What are folks thoughts on strongholds? I'm a massive fan of this feature but I'm still a little unsure on how it'll all work well..

Strongholds - The War Z Wiki

Soon, clans and strongholds will be added. I particularly want to get a stronghold and open it up for TOG.

We had some good collections and bases on DayZ servers but they usually always ended wiped from resets rather than found or destroyed. This won't happen on strongholds as they are permanent "instance" type servers/maps.

This makes things much more secure in-game.

I thought I'd post and see what others are thinking because there is alot of interest and players in this at the moment and as far as a TOG stronghold of sorts we'll only need the one ?

Perhaps a farm/hospital base for basic gear and clan bank and maybe another one for purely PvP attack/defend type stuff?

It's all still early days but as you can tell this feature is something I'm excited about, would like to know what other thoughts are? Do you care? Would you like or use a TOG stronghold? Would you even like a sanctioned clan one or just use other members own?

played for about 3 hours the other day, asked for a refund and got it, truly a horrible game, not an MMO in the least, 40 man servers is basically pvp, I thought there was gonna be some group zombie killing with some griefers and so forth maybe some exciting pvp, to me turns out just to be a bunch of dicks waiting for newbs to leave the safe areas to kill, community for the most part on the servers I played where just plain dicks and extremely unhelpful. This is another reason why I feel MMO's are dying the communities just aren't what they used to be.

I do feel the game has potential but I've been saying that about every game for the last decade and disappointed by every single one of them.

There are already people here with stronghold months accrued by preorders. Too bad those points can't be used together:

"However, players cannot pool accrued time through preorders for server rental"
Server rental Q&A

But of course it would be a good idea to gather food and supplies! And a good place to play with zombies too!

If pricing is near to Battlefield, then it would be about 25$ a month, 70$ for 3 months. Althou they said that it depends on the player size too.

Grats! This game certainly takes some getting used to, I died a hell of a lot before I got to a stage where I was actually able to loot and get somewhere safe to log. I'm at a stage now where I have guns for a few of my toons and I've been able to drop some spare items off in the global inventory. Nice links btw, thanks.

I've seen a few youtube vids where guys are teaming up and have voip set up...I cannot wait to roll with some Toggers

They are going to raise the player cap for Colorado map to 125 as soon as the map is complete. They tols them selfs that currently game play is mindless massacre, due to there hasn't been implemented important game mechanics yet.

At the moment it's just to test and fool around.

I got one MP5-10 and one M16 last night at Delta Ranger Station. Then i got eaten by bloody zombies! I had to laugh a bit for myself... Overall the longest i've been on one run alive is 4 hours, about. Then i logged to save some stuff to GI.

Ive also been watching some streams and some 1,5 hour long videos and feel the same, i want to VOIP and play!

And it's true that the community on Global Chat is terrible. I so wish they'll soon give us the choice to close the Global Chat overall. At forum side i think the community is as always regarding Beta-stage forums.

I'll be sitting at the upper WarZ room tonight. So if you have time and are going to play, say hello and let's kill some zombies!
