We are a veteran-run, military-style, multi-game Company. You can expect a highly organized unit that provides training, teamwork, and a professional gaming attitude. Roughly half of our members are active-duty military, prior service, retired, and/or combat veterans. Note, a military background is *NOT* required. We are competitive, but we are not serious to the point of raging about it. We're in this game for competition and fun, not for role-play or e-peen wars. We don't care about your faction or other merc units; we care about having a good fight. Because we are competitive and organized, we do have minimum expectations for recruitment. See the TL/DR version immediately below.
Recruitment into BWC will require a small amount of commitment on the part of potential recruits:
1) Players must post a recruitment application on the BWC forums using the application template on the forums.
2) Players will be required to read and /sign the SOP (our charter), provided they wish to continue the recruitment process.
3) We require members to sign up on the BWC Operations Server and place their Fruit Salad signature banner in their forum profile (BWC forums only).
4) Playing whilst on Teamspeak3 is required.
5) Recruits will go through a two-week evaluation period where they are expected to be active, to play with the rest of us, and participate in a few events tailored to evaluation of new players.
If these basic tasks are beyond your comprehension, do not apply. We don't need you and we don't want you. We say this not to be elitist, but because you cannot put forth a minimum amount of expected effort to be more than a zergling recruit. Sorry, but that's how it goes - we require capable warriors. Not people who need their hand held. Don't get a case of mads - join, or not. Either way we'll still be fighting.
You can theoretically stop reading there if you hate reading walls of text. If you want to know more, keep reading.

EXTENDED CUT - ABOUT US:
BWC is an award-winning gaming company which has been around for ten years, mostly in first-person shooters and MMOs. In that time we have built a solid reputation in online gaming as a gaming Company that believes in integrity, fair play, and teamwork. We are active in multiple online games, most of them shooters. There is a dedicated chain of command, well over 300 active members, close to a thousand in our entire history across at least eight different official games, an established Battle Decorations program that allows members to earn awards, and a Standard Operating Procedure that serves as our charter and code of conduct. Members may enter as a recruit and remain at that rank if they wish, or they can "buck for promotion" - we have a rank system and promotion system that mimics the US Army's promotion points system. All of this is tracked via our forum and what we call the Operations Server or OpServ for short - where we plan out official operations in OPORDER format. Voice comms will be required; we use Teamspeak3 as our poison of choice.
Players who elect to sign on with BWC can expect to find their brothers-in-arms ready and willing to support them on the virtual battlefield. We practice teamwork, communication, and coordination. Our reputation as a military-style unit truly began in the world's first and only true MMO-FPS, Planeside. Ever since the closed-beta days we have applied lessons learned on the virtual battlefield as well as real-world battlefields from small unit tactics to combined arms assaults. We took those lessons a step further and are a renowned award-winning scenario paintball team up and down the east coast of the United States with a reputation for frontline grunts, hard-hitting spec-ops tactics, and a Never Quit attitude. Our professional reputation means that our service is highly sought-after by scenario woods ball generals at big-name big game scenarios. We apply this same mentality in every game that we play, without compromising our desire to have fun and blow stuff up. When you work with the BWC, even if you're not a member, you know you're getting a coordinated strike force that will not quit. And if you *are* a member, even if you're not the most skilled shooter you are a part of the team and help drive us to victory.
