[WarZ] Alpha/Beta date & Pre-Orders [Update on Strongholds] - Page 4

post #31 of 41
All the footage shown thus far has been very controlled. Can't trust a game that has no actual, real footage.

If you were considering it at a discounted price, why aren't you getting it at the discounted price of $20 rather than complaining about them offering higher packages for a little more? Offer stands until 10/17, don't complain when you decide you want the game after that and have to pay $30 for just the game alone wink.gif

I'm not gonna complain you know why? Because I know I didn't half blindly throw my money on a unfinished game. If the game gets rave reviews and is actually good I'm more then happy to purchase at full price.

Update- What are strongholds?
Quote:
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.

I'm going to wait until there are more videos up a few days after the Alpha begins. If it is good I'll buy a Pioneer copy for my wife and I. We are both watching this game closely.

It doesn't take a smart person to realize this game is going to be awful.

They also made this game that is dubbed as the worst game ever:

You mean this? biggrin.gif
How can anyone be hyped for this?

I also saw an interview with this Sergey Titov guy, and he's an absolute tool.

PLEASE for the love of all that is good in this world, wait. If you have ever played War INC battlezone you will have a good idea how this game is going to be. Weird animations that feel unfinished, sounds that are from 1999 video games, the whole wazoo of a F2P game gone retail. Don't impulse buy, for anything!
