    We actually never really did anything for Italy. I say it's a mixed bag in terms of deterioration.

    Lore poll

    Yes but Rolle has made up his mind that he can be LM for all 4 servers and still somehow be effectual and interesting. Until tools are available, LMs given some form of power, and the community picks up there is no point. The Lore doesnt really need changing, it's not a great lore but it ain't bad either. It was written with what most people wanted in mind. What matters most is what we do with it. I might no longer be an LM but it is good to see people who care.

    Lore poll

    Great post but what you said here is not completely correct. When me, Chief, and Joules sat down to write the Lore on that late May afternoon in 2017 we didn't do a timeline, we didn't draw out a detailed plan of what we wanted or anything thing like that. We immediately established ground zero, what occurred there, who it was perpetrated by, and the result, going all the way back to the original infection of the first CDF soldier and also what caused him to be infected. Hint he wasn't bitten. He had a name, and all the events following his infection, including the response by the state, and the arrival of the Russians is all documented. This past winter me and Taryn wrote an entire doc that was written to be a report by an FSB officer who was present. This doc was going to be partially uncovered in a Lore event but Rolle removed LM's so that sort of went out the window. Granted I do understand that some of this stuff was never published and hence very few know about it, but a TON of stuff was uncovered by the UN and other parties who worked with the LMs on ground zero RP and such. I have never been a believer of just releasing stuff to the general public, working for it is always better than just handing it out. My point is only that the infection Lore background (in terms of history and location), AND how the virus came to be a thing, has been written down or fleshed out. Specifically the original bits virus goes back thousands of years in one form or variant or another. So yeah that was a thing. On a side note, bear in mind people generally don't give much of a fuck about Lore details, or things like what I discussed below. We tossed out ton of fucking clues, hints, and in many cases even straight up told people what was going on only to have next to no interest or follow up. So I would focus on bigger events and battles and such. Getting people to care is the hard part. But I absolutely agree that having tools could make things amazing on the server. I know you and me have had some LONG ASS talks about what we could do, especially because admins and LMs would work in tangent. We had two principal ways I planned to take the Lore once we had tools. One was that we were going to turn Chernarus and Russia (and the factions occupying the outlying regions) in to a sort of Game of Thrones style environment. So wars, backstabbing, etc, etc. The other was going to be that the surrounding factions and settlements were basically going to be slowly degraded into feudal-style setting. We could have easily combined these two. I'd be down to return provided I could actually work with admins to do these events and have a tad more trust and freedom.

    Mass-unban and a separate whitelist for Mod.

    Whatever Para. Either way it makes staff look pretty shit and makes the person on the receiving end look like a victim, so then all people say is "oh hey, he got banned for a +1". We can definitely argue whether or not they were banned for that or because they went over 30. *shrugs*
  9. Major

    Mass-unban and a separate whitelist for Mod.

    The one in question was on final but banning somebody for saying +1 is absurd.
  10. Major

    Mass-unban and a separate whitelist for Mod.

    Yeah especially considering people have gotten banned for posting stuff like +1 and such. On a separate note I know a lot of people who have been permed a while don't exactly want to return in the first place, and if this took place there would have to be enough to do and things would have to be set up properly.

    Re-instate the LoreMasters

    ^ I disagree with James. I would have voted NO but was too quick to see what everybody else voted. Leave it be, Loremasters going back to Tomeran have left or befallen a similar fate. I would have stayed as LM until I would have been entirely and totally prevented from IRL stuff from continuing or the community told me I was a piece of shit and I could fuck off. Leave the Loremaster team in the dust and just move on. Within a couple months this whole thing will be forgotten anyway. For whatever my word is worth here anymore, just close this thread because it isn't gonna come to anything.

    Well I have just been informed that the Loremaster position has been abolished. It has been an interesting run, not really ended how I wanted it to but it is what it is. I was planning on coming back to staff this next weekend to start to write events for .63 but it looks like that is out the window. Thanks for having us guys, we never got the guidance from where we needed it most, but I made some great friends in my time here who I will go on to do more stuff with. It was pretty shit how things ended, and to even have to reach out for an answer as to whether I was even still gonna be LM after James got booted. I was offered a position as a moderator for my 1+ year of service as LM but I turned it down as I don't much care for being around on that side of things. I know how the system operates and figured I would eventually get rolled over too. This community is a shell of what it used to be and I don't recognize it as what it was not that long ago. I honestly don't foresee me playing or doing anything with this place anytime soon. Please don't hesitate to contact me. Major, signing out for the last time.

