WarZ Journal: Day 1

Tags: ,

I played War Z yesterday after hours of playing RO2. I was kind of bored because I don’t have anything to do after I finish doing the daily quests and the Colosseum so I decided to check WarZ again. At first it was quite the usual feeling when I was playing it during the alpha and beta phase. The suspense and thrill of being killed was there and the eeriness of the game environment was still there. However, even at first glance I noticed that the graphics drastically changed. The lighting was good, the animations are far better now, the houses are now open and can be looted and there’s alot of new features.

I immediately logged in to Teamspeak hoping that I could play Co-op with some of my new clanmates (yeah, I joined a new clan). Good thing there was an admin to change my status to member so that I can access other channels aside from the lobby. There were some people who are playing and I asked them if we could play together. Good thing there was one who is willing to join me so we decided to meet inside US Server 60. There were 14 players when I joined the game, probably the lowest number I’ve seen so far from the server list. I created a new character just to have the feel again. I spawned at the north part of the map near Crystal Lake Resort. I was surprised to see that the landscape really changed and I managed to be familiarized again with the place even it was night time.

I checked my map and look for other possible places where i can get good loots and the closest one is the resort. I decided to go on and checked the surrounding areas for loot. I killed nearly 10 zombies to clear my path and to loot the whole place and I didn’t even get any weapons though there are time capsules, new food etc. I asked my buddy where to meet up and he said he’ll just use his other character near Goblin’s peak (safezone at the eastern part of the map) which is just a 15 minutes walk from where I am located. I continued moving on to the next place which is a small gas station and again, no weapons whatsoever. I managed to meet up with my newly found friend safely without being attacked by other players.  I noticed that there is a pointer now above the player when you are in a group which I must say is a good addition to the game. It really helps alot especially when you are grouping up with other people.

We decided to loot the next place which is a small trailer park used by the survivors at the early days of the apocalypse. Again we found nothing but food and little cash from zombies. We cleared the area and moved on to the next. My buddy and I decided to go at the other side of the lake going to the helicopter crash. We first cleared the lakehouse and then moved to the barn near it. Good thing we decided to check it out because I found a machete which I immediately use to kill the zombie running towards me. It was a 2 shot kill though I was damaged by that rotting monster. We were about to go to the helicopter crash but my internet connection acted up and I got disconnected from the game! Because Its very late and I have work the next day, I decided to bid goodbye to my clanmates and asked them if we can play again some other time. It was a good first day in WarZ. 😀

WarZ: Back from the grave

I guess I’ll be going back to WarZ  sooner than expected. I joined a new clan and I’m itching to play. Currently updating my client. 😀

I’ve read an article posted in The War Z forums that they will be implementing a new patch today. I’ll be summarizing the notable features in the patch:

  • Server Rentals/Private servers – welcome to PVE
  • Form a party up to 10 members and Group and Clan members show icons in the map – my clan mates will love this
  • Vault to access global inventory inside the game through an NPC in the safe settlements – how convenient
  • General store to access Marketplace – not really into buying because most of the items are obtainable in the game
  • New Weapons – Mosin rifle, Colt 1911 – I would want to try this
  • New item spawns – I’m a born looter so I would really want to explore the new item spawns
  • Added more zombies to increase difficulty in good item spawns – more reason to farm and kill zombies 😀

It seems that the devs have been working hard to add more content in the game, seeing that the players decreased drastically after Christmas. I myself stopped playing due to the release of Ragnarok Online 2 here in SEA and because there’s alot of hackers during our time. It has been 2 months since then and I admit that I miss playing The War Z. However, I’m still thinking if its really worth the time to play again with the new contents being added here and there, even though I know there are still hackers around. My friends and clan mates also stopped playing due to the controversies after Hammerpoint release the game in Steam. Although the company were quick to take action, it didn’t stop the rumors and the bad publicity that the game and/or the company is a fraud.

I haven’t entered Colorado (the name of the map in War Z) for 2 months now, I don’t know what to expect and what to see in there. Though I still remember the places, loot spawns, zombies, and the “friendly” players who will start shooting at you when they see you in a few meters (talk about sarcasm hehe), I miss the game and everything from it, from the thrill and suspense that it brings to you, the fear of being killed, the joy of winning a shootout with other players — as in everything.

When I’m playing the game, I feel like I’m inside the world of The Walking Dead. Speaking of which, it was the mid-season premier yesterday and I’ve already watched the episode in low quality. It was quite impressive I must say though I know what will happen even before the series started because I’ve read the comics. Back to the topic, is it really worth the time to go back in playing WarZ now that they added more content? Hmm..well to tell you the truth, No. There’s still alot of things need to be improved in the game. Cars are still not implemented, built in communication system still not up, gameplay needs to be improved, character designs and customization should be updated.

I’ve posted an article in the War Z forums where I’ve written some suggestions to the game. I’ve managed to list down some things that would improve gameplay like item durability, addition of trucks for multiple transport of people, addition of npcs, more buildings, animals, fishing and hunting, swimming, weather effects, zombie loots, compass and minimap, and in-game titles. So far the devs have been very supportive and they added some of the things I listed down. However, the updates in the content are still not enough to encourage players to play again.

A few last words regarding the topic. As a player, it really excites me to check the new content that will be added today (or tomorrow because I’m in GMT+8). I want to play if I have spare time though not at the moment because I’m busy with Ragnarok Online 2 and the projects I have in the office. I’m planning to give it a try this coming weekend after valentines and hopefully I can enjoy it again the same as before. I’ll be asking some of my friends to join me and form a group and lets see what happens. I’ll be posting some screenshots over the weekend to give you a glimpse on what to expect inside the game. For now, enjoy the screenshots below:

Hey guys, you familiar with The WarZ? I’ts a post zombie apocalyptic MMO RPG. Talk about The Walking Dead, Counter Strike and Left For Dead in 1 game right? Well I bought the game last Oct and was able to play the beta test. It’s one hell of a game if you’d ask me. The suspense, thrill, action..it keeps me awake til morning. As of this moment, I’m inactive but i’ll be back when they release a new patch with more content. I’ve enjoyed the game probably to its fullest together with my clanmates, we scavenged and do loot runs often and we also camp to kill other players 😀

In this photos, I managed to kill 3 players because of the darkness and my stealth skills. (well I just proned and kill the shit out of them and they didn’t even notice me HAHA!) The loot was awesome and they are fully packed. Sadly, my bag was full and I wasn’t able to carry more items. Got alot of guns, armors, food, melee weapons and other items. I was able to go back to the safezone without encountering other players. The best times I had when I was playing The WarZ 😀
