[Official] Arma 3 Information & Discussion Thread - Page 6

post #51 of 1589
well you think the expacs are probably going to be 20-30 a piece. it makes sense. if you love arma it's worth it. however mileage may very. if you got or can find a clan or community to play with *AHEM OCN LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN AHEM*.

my experience in arma2 was the 32 or 64 player coop was badass but couldn't get anyone to pick me up. or servers was modded and you didn't know what the f was going on. I stopped playing. At the beginning though I was playing a with a community that we did 64 player coop and that was amazing but arma 2 release was a buggy nightmare and fell out of love with the game. it also ran like crap on my old rig.

with right group of people and if you stick with it, the $90 option would be the best, but personally I think i'll start with the 32.

He has got to know some of the devs at Bohemia Interactive over the years. He wrote an excellent guide for Arma 2 called Arma 2 Tactics, Techniques & Procedures Guide. Which is a great help for people who want to get into the more serious side of organised Arma. You should check out some of his videos on his channel if that interests you at all.

IIRC he works for Bohemia as well...

Just a note on DLC;

It says "If any, does not include standalone expansions or sequels". Not sure exactly what it means by that, as "standalone" and "expansion" mean different things to me completely.

I'll just wait for the inevitable Alpha Lite begging to start and get in on that. wink.gif

Expansions, like DLC, require the original game to play. A standalone expansion wouldn't require Arma 3 to play, and thus wouldn't be covered.

I'm assuming 'standalone expansions' means something like OA... which is a shame, charging such a premium for the supporters edition and not including standalone expansions is a little crazy on bohemias part. I probably will get the deluxe edition now... thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Not having played ARMA II, I was unaware that OA was a standalone. I thought the ARMA II base game was required. Whenever my friends mention it, they generally mention it as one - probably since they have the complete version.

That's a big part of why I'll be getting the basic version. If all DLC (no restrictions) was included, I'd probably pick up the supporters version in a couple months after saving some money up for it.

You could play OA by itself, but you lost pretty much all mod support and everything from the original ARMA II. Also, the supporters edition will only be available for a little while, can't remember how long but it isn't a long time(30 days maybe?).

Basically DLC like the Private military company for ARMA 2 would be included, but a standalone expansion like Operation Arrowhead would not.

Ah, I guess even if I was going to, I'd be stuck with the basic version then, since I'd be waiting a while before getting it. Lucky that I'd decided against the supporters edition due to the DLC issue.
