If (typeof _unit == "mollah" and combatmode _unit == "red") then {_unit getvariable "funlevel" = 0}

This code would cause an error.

You cannot assign values using getVariable :p

Wat. Why would they ban a game where they are WINNING?

The Chinese didn´t ban any of the failed OFPs either. Instead, they marketed it as "playing from the opfor perspective."

:( Irans government. Your lack of humour disappoints me.

Me thinks that suits better in the ArmA 3 Press Coverage thread.

-Closing-

Since someone interveined that discussion wouldn't be possible about this matter, thread is open again but moved to OT. ;)

Reason: this is more about politics than the game itself. The ArmA 3 section isn't the place for politics, even if A3 is the topic of it. So it has a new place in the OT section.

And since politics is always a "problematic" thing, let me remind you of a forum rule:

§1) No Flaming/Flame-baiting/bigotry

Abusive, racist, sexist, homophobic comments (or any other type of bigotry), personal attacks and name calling are not allowed either on the forum or through PM's. If you receive a PM that is abusive or you find offensive please forward it to a moderator who will investigate.

Flame-baiting is also not tolerated; flame-baiting is making a post to someone that is obviously intended to elicit an angry response. Mocking/teasing/ridiculing someone or the point someone wants to make is also flamebaiting. This also applies to other areas of the forums such as leaving visitor messages on people's profiles, messages posted in social groups, as well as quoting someone against their wishes in your signature to belittle/tease/mock them. If someone asks you to remove something they posted on the forum from your signature you must remove it. Common sense tells you that posting someone's PMs without permission is also flamebaiting and will be punished.

So far everything was fine, even funny. :D Keep it this way.

It's a pity our gaming comrades in Iran are not able to procure the game in a state-sanctioned manner. It's not every day your country is featured as a major playable faction of a video game unless you're American or Russian.

Are you sure they won't play it?

Our underground intelligence networking experts are already working on it: a secure website will be setup, payment via Paypal, since Visa/Mastercard is unavailable, an AWACS Boeing E-3 plane will provide temporary access to the operatives on the ground to purchase and download the game.

Hand exchange via cash is also an option, though a correct passphrase will be required; passes are to be valid for 8 hours, then a new one is issued.

Purchase? Payment? You greedy capitalists, give the game to that poor people for free! They have enough shortages and troubles from their bloody mad dictatorship so be merciful to them!

Seems a bit of a hasty decision..granted Iran is the OPFOR, they aren't third world country by any means, hell with the equipment we've seen thus far they are on par if not possibly more superior in tech. The rising of power while NATO dwindles, and the fact that you can actually play as OPFOr doesn't showcase a sense of favoritism, granted not in the campaign but outside of RTS how many games have you played where you could see things from the perspectives of both sides?

I guess in the growing tension there is some concern but it seems a bit misplaced, afterall, saying that such a thing is absurd would be like the US crying foul because modern warfare depicted a war torn states and decimated capitals, hell if the US is featured in any war game it is generally in far worse shape than any other country you visit.

I bet one thing is certain though, given all the "things" going on and if there is ever an Arma 4, they will go back to an even more fictional setting.
