Out-Of-Character Questions -
Previous experience as Civil Protection (if any):

I’ve only played Impulse in terms of HL2RP, but I’ve mained CP ever since the opportunity arose. Staying firmly in the Helix division, I like giving my squad support from the backlines and serving an essential purpose of not dying. That isn’t to say I haven’t participated in my fair share of sacrifice codes. Wanna say ~15 of my 130 hours on the server is spent off CP by itself.

Previous Server Offenses (e.g. Warns, kicks, bans, etc.) in the last two weeks [Optional: If applicable, feel free to explain any offenses]:
I was warned for frying myself in the jailhouse incinerator as a CP around when I had 70 hours, this was on the 4th of November.
It was 1:57 AM according to the time on it, so I thought it’d be cool to go out with a bang. I’d appeal if it I could.


Why should you be whitelisted for this role? (minimum 250 words):
I've had most of my command experience in Warhammer 40k RP, I've had a /lot/ of experience leading 20-30 people in fairly loud and hectic situations. Most of my learning stems from following higher-ups around and catching on to their mannerisms and habits. When there's no SqL around, which doesn't happen frequently, people tend to listen to my requests to have them do tasks. Though I've had my squeaky clean record tarnished by a bad decision, I've since learned to always conduct one's self as if a higher-up is always watching. With that mindset in mind, I'd say if you compared me to how I acted a good week and a half or so ago, you'd see a marked difference in general competence. I leave my fun and zany dialogue for when I play citizen. I've been praised by SqLs here and there about my ability to take initiative in high-stress situations and the Helix DvG can likely attest to my readiness to go above and beyond when it comes to the roleplay aspect. My 6,100+ XP would also help highlight my ability to function properly. I've trained a lot of people who are fresh to the CP job, ins and outs, proper forum posts for radio codes and whatnot. In the rare instances I have a moment to lead, I jump in and direct the other units. Guard here, reminding them to report DB counts and join PTs. My activity is fairly consistent throughout the week, so inactivity won't be an issue. There's always something to do on the server, and I've learned how to curve burnout from my years of roleplay experience.

Tell us what you can bring to the table, why should you be a Squad Leader?:

What leadership qualities do you have, how would you conduct your subordinates during chaotic times (e.g. Civil Unrest / JW), and what are key leadership mindsets and philosophies would you stick to / adhere to for the Squad Leader role and position?:
I have many leadership qualities including…


-Led a group of OTA during a JW, gave movement and attack orders from behind, being a Helix, I kept my squad in working shape throughout.
-Willing to take criticism of all kinds and grow from it.
-I try to lead by example, be a leader a unit can feel they can ask questions and learn from.

-I constantly scheme when it’s calm, thinking up solutions to problems that haven’t cropped up yet.

Scenario Questions -
A UNION i2 unit is saying Bouncer bouncer! Bouncer bouncer! 6 9 Haha. to a group of civilians, that seems to be engaged in jumping around, dancing, and playing loud Slavic music on their microphones. As a SqL unit, how do you respond?:


Call up two other officers to the location and order the citizens to vacate the area. If met with resistance, detain the citizens with the officers. Once dealt with, I’d escort the offending officer to the Nexus and inform him of the infraction he’s received and that if this line of behavior continues he’ll be marked defunct and amputated.

A JURY i1 unit runs into CZ without any accompanying units during Civil status. What is your reaction?:

Order him to exit the 404 and escort him topside. Remind him to never enter the 404 without a squad. If at all he continues to disobey after ordered to not enter, he’ll be marked defunct.

You are standing in front of High-Priority Region 1's entrance, just overlooking the plaza passively. The current status is Civil, it has been 'relatively calm' for the last 15 minutes. Suddenly, you witness a SENTINEL LDR's silhouette from the top of your screen, which meets the ground, making a flatline & biosignal loss notification. There is no staff online at the moment. What is your reaction as a SqL AND (meaning two separate responses) as a regular non-SqL unit and/or civilian?:

Immediately take screenshots of the corpse and signal loss notification, open the tab menu and grab his steam name and make a forum report. If he does it again I’ll just grab the same evidence as well as time stamps and make a report for team banning. The response will be more or less the same in and out of uniform.

