After playing many hours Dayz and after finding my way in this apocalyptic world I would like to share with you readers my personal thoughts about this wonderful mod.
In my life I’ve played many games and only one can compete with Dayz regarding the intensity of emotions aroused: EVE Online.
I am a veteran of EVE Online and in Dayz I found again the tension in dealing with another player, the adrenaline rush killing an opponent, the terror of not knowing what you expect in a few moments, the gratification of exploring unknown places. In a few months Dayz has matched subscriptions of EVE Online (the sandbox for excellence) and this can not be an accident.
Many points are in favor of Dayz:
1) Even alone you can be successful . This was true for EVE online a few years ago but after the changes in the mechanics of the game is no longer possible to play EVE Online and be successful alone.
2) Dayz is very real while in EVE online have recently introduced the human characters and in any case there is still no interaction between them.
3) In Dayz you lose everything if you die, but it is easy to regain the lost items. In EVE there is insurance but to be competitive you must have items of high value and losing a ship several billion worth is frustrating.
4) many other reasons that it is better not to face here;)
In DayZ website are well highlighted three steps:
Equip does not require further action such as building, mining, learn skills, experience points, etc.
You just have to go somewhere and search without being seen by zombies or survivors. What really matters is the player and not the character.
You can choose to only kill the zombies or the other survivors.
You can kill only those who have good equipment or you can kill everyone on sight. You can even choose to remain in the shadows and avoid any kind of encounter. In Dayz if you meet an hostile group the fight is more balanced, is a real gunfight while in EVE Online is ALWAYS all against one, and becomes only a matter of time and luck if you die or live.
In Dayz is very easy to kill someone with better gear than yours.
In Dayz you can live without any special features. You only need some matches, a hatchet and you can live forever. Also only surviving is interesting because you have to find food and water and this implies an interaction with the world of Dayz.
Finally, there is no endgame in Dayz … you just have to survive as long as possible. No matter the equipment you own … what matters is the minute that you can be in the game without dying.
This is Dayz … this is my story
