So, last night I played for about 3 hours with my brother.

Task one was to locate each other, we decided that we would meet in a small town north of the capitol city (Chernagorsk). Honestly the name isn't even on the map. While en route I had to pass through another small town, it was filled with zekes and I am pretty sure that there were other survivors on the hillside nearby. My only choice was to attempt to pass on the coast line. There was a problem with this. I thought I'd luck out and be able to stay on the shoreline, feet in the water, roadie running to relative safety. But, there was a harbor. A twenty foot drop into water about as deep. Swimming will make you dump your backpack and some of your other gear. I could try and low crawl across the 70+ yards of completely exposed dock.

That's when I noticed two things. One an upright zombie, and the second was a sniper in the trees. I could see his mask which immediately marked him as a bandit. If he noticed that I was a player, he'd take a shot and I'd be dead. So, I got as low to the ground as I could, and I crawled. Running would make too much noise and walking would give me a larger silhouette. I stayed close to the edge of the dock, and it paid off. A zeke spotted me as a round plinked harmlessly into a barrel near my location. I panicked. Rolled right off the dock. A few more feet and I'd still have my pack. After a quick inventory of what remained, I ran. I ran like I knew I shouldn't have. I didn't even have my water bottle anymore. I ran and ran and finally when I had some cover turned around to see the sniper being over ran by some of the upright zekes I didn't notice. I small chuckle to myself, heart still pounding, I continued moving.

After getting climbing up into the coastal hills, I had to find something. Six makarov mags and a couple of bandaids might be good enough to keep me from dying, but what I really needed was some replacement equipment. I had no food, no water and no pack. That run took almost all of it out of me. I had to hope that I could find some kind of landmark, something more unique than a road to follow. So I climbed higher up into the hills until I crested the top and saw it. Power lines. And a village full of zekes. I might have needed water and a pack but I couldn't risk it. Not right now. Skirting the outside of the town and all of it's shambling inhabitants I followed the powerlines south. Where they branched out, one set running to Chernogorsk and the other running to Elektrozavodsk.

I ran into a small timber camp. Nothing special, a single ape zeke wandering around outside of a small building. I crouched in the forest waiting for him to move to the other side of it. When he did, I walked as calmly as possible into the building and tried not to slam the door shut. I had hoped for some supplies and came up with only some window glass for a car. Shit.

So what is the online play, is it players vs. zombies or what? Or do players fight each other too?

I'll like this a lot of more if we can go about our business without worrying about being lamed by ass hats around every corner.

It's player vs player vs zombies. The zombies are more... just there and will attack you if you make too much noise, but the players... you just never know. Having fast hands on the keyboard, or a microphone is pretty nice. Player audio comes from the model unless you are on the global radio. If you are set to local the louder you shout, the further off you can be heard, etc. The game is more about... what kind of person are you going to be? And part of the fun I guess is having to avoid each other or talk to each other... or just open fire.

I also tend to play on servers with lower populations and lower pings.

And now back to my story:

I quickly exited the logging camp building, continuing eastward. I only knew which direction to head because of the rising sun. After a little walking I come across another decimated village, two vehicles destroyed on the road just outside. Of course zeke is there, shambling about. At this point they have become a minor annoyance. My real concern lies in whether or not I'm going to die starving and thirsty.

Spotting a small structure just up the hill and away from the wandering zekes of the village i head towards it. I luck out. It's a small mining complex with a guard post. I rush inside and shut the door. Oh shit. Some food, an empty bottle of whisky, some chemlights, a crossbow bolt and some binoculars. I take the food, the empty whisky bottle, the chemlights and the binoculars. Maybe I can put some water in this bottle and drink out of it.

Disregarding the other buildings, I exit the guard shack. I now HAVE to meet with my brother, I am getting really thirsty. I began hoping he still had a water bottle and that he had it filled.

Following the power lines once more, after about two or three minutes I see another figure in the distance. Immediately I go prone, drawing down on this other person. At this distance I don't know if it's a marauder or a friendly. As he gets closer I can here my brother shouting, "YES!! FINALLY!"

