Welcome, New Member!

Thank you for your interest in our exclusive community of veteran, reserve, and active duty military gamers! We are excited to have you become a part of our ever growing community, and hope that your time with us is equally as exciting! To help you get started, we’d like to direct your attention to a few areas.

Steps to take:

  1. First, if you haven’t already created an account, begin the process by applying here.
  2. Once you activate your account, head over to the Teams page and apply to the BTDT team and your respective branch of service. Please note, on occasion the activation email fails to go through.  If this occurs, please be patient and an admin will manually activate your account. BTDT team applications will be approved by an administrator once your military service has been verified. Applications to the service teams will be approved immediately by an admin/mod as soon as they are made aware of the application. If you have any questions or run into any issues, please contact N2Narkosis.
  3. Join the group dedicated to the platforms you play by clicking the following links: Xbox, PlayStation, PC, Nintendo.
  4. Follow the instructions below under VERIFICATION PROCESS to verify your military service!  This step is critical as you will not receive full access to our servers and groups until your military service has been verified.
  5. Join our Discord server!  You likely already did this during the validation process.  However, if you didn’t, this is the easiest way to see who’s online, what they are currently playing, and is where the majority of BTDT’s community interaction occurs.  It is also the go-to method for passing quick announcements like free gaming codes and other goodies.
  6. Check out and follow our RedditFacebook, Twitter, and YouTube Channel!

As BTDT continues to evolve and take shape, its primary mission remains – to empower the individual veteran to overcome his or her stressors and to develop a community of esprit de corps reminiscent of their time in military service.  As such, members have grown beyond just being strangers on the other side of a console but true brothers and sisters in arms.

Verification Process

In order to ensure the exclusivity of this special community, we require all new members to verify their military service.  Once verified, we will remove you from the Prospective Members group and approve your application to the BTDT team page. Only members whose military service has been verified by an administrator will be accepted to the BTDT Team.

To accomplish this, we ask you to reach out to a BTDT administrator via our adminteam@btdtgaming.com address or through our Discord server.  We will need proof of your military service which – if you are/were a U.S. service member – you can easily obtain by submitting a Single Record Request at the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) website.  This request will generate a PDF which you can provide to an admin to verify your military service.  This allows us to validate your military service without you having to provide sensitive personally identifiable information.

If you encounter an error in using the SCRA website or served in a foreign military, you can also submit documentation such as a redacted DD-214 (or foreign equivalent), veterans card, drivers license with veteran stamp, or any other official form from which we can validate your military service. **Please black out any sensitive/personally identifiable information – we do not want nor need this information and you should never provide it**

If you were referred to BTDT by a validated member who can vouch for your military service, have that member reach out to an admin/moderator with your username for this site and Discord.  In such cases, we do not require any documentation from your end since we trust our members to respect the integrity of this exclusive community.

If we are unable to confirm your military service, your account will be deleted from the site and you will have to reapply.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our admin team!
