I think that everything being added from a dev perspective is great and I know that there is a ton of effort being put into it. From my perspective, I think this is the least of High Stake's worries. I tried to address this a little bit in the community meeting but I don't think that it had any effect on public opinion.

I believe our main issue with the current state of high stakes is our community. While I love each and every one of the people in the community (I think most would agree to that as I've heard out all sides) there needs to be a switch to promote healthy RP for the transition to a onesync server to be successful and it falls on us.

I'll be completely transparent, no shade just stating what I see. I watched a scenario go down at UD tonight that was just all around shit in terms of RP. You had on one side, Sean Wayne, Tommy Doodle, Mikey Doodle, and Apollo Green vs the whole of cops. When I turned on Kevin's stream I thought, "Oh shit this looks fun AF" and it could have been. That did not turn out to be the case. Eventually, the crims got upset over some scuff and then Bobby also got annoyed and checked out of the scenario. Meanwhile, all the crims were in a discord call together while Bobby was in a discord call with Tanker and Brian. This may not sound important but it is. I guarantee all of the crims made their mind they were wronged and the cops did the same thing (all through OOC shit) which led to more distaste for each other, which I believe is more than IC, and a shitty scenario for both involved in terms of RP. If the standard for cops vs crims is just to hate each other and get salty at almost every scenario what is the point? Why play? I make this particular example because it is so evident from someone looking in and recent.

So to my next point, I believe that people need to have more respect for each other and learn to have fun in scenarios. Crims should offer fun scenarios or even if they don't there shouldn't be that mentality of we hate you and you hate us, which is so so obvious from an outsider's perspective. Being toxic towards others in the community should be the absolute worst of offense in terms of staff's decisions. It is ABSOLUTELY a problem in this community. Example, one person is in a discord with another and they are talking about their last scenario with such and such, next thing you know another member of said discord gets involved in a scenario with them and doesn't offer them a chance in RP. With that in mind and with the current state of things, I don't know how to fix it. I can't even tell you how many times there is shit talked behind people's characters to the extent I've felt it was more just against the person behind the character. The idea is to promote a healthy RP environment and even for myself it is hard not to fall into the popular opinion in some of these situations.

Next, I think moderation and staff team needs to be held to higher standards. Again no shade, but when I hear an admin IC, "If they want to get mad about that we just won't respond to their shit and ignore them," huh???? In saying this, I also think that ALL of us should be held to that same standard, but my emphasis on staff etc is that they are to be the examples. When public opinion turns to, "How is this person even a mod?" or anything of that nature, why would you ever report anything or try to speak up to someone you don't trust anyways? Part of RP, in bigger servers, is holding others accountable and we are HUGELY lacking on that. A moderator or admins first job is to hear out the public in that role, regardless of anything IC and take it as a judge would. I think that favorites need to never be played and a rework of how the mod, reports, etc works needs to occur. Let's be honest, reports don't mean anything at this point if you're a regular in the server.

My point for the staff team is because I believe it is necessary if you want to incorporate more people into the server, which I would assume is the goal if we are moving to onesync. I understand staff is accessible etc but reports are just not serious atm unless you just go out of your way to blatantly break a rule. I will also say that probably 80% of the community could have been eligible for perma bans at some point (including myself), but if I had a shitty scenario break out IC that led to an accidental fuck up I would know that staff would hear me out and I don't know if this is true for people who are newer to the community, especially those who rub the right person the wrong way. I completely understand the entire staff team busts their ass for this server but in terms of actual moderation etc. I think there needs to be a change IF it the status of the server is to be changed.

I'm saying all of this just because I want people to wake up a little. I would like to come back and play on HS and see a population of 50. That'd be fuckin' sweet, but I think a lot needs to be changed besides just adding new features through dev work. If it's not an issue for others, fine. I will still continue to be friends with everyone in the community I'll just take it for what I see it as and get over it. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE ON THE SERVER, we need an environment that can be somewhat forgiving to possible new people (I'd talk to people personally in this regard OOC if they were fuckin up in something that needed addressed and try to help), and one that allows more fun to be had in RP for cops/crims everyone, while still being welcoming to new RP.

