A Europe based gaming community of experienced players centered around ArmedAssault 2, formerly known as MARSOC. Our mission statement is to provide a fun and realistic gaming experience focusing on teamwork, tactics and training
(a little something we call the 3 Tís). We aim for simulated combat whilst still maintaining a fun and relaxed community.
[SIZE="4"]What style of Arma do we play?
We strive to play structured games with each player assuming roles within a Fire Team. In one mission you are the key to a fireteamís ability to overpower the enemy in the Automatic Rifleman role. The next mission you may be leading a Fire Team and ensuring their survival whilst accomplishing your mission. Every mission provides the opportunity for all players to experience the various roles of functioning virtual combat team.
We mainly play Cooperative
missions but also explore the world player vs. player (PvP) with other communities when the opportunity arises.
The ACE mod
is also central to our gameplay as it gives an improved level of realism over the vanilla ArmA2 that ships with the game.
[SIZE="4"]How are we organised?[/SIZE]
We have a weekly night that takes place on Sundays at 20:30 (GMT+1)
in which Tier1 members are encouraged to attend as a sign of their commitment to the community. Additionally, we often have casual games each night which create a great opportunity to get to know your team members and practice as different Fire Team elements (including as a Fire Team Leader).
Every Tuesday night is training night and although training is not compulsory, it is a good way to practice skills you donít use regularly during a mission and it also helps you learn new skills and tactics to enhance the gaming experience. Training also helps you earn ďribbonsĒ which demonstrate your acquired skills and which eventually lead to higher levels of responsibility and specialised roles in missions (such as leading mission as Platoon Leader or playing as a sniper).
We have our own ArmA2 server and also use TeamSpeak 3 for communications.
[SIZE="4"]Are there any minimum requirements to join?[/SIZE]
We are more interested in how you perform as a community member than your skills as a virtual soldier. Because of this we are looking for people who also give back to the community. Your attitude is important. You donít need any military knowledge or skills but do bring your willingness to listen and learn from experienced members of the community.
From a technical perspective you will need Arma2, Arma2 Operation Arrowhead, Skype and Teamspeak 3
. More specific information on how to set these all up will be made available on application.

If you are looking for a milsim experience we probably arenít the group for you. Our goal is not to recreate the experience of being in the army with drill instructors, latrine duty and being yelled at. We take our gaming seriously but also understand that it is about having fun primarily.
If you are looking for a fun experience that is grounded in a community of mature players that know how to behave appropriately then we have what you are looking for.
Ultimately it is all about having fun and that is our aim as well. Our community is built on trust, honor and respect. If you fit the bill Ö
