On 11/23 the Ranger Squad Wasteland server will be shutdown. 

I just wanted to thank some of the loyal players we picked up during the summer that made the server great and very popular for a little bit.

Hopefully some of the regulars will still stop by and maybe join us in whatever we're playing at the time.

For anyone who is interested, you can get the server scripts here: http://rangersquad.com/ARMA2/RS_Wasteland.Chernarus.zip

This was my first time scripting in a fps and it was a lot of fun.  The two things that will stand out to me are 1) The tractor being a food and water source since that was the first time I did something "real" other than tweaking what vehicles and weapons loaded and 2) The Scientist mission - either the most popular or the least popular mission we had  :hahaha:

I'll be un-stickying some of the older info threads on the server, so for historical purposes you can find them here:

'Twas a great run! Thanks for the awesomeness  :rockin satan:


Still the best Wasteland server I've ever been on.  Thanks for the memories.


I'll add the link on my ancient reddit post. People still msg me now and then asking about the server and if there are any others like it.

I enjoyed basically everything that was added, good work.


I'll truly miss all of you and this server. I have never had such a pleasing experience on any other server but yours. From the game play to the actual team members itself. Best memories I've ever made on any Arma server were made on this one. Thank you to all the players and the Ranger Squad Staff for making that server a fun and relaxing environment! Hopefully we'll see each other around! (I also found another 20 minutes of game play of ranger squad.. I'll post a link) :the clapper:


Thanks buddy, I miss it too. Arma 3 Wasteland has been constantly improving. I see potential for another server in our not too distant future. But currently most of us are playing Bf4 and Breaking point.


Breaking Point has given me hope for ARMA III. Wasteland should be good soon



5.5 years later... I loved Breaking Point though.
