Looks like I need to make some DayZ friends if I plan on surviving much longer.

Did you really expect it to be any different? The shoot on sight mentality is deeply rooted.

Thats the exact reason why I wont join that alpha, even though I am a huge DayZ fan. Without PvE servers, this will turn into a kos fragfest, like the big ripoff warz showed. I cant think of any game mechanic that could change that, things you need help with are nice but those actionkiddies will give a ♥♥♥♥ and still kill you, even if you have just spawned. I still have big hopes for that game but as long as there is no solutions for this I wont sink money into it.

Yeah I've had the same but there does seem to be a lot more people actually talking and wanting to work together, so it's been a mixed batch so far. But kos is always going to be a part of it and you just have to be extra careful:)

That's what killed DayZ for me. It turned out to be just deathmatch with zombies. Pffff...
Old Pete Dec 17, 2013 @ 5:17am 
It would be a deathmatch if everybody spawned with a decent gun. Hell, I would even consider playing it then. But now, where you start with nothing and are utterly defenceless against those jerks that get of on killing victims (not opponents)? Certainly not. 2 servertyps (pvp and pve) would solve that easly, but that would mean less sacrificial lambs on the pvp servers, I guess that why so many oppose this idea so strongly.

I don't shoot on sight but i will shoot if you're armed and in my way, not taking the risk.

I don't shoot on sight...unfortunately most other people do and I end up paying for it in the long run.

Such is life, DayZ isn't about keeping all your ♥♥♥♥ forever after all.

please don't get mad when you get ♥♥♥♥♥, if someone doesnt shoot me on sight I WILL kill him when I get a chance. Survival of the fittest, you are prey

i just played on a server where 8 random people teamed up and headed north. everybody shared their loot, and had a good time until the server crashed: :(

so it's not all KOS. there's probably gonna be less KOS in the beginning of the standalone, just like it was in the early days of the mod where most people were friendly unless provoked.

Have you never played DayZ before? i shoot on sight, rather that than be shot....
TheFish Dec 17, 2013 @ 5:35am 
I have yet to be killed, the people I've met have been pretty friendly although I wouldn't trust them enough to travel with them. It's bound to happen but it doesn't seem nearly so bad as you're making out. Maybe i've just been lucky.

I just started and ran into a guy, who immediately told me he was not going to kill me (which he didnt). then today i ran into a little ♥♥♥♥♥♥ with a knife, kept driving circles around him until he gave up...

While I did kill my fair share of noobs and player today, the highlight certainly was getting a player to lay proned and handcuffing them. Then stripping them of all their belongings and leaving alone and naked in the bush.

Ammo seems to be rarer than weapons my whole crew had M4s but only one had a mag and ammunition, still fun to hold people up and steal their ♥♥♥♥. Mind Power Mofos.