After the aforementioned scenario with the SENTINEL unit, you have activated Civil Unrest immediately, less than 30 seconds (hypothetically) have passed since the last scenario (with the SENTINEL LDR falling). Suddenly, you witness the CA & a MACE LDR exit High-Priority 1's entrance, where the CA states in radio: "who killed him morons” & the MACE LDR states in radio: "WHAT THE!!! REBELS IN PLAZA, ACTIVATE JW Now! Haha." What is your (long & thorough) reaction(s) to this continued, complicated scenario?:

I’m no stranger to that sort of radio talk, so I’ll sternly order both the Mace and CA back inside and verbally warn them with failing to maintain radio cohesion. Once that’s dealt with, I’ll call all available units to the plaza, make them into teams and have them sweep sections of the plaza and its surrounding area. If a rebel /is/ found, I’ll F3 and ask for JW justification, informing the officers to rendezvous back at the plaza.

It is currently Civil status. There were two BSLs in the last 10 minutes, one in Grizzly Grotto & one in CZ. There are a total of 11 units online at-the-moment. As a SqL, what would you do, if anything, just as a 'normal routine' AND why (or why not) so?:

Order the CA to turn it to Civil Unrest. Bring a PT as well as a Jury out to examine the bodies. If they died via gunfire of any kind, have hardpoints and barricades set up along those places if there isn’t already, station Unions on said barricades and hardpoints and closely monitor the situation as it develops. Request status updates over radio periodically.

It is currently Civil Unrest. You are an SqL, currently flagged on, on your unit. There have been five BSLs in the last 10 minutes; a UNION i4, a JURY i1, a GRID DvL, and one CA was killed by a SqL deservicement. All of a sudden, a man walks up to a JURY unit on the street, informs him/her of 2 (two) rebel bases, in Metropol & Grizzly Grotto, and promptly leaves. You then witness the supposed informant switching to OTA. A ECHO LDR states in radio: "WE HAVE REBEL INTEL NOW, ACTIVATE JW RIGHT NOW CA!". Everyone in radio agrees with the ECHO LDR & the CA proceeds to state in radio, "Okay, activating JW now!!" What do you do, if anything at all AND why?:

Immediately call for the JW to be stopped, F3 a staff over for job abuse. Explain that there are only two reasons actually active, that being the DvL died as well as 3 other units. If the Jury was unable to interrogate the informant, his reports of a rebel base mean nothing. Order units to ripcord and regroup into more cohesive squads. Attach at least one Helix to each squad if at all possible and remind the other units to pull back for medical attention if they are injured in order to not lose ground.

When do you believe Squads are appropriate, reasonable, and/or fairly necessary? (Describe your own scenario(s)):

Squads are a staple of any coordinated force. I always tell people to either make or join a PT. Communication goes far, especially when you’re traveling in groups of three. I’ve had many-a-time where there are often squads of the same divisions, I like to spread out one Helix per PT. A good medic can keep a squad up and fighting if he’s got situational awareness. I plan to enforce this point to a T if I’m given a leadership position.

Tell us what you can bring to the table, why should you be a Squad Leader?:
Besides this question being empty, I like your application. I have also seen you in-game and had you in my PT. I believe what you said is true in the fact that you know what you are doing and know how to act as best as you can in certain situations.

Overall, +SUPPORT

I have told him in the past, once he got his app out I would +support however, app looks good and he has proven himself worthy for the role. Besides the fact, he is the only one I know with a understandable Voice Changer, He preforms well under stress, also caught him training new units from time to time, which we desperately need to get a hammer on. Anyways that concludes my input.

In the limited time you were in G46 you showed me that you were a very good CP and would make a brilliant SqL.
