    Are you planing to elaborate further on your „lore“?

    Yes

    My fault for not actually leaving feedback and posting a NY tik tok meme. With the name change it seems more like a Italian crime family and that’s pretty cool. If you wanted to you could actually make the group based out of Italy and that would be pretty cool. 
     

    Also the time timeline of the actual group is in detail down to ww2 with Benito being killed and that’s pretty epic cuz my g pa’s on both sides were from Naples during that era

    Hopefully you can make this work with all the other feedback given too

     

    Thank you Diamond -

    Going to write some more lore elaborating on that time period tomorrow, and then blend that story into the present. Just need to finish my draft and update the page

    Just saying. No group will get approved without a LM plus one. Brushing off my feedback, which I posed in a polite way toward you, is a sure fire way to get a -1 from me. You don’t seem interested in the lore nor making your group work with it. I’m not even against a western group in chernarus but just wanted some more details and explanations so it made sense.  

    Have fun running dynamic.

    Your attitude and regard to not only community members who are being helpful toward you and the lore is disheartening. A Italian mafia gang in Chernarus is both overdone and makes no sense in this lore. I was willing to work with you to make a group that makes sense. To provide pointers and help shape something that fits your needs and desires but works within the lore we have. Since you seem to be not interested in that then you won’t get a approval from me. 

    Brayces, 

    It is not that we brushed off your feedback, but your feedback seemed extremely misinformed and as if you genuinely did not read the thread - I wasn’t saying that sarcastically. 
     

    Please read silvers reply above because he breaks it down piece by piece. Most of your feedback you gave had already been suggested and then the feedback you gave on it personally about your issues were literally wrong/inapplicable which could be seen if you read the thread. 
     

    Some things silver doesn’t explicitly mention :

    the gun contact is not chernarussian. It is never stated that he is chernarussian in our lore anywhere so I don’t know why you got that idea. He is (was) Italian. Therefore your advice on lore regarding a chernarussian contact does not apply, like I said. 

    In total, over 2/3 of your feedback was on things that literally was just not applicable and the rest were easy things that we actually did in response to your feedback.

     


  3. Just to update you all - working on a few things.  
     

    1. New name. It’s unique, I have it selected, should be finished changing everything in a second. 
     

    2. graphics - they’re being worked on. No eta

    Here are my suggestions:

    Delete everything and redo the whole group over again, rename it something not totally cliche and done before, get someone to do some graphics that aren't a total eyesore done on MS paint in 0.3 seconds, rethink your goals and backstory so they better fit the lore and dont fall into the "lol gun dealer" trope we've seen a 1000 times, write some goals that aren't just "make a stash", write an actual backstory, figure out of you're actually going to capitalise "The Saints" or leave it as "the saints",  get a better attitude towards criticism & drop the sarcasm, it isn't at all helping your case for approval or your reputation on the server as a whole ❤️

    the Ice Queen has spoken, thank you for your attendance.

    1. no

    2. No - I am not concerned with the group name being used twice in the last 5 years and not at all in the current lore

    3. Although I agree the graphics could be upgraded, I would rather focus on roleplaying than making a cp look pretty. I have some people who have offered to make graphics so if they do it I’ll revamp them 

    4. As far as I’ve seen - everything fits within the current lore. 
     

    5.  I personally have never done a gundealing group before , so I’m excited to try something new ! 
     

    6.  Goals will be updated once we play in game - starting goals are always a little bit generic but I think it’s pretty good for right now. 
     

    7. Backstory is being worked on but it’s not going to be much different than what already is there, just clarifications and a better format. 
     

    8. it’s capitalized but if it’s not in all places I’ll fix it

    9. I will have a better attitude towards criticism when it’s like the above ^ and not “graphics suck, looks generic” if you had posted something like the above feedback first instead of posting an unnecessary post that was more complaining than any sort of feedback. 
     

    Thanks for your actual feedback 


  5. Brayces feedback was brushed off with a lmfao because it was so innacurate it seemed she didnt even read the backstory, as silver said.

    I'm just going to be straight with y'all and say that this looks like a group for rights (to me).

    The group makes little to no sense to me, especially given how early we are into the new lore. An Italian gang, in Chernarus, dealing weapons even though major government forces like the Russian Army are still operating and enforcing law in the country? Little is explained in the 'lore' of the groups besides; "Italian gang wants to expand business, go to Chernarus, and start dealing guns.". @Brayces made a lot of valid points and left some good feedback regarding the group, but instead of taking the feedback and improving the group it seems to have simply been shrugged off and hit with a "lmfao".

    I suggest that instead of simply shrugging feedback that isn't the cookie cutter; "I love this group, good luck", you instead learn how to take it and use it to improve the group.

     

    TL:DR:
    Cut the attitude, take the feedback, and use it to improve the group.

    There is no attitude, I just struggle to see how i use the feedback on how to improve the group on ppl who either didn't read it or didn't understand it properly.

    My boy @TurkRP and @Apollo already brought this up but i dont really care. My question is why? This group with the exact same name was done already, why not just think of another name. Just doesn't look good on your end. 

     

     

    A group that I 

    A. Didn’t know about 

    and B. Got forced archived 

    not really concerned about it.