**the example given was purely an example meant to demonstrate the divide and also to stir people up a bit to talk. This was very clear through my perspective that there was an issue, and I've seen it so many times. The issue at hand is not that particular scenario but instead the mentality as a whole and how to fix it.

My opinion on loans is that there is a lot that has to go into place before it is implemented. I think the person financing should go in with a down payment, of course, 20% or so. A side thought is is to have it actually play time for your payments to be due. With all of this also comes an assumption that there are some sort of repo men etc. to collect on outstanding loans. 

I've played on servers where people pay their 20% down and never make a payment because there is nobody to repo. Essentially, they drive around in a super car for 20% of the cost and never pay a single payment. They wouldn't be able to take out another loan because there is one existent but at that point who cares right? Loans for items such as super cars, exotics, etc. should come with a higher interest or not be able to financed at all. Cash or go home.

With being out of the loop a bit, I have no idea what the actual discussion is on this but just what came to mind when I saw a very simple question being asked. There is def more to it, if you default on your loan for your house is everything taken, if you get qualified through owning two vehicle are those taken, if so by who and what is the process?

I think for a community vote to be of any credit in this particular case there needs to be more information to go off of. If it's not publicly available don't make it a community decision because my input doesn't really matter when I don't know what is going on behind the scenes and can't somewhat take these questions into play when I'm voting for a decision. Although, I do appreciate the though in wanting the community involved in the vote. Let's do it right if it's to have any weight.

Character Name: Emmy Roberts

Date of Birth: 25-05-1993

Timezone: MST

How long have you been a civilian in the city?: About a year

How active are you in the city?: At least 3 or 4 hours a night but might increase after wipe

Do you have any experience with EMS (Past cities or real life)? : No I don't have any experience but I want a change after the wipe and there's few EMS on and since I'm always on figured might as well give the city more EMS.

Have you ever been arrested/convicted of a felony? If so, explain: : Nope! I've never even been pulled over and gotten a ticket!

Why do you want to join the EMS? (50 or more words required): Why would I want to join EMS? It's what I studied for in college! After seeing my father become EMS, I knew that's what I wanted to do so I went to school and studied for it. Now that I'm back in Los Santos I saw that the EMS were hiring and I decided to put my application in.

What do you think the duties of EMS are?: EMS are the medical professionals who respond to 911 calls and assess and treat injuries to their best ability before transportation to the hospital. They will administer oxygen and depending on their level of certification they will start IV's, intubate, use cardiac monitors, and handle defibrillators when needed.

What do you think the duties of EMS are?: An EMS worker's duties vary depending on his or her level of certification but usually include performing basic physical exams, assessing patients' trauma levels, and administering oxygen. More advanced EMS workers insert IVs, intubate victims, and use cardiac monitors and manual defibrillators.

Character Name: Raymond Guy

Date of Birth: 02-07-1992

Timezone: PST

How long have you been a civilian in the city?: Since started

How active are you in the city?: 10-25

Why do you want to be a LEO?: I recently started coming back to RP, not as much as before due to life. I'm looking to start roleplaying as a cop for the city again (LSPD) and hoping to put my role in and help out the community and other officers with my experience, also gain from theres. Hoping to try and create stories and continue my character story from where he left off before I went inactive because life.

Have you been a part of another Emergency Response faction from our server? If yes, which one(s)?: Highway patrol
blaine county sheriffs
los santos police

Tell us a little about you and who you are (as in-game character, 150 word minimum): Guy has always been a team guy and always trying to help others. He tries to live life like it's his last because working for law enforcement all his life is a career he loves. He loves to joke around with his fellow officers and talk about how they are doing daily. Most officers know who Guy is and what he stands for, some people obviously hate him because they think they can joke with Guy a certain way when they encounter the law, but he tries to treat and explain to everyone how their own actions lead to the wrong path and hopefully they can learn from it. Guy was recently suspended and is looking to come back to law enforcement were he hopes to join LSPD.

