    The 30th and final update before we move to DayZ Commander is going live tonight for DayZ Epidemic and it's bringing new challenges to the official server!

    The most important change is that the DayZ Epidemic Official server will be going PVP with this new update! This is going to bring added challenges for all players. This will be the first time DayZ Epidemic goes player vs player and will be a new experience for everybody. The server name will switch to PVP and there will be in game announcements to make sure you are all warned of the change. The admins will be online to answer any queries as well.

    The 2nd update which has been requested a lot over the last few weeks is the vehicle increase! The amount of vehicles have been increased and there is a surprise addition to the vehicles, we have added anti-air cars to help you fight off the UH1H patrols! Take your battle with the AI to the next level and remember, when you blow up an AI patrol it becomes a helicopter crash site releasing the rare loot around it.

    Other fixes include reported bug issues and the prison has received a slight makeover making it a more solid fortified structure. There was also a notable glitch in the sanctuary allowing players to escape under the back walls, this has now been fixed so your only way out is a rescue evac or fighting your way through the AI Hazmat squads, Good luck!

    The DayZ Epidemic Trailer has gone live on the site:

    We do apologize, PVP has been an untested area of our mod due to the original PVE rules. With our release on DayZ Commander approaching very soon, we feel this is a necessary move for the Official DayZ Epidemic server. We have spoken with a number of the testers who also agree. although there is discussion of moving the PVE to it's own server, at the moment we are focusing on the last few bugs and the release of DayZ Epidemic.

    and exactly as i thought...

    i joined the server a few mins ago to play another round...
    everyone spawned in the debug... caused by some hacker kiddies...

    this is where this pvp shit leads us...
    these hacker kids are always attracted to pvp servers... and most of the players on the epidemic server as it was pve also cant play pve...
    they asked all the time... is this really no pvp? what should i do here if i cant shoot other people...

    [sarcasm]
    these poor kill-on-sight bastards... cant play anything else...
    [/sarcasm]

    I understand you don't appreciate PVP servers and that is a fair opinion. A large percentage of players do enjoy and prefer PVP. The official server will be PVP to allow more players to get a feel for the mod, allow them to test it out and if we see a spike in hackers then we will take measures to prevent this.
    I understand your frustration and soon there will be a server to accommodate PVE players. The PVE server will become particularly popular once we receive the base building update. Right now we are preparing files for private servers. So more servers (including PVE) will pop up within the week.
