Why the game has NOT changed.
Why? Because I have recently learned something rather interesting that might shock a few people, as it did me.

Now I'm not too familiar with this games predecessor, War Inc. But I have been told that almost everything these developers have added was from War Inc. Now as you know, or should know, War Z (as it was originally titled) is a DIRECT port from War Inc. All they did was add zombies and a new map.

Now let me show you something with these new additions the developers have made.

1) VOIP- This feature was in War Inc so all HP had to do was just copy it on over and maybe fix up a few little errors.

2) Leaderboards- This feature was also in War Inc, so again, they just had to copy it on over and fix up some errors

3) Skills- Yet another feature in War Inc that was copied over. They merely added 2 extra skills to the tree that are by a happy coincidence, not currently working.


Now let's look at what is original.

1) Colorado- The map is original, but very small. Considering the amount of time the developers have claimed to have been working on the game for, this really isn't anything great.

2) Clans- Now this is a new feature and wasn't in War Inc but it is a relatively easy feature to implement. If you recall they have had numerous problems with clans. Why? Because they had to do it from scratch and not copy it on over.

3) Punkbuster- This cannot be credited to the developers because all they had to do was arrange a contract and PB creators would add it in themselves.


So basically anything original to the game is something that can be easily created and takes little time to do. So for those thinking that so much has changed since the game's realease, you are sorely mistaken.

The ONE key feature left they can implement from War Inc is the Friends feature, which we know is coming and I can predict that it will be soon.


Now as for private servers, this is EASY to do because all you need to do is just give people the option for a password on one of your public servers and your done. VERY LITTLE EFFORT involved.


NOTE: This is NOT a hate thread and does not have the intention of causing large arguments.

That is merely graphics.

I don't judge games based on their graphics. Whilst the game's graphics have improved a little bit, it isn't something that really counts as a "change" since release.

For those who are interested, I judge games based on the quality of their content because that is what draws people to games and is what keeps them playing those games.

For example: Borderlands 2 isn't great graphically wise, in terms of realism, but it was the content and gameplay that drew me in and kept me playing it.

So much "coming soon" featuers yet no real expections of any time soon. I guess its time for them to scratch their heads after all that copy and paste, how to proceed from here, and actually write some code. Very little content, and bugs get you auto banned. Game fail IMHO.
