Charles here, I'm gonna quit Arma for a while, which means I will no longer remain admin. I may or may not be back at some point, we'll see if I get the Arma feeling back once again. But I hope you all will continue enjoying DoD as I have! //Charles
Had a hell of a good weekend with bikerfriends on a far away iceland, and hungover? yeah a bit, but not so much, so im coming online soon btw, placing 80 drunk ppl on a old whaleboat was not an bad idea at all as someone thought!
In case you haven't noticed. Jets + attack helis with radar were removed from server 2. this decision is not up for debate. There still might be a few helis at the trader still for sale; they will get removed upon discovery.
As the countdown indcator mentioned "Big Changes" were coming, well they are here; Early. I am saddened by the loss of Bastian, but he knows what's best for him and this certainly doesn't pay the bills, so I completely understand his decision. With that said, let me get into some of the changes coming to Servers 1/2.
Complete re-TOOL of the rules facilitating a more player friendly environment while also creating a more structured atmosphere for Admins. Some examples of rule re-working are as follow:
Base building rules will be completely re-worked.
Unecessary rules will be gotten rid of.
Admins will have more strict rules regarding player interaction, base raiding, player reporting process; WE WILL BE ADDRESSING THE FACT YOU GUYS PERCIEVE ADMINS ARE ABUSING THEIR POWERS, THEREFORE THESE CHANGES SHOULD FIX ALL THAT.
PLANES AND HELIS WITH LOCKONS AND RADAR WILL BE REMOVED FROM SERVER 1, WE WILL BE CONSIDERING WHETHER TO LIMIT THE TYPE OF LAUNCHERS AVAILABLE AS WELL.
PLAYER LOADOUTS WILL BE OFFERED. (TO BE DETERMINED, HOW THEY WILL BE OFFERED)
INCENTIVE WILL BE GIVEN FOR PLAYER DONATIONS (ALSO TO BE DETERMINED).
INCENTIVE WILL BE GIVEN FOR PLAYER BRINGING NEW PLAYERS TO THE SERVER.
These are just a few small examples of the many things we will be working on during our staff meeting (Saturday 08/19/17). Again, thank you for sticking with us through these changes, but we hope and think you guys will like the server 100x better and recommend to all your friends. BIG CHANGES ARE HERE :) :) :)
Short version: Im pulling off the admin team, and as owner of DoD1
Long version: I've choosen to pull off the admin team and as server owner of DoD1. Why? Because i've gotten to a point in life, where i simply don't got enough time to manage a server + enjoying my time playing. When you only got a few hours everyday, you just wanna sit down and relax.. And not only spend time helping players (no offense there). My new job got me quite busy, and i gonna focus more on that now. The server will be staying as it is, nothing is gonna change about that. Vistor is gonna be the new owner of DoD1, so make sure he take good care of my baby. You are more than welcome to text me if you see me inside sometime, but im not gonna be acting as a staff member anymore.
