Please note: This site requires admin validation of accounts.  Please register ONCE and be patient.   Don't attempt to register multiple times!


Is there a minimum age requirement to join OCB?

18 or over please.  16 minimum based on maturity - over 20 preferred


Do I have to be an elite skilled player to join OCB?

No!  We seek people who are team players, of good character that enjoy playing the games we play.  Your level of individual skill in game is irrelevant to us, what is most important is that you want to work as part of a team and have a mature attitude (regardless of your age).  Your skill level will improve over time with experience and training, which will make the games more enjoyable for you.


Basically, we are noobie friendly!   We were all noobs at one time...


What other games do members play together?


OCB Members play a large number of other games together, including, Rising Storm 2 Vietnam, Arma III, Battlefield One and 4, Left for Dead 2, Flight Sim X, GTA IV/V, Mount & Warblade, Planet Side, Guild Wars 2, WoW, War Thunder, Eve, PayDay 2, Day of Infamy, Insurgency, Rocket League, UT4 and everything in between. It's normally safe to say that if you play it, someone else in OCB will also play it and they will want to get together with you online to play it.

Is OCB a Milsim Clan?


No.  We are informal, relaxed and open.   We have a rank structure based on experience, but we are not a milsim unit.



How active do I have to be?

We expect that you will make time to play with your team mates on a regular basis for the game you play. If you know you are going to be absent for an extended period, you need to let us know and you'll be moved to the inactive list until you come back. Prolonged absences without advice may result in dismissal.


Can I be in another clan, or stay in my old clan and still join OCB?

No.  We expect that if you want to join OCB that you are here to get into what we are doing and not divide your time between us and another community.

Can anyone apply to join?

If you are 18 or over, have a stable broadband connection, voice communications capability and you are not a jerk, we'd be happy to have you with us. 


What is the recruitment process involve?

1. You need to register an account on this site
2. You need to complete an application to join at the "Join OCB" under the "About Us" link at the top of the main web page.

It's a great idea to spend some time in game with us and use our Team Speak server (ts3.ocbservers.net)


While waiting for an answer!

a. Play on our servers for the game you play
b. Join our team speak server and get to know the OCB members
c. Be active in playing

If you do not do these things, it is unlikely your application will be successful.

How long does the recruitment process take?

Normally no longer than a week. If it is taking longer than a week, it may be because we haven't seen your around our TS or forums, and we may consider you've lost interest.

Is there a probationary period?

Yes. A period of not less than four weeks applies from join date.  This is just to make sure you are not in the "too tard basket"


How does the promotion system work?

Promotion in OCB is based on demonstrated ability to perform the responsibilities of a ranked position, time in service and dedication. We do not promote based on time in service alone, you must demonstrate those other qualities mentioned as well.
