I think they are statistically figuring out what isn't actually used by most people and cutting it out.

While me and quite a few others find it necessary to have the option to change key bindings, the grand majority of the players won't change their key bindings, and if they would have, they'd probably just be making things worse for themselves.

Then again, so far I've noticed most games don't cut this out. Yet. But I do notice a lot of games having difficulty modes so easy you can just go AFK or click randomly and you still won't die/lose.

@galzohar: It seems to me like you enjoy randomization, but you're not yet able to accept the element of uncertainty that true speedrunners have come to embrace?

No. I'm just not able to accept that any significant amount of speedrunners would embrace the element of uncertainty like you claim they would.

Personally, I couldn't care less about speedrunner-friendliness.

Yes, for example in ArmA 2 I've yet to find someone who knows what "evasive forward" means (note: You'll only understand this joke if you've experimented with binding a key to it in the game).

Community missions tend to cater to the people they were intended for. That makes sense to me though. So basically the reason you can't find servers with missions you like is because there aren't enough players willing to play them. If there were, there would be people making those missions. In fact they were most likely already made, but simply not played on servers due to no demand.

If you want, we could arrange a Steam group where we would announce DTAS and possibly other PvP matches we organize. Currently we just post them on our facebook https://www.facebook.com/armaisrael - None of what we play is like the crap you see on public servers, nor does it require playing it in a very specific way in order to work like you would see in most closed-community COOP/PvP missions - It's made with more a "have the mission fun regardless of how the player chooses to play it, and just penalize the player for not trying to win" kind of approach.
