Ive never been so mystified by a game before, I want to love it but I find myself disillusioned with it.
Few random questions. (I'm pretty excited about this game, btw)
-System specs, anyone know? Wondering if this might be the point I might want to look at upgrading.
-What is "censored" in orange on the one screenshot in the OP? Like, user info or something?
-So, you die and then you're locked out of that character for the next 24 hours? That supposed to encourage you do create multiple toons or? I'm not sure I like that system. I mean, it seems like if the game is competitive at all you'll die relatively often.
The censored bits is the cost, think they wanted to keep it secret till we knew what and how currency worked
The 24 hour period is still in development, I would hope that if you were killed by pkers the time would be shortened but its not been confirmed yet. Its suppose to be a survival game so dying needs a penalty, maybe 24 hours is a tad too long.
It's fairly competitive, but as they add more and more team work is encouraged and probably one of the more fun aspects.
The censored thing in those screenshots is the character name and total survival (or maybe play) time, I forget which.
That's cool, thanks for the info guys. I can live with an hour, even a couple hours but 24 hours seems extreme. I agree with the need to add penalties to dying and I'd rather see a cooldown on respawning rather than an experience loss/gear loss. But yeah, an hour/couple hours would be alright, I could always make a couple alts to mess around with. Is there a per-account character limit, any idea? I guess overall there wouldn't be a need for a lot since there's not exactly a class system or anything, so everything plays the same.
I posted here a few pages back calling out WarZ based on the moderator that "disclosed" a lot of information.
I can happily say I was wrong:
Looks like I have my zombie game
Glad he came clean though.
Edit: Sad to read the YouTube comments and see that no one believes him now (even though it's most likely the facts)
I don't claim to know a ton about the game, or that the devs are great guys, but I've seen so much misinformation, lying, and hatred of this game that doesn't necessarily seem warranted. It's definitely not the first time I've seen someone make wild claims about the game/devs being fake/terrible and be proven wrong (or admit they're wrong) : /
redit: No one "believes" him because they already have their preconceived notions of the game and don't want anything challenging it. They'd rather continue to believe that he wasn't lying (despite his admission he was) and continue their hatred of something. Some of the fans in both camps are pretty nasty and closed minded, it's kind of baffling.
Yeah, I took it on face-value to begin with, I'm not sure. I had read a lot of negative press and thought this would be legit. Turns out I'm a huge idiot I can admit when I'm wrong though, and will look forward to it
i would just like to point back to my previous posts saying that this game was going to lean more towards a pay to win, something i had thrown right back into my face. Not to mention all the other things i called them on, ie deleting of threads on the forum, that a 2 week alpha was laughable, it being copy pasted from the war inc, generally Sergey as a developer ( successfully alienated a huge portion of his fanbase, calling the people paying your wage faggots is a good way to loose business) etc etc. All of which was readily thrown back at me with rabid fanboyism.
please go back and have a look at the posts in the pages before to see everything i said about this game. not to mention the reem of other broken promises, no 400 square kilometer map, no zombie hordes, no vehicles, no skill trees, no friends list, no stem cells, no NPCs, no world interaction, no bandit system, no anti cheat, no bandit safe-zone, no stronghold servers etc etc. Dont pull that " its only in alpha" bullshit because lets be honest it was meant to be in beta over a month ago
i think people are starting to come to the realisation that this game is no more than a cash cow for a greedy little tit. I said people would start to regret investing in this piss poor excuse for a game and so instead of arguing with the idiots who posted on here and defended the game i thought I would simply wait before re-posting, seems like i didnt have to wait that long at all. There are more and more people with buyers remorse and only a month and a half after they released the "alpha" ( it was pre alpha at best). The stream of refunds is becoming laughable. Not to mention them apparently randomly banning people so they have to rebuy the game. Oh and did i mention that if you request a refund apparently your are banned for buying it again if if ever actually makes this into a full game, let alone out of alpha. I for one took the £20 and invested in a proper project like the dead linger. A game being built from the ground up by a a few enthusiastic genuinely talented team.
*sits smugly in a corner as the whole of the war z crumbles around the idiots who bought it*
sorry if i sound like an arrogant dick, but quite frankly given the amount of resistance i had when i first posted about the war z i think the smugness is somewhat warranted. I give it 6 months before this entire project is dead and buried and the servers go offline. Their own fanbase is starting to turn against them now. Its a slippery slope from hereon in guys, better abandon ship before they go bankrupt.

The game right now is bordering on the bad for me, Im not advocating this game is where I want it to be right now, I rarely bother to play it, but you're just adding nothing to this topic with your lack of humility and amazing ability to forsee the future without any evidence of your so called collapse.
Stream of refunds- no evidence
apparantly banning people - little to no evidence, if so, so what, their game their way.
no anti cheat- yes there is
no bandit safe zone - yes there is
no vehicles - there will be
no 400km map - they said they will increase map sizes incrememntally with patches
no npcs - never were going to be
no zombie hordes - no proof that there wont be, most ive faced is 15 at once
no vehicles - promise to come
Friends list - incoming
So all your no this no that all boils down to the fact the game is so far off release, all you have to be 'smug' about is that its way behind schedule, so what, release dates are not set it stone.
As to alienating community - definitely some, but then Blizzard, Anet et etc have all at times alienated people by desing choices and by PR/communication failure, I for one was disapointed in the whole top game in japan and the joke post about dead linger but I dont care about the developer so much as I care about the game. Sergey said spawn campers are faggots, damn right, calling people who ruin the game for people faggots was a great move, http://dayzmod.com/forum/index.php?/...-you-try-warz/ I dont disagree with a word he said in that post. Except that its given dayz fanboys a pedastal to sit on.
So what do you have right now except anecdotal evidence, you have nothing to be smug about, im sure you pulled this whole, look im right without any evidence before, yup http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...8#post18779838 theres smug triggy again.
