Friendly fire off
I keep harping on about this, but if they made it so you couldn't kill people you grouped up with, it would totally transform the dynamics of this game for the better.

I'm 100% in agreement, They should have the option of PVE for sure. Make things allot more fun for team-work.

I don't know if they need a pve server option, but definitely like the idea of friendly fire off for team play. However, you guys know with the numbers of griefers attracted to the game, they would just party up with you, then ungroup and kill you when they got close enough. You'd have to put a degrading timer on it or something where for 15 min or so, you could not damage people you party up with.

aim better and party with trusted peeps only ... whos fault is it you accept group invites from thugs & co ??!!
plus you can rent a server if you want to go carebear and pve only

Hey Zury, no need to be a♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥about it. I do have my own server. My point was, not everyone that downloads the game is prepared to throw $80-$100 into it right off the bat to go up the learning curve or gain interest in the game.

Why do you feel so threatened by the ability to limit FF when in groups? If you just want to frag people all day, just go play XBox ...

Based on some of the "skill" I've seen from the pvp'ers in this game (just waiting all day around in a tree outside a safe zone, for example) most of them really aren't that skilled ...

even though I'm a one week old noob, I think that friendly fire should always be ON !
Indeed, it teaches you how to play and it's more realistic this way.

If you crave for a no frienfly fire server, maybe War Z is not the right game 4 u.... stick to Call of duty...
$hallow_Killer Jul 30, 2013 @ 10:00am 
lol - ok buddy, you just wait until you party with someone and they gank you.

As for me, I already have a server that I farm, so that I can get items for pvp. I'm not opposed to pvp. I'm opposed to vets taking advantage of bambis playing the game.
Al_Dozer Jul 30, 2013 @ 10:02am 
Yeah. I like the idea of a degrading timer $hallow_killer. Or maybe a 2 minute warning, giving the name, that somebody is leaving the group (that would be interesting XD).

I also agree that a purely PVE option is a bit over the top. But as it stands, the game favours the "shoot first apologise later" style of play, Hell I do it myself if I have a load of gear, I won't take the risk anymore. It's been an expensive lesson to learn.

I just want the ability to trust "peeps", based on something more tangible(sic) than somebody jumping and crouching and typing "Friendly"
$hallow_Killer Jul 30, 2013 @ 10:07am 
Alzee, I like your suggestions. Unfortunately you and I both know as it is now, the ONLY solution is killing whoever you see, or your own server. Otherwise, the vet players always have better gear.

I'm in your boat. Want to trust others, know that I can't!
Al_Dozer Jul 30, 2013 @ 10:23am 
Oh dear, somebody mentioned "realism". How exactly does it teach you to play Le Pucelard?

As $hallow_killer said, comeback in 3 months time and let us know if you still have the same viewpoint. Also,just because you're a 1 week noob doesn't mean you don't have you're opinions, they just might be a bit premature XD

Just to clarify what I mean by "friendly fire": The inabilty to kill or be killed by someby that has joined your group. NOT the inability to kill or be killed by everybody else (that would just be boring).

I never thought of renting a server for farming, $ilent_Killer. Might look into that.

One more thing (as Columbo would say). I've never played Call of Duty in my life........yet

They haven't interest to make a PVE server. PVE is too easy. And when you know tricks, it's easy to loot a maximum of things and to earn xp. They want that you buy equipment. So PK and PVP are good things for hammerpoint.
$hallow_Killer Jul 30, 2013 @ 10:48am 
Alzee, I find that a lot of hardcore PVP'rs get onto private servers to gain gear, then go and unleash themselves on the other servers. It just makes more sense when you think about it.

Hard to farm Norad or Camp Splinter if someone is just waiting to shoot you when you come out with the loot.

I'm down with that though. I can play that game too ...
$hallow_Killer Jul 30, 2013 @ 10:51am 
Lord - I agree with some of what you say. PVE can be too easy, but they could make it more difficult if wanted. Just like every other MMO though, it's all about the $$$ in the end.
