Let me start with the fact that I bought ArmA 2:CO to play DayZ. DayZ was fun for a while, but the short of it is I am done with that community for a variety of reasons (can you rage quit an entire mod!?!).
A few months back, I realized how much I love ArmA 2:CO during a furlough from DayZ in which my two buddies and I played a bunch of Wasteland. We played at BMRF.me (which is also where we played DayZ) and when the BMRF Wasteland server dried up we went back to DayZ.
It took us a while, but we all realized that we really would prefer just playing ArmA in one of its various missions or mods. The problem is, its kind of hard to navigate through it all. Having said all of that, I want to find a mod or mission that my friends and I can play that has a consistent community.
What do you all recommend? What should we stay away from?
