Not that I dislike ArmA and BIS, but there is a feeling I get occasionally that makes me think that ArmA III is probably my least favorite of the series. But I still like the game nevertheless, and I don't regret the money I spent. I really don't when I remember that I've met people through it, and they're like really good friends to me, which there are people that I know and say that's stupid, but just because I can't see their face or touch them, doesn't mean I don't know them. But the reason I made this is to ask a question I've thought a lot on, and that's why (in my opinion) the Beta was actually superior, and I want to hear what everyone else thinks.
So, there are reasons why the full game can be thought of as better, things like the additions since then when it comes to gear and weapons and things, Zeus (probably my favorite), the fixes made, and the addition of new mods such as RHS and HLC. But I think the Beta was better, for some simple reasons.

1). The lack of Altis Life and KoTH. I hate Altis Life so much, the fact I can't look through the list without having to search for something specific or I'll scroll through for years just to get to the bottom of all the Altis Life's, Wasteland's, and KoTH's for a game that doesn't even play well in those (Playing AL or WL is Breathing Simulator 2016 and getting better gear in KoTH is more aggravating than getting to Tier 5 American Tanks in War Thunder).

2). No naked people. The lack of large mods meant that people didn't run around naked when you got into good old Stratis Invade & Annex, and believe it or not those who didn't take part in the Beta, not everyone ran in Driver Coveralls, Ghillie Suits, or CSAT fatigues.

3). People actually worked together. That's right, people actually did instead of running off on their own. Too many times in the full game have I seen BS stuff happen where one dude ruins the thing me and my buddies were doing, in fact, there was a time where we were going into a side mission, just two dudes testing a mod, and we encountered an MRAP who hadn't seen us yet, so we called in another friend to give us a nice bomb since we had a laser, then some idiot drops in with a Titan MPRL and takes the damn thing out (he was wearing CSAT fatigues) and then his buddies drop right in the AO, quite some time of coordination and planning went down in mere seconds.

4). The lack of Altis. We didn't drop frames every twenty seconds with a nice lag spike and not every AO was a town or city.

What about you guys? What do you guys prefer, whether it be Beta or the full game? (please give us some reasons)

Added 4 minutes later:

This probably should have gone into "Chit-Chat" but I had a whole argument with myself about whether it should or shouldn't because it's exclusively about ArmA III and I settled it with "Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe".
