    When you're writing a dank lore for your character and you look at memes in another tab. You see a notification for a status update and you click it, it exits your character page and ruins all your progress on your backstory. F

    Thanks man I appreciate it, was so refreshing to have some fun hostile RP for once. Really made for a good experience for everyone involved I thought. Really hope to cross paths in game again soon!

    @Onyx Also had fun time RPing with you and your gang. Don't worry, things got even more hectic later. @Challenger @OxeN(can't find the rest of your group) Thanks for one of the best hostileRPs i've ever experienced. @Collin1398 Thanks for saving me! I hope it wasn't too hard to hear me. This has got to be my best night on this server (i wanted to go to sleep 2 hours ago but got so hooked i couldn't).

    What a great night. @yuthee @ScarletRose @Jackfish Had a lot of great RP tonight as usual with you guys! @Laurence Taylor Great RP from you dude! I genuinely never expected to come back, nevermind coming back with a shit ton of meds! @Challenger @OxeN @Jerry Didn't expect to run into you guys tonight! Was a great time in Kabanino, especially that fucking 6 man mexican standoff lmao. @Richard Fisby Dude, I know we didn't meet on the best of terms, but I'm so happy to see your RP has improved massively since we last met. I'm looking forward to running into you more in game! @lowca_ludek Not sure if you're the Igor we met in Kabanino, but if so, had fun RPing with you too dude, sorry we kept you in Kab so long though, things got a bit hectic!

    You don't need to be an active player on the servers to have an opinion on something big like rule or lore changes. This place has generally the same for years, you can come back after a year of absence and people will be doing the same shit with the same opinions. Some people will hop in with a hot take despite being uninformed on the situation but those people will just be ignored by most.

    I think, for some people, that getting attacked every single time they encounter a hostile group is what gets old. When a passive group who doesn't fight back is around, hostile groups tend to flock to them as easy targets because they know they'll comply or swiftly die since they're not PVPers and that means free frags videos and free gear. After a while the constant attacks, constant initiations and constant " why are you guys always running to RP in debug" gets to the more passive neutral players and they end up either getting mad and posting about it or quitting the server. I have lost several good RP friends due to this because they choose to play passive characters in passive groups and get targeted. Now the ones left wander around in the far reaches of the map to avoid the more dense areas where hostile groups reside JUST so they can RP without constantly getting initiated on. If overly hostile groups didn't always focus on winning or pushing their weight around then perhaps there'd be less animosity toward them. There are more ways to have RP when you're hostile. I like to point to Cerna Liska because they show up and leave sometimes not even with a air of aggression and that sort of RP is a bunch needed breath of fresh air because not every thing that moves needs to be shot and killed. It means bonds, arcs, and stories can be written between players who interact with them. They value the RP they get and the RP they give. There are more ways to RP, there are more options beyond screaming a initiation and shooting. Sure, PVP is fun and gets your blood pumping and your heart going but I feel a lot of the time other more overly aggressive groups focus more on their own fun than the two way street RP is supposed to be and then instead of communicating with the party they just encountered they brag or big dick on the forums. I know there are some who banter and meme about in TS/Discord because "I just gassed that stupid fool lolkekelmao" and it builds this sort of comradery with their friends each time they get together in a group. You can be hostile without ever raising your weapon to scream "HANDS UP OR DIE!" Often times it feels as if, coming from a more passive RPer, that there's no way to appease a overly hostile group or player. It doesn't matter what you say or how you say it they'll find a reason to get upset and angry and end up pointing their guns at you so you have to either comply or die. That is not to say all hostileRP is bad and should be stopped and I advocate for HotsileRP because it IS needed for a RP server. I have had some amazing hostileRP encounters and I loved every moment of them even sending thanks to the players who I RP'd with on more than one occasion. Sadly, those moments often feel few and far between. I believe people who honor and respect the idea and method of RP will work to build a character who can be hostile with hostile motives and interactions but more often than not I see people putting on a slightly different accent and using caricatures of what they believe their characters reasons for aggression to be and jump at ANY chance to show off how aggressive and hostile they are. Almost as if their characters are 2D. Flat. Without any weight or depth to them. "I hate the color purple, you wear purple. HANDS UP OR DIE I'LL TEACH YOU NOT TO WEAR PURPLE." Sort of ideals. Just the way I see it.

    Hello community members, today I will do something never seen before in this roleplay community and actually post a ROLEPLAY compilation.

