I wish I had seen this thread sooner.

Looks like so much fun, but I really don't want to drop $30 right now, and the Arma II CO deal is already off. :/

It's not worth paying for, he is systematically ruining the game by making it too hard core, loads of game breaking bugs, plus he will switch to ARMA3 engine eventually.

The latest patch made the game even more hardcore. Me and my friend developed a special tactic now, which consists of looting deer stands and mostly small houses, which can net you some good items from time to time.
But while this is much together on the one hand, well, there are still some weird bugs, for example zombies hitting you trough walls or spotting you, without being near ..

I share this sentiment. Such a shame, too, because when I initially got into the game it was rather fun and the challenge seemed just right. Its beyond ridiculous at this point.

Yeah it is really annoying that when I am crawling around a building I want to enter to have a zombie all the sudden come running out and attack me.

After the last adventures of myself & Lingwo I went alone today and actually did pretty well!

I spawned outside of Elektro and went on a massive looting session, I found a Czech Backpack which I filled up with blood packs epi-pens, morphine, bandages & painkillers. I have an Enfield (not so cool as it's just too damn loud) & a Makarov PM. I was in the Church when I saw this guy with a hatchet run past with a hoard of Zeds chasing him. He came inside & I shot him with the Enfield, he started bleeding but managed to get close enough to me to swipe & hit me! That knocked me unconscious and bleeding, the guy had zeds to deal with and was on the floor, this allowed me to come too and shoot him & kill him. So I now have 1 murder and was down to about 6.8k blood count. I also disposed of some of Zeds and then ran for it.

Pick up a few supplies and headed to the barn just outside of Elektro, bad idea, it was full of zeds and I lost another 2k of blood so down to 4.8k. I decide to try and find an animal to kill and cook the meat as I had a hunting knife, hatchet & matches.

As I looked around the outskirts of Elektro for a wild beast, I pulled out the Binoculars and found a Push Bike! Yes an Old Push Bike! Went and got aboard and ended up cycling around, found a cow, shot it with my Enfield which attracted Zeds from miles away! So got back on the bike and hit the road!

Got a video of it too which I am uploading to YouTube at the moment. So I am now currently in the deep forest, I've saved the old bike so when I log back in to the server it will still be there hopefully.

Need to next play with a friend so they can give me a blood transfusion!

How many times can one man sing "They see me rolling....they hating" without actually carrying on to the next part of the song? Just for your info, this is the version you should be singing :) ...
