We are happily announcing that Bohemia Interactive has approved our server monetization.


Based on feedback from server operators we acknowledge that the costs connected to hosting a server can be prohibitive and thus rules out a lot of gamers/squads from being able to afford one, so we have subsequently agreed to allow limited monetization of Arma 3 Servers.
From February 1st 2015, anyone is allowed to monetize their Arma 3 server as long as they're registered, approved and listed on http://www.bistudio.com/monetization/approved:

  • Charging players to access your server, if the fees and associated perks do not affect gameplay in any way, is allowed. Cosmetic perks are allowed. Limiting access to only paying players is allowed.
  • Product placement, in-game advertising and sponsorship is allowed.
  • Selling of in-game items, that don’t affect gameplay, is allowed.
  • Accepting donations is allowed, but to avoid any doubts: not providing donations must not prevent anyone from accessing the content.

If we feel anyone on the list at http://www.bistudio.com/monetization/approved is exploiting any loopholes or is not acting in the best interests of the Arma 3 community, we will remove them. That will mean they will have to cease this kind of monetization immediately or face legal action.
We consider this to be a test run and therefore the permission is given for a limited time. It will expire on January 31st 2016. At that point, we will evaluate its effects on the Arma 3 community.

We will be releasing donations for our server as soon as we are approved by Bohemia Interactive.


This means:

  • Our 100 slot will be increasing to 120 with the final 20 slots available for donators & staff team
  • We will put our money to covering the server & website costs

More about it:

Donators will have their own spawn area and shops that have donator vehicle skins and a nametag above their head showing what level donation.

All spawn areas are accessible by all players even non-donators.


Different donation levels will differ in vehicle skins and access. (This does not change gameplay)

  • £0 - £10 - Donators will receive "[BRONZE]" above their nametag in-game
  • £11 - £29 - Donators will receive "[SILVER]" above their nametag in-game
  • £30+ - Donators will receive "[GOLD]" above their nametag in-game


What you will get from this:

  • TeamSpeak Tags
  • In-Game Tags
  • TeamSpeak Private Channel & Channel Admin (for yourself)
  • Vehicle Skins (depending on your donation level)
