Ok, so I played ofp for years and also played arma1 (8+ hrs aday) from launch till Arma2. I've been playing Arma2 sporadically since launch. RPGs and coops have taken over, with some WFs mixed in along the way every now and again (i'm talking populated servers). Every now and again there will be a c&h or a&s hosted by euro servers... Meaning if you're a u.s. based player your SOL if you want to play c&h or a&s maps/gamemodes, bad ones at that.. no offense to anyone.With the exception of the one euro server hosting the PR maps every now and again... PR was good.
I remember playing c&h all throughout arma1.Berzerk was by far the most sophisticated and polished c&h ever created for arma1 or arma2 (vahalla a close second). It was simply heads and shoulders above the rest of the neanderthal c&h's created by moderately talented scripters who simply gave us the base fundamentals of the game mode, and nothing more.Zaphod took c&h to a whole new level with berzerk.Berzerk was basically like playing BF on steroids and ultra realism.Wich, I never cared for BF as a whole, the maps were/are tiny, and had unrealistic mehcanics but i did like the ideas and concepts behind their game modes.And when combined with Armed Assault was like a dream come true for me and many others who liked to hop into random PUB servers and have fun in style... instead of boring c&hs with non existent UIs and bad maps .. yeah i said it!! I like snazzy, polished UIs!!! Z did all of the little things that others wouldn't OR more like couldn't do, to make an phenominal c&h gamemode.
Nowadays, if I want pvp in a pure (without AI) form, the closest thing I have are the various RPGS, with loud and obnoxious teenagers arguing with the ultra serious role players on the ingame voip, wich I turn off asap. The RPGs are fine and dandy, but not my cup of tea as far as playing a mil sim for pure pvp action.
BOHEMIA please make a polished, sophisticated c&h and/or a&s gamemodes to help spark some pure pvp action globally.Lets get a newly found player base in pure pvp form kind of like the COOP DayZ is now.Thanks.
