How did you find out about RPUK server?


Recommended Posts

Got here by @Gregory way back in February 2014.

Been playing on an Stratis life server back than while game was still in early Alpha stage and when that 1 got shut down done some milsim and joined here when greg invited.

RPUK ID 451 to join server and  Forum ID 12 to register......i am still enjoying it till this day.

But planning to leave? nope Never as long as it allows me by work or ect.

Just sorta stumbled on it after playing a bunch of other servers. Nothing really grabbed my interest on other servers, but here it felt more "refined", in a way. Other servers felt far more casual, but RPUK was more of a perfect blend of serious but also fun. Too serious gets frustrating, not serious enough gets frustrating too. Just  stuck around after I found the server.

@James Travers Told me about Arma 3 and altis life wayyy back in like 2014 on a gmod community we were both part of. At the time my PC was too shit to play so eventually, In late 2016, I got an upgrade. And at the time I was addicted to CS:GO. I was playing CS with a friend when I mentioned I had a £5 steam gift card I hadn't used, and asked for reccomendations for games. He decided to noballs me into buying 2 keys. I gave in,with hopes low, however my hope was regained in about a millisecond when I saw a flash of gold slowly drifting into the centre of my screen. 

Once 5 minutes of screaming hysterically on the floor had passed, I take a look and see I had unboxed a Bayonet Marble fade Factory new (Value then was around £250). I kept it for a while ,feeling like a god every time somebody complemented my worthless bunch of pixels that added absolutely nothing to gameplay, before I decided I would sell it on the steam market in 2017 to buy some games for my new PC.  ArmA caught my eye and triggered the memory of being told about Altis life and how much greater it is than DarkRP. So I used my funds to buy it.

One painfully long install time later, I see that @Quinntastic, also a member of the gmod community I used to play on, is on an altis life server, also the one James played. I connect, get given a nice amount of starting money by Quinn, and off i went.

The chances of all this happening are incredibly low, but thanks to L O R D  G A B E N  here I am today, still enjoying myself.

I was copilot for a guy and he told me I had to join an UK altis life server, there were 2 so I arrived here. I didn't know anything and used youtube to survive, when I finally got stuff, that guy said I was in the wrong server. Me being so lazy, I just continued playing here because I had a black SUV. + @Wayfarer his jokes and our NPAS patrols are way too cool to be left behind. And @Pavlic his jokes and bad driving skills also made me stick 🙂 I enjoy it here thanks to a lot of friends I made, these were just 2 of my biggest friends, but I've some more, like rocky.fm, lostie, perspective,...

You've never flied with me, and I'm still a way better pilot than you. If I navigate and say go straight, I mean follow the road, not drive straight into a forrest at 500kmh

I joined the sever almost two years ago after playing on multiple modded servers, I had had enough of them and wanted to try Altis life.. I found RPUK and joined just to see what it was like, I was adiment I’d be banned on my first day but no, I met @Jackdevo with his old gang the phantom they helped me a lot. I doubt I’d still be here if I hadn’t met such nice people on my first day.. I joined the police and invited some friends onto the server.. got blacklisted and created a gang called Surge with some old members and then yeah.. I got hooked..

For me? Well In around early 2017 I had just acquired my brand new PC that had more capacity to run games than the potato I’d had since around 2014. I was hella excited to play all these games I’d stupidly bought a few years ago, not realising I couldn’t run them (Red Orchestra, Gmod etc.). It took me around 4 months to cycle through them all and they were really good months, before finally coming across the crown jewel of Arma 3. I loved Arma 2 despite only having 20fps And huge lagspikes, and so decided to give it a try.

There I was, sat staring at the menu screen in awe and excitement, before clicking onto multiplayer and trying out this peculiar, brand new game mode called ‘King of the Hill’ with my friend George. I found myself to be pretty good at it thanks to Arma 2 skillz, though my friend George quickly left in frustration.

We decided to look for another server, and George showed me this ‘Altis Life’ server he’d played. I had fond though laggy memories of Takistan life, and decided to give it a go. 

It was meh. Like most hobos we didn’t read the rules and we broke roleplay almost 24/7, though luckily we were never caught. We retired, bored after a week with 2 million in our banks and eyes gleaming on the summer sale, we didn’t return for about a year. 

Then, in March just after my birthday, we had a few more friends to play Arma with and decided to give the server a try, and we were completely baffled. This is so much better than we originally thought! We were hooked and played nonstop on a daily basis. We eventually gave it a break after a month, but a month later we were  back and haven’t left since!

I stopped playing arma for like a year and was playing CS:GO for most of the year. Towards the end of the year I got super bored of CS:GO because since I have a vac ban I was matched with cheaters and there were so many things Valve didn't fix. It was all skins. So I decided to look for some games and remembered I had Arma 3, so I hopped on and RPUK was the first server I joined.

Really happy I joined this server first. It introduced me to a great community with great RP. It really got me into ArmaLife and I'm grateful for that.

Now when I hop on there's no RP, I wonder why.
