Comrades in Arms hosts co-op nights for serious team players on every Wednesday at 20:00 CET. During summer, daylight-saving time will be in effect. If you are uncertain of the current server time check it here. The server is online 24 hours, 7 days a week in either FDF-BAS or WGL modes.
CiA have been running serious Flashpoint games for the past six years. We are mostly known for our strict but simple modus operandi during our missions. There are no trainings or role playing; we concentrate on the coop and the ways to complete it, no more, no less. We choose a commander, we lay out a plan, and during its execution we follow the team leader's orders carefully. In spite of that, the atmosphere is light and calm. Every one, including guests, can lead in our games. However, once a leader was chosen everybody are expected to do exactly as he says.
In order to assure serious team play the server is password protected. Until now, the server was open for all that have the addons but lately, an over flux of players have brought immature behavior to coop nights. Thus, the old password is in use again. The password will be provided to those who will show, outside the official coop night a grown and productive way of playing. If you posses the password, please don't forward it to anyone else.
CiA Server Rules
If the leader gives you orders, follow them at all costs, even if it may seem senseless in your eyes. This also requires that each unit knows their number so you will know which order is addressed to you. Orders are given either via Teamspeak, OFP's built in commands, or in the text chat. You should be attentive to all of these comm channels.
2. Reporting Back
If the leader addresses you, respond. If you have been given an order report 'Roger' so the leader will know that you have received and understood it. Upon completion of the assigned task report 'Ready'.
Stick with the formation unless told otherwise. Even numbers should be to the right hand side of the leader, while Odd numbers to his left. If the main squad is split up into smaller squads, each squad moves as an independent team, led by an assigned secondary leader.
Stay focused on the map. Know where you and possible friendly units are to avoid friendly fire.
Don't open fire without being ordered. Before firing on a unit, check the map for friendly units! Also right-click will help, but not always. Rather be shot by an enemy than shooting a friendly!
Don't chat if it has nothing to do with the current combat situation. Dumb comments result in overfilling the chat space, thus no one realizes when important orders are given. Switch to group chat during missions, if you aren't leading.
This is the last and most important rule: Concentrate. We don't forbid joking, but once a mission has started, stay serious, calm and focus on the game!
Everyone who doesn't follow one or more of these rules will be asked to leave.
Finmod, BAS addons and some more addons are in use. Please do not attempt to connect to the server without them installed. All the addons are available for download in an easy to install single pack from the CiA website addons page.
