    New update went out today on what they plan to do:

    1. Wipe
    As we're moving toward Foundation Release ( which most likely will be at same time we'll launch game on Steam ) we'll do a wipe - most likely this weekend. You'll get back all GC you bought as part of the packages, you'll also get some extra free GC as our thank you for being early players. Most likely you'll have all in game characters unlocked for - once again - our present to you guys! We also thinking about giving our some "zombie survival kits" - set of items necessary to start over surviving in a zombie world.

    2. New way of buying game. New packages
    As we've said before - we want our early adopters to feel special - so we decided that we'll stop selling Survivor, Pioneer packages ( Legend's sales are over for good now, with about 500 or so keys are still available at retail Gamestop locations around USA ). Instead we'll offer number of "unnamed" packages that doesn't offer any recognition ingame, or doesn't unlock any characters from the start, etc. Only difference between packages will be the amount of GC you get.

    3. New Antihack
    New antihack is coming. I think it'll happen around mid-end of December - new system is relying on analyzing players patterns and reacting upon them. It's pretty complex system running on separate server, and we hope it will let us to replace existing system - that still most of the time ( is wallhack or ESP is used ) rely on humans to ban cheaters - which can take day or two. Once again - we'll become slightly more secure in our never ending fight with hackers.

    4. Steam release
    Okay this one is simple - game will become available on Steam. We also exploring ways for existing users to link game to their Steam accounts - nothing to report there yet, but we're working on this.


    5. GC Sale
    Yes you'll be able to buy GC after wipe!


    6. New features roadmap.
    Okay this one will be more like "wishlist" - it's based on Hammerpoint's internal development plan, but as always something may come up - new hacks, other things that will slow us down. So please take this more like a guidelines, not hard promises:

    Foundation Release ( December 2012 )
    - Clans
    - Friends
    - Leaderboards
    - Server rentals
    - New set of building blocks ( aka barricades and USABLE objects like hydroponics systems )
    - Call for help functionality
    - Accessing your inventory from Safe Settlement without loging out of the game
    - Accessing Store from Safe Settlement without loging out of the game
    - .22 cal guns - rifles, pistols
    - More cool melee weapons
    - Better use of ballistic helmets, armor vests.
    - Flare guns ( okay we had it for a while, but just didn't released it to you guys yet )
    - Better weight system
    - Option to turn on crosshairs in TPS


    Still December 2012, but maybe moved to January '13
    - "Safe" or "Locker" items - allows you to safely store items anywhere on the map ( think of DayZ's tents, but working properly ). Two types - one with 4-5 digits PIN lock, other with no lock at all
    - Map adjustments - even more walkable places - mountains, hills, some tweaks on textures, more enterable buildings, more stuff, new types of trees, etc. Lighting tweaks.
    - New characters
    - New survival items ( energy tonics to replenish Stamina, meds, etc )
    - Tear Gas ( yes this is why you'll want gas masks )
    - More civilian weapons

    January-February 2013
    - 5-6 stronghold maps to be added to the game
    - Driveable Vehicles
    - Melee fist fights
    - Player defined missions !


    March 2013
    - Better Medic system
    - Potentially ( okay POTENTIALLY is a keyword ) - weapons crafting

    June - August 2013
    - New Map ! One that will be probably 4 times bigger than current Colorado map
    - 5-6 more stronghold maps
    Kinda sad how long we'll be waiting for new maps and such, but nice to see a general game plan!

    UPDATE:
    Okay guys, you've asked us to change how clans are being created - and we've listened.

    1) Clans creation will be free. We probably will put restriction on time you need to play before you'll be able to create Clan, but basic clan creation will be free.

    2) Default Clan size will be 10-20 members - enough for most folks to play with their friends.

    3) Additional clan slots will be sold in increments of 20 members. Price is TBD. I personally feel it should be like $5-7

    Thanks again for the patch notes Tree

    There is a large gap in maps but if they do manage to release 5-6 stronghold maps by February then you'll be very occupied with that until we get more.

    Crafting weapons = awesome

    You purchase the game once think of it as GW2, purchase the game once and any fee's after that are optional, they provide public servers and updates which is funded from people renting a server for themselves or buying food in the micro-transaction store. Some people try to make out to be as pay to win when it really isn't since it gives you no gameplay edge over someone else.

    That's called buy to play, free to play does not mean the lack of a subscription but the lack of a cost to play the game. I realise you're responding to someone else's claim that it's F2P, just seen a lot of people call it that and yours is the most recent post .

    Her hall is called Eljudnir,
    her dish is Hunger,
    her knife is Famine,
    her slave is Lazy,
    and Slothful is her woman servant.

    I'll edit my post to make it more clear, by that I was emphasizing that there are no fee's afterwards.

    Hackers are the main concern they could turn the 2 games into something shitty and not worth playing.
    You are lying! I never hit you! YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, LISA!

    Time will tell, competition is health, etc, etc.

    Sadly yes, but a lot of games have their fair share of hackers and we can just hope they keep working on getting rid of them

    You do, but as of the 30th you wont need anything to start the clan.

    Yep, and to those that bought a clan they receive a refund.

    They are both similar but the competition between the two will be good for both games.

    So many people are asking for refunds that they're now refusing to give out refunds. Good thing I already got mine.

    Pretty sure people should read the TOS then, they've basically updated it to stop people from requesting refunds because many hackers who have been banned are just getting their money refunded.

    Which is retarded when any game company gives back refunds just because you dont like the product. Its not like you can get a refund when you go see a shitty movie right?

    If the movie was shitty because it was still in post production then I'd expect a refund.

    BUT! If you pay to see a movie that's a work in progress and don't like it? Your own damn fault for not waiting IMO.

    Maybe, but then again the buy page for the game doesn't really mention it's still in "beta": https://account.thewarz.com/buy/buy.html

    If you go to the FAQ it says the game is going to be released "this Fall".

    They need to disclose this sort of thing at the very least to avoid confusion.

    Should have called it a kickstarter if they don't want to hand out refunds for preorders.

    I will agree with that, it's pretty lazy not to stay on top of your webpage with relevant information.
