Just when I try to take a break from Arma 3 to finish some other games in my pile of shame they pull me back in.

 

Keen to give this a try!

 

If I got this… are people actively playing arma 3? I remember arma 2 had hardly anyone on servers.

What? There’s heaps of people still on A2 servers.
Just like there’s heaps of people on A3 servers…

 

thefinn,

dont forget its still in alpha (for a few more weeks) then into limited beta

and will be many months till its released so forget aboot online play.

also there was always ppl playing arma2 its just that the arma series has always been and always will be a niche game , they trying to make it easier for the kids to play but arma is aboot the realism, spending half n hour in group breifing, another 20 minutes selecting yah gear loadaout, possibly an hour of driving time to yah objective and quite literally blink of an eye to get killd

if you havnt tried the game ever, try the alpha lite (tho it ends in a week or 2)

cos the whole feel of the game is nothing like a regular fps arcade shooter like bf3 or cod

 

I don’t know what servers you’ve looked at finn but I’ve been playing ArmA 1-3 ever since its first came out and never noticed anything like that.

Sure, you can’t compare it to other, more popular games (DayZ kinda changed that though) but there’s normally plenty of people around – not all of them like to play on public servers however.

Oh and of course I can’t tell how the situation is on Australian servers but around Europe and the US, it shouldn’t be a problem.

If you really played ArmA you’d know there were maybe 5 servers at any one time, and if you didn’t like the map or playing Evo, TOUGH.

I’ve got lite sitting on my steam account but the game just looks way too arcade compared to what it used to be. I know they’ve nerfed sprint speed but it was ridiculous having it that high in the first place.

 

Yeah it’s as if they almost just released it in an alpha state!

Having fun with the game and the community has been positive in the changes the game is playing better with every update.

 

The Lynx sounds so freakin brutal, love it!
