    Yes the movement and the animations are pretty bad. Those annoy me. But what annoys me most is the zombies. They sound like 12 year olds just gave them a bad voice over. And female and male zombies sound the same.

    That was a bug (once again, this is not a released product), that bugs gone. Some of the zombies do have weird voices, others are pretty good. I do like that they have numerous voices though, I'm pretty sure DayZ they all had the same voice since they were all male zombies. So some variety of sexes and voices is nice (always another way to look at it).

    during alpha Hardcore just meant you lost the char when it died. Right now I don't think that has changed. They are working on bug fixes and overall new content for everyone, I think real HC will be implemented later. The plan for it is that HC will actually have better loot, they will of course be gone when they die. Where as Normal right now your char can't be revived for an hour, sounds like later on though death will be more serious on Normal and that wait will be 24 hours (though you have numerous character slots, so not a huge deal).

    Patch out that fixed animation issues. https://www.facebook.com/warzmmo?fref=ts

    Also you can hit C to switch from FPS to TPS. Its both.

    They have been having server issues recently. http://forums.thewarz.com/showthread.php?72736-Server-issues-12-7-12

    WarZ is officaly moving to steam at some point but till then you can manually have it launch in steam by following this simple guide.

    http://forums.thewarz.com/showthread.php?48874-No-steam-overlay-bug-FIX

    Once you have that working add me on steam (seskotosavlaka) or search for No Delay for Days.

    If I see you on, I'll message you so we can play :D Sadly 1Kurgan1 Ufgy and whats his name all play around the time I need to sleep. Once finals are over maybe I can get a proper round in with them.

    Ok me and erocker just played for a few until something happened and I randomly died :( The running is dreadfully slow and looks like a cartoon. Melee weapons do NOTHING to zombies.

    I don't mind the walking, the maps smaller than DayZ, so still takes less time to cross. And Sprinting adds another combat tactic (granola bars refill 50% stamina, so if you keep slamming them you will be a track star, another great concept). Melee weapons do kill zombies, you have to hit them in the head silly. You have to hit zombies in the head in this game, got to take the brain out. Guns though you can hit them in the body, but for sure not with melee weapons, and even guns, better just aiming for the head unless it's a Mossberg. Everyone says it's a DayZ clone, but both those things are new ideas to the genre, and I think they both are good.

    Aim up lil higher? You definitely want to hit the head (zombies...). I personally go for the hammer or don't get caught by zombies without one. I always kill zombies in like 4-6 hits with the hammer and maybe like 20-30 with the flashlight.

    But melee weapons do work.

    Hammer is the best easy to get melee weapon, the bat is horrible. Hammer if you do pop them perfectly can kill them in 2 - 3, but like Aphex said, many times it won't end up being perfect as zombies are moving trying to get you then get knocked back from the hit, so ends up being 4 - 6 at times.

    If any of you are going to play this weekend add me on steam, think its jarvis85. We got a clan going, alot more enjoyable playing in a group that's coordinated.

    Well guys, I played for about 2 hours and came to the conclusion that I do not like the game. I went in with a open mind so I would not be bias towards the game but in the end I just felt like it was a kids zombie game. Some things I did like were the more melee options and customize able weapons that were ported from War INC. The one most important thing that attracted me to DayZ was the military aspect of the game. WarZ reminds me and of a arcade quake arena zombie match with the animations and Gfx. I am glad I got a chance to at least try it out but after the gameplay I doubt I will be playing in the future.
    1Kurgan1 says thanks.

    That's cool man, but its not much of a port if it was designed for the PC to begin with lol. Another thing to note is that Dayz is way further in development than Warz, the mod at least is. Some of the major game making features are still not yet in warz. I'd say to give the game another shot when its done but if its not your cup of tea, no one is going to force you to drink it.

    Respectable opinion and way of putting in Brandon. But I do got to ask, by military aspects what do you mean, just asking for clarification. I'm not sure if you mean moving tactically as a group and such, if that is what you mean, that is very necessarily in WarZ (watch some of my videos). But if that's not what you mean, explain a bit.

    Well DayZ was built on a Combat simulator platform which means the weapons and movements are combat orientated. Not saying they are dead accurate to military situations but a great alternative than the point and shootem up of other games like War INC that WarZ is based off of. Having to judge distance and elevation for long range shots brings a since of realism to DayZ.

    MM yes the eating and drinking portions of DayZ are not combat simulated due to it being added with the MOD of DayZ. :rolleyes:

    Zombies can see and hear so if you are inside a building running then yes they can hear you and try to come inside. The story line is not yet setup (Been through a couple of editions but nothing solid yet) but when the creator made the MOD, it used Arma 2 map chernarus. No one is saying its real at all. A completely real simulated game is just that, a game and the more in depth you go the harder the learning curve is and unenjoyable it will be to others with short attention spans such as yourself. There is currently NO zombie apocalypse occurring so making a "REAL" zombie game is impossibru

    Even when DayZ was first released as a mod it was better and more fun that WarZ but WarZ is easier so that might sway people.

    I played a handful of hours using two characters. Finding weapons is like pulling teeth. Out of my two characters I found one firearm. A pistol that fires off a group of shots in one pull. Pretty nice but it only had 13 rounds and I have yet to find more ammo.

    Finding that gun was perfect timing on my part. It was night time, there were zombies all around and I was sneaking through a parking lot when I was rushed by what I thought was a zombie. He came at me out of no-where and was WAAAY fast. I mean he was running so fast I was shocked. I fired one burst into him and he was dead. Then the noise attracted the closest zombie and I had to kill it too. Thats when i realised the first guy was a bandit and dropped some decent items (though no firearms or ammo.)

    On my other character I was chased twice. Lucky for me the second time I had binocs and saw the guy tracking me. He had some sort of rifle. I was able to run from him and keep a decent distance from him but he wouldn't stop following me. Since I had no weapons other than a flashlight I said fug it and logged off. He wasted a lot of time chasing me and poping off rounds that always missed and in the end I just logged out.

    Can't swim? wtf is that about?

    Finding food, bandages, shots, water etc is pretty easy but real weapons...almost impossible so far.

    Do I have to venture up to that military base to get anything decent? (I know that place must be camped pretty well with bandits.)

    I think this game has some potential but I'm still not sold.
