I love Arma 2, but like many, hate the online community. Nothing but Evolution and Domination games, played by people who just don't communicate, or who don't speak english. However, there are one or two respites. Try out Charlie Foxtrot at www.cfarma2.com. Basically, join some kind of organised group. Arma2 is no fun pubbing.
Yeah I think part of the problem is that the game's interface doesn't facilitate teamwork so we have to rely on people making a concerted effort to make that happen. Pub servers are definitely chaotic as far as teamwork goes, except the chopper pilots do a great job of shuttling the soldiers.
I was just on a server and a tank selfishly and by himself cleared a town.. Not teamwork, just someone trying to rack up kill score points.
PR mod has the nice squad system and spawn/rally/hideout/firebase/etc.. and the GUI makes joining squads and picking kits straight forward. Just picking a kit type is confusing in A2. And i still don't know how to join a squad (I did in A1 and it wasn't convenient). Too bad BIS didn't take some lessons from it.This comment was edited on Jul 2, 2009, 16:40.
