If your a long time player. Your aware how IG has changed over the time. I as a long time player can state like 30 different era's and how there use to be huge RP and drama which impacted the server and what not. BUT This is about combat. Weapons. Blah blah so on. Most people agree. Combat and events are actually garbage now days, because of kill hungry, unthoughtful people. And to make it even better. Because people act like this. IT MAKES NORMAL PEOPLE ACT THE SAME. All out of pure rage. I mean even I myself act like this. Why? Cause if they wont listen to someone whos CL4 and will just rush? Whats the point in trying. What's the real problem? - You aren't scared - No real punishment - You won't listen - You aren't acting imperial. How do we fix this? - Scare them straight - Punishment doesn't work you can just DC. - @Tinky is fixing this point - Actually create a form of rule book or PDF. Which would include actions, scenarios and orders which must be followed. (ill expand on this down below) So what i mean: You aren't scared: Enemy ECs mean nothing. Lets be honest. No one feels any fear. "Owe look its a EC with 1k HP who does 25 dmg " "What do we do?" "Ey... rush?" "Yea! Lets do it!" This is basically the thought process i quite honestly watched 2 6th army have before they ran in and jumped around a EC for 5 minutes then running off. So how do you make a Rebel "Scare". Well the main reason from my own experience i'm scared of fighting specific regiments is because they are able to easily punish you for poor mistakes. I feel the server ever since the weak weapons nerf has made combat drag on for way too long. Looking at any good combat game. The less Bullets shot. The better. Without beating around the bush what i'm trying to say is to increase Rebel weapon damage. Don't make them insane. Don't make it instant kill. Don't make it stupid. A good gun for a rebel is a 25 mag, 65 dmg, decent accuracy / spread. This is strong so it can punish you if you rush, but with spread so if your using cover correctly the bullets will hit around you, stops rebels from across map snipping but allows them to hold Close ground to keep empire at distance very well but is ok at Mid range. To do this with one weapon. Is stupid. Rebels should have at least 4 main weapons 2 Rifles, a pistol and a sniper. These guns are already on the server (CAN'T THINK OF NAME). These guns i have all used as a EC. They are beyond trash. Shooting a gun with 20 bullets and 20 dmg is like getting a $2 water gun which can't even pump correctly and then fighting a fire ant hill when your toes are nailed to the ground. Event character weapons need to be scary, they need to punish idiot players for mistakes, and they should be over power rather then underpowered. If we have a event. And all 6 ECs have a rotary cannon just because it can shoot the fastest, requires no aim, does decent damage. Is TRASH. Another thing EMs need to add to the scare factor is some new models for Events. I have seen the same 6 dam aliens and 2 Rebel modes being the forest and the snow shovel over and over again. They need something new. If its a colour change, a new helmet something new. No punishment: This is a Gmod Server. Punishment for doing the wrong action? Not gonna work on anyone who isn't CL4+. "Owe noooo my internet is crashing *Disconnect*" Its a game. No one really cares about punishment. Instead of trying to punish troopers the reward system is far better. HOWEVER. That system still has major errors. I have seen trooper hunt ECs in attempts of a award. And i have also seen players who pull of crazy shit but get nothing. This whole system kind of needs a review. Punishment just dont work Reward is better but will lead to greed (That's the stage we are at) You won't listen: I have high hopes IHC will attempt to fix this. I hope Tinky is able to fix this. But at most you will see 2-3 IHC who are alive. They have Nova who are there to help them. But they kinda disappear? Shock will put you in a Brig for 5 minutes which is dumb. This ruins people's experience and honestly ruins immersion. Re-education is way funner, you actually have some kind of RP and human experience and not only that it can lead to some really fun banter. There should be a system where on field punishments can be handed out. If this means on field execution, COs getting Blue cuffs in order to restrain and stop a trooper from being able to compete or something. There is no punishment if a 6th army SGT disobeys a SCT LTCOL. Why is there no punishment? Cause should you kill the 6th army "RDM", you call shock? They already walked into the area. You body block? "fAiL rP" *proceeds to shoot*. The fact there was a CO meeting saying that if you are shot! You can even shoot them back. Punishment needs to be able to come from anywhere. Where a Imperial Army. We have a agenda. We FORCE this onto people. You don't listen? *Bang* We are a imperial army but we have people who try to reason with enemies, we don't burn or storm villages to force our rule. We act like shitty cops. But you cant even enforce anything because you have nothing to do that with. A rule book over Crimes against War or something where we can look at and say "Hey, this town? Isn't worth it... Burn it." We need to be allowed to actually do some RP where we do act a little rude and criminal where we just go and kidnap kids. We are playing a Serious role player of a Army that blows up a planet. We are not regular troopers. Every regiment on the server but say 6 of them is some kind of special regiment (Which makes no sense) who is "elite" at something. Military reports to MILITARY ISB reports to ISB Navy is Navy All areas should in some way interact. But if a low rank needs to interact with another it needs to go up the chain of that branches command. Then come back down. There is no talking. Im basically say the server is kinda in a state where its getting worse and worse. RP is kinda dull and trash Combat / PVP is terrible Events are the same thing... ECs are not at all scary Weapons are dull all around for everyone (This may be a rant but the server at this stage just isn't a fun place and at this stage i'm only staying to talk to people) (Where is my IQA Iron sight?)
