In this Community Interview issue, we have interviewed the Odem Mortis battalion, one of the best competitive battalions of Armored Warfare.
When did you create your battalion and who founded it?
The Odem Mortis Armored Warfare battalion was founded in mid-2015 by former Odem Mortis players and grew to a successful team within the Odem Mortis community. The OMC exists from the beginning of 2011 and evolved since then to a German-/International Gaming Community, which focuses on tactical war-themed games with approximately 400 members.
How did you get your name?
Odem Mortis stands for “Death’s Breath” in Latin.
Who is your leader and how does your ranking system work?
The battalion is led by our commander, Gh0st0nTour, and by Tigurius. Additionally, we also have various officers (field commander, recruitment e.g.). The battalion currently consists of 70 very active players.
There are no Battalion Wars in Armored Warfare yet, what do you focus your activities on at the moment?
In order to use the time until the launch of Lords of War, we are participating in various Armored Warfare events organized by the community (e.g. TankMania and DPSL/DESBL leagues). Furthermore, we are organizing training battles against allied battalions on weekly basis and are offering training to our members.
Will you take part in any future battalion-level content?
Absolutely, since the aim in a team-based strategy game is to compete with other teams!
Armored Warfare has battalions and a mercenary story line background, how do like it or relate to it?
A bit of roleplaying keeps Armored Warfare even after 10000 or more battles exciting. We hope that the content will remain interesting and will be expanded.
Are you recruiting and if so, what are the requirements?
Yes, we’re always looking for good tank commanders to increase our team’s power. You’ll find our requirements on our official website or can just find it out on our TeamSpeak (ts3.odemmortis.com). In terms of recruitment, each applicant receives individual rating for his playing style or vehicle class.
How can people reach out to you or send an application?
Did you have any special moments/experiences in Armored Warfare?
We’ve experienced a lot of them in some battles – too many to sum them up here. We’ve achieved success in several tournaments and events though with our Armored Warfare OM battalion.
What are you offering to your members?
We are offering a big and vivid German/International Community (around 400 members), the participation in tournaments and events and of course Lords of War (when the mode becomes available). Additionally, we naturally offer some relaxed gaming sessions in platoons during the day, evening or even in the night.
Final question: what message do you want to get to other Armored Warfare players and battalions?
Enjoy the game, even if it’s sometimes not running as it’s supposed to be, and support actively the game’s and community’s development. Only this will lead to success in the long run.
We hope you've enjoyed this interview and see you on the battlefield!
