Before you click “Dumb”, please know that I am fully aware the majority of you couldn’t give half a shit about my opinion. All I ask is that you read this in its entirety before posting “lol mad” or something equally retarded. Thanks.
Recently, I’ve been playing quite a lot of DarkRP. It seemed fun, and I’ve heard a lot of my friends enjoying themselves while playing it, so I decided to click on it while browsing for servers and hopped onto one that had a suitable amount of players. After enduring an incredibly obnoxious and difficult-to-mute dubstep track that played in the background of the loading screen and spawning in some shitty subway with two admins bickering over whether to ban someone for something called “RDM”, I selected the job that seemed most appealing - “SWAT” -, which started a vote, and I went on my way.
About 12 seconds later, a lovely pop-up on my screen read, “Trilobite has not been made SWAT!”
Curious, I questioned the server as to why I was not made a SWAT in OOC. Nobody responded, but a simple press of the TAB button revealed the answer - out of 21 players, 15 WERE THIEVES. So, in OOC, I mentioned that it was mingey to not elect someone as a police officer simply because you didn’t want to have someone stopping your crimes, to which the following response was issued:
I ignored this and selected a job that did not require a vote - Guard. After some appeasement, I convinced one of the many thieves to hire me to defend their base, and I received a hefty sum of money for doing so. All went well for about 15 minutes until a pick-up truck blasting rap music drove up to the sidewalk and the thieves inside began to demand entry into the base. I respectfully informed them that I had received an order not to allow anyone inside, and when one of the thieves stepped over the KOS line, I shot him. The other thieves opened up on me, and when I respawned, I was jailed for 240 seconds. The only reason the admin gave was the following:
“Invalid KOS line”
I tried to inform him that I did not create the KOS line, and since it was on the sidewalk outside of my client’s base, it was valid, but as it turned out, the thief I killed was the admin. So, my client got raided, all of his stuff was stolen, and I was freed 240 seconds later. Of course, the admin was nowhere to be found, so I was forced to jump off the rooftop I was planted onto, dropping me to 55 HP. A couple seconds later, I returned to my client’s base and apologized for being unable to defend them, only to be teleported to the same spot and jailed for an additional 360 seconds with a new reason:
After issuing about five demands in OOC, the admin finally arrived and asked me what I wanted. I pointed out that I hadn’t broken NLR since I was jailed for 240 seconds, which is four minutes - a minute longer than the MOTD states NLR is. A chat bubble appeared over his head and I assumed he was going to respond, but as soon as I rolled my eyes back towards the screen after taking a sip from my drink, the following derma panel was visible:
At this point, I gave up on DarkRP. I had been on the server for less than an hour, and I had only roleplayed for approximately 12 minutes. How can you people play this? How can you even do anything without arguing with admins?
It’s also noteworthy to mention that the server was choppy as fuck (~15 FPS or below) because it had every single fucking stupid little shitty addon CoderHire offered. I highly doubt the owner attained those addons legitimately, because that would have totaled approximately ~$5,000, and there’s no fucking way his userbase donated that much.
