Help me convince my friend to buy DayZ

Recommended Posts

Joshie    71

I am trying to get my friend to buy DayZ but he is a bit skeptical on purchasing it. He just played for about an hour and he said the game isn't that bad. I've tried to tell him good things about the game but he brushed it off (it triggers me). 

Help me try to convince him to buy DayZ and play DayZRP with everyone. I need all the help I can get.

Show him some of @Sam Fields videos. that will probably plant the seed in his brain, then maybe bring up that dayz only costs around $30 USD. 

Just in case you cant find Sams videos ill link one.

Hope this helps.

Is it on the steam summer sale? If so point it out to him.

Otherwise... Gift it to him. Then he -can't- deny your moves.

It is but not for much its like 15% off, (like $33 now compared to normal 38.99) 

And I would gift him it but im probably going to donate to DayZRP so, rip money lol

Personally i wouldn't donate to dayzrp, i'd much rather have another person to share my war stories with rather than sitting on my hands in stary most of the time. But that's just me.

Tbh it's not that good of a game, and a lot of people don't like it. Personally If he doesn't want to play it don't push him into wasting his money.

I personally disagree, but you're more than welcome to not play it.

Shame that the only good RP on this server comes from PAU.

Put a gun to his head and force him. To be honest he has the right to be a bit skeptical. This game doesn't get a lot of updates and can get a bit stale at times. However the community more than makes up for that most of time and keeps it interesting. Show him some videos and keep talking it up. But also remember this game and the community isn't for some people. Worst comes to worst buy it for him you can always donate later.

It is a pretty horrible game, but it's the people that make it great. Out of the 6 times I've died in the past week on DayzRP. 4 of the times were from Dayz crashing, glitching out, bugs. One other time was I was in a firefight with my group, 1 person crashed and the other one lagged out and had to DC. Leaving only me causing me to die. And another was from me randomly dying after contracting hypothermia for like 5 seconds. I had full blood and was healthy. It's been raining for like 5 f-ing days straight on the server

THIS

As a game, DayZ is a massive pile of shit, and for its asking price of $44.00 NZD, it's not worth it. I bought into the hype when the game was released, as I played a lot of mod, and that is the reason I own it. 2.3k of my 2.4k hours have been spent on RP, and if you're friend is interested in joining an RP community, that is the ONLY way I'd justify getting him to buy it.

$44.00 NZD for a buggy, clunky, repetitive, boring game that has been in alpha for 5 years, and they have the audacity to lower its price by only a mere 15% on steam sales? I wouldn't bother, IMO.

Dayz is probably one of the worst best games out there, show him some videos of amazing pvp moments or hilarious rp moments on this server, I'd suggest try watching silos videos.

Your friend has every right to be skeptical of the game. The devs are kind of a joke and updates are hardly pushed out as often as they should be. A lot of people have well over 1,000 hours in the game and they enjoy pretty much every moment.

I'm sitting at around 960 hours and in my personal opinion, roleplay is a big factor in how much I enjoy the game. Yeah, it's fun to occasionally join public servers to kill whoever you want, but RP just adds a lot more to the game. Whether you're trying to enjoy a play (the video below) or you're in a firefight, you're being taken hostage or you're just messing around with one another, it's always fun. You kind of just have to have the right attitude about it if that makes sense. 

One of the funnest encounters I had was when I was still pretty new to the server. Thanks to @Pepe Jonesfor that.
