I'd like to know what you think of the changes they make in the DayZ patches and if you like them or not.
So, first of all, thank you Paul, for introducing us to this awesome mod, as you have with several other awesome games.
As you probably have noticed, they added female player models. But if you chose male or female, your choice is permanent. It's bound to your CD-/registration-key. You'd have to buy another copy of ArmA 2 just to play the other gender. What do you think about this? Here's my oppinion:
I personally like the fact that the choice of genders is permanent. Why? It makes you think. As we already know from the MMORPG-scene, many guys play a female character. Some because they like looking at female player models (that, a lot of these games, are way underdressed!!!), some want special treatment and seriously: We all know there are some guys out there, even if not many, that will go: "OMG, is that a real woman? Here, have all my gold!". And a lot of other people instinctively treat females differently (most of the time better) than males. I, as a guy, know that, and sometimes I behave differently when co-opping with a female character, but I still try to figure out through their chat messages, if it isn't a guy. In DayZ, where you need the local voice chat a lot, a female character would limit a guy by far. He could barely communicate, and seriously: How suspicious would it be if only 1 out of 15 female characters had a microphone, if you know what I mean?
It also adds this new aspect of psychology to the game. As a guy, seing another guy in the shed, with a much better weapon than yours and a bandit skin, you would instantly shoot him, no need to take that risk, he ain't a bandit for no reason. But what if it were an attractive woman. What would you do? (Sorry, Female readers, but I can't think of any questions to you right now.) I have no idea what I'd do, but I'd probably get my buttics out of there, forget the loot and run for the hills before I do anything stupid. Maybe I'd shoot her. I don't know yet. But, this game is highly realistic and roll playing, so compare this to real life. What would you do?
So, the next thing on my mind is: A couple of guys made a YouTube video, I think it were 4-6 or maybe a few more people, and they were standing in the church of one of the bigger cities (like Elektro) and a lone survivor happened to call for help. He ran out of food and was forced to go into town. There he got into a firefight with a zombie-horde and happened to run out of ammo, so the only thing he could do was run for his character's life. The group leader instantly offered him sanctuary, if he'd come to the church. Inside the group, he inspired the group members to kill him after having slain the zombies that were following him, eve though he had nothing. Absolutely nothing. One of the group members stood up against him, the others said nothing. The guy who didn't want to kill him, warned him via the chat, but he only replied that there was nothing else he could do, I think, that, or he didn't even read it.
So when he got to the church, they killed all the zombies, and all of a sudden, the inspiring shot him. He simply shot him. Just for fun. What do you think about that? I think it sucks, that was rude and completely uncalled for, he was not threat to them at all. He had no ammo, no food, and just ran from a horde of 25 zombies. I think the guy who made that vid is an idiot. An utter fool. Punchwood Soarvivors: Do it better! MUCH better, if you don't want to bring this shame over the name of this website and PauL's channel.
So, once again, what do you think about this? Do you have any topics you want to discuss?
With best regards, N1k0145!

But does anyone want to share his oppinion on those 2 DayZ topics I proposed, or maybe post his own topic and oppinion for discussion?
With best regards,

As for the church bandit, I really dislike such people. If you're going to be a bandit, fine, but portraying to be friendly and then betraying someone's trust I find abhorrent.
As for the changes, I would love to get my hands on a ghillie suit!

Look for me in game (Rusti8ullitole). I logged out in Pusta.
I have the female skin by the way...for all the reasons you describe. If there is cosmetic chargen, I try to make her look as much like my partner as possible. (She's purty)

By the way, let's discuss this for a few posts: I think those guys are pretty good at this game. They get in, take everything they need, shoot every threat and get out of town in 5 minutes. 5 minutes. That is pretty impressive, isn't it?

Those guys do seem to have a pretty good handle on things. We should definitely get a bunch of soarvivors together and build ourselves a vehicle sometime.

I feel like we're going a bit off-topic however.

So, I think the people with the helicopter were playing quite professional. I already described why, but what do you think about these people?

And new topic: I'm quite glad they removed the bandit skins. Why? They had the German flag on one of the arms. That's kind of racist, considdering that the guys with the German flag are the annoying bandits who ruthlessly kill anyone unlucky enough to cross their path and rob their stuff. What do you think about this?
