My POV: Situation was tense. My character was bugging out and I logged and re-logged immediately. I ran from the point in which I respawned and saw three characters who were standing in front of me. I heard some people had came to the island and these antagonist groups had been consistently attacking us for the past few days so immediately, tensions were high. When I saw the 3 figures, I tried to hide and back peddle. However, one of them saw me and ran up to me. I raised my weapon and shouted "stay back please! I am not initiating, stay back!!" Then Boom ..... shot by someone from I don't know where. A sniper probably.
@NozzyRP he is no friend of mine mate. Don't know the guy. Listen, I think your point is a bit vague. I was on about an obvious intentional racial incident of abuse. Was horrendous RP. Your on about interpretation. Two completely different things. Anyways, the amount of backlash I've recieved from writing this thread has me regretting ever opening my mouth. Hate mail sent privately. I have enjoyed this server and have contributed my own hard earned money to in game purchases as I was committed to it. Anyways, think its all about whats for you. Not for me. And thats cool. Was only wanting to hear other peoples viewpoints. Like I said, I am a new member. All the veterans backlashing me because this thread has apparently been debated about several times. How was I to know? Anyways, it's had no effect so play away. Was just creating discussion.
I wonder about the type of people who decide to a play a character that invovles any form of racism tbh. My character in game was a teacher before the apocalyptic era (reflects my profession IRL) probably why I dont tolerate picking on minority groups. Yes it is a game, but people use all media platforms as a way of racially abusing people because if they did it in real life, we all know they wouldnt be as brave. So why are we providing them with a platform to do so? Anyways, accept other points made about murder, killing, theft, robbing etc so maybe I'm flogging a dead horse. Appreciate everyone's opinion and response to my topic. I was genuinely interested to hear other peoples viewpoints. Especially from veteran players about how it enhances stories etc. However, my opinion still remains Im afriad. No offense intended. Just wanted to generate discussion on the topic. Im sure theyre are people form minority groups who play this server and was wondering how they felt? Maybe a rule to mention about the excessive use of racism in game could be created or it it already there?
Honestly, its just my view and if ye dont agree then so be it. We are all adults at the end of the day. However, saying there is a difference between OCC and ICC racism makes NO sense. This is 2019, not 1960's. Dont think any of you will understand how it feels unless your subjected to it or unless it applies to you (the racism that is). Telling somone to not be offended because its roleplay is an ignorant response tbh. Just don't see why anyone needs to act in that manner to play a video game. Anyways ✌ peace out folks.
I wasn't calling Anarchy out, just laying down the fact it happend that time with an Anarchy member. Anarchy make this server in my eyes. Fear, chase etc. I have experienced this several times only once involving Anarchy. I dont have recording equipment .... yet ....but when I do, if it does happen I will post it here. Anyways this is a discussion form. If its about people giving their viewpoint on the server, then I should be allowed express my viewpoint no?
I've heard this excuse before. It aint about being thick skinned, its about promoting racism. Racists hiding behind screens getting their kicks out of abusing people because of their ethnicity because if they did it in real life, they'd get punched out or put down. If we as a community allow it in here, then how are we any different? Why is it needed for RP? Do people think it makes RP situations better? Just wrong in my eyes mate.
Hello all. I've been playing this server for little over a month. I am new to RP and to DayZ .... kind of. However, I want to get people's thoughts on an in-game issue which I feel strongly about that I have encountered alot despite the fact I am a new community member. So, I have met a variety of people in game, most of who have engaged in some excellent RP and has made my experience on the server a positive one. I'm genuinely enjoying the experience but there's something that I believe is fundamentally wrong with the rules section. I was playing one night with my friend. We were being held up by members of Anarchy (the gang I love to hate and who have created an interesting story on the server). During a recent role play scenario, my friend was subjected to repetitive racial slurs. He was called a "black person"(we know the word) and someone sang "I'm an Alabama black person (we know the word) and I wanna be free!" down the headset numerous times because my friend's character was an African American. He is an African American in real life. I found it very hard to listen to and my friend became quite annoyed and to be honest, upset by it too.
To my surprise, when I went to report or persue this issue, I was informed that this kind of thing is allowed and not condemned on this server. I am sorry but .... THIS IS WRONG.