Character Name: Henry Wild

Date of Birth: 22-03-1993

Timezone: PST

How long have you been a civilian in the city?: 6 months (on this character)

How active are you in the city?: 12-60+ hours a week (across all characters)

Why do you want to be a LEO?: I've always had a true moral compass, but I was never the type of person for a boring life. Normal 9 to 5 jobs just arent for me. The life of a police officer, or highway patrol, just had this ring to it and in the City of Los Santos, they boasted heavily- almost bragging- about how their police department, LSPD, is #1. A zero corruption division of like-minded individuals pursing the goal of cleansing this city of it's criminal element. So to answer the question, I want to be a law enforcement officer in the city of Los Santos because I feel like it's my true calling in life. To serve the people by enforcing the city laws to the best of my abilities. 

[ooc: Interested in LSPD]

Have you been a part of another Emergency Response faction from our server? If yes, which one(s)?: No.

Tell us a little about you and who you are (as in-game character, 150 word minimum): I grew in a criminal family where I was constantly encouraged to break the rules, to break the law. And yknow, when you grow up in filth, and all of your life you are surrounded by nothing but filth, you usually start to become dirtied by it. That life of crimes plagues you, corrupts you and changes you for the worse. But despite the hectic environment that I was raised in, I remained unscathed by the corruption. I was hardened by my family, but I was not hardened through their criminal methods. Instead, I refused their encouragement to do bad and for that i was often bullied, harassed, even physically beaten by my brothers - and that, that was how I was hardened. I didnt break psychically and my will never wavered. Infact, I grew to hate that my family was nothing but that of a bunch of hardened criminals who tried so hard to corrupt me. So much so, that when I was of age, I immediately left them and began seeking out a new life in the city of Los Santos.

 Even though I try to be the good guy, I still have genes from that family pool that make me act the way I do. I'm short with people, often times I can be insensitive, I have a high threshold for dealing with stupidity yet a shortfuse when it comes to dealing with criminal scum. I can control and retain myself physically, but sometimes I may be prone to verbal outbursts.

I'm an average shot when it comes to pistols. Probably below average with any larger weaponry. My long range vision isnt the best. I'm not the quickest at learning new things, but when i put my mind to doing something, I usually follow through. If I fail at something, I dont take it to heart and attempt to make the best of it.

Welcome everyone to another feedback thread. Today's topic will be about gunplay in RP and how damage ratios are affecting the state of roleplay. Initially, we have lowered various values on guns and even added some drawbacks to extended spray, as to incentive a more controlled and slow style of gunplay where gun control in bursts are more rewarding, but draw things out as to prolong scenarios. You, the community, feel as if we discourage gunplay, and you have very valid reasons for feeling this way. But i'm here to tell you right now: We do not discourage gunplay in general, we encourage healthy gunplay and discourage uneven, unhealthy gunplay.

We want both sides to feel as if they're on even grounds, with only slight advantages on each side to shake things up. We dont want cops being completely dominated in shoot outs because guns are overpowered in damage and recoil control, so, things have changed as i'm sure some of you have seen. Same thing goes for criminals, say fleeing from a job where they just gunned down several innocents and then get sprayed down when cops see an open window cause again, guns allow the initiator to have an unfair upper hand, it is far too advantageous to the point where one side would literally lose in the blink of an eye without getting much of a fight in return.

We dont want a server where people are human tanks though. What I mean by this is, we dont want people who can take several shots without going down. So, when nerfs occur, if you feel nerfs are too general and too much, then voice your opinion here in this thread. It will be open for quite sometime. just like car handling, gun handling is going to be a forever battle with constantly evolving metas. Sometimes sets of guns vs other guns are just gonna be clearly superior, not based on 100% logic per se, but moreso based on the fact that prolonged metas in any game environment get stale and boring, so expect things to shake up while maintaining a specific balance. We dont want metas to lean towards sides, we want metas to lean towards specific guns vs other guns. So cops will always have good and bad guns and crims will always have guns with a similar standard to mirror that as to create an even ground for everyone.

If you feel like you voiced an unheard opinion in the previous feedback thread, please do not hesitate to share your opinion again. You can even mention what went unheard to me in DMs and I'll make sure it gets to staff, but as it stands I'm pretty sure everyone's opinion was heard in the last feedback thread but on the off chance I missed or skipped anyone who feels this way, just lemme know.
