Yeah it's worth it especially since Combined Operations is only $17.99 on Steam right now. And yes when you die you lose everything and start over from scratch, but once you learn the game this isn't such a big deal. Your data is stored on the DayZ hive server, so your character position and gear are always saved when you log out.
Love the zombie genre but is this mod really worth me buying arama2?
Also when you die is that it you lose everything? Is your data tracked for later reference?
just do yourself a favor and log out in the forest somewhere. that way you wont log in to find yourself already shot because your body was there but your screen wasn't. and log out prone. I dont know if you stay that way when you log back in but i usually log out in the crouched position in a tree trunk.
Yes it is, it's one of the few reasons anyone is buying Arma 2 CO. And as thetraveler said, find a safe spot to log out. Me and a friend was raiding Cherno and went into the church, as we were about to leave a very well equipped player logged in and we shot him down before he could even move. We ended up getting the 24 slot Coyote backpack off of him and some other miscellaneous equipment.
