    I was originally going to buy arma ii last year for DayZ but they said the standalone was coming. Now its april and there still isn't the standalone or any new news on its release date :(

    Should I buy arma ii now instead of just waiting?
    I know that arma iii just came out but I think arma ii has a better player base anyway because more people bought it.

    I most likely will be trying out other mods on arma ii but DayZ is the main reason I'm getting it

    So should I buy it now or just wait even longer until Dayz standalone?

    WAIT, a friend of mine has arma version and the private beta and said it is smoother and less bugs. Plus they will be updating more the standalone when it comes out

    Definitely wait. The current DayZ mod for Arma 2 is buggy as fuck and is just a pain in the ass to play.
