    Balance Bases and Update Rules

    I agree that there needs to be some kind of balance with the actual bases, people spend a shit load of time building them and they can create RP hubs. People who build bases must feel so dejected and just unmotivated to play when their shit is constantly getting messed with for no real reason, especially if people are intentionally waiting for low pop hours before doing anything. I would just like to add though, that any balance/protection needs to be balanced in a way that doesn't encourage or protect gear whores hoarders. If I go into your base and see you have 12 M4's, 20 SKS's, 5 FAL's and 10 AKM's then chances are you don't want that protection for your walls, you want it for your precious's (I know @Mugin and his group are not like this and am not including them in this statement, but some people are like this and this needs to be acknowledged). Then we need to look at those who gear hoard that use low pop hours to build up their stock of guns at their base, thereby reducing any real risk of being robbed on the way between bases and military loot spawn locations. I will be the first to admit though, I don't know how we can implement a "good balance" in terms of camp protection right now.
  2. You do realise that RP is quite subjective, and what you think may or may not be fun, isn't always going to be what others think is "fun". Hostile characters are needed or things get stagnant and to be honest what you are describing with just randomly coming in with a "stereo" can be quite disruptive to others RP and can often be met with people being rude and/or hostile with you. This is coming off as another "im gonna bitch about peoples roleplay because MY roleplay is just so above everyone else and they should all learn to be as great as me" thread, which in my opinion is completely pointless and won't achieve anything at all. There is nothing really constructive about your post. Since you appear to have so much to contribute, may I suggest writing an RP guide for people to share your wisdom?

    Item Durability and Duct tape Exploit

    yeah it isn't exactly "game breaking" and the only advantage i can see is that you dont need to waste an hour looking for one or more of the repair tools you may need. People here like to look a certain way for their character and with the way things are with stuff getting ruined extremely fast it should be ok to use.

    I know most like to kill people but...

    Im not saying you are salty, I am just listing the typical responses for threads like these, people get really defensive when they think you are calling out their "style" and others genuinely want to help, its just hard because it is such a subjective subject and without some kind of video to go off, it's quite difficult to give an honest and informed opinion on what you have experienced. If you keep getting killed by people, something is seriously wrong (and it may not necessarily be on your end, but without anything to go on, can't really comment). I think we can all agree that "drop all your shit and STFU while I go through your gear or I will kill you" hostile RP has no place on the server though.

    I know most like to kill people but...

    Threads like these pop up every now and then and they are rarely productive. Im going to quickly summarize some of the responses you can expect (other than the ones going, "hell yeah i hate being robbed, all bandits are just filthy pvpers who cant roleplay"): There are hostage guides, try read one or twwo and see if that helps with points below. Getting robbed all the time? Are you walking around with an automatic weapon and a massive backpack? If so you have higly increased your chances of being robbed, so make yourself less of a target. The "top end" weapons are hard to find so just having one makes you a target. Are you talking shit to people or trying to "act tough" IC with no backup? If so it probably won't end well. Are you as a hostage trying to progress the RP or are you just sitting there pissed cause you are losing gear? RP is a two way street, if you think the hostile party isn't putting much effort ino the RP, then why don't you try and lead the RP somewhere, just not in the "I'm gonna kill you all cause im a supersoldier" sense. There are things you can do despite not being in the "dominant" position. You shouldn't be getting shot for talkign back once or twice, but If you are constantly shit talking the hostile party then expect a bullet or 30. Use what happens to you IG to afffect your character and their behaviour, become more untrusting/cautious etc. Try striking some kind of deal with the bandits (although admittedly some can't be reasoned with). If worst comes to worst, throw up a report, and make sure to have some video evidence. Try talking to the group talking you by DM with their leader or leavign some constructive feedback on their group thread if they have one. Not all bandits on the server are co-operating, there are times that it seems like 2 or 3 groups may be co-operating but it isn't always the case. People can always band together, you can always try and lead the charge or talk to like minded people IG. I agree though that more "hero" groups are needed from what i have seen lately.