The average life expectancy is only 27 minutes at this point. And I'm sure that if I were to login right now, I'd have to make a mad dash out of the city I'm in. But, I don't have a lot of stuff so... But I did find binoculars.

Well, I died after about 3 hours and 26 minutes. It was the middle of the night and my brother and I were running out of a major city in the dark. He had zekes all over him, I turned to shoot and was overran. He survived.

In the short time that Allust and i played this is what happened.

I met up with Allust on a pier in a small coastal town. Piers are great places to stay away from the zekes. They are afraid of water. Won't even go over the top of it. We were waiting on my brother to meet up with us. I decided we should try and find some supplies in a warehouse near the pier.

We entered and cleared the warehouse pretty quickly gathering what supplies were there. Then things went south. As we stood in a room waiting for zekes to walk in and get murdered I didn't even think they could dig through the concrete wall next to me. Then I got bitten. Some confusing over bandages and how to use the interface and I almost died. Passing out every minute or so. Allust also got hurt at one point but we patched him up okay. I'm now blanking out about every fifteen seconds. Waiting for someone to just end it.

I don't know how I got hurt, I climbed up the ladder and when I got to the top I heard zombie sounds and then it said my leg was broke and I couldn't walk :O

I'm assuming it was a bug

The inventory system is fucking retarded!

I've played about an hour, so far:
--I've found no weapons, except a grenade which i figured out how to throw and knock myself out for a good 1-2 minutes (real time)
--Found out you can't hand-to-hand anything
--Can't even pickup the only possible weapon I may have found besides the grenade, which was an axe stuck in a log.. I guess it's the Master Axe
--Jumped off a dock at maybe 15 ft and broke my legs, permanently.. leaving myself to crawl through the world only
--Ran through entire towns and found not a single thing in them

Alpha... mmmhmm

Yeah it's a little silly you can't hand to hand things unless you find a knife or a hatchet or whatever (one you can pick up). At least have a shove mechanic so if a zombie gets on you you can get some separation to get away or something. I think the ARMA IIengine is too limited for this sort of thing.

Also weird you can't enter every building and also weird zombies can apparently open doors that you close if you do find a building you can enter that has a door.

I know they are trying to create a simulation experience, but it seems like stuff is still missing. With ARMA III coming out I question why they even bothered building this in the ARMA II engine. Hopefully they can easily port it over to the upgraded engine.

Wait until they release the standalone version of DayZ. They're going to release it alpha-funding style like Minecraft did, so we should be able to get it fairly early.

ARMA 2 is a shit engine.

yea you need a super computer to run dayz decently, which is my main beef with it as it is now... arma II's engine is really powerful because it can render such huge worlds live, but performance really takes a hit and even the best computers run like shit on max settings (I have 3x 7970's and i7 3770k watercooled at 4.5ghz and I can't go full settings, though that may be because AMD can't release good crossfire drivers ever)

standalone, who knows when it'll be out, but I have a feeling they've been working on it since they want to cash in on the craze before it dies down

I think it must be AMD drivers because I run it maxed out without many problems. It's a boring, outdated engine anyway though so hopefully the standalone is better.

The engine will be the same engine as arma 3. Which should be better. Honestly the shitty fps engines that can only do like 20km are not worth it. 0 ballistic calc = crap. The whole point behind the arma series are the ballistics. The biggest bottleneck with the arma games is your hard drive.

What's your alias? We can have some adventures anyway, I am loaded up from owning some fool ATM, but we can do w/e. You have a certain server you play on? Hopefully the stand alone puts it on 200+ people servers without ability to change between servers.

I'm mainly resupply/medic and I play on whatever server. I have an overwatch/sniper that tags along for most stuff. I don't have a specific server though. Usually look for west coast servers with low pings.

I decided last night after a hacker spawned next to me and killed me that I would make myself a low value target.
