But there was nothing to "misread".
75% of what they said on that Steam page was completely false.
I honestly think this game was dead on arrival.

How *bleep*ing arrogant those people sound. They 'imagined it to themselves'? People imagined that features you listed weren't in the game? Utter trash. I hope they're never allowed to use Steam as a way to sell their garbage games again.

Been following this for a while now and didn't expect Valve to actually go ahead and pull the plug on this obvious scam. This business is atrocious and I wonder if Valve will refund gamers (probably will).

It goes far beyond the steam page, they had posted misleading pictures, the entire game is for all intents and purposes in alpha stages yet developers say they just got out of Beta, this entire game is just a mod being marketed as a fully released game and they don't even try to hide it (you can still see several ingame assets that belong to the War Inc. The game this was modded off).

It's just trying to get in on Dayz success before the standalone game is released and whats even more appalling is that people will actually defend this shit on the forums. Goes to show you that people will defend anything.

I can't believe anyone would even buy this. Why can't you just buy Arma 2 and download the DayZ mod instead of paying $20 for a reskinned version of War, Inc that has one map?

After going to the warz forum and finding people pulling defenses out of their ass just to justify their purchase, I honestly just want to burn the internet. Burn it all.

I'd also like to take the time to mention that they spelled "post-apocalyptic" wrong on the Steam page.

You'd think that you'd at least be able to spell-check.

I also read something a couple months ago (on Reddit, funnily enough) that said that their Terms and Conditions was copy/pasted straight from League of Legends.

Looks like the Reddit post has been deleted since, but I did find a Joystiq article about it.

For anyone that doesn't know much about the Warz controversy, here is a bigass blog that breaks down everything these scumbags where pulling off. Fortunately you can just read the titles of each section as you scroll down since their pretty self explanatory.

It's a good read.

Can't believe I almost bought this game, and a little more surprised that I've heard quite a few saying The War Z is actually superior to DayZ. Thanks for informing my ignorant self!

As soon as I heard about the game I knew it was just a copy pasta to the success that DayZ is, so I refused to buy into it. I'm glad I avoided the game as it seems like things are just going down hill. It's unfortunate for anyone who purchased the game. I'm glad Valve listened to the community though.

Haha, oh wow.

Blatant cash grabs are always hilarious.

War Z is one of the most disgraceful things gaming has seen in the past decade, no exaggeration.

Ncjpr1993 A guy I know IRL actually tried to recruit me into a War Z clan he was starting. I was really surprised to hear him talk about how much better it was than Day Z when I had heard nothing but bad things about it.

I passed anyway because that guy is a dick.

From what I know, I'm very sure that this game has come out so soon is so that they beat DayZ in sales. It came out way the hell to early, and it still is far from when it SHOULD have been put into a beta release. It came out publicly in Alpha stage. Hammerpoint is racing to make a game and get money from the popularity of DayZ, before their game is out.
