Join process updates for the start of 2013

Minimum age

Starting this year, I’ve established the age of 18 as the minimum age at which one can apply to Shack Tactical. I’ve done this in response to the simple reality that, while I do not contest that <18yr old members can be successful, it is more time-efficient for us to recruit players at that age and above. If you’re under 18 and are interested in the group – simply wait until you hit the right age and send in an application then. We’ve been around for over seven years at this point, after all – hopefully another seven are in the books as well. Thanks for your understanding in this matter.

Other news

As to the general join process for 2013 – I anticipate doing a join batch every other month, likely starting in February. I will post again when I do the next cycle or have additional news on this front.

    Three years to go. More like two and a half, but still. I hope it’s still around by then.

      Ha you get that faster than me.I have 3-4 years to go….. Fortunately by then I finish Secondary and would start university and hopefully more manageable time for this.
      Still is there really lots of under-18 applications? I don’t expect that much application flooding in. Maybe having extra members for screening and optimizing the community’s operation for a constantly growing member list world be a better option in the long term?
      Meanwhile might go to other realism units to have fun.

    Glad to hear you are still recruiting, was worried that it had ceased for the time being.
    Also happy to hear that my chances may have increased due to the age requirement.

    I see that there are a lot of people upset that they are not old enough to join Shack Tactical. Think about it this way. When you turn 18 you should be off to a form of higher education. College for example. When you are at college your entire life gets turned upside down, for better or worse. Shack Tactical is limited in space in their clan and that is understandable. They could go and recruit mature 18 year olds but they run a risk still. When at college or at least starting out in college you have little time to do time to spend in long game play. You also might change your desire to even play Arma or even video games when away at college. I know some of the things I liked back in High School I stopped caring for when I went away. So adding a minimum age is usually for the best and no one should take it personally.

    Man I have played all the ACE and realism but to be part of such a awesome community I want it so bad please let me in! So sick of how people choose to play arma(public servers) and the way IT’S meant to be played by Shack Tac.
