Bristol area, UK

Previous Planetside experience:
Planetside 2 for circa 6 months: not played PS1 sadly.

Outfit history (if applicable):
With LUNA until recently: good outfit, but largely inactive now (they have a few members that still log in here and there once a week but that's about it as most of them have moved on to other games). Joined them as they were all friends of a RL mate of mine (also left game). Made the decision to leave if it went a full month without managing to seeing a single outfit-mate online...

Other (online) games you have played / achievements:
Oh god, too many to list over the years. DAoC, WAR, CS, CSS, DoW, DoW2, L4D 1/2, the list goes on and on!
Personal favourite achievement: the organised DAoC 'Bomb' group I ran once killed 63 people that were attacking a structure (Keep) in under 6 seconds... :)

Do you have a mic? Yes/No:
Indeed! (Yes)

What you hope to bring to BRTD:
Support: Aircover, Medic, Engineer, Sense of humour, whatever's needed really. I'm pretty laid back all things considered: gaming is my escapism, I leave the drama on this side of the keyboard and I don't have time for those that don't!

What made you choose this outfit over any other organized outfit?
Good question, seem like a good outfit that's organised, chilled out and (hopefully) has a minimum of angry 14 year olds! I've shadowed some of your ops in my Mosquito a few times providing air cover. English as primary language, sensible rules, no ridiculously high playtime requirements (sometimes I log a lot of time i.e. 20+ hours in a week, sometimes I barely make 2 if i'm away on business travel!).

How did you hear about Better Red Than Dead
Website, forums, word of mouth, shadowing a few of your Ops in my Mossie!

What is your preferred play style: Infantry/Armour/Aircraft?
I play all three in any given session, but primarily Air or Infantry (I do take great pleasure in Skyguard Lightning however!). My Mossie is certed except for the last rank in Defense, my Medic and Engi are mostly certed also (highest ranks in respective tools).

Anything else you'd like to add:
Not really: I'm not one for self-aggrandising and blowing my own trumpet (frankly, if I could I wouldn't be playing computer games: if you don't get that joke, you're too young to have it explained to you!).

Your battle Rank:
Mid 50's, I forget exactly what now (54?)

Planetside 2 Statistic :!/playerID

Note: I have AMS Sundy, but not L1 Spawn Beacon it seems: i'll make this a priority purchase, might even have enough certs spare for it now...

Welcome to BRTD

I would like to take the time to welcome you as a trial member of BRTD! You have been accepted on a 2 week trial basis which is a standard procedure for all new recruits. It is required that you download Mumble which we use for voice communication. You will be sent a private message on this website with mumble details as soon as your application is accepted, for information on installing mumble please go here:

Please start using Mumble within the next week so the officers can register you and get you into the thick of BRTD operations. When you first log onto mumble you will not have the proper rights to move from the lobby, as such just hold tight there and someone will pop up and welcome you to the outfit and get you started. If you have any trouble please consult the FAQ section: or ask an officer who will be happy to assist you. If for any reason you cannot log onto mumble within a week of your application submission, just send which ever officer accepted your application a message on the BRTD website saying why so we don't remove you due to inactivity.

All relevant information of the many events we run in BRTD can be found here:

Training nights are on Thursday and Sunday at 8pm GMT where we take you through tactics BRTD use and make sure you know the basics so you can enjoy the game as much as we do.