    Re-instate the LoreMasters

    Yeah, and we did this type of thing with several people. At the end of the day most of the time people would not take us up on it or would ignore us outright. Julia is right. At the end of the day the base SA game is a prettier Arma 2 DayZ mode with improved survival mechanics, downgraded gunplay, combined with a running simulator with none of the basebuilding, vehicle stability or other features that made the core gameplay of Arma DayZ so good, nevermind the ceaseless issues with that too. The Loremasters reached out for help with things the community wanted, often to get no response, or be given lots of attention and promises of help but to only have a handful of loyal folks show up who eventually quit because they were discouraged. The Lore doesn't matter as much as what you can put IG, we knew and understood this since months. SO THEREFORE: we made the Lore Faction Team, a group of folks who would play one of 4 different Lore Factions In-game, to conduct all the normal affairs player groups would but as Lore factions to make them come off the page if you will. We played OREL, COBR, CDF, BPR, Russian forces, militants of various varieties, and event characters. It was a lot of fun and when we did it it was extremely successful and everybody involved enjoyed it. At one point we got up to 15 folks total. What's my point? Nobody seems to have noticed. So maybe I didn't make enough noise (as I was planning on putting up a big thread for .63) or people just didn't care. Either way, it sucks, and as an LM you feel like a young parent trying to keep toddlers entertained. Let's be honest, the sum total of rp and conflict outside of any greater Lore makes everything have no meaning or general feel of apathy. I'm sorry. The sum total of what the playerbase has produced that has been next to nothing in terms of a compelling storyline or keeping interest. You have to have something larger. Sure there are prominent examples but this is the norm. RCON messages are about as effective as Lore writing. They establish an idea and a premise more directly than Lore updates, which we stopped doing because nobody read them as has been said by Rolle. So we did the IG bit. Events on the other hand are always either PvP, OOC, or generally complete clusterfucks. This game is utter shit for events. It doesn't fundamentally make anything better. You can't make a bad cake taste good by putting whipped cream on it and dressing it up. We were underappreciated where it mattered, not supported, were given wildly disproportionate expectations of achievement in contrast with what was actually possible. If this were Arma and daily events were possible, it would have been a thing. The state of rp is the worse it had ever been in living memory. Since I have been Loremaster, with the brief exception of the 2 months after wipe, it has been nothing but a dominant faction or group being the main "bad guy" and the rest of everybody else just being there. It is always the big bad dude versus the underdog. It used to be we would have 5 groups active who could hold their own in PvP. Now we have one active group of people. It's a boring repeat of hub after hub, with occasional efforts to revive things. I don't know what anybody expects out of this place or the game now. Really. .63 ain't gonna fix shit unless basebuilding or modding come earlier than planned. Sorry to say. Even a big wave of newbies wears off, the game (core product) needs to change. If nothing changes you'll find better rp on a Arma 3 LiF server. Nobody ever got to see the full potential of what we had planned and what we were going to do. With a couple of the previous Loremasters combined in a good team we would have blown you guys away. It's a shame it'll never come to that, not to stroke my own ego anymore than it already gets stroked. Me and a whole lot of other people were holding out for something better, and waiting for the right opportunity to make things great again.

    Re-instate the LoreMasters

    Just please let it die and be laid to rest with the dignity it deserves. @JoffreyRP is right. We were neutered from the start, little to no guidance (thanks for all those who did) and had a fucking trash game to work with. If it was Arma it would be a different story. At this point having Loremasters reinstated is the equivalent of restarting a wicked popular classic rock band without any original members. Sort of like Queen without Freddy, in so much as the Lore just isn't what it was in mod or before. Just let dead and beat horses lie. I think everybody here has enough sense to make up their own mind about the state of things and the direction of this place.

    1 year since the outbreak

    Lore won't matter till we have the ability to mod and do stuff beyond write it down, tools and all that will help too. Another Lore wipe would be a pain and then within a month we would be right back where we started with the same map, people, and cycle of monotony. Oh well, what do I know? When I get back in a week or so we are gonna work on getting some bigger projects done and write up a bunch of events for when .63 hits.
