Ritona 'Misfit' Sterling | Alky's CO Application

Player name you use the most:
Ritona 'Misfit' Sterling

Make a list of links to all of your applications and (job)ban appeals, including whitelist and staff apps, within the last year. Also, provide "Ban reason; Verdict" beside each (job)ban link:
  • I have yet to appeal to a ban or apply to another application
Do you understand that any player - even donors or staff members - can have their whitelist status revoked should they break our Server Rules or Roleplay Guidelines?
I understand at the utmost.

Do you understand how the Battlefield Execution functions?
As someone applying to the role as commander, I am expected to understand the fundamentals of a Battlefield Execution.
I see this as a duty of the commander that the executions are to be fired upon those who are rightfully justified by not just the commander, but related parties as well.

Do you understand you are not above Marine law, or allowed to enforce it yourself?
I am aware that my duties as a commander should be leading the crew of the Almayer and not be the Chief of Military Police

What do you think is the job of a Commander?
The role of commander is a complex, yet simple role that many can reflect upon. They are to lead marines and set an example to those who follow. The commander is to set examples and execute their missions with not by themselves, but by the crew of the ship. Commander is just one man that will lead the crew to a successful end. However they are not to forget what that they are also meant to follow rules set by the USCM.

If a member of your staff is disobeying orders, how would you handle it?
As many people have their own faults in their personalities, members of staff are expected to follow rules however may it be.
  • Marines disobeying orders: If marines are disobeying orders, they will be handled by the MP's of the Almayer if they require attention by CIC, the CMP, the XO, and the CO will put consideration on this matter.
    Depending on the crime, they are to be just on marine law if it were on a low or medium level type of crime, however crimes that are punishable by death will be executed if the marine fails to comprehend the severity of their actions.
  • Officers disobeying orders: At most, they are to receive just punishment as they should know the punishments and their actions. The marines are under their hands. As a SO you are expected to lead the marines with clear vision and judge the decisions of orders and decisions, not to order them and blame it on the officers, and should they disobey, it should be advised by the CMP, XO, and myself on consideration. As the XO, they should and shall maintain the organisation of the Almayer and her crew, they are the second in command, and should they disobey, it should be held with the most justified actions, by the CO, SO's, and the CMP. The CMP is expected to organise and control the Almayer staff, if they fall out of line they are to lead, but if they go rampant, it should be held under CO consideration and the XO's.
  • Civilian affairs: I am fully aware that as the ship is not just occupied by USCM, but by Weyland and Civilian staff as well. Should they be proved a problem, they are to be handled by MP's, if the CMO or CL are to be responsible, they should be handled by the CO, XO, CMP, or any investigative force that were to be sent.
Why should you be whitelisted?
My first days on CM were mostly from being as a Staff Officer. From there, I studied the ways how marines act and learned how they work. I learned what was needed for marines, learned what issues always happens between them. I've always attempted to find a reason to remedy this situation by filling that gap, but I can't do everything which is why I decided to lead rather than do. As time grew on, I began acting as the ACO when a CO or XO were not present, even then I'd continue helping the ACO with tactical advice that aided marines to push. So I wanted to apply as CO and bring hope to the marines of the CM and push back whatever defines as a threat.

You may not be the brightest when as SL, but you really shine as SO or XO.

Would be glad to serve under your Command.

Definitely a +1.

I've left Ritona Sterling in control of the CIC a couple of times and she's done well enough.

I'd like to see you as XO before I commit to a +1 though.

Good application in general, and have seen rounds won by her coordinating with the other SOs, and which leads to a marine win.

But would like to see you as an XO a little bit more. I have seen seen you play it occasionally, and so many people are saying you are great as SO, I have even seen you myself.

1+ for now, great application, good number of votes, online a lot, but just think you need a bit more time as XO before I think you can lead the marine forces. After all, XO is 2nd in command, and SO is just 1/4 of the marines.

Bit iffy bout' this one right here.

Got alot of positive votes, thats for sure, but I will be making a case-scenario.

A SL of a determined squad got perma for assault with deadly weapon.

The CMP claims he will be let in perma for the rest of the OP.

