H1Z1 warns players of full server wipe happening tomorrow

Can an apocalypse happen after the apocalypse? That’s the ironic state of affairs for H1Z1, which will be experiencing a full server wipe tomorrow with a new patch that promises to make the game more stable. The wipe will get rid of all inventory, characters, names, storage, and player-built structures while leaving account items intact.

Daybreak said that it’s taking measures to combat teaming in the solo versions of Battle Royale, such as possibly restricting vehicle use to one player apiece. The studio also warned players against violating the rules in these game modes: “We’ll be reviewing cases in which we think teaming is disrupting the game, and potentially taking action against those accounts.”

Good to know that in 2015 there is still one MMO studio out there brave enough to fight against the evils of socialization and teamwork.

Teaming? Why is it bad if people group together? Massively, some meat to the reporting would be nice for those who don’t play a game and don’t know about the dynamics …

Telos_  Agreed in general, however if there are massive new systems to implement and chunks of solid content then wipes are sometimes needed, but yeah, this is H1Z1.

Full wipes are always bad for a persistent game.  I’m glad i never got into this game, otherwise all my progress would’ve been wiped.

schlag sweetleaf My guess is CN & DBG will get to this at some point, but PS2 & EQN seem to have been called as primary targets.

The zombie subgenre of horror has waxed and waned in popularity just like every other subgenre. It hasn’t been one long continuous stream since Romero. Slasher films were all the rage in the 80’s more than any other type of horror. Then we went through a vampire phase. And then the “found footage” phase. Sure, zombie stuff was still popping up here and there but it was overshadowed by other fads. Now zombies are the current fad and vampires and slashers and werewolves and ghosts are taking a back seat. These classic horror themes wax and wane in popularity.

Karl_Hungus Mansemat Higgens agemyth Are you seriously trying to argue that the popularity of the cultural significance of George Romero on the Zombie genre that resulted in hundreds of movies and games which ultimately gave us the Walking Dead wasn’t popular enough? That a 40+ year old movie that caused all this isn’t popular enough to have caused all this media to proliferate as a result. Please…

Higgens Mansemat Karl_Hungus agemyth I know what a fad is. I can give you clear examples of them like members only jackets, cabbage patch kids, wearing your clothes backwards, or more recently, the ice bucket challenge. These are fads. Trying to imply that something that is popular and has been popular consistently for decades, is not a fad. That would be like trying to say that mobile phones are a fad because the iphone is popular when mobile phones have been popular for decades. That’s not a fad.
