So, I just recently got into Day Z. I've had ARMA II for awhile but just haven't got around to trying Day Z until recently. Its definitely a fun game mode. It takes a lot of patience though. Anyway, today, I had my first "murder". I wouldn't call it that though cause I killed the guy who was stealing my bus. He apparently was returning it when I shot him, but that doesn't explain the fact that he was driving right at me. I checked his body and he was just a newbie. So maybe he was telling the truth, but I don't really believe it. This is the first deadly confrontation I've had with other players

Yeah, I just thought I should share this little story with whoever is interested in reading it.

How did you know he was stealing your bus? Can you communicate with people in game?

I knew other players effected how DayZ played, but I never considered murdering other players if they were getting too dangerous. But its a survival game, so you survived! Yay!

What ended up doing you in that particular play session?

Don't stream Dayz. People are notorious for stream sniping in that community. I thought about streaming it, then I saw all the stream snipers... .Pretty horrible people play Dayz. I would trust no one, no matter what they say. I watched a video of a guy who traveled and raided a supermarket with another guy, then he said he was going to log off. As soon as the other dude turned his back, he blasted him and took his stuff.

Fight the dead... Fear the living.

Makes sense I guess in a bare knuckle survivor world.. Still there is some safety in numbers, but since everyone is obfuscated you can sort of do whatever.

I meant to say, some pretty horrible people play Dayz, not all of them are horrible.

For sure.. If I check it out ill make sure to be careful. Does the game/world reset every so often or is it persistent?

I could tell he was stealing my bus because when I went to look for it, it was gone. He made the the mistake of trying to come back to the same area, and that's when I shot him through the windshield.

I am currently still alive on that character. I ended up driving the bus into a forest, getting out, and logging off. I'm hoping when I check back today my bus is still where I left it as cars do not despawn unless something happens with the server or it gets destroyed, at least as far as I know.

Interesting to know, thanks BR! Sounds like a cool time.

@Missle_Drop_Kick: That guy in the video was a bastard. I guess I should expect when I play DayZ that anyone would jack me at any moment. Hmmm, interesting.
