how to activate War Z on steam
Simply go here
http://forums.thewarz.com/showthread.php?84871-Steam-Activation-Keys-for-EXISTING-players
and click the link.

I bought the War Z after it had been pulled from steam, but found myself wanting the ability to use the steam overlay with my friends list etc active.

People are hating on this game a lot but I tend to judge by the fact that it has been in the top 100 games played on steam since it came out even though it was only available for purchase on steam for a short time. Obviously a lot of people found something to like about it.

P.S. You have to buy the game from the website FIRST then you can activate it on steam using the link.

they only got that number because of the massive sales they got ...sales they got from 'over the top' fraudulent marketing, and people bought the game based upon the blatant lies.

And nearly all Steam customers were fully refunded no questions asked due to the fact that the game did NOT have the features promised and used false and staged screenshots, plagiarized content, etc.

so ya ...... not a top game at all.

this game is 'proven' to be one of the WORST games in video game history.

I challenge you to find any review out there that is positive.....

Did you see the YouTube video posted earlier this month/last month that rated it a 6/10? That's pretty positive to me and he did rate it based on the amount of fun he had in the game.

no.

I dont believe any sane or truthful reviewer would ever give it a six.

so ya, I call BS on that ever being legit.

Lol not a top game at all? Its on the top 100 list because people play it NOW. Not because so many people bought it when it first became available on steam.
Besides how long have you actually played War Z for? An hour? Have you played at all lately?

and lol...it only has 600 players playing, and peaked at just over 1400 for all of today...that is not good stats at all.... Euro Truck and Farming Simulators peaked better than WarZ did.

anywhere in the top 100 on steam is respectable. And you haven't answered my question. I'm willing to bet you know little to nothing about War Z, as is the case with most of its detractors.

again, keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.

I have fun playing it now that content has been added. I am severel dissapointed in the sales tactics and believe their should be some sort of repremandation. I would like to see the game come back to steam to promote team play. I purchased the game a month after it cam out not on steam, I am part of the group that got "scammed".
first impressions 4/10 now 6.5/10 for entertainment.

I kind of would like to know that question myself. How long have you played warz for? If you can't answer that question then you have no business talking XD. As for myself I didn't like it so much at first but now im loving the game that it is starting to get updated and features added. Best played with friends or people on the server. Gone lone wolf can become boring.

sure does drive you guys nuts though.....
I'll keep you guessing I think..... the presumptions are very amusing.
it seems that's all you got for an argumentative defense ....

here's a summary of how it goes every time :

poster 1)" War Z is proven a scam and awful compilation of sub par and plagiarized elements. evidence can be found everywhere.... metascore is 23, Steam kicked them off their vendor list.. lots of links and damning reviews, investigations for fraud, suspended trademarks, .etc, etc "

poster 2) " oh ya ! well, we want to try and discredit you to make us feel better for buying into the false hype about the really bad game, and it drives us nuts that we don't know anything about you to use as an ad hominem attack, so we are going to question the time spent logged in instead, 'cause that's all we got.... "

Drive me nuts? I enjoy it, it shows how some people have to little to do in their lives that they actually come here to bother people about a game they've never even played.

Riddle me this then. If you can at least tell me what is in the center of the square at Frosty Pines in the game I'll at least believe you've played for an hour or so, since everyone who plays has been there.

Also you can say its a scam, and point to the reviews etc, but those reviews are either a product of ignorance (since the reviewers do things like trying to kill zombies by hitting them in the chest with a flashlight, and never get any other weapons than that since they dont have a clue) or vitriol, since the reviewers are likely justifiably angry at the behavior of the developer, which was shameful no doubt.

None of that changes the fact that lots of people still play it and still have fun with it. I think that's what drives YOU nuts.
