As announced by Daybreak this afternoon the game will be splitting into two separate games.  We do not know how or if this will affect the server.  BUT they have announced a wipe on Feb 17.  So new people if you wish to join us on the day of the wipe get your applications in now. (If you are already on teh server you are fine.)  Be sure to apply by Monday Feb 15 if you wish to be able to be on the server for day 1 of the wipe.  It is unlikely that any applications will be processed the morning of the wipe.

Also new this week is the incredible awesome new addition to H1Z1DB. Introducing the new feature H1Z1 Skin Sticker Book. This you have the best collection out there? Can you take Mattie’s #1 crown? Sign up to see how your collection stacks up!

You are allowed to use the cloth that you find within the proximity in case you get shot.
