Tried it and the graphics were too crap for me to continue....

...and the interface is beyond wonky.

It definitely has its quirks. The graphics are MUCH improved from when it was first released. The interface still has some bugs (though I haven't played it in 2-3 patches now). But it is for the most part playable.

 

There are the rare times where a glitch happens and you die, but the kills usually make up for it! It is probably the only game I have played that gave me that rush you get in solo PVP in EVE. Kills are extremely fulfilling and I have had some great stories come out of the game.

I really want to like it, I am a big Walking Dead fan. But I had a lot of trouble with it in general and I got this last Standalone release.

I never saw anyone else, saw few zombies and generally just walked about.

Probably got a bad server.

It is definitely a bit difficult to get into initially...though you are playing EVE!

 

The first time I played I logged into a night time server with nothing but a flash light. I got raped by zombies and didn't touch the game for a month. There are some interactive maps that you can google, read a street sign and then navigate your way to a big city on a populated server and you'll find yourself shot dead in no time!

 

Personally, the worst part of the game is currently travel. I hate running everywhere and EVENTUALLY that is supposed to be fixed with the addition of vehicles and bicycles. To counter that, I don't spend too much time running to military bases to get great gear because it takes a lot of extra time and your deaths are a lot more annoying.

 

You can find crappy civilian firearms or even an axe and kill somebody who took all of the time to collect the good gear for you. If you get murdered and you had only spent 5 minutes picking up an axe and charging them it's not much of a loss.

Unsurprisingly my steam id is Khador Vess.

 

If you want to play some, hit me up on steam.

Played it yesterday with a mate. Came across someone and we were determined to be nice this time. He punched my mate so I tried to shoot him. He punched me in the face through my welding mask (which I naively thought would protect me from such shenanigans) and knocked me out, took my gun then shot us both with it. No idea how we got out of that alive but now the grey mist has descended and the struggle for survival continues.

 

Has anyone noticed some seriously generous spawn points since the latest patch?

I've noticed more server have persistence turned on now, so loot caches tend to be quite generous if its a quiet server.

This one is more then generous an it has on average 15-20 people on it whenever i log in.

 

*for some reason i cant add the picture? I'll upload it somewhere else the forum doesn't seem to like Google, or I'm being a moron? (which isn't beyond the realms of possibility)

If enough people are Interested we can work on our own server together, when they allow player ran servers It will be easier to moderate and enjoy as a group, plus It keeps us RvB'ers In house

I wouldn't recommend putting me on a server with anyone.  I'm not the safest of people to be around at the best of times.

 

As an example: My brother and i operate a NPSI policy.   I was hiding in a tree-line covering him.  After killing three guys I see a guy and put a bullet in his head thinking he was hostile number four.  As it turns out my brother neglected to tell me he was leaving cover and as I didn't want to miss the shot so took it without confirming.

 

Later that day he and our friend decided to kill me and loot my body and that day turned into a FFA... fun times.

Ryan, we had a small group that ran modded Dayz servers, we Increased the Z spawn so that over 1000 zombies spawned at the Northwest airfield, we then spawned in a weapon crate and an armoured troop transport on the other side of the airfield, we then attempted to get from one end to the other......I'm sure you can guess the end result
