    Afternoon Steel.

    Rather than diving straight in to a company, it may be prudent to simply spend a few hours playing during active hours and see whom stands out the most to you. There are many fine companies both North and South but you must find the one that fits the best.

    Warmest regards.

    Hello Steel.
    I wholeheartedly agree with Leifr - try before you buy. You will, I'm sure, have a shed load of recruiting e-mails flying your way by now. Do a little research and try some groups out, and try not to get annoyed with over zelous recruiters - it can happen.

    The whole time difference thing can be a little awkward. Most companies have a strong US slant which means that many of the biggest events for them take place around 01.00 UK time - often well after my Bo-Bo's. However, on Fridays to Sundays, many of the US-centric Companies put in a strong turnout from around 19.00 UK time and of course there is a rapidly growing EU side to the game, which is much more GMT friendly.

    I'm not aware of any UK specific Companies at present - but there are plenty of Brits (or Scots/Irish/Welsh/Cornish if you prefer) scattered around various Companies, both North and South. I'm sure with a little patience and a bit of research, you'll find a great home within the game.

    Best wishes from a fellow Brit,
    John Jones

    Hello Steel, from reading you’re looking for a realistic community on War of Rights, if so the 6th Louisiana Tigers are the ones for you, while we’re “based” in North America we have players from all at the world, England, Brazil, Germany, America, Australia, Netherlands, and that’s to name a few. We would love to have you with us, friend me on Steam, II[6thLA]Lt.RgtRcr Cowles or Discord, Chris_#5840 about enlistment or if you have any questions about ur or even the game.

    We as a group focus on EU players, we have evenly as many Brits as we have Germans and French that and people from different other EU countries. We are looking for friendly players and your experience from ArmA is very welcome for our group as we are growing and will be in need of people that can handle a rank.

    Leifr and I share the same mind on this, that people should skirmish a few times with a company before volunteering. My company is self-described as "principled and professional" so please do feel free to fall-in with the 6th Louisiana Infantry.

    On Union side I would look at 42nd PA or 95th NY. Both very active, UK/EU based and well-led.

    These guys are great if you're looking for Union regiments, if you're looking for a confederate company, I would suggest 1st Texas Company E. Its our EU company with most of its members being British.

    Everyone zealously recruits so it is definitely a Buyer's Market.
    As my ISG Jones suggested it can often be of great benefit to take your time and do the research.
    Checking recruitment threads, reading the unsolicited recruitment mails, attending events ... it can all seem a bit overwhelming but ...
    it is well worth your effort, time and patience.

    Always remember that you are looking for a True Home with Loyal Brothers.
    Finding the unit that fits your needs and play style the first time will save you from a lot of angst and unhappiness down the road.

    Good Luck ... Good Hunting ... and Ask as many Questions as you need along the way.
