    But it isn't. You don't have to pay to play except once, after that you can pay to get stuff that can help you survive but you can find those stuff out in the open anyways.

    This game gets a lot of hate everywhere, yet the servers are usually packed. The people who don't play the game bash it everywhere, not even worth paying attention to.

    Yep, just like Minecraft did.

    Diablo you can buy weapons. Not so here, you can buy scopes though, but they can also be found ingame. I haven't spent a extra dime on the game and have had the Best sniper Rifle in the game and the Best AR in the game, as well as the best Armor, only thing I was missing was the best Backpack. Even then, you don't need that stuff to be lethal, I've taken down 2 well geared players with a pistol and I had no body armor, they both did. I made out very well that day.

    Dang it. I don't want to post anything negative, so I'll just say one thing: Taviana.

    It looks like they might get into some steam trouble if the forums have their way.

    They literally lied about the game, and had to change their steam page to compensate, which may land them in some legal trouble also. People are massively complaining to the FTC. I think it is hilarious. I cant make any definitive opinion, but it kinda looks like they rushed it out due to the success of DayZ.

    DayZ I think has the most potential of the two but now that I have put some real time into WarZ I can honestly say WarZ is more polished to me. I don't have a ton of issues like I did in DayZ. Controlling my character is so much easier and actions are more fluid.

    I dig it.

    I honestly don't see how you can say this. Sure, there aren't as many weird bugs it seems, and the gameplay movements aren't robotic, but they aren't GOOD either. The sounds, the environments, the animations, the gameplay (so much) all REEKS of blatant rushing to just get a product out there. I've honestly never understood the sour taste DayZ seems to leave in people's mouths - the most annoying bugs I've run into are dropping things and them disappearing, which is easily worked around, especially with a friend, and zombies attacking you through objects. 5 hits and I'm dead from regular zombies? I'll take my chances with getting hit through a door.

    WarZ polished? Far from it and not saying DayZ is either but the running in WarZ seems like a mario turtle mix and the movements are kid gamish. Zombies are completely dumb and act like some from stubs the zombie. Yes I know DayZ zombies are not polished as well but calling WarZ polished would be like saying a fat chick doesn't like to eat.

    How does one beat this game do you collect all the cool hats like in tf2? Or can you make your own hats to scare off zombies?

    I said it was MORE polished than DayZ TO ME.

    Key words: more, & to me.

    I didn't say the game is perfect at all. animations suck, character movement looks terrible and not fluid at all but controlling the character is way more fluid in WarZ than DayZ.

    And the game cost me $15. I don't expect much more than what I got considering it is in beta and a work in progress.

    I really don't give a fuck. I'm having fun even with all the little things that aren't done right or well. It works and I enjoy playing.

    and they aren't paying me either lol.


    I should add that when I first started playing I was really turned off by the game but after spending time in the game I've grown to like it a lot.

    I am not hating on the game as a whole but people saying its the tremendous awesome polished game is alittle far fetched. If they would have taken their time and not used the WarINC engine, I believe it would have been a big contender to DayZ but this as it sits is not good.

    Who is saying that? I hope you are not insinuating that i did.

    And maybe using the word 'polished' was a poor choice on my part. Maybe I should have said less buggy and easier to play than DayZ.

    I heard the samething about Arma animations, those were far from the best ever, I can't say WarZ has any worse to be honest. WarZ zombies are also just fine, I'm not sure what you mean by dumb, thats kind of the point of zombies, a low AI level. Either way, thats an extremely vague statement, so I'm going to break down what I feel is the most important aspect of zombies and player interaction between the games.

    In DayZ zombies are fast and zig zag (this isn't intentional, they have soldier AI as it is since it's a mod). But they move slow up hills and through buildings. So when I go to sneak into a town to loot. I don't sneak, I sprint, since sprint is infinite (not realistic) I just run through a building with an entrance and an exit and keep moving. This is the best method since it gives you the least chance of also being sniped by a player. There is no need to sneak in this game, and once you master this, really no reason to even be killing zombies.

    In WarZ, zombies are slow, but they don't slow through buildings or anything else, and they move faster than you if you aren't sprinting (and you have a sprint bar). They also have a massive aggro radius on sprint. So you actually have to sneak into town, you can't just sprint on through and loose them in a building. You actually have to break LOS with them to lose them, but you are much better off sneaking. And as mentioned, sneaking leaves you much more open to being sniped.

    It's much more tense encountering a town on WarZ than it is in DayZ because of this. DayZ I just Rambo'd it and sprinted through town like none of it even mattered. Thats the worst idea in WarZ.

    No one is saying it's tremendously awesomely polished. He said it is polished in comparison to DayZ. And you are exploding over that making it sound like he meant it's the game of the century.

    I'm going to be blunt here Brandon. The last time you posted you said you like DayZ because it's more real, and the only aspect you linked to back that up was bullet drop. I pointed out WarZ has bullet drop as well, and asked you to maybe explain a bit more of what you meant, and you never came back. Now you return saying zombies are dumb (extremely vague), and blow up on one guy and twist his words because he said WarZ is more polished than DayZ. And you list the War Inc engine as being bad, honestly I think it's doing just fine. I remember many complaining (and still do) about the Arma engine as well.

    I know you've played a lot of DayZ, but you don't have a ton of information on WarZ, and it shows. I don't see why you are going off on anyone when comparing the two games as these comparisons just seem crazy.

    I played some DayZ the other day to get some footage (it felt a bit worse than I remembered it, maybe because I had got use to playing it a lot). And I agree with the guy. DayZ/Arma has always had a clunky/unpolished feel to it. And I hope they can cure that more with the popularity of the DayZ mod bringing them more consumers. Movements are clunky, inventory is clunky, zombies are erratic and have bad mechanics (are they allergic of houses and hills?). It's a great mod, but it feels like a mod, and WarZ feels more like a actual game. Does that means it's extremely tremendously supercalafragalisticly polished? No. But it feels more polished than DayZ, and that makes sense.

    I was pretty excited to see someone else who actually said they liked the game in the thread today, figured maybe we would be getting to enough to actually have a discussion about the game between people enjoying it, but that went downhill pretty quickly, lol.

    Well despite the regular flamers in the thread, glad to see another having fun playing it. Was a patch yesterday, and a forum announcement. If you haven't got a chance to play, or haven't looked at the notes. I go over all the important stuff here.

    Interesting statistics.

    "We've got an overall approval of 93% !!! That's INSANE number. 40% just like game as is, 50% like game, but feel it needs more polishing and adding some new features ( yes - server rentals *). 5.5% played game, didn't like it and only 1.5% of respondents - some of the are guys who been recently banned - said they hate game.

    - 30% of our players played DayZ
    - 70% of our players never played Dayz
    - 5% of our players never heard about DayZ before they started looking into The War Z

    This means that most of our players are new to the "genre" of zombie survival game. They either like zombie games, or they like MMO's or they like survival games. They do not play The War Z because they've been fans of Dayz or even played it."


    http://forums.thewarz.com/showthrea...oundation-Release-features-hackers-issues-etc

    He even explains the hate we are getting in this thread lol.

    "1) Extreme DayZ fanboys. I really envy to Dayz creators for having such loyal players, yet I don't think we can do anything - yes we've announced game right before DayZ mod reached it's prime and it started losing popularity after that. And yes - The War Z and DayZ themes are similar. Heck - both projects are using same reference to other products in their titles )). So - if I'll be a Dayz fanboy - I'll be royally pissed off at The War Z. Especially since they won't be able to do anything about it, all they can do is to spread lies and false information about game. They just love to omit obvious facts and bend words."
