DayZ gang forces players into life or death duel

Destructoid writes- "The new crop of open-world titles, like Day Z, give interesting insight into the people who play games. Take this roving gang of players as an example, who have encountered two people wearing the same color jacket and determine that they should fight to the death for the privilege of being allowed to continue to wear it. Here they are, playing a game in which exerting power over others violently seems to be the primary method of advancement, and instead use that power to create amusement."

two men enter, one man leaves.

One man leaves without any honour! Was hilarious to watch though.

Oh man, this needs to come out on consoles!

This game when released fully will be a troll fest, i can imagine there will be a lot of unhappy ppl when they get it in 2015. Just imagine what it will be like , there will be big groups of youtube trollers hiding in towers near main towns sniping every new player that enters the game.

I love the idea of the game, i also want to play it but the griefing will be astronomical.

Septic1595d ago

Lol this game is ALL ABOUT griefing. Have you noticed how the best videos in the game actually center around griefing.

Call me evil but this game resonates with the troll-ier side in me.

MRMagoo1231595d ago

I have to disagree , the game isnt about griefing its about surviving, ppl just run around killing ppl just because they can. The game is more about getting a community together like the walking dead series and trying to make it through the worst of it together not about making other ppls days a misery.

"The game is more about getting a community together like the walking dead series and trying to make it through the worst of it together not about making other ppls days a misery."

Yeah but even the Walking Dead has its own griefers (The Governor). In fact, the griefers in there are more of a threat than the walkers are.

Also, Day Z's undead aren't really up to standard and wouldn't really pose a strong enough threat demanding players to form a community. I understand your point though, but the game, more than the community, won't allow that kind of vision you have for the game. It is a mod at the end of the day to be fair.

State of Decay online might do that though.

could they not have just quit out of the server?

kydrice1595d ago

If you want to play like that then why not just quit out of every single multiplayer game when someone tries to shoot at you? The fun is in the experience that other players put others in. If you just want to run around and shoot people willy nilly then there's far better games to play.

ninjagoat1595d ago

I've played a lot off stand alone and very few quit. People are genuinely in it for the lolz.

TheSaint1595d ago

I would've refused, I'm not fighting for their pleasure. I'd rather take a bullet to the head.

Thatguy-3101595d ago

I died after seeing the guy run. It's hilarious on how serious shit gets which makes it more enjoyable. I hope they bring it to the ps4.

jackanderson19851595d ago

few and far between... the servers currently can't handle high volumes of zombies so they're pretty rare to run into

kydrice1595d ago

IMO, this game was never really about the zombies, even in the mod version, they were more of an annoyance. I'm hoping they get them right in the stand alone because I want them to be more of a factor.
