Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why are the Private Shard alternatives more expensive?
A: The DayZ Standalone & Private Shard product includes the Shard fee as well as its connection fee towards the shard while the DayZ Standalone & Private Shard (Slave) product only includes the connection fee towards an already existing Shard.
Servers connecting to the Public Hive do not have these additional fees but are required to be in compliance with the Public Hive ruleset rather than having the additional control provided by the Private Shard ruleset
Q: What are the differences between Private Shard and Private Shard (Slave)?
A: The Slave product requires a DayZ Standalone & Private Shard product in order to function, as it does not include any Shard itself but rather is slave server connecting to an already existing Shard.
Q: What machine specifications are used to host DayZ Ranked Servers?
A: Our ambition is and has always been to utilize ONLY high performing hardware, why we have decided to use E3-1270v2 CPUs offering 3.5Ghz (turboboost to 3.9Ghz), minimum of 16Gb DDR3 ECC RAM and SSD for faster disk access.
Q: What are the differences seen to management between Private Shard and Public Hive?
A: With a Public hive, you have the ability to change the server name, message of the day and kick abusive players (harassment, cheating, exploiting bugs).
Having a Private Shard adds the ability to kick and/or ban players, restrict user access with password and/or whitelist as well as having access to the public hive features.
