On The Fence.
Reading through the forums and watching the various reviews I have seen alot of hate on this game. I am still not sure wether or not to invest in this and would like to hear a positive opinion of this game from a fan, If you could give me some answers to these questions then youve sold me.

1. Why are the Terms and Service Conditions a Copy paste of League Of Legends?
2. If the way to play and to avoid Hackers is to play on small servers what is the point of the game?
3. What is with all the repors of global blacklisting attempts of player that give the game bad press or demand a refund?
4. Is any of the steam page description true?

1. Because the devs were lazy back then. Sergey used to work for Riot, and probably copy pasted the one he had over and forgot to change everything in it; one of the links still led to LoL.
2. The game is more fun in small servers anyway. Too many people and its a never ending pvp deathmatch. A good amount is 7-8, where the world feels empty and seeing someone else is cause for concern, but the maps are just too small for any of this to really matter.
3. Not sure on the validity of some of it, some people that got refunds were allegedly blacklisted by xsolla which put them on a list as an untrusted customer for other sites.. I've never heard of anything like that existing.

4.
I'll go over it, here

atm its not too lie-y, I'd go find the old store page that did blatantly lie but im too lazy
got to mention that when the store page went up, there were no 100 player servers, but they added them in response

Here's what I suggest, if the $15 really means that much to you:

Go look at the list of things that the devs say they are going to put in the game. Write it down somewhere, and wait a month. If any of the major things you want to see are implemented by that time, I'd say buy it.

if you are on the fence, dont get it. its better to wait 3 more montys to see if it gets better

i used to be a fan of this game. It was actually good a few days ago if you like the fast gameplay pvp and so on.
A patch blindly adressing an issue that wasnt even there ruined the game a few days ago and so far the devs are not trying to fix it.
Starting the game right now is nothing but pointless and frustrating. You will simply be shot all day while not finding any weapon yourself. Better stay away for now.

sadly dayz standalone will not be an option for many players here.. warz is completely different in gameplay.. Running around for hours just to lose literally 100% of your progress when being sniped from 2km away is not for everyone.. Dayz standalone will have a lot of unhappy customers as well, especially when staying on the arma engine with all its unreal realism, like (and i like to repeat myself) killing yourself by closing a door or braking your legs by turning around.

They actaully released a statement this week, saying they are delaying it a few months to completly redifine the engine. Also to work out all the bugs/kinks.
They had some screens, and it looked gorgeous.

Still. it will be the same (gameplaywise) as dayz mod.. meaning ultra large map, ultra long walking and spawning faaaaar away after death. DayZ is a very slow game, i only quit it because of the massive abuse of hackers but i know many people who didnt like the game because it was too slow. I even know people thinking warz is way too slow and its like 10 times as fast..

god you are one of those dayzfanboiz .... are you really that simple minded or just pretending ? Dayz has no features besides looting and shooting. The vehicles in there might be called a feature but they are only there because of the large map and server admins usually take them before opening the server to the public anyways.. there is nothing in dayz that is not in warz.
Even the clan system in warz showing your clan mates in game is a feature dayz doesnt have...

WILL
Standalone will introduce a lot of things.
If it doesn't, I'll bite the bullet on it.
I don't like dayz right now for that exact reason.

As i said on the other post.. NAME SOMETHING

quests ? how the hell do you want to add quests. Its not a real mmo.. and playing it asan mmo wont work.. what else could they add ?
This genre has nothing to add.. Everything that might seem possible is just pointless.. Skills ? Qeusts? Crafting is like the only "possible" thing (similar to burntime) but in the end crafting is pointless as well since there is nothing to craft but weapons or other fighting gear. there is no other gameplay in this genre than looting and shooting and no other stuff can or will be added to the game ever..

This is a widely repeated untruth that annoys me quite a bit. There's very little wrong with the base ArmA 2 engine; I've been a fan of the game for a long time, because I'm a military procedural geek and I enjoy milsims. ArmA 2 is a very tightly crafted, well-executed game - the reason that you see a lot of bugs, silly animations, and nonsensical issues within DayZ is because the mod attempts a lot of things that the game simply wasn't made for. The broken-bone-collision system wasn't even a thing in base ArmA 2, and animations like running unarmed are seen so infrequently in ArmA 2 that they've never really needed to be addressed. All in all, if Day Z starts running on its own engine, based on ArmA 2 but more suited for the game, it should be much better.

Anywho, I would honestly advise you not buy the game, OP. I do own it and I do play it a few times a week, but it just isn't that fun, in my opinion. Sadly, what it boils down to is taste and preference; none of us can really tell if you'll love it, because while a friend and I might enjoy the hell out of a lot of the same games, he might absolutely love The War Z while I only play it to occasionally pass time. The only advice that I CAN give you is to wait until some of the current horrendous PR and controversy blows past, see if the game is still standing and improving, and if it is, give it a go.

Thats what i ment ;) the arma engine is not made for this kind of game, the realism of the weapons, wind influence etc is "too much" for my taste, while being able to telport players with a script just shouldnt be possible. Alot of the keybiondings are not even used in dayz, making quite a lot of the arma engine useless. Thats why i think the arma engine isnt the best place to create sch a mod and i hope they not just edit it but really create their own engine based on arma to get rid of all the issues.

To not derail the thread too much: there are tons of lets plays on youtube that show the gameplay of warz with all its ups and downs..a good way to make your own opinion before listenting to players who are most likely biased in one way or the other.

What I don't get is why they are making katanas? Why don't the devs work on more important matters such as not taking fall dmg when you fall from like 2 ft. Also work on the map being bigger instead of trying to please the crowd with a damn katana and santa bags...they say this game is in "foundation" but keep adding nonsense. Work on something you promised...
