IN DEFENCE OF WARZ!
There are alot of good things about this game alot of people are just shouting scam because someone else said it well here is my opinion yes ill admit it was poorly executed to the public at the beginning and yes it said it had alot that it just did not have. yes there are hackers. But what everyone is failing to notice is that warz has to deal with more hackers then any other game i've heard of. They are getting better with security and yes this latest hack did just happen where somone brought down the main server, but unlike target or any of those other big chains that have been hacked they did not get payment info.
The warz team is continually updating the game and adding new content and making it more secure all the time, the things slowing it down are all the bad press from people who are whining about how its a SCAM ITS A SCAM blah blah blah yeah you can read what everyone else says and repeat it good for you.
Yes it is a hard game always watching out at the beginning for zombies and some random guy with a gun who could shoot you and you'd be done. but that is what makes it good it provides a challenge rarley seen it gets closer to how you would have to act in a real apocalypse then most games discounting the fallout series. there are good people and if you just look you can find a pve server to start out on and make some friends so you dont just get blown away the first minute on a regular server. Also everyone who is calling for this to be taken off steam it is just childish, let people decide for themselves if they want to spend their money or not. Also if you do want to rant about how you hate warz there is now an anti warz group on steam go voice your opinions there instead of the same people posting the same thing over and over in these forums.
Also getting back to the original topic yes warz you cannot drive in there are no currently working vehicles, it is my beleif that one day they will be but you hardly notice it when your in the action of warz. Also yes some things need to be fixed in game but that takes time and it is being fixed slowly but surely.
The game has a good community minus hackers. The game content is continually being added to and refined. The entire idea and gameplay is great in my book, the reality having to get food water ammo, always having to watch your back. there are new things coming out like a new map of california was reportedly in the works and was going to come out soon before the big hacker attack recently. Also another plus it is only a one time payment of 15 dollars to play no monthly subscription or anything
Lots of hackers. It was poorly advertised in the beginning. A very hard game (tip: if you die right away look on here for a pve server or anywhere and join them meet some friends get better equiped then go into pvp worlds.)
Edits (stuff that is serious that people have posted that should be up for all to know
Originally posted by Dallas:
Sergei Titov said they had a 400 square kilometer map, that servers could hold 250 players. Said that even with 250 players on the server, the map was so big that you'd only come across other players every 15 minutes.
The thing is their zombie mod for War Inc. could never deliver these numbers, he simply pulled these numbers out of a hat, because they were bigger than DayZ's 225 square kilometers and 40 player servers. When he posted these exaggerated claims on the Steam sale's page, people felt cheated, because what was advertised wasn't what they bought.
He was forced to edit the Steam sale's page several time.
Originally it read: Several worlds over 400 square kilometers.
After criticism he changed it to: Between 100 and 400 squre kilometers.
After more criticism he changed it again: Over 100 square kilometers.
After that Steam had enough and took WarZ down.
Now it simply says: Huge world!
Because Colorado isn't 400 square kilometers.
Colorado isn't even 100 square kilometers.
It's probably somewhere between 10 and 30 square kilometers.
The size of Colorado is only one of the many controversies in WarZ's short lifespan

OP while you are entitled to your opinion, I disagree. The game itself, I did enjoy, for a time. I played it in the beginning and this is where it all started to go downhill for me. The game itself has never really been the issue, but the companies actions and community support is so far below par that this game should be wiped from all known existence.
When a lot of us started playing it was in alpha, there were bugs.... but the moment anyone said a ba word about these bugs on the forums.... boom.... thread deleted. Their customer service was ♥♥♥♥ and it hasn't improved in recent times. But due to this procedure, stuff all bugs were fixed, and HP thougt their ♥♥♥♥ didnt stink
A lot of people bought the $50 legends pack back then, which was meant to include 3 months free of stronghold servers....... now some months on we have servers we have to play for, we have a working microtransaction market, but nothing about the free stronghold servers still.......
The artwork...... to be frank.... I think their artwork on the forums at present is bad.... It is amazing that after HP were made to remodel their website after being caught using images from elsewhere(quite blatantly), that their new images sucked ♥♥♥♥.....
Fairfight system....... oh my, what a failed system......What hack osnt set up as an overlay nowadays? I have more chance of winning the lottery then fairfight has in catching someone with legitimet proof. You are kidding yourself if you feel this system works in anyway shpe or form. You know the hacking in this game probably would be nowhere near as bad if Sergey himself didnt say "this game is unhackable" WRONG..... alk about sending an open invite ....
There was the steam failure..... a blatant blatant case of false advertising. Sergey even admitted that what they wrote is what they wrote... we just missintepreted it.... wow..... several thousand people misinterpreted an advert....... Steam never gives refunds...or very raely, so for Steam to give ANYONE a refund, it must be bad.
You noted security and HP's efforts to continue upgrading the security..... what a ♥♥♥♥ing joke, are you serious? After the events of the last 2 weeks, do you really think that you can make a statement like that and believe it is valid? They were hacked, and not just in that someone got access to the forums...... the whole game client, sever files, player details, databases....etc. This is a monumental failure. There hasnt been this kind of failure since Sony's DCUO got hacked and they hd to shut the game down for 2 weeks. And this wasnt the first time that hp had security issues. Devin Hutchinson's account was hacked and had the entire forums deleted...... and in HP's wisdom they didnt have a backup of the forums........ and now with this latest saga, it quite clearly proves that their security is quite bad. ANYONE who has joined the website.
Of course HP were looking to make a few dollars, what company isn't, but they business practises leave a lot to be desired. They release a game that should of stayed in /alpha/beta a lot longer then what it should have. More of the bugs, issues, hacking problkems should of been sorted long before opening up the GC market and purchasable servers. HP had already been getting money from people buying the game initially, so they should of not bee so desperate for money.
The thing that really did it for me, was that this game..... the game they claim to have been in development for 2 years(which there is proof if admins stating otherwise) that they had worked so hard on developing, was no more then a copy paste from war inc plus a few zombies. The characters were the same. The items/random vehicles/landscape/buildings was all a direct port from War Inc. It even had the same bugs as war inc......... They werent claiming this was a mod(like day z) HP were claiming it was a newly developed game they had spent years on developing..... wrong.
This was nothing more then a cash grab and anyone with half a brain can see this. But if you feel you should keep providing Kewk and others a holiday around the states in their flash cars and ♥♥♥♥ then go ahead.... its your money, throw it away as you wil
Note: Now i know someone out there will not like what i have to say and i respect that, i probably violated some rul or guidline i honestly do not know. But if your going to report this just to have it taken down so there is not anything else showing the other side of the story, then that is sad. Now i realize there is some bias in this as i like the game and will always rcommend it. but if there are some points i missed on either side feel free to message them to me and i will add to this post but please be respectful.
