Well, it is not for every body. I will say that we are all still trying to get the hang of the patch. The one thing to remember is that you WILL NOT ever get the same level of ammo we had before the patch. Now, they want you to feel like you actually achieved something because you found a 20/20 mag. They have flipped the old expectations on their ass, to make the game harder, that is why the regular loot spots are spawning different items.
I completely understand your stance and desire for more shooting/ killing. It is slow when you crawl from building to building and find nothing.
I actually uninstalled AA as it has no redeeming values for me any more, much like your dislike of the current game that is DayZ, I find that AA is boring and too repetitive. With that being said good luck over there.
