  1. Having graduated law school at the age of 24, Tanner quickly became embedded within America's military industrial complex, working for Raytheon directly after receiving his diploma. Most of Tanner's work involved handling and overseeing the transfer and sale of weaponry and equipment to the various American Private Military Cooperation that operated across the globe. Ensuing the sales were conducted properly, and legally, often meant travelling directly to areas of conflict to ensure all items were safely transferred. As such, Tanner ensured he was capable of defending himself should the need arise. Sure enough, on the two occasions where Tanner did feel the need to draw his weapon whilst travelling in less hospitable parts of the world, his composure impressed even the PMC's accompanying him, having expected little from a skinny lawyer from New England. After working the job for roughly a year, Tanner found himself approached by Raven Shield Security, a cooperation he had yet to do business with. Having taken notice of his lack of aversion to potentially hostile situations, a quality one typically does not find in a lawyer, he was offered a more unique position within the group. Whilst keeping out of legal trouble was always a priority, having somebody operationally capable with the disposition of an attorney in negotiation and handling clients & targets was somewhat of a shortfall the group needed filled. Not particularly caring about the potential ethical and moral implications, Tanner found the offer intriguing, and accepted after some deliberation. Unfortunately for Tanner however, one of his first jobs saw him travelling to Chenarus with a detachment of Raven Shield members, a job which seems to never end.
  2. Dam, was fun the few times I had the chance to get in game with you guys. Thanks @Wong for the invite, we'll find that crowbar one day...
  3. I've been getting fine into the server for the past few days, but when I joined today, it gave me the following error below. If I launch the game without the DayZRP mod active, it works fine, so its tied to the mod somehow. I saw some had this problem before, but deleting the XML files from the DayZ folder in documents didn't work. Additionally tried the stock fixes of re-installing DayZ, verifying integrity of game cash, deleting and re-installing DayZRP mod, and using the mod repair function in the launcher, but nothing has yet to fix the issue.
  4. I expected nothing from maroon 5 and was still disappointed. But hey, least its literally never not fun being a patriots fan.
  5. While Sten was born in Estonia after its independence from the Soviet Union, it would take some time for the country to recover from the iron curtain. By the time Sten reached 20, his country still lagged significantly behind the affluence of the Western Europe. Growing up being taught of the Soviet oppression of Estonia, Sten found himself motivated to peruse a military career, not wanting to be put in the same position the generations before him had to endure. As Sten would soon realize however, Estonia at any time has only roughly 100 personnel stationed overseas, and as such, the prospects for any real action lay slim. After serving for four years, Sten left in favor of joining the French Foreign Legion, where he would be much more likely to actually be put in a meaningful position, or at least so he hoped…
  6. Usually its pretty easy to tell so long as there is enough evidence whether a rule break was an accident anybody could have made, such as a firefight rdm, or something that was obviously intentional, such as warnings for a forum post or a NLR break. In the case of an accident, I would hope the GM team wouldn't remove somebody on a final for something like that, so long as it didn't become habitual. Sure, people can theoretically change play-styles, but when there are several large hostile groups on the sever, it can be difficult to avoid fights. I've never received a ban for an in-game infraction, however I easily could have on several occasions if I wasn't lucky the person I killed was involved in a situation; so could anybody who participates in firefights on a semi-regular basis. While a final warning is a final warning, I do think the situation of players given amnesty is / should be slightly different. Under normal circumstances, a final is given to a community member who has broken several rules in quick succession, and likely will continue unless a stricter stance is taken. With amnesty players, there wasn't a line of rule breaks leading up to the warning. Rather, it was given as a result of coming back from a perma-ban. While obviously there had to have been previous infractions for the perma-ban to have been given, it's been some time since for many coming back. It would be much fairer for those coming back to at least have some wiggle room for accidental infractions, rather than an instant removal for something any of us could mistakenly do.
