  1. That is a good point Null. I hate humans that hide in glitches. Cowards. Techland would need to fix the glitch spots before readjusting the abort game loophole. The abort game loophole just bothers me so much because when it is used by the other team 10 - 15 min. into a match, that essentially amounts to a waste of my time. But seriously, humans who hide in glitch spots are stupid children who ruin the experience for other human players, and Night hunters, who enjoy playing pvp legitimately. This also highlights the second request I made in my OP. When I join another game, as a human, only to discover them hiding in a glitch spot or blockading doorways with drops, I leave the glitch or tear down the DROP wall only to be kicked out and given a defeat for quitting. This punishes me for wanting to play pvp as it was intended. I hate those players who do that.
  2. SomeOldDude, you are exactly right. Your sports analogy about forfeiting is spot on to my line of thinking.
  3. jcks, I never said anything about removing the ability to quit an online match. Stay on topic. And your "solution" is exactly the same as the one I proposed. Good job. Personally I think it is more fair to give the other side the win than to give them nothing which is what the abort game currently gives. Edit: Also your edit argument against it doesn't make any sense. I am speaking of players who abuse the game abort loophole to avoid losing the match. The "winning team" would have gotten the points and thus had their ranking increase if the other team had not game aborted. I can't think of a reason why a player, who is about to win a game, would use the game abort loophole. I will admit that if a player does have an internet issue that causes the abort then your right it would be a "false win". But I have played a lot of BtZ matches on ps4 without that being an issue. Again the whole point of this thread is to call out the game abort loophole and getting kicked out immediately equals defeat. Please stay on topic.
  4. Dear Techland, I love the Be the Zombie mode for Dying Light but two things constantly ruin my enthusiasm for it. The first and foremost is players abusing the ability to "Abort" the game when they are losing. This happens to both Night Hunters and Survivors. I am sure I am not the only player who has been on the verge of winning a match only to have the other side abort the match at the last second to avoid a loss. A potential solution to this could be that once a point is scored (either a full nest is destroyed or a human survivor is killed) that the game is "official" and the side that did not abort the match would be given the victory. Exactly how a win is currently awarded when a team legitimately quits a match. The second item I would like you to readjust is getting kicked out of a match currently equals a defeat as a human survivor. This is particularly annoying when I load into a match and am kicked out in the first seconds of loading in. This counts as a defeat for me even though I did not contribute to the match or quit out on my own. I suggest that if a player is kicked out within the first 10 to 15 seconds of joining the match it would count as an abort for that player but not a loss. I think that readjusting these two areas will greatly improve Be the Zombie mode and will further encourage more people to play and spread that word about this great game type. Thank you for your time and attention. PS looking forward to playing "The Following", got a release date yet?!?
  5. Go to the dying light reddit page. There is a list of active docket codes on the right side of the page.

    Hud Options Need To Be Present For Users.

    At minimum, once a player has reached level 24 for power and agility there is no need for the bars to remain on screen. I don't mind the other HUD details being on screen but at least having the option to remove any/all aspects of the HUD would add further immersion to the game at the player's discretion. Please add this option soon Techland!
  7. I play against N.H.s on hard mode exclusively but have been away from the game for about a month. At the start of July I was a rank Ultimate Survivor on ps4. Last night I played a match to see the new changes to the BtZ mode only to discover my rank is now Prey. WTF happened? Has this happened to anyone else? The only thing I can think of is that I restarted my single player campaign during that month to play the story mode with the bow. Which was a lot of fun and completely changed the game. What really bothers me is that the warning that comes up when you choose "Restart from quest" clearly reads, "Player development will be kept". I was looking forward to getting some more gold tier weapons as I am sure most players know that NH fights are the only place to get those weapons. I have submitted a ticket to techland support but wanted to know if anyone else has had this issue as well.
  8. I noticed yesterday that hammers seem to have disappeared from the game entirely. I couldn't find any two handed sledgehammer or emperors glow in any shops of any color. I'm a lvl 25 survivor and remember previous to patch 1.07 there were hammers in shops. Has anyone else noticed this as well?
  9. One minor thing that constantly bothers me (although it is a very small concern) is what Kyle Crane says when you kill the Night Hunter. He says lame dialogue lines like "Did we kill it?" (even though I just killed the NH) and "Thank God it's dead." Weak $hit. These lines are disappointing especially when you get a rain death on the NH. But when you drain the NH of stamina he says more aggressive lines of dialogue like "DIE!" and "I'll show you the light!". Getting a kill on the NH feels amazing as a player so I wish Crane's dialogue reflected what I feel as a player. Am I the only one who feels this way? Let me know what better lines of dialogue you think Crane should say upon killing the NH. Good night and Good luck!

    Always Begin Game Inside Bozak Elevator

    I had this happen to me a few times and here is how I got around spawning in the elevator each time I start the game. Start the game as you normally would, either by hitting continue or play campaign. Once you spawn in bozaks elevator leave through either the slums or old town exits. Once you are in either area change your tracked quests to a quarantine zone mission. (Parking Lot for instance). I have found this works for me consistently on single player. One thing I have noticed though is that when I join another players game I am forced to track the party leaders quest. So that means if that party leader is tracking bozaks horde and then you quit back to a single player game chances are good that you will spawn inside bozaks elevator once again. I agree that it is frustrating to spawn in bozaks elevator time and time again. I wish that they would change where you spawn in game and not have it be tied to a quest. Try that fix outlined above and let me know if it works. Good night and Good luck!
  12. I have earned the bow and all arrow types on my own so I can guide you through this difficult dlc. All I ask in return is that you let me kill you at the end. I've got a mic and it will be easier if you have one as well. My gamer tag is Van Doomas. I'll be online at midnight CST tonight. Good night and good luck. I earned the trophy yesterday. Thanks everyone. I would like to remove this post but not sure how. If someone could let me know I would appreciate it.
