What Is Whitelisting?
A whitelist is a group of applicants that have been granted access to our private shard servers. Screening our player base helps us keep control of our hacker-free environment. The entire process has been set up to be completely painless and mostly automated. Below are detailed instructions that will help guide you through this experience as quickly as possible.
Why Would I Want To Be Whitelisted
By becoming whitelisted, you’ll be on permanent vacation from hackers, exploiters, and griefers. Why spend four hours getting geared up only to get crumbed-off by a lowly hacker? Why possess any skill at all when someone can ghost in behind you? Server hopping puts players back into PvP mode far too fast. A major part of the DayZ experience is surviving the environment. DayZ is about interaction, not loot. There are also perks to being whitelisted. Ban appeals, events, and Steam key giveaways are but a few!
