Seems most of the time is spent communicating with your team planning your attack, while the rest of the match is simply shooting the enemy. Strategy is everything.
Yeah, I've been fascinated with what I've seen on Youtube and would really love to get in on the action. Problem is, so far, of the only servers I've been been able to joing, 1 was a heavily modded roleplay one, and the other was just a free-for-all (this meant a lot of team-killing). So, can you play ARMA as it was intended on a public server, or do you need to get some friends together or join a clan or something?
Oh, and do you spawn where you died by default in the game? That's how it was in a server I played in, and it seemed like a preposterously bad idea which lead to spawn-killing.
Still, despite the negative tone of this post, I've had a lot of fun with the editor (I bet putting some time in creating a proper mission would lead to a great gameplay experience) and I hope to get in on some proper MP action soon. Seeing as this is free, I'd urge anyone interested in proper tactical shooters to try it.
