers
    • Pickup
    • Sumo
    • Flower Power Sumo
    • 4way fort
    • Fort
  • Host tournaments (possibly with cash prizes)
    • Single day tournaments.
    • Leaderboard tournaments. (Player(s) with top score(s) over a week or month get a prize or other form of recognition.
  • Encourage senior members to mentor newer players
    • Senior members will have a modified tag that indicates their willingness to help new players.
    • As part of initiation as a senior member, the person shall agree to uphold the community’s values.
  • Independance of clans (People don’t have to leave a clan or team to be a community member)
