We should get a MMO-Champ server going for the beta, with the Legend pack I get 6 months server time so if anyone is interested let me know
Kewk are you able to share any information on how the servers are going to work and what control the renter has over it? Such as if it can be Public/Private some Admin controls to kick/ban white/black listing, reserved slots etc.
I'm interested in renting my own server and just curious over how exactly it will work. Also what does it mean by "Be part of the game forever, become a Legend"? Can we expect something or am I just over thinking it?

heck, this morning i saw that info's mail and i was like "lolz! tell me that its a beta invite!!!" until i opened it and i saw that it was the pre-order announce and all the illusion had gone
Oh, and seeing the video where Kewk appears killing 2 guys... i hope they update the character animations, because when you see the guy that Kewk saved looking at the loot/weapons... its too weird, its the "idle animation" (which i hate a lot, its like if the character cant stay without moving a second) but with the char looking at the ground. I really really hope that its a placeholder and they will change it, because that animation is... well, it sux. A lot. Really.

And no no intention on preordering or buying the game anymore. Will probaly just subscribe to a youtube channel and see what people play like.
Joey AdamsDo not worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older it will avoid you.
What is the server hosting they were talking about in the beta email that was sent out?
Is that where you get your own instanced version of the world and can invite/allow people to play in the same instance with you (or something)?
(sorry, not much of a gamer outside of the few MMOs I already play).
playing a game because of the graphics is like watching porn for the story...
Tbh though if there are people running larger 'pve' servers i think id just join that and save me the hassle :P
I bought the legend pack for WarZ. I also bought packages for MechWarrior Online, FireFall, and End of Nations. I do not have a issue with paying before hand to get beta access and the game. If you look at the packages, you get some good stuff. The legend pack gives you six months of server along with $30 in game currency. Sounded like a good deal to me, and was reason why I bought it.
As soon as it is possible to host a server, i will probably host a public one for MMO champion, mostly for creating videos and talk about the game, so if you want to help improve it il post the IP and information in the main thread as soon as it is possible.
-Thank you guys for helping me maintain this thread.
Kewk, you are by far the worst actor when it comes to trying to roleplay in the video....! step it up naab! i mean you play WoW for god sake, king of roleplaying!
New information released by sergey about strongholds read below, and as usual its on the front page!
What is STRONGHOLD ?
To put it simply it's just a fancy name for a custom tailored server rentals. Our goal is to separate "gameworld" server rentals - ie when you rent server with 50-200 slots and choose one of the maps ( okay for now we have only one map available - COLORADO ), and "small worlds" - something more intimate for you, your friends, clan, etc to make this mini world your own home base.
How I can rent Stronghold ?
When you click PLAY GAME, you'll see two buttons - MY SERVERS and MY STRONGHOLDS. On My Strongholds screen you'll see all available stronghold maps. There you'll be able to choose map, duration ( 1,3,6,12 months ) and number of slots ( 15,30,45 ). Survivor and Legend packages comes with 1 and 6 months of hosting for 15 slots. Discount will be applied automatically first time you rent stronghold server.
What are those maps ?
They're much smaller maps - typically around 3-4 square kilometers in size with 1-2 "settlements" per map. Those "settlements" are planned to act as home base - for either single player or group of players. There're zombies spawned on outskirts of the map - so they're generally not a threat on those maps. But ! you can lure them into settlement.
Is there any loot on Stronghold maps ?
There're few loot spawn locations, but loot is slightly different from what you'll get on main gameworld maps - very basic food items plus some unique "building" materials "local" to this stronghold map. We want to encourage players that runs different stronghold maps to barter with other players, eschanging building "blocks" that can be used to modify your map.
What can I do on the Stronghold map
Short answer - whaterver you want. Lure other players into traps and kill then. Create a farm, farm food and sell it to other players. Create "safe heaven" for other players to just hang out. It's all basically restricted by your imagination.
Can I create my own business using Stronghold map ?
Wow ! Didn't thought about it, but technically yes nothing prevent you from doing that.
Yey ... I can use paysafe card =))
They've just updated pay options
"We're happy to announce that we accept almost any payment method on the planet
- lots of local currency payment options, cash payments, gift cards, prepaid game cards, etc,
etc - check new payment options at http://www.thewarz.com/buy"
