    Hard to make things different when you will have to file for bankruptcy.

    I didn't say that I believe him or I agree, I only said what he posted, just to add on-topic-info to the thread, nothing more.

    I wish they can learn from their mistakes and things will get better in the future or with their next game, but as far as my subjective personal opinion goes about WarZ, I think it's utterly crap (I only played about 6-7 hours tho).

    The WarZ has introduced a new rock bottom and worst case scenario for a developer. This could have quite possibly ruined the careers of many of the employees.

    Had they been more patient and truthful, the game would have been a raging success.

    War Z rocks. I've been putting all of my game time into this one title. I don't know whats going to happen with the game in the future but right now I'm playing it every chance I get and enjoying it.

    I'm not too worried about the game failing. The servers are so packed full with thousands of players at any given time over russia, europe, and the americas that I have no doubt in my mind that the game will be around for a long time. And if it fails; well I'll be getting my $15 worth either way.

    Server populations seem to be doing just fine, it seems to be everyone not playing the game thats saying things like "rock bottom". I mean if the outlook for the game was so bad, and it was hated so much, then I guess I'm surprised that my small Yt channel is gaining like 20 subs every single day, and I mostly specialize in WarZ uploads. Get new comments every day saying the videos are great, games fun, and such.

    And about that last part, it seems to be doing just fine. The biggest thing is the community screaming the games a clone, and most of them are people who don't play it.

    When did they say those exact words, or anything close to it? Hit me with some links.

    I still kinda like this game anyways. Much better since the last patch but it still needs a lot of work. I really don't see why people who haven't even tried this game bother to comment... Other than the fact that the developer and the media give plenty to comment about.

    He didn't mean it tho and it was "just a bad choice of words" according to his press representative, who commented on this a little later.

    For the game being such a failure and horrible, it's back on Steam now. I'm not sure if you can buy it there yet, but if you own it you can redeem your keys on there.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/226700/
    Redeem keys here - https://account.thewarz.com/account/getsteamkey.php

    He was raging about spawn campers, he's a person too, we hold people to high standards, I've watched many here rage over just as small of a thing :p And I agree erocker, lots comment who haven't played, but seems more are joining this thread who have played and are liking it.

    That wouldn't bother me either. Spawn campers are faggots. Though I would have just said "gay".

    Because some of us like it. :rolleyes:


    When DayZ standalone releases I will play that too.



    Last night I was able to get some sweet sweet revenge. I logged onto US150 last night and as soon as I loaded into the map I was shot dead. I only had a few guns on that character so I figured no real loss. I loaded into the same server again with a different character (in the same location on the map) and I was able to run about 10 feet before I was gunned down...the guy was so damn far away that I could just begin to see him running towards my down character before the timer expired. Same damn guy.

    So I logged in again with another character, same server, same location (yes I keep all my characters in the same area but in different spots ;)) and sure enough I spin around and see a guy running towards me. I run away and he shoots me through the mountain top. WTF I'm dead again and its the same damn guy!!

    So Now I'm pissed. I grab another character, log into a different server and run myself further out around the same area. i grab my sniper rifle, log out and then load into US150. I check the tab and sure enough the guy is still on the server. I get close to the area he is stalking and setup for the kill. Sure enough like he has radar; I see him exit the town and run towards my position; even though I'm in a bush beside/behind a tree. Well I started to fire my sniper rifle (I forget the name something blaze) and I drop him.


    Total satisfaction. And he dropped a LOAD of guns. Guns I haven't even seen in the game yet...night vision goggles, weapon upgrades, ammo. It was the mother load. I let him know who i was, took all his shit and logged.


    :D

    I wouldn't invest too much time in this game. The reason why people are so attracted to it is because the idea is great.

    The very minute that DayZ comes out, this game will be obsolete.

    I guess we should expect that when we have a 14 year old as an executive producer.

    The game can't leave steam because some people bought it there. But it will take some serious work to get it back for SALE on steam.

    Here's some more essential information on the state of WarZ. If it doesn't grant you a chuckle then you are probably dead

    Sure it can, they were offering full refunds to everyone that wanted one. It was taken off Steam, and is now back.

    The store page had been removed, only people who still had anything remaining of it were those that decided not to get a refund on it. And since you are the one who broke then news, I'll just leave this quote here (since it's contradictory).

    What? I think you have it backwards. The WarZ is a standalone game, DayZ was a mod for Arma II. DayZ is being made into its own game by the modder who made it with a full team under him (I believe), where as The WarZ is already out and was made by the people who made one of the greatest video games in human history.
