Announcing new staff rank and at the same time new staff member - JimRP.
PR Manager (rank name and color subject to change) will be responsible for promoting DayZRP using advertisement, gaming media, YouTube videos and streams. Jim was chosen as he has a lot of resources that can be dedicated for this task, he has experience in this kind of work as well as a broad contact network which includes many established and known content creators.
We hope to attract a lot of new players by promoting our community and showing the kind of game play that we offer.
I promised to create this page when the overhaul of the Premium ranks was done last year, but I never got to finish it. It's finally here
The page displays top 100 community supporters of all time.
All HoFers and higher ranks should have an option on their profile settings to become visible on the Hall of Fame page. The default is no, to respect everyones privacy. Let's hope that the page soon starts filling up with names!
You can access the page from the Premium menu or just click here.
Today I am happy to announce new premium packages that will be available for all our players!
As you all know, we have lost many many good players due to bans in the last few years and we would like to allow some of the OG lads to be able to come back, especially now that we have a Desolation server. We have thought about this for a long time, and because we are not able to fill 4 servers like we used to and because memes have gone to shit, we would like to bring some of that old-schoolers back and re-live the greatest moments of DayZRP. That and someone has to pay for them servers, eh?
So, without any further ado, we are introducing three new Premium features for you to spend your delicious money.
First up is a "ComeBack" package, which will allow permabanned players to return to the community for a small 49,95€ one time fee. Players who choose to buy the ComeBack package will also be given the "Pillar" rank, to distinguish their financial contribution to the community. The comeback package can be used by all kinds of permabans - too many warning points, whitelist limit exceeded, Hitler pics of Rolle, VAC and global bans, insulting Terra on streams as well as underage.
The second package we are introducing is the "Get out of Jail" card which can be bought for a ridiculously low 9,95€ on the Premium page. The card can be used to completely erase one warning or ban offence and warning points associated with it as well as ingame ban. The card can be used for both old and new warnings and can be traded between the players, just in case you want to bail your buddy out.
The third and last package is the "Untouchable Subscription", where you subscribe and pledge to pay 12,95€ every month. This package gives you all benefits and perks of the MVP Premium rank as well as immunity to a permanent ban for the duration of the subscription. You can still be warned and banned from the game, however your account will never go past the 30 warning points level. However, if you have active warnings pending and the subscription expires, your account will be banned as usual.
So what are you waiting for?
We hope that these new Premium features will be met with positive feedback from the community, as we continue to strive to create the best safe space for all of you. And as always, thank you for supporting DayZRP!
Our whitelist system will be slightly redesigned and split it into modules, so we can more easily modify it and get rid of a few annoying bugs.
Up until now the whitelist system consisted of one single long form targeted only at DayZ players. This form included many different processes that had different code requirements (steam login, form and security checks, rule question answers for example) and it was all coded in a single file. The code doesn't take into consideration that some people want to only play on our LiF or ArmA3 servers, without owning DayZ. The decision was made to split the two drastically different functions and create steam and game modules instead.
So, once todays maintenance is completed, the new whitelist system will consist of two parts:
- Steam module
All new members will go here first to complete the Steam integration and security check. This step is required if you want to whitelist for any of the games we host. It doesn't take more than 1-2 minutes.
There will be a new requirement for existing members to renew their whitelist every 6 months, this is to check for new VAC bans and additional protection against alt accounts/permabanned players. You will renew your whitelist by simply completing the Steam login procedure again with the same Steam account as before. You will be notified well ahead of time by a bar at the top of the website when it is time to renew your whitelist. Those who do not renew their whitelist will have all their game whitelists suspended until they do so.
- Game modules
After you have completed the Steam integration, you can now start on the whitelist for the game you'd like to play. Every game would have its own questions and information in the module. That allows us to be more flexible with the requirements for different games as well as allow new members who may be interested in our side projects to join without owning DayZ.
