  1. Dear beloved and incredibly busy staff team, I thank you for your hard work and I mean no disrespect. I believe you all work hard to your best believe in doing what you feel is right. I have noticed something that concerns me a little: In the following I will give an example, (I don't believe I know the player or at least didn't have interaction with them myself to my knowledge). I like to add I think I can see why it was ruled in such a way. I am just still a bit worried about the ruling of a report to false report when the OP didn't get to show his/her full POV with video especially when the report has to do with in game mechanic. No matter if the person was reporting false or not. Even if the person has spite or negative feelings towards the other side their reporting can still be fueled by a true believe that a rule must have been broken and without their point of view in game it seems difficult to me to judge their intentions to be completely without grounds and therefore a false report. 1. A lot of players approach this RP environment with a wonderful mind of thinking everyone plays fair and always wishes to prefer RP over killing the player if they can. This mindset causes great disappointment very quickly since even our self with that mindset can have trouble letting a situation pass where we can get one over the other in game and "win" by killing someone initiating on us. With the current game usually one on one initiations have been mainly ruled as fair game to not comply and not seen as anything wrong with. However the believe the person had and seemed to have been reporting was himself being in a position where in real life a person would not be able to do this kind of quick move as his opponent used the game the way it is to move quick around him and shoot. Most experienced players know you can easily deal with someone if they are close enough to run around them and shoot and I don't think its ever been punished, but I can also see how someone that doesn't keep a LOT of track on what gets punished in reports and has only read the rules would be lead to believe that you can not do this move within the rules. I think in this case video evidence is crucial for the ruling if this person could have really thought they were in a position from their perspective where the person should have had to comply. The report in this case would be: In this case yes the player was made aware the report might not go anywhere by staff without his video evidence shown which the player clearly seems to believe would make the difference to his case (Not saying it does or will but the player does seem to believe his video shows his point better than his words can). I also like to add there have been plenty of cases in the past where even the full staff team were not completely aware that something would result in a rule break (let me give the lie and execution rule as a primary example until even the verdict came out and was re-looked at). I have also seen plenty of cases where some staff members made people aware a report might not go their way or the way the OP may think it and it turned completely different in the outcome to what was believed before. I don't think the staff had ill intent to make to OP stop a report so they also believed it would be best to stop and not waste anyone's time. So neither would be false report or false attempt to stop a report. 2. Now I would like to ask once again with a personally completely made up example what the staff team thinks of the following and how it feels this would or should be ruled even? Example preset: Jane a normal skinny office worker with 0 experience in combat or any type of fighting sport. Another person John plays a muscular combat experienced strong and tall person trained in one on one combat. A) John emoted while standing behind Jane that he is holding Jane with a knife to the throat in a strong grip. To avoid power gaming lets add the John://Does it work? and Jane://yes Now by current game mechanics Jane could easily turn around pull a gun and shoot John (with just a knife in his hand, by in game mechanic, he would have little chance against Jane). However in real life Jane would have no chance against John. B) John holds a shotgun directly to the stomach of Jane facing her he would be able to see if she were to try and move if this was real he would long shoot and notice her moving and she had little chance to live. The game however is full of lag and buggy and you might not notice someone moving until they are already out of range of your gun. C) John holds a gun to Jane from a few meters away I assume it would matter what type of gun so Jane could decide if she can take her chances (think of John holding the worst case scenario gun for Jane to make any tries) and run around him pull her own gun and shoot John. D) Now Jane holds a gun to John from a few meters away I assume it would matter what type of gun so John could decide if he can take his chances (think of Jane holding the worst case scenario gun for John to make any tries) and run around her pull his own gun and shoot Jane. If any of the situations did come to a report I believe video evidence would be rather crucial to see if there was a false report intend or if the person truly believed the other should have played along. Mostly its more a know your audience type of situation and you will find people that would not comply in any situation and in all due to preference or RP and or combat experience and wishes. Even if none would get ruled as abuse of game mechanics I can't seem to think the person reporting would or should get a false report. I feel horrible for the poor staff team but if people truly believe and there is any evidence that way, should they not get the benefit of the doubt that they didn't intend to false report? Thank you for all your help, I just hope to make everyone feel more comfortable in this community and sorry for putting more work on the staff team. To Elmo: I understand your point and from your perspective that you think this way. We might miss a lot and it could well be on my end and to me this case is just putting a bad light on things from my perspective. I love you to correct me if you please take a look at how I see it without all the extra that staff may or may not see that I do not have at my hands. I see a community member that first ran into a situation where he was IC desperately trying to safe his friend and not loose any more time so he had loads of motivation to go against two people trying to hold him up because for him this time spend might mean the death of his friend. He felt that they should have to care about his friend too over OOC wishing to take his stuff or hold him up right there and he stood corrected