    Community Bulletin
        Benji's GoFundMe
            @Winters (Benji) has made a go fund me to raise funds to help him with his cat Ali's vet bills. Benji wrote "We can only guess that my cat Ali, 18 months old, was hit by a car on Friday 20th September. He suffered a dislocated tail, quite high up to quote the vet, which resulted in him spending 1 day shy of 2 weeks in the vets. Until the day before he came home I was pretty much expecting to have to have him put down, but over night he started to show signs of recovering. He's been back home since October 5th and seems comfortable and happy, playing with his brother Lemmy again, so his recovery is going well. However, with the length of time he spent at the vets the bills grew and though I have never used gofundme I guess I'm hoping there might be some kind individuals out there that would be willing to help cover the costs of this only." Please visit the GOFUNDME page and donate if you can.

    First ModCast Recording
    Once upon a time there was a meme, a meme born from our very own @Winters. A meme in which every non Moderator member would be muted and only the Moderators could speak. This meme has now become and official means of discussing information with our community- The ModCast. Last friday, @andyt90 @Legendo and @Garfield0003 hosted the very first ModCast Recording with great success. We expect it's release in the next INTREP issue so keep an eye out for that! If you'd like to participate in the next ModCast please watch the Calendar as upcoming recording dates will be posted there!

    How long have you been streaming? - About a year or so
    What games do you primarily stream? - Used to be anything and everything. Nowadays however it seems to be only Arma 
    When you do normally stream? - Also used to be whenever but now it's mostly just weekends
    Whats the goal for your channel? - There isn't really a point or a goal to it. I mean obviously it would be exceptional to make a living playing games and having fun with the audience but maybe in the distant future. Right now its "just something that I do from time to time"
    Any clips you'd like to share? - Orbital tank
    INTREP Schedule 
    As some of you may have noticed, the INTREP has not been released in approximately 3 weeks. While originally the PR team in tandem with the CM team wished for the INTREPs to be a weekly endeavor it's quite obvious now that a weekly release was just not working out. INTREPs will now be scheduled bi-weekly. This is for multiple reasons- Firstly being that with bi-weekly releases there is more to cover and therefore more content. Secondly as I (Rhea) work every other weekend IRL this allows for me to construct and finalize INTREPs on my time off without loosing sleep. Thirdly bi-weekly releases allow for larger topics to be featured on the front page for longer. I hope you all enjoy the larger INTREPs and don't mind the longer schedule. As always if you have any questions, comments, or ideas feel free to add them in the comments of this article or PM me directly!

    OperatorDrewski features FKGaming in "Beginner's guide to milsim"

    "FK does these really cool operations where they have these realistic, kinda milsim based operations on a very large scale." If a big YouTuber says this kinda stuff, he's got to be right. Right? A couple of weeks ago, we invited OperatorDrewski to join a few of our main missions. For those that don't know Drewski: he's a "certified Keyboard Operator. 700,000 weird nerds watch my videos", as he describes himself on Twitter. Drewski has created numerous videos about military games, airsoft and everything in between. His most recent video is a beginner's guide to milsim, and FKGaming is proud to be a big part of it.
    Don't forget to check out his other videos and to hit that subscriber button, or give him a follow on Twitter.

    As with previous YouTube content related to FKGaming, we might see a lot of new faces joining our forces soon. Don't forget to give them a warm welcome and to guide them to our "how to join" page.

    Airsoft meetup - Photoshoot (part one)

    Back in July, over 40 FK members gathered in the small town of Dorking, United Kingdom, for a two day airsoft meetup. In between games, the PR team grabbed a couple of FK members aside to immortalize their presence with a picture of two. This article will showcase a few of those members and we couldn't resist ourselves to ask them a couple of questions as well. Meet Silentgunner13, ThatWalder and NotConnor.

