I have had DayZ for some time now but i now feel i have been conned in to buying a game that can not live up to its expectations.
I brought this game beliving you
could spend days, weeks building camps hunting for food avoiding infected and other players as long as you didnt die it would go on and on as long as you were on the same server. But it is near on impossible to survive in this game it's gone beyond a joke.
Firstly you try to make it ralistic yet you can die from dehydration in less than a day where in real time you can survive up to 6 to 7 days without water and up to a month without food so I would have hoped that you would have aleast last three or four cycles of a day on the game without water or food.
Secondly it is near on impossible to find items in this game especially water. The weapons have improved somewhat, I went through five towns looking for an axe searched god knows how many sheds and buildings to find nothing.
Thirdly you get sick you have no idea what you are sick with you puke up you dont know why and you die from flouid loss in less than 10 min you try and replace the fluids to try and get better or give you extra time but you puke it straight back, total BST. I got a cold in my last game four hospitals nothing to cure it with and the cough and cold continued for the whole game, which was a long time sometimes the body can fight off a cold on its own why cant that be factured in? If the game is going to give me nothing to survie with when sick then what is the point. It would be nice to know what i need to find to cure my sickness at least that would give you a chance.
Fourthley what the point of puting different clothing on no matter what you wear you stay cold and wet when it rains so what is the point of me putting on a WATERPROOF jacket if im still gina get soaked or a warm pea coat and i still get cold.
Its a survial game allow me to survive. If i drink untreated water i expect to get sick if i eat rottern food i expect to get sick if i get attacket my a zombie i expect to get injured sick or die if i get shot or atttacked i expect to blead or die. But if i avoid the infected only eat pristine food and only drink clean or treated water then i expect to stay healthy. Same as if i wear a waterproof jacket THEN I EXPECT TO STAY DRY!
I'm not saying this game should be a doddle and eveything handed to you on a plate but if I cant treat myself and find anything after visiting hospitals 5 times when Im sick or know why im sick then what is the point of the game?
I was on top of a gaurd tower in my last game. Three days of logging in and out chipping away getting gear. I eat a box of PRISTINE ceral, im sick I loose fluids, I cant replace the fluids because i keep puking up, I die. Total waste of effort. Prior to that character dying the character before I die because I was attacked by wolves having put the same amount of effort in. That to me is fair enough, realistic, unfortunate but that is the name of the game. Last Character and many before it dying because the game play was utter garbage unrealistic and no chance of surving. And you give me the option of spending weeks building a base or trying to get a car running. No chance.
And all thats without the bugs that plauge the game.
TOTAL MONEY CON AND RIP OFF!
After all that said i think the game would be the best game on the market if you just gave people the tools to survive.
