    So ive been playing arma 2 vanilla dayz for a while now and been holding out on purchasing arma 3. I heard that arma 3 has no vanilla dayz servers atm, So could someone just tell me what the differences are between this and arma 2?

    if you start comparing this to dayz mod you will find out that arma 3 desolation mod servers performance is outstanding in comparison to,say a highly customized dayz overpoch server like the one i had running a few years ago.
    gameplay-wise desolation redux feels like dayz a lot,but the aim of desolation redux is not to copy dayz mod but create something completely new.something thats like dayz sa wouldve been if they wouldnt have f*cked up :)

    But all the basics of Arma 2 Dayz are in this? like vanilla base building, basic cars and standard weapons? I don't want all the overpoch and epoch. Is that what I can expect when I play this version?

    Id recommend watching a few vids on yt to get a Clue man.

    But with like 1800h in a2oa dayz mod i can honestly tell you dsr is as close as you can get in Arma 3

    So how does base raiding work on dsr? A lot of the articles/yt videos have just been recommendations for the devs.

    I downloaded arma installed all the required mods. I only found 1 server with more than 5 players and it was only russians online lol. Is desolation dead?

    Not really.its just that we have like one Server per Player atm.also people are waiting for the Patch to be released

    For now i would choose a Server with roaming AI and in a few days the update will drop.

    Its my Port of Vemf Reloaded for missions and kegans dynai plugin with some changes for the roamers. "Survive this" in the Server title is no joke in this Case as theres like a hundred hostile units,be it Zombies or npc , around a Player at times depending on location ;)
