    DayZ was good, but wasteland is much better imo. DayZ can get boring pretty quick if you don't run into action, whereas wasteland is constant action and chaos. But jackfrags is definitely good to watch.

    Just makes me more anxious for Wasteland 2... and DayZ standalone to see if they can improve on an already good experience.

    Out of all the other maps which would people here recommend? I was thinking of trying Namalask(sp?), my friend said it was pretty fun.

    If you know the IP/Port of any servers you play on with those maps too I'd be more than thankful.

    I was in tank for ages yesterday, a proper one with the big turret and machine gun, it was really fun. We killed like 30 people and ended it in style by destroying an APC that someone was going to get by doing a suicide mission. So much fun xd

    If you have only played Cherna, I recommend Lingor Island. Its a much faster paced map, almost every building is accessible, vehicles are everyonewhere. Once you have had your fill I then suggest Taviana Island. Namalsk is good, but its really hard with managing heat and what not. Panthera is a bit better, smaller map usually more action.

    Wasteland is epic btw and you dont even have to download a mod. I shut my DayZ server down a couple weeks ago, havent played in a long while. Going to wait for SA.

    Yeah we're mostly just looking for hard survival and not like a death match experience lol. Namalsk sounds like it'll be the hardest for that so might really be worth it, but Lingor will be next on my list for sure.

    Scariest part of Namalsk? Bloodsuckers (yes, those invisible fucks from the STALKER series). It's so much 'fun' when you're looting the crashed C-130 and you suddenly hear four or five of the bastards roar. Good times...

    I've literally just made an account to respond to Dottz post further up the thread. Unfortunately I cannot repost his link so i'll make the video channel in bold. Jackfrags video was insanely good, first time i've sat down to watch a Dayz/Arma2 video through and through. I think it's one of the first scripted based series i've saw, which is excellent - it opens up whole new storylines and whacky action scenes. Definelty a channel to keep my eye on, subbed!

    So a few clan buddies got me to play some Namalsk last night and holy **it was that fun. The additions of Bloodsuckers and Electric Storms has added a whole new layer of crazy to that map. I highly suggest you check it out and play at least long enough to see those two new features.

    Whats the general goal of wasteland servers?

    I tried one out on arma3 alpha, the framerate was borderline unplayable... But I stuck at it. I just found myself wandering around finding nothing and getting teamkilled.

    Is there an objective, is it normal for players to teamkill you? I seriously have no idea what i'm doing. (first time playing the Arma series)

    Wasteland has heavy emphasis in squad combat. Basically you have 3 teams and then control points on the map. Every so often dynamic missions kick off and the idea is that all 3 teams are fighting for the rewards of these missions and controlling points on the map. Then you have the whole base building aspect. Best advice is to spawn with some team mates and follow them around to get familiarized with the game play. Yes, team killing happens but some servers will ban for it so its not the norm for every server.

    Ah, I see. Well thanks for the info!

    DayZ Good or Bad?

    I was just curious what everyone thought about DayZ, I havnt played it, but am seriously thinking about getting it. Let me know if i should or not

  14. #574
    I watch Frankieon1080p on youtube play it and I enjoy it.

    It's a pretty full on game, survival after all usually is. You might fair well with a team mate.
    I'm not sure what the objective of the game is though :S Find the best weapon ?

    Played with friends it's a blast. Failing that a busy well moderated server is a good idea too, since you can *usually* find a random guy to pal up with (the ingame voice comms help with that). You'll need a better-than-low-end computer for it. Arma isn't built particularly well and the mod only seems to add to that. One of my friends was getting slideshow framerates on some busy servers.

    It's pretty fun, but you'd be better just to wait for the Standalone.

  17. #577
    Good with friends but honestly I only enjoyed it for a little while. There's only so much fun to be had in staying alive, and that's pretty much all you do. You might be into that but it's a bit like playing a survival mode game. You just go on for as long as possible and that's it. Haven't played it in ages and feel no urge to. If you die you lose all your gear and start over too. Again, you might like that idea but I'd probably just not bother if I'd gotten some decent items over the course of however-many days and then just lost it all.

    Just wait for Standalone at this point. Though, Rocket has been a little inconsistent on release dates. It started out December of last year (even going as far as stating they'd be in trouble if they didn't have it out by the end of 2012) but has been steadily pushed back to an alpha around June, so who knows at this point. I think he just really wants a polished product as to avoid a similar catastrophe like what happened to the War Z so I can't really blame him too much, but damned if my interest hasn't started to wane.

    Wasn't it rated as one of the worst games ever made? And wasn't there mass refunds on steam because it was so bad?
