Sounds good, started playing this after the QL. still getting used to the handling of the cars coming from f1 2012 but competing against real people instead of AI has been super fun so far. Living in Australia I don't know how the times will work but if we do Saturday night races (SF time) then that'll be a fun Sunday afternoon for me.

@SamStrife: There's 15 to 20ish servers with at least 2 per region and at least 10 US servers. You can't host private servers because they need to be approved by the mod developers but you really want those other players there anyway.
@MrBoBo: They were talking about making it a standalone game but most people on the forums just want it to be official DLC. In any case they are porting the mod over to Arma 3 when that comes out.
So we all know about Arma 2, a military blah blah simulator blah blah helicopter leaves without you and you have to wait 30 minutes before it respawns blahdy blah. It just hit #4 on steam's top selling selling list in the EU and #5 in the US and apparently this is the result of a zombie/survival mod created by one or a few of the developers of ArmA 2 itself. The mod seems to draw inspiration from The Walking Dead tv show featuring new weapons such as a crossbow for silent kills as well as emphasizing more on player to player interactions and atmosphere than it does on the slaughter of zombies. Ammo is scarce and usually only found in the abandoned towns that are scattered throughout Arma's 225 square km map adding some risk vs reward situations where you might find a heap of ammo but then startle a zombie resulting in you having to use it all to fight off the ensuing horde. All your progress is saved on a character server meaning you can stop at any point, switch to a different server and still have all your guns and equipment. If you like games such as the STALKER series but really wanted it to be a COOP/ moderately multiplayer online experience with servers that hold 50+ people or you're German then I encourage you to check it out. http://www.dayzmod.com/
