The staff team have reviewed this report and arrived at the conclusion above.
@Drew7822 gets taken hostage near Kabanino and it becomes known that it's a person that Wolfpack wants to question so they start running him down towards Chernogorsk. During the run, @Drew7822 gives @WongRP and @NorwayRP a hard time during their questioning, to the point where it started to seem a bit over the line.
Yes, we understand that you are trying to do the standard military schtick, but at some point, it just doesn't work and ends up just seeming trollish.
At the end when you finally meet up with the Wolfpack, your attitude with this starts to be even worse and gets to such a point that we can't see it as anything else than bad RP.
As for what you could do better, is to RP out more uncertainty, unease, and added some more worry and fear into your RP, seeing as you have now been traveling with them for an extended amount of time and you see they do not want to budge with their questioning... not to mention that it wasn't a sensitive question they were asking in the first place.
So for the future remember that acting stubborn might seem like the right way to go, but at some point, it just comes across trollish and stagnates the RP.
Now as for the Wolfpack and the claims on them for UHD:
In this case, we did see a repeated pattern of assumptions made when it came to the health of the hostage and almost no attempts on figuring out the actual state of his hunger and thirst.
As for @WongRP and @NorwayRP they did show some good hostage care up to the point of the meetup.
At this point, there might have gotten a bit confusing when all meet up, but the Wolfpack members should have checked up on their hostage when he got handed to them, and even more so after he got shot by them.
We do have the situation Where he has water on him, and he states he is thirsty. Yes, maybe a bit short and a little unclear, but with how the hostage care rule is written at that point there should have been warning lamps flashing for the Wolfpack.
Instead, there was no water before your talk, to which we can see he was about to go for the water, to the point the "No" got given out. At that point, it would be clear NVFL if he pulled the bottle out. We do not feel that it's a proper way to use the hunger and thirst system as a way of execution/torture, as torture fine but at some point, it could have been done as emoted.
Yes, we feel that its something that could make for good RP, having torture like this. However, we see that as safer to be emoted out, and not using the game mechanics, as it runs the risk of shortening the RP, as it unfortunately did here.
For the future, we would recommend you to worry more about your hostage and their state. It's not only up to them to do all the informing, but you do also have large responsibilities as a hostage-taker to make sure your hostage is in good shape and the RP doesn't get abruptly ended with weird situations like this. The hostile RP is almost a symbiotic relationship between hostage and hostage-taker.
To end off with, we wanted to say that in this case, we feel like @NorwayRP and @WongRP did good with the hostage till he was delivered over to Wolfpack's care, and for this, they will not be hit with UHD.
On another note: Yes there might have been some history with all the people involved here in the past, but at certain points both in-game and in their report, people have been acting overly offended and as in some cases might be called salty. We do want to say that we prefer you keep attitudes more respectful and professional the next time around if in similar situations. As a final note: on the claim of potential evidence tampering, after looking through the clips and pov's we do not see anything we would deem evidence tampering
With that said we want to end this with; in this situation, all parties involved could have done better, and we hope that you take this time to look at the situation and learn from it.
