  1. Appeal Accepted - Ban Reduced Me and another senior staff member have reviewed the incident with all parties. While RDM had occurred it didn't seem like an intentional attempt to Mass RDM. However, multiple instances of TK had occurred (provoked or not) which isn't tolerated on our server. We've decided to reduce the ban to 4 days as we believed that while 1 week seemed a bit harsh for what had actually occurred, RDM has still occurred.
  2. I'm not seeing the issue myself on the map. It's pretty bright. Anyway, as for the map itself, kinda like a bizarro jungle, ngl. Performance is alright I guess. 150-200 in a lot of areas, airport dips to 90-120. US base is maybe 120-150? Large asf skybox. Weird missing texture water in where Tali base normally is. See attached. Overall not a bad map, if kind bland due to it being basically yet another rehash of junglestorm. We currently have ww3, day jungle and night jungle. Not against it but imo it doesn't bring a lot more to the table compared to our current selection.
  3. It's nice to see some productive feedback about events. On your first point, if you have any maps you'd like to suggest feel free to forward them on to one of the staff team (preferrably an EM or the Head EM) and we can have a look to see if they're viable. I would like to point out that the team has looked into and suggested new maps so don't think we've overlooked/ignored the prospect of adding more map variety. Don't need to be a player to notice the reuse. Although on that point, depending on various factors we are limited to a certain selection of maps depending on whats happening at the time. 2nd point: We do and have attempted using different game modes from the usual KotH+3 point combo. Such examples include Hardpoint, FOB battle (I think that's what it's called), Rush and I think there was some Attack/Defence mode done a few months back. I do agree adding more variety to the rotation is a little overdue although some of these more advanced modes require more/all hands on deck and at times we've only had 2 maybe 3 staff actually running the event. 3rd/5th point: We do aim to make events enjoyable for both sides. Trust me, I've had my fair share of shit event experiences where it felt like only the opposite team was having any fun. Balancing is a fickle thing and support operates inconsistently across different events. Half the time it works the way we want, other half it either is too much or does absolutely nothing for the losing side (IE Jugg mopping the floor and spawncamping vs effectively contesting the objective(s) enough to give the losing side a foot in the door vs Jugg getting its shit kicked in and doing absolutely nothing). 4th point: I'm not against the idea of making events more non-linear but in the efforts of making things balanced, linear/symmetrical layouts do make it a lot easier. I'm sure you've seen the complaints such as "This event is bullshit, US had a way easier way onto the objective" and so on. It doesn't help that some maps just don't really leave much room for non-linearity, mainly the smaller ones. We also aim to use maps that match the player count as well as trying to keep an eye on performance, this again limits our pool of usable maps for any given event. We have some pretty interesting maps but by god do some of them run like shit. I pretty much addressed balancing in the 3rd rebuttal but again, balancing isn't the simplest thing. Doesn't help that depending who's on and active can really change how events pan out balance wise. I'm still curious to hear more about what you mean by a "contingency plan". Overall while some of your arguments seem a bit, shallow, I see where you're coming from. It would help your case if you did put forward some actual examples/suggestions outside of saying "do this" and "don't do this". Contrary to what some people say, we do pay attention to the player base and their complaints/suggestions.
  4. -1 - As others have stated, your activity is low and currently does not meet the minimum requirements for Moderator Applications. As of this response, your current activity in the last month is at 9.1~ hours. You also failed to properly read one of the questions in the template: Which is asking about other communities, as in not Colossal Gaming. Overall your application has brief responses to a majority of the questions. It also seems you've just returned to the community based on your past 30d activity. Finally, your formatting is rather uncomfortable to read and your responses have run on sentences, which make it a bit difficult to understand what you're trying to convey. I'd recommend you spend more time reintegrating into the community and getting a feel for how the server currently operates. I would also advise to put a bit more effort into the application.
  5. -1 - Was removed because it was buggy asf. Highly doubt it'll get readded. Also would make headglitching a lot worse.
  6. -1 - As others have said, I haven't seen you much on the discord despite you saying you use it 24/7 (might be in channels I can't see but I doubt). My experiences with you as a player/member of the community are that positive. I've noticed you tend to lose your cool a fair bit as well as not being very diplomatic in things such as sits and interactions with other players. Your maturity is questionable. My other experiences with you on another server don't reflect well as you struggled to do your role properly and had to get told by your senior staff to do your job correctly etc. It also doesn't help you tend to have lapses of activity on the server. Finally, from what I've seen, we don't really need more Discord Admins at the moment, the team seems sufficiently staffed however others within that team may know more than me.
