Well, I logged in today to test out the new patches. It's been a week or two since I played and I reviewed the game.
Here is my adventure. I joined the lowest population server I could find, which was 30 players. I headed torward a town in the Northwest Region along the river. Took me about 20 minutes of running/walking to get there (Ultra boring)
As soon as I get to the town, I find a bat. (Lucky) Then I use proximity chat, "Anyone here? I'm only here to kill zombies" One guy responds, "Don't come into this town, it's mine".... So I look at his name, he is a bandit. Instead of leaving, I used prone to hide in the bushes. (This entire thing has been lasting 15 minutes so far) After 15 minutes, I notice he left the server. I spent another 10 minutes crawling around to see if the town was empty. CONFIRMED, the town was clear. There were zombies in the streets, inside..... After I go into the town, I had to clear a few zombies with my bat.
Then guess what happens? And this is why this game just doesn't work. After 45 minutes of this "adventure", I used careful scouting techniques to make judgement calls and this happens:
Two guys spawn right near me in a police station. SERVER HOPPERS and they kill me instantly with machine guns. I'm sitting there with a bat, took 45 minutes to get to where I was and then this. If you can just server hop, there are Sooooooo many ways to exploit the game. Camping gun spawns, ammo, getting away from danger.... Yet the game tries to be realistic with hunger/thirst.....
How can you "scout" an area, using binoculars and sound, if someone can just spawn near you and get the jump on you after a lot of work?
This is just one example of how the game just doesn't work.
A few more quick examples:
1.) Guns... If you find a gun, you can pay REAL MONEY for infinite ammo. If you don't have a gun, you will die. Which makes the game cash shop heavy unless you spend 50 hours looking for a gun because you will die many times trying and when you finally find a gun, you can just die and lose it again either legit, to hackers, or to server hoppers.
2.) Hackers are still there.... Wallhacks, aimbots, ect.... Every server I join, there are people saying there are hackers and they are laughing at us because they haven't been banned since day one supposedly.
3.) Respawn time of 1 hour.... Factor in everything, this game becomes unplayable with the 1 hour death lockout.
