Hey there, so I've been trying on an occasion, most often or not failing to access "My Units" on the ARMA3 Units Website.
This is so frustrating to deal with and there is honestly no reason in this day and age a website like this should be so hard to navigate or use. What is more this (according to searches), is an ongoing issue that has yet to be resolved. Can we please see a fix deployed for ARMA3 Units website so it can be accessed, and operated without such disruption. It can take hours to access on a good day.

Here my feedback to the Unit System.

 

After the old way to make a Squad.xml did not work for me anymore because of an unknown problem what did not allow me to change this xml for me or join another it was a very welcome alternative way to implement this option I didn't had anymore.

I like this way to individualize yourself and give a way to identify you and your group to others alot and used it since 2014.

 

Anyways... I also think there is a need to improve the system and make some changes and or add more settings - make it a bit more userfriendly so to say.

 

First of all: if you create such an unit you allready geting trouble because you HAVE to make a description and this needs to have a minimum of 125 characters and this my dear people is exactly the problem why some of you were not able to open a group because you haven't realized that this is absolutly necessary - I did not at the beginning as well. If you have reached the 125 and everything else necessary is done as well you're good ... otherwise you are unable to go on.

 

The 125 characters are to much in my opinion and should be reduced to an absolut minimum of maybe 25 or you change the need of this description what would be probably even the best idea.

I mean It should be your decission if you want to add a description or not and shouldn't be forced especially not if there is not much or anything at all to say... So it should be optional and not required. Im not sure but I also think the biography isn't optional as well what it should be as well.

 

Next thing I've noticed... others as to the Squad.xml it seems like you can't add a short comment what would be shown in the game (in the playerlist under the users profile). At least I've not figured out what to edit to add this comment but I would like to add some few words - of course optional as well!

 

Than it should be also optional what characteristics it has. I mean if the "principal attitude" and "gameplayfocus" is not clearly defined why force the people to just do this?

 

Another thing I've noticed. You can't edit the units ranks. Only if you allready got members with the rank but you can just edit this players rank and not the rank itself. If I say for example Rank 7 is General it would be only for a specific player but not the others with the same rank but if I want to clearly define what this rank should be this would be helpful. So an option to just make this possible would be nice.

 

Well... this was it from my side. Thanks for this oppertunity and a way to easy realize this with the unit system but please... get rid of this stumbling blocks 😉

I have an old Unit that i have not been a part of for a long time. It's still showing up on my launcher and won't go away. I have even gone to that units page and blocked them, still there.  If I login to the Arma 3 Units page, it says im not part of the unit anymore.  I joined another unit, and its also NOT showing up in the launcher, but on the website it says i'm in the unit.  Anyone else having this issue?

I think Units is a bit of a failed experiment.
 

The idea is great, the site looks slick and how it works with the launcher to select a unit (and get a patch ingame) works great. But looking at the front page and seeing "97896 units" registered, i think something went terribly wrong. I expected maybe a few hundred units to exist, maybe a thousand max, but nearly 100k units? That's 4 units for every Arma player (according to SteamCharts).

 

It's not something i would use if I wanted to look for a new group

Does anyone know why the unit icons in the launcher and the main menu are displayed normally, but are not displayed after entering a multiplayer game

In launcher and main menu, you are downloading the image. In multiplayer the server has to download them. So something is probably wrong with the server.
