I have 2;
First server i join with my mates, we tell them were all newbies to the game (just purchased) so one of the many admins on the server pop over to us, help us with a little clothing, food, and building supplies. We tell the admin what our plans are and start construction, admin helps us gives us tips and all of that good stuff.
Right near to our completion of the building we decide to go raiding on the server just for a little fun. The admin which was helping us build tagged along in non-admin mode and helped us raid a base.
Apparently the guys that we raided were friends with the owner of the server, so he cried and got our friend the admin banned, and the server wiped…we took the nice admin who was helping us out and moved to a new server…which leads me to my second story…
So we join a new server, a few extra friends in tow. To a server which has one admin who says “I dont cheat by giving items to myself or my friends and if you say anything of the sort you will be banned”
Lo and behold admin has full kevlar + fully modded M4, guess what, all his buddies do also.
They proceed to kill my friends and I as were out scavenging for items, we were brand new so we asked if we could have our items back. Admin says yeah no problem come and get it, we go to claim our stuff back and more than half of it is gone. When we asked about it he said, oh, i gave this to one person, and that to another person.
I mean I understand that part of the game is killing and looting people, but its one thing to kill and loot the body, and another thing all together when you say to a newbie, yes you can have your stuff back come and get it…when its mostly all gone.
My friends & I had enough, we ended up renting our own server where we know the admins wont abuse…we are the admins now.
