DayZ Update

The DayZ Blog has an update on what the team behind the upcoming standalone zombie game based on the Arma II modification has been up to over the past couple of weeks. Word is Bohemia Interactive has expanded the development team, that internal closed multiplayer testing continues, and that their lead programmer continues the process of revising the game's architecture to use the client/server model. They also discuss the inventory system and art, and in looking forward to the game's release, and in answer to questions about clothing choices, say users should expect new content releases every week.

Hate to sound callous here, but... That pretty much falls into the learn2play category. You need to be more careful and stealthy when you have nothing to defend yourself with. That goes for hostile players and zombies alike. Also learn how to bug out, evasively maneuver, tactically retreat, i.e. run the hell away safely. And avoid big cities like the plague, they are the most dangerous places because there is lots of loot -> lots of players -> lots of fighting.

But if you're going to be so sensitive about dying and having to start over at a moment's notice, you're just not going to like the game, period. That happens to veteran/geared up players, too. Sometimes you just get got, so you live with it and move on. Getting better at the game just means increasing the average period of time in between that happening.

Oh, I dont care if I get killed by normal things like players or Zombies.
But I do mind very much so, if I get killed because I "fall" 40 inches, die because I get too close to a tree or lose months work because tents disappear or are not properly hideable. Not to mention all the "hacked" servers that simply have hacked items laying everywhere, so that you never really know if its hacked or if you really are that lucky to for example find several high capacity backpacks in a supermarket, while on other servers you search ages for a single tent.
