    I think killing someone for their supplies is a perfectly legitimate excuse in a survival game, but there's absolutely no reason to hunt down newbies in the starting coastal areas other than for shits and giggles. Which is why I welcome the upcoming morality system designed to point out scumbags.

    I also like to shoot zombies.

    On the whole not using mumble thing - I under stand it, but am wholeheartedly against it. ArmA's direct VON sucks.

    I really cannot play this game alone. Yesterday managed to die twice in 40 minutes from hordes. The last time I got ambushed by 3 zombies on a ladder, I mean what kind of zombie climbs a ladder? It was all due to my greediness though, I was trying to find a gun so desperately I wasn't careful.

    I think Mumble is cool, although it does tend to get a bit too noisy at times. Maybe when people team up, they can move to a separate channel? Also split channels according to servers?

    I never shoot other survivors on principle. If they shoot me, too bad. But I'm a nice guy! I'd probably be the first to die in a real-life zombie apocalypse, haha.
    Using Mumble is cool because you can just chat about stuff. People metagaming and typing in side annoy me, but what can you do about it.

    I feel the same, I would not want to shoot unless they do. Having said that, in the 5 hours I ve played so far, I have yet to meet any non-RPS survivors.

    What will the RPS death-squad be called? Are we looking to infiltrate other groups?

    Yeah, that's the problem. Last time I chose not to shoot someone, because maybe he'd appreciate help with the horde of zombies chasing him, he shot me instead. I won't hunt down and kill every player I see, it's safest to stay away, but if someone I don't know comes within shooting distance, I'd rather not take the chance they're going to shoot me.

    A player killer came after me just north of Cherno. At least I think he was a player killer, he didn't bother to announce himself and chased me into a barn. I hid to one side of the door, but he was damned fast. We shot each other dead simultaneously.

    I FINALLY have a positive experience with another player. It was nighttime and we teamed up to take on a small town. Got about halfway in before the zombies overwhelmed us.

    I wish I had recorded Mr. Weed the other day shouting over VON to a guy we had surrounded in a barn, to come out peacefully otherwise we would come in and shoot him! (adding 'we mean you no harm')
    They guy got scared and disconnected. I felt like a right bully.

    Yeah, I shot a guy last night - Riddick. He had gear I needed. It's a zombie apocalypse, baby.

    The player experiences I've had have varied depending on how close I got to the players.

    The two guys me and Alex teamed up with were friendly and cooperative. The guy who assault-rifled us from behind who we never saw was not.
    The person I teamed up with to head from Chernagorsk to the airfield was cool (I gave them my map when I disconnected) - the person who sniped me twice near the petrol station was not.

    Even the people who shot me (I ran towards them hoping for safety - one yelled, "Shit, zombie!" and capped me. I survived, though, and they gave me medical attention. The moral of the story is don't run towards people.) - were pleasant.

    Of course all of these stories end in my horrible death, but it's still overwhelmingly been to the undead.

    Hi guys

    I was planning on joining you for a few games of arma a while ago but had a few pc problems (my first pc I've built in the last 10 years) but I've finally got it all sorted.

    I'll try and make it to the next session you guys have but I've seen quite a few of you on the dayz servers so if you see me about it'd be great if we could team up, it's damn lonely in zombie country and I've been shot in the back more than once the trusting fool I am :)

    I thought setting up this mod was difficult, and then I tried Mumble. OH MY GO-

    Think I've burned myself out on this game. It's just not interesting by yourself. Three days of playing and all I've got to show for it is one friendly encounter.

    Yes it is a lot more interesting with others. Should try and organize an evening and get a few of us on a server and meet up.

    On a different note, I keep thinking this game needs anomalies and an anomaly detector...

    I'm in favour of not murdering people who approach a large group of us and put themselves at our mercy. We could've asked nicely for his stuff then shot him if he didn't give it to us.
