  1. I guess this falls more under feedback than suggestions, and is also a little bit of a rant, but I'm hoping to open some eyes about what I believe is one of the bigger problems on the server in terms of game play. I don't have much to say about keep older players, and mainly I don't feel the need to reiterate points already made about how to keep older players, however I do want to talk about how to keep new ones from quitting. I want to preface that I think (sadly I know) I'm likely to get some hate, almost certainly, and maybe some of it is warranted, but just try to realize I'm trying to show a different aspect of the game rather than the cops vs rebel life that so many of us know. I'm not trying to take away from anyone's fun, and what you do on asylum is your decision, i just find it upsetting to see that so many people lack empathy and basic mannerisms when they're put in front of a screen. I'm not saying everyone does, and I've met many nice people here on asylum from all sides of the community. So I ask that before you read, just take a minute, breath, and lt go of any of your biases from the next minute or so. For a second, put yourself into the shoes of a new player on asylum. Not one who has a ton of friends who will guide them through, but maybe one or two who started playing a week ago and suggested it. You log on, your very first time, and see the world around you. Not sure what to do, your friends are barely competent as well, running peaches and apples, ores and weed occasionally. You hope to do some cocaine and heroin eventually, but don't have the funds for it yet so you make your trips back and forth from peaches to Kavala market until you build up some cash. Then you're standing in square, the only place you've decided to travel because of your lack of knowledge of anything else, and then it happens. You've been initiated with someone. You look up from your off-road, thinking it'll be some other peach runner looking to save himself a run by stealing your peaches, and armed with only your rook, but too afraid to fight it out, put your hands up. But who's yelling at you to put your hands up? A peach runner? No. 3 gang members with 7.62s and the blood of cops dripping of the muzzle of their smoking guns. What do they want, you think to yourself? Your car? Your peaches? Your weapon? You, a lowly peach runner, 3 hours on the server, are being stuck up by a group of gang mates, when they ask you now ask you to sing the abc's from z to a. You begin to, and then stutter. You stutter, and hear a sharp click. Then, the screen shows your dead body, car, and the 3 mates. And what do they do? They walk away and do the same thing to another lowly peach runner. Upset that you lost everything, load back into Kavala hoping to get your car and continue your journey. And it happens again. And then you leave for a break hoping they'll be gone. And they are. But then a different gang comes up and does the same thing. It's all legal, you read the rules, but you ask yourself why. But you can't think of an answer. I'm not shitting on gang/rebel life, and I'm not denying the fact that you can initiate on whoever you'd like, kill to boost your bounty, steal, rob and piss off anyone you'd like, all I'm saying is that remember for every time you kill that random civilian walking in town, you are potentially losing a customer, a player, and a voice who might end up supporting your opinion. That group you shot in weed field for fun might be the same people who could've supported your petition to get (_insert thing that gangs and rebels ask for all the time). But they're gone now playing on some other server or game mode because drew a negative view of asylum from the 3 hours they played here, and that isn't good for anyone. You wanna hear my opinion about why the server dying? It's not dying, it's just not growing. For everyone 1 person that decides it's time to move on, 0.5 people decide that they want to comeback. And when people realize that, just maybe, maybe, the server won't be so empty, and the community that everyone is looking for will return. Ending note: I don't want to get hate for this, I'm just trying to have a civil conversation, so please don't go out of your way to shit on me (despite knowing that you likely will) but even if you don't respond, and just think about what I said before popping a random civilian in the head, then I am content knowing my work got to you. In addition, yes I may have exaggerated the "step into" part of the body, but I want to show you what some players do feel like after talking to some of the new players. Thank you for listening to my opinion and I hope we can have some good talk about these issues, clarify anything I might not have correct, and walk away from this all enjoying asylum. Edit: TLDR; Please don't go around killing everyone without care, it stops new people from wanting to play and can push others away. Not taking away at any sort of thing you want to do on asylum, but please just be reasonably respectful.
  2. ^^ This is true, HOWEVER, from my experience, it is case to case. As such, if anyone ever combat logs on you, file a player report and wait for a response. If there is an "Action Taken" there is a chance that you will receive compensation if you link the player report in the compensation report. I've had instances where they have been denied and accepted, so it's always best to give it a shot. Also, if you're looking for others to BH with DM me, I'd love to join.
