DayZ Diaries: Day 8

DayZ Diaries: Day 8

As usual I logged in to JUST do some stuff quickly – chop some wood, build some walls to replace the shed at my hill, nothing too big. The friendly Finns were announcing they’d come for a visit – how nice, maybe they bring something cool to … err … eat. So when I heard them honking I unlocked the door for them … … and was shot almost instantly and with great precision. WTF? They quickly assured me it wasn’t them but some player named Indiana Jones who was sniping from the adjacent forest and must have actually waited [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 7

DayZ Diaries: Day 7

Allright, we are finally at it! I am gonna spare you the incredibly boring details of what seemed to be an eternity of getting stuff, carrying around stuff, carrying back other stuff, learning how to set a new plot pole after I died (which is really annoying), trying to build walls that wouldn’t look as if a squirrel on speed placed them (there is one particular corner that really looks messed up) and gonna share what I’ve learned from it instead: Choosing a place not too far from the beach obviously has pros (which is why I did it) and [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 6

DayZ Diaries: Day 6

As there will be base building pretty soon I split that first part and make it a separate chapter – let’s call it an interlude. So, this is just about me doing my usual thing… So, I went into the game planning for it to be for like an hour or so, just getting some supplies, maybe go crowbar-hunting a bit – nothing too time consuming. Found myself at the airstrip again and being shot by AI. Hmm. Same old. Spawned near Kamyshovo and found a nice working pickup on the way. Uh, thanks, game! Morph flew over me and [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 5

DayZ Diaries: Day 5

Again I will cover several days in this chapter. From the point where the life as a survivor and the harsh environment starts getting to me to where I become the queen of my very own  hill (yes, pun intended). So, we finally start base building – very, very slow and small… But let’s start at the beginning: After I had my morale completely devastated and was about to rage-quit (mainly because sucking in front of other people isn’t exactly my idea of a fun time – yes, I am a girl, go ahead and mock me!) I went back [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 4

DayZ Diaries: Day 4

This is actually going to cover a few days with very short jumps into the game – not worth a separate article on each of them. But we will have some player interaction … and a lot of peaks and valleys – so to speak. Also, as I am actually progressing in getting a grasp on the game (which was the whole point of the exercise) I will not focus so much on every piece of random crap I pick up but more on other things – like player interaction. Because I apparently don’t have the whole island to myself [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 3

DayZ Diaries: Day 3

So, after yesterday’s adventure wasn’t so much adventurous but kinda lame on my part I thought I give it another try today … doing some small stuff (weapon, vehicle, …), nothing too difficult, just one or two hours … wow, was I in for a surprise! Also: Someone on the server must have really pissed off the AI – and they were taking it out on me. Only. On. Me. I don’t really remember how many times I died but as I was doing it mostly in the same place I counted like 7 or 8 me-s when I logged [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 2

DayZ Diaries: Day 2

Well, due to some ghosts-in-the-machine-issues I actually had to wait a week to play again. But I am still on a mission: To rid the island of Chernarus from the bitch AI. And so my journey continues … … actually, it starts from the beginning as I was killed last time. Whatever. Spawned somewhere in the middle of nowhere and ran towards some buildings. Right in the first one I found a hatchett and some stuff. Terrific beginning. Axed a bold zombie that was thinking (or whatever these guys do) it could mess with me. He really had it coming.. [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 1

DayZ Diaries: Day 1

Well, as the rest of the xp4t-lers are playing Battlefield 4 (traitors!) I have the whole Epoch-server to myself. Okay, except for the zombies. And the AI. Angry bitch AI (from hell). So I made it my personal mission to wipe them from the island. Because, you know, I can. Here we go. Oh, by the way: I suck at DayZ. Don’t know why, just do. Day 1: (Actually, it’s day two, but I completely forgot what I did yesterday, so … nevermind.) Spawned at the southern coast, immediately was chased by zombies. Ran along my favorite city (Komarovo – [...]
