  1. Addition/Change to the Initiation/BadRP rules.

    I understand, but when talking to a moderator I was told that because I raised my gun and made a "demand" (telling the other player to stay there he is), it was then an initiation, so the other player was allowed to attack me. From my understanding, that's the loophole within the rules. If it's not allowed, then I guess it's something the Moderator should've said instead of saying that nothing wrong was done. In fact, I was told I could've been killed legitimately at that point.

    No one even wants you here, Limpan. Welcome back, my dude.
  4. With the recent Lore Wipe, it definitely seems that the focus on Role-Playing has somewhat increased now that, in theory, no one is a grumpy hardened post-apocalyptic survivor who doesn't mind the mere sight of massacres and death. Which means that there will be a lot of scared and paranoid characters walking around, myself included. However, such behavior is very dangerous, and I'll explain why. From what I've gathered in the rules and according to Staff members I've spoken to, this situation is valid: And I know this is valid because very similar things have happened to me and I have heard the same from other players, and nothing could be done about it. I do believe this is a very simple case of BadRP/Rule-Play because the "gun-raising" thing is considered an initiation. This behavior only helps perpetuate a constant PVP mindset, where every hostile action should always be avenged and should never contribute to RP. Maybe after this exchange, Player 2 could very well act in a hostile way but keep the RP alive instead of ending the whole interaction with a cheap robbery just because he could. So, that's my idea. Disallow this sort of behavior that breaks RP for the sake of gear and PVP. A counterargument is that this is somewhat realistic, and you'd expect to see this in post-apocalyptic movies or scenarios. But keep this in mind: This is a Role-Playing server where every player needs to have fun. The reason why they kill anyone they want in The Walking Dead is because these secondary characters are not the point of view of the show. It wouldn't be as fun if Rick was just killed by some random dude 2 episodes into the show. And if your fun (PVP) ends the fun for another player (unless warranted, like in a firefight), it shouldn't be allowed. TL;DR Breaking an RP interaction for the sake of PVP shouldn't be allowed and should be punished as BadRP. In this case, maybe making initiation rules a bit stricter.
  5. RP when the infection is fresh

    I believe this is a loop hole in the rules as people are technically in their own right to do this, but I do think this should fall under Rule-Playing or even BadRP. But, then again, when is it ever about the Role-Play to some people?
  6. Insta kill zombie?

    Yeah, let's hope we hit beta by the end of the decade. Anyway, thanks. I'm just a bit salty right now. You can close it.
  7. Insta kill zombie?

    This has happened twice now, and I wanted to know a few things. The first time I got it on video, I was next to the Kabanino water well, I had crouch walked the whole way around the town and checked multiple times to know if I wasn't getting chased by any zombies. I tab out to check something on Teamspeak and, literally 10 seconds later I tab back in to a zombie appearing next to me, hitting me once and killing me instantly. The second time happened a few minutes ago where I now tabbed out for 2 seconds (again, while hiding in a corner without attracting any attention) to close a poke someone had sent me (and keep in mind, I play on windowed mode so tabbing in takes no time), now I did not hear or see any zombies, just the black "you are dead" screen. I am clueless but I'm assuming the same thing happened again. But I am confused because in that time NO ZOMBIE could've ran to me and hit me enough times to kill me, and I have been hit before multiple times before even passing out. Both times I had full blood, well fed and hydrated, with no shock damage apart from a couple of zombie hits several minutes prior. My question is: Is this a known glitch and what can I do about it? Because I just lost hours of progress.
  8. RP when the infection is fresh

    Unfortunately it seems that people even after the lore wipe are roleplaying as if this were the most normal thing in the world, which upsets me. My character is a 17 year old boy who just lost his parents and it's quite awkward when I roleplay being scared and paranoid while everyone is speaking normally. Not only that, but I've done the whole "gun pointing until sure that I'm safe" thing and it only got me knocked unconscious and my shit taken after lowering my guard because that kind of counts as an initiation. I will roleplay with these things in mind, I just wish people will start doing the same.
  9. Lmao @ people not even using images that show a face for their characters, only edgy post apocalyptic gear.

