How much game time do you have on the server? I have been playing on the server since November of 2016. These are my current stats since the reset of time-played. I rejoined the community after a break in October last year. https://cache.gametracker.com/player/Papa/188.8.131.52:27015/)
What is your current rank in-game? : Respected with Legendary
Are you familiar with the administration mod known as ‘ULX’?: Very Familiar
On a scale of 1 to 10, how well are you known throughout the community by both players and staff members?: 7
Are you currently in Colossal Gaming Steam group?: Yes
Do you have a microphone that you can use to assist you while dealing with players?: Yes
Do you understand that Colossal server(s) are to be monitored sensibly and your duties are to be taken seriously at all times: Yes
Have you had any bans to date? If so, please explain to us why we should still accept you: No
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): Yes
Do you have any Event Experience (Have you played a Character in an Event or assisted in the Set-up)?: Since returning I have been an event character multiple times. Also, I was Senior Event Master on Imperial Gaming Star Wars RP and have already been Event Master on Colossal last year. In total, I have been an event master for around a year so I'm very familiar with the running of events.
What Inspires you to become an Event Master?: I was originally going for Moderator as I felt I wanted a change from being an event master. But, after watching the work moderators do surprisingly I think I'd prefer becoming an event master again. Ultimately, I enjoy giving the player base reason to come on each day and play. I believe that over my break I have developed some new and original event ideas to bring to the table. I know that some of the Colossal player base would rather sit on homemap all day. But, I would make it my challenge to make these players prefer to be playing events than sitting in their base all day.
Do you feel confident in delivering clear and concise briefings and debriefing?: Yes

In One Paragraph, please explain why you would like to become an Event Master on MilitaryRP:
I would really like to rejoin the staff team. I felt as though last time I didn't give it a good shot. I didn't get to know the previous player base well, I was creating events for the players I had left when I went on my break rather than the new player base. Ultimatley I felt a bit out of place. So, after my second break from the server I thought I'd apply for mod. My thought process was that I needed to change my role when actually I needed to give it some time to meet all the new players. Figure out the type of events they'd enjoy. And finally, create some bonds with the player base to help boost my confidence in re-applying. Overall, I want to become an Event Master to create enjoyment for the player base of Colossal.
In One Paragraph, please explain how you will bring new, interesting and creative Event Ideas to the table?:
I had an Ex Event Master come to me the other day. He was Event Master at the same time as this last year. He could still remember one of the events I ran this time last year. He said that it was so creative and fun. It was something that he'd never seen before. Recently, I have been brainstorming all types of new events that I could bring to the table. From Intel grabs to modified battle royales. But of course, everyone loves a reinforcement event on Ship or a KOTH on Mall right...?
Briefly describe how a "Typical Event" is run (Keep it short, you will provide a more detailed answer further in the application)?:
At the start, the event master will put in the Excel document which event slot he/she will be taking. They will then write a short script on the type of event, the script and any commands/props/maps/characters that will be used. This script will be given to anyone helping out with the event (Other staff/Event Characters) The EM will then brief each faction with the required information. 1. The map will change. Props will be set up, a re-brief will be done, points set, etc. The event will run. After the event has concluded the winner will be chosen. 1. is then repeated for a second part. After the second part, levels will be given BEFORE the map changes. Event Masters will then debrief the two factions.
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?
Throughout my experience, this has happened to me a few times. It is understandable that not all events are enjoyable for the entire player base. Usually, if someone does not like the event I will write down their name. Then, after the event concludes I will pull them aside and ask why they disliked the event so I can improve for next time. This will be done in a passive NOT aggressive way. I will not change/modify the event to suit a certain players beliefs as that takes a lot of time (Which as an EM you don't have a lot of) But, I am very happy to talk to anyone if they have had a bad experience with my event to improve on next time.
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?
Unfortunately, even though the server is important, real-life events do take priority. I never run events by myself I'll always make sure that I am running it with another staff member. Therefore, I have a fail safe if I do have to leave in the event early. If it does happen, the other staff member will have the script I prepared before the event (As anyone involved in the event gets the script) So, as long as they follow the script the event should run smoothly whilst I leave.
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!
In Prep for the event. I will fill in the time slot of the event I am running the event in on the EM spreadsheet. From there I will prepare a script to give to the staff and/or event characters being used in the event. Which will look like what I am presenting below.
@@@Both sides to Briefing
Tali Script: The US has some important intel on one of our Forward Operations base in Herat. We need to sneak into their outpost and retake the intel from this US. We will need air and ground support to retake the intel from the US. Take our intel from their base and return it to the Tali outpost set up. US can steal the intel from us so we will need attackers and defenders in this mission.
US Script: The Taliban have recovered some of our intel about our Aircraft operations. This intel is essential if we want to take out the Taliban's Forward Operations base in Herat. We will need to infiltrate the Taliban outpost, recover the intel and transport it back to the US checkpoint. The Taliban will be able to steal the intel from our checkpoint so we will need defenders and attackers. Air and ground support is required.
@@@Prepare for Map Change
Part 1: Capture the Flag 'Intel'
Time - Until one team captures all three of the other team's intel.
Map Change to Redrock via ULX menu
Map dupe placed (Idk if redrock currently has a map dupe?) (I would like to re-do the map dupes as they are very out of date (Lucas and My ones still being used from last year)
Any extra cover place as well.
Blue covered 'intel' placed close to US base. Red covered 'intel' placed close to Tali base.
@@@Prepare to Move out.
@@@Vehicles may be used throughout the event.
Event runs... No event Characters required (NO JUGGS)
@@@Prepare for map change
Part 2 Negotiation Event
Time: Until one team runs out.
Description: The threat of WWIII is imminent. Currently, the Japanese are not allied with any counties/factions. The Japanese Defence Minister Takeshi Iwaya does not know which faction to ally with. He either chooses to ally with the US or the Taliban. The Japanese have a huge amount of power so both factions want the Japanese as allies. Negotiations between the two factions and the defence ministers end in a full out war. Each side will have a certain amount of troops deployed in an abandoned mall. The faction that eliminates the other first will ally with the Japanese. Ultimately, giving them a huge advantage if WWIII does develop.
Tali Script: A Taliban representative will be sent out to negotiate with the Japanese defence minister and a US representative. We want the Japanese's support as WWIII is brewing. We will take any measure to ally with Japan.
US Script: The Japanese are a giant asset in the worlds force. We need them as allies. We will be sending out a negotiator to see if we can negotiate terms with the defence minister so that we can become allies with Japan.
Map Dupe will be placed. Japanese Minister will be set up. (Staff member used, personal script regarding the terms will be given to the minister.) US and tali representatives can say what they like.
@@@Negotiators meet the Minister in the middle of the mall. NO ONE ELSE REQUIRED.
@@@Negotiations have failed. The team to eliminate the others force first will win.
500 Re-Enforcements each will be set
When one team runs out of Re-Enforcements.
@@@___ Are now allied with the Japanese
@@@Prepare for Map Change
Map Changed back to Home Map via ULX Menu
Both sides debriefed on the outcomes/promos.
Thank you for taking the time to read my application.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
