  1. Honestly the Arma 2 Mod needs to stay dead. It's 5 years outdated and everything you could want from that game can and has been ported to Arm3 which is already started to show its own age. 


  2. The mod has only recently been revived. Therefore all those skins that you and me both bought only amount to a simple username color change. Sorry


  3. I found a plethora of areas of concerns that you should consider changing. 

    • It's always cool to have a theme video, but I promise you that it's much cooler if it's an embedded video so people can watch the video from the DayZRP site. 
    • In order to further understand the cracks in the group, one must look at the character backstory's themselves. Vladimir Makarov's backstory makes little to sense. The VDV were sent to maintain the forced quarantine between Chernarus and Russia. On top of that it wasn't just 5 guys who were sent, it was roughly 50 people. The revolution that is also mentioned is also a fantasy. All those errors mentioned are repeated in Yuri Reznov's story. To make matters worse when friendly community member @Kainbrought initially brought these issues to light with much more detail, no effort at all was made to remedy these poor character pages. Finally Merek Cernek seems to be lost in this group. Was he not a rabid nationalist hellbent on eliminating all communists in South Zagoria? It would take years to re indoctrinate someone in a different ideology if that person had been a nationalist his entire life and killed many men in the name of anti-communism. 
    • The backstory is only one paragraph. When I was in the staff the standard was 3 paragraphs but considering the admins haven't touched one group since I was around anything might go nowadays. 
    • The backstory is filled with many strange twists and unnecessary facts that make the backstory as confusing as the purpose of the group. If Vladimir wants to help this doctor to cure the infection then why steer his group down a dark path? Wouldn't the doctor stand more of a chance of being successful if they stayed a hero group? Why is it important that Wolfgang and Vladimir got drunk together one night? That fact seems kind of just thrown in there for no reason. After stating that Vladimir was in Nordic Battlegroup you say he was considering joining. Was he in Nordic group or wasn't he? Why was he frustrated with the peace they were trying to create? Did he not just spend lots of time helping a doctor find a cure for the disease so that there would be long lasting peace once the outbreak subsided?  Where the fuck did this idea of Robin Hood Socialism come from and how come all of sudden every member in Vladimir group share that? I would've understood pure banditry as it had been alluded to previously, but nothing about socialism has been mentioned. Then the backstory just concludes one paragraph later. Every single line before that essentially just established how Vladimir met every single member and a line or two about what he individually believed and then there's two lines actually devoted to the creation of the group and what it stands for. There really needs to be more depth added to the creation of the group and what it stands for and less about the life of Vladmir. 
    • The Red Book is neat touch
    • A feel as if 'declaration' the wrong choice of words and should be replaced with the word 'code'. Look up the definition and declaration and hopefully you'll agree with me. 
    • You mention in your goals the town of Krasota. Is this even a town in South Zagoria or this a name you plan on giving to a town of your choice?
    • Again where did these communist ideas come from? Anyone who read your backstory would be as confused as I am especially considering there is a hard core nationalist present on the roster. This addition of communism is the weakest point of the group as it has no real foundation anywhere but if this just another communist group then why don't just join the PCC considering your values would be in sync. 

    Overall the group leaves me very confused. Some of the goals are neat and I like the idea of the Red book and the Red Code but this needs a lot work. Good luck. 


  4. Medal of Honor: Airborne

    This was the first real shooter I ever played. Anytime I hear the signature theme music it takes me away back to the days of PS2 singleplayer and split screen only gaming. 

    Minecraft: 

    This game was my gateway into multiplayer gaming and although I don't play it anymore, I can only remember good memories about this game. 


  5. 4 minutes ago, The Traveler said:

    Oh look, the "You aint been on in X ammount of months" defence. 
    Yeah the discussion is dead... 
    LM's are not needed, and if people think they are a necessity, then they are part of this self inflicted stagnation issue. 
    Good luck with the poll guys, im out.

    As usual your posts reflect a fantasy dream land where Tomeran is still a LM, Kovars Market is still around, and we're playing the mod instead of standalone. I would have loved to put forth some of the scenarios you mentioned but with this community and this game, none of those would ever be possible. Instead we had to resort to those events which according to you are a no go. I'm sorry if it wasn't up to your hyper ideological standard but it's what we had to do and we got almost all positive feedback about it. If you had a problem with our events then you should have pushed forward an event or two of your own other than the simple 'Open Air Market at Kovars'  or post some constructive staff feedback instead of bitching after the fact. It's time to come down to reality, and if you can't then maybe you should leave, again. Because this place will never be able to satisfy you like it once did. 


  6. While I did vote yes, I fear that our efforts here may be futile. I'd like to bring to light three recent suggestions where the community voted yes and both would be easy to implement or one case keep the same, and yet the opposite of the community's wishes occurred. 

    Regardless, if the LM was reinstated for some reason (which by looking at Rolle's answers to Mexi on ask the admins doesn't look like it will happen regardless of the poll) it would need to be given much more power than it had before. Back during the mod the LM's were on the same level as admins and they were able to spawn in anything from arma 2, create RCON messages, and archive groups on a whim. Our most recent LM team had none of those powers yet the staff description for LM still stated that it was to be on par with being an admin. Why was the position watered down so much over the years? Being a shell of what it used to be, being LM was tough as in order to do almost anything you had to bug another 'higher up' staff member and get them help you. Therefore, unless the position is amended and allowed its full power, then it's really not even worth bringing back. 


  7. I'm a little confused on what this group is supposed to be? Any reader who glanced at your goals would think this is another iteration of the UN or simply another good matured medical rp group but the fact that you only have one doctor and almost everyone else is simply security has me thinking otherwise. One doctor being surrounded by grunts does not necessarily make you a medical rp group if only person actually has medical expertise. Just consider any scenario where the one doctor isn't online and won't be for some time. What exactly are the 'security' supposed to be doing? 


  8. The lore seems fine now as do the goals. However, this group will need to show that it can be active before it can be considered for approval. Currently there are only two people on the roster actually getting in game with their group characters. You either need to get the others in game with their group characters or cut them. Thanks.
