    bait beɪt/ verb gerund or present participle: baiting 1. deliberately annoy or taunt (someone). DayZRP rules say: 6.4 You may not bait other players into situations where you use kill rights or self-defense (see rule 7.2) due to their response to your provoking actions. This rule was created to prevent scenarios that include, but are not limited to following situations: 1. You leave a vehicle/valuable items at location and go away while keeping overwatch on the things you left from afar. Another player stumbles upon your vehicle/items and takes them. You initiate on the person and rob them from their items, or you straight out kill them because they are technically stealing your belongings which is a hostile action. You get banned for baiting, as you may not leave vehicles or items unattended and then claim them to be yours when someone in good faith takes them in belief that they do not belong to anyone or that the owner is not around. 2. You steal something from another player in a situation where: The item is of insignificant value or is not valuable enough to you to justify the need to steal it There is no IC reason to steal the item or it does not make sense in the current situation to be stealing things from other players You stealing the item would put you directly at risk of getting caught (for example stealing right in front of a player, surrounded by their allies) After you steal something, the person or allies of the person you stole from obviously confront you about it and either initiate or directly engage you (which is fair and understandable considering stealing is a hostile action). You, or your group then use self defense as a reason to kill the people you stole from. You get banned for baiting, as acting in a way that provokes another player to initiate on you and using that as means to gain self-defense kill rights is considered baiting. 3. You are at a hotspot location where a lot of players gather. You block a path leading to that area by for example blocking a road with a vehicle or stand with your character in a doorway. You do not initiate on anyone or act hostile towards anyone, but you don't move either, making it impossible for other players to pass. Finally, after talking and reasoning with you has failed to get you to move, someone initiates on you and tells you to move or you will die. You or your group use self defense kill rights to kill the initiating party. You get banned for baiting, as acting in a way that leaves other players no other choice but to initiate on you due to your behavior in order to continue their regular RP is considered baiting. 4. Two groups are hostile towards each other. Your group knows the position of the second group, so they send you in alone to their location so that you get initiated on and are taken hostage. Meanwhile, the rest of your group takes positions around the area in anticipation of the initiation. You get initiated on and draw the other group out of their cover. Your group then fires and kills the opposing group with ease, as your group didn't have to go through the risk of having to initiate on them and you helped to draw them out of defensive positions. You get banned for baiting, as risking your life and using tactics where people are sent in as bait straight to the enemy in order to gain self-defense kill rights for your group is considered baiting. Also, in all of these situations, as per rule 7.4, any kill rights gained from the baiting are invalidated and any killers from your group will also get punished for any invalid kills that may have been gained from baiting. Baiting is also a 5 day ban offense now. Of course, baiting can be done in many ways, but it's usually easy to spot since it has very close links with rule play (killing people simply because the rules allow you to - rule 7.5), NVFL (risking your life for something meaningless, just to gain kill rights for your group - rule 5.6) or disregard for fair play (using any kind of advantage that the rules may give you, even if it doesn't make sense IC or is not considered ethical/fair play OOC - rule 5.3). I hope this clears it up for both community members and staff who handle report verdicts on how the rule should work and be applied when enforcing our in game rules.

    I for one voted for El Presidente and love it when he says "I got this". But then, I do love mischief and chaos. When party A walks into B's camp and steals a rifle, I can see how that's considered baiting. Why? Cuz A is mobile and B is not. Cuz A has nothing and can split up running in all directions, while B has to stay in one place to defend their shit. Cuz A could easily have set up overwatch beforehand and be prepared to destroy half of B before they can get two shots off. If a thief from A steals a rifle from B, and B tries to get it back (without initiating), maybe the rest of A should encourage their boy to give the rifle back. Maybe the rest of A could engage B in some sort of conflict resolution instead of escalation. Maybe A could offer to purchase or trade for B's rifle. Maybe the thief and the rightful owner could arm wrestle for it, or step outside the camp and settle the matter like gentlepersons. Maybe we could all RP instead of killing one another. Nah, that's just stupid. Never mind.

    Yeah i'm pretty much done getting in-game and providing a place for people to come and RP because some jackasses like to come and ruin it for no reason. Like a group who came and threw shit out of our tents, claimed the bar as their own, and generally ruined the atmosphere when it was their first time visiting.

    Cherno has very interesting and good RP at times but it's ruined by constant PVP and dumb hostile bullshit that makes no IC sense. I'm starting to think that Rolle had the right idea with the group balance system he wanted to implement. I've come to believe that some people are here with getting into firefights or robbing people just for the sake of doing it for the thrill and the RP is a secondary objective if it's even an objective at all for them. It doesn't really make sense to me for people to leave the main cities as society is technically still stable and there have been no government or societal collapses yet. As for the CDF claiming land and maintaining it, I highly doubt it will happen as everyone shits themselves because we're gone for a few days and then the constant hate that doesn't really have any backing to it from various dynamic groups.

