-Chaz West POV-
So @RiZ & @Im50cal stroll up to this base we see at the top of a hill. We get there, I walk around asking if anyone is home in which we get no response initially. So we boost Hutch inside & then Tony. Once inside @RiZ ends up seeing someone so we know people are home, I say i'll go talk to them. So I go talking to them, & I ask them if they are the 'radio people' @ImJimmy & I met a while ago. They proceed to say no, and then something along the lines of "this is LDFs place" or "LDF hang out here". So that sparks my interest as I haven't heard of them ICly other than on time above Toplin when some folks said they'd be coming to town soon. Anyways I proceed to ask if they have a spark plug as my lovely friend @Blisna crashed our car. They say they have one but ask what do I have to offer. I then tell them lets meet out front, so I can go inform @RiZ & @Im50cal that they are LDF as they are inside LDF's locked base. In which gives them the OOC knowledge of approved group, which changes how things are. As in official VS dynamic group rights. Now yes we now know they were either impersonating LDF or just im not sure why they'd say its LDF's base without saying, "but we ourselves are not LDF". Anyways, so I start to banter with these boys, in which one gets a little upset with me at first. Then later somewhat chills out and we have some more banter, when eventually a pretty stern, "if you pull out that speaker I will kill you" comes out of one of their mouths. Now I wasn't sure if I was yelling the whole time so my boys could hear, so I raised my VOIP to yelling and go, "so if i pull out my speaker you will kill me?!" to inform my lads in the bushes that they have rights to blast these boys. Anyways, they get killed.. I shoot the one who initiated on me. But only him.
Now onto the HelpDesk conversation we had...
I ask @Duke if he can get these lads in there to talk to @Im50cal & I because we believe its always best to at least talk to the OP to get their POV.
Before any conversation happens, a clearly upset @Storm says, "eh there wont be much to talk about". As in "i dont care what they've got to say im reporting"
So I start to explain why we assumed they were LDF, as based off their words it was the correct assumption anyone else would have had. As @Laski himself agrees with that statement. & @Storm cuts me off over and over again saying he doesn't give a f*ck about what I am saying, kinda rude but oh well. Anyways as the conversation goes on the OOC distaste for us comes out, in which I am told, "you probably haven't been around very long" & then proceeds to say things about me being on Final Warning.. Further showing the OOC drive for this. @Duke said he recorded the conversation so I'd ask that staff take a look at that when discussing the report, lovely staff member @Duke had his own words to say after the fact, but was still honest & constructive in saying that there's a good chance @Im50cal could get hit for ruleplay.
When discussing his initiation, they claim it is not valid. Now from the rules, they state a valid initiation is a "demand & consequence". Demand "if you pull out the speaker/radio" -consequence " i will kill you". Now my character can joke around, but if someone I just met tell me they're going to kill me for something.. Well I don't take that lightly, and neither does my brother in crime @Im50cal. So he can claim, "i was joking" but that's not on us. It's on the OP to understand what an initiation is, & what not to say if he doesn't want to get killed for his words. It is very rule play imo to initiate, get killed, & then proceed to say, "well I was just joking".
Anyways, as I said: I only shot the man who said he'd kill me. It is NOT on me to take things as a joke, especially when he said it in a different tone than the rest of his banter.
Also to quote the man: he says one thing, but his own video shows another. Whether or not it changes anything, i'd just like to make sure the facts are straight.
i am so happy this group is around, been tired of very generic accents these last few months.
they really speak their language which is so damn refreshing, on top of that they textRP it so that its not just gibberish for the rest of us.
i really hope to see this group become a genuine power on the server, & stay for a good bit.
also gg on the scrap today lads, was fun
Here to leave some feedback
My boys & I really enjoyed the role play from @poopslayerHP tonight! Love the character arc that started after I met y'all the first time on my new character. Keep it up, and hope to see you more & more in game!
yes, of course it COULD be a good addition, BUT... will it be? naw
people will build mega bases to hoard more gear and hide behind. i am one who's lived in bases, even in one with 40 foot cement walls . but at this point, im over bases. it is so ridiculously boring talking to someone who you can't see who's looking at you in 3rd person crouching behind a wall..