This server is used by people from all around the world and by people who love to game and like to relax and play video games. We all play to chill and escape real world bullshit. The fact that anyone who is different can be subjected to this is wrong (I don't care if this happens in real life or if it is considered RP banter, it shouldn't be condoned).
Why is it allowed? Why do people do it? And why do we accept it when it happens?
If this server is really about RP and for everyone, then it be should reflected in its rules.
Would love other peoples thoughts or opinions on this.
I've said all I have to say. However, since youve asked... if you truely want to know what I would of done? Yes, I would of pointed my gun at the player. But .... I would not of shot as my hands were down by my side, no gun in my hand, and you outnumbered me. You guys had all the advantage. It should of been clear that it was a bug because of how I spawned in and how I looked (stuck in the vehicle half in and half out in a standing position). My character in game is non violent. Check my profile. If your friends engaged in more than 11 seconds of RP, I would of got the chance to prove that.
I am as Calm as you like lol Just irritated by lies. I spawned in and was NOT sitting in any driver seat. I was active for 11 seconds before they shot me. Like I said and for a third time:
"when I logged in again I was stuck in a Zil with half my body standing on the driver seat and the other half poking out the top of the roof."
As I said "when I logged in again I was stuck in a Zil with half my body standing on the driver seat and the other half poking out the top of the roof." "All I did was move in one spot in a continuous circle. I was of no threat" I could not get my character to put his hands up. Nor did I have a gun in my hand. You had no reason to feel threatened or shoot. You didn't engage in any meaningful RP or try to speak with me as far as I could hear. As the log shows, the contact between me , you and your friends lasted 11 seconds if I am not mistaken? Pointless...... This is an RP server or is it?
Server and location: Chernarus Server and no idea as it was a teleportation bug from an immediate log in
Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 09/10/2019 18:49 / 18:50
Your in game name: IrishChris88, Chris88 (Kevin O'Shea is my in-game name)
Names of allies involved: no one
Name of suspect/s: no idea. Never heard them speak and didn't identify clothing
Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): Gerphelius zIL- 130
Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): NONE - No equipment to do so and besides, incident lasted 5 seconds from a spawn.
Detailed description of the events: I logged in right after my game crashed whilst playing with my friends. I was at Solnichniy. However, when I logged in again I was stuck in a Zil with half my body standing on the driver seat and the other half poking out the top of the roof. It was obvious I had spawned in a random location due to a bug.I saw 3 individuals circling me with guns pointed at me. I was confused as I did not recognise the area, people or what was going on. It lasted 5 seconds before they shot me. I was given no warning, I had no gun equipped in my hands and I never initiated or moved. All I did was move in one spot in a continuous circle. I was of no threat. They shot first and asked no questions or tried to engage in RP

*Kevin O Shea Releases the PTT*
My name is Kevin O' Shea. I am originally from Dublin Ireland. I was a secondary school teacher (English and P.E). I was on a cruise ship, The Costa Risacca, with my family on what was meant to be a 2-month holiday around the Black Sea. One night, a violent storm broke out while we were on board and caused the ship to strike a rock formation. The ship was sinking, and widespread panic broke out. During the panic that occurred, I somehow got separated from my wife and kids. Certain that they were on board a lifeboat, I had no choice but to abandon ship. Stranded at sea, a stranger came to my rescue. Jakob was his name. A rugged and dirty looking man who managed to pull me on board a lifeboat. Seeking shelter from the storm, we turned towards the direction of the coast. We sailed through the night and by the break of dawn, our vessel was washed up on the east coast of Chernarus, close to the city of Berezino. All survivors agreed that the best course of action was to seek assistance in the nearby settlement of Berezino. As we ran towards the city, what we saw was incomprehensible. Blood thirsty people running around, chasing, hunting and killing everything in their path like possessed animals. To avoid being savagely eaten and dismembered, I ran inland towards the woodland on the edge of the city. Through the narrow branches and dense forest, I saw what I thought was one of those demons running towards me. I ran, shaking and hid cowardly behind a pile of rocks. I glanced up over the rocks and to my dismay, who was it only Jakob! Yelling at the top of my lungs, I called out his name “Jakob! Jakob! It’s me, from the lifeboat!” We stare at each other with a sigh of relief thrilled to be in the company of a familiar face again. Desperate to find my family, I plead with Jakob to help me search the outskirts of Berezino ……………….
