I haven't been on in a while due to real life stuff but hopefully by the time that is sorted out the game will be considerably further along with its update implementation process.

Tons of new additions/changes to the new patch, which hopefully should be on the stable branch soon of DayZ. Looking forward to it big time.

Big fat change log for the experimental branch. Tons of new stuff. It's pretty incredible how much they are adding to this game in such short periods of time.

Haha, they put a 100 player server on the experimental branch. Had some big issues but it was hilarious running around and seeing people just having a massive brawl. 15-20 of us organized in a church and we started to hold out against the swarm of bad people. Turned into a massacre.

Ah, DayZ. You are a pretty game.



Also, bicycles are confirmed to be coming soon as one of the first vehicles. Also, persistent backpacks (so if you drop one on a server with stuff in it then it stays there.

I'm fine with that. Forenci and I disagree on this one, but I've thought he hasn't been a great developer from the onset. I appreciate the idea of DayZ he brought, and his involvement in the community, but I think the game is much better off in someone else s hands.

I am torn on it. Hall reminds me of Peter Molyneux with Fable. He consistently over promised and under delivered. Does this mean that Hall is a bad developer or the game is worse off without him? To be honest I don't know.

Hopefully the game doesn't tank and improvements are more consistent and more frequent.

I don't disagree as much as you think. I think Hall is an excellent "idea guy" and a good project leader. I think there are probably numerous instances where the game has struggled because of him taking a hands on approach with programming. In terms of running a team, I think he's damn good at that though. I think that will be a good thing when he runs his own company.

Eh? I sort of disagree with this. When has he "consistently over promised?" The one big time I remember this is saying the standalone would be ready way back when and then they went in a different direction. Other than that, I think if anything, he's always tried to undersell the game. Telling people out right that "it's not a great game right now, don't buy it" does not seem like over promising.

And I'm not too worried. He's not leaving for another 10 months, and he also said he would stay longer if he's needed. By that time, I think it will be beneficial to hand it over to someone else. By that time, vehicles, base building, etc. will all mostly be in (hopefully). Again, I love Hall because he's open and honest and interacts with the community, and because he's got some great ideas that mainstream video game makers would never try.

I am talking since the DayZ inception. There has been a ton of promises that have yet to be delivered and we are going on two years.

He's staying for at least another year. He said he'll be on DayZ until both himself and Bohemia decide he is no longer needed.

No changes to the road-map. He simply wants it to be known that he's a very independent person and needs a more open platform to work with.

Honestly after the next year it is probably best for Hall to work on something else. He's an "idea guy" and once they fully release they won't be tacking on huge overarching features.

Such as what? He's one of the only developers I've ever seen to undersell what is in the game and its current state.

I don't know fully. I stopped tracking the game after the mod didn't get an update for a while. Then he announced the standalone.

Granted they are related but my information is outdated and opinionated. Either way its semantics and hopefully in his time and after he leaves they can continue to deliver on what he promised.

Okay? So you basically are upset over absolutely nothing then?

Also..the mod continued development and saw a significant number of updates after he left to work on the standalone.

Oh I was never upset. I was just saying it seemed like he was as you guys have put it a big idea guy and less on getting everything done. As time went on it seemed like he lost more and more steam and the development lagged.

Not a slight at Hall I was just saying he reminded me of Peter Molyneux.

I was confused because you said he wasn't delivering on promises but then couldn't cite any examples of it.

And honestly, it's impossible to judge what he can and cannot deliver, considering the game is just in early alpha now and this is his first real game. I think people forget that sometimes.

This is just my opinion, having closely followed the development of this game, but I think Hall wanted to take the game in a slightly different direction but Bohemia has the final say and that's been one of his big reasons for not staying longer. That and he wants to go home. Can't blame the guy for that.

I think he wants to be an independent developer so he can make his dream games. I just think the reaction, particularly on Reddit, has been hilarious.

"HE STOLE OUR MONEY! HE'S A QUITTER!"

He created the game, he has set the road map and development direction, and now he's managing the team and developing the game to what it will need to be. In a year or perhaps longer he will pass the torch. That is not uncommon or a bad thing.

Yeah I am not upset. As long as the game continues to develop and eventually become a quality game I won't complain about the money I spent to buy it. Hall or no Hall as long as I get quality play time I won't *****.

As for what I was getting at. I was just trying to say that I don't know if him leaving is a good or bad thing as I have a feeling a team of dedicated developers could do what he is trying to accomplish at a quicker pace but it being his brain child how well can they keep the original vision.
