Status of Military RP

Recommended Posts

Heyyo, I'm obviously pretty knew to the landscape. So I'm sure this has been covered at some point elsewhere. But I just had a few questions for the community rather than just the staff.

How is the Military RP on the server in general? Is there a lack of it? Is it not accepted? Is it disliked? Is it done properly? Have you had issues with it in the past? Have you had some good experiences? I appreciate any feedback. As someone who really enjoys this kind of RP I am looking to see what the environment is like for it.

Plenty of people do it or have done it. There are currently no formal military groups, but there are a couple of "militia" groups that are currently active. 

 

Military groups in the past have been either hit or miss. If done correctly, they're usually pretty good. I believe the general consensus is that Special Forces groups and "Super Soldier" groups are frowned upon or just straight up banned.

basically put some effort into it and you'll be fine. People might still just call you a super soldier but who cares.  U do u. Just don't be a I CRASH LANDED HERE IN MY HELICOPTER WITH THE REST OF MY SQUAD IM THE LONE SURVIVOR IM A NAVY SEAL. etc. Those are the characters people dislike.

Believe me, I do my best to make it sure it is done as proper as possible, and I'm still learning. I'm just not gonna put in the effort to go that route if it will just be used as toilet paper.

Well, there have been a lot of groups that were resembling the military, but they died off due to people disliking them. Next to that not a lot of people want to be military because you'll get initiated on a hell of a lot.

military RP right now is shit tbh, when .63 comes out tho it will improve.

Doubtful. Almost all of SZ shits on military members. .63 doesn’t add anything that would change that

Resembling the military is always difficult in DayZ. With only a few variations of military kit, running multiple military factions at once is difficult, so you don't seem them very often. At least not recently or in the near future by the looks of things. There are a few 'representations' of the military, through ex-military and ex-UN characters and there are factions like the Socialists which kind of resembles a military, but otherwise - not really. There isn't a USMC faction, or a CDF faction either.

If you want to do it, start with some friends. Being a lone-wolf military dude is kind of boring, especially when there are some factions out there that aren't the biggest fan of the military. ;)

Here are several examples of recent military RP on DayZRP. Keep in mind these are just examples from my point of view within the U.N. but there are also plenty of other examples from the CDF, Russian VDV, NATO, and the Ukrainians (who came into the picture after the others had fallen, and have since moved on). Like undead said above, if you put good effort into it and come across as a professional soldier and not, like some dude who, like, played a video game with soldiers in it once, you'll be fine. Just learn some military jargon, learn how they speak and act, and do your best to emulate that. 

Oh, and expect to be hated by everyone and initiated on constantly. You'll need to be able to get a minimum of 6-8 members online in order to be viable, so recruitment is very important. Good luck!

National military RP just got viable / boosted (on a larger scale, that is) again:

 

Of course as others said or implied that does not even cover all remnants of other (national and international) institutions but this group (no shameless ad intended) will provide a boost. 

 

Still you may need a thick skin, some people simply got IC and some maybe OOC murder boners. Also since you can be usually more easily identified by enemies compared to blending in. 

Anyone interested in joining such groups should keep it in mind. But then again you get to see a unique approach or content to RP you won't see in other types of groups. And vice-versa of course. 

 

Good potential event or content motor though.
