This isn't talked about enough. The amount of offensive (read: passive aggressive) posts have gone way over the top. It has pushed me to the point of wanting to leave the community, as for the moment the forums are my only connection to DayZRP since I'm trying to figure out what the fuck to do in game.
If only I had recorded more in the beginning months to show how it's REALLY changed, or even video from the very first version of the TP (although, I'm sure there are a video or two on youtube somewhere). DayzRP has slowly been changing towards better rules and more RP ever since then, and there are a certain mindset of individuals who have fought it the entire way.
Can you really blame those certain individuals though ? They joined a server with a no KoS rule and more or less optional RP aspects, but with the main focus on group combat. It's everyones right to try and fight to conserve something that you love, right ? But sure enough, they lost.
Many chose to get themselves permabanned instead of just leaving but in the end it's the same thing, only difference being that some managed to stir up a little bit of drama in the process, who cares.
One thing that just crossed my mind is that a lot of the anger of those vets could be explained by the way decisions are made around here. While the community usually discusses everything, Rolle and his chosen staff members have the final say. This is something that goes against everything that those of us who live in democratic societies ( approx. 99,69% of the forum members ) have been tought to be right since elementary school.
Especially considering that I am not the only one who thinks this community is "a giant political game" as Deadplex put it this might be mainly a subconscious issue but if this was a political state it sure as hell wouldn't be a democracy and we never voted for our El Presidente.
Which means people who wanted the community to develop differently than it did due to certain decisions staff made over the years feel like they never had their rightful chance to vote against those new laws our little internet country has nowadays.
Oh well, kinda drifted off topic here I think, what was I gonna say... ah yeah:
Viva La Revolution !
