Welcome to the 7th Cavalry

Take your time to inspect the enlistment Form. It's important that you try and input each field correctly, as it will save our staff many man hours down the line

Choosing Your Name

When you are choosing a name to enlist in the 7th Cavalry, you must choose a realistic forename and surname. This does not necessarily have to be your real forename and surname, but whichever names you choose to enlist with must be plausible.

You may NOT choose any of the following:

Historically important names
Cartoon names
Names of importance from novels, television etc
Religious names

An example of an appropriate name would be
Forename: Charlie
Surname: Smith

An example of an inappropriate name would be
Forename: Golden
Surname: Ranger

The 7th Cavalry Teamspeak 3 server is a private server owned and operated by the 7th Cavalry Regiment and it is used for communicating while in-game, meetings, training and a bunch more other things. When connecting to our server you will need the address and password which can be acquired many different ways. If you are a new recruit you will be given in your welcome letter. If you are a public player you can get the information from one of our servers from the broadcast or by asking a 7th Cavalry player.

What is Push-to-Talk (PTT) and how do I configure it?

What is a Phonetic Nickname and how do I configure it?

Phonetic Nickname is the name that describes your rank and your enlisted name when you join a channel. Without phonetic nickname when you join a channel it would just state the name you connect. For example, my login name is Beckett.A and when I enter a channel it would say Beckett.A has joined the channel. When I join a channel it would state Corporal Tidrow D has joined the channel.

How to configure a Phonetic Nickname:
  • Click on the Self menu
  • Select the Set Phonetic Nickname option
  • Enter your rank spelled out followed by your last name and your first initial
  • Example: Corporal Tidrow D

What is Discord?

Discord is a social application that is supported on web/desktop/mobile. Whilst it does support voice and video communication, we use it mainly as a text communication so that you can keep in touch with the community when not actively at your main computer.

Our Servers

We maintain several discord servers, but the key one to join is our core server. This is where all members congregate, and you'll find links to the other servers there as well. All our supported games have dedicated channels there which are also open to the public. So feel free to share the server URL with your friends!

Getting Server Permissions

During this forum migration, the automatic permission system is temporarily disabled. For now, just write a message in the forum-sync-help channel asking for your permissions. A cav member will help point you in the right direction.
