    neither Do the guys over at WarZ- it was supposed to go to Beta on the 31th and its now the 12th and its still in alpha- Its like the blind leading the blind over there.

    And wow, jeez We get it you love this game more than your family and it could never do any wrong in your eyes - You have really set your standards low- dude

    I tried it out this weekend with the guest pass provided by Waaldo (thanks again!) Some things I noted:

    Not having a "go to crouch" holding your crouch button down and move is not fun. (Unless I missed it somewhere). Also having to hold down a sprint button, not a fan of that as well.
    The graphics are ok, different style no real issues with that.
    The crouch and run animations aren't very good.
    The zoom to look seems to fast to me. I never found a weapon so can't comment on the iron sights for those.

    My first spawn I got to one of the cities and it was nothing but guys camped out on top of buildings killing any and everybody. I was able to avoid the bandits but ended up dying later to a zombie. Once you run out of sprint your kinda screwed.

    Another time I ran into a bunch of fresh spawns, everyone seemed to let you be. One guy was fighting a zombie, I went in and helped him only to die to his flashlight as soon as I turned my back. Pretty much the whole weekend was being killed by everyone with or without weapons.

    I will keep an eye on their progress, but won't be buying it anytime soon.

    Hehe, I bought this game a couple of days ago, to be specific; Friday.

    And I must say, this game is really awesome if you have friends to play with.

    We have been pretty unlucky when it comes to farming for items, but yesterday we did hit the motherload, we found some random guy running to a safezone, we then proceeded to gun him down and see what guns/whatever he had.

    And he had everything, 50+ antibiotics, 150+ painkillers, 200+ bandages, snipers/assault rifles/pistols all with a couple of mags, Alice Backpack.

    EVERYTHING!

    Cant wait to see this game later in development :>

    i think this is a issue that needs to be adressed. If safezone camping that seems to be easier to get stuff then walking yourself

    Well, it is not like this everyday, and we were quite a while away from a safezone, he was just walking that direction, so that is why I assumed he was going there.

    * More enter-able building
    * Better ambiance sound
    * Bandit system

    3 key points I'm missing at the moment. Afaik 1 & 3 are being worked on, but what about 2?
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    I am so glad I can make my own server to avoid people like you. You are what I hate in a game. In fairness the other guy was a bit stupid to run around with that much stuff but still.

    Holy crap that game lets you carry a butt load of gear....

    Thanks for the key Waaldo, I got to play for a little bit and get a feel for the game.

    Some observations:
    I am too nice for this game. My first instinct is always to never shoot strangers until they shoot first, which of course means I'm dead a lot.
    The game looks best through a flashlight at night but only noobs use them because they are bullet magnets.
    Spawning with nothing means there is a sharp difficulty curve for those who recently died. Your only defense against zombies is running away which is surprisingly ineffective sometimes.
    Once you do manage to scrounge a melee weapon, zombies become no threat if you confront them one at a time.
    I'll spawn in the wilderness and have to walk 30-45 minutes to reach a town only to die without ever seeing my killer. Jokes on them though, they wasted a bullet. All I wasted was a lot of time...

    Suggestions:
    Give players a means to confront zombies 1 on 1 after they have spawned or make melee weapons much more common.
    Increase zombie difficulty (greater numbers and smarter ai) so players are encouraged to work cooperatively.
    Create party option with a private party chat.
    When players are killed by a survivor let them know who killed them.
    Faster movement or vehicles to speed up travel.
    Remove the death timer, it is a pointless annoyance.
    If killed by a zombie give the player the option of playing as one, perhaps with special abilities like a call that attracts other zombies or something similar to the abilities that they have in Left4Dead.

    Since this is a sandbox game, it seems to me you should be able to throw out the typical ai behaviors of enemies to create some unique gameplay with the zombies. Get rid of leashes, if I run away from a zombie and lose him let him wander in that new location. Let zombies communicate, congregate and wander around together. Wandering zombie hordes that the player needs to take special care to avoid would be an interesting hazard.

    IM the reason? For catching a random guy running to a safezone? Should I just let him go just because he was running in that general direction?

    If so, whats the point to killing people.

    And it was not like we were at the border to the safezone, there was atleast a 5 minute walk to it, so again..

    Why am I whats wrong with the community?

    Your not and there is nothing wrong with what you did to begin with. People need to remember they are supposed to be playing a Zombie Apocalypse simulator, if they cant hack that then its back to L4D with them. There shouldn't even be safe zones because 1) it promotes camping 2) the only safe zone in a RL Zombie Apoc would be one you build yourself which apparently WarZ offers building ability or that will come soon so why is there a safe zone to begin with?

