Welcome to the 3rd Infantry Division forums! May I be the first to greet you and thank you for taking an interest in the 3rd ID. It is my top priority to point you in the right direction and help ensure your readiness to become a member of our Planetside 2, tactical realism unit.

Making a Good First Impression

I stress the necessity of using Steam, Discord, and these forums for obtaining information and communicating with the unit. In particular, we use Discord as our main social platform. The 3rd ID is home to many kinds of people, and regardless of if we are playing a game or not, we can always be found hanging out on Discord. If you do not have Discord, please download it for free at https://discordapp.com/. In addition, this is our server address: https://discord.gg/JFeDEEp.

Along with making an attempt to be active on Discord, it is important that all enlistees show their commitment to the 3rd ID by doing their best to attend drill sessions in Planetside 2 every Wednesday and Sunday night at 8 PM EST. These sessions last anywhere from 1-2 hours, and consist of tactical, team based play facilitated by our chain of command.

Your Enlistment Application

As a prospective enlistee, you are also required to post your enlistment papers in a separate thread in this forum. In a new thread (click the New Topic button), fill out the following template (remove the []'s when you write your response). Please be as descriptive and informative as possible. Remember, first impressions are extremely important at this stage in the enlistment process!

Also, please note that newly registered forum members will notice that before being able to submit their post, they will have to answer a CAPTCHA and 2 security questions. These security measures are in place to further prevent automated spam bots from posting. This will only last for the first couple of posts, and will then be removed as you pass a certain threshold. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you are uncomfortable with posting certain information please specify on the application (in the relevant field) "Withheld". Also, we do not discriminate based on age. We are primarily looking for maturity and willingness to contribute.

Closing Comments

I recommend that you reread the other stickies in this forum and make sure you've got a good grasp on their content. These posts will serve to prepare you and give you a better idea of what is to come.

"Multi-Clanning" is strongly discouraged in the 3rd ID. Our unit's longevity is attributed to the devotion of our members. Please consider what the 3rd ID is asking of you and what you are willing to contribute.

Finally, I wish you good luck! The 3rd ID is a fantastic unit with years of history to it and we are happy to include you.
