So I know it's a new game, but it's already much better than dayz

So Who here plays?

Who is interested?

I'll answer the questions I can from my own experiences but there is also this:

Some quick peimptive answers:
Pay to win was killed by the devs on day one. Now 5bucks gets you a 10% chance of 1 firearm and a small amount of ammo. And the risk of someone else getting the drop you payed for is significantly high.

Right now loot is bugged and only respawns on server reset.(as of1/20/15) but should be patched in the next 24-48hrs.

Dam. No love?

I play it, but I have a group I already roll with.
Fun so far, but the loot issue needs fixin.

I've played quite a bit after they fixed all the issues the first day. It's already 10x more fun than day z.

I play as just a lone wolf, and am friendly to everyone. Seems like people like to yell "friendly" then try and back stab me. That's the main reason I don't like having friends in these games. People always want your stuff.

I already got a 308 rifle, 1911 handgun, and about 30 rounds of 45 ammo, and 1 308 round, so it's not that hard to build up your inventory pretty quick by looting places which is nice. I only use the bow though to fight people because I hate wasting ammo. Also I noticed any time I bring out a gun, all the noobs start running at me with their fists since they got nothing to lose, and want your stuff.

Overall the game is very fun, and you can build a character up with loot within a few hours. Also hacking is punishable by a total ip ban on all of sonys games which is a bonus.

So far I've been playing solo. But I seriously need to find a steady group. What servers are yall on

I wonder what if ARFCOM could take over a town or a server

I'm really interested whats the computer specs required? I tore it up on Day Z a couple years ago with a fairly large group..it was so much fun.

I watched a stream of it. Looks like it's just as clunky as DayZ and the graphics seemed worse.

Blackout usually, If you see a 1Spec1 tag thats us. 1Spec1Biohazard0550 is me. Prolly a good idea to steer clear of us though. We tend to be...unfriendly to strangers.

My main character is now on rusty knife. The server type is what I prefer after trying all the different ones.

It's first person only so people can't hide behind buildings while watching you, and recipes stay with you when you die. It's annoying having to learn all those again if you do die.

I was playing DayZ, now I'm playing Arma3 Wasteland.

All the sandbox survival and shooting, none of the tedious, luck-driven bullshit.

If thats the case, this game is NOT for you. You will lose your shit. Mentally and in game.

Honestly, it's worth the $20. I've never seen an early access game have so much content that actually works. There are very little bugs, and they talk straight with the community, and the updates come fast.

Day z standalone at this point is a pipe dream that will never be finished unfortunately. Luckily the mod community is still making new mods for arma. Hopefully bohemia interative doesnt buy the rights to wasteland/life etc. or I'm sure those will fail too.
