It is an exploit due to the global server location system.

Player is engaged in combat, he takes note of the enemy players location, disconnects, joins another server relocates behind enemy player, rejoins original server and kills the player from behind.

Those of GAF that play DayZ, what is your opinion on The War Z? If you haven't heard of it, http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/07/...=social&page=1 is the link that talks about it. I've always wanted to play DayZ once I got a good gaming rig, but I might hold out and just go to that, I'm not sure =/

In the day though theres a new addition, basically the game has a 'probability' of you being randomly seen. Its really not beneficial to sneak now; as no matter how careful you are, a random zombie might chase you and hit you when you don't expect it. I mostly run everywhere now.

Am hoping they remove it from the game; or replace it with Zombies moving towards you - not chasing, just changing direction - adding some difficulty.

Atm its a bit game breaking, but it is alpha and it is a recent addition.

I hope so. Not nearly as fun when you can be seen regardless of distance and stealth. :\

I preferred it the way it was before that change.

I was watching someone go on a tear through Elektro. There were a couple of times I was going to take a shot at him, but realized it was better for me (only my crossbow) to hold off and see if he got any closer to my hiding spot. He moved on, but he took out 2-3 people in a span of about 15 minutes. Wonder if it was the same guy.

MMO with Quests versus DayZ. Completely different. Right now DayZ incorporates the experience of being in the aftermath of some kind of apocalypse. That MMO sounds entirely like every other Zombie game around, throw you into a mess of zombies with a group of survivors with a pre-defined goal. That's fun, but it's not what is so attractive about DayZ.

killed a cow and was cooking the steaks. apparently the fire was hungry because it ate 4 of my 8 steaks. They just vanished into thin air. Odd.

Luckily the 4 I still had were enough to get me to 12000 blood

Exploit time.

When you cook a steak, you can press the "Cook Meat" again. You can do it twice per steak. That means that each steak in your inventory can be used twice.

There's a new game called the War Z coming out sometime this year. It seems pretty similar to DayZ.

IGN needs a better editor damn. Do they even proofread these things?

So I just spawned in, and for some reason I'm on the southern coast now instead of being near Stary. It said day 0 coming in to the match but I still have all my gear. Weird.

And now begins the long trek.

Edit: and kicked.

And back-ish.

Stay away from Elektro - 2 bandits, killing everything they see and putting stuff in their full backpacks to make it 'bug out' of the game.

Unlikely. If they just want to destroy loot they can't carry all they have to do is hide the bodies.

If they're destroying loot that is in a spawn point, on the other hand, they're farming and actually doing everybody else a favor by getting rid of the useless drops so real loot can spawn.

Good to see that eu-dayz is not completely dead. I was worried at first when I didn't see anyone on Mumble.

Orgun! I have wondered where you and the others went. I took a break and when I came back to DayZ all of you were gone. I've got a irl friend hooked on the game and we've been playing it together for about a week now. I'm trying to get a second one to join too. :)

wolfmat: Ok, the game will still be around for you when you have the time again. And your character will still be left too, I was gone for 3-4 weeks and my old character was still alive and well.

McBradders: Bonjour! What is wrong with it?

JBurton: I have sent you a friend request on steam.

Right well - this. Not sure if this is helpful to anyone, seeing as their killing the entire population whilst also taking any new spawned loot for themselves.

Just had one of the best scavenging runs I've had in Elektro (while dodging a group of marauders before the server reset).

Ended up walking away with a Canteen, Czech Pack, Map, Compass, Watch, Shotgun, Pistol, Hatchet, Hunting Knife, Matches, and a crap ton of bandages all in the matter of about half an hour. I'm tempted to go hole up in the woods for a while while I decide what I want to do with all this stuff.

Edit - Maybe I should do a Gaf cookout. ;)

I tried to see about helping someone a bit earlier who I thought was being chased by zombies. Ended up paying for it with a rifle blast to my back while I was trying to run away from them after I realized that there was probably a misunderstanding about my intentions. Easy come, easy go. ;)

Yeah, I NEED to get back on. Between family and backlog (and frustration from Hackers) Ive been away. But I miss the deep talking MOB, the team killing Gibs, the deep disappointment of getting murders after days of collecting things.

Yep. This weekend for sho

I have a collection of rifles for those I travel with the next time I see some gaffers.

Tonight featured at least twenty people being killed while battling for Cherno. Still not compelled to venture northward.

Arma 2 combined operations on steam is really cheap right now. Just buy it there dayz works just fine with that version.

But make sure you buy the combined operations pack since dayz requires it.

Fun fact, if you run towards a player with 13 zombies chasing you, don't expect him to help you :<
