Irishkaiser - The UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company has started growing again recently and so have its challenges and obstacles. Naturally, the group, like any other, develops protocols and methods to make sure that at the very least, we lose nothing, if not gain something out of these challenges and obstacles. Many successful organizations have developed standard protocols when dealing with new threats and problems, but sometimes their procedures are so successful at dealing with them, the organizations that implemented them have turned a blind eye on the fact that they have outlived their usefulness and have become an unnecessary burden.
Don’t get me wrong, a lot of heads of burgeoning organizations dream of reaching such levels of sophistication and complexity as we have, and that’s their problem. They forget the basics and the easiness of simplicity. The problem can be seen in small organizations trying to act big by adding unnecessary rituals to the group. You can see that they fail miserably because they act bigger than what they actually are and the whole group is slowed down by hierarchy that doesn’t fit it. They add officers and leaders and departments when there needs to be none of that in the first place.
Now, challenges aren’t constant. Sometimes they even fade away and never become a threat or an obstacle again, but the structure still remains for most people, partly because they got used to it, and partly because they’re afraid to divulge from something that’s tried and tested, but if the structure has no purpose anymore, then why keep it? It strikes me as foolish and a inefficient to keep something that serves no purpose and maintain it.
We should all keep an eye on our current systems. That isn’t to say they’re bad, no - but we must keep watch to know if they lost relevance to current developments. The signals, the chosen men, the regiments. We’re the only clan that fights in Lines, Squares and Columns for Chrissake. Everyone else still fights like barbarians. Opening with uncoordinated bow battles and then speed charge after buffs like some deranged primitive tribes.
That’s something to be proud of, but remember - if ever comes the time when all of this is no longer needed. We shouldn’t hesitate to think hard about their relevance in the situation now.

A very pleasant trade run with logistical errors calculated by Irishkaiser(Avver gave him the account again) who is bad at math. A short fight with premiums were had near Grimdale but the premiums gave up quicker than expected and just picked up and left after 2 waves of attack. We sold out at Portsmouth and demonstrated our SUPERIORITY once again. Yakuza was doing quite well for his first trade run - in fact, he kept into formation more than we expected for a new guy. Hats off to him, that kickass son of a bitch.
Team Highland Laddies
EVERYONE AT GG THAT NIGHT
The UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company’s server provider MPServ was down because of some node freak blast accident, so the group decided to practice their formation fighting on GG against premium barbarians. Suffering lighter casualties than usual against multiple premium fighters, the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company demonstrated the viability of formation fighting to maximize full potential. It was discovered that we can keep our cohesion for a solid 10-15 minutes of non-stop combat - after that, it starts to break down. However, the signals seemed to reinforce cohesion in the group and 10-15 minutes is a pretty long time before we start to acquire combat stress.
