Chain of Command

Understanding the BK Structure

Some members have been with the BK for a while and would like to help out. Although they are to be highly respected for their work, they are not your boss. You should see them as levels of support. With more then 170 members. I would never be able to do this alone.

We are giving you all the opportunity, training and support to do your job. However we do expect you do it! We are not going to chase you. If you do not do your job and you do not respond to e-mails, you lose it and all benefits. By not informing us yourself you risk to be excluded from positions within the Platoon and future benefits.

If you have other obligations, let us know in time. We understand that there are new games coming out or you have other obligations. Let us know in time and you can apply later again.
If we feel you are not up to it, let me know. Maybe there are other ways you can help out.

Do you want to apply for a certain position, use the contact form. Explain which function you want to apply for. We also need your e-mail address, your PSN name and your Skype-name. Once we receive ALL this information, we will contact you for a talk on Skype. Feel free to add us on Skype anyways: BattlefieldKnights.

The volunteers who fill the positions below are not a legal representatives of this website. If you are looking for a legal representative, e-mail to info@battlefieldknights.com.

For all positions we ask you are 16 years or older