  7. IDK, I wouldn't say current times are a good indicator considering the whole COVID-19 situation kinda screwing up how schooling is done (I've heard from both teachers and students that it's fucking aids). Don't get me wrong, I hated school when I was in it but, idk, as I've gotten older I've started to appreciate a fair bit of the stuff I learned that I took for granted then. IDK, I guess it's a matter of perspective as well as what you make of it. I'd definitely say transitioning to tertiary education, its a bit of a jarring experience, because all of a sudden, you don't get told/enforced to do things that you did in HS; which you'll either like because you can do it your style or dislike because you'll struggle to get used to managing your own education rather than being basically spoon fed things. Anyway, it's what you make of it, I'd say a topic people don't touch on a lot is the social aspect. HS definitely forces you into social situations due to the close proximity/collaborative tasks/etc. I do kinda miss how easy it was to socialize with friends and people in general due to basically seeing them daily. You *usually* got to enjoy your lunch with people and such. It kinda sucks that I pretty much don't see 99% of the people I went to school with anymore cause everyone went their own way. It took me 3 years to get a proper catch up with old friends at a party. I'd overall say (as others have said), make the most of it and focus on the enjoyable parts rather than focusing on the negatives (which is easy to do due to a fair few being right in your face). It's a small part of a large life, even though it seems big.
  8. +1 - If this goes through, I'll miss calling you guys "Ice age babies" but its definitely needed. The current models looks goofy as hell and don't really give the feel of an elite spetsnaz force. The hitbox is also a bit more improved but not to a broken degree. Overall a good and needed change. GL with it! (≧◡≦)

Please understand that you may not be given access to this Server Group instantly. By typing YES you agree to never abuse your Discord & TeamSpeak powers and acknowledge that you understand the Discord & TeamSpeak Rules (#lobby Channel): Yes Questions Why should the staff team accept you as a Moderator on Colossal Gaming Military Roleplay?: I feel I would be a good addition to the moderation team as I’m a veteran player of the community and have experience as both former senior staff as well as a regular player. I play pretty much daily and am active from peak times to late night usually. I’ve been kinda itching to get back into the staff role and contributing to the server more than just as a user. Discuss your ability to work in a team and give examples that demonstrate this: My time as Event Master was entirely consisting of working in a team environment. I don’t really need to explain how events are run. Also as I went up to Senior EM, I transitioned to leading the team and managing the EMs both in and out of events. Discuss any past experiences that you believe have impacted the server and player(s) positively: My work as EM/SEM definitely contributed to the community through events played by players as well as contributions to the 2018 update during my time as senior. Describe your personality and speak a little about yourself: I’m 20, majored in IT at TAFE. Easy going person most of the time and help out people when I can. Kind of a weeb ngl and probably drink a little too much. My sense of humor is generally good but probably isn’t very PC. Tend to take charge of the situation when people dawdle on an issue/problem, trying to find a solution. Scenarios Scenario 1: A Player is running around on the server and rdming constantly. Despite previous warnings from other staff, this player is still on his murder spree. All the other staff has logged off and you are the only one left. The player count is around 35. You've encountered this player before and have found him to be quite the minge. Question 1: As a Moderator, how do you react? Jail the person or JailTP under the map/admin room depending on the situation. I would explain that he’s violating the Mass RDM rule and he’s going to be warned and banned for 1 week. If he has a prior warn history, I would consult with senior staff about whether it should be extended further. I would then ban him and log the warn in AWarn. Scenario 2: A well-known Player has Mass-RDMed a small squad of Players on his own team. This Player has been a very great member in the past, however recently you've observed that they are slipping up a lot. Question 2: As a Moderator, how do you react? I would TP said player to the admin room/under the map and ask why he’s just massied a group of teammates. Depending on his attitude to the situation and how his behaviour has been as of late. If he’s just been slipping up a little and is sorry about it, I would warn and also explain that what he did is a violation of the rules and that he needs to be more aware of his behaviour, lest the punishments get more severe. If he’s been seriously bad/doesn’t give a shit about his behaviour/actions, I would give out between 1 week ban on consultation with senior staff.
  10. -1 - So, from what I've seen of your activity. It's practically non-existent. You were also recently got kicked from RU for repeatedly extending your LOA and generally not contributing to the faction as an officer. If you can't handle running a regiment to an acceptable standard, you probably wouldn't perform your moderation duties to an acceptable standards. As others have noted, your app is kinda average quality. I can see that you seem to want this position and you claim to have prior moderation experience but this needs to be proven.

  13. +1 - You seem to have a very strong understanding of the position and what it entails. I can't speak for how you are as an individual as we haven't really engaged at any point. On the topic of your example event you made for this application: That is some damn fine event crafting. Like, it's been a while since I've seen someone put effort like that (screenshots, etc.). Your briefings are pretty well done and the plots make sense. You have a good approach to cover/prop placement as you seem to be keeping in mind balancing between functional placement and aesthetic placement. I can't get a full idea because I'd have had to see the whole setup but from what you've shown it's pretty good. Overall, you'd definitely make a good addition to the EM team and bring some great ideas (although that remains to be seen) and if anything, just the extra manpower would help. Honestly this reminds me of my old app. In a good way ofc.
