Just something I have seen and heard from both senior and new players. The difficulty in playing against the AI is getting a little ridiculous. An example is being shot down in a helo 6.5 km from the AO by a jet with endless supplies of missiles. 6 lock ons and down we went for the 7th time.
Today 6.5 km out, three helo rides, 3 deaths due to missles that appear out of fckin nowhere. No where Near the AO in the middle of nowhere.
Rolling up to the AO finally and seeing 5 ****ing tanks again we were all slaughtered before getting any shots off. The other obvious example is the defending where you get three tanks rolling in at once, where finally you get the tanks down only to be bombedby an enemy jet, 4 times. Yesterday I was bombed in a house not once, I was already down, but 7 more times in the same location. We were laying there watching the same bullshit jet drop bomb after bomb on the same location.
6 MAWS HEAT missiles to destroy one tank. Yet our tanks get destroyed when they get hit by a stray 7.62 round from the enemy. 5 snipers on one hillmanaged to snip 16 people in a matter of seconds. And also one managed to fire of 4 rounds in less than a second and gained himself 4 kills. Amazing talent. No AI wound up to the extreme.
I'm not the only one raising this. Several other senior players have also commented it's becoming unplayable and is losing its enjoyment.
As said before alot of new players who have invested in Arma 3 since the free weekend is great but they are leaving in droves to play on another server because of the unplayable, unfair and seemingling biased playing field.
I understand that if you become a viable competitor in killing the enemy, sure krank it up. But the new players are suffering and leaving the server to play another. Not sure if it can be toned down, haven't seen the script or code but if the server and this game is to survive, it may need to be looked at.
Anyway just needed to raise this because even I am starting to get annoyed with the way in which the AI seem to almost learn. And if the senior players can't get ahead, what chance have the newplayers.
Anyway I'll keep playing or now but I'm getting annoyed about the intelligence of the BOTS as are many others.
