Our Definition of Military Simulation

Ghosts of Battle is a Military Simulation unit. The meaning of this tends to vary within the ARMA community there are many units offering competing levels of tactical realism and bureaucratic simulation.

To us this means that we use proper military tactics while in game, we do have rank, but primary to define roles within the game we do not desire or expect saluted or to be called sir.

Our definition of Military Simulation

To help you evaluate our play style:

    • View is restricted to first-person, except when in vehicles.
    • Advanced ACE Medical Simulation with KAT
    • ACE Advanced Medical is used, with an Advanced CPR mod.
    • Gear is handled via a restricted arsenal, available in-mission at deployment zones.
    • Re-spawns and join-in-progress is generally allowed, and handled by Zeus.
    • In addition to the server mod list, some client-side modifications are allowed.
    • Personal Arsenal is not allowed under any circumstances.
    • In Game abilities are assigned based on the training you have attended
    • Support services such as artillery and CAS require skill and training to utilize

Real Life Comes First

We understand that ARMA is just a game and as such you might not always be able to attend. We never want you to be in a position where you are sacrificing your real life activities to meet our requirements and we implement strong redundancy plans at every level of the chain of command so that absence does not affect the wider group.

However, we also encourage you to think about the good of the unit when you need to be absent and consider stepping down from your position to take a Leave of Absence in the event that life takes an unforeseen turn.

Please just communicate, use the discord so that as a unit we have proper expectations.
