    As much as I regret my purchase, those patch notes actually look promising.
    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.

    Meh, at least this time they are honest about the game features this time.

    I haven't played the game since the beginning of January. Anything worth mentioning happen since then?

    It's probably been said several times in 51 pages but...
    War Z is a rushed game on an inefficient engine with an unskilled development team.
    The dev team has a very poor and shady history.
    Most of the things you see in their advertisements are not possible in game.
    It was pulled even from Steam due to false advertisement.
    It has a Meta-Critic rating of ~23/100.

    Buyer Beware.

    Why this game isn't banned for sale and the devs not being put on some sort of charges are beyond me.
    At least their showing some effort in improving the game, but it's a lost cause now. Don't give your money to these dope's.

    Hell, those damn telemarketer scammers get away with pretty much anything, so why not these guy's? I mean it's not like they falsely advertised their game in any way, right?

    screenshots on the steam page are still false advertising and it doesn't mention anywhere that the game is still a work in progress.

    Hopefully no one falls for the same crap again and buys this garbage. I think it's been proven time and time again that this game was a sham

    Also...

    I played their previous game, War Inc: BattleZone a lot. In early development it was really good and had a HUGE amount of potential, it gained a lot of popularity. Then they tried to make it more popular by attempting to turn it into a third person version of Modern Warfare. Numbers peak then decline sharply... BAM!

    They halt development (without warning) on an unfinished game abandoning their paying, loyal players. No updates, balances, or bug fixes. No official support on their forums. They do leave the game up with their overpriced cash shop in place. I'm talking $50 for a weapon modification (like a silencer) that can only be used on a single weapon.

    The have been working on WarZ since then.

    I will never buy WarZ or any future products they have had a hand in. They don't know what they're doing and they don't care to screw people over.

    Anyone with a keen eye for business would be buying up every WarZ product they can get their hands on as an investment to sell them to hipsters in ~20 years, disasters like this are the shitty old granny chairs of the future.

    I'm curious if there's legal action that's going to be taken against them. I'm not sure where they're even based, but I'd assume that things like the Better Business Bureau would have an interest in continued shit service.

    BBB can't really do anything IIRC. It's just a rating system.

    For the most part all the companies and persons involved have limited liability so even if you did take legal action you wouldn't get much back if you won.

    *edit* Essentially the infrastructure is deliberately setup in a way that means it's just not worth the effort to try and sue them in any way, unless you're a lot bigger and just want to close them down.

    Played it, would not recommend it. Waste of time!

    Think its well known now that war z is a fundamental failure of epic proportions, a failure that will hopefully see the death of these developers. A turgid game produced by a vindictive, manipulative little studio, a cash grab of the most obvious kind. I was caught hook line and sinker with this, even defended it for a while before release.

    I'm suprised the hype of War z and Day Z lasted as long as it did to be honest.

    Both were subpar zombie survival games which most likely got a load of hype due to the walking dead tv series.

    Dont beat yourself up too much, game hype is a powerful tool. Its taken me years to see through the bullshit and I still get caught up in it from time to time.

    There was never a lot of "hype" with DayZ persay because there was never anything for anyone to hype. More of a battle between which is going to be better and DayZ is still under development and looking quite good to be honest. I just got sick of waiting so my interests will return when it finally releases. But even the DayZ mod has been drastically changed and has tons of features now.
