So, hi.

 

I'm Jeremy, rather known as TwelfthSense.

 

Like most of you, I've been playing DayZ for over a year. watching it grow and grow, more community, players, and servers.

 

i remember in late November, rocket was saying the stand alone would be released in early February, then, he got the chance to make it a full game, which, is a rather good reason to postphone.

 

It's not September, and theres been about 10 post phones already, and lots of weird stuff.

 

-they had the ak-74 in and had it balanced all out, then they took it out and started working on the m4 carbine for a balancing weapon.

-trips of members of the dev team

-remodeling ALREADY remodeled objects and players/zeds

-just now; they've taken out hte zeds again to add different ones

-and about 100 more things

 

Listen, i LOVE DayZ. I truly do. But even as a long time fan, i've lost trust in Rocket as a Developer, and i'm sure many of you have already. and i've gave up on waiting for hte game. i may buy it, but, i probably wont play it.

 

tons of promises he's made and broke them.

 

and if its taking them THIS long, they better make it seem like an actual apocolypse, cause right now, it looks like a madman filled paradise world, its too bright adn nice looking for a apocolypse. like, wheres the shady dark skies and the haze and fog, thhe wind and storms.

 

to most, this may just seem like a rant, but, let me know what ya'll think!

We should ask for all our money back!

 

If we actually crowdfunded, kickstarted or preordered anything than maybe we would have a reason to be annoyed, if we didn't keep ourself informed enough to understand why the game keeps being pushed back.

 

As it stands we didn't. :)

You think you're real smart. But you're not smart; you're dumb. Very dumb. But you've met your match in me.

^this.

 

I don't get why so many get so mad about it not being out yet. We haven't paid a single cent yet, and we also have a shiny mod to play. Be patient, the day will come grasshopper. Go find another game to take up your time.

viktor is correct, we have invested nothing into the standalone, the fact that it is taking time is no reason to moan, being a developer is hard, if your annoyed with how rocket is doing things, go make your own zombie game, call it "warz" or something, thats catchy!


DayZ is an alpha, please be patient with the development team during the games life cycle, also be sure to report all bugs and issues to the dev team by clicking on the following link: Click meh.

Hi Jeremy.

 

 


It's not September, and theres been about 10 post phones already, and lots of weird stuff.

 

There has been one missed release date, the December one. That's it.

 

 

and if its taking them THIS long, they better make it seem like an actual apocolypse, cause right now, it looks like a madman filled paradise world, its too bright adn nice looking for a apocolypse. like, wheres the shady dark skies and the haze and fog, thhe wind and storms.

 

How would a virus affect the weather? I don't get it.

To everyone who is mad about Standalone not being out yet (Just find something else to play and don't buy it when it's out)

 

If you feel that Rocket has lied to you then why in the world would you ever put 1 cent in his pocket and buy the game.


I have strong feelings about gun control. If there's a gun around, I want to be controlling it.

im not mad about it, just rather confused and a bit annoyed on everything. and there has been multiple promised releases. if oyu go watch the dev vids and blogs, you'll see.

 

and as for the weather, in rockets own words, this is pretty much a zombie apocolypse simulation. now after a apocolypse, do you expect everything do look like fiji?

What's a post phone? also i've not lost any trust in rocket as a developer. rather the opposite. he's one of my favourites out there. he doesn't try to meet deadlines if the product is not satisfactory. he's a stand up fella

yes, thats understandable. but, the 2 million player community thats still supporting him and made this all possible for him cant get annoyed? i mean ,yes, kickstarting gives say, but, wouldnt the supporters (us, the players) have the same sort of say?

yeah but what can you do and what could they do?! from what we see and hear they do all as it's humanly possible. maybe they just can't do more ressource-wise, capability-wise or the like..

we just can't do anything about it, so why would we get mad about that?

I get what you are saying about the sunny atmosphere but if you truly have been playing for over a year you probably remember weather systems that many servers did not disable when the Mod first took off. There was also this thing called night time, I know it is hard to remember with the current state of the mod but a year ago you would frequently have to deal with dusk and night time lighting and use light sources that added to the atmosphere (except the terrible flashlight, man that thing sucks).

Development of the game has dragged and at this point I am not as optimistic about even a holiday season release (November/December) so I get the frustration. Most of us want the game as soon as possible, but deep down I suspect most want a good game as soon as possible which means a little patience. As always the game will succeed or fail on merit alone so we shall see whether the wait was worth it.

NO THERE HASN'T!!

 

You go watch the dev videos and re-read the blogs, just pay a little bit more attention this time.

They have to remodel every weapon. How boring wouldn't it be with only one gun in the game.

yeah, i remember all that, but every, er, most servers now are 24/7 day no sickness and storms and spawn with dmr or m4 or something. hell, i like having to run around in the pitch black night and being scared to use a flashlight, not to mention a flare... :s

 

and as for it being a good game when it comes out. sadly, the way its looking right now sortof reminds me of warz...

thats not the problem. the problem is they took the ak-74 out COMPLETELY then added in the m4 as a base gun instead of using a gun that was already ingame

does this really matter? and if yes...why?

 

sometimes it is more plausible, more practicable and yes sometimes even easier to do things from "scratch".

 I still don't get it. People turning into zombies would not affect the weather in any way.

 

Also, it doesn't look like Fiji. It looks like a forested coastal area somewhere in Europe.
