Had this games for 4 months now and enjoyed it finished all the campaigns and played flashpoint back in the day. Got the hang of the vehicles and the command system etc. Started playing MP a week ago and so far my impression of the community is its very clicky and off putting.
All the servers i can find have restrictions on who and what people can fly and some other strange restrictions. I can understand this on the whole as games would be flooded with new players who don’t take the time to learn to fly before they play MP.
But the problem is despite numerous requests I find your left at the base for up to 20 min just waiting for a ride to the AO. And they are helicopters just sitting in the base doing nothing are have clan members sitting in them while they are away from the game. And new players are restricted from flying them.
And its a waste of time trying to get a lift in any arma to the AO as the click kicks in and pilots pick there friends up etc and I don’t want to spend 20 min to drive to a AO and get there and its been taken .
So it takes me to my heading do Bohemia provide any servers were there are no restrictions on who can fly what and no admin playing god ? I am not really interested in joining a clan and if I wanted to follow a military command I would still be in the army. I just want t pick the game up now and then and enjoy all it has to offer online .
And having read through a number of posts from new players who made mistakes in there postings and the subsequent response from some of the moderators. I can fully understand why so many people are put off MP. Despite this Its a great community and its good to see a developer that interacts with its players .Just not a great setup for new players are players who don’t want to join a clan .