    I think in a rl zombie apocolypse there would be safe zones, and not ones you built yourself. You can build 'safezones' but they dont act as a safe place from pvp like in the actual safezones. the area around safezones should also be free from attack to stop plonkers like the guy above camping outside.

    Why kill him int he first place, that is you're choice to camp outside safe zones and kill people the game isnt designed around pking, its about survival. Im sure in a rl zombie apocolypse your first thought would be to shoot some guy in the back, mine would be to say hello :P

    1º. He said he wasnt near the Safe Zone, but about 5 minutes or so running in the direction the guy was running, thats not "camping the safe zone"
    2º. While i agree that in a "supposed Zombie apocalipse" there would be some "good survivors", i assureyou that the number of thieves/assasins/etc,.would be bigger. Keep in mind that the majority of "resources" like ammo, food, water, medicines, etc,. would be "like gold", and very hard to find in good state, so yes, you would say hello, and maybe your chance to still be alive after that could be about the 25% or less.


    Btw, from what a friend told me the game goes into Beta state in Nov. 30, and there will be some interesting changes, making the game more a "survival zombie" and not just a PK game with a few zombies... i hope he is right, because it sounds cool! :3

    The PvP is supposed to be a part of the whole survival theme. The problem is there is 0 reason to team up or act good against others at the moment, hopefully they'll be able to implement some system that makes it a viable play style (while not undermining the PvP)

    Right now its not an mmo, its purely a survival game so something has to change to deserve the tag mmo. I guess I have more faith in humanity :P My little world will be pvp free

    LOL what? Dray were you drunk when you wrote this? In a RL apocalypse the only safe zones would be the ones people built. And the only way that safe zone is going to stay safe is if people keep it that way. So that brings me back to my point, you are given the ability to create a base. You are given the ability to team up with players to keep it safe. Why does there have to be a almighty "no pvp safe zone" when in all actuality there would be no such thing in an actual zombie apocalypse? Not to mention the type of crap that comes along with it like the guy who shot the dude and the 3 or so posters here telling him hes a douche for playing the game the way he wants. Which by the way, is supposed to be what these games are all about is it not? Otherwise, as Ive said, your now playing L4D.

    ???? MMO = Massive Multiplayer Online. WarZ fits this description does it not? Especially when they open up the servers to have 200+ ppl on them? You might be thinking of a MMORPG which in that case you are 100% correct.

    If PvP isnt your bag, I think your playing the wrong game man. I think this season of Walking Dead is doing an excellent job trying to portray what ultimately is the inevitable in a Zombie Apoc. Fight the dead, fear the living!

    Sounds like you just need to get a crew together and start your own "anti banditry" clan. Others will follow suite, others will try and kill you. But its a win/win for the experience in my opinion. There should not be an incentive to play one way or the other, it should all be up to the individual player.

    Well, when you see a guy running around with some fancy looking gear and a assault rifle, I did not want to take the chance, I had some stuff myself I didn't wanna lose, so me and the two friends just took the shot. :>

    Difference of opinion I guess nothing to do with alcohol, arguing over what would happen in a rl zombie apocolypse is a little pointless, I shouldnt have brought it up :P

    Right now I said, it needs more to make it feel like an mmo, 20 players on a massive map is not an mmo imo but like you said that will hopefully change. I still feel a lack of PvE Quests is frustrating, but the introduction of large players per server and clans etc will help.

    If PvP isnt your bag, I think your playing the wrong game man. I think this season of Walking Dead is doing an excellent job trying to portray what ultimately is the inevitable in a Zombie Apoc. Fight the dead, fear the living![COLOR="red"]
    No, I dont like PvP that much, not wPvP but like I said I will have my own PvE server so its not the wrong game at all. As to what would happen in a real apocolypse, well thats just subjective and I have no interest in arguing about that, we all have our own images of a zombie apoclypse, mine is clearly filled with unicorns and rainbows compared to yours :P

    Sounds like you just need to get a crew together and start your own "anti banditry" clan. Others will follow suite, others will try and kill you. But its a win/win for the experience in my opinion. There should not be an incentive to play one way or the other, it should all be up to the individual player.
    Sounds like a good thing if there were rewards likebandit quests I guess, think I read it might exist, might be like when I played ultima online and we used to hunt reds in feluccia.

    Aye apologies, I just got spawn camped and pked so much that its made me grumpy about it, the game is about survival, I just feel the kill on sight mentality aggravating, PvP is obviously a necessary part of the experience for a lot of people.

    I agree with you, but right now there's plenty of incentive to kill every player you see & no reason to team up.
