In Game Nickname: Septimus
Steam Profile Id: Septimus68
Discord Name: Macstu23#1384
Real Name: Stuart
Date of Birth:
Country & Nationality: Scotland, UK
Current/Previous Squads: None. This is the first Arma 3 squad I've applied to join.
Reasons for applying to VCB: So far my only experience of the Arma games has been in singleplayer, and I realised some time ago that joinng a good mutiplayer team would be the best way of experiencing what the game can offer. I have therefore been looking to join a Team team of mature players (preferably in the UK timezone) who take a 'realistic but fun approach', and who aren't too off-putting with the demands they might make on new members. I've had enough experience of multiplayer guilds/squads/teams in other games to know that this can often be very hit or miss.
I first became aware of VOLCBAT via Youtube, and was impressed by the professionalism on display. A quick Google search led me to the VOLCBAT website, and after reading the main intro and Info Pack for new recruits, I was heartened to discover that VOLCBAT's team ethos of realism without the bollocks mirrors my own attitude toward online gaming.
The Wednesday/Sunday 8pm time allocations suit me perfectly, as I work relatively normal hours plus the occassional Saturday. What I hope to bring to the table for VOLCBAT, is my maturity, my keeness to learn throughout the recruitment process, be an active team player who above all listens and pays attention, but also knows when to have a laugh. It may also be worth mentioning another reason I was attracted to this group is that my Grandfather served in the Royal Marine Commandoes during WW2, though sadly I never got to know him, as he died in 1953.
