    What do you want from us?

    1. Give the LM's their tools. Seriously. 2. Events should be hosted on active servers, not separate hives, they should be a middle ground between large scale and small dynamic events and effect more than just a succeed? Y/N outcome. 3. Recruit Staggs. 4. Profit. In all seriousness though, you're doing your jobs well, but I think perspective has been lost and interest testing should be done beforehand. Operation Molotok was interesting but injects a story line into otherwise already established stories. Get involved with groups and random groups of survivors, add to their experiences and drop threads to a greater tapestry in the process. I have so many ideas but none that I'll just word-vomit here, food for thought.

    Large Groups

    No I can assure you this isn't correct. Before I joined the Vultures, which was extremely recent by the way, I never had a concern with finding role play in a litany of locations across the map.

    Large Groups

    Quite frankly, I lack an understanding not of your post, but of your point. If you feel that larger groups are detracting RP form the server population not involved in a large group, then it makes clear that the issue is your reluctance to become involved with a large group. I have never, not from any of the larger groups I've interacted with, seen any of them turn away RP with individuals unless in a tense or hostile situation. These groups also leave their bases plenty, allow others inside and promote interactions and role play as long as you're a "fit" for said group. What it sounds like to me apart from the fact that you're not entirely sure of a solution to the point you're not 100% sure you're making, is that ultimately you've likely had a poor experience at some point, or feel left out from the ongoing inter-group story lines. Yet I can vouch for several in which have included newer players in their stories, without the need to absorb them into their roster, it's quite refreshing actually. I query this, have you isolated yourself perhaps? Instead of the other way around. It is extremely easy to blame large groups for what I can only assume is your own feeling of isolation, a feeling you're quite allowed to have, but I do not necessarily gauge this as an issue with said groups, given your responses. For example @DookieCS, you yourself said: But then preface that by saying: Clearly if 50% of present server population is in one place, a story line of some kind has been developed, this is the literal antitheses to internalRP and I can assure you it's not purely hostilities either from experience. So, what groups are we talking about here, and what can they actually do that they aren't doing currently? Because you haven't actually stated an idea here but an opinion guised as a suggestion, guised as an idea. Which is why you've received such confusion from members of the community on your post here today. I can only assume you're referencing the Vulture, Wolfpack and Legion presence in Cherno, which I can assure you is a lot more complex than a "nesting ground."

    Barb wire

    I don't think this requires much of a discussion from my perspective, though I encourage others to continue, simply given both in-game and video evidence it's clear the item does not quite work as intended. Only our developers know if a fix is upcoming, and if it isn't, the item itself or the damage it does should be disabled in the interim. +1

    Allow Megaphones to be More Viable

    -1 There are too many variables. In a perfect game we could guarantee that the initiation was heard by all parties being initiated on, that the said party could then realistically identify who actually is attacking them, and then make the clear decision on whether or not to use their defender rights. What complicates matters with megaphones and any distanced initiation is that the defending party does not have any real chance of understanding who is involved, how many and how to correctly identify them, putting the party in a position where they are potentially surrounded by 2 hostiles, or 10. Yes we could implement a rule stating you have to call out your name, who you are initiating on and how many men you have, but this leads to: This adds unnecessary ambiguity to most if not all hostilities engaged in this manner, and while I understand it's not the intentions of the OP or anyone here for that matter, to use these initiations for rule breaking purposes; lines have been toed and will continue to be moving forward. I am not for this not because I want to limit the available options for our hostile RP'ers, their role play is just as valuable and necessary as everyone else's, but it leads me to my following point: Inevitably this leads to furthering potential limitations to RP, while I am more than aware of situations in which folk have gone straight to gunfire as opposed to talking their way out of a subject, megaphone initiations have the unfortunate side effect of the mentioned defenders not being able to engage in communications with the initiator - naturally because he/she is too far away. I feel I must reiterate for those likely already wanting to respond before me clarifying this, I am not accusing hostile RP'ers of forgoing the RP experience in a hostile situation, but this can implement the risk of doing so, and in addition with the above, makes for a slightly more nuanced subject than simply, "let's allow this again." It sacrifices clarity, the ability for the defenders to engage in return, and for those involved to act appropriately IC. There are many situations in which it could work, and many more in which it couldn't. Despite that, I agree, I would like to see more variety in initiations and how they're done, PA systems and radios as mentioned are much more complicated and we won't touch on that here, but if things can be worked out to provide total clarity, I'm actually all for it. Based on the information I have though and can surmise from experience, see the above -1.
  6. Hence the reason their hidden statistics have been nerfed compared to items found on the in game loot table. Edit: I digress, back on the actual topic of the thread perhaps ladies and gents?

    Let's Talk About Dexamphetamine

    Personally? I think that spamming their usage should be a lot more detrimental to the health considering the dosage we're talking about here. Abusing any substance should come with side effects and currently Dex has the relatively benign effect of making you slightly ill after taking them, on occasion. It should be an evident calculation of how much you're willing to screw your personal health over to push your body as far as it can go. Reserved for escapes or pushes into hostile territories, but certainly not left to be as abusable as it is now regardless of poll results.

    Bipod Attachment - M4s/AKs

    The bipod attachment in general has suffered for some time now in DayZ:SA as a whole beginning back in 0.45 and it's clear it's not working well now. Admittedly however I see it as doing little to no harm in its present state, those who have the item already attached to their weapons won't have them removed by the wiping of the item from the spawn table. For those who are aware of the present glitch my only recommendation is to not attach it to the firearm of choice, but there are a few I know who like to have it present despite the lack of functionality. Overall it's harmless but if it's a simple fix to allow it to be removed from present weaponry then of course this has my +1, if it's a more complex matter which I have a suspicion it might be, then there are many more things I'd prefer to see sorted first.