    Going to keep it brief, taking some inspiration from @Brady for this thread. I'm taking a step away from the staff team on a permanent basis, though by no means am I leaving the community. Six months may not seem like a long time to be in staff and, for some of you who might read this, it pales in comparison to time you guys put in. Regardless, being a part of the team came with its fair share of ups and downs but, when it came down to it, what made it so enjoyable was the people. I mentioned some of you earlier in a previous thread but I feel as if you deserve a mention again, for all of your effort and how memorable you made my experiences here: @Lyca - Probably the first genuine friend I made in staff, you always had my back as a GM and being promoted to an administrator position didn't change that in the slightest. I learned a lot of what I knew about being a GM from you and Caesar, those lengthy report discussions, even when I was just a support, always stayed stuck in the back of my mind. Definitely one of my main rocks during my time, had you not been around, I'd have crashed out of the team months ago on a less positive note. @Caesar - You're not kicking about this place often anymore, with good reason, but nonetheless you deserve a mention here too. You were an example I followed during and after your latest tenure in the staff team, being able to come to you with problems and discuss them was great, I always feel like I'm learning something during and after our discussions. I don't think staff was really the same after you left, there are some shoes you just cannot fill. @Buddy - Not a member of staff but you deserve a mention for the sheer metric tonnage of shit you shouldered for me when I was at the end of my tether. Never lost your cool, told me to fuck off (despite much of the bullshit I spouted) and always listened well, couldn't have asked for any more. @Cid - We memed around a lot and you're always great fun to talk to, you were always one of the people I could rely on for a down to earth chat in the staff team. @Boston - We've had our ups and downs but we signed up together, you were the first person I properly spoke to during my time in staff, whether you knew it or not dude it helped me settle in immensely. You're a good guy, don't change. @Spartan - Oh darling, how I will miss tormenting the shit out of you in every way possible. @Majoo - You'll always be my MVP @SweetJoe - Never worked with you in any staff capacity but you spurred me on to put in that application, I doubt I would've if you hadn't given me that encouragement. @Jade - One of the three GMs that were kicking about back when I first joined the GM team, you've an undeniably good sense of humour, you always tried to keep things light and, whether you knew it or not, you taught me a few lessons about seeing things from the other person's perspective. @Eagle - First GM I ever worked with as a GM, you're a solid guy and a solid GM, we may have had disagreements but I have undeniable respect for you. @Para - Its a shame we couldn't work together as GMs, though I hope you learned something from our lengthy report discussions. @Brady - Your hard work to get into the team and your personality kind of rubbed off on me, I doubted you would ever get in but, thankfully, you proved me wrong. It was good working with you and I hope to see you back in green soon. Might seem a bit sentimental but, when I came back here a year ago, I never expected to have met with nor worked with any of you. I feel lucky and privileged to have had the experience I had here with all of you, makes me a little bit sad that its over but, when it comes down to it, I can gladly say I gave it my all and I hope that showed, not just to staff, but to everybody who knows me in this community.

    Permanent kill of your character is your personal choice. It cannot be used as a leverage in a report to get a lower punishment when breaking rules, nor is it an excuse when breaking the NVFL rule. Even when you are permanently killing a character, you must still do it with accordance to all rules, including NVFL. Therefore @Elliot James you will receive the same punishment as the other player, as there are no other extenuating circumstances that distinguish you two and it would be unfair to have the other player punished and you walking away scot free when you broke the same rule.

    Uhm...maybe they just want to role-play? Also it is a form of RP that is not against the rules in the community and you should respect that as much as somebody else respects for example your form of RP or anyone elses? I as much as anyone else from the community can RP in any way they want as long as it is in the means of the rules and isn't against. Which it isn't, none of them are stating that you can't get your small bunch of people and sit somewhere and internal RP 24/7 if you would like to. If you see that as issue well I'm sorry for you to lose bunch of targets to shoot at...

    I'm going to say one thing here that may or may not be popular but is 100% true for anyone thinking there is too much PvP: I've never been forced into a firefight. You may still experience some hostile RP that isn't maybe up to par with what you like to see, or perhaps some meme-ish/troll-ish RP. With everyone required to have a character page now, there is no reason why you can not contact a person via PM or TS to eloquently explain your displeasure and what you think they did well and could improve on in regards to the RP of the situation. If that fails, we have a report system for a reason. Just the ramblings of an old man, take it or leave it.

