CRAVE: "There's not a lot of player-killing in this PvP mode, and I don't like it one bit."
I prefer it this way. Last night I was robbed of some seriously good loot; and a lot of it.
I agree, I definitely prefer it this way as well. I try to typically be peaceful but there's certain moments when people aggravate me and I have to hunt them down. For example, the other day my friend and I had probably one of the most intense moments I've ever experienced on an online video game. We were entirely out of med-kits and ammo, running towards the safe house in the Dark Zone to get some ammo and then make our way to the nearest extraction zone because I had a pretty high quality vest. Then a swarm of higher level NPCs surrounded us and killed us because we didn't have any ammo and were trapped. Then, after we died, I saw someone take the vest I was trying to extract. Earlier, that same guy killed me when I was trying to help him kill some other agents who were Rogue, so I had a strong dislike towards this guy already... him picking up that vest made it worse. So after we spawned, my friend and I hunted down that guy, killed him and his friend who he was with and took back my vest. We were right by the respawn zone so they kept coming back trying to kill us, but they were about two levels lower than us both and our gear was obviously better so they stood no chance. There was a manhunt on my head after we killed them a few times, so we set an extraction on the other side to get away and we did. Definitely the best experience I've had in the DZ so far.
that sounds fun? i say dont go in the dark zone if you CANT HANDLE LOSING SOME PIXELS.
Haha cool story, Yeah we have intense moments like that all the time. We normally run in 2 groups of 4 in the DZ. However, earlier on I was running with 4 of my friends and we let these 2 guys in our "group" and we played with them for about 5 minutes. and when we got to the extraction they double teamed each one of us and killed us. "We were in position around the extraction so we were literally by ourselves in a sense". It was bad. After that we vowed to never let anyone in the group. The people we go in with is all that will be in the group haha. Now when we see someone if they try to join we tell them they can't and to keep it moving or die. Well when you have 8 people with you it makes them think twice about trying to steal your loot haha.
Peace is a lie. I would enjoy nothing more than grouping with you then killing you and taking your loot. But we set up ambushes . We will see you go in then we will chill and watch TV and smoke dabs, then when you are done, we put you down. DARKSIDE
Going rogue is the point of DZ. You might not like it but this is not how it's supposed to work. There is no difference with pve besides you get to see random players with 0 purpose.
Problem is, there's no real point to going rogue atm. The rewards are crap compared to what you can lose and the timer for killing a bunch of people is insanely high. They also made it so you can't change zones when you go rogue, so you can't evade people easily (which lets people escape easily to another zone that you can't go to). You might get some good loot (purples drop like candy and people are looking for HE gear really), but you might die and lose a bunch of keys, cash, xp, and any loot you have. Unless they buff rewards for going rogue, you'll see people not wanting to fight others.
Well the point of the Dark Zone is to retrieve loot. Thing is. If you go off shooting people for their own loot, you'll be hunted down. I've noticed a trend of people shooting people at the extraction point that don't have contaminated items. Makes sense, since if you don't have any items to extract, you don't belong there. And are most likely waiting to get the drop on someone who does.
Had a player attempt to steal my loot, unlucky for him he was level 10 and me and 3 of my friends were all level 23 (We were passing by the lower level areas :-b)
Last night, i killed two rouge agents.
The first level grouping of the DZ is 1 to 14 (and you only gain rank in the DZ, not levels), and then broken up by 5s till the 30 only bracket. Unless that was a typo and you meant 13, not likely you were 13 levels higher than him.
It could of been a level 10 that switched brackets to join one of their friends who was in that 20-24 bracket he was in.
I can't tell if this is satire or the author is whining about not being able to go rogue on their own terms. OT Good. I'd rather players mind their own business so when harder experiences are released instead of "you shot me in the DZ I'm not helping you" it's "wanna join?"
I highly disagree. the Dark Zone seems to be highly subjective. One player never gets PK'd, another player gets it every single time they enter.
