    So lets get this entirely straightened out. One of our big bosses claims that "At least the accusing side RPs on the server." against a compilation of long time, hard working, RPers that have done a hell of a job making this place not as casual as it's become. That's already a fat meme in and of itself. So...let's report an event that happened on a Pub server, where our rules don't apply, and our only justification for doing so is the CHANCE they would bring the story to DayZRP and "cucking the hostile RP." Then the report is defended by enforcing a regulation never before thought to be an issue. The regulation, mind you, being added and enforced after the report went up. Accused side is willing to speak about it, accusing side wants to tack on accusations of flaming and keep the report open and to enforce to all naysayers that "No matter what you say, you're wrong." Server lights up in fire. Admin response? "Stop playing dumb." Dumb. Ok.

    When I first joined the community (way back in 2013) it was more RP in game and less forum stuffs, but now it has changed around. I see lots of people on the forum and few in game at the moment. The more time people spend on the forum the more people get heated with certain things or take things too personally (some of the replies in the report section especially). I'm hoping that .63 is the catalyst to get more people in game. I haven't played in a while due to several reasons but absence makes the heart grow fonder and I'm considering getting my arse back in game. People need to get back to basics. We had the opportunity to freshen things up when the lore was restarted but that didn't last long due to people just returning to the old characters that were around before the wipe. Same groups were made (even if it had a different name) that people were comfortable with but with comfortable comes stagnation. Some people tried to do new things but it never really panned out. I only hope that with .63 comes a wave of optimism and RP that is both entertaining and enjoyable for all in the community. As @Despacito2 says above, people need to remember why they came here in the first place, get in game not with a game plan or preconceived notion of what to expect. Just try to survive and evolve with the RP (even if it's a bit 'boring' at times). If you log in to expect to meet someone in game and have mind blowing RP every time then I think you're logging in with the wrong attitude, you can still RP with the environment and have fun. Stop living in the past and live in the now, if you played the mod version I agree that it was great as I loved the mod (loved it) but that is long gone so lets move forward and try to push SA to be great. Please stop having a preconceived notion of a character or group through OOC interactions on the forums, they might surprise you. The IC vs OOC separation seems to be a little difficult for some people. If you have already judged someone's RP through OOC stuffs then how are you expected to enjoy it when you're in game? There are some amazing RP'ers in the community on all sides of the 'RP style' divide. Get your arse in game, be unpredictable, value your in game character, immerse yourself and for gods sake enjoy it.

    I ain't posted anything in a while, fact is I just stopped caring, too many things have just not met my personal standards and I can't bring myself to accept it. But what I've heard of recently absolutely takes the fuckery cake to a whole new level. So let me see if I understand this correctly. A bunch of people don't trust another bunch of people due to conflicting histories . They want a nice simple little wedding and the main thing they don't want in this wedding is someone to come and fuck it up like so many incidents in the past involving the whipping out of big dicks, because clearly those appendages just need to be seen and hey I can get that, you're drained, you've seen too much dick... the last thing you want is streakers at a wedding. So they get up and go somewhere where they know these offenders of decency will not be. They don't make a big deal about it, no advertisements, it should all go swell. But the other side finds out and doesn't like that at all, after all their dick just has to be seen. How could anyone not appreciate the flaunting of their RP murder worm? This clearly offends them. I mean straight up cock block at such a grandiose stage to present themselves...it must be punished! Fast forward to the event and was it a happy ever after? Fuck no... there's a penis shaped imprint in the wedding cake, Humpy McGee is pogoing around the dance floor on his swollen man sized balls, the fuckin priest has be KOS'd and the cameraman's thinking he's about to make bank on America's top home videos. --------------------------------------------- Lets get serious now. A lot of these people don't like those other people due to broken trust, bad experiences and a history of disappointment. They wanted something away from you. It wouldn't effect you, it wouldn't be detrimental to your story or your IC... but that wasn't good enough, you had to go and fuck it up anyway. You literally stalked them like a creeper, found out where they were, tracked them down and sabotaged their little personal event, only further proving every god damned clause they had to distrust you in the first place. You had absolutely zero reason to do this, but you did it anyway out of spite and even worse, you put up a report... a ridiculous laughable report to try and further hurt them. You disgust me. What you did was petty, childish, spiteful, immature (I mean why go to such a god damned effort?) and above all else wrong. And you wonder why they don't like you? But you won't learn from this because you're stuck in your own little bubble, trapped in the realm of your own opinion and are so selfish you can't see it being any other way than your way because you're so damned used to getting it as you play to big group pvp mechanics and rule walls instead of doing what truly makes a great RP'er and that's giving a damn about the experience of those you RP with opposed to just your own make believe IC dick size. I am already done... I was done long before this when quality hostile RP ended up being shackled into the ground. I know it's because certain others pissed all over what hostile RP is by getting into massive pvp focused groups and kill thrilling all over the map, but then rules where made that hurt hostile RP as a whole in a general sense, tarnishing the setting of post apoc instead of focusing on the issue to kill thrill enthusiasts instead. But there's good folk out there that have to sit through this side show still... and it ain't right. So there's yet another person saying the same damn thing... not that it'll matter, after all we're a little too used to talking to brick walls.

