BIS doesn't usually do this but since they've gotten a lot more popular lately, perhaps they would like to offer preorder bonuses to reward old timer Arma players and entice new ones to commit?

Some cool ideas for potential preorder bonuses:
Steel Case
Map of Limnos
Postcards from pre-war-torn Limnos
Arma themed lensatic compass (maybe replica of in-game version)
Arma themed survival knife (not sure if this would be allowed but for a mature rated game, I don't think its too far fetched?)
Arma themed safety goggles + earplugs
Arma themed medkit
Arma themed balaclava
etc

Post your ideas.

I would appreciate a lot a large and detailed printed map of ingame map of Limnos. Would help a lot eg. to create missions and during flight.
"Flight simulator fans are the most demanding gamers in existence. If a chopper sim doesn't model the absolutely precise velocity needed to successfully auto-rotate after an engine failure, while inverted and during a Hurricane, you can be assured their displeasure will span at least seventeen hundred pages on the game's forums. Seriously, pleasing these guys is harder than curing world hunger." -Bennett Ring, ign.com

Carrier Command has a nice soundtrack coming our way as part of the preorder.
Maps of the islands would be nice though, I loves my Cherno map.

I prefer to have collector edition with metal box for example rather than preorder bonuses, especially digital bonuses :mad:

That's a whole Collector's edition worth $200. :) Pre-order "Bonus" would be something like access to the Alpha demo. In short, for additional cost - anything you like. I'd appreciate if they truly assembled a Collector's edition, or something of a lower-tier like Deluxe with printed Lemnos/Stratis maps, original game soundtrack on a CD and the game itself.

A pistol is more than adequate. Hell, I dispatched an entire platoon one time with a pocket knife.

Teach the AI how to drive. Teach AI Tank drivers to turn their front towards the enemy. Give us supression effects for AI . Make AI ragdoll if they get hit. Give us proper animations for throwing Frags. Give us a proper wounding system. Fix the armored vests so that they donĀ“t protect the whole torso. More Civilian assets. Females. Weapon resting. Give us inertia influenced movement depending on the Weapon you have.

All I would want from the preorder is just the physical copy, IF they actually did let pre orders happen :(
