Well reading this thread and most of the other threads has left me with a simple conclusion, most of the members in this community are incapable of having proper discussion in a forum post without blaming someone else for there problems. Taki is dead, everyone keeps saying that, I also keep hearing about what the community says they want and honestly its pretty ridiculous how much you all have been babied into thinking that whenever you want something new or a rule or a mechanic change that the proper way to go about it is to boycott something until its changed. Go try that with any other game and see how many fucks they give.
You guys have owners and admins that actually read the fourms that openly offer for you to make the changes you want yourself and you still complain. Now to address another thing, everyone here paid BOHEMIA INTERACTIVE to play this game, none of you can sit here and tell me that you personally paid to play on the server. Nobody can tell me that taki 1 or 2 development time was funded, some of you may have donated of your own free will, but none of you were forced to this means the following:
1. It is not SMT's "DUTY" to do anything. They volunteer there time and there money for you so act like it
2. You have been given permission to fix the so called "Problems" with the server, stop asking someone else to do it.
3. You all are the most ungrateful whining kids I have ever had the displeasure of meeting on the internet, NEWSFLASH ITS WHY THE SERVER DIED!!!
Now to address point 3, because i know most of you are preparing your keyboards for a very angry response, just stop and think if your attention span will allow it. What little RP taki had has been in decline since we first started the server YEARS ago. However you all have taken it to an unplayable extreme, mostly everyone here is about the kills, now your excuse is "Well its just takistan RP" right? Wrong, you guys have made any and all RP somehow turn into people dying, now that might be fun for you all, but not everyone wants fighting all the time which you all failed to realize long ago. Now when people tried to bring this to the communities attention the general response was to tell people that if the "Kill em' all" mentality wasn't there play-style then they should go play something else. Problem was majority of the players that were loyal were good role players that just wanted more gun-play than a strict lakeside server would allow, but none of them wanted an all out war taki which is pretty much that state of the meta role play on this server.
What you have is the result of the player's being so cancerous they destroyed there own server and now they sit around wondering why. Its clear as day why, normal people dont want to play with you lot. Its cancerous and its an all around bad time, no amount of development can fix the attitude of the players, and no amount of rules can stop you all from acting like absolute shit human beings both in game and out of game( And yes Im referring to the DDOS, the clickbait, soundboards, and following a certain someone around uni, the leaking of photos, ect.). If you want your precious server back then act like it, stop whining grow the hell up and act like a decent human being and then just maby someone will want to play with you. But it starts with the players not the devs, they can add shit to make people come back but nobody wants to stay with your abhorrent behavior.
