I"m not sure how much further to elaborate, but wouldn't it fit in with the lore and make for some great RP? There are already all these "in game couples" so why not add another element to create a place where players gather, like a bar or a trading post? The question is, who is going to be the madam and the providers? Plus, this further develops RP around organized crime, like all the narco guerillas and the mobs and bandits that are already out there, but are missing a story arc besides just endless loot gathering
I agree one hundred percent. I've heard so many players say, "hey, let's wait until the middle of the night when no one is online and come to break into their base" This is not RP, this is metagaming in my opinion. Other servers have rules for this, like for example: only raid on the weekends. Why? B/c on the weekends, more people are able to be online. However, in this server, the way it is now, gameplay is basically this: Find loot or cars, bring them to your base, secure them/hide them best you can, then find everything was stolen while you were offline, and rinse and repeat. I hope this can change, b/c if the focus wouldn't be so much on stealing loot, or hoarding loot, it would allow for so much dynamic RP gameplay, with real story lines contributing to the overall lore.
I see, I was told different by other players that insisted logs show non impact shots. Well then I guess we should close the case, I have no issues with Lockheed or his group. Sorry for wasting your time, but like I said, other players told me different, that’s why I posted the report. Good to know for future.
I hope everyone clearly understands from my "Detailed Description of Events" that I'm NOT trying to accuse Lockheed of being the initial shooter that fired at us with no initiation. I have no idea who initially fired on us when we were standing around and talking with our own group. Bullets started whizzing and hitting the ground around us, which made us run for cover. After we started peeking cover, that's when we saw Lockheed standing across the road and pulled our guns on him asking him to put up his hands in case he was the shooter. And I guess his overwatch fired on me as a consequence of that action, which makes sense. However, I'd like to know who/why someone fired on us initially, when we were just standing around and talking with our own group, with no prior initiation. Do logs not show who was firing at us, with bullets impacting near our characters... like on the ground near our vicinity?
Server and location: DayzRP server, location is the town of "Bor"
Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): approx: 2020-10-17 2340
Your in game name: My in game name is John Connor
Names of allies involved: @Jacob Vayne @Evin Foster
Name of suspect/s: I don't know, I never saw who shot at me (us)
Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): Vehicles were not directly involved, but this happened near our parked vehicles, a UAZ and Kamaz were parked in the street.
Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): I didn't have recording turned on. My mistake.
Detailed description of the events: Myself and @Jacob Vayne and @Evin Foster were engaged in RP with someone we just met whose name was Nick. In the middle of our conversation at the center of town (by the well), we were approached by a subject that identified himself as "Lockheed"?? he said he was looking for someone named "Leo". We didn't know who that was and had a friendly conversation letting him know that and that we will keep a look out for "Leo". He said he will come back in a few hours to see if "Leo" is around town. We said our goodbyes, and went back to our conversation. A few minutes later... All of a sudden we came under sniper fire from an unknown location, none of us were hit at that time, but we could hear bullets hissing and snapping around us. Someone was obviously firing at us from a distance with no prior initiation or provocation of any kind, but luckily no one was hit as we ran for cover right away. As we were sitting in cover and looking around, the firing had stopped. @Jacob Vayne noticed the guy we met earlier ... who introduced himself as "Lockheed" appear across the street. Assuming that he was the shooter @Jacob Vayne initiated by drawing his gun and telling "Lockheed" to put his hands up. I came from out of cover and also drew my gun and told "Lockheed" to put his hands up. Lockheed complied and with his hands up, he said he wasn't the one shooting. I said, "that's fine, I believe you, but please keep your hands up while we secure the area and figure out as to who is shooting at us". He kept his hands up and all of a sudden the shooting starts again. I never saw the shooter but this time I got shot (wounded) by this unknown shooter that I did not see. I started bleeding and ran away into the bushes to bandage myself. I then ran for high ground and started looking for the shooter with my sniper rifle. I didn't see anyone. So After a while, everything was quiet and I came back down to the center of town, both Lockheed and @Jacob Vayne were there, and one of Lockheed's friends came out of nowhere as well, he had his gone drawn. We had a conversation, Lockheed and his friend insisted that it wasn't their party that was doing the shooting and they were in town simply looking for Leo. I said I believe you guys and lets all just go our separate ways. Which we did. At that point. I went back to my house in town and went to sleep. I'm not sure if Lockheed is related to the incident or was just there at the same time the unknown shooter started taking pot shots at us... but I'd like to find out why we came under fire with no prior initiation or provocation, while we were just standing around and talking within our group. Thank you.

Why the verdict is not fair: The verdict was fair, however it was not me making those statements in Discord. I'm embarassed to say that my little brother got on my computer while Discord was open and started talking trash to all these different people b/c he's an immature teenager. I would never be disrespectful to anyone like that as I've never had this issue before. My sincere apologies. Please lift my Discord ban as it will never happen again.
Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: Totally my fault for leaving my Discord open, and my little brother jumpin on just to troll people.
What would you like to achieve with this appeal: Lift the DayzRP Discord ban.
What could you have done better?: Make sure to always lock my computer when I walk away from it. (I though it was going to be just a minute, that's why I didn't lock it, but ended up getting distracted and took a while, so my brother jumped on my Discord and wreaked havoc).
My name is John Connor, I am 40 years old. Originally, I am from the United States of America. I spent almost 20 years in the US Marines. In 2024, upon my discharge from the military, I started working as a private military contractor for United Security (USEC). After a few short assignments in the Congo and South America, I got my first major assignment as PMC Team Leader in Russian Crimea the political scandals and the armed conflict that escalated shortly after. Soon I found myself fighting a proxy war between multiple corporations. After ending that contract, I moved west and took on random jobs in Eastern Europe. I recently made my way to Cheranus prior to break out of the disaster.
