The idea of interview a community member is to take yet another step forward towards bringing the

community together.

The idea is to create a thread where we will interview a random community member.

During this interview we will ask the community member some questions regarding the community and how their DayZRP experience has been.

This week we interviewed:

Hofer

Thank you so much for participating!


~ Tell us something unique about yourself! ~

I have a disease called ulcerative colitis. The disease makes me focus a lot on my diet to be able to work 100% and take care of my kid. I am doing fine though, as long as I eat correctly and take my medications.

~ Which section in the Forum are the you most interested in and why? ~

Report and ban appeals. Naturally for me as an ex-staff really. I spend so much time reading through reports and appeals all the time. Even the past 2 years, when I've been out of the game, I have still been lurking on the forums reading reports. I miss posting in them sometimes, other times I am happy I can ignore them.

~ How did you find out about DayZRP? ~

PsiSyndicate wave #1 in 2013. I spent a couple days at work just watching all of his videos from his first series. I joined the community post-wave, so most of the drama was already over

~ Have you made any friends during your time in this community? ~

Definitely. I have made some very close friends throughout my time here on DayZRP. Even have had the opportunity to meet some of them in real life last year. I will try naming most of the notable people I've befriended.

SumoS, Muntz, BigLittleShorts, Sin, Goz, Zhunk, Bryan, Terra, Gina, Caesar, Thumper, Chris, Tomeran, DeadAntelope, Bunny(Australian version), kakan, June, Crasher, Anubian, Husky, Tamaster, Taurz, Zeroxiz, Staggs, Seamus, Khardia, Othuyeg, Rolle, Proxzor, Major Tom, Rampage, Papa Emeritus, Shakya, Krimbo, magw33d, Soren, Bray, Alfie, Nath.

I might have forgotten a bunch, and there is a few I have left out intentionally to not ruin something undisclosed. Last but not least, all my guys in Krizek

~ Is there something that you would like to see added to our community? ~

A mobile page, however I got confirmation of this being resolved within a short amount of time. As for the community, more diversity when it comes to very important decisions made by the adminteam and/or Rolle. The community should have a say in many of these tasks.

~ What are some of your most memorable DayZRP experiences? ~

I have had a ton of memorable experiences throughout my times at DayZRP. I can name two specific events.

The first event that comes to mind was the big firefight at Haven between CLF (:clf:) and SVR+Doragonzu and MVD. This must be one of the biggest playercontrolled events that happened back in the mod days. 4 huge groups in a big clash to fight for the settlement, even though CLF were alone we had the upper hand with the settlement structure. I managed to kill at least 4-5 people, notably the Shogun of Doragonzu, before I fell. CLF won the fight after reinforcements came in from the outside and wiped out the remaining attacking forces.

The second event that comes to my mind is a huge firefight near Kabaninho between the Doragonzu and a group I can't remember the name of. I was not involved as I was an Admin at the time. I ran into the big firefight as invisible, and witnessed it all go down. It was chaotic and epic, but the end was the thing that made this fight so special. I believe it was BigLittleShorts and Bray charging (TENNO HEIKA BANZAI) the opposing force after being extinct, with axes. The climax of the fight was when one of the two axecharging Doragonzu actually managed to kill one of the aggressors with the axe before falling to their death. This was so hillarious.

~ Do you have a video of your favorite roleplay moment you would like to share with us? ~

There is so much, but most of it has been taken down from Youtube. I'll share one of our good moments in the CLF days.

~ Do you have a video of your favorite funny moment ingame you would like to share with us? ~

Context: We met a couple people who we believed were hostile, however they turned out not to be. We had a long session of RP which culminated in teaching them how to call in pigeons.

~ What do you think someone should at least do once while playing DayZRP (funny and serious and of course within the rules) ~

Experience the feeling of roleplaying a nationalistic Chernarussian character in a large Chernarussian group. The many aspects you can use in your roleplay towards the extreme high amount of foreigners there are in the country makes it really interesting to roleplay as one of these characters.

~ If you could meet one roleplay character you have met ingame in RL, who it would and why? ~

Muntz' character Felix or SumoS' Major Maseksky. Definitely the most entertaining characters I have ever met here on DayZRP, and the passion and quality of roleplay portrayed by the men behind the characters were brilliant. I would love to have a beer with both those characters.

~ Ingame, what is your favorite location to hang out? ~

I've always been fond of Pobeda Dam. It reminds me of the Free Medics and is always a peaceful place with beautiful landscape to view. If you love fishing it's also a very nice place to hang out.

~ What do you feel is the best thing about DayZRP and our community? ~

The tight knit community that was here before, and I can only assume it still is that way. The way staff interact with normal members is also something that is highly appreciated. Sometimes the community reminds me very much of how World of Warcraft realms used to be before all the cross realm stuff was introduced.

~ Is there anything you regret IC and OOC, since you have joined DayZRP (if yes, what and why?) ~

I regret some of the stuff I have said in certain groupchats about people who have not been present. I had a tendency to be very different depending on whom I hang out with. No bad intentions, just a bad choice of words.

~ Do you have any tips or hints for newcomers? ~

Read the forums, be active on the forums and be a nice guy. Use the TeamSpeak and chat with random people when you're not in game. Take care of each other and be to others like you want others to be towards yourself.

~ Is there anything you would like to see more of within the community? ~

More events, gaming nights (other games) and generally more nice people.


Interested in doing our interview?

Well you could be the potential next one!

We randomly pick people.

Keep a close eye on that PM box!


Thank you for agreeing to this interview Hofer, You were a member of staff I looked up to along with Sin, Caesar to name a few. It is a great read and even better having you in the group with us.You're an all round good guy and interesting to talk to.

Nice interview, but I think sometings are missing....

~ What are some of your most memorable DayZRP experiences? ~

Hofer: I have had a ton of memorable experiences throughout my times at DayZRP. I can name two specific events.

Which events do you mean?

And with the last question the answer is the same as the question above it...?

Is that the right answer?

That's the man, seeing those old videos of CLF and you talking about them has brought so much back into my mind. The old memories seeing them around in huge groups shitting on foreigners.
