  • ArmA 3 - What do or don't you like about the game so far?

    Figured I would make this thread so we can just have a chitty chat about the game we all love, not to hate on it but just to talk about what we like/don't like so far.

    I love everything about the infantry except for the sprinting speeds, it feels too fast to me.
    I love the helicopters, they fly nice and smooth, landings feel different from ArmA 2 but I can adjust.
    I think grenades take too long to blow up, and I don't like how we can't cook them, that'll probably be added in the beta or full game I hope.
    Love the graphics.
    Oh, and I love going into war with only a tee shirt and my undies.

    And I have a question for you guys.
    BLUFOR or OPFOR?

    However for some reason we played them a lot, Fallujah was site of some very large missions. If by comparison we can clearly see the map they were showing off was that of which was available for A2:OA just ported to work in A3. Obviously now with the tech update we should be able to have much more realistic environments. By re-done I meant actually having a unique town model set that would in turn create an even more unique map. However I do not plan on actually making any such terrain or redux my response just lacked the proper grammar. :row__591:

    It would also be nice if more maps that were mostly flat took a micro-terrain approach like Celle. Not all maps need to be mountainous or a large forest but everywhere on earth terrain does tend to very as you travel.

    It might also be nice to see more city maps that are not located in a desert or forest.

    Now now, we were all 12 year old virgins at one time. ;)

    I would like to clarify before anyone takes this the wrong way.

    I was saying the unlimited mouse speed allowed to turn players now in Arma3 compared to the limit where all soldiers turn at the same speed in arma2. Places Arma3 more in the line of twitch reflex fast passed FPS games..

    I do not think all BF3 or COD players are 12 or virgins. I was just using an expression used for that style of game play.

    I understand and agree with what you're saying, but do you really think that the houses in the Middle East are really diverse enough to deserve more modelling? The only Takistan I've played is on the Bravo server and I thought it was a great map. It would be a lot more immersive if every building was different, but BI just doesn't have the staff to create hundreds of building models for a single map.

    I really noticed the weather and environmental rendering improvements on one of UNKL's missions earlier today.

    I don't see that at all, it is not linear, you don't level up or get trinkets, it is still a wide open sandbox. We play the same way we always have in Arma, still teamwork with tactics and fun. I do not see or feel COD or any of those type of games when I play A3a. That is my opinion and you certainly are entitled to yours.

    "What do or don't you like about the game so far?"


    As an avid fan of the ofp arma series since inception :-

    I do not like arma3 so far it seems to me they are catering to the COD - BF3 play style of the best 12 year old virgin with a twitch reflex and a fast mouse will have the best turn and fire ratio.

    gone are all soldiers that turn at the same speed no matter your mouse type.


    I do like the idea of variant speed and adjusting your stance.

    apart from that its the same as Arma2 so far for me, except it caters to a less strategic and more fps style of game play.

    but all that aside a nice alpha build looking forward to them fixing the COD stuff and hoping they revert back to a Mil-sim rather than a twitch fps.
