    Why is it so difficult to drive?

    You can toy around in the offline mode with this community mod: https://github.com/Arkensor/DayZCommunityOfflineMode/releases

    Actually, in one of the December 2018 stream they said that the game they have envisioned will probably be finished in 2020.

    Okay so this happened.

    Correct, that mentality is in some ways the same as KOSing. Sometimes KOSing might be a tactical choice, but also I had my fair share of players that did anything to kill me while I had nothing. Nevertheless, it is on Bohemia to balance base building. And I know it can be tricky as everyone has a different idea on what is too difficult or too easy to raid.

    Perhaps because somebody put a lot of time and effort into it? I know that they dismantle it to get extra nails, but it is a poor excuse to be such a griefer

    Sounds like my own experience on base building. Had a great time building my base and in the first few weeks I only had the regular break ins by destroying one wall. However, after coming online after a few days of not playing, I just found my whole base to be dismantled. Only the foundations were still standing. I even went on a journey to find nails... Finding 5 boxes and used them all the rebuild a good portion of my wall. Couple of days later, even those rebuild walls were dismantled. Why somebody would take the time to just ruin somebody's base goes beyond me... Until they balance it, I have no interest in building a base any more.

    I noticed some improvements in this area actually. Placing it on slope ground, even it is just a little, can prove difficult. However, I noticed no problems when placing it on flat areas in a field or forest. Before 1.02 it was even almost impossible to place it on a flat surface.

    The UNITED KINGDOM & the EUROPEAN UNION

    True, Germany has a lot of voting power. But so does the UK, France and Italy. Based on population. But every member state is welcome to form a coalition against other member states in the voting process. Germany cannot push for EU laws just on its own and will always need the support of other EU member states, perhaps even compromising on a law to receive such support. It is not really different to that of some national political systems, like the USA, where some states also have less influence on federal matters since the lower amount of population. I agree with your other points.

    The UNITED KINGDOM & the EUROPEAN UNION

    Norway takes a good portion of EU laws, participates in a lot of EU programs and is very much committed to the EU as a whole. They simply just do not have any voting power or the euro. Really, Norway would not be worse of when joining the EU. Saying that the EU takes away a nations independence is nonsense. Every member state is a sovereign nation within the EU and can choose to leave the Union whenever it wants, as a sovereign and independent nation. Haha beautiful? The UK's economy has only seen negative effects of the Brexit so far. This ridiculous process has cost the British taxpayer millions and millions...

    Cars work pretty good in offline mode... It just becomes a bit sad to get a new car in the last patch while online they are almost unusable due to server performance issues.

    This is exactly what the US and Russia want as well! For Europe to remain divided so that we cannot reach our true potential. Why should we stop integrating? Just because other superpowers feel intimidated? That is not the correct mindset, we should not let other nations dictate our future. While I know the EU has been influencing Eastern-European states, Russia has been doing similar and more with the events in Ukraine. I see no reason to back-off from Russia, better yet, it is a country that only know hard-power (instead of soft power). I know borders serve a purpose and I am for strict EU borders, we cannot have Europe overrun by illegal immigrants. Same with a One World Order. It might be possible, but only so far in the future that we have colonized other planets.

    The UNITED KINGDOM & the EUROPEAN UNION

    Well put. I have been a proud Euro-Federalist for over 10 years and I deem it the only way ''forward''. Together we can act as a united front against other superpowers, use our influence around the world (which is a good thing) and bundle resources in economic, social and high tech development. To just name a few. Exactly as you said, the nation states as we know it today barely exist for a couple of hundred years, but most people can't seem to think that they can live without. Nation states create artificial borders and have little to do with culture. Even in a European Federation each state and region will have its own historical culture, royalty etc. But if a effective European government can manage foreign affairs, the environment, military, EU FBI, European infrastructure and international economics and trade, then that would be great, other policy fields could be partly done by the European government and by the state governments.

    Exactly! We need the European Federation ASAP. The nation states belong to the past and only a united Europe can stand the test of time.

    Dunno about the bug, but the slower metabolism is welcome. They only need to reduce the amount of food that spawns so it evens out again. But then again, this is all connected to a missing feature called fishing, and the lack of diseases when eating raw meat
