A little under two years ago I created the Older Aged Players Alliance, a player group for the older aged gamer to come and enjoy a relaxed group having fun playing Escape from Tarkov with like minded gamers of the more mature age group. The idea was great as were the people, the admin however was not, and that admin was me. We had at the height of the alliance around 120 members who liked the idea of this dedicated group and it's relaxed atmosphere. The problem was I wanted run it very stringently, with no player being able to pop in and out on a casual basis. I wanted a group of people who were going to participate 100% or have to explain why they were not. This attitude alienated many of the group and the more they voiced their displeasure about it the harder I pushed. There's no excuse for my attitude or imposing rules and regulations and when everybody left the group I was left with an empty channel and a very bitter pill to swallow. My lessons have been learned and I hope that many of you reading this who were involved in OAPA back then might just see your way clear to letting me put it right. I would like to reform the group, offer an open and warm invitation here and now to all past members and new ones alike to come back and be a part of what was the biggest group dedicated to the older aged player, and was indeed the third biggest group on the EFT forums at that time. I can't say any more people, I've had to change my ways and I hope that the raw nature of this re-introduction will hopefully give you the incentive to come back and make OAPA great again. For those of you who aren't familiar with OAPA, as I said we are a dedicated group catering for the more mature player and our target audience is 30+. We do have to draw the line on age somewhere I'm afraid as age is the fundamental building block of the group. OAPA historically had members from all over the globe, from all walks. We had serving and veteran members in the armed forces and security services playing regularly who's input into tactical awareness and weapon knowledge was both highly interesting and invaluable in a game that is heavily realism based. Those people led squads out in both very tactically orientated raids and some runs out just for fun. Everybody in the group gave their knowledge and their gear freely to new members and everybody was made to feel welcome. A great bunch of people who I hope to see the likes of again. If you would like to be part of the New Dawn of the Older Aged Players Alliance then please post your interest or PM me. We will have a global and democratic admin base within the Discord represented on both sides of the pond and across Europe, no more dictatorship I promise. Thanks for reading this re-introduction to OAPA and if you decide to join us or not, I feel happy that I've bared my soul to you (you know who you are).
