    THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE ZOMBIE EVENT!

    REWARDS WILL BE GIVEN OUT ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18TH




    [​IMG]


    We are once again running our famous Zombie Survival event.

    • YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR CHARACTERS SKILLS OR ITEMS BEING EDITED IN ANY WAY. YOU WILL CONTROL A "ZOMBIE AVATAR" DURING THE EVENT.

    • DUE TO THE SHORT DURATION OF THIS EVENT, PLAYERS WILL BEGIN WITH NEAR GM SKILLS
    OBJECTIVES
    This is just an interim run of the event. There are no objectives. The top 50 players will receive a small reward for participating.

    *While the Zombie event is running, type [z or [zombieland to access to the zombieland UI. To speak in the zombie general chat, type [zc messagehere



    NEVER PLAYED ZOMBIELAND BEFORE?

    See the following video tutorial here. The main mechanics in the video are the same. However, you will start with less skills in this version of the event!

    YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FAQ INFORMATION IN THE VIDEO CAPTION! IT IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY IF THINGS GOING WRONG BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!


    ZOMBIELAND FAQ

    Q: Do I need to bring a finished character, regs and stuff for this?
    A: No, a character is provided with a particular starting skill set and gear.


    Q: Can I wear special clothing into the event?
    A: Yes you can, but by doing so, you accept full responsibility for the clothing if it goes missing. We will not replace lost clothing.


    Q: How do I chat with other players?
    A:Type [ZC MESSAGEGOESHERE


    Q: Do I need to toggle my skills and stats to up?
    A: Yes. There is no skill cap while in zombieland. All of your skills start very low and you must train them up.


    Q: What keys do I need to bind?
    A: You must bind !1 through !9 to your directional numbered keypad located near your right hand. Bind !1 to 1 and so on.


    Q: Why am I attacking so slow? I can't even kill a single zombie!
    A: This event relies on an arcade-like approach to fighting where you actually have to AIM your attacks. All weapons attack super slow by default for this event because you can say !1, !2, !3, etc up to !9 to attack in that direction (as shown in the video). You can swing quite fast this way, but the slower the weapon, the slower you swing. If you try to swing too fast, you simply create extra delay for yourself.


    Q: When I press any key, Razor always executes the same macro.
    A: This is a Razor glitch that happens every once in a while. Unfortunately the only solution that I have found is to restart your computer.


    Q: What do I do if I spawned on a cliff or in a wall and can't get out?
    A: Say "I don't want to live" and you will respawn. YOU MUST INCLUDE THE APOSTROPHE (i.e. "I dont want to live" will NOT work!)


    Q: Where do I get gear?
    A: Gear spawns on zombies and corpses, with a low chance to spawn magical weapons and armor (NOTE: WEAPONS AND ARMOR MUST BE ID'ed USING Item Identification SKILL FOR YOU TO GET THE BONUS!)


    Q: Why do I only spawn with 5 bandages?
    A: The zombie apocalypse happened fast and you didn't have time to prepare for it, sorry.


    Q: I just keep dying over and over and over.
    A: Yes, lots of casualties happen in a zombie apocalypse... BUT eventually you will be somebody who happened to appear in a more defensible position and you will be able to get a foothold and survive (and after getting some gear and possibly friends, zombies will be a much smaller threat)!


    Q: What can I do about the gank squads running around killing me a lot.
    A: Some players decide to hunt other players, and this is allowed. Teaming up is your best bet. Remember, skills aren't lost when you die, so you are always progressing!


    Q: Are there any mounts?
    A: No mounts at all!

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For all those that haven't done Zombieland before; you need to set up a custom hotkey profile to play it. Here is a guide:

    Basically set a Arcade profile so that you have hotkeys mapped on your numberpad that say the msg "!#" corresponding to each number of your numberpad.

    http://www.uoforum.com/threads/arcade-mode-beginners-guide.48487/

    Here is a FAQ from a previous Zombieland Survivor event:

    http://www.uoforum.com/threads/zombieland-mini-event-8-15-2015.64317/#post-456747

    @Shane can correct me if I am wrong. I am assuming this zombie event will have a lot of the same mechanics.

    Yeah the antidote and everything is all in.
    Adam's talking about adding in a feature where you can get sick and you have XX time to live and you can pass the sickness onto other people haha. It will be fun.
