.40 cents a respawn?
I bought Warz's beta months ago. Considering you can easily burn through multiple characters .40 cents a respawn is crazy to me.

If you're on any full server it is very easy to die in seconds of spawning or entering any settelement. Playing Warz Solo is basically just asking to die within 30 minutes. It is near impossible for any solo player to stay alive for long without a second player acting as spotter when entering towns.

I just logged on the other night before it hit steam just for fun and was killed a server with 10 players within 5 minutes, I never even saw the guy. He probably was server hopping and spawned in behind me.

Warz is fun if you ahve a few friends to help with survival but if you're solo good luck with that.

Adding a .40 cent respawn fee is crazy to me considering the game is essentially griefer heaven with shoot on site mentality from 99% of the player base.

Not to mention the game is full of hackers just like all Russian/Eastern European games are.

Personally, I think people are over exaggerating the hacker issue. I played all last night and never encountered any. I've countered a few while playing but not "80% of the population".

The pay for fast respawn is fine by me. I actually used it twice. Why does War Z get hate for it while other Buy to Play games has cash shops and ease of life type of items. I'm guessing its either A) The hate bandwagon for WarZ or B) This is really the first game of it's genre actually doing this and it will get some time to used to.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very neutral on this ordeal. I hate the 4 hour respawn time and think it should be lowered to maybe 2 hours. But, I think the 50GC for INSTANT respawn is perfectly fine. You got killed by a guy and want to kill him? Pay 50GC, requip your character with global inventory then spawn in and hunt him down. You spawn relavitly close to where you died at a spawn point (which is skewed because someone can camp that spawn location and kill you). That's what my friends and I did when we had a big 4v4 shoot out and died. Was it justifiyable that we paid 30-40 cents? Yes. I play Guild Wars 2 and personally, the gamble box system is a worse offender compared to TF2 boxes where you can get your money's worth from a key to open a box.

They need to stop posting and get a dedicated PR guy who doesn't ♥♥♥♥ things up because that's what the dev team is doing. Broken Promises? Yeah, most MMOs have the same issue. War Z just feels like the scapegoat.

The hackers quit because even they got tired of the badness of the game. Also 40 cents a spawn is only because they realized there scam was actually working.

Dude you can get killed by a backpack, YES A BACKPACK, within seconds of respawn. It's a scam.

It costs 40c every time you die? You have to pay that fee to keep playing?

This is ♥♥♥♥ I expect from a F2P game. Not something from a pay once to play game.

It would be like forcing you to pay to respawn in less than four hours on a game like battlefield 3 or something like that.

That's the half-truth. It's .40c to cut the 4 hour wait time to immediately play again. It's similar to how farmville only lets you do actions until you need energy.

Stealth: not farmville. MafiaWarz

No not quite. You can wait four hours ! lol. That's how long the wait is if you don't cough up the cash.

So wait you paid for a game and then they are charging you to reduce the spawn timer? SO glad I never was interested in this game I will only be delivering this game to bad children cause it is far worse then coal.

Not only that but it was orginaly stated that this wouldn't be a play to win game by the developers. Then the game came with a one hour spawn to play timer and lastely, they changed it to four hours within days of release.

I really... really... do not understand why this game doesn't just let us respawn..Do we seriously have to wait 18 minutes WHENEVER WE die just to respawn? It already sucks that we lose everything. (Including purchased things with real money which is complete bulll♥♥♥♥.) Everything in this game revolves around you opening yoru wallet. It sucks so much. I play with my bf and if one of us dies.. the other has to wait 18 minutes.. IT'S THE WORST SET UP I've ever seen. I feel like I'm being trolled having no respawn option. -______-
