  1. Probably the same as what you get from Bohemia. Regards
  2. 5 months till the new update? Realy?

    Obviously the definition of niche game for a niche community depends on how much you subjectively interpret the numbers. Taking into consideration the initial success of DayZ with its very large player count compared to the present one, leaves no doubt that this game has lost a lot of players and sadly, most of them will not come back. I know that some people expect "miracles" from 0.63 and take almost for granted a massive return of players from then onward. Let's hope so, but I take nothing for given. The stream was interesting but 8 k viewers is not exactly a record breaking amount on YouTube. Consider also that probably half of those views came most likely from people who normally play DayZ already, so the "net gain" is rather modest. So the DayZ numbers, in the greater scheme of things regarding this game, are limited and I would still claim very niche. The existence of different "factions" on the forum and their often rabid statements cannot be simply swept away by saying that everyone has their own goal and play style, it goes much deeper than that. To me it's a sign of a split and factious community. In any case, time will tell. Let's patiently wait and see. Regards

    Well, at this stage nobody can deny that DayZ has become a niche game for a niche number of players (official player count numbers don't lie I'm afraid). But even within this relatively small community there are different "factions" of players who usually don't agree on much. This fragmentation of views and opinions is clearly noticeable in the forum almost on a daily basis. One would think that after the mass exodus of players over the course of time, the ones still playing after more than 4 years of early access would be a tight knit, uniform and cohesive group of individuals with common objectives, but this is not the case. Why not? Maybe the answer lies in the fact that this game has lost that broad appeal it originally had. Too particular, catering too much to a limited audience and getting lost in the pursue of an ever increasing and never ending search for more "realism" (which sometimes leads to heated debates about minor features elevated to a question of life and death for some). There seems to be almost a race among some players, to prove their superior and often patronizing attitude on the "right or wrong" way to play DayZ. The game should punish and/or reward this type of play style, it's ok to do this but you're and idiot if you do that. I have previously compared this behavior to a religious fervor and a kind of "game dogmatism" which leads nowhere. Only by regaining that initial excitement and increasing the player base substantially, can DayZ once again become a great game.
  4. If you speak from a grammatical point of view "pleasantly surprised" is perfectly correct. If you refer to your personal opinion of the stream no problem. Regards
  5. Did I misunderstand or, did you not express yourself with enough clarity in your syntax? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt considering our past exchange of views. As to the stream, better to withhold final judgement until further notice. Prefer, as always, to be pleasantly surprised later rather than jump on the hype bandwagon now. Regards.

    Don't worry the developers are working on it. We're still early access remember? Anytime before the final release of the game in 2030. Regards
  7. I presume you are speaking for yourself. A lowest common denominator isn't exactly what one should strife for in any field of human existence If technology alone is to rule the world then we're in for a very bleak future. Regards
  8. Sounds like a community with very intricate rules and guidelines. Please read the fine print on the10 page contract before signing on to avoid unpleasant surprises. Regards
  9. Your Latin language skills leave much to be desired young man. Even in the brutish and harsh environment of DayZ among KOS psychopaths, vegetables farmers and survivalist die-hards, a bit of classical culture is essential. Regards

    I beg your pardon Sir. Didn't wish to offend your somewhat inattentive reading skills. In any case don't worry, practice makes perfect. Regards

    I know that reading is not everybody's favorite activity (even in this forum). But, try making an effort and kindly inform yourself. See forum post: "0.63 Developer Live Stream - 14th March 2018 By Baty Alquawen, 18 hours ago in Announcements & Information" Regards
