Last time I played standalone it was very buggy, had very few zombies, and no vehicles. I might understand getting standalone if you don't already have Arma 2.

Jesus Christ I remember how much fun I used to have with Origins back in the day. I know a few members, recent arrivals however, who I have played a lot of this with.

Honestly if you were thinking about getting into all this again with the ol' Baldry gang and stuff, or if it's still going, I'd be totally up for rocking it with this crew if possible.

Holy shit. That looks so much better than the game itself...

I would advise waiting on Standalone, unless you don't have ARMA II, I enjoy SA, but the community IS worse than the mod, I've never lasted more than a few days on high population servers, so I'd advise waiting until release.

what are you talking about I managed to get killed three times in a matter of 15 minutes back in the mod

The Standalone is a lost cause. The devs are probably the laziest cunts alive. No point buying the game at this point. Maybe if they actually start working on it, it might become something, but as it stands, it's not worth it at all.

Soon as Rocket stops putting his hands all over it and they make sure that they get a bigger Dev team, it might start getting better. Who knows. I still have fun, but, I'm not one to get bad at a game.

you're a retard, DayZ is being updated frequently, they've added in a lot of new features and rebuilt some from grounds up

you're a retard, Rocket left Bohemia Interactive while the game company bought a few smaller ones to do stuff for them (such as Bohemia Interactive Bratislava which coded the animal AI and modelled deers and stuff)

but at the end of the day they have pretty much nothing (significant) to show for all the effort they may or may not have put into the game in the past two years or so

new inventory system
new ui
new zombie ai working on the new animation system (even though they're buggy as shit)
vehicles
and lots of showcases of soon-to-be-implementedstuff

that's significant for me, since I remember the times without navmeshes and zombies running through walls

well it's mostly because they were thinking that the A2 engine is gonna be cool
turns out it wasn't so they're busy creating their own bloody renderer, player controller and many more
pretty much most of the DayZ story is apparently them having to modify the current engine and then figure out it's pointless, opting for complete rewrite of the thing (such as the navmesh system, instead of dynamic creation of navmeshes done in ArmA 2 that taxed computers pretty badly)