by staff that there was no rule break. This same community member now once more went into a deep IC story or at least something that he put a lot of thought and effort into wishing to play out something more then just robbing the person, some actual revenge ic. Now that person turned on him in a 1 v 1 situation where he thought he had set things up that the opposite party was sure to have to comply. Once again filled with disappointment of this story also ending with death instead of rp.... he goes to try and reach out on multiple occasions unsuccessfully. Everywhere he looks he gets told if he thinks there might be a rule break to report it, even in the staff help desk. His situation without seeing the set up with video evidence might not get across correctly as he believes and seems to have hope to maybe still be able to play out some of this in RP given the chance to talk to the person which still was denied to him so far. He finally took his last chance and opens a report where staff asks him critical on his reporting rule break which he states he is unsure of in his first line in his report right of the bat. He tries to answer the questions of staff to his best ability with literally his last statement: "So let me get things straight to and check my reasoning here is valid or not. Maybe we should wait until i'm able to upload video evidence." ^This to me shows someone really unsure of their actions and not someone trying to push for punishment, but for clarification. Then the report seems to get its usual logs posted by staff so we see who is the other side for the first time with that person also giving their POV to him for the first time. The report from being opened to closing was all done within 24 hours. If it had just been closed without any punishment for anyone I would only have said ok I would really recommend A) give him a big chance to speak with a mentor in RP that he clicks with and B) to maybe give them a chance to talk which wasn't given before. Considering there was a punishment that harsh dealt, it feels a little rushed from my perspective and it honestly scares me a bit to even attempt to report something unless I have Everything ready right of the bat including all evidence uploaded and even then the moment a staff member shows any doubt I would run and hide in my corner after seeing this and we all know just because a staff member has doubt on a report going through its not always not going through. Yes the actions after weren't honorable and not professional. The community can see that too. A lot of us become like that when we feel unfairly treated or hurt and rushed with. Or have trouble accepting when our dreams get crushed. I always felt safe here and that I could report for a believe of someone else having wronged me. I do prefer to try and reach out and actually be able to speak with the person and even if it turns to nothing it is something that can make all the difference to change your heart about the situation. It might be good for the rest of the community to also see more of what may have been the motivation of staff to have come to such a quick harsh verdict. I do feel there is a little more here to this than what the community can see and I know we have very smart staff that didn't fall on its head.
  2. Hi Welcome sounds like you lead a busy life. Can't wait to see you in action in RP, best of luck here and hope you will have an awesome time!
  3. People travel all the time. From imaginary cabins (places that are no where on the actual server) to other countries and text RP or radio RP while not on the server anywhere. If I ran into someone IC that for some reason feels the need to mention that 5 min ago they were in Chernarus my character would probably just think they have a place next to the border they call that or just are not quite right in the head with the memory or they meant it felt that way... But that would be it and move on with the conversation... like logging out and going to sleep we don't linger that much on where people are all the other times.
  4. I don't really care if anyone switches between the servers as long as its not overly mentioned in RP not like my character would check on them if they really travel between the countries. Similar to people having to log out as long as people don't constantly feel the need to talk about it the rp just keeps going and no one cares that you "log" or "server switch". We ignore away a lot and that is hardly much more to ignore... the amount of times people log out and 'sleep" but while in their "sleep' people hang in the imaginary in between world of NO country and do all sorts of things on the radio while being untouchable, haven't heard anyone have a problem with that.
  5. Well due to the server queue priority making any queue pay to play I prefer enough servers at any time so there is no queue XD (I know I am selfish) If there was no priority queue I wouldn't care much about a queue but the way it is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and since there are more then 80 players during the night combined on both servers I would prefer if both stay open untill priority queue is not a thing anymore so forever
  6. Chernarus will always be my home, sometimes people just enjoy a holiday and this time we went to see Livonia but its a holiday and I wish to be able to come home anytime too
  7. This ^ just means whoever volunteered first gets to pick the rest who joins too. To be fair no one stops anyone from creating a second mentor program and dealing with the leadership of that and spending their free-time to write it up, advertise it and then talk to people that apply to become mentor and work with them yourself. When you realize that having to already deal with 13 other people is difficult enough and costs already enough time it doesn't mean you have to pick more to work with you. ( I didn't apply officially myself but was going to however was already made aware they have their hands full with the current team and not everyone wants to work with everyone or for that matter works with everyone well)... I am sure they will do great and anyone that also wishes to help can grab some initiative and build a second program I am sure depending on how you advertise it you may get a different crowd applying to be helped. And if you decide to share the work and make one program just to help understanding the rules only and the other helps with actual Rp difficulties. A lot of us are not the best readers and to learn the rules by doing can be more encouraging and fun. Plus that doesn't hit on some people's pride as a role-player if its just about learning the rules themselves that doesn't mean you need support with your actual Roleplay. Lots of love and good luck.