  14. -1 - So, from what I've known of you since I've met you, you come off as immature and mingy. You don't seem to understand roleplay very well and also don't seem to have a strong grasp of the rules of the server. Normally, that'd get you a neutral from me. BUT... As Halstead stated above, after being threatened with a demotion (which was probably with good reason), you left the regiment (Sec Ops) and started telling people that you're trying to kill the regiment. You were going around to other Sec Ops members asking them to leave to assist you with this. Overall this is not the behavior that would suit any member of any staff team on any server. You may change in future as you mature (you come off as rather young, possibly explaining some of your behavior) but letting you onto the staff team in your current state would be dangerous to the player base and would be just giving you more tools to mess around and ruin other people's game play with. As for the entries in your application, it would be prudent to proof read it properly and fix up any grammatical and spelling errors in it (you can use a word processor to do this). Your responses seems pretty mundane/weak and your last 30 days Gametracker shows that you seems to mostly AFK on the server. Why should you get this position over a person who would be more active? In Conclusion, Your application is pretty average and your behavior is SORELY LACKING to be considered as a staff member.

  16. Neutral (siding towards -1) - Your app seems pretty run of the mill, although I believe you mixed up the responses for " Are you staff on any other servers within this community? " and " Have you been staff on any other communities (If so, please list your position, community and at least one reference and their SteamID)? ". However from what I've witnessed of you, You come of as a very aggressive person and have seen you be aggressive and verbally attack trainees during training. You don't come off as a very diplomatic individual and the staff team could do without aggressive members. That's not to say you can't change, but as of right now you have a lot to improve. Moderator and Admin roles can get quite intense and put you in stressful situations with difficult people, if you can't keep your cool with trainees I can't imagine how you would deal with a difficult person in a sit.
  17. -1 - Weak responses to the questions, your grammar and punctuation can be improved quite a bit and your event has only 1 part. You also seem to have a poor grasp of how an event is actually run from start to finish. If you're serious about becoming an Event Master, I suggest you talk to a current EM or Senior EM about how events are done and such. Overall your application needs more work put into it.
  18. Was in a channel with a bunch of people when it happened so there is a ton of background banter. EDIT: Bonus footage of Peter File's Funeral
  19. -1 - Helium, I'll be straight with you. This application is just lazy and low effort. The responses are quite literally copy pasted as they talk about you hoping to achieve being an Event Master...Even though you WERE an Event Master! My experiences with you as an EM in the past were not great. Your scripts were horrible and you literally slept through one of your scheduled events. Now thats not to say you haven't changed (bit doubtful on the sleep schedule though), but my prior experiences with you weren't good. Your event crafting is decent, but it's riddled with spelling errors and other mistakes. Would it kill you to use a spell checker? Back to the application, besides you copying your old one, you didn't even bother to go to the effort of tallying up all your old names to put as evidence of your game tracker. I know you meet the requirements, but you still have to fill out the application properly. Your behaviour recently has been not good. You recently got banned for RDM and refusing to be trained (from what I was told) and you've just generally been a bit...mingey. Long story short, you haven't bothered to do the application properly, your behaviour has been quite poor and you're just not giving me the vibe that you really want this role. I feel if we let you on, you're just going to repeat the same mistakes as you did in the past. Sometimes, some people just aren't meant for certain roles. This would be an example of one. Sorry but this is the truth.
  20. +1 - Application checks out, although some responses were a little...odd in my eyes. Event crafting seems fine, could use more detail. As a player, I can't really comment on you as we never really cross paths, but you don't have a bad reputation or anything, so it should be fine. You would make a good asset to the event team.
  21. +1 - Application seems fine and event crafting, while in a strange format, seems decent enough. Your activity is good and from my encounters with you, you seem to genuinely want to contribute the EM team. The only things I would say that you need to improve is you probably could be more detailed with the event crafting, but its just minor nitpicking.
  22. Neutral - Your app doesn't have any problems and event crafting is sound. However, my experience with you when you were Event Master wasn't amazing. You had issues listening to orders and never bothered to fix problems with your events when they were pointed out. To put it simply, you were stubborn. In addition, your communication wasn't amazing and you had a habit of not being on Teamspeak when possible. I have no doubt you may have changed over this last month or so, but you need to give a pretty compelling reason to be reaccepted onto the event team. The way you left the server was handled very unprofessionally and I hope that you will not repeat that behaviour if you do get accepted. I can't really comment about your activity on the server as I haven't been too active myself. Other people in this thread have noted that you were rather lazy with some parts of your app, however you have made efforts to fix that, so props for that. You still need to demonstrate that you want the role and actually want to do events and contribute to the server.
