I think the game is challenging at first, and not only that it has got so much slack as of late. I don't think the game deserves to be hacked and so forth. The company is trying to continue to make the game better, and there was even an item sale the other day. That isn't all as well the company put back the official WarZ servers as well. If the hackers keep attacking it only takes the resources away the company has in their hands to make the game better. I remember my first entourage into this game as I was eaten by zombies I wasn't player killed into well after I had 10 attempts at the game. Therefore, I don't know what everyone is fussing about unless I just got lucky. If hackers become a problem there is plenty of private servers that are hack free because owners kick them I would suggest them if you want hacker free. I would suggest several things as tips to any newbies of this game.
Tip 1: If you're going to travel alone stay clear of major towns/cities and major open areas. I would suggest sticking to the wooden paths of the game map.
Tip 2: If your gonna play the game at all pick a character model with dark clothes, and also don't wear anything too bright in color like the hard hat head item.
Tip 3: If you're gonna loot be smart about it look to loot at night which is tied to tip 2 above. Also build up your loot to stash in the global inventory get that cool gun then take it home for use later. In other words build up your characters.
Tip 4: Don't trust anybody unless you're teamspeaking, raidspeaking, or skyping with those in question. In that regard don't accept invites from just anyone, and if something is too good to be true then it usually is.
Tip 5: If you go into to a town or area and noticed no zombies, or you see a whole horde of them it means a player is nearby.
Tip 6: It can be good to travel in groups but that means double the provisions and things needed. Additionly there is friendly fire which can be hurtful as well. You don't want to actually by accident kill your buddy like me... lol.
Tip 7: Don't buy anything from the store until you're well established within the game to start with like bigger backpacks. Honestly most of the items in the marketplace can be found in-game with exception to the gun attachments. People are raging because, you're not playing the game smartly.
Tip 8: Play less populated servers to build up yourselves then when you're the wicked gun from the west then play more populated servers.
Tip 9: Save your sprint you never know when you might need it to haul tail from the infected as well. That also means take your time with the game it is meant to be taken tactically.
Tip 10: Don't just randomly waste food/water unless you need extra room to pick something up important. You shouldn't eat anything until your food/water gauge reaches at or below a 24th of the meter.
