    Happy Eighth Birthday PRTA!


    PRTA in Short

    The Project Reality Teamwork Alliance, also known as PRTA, was founded on 5th of October 2010. It was created to give a number of smaller clans and communities a concept to rally up behind, a platform to organize events that they would otherwise be unable to do, and to improve the general level of teamwork in Project Reality.

    Throughout its history the PRTA community has organized several tournaments, countless events, hosted extremely popular public servers for Project Reality and have begun to host servers in additional games. Active forums, TeamSpeak and Discord servers have helped to bring a lot of people together and made us a friendly community for anyone interested in playing PR:BF2, and since this Autumn also again Squad.

    During all of this we have grown from a small group of around 15 people into a community with 306 members and 101 staff members at the moment, running some of the most popular Project Reality servers and especially events.

    In the beginning of our history Wicca used to run a server called the "NATO Event server" which was an off-spring from the PRT in cooperation with Coca1n from the 10th Mountain Community and several other staff and members of the NATO team in C6 and C7.

    Back in those days we were not really that organized, we used xfire to communicate and had a simple forum which we never used on xfire as well.

    At some point we felt the need to enforce mumble during our events, at the same time RT (Reality Teamwork) led by space and Himalde was growing, and this community was quite actively enforcing mumble, as the first server in Project Reality.

    During this time the Project Reality developers announced plans to launch Project Reality Arma2. Looking at the required specifications for running a server for that game, Wicca saw that the cost would be too great for one community to easily manage on their own. So Wicca spoke to several people about creating PRTA, or PRTC as it was called for a short short while.

    Members from all over the Project Reality community joined, and Wicca also used his contacts in the PRTA as well as visiting most of the Project Reality communities teamspeaks, ventrilos and mumbles to garner support for the idea which was to share costs and effort on a PR Arma2 server.

    We received a lot of support and our management team which was slowly forming, was made up of some really talented individuals such as Wilkinson and Kain.

    The basis back then was simply that each unit or clan would vote on the direction of the community, suggested by Wicca. 1 vote per unit. Soon after our creation, the RT server was shut down due to drama in the realitymod forum. That community no longer had a server, and Wicca made a vote to make a PR server. The vote was in favour of doing that.

    So we started work on the admin team, and the server. Things were mostly calm back them, with the major issue being OD-S rushing flags..

    After a while our Wilkinson became AWOL and our website went down due to unpaid fees. We had a tournament, the PR World cup, which could not have gone worse..

    With a new website, using the Xenforo license, we started rebuilding and rewriting our community and structure. This time we got some more help from NEW and 3dac, Curry-Chicken was also heavily involved. This is all in 2010-2011.

    I started talking to each community hosting a server to start enforcing mumble on their servers, and we finalized a Mumble agreement with said servers publicly announcing they would start kicking players to make room for players with mumble installed. With all this going on our server was going strong.

    Just soon after, work on 200 players was a foot, and we were requested by the development team to try out code that would permit more than 6 players in a squad.. It worked! Soon after Soppa and Tema joined the PR team and started public testing with 200 players, we purchased the service from Soppa and were hosting the 200 tests soon after.

    This led to events and tournaments beyond comprehension, as we even got to try out 128 battle server for TART. It was mixed in the way it worked, but the possibilities were endless. Such success can be short lived, and although it did last a while, it finally died down with some drama.

    After this we got back to 64 players, although it was not as fun.. Our server was not seeded as often. The developers finally released 100 player servers with version 1.0 in 2013 which also saw the end of TART. We merged with FCV, DRK and Bluedrake42 in 2014. We started with War of the Factions to help develop commanders in PRTA.

    The community was thriving, we reached record number of active servers, users in teamspeak and our forum activity was far bigger than we could handle. We tried opening new servers. With mixed results, leading to the famous 9/14, which also prompted me to leave. If anything is learnt it is that we should have focused on what we had back then, instead of trying to make something new and that running a large organisation is hard.

    After 9/14 PRTA was lead by KRivers, Sloan and Chav. This era was from time to time "surviving" and usual business running a community, hilights being events, especially Arnoldio's famous One Life Events.

    When I came back last year we were able to reactivate the community and build upon the parts that were missing. We still aren't exactly where I want us, but I have some plans to grow our numbers and the servers we have.

    Thank you for reading.

    Join us in some fun games on Saturday evening


    This year we will have an fun gaming event to celebrate our birthday! It will be a drinking event, so make sure you bring plenty of booze and be ready to have a great time. Please note that we will be playing on Saturday evening, as boozing games on BD evening (Sunday) would probably cause some difficulties starting a brand new working/studying week ;-)

    The schedule is as follows:

    1. Pre-game 20 PRT - anyone welcome, however not the main start.
      Kiekko.tv (browser ice hockey) - 1 hour.
    2. Main events: 21 PRT
      CAH - 1 hour (losers of every round must drink).
      PR:BF2 - 3 hours.
    3. The end - if anyone's still around and fit to play
      Secret Hitler - until we die.

    Thank you all for making this happen!


    We appreciate you all - whether you just enjoy hanging around, playing on our servers or contribute in running the community. All this would not be possible without you, so PRTA staff is grateful for your dedication and contribution to this community.

    We have had good time and unforgettable moments with all of you over the years and we sure hope to see you around at least the next eight years here as well, as we are looking forward to further expand our community in terms of members, content, games and infrastructure.



    - PRTA Management
