Anyone lucky enough to get the extra keys from purchase to pass around? I got two people that would love them.

Games amazing. I'm having so much fun. I just got destroyed by 10+ zombies in a ally because I was in search of water.

I don't have any extra keys as I already gave them out, but do know that the passes cannot be used until the 30th or 31st (so said one of my friends that I gave the key to).

Yep, sounds about like DayZ

So it's not just me I'm hoping..

Sarge, are you positive that your FPS doesn't significantly drop around cities such as Cherno? You have to be looking at the city for it to happen. Mine tanks pretty hard when a city is in view, but it stays above 40 at the absolute minimum. It gets up to 90-100 in the wilderness.

So far, you're about the only one in this entire thread who actually seems to be having any amount of fun..

Double post - sorry! (it was an accident)

Anyways, I'm not going to point and say "I told you so", but I will say that I'm not surprised with most people's reaction thus far. It was obvious from the beginning that War Z was nothing but a cash grab and an attempt to capitalize on DayZ's success.

Perhaps the devs can actually make the game fun to play at some point, but I'm not looking for just another zombie FPS. I guess that's one of the reasons I like DayZ so much, because it's different.

Hey thanks dude. That worked! Now I get CTD after about 10 minutes of gameplay. biggrin.gif
Quick play doesn't even work for me.

Still getting "Restart and Update Client" message.

I get the "game is not found" error, but just try reconnect a few times and it works. I've had the Restart and update client. I just restarted and tried it a few times and it worked.

Wow I can't believe they copied most of their terms and agreements from League of Legends. There is even a line with the League of Legends URL in it.
Here is the proof:

I hope they can save the game somehow. They better change the document before Riot sues them.

Just search for a server as that is better anyways. They added a bunch of servers last night which lead to almost every game being able to be joined. I usually aim for the servers that show less than 30 players.

I finally got some good play time in and I am really liking the way this game works. I never played Day Z so maybe that is a good thing. Having to find food and water is awesome because you actually have to interact with the cities instead of just sitting in the woods. I wasn't having much trouble taking on two zombies at a time with a melee weapon but once you get to the larger previously army occupied cities you definitely need a firearm.

I ended up finding a shot gun in the back of a station wagon and then a guy I was running around with came across an assault rifle on a lawn care truck right in front of the station wagon. We found a tunnel and we were going to check for supplies since it had a few military vehicles in it but he got the case of invisible zombies. I saw them chasing him just fine but he got taken down by over 10 zombies while I watched from afar. It was too late to warn him as they were stuck hitting him as he tried to run.

Then doing the smart thing I tried to go around and get to his body to get the assault rifle. I was on top of some sand bags since they can't get you there and was trying to get close enough to loot. Apparently you need to be on the same level or it has to be above you. It hit the jump button on accident and my guy glitched and dove forward off the bags and I got killed too. I was out of ammo and it appears that no shotgun ammo is available at the marketplace so maybe it wasn't that big of a deal. I have only come across ammo once and it was for a winchester rifle so the odds of finding the correct ammo is probably really low. Would just have a cool gun straped to my back.

I am really enjoying the game and people do need to realize that it is only two days old and things are going to be broken. I had a GREAT time playing. I was on ultra settings getting 20 fps, I don't know if I need a better GPU or if their is a bug within the game that is hindering my current GPUs performance. GPU is as shown in my signature. Wil have an Alienware m17x R4 with a 7970M this weekend so hopefully that will allow me to play at ultra with over 30 fps.