    VDV added quite a few interesting RP aspects. Civis were upset when you'd take their automatic rifles although according to their backstories, they had probably never shot a gun in their life. If they're not salty about one thing, they'll be salty about something else because for some reason, people can never be satisfied.

    Honestly there needs to be more events in game, it's the start of the damn lore and we've had nothing -too- big happen other than a global message about a nuke. Loremasters and players need to pull their thumbs out collectively and produce more events to further this lore instead of letting it sit there to rot. People get bored, people do stupid shit. People hated VDV, we gave you a hotspot area to have some RP but yanoooo..

    This is why we can't have nice things in this community... Smfh. Just walked into Kovar's to find tents missing, stuff on the ground ready for despawn, Items were thrown out of tents just to let them despawn. @Vartax @Darra @warmr @Mr.Panda I tried my absolute best to get all of these items back into the tents. It couldn't have been long since it happened. And then I walk down to the Bar and find trees cut down left right and centre for absolutely no reason. Yeah, everything was missing from the tents as per usual but that doesn't affect me in the slightest anymore. What really triggeres the fuck out of me is if people feel the need to cut down every tree on the road for no reason other than finding it funny to fuck with the Bar owners for opening because a tree will be laying across the bar. I'm getting sick and tired of this shit.

    -User was cautioned for this part of the post- We were in cherno, dealing with several situations around town, dusty had a hostage, we initiated on Louie and puncture, and the chedaki were seemingly getting peckish. Rather then let them mess with our affairs we hit first. If they had complied they would have gotten some rp, instead the laughed and ran away. They didn't laugh for long. In one of the most one sided firefights I have ever seen they got smokedchecked hard. Targets were prosecuted with extreme prejudice, and I've never been so proud of the guys and our teamwork. *single tear rolls down face*. We had a tally of all known combatants and crossed them off as we took them out, only one was left. The black tracksuit dude. Lo and behold, as we were getting ready to disengage becuase the situation was becoming chaotic, black tracksuit guy stalks up and says hi. Dusty took a chance, and it paid off. I won't lie, I thought he might have gassed a rando, and then I found your beret in your bag and we knew we were ok. Best fight I've had in 8+ months.

    I honestly think you're dead wrong. I joined Kovars, I role-played or attempted to role-play in Cherno to be around people, but you know what? In the passed three days there has been a bare handful of decent role-players trying to play out scenes and a shit ton of people that claim they are role-playing and not making any damn sense, not following the lore, pulling memes because 'Hey! it doesn't matter if I'm fucking up a scene for other people, it's just memes it's all good'... It's not being overly dramatic, it's engaging the fact that this garbage people are pulling is really killing all desire to even be there. Maybe you say alot of this stuff because you're part of that problem.

    I agree with Majoo, you fail to understand and see the reason Dusty as to why people decided to run away and hide in the North. The reason that group of people hid away was because certain groups decided one day that they were going to hunt down and initiate on people every single day who did absolutely nothing to them and had nothing to offer them in terms of supplies. They had no role-play reason, all they did every day was mass initiate on camps and groups for the simple fact that they could. Some really great role-players left the community because of some people. Firefights and banditry have their place in the community but it's an oversaturated market so to speak at this moment in time and from what I can remember always has been. There should only really ever be one or two bandit groups in all honesty and their numbers should never be large. Some people don't have the attention span or maybe it's just time to develop an arching storyline and I suppose that is fine but don't look down upon the people who want to go up North or something because they want to have some form of story going on besides pew pewing.

    Also, as far as I know, none of the staff team was approached or consulted with this. There should have been a discussion within staff about what to do to fix the issues that you're seeing with the server. This would have been much better instead of just jumping straight in and changing how the baiting rule has been enforced for 2.5 years. Maybe it's the salt in my system, but from what you've described, it seems that this is really going to hurt hostile RP a lot. Likewise, I don't think the baiting issue was that big of an issue. There have only been 2 reports on it in the last 2 weeks. It's not like the issue of people abusing alt characters to avoid consequences for their actions. That was an actual issue for at least a month before the lorewipe, but that was fixed by putting those who abused it on final warning due to their actions. I'm not saying people should be placed on final over this, I am just trying to compare two different issues that were handled differently. I understand you own the server and the community and are the final say on everything, but you should trust your staff team with the decisions they are making. If the decisions they are making is wrong, then a discussion within staff should be had. It's becoming more and more common to see you say things like "I got this", which sends everybody in staff into a panic, worried about who you're going to straight up ban, or worried about what you're going to do on the forums. It's clear that when you go to El Presidente mode, nobody likes it. So please, trust your staff team to make the decisions of the community. Otherwise, why even have a staff team if you don't utilize them fully?

