In his effort to carry out the mission, he will face the dangers of modern warfare, an unforgiving environment, and the consequences of his own decisions...

one of the worstest game ever:
- all of its features are not properly added like physx etc.
- no ponds/rivers/inland water and that for a game which was release in 2013 but in arma 2 ponds were supported ?!
- very bad performance in SP aswell as in MP.
- Low CPU usage, some parts of the engine are very outdated like the CPU usage. This Game runs mostly on one Core.
- Its a sandbox game, but its more limited than most people know, for example: this game can not run huge battles with many AI. this game is more made for small spec ops missions or zombie survival missions where you are alone as survivor fighting zombie AI. one of the reason for that is that the CPU usage of this engine is ****. so its a very limited sandbox game which does not let you make things what you want, only if you accept huge FPS problems.
- the engine itself is very limited in many terms: modeling is very limited, some modder who made buildings for arma 3 abadoned theyr project due to the limitations. same for terrain in terms of object placement and size and and and..
- NO proper multi-core / multi-threading and 64bit support and that in 2013 and for a large scale game like this, multi-core / multi-threading & 64bit is a MUST!
- Alot of problems with the AI

now to the devs why they are one of the worstest out there:
- the devs are only fixing minor bugs, and making small optimizations but giving the game a great FPS boost by adding proper multi-core / multi-threading support does not happen.
- the devs didnt fixed many AI problems and now the guy who works on VCOM AI, fixed the AI driving which was not fixed by any BI dev for 13 years! i cant believe that a modder has to fix what BI didnt fixed in such long time.
- BI dont care when people steal and selling mods and i will explain why in the community part:

I totally agree with you these are the worst devs ever they are lazy they take some of the best stuff and dumb it down like the gfx in 2011.Then they still use an engine the was out of date back in 1997 when it came out and nothing has changed since then only this horrible ragdoll phyx the game I'm making that's going to replace this garbage.

Dude ******* chill.Maybe it is bad for you but for some of us,it is good.I mean,almost all you listed in here aren't even major problems.I mean,who cares for a ******* pond?Also you can make large scale battles in the editor,just made a beach landing with 2 LCAC with 75 soldiers in each of them.And about 50 defenders.You don't expect a large scale operations like 1000 vs 1000.The world would be so laggy with those players,vehicles etc that the games sales will suffer.Very bad performance?I get 40 fps minimum on my GTX870M.And this is a laptop video card,on Very High settings!

And ARMA 3 is 64-bit btw.BI even recommends 64-bit.

enough people and especially modders care about ponds, ticket on feedbacktracker + countless theards are created about ponds and the majority says = we want ponds back.

arma 3 isnt 64bit xD if it would be 64 bit, the game would use more than 4gb ram but it doesnt xD

I don't really care about the community or vanilla game. There are some good mods and my computer can run the game well so eh.

why the arma community is one of the worstest:
- people start to steal mods and selling as theyr own for money. especially after arma 3 life when arma 3 life got away with it and BI took no action. now more and more people start to steal mods or models from other games and sell them. last time, a french life mod was found that they stole models from other arma 3 modders and sold them, same for a mission which can be found at the BI forum and that all after they saw BI took no action against arma 3 life.
- alot of fanboys are out there who cant accept critism against BI or arma 3. alot of community members cant deal with it when you speak about the problems of arma 3 (especially when it comes to the CPU problem). most members in the forum are buttsniffer who has theyr head in bohemias ***.

Your statement about game performance and AI are correct, but game is not bad at all. It is the best military game ever made, even if there are issues to be solved. I think you really are missing some MP action.

A great game that is like a gust of fresh air in the smog of modern shooters, this is an intelligent and very well made game that shows thing as they are, none of the shenanigans you see in battlefield, COD etc. The developers are open, honest and upfront with any issues or bugs and take player input seriously instead of just grabbing your money and running. Being Greek myself what I particularly liked was that any in game signs, box labels etc. written in Greek are correct and accurate, the architecture…
