Firstly, a warm welcome to our website. At British Borders we are not just your typical Arma 3 role play community. By bringing together players from around the globe, who share our passion for role play, our members become part of our story and are proud to call us home.
We continue to forever challenge the conventional norms that so many Arma communities have come to accept, continuously raising the bar and setting the standards. Our extensive list of features, along with our fantastic user friendly website and our committed staff team, help to deliver an enjoyable, unique and lasting gaming experience.
We would invite you to join us and become part of that experience.

NEW RULES WILL BE ADDED IN DUE COURSE.
British Borders aims to be the number one Tanoa Life server in the world. In order to achieve this we maintain a high standard of roleplay and have a set of rules which all players must adhere to.
The community staff team has the responsibility of strictly enforcing the rules below to ensure that we only attract the best players who wish to share with us a fantastic roleplay experience. If you are told anything other than what is outlined in our official rules please ignore it.
Our ethos is quite simple. We welcome anyone to join our community on the basis that they: firstly - role play to the highest possible standards; secondly - are respectful to all players in our community and finally apply common sense to every scenario.
