  • Just got it!

    Although my usual game's bf2 pr, I saw a copy @ the store today and just had to grab it! I've been playing through the tutorial, I'll try to hook up with you guys online sometime once I figure out how the heck to play this game

    I didn't join a squad once and this guy named Nardini took me into the back room and beat me with a sock of oranges.

        Re: Just got it!

        I have just one question(s)..

        Is multiplayer for this game popular?

        How many people populate a typical server?
        and if TG has a server how many people populate that.

        Does it have more realism then Bf2 PR? i heard it was a "Simulator"...

          Billy,

          Multiplayer is the focus of this title. Yes, it is much more realistic than PR, but your also right, it is more of a simulation title than arcade shooter like BF2. If you enjoy the realism of PR, you can enjoy the realism of ArmA. Just be warned, it is not as fast paced because of the realism. That seems to be the biggest adjustment. With that, I have not gone back to PR since getting this game. I can play POE2 because it is different, but I can't play PR, because PR is close enough to remind you of this game, but lacks much of the realism.

          We have two servers, population varies for each depending on who is on and what type of gameplay they are looking for.

            Khan, thanks for the info.

            yes it is the slow paced combat i am actually looking for. I might get the game but my comp is pretty low end so not sure how bad i would lag out...

            I lagged out pretty bad on the demo but perhaps that was due to buggy coding or something..

              I had really crappy performance with the demo but the retail version is much better. It could be better for you with the retail version too.

              This game is completely different from Battlefield, even with PR or the POE mods. It is far more realistic than you could ever imagine and the size of the environment is the biggest you've probably ever seen. It's a problem trying to walk from flag to flag in Battlefield but it's practically impossible in ArmA. It just takes too long without transport. It's also a flexible game. You could do just about anything with the powerful scripting system.

              If you like games such as Ghost Recon, ArmA is something that you could really love.

              - It's who you game with.
