If I still had time to play on the server(s), this alone would be a dealbreaker for me to not even bother getting on. Unless the well(s) are guarded 24/7, this provides no RP avenues whatsoever and is only a major annoyance for the player base. Want to wall a well because it's close to a building that you have loot in? Perfectly acceptable, that's your place and your well. Want to wall wells with a gate to control who has access to the clean water supply on the map? Perfectly acceptable if the wells have people who can actually provide roleplay and barter for said supply. Want to wall all the wells with only walls and no gate, and not have anyone there to actually roleplay and barter? I'm sorry but that's just being a dick.
People go there to avoid RP, but it's close to players spawn and only has one way in. I don't see how this makes any sense. People who want to avoid RP trek North and into the wilderness, not close to the coast in a place easy to reach.
Rose tinted glasses. I tell you, reinstall the game and mod, hop on a server. I give you about 30 mins before you realize that it wasn't the game that made you think "those were better times" and that the reason it seemed like a better game was actually the people you were playing the game with, and the state of the community at that time.
I’m so ... ugh ... since when is activity worth more than being inclusive and welcoming in the community? Boiled down to a copy pasted welcome message set to repeat like a Alexa bot... I bet each person feels oh so recognized by staff of the new RP community they joined specially when they see the same message posted over and over to several different people.
It takes no effort to read a OP and pick up on something they’ve mentioned or bring up something you think the new player may be interested in. If you cannot create something better than a mass copy pasted message just don’t bother replying at all.
Being pandered to is somehow more insulting than being ignored specially when the pandering is out of self interest and not even concerning you.
What you're describing sounds more like FPS lag than actual latency lag. I suggest maybe looking on the side of your system performance and hardware instead of internet connection. Lower your graphic settings and see if it helps for example.
Might want to rework or reword that, a placebo is an inert (fake) drug that is given, often use as control in medical studies. It has no therapeutic value whatsoever, and most importantly, placebos have nothing to do with diseases.
If there's few and I can take them one by one, a knife. If a place I'm looking to loot has 10+ of them around, I just get on top of a truck or something similar and use an SMG. I find that SMGs are optimal to clear infected, ammo is easy to find and the magazine capacity lets you clear many of them with well placed headshots without having to reload more than once.
I agree that this puts us all in a bad place, but then again I've been tortured for information I didn't have that my captors where 100% sure I had because they thought I was someone else or that I knew someone I didn't. So I'm really on the fence on this, I get that torture needs to bring a very real element of fear, but in the wrong hands many could get executed for the wrong reasons.
I agree. Recently I had an interaction with people at Green Mountain and a male who was standing there suddenly emoted *you see a child about 12 years of age* or something similar. My first thought was ok this is why he's acting so strange, my second one was well that emote should've come in way sooner because that's like vital information, and then lastly I thought he's by himself, acting shy and scared, how the fuck is he not dead yet? The situations just crumbled into nonsense to me when all the pieces were put together.
