Is it time to have fun yet?

Long story short, out of my last 10 deaths, something like 8 have been directly related to hacks.  Teleporting 1000m into the air, random ambush zones, terminators, etc.  You name it, I’ve had it happen to me.  Not that being hacked isn’t bad enough, but it frequently seems to occur immediately after a particularly successful group of kills.  I can only assume they attempt to be seeking some form of retribution.

As much as I love this game, it is very, very frustrating to continually be eradicated by hackers and have to make the long road back to gear up all over again.  What’s surprising is that more people aren’t upset over this.  By this point in time I have numerous tents close to Cherno and Elektro on several servers that allow for speedy access to new gear.  I can only assume that most players don’t have access to similar quantities or levels of gear and being killed in any way, let alone hacked, is a massive setback.  This applies doubly so ever since the removal of the respawn button.

I’m still going to be playing DayZ and I can’t wait for the stand alone game to come out, but dying as frequently as I am with no chance of being able to to defend myself is killing my desire to play the game.  At the end of the day it’s ending up similar to CoD – so long as there isn’t a reasonable way to avoid dying or learn from the process, what’s the point of continuing to play?

  1. Its out of control. They’re on EVERY server.

  2. I have not had this many problems and i have been playing a lot. Don’t get me wrong it has happened but luckily the server i was on was quick to do something and most people got there stuff back. I lost nothing but i have ample gear available. I also know the good loot spots so it didn’t bother me much but if it happens much more i think i might wait till something is done to fix it if anything before playing again. Really servers can fix it because all hackers are doing is using script editors not everyone can do that and if they spent a few minutes to look through what happened it would be a little more contained but until then this will keep happening.

  3. I just started Dayz and I can regretfully say, that within 30 mins of me starting, I had already been dropped from the sky, Put into the thunderdome, and dropped in the middle of the ocean all within the span of a couple hours. Yet, since then I haven’t ran into any hackers. Heck, I’ve been getting alot of those admin messages saying something along the lines of “Battleye has banned over 10,000 hackers and is aware of the rampant hacking, and is working on a solution.” Now that could mean jack monkey squat, but I can only assume they are working on fixing it.

  4. I am very time limited and currently playing 5 multiplayer games … One hacker death(or death by game engine) is enough to keep me away from DayZ a week or more in frustration.

    I cannot even play DayZ alone without a netflix series running, or I’d die of bordom.

  5. It was pretty fun at the start, but rarely get on now. I’d much rather play games that are enjoyable.

  7. I found an AS50 last night and I am having fun with that. Haven’t played in 2 week before last night. Hope I don’t have the same problems. Especially that I have a sniper with 30+ mags.

  9. This is the reason I didn’t get the game. I would have hated spending the money just to end up not playing the game any more 3 days after buying it. I don’t understand why people do this stuff. The only thing they’re doing is proving how retarded and childish they are.

  10. I personally have not encountered any hackers besides the one from the livestream with the bus. Then again, I don’t play in many high pop servers because I’m a fucking loser.

  11. Hey Waldo u should play lingor island. After getting hacked 3+ times daily on our server, getting our vehicles blown up, and well u know the usual hack shitstorm, we’ve been playing Lingor Island. It is an unofficial map, and there is almost no hacking. The people seem to be friendlier, or at least in global chat… and almost no alt f4s for days, also since the map is smaller, there is much more action, I’ve killed around 20 people in the last 2 days. There is no interest for hackers there mostly since its a private hive. If u do decide to play i would recommend server Dayz Dallas, or search that. It is the lingor map, has reasonable ping and many players or should i say, prey…

  12. Havent been hacked yet, but seeing all the videos of these aholes doing all this is frustrating to say the least. I play a few hours a week because school and a shitty job but i have to go into super low pop servers and pray to the flying spagetti monster that i dont get fucked up by some rat bastard hacker.
