Quick true story (in game lol)

I was running from zombies and ended up gathering like 7 of em. I saw a dude running just in front of me and thought he could help me out.

I hid in a building to try and lose the zombies which seemed to work but it only worked because the zombies ended up switching aggro on the dude.

So I'm waiting inside the post office for a bit as I hear lots of zombies outside but can't actually see anything. Then out of nowhere the dude walks in there bringing the whole lot with him! We both hide behind the the bench in the post office and since the zombies can't jump were safe but trapped.

Freshly spawned, armed with nothing but my new found friend's flashlight and bleeding all over the place I tell the dude to try and kill a few with the flashlight. He starts bashing away a bit never actually responding to anything I say. I then ask him if he wants to give me the flashlight so I can try? He doesn't say anything. After a short while of not getting anywhere, he too begins to bleed. He then walks over to me, stares at me for a few seconds and gives me one good wack with the flashlight. I die.

The situation never quite works out the way you think it will lol.

I read a lot of stuff about DayZ and WarZ and i´m thinking of buying one of them. But DayZ isn´t a "game" is a mod and WarZ is in beta or alpha...
for the people who played one of them or both which i should buy?
Ultimately if you can wait, then wait. Otherwise there are plenty of varying views, screenshots and videos of both to come to some sort of quick decisions yourself but otherwise you probably should find both equally satisfying.
You could get annoyed by player induced deaths on either as the sheer act of dying by some other dude is just "ARGGHHHH!" enraging. Could simply be a matter of what you end up playing first. Depends on how you as a person see things. Again I must emphasize on how neither one is complete by any means. Its just a rough sketch out of the concepts right now.

I find having to beat zombies up to 20 times with a bat or a hammer rather annoying. :ohwell:

Try aiming a bit higher and try a hammer. Now that I think about it I didn't pick up a melee weapon unless it was a hammer.

Yeah, once in a while I'll kill one in about 6-8 hits.

Frustrating part can be when they flail in submission form a hit (you lose their head) and you have to quickly adjust your aim or just miss. Usually adds to the time it takes to kill them.

Try hitting them in the head with every single swing. That should drop them sometimes in 2 swings, but at most hopefully 6-7 swings. They seem to take very reduced damage to the body.

You know what just crossed my mind?

What if you could build certain buildings based on the amount of people in a clan? Like lets say if you have 6 people in a clan you could build a small fort and then if you have 12 an even bigger fort! Just a principle idea added to the fact you can already build fences on your own.

Had a few things I was curious about, so I made a Mythbuster series for WarZ and am going to try solving my questions and others (lets hear them if you got them)

Well we will be able to build buildings as far as I know in our Strongholds, so it is possible.

http://account.thewarz.com/getforumbadge.php Enter that information to link your account to the forums, you will then have access. Ill pm my skype/steam to ya, i usually play late night though.

More map may solve it but with more map i'm sure they will increase player count, server rentals on 30th/1st will solve this though. Then bandit,bounty system will go even further. I love playing at night, the atmosphere is so incredible.

So after playing a while I suppose the one thing I like about this game is exploring around.. That's about it. The graphics are quite muddy and sometimes it's rather hard to spot another player that is well within viewing distance. Speaking of players, most of the players I've encountered have been complete a$$holes. Putting this one down for a while. Not very good.

I don't even find the exploring fun to be honest, probably because of the "muddy" graphics as you describe them. While DayZ got boring after a while, it had nice and varied scenery where War Z is pretty much all the same to me and it gets boring real quick.

I don't really mind the graphics to be honest. Yes it can be hard to see other players even within 100 yards, but so far im still having a bunch of fun with this game.

I have been having some great experiences in this game. I mean its not like DayZ, but at the same time it's not worse, just different experience, environment, and overall feeling for me. What can bother me is the space between trees the lack of lush forest and a good amount of cover outside of towns. It really sucks getting into any kind of enemy engagement and if their isn't a rock or a nearby redwood monster tree your basically a deer in the headlights.

Some things i have come across so far are mostly random moments, like as Jarvis was leaving a town i stayed behind to hammer out some zombies and shake them for some cash. after about my 8th zombie put down in the middle of this little town im in the middle of bashing this Farmer Zombie's brains in Jarvis yells out, "there's a guy to your left watch out!" me at first thinking he was talking about another zombie i continue with my righteous work. He then yells again "He's coming for you on your left!" just as he finishes that i hear a loud bang to my left a shower of pellets litter my screen. "Oh shit!" i quickly dispatch the zombie with my last swing as i'm being receiving his first volley, i quickly switch to my M16 fully auto, whip to my left and see a man about 30 feet from me with a shotgun in hand and wearing a scary ass white skull mask. I quickly lay into him letting the gun do the work as i tear into him putting round after round through my new best friend. Loot ends up just showering the ground around him as he falls. I just sat there screaming at Jarvis, "Thanks for the f***ing heads up, he just about blew my face off." I was truly grateful to have somebody watching my back that day. i patch myself up pop some pain pills and loot the poor bastard taking everything just to spite him. Was a good day, returned to a Safe Zone to turn in today's good work. Had a blast met new people, put some down, but overall had a great time playing WarZ.

Its not always the game that makes it for me, but the fun i had with friends, and the stories i can take from it. Sure it has its issues but for what was paid for it and how much i have already gotten out of it, it's a good buy for me.

P.S. I have more stories with WarZ if you would like to hear them from me, that or tell me to stop the walls of text.

The games about finding a cool hat and eating food you run from one place to the other and your out of food. The gun spawns don't even make sense as you can find a m4 inside of a dumpster 2 mins out of spawn. Game feels like a bad Saints Row 2 mod with ez mode zombies that cant attack you if you hold down the mouse.

Great session last night with Jarvis and Ufgy20.

Got held up on the 4th floor of a School at Campos City. Looking outside I spotted a team of 4 decently armed people just outside. As I attempt to spy on them one of them spots me and alerts his buddies and soon they all turn at me. Now aware of each others locations I panic and let Jarvis and Ufgy20 know about my situation who they themselves were about 5 minutes walking distance from me.

I hide on the floor below in one of the rooms and 2 minutes later I hear the sounds of many curious footsteps walking around in the building. I continue to hide hoping that they don't find me, armed with my shotgun in case they do. 2 more minutes of solid waiting pass (which felt like hours) as I keep in touch with J and U whilst they make their way to the school when one of the dudes pops in! I quickly take him down knowing very well of others, manage to shoot a second guy but he takes the better shot in the frenzy and kills me. Moments later J and U arrive. Jarvis manages to take one of them down but dies in the effort while Ufgy20 survives. By this time there collects tons of loot from the dead bodies of me and the others. Me and Jarvis log back in with fresh characters make our way back (I believe by this point Ufgy20 ends up scaring the rest off), we pick up as much loot as we can and head to a settlement.

Fun rewarding session, looking forward to more.

I've played at least 300 hours of DayZ and yes I like it. It has bugs, but lots are easily worked around if you know what you're doing and the experience outweighs them. After 200 hours or so Chernaurus got boring as hell, and Lingor with a 600+ vehicle server revived the game for me. I got bored of that and have started trying newer maps out...kind of waiting for the standalone before I get back into it. DayZ Alpha is MUCH better than War Z, regardless of bugs.
