Lots of stuff is basically ripped from that and thrown into the game. Which I have no problem with, as they own the game and can do what they like, and there would be no point to make something completely new just to be new if it exists. That said, that seems like all they did pretty much. They took the interface, the models, textures, etc. etc. and threw them in. They also made some new things, lots copied out of DayZ, and threw them in. It is not a personal opinion, it is a ripoff of DayZ, blatantly. As I've said, the concept isn't considered copying, but they've copied everything else. Having to eat and drink, chopper crashes, weapon types, item types, etc. They added things like melee and jumping which are great...to bad the melee barely works.
They also just banned me from the forums for "trolling, not needed input, we don't need your kind here" stuff. Granted I was saying some stuff that shouldn't have been said and the ban was deserved (permanent is kind of harsh though), but what they are doing is closing/deleting threads and banning/deleting accounts that say bad stuff about their game. It's ridiculous.
And for the flashlight, look at The War Z wiki page: http://www.warzwiki.com/index.php?ti...ht&redirect=no
Swings to Kill
Body: 2-3 for Survivors, 100 for Zombies
Head: 1 for Survivors, 100 for Zombies
I mean Day Z is more or less doing the same. The same arguments you use against War Z can directly apply to Day Z, the only thing I can really see getting your panties in a bunch is that Day Z came first and then War Z (which IMO is absurd). I'd never use this game did it first argument to praise or dismiss anything.
"Having to eat and drink, chopper crashes, weapon types, item types, etc. They added things like melee and jumping which are great...to bad the melee barely works. "
I don't know under what context you said all that but just to be clear, all this has been done before Day Z as well you know...
I'm sure if they got enough complaints from the community they would change the amount of hits it takes to melee kill zombies/players with the flashlight.
