The initial report was primarily about griefing, the destruction of the base. But as details have come out I am also seeing a possible violation for:
2.3 Be a good sport. Do not focus on PvP aspect of the game and attack everything that moves just because you can or are good at it. Remember that not many players will enjoy being constantly attacked, therefore you should not dominate other groups or players into submission to a point where they can no longer accomplish their regular role play or enjoy the game.
This is beyond IC reasons, you knew were were raided, and still proceeded to raid us even more, then leaving our belongings in the woods. That we found it is of no consequence. I believe being raided repeatedly in such a short time frame falls under 2.3 rule even if by different groups, if the second group is aware of the first attack. Knowing your target had already been raiding and causing more trouble in a short period of time is crippling for our role play and frustrating to the point of people considering leaving.
4.8 Griefing is act of damaging or destroying a player base, storage container, vehicles or their contents using OOC knowledge, ill intent or doing so without IC reasoning that is proportionate to the damage done.
4 walls were broken on the pub as well as locks cut off. Both were unnecessary. Entry could have been gained by cutting the locks OR breaking the walls.
ICly, there was no aggression between our groups. We broke the alliance for a nonaggression pact - or weapons pact, we just didn't have the numbers to support the alliance and keep our settlement safe as well. We agreed that there would be no hostilities with Novo on our part if you agreed the same. The discussion took place with Ben Hanson as Joel Miller was not available at the time. We were never informed of a rejection of these terms. So as far as we knew, everything was still fine between us, we just put a bit of distance.
The walls in question were up for less than a week, as well as Hesco barriers and sandbags that were removed. This was done even with a gaping hole in the back wall, as well as no locks on the front gate from he first raid on our base. Our back gate was stripped of the wire and left as a wall and a number of our walls were left as frames.
I find it unlikely that walls despawned in a number of days where as hesco barriers and sandbags take two weeks.
But I would like to address the excessive raiding as well, your group member knew we were just hit by another group and you still decided to come in and do more damage and take what was left. Seems to be more about getting gear than providing any sort of RP for our group.

Detailed description of the events:
When the 503 returned to Chernarus a week-ish ago, offline raids began to happen. Homefront is settled not far from Novo Village in the North, so inevitably we were hit a number of times. Three times in one day in fact, and two more the following day. In a decisions to try and recuperate, we decided to find a different location to store our supplies until we had time to strengthen our base.
When our citizens were evacuating the town a number of our lockers were found a short distance from Stary Yar abandoned in the woods still loaded with our belongings, They grabbed what they could and destroyed the lockers.
While things were hot, Homefront stayed clear of the North as we have a number of non-combatants in our group. Upon return yesterday I found a number of our walls have been stripped and there was much needless destruction on our base. That is the primary reason for the report. Raiding is one thing, destroying our structures is completely unnecessary. No one has reached out to us to see if we were still using the location ICly or OOCly. The raiding was pretty excessive as well, but we have no idea if it was the same groups or just a series of individuals. The base still has a number of tents, though we did not see the need to put locks on them merely to have them cut away again while we were not at the base.
Glad to be a part of this group. The RP with everyone in it and the interactions we've had with other groups have been spectacular so far.
Looking forward to meeting more of you out there in Chernarus! See you out there!
"I am perfectly fine with who I see in the mirror, I have spread no lies, I have hurt no one. In case you forgot... the other version of your story you fabricated is that your men turned on you because you wanted to settle with the people you claim to have been your friends are you hurting them now too, was that a lie too? You only fabricated the part about my fiance and I when you needed an excuse to harm us. You led the people to where we were hiding and watched as they hurt us..."
"Wynne and Jacob were in our past as far as we were concerned and had let them be until we were told of the lies they were fabricating and spreading. People should know the truth, and yours and those two's lies are so vast... The stories are getting mixed up, and as I said, people are seeing them now. So, be careful of which version of the lies you tell to what people. All I intended from my involvement of this transmission was that warning. That is all I intended to expose."
*the ptt clicks on and a soft, yet angered voice speaks up after a grunt of pain.*
"Take a good look in the mirror, and think about the lies you spread like a plague that get people hurt... then decide if you have any right to speak about morals..."
*a brief pause*
"Actually nevermind, you are so full of yourself and lost in your own little world of grandiose narcissism, you probably believe everything you say about people, as long as it makes you look good and like a victim... not as many people give a shit about as you think. And people are seeing through you lies and hate mongering now Wynne."
"And Valery was not crying to you, he apologized to the community you and Jacob left in shambles after your pathetic attempt to lead and after you tried to align us with the Umbra terrorists behind our backs. Look at where you are and who you are allied with now... and what you have done.... then tell me who's morals are skewed."

Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 2020-01-28, 19:30

Names of allies involved: None
Name of suspect/s: Ghost and friends / Blue arm band
Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): none

Detailed description of the events:
I was searching the base in Swarog, came across the group with blue armbands. One person identified himself as Ghost. The rp was friendly enough and we went on our way to search the grounds. Was attacked by two infected, Ghost I believe was trying to shoot one. I cleared the way, then was shot and killed. I was no where near the infected. I had a machete out as that is what I was using to kill infected.
Hana is my first character, a kind and gentle person who is desperately clinging to the idea of a simple life free from violence and trying to see the best in everyone. But it is being stomped all over and I am seeing her change little by little through her experiences.
In regards to style I enjoy a variety, campfire to roaming and meeting new people, when she is not hiding from the scary people of the apocalyptic world they live in.
I am relatively new, so I am not in favor of a wipe. I have enjoyed my character and really am not ready to end her story, and I know I am not in the majority but one thing I do love is hearing the past stories as I meet people. It makes the server feel more alive and evolving that the people I meet may not have been who they were a year ago. The harsh environment forces change and many of the people I have met play it very well.
I also believe as many have stated, that people will go back to doing what they do now, with different names.
Considering all that I have read I think that it is more the state of the current lore that needs to be addressed.
Perhaps instead of erasing the lore, it can be updated and put to a timeline with major events highlighted, maybe breath new life into what is current instead of starting over?
