Hi,

I am sure as most new comers to the game have found out already when joining MP games online:

Most public servers are over run by kids who think this is COD or think team kill is cool and they have no concept of team play.

Also I am not a fan of Evo and Dom missions where in the name of realism, you spend hours waiting for transport (I already do that in the morning during rush hour!) and by the time you get to the battle field the battle is over and next thing you know your wife is coming in saying your time on computer is up! You plea " But hon I have not fired a single round go yet" goes unheared!

Other option is to join a clan, which sometimes means dedicating time for practice and a bit too formal for some.

If you are looking for a casual drop in, laid back relxaed MP with just a few mature people without having to say Sir every 6 seconds, then please post in this thread. I figured we can have 6-8 people in a fun semi realistic co/op and maybe PvP MP missions.

So here is a top 10 list of reasons of why you should join us:

10. A great way to get out of house work .. hun I have to fight for my country!

9. You love saying stuff like "Alpha tango foxtrot bravo"

8. You can go to battle during summer in an air-conditioned truck umm .. living room!

7. You can eat a snack during battle. No more need for MREs (meals refused by etheopians)

6. You don't have to follow the Geneva convention rules!

5. Superiors may now be addressed as "Dude"

4. No more PE runs every morning because you can sprint 10 miles without a pause!

3. You will look great in BDUs (Battle Dress Uniform) regardless of how you look in real life!

2. Some of the women (and guys?!) look rather hot (don't ask don't tell policy!)

and the number one reason to join us ..

1. Next mission: an all-out invasion of a women only nudist colony!



We use a few addons to enhance game/AI

We use Team Speak 3. So please download TS 3 client.



Missions we play (they change often):

The Hill
Coop: Takes place on Afghanstan like map. Uphill battle to clear enemy. Enemy is smart and utilize their mortars very effectively. Company level operations. Mostly infantry tactics with artillery support.
Vimeo:

Devils Castle
Coop Mission we get most requests for.

Behind enemy lines mission (like many other missions). The Only difference is, the AI is very aggressive and will utilize KILLER DOGS to track you down. Also enemy has working flash light to aid in their hunt .. along with a few other surprises ;)
Team play is a must to finish this mission.

The Hunt
PvP coop. A coop group is hunted by human enemy who controls AI squads. Can a human be tougher than AI commander?

Are you brave enough to find out? :)

Snipers in the Jungle (PvP)
This a mission for those who fancy themselves as snipers.

It is a TvT (2 Russian Snipers vs 2 American Snipers) set in Razoreniya Island.
Reason for choosing Razoreniya Island: Very dense Realistic looking jungle which is excellent for camo snipers!

Mission has a lot of custom sound effects to add realism and emersion
It has also rain script to make sure it is raining on all machines in MP! ONLY for die hard snipers .. or wanna bees! :)

Show me the money
Coop: Sneak into a Libyan town under attack to steal some money! Just don't get caught in the middle!

We play on Sun evenings. Drop us a line if this sounds like your cup of tea.

Cheers.
Captain Bravo

I rarely play MP these days, due to the fact that most servers are as you say: "full of kids who think its cod" and the fact that most servers run with boring mods like evo and domination.

I got a ventrillo 15 slot server at my disposal. My steam account is: landstriker and my xfire: landstriker

Hook me up if you wanna play a round of ArmA 2 for some fun and laidback teamplay.

This is the sort of thing I'm looking for,as i dont have the time to join a clan and be regulated as when to play.

I aswell stalk the servers in the vain hope i may stumble on a good game.

Would be good to do some small squad work to learn and get into the game in a more relaxed way.

I am glad I am not the only tired of evo and domination mods and crazy COD kids running on public servers yet not into the clan scene!

I will set up a simple co/op game this Thu 7pm (UK time zone) that should be fun and mature. If we can have 4-6 players that would be great.

I wil send password to everyone interested.

Cheers.

I don't think joining a clan/squad means you are regulated on how or when you play. this assumption may prevent you from enjoying some great company, and that is unfortunate.

I'm more of less in the same boat as yourself, but more into 'co-op' MP at the moment (mainly because I'm still becoming accustom to ARMA II).

Feel free to add me on STEAM (if you use it) - 'paul_londonlad'

I will send everyone pm with info later this eve.

As much as I hate addons in MP games, the one I have found most useful is the Archangel addon that reduces the unrealistic AI super aim accuracy! It makes the fights more realistic and lasting longer. Aim weapons (snipers,marksman) are not afected.

Archangel Download: http://www.avmg30.ds...sen_weapons.rar

See you online tomorrow at 7pm I hope! :partytime:

OK ill download it and install the mod,sounds like a good one.
I'm still OK for Thursday at 7.00 just need to confirm how we are going to communicate either public ts as you said or maybe try the voice over net.

I added a post in the forum about the in game voice net seemed to get mixed feeling as to how good it is.

Add me, my XFire profile is in my sig, I don't mind a bit of co-op.

Will be available for a game Saturday afternoon (GMT time zone) and Sunday, probably all day unless I'm hungover :D

Add zombiemod72 as a friend to your XFire account and we'll have a game together.

Thanks to those who joined yesterday. It was fun (even though my group vehicle got annhiliated early in the mission by AT!) :o

Lets plan on a session this Sun at 5pm.

If you can make it please let me know.

Cheers. :bounce3:
