  1. Just to build onto this, I think it's safe to say that the community's focus has shifted from ARMA 3 to Black Desert Online. Black Desert Online (NA) has made some changes and fixed some of the problems our community took issue with about a year when the game first came to North America. New and returning player get access to special servers for a month that give 100% bonus experience, allowing you to quickly level up to 50 in less than a day and soon after to level 56 where you get you're class's awakening weapon. So if you're like me, played warrior and didn't like doing no damage well now warriors get a big ass two handed sword that actually kills stuff. Our intention in BDO is to build up our characters enough to where we can participate in guild node wars. To attempt this we've teamed up another group of players who have been playing Black Desert Online continuously and have knowledge about the end game we lack and desperately need. So what does this mean for ARMA 3? If mean's stuff like the cold war campaign is put on hold. The server may also be shut down. I cannot confirm anything about this currently. It's up to the person(s) who pay for the ARMA 3 server to decide. Inevitably this community will come back to ARMA 3 sometime in the future. We always have and will, the game has years of amazing mods supporting it's replay ability. If you wish to know when we will come back to ARMA 3 just register on this website and you will receive an email when the time comes for VG to return to playing ARMA 3 as our primary game. If you you're one of the many players who does not wish to follow us into Black Desert Online that perfectly fine. I encourage to stay networked with everyone you enjoyed playing with here and keep playing with them on other servers, meet new friends and then when VG brings a server back to ARMA 3 bring them with you and we'll all have fun together playing ARMA 3 again. I'm trying to find a spot to farm away from everyone else and get jumped by 4 weebs claiming they own everything.
  2. Black Desert Online has improved itself as a MMORPG massively. We're also taking a more casual approach and it's been tons of fun. If you want to join in, please let us know!
  3. We no longer play Black Desert Online. A number of factors have contributed to the reason for this. Castle siege content was delayed long past the expected time for it's delivery. When we started playing BDO we had the intention of attempting to become a high end PvP guild so a lot of time was invested into gearing up and staying competitive against other guilds. Unfortunately due to the way the game is designed, you can never really reach a certain point where you can stop grinding gear and just focus on fun. On top of that, content that changes and adds new items to the game is released with only a days notice. So of course eventually a lot of our members got burnt out on the game. Work we put into being ready for castle sieges would suddenly become over turned by a new update that adds new armor or weapons that are better than what we already had. The majority of us agreed that the game was becoming more and more stressful like a chore and not any fun anymore so we stopped playing it. We no longer have a MMO to play as a large group. However in the mean time, while we wait for something else or search for a new MMO, Proverbs is in the process of creating a ARMA 3 campaign for us to play. If you don't know what ARMA 3 is, it's a massive military combat sandbox game on steam. It's more intricate than your average shooter and slower paced but it can be really fun to play in with a group of friends. Here's a link to the ARMA 3 Campaign event that starts on July 1st. In between now and July 1st we will be playing ARMA 3 sporadically to get ready for the campaign. Feel free to join in on any of those sessions to get your game set up and working and or to practice playing as a team. If you have any further questions or concerns talk to Proverbs on Teamspeak or just PM him on this site. To end this post here's a nice picture of DarkAvengerx7 and Proverbs that someone, can't remember who made this, photo shopped. LOL XD
