I kind of feel for this dude as this seems to be a situation that happens a lot to new/solo players nowadays, the last time that i logged into RP was to see how the little server events would go, I hadn't been on RP in a few months so I figured fuck it let's see what's up. There was a murder mystery event going and everyone was looking around for killer in the apartments of the main city. I shit you not the second the killer shows up in a window to scare the people on the road some goon in an orange armband(Violent Kind) shouts out to get that muthafucka and unloads a mag into the window where he is, killing the person roleplaying as the murderer, as you can imagine the event gets really awkward from there as people try and act like the killer is still out there. Now I decide to say to the person to stop being a monkey, me being in a hostile group many a time i figured that would maybe a little hostile interaction interaction going or maybe I'd just get told to fuck off. Well instead I immediately got surrounded by the rest of the 10 goons and told to put my hands up, I had forgotten that this was 2021 DayzRP and we immediately initiate on anyone who gives a reason, probably because the server pop is so low and these interactions are few and far between now, i proceed to have some of the worst hostile roleplay of my life, i mean who would of guessed that a hostage taker can't actually come up with roleplay when he decided to take someone for calling him a monkey, in the end i get beaten and told never to come back to the only city on the map ever again or I'll be killed on sight. All in all pretty funny experience, and i know some people will say wElL wHy dIDn'T yOu rEport and my reason for not doing that is because I don't care enough anymore, to me it just kind of reflects the standard of Hostile Roleplay on the server by probably the only group of people who still do it anymore, and i can see why OP got pissed when it happened to him.
I'm assuming that this Kerch group is the newest iteration of hostile roleplay from the same people that made VK as I can tell from some of the posters here, and I just wanna say get a little creative with your fucking hostage RP fellas, I saw someone mention "overtly" hostile groups like Anarchy and Cerb(both of which I was apart of) as a comparison and I can tell you that each time we robbed someone we definitely did more than stop and frisks or robbing someone and immediately telling them to fuck off, especially because if we didn't do that staff would be on our ass faster than a fly to shit. I don't wanna have to be the guy to lecture someone on hostile RP but at least do the bare minimum and explain to them your purpose or what you do in the area, give them your name so they actually have someone to hold a grudge against, maybe even get a little creative and turn them into someone useful and give them a little mission against someone else in exchange for supplies and a friendly relationship with your group. Depriving someone of information when you take them hostage just makes it such a one sided experience for the person being a hostage and it's just not fun.
Now this certainly isn't to say that Kerch or any of the groups from this click of people is the reason for low pop on the server, there are so many other glaring problems with the server that me and many others have pointed out that far outweigh the severity of shitty hostile roleplay, but it certainly doesn't help when a new players first hostile encounter is "Put Hands up let me frisk ploz" and them essentially being told to fuck off, that's more just the cherry on top of a shit sundae.
As a side note I love how the most common response when threads like this are made is for the old guard to condescend or basically tell the guy he's wrong, the classic is always to say BUT THEY HAVE STELLAR RP when someone is talking about a specific group of people, come on now lad, we all know that's cap with a capital C, I haven't seen stellar RP on this server in a loooong time(including myself of course lmao, i'm pretty shit ). such a great way to keep the new players around right guys
