A few friends and I normally get in a mumble and talk even though we are in different servers. Funny to listen to them freak out screaming because a horde of zombies are after them.

But you don't get the Flashlight Deathmatch 2012 in DayZ biggrin.gif

Yes you can download it, it's already in alpha stage, so long and you purchased a copy that allowed you to have alpha access you can download the client here

Just note, it's in alpha phase, they're patching it several times a day to fix the bugs in it, which are a lot, there's times where I could only play 5 min before it would crash. Oh and don't ever press the TAB key in game, causes instant crash...lol

You have to understand testing between a few developers and hundred closed testers is a totally different scenario from a massive 20,000+ more publicized test. Thousands of different hardware and software configurations are thrown into the mix. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Take into account each of those have an x86 and x64 bit version, and hundreds of hardware configurations possible on each. The best thing you can do is submit a report every time you crash. They'll see how frequently a crash is occuring that is particular to a certain OS version or hole in code. Developers confirmed my stance on this:
Quote:
First of all crashes - most of them are associated with 32bit Os versions. We're going to release patch tonight that will hopefully eliminate crashes on 64bit Os, and will reduce it chances on 32bit OS.

I definitely experienced less crashes last night in comparison to the first night.

The game wasn't "rushed out." It's not even "out" yet. It's in its Alpha testing stage. If it's "out" a week after the Alpha, that would be "rushing it out." They're having 2 weeks of patching to reach Beta (more than that because they didn't JUST reach Alpha when we got access to Alpha), and then another few weeks of patching to reach a final, releasable product.

If anyone played the very first release of DayZ, they should acknowledge that WarZ is in a much better state than DayZ was. Remember items disappearing from your inventory? Zombies being extremely retarded? In WarZ they seem about as good as DayZ's CURRENT zombies.

I would prefer to have War Z anyways since Day Z is just a mod of Arma 2 and would require me to figure out how to even mod the game to allow me to play. I find it much simpler to just get a game and be able to play what I want right off the bat. The graphcis also look a lot better from the videos I watched of Day Z. It also looks like it has a lot more support than just a reskin of someone elses game.

They can't test the stress on the servers if they dont let people on them. Remember, the game has not been 'released'. It is in Alpha stage and we are the ones being used to test server stability and other issues within the game. Don't expect things to be completed or they wouldn't have an alpha or a beta. I'm sure at some point that may stop allowing people to buy the game until they can get enough servers online. They almost doubled the servers last night and I haven't crashed in awhile so these issues are being fixed rather quickly. Still waiting until invisible zombies and stuck zombies are fixed so I can feel safe from dying. Hard to kill something you can't see and it is really scary to hear a zombie chasing you to turn arond and look and find nothing. Throws me off my game.

Does anyone know if Shotgun ammunition can be purchased from the marketplace? I don't remember the exact name of the shotgun and I had already died before I could look at the marketplace so if anyone knows that would be great. Going to go hunting for another one.

..Are you kidding me?

Not to be rude, but this is kind of ignorant. First of all, you say that "Day Z is just a mod of Arma 2" and that it's "just a reskin of someone else's game".

Lol! What do you expect from a mod? Of course it is a reskin! Of course the gameplay is similar! That's inherently what a mod is! Some mods go to greater lengths to be almost indistinguishable from the original game, but I would say that Day Z is no more or less of a mod than Left 4 Dead is.

But you are saying this like War Z is somehow different, like War Z is not a mod and is completely original -- it's not! War Z is a straight-up reskin of War Inc., and it runs on the same exact engine. At least the Day Z standalone is getting an Arma engine tweaked specifically for the mod.

Not to mention the fact that War Z ripped several concepts directly from Day Z, and they even ctrl+v'd the League of Legends terms of service! It's pretty blatantly obvious what the War Z is trying to accomplish, and that is to push its "product" out before Day Z standalone in the hopes to cash in on some of the market before standalone comes to the scene and makes War Inc. look like a big disgrace (as if Day Z in its current state doesn't already do that).

You say that the graphics of War Z "look a lot better".. No they don't. In fact, Day Z can be one of the prettiest games I've ever played at times. Especially in the wilderness. Some of the scenery in Day Z/ARMA 2 is breathtaking. But the cities do leave some to be desired -- the models are simple and so are the textures. But in my opinion, it still looks quite good.

In fact, I'll post up some screenshots of Day Z later and we can see which game looks better.

And as to your other point about having to "figure out how to even mod the game" to allow you to play, that's what DayZ Commander is for. DayZ Commander makes installing literally as simple as one click, and it makes finding and joining servers (with your exact specifications) a breeze.

As far as "support" goes, how the hello can you even make the claim that War Z "looks like it has a lot more support" when the game came out a day ago? If anything, I would argue the exact opposite, based on the shady nature of the developer and the ridiculously terrible first-day experiences I've been hearing about. Time will tell, but prepare to not be impressed with the level of support that War Z receives.

I really don't think your post has any validity whatsoever.
