5 Reasons To Get Excited For The ‘DayZ’ Standalone!

No Hackers

Come on, this is obvious, but it still must be stated: the reason why the DayZ standalone is taking so long to come out is because the game is moving to a client-server structure like an MMO. That means, in theory, that hackers will be a thing of the past, which is truly wonderful. No longer will you have to worry about a random drop from the sky, or a spawn in the middle of a barbed-wire pen, where you have to fight for you life. It’s going to be FAIR now. Hopefully.

Here’s what Rocket told Gamasutra:

“From here, once we’ve finished our server/client architecture — because we’re moving it an MMO model — we’re reviewing the situation of that in June, and then we do an alpha, just like Minecraft. People pay X amount of dollars and they get early, cheap access to it, and then once it’s beta, price goes up, maybe, say, $10, and once it goes retail, the price goes up $10.”

Rocket has long said that this would be the most arduous and difficult part of DayZ’s move into the standalone, but when we are all on an even playing field, we will look back on the wait and say that it was absolutely worth it.

    Dude. I play DayZ almost nightly and I’ve got to say the main reason I am excited to play the SA is to get rid of many of the glitches and hacks. The popularity seems to be waning as well. Most of the Taviana servers I used to regular have all died.

    Poisoned water seems pretty legit though. I am going to have fun with that.

    Over 285 pages of reported glitches and problems. That’s over 14,000+ PROBLEMS that this game has, and you want to tell me to look forward to this sh!t?
    This game sucks a$$ – They have over $90 million dollars over customer money and have given you false hope of something that was never intended on becoming more than an alpha program. ALL ON THE RUSE OF STEALING YOUR MONEY!!!