    Damned 92.1

    yes, i think i recognise that voice, you should know who this is, im still around, close enough to get this message at least.
  7. Had this happen to me a couple of times last week due to lag, the only way to not die is to quickly log out and wait a bit, but if your connection is bad it will keep happening.
  8. The way the rule is now seems a bit broken if a complying hostgage has to wait their 30 mins. It only makes sense for a person/group who have commited a hostile act as the rule is there to allow retaliation and to exercise their "Defence Rights", or for a non-complying person/group as they have given the other group "Attackers Rights". As I understand it, the purpose of the combat log rule has always been to ensure that someone who had the rights to kill under the rules, had a guaranteed portion of the allowable time in which they could find their target still online. A fully complying hostage gives no rights which would allow another person to kill them (not going to touch consenting hostgaes or "executions" here), so why should they then have to remain online? It should just be break LOS and log if you were a complying hostage (assuming you have not at any stage given the hostile party "Attackers Rights" or "Defenders Rights")
  9. These types of threads pop up every once in a while and usually end up with a clear division with people going "hell yeah the hostile RP sucks they only want gear" on one end of the spectrum, people going "they must be talking about us so we better get super defensive" on the other extreme, and some good reasoned arguments in between which can sometimes get drowned out. You are entitled to your opinion, and in some respects I agree with you from what I have seen in the last month, however, as a suggestion, be the change, don't just sit there and demand it without any suggestions on how this could be fixed. What I mean by this is do something more productive than start a rant that (from what I have seen in the past) will probably turn into a low-key flame war between some people. Here are some suggestions on some things that could prove more productive: write a guide - I had issues with what I saw from hostile RPers and hostages alike so I had written two guides here and here a while back to maybe help people who were new to hostile RP and also for those who didn't know what to do when getting taken hostage (although I need to update them and will get on that soon), maybe you have some better ideas of your own that would help people. leave some feedback (if its too negative try PM it to a group- leader) - make it constructive though and perhaps let them know what you disliked, liked and how maybe they could improve. Admittedly some people can't take constructive criticism or any criticism at all though and think that they are just amazing, which could in some cases also include the person giving the initial feedback. As others have said report it if necessary. I personally prefer to do this only as a last resort but some people need a light tap on the head with the mighty swedes ban hammer (not a perma smack) to get them to realise what they are doing is not as amazing as they think it is and they need to up their game. Ask yourself/the person complaining to you, if there was anything better that they could have done as a hostage to elicit more RP from their captors. This doesn't always work but there are ways to force them to RP with you in a way that isn't deemed NVFL. RP is always a 2 way street, although if someone is taken for an hour, the captors better be giving some solid RP for that hour, firefight or not there are things that can be done/said by the captors. I do note though that from what was described, the whole keeping them while a firefight was ongoing might have been to ensure they didn't get mis-ID'd and killed accidently. Have a think on how you think hostile RP could be improved and start a thread which possibly offers solutions with suggestions and/or tips on how Hostile RPers could possibly make hostile RP better, with people able to put their own ideas in. It might not necessarily get read by those who it would most benefit but at least it's something.

    Make Perma deaths optional (Read)

    In practice this would be a terrible idea that would get abused and used as a weapon of sorts by some to mess with people whom they have OOC issues with and would just lead to a cycle of OOC hate and revenge. This community would need a kidney transplant to deal with the increase in salt levels that this would potentially create.

    New meds

    So I noticed a bunch of new meds are IG at the moment, do these have any actual practical use yet?

    Avoiding RP

    As has been said it depends on the circumstances. There is a big difference in perceived intent/threat if a group happens to be casually jogging in your direction vs a group with weapons out that is running in the distance, sees you and then immediately does a 90 degree turn and makes a sprinting beeline right at you. Some will also just avoid large groups as IC it makes sense given that a larger group is generally more likely to use their numbers to rob or strongarm you. Although if they are within VOIP range or very close, they should always stop imo. your group obviously needs to put more meat shields in front of their leader! But yeah that's some bullshit. At least they werent running away screaming, "what's that, I can't hear you" as I have seen happen before.

    Head shots aren't actually broken?

    Does it really matter anyway from an RP perspective? I mean you should know from experience that chances are that you and everyone else at the execution are just gonna run into them the next day for some semi to fully awkward RP. I would be curious to see if the use of a shotgun at close range would solve the damage/hitpoint problem.
  14. the option is there in the keybinds options right after the zoom optics out keybind. It is just in a strange place and would probably make more sense if it was with the gestures keybinds.

    So.. can we ice sick people now?

    I can see this being used to bait an initiation, but at the same time wouldn't a potential work around be something like: Sick person: *Cough, splutter,sneeze* (as they move closer) Person A: stay the fuck away from me, I don't want whatever the hell you have, (possibly said multiple times) Sick person: continues to get closer and/or run after Person A Person A: "I don't want to hurt you, keep your distance and we wont have any issue but if you keep getting closer I will shoot you" To me it seems like if they keep running at you after having been told to stay away multiple times then it is baiting, especially if you get dropped the moment you technically initiate, but at the same time it looks like it would be rule play if they or their friends actually shoot you after you are forced to drop an initiation as you clearly have no intention of actually causing them any harm and simply want them to stop following you/give you a wide berth. We should probably be more worried about the unseen actions of the infected as it seems like this thing spreads like cholera used to (e.g. leaving water bottles they have partially drunk from lying around for unsuspecting victims). I think shooting people right off the bat is only going to take away from numerous RP situations that this might encourage, and it would essentially be giving people a license to kos the sick which would more than likely get abused.
