Read here to see what I'm talking about.
I'll also share what is known below.
For those who don't know, War Z is a recent MMO FPS made to cash in on the popularity of Day Z (The popular ARMA II Mod), the game is free to play with a one time purchase... What lots of people don't know is that this game is just a giant moneywhoring scam, and I post this here because I know a good lot of you like zombie games, and I don't want you cool peeps to fall victim to their lies. The game uses a microtransaction model, which would normally not be that big a deal, and isn't anything surprising for free to play games, but the devs boast this games survival aspects, its not surviving if you can just pay real money for supplies to give you the upper hand. Also, you lose those supplies when you die. So you can pay money for some item, join a game, die, there goes your money.Video on just how horribly made the game is.
You could argue that Day Z is horrible, and from what I've heard it is in many ways, but it's a free mod for a free game, and that mod is in Alpha, where as War Z is advertised as a full game that you have to pay for.
"WarZ Devs have reportedly just released a patch which proves their quick money-grabbing and game-breaking schemes. After changing the description of their game due to TotalHailbut calling them out on false advertising, they have now updated the game with a new patch.
Steam users are reporting the following: "... They actually increased the respawn-timer from 1 hour to 4 hours. BUT they added a revive button, where you can spend 50GC (real money) to revive them instantly." Additionally, they are now forcing you to sign the TOS to play the game, which includes disallowing refunds. This is against the law.
How is it against the law? False advertising, which is still going on."War Z stole it's Terms of Service from the popular game League of Legends because the devs were lazy.Just about every game feature listed by the developers is in no way implemented into the game.They lied about the size of the game's map.The game is being slammed by users on MetaCritic.Devs begging people to go to vote on metacritic.Shocking interview with the developers showing how terrible their logic is as they try to justify lying about the game.Valve is investigating the War Z Steam Game Forums after users are banned from it unfairly by the moderator of the Official War Z Forums for calling the devs out on their lies.
I also want to add some more information on the game...
The game is almost entirely composed of hackers, well over half the games population is hacking. Why? Because it's easy and nobody, no moderators, admins, nobody is stopping them from doing it. That means you have a bunch of cheaters running around killing anybody else, so then the non-cheaters are like "Fuck this I can't do anything in this game without getting killed, so I'm gonna cheat too", and start cheating as well.
On top of that, the online economy is broken, a duplication glitch was discovered and players have duplicated thousands of the games most expensive items (Items you would buy normally from the online store with real money), the duplication glitch was fixed, but people still have all this duped gear, and again, nobody is doing anything about it.