    I see your hypothetical picture and I raise you a hypothetical response. I'm assuming this is sort of similar to the Psi report. 1. Well, that's a great question. What should the middleman do? They are stuck between a rock & a hard spot, mostly due to the fault of the person (in this case, N-Tox) who sent them inside knowing full well that there was a hostile inside. In this situation, for the middleman, it's either be killed or be killed. That's a situation you should never place someone in. 2. Everyone hates hearing it but obviously these situations are case by case, so it could change depending on the situation. In this case, N-Tox sends Puncture inside to face Reckless. Reckless initiates again and tells Puncture to leave. Puncture leaves, and is then killed by N-Tox. N-Tox receives punishment for giving his hostage unreasonable demands/perhaps invalid kill. In another instance, if N-Tox initiates on Puncture and sends him inside to face Reckless, Reckless initiates & Puncture refuses to leave claiming he will be killed, N-Tox would most likely still receive punishment for unreasonable hostage demands. Why would Reckless face punishment, when he initiated & Puncture did not comply to his demands? 4.7 If you successfully capture a player through a hostile action and then take him into your custody, he is now considered your hostage. You must do everything in your power to keep your hostages alive and in a relatively good health. That includes protecting them from external threats like zombies and leaving them with a realistic chance of survival when they are released. "You must do everything in your power to keep your hostages alive" meaning, you know, don't send them into a death or death situation. 3. Here's a link to the Standard Report Punishment guide. As I stated above, you would receive a punishment for Unreasonable Hostage demands, which is a 3 day ban & 10 warning points. You may or may not also receive an Invalid Kill punishment, which varies and may or may not be aggravated. I tried to explain the best I could, so I hope this helps. Also, this is simply my opinion as one Gamemaster. If any other Gamemasters or Admins would like to correct me or express their own opinion, they of course can feel free!

    I never dismissed HostileRP. As I stated before, I believe HostileRP is of high importance to a RP server and I advocate for it. But I advocate for quality HostileRP, not "dank memes 360 no scope pvp frag" type of RP or "fuk u hands up or die in 2 secs" RP. If when you make a feedback thread, or post it gets greeted with aggression, dismissal and memes and there's no change to the behavior presented then the point is moot. The situation isn't always as simple as "report them." either. I hate filing reports against people and will always try and talk it out because I don't want to see the other party punished. Far from it. I want to build a decent RP encounter. I had a situation recently I could of reported for, could of gotten the people involved in trouble but I didn't. Because I didn't wish to see them punished, I don't want that. If the person can admit what they did was poor form and work to resolve how they interact next time then I don't see a reason to report them for punishment but that isn't always the case. Sadly, feedbacks, reports, PMs or messages often fall on deaf ears to the point people just make light of it or call the person "salty" with "ooc hate" and go back to doing what they were doing before. There's no self reflection. There's no change and there's no "oh, gosh I suppose we did do a piss poor job at RP that day we should try to do better next time." At the end of the day, nothing is different and all that has happened is now the aggressors feel more compelled to be more aggressive to you next time you run into them. In the end, it's easier to scatter out to the less populated areas of the map and chance encounter a small group or solo player and RP with them instead. Because at least then you know the RP will be bearable and workable and you won't get killed for coughing when someone told you to Shut the fuck up and you were "non-compliant." by clearing your throat. I like hostileRP, I like RP and I want to build stories with people who are peaceful, hostile or in between. My thoughts aren't always echoed in this community I feel though.

    People who complain about hostile RP don't like to lose and have their effort spent on gearing/building/roleplaying destroyed or time being taken by something out of their control. People who do hostile RP love to win over others. This often leads to too much focus on PvP and disregard for quality of role play in order to keep winning. This in turn results in these groups taking it too far and their play style dominating other groups, bordering on harassment and griefing other players. People could care less about their gear and selfish needs and be open minded about hostile RP more considering the setting we are playing in, that would be great. People could do hostile RP in moderation and not initiate on everything that moves because "that's who we are", that would also be great. That's my opinion.

    Personally Dead Matter looks interesting and promising, but it’s not available and I’m not putting down money on another early access zombie game. Miscreated is really fun from what I’ve played but it’s playedbase is only 800 or so people and you can’t mod it yet. Personally I don’t see why everyone dislikes Miscreated as it’s come a very long way recently, I would say look into that game again. It’s base building isn’t trash and works, the environment is extremely interesting, and it has a lot of gameplay features. I tried looking for an RP community on it as well and most have shut down, so the market is there for the taking. I would support an Arma 3 mod if it was something like the Arma 3 HAARP series and heavily modded to something similar to Frankie’s modded server that he makes videos on.

    I completely agree with this statement ^ Just because you may have had more important life matters in the past few months that didn't allow you much time to play video games, doesn't mean that you shouldn't be able to voice your opinion on very important matters that will affect you once you return. Sorry but this whole mindset seems very thin. Why should people get extra treatment for playing more than others? I used to play 24/7 for months and months straight when I was unemployed and I am now working 2 jobs and barely get time to play games, and when I do I want to be able to voice my opinion and not be put down as "Phoenix doesnt play enough, she shouldn't be able to vote on game changing matters" That's very hurtful. Because I'm very jealous of people who can play more than me and I wish I could go back to the days where I ran Outrun or Viridian and played 24/7 but I can't because I have to work to pay bills. It's just how it is and excluding people from being part of changes in the community because they're trying to juggle work, life and spare time is really quite drastic.

