For those who won't buy A3 because of Steam, all I can say is I'll be having the best 5 minutes of my life before my PC explodes in a massive fireball engulfing me as I laugh from dying at the awesomeness of Arma3.

Right. So now ArmA2 is popular, but it's popular for the wrong reasons. Guys should just chill the fuck out & all. Military gamers are not going to be forgotten.
ArmA's military-simulation elements (armour, damage, detection, targetting, counter-measures) are really pretty slap-dash. Its primary strength and true identity is as an open world sandbox which is the foundation on which both the military gaming and role-playing (including Day Z) have always depended. I actually think it'd be a good thing for BI to focus on the sandbox a little more, if you truly dig the military simulation then you really ought to be using ACE anyway, vanilla systems are just too irritating and inconsistent.
They need to push the realism a little farther, though. Many of ACE's features have to be awkwardly tacked on with scripts because the game doesn't provide a good base.
That said, the most important thing they can do is improve playability of controls and UI (without sacrificing depth) and improving. the. ever. loving. AI.
DayZ got so old so fast anyways...
More customers for BIS product equals better product for us why are you guys always fucking tripping out about it.
BIS isn't going to dumb down Arma for DayZ, if anything it will become its own IP.
Arma 3 Alpha is amazingly stable for me lots of good fixes BIS! Highly looking forward to beta and full release!
On the other hand, maybe Day Z buys us a few more days at the firing range with recording equipment, or an Xaitment license...
It's funny how people running around handing out parking tickets in Chernarus Life or whatever it's called didn't cause this much fuss.
