What is Enemy Boat Spotted?

Enemy Boat Spotted is a gaming community founded by Age (now Provoked Prawn), Spawnsy, and JackInTheGreen in 2007.
We certainly aren't a clan. We don't compete in wars or clan ladders, we are just a bunch of friends who enjoy playing games together. We don't take things too seriously but at the same time we don't approve of hackers or people who break the rules on our server or forum. Dirty players are not welcome and their techniques are discouraged. We are Gentlemen and we fight in a gentlemanly manner.

We are international. Sure most of us are from or live in the UK, but we have, or have had members from South Africa, America, Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Croatia, Hungary, Turkey, and Russia . We are proud of this fact. Everyone is welcome!

The name Enemy Boat Spotted came about because of fond memories from Battlefield 2 and maps such as "Strike at Karkand" where, when bored, people would "spot" Enemy Boats on the map in places where there clearly couldn't be any. It always made me laugh. Nearly as much as when they introduced infantry only maps and people would run about (over great distances) Spamming the call "I need a ride" or "hey! I need a lift!".

Anyway, "I need a ride" is a bit of a dodgy name for a community, so we went with "Enemy Boat Spotted". It's meant to symbolise the fact that we are here for fun and for a laugh. Not taking it too seriously like some clans.

At one time we had over 750 members and 5 different game servers running but it was too problematic and difficult to manage. We don't want or need lots more members so we don't have a flashy forum designed to impress. We seek quality, not quantity, substance, not style. We value integrity, honesty, and openness.
We like being small and knowing most of the members. We're friends who look out for one another outside of gaming. We use discord to play games together for which the community does not run it's own server. We take breaks and come and go as we please, but this is home.
We have a party once a year in August. We call this "The meet". Look it up on the forum. It makes our virtual a reality. EBS is real.

This forum is our place to chat about anything and everything. If you are reading this and thinking that you would like it to be your home too, then we want you! Read and follow the instructions in the other sign up post and say hello, then poke about, see if anything makes you laugh, smile or frown and reply to it. Feel free to post your own stuff too. We like reading things and we love new members :)
To prove that you've read this, please end your introduction on the forum with this line: EBS is real.

You don't have to play any games to be a member. If you just want to read the jokes, or talk with people about music and films, that's great!

Thanks for you time. Enjoy your stay!
