In the month of June, 2016. Valve released a new patch for Counter-Strike Global Offensive.
We gladly inform you all that the new patch has given us new skins for our weapons, a new case for opening and improved sounds for different weapons.
You can find some of the new sounds on the MAG-7, Nova & Negev.
Within the Counter-Strike division there are rumors brewing of a TAW Wide Tournament in the month of August. More information about this tournament will come in a blog post as well as future newsletters.
Some other news from the Counter-Strike division is our new Social Night, which is currently in the planning stage. This event will allow us to look away from the game and let our members get to know each other even more! This Social Night is open for everyone to join! Our goal with the Counter-Strike Social Night is to make everyone feel welcome and at home as well as find new friends.
It is with a heavy heart, we say farewell Major General Jankles. Jankles has been in TAW for eight years. His dedication to TAW and the members has been exemplary at all times. He has held multiple positions within TAW and has gone above and beyond the call of duty in each position mentoring and reconstructing leadership teams as well as fostering a new culture. Jankles helped shape the Counter-Strike division to where it is today. Jankles has been awarded the "TAW - Honorable Discharge Distinction" tab, a well-deserved tab.
While Second Lieutenant JWhinchat was doing his duties as a Staff Officer, he got a special bootcamp. JWhinchat handled the hard situation properly, kept on following the Code of Ethics, as well as going through the right procedure of reports. Jwhinchat has been awarded the CC Appreciation Tab as well as the DO Commendation.
Sergeant Graf has shown great dedication to Counter-Strike and has produced a fantastic thirty three page guide on smokes. It is extremely detailed and shows skill and understanding of the game. You can find his work at the Counter-Strike Wiki page. A link to his work will be posted at the end of the newsletter.
Our member Second Lieutenant Tordyn has been discharged, with the Purple Heart medal. His dedication has been shown time and time again during his tenure in TAW. We in Counter-Strike division wish Tordyn a well recovery and we have him and his family in our minds.