    Honestly, I think things are being handled OOCly way too often right now. Why can't we just let RP be RP and let most of what happens be dealt with in game? When there are so many OOC things that affect what happens in game, it can get really stale, or can be difficult to even do anything without getting reported and/or banned.

    I personally loved what VDV did for the community it gave everyone common ground and it kept everyone in check, now Cherno is full of kids with automatic weapons all competing to be the big kid on the block. I also believe yes there needs to be lore events but it won't matter to people as long as they resort to dicking around Cherno lol

    So hang on, I'm going to ask a stupid question here. Instead of trying to clear the air and correct the miscommunication that something you posted about was not in fact about the person who commented rudely on a status update of yours, you just deleted it and went about your day instead? Why would you not try and correct the miscommunication and misunderstanding if it had nothing to do with that person in the first place and was in fact about a completely separate situation?

    I never heard the initiation, all I heard were tons of gun shots then I briefly ran into Bobby smith and another player i asked if either one of them had any idea what was going on. After this the player left I asked Bobby Smith if he was willing to barter for his red sneakers. As i was searching through my inventory looking for something Bobby would be interested in I was shot multiple times in the back while talking to Bobby in which i succumbed to my injuries and passed on to the next life (hell).

    Hello, this was me and my boy @focus Dustin Mayfire POV, no video evidence: I'll give some context real quick: A small altercation occurs which ends in one of my boys killing a guy and dying, then the guy who killed my boy died, and we took the last guy hostage. We have the guy hostage in the church the entire time this situation went down. Anyways, after the dust settles, the random people there begin hitting the bodies with axes and hammers saying they were "Harvesting the meat" so the crows don't get it. I accuse them of being cannibals and run, only to return and initiate on everybody in the street. I hit one guy in the arm who kept on strafing back and forth after I initiated on him. He then puts his hands up, before dropping them a second later and trying to kill me. I run to find cover and bandage. Focus then comes out of the church and helps me find all of the people who didn't comply and whatnot. I eventually kill one of them at some ruins by the crashed airplane, and then we go to look for the rest of them. I hear voip from some of the guys who didn't comply with the initiation, and so Focus and I begin to kill the ones who didn't comply. I made sure to reinitiate multiple times on everyone there, but nobody complied to my initiation. We end up killing the rest of them, save for one of them who we mistook for a random guy. We then finish with the hostage and leave town. The end. Now, as stated in @PaulGG's POV: Paul acknowledges that he and Brynden received the initiation. So, when we killed Brynden, we were 100% in the right as he did not comply to our initiation. Likewise, I reinitiated multiple times on most of the people we ran across to avoid killing someone who was uninvolved. That was me initiating on you and everyone else around you. You clearly understood what I said because you looked at me for a second while standing still, and began to run back around the corner of the building. And finally, Paul admits to combat logging here in his point of view. He states that he not only received the initiation and did not comply, he also admits to shooting at me and Focus, then seeing us again when we reinitiated on him, and then admits to logging out.

    From my perspective: I was axeing two bodies with Brynden and a man in a beanie came up and said "put your hands up you fucking cannibals!" and immediately shot at another guy who wasnt even beating the corpses. The guy nearly died and got all of his gear ruined. A few minutes later, the guy in the beanie shot Brynden and I went to go search for him. The same guy immediately shot at me and a few others that were with me and I shot in response with the SKS, and didn't kill him so I went into a house to hide. I heard the shots which also killed Eugene, and I ran outside and was told to put my hands up by the guy in the beanie AND blue tracksuit guy. They told me to get out of the town and they didn't want to hurt me, so I went outside and logged off. 100% these people are in the wrong and shot at many people for no reason whatsoever, and even if they did tell us to put our guns away they shot about 2 seconds after they said it. They also killed/attempted to kill (I can't tell) many of innocent people completely unrelated to what they were doing in the first place.

    "There Is A Little Story Behind This Screenshot" So I was heading back into the circle after killing a guy, when all of a sudden I hear a vehicle coming my way. I hide behind a tree to see where the incoming vehicle was located, it was coming right for me! I killed the man who tried to run me over, so I decided to stop and loot his body cause he had a Lvl 3 Helmet. As I proceed to loot his helmet, I got instantly get killed by a head shot from an M4. Take note that my helmet was not damaged at all, so I couldn't have been shot once in the head and died! This Game Is Complete Bullshit sometimes, but I still love it!
