  1. Thanks for the very large and explaining response Gibby. I have had multiple experiences of at one time 15 people, mostly CCs raiding my base and absolutely destroying me and my party simply because they have a weapon that is yes, glitchy but also incredibly unbalanced compared to the rest of the server's armoury. So I do agree with you that these weapons should be balanced, but I find that there is still a very large amount of players with CCs who commonly bunch up together, a fight with a CC is a very unlikely one to win, I think with CCs, the point of whoever right clicks first is better than whoever is a CC is absolutely going to win that fight unless they get caught by surprise or just totally suck ass, which most CCs don't. The server's economy is very varied, some poor, some very rich but I just feel that giving players any opportunity to even the playing field would be quite fair. Maybe it could cause trouble with the economy but you see, guns like the Dragunov are very expensive to new players and lets be honest, forgetting CCs the Dragunov is going to destroy any other gun bar-none except the AN-94 burst. I don't think that CCs themselves are very practical to keep the server going, especially when you can't get them anymore. I see the point that if they were enabled everyone would have them and it would be an OP gun spamming mess but I just feel that things should be fair, which right now aren't very fair at all when it comes to CC weapons. Like I've just been kidnapped right now by a CC, who took me into the PD and broke the rules ladalada but as soon as I free myself, even though I have a gun it is instant death. The point of having huge parties and raiding, it happens all the time, it happens a lot, and largely with CCs. i think that the idea of balancing the DB is a good idea, making it even with the other guns and I still stand strongly with the PD Raid idea, lets be honest, people don't raid PD for the rewards, they suck, I think there should be a better reward for it, it would give a good incentive. Your improvements I agree with and should be integrated. Thanks for the informative response and I hope some of my ideas are added into the server, I only want the best for Xeno, that's why I'm writing all of this, Smoke
  2. Basically proves my point exactly lmao
  3. Well, My opinion on this situation is that the DB is a very overpowered weapon, a one shot on even a Juggernaut if you have a good shot. I think that the damage of the DB destroys RP for other players, seeing players running around as different media based characters with a weapon that literally cannot be beaten in a gunfight unless you're very good at gunfighting or they don't have a shot on you is pretty crazy. The purpose of the Juggernaut class is defeated as these megaweapons with a huge damage ratio can just destroy juggernauts with one shot, which is not realistic while the Spas 12 is a complete Peashooter on a Juggernaut, CCs are not accessible for anybody that didn't chip in early, you could say it's pay to win but it isn't because people can't even pay anymore. I think it's well deserved that the devoted people to the server get a reward but a DB or whatever overpowered CC weapons they use just prevent there from being a decent balance on the server across gunfights and give new players a complete disadvantage and a motivation not to play the server because they don't feel welcomed to succeed in gunfights. The gun that comes closest to the DB is the Dragunov and not even that matches in power. Players should be given a chance to even out these odds at least, this could be by adding DBs or other CC weapons to the rewards given by PD raids or by adding a VIP gun dealer and I still stand by that point. It's an unfair right, it would add new weapon opportunities, old time players have sorta gotten used to the normal weapons so it would be good to add a new opportunity. I realise that it is hard to do this as CCs would be upset but I think it would genuinely benefit the server, give the CCs something else to treasure, but I feel that a cosmetic reward is much more fair, making things available to everyone is what I think should be a priority on Xeno. Even in these comments you can see that the community desires this change, focusing on the demands of the many is much better than just listening to the few, and I realise it is difficult, on Earl's point, even if it is clicking the fastest, at least it isn't confirming your death before the fight has even started because they can whip out their DBs and kill you instantly, what you are talking about Earl, is already an issue, I feel that lower CC weapons could be sold by the VIP dealer and DBs could be won via a PD raid.
  4. Yeah, I agree on that one, lower class weapons would suit better, I find the DB quite glitchy. I think winning a DB from a PD raid could be an alright idea
  5. Hello, Me and a couple of people have been thinking of a way of balancing the advantage in Custom Class weapons on the server. For quite a long time now there has been considerable conflict between how overpowered the weapons that CCs have are, but the issue being that CCs paid early for that advantage and balancing it would make their early payment feel like it had no worth. I feel that a VIP Gun Dealer would be a good way to balance out the playing field. This would allow donators to become this rank and sell higher damage and previously custom class guns to all people on the server, meaning it's a fair system, this is an idea that I did not come up with but I do agree with, just a little suggestion, Thanks.
