Many of you have probably already seen this news item but we wanted to have it frontpaged again as a last time for obvious reasons.
I hope most of you have already noticed but we have a new .net fileserver in place. You should all be seeing some really good downloadspeeds on any of our download links.
This new server replaces the oldie we have been using since 2008. Yes that is correct, we use (read abuse) all hardware we buy for as long as possible as running things here is not cheap.
First that server was used to host the Armaholic.com website on but when we bought a new server to host the sites we started using it as one of our main file servers.

The new file server is prepared for our future plans. Yes we do have those, no matter the activation of the Steam Workshop. In the background we are working very hard on our new website, which however sadly due to some personal health issues is massively delayed, and once that goes live we will further inform you of what you can expect from our website and services. We have huge plans and this new file server is just our first step.
We might have something interesting to offer sooner, but it depends wether we find it worthy to include in the current website.

We have been saving money for this new server for many months as specs like these cost a lot, but in our opinion it is money well spend! Here is a short specs list so you get an idea of what you are going to abuse:
  • Intel Xeon E5-2630
  • 32GB Memory
  • Hardware RAID10
  • 1x drive for OS
  • 4x 1TB SSD
The server has been hosting all your requests since last night and although we are now running at over 400MB/s bandwidth (and this is not the most busy time) I am happy to say the server does hardly notice you are all there downloading our files. So, its looking good in the sense of being able to fullfill all your needs regarding the content we host!

This new server together with the French (.fr) server we use to host files should be good enough to support us for a long time and we can even expand it if its needed.

We try to never ask for donations where it is not really needed cause as you all know we use ads on our website which cover the expenses we make. Without those ads we could never offer you the service we do these days, we hope most of you realise that!
But this new piece of hardware is going to set us back financially big time. So, here we are and we ask everyone who would like to and is financially able, to donate some money which we can use to pay the first bill for this server (purely the setup costs).

We thank you for your support!

"This Armaholic review video presents two Arma 3 terrains by Makhno, FSF Kalu Khan and FSF Dariyah.

FSF Kalu Khan:
In this endless outdoor playground, you'll find steep mountains with cloud-covered peaks great for hiking, biking, and trying to not get killed by those guys here that just appeared over the next ridge.

FSF Dariyah:
This is a Desert theme terrain.
There are no roads at the time, but maybe it'll stay this way as I'm quite fond of off-road vehicle patrols of the kind the LRDG used to do."

I am sure, and hope, most of you are aware of our Xmas caption competition we announced a few weeks back giving everybody the chance to win some nice Arma Steam games donated by Nicholas.
We have already recieved a few hundred submissions and are enjoying them all very much.

However, as we promised earlier we will be giving away some more games!
Yes, you are reading it right! We are giving away even more games than the 3 Arma packages you can win already.
Jeza has been so kind to donate three additional games for us to give away!.

These games will be given away in a way we will decide after the Xmas caption competition has closed (26 december 2013 23:59:59). We might pick some random winners or we might choose the winners specifically, it all depends on what you, the community, send us.
Now for the prizes:
  1. FarCry 3
  2. Bioshock Infinite
  3. Dishonored

So, if you think you might be bored during the holidays and feel like getting a chance to win one of our nice games make sure to post your entry in the Armaholic Xmas caption competition thread.


And remember, the above games are additional prizes next to the ones we are already giving away:
  1. Arma X: Aniversary Edition
  2. Arma 2 complete collection
  3. Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition


What do you have to do?
    Use one or more of the images we provide below and add some caption to it. Thats all!
    The caption could be anything, just let your fantasy flow and submit your entry in this thread.


Rules:
  • You have until 26 december 2013 23:59:59 to submit your entry.
  • Anyone can submit as many entries as he/she wants.
  • Normal forum rules apply.
  • After the competition has closed we (Armaholic staff) will choose 3 winners. Armaholic staff and Armaholic team member are excluded from entering the competition!
  • Winners are simply choosen on the caption added, if we like the added caption best you will be one of the winners.
  • We will announce the winners as soon as possible after the closing of the competition and you will recieve your Steam gift code from Nicholas.

Important! Important!
Some of you submitted edited images and that is not allowed. Except for text you should not modify the images as that makes the competition unfair.
Everyone uses the same images and you can only edit them to add text to it!
