Recommended Posts

  • Command Element

The primary focus of the unit is special operations combat in ArmA 3 utilizing real to life tactics, techniques, protocol, and communication.

...

At its core, a realism unit is a role-playing unit. We strive to promote an immersive and professional environment for members to role-play in by providing a unique and structured military experience. When in-game, members are expected to act as if they are on a foreign battlefield or in a domestic training environment.

To give an explanation of what this means, you are playing a role in-game as part of the realism experience. You want to role-play in game as a PVT, SPC, SGT, Infantryman, Medic, etc, etc. You are expected to act as if you are that soldier in that environment when you are playing.

This means that you need to be ready to immerse yourself in your role while in-game. From mission start to mission end you need to pretend that you are in a combat environment - no talking about your "fps" or "lag" or "teamspeak issues" unless there is a critical emergency that needs to be addressed. Don't talk about what you're watching on TV while you're playing or what other people around you are doing. These are all things that break the immersion that is desired by others.

Voice Activation - If you cannot control your voice activation, you will be required to switch to a push-to-talk profile. If you have loud TV or music in the background, or you eat or drink, or there are people or loud children that are constantly making noise, or you use speakers that feed-back through your microphone, or any other sort of voice activation issues you will be required to switch to PTT. This can be one of the single most immersion-breaking experiences and will not be tolerated.

It is our hope in the 3/75 that we provide the ArmA realism experience that you are looking for. See you on the battlefield!