    It looks like this group is only made for kill rights.

    I see no original goals and no original story.

    So uhh, group idea and thread are pretty generic and meh IMO... why are they trapped in Chernarus? Why not leave? If they can smuggle things across the border then I'm sure they would be able to find a way to leave.

     

    Also:

    Why Chernarus? This is not explained at all. It's just "Bye Livonia, hello Chernarus." Given the location of Livonia, why not go to a nearby country like Germany or Poland?

     

    Seems like a quick thread to get rights tbh.

    I seriously do not understand either of your statements. If I wanted a group for quick rights (I.e. getting approved) I would have done some cookie cutter chernarussian group or Russian group that would

    A. Appease the sentiment of not playing a foreigner

    and

    B. Be able to get into quick gunfights with other nationalities because we hate those foreigners am I right. 
     

    Not a group for rights, it’s a group for roleplay.

    I mean you could RP as a chernarussian gang or mafia. Prolly better than some random Italians in chernarus tbh. Seen this a thousand times already. Never really see local gangs or criminal organizations. 

    Ok - so, an italian american crew is seen a thousand times (which i have personally never done before). But i cant say im not interested in being chernarussian because i have seen it over a million times and have done it before and find it boring.

    Great attitude. This will surely help with your acceptance 👍

    You don't have to join any existing groups. You can essentially create this exact group which you have here, but make it based on Russian or Chernarussian characters, at least Eastern European, and it will make 100% more sense than what it currently does.

    We are not restricting how people want to roleplay in a large effect. People can create any type of group (except official government run stuff without approval from the LM team), and have the group do whatever they like or have the goals they feel fit the group.

    The problem arises when people don't see that most of the groups created, be it a mob gang, a journalism group, sneaky edgy cult people, whatever it is, you can play a Russian/Chernarussian/Eastern European character and have it make sense. 

    Chernarus is a lousy region in Russia in the current lore, and would not be filled to the brim with foreign gangs or military units, which we have had and done on this server for eight years now. It's time people get out of their comfort zone and try something that makes sense within the lore and the country we're playing in. I don't care if you're shit at accents. Nobody cares. It's the effort that counts.

    As I’ve said , we are not roleplaying we had any sort of connections in chernarus that would effect the lore. 
     

    if it is against the lore to suggest that a minuscule number of foreigners were in country when the borders were sealed i would argue that makes little to no sense at all. 
     

    Also, it is not “something new” for any of us in the group. We have all played Eastern European / chernarussian characters before. It’s not that we can’t - I just don’t want to because that’s not the type of group I want to do. 
     

    All I’m saying is - if what we have created is so abnormally against the lore that we literally cannot do it - say so - and I’ll do something else. But as far as I’ve observed - it’s not - and what we’re doing is completely within the realm of reason to do both in the lore and within the rules.

    This is really really strongly seems like a group for rights. "Italian Mafia in Chernarus", many people before me have already commented that this is not really the best thing for the current lore.

    Your goals are also highly generic with nothing really special that makes you stand out from any other old Mafia group that we have seen over the years.

     

    Especially with this kind of attitude I think you may have to go back to the drawing board.

    If i was playing for rights i wouldnt make a CP at all, I'm comfortable enough staying dynamic.

    Although many (not staff) members have expressed their "Concern" for the precious lore - in my private conversations with Staff I have been told that we are perfectly fine until lore masters say we're not - which, they haven't. If you read, this gang had no pre existing footholds in chernarus which would concern the lore. The group was not here because they had some unknown connections to gangs here, they are simply foreigners who got stuck inside the country when the quarantine began. There are no issues here that would contradict the lore. I feel the majority of you are grasping at straws for issues but until someone who matters (Staff, Lore Masters) say that there is a problem lore wise (Which they haven't thus far) I will be continuing on the currently planned schedule with this group

    Thank you for the feedback Charlie!

    My isues are you don't really explain why the group decided to kick off making a gang all of a sudden while stuck in Chernarus.

    Who is this "army contact" you could get a "surplus of guns from"? Why is he selling them to a gang of foreigners and not local gangs that are Chernarussian? Ya know?

    How are you getting guns and drugs now? Where do they come from? Who's buying them ICly? Etc.

     

     

    These things all seem pretty clear to me in the CP but i'll clarify.

    1. the gang was pre existing, was not made in chernarus

    2. army contact was italian, not chernarussian

    3. same way everyone else is now, nobody yet because the group just started lmfao

    Not tryna be a dick or something but im pretty sure you need perms from @Apollo to make this group.

     

     

     

     

    entirely different group with the same name that i didn't know about that also got force archived i think im good xD

    On April 28th, 1945, 6 ½ hours after the execution of Benito Mussolini, 3 men had a drink in a bar in downtown Florence.

    Luca Romano - a former italian soldier from Genoa who had just returned home broke.
    Giuseppe Firmino - A brewer from Palermo with a stern face and a slightly problematic addiction to Gambling.

    And finally,
    Franceso De Luca - A lowlife from Mantua with a tendency for violent crime and history of armed robberies.

