Assuming you're not a War Z troll, let me educate you. Day Z came first as a mod to ARMA 2 developed solely by one man. The mod blew up and gained over a million players, and now there is a team working on a standalone version of Day Z which will release before the end of this year as a digital download. It will not be sold in stores but you'll probably be able to purchase it through Steam or something similar.
Also, the standalone version of Day Z will be running on a modified ARMA 2 and 3 engine which will be optimized specifically for Day Z.
ARMA, and thus Day Z, is probably unlike anything you have played -- it can be played either in first or third person (if the server allows it), and all of the animations feel very good and distinct. It takes a couple seconds to go prone and get back up again; you can't just move around with extreme agility like you do in most modern games. The guns feel good if not a little stiff while aiming, and the sound effects are superb. The atmospheric effects are very good from the sounds of the wildlife to the rolling clouds and the occasional light rain. There are many little environmental effects which I often take for granted.
Personally, I really like the deliberate, detail-oriented, and somewhat slower-paced nature of Day Z. That's why over a million people haves played it! It's a lot of fun.
Crushing bugs and getting rid of hackers is the standline's primary goal right now. In the future, Rocket has some exciting ideas for gameplay, such as actually being able to modify the terrain in order to create caves. But, simply fixing the games current problems will be enough to make me quite happy for now.
I think it's much more likely that the War Z debs would abandon their game long before the Day Z debs ever wood. Unless Day Z standalone does something abhorrently wrong, it looks like Day Z is here to stay. I certainly cannot say the same thing for the cash grab that is War Z.

To each his own like I've said. I'm enjoying War Z at the moment. I have a few friends that play and love Day Z. So stop trolling this thread talking about Day Z > War Z because this and that. Last I seen this Thread was called War Z Thread not Day Z

His post is hardly trolling dude. Its actually very well written and informative. Stop getting your panties in a bunch when someone doesn't think War Z is amazing. People have just as much right to dislike the game as you have to like the game.

Half these people haven't played the game either. If I wanted to read about Day Z. Then guess what. I'd take my ass to the Thread about Day Z. Plain and simple.

No, he's right. Well, sort of.

I wouldn't say that I'm trolling, but more that I'm giving my input where it's not wanted. That said, this thread is for "War Z discussion", and that doesn't exclude negative comments, certainly not ones that are entirely valid.

The main reason I've been responding so much in this thread is because my dad had surgery this morning and I had nothing better to do in the hospital room, but in addition to that, I don't like seeing so much flat-out misinformation.

Trust me, I'm not trolling. I'll try to not to be deliberately negative, but I can't promise that I won't pipe up when I see ignorant and somewhat inane comments.

Sometimes it doesn't take much for some people to enjoy something. I'm not saying this is a good or bad thing. After playing this game last night, I feel quite sad for some that actually gave thier money away for this trash. I'll wait an see how things progress in this game, but right now it is not promising at all. I'm not really a big fan of DayZ either, but it (even during its early stages) is leaps and bound above this so called game called WarZ. Garbage.

Game crashes have toned down a bit now and devs are releasing updates everyday. That's a good sign.

I'm annoyed with the idiots still trolling that this game is a scam, copy paste job, etc. to the point that I don't even bother conversing with them. If it was a copy/paste job, it would be a lot further developed as War Inc. is more complete than this.

I loved DayZ. I'm liking WarZ more so far. That might change when the DayZ standalone comes out, or might not.

Sigh.

They're not idiots. Do you realize the similarities between the two? Do you realize that War Z (literally) copied and pasted the League of Legends Terms of Service? Although there may not inherently be anything wrong with this, it's just incredibly sloppy to leave "League of Legends" in the TOS instead of changing it to "War Z".

And furthermore, it's not trolling. You seem to be fooling yourself that War Z is something that it's not and that it's not guilty of trying to cash in on Day Z.

Now, does that mean that it will be bad in the long run? Not necessarily. Likely, but not necessarily.

The problem isn't so much with what War Z is, but it's more along the lines of how the devs have sold it (figuratively speaking) and hyped it up into something it's not.

Come on guys, can we stop arguing over what game is better? If you like DayZ better good for you, if you like WarZ better good for you. But stop fighting about it god damn it...

Anyways, Im kinda sad we cant record yet, had the most amazing night tongue.gif
Me and a friend were in the City, dont know what it is called, but the big one. And we are looting pretty much everything, when we hear something we think is a high caliber gun near us. We go looking for it. At the time my friend has a shotgun (something 590 i believe, cant remember the name tongue.gif) and a Jericho 9mm. Me, I only had a spiked bat tongue.gif
We found out that is was someone in the big store in the city shooting. We got close enough to hear that it was a shotgun and gun a rifle as we had believe, so we got ready to go in. Coming up from behind the store, we slowly crawled up to the entrance in prone to take a look inside. We saw two people running around in there, 1 with a shotgun and 1 with a pickaxe. They were still shooting when we got up there..
They were shooting goddamn zombies with the thing!
My friend went in first and fired a shot at the dude with the shotgun. My friend and him just stood there trying to get cover while also be able to shoot one another. Meanwhile I had crawled a row further up than my friend and tried to gain some ground slowly, when the other dude runs past me, clearly not noticing me, I turn around and reach him just in time to kill him before he kills my friend biggrin.gif
My friend not noticing it, was still facing the dude with the shotgun. Seeing it would most likely take a million years for them to finish intimidating one another, I decided to take the long way around, and try to take him from the side. Plan doesnt go as I thought, he sees me and tries to get me, but that also means he left my friend out of sight. I started running around to keep his attention. My friend walks up and BLAM he's dead. thumb.gif
That meant we got another shotgun for me to run around with, and some supplies.
During the night we found atleast 6-7 shotguns in that store, either from people 'delivering' it to us, or by spawn. We are pretty sure that the two people came back, because people with the same skins showed up later tongue.gif

I ended up dying trying to kill someone in a building. We were 3 against 2 at that time, two of us died but our last guy managed to get them, so we gained a freaking sniper rifle, for our master sniper biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif
All in all a good day tongue.gif

Anyone out there still playing? Discount runs out tomorrow and I need someone to give me an excuse to purchase one of the packages more than likely Survivor or Pioneer. Please only comment if you have actually played the game as there is no reason to start all the BS from before.
