What is GC?

Postby Cheesy » Wed Dec 07, 2011 4:20 am

Global Conflict is a Battlefield tournament community which has been around since BF1942. We've organized tournaments with all the BF games and many mods, and we're now playing the latest release of the franchise, Battlefield 4.

Have you ever wished BF4 could be something more? Hate it when you join a squad but everyone just does their own thing? Do you wish your team would work together, fight for something big, and defend every flag to the very last drop of virtual blood? Then GC is the place for you!

Every Saturday, 2 armies fight, 32v32, on our private BF4 servers. Battledays last 6 hours, but you can come and go as you please. Standard battle time is 10am-4pm PST / 1pm-7pm EST / 1800-Midnight GMT / 19:00-01:00 CET. We also have optional practices throughout the week.

:arrow: WHAT IS IT?

A whole new way to play Battlefield 4. We turn each BF4 map into a small battle in a larger war. We are NOT a clan. Instead, when you join GC you are placed in one of two armies. Each army has a strict hierarchy, with a general at the top and several squads with their own captains, lieutenants, etc. Every Saturday, these two armies clash in a 6-hour battleday for control of territories on the campaign map. It's like playing Risk, where every dice roll is a round of BF4.

A GC battleday turns BF4 into a whole new game. Squads work together to hold flags and capture new objectives. Generals give orders, and captains coordinate their troops to get them done. In GC, your teammates always have your back -- your squad will heal you and supply ammo, air support will blow up tanks, and high command will send backup when your flagzone gets hot.

After each day, captains assign medals and promotions based on teamwork, skill, and leadership. You'll join as a private, but dedicated players quickly rise through the ranks to lead squads and armies. Each campaign lasts 2-3 months (and longer if the fighting is close!), at which point we choose new high commands and draft new armies. We've been playing this way for about 12 years, and since Battlefield 1942 we've run more than 20 campaigns.


(note that if you wish to play in an army, once you have created a forum account you must also sign up for the draft here!)


:arrow: CAN I PLAY?

Yes! Global Conflict is open to anyone! Our players come from all over the globe, and we welcome all ages, genders, and skill levels. The only requirements are 1) Battlefield 4, 2) Teamspeak and a microphone (see getting started), and 3) enough English to understand orders.

However, GC is not for everyone. You have to be willing to follow orders, sacrifice for the team, and play nice with others. We don't care about your rambo skills or sniper chops if you can't spot enemies, capture flags, or defend chokepoints. And of course, anyone caught hacking will be banned immediately.

Best of all, it's completely free! We've never charged a penny to play, because we have an incredible community that's been playing together since BF1942. Our servers are paid for by donations, and the tournament is run by dedicated volunteers.
