A slight change to the rank system

Posted by: Goodson » Mon May 13, 2013 4:40 pm
Forum: News

In order to create less of a divide between Marines and the Senior NCOs, we have decided that it would be better not to display ranks in our names while on TeamSpeak. Instead, all members will receive a rank icon. The rank system is of course very important within the way the 3CB operates as it helps distribute responsibilities evenly across the unit, as well as help those with less experience to know who to go to for advice. However, we also don't want other members to feel as if they are somehow less important than higher ranking members as this is not the case. All members are treated equally and so we want to ensure that they are aware of this.

From now on, please remove your rank and [3CB] tag from your name on Teamspeak only, as shown:

Rank icons/badges are being created. In-game ranks will remain as usual.


Thank-You,
HQ

Timezone Change - BST

Posted by: Goodson » Thu Apr 04, 2013 12:53 pm
Forum: News

Just a reminder that as of 31MAR the clocks for the UK have gone forward by 1 hour (BST - British Summer Time). However, all events (e.g. operations) will continue to be based on the GMT timezone (aka Zulu) as this is constant 365 days of the year. Please keep this in mind when attending interviews, operations, training etc. Use the new 'Time Zone' widget on the forums (right of the page) for reference.


Lets hope that we start getting some warmer weather soon 8-)

ArmA 3 and 3 Commando Brigade

Posted by: Goodson » Mon Mar 11, 2013 6:02 pm
Forum: News

ArmA 3's Alpha release is a big thing for all ArmA communities with nearly every ArmA fan owning a copy already. So, what does this mean for the 3 Commando Brigade? Although A3 has already shown us many improvements over A2 it is still lacking major content and has also brought many bugs of its own.

In its current state it would not be wise for us to switch over to A3 for our official operations. Instead we shall continue to play on good old A2 for the time being, at least until ArmA3 is in a more useful state. Operations will continue to run as normal every Saturday night.

Note: The ArmA3 server will continue to run as normal.

ArmA III Server Live!

Its official, the 3 Commando Brigade ArmA III Alpha server is now live! Currently we're only running the default missions that come with the game, hopefully some of our mission editor guys will knock up a few custom missions for us.

The server is still in testing so expect many bugs and glitches (as well as the ones that come with the Alpha of course) ;)

See you on the battlefield,
HQ

Congratulations to our recruits who passed their basic training last night and are now full fledged marines. Welcome to the 3 Commando Brigade!

You are being slotted into our unit structure now, however this may be subject to change over the next week or so.

Please ensure you check the forums regularly for any updates on upcoming events (i.e. training and operations).


Also, brilliant work from our instructors - you have all done a really good job 8-)

Keep up the good work men,

The 3 Commando Brigade now has its own official steam group (thanks for setting this up Miskuf). This should increase the public's awareness of our existence and get our name further out there.

Please could all 3CB members join the Steam group linked below:

Keep up the good work,

Server Upgrade - Downtime 5/01/13 - Update

Posted by: Goodson » Sat Jan 05, 2013 10:35 pm
Forum: News

As you may have heard, our server was experiencing some issues last night due to our host. We complained (as this wasn't the first time we've had server issues) and as a result our host has given us a free upgrade to a quad core Intel Xeon server (more powerful than an i7). This should decrease server lag significantly and we have been promised no more downtime (lets hope). The upgrade will be in progress tomorrow morning so we may experience some downtime in the process (around a couple of hours).

As always,
J


Update: I've just been told that the server upgrade will now be performed on Monday morning.

Update: The server has now been upgraded and everything seems to be running normally. I apologise for the delay, I had to reinstall the web server and the forum database as our host wasn't able to swap over the hard drive from the old machine. Anyway, its good to be back ;)