  10. Michael Mikhailov

    Son of Russian parents, Michael never fully connected to his family's culture or traditions. He doesn't speak the language, knowing only what little he remembers from his early childhood. Always a smooth talker and a charmer, Michael got everything he ever wanted or needed, though kept a humble mindset and was often considered the kindest of the family, which consisted of, according to Michael himself, "old, bitter sacks of regret." Apart from his parents, the only family member he enjoyed talking to and interacting with was his grandmother. A citizen of Chernarus, she died on the 29th of April. Michael had turned 17 just a few days prior. Due to this, him and his family flew to Chernarus for her funeral. This was unusual behavior from Michael as he always expressed his desire to never leave the US. What he didn't know is that he probably would never return. After the placement of Martial Law by the Chernarussian State, Michael and his family were unable to leave the country, ultimately getting stuck bureaucratic limbo for two months due to the fears of terror attacks and violence. That all changed, however, after the outbreak. If asked, Michael will not remember what happened. He tells a different story every time. All that is certain is that he is alone now, and his dreams are deafening with the screams of those he failed to protect.
  11. Ban Amnesty

    That is not far from paying to play on this server, which if not against some terms of service or some Bohemia rule, is at the very least scummy. As I've seen, a lot of people agree that there should be an amnesty with many restrictions until the user can prove themselves worthy of being free of warning points or last warnings. And I agree with that. Many people should be given second chances as I have already been given one as well. And let them get permed again if they're reported for bad behavior/rule breaks. Easy. Just because people are given a second chance, doesn't mean they're all going to abuse it.
  12. What We Can Do

    I've been on both sides of this same story in multiple communities. This sort of "Community Revolution" will only force the website to go downhill from here. Even more than it already has. This will die unless the staff change their ways. This is a blow you can't recover fully from, because those 30-ish people are going to drag a lot of people with them. I'm not an active member in this community, but I've been lurking since 2013. And in the mean time I was part of other communities, some as Staff and some as a Member. I've already gone out with a bang, and I've already saw people going out with a bang, having to delete their posts because they were full of porn gifs. Again, this a blow you can not recover fully from, but it can still work out. I don't know what you guys are going to do, but I'm probably not going to be here to see it as I'm done with RolePlaying, specially in DayZ. Best of luck, I guess.
  13. I hate 0.61...

    Yeah, that was clearly a case of KoS, the zombie did not at any moment try to make contact before rushing in and killing you with one hit. This is gross behavior and has no place in this community. I want this report to go Formal so we can get the logs and get this son of a bitch.
  14. Let's create a group together!

    I would love to see an evil group akin to the Saviors from The Walking Dead. But it's like jumping on a pole. You may get there, but it's really easy to lose balance and just fall to the other side. An openly evil group must, above all, consist of experienced/good role-players. It also must not fall into the generic "we are bandit group we take your stuff bye" category - which is fine if the group plays it out well, mind you. A Saviors type group with good role-players would make for an amazing experience, and I've see MANY groups with potential fall into that aforementioned category because they were made up of mediocre players who just joined a bandit group to be able to shoot people and take their stuff. Another concern I have for this specific idea comes from the realm of originality. Making a group based off of Nazis is alright, I've seen a few but they all fell quickly. If you want to make an evil group, make it your own idea. Hell, Negan rules his Saviors as he sees fit, he just gets an idea out of his ass and applies it, often to just entertain him. He doesn't have historical or scientific basis. tl;dr an evil group must have good role-players and must be original not to fall quickly. Anyway, I'd be happy to assist with this if necessary. I have experience with making art and banners for groups and I'm also experienced in writing backstories, call those my two biggest hobbies.
  15. .61 Current Issues and Information

    This update was clearly rushed out and they admitted to it, they didn't want to leave us with .60 for the rest of the year. I think it's worth it considering the map changes and the sound update. But God is it buggy.