  3. I actually had a very good RP with Officer Christian Ryan (I think that was his name). Me and my buddies robbed a gas station to get a police response, downed him and brought him up to abandoned hotel. We brought him into a small room and told him we were a security consulting group hired by Clint to inspect the APD reaction time and responses to a set of different situation such as robberies and kidnappings. We asked him to describe a bunch of things like why we decided to siren when he did, how the processing would have gone, what he could have done differently, why we was alone without a partner, etc. Took probably like 10 min. Then, we told him we needed to inspect his gear and ensure it was all in working order, then it would be returned to the nearest APD HQ. He told us he didn't feel safe with his blindfold on, so we took it off, he dropped all his gear, and we left. Great RP with the guy, would kidnap again. Also, I think it should be noted that if a cop doesn't drop his gear, maybe he doesn't feel like you put enough effort in. I once RP'd for 10 minutes to get a Cpl's police cap, and he left laughing all the way back to his hatchback. However, the next day I did the same with a Constable for 2 minutes and asked, he turned me away. Overall, all it takes is some good RP, an understanding that the cop doesn't want to be kidnapped and that you should try to make it enjoyable, and you'll likely be on your way with your own set of cop gear! (In my experiences).
  4. how much? 230k?
  5. wait no it was just a meme
  6. 225k?... all i can offer
  7. What's the amount for them to turn on and off?
  8. I definitely don't agree with the APD having this, since the house is the only refuge. However, for BH, it's usually 1-3 guys and this process can be stopped quite easily. In addition, a BH must have the bounty to enter said house (ex. BH chasing x can only enter x's house, not y's. If x is in y's house, sucks). And, it can only occur once per restart. (ex. you raid x's house, he escapes, you clear bounty and he pops up again, but you can't re-raid b/c its the same session. I think it should be a talent learned or something like that. It would be great for BH at least IMO. Now before everyone hates, just hear me out. BH comes near target's house and notices they are inside. BH says come out and turn yourself in, or blah blah blah, etc. Bounty doesn't come out, BH w/ talent goes up to the door to raid imitates raid process, 3/4mins, but in that time cannot move or shoot unless action is aborted. Notification pops up for bounty in house that his house is being raided, and he can shop the process simply by putting some shots into the BH. If he doesn't stop the BH, or the BH has friends who keep the bounty away from the one raiding or the like, then the BH who started the raid to place a temporary unlock on the doors of the house for 3 min. During that time, the house is unlocked and the crates (if any, become locked). For those 3 minutes, the BH (or anybody) can enter the house (but not open the crates) and try to take the bounty out. After 3 minutes, the doors will lock if they are closed and the BH will be stuck inside (has to be some risk) if he has not exited yet. This way, no crates are accessed, there is equal amount of risk (I'd say) for both the BH and bounty.

  10. I'll tell you before hand if I get the pardon before hand too... Unless you wanna come turtle hunting again?
  11. Thanks
  12. Before we begin: JOKE Step 1 : Turn yourself in at your local police HQ and ask for a police officer who you know can take a joke or will RP and be patient. Step 2 : Ask if they want the short or the long story. Step 3 : If they ask for the short story, you're outta luck and figure it out yourself. Step 4 : If they ask for the long story, clear your throat for a while and google "How did WW1 start" and click the wikipedia link. Step 5 : Explain to them how WW1 started by reading the prelude or opening paragraph. Step 6 : If they start to stop you, tell them that this relates to your charges but we're just getting a foundation so it's not out of context. Step 7 : Once you have finished reading WW1, click on the WW2 link. Begin reading. If they stop you again, go back to Step 6. Step 8 : Read all of WW2, and then start the Cold War. (Note, this only works if you are from or RPing as a American, otherwise skip). Step 9 : Tell them that the reason it affects you is because you've had to live through 2 World Wars and are an alien (which credits the living through both wars theory) and say that you still have flashbacks and forget where you are for a moment, sometimes hours. This should get you the pardon because you were unaware of what happened during your outburst. Step 10 (Optional) : Cry. Note : If you haven't gotten a pardon by Step 10, you're not gonna get it so best of luck from there on.
  13. I represent the country of Canada. We, as a country, are situated too high north to send our money, mainly because the Canadian Geese (see below) are on strike so we can't fly the money down. We would greatly appreciate this team speak server as we have been looking to purchase one for some time. Now, you may be thinking, why just not use Canada Post. Well, my friend. All the moose (see below) have all quit, calling it "unsafe working conditions" smh. Not all hunters hunt moose.... Regardless. On behalf of Canada, we would like to thank you for your time and hopefully you will let us use the team speak. After all, we're only like 200 people in total, and half the igloos (see below) don't have internet (or electricity). Thanks once again.
  14. holy shit i loved that post another
