FolkARPS is a friendly gaming community centred around Arma 3. Our regular sessions feature tactical game-play with consistent in-game organisation, multi-layered comms and a mix of coop and adversarial missions created by members of our community. However, we're not MilSim: there are no ranks or mandatory training - just friendly people.
