WarZ on Steam! Wow...did not expect that so quickly...apparently we should receive a key shortly that will allow us to register and run it through Steam

I decided to give the game another shot today as I hadn't touched it in ages. Nice to see some performance improvements, but the community is the worst. This is what I experienced.

Made a character, joined a server. Walked for a few minutes, shortly after leaving the safe zone I was shot in the back.

Made another character, joined a different server. Walked for a few minutes, shortly after leaving the safe zone I was shot in the back, again.

Tried a few more times, same thing happened. Now every character slot is filled with a dead character and I can't play for another 40 minutes unless I delete one, which isn't an issue now but would be with a more experienced one I imagine.

Is that all their is to this game? Just a handful of spawn points all camped by bandits?

Is WarZ worth getting? I played DayZ quite a bit but got bored with all the PvP and stopped playing for a while - not sure whether to go with WarZ or not.

Normally no, I've never experienced that. There are plenty of people that like to do the bandit thing but I tend to stick to lower pop servers and generally don't have too many problems with them.

For the price, absolutely. It is still quite buggy and doesn't have all of it's features yet but I think that it has a good future. They are rushing it out the door to beat DayZ standalone and get some Christmas sales, so at this stage it is still a little rough. It is similar to DayZ but more arcadey and more enjoyable in my opinion, with lots of cool stuff planned.

Thanks Brew - I've been following it for a while but stopped short of investing time/money in the beta or alpha or whatever was running at the time. I might give it a go because you're right...pretty cheap at the moment.

Now it's 9.89 on Steam.

Though I do regret paying the full wack a month or so ago, only as I spread my playing too thin across mulitiple betas/alphas and WarZ didn't capture my enthusiasm straight away (missing a fair amount of the content and did run into the spawn camper problem even on lower pop servers.. but not played enough to have a real opinion.)

Need more time to chill and play games

I released another WarZ vid today talking a little bit about play style, the Steam launch and some other possible additions in the future. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think. Cheers.

Liking the vids Brewski

How much of a time commitment for the game for some satisfactory gameplay? Say in comparison to DayZ? Is there a lot of scoping out places from afar, sneaking through cover for a slow approach, jumping at every sound? Or is there more of freely wandering the landscape, looking at and finding cool stuff, and hoping not to get shot by dirty campers? Can i play for an hour or two once or twice a week and get some varied gameplay?

Mind you at the current price it's probably worth a try/experimenting.

I probably only average a few hours a week atm but it's with my bro, so we can afford to be less cautious and more daring. I find that u need to be very careful in cities but in rural areas you don't have too much to worry about. With the recent increase in zombie numbers, they are now more of a concern than the bandits.

And thanks for the comment
