Been playing GR:FS on PS3 with an EagleEye (the PC version seems like a disaster) and I am getting quite bored with the quasi-run n gun gameplay (plus the maps are tiny)and I'm looking for something along the lines of the original GR. I am in an organized clan for GRFS but as with consoles my squad is most likely moving to DUST. With all the buzz surrounding ARMA2 and the DAYz mod I decided to try the free version. To my surprise I think I have found what I'm looking for. I'm going to buy ARMA2 CO this week (hopefully on sale as I am short on cash at the moment) and had some questions regarding O.N.E. Is it a Clan? or just a place to go for multi-player? Is it organized? is there training. Can someone clarify for me before I take the leap.
Oh and one more question.... Should I get the DLC's... are they worth it with all the mods out there?
ONE is basicly a mod pack that includes stuff needed to play on the SimHQ server (apart from the maps). SimHQ has 2 arma2 nights/mornings, monday night at i think 8EST .. or 1am current UK time .. and thursday night/morning at the same time. Its quazzie serious, theres no perm ranks and you can take any role you like (unless the poor bloke who took squad leads wants you somewhere else) but run n gun is a strict no no (unless your the only one left alive!) and you have to follow your team leaders orders, who in turn has to follow the squad leaders orders etc etc. Training is "on the job" so to speak, but the more you know before hand the easier it is
As for DLCs, the BAF one is well worth it. You can still use the content in missions (although with low rez textures) even you dont have em so you can always pick them up at a later date if you want to.