There is no world in which a lack of trolls is bad.
You just can't please some people I like the way they did it, even in chaos you of to have some kind of order nothing would get done if everyone start trolling other players
It's because all the trolls are playing DayZ and H1Z1 thankfully.
I enjoy being a bad guy and trying to steal loot. The rest of the game is so repetitive, it adds a nice fun little element to it. It's exciting to be marked as rogue and try to escape. My friends and I just spent some time in the dark zone killing people and stealing their loot and we had a blast. To the people who don't like it, sorry? I guess?
Oh yeah, it's totally fun killing people and stealing the stuff they worked to get instead of working to get it yourself. I'm sure you're such a joy to be around in real life! I'm sure you're totally NOT a douche bag. If I've offended you then, sorry? I guess?
"Worked to get." It's a video game. There was no hard work involved. Not to mention that the entire area of the dark zone is that there is a risk of things like this happening. It adds a fun element of tension to the game that it sorely lacks otherwise. But in terms of my personal life, my friends don't seem to mind me too much. I guess I'll just have to hope they don't find out about my AWFUL video game dark side. Truly reprehensible behavior. I mean, can you imagine if my family found out I was playing a video game...by the rules?! Woof, I'd be in deep trouble!
I don't expect a reasonable response from you, especially considering the deductions you made about my personal life based on playing a video game according to the rules, but when you go into a PvP area and get killed, do you get upset? Do you not expect it? The entire point was for it to be hard to trust people in the DZ. Someone has to play that role, or else what's the point? Then the DZ is the exact same as the rest of the game. Hopefully you can find a way to wipe the tears away and clearly see how ridiculous your response sounded. And hopefully some day I will get to be the bad guy again and steal your loot :)
That's the god damned point of that game mode.
lol you would hate dayz and most survival games if your getting mad on The Division which is just a casual version of those games with RPG elements that for me kill it.
Damn, looks like a touched a nerve. Quit messing with people that aren't doing anything to you. Just because it's a video game doesn't just make it OK to screw people over. Sorry I made you mad.
The Dark Zone is already damn hard the way it is, especially if you are alone. How would troll make the game better? I was killed by a rough and all my stuff was stolen the first time I called for an extraction. The following 2-3 times it was hell because there were those bullet-spongy enemies everywhere. I was still able to retrieve a lot of good loot and buy some other as well from the vendor. I went from level 1 to 12 in a couple of hours, had enough dz money to buy a weapon twice as powerful as the one I was using. The best part of the game was the cooperation with the strangers, we were in together, for the same reason.
This article is stupid. I swear.. too much player killing and everyone complains. Now if they create a good system that keeps it limited, more complaints. You just can't win with some people.
Its a sad indictment of this generation when being an arsehole is deemed as desirable and a good thing, "trolls" should be the exception, not the rule.
It sounds like the DZ is controlled chaos and a dangerous place. I haven't played yet but I would get as many freinds as I could muster up and then go into the DZ. It sounds brilliant to me , agents going rogue and then getting bounties on them. QUESTION: Can teams just hunt rogue agents? and get loot that way and level up?
I think the lack of trolls is a good thing. The intense atmosphere comes from the fact you don't know if the people you just came across are good at heart, or out to get you. Everyone has the thought "if I do it now, I can get away with it." It's awesome, and also dangerous since at any given time someone can pop up and take you out. Going in a group is a wise move but even so, groups can gather more attention. Be it you're all about the law, or a die hard scavenger, or a maniac who just loves to stir the pot, the fact is everyone who enters the dark zone is ready to kill or be killed. A troll would only kill everyone just because, I guess that's a strategy, but that's the least amount of fun and there's no tension if you yourself just like to make everyone angry. You won't get much loot if you constantly stir the pot. People have a way of retaining a name. I've had multiple players actually come help me, and i've done the same for them, while in a gun fight. The way people can group up and then go their own way, or stick together, is wonderful. Party or not, it's fun.
Never thought I'd ever read something like this
