March 2014 Cycle – Aug 2013 to present

There will be a new join cycle happening at the start of March. I’d originally planned this for February but had to postpone it a few weeks for various reasons. The expected join size will be between 20-40 people and will consist of people who applied from August of 2013 to March of 2014. We’re still operating as a primarily Arma 2 community, so if you’re looking to get in, bear that in mind. We’ll switch to Arma 3 at some point in the future, but there’s no ETA currently.

    I have been serving in the Army for 23 years and have three more to go. I have been watching you since i made it back to the states and love your group. I am looking for a group that like’s to have fun yet knows what it is to get the mission done. I have been solo most of my gaming time. Ether way keep up the videos and thanks for the laughs.

      Hey just a heads up, since it kinda sounds like you’re trying to join ShackTac (as am I), you gotta send in an email. More info here under “How to join”.

    Thanks for getting this information out! I’ve been roaming between Tactical Gaming groups trying to find the right one and would like to join the shack tac family in the future. I look forward to any possibility of talking to you in the upcoming weeks/months. Keep up the amazing videos, loving them!

    Hey Dslyecxi,

    You say that you will be using applications from last August, does this mean that people who have applied but got denied in the past should “re-apply” or will you just be looking at old applications. What I am basically trying to ask is: would it be better to hope you go over old emails, or just send a new email with a new application?

    I sent my application on the 1st of August 2013, just checking if it would be included in this cycle or was included in the last as its right on the cusp.

    I’ve been a long time subscriber to your channel on youtube and have loved keeping up with your videos and training sessions. I’m new to Arma2, I recently got it as part of the Bohemia Humble Bundle, I’ve been looking for a community to join as the public servers don’t quite cut it and I’d love to be part of some ‘serious fun’. Glad to hear you are taking on new members soon. I’ve got a particular love of helicopter piloting and have been using the T.Flight Hotas X Thrustmaster to great effect with Arma2 and Take on Helicopters, I’d love to get into piloting with ShackTac, but am happy to start at the bottom wherever new recruits are needed.

    Keep up the good work


  1. Dslyecxi,

    Unlike David above, I unfortunately didn’t purchase the Bohemia Interactive Humble Bundle. Drats! But in any case, I will soon be acquiring the requirements and submitting an application to join Shack Tactical. I want to say that I am thoroughly impressed with the group and the dynamics of the missions you carry out; there must be a huge amount of communication and coordination that isn’t necessarily seen in the videos. In the many years I’ve put into simulations, I’ve never seen anything like this outside of the actual military! I eagerly await meeting the requirements so I can submit my application. In the meantime, I sent you a friend request in Wargame: AirLand Battle, so if you’re up for a casual game, you can find me there.

    Yeah I’ve already apply my join app to dslyecxi’s gmail account. If it doesn’t come through this March then I didn’t mind for not making it to the ShackTac crew anyways. *shrug*.

    Sent in my application for the 4th time lol!

    Hope to get in. I am very dedicated to Arma though there are few dedicated communities that offer anything close to shacktac.
    Definitely no Communities out there that match ShackTac.

    Has there been any updates to this join cycle? I ask because the news post says that it was supposed to occur about a month ago. Im sure everyone wants to know if its still ongoing or completed so we can stop holding our breaths for the acceptance email or rejection news post.

    Thanks for all you do for the Arma community as a whole!

    You state that applications aug ’13 to march ’14 will be considered. Does that include applications submitted during march? I Sent my inquiry a couple weeks ago and would be really put-down if I missed the deadline…

  4. I am totally the guy that wants to follow up on his application and make sure you know, how badly i want this. looking forward to a follow up email, thanks for your time

    or Tim…oops!
