Ok, so I bought Arma 3... I don't see the appeal.

You say you expected a sim but expected team death match? OK.


Apparently the two are mutually exclusive.

So let me get this straight. The game is a sim when it's on a huge island, but it's not a sim when it confines you to a certain part of the island for a team death match? If you want to use the "it's a sim" excuse, then the game isn't a sim because you are just confined to the island and can't go to the rest of the world. Great logic there.

That's what people do when they realize they ****ed up.

RP has if you are an actual soldier on the ground fighting for your life. That's how I play ARMA 3 when I go on public servers. I mostly play Domination and objective base game modes though.

Make terrible topics?

I've watched DayZ videos for Arma 2, and it looks fun.


Pretty much sums it up

You want a tdm mode, build a mod for it. Just don't be shocked when no one plays it because it entirely misses the point of the series. Other games exist for that and they do it far better. Other games don't tend to do realistic combined arms in a team based environment.


Red Orchestra did just fine doing the same thing in a normal team death match. There's no reason no one would play this doing it.

Using red herrings also shows you ****ed up. That is what we call a logical fallacy. You committed one when you used the "it's a sim" excuse, and now you used one with a red herring.

Tell me how this logically makes sense.

It's a sim when you are confined to a large island.
It's not a sim when you are confined to a smaller part of the large island.

Yeah I picked up Arma III before release.. and now that it is released.. I either don't see what all the fuss is about or I clearly don't know what I am doing.. although I'll have you know I was obsessed and loved Cold War Crisis as a kid... that said... is it really me?

Not everyone can be good at real games. It's okay.

Ok, first of all, Red Orchestra is NOT a sim. It's an FPS.

Anyways...TC, I'll explain things to you nice and simple. Arma 3 is a military sim. It is not an FPS shoot'em up. It's okay if you don't like this type of game. We've all had purchases we're not fond of and they go into the junk folder.

TC, you have changed your topic around a few times. The first post was about how you died walking across the map. It's not the games fault that you suck. Then you switched the subject saying just because it's a sim doesn't mean it's a good sim, and not to use the excuses "realistic" and "it's a sim". Then you added, "You shouldn't be able to respawn". Now you've gone against your first thoughts because you wanted a more fair type game in the first place....yet you don't want to respawn...

Then you add later on: "then the game isn't a sim because you are just confined to the island and can't go to the rest of the world." So...you want to be able to travel the whole world on one game? Do you know how much time and money the devs would have to put into that? IF they finished the game and used graphics/engine similar to Arma 3, the game would be already outdated, buggy as hell (even more than it is now), and there'd be so much to patch that it'd eventually lose support.

Again, RO2 is an FPS. Never talk about it like a sim. It is an FPS.

Now...never use "logical fallacy" in any of your topics. Ever. Again. Because basically all of your posts were "logical fallacies".

One more thing. This game isn't for everyone. Stop whining because you didn't research the game.

Common sense....where'd it go?

The fact that you could say something so incredibly stupid, it's not even worth responding to the rest of the post. Stop using the damn "it's a sim" excuse. IT DOES NOT HOLD UP.
