The Company’s History

Short History About It

This community was founded after i’ve completed four maps with four types of leaders. Although there’s abundant of survivors managed to get themselves inside the legacy pool, i have selected four characters from the legacy pools which is the original four survivors from the tutorial map at Providence Ridge. They are Roadie, Kyleah, Santana and Natasha.

As a cohesive small group, they founded The Company. At first the legacy pool only allowed three survivors to be selected as next playable character, but thanks to CE (Community Editor) i managed to bring the 4th survivor inside my community.

The motto of this group is simple: “For The Community”.

As a decent group member, we care for the best of our community first, prioritize our own survival rather than other enclave.

What Is The Company?

The Company is a private trading venture, establishing a vast network of trade. Trade products including weapons, beers and even tobacco.

At first The Company’s capacity was only 10 people, which included 3 early survivors, 4 random person we found and recruited and another 3 former surviving soldiers joined alongside us.

Right now we have a total of 15 members, adding the 4th survivor from the tutorial, a Heartland character, 2 Red Talon Operators and a person from the final builder’s legacy mission.

While building this community, a significant usage of CE (Community Editor) were involved but it was for appearance merely. Only certain stats and traits were changed to encourage more immersion. Moreover the game will not be fun and challenging if i just cheese it too much.

The Company Insignia

  • The Trader: represents the current leader of our community.
  • The Sheriff Hat: represents our community’s decision when it comes to other enclave decisions, we encourage peace and proper resolutions rather than resorting to violence. Violence were only use on self-defense and if it’s just final choice.
  • The Sword: represents the community member’s standard issued melee, majority of the community were issued with bladed-type melee weapon.

14. Maria “Runner” Martinez (The Light Response)

She’s quite unique because upon hiring her, i recognized that she don’t have any 5th skill which is a win for me since i can assign her with any skills i want. At that time, my community was desperately need for heavy immediate firepower, so i decided to made her learn Programming to unlock recon drone and attack drone. Although she’s only have Red Talon Basic Training, she’s proven very useful, especially she can run endlessly without losing stamina, making her perfect for hit and run scavenging, short missions and even errands without needing any vehicles. Since she’s lightweight, she’s only issued with G34 when she’s in field and Bastard Of Belleau Wood for melee weapon. She’s only issued with M590A1 Shotgun when she’s not on active duty. Even so she’s still lightweight and could sprint even with full load of supplies on her back.

The waifu, the only lewdable errr i mean loveable character in the game, featuring in Heartland and Homecoming update. Since i fantasized about IzzBee while playing this game, i replace an additional no-name peeps i have into IzzBee herself because i can, piss off. Her stats are exactly the same in the game except for Cardio and Fighting because she would die with that suck stats. Her machine learning definitely help us with the radio cooldowns making drone strike, artillery strike, sniper support, recon drone and even normal recon faster. Her crowdsourcing also granted us an additional slot of outpost making the total i have currently right now are seven (could be eight if i have RT soldier with hacking skills). Since she’s have a small body figure, she’s using small weight guns such as AKS-74U and G34 alongside Shriek Knife as her CQB weapon.
