    There´s been alot of talk about this game lately, so not so much a sleeper hit since arma 3 will feature a full dayz mod also made by the original guy, and they gave him a crew this time.

    But yeah, looks awesome indeed, sadly i dont have arma 2 though :)

    It also has way more bugs and is harder to install than most standalone games. But yea it is fun.

    I've had my eye on it for a couple months now, and as soon as it went 40% off through Steam, I bought it.

    In my experience, it is just a step above unplayable. I heard that there were a lot of bugs, but most of the time it takes 20 minutes just to get connected to a server. On top of that, 99% of the buildings are useless and can not be entered. Running from a zombie is more annoying, than it is scary. 

    While I was really interested in a brutal, 'realistic', zombie survival game, this just doesn't work at all for me. Which makes me sad.  At least it's an interesting concept.

    If you like DAYZ you like like WARZ when it comes out, both started delevopment around the same time the difference is that WARZ aims to be an MMO but wil perma-death full loot on harcore servers and character lock on normal servers.

    Because flying a Minmatar ship is like going down a flight of stairs on an office chair while firing an Uzi.

    I thought the creator is going for a standalone version:

    BTW.  I am curious about the upcoming War Z. It sounds like a cheap rip-off.

    Been playing the same time as you and love it as much but could never survive that long, I play solo and often manage to wander in to the wrong place and my life ends, been hunting for a tent for weeks now, still no luck.

    That's sad :( I play in a group with around 9 (real life) friends on a daily basis. We have 6 tents, 2 quads, a bicycle, a truck and a bus. So we're all pretty scary someone will find our secret basecamp!

    Once upon a time, Counter-Strike was just a game that came free with half life. Mod's have a way of ourgrowing the original game it was intended for :)

    You probably hid it off the map like all the other exploiters
