    Same thing happened to me brother. Childhood sweetheart told me, in October, she needed a "biology tutor" to help her pass her exams, which she needed to get into Uni, and that I couldn't see her on Wednesdays anymore. She broke up with me new years day, told me nothing, and strung me along for a month. I came to find out through a few different friends that her tutor had been giving her practical exams for a solid two months behind my back. She even admitted to going on a number of dates with him because I had to cancel our dates, due to my grandma been in hospital, to a close friend of mine. Putting that aside, this will sound cliche but its the truth, it does get better. I know how you're feeling right now, I know it doesn't feel like things are gunna get better, but they eventually do. I nearly drank myself into a coma when my GF broke up with me, I never thought I would get over it, she was the girl I'd been crushing on since we were young. But now, I just laugh about it and if I saw her again, I'd thank her because you don't need people like them in your life, its better to get this shit over and done with than say 10 or 15 years down the line. The one thing that helped me more than anything to get over it all was using the fact that my ex cheated on me as fuel, and you should do the same. If they have the capacity to do something that scummy to you then, simply, fuck them. They don't deserve to be in your life and hell, been a cheat is a label that always sticks with people. Her fling with this new guy won't last, they never do. My ex and her biology tutor lasted from January till the end of Feb and then she was back in my messages asking for forgiveness, you've gotta stay strong and move on. Don't let her walk over you and then take her back, it might be hard but you have to stay strong. Get your ass into the gym, get some new clothes and a haircut and make yourself feel good about your image, and make god damn sure that she's jealous and regrets everything shes done. Last thing I wanna say is this, if you're ever needing someone to talk to, hit me up anytime TL;DR Same thing happened to me, ex lied for two months saying she was seeing a biology tutor, turns out he was giving her practical exams the entire time. Shit gets better, it might not seem that way now, but it truly does. Better she showed her true colours now then say 5 more years down the line. Use her actions as fuel. Fuck them and fuck what they did to you, its one of the ultimate scum bag acts and its a label that will always stick to them. Get yourself some new clothes, get your ass into the gym, and make sure she regrets for every second what she did to you. If you ever need someone to talk to, hit me up whenever you need to.

    Maybe on paper it looks amazing. Yes, a fresh start, amazing new ideas (usually based on trending games or shows...), new changes. But you say that 'WE' make a difference. I'm glad you sincerely believe, that after lorewipe all the boredom from current lore will dissapear, because apparently now "WE" are unable to make a difference but in new lore we'll make things work. New Lore = new me! It's not like the current lore is a giant wall around our RP. We have millions of possibilites what to do, yet everything is boring. Not sure if you've watched South Park (and not sure if I remember correctly that it was in that show), but in one of the episodes called "Simpsons Did It!", they were trying to come up with something original. Sadly every idea they had was shut down by "simpsons did it!", meaning that the idea/prank/story was already shown in Simpsons. By now in DayZ we're at "Simpsons did it!" point. It's hard to create something new, something that wasn't there, something orignal. Groups on forum pages look amazing, interesting, "CANT WAIT TO SEE" on the paper, but usually they are the same group of people with similiar type of RP and nothing changes. The game does not offer us new tools, even the basebuilding is not worth the time (due to crash related wipes), so how will a lorewipe change anything? Maybe for first week or two somebody will be scared of infected, somebody will be a true civilian in need of help etc, but sadly after that it's gonna fall on the same tracks. Friends from old lore will stay together, form together groups, same conflicts will re-appear under different names between "new" factions. There are literally no IG mechanics/goal that could support new lore. No soft skills to grind, no trully persistent buildings (bugs), no impact on the map (terraforming, deforestation etc), anything to work for tbh. There are no losers, people are stubborn to bend under influence of stronger groups, because only thing that can happen to them is death. And you don't lose to much when you die. I fell in love with Life is Feudal because you could build giant settlemets, capture areas with strategic resources and due to it trade. It wasn't a perfect game but at least base-building worked... but that's for another topic Listen, I won't stop anybody from the lorewipe, honestly I would love to play during the lore, when one could RP that he was born after outbreak (be it +20 or +120 years since outbreak), but it's gonna be similiar to the situation around 2015/2016: 1. Community: I wish we could remove zombies, they are really annoying, don't need them 2. Dayz Devs: Conviniently Zombies get bugged, devs leave only 2-3 zombies on whole map 3. Community: Without zombies there's no threat, no point in playing, servers get empty, sadface. Long story short: We are to blame for boring RP in current lore. In new lore there will still be "We" factor that will make things boring again. How will new lore change neverending wars/players mentality? The new lore need support of something COMPLETELY FRESH like new game mechancis, addons, etc.

    I’m not sleepyhead, but when you archive it’s gone for 30 days, then you can bring it back after the 30 days are over. Keeping in mind it will go back to group ideas and you will still need 5 members.

