  1. Because the "lololol altis can't run on frostbite" circlejerk gets old.

    Whats the secret to building a good clan?

    Don't compromise on the quality of your members. A lot of groups reduce their criteria to "anyone with a pulse" in order to quickly fill their roster and end up introducing various poisonous characters to their community that end up ruining it for everyone.

    Weaponrest, get it in even if AI cant use it

    QFT. AI are already absurdly accurate and were so even before BIS gave them the magical ability to calculate ballistics data on the fly (are genius-level IQs required to join the military in 2030?). The "AI can't use it so it shouldn't be in the game" excuse for excluding features is bullshit. Not everyone plays coop.

    Multiplayer dying fast??

    ArmA 3 gained its initial boost in popularity from the casual audience, such as Wasteland players (I'm not sure what other missions are popular, I rarely play pubbie ArmA). We've seen two major FPS franchises make releases in the past month and it's natural for those players to migrate to more recent games. Those aren't dedicated Armaholics that are leaving, those are players, who generally play a new game for a few months and then shelve it.

    The what have you bought thread

    My only wish is that I could put more things on it. Maybe around holiday time I'll buy a second one and put it into a RAID0 :bounce3:

    Finally upgraded to a proper CPU, mobo and DDR3 memory. Core i5 4670k, 8GB DDR3-1600, ASUS Z87 Pro and a Samsung 840 EVO 250GB Shitty cell pic. dealwithit.jpg ArmA runs like a dream!
  7. I'm wondering if anyone else here is a fan of the grand strategy games made by Paradox Interactive. Personally I've been playing HoI 3 for a while and have absolutely loved it. It's based around World War II, with a timeline that spans the years 1936-1948. The games are very easy to mod as well. Here's some screenshots: http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/5208/381101latvia.jpg http://i.imgur.com/TdddN.jpg

    Wargame: AirLand Battle

    It'd be nice to see better map design from them. Right now the maps remind me of C&C Generals with all the chokepoints.

    Is the game dumbed down?

    I'm not defending it, I'm calling out people who don't want others to play missions with it. If you don't like the medic system, script a substitute or just don't play the game. I don't care much for the new medic system but I don't start whine threads about it. I don't recall whining about anything, all I do is call people out as elitists for saying shit like "DayZ is bringing horrible people to the community" and suddenly everyone is butthurt. And trust me, I don't care about your opinions. Play the game as you please, just don't ram your playstyle down other people's throats. Clearly I'm too much of a stupid casual kiddie to be able to engage in dialogue with you.

    Is the game dumbed down?

    For some reason, a lot of the people here can't stand the fact that the game (err... simulation) is being played by a more casual userbase (hence the whining about DayZ kiddies). I'm fairly sure those are just bandages. Unless something's changed and I'm not remembering right. Ah, you're right. They are FAKs after all. Aren't they somewhat ineffective though? I recall not being able to fully heal with those. What's the difference between them and medikits?

    Is the game dumbed down?

    Holy shit, so it's not enough for you to play your own missions without FAKs, you gotta tell everyone else how to play the game too?
  12. I'm not a modder and I don't pretend to be familiar with any of this stuff, but I support the initiative.

    Is the game dumbed down?

    Good to see our resident elitists haven't gone out of business. BTW, fun fact: At release, the ArmA 2 medical system was even more "dumbed down" than the ArmA 3 one is now. Medics were able to heal you to 100% without needing ANY supplies. But don't let facts get in your way!

    Altis - Info & Discussion

    I have some FPS issues but I'd chalk that up to my crappy CPU rather than the OS (Windows 7 x64).

    Wargame: AirLand Battle

    Free DLC is out - includes conquest mode as well as new units. West Germany finally gets a decent fighter in the F-4F ICE.

    Wargame: AirLand Battle

    I think the biggest thing to remember while playing this game is the importance of combined arms. Having a good mix of AA, aircraft, artillery and infantry to support your push is essential to success.

    Wargame: AirLand Battle

    They're pretty useless out in the open, but I never look forward to having to dig infantry out of a chokepoint, forest or town. Special forces units are very good too, you can cause some serious damage with a squad of those. Plus, if you run into ATGMs, typically the cheapest way to remove them is by bombarding them with smoke shells and then rushing with your own infantry (mounted in APCs).

    Wargame: AirLand Battle

    Hell to the yes. What's more, they've added new city combat mechanics as well as much greater variety in the types of units you can get. Plus, you can't get IFVs by themselves anymore, so high-veterancy infantry is almost mandatory.

    Wargame: AirLand Battle

    Personally, I find balanced decks to be the most effective.

    RH Pistol pack

    As it has already been said in this thread, all of the ArmA 2 packs will eventually make it to ArmA 3. Give the man a break

    World War II’s Strangest Battle

    That's why Dutchmen, Frenchmen, Norwegians, Latvians, Estonians and Ukrainians volunteered to join SS units, right?

    Margaret Thatcher dies

    And yet nobody's reversed her policies :S
  24. This cannot be done due to the L44 EULA which forbids such a thing, even if you own both games.

    Like her or not, she fought hard for what she believed in.
