    Ooh I’ve been looking for a group to play Arma with. What gametypes do you guys play and when do you usually do it?

    • dartt says:

      Hi owenj, come in to the RPS steam chat room and you’ll find people playing ARMA2 most evenings (GMT).

    • Spiny says:

      owenj , dartt cool, expect me along too. I picked it up in the steam sale. I’m presuming a headset is a prereq.

    • Nullkigan says:

      It helps to be able to yell at the medics when you need healing, as otherwise the chatter can get lost, but we don’t strictly require you to have a mic. Being on mumble so we can pretend to coordinate ourselves is looked upon favourably, though!

  2. Nullkigan says:

    This is a link to our long, meandering RPS forums thread. You can also find lots of ARMA-heads in the RPS steam group chat room.

    We play mostly coop and from 6 or 7 in the evenings, GMT. Currently we have people getting together for regular “Tactical Tuesdays” and “Warfare Wednesdays” but are found online throughout the week.

    The server IP is: and the password is “rumpus”. Or you can filter for games by name using Rock or RockPaper. We have a mumble server on the same IP and the default mumble port, with the same password. Tip: Right click and select “local mute” to quiet down some of those hyper energetic youngers.

    We don’t use any mods, so you can jump straight in. However, if you have a bunch of clientside stuff you like, that’s cool too (we don’t block or require anything). If you have missions you’d like to see on the server, let us know in the thread.

    As for the awards, I’d nominate Stillborn Eagle by RPS reader Monty for best mission of the year. Sadly, he’s not released it publicly yet so nomination is difficult :(

    • Vorrin says:

      Thanks for all the info, I had been wondering how the RPS get-together worked, and just bought OA recently, so, as soon as I’m back from holidays, count me in too!

    Hopefully Xeno’s Domi2 Domination mission won’t win again.

    Like it has for the last several years.

  4. MajorManiac says:

    My initial reaction was how this advert misses it demographic.

    But then the ‘AF Tank woman’ sounds pretty useful in ARMA.

  5. Smithson says:

    When’s the joint Operation Reality (ORC) / Rock Paper Shotgun (RPS) gaming session? I heard this was being organized, any prospective dates?
