Played this with the wife at a special event at PAX West 2014. It doesn't look like it's changed much. The grind does seem real, but the more annoying this was the fucking artillery zombies.
So you put all this effort into building a base that funnels them into your traps and guns etc. and then they spawn these zombies that stay 100m away from your base and just lob artillery, and in a minute your roof has caved in, leaving your base mostly buggered.
For your transgressions you shall be labeled a shill, called an idiot and anytime you mention facts or disagree with a tribe member you will henceforth be known as a troll. The best you can hope for is that the labels won't haunt your offspring. -RedEye9
