Me personally, I am leaving for a mixture of reasons. Some of them people may find logical, and others people may find insane. To say that all of these people are just hoping onto the bandwagon of hate for staff and community would be unfair. One of the main reasons that are making my leave is that I feel like there is a lingering feeling of "no one dare speak a unpopular opinion" in the air. Another reason is that with the current state of 0.63 we use on the server things are simply boring. Tons of things like weapons, clothing, & animations are not in the game. You also can not identify people in game, everyone is just "survivor #". Because of this reports and logs have become a bit of a mess.
Those are a few of the reasons why I am leaving. I can not speak for all the others leaving and I am not even gunna try to.
Honestly, @Roland your not a bad community manager. Ya kept it going, no one can deny you that credit. I just felt like some bad decisions were made, and you did not have a lot of other options to work with.
Catch you on the flip side Rolle o7

All of you are awesome guys and gals. I would share a drink with you any time!
I would also like to actually thank Rolle for gifting me the sponsor rank.
For a lack of a better way to describe it, and to make it brief this place has turned into a raging dumpster fire. Do not get me wrong, it has been fun to sit back with a bottle of wine and watch the blaze burn. Alas though, I have ran out of wine and a dumpster fire is only entertaining for so long. During my year long ride in this community I have seen roaring highs and sorrowful lows. I have seen role play and story lines that have plucked at my heart strings. I have seen the emptiness that fallows when things go south.
This community seems to have turned into a place were the truth will not dare be spoken, and the masses listen to the worlds of the few saying "Everything is fine". God forbid you choose not to be another sheep to be led off to the slaughter. Heavens forbid one speaks there mind or gives a honest opinion in this community.
What was once a land filled with role play and good times, has now become a echoing abyss where only money and the privileged may speak their minds. Now we bring forth servers on different games to attract more people, but they sit empty. We moved to the broken and content lacking 0.63 in the pitiful hopes to stay reliant. We let banned community members back in for a nice little fee in the hopes that they will fill our servers and make the community seem alive once more.
Do not get me wrong I may be overly negative sounding, but I did have some serious fun in this place. Met some awesome people and had quite a few awesome times. I really do hope that this community raises up from its ashes like a phoenix. I am genuinely sadden to see the state that this community has fallen into.
I may return on the day when role play and honest hearts become important once more.
Until than though...
A toast to you boys a girls, and a toast to the community that got me into DayZ role play.
If I may, are you sure you have the language right? To my knowledge the two dominate languages in Chernarus are Russian and Czech. Are sure you have the right translation? The name you have does not translate over in either language. It just pops out as the same thing in English, as well as Russian and Czech. Even though the translator I used detected that the name was Russian.
In Russian the 502nd Reconnaissance Company translates to 502nd Разведывательная компания
In Czech the 502nd Reconnaissance Company translates to 502nd Průzkumná společnost
I am not trying to be overly nick-picky I am just trying to figure this out.
