  1. The past few months I spent in Kaua'i, Hawaii. Sleeping Giant Hike: Of course I had to slam a cold one at the peak for y'all fam And here's a little edit I put together of my first week there.

    Battle for the Castle! Event Over, House Wins.

    your boi Jake Takara is back, and he's w/ The House of course.
  3. Yo bois it's good to be back. Spent some time on Kauai, Hawaii on Temp Duty Yonder (TDY) doing some training. Glad to see some old faces back around, and sad to see some gone. Look forward to catching up with y'all and enjoying this new patch, or at least trying to with all these bugs lmao.
  4. Now I'd like to start off by saying I don't mean to come across as just complaining, I would just like to find a solution because it's been near impossible for me to RP. So since I've come back from deployment and started playing again I've noticed the server seems to be lagging so badly that even VoIP was almost indistinguishable. Not to mention all the desync I've encountered, etc. Now I don't know if this has to do with my own internet connection, or if other's have been experiencing similar problems, which is kind of the point of me making this thread. I know people I play with have experienced similar symptoms as well, so my question to everyone is what is the cause, and what can we do? If anything at all. Is this just classic clunky DayZ being classic clunky DayZ? The new patch not being optimized? Is it the server that we are using? Is it the server cap? What do y'all think?
  5. Yeah, I suspect the vehicles perhaps? After the persistence wipe last night every single vehicle you found was working, and maybe with so many vehicles moving around, it's causing the lag. I know our group was rolling around with like 5 cars lmao.

    STATUS UPDATES (POLL)

    I was put on final warning for being an absolute edgelord in status updates. I honestly think I was the first one to get this punishment and the reason for this rule being created, sorry lads. I didn't realize that they were revoked indefinitely even if I appealed my final. I know Rollando already spoke on the matter but just to throw my 2 cents into the hat and potentially change his mind, I think if someone has proven themselves as being a good community member and staying active for 3 months and had their final warning appeal approved status updates should be given back?

    Bring back Dynamic groups with limitations

    I remember rolle saying something along the lines of, you're just mad because you don't like the new rule, we've made controversial rule changes before that are just the norm now, i.e. char names in game. Well It's been quite a while now and I think we can all agree that it isn't working, in your attempt to rid of confusion you've just created more.

    Allow the robbery for items once again.

    You didn't read what I typed did you? Rolle doesn't give a finark m8.

    It's your friendly neighborhood Flashy droppin' in to drop some sense bombs on all yall. This is all you guys need to realize how meaningless it is to voice your opinion or submit your feedback, it's honestly a massive waste of time. Rolle is going to create the rules for the server however he sees fit, regardless of what the majority thinks, regardless if he's only played 17 hours, regardless if it eats the community from the inside out because he knows you guys are all still going to play and populate the forums. Why is that? No fuckin' clue mates, probably because we've all made good bonds and friendships around this server and it's become more of a social platform to chit-chat than a fun post-apocalypse "simulation" like it used to be. It's hard to sever those ties, and also I think a lot of people are sticking around hoping Rolle will one day just change his mind and bring us back to the good old days, that's why I'm here and that's why I'm trying to keep my nose clean seeing as how I'm up against the edge, but goddamn everytime I come on here and see some stuff like this I feel like jumping (metaphorically).
  10. Whats up with RP nowadays being so stale... Everytime I get on it's the same fuckin' thing. > Run into populated area > See someone > They walk straight up to me, " Oh hey there! " > I reply, " uuuh, hi? " > We have typical filler conversation like... where are the people, you sound american, oh shucks this weather, nice clothes, I'm looking for x clothes. > As this is happening a fire place materializes between us. > man sits > emotes pulling out cigarette ( because good rper ) > So how'd you get to chernarus? > readscharacterbackstoryverbatim.txt > you? > readscharacterbackstoryverbatim(2).txt > Nice. > Nice. This is why hostile RP has always been my typical brand of RP, because it's so much more interesting, it's the fuckin' apocalypse. You aren't going to run around and act like everybody's friendly neighbor. You're going to be apprehensive to even approach people, scared of certain groups, and areas. Not just running up and tippin the cap to any old fuckin' stranger. But I digress.
  11. I'll start. Also I'd like to use this medium to have intellectual discussions with people about topics that people usually can't seem to talk about without losing their shit. If staff is watching, please take care of those who start to bash, use hate speech, or just generally break community rules here, I'd like to keep this mature and respectful much like Steven Crowder does. <3
  12. Flashy

    Change how flaming points are dealt with?

