Before I start, I want to go ahead and tell you that this review is in essence my experience with HL2RP - and some of it will be opinionated. But, I will be providing some constructive criticism. I have been on various servers that run CW:HL2RP for over 5 years now - and I have seen quite a bit of different aspects of roleplay. I do have to say, here recently I have been extremely disapointed. For a game mode that is this old - it doesn't seem to have evolved very much over the years. Something to compare this to is " Space Station 13 " - a Game in itself that has experienced many evolutions over the years in various areas ( GUI, Gameplay Mechanics ETC ). This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it does take away from the overall immersion you can recieve from playing other forms of RP. Space Station 13 isnt the only example here - We could also take roleplay from Grand theft auto ( Primarily SAMP ), or Arma for that matter. These games have actual mechanics you can engage in - I suppose I can point directly at having some form of job. A great example would be the use of Workshifts as well as owning a business through the CWU. It just really seems as though you either aimlessly sell product out of a store - or go to a workshift to just throw rations into a box ( If you even have that plugin ). I suppose what I am saying, is that performing a /me is a great way to immerse yourself in roleplay. But, it can get a bit daunting whenever you are having to do this for literally everything that you do instead of relying on an actual gameplay mechanic that would allow you to engage in particular acts of roleplay - even alone for example. Again, this isnt necessarily a bad thing. But...I do want to point a few things out that seem more pervailent in todays HL2RP - Bias / Favoritism / Backstabbing - Elitism / Toxicity - Powergame for simply being a part of a faction that has guns and equipment. - Forced RP ( Being forced to act a certain way in a situation. This normally causes Citizen RP to be non existant. Almost certain you know what I mean. ) - Difficulty in starting new servers - Literally plagues of " Minges " - Causing Server difficulties. - An overall, proven to be - immature audience. ( No offense...actually - Nevermind ) ( This isnt everyone - though ) - DDoS threats / DDoS Actually happening constantly - Let's be real - there are A LOT of hackers. But, this is a huge issue with source games all together and not just gmod. - Immature Admins who blatantly disregard opinion. - Low willingness to help new players get into the game, which might be why the community has been in a state of decay for quite some time. Did I say I'd give constructive criticism? Oh yeah, here you go - Literally fix these issues and almost every server will be x10 better. Oh, one more thing. - Stop running your servers like businesses, please. It's taxing to hear you flip through your massive wad of money from charitable donations over discord. I'm not going to name the server owner that's guilty of this - but that was an absolutely disgusting thing to do.
