Communication is Key (CIK) is a competitive mid-sized outfit based on TR Connery. Founded in 2013, our leaders display a wide variety of leadership styles and consistently feature both high-cohesion competitive squads as well as casual combined arms play. We employ a top-down, military-style system of communication ran through TeamSpeak, which attributes tremendously to our "well oiled machine" like cohesion by allowing our talented PLs and SLs to communicate seamlessly.
 Our Schedules
We schedule our Monday, Wednesday, and Friday night ops, which have been consistently held @ 6 PST for over 3 years without fail. In addition to our Mon, Wed, and Fri ops, CIK also offers regularly scheduled scrims (both internal and with other groups), which are conducted using our outfit-specific Jager accounts.
 Our Community
On top of this we also feature weekly non-planetside events AKA "community ops" such as movie nights, Among Us, modded minecraft, scribbl.io, Jackbox games, LoL, and even a chess club!
Our leadership stresses the paramount value of community and, as such, CIK has been a member of The Terran Alliance for almost a decade. TTA is an organization of like minded TR Connery outfits with over 17 years of history tracing back to the Planetside 1 era. The member-outfits of TTA come together to schedule joint operations, events, and trainings on a highly consistent basis while denouncing toxicity in our community.