    I agree
  13. Actually I think you were, the name Hondo sounds familiar.
  14. No one is bashing anyone, please don't put words in my mouth, I'm on thin ice as it is... I'm saying I haven't had good experiences recently with RP and I believe the cause of that is a lack of fear and people being generally over-friendly. I literally tried my hardest to be a cunt in Lop, disregarded their rules, told people to fuck off, started a fight, still no initiation.
  15. Most of my ideas require people on my side to execute well, and people who can actually pvp. However most of these people I have have in mind are on thin ice like myself, on a server that looks down upon pvp/hostile RP. So they're sick and tired of being hated on for trying to enjoy their particular brand of roleplay, and don't play anymore. Which tbh, I'm getting pretty close to doing the same.
  16. Hells yeah dude I too was a more left swinging sort of dude, closer to the center really mind you, but honestly that was because I wasn't fully aware of all the statistical and factual evidence available on most of these issues. I feel like a lot of the left base their arguments and political agenda based entirely on emotion rather than logic. Like guns for instance, are guns used to kill people? By some people yes, a leftist with good intentions mind you, wants to save lives. Their idea? ban the tool used to kill people, that should solve it right? Well logically speaking, banning the guns they're talking about, wouldn't in fact solve anything.These big scary black "AR's" are the cause of less than 1% of mass shootings, and these are the ones they want to ban. These so called "Automatics" that are so easy to get your hands on, not the case. You need a class 3 license to even do so, which is a pain in the ass to get, and in a lot of states, isn't even an option. That is if they actually mean like full-auto when they say "automatic" and not semi-automatic. Most of them don't even know the first thing about guns, like round size, how they operate, their real purpose, etc. They're just so caught up in the hype of people getting killed in these shootings, which of course is bad, and start throwing around all these non-sensible gun control bills. I think more people should open themselves up to the other side and their ideas and at least listen, you might change your mind, you might find some middle ground, but instead everyone stays inside their bubble of media, being constantly told the same things over and over and never hearing the other side of it.
  17. So apparently the WAY you say stuff matters now lads. New rules and all that. So you can go up to someone and if you say it nice enough it's not an initiation. "Hey man I think you should put your hands up" Not because you're robbing him of course but because he just got done running and is winded, and you're just trying to help him catch his breath. Hopefully this doesn't cause any confusion for anyone in the future and, I mean worse case scenario, possibly get someone permanently removed. Imagine how sad that would be Try it out next time you're playing on DayzRP. <3
  18. I mean if it's believe that it wasn't an initiation then I guess my question is considered answered and the thread is pointless to carry on. Especially with how toxic it has gotten. Requesting this is /closed.
  19. My only question is had the guy who said he was walking into a sniper's shot, and that dusty would be shot if he kept on, shot dusty for carrying on. Would he get hit for invalid initiation? This would solve the entire argument tbf.
  20. Fair point. However, I just don't think the ban on these rifles is cool. Maybe make people take a firearms safety class before owning one, reoccurring mental exams, gun ownership age even. I just don't think it's unfair to ban these weapons based on a few situations. There are roughly 30k lives taken from firearm incidents yearly including suicide in the United States where as there are AT MINIMUM 500,000 lives saved WITH firearms each year in the United States.
  21. And what do we do in the event that the government decides to go the wrong direction, begins to strip rights, and harm the people. Does this seem unlikely this day and age? Sure. Is it impossible? No, countries have undergone drastic changes in very short periods of time and very recently and the people did not have the means of protecting their rights against the government due to the government being the only ones with access to rifles that regular people did not. Now this is an extreme, and very hypothetical, but it is what our country was founded on, fleeing a tyrannical government, and when we made our own, the founding fathers wanted to make sure that if it were to go the wrong direction, or happen again, then We The People would have means of stopping it.
  22. He has been made into a meme, however I don't think he IS a meme tbf.
  23. That honestly sickens me, society nowadays is getting so ridiculously bombastic and just plugging their ears and shouting their ideals at the top of their lungs. Instead of talking about these things at a table, like adults, and attempting to find a middle ground. Which is why I love his change my mind series so much, because that's literally exactly what he does.
  24. Wait, I didn't hear about this? Why are they blocking his content???? Yes I know I really would like to open up a discussion on that but I know about the sensitivity of that topic on this website and it's a shame. His video on it was excellent and I wish more people could actually open up that dialogue without getting so upset and understanding each other's side.
