AJSA "Patriotism"- We need more

3 posts in this topic

So...This idea comes from a bunch of instances. Partly from looking over the merchandise and being totally uninterested (ladies' string thing? really?), also being in situations like Planetside and wishing for a more hardcore version of the AngryJoe theme, or at least a war chant. It occured to me, let's work on these, or at least make this something for higher to think about.

First idea: a military looking shirt that we can then add badges, forums awards, nametapes, etc. There's already someone working on 3d printed badges. http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/26069-3d-printed-ajsa-badges/

The forum awards, teamspeak ranks, and nametapes could all be done pretty cost effectively. At the very worst you can print the awards off and laminate them. Here's a link for wholesale shirts that fit my idea and our price range: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-2014-Mens-Fashion-Gold-Epaulets-Muitl-Button-Pockets-Stand-Collar-3-4-Sleeve-Slim-Casual/32245524951.html

The primary idea behind the "uniform" is something we can use as a recruiting tool, but especially as a display of AJSA pride at places like conventions. Imagine a whole mass of use out there gilded up with AJSA gold. Black/red hats, pants, boots etc would complete the ensemble, and wouldn't need to sell those. We could even get Joe a Lord Commander version, but he'll probably prefer his jacket. Hey, there's an idea: AJSA conventions. O.O

Second idea: A hardcore AJSA theme and a fearsome battle chant/cry. You know, like a Spartan "Awoo!". Something we can crank in the heat of battle for us, or even better, for our enemies. Just imagine using that while crushing a base in planetside, arma, battlefield, etc. Make them fear the sound of AJSA.

Also, AJSA needs some good recruitement vids.

So, anyone got any ideas?

The problem with an ajsa convention is the fact that the community is so global (which is awesome) that it might be hard to get a lot of people together. Having an ajsa presence at other, larger conventions would be neat though.

While the idea of a battlecry is cool, actually using during a team based game may not be practical as A) it would make it impossible for the team to communicate with each other while that is going on, and B) the other team can't hear it unless we invite them to our teamspeak.

Just my thoughts

Yeah, the fact opponents can't hear it is disappointing. The cry would have to be used in moderation, or only at the commanding officer's order. Can always shout it in text. Fear through association. It can also be used to invigorate non-AJSA players on the team, like in Planetside. Shout that in proximity chat, that'll get the pubbies excited.

As for conventions, maybe localize them? Or shift the location ever year? It may be possible.
