Been a while since I posted here and since I'm playing DZ just a few days ago I decided to check the thread.

inb4 wall of text

First off there are many people saying on this thread that it's a "facebook" game and that it's a bad game because of that, I disagree completely. For a few years now there have been game like Evony, Travian, WoL and others that are f2p and rely on build times to do raids or build stuff. What most people hate is the Zynga business model which basically bottlenecks your ability to play the game with the "energy" consumption as you level your way up in the game and it slows you down to do things in the game. Games like Evony or WoL you could play for as long as you wanted if you waited the cooldowns after attacks and such but you didn't need to fork over cash necessarily. AG also has games that ask you for money for content, levels and so on and you don't bash on those games. The current gaming trend is for micro-transactions in games for DLC and extra content, its just the way developers implement it. Personally I like retail over f2p. Besides anyone who complains about f2p games really needs to think what they are looking for in the game. You come in AG to play short fun games free games and play casually that you check on them from time to time.

I comment on this because I've tried FB games and I do hate most of them because they try to squeeze the cash from you. DeadZone is not anything like Zynga games. I'm not a big fan of build,wait for the timer to run out and then keep building but DZ actually has decent build times and it lets you interact with the game. You personally control the raids and can do a fair amount of constant raids depending on the levels you wish to do. There's very little games that let you control the raids and play a "resident evil style" raid. I was actually impressed when I was the different gear and the way you can scavenge and manually do the raids considering its a free game and a "browser game"

So far I don't see it as a pay2win game. You don't need that much fuel to progress and they give you a fair amount to start with. What I do feel is that the PvP aspect is kinda bad and that the game is fairly easy after you get some decent gear. Also the "premium" content is expensive and it's just not worth to buy. There are other games that the "premium" content is less expensive to encourage people to spend a few bucks but its not the case here. Basically you can play with your crafted or scavenged gear and win over the AI. Another flaw that I see is that there's no concentrated community for the game since there's an AG build, a Kong build and etc and not too much feedback from ConArtist so that explains the lack of "in game friendship" or "clans".

Also this is a different concept from previous TLS games so I would give it a chance. So far I'm enjoying the game but I'm still near lvl10 for my leader so for the moment it's not a bad game.
