ArmA1 was more or less a stop gap for ArmA2

What you are saying is that Arma 1 doesn't matter. You are saying that it is fine that the game is abandoned in a very buggy state because it isn't a real product. Where is my refund then?

It has been 6 months since the last official patch. Before that the last patch took over 1 year to make. You consider that good support?! It takes them 3 years to patch what most companies do in 6 months.

You claim that Arma1 works perfectly for most users. That is utter bull. Most people have completely given up on Arma1 because it doesn't work. The servers have been almost empty for a very long time. Visit the BIS forums and read all the posts. Tons of technical problems.

Fanboys constantly deny there are problems with the coding of Arma1. They always say "it works perfectly for me, it must be because you are an idiot and don't know how to use a computer". Sorry Mr. Fanboy, but I bought my first computer in 1984. Since 1997 I have been building my own PCs. I don't claim to be an expert but to simply brush off Arma1 problems as "my fault" is laughable. Funny, how all other 3D games work perfectly. Arma1 is the only one with problems for me.

Arma1 was a constant beta with the paying customers working as beta testers. BIS makes a single change and it takes them 2 years to get it right (if ever). The community has been permanently split down the middle between different patches (half playing the last "final" patch and the other half playing the beta patch). This has been going on for several years now since Arma1 has been released. BIS is always VERY SLOW to release the Linux dedicated server files. It wouldn't be so bad if their patches were flawless but they often create more new bugs than they fixed!

Enjoy your crashes and bugs. Arma2 will be abandoned just like Arma1.
