Where do you see I am telling you what to do ? It is the exact opposite, I'm telling you that you are free.
You are free to stay or free to go. Free to think we are idiots, but not free to insult and be agressive to anyone. Your liberty is only limited to where other one's begin, be you a warrior or a asshole won't change anything

And I am not sure at all that the the aim of EBS is to get bigger and bigger. This would just be a consequence, certainly not a reason

1.this is a friendly gaming community and not a clan 2. The way we recruit new members the way we do is to see if you're going to fit in as well , I have been living with disabilities since 1980 but I don't use it to become aggressive. 3 there are several other members who are all ex forces and like to get on with the rest of us and use gaming to relax.

we don't need to grow our community. that is not our goal, though people who fit right in are welcome.
our sign up process is designed purposely to identify people who can't really be arsed. if they can't be arsed then they don't care that much. if they don't care that much then we can't be arsed with them. it's a simple test, and i'm sure you can see you failed it fairly spectacularly.
your aggression coupled with your desire to join up and then immediately make changes means that you won't get membership anyway.
feel free to wear whatever tags you like. it really makes no difference to us, but aggressive hollow threats/ultimatums are not going to make you any friends, or make large groups of strangers like you, much less heed your demands.
if you carry on using our server then you'll be subject to the rules as usual, with the one caveat that if you don't behave you won't get any warnings before you're banned permanently and without the chance of appeal. that's if the lads haven't done it already. i couldn't say for sure as i don't run the bf server and i don't interfere.
it might be a truly wonderful thing for you to start your own community. it's worthwhile and rewarding i can assure you. if you already know a few people who would join then ask if they would like to pool some money together and rent a server. we started ten years ago with 3 guys.
vets support clan? vsc
vets tour of rehab? vtr
retired pro's? rp
the rebuilt regiment? rr
idk, but the possibilities are endless. you don't have to have a forum, just a bunch of mates who game together regularly. allow it to grow and develop organically. you will naturally attract people who fit with yourselves.

Yeah, some people think that we make it difficult because it's not just a quick link and done. But that means we mostly only those who fit in. Mostly. Even then we have a proby period for the very reason you've just shown.

Sorry our Community is not right for you, but it's right for us. Thanks for your feedback, it just shows we've got the balance about right. Have a look for a chap called Defiance Duck. He runs a BF clan which I can't remember the name of, sorry. I think you'll fit in with him. Best of luck.

Yeah, this community must be kept friendly and polite, not big, just think on what happens when a lot of people enters on a Whatsapp group with no control :/ it ends on a mess of people that dont know the others and with the group going offtopic.

Im on probation, but during this time and due the presentation on forum, I know a bit more about my teammates, so I don't play with complete strangers.

The gaming name register, makes the other people recognise you on other platforms, If you want to keep you hide on Habbo Hotel, just don't post it ;D

With discord I can ask for server space when its full! :D

Because the server rules, I finished a lot of maps on this high level of difficulty we have.

And due how the people behaves im enjoying the gameplay and the stance here.

So if you try to follow the instructions, you understand why is like this after a while :B

Im not criticizing Swiss, just hoping my point of view can help you integrate more here. And if it does not help, sorry :$
