To a small degree, i would require to be taught though as i have very basic knowledge in commands.

Have you had any bans to date? If so, please explain to us why we should still accept you:
- My first ban i can recall was a permanent ban for Mass RDM. This was late 2017 or early 2018 (January) where i mass RDMed 54 players (info was taken from my ban appeal)
- My most recent ban was a month ago and was for exploiting with a flamethrower by flaming a player through the spawn barrier between Taliban and US. This ban lasted for 12 hours.
After being banned for 12 hours on the server, i reflected heavily due to the fact that i had risked being banned from the community permanently, one that i have been a part of since 2017 and hold some of my greatest memories through experiences in events with mates, and the role play that I've grown to love. I realised that i could make a positive impact on players experience. Since then i realised that being an event master, a role that i previously was uninterested in, would help me achieve this goal in building networks within the server through positive experiences.
I honestly doubt that due to my history i will receive this position but if the opportunity was provided i would offer every inch of my creativity towards the role, as-well as countless hours in crafting events and scripts.
Do you Understand as an Event Master you are not allowed to abuse your rank outside of the Events you run? (Type YES if you agree):
Do you have any Event Experience (Have you played a Character in an Event or assisted in the Set-up)?:
I've never assisted in a set-up and I don't think I've ever played as a character in an event either. So i have little to no experience other than all the events i have played in during my long time on the server.
What Inspires you to become an Event Master?:
This question is answered below in "Explain why you would like to become an Event Master"
I am inspired by the possibility of creating fun events for players to enjoy. Now that there is multiple factions, there is now plenty of more opportunities for unique events
Do you feel confident in delivering clear and concise briefings and debriefing?:
Yes, i'm confident in addressing players that i'm familiar with and even those that I've never met.

In One Paragraph, please explain why you would like to become an Event Master on MilitaryRP:
Event masters often receive no recognition for their work in events. Despite hours of crafting dupes and scripts they will often be faced with criticism from the community. I will no doubt face this if i am accepted however receiving all the criticism will give me an idea of what players really want in events and how to best balance it out. This is what inspires me. Through trial and error i am inspired by the prospect of being able to craft quality events that can be enjoyed by the majority of players. With the release of the new WW3 update that includes multiple factions, different types of events can be crafted and the possibility of creating new events that players enjoy is what has motivated me to create an application.
In One Paragraph, please explain how you will bring new, interesting and creative Event Ideas to the table?:
Once gaining basic knowledge of the tools available to me as an EM, i will aim to make interesting events whether it is tampering with lighting, fog, and how props can change how an event can feel. I have plenty of free time considering i'm at university and only require to go to class 3 times a week, leaving me plenty of time to create dupes scripts and every other prep required for an event. I can be creative when i am confident with the tools i'm given and understand what i can and can't do in the position. Over time after receiving criticism and praise i will be able to determine what players want in events and i can add my own personal style into events which can be seen in dupes and scripts.
Briefly describe how a "Typical Event" is run (Keep it short, you will provide a more detailed answer further in the application)?:
A typical event involves a briefing beforehand, a mapchange, setup, KOTH, TDM or 3 point as the mode. Pasting the dupes, creating timers. providing support if needed.
most of the preparation is done before the event in the form of dupes, scripts and prep to make sure it is of high quality
Scenario 1: Users are complaining about the quality of the Event you are running despite only being 2 minutes into the Event. You spent almost an hour crafting this event and you were very keen to run it.
Question 1: As a Event Master, how do you react?
As an event master i would write down what the players were complaining about. This would allow me to later reflect on what they enjoyed about the event and what they didn't enjoy. As for how i would react emotionally, i am capable of receiving criticism and improving myself as a result of it. I wouldn't simply post "If you think you can do better then apply for EM" (sorry Midday) but instead i would collaborate with players and staff through private messaging and asking in the discord what people honestly thought. In order to make high quality events then this process must be taken as one can't simply ignore criticism and continue doing the same mistakes.
Scenario 2: During your Event, you urgently need to go AFK. You will most likely not return in time to finish the event and it has only been running for 5 minutes.
Question 2: As an Event Master, how do you react?
As an event master i would contact anyone in the staff discord to try and take over. This would involve sending them any scripts and what needs to be done. If it was the first part i would send through the part one script and have them finish it to the best of their ability. For part 2 i would advise them to do whatever they saw fit such as a simple Ship TDM that many players are familiar with.
If no one was able to take over then i would have to stop the event. I would advertise this in CSAY and change the map over and resume normal roleplay however this would be unlikely as the server frequently has staff online.
You must craft your own Event from start to finish (Include Briefing and Debriefing). You are required to use full details such as map, actions (e.g. !model @ "model"), plot twists etc. Remember to include PassiveRP Elements!
My script here is going to be very basic as i am not aware of all the tools available to me yet and i will just utilise basic event structures for now.
Good luck in your application! If you have any questions, please contact Ellion.
