There is no formal “joining” or “application” process.

Anyone is free to jump in and take part in any impromptu weekday sessions. For Saturday games we like you to fill out a brief Google Docs questionnaire first. Besides getting a basic headcount of those who've played with us, it's a good way to determine the level of familiarity of players with the basics of ArmA, ACE, ACRE, and whether or not they need to be put in a team with some more experienced players for their first Saturday.

Check out the setup guide for instructions on installing and setting up the modset.

Apex is not explicitly required but is strongly recommended.

In October the moratorium we placed on using Apex content was lifted, which gives mission makers the option of using Tanoa or its assets. Some maps may also update themselves to use Apex assets, as is the case for Australia starting with version 5.07.

Saturday mission signup posts will state whether or not Apex is required for that specific mission.

Saturday missions are our primary event that takes place on Saturdays at 2100 GMT. This may not be convenient for everyone, but it is the best compromise that works for players across the US, EU, and Oceania regions. Each Saturday mission will include a countdown timer that adjusts that time to your local timezone.

Several days prior to each mission, a post will be made to the subreddit listing information about it and slots for signups. The majority of listed slots will be first come, first serve. The exceptions to this are specialty slots like pilots or player antagonists which may be selected by lottery.

Signups are broken up into three categories:

  • If you know you can make it, you should sign up for a slot. Signups are important because they help us judge expected players and whether scaling or additional slots are needed.
  • Reserves are for people who may be able to attend but don't want to take a slot because there's still the possibility they may miss it.
  • Latrine duty is a tongue-in-cheek way of saying that you won't be able to make it but still want to make your presence known.

People play impromptu ArmA from time to time. Easiest way to find out is to check the Teamspeak or type '.server' in the Discord channel.

Posts flairs are to categorize what they are.

  • The light green color is for Arma 3 events.
  • Grey is for AARs that are usually made after events.
  • The dark green color is for announcements.
  • Blue is for training events.
  • The yellow color is for Special Announcements.

Yes.

We have very little in the way or a 'promotional policy' however there's a few important things to keep in mind.

We ask that you remain respectful and classy when posting CBB-related links. Don't spam subreddits with your videos, don't poach members from other groups, that sort of thing. If you're interested in helping recruit let us know.

There isn't any one person in charge of things. Organization and operations are carried out by a small group of users made up of some founding members of CBB as well as other active members of the community who are interested in making sure things run smoothly.

If you have any questions that are directed towards staff, you can send it through subreddit mod mail or you can ask a moderator on reddit or by using @admin on Discord.

Likewise, If you're interested in helping out at all please seek out a moderator on Discord.

Assuming we have compatibility between play styles, yes, we would probably be interested in doing joint ops with other groups or communities. Reach out to one of the subreddit moderators to organize a joint operation.

Yes, there is a mission suggestion box here.