    The men, childhood friends reunited amidst the celebration of the end of Italy’s role in WWII, discussed the possibilities now that their fascist leader had been overthrown.

    What was discussed at that table that day was the idea that became one of the largest weapon distribution, bootlegging, and gambling networks Europe had ever seen. But at the time, however, that’s all it was. An Idea. Giuseppe had a slight bit of funds he could invest from his brewery, and Franceso said he knew a guy from the army who could get them surplus firearms for cheap - he apparently had been buying them himself for his armed robberies. These two paired with Luca’s military training and hardened sense of morality led to a perfect storm for a Criminal Enterprise.

    What was discussed at the table that day, is what became L'impero Tre Corone Reali.

    The Empire of the Three Royal Crowns.

    Luca Romano
    Giuseppe Firmino
    Francesco De Luca

    coollogo_com-2275571.png.9a3fb6f879c969284a811fe9c4a74435.png

    June 1945 - 

    First shipment of Surplus firearms is bought with an investment from Giuseppe Firmino

    Franceso De Luca begins selling firearms in Russia

    August 1964 - 

    The three original founders begin taking a backseat in the business, leaving their children to begin to manage the enterprise.

     

    1970 through 1980 - 

    The three original founders retired and left the business to their respective oldest sons.
     

    1987 - 

    L’impero‘s area of influence has spread throughout the entirety of Europe, Large portions of Russia, and Northeastern America.

    Between 1990-2000 - 

    The Third generation of the family was born.

    2011 - 

    Frank Firmino assumes leadership of his family branch after his father dies of a heart attack.

    2014 - 

    Stefano De Luca assumes control of the De Luca branch after Johnny De Luca is shot and killed in moscow.

    2015 -

    Luca Romano II becomes terminally ill of  colon cancer and leaves his business to his oldest son, Dominic Romano.

    Present Day -

     

    -2019- 

    After outbreaks of the Frenzied Flu worldwide, Business screeched to an all time low. You wouldn’t think it, but just as worldwide pandemics affect legal businesses, it affects the illegal ones too. When people are scared to death of catching a disease and dying, surprisingly their will to kill others is lowered, albeit briefly, sales on illegal firearms from L'impero was at an all time low. 

    -2020-

    January 1st 2020 - 

    Frank Firmino celebrates what appeared to be the end of the virus’s presence in Russia alongside his family. He and Dominic Romano make plans to revamp business and begin dealings once more - primarily focusing on expanding business in Russia.

    February 2020 - 

    The large majority of L'impero high command travels to Livonia for a leisure excursion. 

    April 2020-

    Worried by a new wave of disease, they cut their Livonia trip short, and travel to Chernarus just before the borders are locked and quarantine ensues.

    May 2020 - 

    Now stranded in a quarantined Chernarus, Dominic Romano, Frank Firmino, and Stefano De Luca begin to do what most businesses had to do in these times. They went online. They begin to run their business remotely through Chernarus to the rest of the world. Reports of the virus being seen worldwide once more are relayed through their communication channels. Unwavered, the three push their associates to continue business as usual, assuring them that things would go back to the way things were, just like they did after the 1st and 2nd wave.

    It would not.
    The virus got worse than it ever had, and the world - and L'impero - began to fear that things would never be the same.

    June -
    With Chaos ensuing in Chernarus, L'impero began to lose contact with their outside sources. Business as they knew it began to collapse, and the families failed to find a smuggling route out of the country.

    They were trapped.

    In most people’s minds - this is it. The end of the fucking world. 

    Game over. 

    But in a businessman’s mind, one begins to consider the possibilities. Stranded in a country with no contact to the outside world, the business could be reformed like never before. These people were going to want guns. And the Saints began to think that they would be the ones to provide them. 

    There was work to do.

    I am... curious if this group intends to still be active? Seems a lot of people on the roster, including the group lead @AidanVC have gone inactive shortly after posting the group? It's kinda key that you guys stay active and influencing people in game and spread your wings for us to gauge if this is a group we wish to approve for rights.

    As a side note, the add-on of the "Our Purpose" really gives more clarity to what niche this group occupies. I can see a clear goal for this group and hope that some more specific goals will pop-up based on what happens in game, especially ones with a time scale on it so we can measure if this group is going to be successful.

    With that said above, all the best and good luck!

    Yeah I’ve been inactive so nobody else has been on, had some irl stuff doing on but I’m back now 


  14. I have added an "Our Purpose" section to the page which explains a lot of what i had in my mind and not on the CP for the group. This should better explain our group and our goals - aswell as the roleplay we hope to accomplish. Thank you for your feedback and please continue with it if there is anything else you feel i should change!

    Thanks guys!

    In @AidanVC's defence, the groups just gone up, it's probably his first group page, cut the guy some slack too with some of the more brunt comments. I am sure with all the feedback they are getting they will be fleshing out their goals and what not, its what you need mostly is an outside view.

    Also @AidanVC I would probably encourage just you responding to feedback, more importantly negative feedback than that person getting responces from 3 members of the group. It looks better for you as a group.

    Ironically enough it’s actually not I’ve had approved groups in the past and never had issues like this yet I did the group page the exact same 🤷‍♂️
