    @captbirdseye

    We have a smallish group of Eg'ers that play most nights. We don't stick specifically to any one server, though.

    I've sent you a steam FR.

    Are there enough people around that it might be worth picking a regular server?

    @Benno

    We had been playing on a server regularly for the past few days, but we switched last night as it was fairly empty.
    There's only been 2,3 and sometimes 4 of us on at any one time so we've been mainly joining each other's game through Steam and using VOIP instead.

    Well I often play - most recently with Ian during his livestream. Be good to hook up with some egers. My Steam name is Mr Wonderstuff. Currently around the Green Mountain area.

    We should have an EG gang. Rustle up some feathers. Cap some young whippersnappers. Innit.

    Just bought into the dream after watching virtually all of Ian H's streams / YT vids :D Add me on Steam, if you like, as l think l'll prefer to play along side a few bods, as opposed to Lone Wolfing.

    I feel like this game need still a lot of improvement and its really not worth playing now, like the servers are pretty empty from what I have heared, most of the game time is spent by running and collecting loot and then just owning some undergeared newspawns. Of course there are people needed for testing, but I see so many people trying to get this game on sales etc and dont understand why. The ARMA mod version looks better for now.

    @Br0ken_Engli5h nope, just watched like hours of letsplay vids, but I guess I can tell the difference between those too (regarding gameplay). Dayz standalone is overrated right now imo

    How can it be overrated if you haven't played either?

    The standalone has it's share of problems compared with the mod, but the problems you've talked about aren't any worse. If anything I've found new spawn killing to be a lot better, especially since we don't spawn on the South coast any more. There's always plenty of populated servers to be found too.

    The standalone lacks zombies, vehicles and some military hardware. It's still fundamentally DayZ though, and has all the tension of the mod. That's not something that you'd get through watching LetsPlay videos, though.

    'Alpha' kind of gives away where the game is at the moment :s.

    Yeah, I lost a 21 hour old character the other day just because my M4 wouldn't fire when I needed it to. It was probably down to a desync issue and was pretty frustrating at the time.
    I'd still much rather lose my character to some bug/issue while a game is a WIP, rather than some twat doing it maliciously for kicks. I loved the mod, but the hacking problem was out of control.

    Speaking of bugs, don't spray your Mosin with the spraycan. You can only chamber 1 bullet instead of a full reload once you've done it. I found this out the hard way last night.

    So after the update I've got lucky and have one of my old characters that is fully loaded with everything so now I'm just trying to find somewhere to go and have some fun and find some of the new items dropped in the game.

    So far the military camp near Balota airfield has zero items in I've found. However, with the magnum and m4 supposed to be more 'rare' i found both straight away today and have loads of ammo for both. Also a weapon cleaning kit!

    Might have to join in with you lot one night soon. Used to have a group of 8 strong on a night occasionally and that made the game so much more fun. Though it took away that element of fear from other players as most people fled when they saw a UAZ and SUV driving around together

    Some great firefights here by Sacriel - in four parts but worth a watch in DayZ Standalone.

    @Br0ken_Engli5h Sorry i didn't reply earlier man but i'm trying to optimise this a bit better so was completely engrossed in that.

    Has the loot spawn been messed with? I tried playing earlier and couldn't find anything on low pop server.

    Yeah the recent patch has reduced the frequency of quite a few things. One thing that seems to be in plentiful supply is Zombies however.

    I only bought this the other day after watching a tonne of vids of the Standalone. In every vid, Z's seemed thin on the ground. Just spawn and got mobbed by 3. Died. Respawned, ran to a small town got chased by 3 separate Z's then mauled to death while hiding in a small house by a zombie that could teleport through walls. Respawned again and was much, much more cautious. So far I've managed to last long enough to hoard a big backpack, an axe, a medpack and a canteen. Amazing stuff!

    I can only apologise profusely, Crowbar. Copping an axe to the body from a friendly probably wasn't the way you'd imagined you'd be killed this character.

    Well I've got a few things for you Crowbar to make up for it, after it happened the NW airfield got a bit techy and Monkey was lucky to get out alive.

    When are you boys meeting next? In the meantime I will try and get to grips with the game so I can be of at least some assistance to the collective. Human shield/sacrifice if nothing else
