Can we keep persistence off please. I can think of a couple of impacting reasons why it shouldn't be on. Im gonna state my reasons, anyone else can add obviously but these are my reasons.

1. Freshies - every time someone dies, they are just gonna starve to death now cause they cant find any kind of food in the area when they respawn. So this is just gonna be a bunch of dead fresh spawns everywhere cause they cant find food.

2. poison - yesterday i ran into someone who wanted me to try their "sweet water". i had no idea what he was going on about but there was a orange in the house he was hanging out at. I ate it and moments later i started to feel cramps in my stomach, now idk if he sprayed it or not but someone sprayed the orange with disinfectant. So since persistence is on, food that was sprayed will still be there and no one can tell if it was sprayed or not. So now you can die from being sick and/or starving cause now you have to throw up in order to not be sick and throwing up you just start to starve so its a lose-lose situation.

3. Robberies - now that loot cant be found, there are gonna be a bunch of robberies for gear and food and much more. More report coming in cause the people who got robbed felt like it was just for gear. Ive seen a couple of robberies for food and such recently. Never caught names but that's not the point. The point is, people are gonna be starving or just scared to eat anything they find so they rob people for their food and water instead which will clutter the reports with "BadRP" or "no reason for robbery".

This is just my opinion on the topic. What does everyone else think about it?

This game is supposed to be hard. With persistence off there is zero challenge. Its harder to survive. YOu cant just spawn grab a backpack filled with food and turbo run across the map. You should have to search everything, pick apples and berries. ITs a survival game. It is intended to be hard.

The lack of food does seem a little extreme around the area where you spawn fresh. I died today, and have been able to keep myself from starving for 6 hours now only because of other people helping.

Edit: I agree rampage, though some middle ground would have been nice. Looting about 100 houses with the risk of meeting bandits is not at all fun, when there's nothing(!) in them

The only problem I am having is "You're stuffed. You're hungry. You're thirsty."

Other than that. I am having lots of fun. Survival.

I understand it is supposed to be hard but everyone is just gonna die of starvation now lol. My friend yesterday couldn't find any food and she died again after dying to the bugs in the game. Its impossible to find things now. And if you do find something to eat, you're scared to eat it cause someone could've sprayed it with disinfectant. Then you are really in trouble.

As stated above, this should not be easy. YOu should not be able to get fully geared in a matter of minutes/hours. It should be a long process.

2. poison - yesterday i ran into someone who wanted me to try their "sweet water". i had no idea what he was going on about but there was a orange in the house he was hanging out at. I ate it and moments later i started to feel cramps in my stomach, now idk if he sprayed it or not but someone sprayed the orange with disinfectant.

Ever hear of the expression never take candy from strangers? It is a reportable offense to do that. It is the equivalent of KOS. If you know who it is, record and report. Persistence though has nothing to do with this. It is a result bad people who wish to ruin the time of others..

3. Robberies - now that loot cant be found, there are gonna be a bunch of robberies for gear and food and much more. More report coming in cause the people who got robbed felt like it was just for gear. Ive seen a couple of robberies for food and such recently. Never caught names but that's not the point.

Well now robberies actually mean something. However, since at first it is hard to gear up bandits should pick and choose more carefully who they rob. The risk of them dying is greater now because of the challenge of gearing up again. Secondly as much as I agree there is unnecessary robberies people need to be more damn careful. Scout out towns first, don't just run around like a headless chicken. It is a survival game.

This is just my opinion on the topic. What does everyone else think about it?

Yes those are from cheaters that are loot cycling and should be reported and banned if caught. Nothing we can do about that expect find them and get rid of them.

Im just saying, atleast keep it off until they fix it a little more cause nothing is spawning. And if something does spawn, youre taking a risk by eating it.

There are berry bushes and apple trees in every town. As I said you have to be careful and take your time now. The zombie thing has been going on for almost 6 months now according to lore. You have to expect that canned food will be rare and that you will have to live off the land. You just need to take your time.

I thought it was going to be shit with persistence on, because of the no food.

But right now, I find food just like when it was off for some reason. Its almost even easier....

You cant get geared cause you die before you can find anything to keep you alive over a long journey like that. From elecktro to gm is a long trip, good luck not starving.

I have successfully made it from Berizino to Balota only on berries and apples and kept by energy and hydration full. It takes time but is possible. What this does is make people value their life. With persistence off too many yolo firefights and robberies.

Loot cyclers are crashing the server. Report them and it will make the crashes stop.

yeah i understand what you are saying. im just saying that the persistence needs to be worked on a little more cause alot of people cant find anything from all the encounters i had.

I have never had issues with persistence. If you are expecting to be fully geared double strapping M4's in one hour of gameplay then you will be disappointed. It should take days maybe longer to build up your character. Dayzrp is a marathon not a sprint. People are going to have to go back to jogging/walking a lot instead of full sprints. This is going to improve and make a more realistic RP situation.

Gone are the days of instant gratification ! So happy these days are here. It is going ot force alot of things. More value for life for sure.Bandits will have more of a reason to rob now though. It will also give the hero clans something to do , such as coastal bambi runs, to provide aid/escort to fresh spawns to help them survive. The actual point of the game ! Woot ?
