News Comments > Arma III Free Weekend

Loved OFP, loved ArmA, loved ArmA 2.
Bought ArmA 3 supporter edition, played it a bit, got a refund. What a POS game. CoD-like controls (twitch shooter), fictitious weapons, vehicles, etc, no content, worse animations than ArmA 2 had and Bohemia ignoring completely their old userbase.

I really am not surprised that DayZ SA ended up being a total mess as well.

Wasnt' the entire point of standalone's restructing from the ground up to help stop cheating? FrankieOnPCin1080P had a video a few weeks ago of people who had unlimited ammo in standalone, and all kinds of other shenanigans. At least now they can blame this on the reason there are cheats, even if it happened after the fact

To fix bugs that are caused by ArmA 2 and to stop cheating, yes.
Nothing of those happened. Its worse than in the ArmA 2 mod. ArmA 3 is a joke aswell.
I dont know what happened to Bohemia, I know they were known for their bugs in games, but at least they listened to their customers before. ArmA 2 was an awesome game at the end, but DayZSA and ArmA 3 feel as if they were written by a different company that doesnt have a clue what the originals were about.

They should just abandon that crap and go for ArmA 4 instead.
Everything seems out of order in this game. No content, stupid fictitious weapons, vehicles and stuff, horrible animations and a generic twitch-shooter feel.
Now that Dean Hall is gone, it can only get better, though.

This game needs to be more casual. Not only are the people always getting a heart attack, if someone isnt exactly doing what they need to do, simply because they havent run the instance 5000 times yet, but they also have become extremely unfriendly since release, they dont even thank you anymore if you save their life. Sometimes worse than WoW players. They are really judging players by achievements points. If you dont have 5k+ points, youre a noob to them and they treat you like dirt. Maybe its different on the US servers, but on the EU servers this is normal. I have literally become sick of people and their disgusting elitism in this game.

Its taking several months for people to get a few ascended items is also very frustrating, especially for returning players. You can spend 12 hours a day playing, and it still wont be faster. But if you dont spend at least 5 hours a day, it will take much longer. Not to mention the HUGE time lost if you want top change the build and suddenly need another type of gear.

Also I cant help thinking all the time what an awesome char I could have if I had more trait points. This system is holding the chars back too much. If you know the system a bit, you always feel like youre missing something awesome, if you chose one build over the other. Maybe quick switching from one build to another would help somewhat, but I doubt it.

Its a shame, this game was so promising.

The guy sitting in front of you texting that you have to end up shooting dead with a gun and spending the rest of your life behind bars.

Not to hijack the thread but I saw the surveillance video where the man got shot (who knew they film you while you're watching a movie?) and I kind of saw the old dude's side a little more. The other guy (much younger and bigger than the shooter) acted pretty beligerently with the popcorn grab and throwing what looks like his cell phone. My point is not to say that he deserved to get shot for it (because a death sentence is kind of a harsh penatly for that) but it ought to be a lesson to people that acting like an obnoxious gorilla is often dangerous to your health and should be avoided. Regardless, people are assholes which brings us back around to Slim's and Horror's point that going to the theater is usually not worth the hassle and frustration.


If the media doesnt report how he acted, and instead just puts the whole blame on the other guy, only maybe the people seeing it first hand in the theater will learn from it.

And what is with all the rampart cheating I have heard constantly about, are the developers incompetant, because I rarely run into cheaters in any of the other dozens of online games I have played.

Then you either dont play very much, or you simply dont have a clue of whats happening. Cheating doesnt only mean running around with a speedhack for everyone to see or killing 10 people in 500 milliseconds. They hide it so that people dont notice it. But if you know how those cheats work, and that a human cant react as fast as a fly, you know very easily who cheats and who doesnt.
Its obvious, they have fooled you very well.

ARMA III is a steal at that price!! Played the first part of the campaign & it was fun.
I wouldnt even buy it for $10. I bought the supporter edition but got a refund, after I noticed what path they take now and ignore their veteran players. The whole game feels like a badly made wanna be ArmA 2, with worse animations, generic shooter playstyle, unauthentic weapons and vehicles and compared to vanilla ArmA 2 almost no content. Not even Warfare missions are possible because there simply isnt enough stuff to use! And man, those animations... I always thought I am playing some cheap console shooter for $5, when I saw my character walking and moving from 3rd person view at lightning speed, losing not much accuracy when moving at a fast tactical pace... I feel so embarrassed for them.

I just hope they come to their senses again with ArmA 4.

As a non-veteran player, I was looking at the game but was worried it would be "too realistic". I was hoping for something semi-realistic but still fast paced... kind of like the original Rainbow 6 game (not the vegas series). Would ARMA 3 fit that bill?

In multiplayer I guess its what you want. Even small and CS-style maps are now playable, its that fast. A true twitch shooter. Even in CS you lose more accuracy when you move than in ArmA 3 now.
In singleplayer you still need to be careful, though. Needs more planning and more stealth since the AI is again cheating like mad.

This DayZ version looks very promising. No huge zombie spam anymore (where everyone can notice you from miles away), zombies are also very slow, the mechanics make much more sense now (you can rip shirts into rags to bandage yourself, you can take blood from someone else to transfer it to you - and die if its the wrong blood type, rotten food will make you sick, etc, etc.). But it looks extremely buggy still, even for an alpha. And thats what always made me not play this game for real. In normal ArmA 2 its bugs are negligible. They either dont happen a lot, or you simply respawn if you die from one. In DayZ they are a much, much bigger deal. It can seriously fuck your day up and make you lose everything you worked weeks for. As if bandits werent enough, your much bigger enemy are the bugs, even after such a long time of patching.

I hope for the best this time, but I have known Bohemia games for over a decade, and thus know its very likely that it will turn out as unplayable for me as the mod. At least the animations seem to be better than in ArmA 3, though, and it wasnt as dumbed down either, quite the contrary, it got much more complex than the mod, plus it still has authentic weapon names and models.

I really want to know where they get those numbers.
A few months back I checked every server how populated they were and they were rather empty, except 1 or 2 exceptions like Area 52 on horde side (alliance side is completely deserted).

You logged on to every server? There are almost 250 US servers alone. Another 100 for Europe. Then you take into account Horde and Alliance side... and the time it takes to run a proper /who census with a mod. Sorry, I'm calling bullshit. And even then you only get concurrent users, not how many active subscriptions there are.

And that's not even considering China, which I have no fucking clue how they calculate a user there.
Think what you want. I did it and it really didnt take that long.
Try it yourself, its not that hard.

Youre saying it yourself, you have no clue how they calculate a player in China. Me neither, and since they dont even give out simple info like that, their numbers are useless, and from my experience bullshit.

I just want PvP / Arenas with pre-determined gear sets.

So you can join, and just PvP to your heart's content, and everyone is on an even footing.

Like they do in the tournaments - but for everyone who wants to play like that.

I just wanna fight. I don't care about the gear grind and B.S. you gotta do to stay competitive.
I just want a WoW PvP sandbox.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the old SS vs TM world PvP.
It was some of the most fun I've had in any multiplayer game.
But back then, even the best gear in the game was only a little better than quest blues.
The stat inflation has ruined the game, IMO.

I simply don't want to dedicate my life to the game just to stay competitive with those that do.
And with the stat inflation, if you take a break and don't keep up, you're done.

They would never do that, because then their horrible balancing would be even more obvious.
