I don't understand people who prefer nighttime as it currently is. You think the playing field has changed and that everyone shares your atmospheric pitch black experience, but in reality, everyone but you is wearing gamma goggles and can easily pick you out a kilometer away.

I do it too and I won't stop until Bohemia fixes gamma abuse and stops everyone. I'd love to stumble around in the dark and play true nighttime DayZ, but the totality of that experience implies others are stumbling around too. I won't intentionally handicap myself.

That said, the current day/night cycle on Oldschool is useful because you can roughly tell when the reset is coming.

People will hack and wall glitch and dupe gear too.  Are you also doing these things because Bohemia has yet to fix them?

The cheater always blames the game as if it's the games fault he has no honor.

Sorry, but that's bullshit. Wall glitching, teleportation, aimbots and the rest are a completely different thing. I'd be the first to stop abusing gamma (and my eyes would thank me for it) if 90% of the people weren't doing the same thing.

You wanna pretend intentionally handicapping yourself is honorable, go ahead, but don't call me a cheater.

Alright, tell the admins to ban me then. Might as well ban the vast majority of their userbase while they're at it.

Just because your cheating cannot be enforced does not make it less of a cheat. 

You alter the game to eliminate a factor of the game play and thereby put yourself at an advantage.  Whatever helps your cheating ass sleep at night is fine by me.  I'll take you on with my unaltered gamma and not regret a moment of the experience.

You can even watch my side of it on my twitch when you are done so you can feel powerful and pretend you are better than me because you know the best and easiest cheat in the game.

Correction: I put myself on the same playing field as 90% of the players I'm playing against.

As I told you, I'd love a true nighttime where nobody can see anything. I don't want to use gamma, I have to -- unless I want to handicap myself. That's not my playstyle, sorry.

You can scream "cheater" at me all day long or you can sit down and think about what I'm saying here.

You cheat because others cheat.  This is funny.  "I'm not cheating mommy, Timmy did it first!!"

I'll hear you out there even if I can't see you. Hope your gamma goggles are ready.

I see this is an e-peen contest for you so I'll concede. That's right, Valdark. I've gone out of my way to join a private hive so I can cheat.

No it isn't and yes you have man. 

It's sad that you can't even admit it to yourself. 

I'm watching a stream right now of one of our members running with unmodified gamma so I'm not the only one.  There are honest players and there are cheats.

You use other cheats to justify being a cheat yourself.

Congrats.  You suck at night play so bad you have to cheat.

If you're going to change restarts. Do it so server 1 restarts a bit later (like 1600 or 1700).