    Hi @SilentGunner13, when did you get into airsoft and what makes it so fun to do?
    I got into airsoft around March this year. I'd watched videos around it and always thought it looked like fun but never had the time or money. It was only at the start of this year that I started seriously researching the airsoft scene in Ireland and trying to get an idea of how much it'd cost to get myself set up. I played a few rental games early in the year. @Mittens then invited me down to play airsoft in Wicklow with him, @Whiskers and @SABER. This was the first big game I'd played in an outdoor venue with a gun that wasn't a crap M4/G36 rental (SABRE lent me his LVOA). I also rescued the cat brothers' boots from their mother's house on my way down which is a story in itself. After that I got my own RIFs and started playing a bit more seriously. Airsoft is fun to play for me because its therapeutic. Running around, looking like a badass/idiot/badass idiot and playing a game with a good team is a great way to shake off stress from the previous week at work. Especially when people come to the event with the right attitude and equipment such as radios... and brains. Plus its one of the only times in life where it is socially acceptable to magdump a minor without going to jail.
    As an experienced airsoft player, did you enjoy the FK airsoft weekend?
    I wouldn't say I'm 'experienced'. I'm somewhere around the amateur mark at this point. I don't even have UKARA yet.. however having done a number of games the FK event was fucking fantastic. You saw people from all across the spectrum (in more than one sense of the word) from the guys showing up in tracksuits and hoodies to the guys who've poured hundreds into their gear. But despite this disparity, everybody had fun. People called their hits, nobody got salty, and really it was just like an FK mission in real life with people doing stupid shit I.e. @Whiskers transitioning into a barrel and @Tobe picking a fight with a tree (and losing). Even the total newbies to airsoft got really into it. People really got into the spirit of the weekend and I don't think a single person left that weekend disappointed. I sure as shit didn't. I'd do it again next week if you asked me to... and paid for my airfare....and promised not to send @EHOPPPS to collect me.
    In a big way, I enjoyed the meetup because it was something different. I was getting tired of how monotonous my 9-5 life was getting, so when the opportunity to get shot at by a bunch of people who I've never met (but many I consider good mates) came about ? Fuck yeah, I'm doing that. For me though, the best part was seeing people help each other out. Like @Vesper Akiri helping people with weapon malfunctions or @mulletshock lending me a few spare mags on the Saturday and of course, the legend of @andyt90 lending me his absolute unit of an M16A2. Seeing everybody in person helping each other out, and most importantly, having a good time (especially at the pub) made me realise that despite the running joke about FK being a bit of a toxic community, it isn't in reality. It's filled with a bunch of fucking legends I'm proud to call friends, from all around the world. In fact, the meetup actually dispelled a few misconceptions and judgements that I had made about some people. The meetup just felt like a massive lads (and ladies!) holiday with a bunch of lovable nerds all there to have a good time, and I cannot wait for the next one

    Gear list
    The cap is Viper Tactical
    Weapon is a G&G TR16 (lent from @andyt90, magazines also lent from him) but have my own G&G Raider CM16 SRL and a WE P226
    Gloves are Highlander Raptor fingerless
    Plate Carrier is a an Olive Assault vest from GFC Tactical with mag pouches, IFAK, Radio pouch etc
    Shirt is an Olive UBACS from Magcomsen
    Radio is a Baofeng UV-5R
    Battle belt from bulldog tactical with util pouch, phone pouch, dump pouch and pistol holster
    Multicam trousers from Tacvasen with integrated kneepads
    Multicam Boots from Savage Island

    @ThatWalder, how did you get in to airsoft?
    I got into airsoft due to there being an airsoft society at the university which I attended (then dropped out of after 2 years). I got all my uni housemates into airsoft and the society was full a great group of light minded adults with a secret bloodlust and most of us where gamers at heart. We would go airsoft in a old world war 2 bunker on Tuesday nights and on the Sunday we would head to one of the local outdoor large sites.
    While others went full milsim, you went full slav. What's the story behind the outfit?
    I think I went full slav because a lot of us recently been playing a lot of Escape from Tarkov as a groups and we always seem to have a laugh. I didn't have many milsim gear or equipment but I have bits and bobs which I just scavenged together. So Scav Slav was born from that.
    Gear list
    Slav Walder
    Adidas striped tracksuit bottoms
    Adidas striped tracksuit hoodie
    Uskanka hat
    steel toe cap boots
    @Vesper Akiri's AK
    Other gear: South African Assault Vest, Olive Viper Long sleeve shirt, Nuprol olive half mask and Nuprol mesh eye pro (always wear protection kids)

