    Applications to the Soviet Faction are going to be specifically catered not around previous experience with WW3RP, or your experience with military roleplay, but instead your ability to create a character who is believable and well developed. Although you do not have to be an historian to by any means, being familiar with our lore and the history / ideology of the USSR and its military does help in the cause of creating a believable character. Your application will be judged primarily on your ability to write and your creativity. You will be joining this faction, not because you desire the familiar S2K experience of old WW3RP, but instead you wish to engage in a more guided militaryRP experience, and that you want to play a character. Although I will be taking your previous record and experiences into consideration when looking at your application, I am willing to look past some minor past grievances if you put substantial effort into your application.

    How is your activity? / How would you rate your interest in Stasiland?:

    Any previous infractions at the community? If so, can you explain?:

    Previous WW3RP / RP experience:

    How familiar are you with the Soviet Union (ideology, history etc.)?:

    Are you aware of the new concept? What are some of the differences between this iteration of WW3RP and the old one?:

    What do you think this faction will be doing on the server?:

    - IC Section -


    This is your chance to be creative, the IC section is open for complete creative freedom.

    How will you present it? A snapshot from your characters life?

    Perhaps you'll present it in an IC format (dossier/transfer request)?

    How will you use media in your application?

    Give me as much information as you can about your character and their background, the type of person they are. Feel free to cross reference with a char biography if that helps, but I would very much like that you produce something informed and original. Do your research and be creative.

    Please note, characters only from the USSR will be accepted.

    Exceptions will be made only in the most particular circumstances.

    Returning characters form 1983/1990 are permitted, but will need considerably more effort in the IC section to be accepted.

    Be sure to include some information, such as;

    -Name
    -Origin
    -Personal / Military Background
    -Returning Character?
    -Desired Rank (If any)
    -Desired Specialisation (If any)

    Posting your application without applications being opened will result in automatic denial, although you are welcome to prep your application elsewhere if that is the case.

    I look forward to reading your applications.

    Good Luck!

    After some deliberation I have decided to open the Soviet applications relatively early to allow people to post their ideas and characters publically. This will also allow me to guage how many people are interested in the faction. And indeed make appropriate steps in setting up the structure of said faction. Post your applications in this section.

    Do not expect your application to be accepted soon or at all. Development continues, and release approaches but the date is still unknown. Be patient.

    Some of you will be disapointed by not getting accepted even if you write a decent application, I apologise but a balance must be struck regarding faction ratios.

    Speaking of which, if you are planning on having a NATO or Stasi char, don't bother applying. Same goes for if this won't be your main char.

    Do not pester me or any other Stasiland member of staff about your app or it will get denied too. Chatting about it with me on steam is fine but asking me everyday about when I am going to accept or deny it and its a ban.

    Shitposting in this section or on someones application will be a blacklist, if you have nothing important to say about an app don't post on it.


    May the best apps win.

    Applications will close when appropriate, then they will be reviewed and accepted at my own discretion.

    Please put in as much effort as you can, once they are posted they will be accepted at face value.


    Good luck, comrades.

    Also making another point for applications;

    When you're applying, keep this in mind:

    "In Russia, names aren't used in the same way most of us would use them, especially in formal ways.
    In legal documents, the surname is usually written first, then the first name and then a patronymic name, which is a name based on the father's name. The patronymic name is important as it's polite to call somebody by their first and patronymic name."

    This will help;

    https://www.fantasynamegenerators.com/russian_names.php

    Remember, it goes Surname - First Name - Patronymic. If our chars were addressing one another in some kind of formal situation, the way to address them would be; First name then Patronymic, like:

    Vladimir Ivanovich
    (First name - Patronymic)

    If you were writing things out on a formal document, it would be like this for example:

    Kapustov Vladimir Ivanovich
    (Surname - First name - Patronymic)

    If you've already posted an application don't worry about it, just thought this was a nuance of Russian / Soviet culture I thought I would highlight for you guys.

    Gonna start reviewing the first wave of applications soon. If you haven't been accepted don't worry, you may be accepted in the next wave.

    If you haven't applied and want a space for launch then do so soon.

    Due to time constraints and the plethora of apps, I won't be doing the IC responses given to the effort that that takes. But if you want special IC items based on your backstory I can give that no problem.
