    1.7.1 update has been released and this game just got a whole lot harder. Kinda sucks it just happened as Easy Rhino and I were in the game and just fixed a van. Oh yeah, no more starting out with a weapon. You get a flashlight instead.:)

    Last night i made my atv fly over 200 feet in the air and i died. Had a yellow car for a day drove it past cherno and electro all day getting shot at untill our luck ran out. We have just stole a bus and cant wait to start the party! We play on dallas25 it seems to allways have people playing and stable most of the time.

    I found a respawn point for a large truck that looks like it can hold a bunch of people. I just need to get used to the way the zombies act first.

    This is the truck:

    Here's the van we fixed and I also stumbled upon a crashed heli earlier.

    omg wtf is with the zombies now in 1.7.1. also, a server admin screwed us hard last night. and not the good kind of screwed.

    edit: start with a flashlight? omg this game is impossible now. all i want to do is have a decent chance at taking a vehicle around without having to spend 2 hours working on it. now this game is super lame :(

    Im staying on 1.7 till they bring back a starter weapon. Giving everyone just a flashlight will just make all the call of duty kids going to the shore after finding a weapon and shoot you in the face. Don't worry you can blind them and scream IM FRIENDLY!!!

    yes, switching to flashlight only is super pathetic. i like the survival aspect of the game but this is ridiculous. and it is true that now if you just want to grief people go to the shore and easily kill them. not to mention without a weapon it is going to take a lot longer to creep around towns finding something to defend yourself with.

    I like what they did with the patch. I see people not shooting each other as much. Also, even though you start with no weapons you can actually hide from the zombies now.

    Been playing DayZ since it's public release, f'ing love it. Until today. 1.7.1 has changed things dramatically, however these have now been identified as bugs and a hotfix will be released in 6 or so hours according to the DayZ twitter.

    Lookin' forward to it!

    After every patch they reset my forum pass. I think they have done this because i called out griff the devs friend that plays on dallas 4. I killed him along time agao took his jeep and killed him a kid he then threatened to banned me because he was a devs friend. Im still on 1.7 driving arround in my bus having a wonder time.

    I just checked on the same server and the van is gone. I died. It's a bit too difficult with the zombies being borked at the moment.

    Report the admin/server. They aren't supposed to be doing that.

    i checked online and it looks like you have to buy a dedi server for this game. you cant run a private server or a personal one. it is pretty expensive too. 32 slots is 52 bucks a month. that is very high for such an old game.
