Creating stories - connecting people

DUG is a private hive community with a lively and persistent universe of characters and factions in an organic RolePlay environment that does not restrict your ingame freedom and preserves DayZ's nature. Our fast growing Reddit-based community was established by most of the DayZ closed Alpha testers and community moderators. DUG is DayZ's first private hive community and started out as a secret testbed for DayZ’s private hive technology and until today, we maintain our close ties to the developers themselves.

DayZ Underground Servers


While our 1PP private hive servers are usually open for everyone to join, we do lock them for Whitelist Weekends and regular server events, which can range from simple meet-ups to sophisticated RP-centric events with overarching story lines and unexpected twists. We are incredibly humbled to see that the enormous interest has placed our servers consistenly to the worldwide highest ranks of all 1PP DayZ servers.

Visit to join the community and whitelist.

Private Forum is our beating heart. This is where all the exciting stories, videos and experiences are shared. Every day, our community creates a new frontpage of fresh content from within our universe. Factions are organizing and recruiting, bounties are offered, stories told and rumors spread.

Organic RolePlay

Traditional roleplay has a lot of rigid rules and forces interactions, which can quickly make them feel meaningless.
DUG takes a different approach and does not force interaction - instead they form naturally in organicRP.
We embrace DayZ's open, dynamic and sometimes chaotic nature. You can and will be engaged in spontaneous firefights, your heart will jump out of your chest and you will die. Death is the essence of DayZ and the fear of permanent loss makes our hearts pump adrenaline. We work with it, instead of constructing artificial rules and restrictions around it.

Our core rules are the Code of Conduct which secures our reputation as a mature and civil community.

We approach you with sincere trust and confidence that you will organically be able to deliver a good story without needing artificial rules. We cultivate a community of people who don't need all these rules and are organically aware of what good content, an entertaining story and enjoyable RP are!
DUG EU Whitelist June 9th and 10th!
Donations and the Future of the DUG EU Server
Hello DUG Community! We have a couple things to discuss here.

As most of you know, our community’s game servers and Teamspeak are financially supported by its members. It’s because of all your support and donations that a community like DUG can exist; where we can play one of our favorite games and share our experiences with each other.

When we first opened up the DUG EU server, it was almost entirely financially supported by members of the Karma Krew, and later both Deadlyslob and M1ndr; we are very thankful they are supporting our community. At this time, some of these streamers and content creators have other financial obligations and we will need to turn to the greater DUG community for donations if we wish to continue operating both servers.

At this very moment, it costs ~$325 USD a month to pay for all of the services we currently use. We have over 4,300 whitelisted accounts on DUG and over 2,200 members subscribed to the subreddit. If even just 25% of our members were able to give a recurring donation of $1/month, we would have more than enough to pay for everything. Of course, donations of any amount will be taken and we greatly appreciate each and every one of you that help make DUG what it is today.

There is no “physical” benefit from donating; we don’t hand out icons, flairs, or special privileges to anyone that helps us financially with the server. But, these donations do keep us up and running smoothly. All the donations we collect go ONLY to paying for the servers we use. After being active on our servers and being active in TS/our subreddit, donating to our servers is the next biggest way to support your favorite DayZ community.

The other thing we must discuss as a community is a Whitelist Schedule for our EU server for the remainder of June. The Moderation Team thinks greater interest in players on EU joining our community will come about with the implementation of a whitelisted schedule for the EU server. Now, this schedule we would hope be the same as the EU one in the distant future, but for now we are going to be implementing a shorter schedule on the weekends to get more people applying to join our community. Tentatively, we were considering a six hour block on Saturdays and Sundays every weekend and would like to gauge from EU players what hours they think would work best. Please let us know your thoughts about this whitelisted schedule, and what times you think would best fit the EU server!

I got banned from DUG US for stream sniping deadly slob and aces fury. i have footage that proves i didn't do it: follow the link. I met deadly later in staroye when i was heading down to give my friend the loot from my two kills when i was killed by him. I ask that you review all of the footage and im also interested into what made you think i was watching the stream, as i wasn't. follow the link. i was shot at, flanked around the guy that shot me, killed him, started looting, then killed someone i heard coming up behind me. i was not stream sniping. I Met deadly again in staroye after talking to a friend through steam messages, who told me he was spawned at kamy and was gonna work his way up to staroye, so i took the stuff, like the sks and planned to meet him there. instead i was greeted with a shotgun blast and a ban... Here's the link:
