Oliver came to Chernarus as an investment banker for the Kleier und Herold agency.
His official reason for entry is to look for worthwhile companies for an investment.
But his real job is for the BND (German Secret Service) to collect information about the troop strength of the Russian Army and possible dangers for the European Union.
After the borders were closed, he is now stuck there without a possibility of return and without contact with his office or his local contact man.
He will try to keep his camouflage under all circumstances and only do something in extreme emergencies that endangers it.
He is trained in various interception and interrogation techniques and on various weapons.
He is also familiar with various survival techniques so that he could survive independently in the wild.
The thing is that the sword is perhaps the best melee weapon, but IC does not suit every char.
In addition, you can kill zombies with one hit, but unfortunately also they can. So, in my opinion, caution and avoiding the zombies is the best option.
Guys, all of this should be a factual discussion and not a playground for injured souls.
It's a fact that the "normal" characters are trying to live in safety and at the moment it's better if they hide.
Once a safe hotspot has established itself, several will go there and then the wolves will find sheep again. But look outside the box and let the settlements a little air. If they are attacked every day, neither the IC nor the OOC are interested in doing it.
Well, I think the basic problem is if people want to do realistic RP or not. It should be clarified what you want to have here on the server. I have no problem with PVP, but then you should also be aware of the consequences. No one who get shot can quickly run to another city, he has to go slow and even take some breaks. Likewise, it is extremely unrealistic to walk from one side of the map to another within a few minutes. I know that everyone is here because they want to have fun, but if you consistently do RP, you're always in your character as soon as you log in.
The question is, what RP background does the capture have? Usually you want something from the hostage. Information or otherwise. If you kill him then you have nothing. And if his friends make an open attack on you, that's stupid. Sometimes it seems to me that hostages are taken just to provoke that. So you can then do PVP.
I understand that you want action, but RP has little to do with it and does not encourage it. Just my opinion
