Dayz or Warz?

So, I have played a lot of Dayz, and this new game Warz that has recently come out I've only played a little. I was wondering what your thoughts were on the two games and why you personally prefer one over the other.

For Dayz I feel like the vehicles and realism simulation style are two good points to hit on. It's a lot of fun. But on the downside zombies tend to chase you for miles upon miles unless you have buildings to LoS and ditch them around. I also feel like the engine, and it could be due to it being a mod, runs very poorly. Considering the Warz, I love how great it runs and that the guns are a bit easier to find than in Dayz. Also, they have melee weapons, and not just an axe that can barely kill anything you equip from your toolbelt (because it's meant for chopping wood.) I think it is lacking in the field of vehicles, though this can be added. And also I don't get why they make each character unusable for an hour after death.

Now, what do you think? What advantages or disadvantages does each game have?


*note: I'm not trying to start hate on either game, just a friendly debate about our opinions.

@rocket2gun: "Foundation Release". Seriously?!? What happened to originality in the world? Copying game design isn't enough, now what we name our builds?


I'm far too cynical about WarZ to elaborate far too much, but I'll mention a few simple reasons why I've chosen to support the DayZ development over WarZ.
But most importantly note that this isn't DayZ fanism, I just have pure distrust in (whatever all the names of the company that's developing, or copying bunch of things to make WarZ is.)

To put it simple. I like the simplicity of DayZ. It's hardcore, you will die, you will lose your items, and it's actually buildt on a tweaked and already really stable engine. And it has a strong core team behind it, who has deep understanding in the community, isn't socially awkward, and actually has experience in game developement. And they have a serious company backing them up. WarZ isn't even remotely as serious as DayZ.

Easy put; I think dayZ has a more stable future, and is capable of adding more to the table.

I can see that. I actually just bought Warz last night and began to play it today. I'm already starting to lean more towards Dayz myself. I can't wait to see Dayz as its own standalone game.

day z is on a realistic simulator.
the war z is based on a arcade gaming engine.

dayz - 1 of every 3 people is a hacker.
the war z - 1 of every 50 people is a hacker and at best they can only use esp,chams and aimbot maybe where as in day z they can do anything, even post porn vids on your screen during game play.

currently both have their own advantages, i personalty like the war z because its arcade feel makes it easier to play and have more fun, plus as a bonus you don't run into hackers that can teleport any player any where at any time like in dayz.

battle eye is one of the best anti-cheat engines out there but with a game where it has no security a anti cheat system does nothing.

ALSO REMEMBER THAT DAYZ IS IN A HIGH BETA STAGE CLOSE TO RELEASE AND THE WAR Z IS IN A ALPHA STAGE (NOT STABLE)
THEY ARE ALSO NOTHING ALIKE AND THE WAR Z WAS NO A COPY OF DAY Z. THERE WERE MANY OPEN SANDBOX ZOMBIE SIMULATORS OUT BEFORE BOTH OF THEM.

I ALSO THINK DAYZ WOULD OF BEEN BETTER OFF MADE ON THE ARMA 3 ENGINE SINCE ARMA 3 IS BEING RELEASED NEXT YEAR WITH A REVAMPED ENGINE.

I only have War Z, but I think it's okay. It's only in it's Alpha stage, so I'm hoping it'll get better over time. I was considering buying Arma II while it was on sale for $15 just for Day Z, but decided to stick with War Z.

Who knows though, maybe I'll get Day Z to pass the time since it's more developed.
