Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Bug

If you are new to the game, it is normal. Commo, your home just burned. You family died. You have no food nor drink. Zombies are everywhere. What morale you would like to have, huh? College party mood?

Put your mouse over the compound morale and it will tell you why it is low. Try to build resource container to increase the max storage of food and drink. if I remember correctly, you will need 7 days of food and water to make your survivors not feeling unsecured which you would never make until level 15 or so. So, it is generally an always-negative morale in the beginning.

If you do a lot of missions, there should be a mission completion bonus cap at 25% to make them a lot happier. I think I managed to have each of them above -10 when I was around level 7 or 8.

My leader is at lvl 32 with fighting skill of 115 and ranged skill 73, including 24% morale uplift (not sure where the 1% goes. my health has the 25% morale bonus) and a 43.55% bonus from gear.

sorry about the typo. it is too dark and I cannot see the keyboard.

Use firefox. Do not use chrome. Firefox is a lot more stable and it handles the crash a lot better.

well it is a trade off, I say. You can use better gear and get more stat for each upgrade.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Gear advise for level 20 or under

You have 100 gears and you are not sure what to bring and what to recycle. It is eating up your inventory space. What do you keep and what you do not?

Start from the most important:
1. Glasses: Glasses improve range and accuracy. Keep 1 for each survivors and all the not yet usable ones. Range is more important than accuracy. Please note that tlsdz do not calculate dps with range, so if you have a high range low dps gun, keep it. Put the glasses on every survivors defending the compound and all non-melee, non-medics, non-scavengers.
2. Weapon Cleaning Tools: secondary range gear if you do not have enough glasses. use them on weapons that has low accuracy.
3. Vest: Melee gear.
4. First Aid Bag / Medical Kit: You only need one for your medic, for out going mission only. so keep the best and throw away the rest. unless you waste your leader to be a medic as well.
4. Hand Wrap/ glove: keep the two best ones for your scavengers. I have two for my Recons who are in charge of scavenging.
5. Ammunition Pouch / Bandolier: Improve dps for AR, SMG and LMG. Only keep the unique ones with a 65% or above reload rate. The rest are useless. Recycle on spot.
6. Shoes: Recycle on spot.
7. Extended Mags: Recycle on spot.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Can't attract survivors

1) there are no quests, just tasks.
2) there are no followers, just survivors.
3) you do not fail to attract anyone, you keep on building until you meet the requirement and new survivor turns up. at the same time, new requirement is given to you for your next recruit.
4) remember to assign your new recruit a role before you can use him or her.

well, I checked. My walkers are registering okay. walkers are usually less than runners and fats, but at lot more than the scientists, bruisers, HERC and police.

May as well try to file a report

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Game Survival Tips from LiamTBG

Please take note that this probably only works with low levels.

I am giving my two cents.

  • zombies charge towards the survivors on the field. So if you split your team into two, zombies would charge two different locations until one team is eliminate. So do not bother “team 1 guards this door, team 2 guards back door, my team guards wing door”. Put them in the same bucket surrounded by barricade and let the game runs.
  • if you play tower defense game, you should know the trick. use barricades to form a maze and let the zombies run around your gun men when you are under level 10. Only close the gap later when you are packed with machine guns. Oh. when you close the gap, remember to swap out the melee weapons. you are not going to use them ever again in a defense.
  • Long rifles are essential for raiders, but dps is most important point to defense against zombies. if you are logging on, no one can raid you. so swap to rifle when you are going to logout. and swap to machine gun in the 3 minutes mark before the zombie attack your base. remember. defense do not use ammo, so patch your defenders up with the 200-ammo-requirement-guns,
  • watch towers. the side with the ladder is the BACK with little defense. I have seen too many people thinking that is the front… btw it only offers up to +6 in range at level 5 and medium cover… a level 5 barricade do better cover than that and you do not get the blind spot. build them only when you are too rich.

  • One of the female fellow survivors: I wonder how boss knows all the combat details of us when he is at least a few hours away from the mission area, thus gaining enough experience to “level up” a few levels ahead. Does he spy on us? Does he do that too when we shower?

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Maintenance

Goes firefox instead of chrome. Lag is a lot better.

