The policy on participation in Rolling Thunder is quite open, however, due to the low frequency of the events and the effort put in it to provide these high-quality and exclusive gaming experiences, some requirements are present.Conditions for registration / participation:

  • Have an original copy of Arma 3
  • Have TS3 with a working microphone
  • Be able to be present at the required time, with the required systems installed and tested. Coming late and/or having things not prepped in advance is a no-no here
  • Be able to independently (find out how to) install and run addons. RT does not have dedicated tech-support during battles and we expect people to have their system sorted before hand
  • Be able to play in a very high level of teamwork
  • To have a mature and responsible attitude
  • Be able to bring a positive addition to the event

In order to make it possible to have balanced, motivated and organized teams, participation on Rolling Thunder requires slot reservation in advance.You can sign up a group of players or as an individual. Other then that it is appreciated, especially if you are signing up as tank crewman, that you have some form of basic skills in operating ArmA  tanks. Same goes if you want to sign up for AT, you need to have skill in using various mobile and stationary AT weapons/vehicles.