    I see the intent behind this and I think that while it appears to be coming from a good place and may seem like a good idea in theory, in practice it is going to be a nightmare. There have been reports in the past where people have taken a gamble and lied, then video has turned up showing that they have clearly lied, but this has come from both people making the report and also from people who are reported, but I would think that this is a very small minority of reports. Are there times when someone makes a report and the person responding who always has video of every little thing is suddenly without any video? YEP, and its highly suspicious, but better to not assume because you could be wrong, hence why there is already a "we won't find a rulebreak if its only word for word" practice. Adding this is only going to overburden and add something unnecessary to hostile RPers, who arguably have to be far more familiar with the rules and, the good ones at least, know how to straddle the rule line and make someone think they might cross it without actually crossing it. Admittedly, there are bugs that come into play for initiations at the moment (e.g. the voip bug) and people who are probably taking advantage of that, but at the same time there isn't really much difference to when there are only word for word reports. I mean if someone initiates and the other person doesn't hear and the person initiated on has video, it falls back on the initiator to front up with evidence anyway to prove their claim of "voip bug" doesn't it? And then what happens if theres a word vs word situation where a person claims to have been initiated on then the other person denies it and says the person who made the report was the one that initiated? How are you really going to know who is telling the truth here if both parties don't have video? Would you just word vs word the report anyway, or issue points and some time off to both parties even though one of them is clearly lying but you don't know who? Also, what happens if your recording craps out or your software doesn't work. People keep mentioning shadowplay, but there have been times when this simply hasn't worked for me, and it would seem a bit stupid to suddenly find myself in a position where through no fault of my own, I can't produce a recording, especially in light of the fact I have never been reported but have taken many hostages and robbed many people (although admittedly, not for a while). Reports at times have been, or at least appear to have been used as "weapons" to try and get people banned (not just against hostile rpers and not just by non-hostile rpers) when the salt levels inevitably reach their peaks from time to time, and I think you could possible be adding another weapon to the arsenal of salty players and/or players that want to get others banned and out of the community for whatever reason. I also don't see the logic in denying people a whole branch/style of RP to those without adequate recording software and/or hardware and limit them to only non-hostile (at least from an initiating point of view) RP, as that is what you will be doing, giving priviges to people based on their hardware, software and/or internet connection. I am sure with more tools (if you don't already have them) it will make it easaier for staff to monitor people and/or groups who keep getting reports made against them and keep using the same excuse, and if you don't have the numbers why not recruit more staff? If worst comes to worst (although even then I don't think it's the greatest idea) if the same person or group were constantly getting reported (and a few guilty verdicts in reports) for the same or similar things and there was a staff decision that the group was pushing their luck, then maybe you could implement this for a set period of time against that group/person, but even then I think my above comments still stand, especially with regards to reports being used as weapons.

    When we created the The Press, we had hostileRP in mind, as it's our favourite form of RP. We were happy to see people either hating or loving us depending on what they had heard IC or experienced when we met them in game. For that reason, I wouldn't really say we're passive, since we love inciting hostileRP, we just never fought back because only one/two of us can stand PvPing in this shit game and preferred to prioritise RP over PVP. But I do agree with you, that more passive groups should try to be more receptive towards hostileRP.

    Coming from experiences of getting robbed and being the robber, I think the problem is that some hostile groups are too worried about focusing on the PvP aspects of a hostile situation compared to the RP aspects of a robbery. Some people will experience long states of quiet because the person on the other end is WAY too focused on TS chatter. Some people get the whole short robbery gig because the person involved chose a horrible time/position to actually initiate their hostilities, and when you get into the whole group warfare aspect of things, robbing someone from a rival/enemy group becomes not about the RP, but about the inevitable firefight that comes after it because before the person puts their hand up, they've already quickly given their location over TS. Add that atop the whole shitty cycle of people not straying from the whole basic torture + execution cycle, and hostile RP can get really stale really fast. And don't get me fucking started on the whole shitty bringing memes and shit into RP. Yuck. I could also add the entirely unnecessary 'shit talk after a person dies' stuff that happens that I see all the time in PvP montages. If it is still the case that people can hear shortly after they die, this doesn't at all help with the salt shit. There is no way that you can convince me that the kind of shit talking that people do IC after they kill someone is legitimately IC. It's not. You aren't fooling anyone. So there are a lot of factors that I feel are the problem. I also wish that those taking the criticism don't immediately refer to, "lol he's salty" kind of an attitude, because although some of the criticism they take is clearly that, most feedback to hostile groups gets pushed aside and not taken seriously because of a few bad feedback apples.
