    PRTA Presents: Community Update | 29th September 2016

    Squad status update

    Early results from a poll about which games the community is interested in have indicated that Squad remains very popular, so it's receiving significant support in the form of a dedicated forum section, a user group for all squad players, and defined times when as many squad players as possible should join our server.

    Starting Sunday 2nd October 2016, a planned seeding session will take place on our Squad server. We would kindly like to ask all community members to "donate" a bit of their time by joining PRTA server with us at least once or twice a week and have a nice round or two of Squad at these times:

    • Sundays, 17:30 PRT
    • Thursdays, 17:30 PRT
    You can join the server early to avoid missing any of the action, or at any other time you want to play Squad. This should allow you to enjoy the competitive PRTA gameplay you are all here for in Squad whilst avoiding the much-hated approach of sitting on a nearly empty server and wait for other people to notice you before you could play the game.

    Thanks in advance for your support!

    Join Squad!

    PRBF2 Mania!


    PRTA Project Reality server is more stable than ever before. This goes hand in hand with increased player activity: in the last weeks we have logged over 27 000 player-hours on our server, which accounts for around 3 years of high-quality Project Reality gameplay. Keep the ball rolling folks!

    Please continue to report any issues with the server, help to support it, and if you are a member then you can - and you are encouraged to also suggest improvements and provide any feedback, so that we can keep up our quality.


    Changes in reserved slots


    Many of the reserved slots we had on file were for accounts that were apparently inactive. All of the slots for inactive accounts have now been removed, which should make easier for members to get into the server.

    The simplest way to get a reserved slot is to donate:

    This requires no need to wait for someone to process your application, and is the only way for non-members to acquire a reserved slot.


    Poll about games that members play

    With the latter a poll about games you play is connected. Please vote in this poll to help us improve our services.

    New user information - show the games you play


    PRTA has always tried to gather as much statistics from game servers as possible in order to improve the quality of our services, whether it is forums, Teamspeak or forums.

    Lately - mainly thanks to Sloan - we added a very small, but needed feature. Games checkboxes. You can find those in your Personal Details tab as two small checkboxes named PR:BF2 and Squad. If ticked, this adds you into our "table" and we can easily count how many people play Squad and/or Project Reality.


    If you still have no idea where to find it, just check this tutorial.

    If you ever see tagging like this " 4. PR:BF2 Players " or this " 4. Squad Players " you can click on that and you will find out, who plays that game.

    Forum changes

    If you are active on our forum you surely noticed that there were minor changes to the structure. We want to add usability and make it more convenient and easier to find information. We hope you will enjoy the changes. If you have any particular ideas, what to change or what to add, make sure you let us know here.


    PRTA warmly thanks donators in June - August

    Everything you see here is FREE. The forums, unit support, 500-client capacity TeamSpeak 3 server, PR live, event & training servers, Squad live & training server etc. Well, actually, it doesn't come free - it costs a lot to run; but it doesn't have to cost you a penny, unless you want it to.

    If it wasn't thanks to the generous donations of our community members, literally none of this would be possible.

    So we want to say THANK YOU to all those who kindly donated since June 1st up to today and kept the lights on around here:



    See you on battlefield folks!