  6. a1) What is your in-game (RP) name? LargeSmoke a2) Provide a link to your Steam profile. https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198103709166/home a3) What is your Discord Tag? (ie: SomeUser#1234) Haggis #5385 a4) What timezone are you located in? GMT a5) How many in-game warns do you have? 4 active, 13 total a6) Have you ever been banned? If so, explain why? Yes, a very long time ago, my most recent being false and being removed, any other bans have been because of surpassing the warn limit, I have tried not to be warned and haven't in a good while. a7) Do you have any prior staffing experience? If so, where? Nah, I don't my friend was recently staff though Please answer these questions with your honest opinion. b1) Why do you want to volunteer for XenoRP? I want to volunteer for Xeno RP because there is a lot of minge, RDM etc that happens at night for American mods that can't really deal with it, sometimes the rush of things stops justice from being served and it can become hard for mods to deal with. What I want to do is help the community be satisfied and feel that there is a fair outcome, I've been a heavy user of this server for around a year or two and know my grips around all the rules, I've had a few bad times and arguments with mods but I have attempted to resolve each and have successfully on many occasions. I just think I'd be awake when other mods aren't and I'd quite enjoy the job. I don't like injustice and it feels good to serve it to be honest with you. That's why I've been trying to not get warned and haven't for a few weeks now, primarily walking around and cooping myself up in megabasing recruiting new members b2) If you were to get accepted, what do you think would make you a good moderator? I would certainly try and I think I would yes, friends have told me that I would be a good mod and have asked me if I have ever been a mod because of my grasp of the rules, as I have mentioned I would want to deliver fair justice and pay attention to the rules most importantly. In times where there are no mods on due to timezone differences I feel I would make a great addition to the staff team Please provide descriptive answers for the following questions: c1) Define RDM/RDA and describe how players who perform those actions should be punished. RDM stands for Random DeathMatch, this is when a player isn't killed with any sort of valid RP reason, making it random. A valid RP reason for killing somebody would be if they were raiding your base and you defended it by killing an attacker. The punishment for RDM is commonly a warn but if repeated could either be repeated RDM or Mass RDM which is bannable. RDA is Random Arrest, this is when somebody is arrested without any valid RP reason. A valid reason for arresting somebody would be if they were breaking the laws put in place by the Mayor, so for example having a gun out in public. RDM comes in some varieties such as Revenge RDM which I have explained in my NLR section. c2) Explain "NLR" and provide examples of instances in which it is violated. NLR stands for New Life Rule, it is the rule that declares that in your new life after you have died that you must not come back to the spot that you died for two minutes, although this differentiates in some situations, such as a PD raid or raid where you would have to wait for the raid to end before you come back to that place, this is to prevent the server from becoming an absolute deathmatch, killing somebody while NLRing would be counted as revenge RDM. So, coming back to kill a raider is NLR, going back to where you died is NLR c3) Define "metagame" and provide examples of its occurrence. Metagaming is when somebody takes advantage of something that the character you are playing as wouldn't be able to figure out, for example, hearing printers through walls and then warranting them for having illegal printers would be metagaming, rather than seeing them with your eyes. Checking deaths in chat to do certain things such as arrests and killings for party members is also metagaming. Another example of metagaming would be to hold your voice chat button down and seeing who is near to tell who is in a base you are raiding, your character couldn't possibly know that. Please explain how you would handle each of these situations: d1) You see a higher up is abusing their powers to the highest severity, how do you react? I would put in a staff report on the forums showing evidence and reasons listing their name and steamID d2) During a sit, you see someone outside of the sit Mass RDMing. How do you handle the situation? I could notify the person that I am in a sit with of it, but won't leave the sit and LTAP. I will wait calmly and then make another ticket. If I was myself the moderator in control of the sit I would pause the sit, jail him and possibly ban them right then or wait until my sit is over, they can't break rules while jailed. d3) Only two other players are online, and they're building in the streets. Put in a player report on the forums with clear evidence of what they did, let that be picture or video and explain the event listing what they did wrong. In the position of being a moderator I would take them to sits and warn them both verbally first, then give them a proper warn if they continue Thanks for changing your mind Jeremy, I appreciate that you want to go with the crowd
  7. You shot me before you warned me, you didn't have a right to shoot me
  8. so who will deal with the report then?