Regardless though, this would add tiny little doors and such which would just lead to an endless tunnel that you have to hacksaw through, you can build roofs which would throw my parkour career out the window, and much much more.
the ONLY way i see this working is with a LOT of restrictions, and rules pertaining to the mod. but that puts more work on the busy & lovely staff team which isn't really needed.
been saying this for a while, we need base raiding tools & we need to limit the amount of gates per base. make it harder to find tools to compensate, would also make raids a LOT more entertaining than holding left click for 2 hours.
So I was born in east LA to a caring mother & hard working father. We never had much growing up, but I was blessed to have a father that didn't dip out around birth. My father didn't want me to be anything like him really, at least same career path, but I looked up to him so much & I wanted to be just like him. We lived with my Aunt & her kids, & my father provided for all of us. I was getting into fights at an early age, anyone that gave me a look or anything got the smoke as we'd say. Fast forward a couple years when I started highschool, soundcloud became a thing & my boys n' I started making music. Hustling tree on the side, and using some of our money for studio time. When I was 17 I dropped out of school to pursue my dreams of going on tour with my brothas. We has gained 80k followers on social medias as our little rap group. We managed to actually book a few small venues of around 60-100 people in about 7 different locations.
We started off with 2 shows in CA, 1 in Dallas, 2 in Florida, 1 in Detroit, & we actually had one over seas. It was this place called Livonia, we had a small community out here & this was the most general location that they could all gather around. When we got there, the first night was amazing. I ended up taking this Norwegian broad back to our hotel room for the night. The next night we were mid show, & some of our songs have gun shot noises in the background so nobody really thought things were going on outside. UNTIL, one of those infected came barging through the door and grabbed one of our fans neck & straight up dug its teeth into her. We all managed to dip & get back to our room. It was a few hours later & my boy charlie opened up the door to check around to see if the coast was clear.. Little did we know we'd all get SCREWED a few seconds later. A crowd of them came screaming & running towards us, so we dipped. I got out of the room last and I had to hide underneath a table until they all ran past.. I couldn't find them after all of this.
Start of hell..
After I lost my boys, I went LA survival mode.
(will add more as I get in game)
The man joined in on the hunt to kill me, I watched the whole time. You guys seem to forget @ImMason & @ImChips were "helping" you guys in Sitnik look for Johnyy & I. He participated, and I initiated on everyone at the compound, he was there. I'm not sure what you are trying to prove here?
You went on the goose hunt for me... Purple fedora is what you were wearing. You fell for the trap that @ImMason & @ImChips set up on you. When you saw me behind the small rock wall they shot with you at me to make i seem like they were with you still, until I killed you when you guys checked the rock wall to see if I was still there. Are you trying to say you were not involved??
Also, this is a situation that happened well after what is being reported. We were only called in due to being in hit logs pretty sure. If you feel you were invalidly killed feel free to reach out to me or make your own report, unless staff wants to handle this here which is cool too.
No, that’s why I made this poll. & that I believe there should be a minimum length required for videos so we can stay consistent. I should have added 1 minute to the poll to be honest. If it’s not a certain length, then it shouldn’t be considered as it was probably edited down which like you said, is never allowed here on dayzrp.
So by saying this, my boy @ImS8n could have been dishonest and said I only started recording right before and stopped right after the kill and he would have been fine? I mean he showed that it was edited BEFORE the report, so in no way did he cut the video short to hide anything. You see how tricky this can get? I can go ahead and meta super hard, but trim my video and say I only started recording here and stopped here & id be fine. His video showed the entirety of the situation, he initiates, pauses, the guy turns towards him weapon aimed down BUT he re raises it showing non compliance so the man is gunned down, and shown in @ImS8n’s video you can clearly hear a command & consequence which is rare in the days of “hands hands hands!!” . & yet because he had trimmed it previously, his video wasn’t even considered.
If my boys know i’m in church, someone pushes me and I call it out. 5 seconds later I say, “i’m dead”, then my boys know someone is in church.
