CiA co-op night

Recommended Posts

AxkiVua.gif?1

Comrades in  Arms hosts an Arma 2 coop night for serious team players on every Tuesday at 20:00 CET. During summer, daylight-saving time will be in effect. If you are uncertain of the current server time check it here.

CiA have been running serious coop games for the past nine years. We are mostly known for our strict but simple modus operandi during our missions. There are no trainings or role playing; we concentrate on the mission and the ways to complete it, that's it. We choose a commander, lay out a plan, and during its execution we follow the team leader's orders carefully. In spite of that, the atmosphere is light and calm. Every one, including guests, can lead in our games. However, once a leader was chosen everybody are expected to do exactly as he says.

In order to assure a mature team play the server is password protected. If you are aware of the server rules we will be glad to provide it to you. Just PM me or any other CiA member, or use our contact form and you'll get the password. Once you have received it, you are requested not to forward it to anyone else. Simply direct those who wish to join to this thread, or to our "Join CiA coop nights" website page.


CiA Server Rules

1. Orders
Follow your leader's orders at all costs, even if they may seem senseless in your eyes. This also requires that each unit knows their number so you will know which order is addressed to you. Orders are given either via Teamspeak, VOIP or the text chat. You should be attentive to all of these comm channels.

2. Reporting Back
If the leader addresses you, respond. If you have been given an order, respond with 'Roger' so the leader will know that you have received and understood it. Upon completion of the assigned task report 'Ready'.

3. Formation
Stick with the formation unless told otherwise. Even numbers should move to the right hand side of the leader, while odd numbers to his left. If the main squad is split up into smaller squads, each squad moves as an independent team, led by an assigned secondary leader.

4. Map
Stay focused on the tactical situation. Know where you and possible friendly units are to avoid friendly fire.

5. Firing
Don't open fire without being ordered. Before firing on a unit, check the map for friendly units! Rather be shot by an enemy than shooting a friendly!

6. Chat
Don't chat if it has nothing to do with the current combat situation. Dumb comments result in overfilling the chat space, thus no one realizes when important orders are given. Switch to group chat during missions, if you aren't leading.

7. Concentration
This is the last and most important rule: Concentrate. We don't forbid joking, but once a mission has started, stay serious, calm and focus on the game!

Anyone who doesn't follow one or more of these rules will be asked to leave.

We played a few games lasts weeks which turned out to be very nice, I can't wait to see what happens when the crowd gets bigger. With all these complaints on a lack of proper servers around here I would say there is quite some potential for great coops!

I've never played PvP in ARMA2 but really want to try it. Does CIA only play coop or sometimes player vs player too?

Hi Zeep. We mostly play coop. PvP is a rather rare game type to be played on CiA.

Looks interesting. What kind of player numbers to you have?

The number usually ranges from 4 to 7. More and more people request the password lately so expect this number to increase.
