    This is a compilation of FAQ we have gotten from the community thus far, mostly from Discord, forums and Facebook. Q: When will the game be available? A: The release date is set for May 15th, 2019 as of now. Q: If I own other Nether titles, do I still need to buy the game? A: Yes, you will. We are a completely new development team working on this game so our work should be treated as such. Though the essence of the game is still the same, a lot of development and time has been put into it so it only makes sense that it is made it as a new game. Q: How much is the game going to cost? A: The game will be sold initially for $15. Q: Will the game still use the same engine (Unreal 3)? A: Yes and there are no plans for this to be changed. Q: Will there be free weekend? A: Though we have nothing specifically planned for now, this is something we would like to do in the future. Q: Will there be the option to host your own server? A: Yes. You will be able to host your own server at will, with up to 64 slots. Q: Since there will be Global Inventories, how will they port among all the servers? A: Initially Global Inventories will be server-based. That means that your GI and the items you collect will only be available on the server you've collected them. Q: What kind of Server Options will be available for people who host their own servers? A: We will announce this soon. Q: Will there be any Pay-to-Win aspects (i.e. buying weapons and PvP gear for real money currency)? A: No. All the purchasable items for real money will be cosmetic only. Q: Will Factions work the same way they currently do? A: For the time being, yes. You will still have the ten factions that you can join and they have their own standing amongst them. Q: Will items be visible while on the ground or will they be in containers? A: They will be in containers for the time being. Q: When a player dies, do their items all drop on the ground or do they have a "corpse menu"? A: Items from players will all be on the ground upon death. Q: Will there be new weapons and monsters? A: Yes to both. Q: What about previous special gamemodes that were released (arena, play as Nether, etc...)? A: We do want to bring these in, but not for the time being. Q: Will you respawn at the same spot you logged out or will you get a new spawn/Safezone Spawn? A: For now we are keeping it logging back where you last connected Q: Will there be Weather? A: Unfortunately for the time being we will not add this. Though it is possible on the engine, we would first need to test how it would perform on your end before putting it in. And since one of our main focus is performance and optimization, we will not add this for now and we have no ETA on when we revisit this, if we do. Q: Will there be vehicles in the game? A: We are in the process of fixing them and readding them into the game. The buggy you get as a reward for capturing areas in the Wastelands is still available. Q: Will Character level port from server to server? A: No. Since every server will have different settings, this would not make sense. Q: Will Account level port from server to server? A: No. For the time being it will be independent.

    Poor Poor Poor @Lauchboy, Another weak attempt at trying to bend what others do to your liking. TSK TSK TSK. So many brain cells, so much wasted thought. You do, however, make a valid point. THIS GAME IS DYING. It's a slow death, yes, but it is like a turkey in the oven. 'Stick a fork in it, It's DONE.' @GENETICZZ. Like @DNI_Adrian said, You can put a ton of LIPSTICK on that PIG. But it's still a pig. You like to post that little graphic on how many players there are. Funny, from what I can see on your little chart that there are 1500 fewer players around than there were last May. Oh, and by the way, I didn't say that this is a remake of Aftermath, what I did say was the zombies models are the same, the buildings are the same. Oh and also, the terrain features are the same. Artemis Knives would be happy to see that he was copied in this manner. Speaking of Aftermath, this game is going the same direction that that game did. OBSCURITY! Hell, they even did the same thing that this group is doing. Changing their game mode to a PAY FOR PLAY as the new game will have to be purchased to be able to play. Will I bite on that bait? In a word, NO. They have a much better game engine that they are going to use for that game, for which I commend them. Maybe if they had applied that better engine to this game, it would still be viable. As for 'Weakend' Events, They are nothing more than more lipstick on this pig. I laugh when I see the tagline of BUY DOUBLE GC!! BUT YOU CAN ONLY GET IT FROM OUR WEBSITE!! I guess Steam doesn't pay them enough to run that special through that site anymore. Sad. I'm not going to buy anything for this game anymore. I got cheated out of a whole day for the Easter Event because they put up the message 'SORRY! THERE ARE NO SERVERS AVAILABLE IN THIS AREA!' That is a slap in the face of those of us that actually put money into this game. I carried an extreme account for almost 2 years. In that time I also purchased private servers. What a 'thanks for your support' message to get. All I can see now is this game is all about how much $$$ they can get before they pull the plug. I was going to pack up and leave this fish out of water, but I think I will stay in the background and watch this fish flop around on the dock until it is dried up. It's a sad sad thing indeed. OH... BTW @Lauchboy How do you like my color scheme now??? And if you don't like it, I've got 2 words for you. SUCK IT!!! (thank you Degeneration X for that line)

    Maybe I am not making myself say this clear enough for you to understand, so I will try this one more time in the simplest of terms: I DO NOT want to play survival!! I know where it is. I know how it works. I DON'T LIKE IT. PERIOD. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH LIPSTICK to put on THAT PIG to MAKE ME LIKE IT!!! The devil will put in AC and hand out ice cream cones first!!! UNDERSTAND THAT???? Alll you guys are doing with this push push push to make the game "your way" is run people off. Im sick of hearing what the game was like "back in the day"... things change, times change!! My GOD STOP CRYING ABOUT THE PAST. @GENETICZZ IF WANT to play PVP, I know where it is. I also know where the other games I play are that ARE PVP. I don't need your "help" nor "encouragement" to play them, nor to change which game mode I wish to play. I know plenty more than I played from watching ICE9 's channel on twitch a while back. SO please don't act like I don't understand what survival is, or how it works beyond my very limited play of it. I STILL DID NOT LIKE IT. GET OVER IT. Not every one likes the same things you do., and there isn't a damn thing you can do ( especially cramming it down their throats every couple months) that is going to change their minds!

    After 8 days of intense matches and instant classic matches, we are ready to move on to the next stage of the Supercup! From the 30 teams participating, 16 have moved on to the KNOCKOUT STAGE, where each match will decide the team's fate; You win, or you're out! The teams that have qualified were split into two POTS. POT 1 has the group leader from each of the 6 groups, PLUS the two BEST Runner-Ups in those groups. The other Runner-Ups and best 3rds are all on POT 2. The confrontations will be a team from POT 1 versus a team from POT 2. The pots are as follow: Colors: EUROPE, AMERICAS, ASIA On this stage, we will know BEFORE the next opponents you will be facing as it will take a traditional knockout bracket format from now on. That also means that by LOSING a match, the team will be ELIMINATED from the Supercup. We will also be announcing the prizes for the Champions on the stream. Server location, which is a huge question in your guys' mind will also be explained on the stream tomorrow and we will hear your feedback on it. Don't miss it! Where to watch: http://twitch.tv/HeresChupa Stream time: 5PM (Central European Standard Time) 11PM (Hong Kong Time) 12PM/Noon (Brazilian Standard Time)

    I loot to make money. Survival loot is not the same as on other servers, and you have no GI. Also friendly fire can kill you even if it is an accident. So, EVERYTHING would change if I were to 'just get a server' in Survival.
