I'm already quite impressed with how active the community is!
Most of the time I'll be playing, a friend of mine will most likely be sitting next to me playing as well, but havn't planned on any skyping/TS. It kinda ruins the immersive experience as you're saying
And as of the Lore, I've read it all. Twice! But have also read quite a few other DayZ lores, so it gets quite hard not to mix them at times
And thank you for the warm welcome!
Sadly my whitelist application has gone on cooldown. Managed to leave out the last of my story when copying it from notepad
Was whitelisted around a month ago, but i didn't have the time to play just yet.
But now i do! Can't wait to get started
