Then why do you go on a rp server at all?? Because here you don’t have to actually get challenged to get kills? Find a Koth server where most of you are not banned for hacking, if you can, an go kill eachother there.
Yes Arma is old and will probably never go back to the days of being popular. That doesn’t mean we should unban all of the worst players we have ever had and turn the server into a dumping ground of toxic kids who doesn’t know how to keep their mouth shut just because they get killed in a video game.
You guys claim people who RP leave the server after a month, but roleplayer gets over run by frag hungry kids as soon as you step foot out of the greenzone, they are not given the chance to RP as most of you guy complaining in this thread literally have an RP lever of «Hands up or die» and never improve from that.
With all of that being said, you do need some sort of combat in Arma. It is a combat based game after all. However you need to find a middle ground between the combat and the RP, and there’s when it gets tricky. Tbh I think Reborn has quite a lot to offer combat wise, however they do have to get used to offer combat in the first place.
Having one massive gang instead of small ones fighting each other might be one of the issues. My suggestion would be a cap on gangs. Yes most of you will cry over that as you will have to split into smaller groups and actually have a challenge in a firefight compared to jumping your whole gang into several ifrits and over run the other gangs with pure numbers instead of skill.
And surely you recruited these people into the gang because they are good in combat situations? Split up and fight eachother and get the combat you so desperatly want.
