23rd Realism Regiment

Who are we?

We're the 23rd Realism Regiment. A relatively recently created group, the 23rd Realism Regiment attempts to build and maintain the tactical, organised style of game-play that Operation Flashpoint/ArmA: Cold War Assault in known for. With over 50 member, about 20 of which play with us regularly, we're able to hold relatively large scale co-op missions and, if we keep growing, eventually hope to host large scale, tactical PvP missions. We have a whole range of members, from traditional Operation Flashpoint veterans such as Alex to newer players such as myself. The same goes for ages and nationalities - our players are from countries across the world including but not limited to America, England, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Spain and Singapore just to name a few. As long as you're mature and can understand basic English, you're welcome within our ranks. We usually have weekly Sunday sessions at approximately 12:00 EST, with smaller, lighter sessions sprinkled in at other times in the week. Our WW4 EXTENDED server is up 24/7, as is the TS server we use to communicate and organize ourselves. Slightly interested? Give us a shot, and check out our steam page!

Minimum Joining Requirements

 

- MUST have a Steam account that is in regular use.

 

- MUST be running ArmA:Cold War Assault V1.99 (Steam version is already updated to this).

 

- MUST be mature and possess the attitude described in this post.

 

- MUST have a working microphone and Teamspeak 3 installed.

 

- MUST understand basic English - it doesn't have to be perfect, but you gotta understand what's going on.

 

Recommended 

 

- OFPMoniter is a great asset - it allows you to browse and join any public servers after the GameSpy closure and can launch the appropriate mods for any servers you join (assuming they're installed already).

 

- CrossTalk for Teamspeak 3 - Only really necessary as a leader for distinguishing whispers from squad chat, but pretty cool/useful none the less.

 

- The Mod - we'd appreciate it if you could get the mod installed before you join, but it's understandable that people would be hesitant to download something before they're part of the group. Need help installing it? Feel free to ask us!

TeamSpeak 3 is our primary method of communication on our games. I'd recommend installing the CrossTalk Teamspeak plugin - It allows you to set radio effects in Teamspeak. Although it's not necessary, I find it very useful when receiving whispers; if they have radio static, it's easy to tell you're being whispered to and aren't listening to chatter in your channel. Plus, it sounds freaking cool!

Not sure if the group is right for you? Take a look at our YouTube channel, organised by Saroonva! It currently features some snippets of some of our operations (and, i'll admit, a lot of me talking over the radio by accident!)

We're currently running WW4 EXTENDED with a few extra maps thrown in - All credit goes to Kenoxite and Sanctury for WW4 and it's expansion, WW4 Extended! A 23rd tailored version of WW4 EXT is currently under development by yours truly, but won't be around for a while - even then, it's mainly back-end stuff i'm doing. For the average play, you won't notice the difference; enjoy the joy that is WW4 Extended!

Organisation and Gameplay

 

The way we operate depends on a few things: The number of players in the session, whoever's acting as IC (Dan, Saroonva and I have very different command styles!) and the mission at hand. For example, if Dan was leading one of our weekly operations and we had a large player count, you could expect an open net between team leaders and command. I, on the other hand, would (probably) operate with a closed net, with fire-team leaders only communicating with the other fire-team leader and squad lead, who then communicates with command - trust me, it makes sense in game! Similarly, our more casual "Assassinate the President" mission would be significantly more relaxed than an organised "Zeus" mission (and yes, that is ArmA 3 Zeus in OFP - Check out this link for Kotakulu's amazing mission!).

 

Generally speaking, your first few sessions will have you operating as a team member - you won't have to worry about the command structure or setting up whispers for a while. It's important you balance a decent level of initiative and discipline; whilst running off towards the T-72 might work, it's not the reason we play the way we do and will be frowned upon (and probably shot by some guy sat in a bush). Similarly, nobody is gonna object to you running 50m to that low wall to get a great flanking position on the hostile squad - it's better than clinging to you Team Leader and all getting wiped out by that lucky AI grenade, right?

 

The ranks structure exists as a way to demonstrate leadership and experience - Simply having a load of hours in the game will not guarantee a rank,nor will topping the score board every game - you need to show an understanding of the best tactics and strategies for the mission as a whole as well as demonstrate your leadership abilities. Don't worry about a load of bollock-y "Sir, yes Sir" stuff - having a rank system simply makes it easier when determining who's taking what roles and what positions. You'll be granted "Cadet" once you join the group and will be promoted to "Private" once you complete your first large operation (or a series of smaller, weekly sessions if no op is running at the time).

The 23rd has not been seen publicly in over a year. They still might be playing on a private server, but as you can see the last post here is over a year old.

 

You can ask akvadakar he made a lot of their missions and he still might be around here.
