24 hour lock out is pretty stupid honestly. If people want to play normal and do not want to even bother with hardcroe servers whats the issue? Lately, we've been forcing this "hardcore" style of gameplay on people. I mean sure you had your carebear 12 year old releases like GW2... but I think that lockout is dumb.

So if some dude just walks by and wants to force me to not play for a day he'll just shoot me up. If thats the case, I'll just play hardcore and lose my loot.

^Complaing about the lockout is stupid as it is PART OF THE GAME, don't like it?  Go play Tetris.

 

How about instead of trying to change a unique game and being little care bears, you go play another game, there is LITERALLY hundreds of thousands to choose from, a lot of them are perfect for the carebears in this thread, bye now.

Name another online survival game that falls under the categorty of onlinezombie survival horror.  You can't, and there are a lot more than just hardcore PvP'ers that actually want to play this game.  Calling people stupid for wanting a game that suits their playstyle is stupid in itself.  That is the exact type of mentality that makes a bad gaming community.  

 

The lockout is actually set to 1 hour.  It is not working at all to prevent meaningless PK'ing.

Woaw, awesome!! 24hour lock out :D At least all those casuals will be not there.

Sadly I think it will lead to hardly anyone being there . This game just needs different server options to be successful . As loads of people are saying on the war z  facebook page . Hopefully someone is listening .

Supposedly private servers will fix this.  If you own a private server and you screen your applicants based on the rules of the server and what they are looking for, it seems like a really good option for the players.  However, Hammerpoint or whatever they are called are seemingly trying to block this.  It appears that they are afraid of private servers becoming farms for the public servers.  They also seem to want to limit to high end loot from the private servers, so that you can't actually obtain them unless on a public server.

 

Many people are suggesting a separate global inventory for private servers.  Also, to track items based on where they were obtained.  So if you were to take a character to a private server, found some loot, then switched to a public server, those items would not carry over.  It seems like a relatively easy fix, but maybe it's not.  Or maybe the designers just don't know how to do it.

 Meaningless killing???? Wehn i hear that i am laughing so much :) What you except guys in one survival mmofps? Solving puzzle or what?  War Z is about killing and surviving. I can see that my son enjoying this game very much . Guys if you are to long in  ''old people games'' like eq,gw,wow  you need time to adopt because it is different style of playing. Same was with me in PlanetSide 2, first i was killed every few seconds and score was about 20-80 in favor of my death but after week i got  400 -380. You need to gain reflexes to survive. There is not much of survival mmofps on the market and just leave this game to hardcore pvp players. I know that most of you want to be part of that comunity but for most of you guys it is just to hard, leave it and find some other shooter where you get instant respawn

The problem is that these people DON'T want to play this game. They want to play the game that LOOKS exactly like this game, but suits THEIR suited playstyle / difficulty level.

 

I'd like to play Mario brothers with all the f**cking annoying Ghosts removed, but I doubt Nintendo will comply. 

 

If you don't like an aspect of a game, find another, or wait for a similar one which suits your preferred playstyle more. Don't try get the game changed for those of us who enjoy it just as it is, thankyou.

Just try accept that some of us don't want meaningless, consequence free PvP. Saying that a game will not survive with harsh consequences for death is simply wrong, as can be shown by Eve: Online, which can be very harsh at times yet maintains a large playerbase.

 

-Edit- Argh, sorry!! Didn't mean to dig up an old thread the American date format threw me and I thought this thread was more current. Apologies! :]

I have lost all hope for this game

5 characters 24 hours deaths a newbie with nothing gets killed 5 times then what?

The developers are morons they need to listen to what I have said and design the game there is no reason to have 5 minute respawn timers or hardcore mode it serves no purpose unless its a hardcore only server and there is a difference between normal and hardcore.

In addition spawn timers should be like 30 seconds and it should spawn u somewhere else.

 

Normal kills HardCore = Perma Death

Hard Core kills normal no Perma Death?

Why are you commenting on old facts? Play the fucking game or at least do your due diligence instead of spouting shit. Its a 1 hour lock-out first of all. Second of all, delete your character and make a new one if you don't want to wait around or play hardcore. 30 Second spawn timers? That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard, whats the fucking point of this game if you just go balls out like its call of duty. The difference between hardcore and normal is that you get to keep your experience and skill tree (which isn't implemented yet, the exp is however) on normal.
