Is it worth buying Dayz standalone yet or should i wait for it to mature so it's less buggy and more playable??.

You have to decide for yourself.

That's not really a question we can answer for you. It's down to how willing you are to put up with bugs, missing features, regular character wipes and not much in the way of content.

 

It'll all improve in time, but it really can't be emphasised enough that this is absolutely an Alpha, and that if you're wanting to play DayZ without interruptions or having your immersion broken, it's probably not for you right now. If you want to see what the base is like that they're going to build the game up from, it's worth a purchase.

 

EDIT: GOD DAMMIT, VIKTOR! :P

Just do it, has a ton of potential even in it's current state. Things will improve, get patched, get added. It's going to be absolutely first class when it's completed, so why not save yourself some sheckles and get it while it's cheaper. As others have said though, it's not finished yet, so don't expect it to play like a finished game at the moment.

Indeed. I would probably pick it up now, check it out, and then you'll already have it a few months down the road when things really get going.

If you have fun watching how a masterpiece is created, then yes.

If you want influence the product, then yes.

If you want save money, then yes.

 

If you get whiny fast, than no.

My opinion

 

For the current game? No

For the price? No (it will stay this price for some time)

To see the game? No (you can watch streams)

To participate in development? Possibly

 

Overall, I would not recommend it. But I think in a few weeks, it might go from "possible" to "yes" on the last one.

You hate combatlogging, ghosting and server hoppers? I would appreciate if you took the time to read my solution and gave your beans or had any form of constructive criticism.
You think banditry and KoS is a problem that needs fixing? Please read this posting

does that mean, that in a few weeks the price will be lower?

- kinda unfair for these ppl who are "paying" to test..

- a lower price would just increase more ppl especially ppl who may play very agressive...

 

the price have to be high alltime, this would prevent also ppl to cheat, because if the price is high, the risk would be also.

I believe that the price will get higher as development continuous so right now it`s cheaper than the beta and eventually released product.

I think Rocket simply ment that the price won't change (be it up or down) for a while from now.

it is so nice when a company has the luxury of being honest - the dayz mod revenue from Arma 2 sales alone allows for that.  It's great to see a company like BI be rewarded.

Its cool that you are being humble, but you are selling yourself a bit short.

 

Yesterday a few of my friends came across a couple of people in Staroye. We noticed one of them had a gun, the other a shovel and the 3rd was standing in his underwear. We approached and told them in direct chat to put their hands up and drop the gun. As soon as we did the guy with the gun unloaded his m4 into almost naked friend/hostage of his killing him instantly. We immediately fire and take him down. The guy with the shovel runs off and we let him go. I spot a fourth guy on the treeline and take a long shot at him and miss. Anyway we head to Electro and end up running into the guy I shot at. He surrenders quickly and as we cuff him we ask him a few questions. He explained to us that those were his friends and he did not mean to shoot the naked guy but he was tabbed out and when he tabbed back in he accidentally unloaded (bad luck). Anyway I get out 3 med kits and test our new prisoners blood. I then take out the blood bags and begin to fill every blood bag I have.. We then take what we need off of him and back away slowly. That is a completely different Dayz  experience then what I'm used to and also way more fun. If that does not sound like the Dayz you want to play then don't buy this yet.
