OP  6/11/13 3:00:49 AM#1

Im bit puzzled why people buy a zombie survival game that have free for all full loot and permadeath, but cry curse and call names when you shoot them?

I was yesterday playing on server with around 35/50 people and most know this server have friendly's and bandits.

So i at elektra in hills sniping with my m24 mainly bandits i try avoid survivors if posible i always give benefit if doub if there pkers or not.

Many times when people(bandits in this case) get shot start calling awefull names and cursing and cry so much they leave lol.

Ican handles this np i never say anything when i die or kill its all in the game.

WTF is going with these people?

Are they even aware that this game is hardcore survival or what?

Where they forced buy Arma and install DayZ to play but wanne play kittyonline or what?

Or maybe they bought this package and thought it was peace for all make love not war and flowers in your hair hippie time or what?

EMO's playing DayZ so they can cry alot?

Btw i never say anything i keep doing what this game ment to be kill zombies and players who are thread to survive.

Im having fun don't get me wrong i was just wonder what these people where thinking when buying Arma so they can play DayZ.

Its strange considering ARAMA III is about to go into beta or is in beta and there is a stand alone version of Dayz on its way..

Its not strange that people want to play a game that has had so much hype even if they dont realise what the game is about

The biggest question isn't why people complain when they die.

The bigger question is why people think this game is any good.


After about 20 minutes, I couldn't handle it anymore. It reminded me of my 3 hour adventure in WURM ONLINE.

Both games are actually very similar for new players. Both have extremely horrid controls, movement, and animations.


I almost fell off my chair laughing at the graphics and animations of the "zombies", lol. How people can enjoy themselves in this game, and not ANY OTHER, is beyond me. By that I mean... the fun is obviously made from the player's perspective, not the hideous gameplay or artwork. So why can't those same players play another game and give it just as much false hype?

I am sorry, but I design games for a living, and DAY Z is just hideous to me. At the very least, it is hideous for its abomination of a user interface / controls. At the most, it is hideous for the severely handicapped zombie animations.


Give me a week and $100, and I could implement a slick user interface and completely redo the zombie animations to look professional. (The money would be to buy cheap animations, which would look infinitely better than the current ones).

Of course, it isn't really the fault of DAY Z itself. It's the fault of the idiot who decided to make it a mod of