    I know Ive made basically this thread before, but I think we all need to remember the reason we all joined this community. We all joined because we love roleplay. We all joined because we wanted to have fun, and do what some people might think is strange. So I know things can get heated sometimes. But I think we should focus on roleplay. I think we should all treat eachother with a little more respect, and I mean everyone. Hope everyone has a good night, morning, or whatever time you're reading this. And enjoy the roleplay!

    100% right Throughout this communities history we have had a shark on the servers. That died out (in my opinion) with the fall of zelenogorsk and the restriction the rules went into. Bandit groups now are a shadow compared to the likes of S-GRU, SDS, SVR, Volki, IRA, B-17 and many others. These groups weren't designed to just go around and initiate they were around to provide fear on the server and give great RP experiences. That all got lost in translation when our community staff targeted that type of RP style and blamed them as a reason the report section started to fill when the real reason for it filling up was the fact that new members just preferred to bitch and moan. A vendetta was launched on these bandit groups as if they were a huge problem to the server which could stop people playing due to how these groups were portrayed on the forums... and there lies the issue, we took the forums into account. The community went from RP on a game to being about not scaring away new members because, well heck lets be obvious, it could lose us potential money to pay off a debt. The funny thing about this was the fact that older members that put the time in and provided the money aswell as a full server (or 2) in the first place were then seen as expendable, we had payed our share and put on a hit list because new was better than old. This led to frustration amongst the older supporters of this community, especially when it came to rules being updated to make banditry a lot tougher (the one thing that actually made the servers dynamic and exciting and provided a fear factor aswell as promotional material). Then came the inexperience in staff that was questioned multiple times by ex-staff members (including myself) to which rather than look into and provide better training, us ex-staff members were seen to just be moaning and if we continued we would get a perma (something a few of us did experience). Then came the chicken saga, after us ex-staff were putting the warnings out there about staff training we got a first hand look at an incident that really didn't need to go the way it did and now we find ourselves with a dead server. I'm not saying that us older players were perfect but atleast we actually filled the servers up, created great groups and helped to promote this server to the heights it reached in 2014/2015. Its just a shame that we were seen as expendable in favour of a younger business model which quite frankly has gone tits up and you cant blame the game fully for that. Even with a shit game, people would have still played provided there were decent groups providing memorable encounters. Had the rules not got restricted and the older players not banned for something so insignificant im sure we would have still seen atleast one full server to this day... Wouldn't surprise me if this post gets shut down, but the truth is the truth..

    Today is the day! Exactly a year ago, i got whitelisted to this community, and server. It's with mixed feelings i sit here today. I really enjoyed the community to begin with, but unfortunatly i quickly learned there was a lot of drama involving this place, and i even became a part of some of it. the last month i was been avoiding the game and the community, i needed to get away from it, because it was affecting my daily life, in a bad way. Now i want to put it all behind me, and maybe start enjoying the game again, and simply avoid as much drama as i can, and i hope this can get me back to playing the game and just enjoy it. I know there is a lot of different people here, and not all can get along, but i hope that people in future will leave their personal feelings and dislike out of the game, and actually give characters in game a chance to just be that character.

    PVP doesn't promote more roleplay. Maybe if there was more hostile RP (and when I said hostile RP I don't mean it always needs to result in an initiation) it would promote more RP.

    Lets entertain the idea... -1) I could go to Miroslavl and do whatever, say blow up a bomb and then come back and it happened -2) I could go have a wedding over there too and it happened -3) So you say I can't go on another server to actually play said wedding out that after, we would act as if it happened in Miroslavl? Furthermore... 3.1) Since it happened in Miroslavl and its not a location on our server so where is the rule that says I can't go elsewhere to RP out what would have happened in Miroslavl? and now one step further. 4) Is it depriving other people of RP if I have an event like a bomb explosion or wedding in Miroslavl without asking each and everyone first what they would be doing or if they wanted to join? To my knowledge so far, it has not been done this way, so why would it be a problem now? Next.. 5) We are allowed to make Radio calls while being in Chernarus and those radio calls can go on the forum, however its not seen as depriving someone of RP if someone is neither actually in the server while doing the broadcast nor talks out loud in the server where it could be interrupted. Conclusion: A) Therefore if a wedding that is done elsewhere taken into the server as RP afterwards is supposedly depriving others of RP then every single Radio Broadcast on the forums that wasn't done on the server is also guilty of the same thing, since it didn't happen in game no one could RP intervene or stop or interrupt said broadcast or wedding. B) If that is true, we better all get our reporting fingers out, on every single person that dared to deprive us of RP with their radio broadcasts or weddings. Any thoughts? ? ... I just can't stop wondering...

