Hope everyone has a good holiday season. One of my brothers best high school friends was killed in Iraq on this day in 2006. Enjoy the family you have at the holidays. Never know when something like that will happen. [link]
We are a two tiered community. Syndicate Seven was formed 7 years ago by Viper and Triburst. The first life of Syndicate Seven was competition based with a focus on real world military tactics applied to the digital battlefield. The original competition team played in various games ranging from Battlefield 2142, Call of Duty (pc), Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, and other games considered at the time to be "realistic”. With the news that Planetside 2 was about to launch Viper and Triburst decided to re-brand Syndicate Seven into Septem Pro Vita which is Latin for "Seven for Life”, and served as the S7 Team motto. With the subsequent release of ArmA 3 we reinvented Syndicate Seven into our second community.
Now that you have knowledge of our past, this is what we are now; Syndicate Seven is our casual community of adult gamers with the like mind of having fun and just enjoying the flow. They play all sorts of games ranging from MMO's to FPS's, Survival games, and tactical shooters. The only requirements to join Syndicate Seven are being 18 years old and have a mature attitude. We do not tolerate trolls. Syndicate Seven members have no time or training requirements. However, they are allowed to sit in and observe SPV training. Syndicate Seven members do not have a say on any major team issues regarding training or team direction.
Septem Pro Vita is the Core of the community. They are trained as "Spartans” with the mindset to rise above any challenge presented. This means that SPV will always be together, much like the Phalanx of Sparta. "We fight together and we die together", is the motto quoted most often by the instructors. SPV holds training every Tuesday and host the weekend ops in Arma3. More than half of SPV are either active or retired military . This includes our lead training officer who was a Marine instructor. They think as a cohesive unit and work together closely to overcome any adversary. This is the elite branch of the community where only activity and contribution are rewarded. This means that Ranks are a badge of training level and dedication to the team. Seven for Life means just that. Those who are accepted into SPV are joining a brotherhood of friends and teammates that has lasted through years of different games and training. Even the lowest ranks in SPV are better trained than most players out there and command respect on the battlefield because of the knowledge they possess. Within SPV there is the leadership of the team, the Generals. They listen to the voice of SPV membership and decide the direction of the team's training and also what games the community will focus on.
Does any of this sound interesting to you? Do you want to be a part of a growing community that has such a dedicated group of leaders? Whether you want to run in tight formations with a group of friends that you know have your back or just want to get on and have some fun with other mature adults, S7 or SPV could be just what you've been looking for!