His squad refuse to deploy without his SL and are in uproar. Slowly getting agressive.

The CIC staff are LOOCing, saying his a hardass, powertrippin' CMP and are complaining both IC and OOC for this.

All of this happening pre-deployment.

How do you act?

This is all IC. It is in marine law that you can put them in perma. The riot could've been OOC, but IC mostly.

If they didn't like it, they could've faxed head command.

I see your point in all of this, though.

Uh... I know this is IC, Lukey.

The point is to test if he knows what to do in the situation and how he will handle it as CO...
Like, you know, how the questions to be a moderator works and you don't have the mods/admins coming and saying "ah. This? This is how its to be handled" instead of letting the applicant give his input...

The question is pretty much ruined. I will need make other... *facepalm.

Well. There's many ways to handle it, in this, I'm going to assume it's a highpop standard of the Almayer; I'm also taking in consideration of other venues, but my main goal as a commande is mainly getting the marines deployed as that is what the marines are meant for. While marines can realise they can message HC about this, most would more than likely scream than use brains.

It's obvious that the marines can't deploy with a SL, and if the entire marine squad won't be proceeding, I'd send them over as FOB, revising battle strategies with them as a center. Refusal would lead to more death of marines and they would know that if they don't deploy, they'd be leaving others to die. Other squads will most likely attempt to pacify the aggression during predeployment, more than likely saying that the SL did do something. However it is most likely the victim party would want the SL brig therefore the CMP situation is just. Depending on staff, and as CO, I have a duty to maintain the almayer and her crew therefore I might send their overwatch and I act as their primary overwatch, while a set the squad SL to the SPEC, while the determined LT may be groundside maintaining the FOB and guiding the marines for FOB.

Overall this idea is to have more control over the marines than have to deal with multiple problems from mixing departments. Now about the information regarding the SL.

Since this is predeployment and all, I have all the time to decide the situation of the punishment, Assault of a Deadly Weapon can go either way, either the player was new therefore fire their gun, they were just one of those people who griefed, or they are actually pissed at someone, I'll determine the punishment based on how the marine acted in that occasion. Obviously, I can't meta, but a gun going off may have been considered a Minor Weapon Violation.

I'd need more info on your Case-Scenario, like what other issues came from the CMP, who was the assault upon, what damages happened, and so forth, but the marines will be deployed and the SL will gain just punishment. As for the OOC and LOOCing mess, that's for someone else to deal with.

Neutral. On the one hand you're a competent player, and admittedly you'd probably be better than a few of the COs who are already on the whitelist. I've seen you SO a ton, and you're good at it. On the other hand, whenever I see you XO you're on lowpop and you struggle. You don't really act like a commander by giving the SLs direction, you don't make command announcements, you don't use the basic marine tactics and you just don't seem to have a grip on what's happening on the battlefield. I also remember one time in which you XO'd like 3 times in a row, using the same briefing and plan each time and it got boring. All this, plus seeing you be mediocre as an SL, makes me think leadership just isn't your strong suit, but I also don't want to go out and -1 the app of a good player. I could change my mind if I saw you XO more often, but I haven't seen you XO recently and right now I don't think you're ready for command, sorry.

Ritona, Sterling, so. I've know you from CIC command and it was so good moments, because you just doing normal SO without problems.
But, in another moments with your RO or Spec/SL were few problems, eh, but it's okay. Nothing more than 3 denied AT rocket's crates for my RPG.

I just think you can handle CO's role. Oh no, +1.

Good luck with application.

Ritona Sterling.... Hmm where have I heard the name? Oh wait in the CM server and in the CIC mostly. Yeah that certainly rings a bell... Great coordinator as a SO but as a XO, it's certainly weaker but you can still pull through. You certainly have pulled enough time as a SO but as a XO eh... I suggest continuing to play as XO, without a CO active, more to get a feel of commanding the whole ship with it's company of marines. Certainly will help out in the long run... But other than that, I'll be giving you a +1. If you do get this application, godspeed.

Alky's fairly good as command staff. A bit pushy at times when in command, so CO is probably the best fit.
Not sure a questionnaire would help, as anyone can write the best response with time to think about it rather than having to make a quick decision in game.
