Griefing; why it is bad for the game. What do you think?

Recommended Posts

When returning to this server i have seen some Griefing appearing and being explain as stealing so i would like to explain what i  know to be the difference

When playing a game raiding is always a good and healthy part of the game play especially in RP.  The server's community staff place rules and guidelines to allow the healthy raiding system and thus healthy RP.  In raiding removing items that can be transferred on your person or unit. penetrating a base security and removing the items that the thief would find valuable to them, make since right?  in turn leads to tracking the thief down and RP a response to the Robbery.

On the other hand, Griefing is when you enter a space, base or location that you do not own and remove all items to ground, floor so they can despawn back in the game.thus, no one that actually owns it can have the items can have them just so they can retrieve the unit or tent that the items were stored in securely. (do to the mechanics of the game).

Griefing is not a positive action for anyone because it messes with the server and interrupts RP.  Besides it is a lot of extra work has to be done off game to take care of this violation. It interrupts legit RP .

The items that are thrown on to the ground in a small area of the server can cause lag and even a crash. This also interrupts RP and game play. 

Some solutions to avoid this would be:

- bring extra smaller storage unit with you to transfer items that are not useful to person that wants to remove the larger storage unit.

-Place extra items in the other storage units around the camp or location. 

Please Tell me your understanding and maybe we can stop the griefing on the server.

Hello Sabbie! At first welcome back to the community.

Second. The act of griefing is already punishable within the server rules as follow:

4.8 Griefing is act of damaging or destroying a player base, storage container, vehicles or their contents using OOC knowledge, ill intent or doing so without IC reasoning that is proportionate to the damage done. 

If you see anything that might fit this description feel free to make a report about it or discuss it with staff or other players if not sure first.

‘Griefing’ is the correct way to spell it.

base raiding is always going to be apart of this game. The fact of the matter is some players don’t see what they are doing as griefing when they go in and take items and toss some on the ground because they are moving things or whatever. Getting your base raised and guns or equipment stolen is not griefing. When people break into your base, empty all your tents contents onto the ground, break all your vehicles, break every wall down, that is griefing. 

Once more people are being overly sensitive about shit that happens in game. Maybe don’t build massive fuck-off bases and slap them in the middle of populated areas and they won’t be raided as much. Someone steal the 300 guns you have and a tent when you are a solo player? Good, you have no business having that much when you never die.
