Welcome to one of the oldest and stupidest (un)event to not very often be run on DayZ.
Run Die Retry has run every year since 2017 (I think there was one in 2016 but all records have been burnt), sometimes we run it twice a year, but usually it’s just the once. It’s always well attended and people seem to like it. Running it infrequently keeps it special and very often the latest wave of DayZ players have no idea what it is, which is very cool. It was important to us that there were no entrance gates, just log in and go. For the players. The whole event is even built so people can join at any time and get on with it, you can be in your first hour of DayZ and join the server with 5 minutes to go and spectacularly ‘lose’ for fun.
Even the idea of winning is diluted by having a secondary mission of getting drunk with some DayZ people in another part of the map while the eager ones run around Tisy.
It brought a lot of people together in game play stories and controversies, which is always great.
It was set up to be a ‘thing’ for a group of friends to have a laugh, to stay true to DayZ and be open to everyone, taking some cues from Survivor GameZ and adding some chaos and bewilderment. Also staying true to a lot of the ethics of our servers.
DayZ is not really an event driven game, it doesn’t lend itself easily to organisation but it was always fun to have a thing in the year even if DayZ fought tooth and nail to stop it happening
There have been many years where it’s the only event run and it kept things ticking along.
Right now there’s a lot of PC DayZ events and good luck to those people, of course, but with such a packed DayZ event calendar Run Die Retry doesn’t feel special, and that’s a shame
As ever with Run Die Retry other servers may have a go at running their flavour of it, details at the bottom of the page. (NCRP run an Xbox version for example)
‘When will the next RDR be?’
When it’s needed and that’s not right now
Get together, play with new people, have a laugh, get drunk, love DayZ

- Judges decision is final, playing indicates acceptance of rules.
- You should be over 16 years old to play
- Having server messages turned on is probably a good thing
- Places are limited
- Normal Spaggie server rules apply
- Judges are the server Admins, the server Admins will be playing amongst you
- Mods and Admins are shit players so won’t win, but maybe they will who cares
- Judges decision is final (in case you didn’t read it the first time)
- Playing signifies acceptance (in case you didn’t read it the first time)
- Shit might go to shit, playing accepts shit might happen.
- Fuck the rules, have fun
- If you don’t like a bit of chaos on a friday night maybe go elsewhere
Facts of life:
— Don’t be a dick, the entire server team is having a night off probably
— Stream if possible, it helps the stream snipers no end
— We don’t know who’s going to turn up, we once ran a RDR on an open server with 6 people, it was hilarious, but tell your DayZ friends abour RDR. Please.
— Take a moment to consider all the people who give to a community, and those that take.
— Being any fucking good at the game is not a prerequisite
— All this will be forgotten in 10 or 20 years
— It’s a drunken shitshow, everyones drunk, if you’re not drunk are you even trying. Shit goes wrong, maybe something goes right, who actually cares
— Wander into the organisers discord afterwards and tell stories (remember to use line breaks)
