  1. Mission 2: No Man's Land or Sky 2nd Helicopter Pilot Zeus: @Forked @UniDigit @coloneljack1234Platoon: @RezonathSquad: @seami + Insane(F-18) Started writing this when I was waiting for orders in the Wildcat. Zeus Feedback: Stop using mortars without physically placing one on the map. This is good practice as it gives the game something to target. Random SU-25 not being told there will be enemy fast movers. Scaling of enemy assets to the size of the game. I saw multiply attack MI-8s, BTRs and even a T-90. Scale assets you give at the start of the mission. If you are respawning assets respawn all of them. As both heli pilots had nothing to do after being shot down by random lock on missiles out of are view distance. Don't expect new mechanics such as sling loading to work well or at all. Slow mission would work better with a bit more planning. Always except the players to do what they want and maybe not what you planned them to do. Greatest GM/DM/ZEUS tip ever. Platoon Feedback: Eliminate all AA so you can task air assets for help. We spent 100% of the mission with full ammo in the CAS. Communication broke down when any PLT role died. If you don't here anything back after 3 comms checks, assume the role of PLT until they are back. Just follow the briefing and it should be fine. Use all you assets. Squad Feedback: It was good. But boring AF doing nothing. 5 out of 5 would fly with you guys again. (No free peanuts) Everyone else: Comms was a clusterfuck when Platoon was dead. Sort shit out. Thank you the squads (B,D and E) in the back of my heli for being quiet when I was flying. It really helps to keep a level head and to keep me from crashing. Cookies for each of you. Spacing. When I was in the observer camera (dead) I kept seeing full squads all sat behind the same rock. Mortars negate rocks.

  3. Hey guys and gals I just wanted to share my story and how I got into ARMA and how I wish my old group was more like FK and vice versa. I used to play daily with a group around 40ish of people called abadfeeling which had a bit of a small youtube following. A lot of us got into ARMA just via playing the DayZ mod like probably 50% of the people here. We started to play basic ARMA 2 Arrowhead missions and started recording more videos of the sessions and having more and more fun with them each time. One day one of the members hosted a session on his server with a couple of mods and it started to grow on me. Then we started to do missions weekly and a sub group was formed from this love of ARMA 2 Arrowhead. AnARMAFeeling. It started great with people coming in from outside of the group and via Reddit and other steam groups. Having missions on Fridays and Sundays and where always full and some of them took several hours but every dicked about at some point. I was always known for Squad leading Charlie (that is why I like to pick Charlie), we would either be all dead 15 minutes in or be the last squad standing. The missions where always different and normally we would not run the same mission for at least a couple of months before rotating it back in. Every mission was different and people had set loadouts and set objectives as there was no Zeus. I have invited a couple of people to here to join us when they can. The role-playing was always on point no matter the mission. The group stopped doing missions and everybody faded away. But all this time I always want to get back into missions that where realistic and sometimes stupid. Thank you FK for providing that for me after a couple of years of searching for a group that is welcoming and full of people that want to play other games as well together. Here is a couple of videos from that old group. Thank you all.
  4. This is a gathering feedback for my mission I ran from around 3PM to 5PM GMT on 09/04/2017 for 3+ Squads and Flight crew. I would like to run some missions similar to this in the future. I know I need to get better at setting the fog and the night time. Scaling the enemies for Flight crew in F/18. Zeus: Platoon: Squad:
  5. To all 3 of you, thank you. I only suggested this rule as @FLEXFIRE had a go at me on a mission last night for not stopping the vehicle when we where taking fire. I even was saying out loud directed to him during I was driving we were taking fire and the MRAP's tires went orange and then the hull I was going to take us to cover rather than letting everyone die. He said I ignored his orders and kept going.
  6. New rule suggestion: Drivers/Pilots of Transport vehicles may disregard any LZ or Stop orders if vehicle is taking fire and there is other cover options available.
