I have played games for most of my life. I really started playing online when i was 8 i had a Xbox 360 and played it most of the day. I really started getting into rp about 3 years back. I did not have a PC so i played watch dogs rp’s and sadly Minecraft rp’s for a short time.
One Christmas i got a two in one work space pc, it sucked. I downloaded a game called Unturned and reached 100 hours with in my first week. I got into roleplay on that game quite quickly and then i bought Arma after watching Arma 3 life videos. It looked super fun and i already had enjoyed life rp’s before.
When finishing the download i found that i could barely run Arma 3 at all. It ran at lower then 20 fps and ran at exactly 20 fps when playing scenarios. So even though i could not play servers i played alot of single player and got quite good at pvp. I did not enjoy it as much as i did rp on Unturned and such. Fast forward getting grounded a couple times to the next christmas, i received a 900 dollar gaming pc. (specs will be located in the lower end of message)
I instantly downloaded Unturned, i wanted to see how well i could run it since it already was a very low texture game. After seconds of walking around i was amazed at having over 30 fps. It was very smooth and hitting 180 fps at full settings. I then thought of Arma 3 and instantly downloaded it. Once downloaded i joined a Arma 3 life server (Asylum Altis life) Had a lot of fun but quickly noticed that no one rp’ed they just shot and robbed each other and spent a lot of time grinding drugs just to get shot on the way to the ATM.
In conclusion it was disappointing and i didn't really understand how others got on a real Arma 3 rp with mods and such. I generally thought i could never join one. But a couple days ago i found this website and researched into other modded rp’s and found that they are alot out there but not alot like this.
That is where i am now, i apologize if you weren't looking for a life story i tried to veer it towards gaming and rp.