  7. Salavdi was born the son of an oil worker in Southern Takistan. His family had been avowedly apolitical for as long as Salavdi could remember, however that did not shield them from the conflict that would arise between the Royalists and Socialist forces within his country. Amidst the western invasion, Salavdi's father would be killed in an attack on the country's oil refineries by royalist forces, with his mother and sister killed when a stray artillery shell from the NATO invasion struck his home near the front line of fighting. Though the conflict would end in 2013, Western forces would occupy the country, serving as a constant reminder what the war had cost him, and who perpetrated the murder. Though the British were able to route former Takistani military insurgents, several armed groups began to form, as dissent grew among non-royalist sects of the population over the Western occupation. One of Salavdi's friends introduced him to one of these groups, which preached salafism and the return of Muslim rule to the country. Though Salavdi himself was not particularly radical or religious, he sought revenge for his family, and felt a sense of community among the group which he had lacked for some time. Salavdi would sparingly participate in attacks, favoring books over the sword so to speak, however he did not shy away from killing Western forces, hoping they would get the message and leave. After the rise of ISIS and the world's attention put towards counter-terrorism operations once again, NATO forces in-country began to focus heavily on subduing the group, fearing its Islamist narrative. By mid-2017, nearly all of Salavdi's friends had been arrested, killed, or fled. Still wanting to be among the living, Salavdi left for Chenarus, fleeing to South Zagoria to be as far from any NATO pursuit as possible. Working as a day laborer until he figured out his next move, the outbreak occurred soon after his arrival. Without much left for Salavdi in Takistan, he saw no particular reason to return, placing his bets on lasting in Chenarus.
  8. Don't forget the ones that purposely got themselves perma'd after being fed up with how they were being treated. I think part of the issue is that the community has always had sort of an ego about it: There was always a sentiment that if people didn't want to conform exactly to how some in the community (staff) wanted, that they could just leave, and not many shed a tear if they got banned over minor infractions that added up. The community could afford to act that way when it had 3 servers full at peak time every day, but when the player volume dropped, the sentiment didn't evolve. When some of the most active players kept being banned over silly reasons, the community was really asking for stagnation. At this point, doubt that having a ban wipe would do much. Most people I know at least have either moved on, or probably wouldn't want to come back anyways. Even I'm just checking in out of curiosity, kind of hard to find motivation when all you're friends were banned and told they're not wanted. Think the community's seeing the result of that behavior, which doesn't help when compounded by DayZ not having aged well. Community's always bounded back before, and I was always one of the first to defend its longevity.... but I'm not sure about this one. Before, there was always something around the corner to look to. When mod was dying, it was standalone. When Standalone could become dry, there was always a major update that would peak people's interest again. When things became a little stale after updates, the community brought in a few decently popular streamers / youtubers to recruit more members. I've been out of the loop for a while now, but it doesn't seem like there's anything in the future that will bring back the numbers. Considering how long DayZ's been out, I doubt this new update will have the same effect as previous ones when the game was just released . The meme might have come true.
  9. I mean, somebody needs to keep all those military grade weapons safe...
  10. How dare you defend the OP....shame.....
  11. These points were brought up many times, and ignored. Sure, posting dicks left and right doesn't exactly send a resounding message of change, but you have to analyze that as well. Why would so many previously respected community members, almost a third of which were ex staff, post things so extreme? After all, many of them banned people in the past for the exact same thing. People were so tired of the BS and being ignored, that they simply threw in the towel. Change not happening fast enough wasn't the issue; the issue was that there was not change at all. You say they can never help to change anything, yet if anything, them leaving had sparked one of the larger discussions I've seen. Nobody cared what they had to say when they complained through "mature" ways, so they took an alternative route. When pretty much the entire active staff team of years past says somethings wrong, there might be something wrong...
  12. I beg to differ. Your perception of the situation is rather black and white. Sure, they knew what their actions were, and expected to be banned. You fail to look beyond that, and examine the reasoning as to why they did what they did. Over 100 people don't ban themselves because everything is going great. They do it because of persistent issues. When you ignore a group of people's opinion, and frankly don't even bother to empathize with them, you're throwing them away. They were constantly told if they do not like how things are, then leave. I'm not sure how that's not throwing people away.
  13. People need to lighten the fuck up. Something like that isn't flaming, insulting, mean, or obscene. Some might find it in poor taste, but taste is subjective! There are plenty of things posted here that are NSFW that aren't considered rule-breaking. Just because somebody doesn't find something funny, doesn't mean it needs warning points. Half the time I feel staff has divulged into policing personalities over actually having a standard for warning.
  14. Considering how the current staff team has responded to situations and comported themselves, I seriously doubt that.