  8. I wish you all best of luck and fun. I would join if I could however I will be working at the time of the event.
  9. As someone that really doesn't care about all the gear in those bases, I am a little baffled about the need to get into the base in the first place XD. Like I don't store stuff in a base myself nor do I take any out. If I get into a base I try to RP my way in and not break in. For RP they seem to be only good to separate people to have conversations behind locked doors and to feel safe for a while behind the walls. No one ever only wants to sit in a base, (they get bored too) so people can still get picked off when leaving their safe zone. Bases outside of the RP reason seem to otherwise just become a big gear thing either for those wanting to rob it for that gear or use it to store. I think any base with far too much loot stored is over the top however when people rob a base and take every last bit of said base is the same thing and clearly too much. If people were on both sides a little more respectful we might all have a bit more fun. Like don't loot store too much and if you find such a place that has too much stored don't clear it out to nothing cause then you just proof them right to store even more. Take what you need and leave the base with something more for the next robber to come along or the owners, So they don't feel driven out of the area and you don't have to go and search for their new place again complaining not to find anyone. Idk I personally am not to bothered with bases so If someone has something good I feel like why not let them enjoy it. Plus whenever someone has something good it attracts loads of attention of people wanting what they have so I rather not have it XD not worth dying for lol.
  10. Best of luck I love stories hehe hope you make it so maybe we get to hear some!
  11. In this case you misunderstood a little what I meant by short term.... its short term if all is wrapped up and done and the RP ends there... like if you had killed the two women during the robbery and nobody around to know and they would not remember having been robbed... like short term for me is if the RP is completely wrapped up that there could not be a follow up unless it is your own character running around and showing signs or telling people that you robbed and killed the two women. So your encounter with the two women could be preparation for long term like you said just let what happens, happen . I would since they were let go and run around to tell the tale class this under long term or medium term depending when you and them wrap this up, but yeah everyone lived to tell the tale. If Either side had killed the other during the encounter so one side had to forget it then I would class it as short term, since it can't be used in further RP.
  12. I like all three kinds of RP, each has their perks of course just wondering what the rest of the community thinks currently, like what kind of Rpers do we have? Are we currently a more short, long or medium story building community? I believe all 3 are great however my personal order is: Long Term is the one I love the most, then Medium and last short term Rp. Long term story building: I prefer to have small things happen during encounters, take my time to build things up over many weeks or month. Example: for many month it was a thing between Alkis and Penny to randomly once a month run into each other. Each time they would just see a little more of the others character, slowly notice changes. Be someone that knew them before things happened and changed and this way become also a special constant to each other by still being around. It creates a special kind of bond that only grows over a long period of time. Medium story building: I prefer to deal with my Rp as I come across it in the next few days or weeks. Trying to push to get somewhere and get progress to build my character and change it. Example: Often done through groups, example I was with WolfPack and got to experience relationships change between each other and the other groups and with them becoming more powerful them also changing and becoming more hostile, they used to be a good group but nothing is just pure good or evil. With them experiencing more hostility and more power they also started to rob people themselves and overpowered smaller groups. Then changing back, trying to keep the moral compass and redeem themselves in some way returning to their roots and back. Like a constant struggle to find their place in this new apocalyptic world. Its like every set back is a gift, fights lost changes the way they approach things and changes them. They stay and rise and fall in a place and move to the next. Sometimes within a few days others in weeks. Short term story building: I prefer to wrap up my RP quickly within the same day or RP session. Putting effort into meeting whoever I need to get things settled quickly. Action is my life, not playing running simulator all day. Example: I ran into someone and get robbed. Who likes a loose end? Time to go and hunt them down. Lets see what tortures things come across my mind, before I wrap this up and kill them at the end of the session. Today is the day I want to have fun and who cares about tomorrow? The only way you get progress is if you make things happen and not just run around pointlessly all day. I would love to ask what other people feel like which type of RP is for them? Which do you enjoy the most and why? Maybe you even have an example for the type of Rp you prefer the most? A story you had happen to you in RP? What was it like? Quick or build over long time? What made it so memorable? Hoping people share some stories they had fun with in RP I have so many I love to think back on. Maybe a discussion why anyone prefers one over the other.
  13. When you spend the day with your mother's cousin's 7 year old daughter and she is exactly like me right now XD even running around making the same happy sounds as I do hahahahha I love mini me 😄    

  14. Good Interview totally understand the wish to get along with people. Sadly 50% is not in our hands but theirs. I had good times meeting Hope and it was fun the fear Diadora brought to the server. Thank you for sharing so much.
