Who and what we are:
1AR was historically Australia's first Armoured Tank regiment. The spirit of comradarie and mateship in battle are the core foundations of the 1AR clans and the reason for our existence. Although today we have 4 clans across 2 different servers and players from all around the world, the one thing that has not changed is our focus on having a stong family environment, to be a dominant fighting force in our time zones, and to have lots of fun together. These are the ideals you are expected to uphold as a member of any 1AR clan.
The 1st Armoured Regiment or 1AR is a collection of clans across the SEA and NA servers. The clans are made up as follows:
North American Server:
* 1AR - The main clan, must have T8 H/M/TD or T7 SPG AND be regularly active in game on weekends. Usage of the clan forums and teamspeak is required.
* 1AR-R - The reserves clan, for those members with lower level tanks or not regularly active on weekends. Usage of the clan forums and teamspeak is encouraged but not required.
South East Asian Server:
* 1AR-X - Predominantly AU/NZ members, currently no tier limits are enforced but you must be active in game at least 1-2 days a week. Usage of the clan forums and teamspeak is required.
* 1AR - Members from across South East Asia. Must have T7 H/M/TD or T6 SPG and you must be active in game at least 1-2 days a week. Usage of the clan forums and teamspeak is encouraged but not required.
What will joining 1AR do for you?
As an organisation we believe in strong communication and a family environment inside our individual clans and across the clans as a whole. We strongly emphasise use of voice comms to engage with other members and generally have a lot of fun together on comms. We provide both 1 on 1 and group training opportunites for members to learn new tanks tactics and skills, and have our own wacky games we play in training battles on a weekly basis to help alleviate the grind and mix things up. In short we are here to have fun and enjoy ourselves as well as challenge ourselves to be better tankers.
On the NA server we participate in Clan Wars landings on Saturday and Sundays at the moment, and are looking to expand to weekdays as well as we recruit more US time zoned members into the clan, a process which is ongoing at the moment. On the SEA server we participate in weekly Tournament events in lieu of clan wars. On both servers we run regular company battles and have nightly platoon count-ins where we time into the queue with multiple platoons at the same time, we also run training battles time to practice specific map strategies.
We have a teamspeak server capable of hosting many users that gets good pings from around the world, and a large and diverse player background across all our clans. We have around 200 members spread across the four main clans on the NA and SEA servers.
A summary of 1AR & our rules:
(more detailed information can be found at our website)
Commander - Head of an individual clan.
Deputy CO - Assistants to the Commander.
Diplomat - Public point of contact for the clan.
Recruiter - Recruits new members for the clan.
Field Commander - Our military leaders, organise Clan Wars (NA) & Tournaments (SEA).
Captain - Senior members of the clan - organise platoons and help new members.
Sergeant - Normal clan member, semi-active on forums and teamspeak.
Private - New recruit to the clan or inactive members.
We are a clan comprised primarly of adults, however this is not a requirement to join. As you will be playing with ppl well into their 50's+, all members are expected to be mature and polite in their conduct toward other members. Act like an adult, and you will be treated as such. If you can abide by this we welcome you regardless of your age, if you cannot be mature no matter what your age you will not be welcome in 1AR clans.
Teamspeak is here for everyone to use, be mindful that your idea of "kosher" may not be the same as everyone else in the room. Breaking the "kosher" rule will result in a warning. You will only ever receive 2 verbal warnings. The 3rd will be via PM as your permissions will be removed from the 1AR teamspeak server for a period of 1 month and you may be removed from the clan in serious cases. We don't expect everybody to get along, thats why teamspeak is a large place with many channels, use them.
