WarZ: Scam of the Year

Another interesting tidbit here with an ex-mod discussing in detail about WarZ's business model on how it was scammy to begin with.

EDIT: Found out that was all fabricated with a video about his initial posts here: http://youtu.be/Svd-p3-CURk

He was hacked and pissed off a number off, as well as backpeddling because of influence from Sergey.

Props to Valve for their response.

I hope the DayZ launch goes better than this. But if not, I always have the mod which has already made money hand over fist. And I've already put over 700 hours into it this year.

DayZ is pretty much my GOTY hands down.


Indeed! Been playing DayZ myself over the holidays, and its been years since I've been pulled into a game like this. Really hope the launch goes well, and the more annoying quirks get ironed out for the full version. WarZ reminds me a bit of Orion Dino Beatdown (http://store.steampowered.com/app/104900/), IMO, an exploitation game that was shamefully released, ripping people off.
Surprised that one wasn't pulled either.

Not installing because my PC is a toaster that plays Doom.

I can see everyone at EA facepalming themselves - "No you asshole! Too strong!"

Haha, they went on vacation right after releasing the game. It's probably their device to later say that they're done with War Z and will work on another game.

Can anyone reach their forums or website? I can't access it.

Damn,

Thought maybe it just got better; cash 'n' dash with pulling the plugs of domains. Oh what a finale that would be.

Sounds like game server issues based on some topics on the Game News subforum.

At least the graphics engine is more advanced....though that's simply something that comes with the times, I guess.

It might be a bad game, but comparing it to Big Rigs is a bit of a stretch. Big Rigs wasn't even a game.

Reskin of War Inc. which is crappy also. Features were promised years ago and were never implemented because it seems Titov is obsessed with gaining wealth.

Isn't there some other game that has been in production for years that's not DayZ or WarZ but exactly like them? I need to do some digging on GameTrailers to find it. Upon looking it up... there are now several zombie survival games.

The one I was thinking of has cars and cities that the devs showed driving through with hundreds of zombies running out.

Personally I think it would be fun once you die via zombie or not via zombie to come back as an overpowered zombie (so you don't get insta killed) and you can't respawn until you kill someone. Or if you really want to respawn as a human go for it.

Titov's "Apology Letter" to the community not only has a lot of backlash and angry users but also your typical ass-kissers.
