    There are many people, some influential, who believe that the company who made warZ is a terrible company, and the way they have been acting, I can't disagree with them.

    I think it would be best for the company to come out of hiding a bit more, but from things like malicious interviewers and such, and blind hatred, it might be hard for them to.

    No company is inherently terrible, and in this case just made some very bad mistakes as a company. They will persevere once the torrent of hate subsides.

    If anyone has a guest pass, throw one my way.

    I should still have guest passes unless they expire. Not sure if it would be worth the bandwidth though.

    I tried DayZ tonight. I wanted to try it again because its been months since I last played. Its been since I first discovered the game and posted it on this site..then gave my thread away to another member that started a club. DayZ still sucks. I played for about 1 hour before running back to The War Z.

    When the standalone release....releases I will try it again then.


    For the record I think DayZ has the most potential but it is still using a shitty buggy engine.

    Not sure if that means 48 hours from when I got them or overall.

    I think I gave the first one to someone here, not sure. But there.

    I started have a disconnecting issue last night. Every server I joined I would walk around for a few seconds or a few minutes than get disconnected and return back the the main menu.

    I went on their website and the forum is filled with people having this issue now. Very strange but it seems I might not be playing for awhile if this doesn't get fixed soon.

    DDOS attacks. They are looking into it for a fix.

    Don't piss of people by making false claims and a bad game would have been an easier fix, but they're a bit past that point now.

    Yeah even though they pissed off the masses they still have a good game that is easy to play and a lot of fun.

    They've been interviewed and make public accouterments weekly and have addressed their mistakes. If you don't like the game no one is forcing you to buy it. Even the "false claims" that they had was up for a day (not even) on steam before it was taken down fixed and put back up to reflect the games current standing.

    Bad game is relative and no excuse to DDOS attack someone.

    MM - I do know what I am talking about, I have played the game a couple of times and gave it a good go but found it wasn't for me.

    They are both zombie games, but warZ is more polished and has more content. In what way was it not for you?

    New patch coming.

    Fixed a bug that caused players to take damage when walking down inclines.
    Fixed bug that if logged out in air - you will not be able to get back into game
    Increased the server shutdown timer to 5 min
    Optimized shadow rendering for better performance
    Optimized scene rendering for rendering
    Shadow quality on ultra settings was improved
    Other very technical rendering optimization for greater FPS
    Optimized zombie rendering
    If you have recent video card and start game for the first time, it will not default into low quality, and instead will default into appropriate quality settings depending on how powerful your video card is

    Game is going to look better and perform better :D

    I don't like the FoV, the bad mechanics, the bad textures from pre-2004, lack of any purpose, no "special" places on the map, no vehicles, glitchy reflections, shady development team, map smaller than advertised, hats, lots of hacking, seemingly juvenile player base and robotic zombies. Aside from that I play the game here and there and somewhat enjoy it. Saying the game is more polished is just not true. DayZ shares many of these problems and one could go back and forth between the shortcomings of both games. Meh, nobody is going to force someone else to like something they don't like. This game needs work. I would like to play with a group though as playing solo seems to suck quite a bit.

    I threw in more polished because I figured it would be more polished than a mod. Are the 2004 textures an exaggeration?

    Same opinions I have. Not bashing the people who play it but only voicing that the game is not what I wanted it to be.

    A mod? Its based solely on War Inc Play for free game just with zombies. There are multiple comparisions on it which in tern makes this game a mod as well.

    *Edit*

    This is a good comparison

    Well.. Not all of the textures. They've got to do something about those trees, some of the car models and other things. I mean Half Life 2 came out in 2004 and placing foliage from that game into WarZ would be a big upgrade. Draw distance is good though and to me that always adds to the beauty of a game.
