Congratulations Dean and Bohemia. This is a massive step forward for both of you.
Also congratulations on the big 1 Million mark. If I recall correctly that is about how many copies Operation Flashpoint: CWC sold?
When you first released it, we knew it would be popular, but never this popular. Nice work.
Just don't lose focus on A3 please.
Congratulations Rocket, good job with DayZ mod.
Holy sh1t! I cant believe.
Congratulations Dean and Bohemia. Looking forward to it, but, as said, we want ArmA III D:.
Congratulations guys, hope it'll be a great success for BIS.
On a side note, i'm amazed by how people are never happy : DayZ is a mod of ArmA2:Co ? OMG BIS is loosing its soul by mixing its military game with zombies. DayZ is a stand alone game ? OMG it'll take resources from ArmA3. NeverHappyTM.
DayZ got to this point because of ArmA2's great mod support. Hopefully dayZ will also have mod support.
Congrats Dean, thanks to this successful alternative!
And finnaly BIS, seems the wine got good with time!

I fully expect to have similar experience to Blizzard games:
- Client will be downloadable for anyone
- You'll need an account with a valid game key attached to it to be able to access it
- Always online of course, as it will probably be an MP only thing
- There might be potential issues with the servers being clogged up, especially on release (Just like there is now where you wait to be authed with the Hive once you're connected to the game server)
This will better suit the format DayZ currently wants to be and potentially prevent piracy to a degree.
I'm not shutting down the posibbility for mods outright because they might opt for an approach of official and unofficial servers, where official servers are vanilla and have global persistence where unofficial ones have it local for that server only, and with that the possibility of mods. Something like what BF2 did back in the day.
Apart from that, I can't wait to see what they come up with.