    @Not Connor, we've got to ask the story behind your outfit. Were you inspired by something, or just felt like not going full camo?
    I was kind of inspired by a lot of what ive seen from PJs and PRs in the US special forces, just kind of looking serious and geared up and wearing a silly shirt (hawaiian) or otherwise, so its always been a thing to keep it serious but also have a bit of fun with it.
    What's your most memorable experience from the FK airsoft meetup, or the FK meetup in general?
    It was probably when @Tobe demolished the barrel in like the second game, or even the last game with him playing it in a cheerleader outfit.
    Gear List
    The carrier was a JPC style plate carrier with some mag pouches on the side as well as a dangler for some storage
    The most notable other things about the loadout would just be the holster (modified drop holster)
    Two toned CZ-P09 pistol by ASG
    The clothing was mostly cheap stuff i actually got for the meetup, stuff i didnt mind getting dirty and again going for a special forces kind of look where things like uniform and camo dont matter as much as style
    The rifle I borrowed from @mulletshock as well as the sling, but all other equipment used was mine.
    Which of the three outfits do you enjoy the most? Comment below ?

    Trainer’s Top Tips
    Zeus Tag Application & Evaluation system

But be aware that we expect people to understand the importance of good zeusing, so we will carefully examine the applications. Main requirement is to have Reg+ status in the community. Read More...

    Server Specs
    Although FK 3, 4 and 5 have been a part of fuck knows for months now, very few know much about the actual box. So for all you nerds out there here are the specs for the server hosting FK 3, 4 and 5.
    Location: Germany Provider: Hetzner CPU: i7-8700 Hexa-Core RAM: 64GB DDR4 OS: Win Server 2016 64-bit SSD: 2 x 512GB NVMe (Raid 1) A Word From Our Veterans
    I don't think that the Veterans in the discord channel thought I was serious when I asked them if they had any words they wanted to share in the INT_REP this week so this is the results I've gotten:
    "Be Better" -Sabre
    "Mullet Gey" -Katla_Haddock
    "Goodbye then. Be safe, Friend. Don't you dare go Hollow." - TheMinion
    "Stay the f*ck away from the tank." -BonSie
    "When the big bird is falling from the sky, run" - Trinoc
    What would you like to see in the next INT_REP? Comment down below!

    FK Squad server coming soon

    FKGaming is pumped to announce the development our very own Squad server. Squad is a tactical FPS trying to bridge the gap between lightweight arcade shooters and hardcore military simulators. Providing large scale, combined arms combat and authentic combat experiences. Achieve victory through teamwork, communication and tactical gameplay; making it a perfect fit for FKgaming's community mindset.
    Already back in November 2017, FKGaming hosted a Squad server during a free weekend on Steam. Although the game is still in Alpha, the growth of Squad has not gone unnoticed and will provide FK members with a military playground in a welcoming PVP setting. The upcoming release of our Squad server could not have better timing as the game is currently available for only $12 through Humble Bundle.
    We will announce the exact launch date in a future post, but we couldn't wait to share this server update with you. This also gives you plenty of time to buy Squad with a great discount through Humble Bundle, as the discounted price is only available until September 6th.
    The hosting of our Squad server does not increase our monthly donation goals, as it will be hosted on our current server box infrastructure. Depending on technical limitations, the closure of one of our less frequently used ARMA 3 servers is possible.

    (All Squad screenshots were kindly made available by Fokkehassel)