    You have pub servers for pvp, if you come to an RP server JUST for pvp.. You're doing it wrong. Pvp happens, sure.. but it shouldn't be a priority.

    The most fun I had was after the lore wipe, the RP was fresh, there was actual dynamics in play between the UN, CDF, VDV, and other groups. Then within a few months starting with the VDV leaving and then the UN. It went back to same old same old bandit groups generic group plot etc. And it has become more difficult to make a group, shying people away from it when there is real benefits in PVP by having a group as people in the group can help each other while people who became friends through roleplay in game a big clusterfuck. Honestly I want another lore wipe with .63 I want a fresh start, I want large groups like the UN, VDV, and CDF vying for power, ones that don't bother the average civilian, ones that roleplay with the civilian and don't be like "I am XYZ bad guy have you heard of me?" me- "no" them- "HOW HAVE YOU NEVER HEARD OF ME IM THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THIS LAND" *procedes to torture me and take my shit, then basically leave me for dead*

    Hello everyone. As a DM I have found that a lot of people in our lovely community are interested in, or have played, D&D/other table top RPGs and are looking for a game to join.

Sadly I currently have a full game and cannot fit anymore players. I ask that more DMs step forward that are willing to devote your precious time to giving others a wonderful experience.

    I just don't understand what the big deal is. If you label everyone who didn't get to participate in the wedding as a "victim", then lots of us would be victims and lots of us don't care because they didn't bring it back to DayZRP, and with that means it cannot affect anyone so it's null.. You can't assume someone's going to bring it back over when they haven't. Then you've got people saying they avoided RP.. but if they had it as an actual event, no one could've interrupted that either because consent has to be given by the organizer. Again, no one could've participated anyway so that doesn't make sense. tbh it just seems like salt because the guy wouldn't have been involved either way.

    What @Lady In Blue said. It all depends on how the PVP is handled and also how it is managed after the event. PVP is always nice when slow, not when it is a quick "no comply spray you down" because you basically kill your experience.

    He seems like a real jerk, this Dave. We've had a few threads about stuff like this before, and I'll say the same thing as I do in them. It's a mentality issue, and we are all guilty of it at times, even me. We have to just try and be a bit more mindful is all, and not try and purposefully be a jerk like Dave.

    I think more PVP could lead to more hostile RP with retaliations after an attack for example and if people RP their wounds it will lead to more medical RP aswell. A war between two factions also gives people who arent involved in it things to talk about and it can greatly affect two groups stories if thy meet on the fields of battle. That being said with some people it does the complete opposite (@Tiviyl ? ) and they feel it destroys all the RP they have been so lovingly building. In my opinion the thing that encourages all RP is infact hostile RP and it could be argued that it is the driving force behind all good/interesting RP if done right. Hostile RP often leads to PVP eventually and it can be loads of fun especially if a lot of people are involved. I have to say the answers to the poll are somewhat odd atleast in my opinion. The question is also worded strangely and it seems the question is based on the assumption that more PVP automatically promotes more RP so im going to have to go with apples...

    No, I just want more Hostile RP. Like random robbings, shady deals, creepy stalkers who follow you out of town, that sort of stuff. Stuff that makes the universe of DayZRP feel like a living breathing apocalypse more so than it is now. PvP is fine but it doesn't fix the problem. Simply having more of it won't necessarily make the RP better... hell it might make it even staler than it is now who knows. Just want to see Hostile RP be an integral part of the role play done in our community, like it used to be. Because without conflict there is no progression.

    I agree, forums, websites, discord etc aren't places for rp, you rp in game, everything I read here is considered ooc for me anyway, so no way my character would know unless physically hearing it in game. For the radio, there are radio's in game, if you want to be a radioman, get one, trade one, steal one and start your radio program, make sure you have alot of batteries. If you want to do something, it is supposed to be hard, that's what this game is about, survival, dealing with threats, making sure you and your friends/group can survive the next day. It's not about forum postings and such. That's my two cents Edit: Plus don't forget this is a pvp focused game, so expect some sort of pvp'ishness here and there, it's what makes the game exciting. If one wants to play zombiesurvival games there are better games for that.

    Yup, there's a certain amount of help with the distortion of the in game VOIP. No matter how much you think a character is going to sound a certain way, test it with people in game first. Thankfully the VOIP allows my voice to distort enough where apparently some people thought I was 16-17 in real life ? Thanks ? , I take a certain amount of pride when people hear my real voice as well, feel free to pop into TS some time if you want to hear the real deal Yes Douglas, the truth is revealed. Robbie is secretly a bearded man in disguise, he just shaved the beard, hunches over a little bit and hides in his hoodie.
