Had the same thing happen to me on my best character yet.
I got the luckiest spawn ever, had Elektro pretty much all to myself. Ended up with an AKM, 1911, plenty of ammo, 2 morphine, canteen, matches, hatchet, and hunting knife.. Everything you need to survive alone pretty much forever. I head north and avoid any major town like the plague and last quite a while, probably close to 10 hours game time out in the wild.
After exploring a lot of the map I finally decided to check out the NW airfield because the server was pretty dead at the time. All of a sudden it was like I was playing the broken 1.7.1 patch again. Zombies would spot me crouch running from a quarter mile away, and if I killed them they would just spawn again and run to my gunshots. I barely get away from the mobs and decide to get out of there when I once again got picked up by zombies that should of never spotted me. I never even realized they went aggressive until one was right behind me.
One hit, around 10k health and I get knocked out + a broken bone. I just lay there while watching my blood go down until death.
I wasn't very happy, its just seems like another one of those things that is fun for team players but completely ruins any solo runs. Like broken bones, if your buddy gets shot in the leg he is forced to crawl until it is safe to fix himself, that sounds awesome when your doing 4v4 PvP. When your playing solo, a broken leg means death unless you want to spend 5 hours crawling to the nearest hospital.
They really need more server options, some for solo players others for team players. Ones with fast deadly zombies for hardcore players, others with slower zombies that can't rip your head off with one hit. It seems like its pretty much always been the creators way or nothing at all, and doesn't look like it will change anytime soon. Its a shame because we have witnessed what can be done with games like Minecraft when you let the servers make their own rules. This game could be great, but I get the feeling the creator might also be the one who destroys it.
Anyway I hope I"m wrong and will end my little rant, still can't wait to get back on and start my next character.
