Looking for an accepting bunch!

Hey guys,

I stumbled upon some Youtube videos, where lots of crazy shenanigans ensued with a large group of people working together with headsets. So, I had played ARMA before but, never really got into it. Most likely due to lack of social interaction. So,I just bought ARMA II, and am currently in the process of downloading it, as well as DayZ. I was really hoping to find a group of people to play with. However, I have C.P. which really effects my speech. Once you get used to it, it gets a lot easier. In the initial stages though, you'l be able to understand simple one word responses, (yes, no, up, down, 6 o' clock, etc.) I can hear just fine, so I can follow along just fine. Following orders, that type of thing. And, worst case scenario, I'll just have to type it out if I can't relay it clearly enough over the mic.

I want to have fun with this! I know the GB community won't let me down!

I'm really bad at giving orders, but I'd love to play with you. I just started playing in the last week or so as well, but I probably already have a lot of advice I could give you. Tips for staying alive, stuff like that. You're going to have to wait about a week, though, because I'm in the middle of finals and then I have about 400 pages of student writing to grade. After that I'm free though.

My advice for now: Spend several lives dying just to learn the ropes and trust no one.

@Jrinswand: Yeah, sounds good! That's kind of what my first thought was too, getting to know the controls, lay of the land, etc. So, a week sounds perfect. Thanks!

@Frostily: The more the merrier Frostily. Give me a couple of days to get my bearings? Perhaps you and I can get together this weekend, and Jrin can join us once he's done.

What timezone are you two in? I'm in PST -8.00
