Vanguard is not like other divisions within The Art of Warfare (TAW). It is a place where new and potential games are scouted, tested and evaluated to become full divisions in TAW. Some people may consider the games or, like we call them ‘teams’ in Vanguard to have their training wheels on. We like to think of Vanguard as a staging area for new divisions to be built; from the ground up. New teams that form within Vanguard to play games are built up, not down. By this we mean, when a team first starts, we do not assign any leadership positions. The only positions that do get assigned within the team’s first few weeks of creation are the Drill Instructors positions. After a few matches then a couple of squad leaders may be assigned. Its all based on that person’s involvement in the team and the game.
