Dear BI studio,
Me and my friend just started playing on xbox and DayZ is a fantastic game and a fantastic concept but the possibility to dupe items and server hopping makes the game literally unplayable and not fun.
How to Dupe items:
Drop the stuff that you want to dupe, join a random player with join game in the xbox menu and thats it.
You are finished and you have duped.
This is ruining the server economie of spawning items. For example me and my friend we are playing for 2 weeks now and the only weapons that we have found while looting is the Mosin, SG5-K, BK-133, Skorpion, all the handguns, SK59/66 and M70 tundra.
Also there are a lot of items who are becoming really rare cus probably a lot of players dupe them.
I guess you get my problem about duping now.
While you finally build you base after ours of grinding and chopping trees. Finally a place to stash your loot.
People can just server hop into your base. What does that mean:
You find an enemy base, go to different server, in different server you walk to the location of the base and you place yourself inside of the walls or what you think its the loot room or whatever. Then you login back to the server where you found the base and you are done. You just raided someone without destroying anything.
Quick fix for all of this...
Wipe every server so economy resets and make private hubs. Let the character be stuck in one server and if somebody else want to move servers then need to make another character.
Other possibility is look at for example ARK survival evolved how they figured out there way to move characters in between servers.
They had some problems with that in the start but i think the idea behind it is pretty solid.
Basically you cant bring all your items to another server and server timers (tics or whatever its called) prevent duping items.
I suggest setting a timer on the character as well. Like if you move your character it will be in the new sever for atleast 24 hours or whatever.
I hope this is getting fixed soon and i never took this much time to write a bug report for any game. That means i really like this game and it need to be fixed as soon as possible. Otherwise another cool survival game goes down the drain.
And i will stop playing.
Hopefully you got something about this report.
Hope to hear about it soon.
