In a ZA, would you join a group or go lone wolf?

There are a lots of pros and cons when it comes to survive alone, along with groups.
Post what you think, and your reasons for it.

Personally, I feel safer with a medium sized group of, say, 6-10 people, this way we still have numbers, but not too much to atract attention. But there's also some problems with it, like possible food rationing, supplies, and of course, interpersonal problems.

  • Lone wolf? Not a chance. I'm sticking with a group.

  • I would like to be in a group with family and friends, possibly the closer family friends I prefer to be around, lol. I'm to afraid to be alone in a situation like a Z.A. (more afraid of coming into contact with a group of people I don't know than Zombies).

  • Michonne and Andrea have been fine on their own for months.

    Going lone wolf shouldnt be impossible. Also, there'd be no conflict in leadership, having to share supplies, trust issues, all that stuff. I'd be fine with just one, two or three people around me.

    I would never go lone wolf.

    I need a bait, and a human shield.

    That makes two teammates with me.

  • Well. I don't know.

    I'd think I would have a nice chance of surviving alone. I'm an athletic 25 year old man who does parcour, and also used to do gymnastics till the age of 17.

    Physically, I would be able to outrun anything and everybody. Here in belgium there are not so many guns so I think I would have a huge edge going solo.

    On the other hand, I'm not the type of person to go alone. Even if i'm capable of doing so, I'd like some company in one form or the other. So I suppose, if I would be in a group, I would be the guy fetching/searching supplies.

    COULD I go lone wolf? Definatly.

    Do I choose to do so? Probly not. I'm a kind and helpfull person. That could perhaps be biting me in the ass in one way or the other. But on the other hand, I'm sure people would love a nice and agile young man in their group.

    Other skills I have would be Carpentry and Brickworking (that even a word? You know. Build houses and such). i know basic farming (grandparents used to own a farm and cattle).

    My negative traits would be, that I have slightly reduced hearing (not by much) in my right ear, and I am rather shy.

    if I would go in a group, I'd rather have it NOT more then 10 people.

  • I would be in a group, the bigger the better alot more benefits, when your going solo say you fall down hurt your ankle or get sick you need someone to watch your back

    Stuff like that will degrade fast, when you dont have perfect nutrition and isnt able to eat every day or so.

    I dont expect even the people in peak human condition would be able to keep that much.

    Take what you eat now, and imagine suddenly having barely enough food to survive, you sure dont have the energy or food to keep in that level of shape.

    Thats the real downside of the human body, and yet its not a downside, but the body gets rid of what it does need, meaning as soon as you stop training and dont get enough food, it throws muscle out the window very fast.

    I would imagine even the best athelet would be back to under what is average down in less than 1 year with barely enough food to survive, eating maybe once or twice every week if your lucky.

    Now you can say sure, but there is lots of good around. i would say that around 95% of the food in stores and such will go bad without 1 month if not less.

    Then youre left with can food which isnt exactly healthy or good for you, but again its better than dying.

    when it comes down to a human having to catch your own food, without any tools, even the fastest runner in a world cant even catch something as simple as a rat or bird. Humans really suck in that aspect, take away our tools and were fucked lol.

    actually is amazing just how slow humans are, that we cannot catch live food.

    Come to think of it, the best bet at getting somewhat proper food, would be to find a military installation, get some of those MRE, Meals ready to eat that the military uses, and even those, i blieve had a life at around 4 or 5 years before they go bad.

    So no matter how you look at in 5 maybe some food on cans can last 10, but no more than 10 years and there will be no good food around anywhere at all, thats fit for human consumptions.

    i actually think more humans will die of starvation than by zombie. because there isnt enough food around without all the stuff running like clockwork, like farms and such, and even then most people cannot take care of them selves but finding food.

    I may be a trained butcher, but that doesnt help squat if i cannot catch by food lol, so im fucked as well.

  • Depends if I can find right group. I would prefer to be alone mostly I think though

  • I am a lone wolf, but surviving is always best done in a group. That said, I would probably not join a group as much as a horde... (braaaiiins!)

  • @Thadeum said: I would never go lone wolf.

    Maybe that's also what your teammates would be thinking, might make for an interesting threesome

    :eek:
