The true side of The War Z
The passed few days the forums have been full of Hammerpoints worst lies and the people have ripped them all new ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Bans have been handed out to MANY people, especially those who are known and respected in the community. I was one such person to be banned for voicing my opinion, which was also fact.

The truth is, The War Z will shut the game down sometime around the end of Feb. I stated this in their server pricing thread and was immediately banned on the grounds of "trolling". The source of my information was given to me by an old member (recently removed from everything Hammerpoint related) of the Dev team. He stated in an article that Hammerpoint will shut the War Z down at the end of Feb if it is no longer profitable.

This has been spread throughout the community and many people are believing it. And yet there are still those who are willing to give Hammerpoint their money for a game they believe to be great. This is WRONG on SO many levels. A company that creates a game that mimics that of another (before the original idea has had a chance to be released) in order to grab a little money and potential destroy the other game's reputation. Not only that, but they use ideas and software from a previous game to ensure they have the new one out quickly.

Arktos entertainment and Hammerpoint Interactive should NOT be allowed to do this, nor should they have been allowed to get even THIS far. A company that lies to it's customers and cares for nothing but the money in their wallets should NOT be allowed to exist after committing such a heineous act.

After reading this you may call me a hater, but believe me if you have even begun to see what Hammerpoint are really doing and what the people running it all are REALLY like, then you will agree with me. Kewk himself has been proven to treat others with NO respect and uses utterly disgusting words.

We need to band together as a gaming community and do EVERYTHING we can do let other people know of how bad this has become. We must FORCE those with the power to do something about this, to actually do something about it, instead of listening to the lies of Hammerpoint over and over again.

This has been a huge blow to the gaming community and we should hope that no other company dares to do this again!

The damage is already done. At some point other companies will copy Hammerpoints business practices because in some way they where successfull...on the other I fear that a lot of players will loose faith in this young genre and games like the DayZ Standalone will suffer because of this...both of these mentioned events will shape the gaming world for the worst...and this makes me sad
Edit: and when they will pull the plug they will say: sorry we are discontinuing developing this game...unfortunatly we can´t give people their money back who rented servers 6 month in advance...

Not me. I think they've got a great idea.
If they want to make a LOT of money they will keep it going and finish the game.

Call me cynicle but wouldn't that actually cost more money in the long run to fully develop this game than it would if they cut their losses and run as soon as the opportunity presented itself?

I can't imagine they will shut the game down until there is any competition in the genre. I'm also pretty surprised that they have been making updates to the game at all. I had assumed when I got it that the game wasn't going to be worked on anymore.

We all know this game was a HUGE mistake. it was a spin off o DayZ, and it already has had many problems. soon, people are just going to give up on the game.
Siresly Feb 17, 2013 @ 11:06am 
You're right about everything else, but as long as the game's putting them sufficiently in the green they're not gonna shut it down.

What is this supposed developer source? Do you have an exact quote and verification of his identity as a former Hammerpoint employee?

And honestly, at this point, if people still buy this game or otherwise keep funding this boondoggle operation, there's nothing anyone can do about it. Either they never visit the many, easily accessible sites on which they would be informed of what a shonky game and bunk ♥♥♥ company they would be supporting, or they don't listen.

To the ones letting their wallets say: "More of this, please.", I say they deserve it.

Then why do people want to trade it still and buy it and insist on labelling us all as hater's?

I can't work it out myself and when I try to see their logic, it make's my ear's bleed and my brain hurt.

Welcome to the War Z forum, it must be you're 1st day here :p (joke).

It's kind of been like that since day 0. We're constantly labelled as either War Z hater's, War Z Fanboy's, Day Z hater's or Day Z fan boy's.

This is part of the package due to Sergey Titov's master stroke of making a Day Z style game and getting people all worked up and confused over what the War Z is.

That is the source of my information. Obviously he is only an ex-forum mod but he DID have inside information into the whole thing. Plus he was also a respected member of the community and people believe him.

Whilst this does not directly mention The War Z shutting down at the end of Feb, but rather in 6 months if it is no longer profitable. This post was made 2 months ago but is a copy of the original. I do not know when the original post was made but I am of the assumption that it was 1-2 months prior to this one being made.

EDIT: At Hunterkiller, normally I would agree with you but in this case the media have not screwed anything up but have rather sided with the community. It was Arktos and Hammerpoint that screwed it all up by creating a game that is based off of another. It was obvious that people would be labelled as such