If you are still lagging in firefox, think about us who played in chrome…

Talking about frustration, have you ever hotkey your team to a spot, only to find 3 out of 5 members are left behind on the spot never moved? Have you getting a survivor to the safe spot and find that either you click the wrong location and he refused to move? or you accidentally clicked on another members switching the control without notice?

Those are real frustrating.

  • Why man are killed by bullets? Mostly from bleeding, or an important organ being defunctionized. Why zombies are killed just like the human? Is it because their blood function just like the human? Anyone thought of a blood donation station in the zombie zone instead of having so much blood split going to the waste?

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Where do I find infected police?

Guess if I am going to make this bounty ever?

Another bounty that needs me to take down 25 infected police.

mission 1: Killed 0 from my first unidentified building mission
mission 2: killed 1, 19 to go. from a large hardware store. killed 20 fat and 108 walkers meeting all other requirements in the same zone.
mission 3 and 4: Did another zone and be done with it in 2 missions. No police involvement.
mission 5: killed 4 in a large park in zone 3, the highest level zone I can afford right now.
mission 6: killed the last infected police in a suburban street very early on. Zone 3 done. Now we are back to the 19 police in zone 1.
mission 7: killed 1 in a large park in zone 1. 18 more to go.
mission 8: killed 4 double wow in a large park in zone 1. 14 more to go. 4 missions for 6 police, averaging 1.5 per mission at this point of the bounty hunt in zone 1
mission 9: killed 3 in a large park in zone 1. 11 more to go.
mission 10: killed 4 in a large park in zone 1. 7 more to go. Wow, not all hope is lost yet. 4 hours to go and I think I can manage another 2 missions. The bad news is, there are no more large park in the area. I shall try the street.
mission 11: killed 1 in a suburban street. 6 more to go.
mission 12: killed 0 in a normal street. 6 more to go.

And I am done, while 4 more hours before the bounty expires. RL matters call and I cannot play 24 hours a day. Forget about the bounty when it involves policemen. The price does not pay the price.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Where do I find infected police?

Got 9 police in the first 2 missions… and thought something might have changes. Got 0 on the third. 2 more tries.

Edit: 1 police in the beginning of the mission. well, 10 police in 4 missions and 4 more for the two other zones without police. 8 missions. this one is doable.

I got a lvl 3 card for the bounty and 3 infamous token. wow. it is my lucky day today.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / new scavanging areas

If you want to kill the developers just say so.

Other than the new gears and all the strange conditions, I would say new area and levels always sound good. let’s put up and level 55-60 areas and make it super hard, so hard that the players with super guns and gears die a million horrible deaths.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / How to find more Resources

Actually it is quite easy if you know how to do it.

You will be unlikely missing wood. If you do, raid any building that has a hammer on it.
If you are missing metal, which goes like water in a drain after lvl 20, raid depot, large hardware store and construction site, in that order.
If you are missing cloth, which is important to build up comfort and defense at around lvl 15, raid department store. Mark down all department store in the map and make sure all of them are visited before you end the day. You should have barely enough to keep you at peak building rate.
If you are missing ammo, throw away LMGs in your team. auto mission with melee weapons. Build the two drop points and max them and they should be good enough with your occasion visits to the streets, parks, gun store, security and police station.
If you are missing food and water in the very early stage of the game, try the store. at lvl 20 you will have so much food and water that you start throwing them to the dogs.

that sum it up all.

  • Not sure if it is a later bug but enemies range unit stop attacking you in some map. And I found that my wizards attack path not working in some map. If I select auto battle my wizard and archer would sometimes stop attacking standing right next to the enemy units doing nothing.

  • I have really good teammates, best shooters in the world. When I charge the zombies, they fire behind me with their shaking unsteady machine guns. and you know what? they never hit me with one bullet. instead the zombies, which I am standing in the way between the two, will get knocked down by bullets flying through my armpits, between my legs and under my ears. Man. Did I mentioned that I was dancing with a metal bar?

I am testing this out and so far seems the solution seems good. Firefox is a lot more stable comparing to chrome.

Edit: well, right after I switch the game to firefox, the game crashes after a mission. usually in chrome the game will eventually comes back, probably the game calculating and updating the server about the loot. For firefox, it hangs as soon as I switch the browser to background and never recover.
