I could have sworn they said your progress and items would carry. I'm really pissed off that all of my 63 gold weapons, blueprints and $20 mil will just be gone. that was the whole reason i bought the $80 edition. anyone else?

i pretty damn sure you can import your character but i have no clue about items and your 20million(holy crap!) however it would be idiotic if the devs didn't take this into account.

honestly if that's the way the handled the importing, it could be to get rid of all the modded guns that killed everything in one shot and the huge build up of money those players had. Most the time no matter what all I run into people with those guns when I play with random people and not with my friends when they want to play.

I haven't imported my character yet on the character select screen, I went for the new fifth character and hes very over powered in my opinion.

to get rid of the modded guns that's fine i don't like them anyway i love my bleeding blunt speaker i found that weapon and never used anything else again. i need my money for med kits i'm tired of people killing me whether it's with the m72 or with a damn grenade.

and what about the blueprints? it's f'ed up enough that i had to go on ps home just so i wouldn't be missing a little part of the game. i really hate the fact that i wont be able to have the ripper mod or exploding meat bait blueprints.

i believe they said at pax that all progress carries over. so far the only two people playing it today have told me only your level carries over. last i checked 1/3 is not all. so i'm gonna start the game with lvl 60 zombies and no weapons to use that's bullshit

well to be realistic in some way at the very beginning with the prolog now that I have been thinking about it the military would have stripped you of everything on you. Chances of finding the stuff on the ship while its going down would be slim but could get it back. Then on the island while washed ashore your missing everything you got on the ship. So all your stuff would be at the bottom of the ocean, if your lucky washed ashore but not very realistic if it did with you.

I know it sounds stupid going based off that logic and that's the logic they went with. Hell I could be way off since I didn't really pay attention to what would carry over, my understanding was only your level would from months ago before they even started teasing us about the game.

you can't use realism as logic when the game isn't realistic to begin with.

the quote from riptides pax booth i saw says "dead island will allow you to continue your progress" . your progress is everything you've done the weapons, the money, the blueprints and exp even choices made on side mission i.e. choosing to take that woman to the light house or finding makimbo's wife. last i check bioware does not say your mass effect progress will carry over they say your moral choices carry over.
