IrishRanger Re-introduction

Posted (edited)

Hi guys,

Its IrishRanger, from the 2014 - 2015 era as far as i remember, was a long ass time ago that i joined so i cant recall exactly but I hope to make a return for the ARMA 3 server release as I have not discovered a better community in ARMA and i should have a powerful computer by then. I hope to reconnect with old faces ( as making new friends requires effort ;) ) and i recall fondly the good ( and the not so good ) times I experienced a couple of years back in this persistent community.

About me: ( some parts may be inaccurate due to having a bad memory )

I have no exact timeline but when i joined British Borders first, it was just through clicking servers on ARMA 2 OA, it was my first experience of a good roleplay server that had interesting people and who were welcoming enough for me to stick around.

The first experience i recall is of SERCO PMC, led by Maverick and Pierce at the time, and it involved a PM protection mission with all the old SERCO veterans before me. One of the only times i got to experience the old SERCO. I enjoyed it and eventually after a couple of tryouts with the different factions on the server i settled with SERCO. There was far too many missions to recall any in particular, but i do remember kicking ass and being slightly edgy with Pierce, the outspoken, crazy, experienced PMC member who continued SERCO once Maverick left it to pursue other things on BB.

Many members passed through SERCO when me and Pierce took charge, as it required a certain level of skill and competency ( or luck ) and Pierce had some high standards, of which i somehow met. Eventually Pierce became inactive due to a broken pc ( or he may have given it to somebody else ) and with Mavericks permission i became SERCOs Head of Security. With a limit of 15 - 20 agents maximum, you couldnt just recruit anybody who walked in. We continued to practice rigorous interviews and questioning for any BB member interested in joining, aswell as providing alot of hands on training. 

Eventually we had a crew of experienced SERCO operators comprised of people like myself, Grumpyteddybear, Matt, Jon, Noah, Scrub, Scrumpy, Adam, (edit: HOW DID I FORGET TOM) and more ( names i do not recall ). The SERCO lineup tended to change often but during this time I believe the quality never faltered. We competed against 2 other PMC factions and eventually surpassed these factions leading the administration on the server to disband these other PMC factions.

Aside from SERCO, I also achieved the rank of Moderator on the server.

Eventually I lost interest in ARMA due to playing it for a long time, and left BB to pursue other games, notably Mount & Blade : Warband Napoleonic Wars which has consumed my life lmao.

Summary:

- Irish

- Former SERCO Head of Security

- Former Moderator

- Plans to return soon
