What is our unit?
The Essex Regiment is a Second World War UK based unit that attempts to recreate a realistic portrayal of the British military during the mid 20th century period. We are a serious milsim, meaning that when on operations, members should be serious and follow designated procedures. The Essex Regiment focuses mainly on conventional warfare, meaning most missions will be lively and kinetic. Occasionally we may also perform counter-insurgencies and other less conventional operations.
The Essex Regiment uses a rank system based on the British Army during the Second World War period. In our unit, players will receive promotions and commendations based on their merit and dedication with the unit and not solely based on their role. This means that members will be rewarded for their knowledge and time devoted to the unit.
Who is our unit based on?
We are based on the Essex Regiment. It fought during many of the different campaigns throughout the Second World War. From the battle of France in 1940 until the fall of Germany in 1945. Our unit won't strictly follow all the campaigns followed by the Essex Regiment, but the unit will try to stick as close as possible while keeping gameplay fun and engaging.
The unit will undertake will follow a chronological order of events mirroring the events of the Second World War. Some of the campaigns the unit will undertake may not be strictly related to the actual campaigns the Essex Regiment conducted as we feel that campaigns such as Norway and Burma will allow for differentiation in combat and environment.
When do we play?
We have two events a week. We conduct exercises and training on thursdays at 2000 GMT (in summer this changes to GMT+1) and operations on sunday at 2000 GMT (again changing to GMT+1 in Summer).
How can I join?
If you're interested in joining our unit, you must be of 16 years of age or above. If you are below 16, it is possible that you may still join the unit but you must have a mature attitude. The interview process will take a bit longer as your place in the unit will be discussed with other interviewers. Be aware that if you are caught lying about your age after being accepted into the unit, you will be potentially removed from the unit. To join our unit, feel free to add and message one of our officers or alternatively come chat to us in our teamspeak:
Once you've shown interest in joining our unit, you will be asked to attend an interview at a time that is convenient for you. In this interview, you will be asked a variety of questions including your age, previous milsim experience and questions about yourself. Don't be discouraged by this interview process as it is more to find out more about you and where we think you would fit best. Once the interview process is complete, you will be accepted into the unit. You will be invited into the Steam group and be able to join the Essex Regiment in all its operations and other activities.
