Forum Rules IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

On August 20 2009, Brainstock moved to a new board. What you are currently looking at is only an archive of old threads - everything is now taking place in the new forums.

Please switch to the new board now: http://s1.zetaboards.com/brainstock/

The reasons for this move were several unfixable issues with the old board. Examples are broken styles, missing features like a "find all posts by this member", no search feature, the lack of root access. No admins had access to the admin logs, for instance.

By moving, these and several other issues have been fixed, the forums had been improved. The admins now have root access and therefore unremovable logs to improve admin accountability, and we're now using ZetaBoards instead of InvisionFree, which offers a regularly updated software and lots of new features.

If you are seeing this message for the first time and are not here to look at archived threads, this is what you need to do: First, register on the new board. Then, if you had been registered on the old board and if you are part of a group or had any special access privileges, make sure to request your previous permissions here.

Should you encounter any links pointing to the old board (archive), please try to update them. Thank you for your help!

Hi everyone,
I'm a stranger to these forums but not to Urban Dead. I've been playing UD on and off for almost 2 years now (I play with 3 accounts, all in different suburbs of course). I've found this game to be entertaining at times and then boring at other moments. It always seemed like there was no hard-core game play and no matter how many zombies or humans you killed (revived/infected) it would not affect the game at all. There was no clear winner on either side, and things became repetitve after a while...

While scrolling through the UD wiki a few days ago I was searching similar games to UD area and came across one that was exactly like UD but 10x better! It has more features, more cooperation, and the game is played in rounds that last a few weeks and at the end - ONE SIDE WINS! Survivors either win by researching a cure or zeds win by destroying/killing everyone. The game is free of course, and most of the interface is identical to Urban Dead. If you would like to check out the game and see for yourself the link is:

http://www.quarantine2019.com/

Also many of the players are former Urban Dead players that found a better liking to this game as well. In the game's offical forum, one of the posts was the major difference between the two games so if you would like to view the various responses on the forum to compare.

http://forum.quarantine2019.com/index.php/topic,2881.0.html

And you may ask why am I posting this on your forum? Because I'm trying to get the word out to UD's game base because I think many players will find this game to be more fulfilling.

Very respectfully,
EDH

P.S. If you do make an account on Quarantine my player name is Evildiehard, so if you ever see me give me a shout! biggrin.gif

The 'no metagaming in IRC or on forums' rule there really kills it for me. 95% of the fun around here is from events, parties, raids, etc. Any idea why the kaibosh on communications of that sort?

The rules are kind of draconian...
QUOTE
1.1 - Play for your side. If you want to help the zombies, play a zombie. If you want to help the citizens, play a citizen. "Death cultists" or "Zombie spies" are not allowed at the moment. This means that stealing or destroying items, debarricading and/or opening the doors on purpose, broadcasting the location of safehouses is not allowed.
1.2 - No team killing. If you don't want to be on the side you're on, don't team kill. Sure, you are frustrated you got converted, but they are playing like the game is intended. If you want to get converted, go hang where the side you wish to join is.

Weird, I've already had two real time street brawls with zeds, both resulting in me getting eaten 795256.gif It's true that there are rules against pking/death culting/etc but I like to think (For pking since that's always a valid side in any zombie outbreak) that's just because they're still working out the mechanics.

I played the game a little but I haven't made up my mind yet. I like some of the ideas but really need to playa few more rounds to make a good judgement. I like the victory side of things but dont see how they will keep interest when everyone goes back to lv1 at the end of the round. The lack of metagame means does make me lose interest though.


ps - I also found it funny that there are players there who actively zerg and grief in UD posting on the Q2019 forum complaining how "In UD people shoot them".

That right there killed any desire I might have had to play it.

Imposing arbitrary restrictions like this is stupid, and anyone who would attempt it is naïve. If something is possible, people will do it. If you don't want players doing something, make them unable to do it – and then don't be surprised if they object to the restriction. Rules against it will only stop those who are inclined to follow rules – and those people would be unlikely to engage in those behaviours in any case.

Which remind me… I realised recently that one of the things I like most about Urban Dead is its pointlessness – just like real life. wink.gif

Actually almost all of us have given it a try (I gave it a few before you spammed the forums and another after): We just didn't like it. The whingy rules about about P/ZKing and the complaints on the forum indicate that it's a game by whining UD failures, for whining UD failures (Key complaints about UD seem to be 'They shot me, but I was hooooooman! sad.gifsad.gifsad.gif' and 'But U can't WINORZ TEH GAME!?!?!?!?!'). Plus the interface is as ugly as a bulldog with Freddie Krueger burn scars.
