The Death of DAYZ Stand Alone....
While some may say, the stand alone is a success, with "sales" from a technical stand point, its been a failure an let me explain.

both the mod and SA are alpha. The mod is more polished then then SA. Sure, SA has helmets, and hand cuffing, but its core elements like guns, cars, helis, ect are better in the MOD.

The Stand Alone, instead of picking up where the MOD left off, has gone off in a new direction, and people arent happy about it..its more unstable then the MOD..the introduction of battle eye, which was a COMPLETE failure in stopping Server Nukes, is now in SA causing lag, causing people who were mad battle eye doesnt really stop hacks, and basically is a BAN hammer that is a judge and jury, and executioner in taking your CD KEY....

so now, you have new players, who will come in spend hours finding stuff, only for a hacker to kill them. or get banned by mistake by battle eye...

think about this, the only anti hacks that actually make dayz playable, cost more then the SA, and are made by 3rd party...

so imagine that lag...valve anti hack........battle eye......3rd party anti hack

it also shows, the DAYZ team isnt going to FIX hacking issues themselves, they will dump it on battle eye, which causes more harm then good in most cases. Battle eye failed, during the mod, and anyone who ran a dayz server knows what server nukes do....Many people get globally banned by battle eye by mistake.

Most of the mods of the DayZ mod are more complete.

Most mods of dayz including dayz are in a late beta state, if not they are completed products. The comparison to the SA alpha cannot be made.

of course it can, its the same game, on the same engine... both with ALPHA in their names...

Even if some of the mods are more complete in some ways, the zombies in the mod are still impossable to fight making it unplayable.

And its hilarious how much they charged for the mod, when they initially said it was going to be 15 bucks. These guys are WARZ level scammers, but the fanboys will fight us to death about it if we even bring it up.

What I mean is, did you ever play the alpha of epoch? or the alpha of origins? Those would be acceptable comparisons, comparing a beta to an alpha is problematic as they will obviously be in very different developmental stages.

well, the same can be said about the SA... The zombies are glitched walking through walls...they are still DUMB AI, who dont shoot. How can you not get this right?

Im glad they spent all that time on this game to deliver this cuntastic alpha and raked in 30million for minimal work.

30 million...and instead of building a better anti hack, they slap battle eye on it...again... Already people are starting to get banned, which is unfair considering a hacker could teleport people and get them banned...

Well, if the goal was to take the money and run dean and team are laughing all the way to the bank... enjoy your laggy experience with 3 anti hacks to play 1 game...
shrivel Jan 5 @ 10:33pm 
The anti hacks cant even stop the directX function hackers lmfao.

Battleye has a very low rate of false bans. The hackers are tuna fished... they're attacking the servers and steam. Tuna them. Eventually they'll get bored and go hack some other game. Sorry tuna, you should have expected this.

The thing is that the mod is in alpha and was not being developed much because they got the offer to make a standalone mod on a DIFFERENT ENGINE, it is not arma 2 engine...it is take on helicopter engine with some arma 3 engine parts..
Now they are making it off the scratch because its gonna be much better for them (cleaner code, more freedom, etc...).

Now imagine having all those mods (origins, overwatch, epoch...) on a much better "base" of dayz.

And about zombies. They have completely reworked the AI and the way they work.
It has been said that the zombies are the main thing to focus on in ALPHA.


And to be honest if you compare this alpha to many other alpha games, this has a very good start.

I get mad sometimes after I die, for whatever reason. But all in all I thnk for an Alpha Release - You know a prototype "built on all new code". This is pretty good start, I hate RUST, I dreadfully hate WARZ - Infestation, even with the alpha-glitches I like this game, I can't wait for the full release. Even this last update was good. The zombies are much better than in Arma MOD.

I have noticed that script injectors have begun attacking the servers, in retalliation to BattleEye I'm sure, I think its funny how "pirate/hacker players" spend days and weeks ruining legitimate players games, but become enraged when they get banned. Its like they think they are entitled to something more than the rest of us, especially when they don't even support, and only harm the game.