    Dull RP is not a new topic. It pops up every now and then on the forums. The most recent is a lorewipe. This thread is not about the idea of a lorewipe. This thread is about an idea that would hopefully improve RP without needing a lore wipe (because I don't think a wipe is necessary unless we saw a new map.) From my own experience many players and groups lack story arc. The lore is in depth, expanded upon and provides a great setting and backstory, as it should. The next step to creating story is putting players in game. Most players run around, roleplay out interactions and go about their day. There is not a lot of story. Sure events can help sometimes but eventually it SEEMS like it falls back to the basic daily RP. Some groups APPEAR to simply be mass amounts of people. Some groups try to carry out a bit of a plot or story arc. But at the end of the day I also FEEL like RP can get dull and there is a lack of story. So my thought for improving RP is this. Add a new required field on the character page. This field would be titled Character Story Arc. It would only have to be in depth as you want it to be. Maybe a paragraph minimum. It would hopefully have a similar effect to group goals on group pages. It would not only show other people what you hope/plan for your character to do or become but also challenge the players to follow through with their character story arc. Maybe someone says my character will begin as a shy and timid person and slowly become extremely aggressive and crazy. One issue with this idea though is that it cannot be known what will happen in game. We can't know the future. Someone may say their character will shift from good to evil but in game events may shift that idea. UNLESS you follow your plan to a T and react to good situations in a more evil way each time as you progress to that new character type. For example, you begin as a good person. You help someone out who needs it. The next time you meet someone who needs help you reluctantly help EVEN if OOC you really want to. The next time you DO NOT HELP even though there is no reason you can't. So when approached by this idea that we cannot know what is going to happen, we could choose to follow our story arc and respond as we have designed for ourselves. OR we can choose to let the interactions in game control our character changes. Please let me know your thoughts. This is only one idea of many that are out there. I am presenting this idea because I don't want to see a lore wipe. I want to see a proper solution to improve the quality of RP. If you have any other ideas please present them below. Thank you.

    Guess everyone wants to continue the boring RP that is going on right now. Most of you are so negative, Jesus christ think about positives other then focusing on the negatives. If we do a lorewipe the staff team should do event after event in the beginning. Maybe we start like nothing is going on and suddenly the event happens: *You can see jets fly over* *You hear sirens* Then infected are getting spawned in, most people dont have weapons and start running, hiding, asking others for help. It can get so fucking interesting if we all RP that way. I read some comments and all of those people say "its gonna be stale in 2 weeks". Then you make a difference. If all those people who are negative change their RP when the lorewipe happens things are gonna get interesting! Staff can make rules for the lorewipe that will prevent people from doing the Same thing over and over. Things ingame are boring as hell right now, a never ending war with a "cease fire", people sitting at GM all day talking about the weather and noone cares about the infected, psycopaths and other hostile characters because they have seen them so many times. (Still unrealistic but most people these days have no fears for some reason) A big +1 from me if staff prepares it well! And if you are only gonna respond to this reply without any good points I will not argue with you.

    Anti Homie. Betrayal. Spoon Sparker. But I appreciate your concerns community member dawson parker. This is what I said in my original post. I want to make this clear - I don't want a wipe if they devs don't update the game and give us new and better tools to make things less of a headache for staff and LM and event teams.

    I voted no, as Terra said nothing really changes in the long run, I enjoy my stories and I want to keep them. At the end of the day its up to the players to create stories, people are going to role-play what they want regardless.

    I like the idea but it's also the reason why I stream. Last thing I did to show development was this: https://www.dayzrp.com/forums/topic/90427-timeline-of-an-amnesiac-meika-blue/ Which took ALOT of dedication and me to remember on specific days what happened. I'm pretty proud of it though. It showed my characters progress, what was important and what affected her. But goals is a good idea, even though my mind draws blank when I have to write them for myself.

    I agree. I have no clue what is going on in this current lore and would like a new one. I'd say we're at a good state in-game where a lore wipe could come into effect to which it shouldn't ruin tension buildup. The best time would be to wipe with the next big game or mod update.

    I was talking about this recently in Discord with other members. We need to make the server lore more like The Walking Dead where important characters sometimes dies to advance the story instead of having the same reoccurring characters come back every week and live forever like in Gilligan's Island. What I was proposing is a system of strikes where each time you character is executed with a certain amount of witnesses present (to be determined), he should gain a permanent injury related to the method of execution, up until his strikes are out and he's permanently dead. Example; you get taken hostage and shot in the head and left for dead. You come back but now you have a missing eye, they thought they killed you but here you are, wearing an eye patch. You stir some more shit, get executed again, they stab you in the stomach. You come back with kidney failure or some stomach related chronic injury. Next time you get executed, you're dead for good. The best example I could state that could relate is the Governor from the Walking Dead. Got stabbed in the eye, survived. What did he do? He laid low for a long time, tried to change his ways, but ultimately came back around full circle. Now he lays six feet under and the world is better for it. People need to die for stories to make sense. I wanna hear people say things like "Hey remember Yuri that poor bastard? I miss that fucker".
