We currently run 5 servers, 4 from the EU and one from the US. These servers have long contracts and are managed by Game Service Providers (people that know what they’re doing)
We do not give a shit about whether the server has 2 people on it (who, because of DayZ Luck end up in a gunfight in some arse end of Chernarus) or has 50 people on it. We do not give a shit about server rankings. We generally do not give a shit about that kind of thing.
You can easily find all our servers by searching for ‘Spaggie’
Even though some of our servers are aligned to communities and content producers they are open to anyone to play on
We do not run CoT or Tomato or CFTools or anything like that, we think you should be free to play and alone in there, we’re not gonna mummy you or Shitmin ESP you, or be invisible and listen to what you say. Only play on servers if you trust the admins, they know stuff about you
!! DO NOT USE 3RD PARTY VOIP ON THE VILLAGE SERVER !!

TheRunningManZ servers get persistence wiped on the first of every odd numbered month or on major update
TheRunningManZ Chernarus EU runs a low maxping for the best player experience. Sorry.
The Village gets wiped on every major update or if the community decide to
Be aware, The Village takes an amount of investment to understand, it should be passworded and whitelisted but we don’t believe in those mechanisms. Only play on it if you understand it, the discord is here:
The Village is possibly the most hardcore, cliquey, argumentative, over-analysing, angry, non-RP RP server in DayZ that you could ever play on, many people can’t cope with it’s nuances. With this comes an exhilarating reward of playing on one of the best immersion servers there is.
We do not like to trumpet, signal or meta things that may or may not be happening on servers. We may change something. We’ll leave you to guess what it is (Maybe we have 5 times the bears on a server, maybe we have a server full of guns, maybe we don’t. Often people can’t help but go meta when something interesting is going on, we reverse the interesting thing the minute we see meta. Don’t be that guy. Remember the peaches.
The only mod we run is The Deer Isle map, it filled a void of wanting a new place to run around in before Livonia came along and it’s lovely). But be 100% assured we do not run ‘console tools’ or anything else on there
All of our servers run a Church and State Model, The running of the server, DayZ on it, the general upkeep and the exclusion of players exists with the server admins. The community, how people play it and what happens exist in the communities across the servers. The community leaders do not have access to the server and the server admins do not run the community. This works to keep everyone safe. (Content Creators ‘owners ‘ are not using Godmin tools to kill innocent players for content, not only do those tools not exist on our servers, Content Creators don’t have server access anyway. Keeps YOU safe)
SEVEN SERVERS! Play, don’t queue
It’s all too easy in this ‘have it now’ world to fall into the Modded Servers category, need an SVD? Just collect 200 logs and take them to a trader DayZ kind of thing
1.08 just dropped and the list of changes is immense, some are good some are bad, loads are undocumented, which is right and proper for a DayZ type game to leave it up to a player to find something out (go ruin your trousers or look at the workshop at Balota petrol station. Or the view distance and lighting
Someone in a chat the other day said ‘oh the new gun is a Sporter, we’ve had that for ages on Modded, without realising how sad and spoilt that could be (spoiled as in ‘degraded experience’, not as in ‘spoiled brat’ … maybe). I just jammed a Sporter on 1,08 and the unjam animation is so perfect. Also the DayZ Devs want the sporter to NOT work, it took maybe 15 rounds to kill a zombie, it’s a shit tier gun and the game space needs it to do that. A modder may want the gun to work, that’s a completely different stance that’s lost in nuance
Also there’s a weird flex with modders which is lost on a lot oof people, let’s take a helicopter as an example. A modder wants you to have a helicopter to you can be wowed by what they did (and you should be), but DayZ Vanilla tends to not want you to have things, everything has a time cost and an entropy.
But this is just our point of view
In the same way we appreciate the choice of modding (and configuration changes that consoles do) please don’t come and erode choice by trying to tell us we are doing it wrong. It’s a set of very conscious decisions.
The servers may die, players may move onto ‘ARMA-Lite’ style DayZ, in our opinion that would be a shame because DayZ has always been something no other game has gotten right, thankless, bleak, unforgiving, paced.
