Hello, my friends, Today I am going to be thoroughly evaluating the server going by the name " Cyberpunk2020 " - Apparently run by some community named " DystopianCloud ". To start things off, I want to clear the air about this being a biased review - as I will be reviewing this from both ends of the spectrum as far as good, and bad things going on within the community during my time in the server - though the time was cut short. Let's run down the list of things we will be covering. - Quality of Staff / Willingness to help new players - Lore - Scripts / Custom Additions to the framework - Quality of roleplay - Quality of rules - Population / Population quality Firstly, We will be starting with the quality of staff - Please make a reference to this spoiler as it will be an extremely helpful example as to what the topic will mainly consist of. HTML: http://forums.cloudsixteen.com/js/xenforo/xenforo.js?_v=073095e7:222: Uncaught TypeError: Property 'group' of object #<error> is not a function [PM] someone: i know it sucks but please have patience with the police force. If I were to let anyone go on the police there is no high command, no backup, no supplies,. It would do more harm for the server image right now than good. You might not understand but I am the project lead here. Koro has connected to the server. [PM] Chris Stevenson: but [PM] someone: The other COP already made one of my admins leave the community because I had to RETCONN his asspulled cop unit [PM] Chris Stevenson: well [PM] Chris Stevenson: idk then [PM] someone: No buts. Any more arguing and I will re-think your roster position. This is the 3rd person I've had this conversation with. [PM] Chris Stevenson: ...what? [PM] Chris Stevenson: im not arguing with you [PM] someone: If you can't have patience I will find the roleplayers that will. [PM] Chris Stevenson: what the fuck? I asked you a question. [PM] Chris Stevenson: ohhh wwooooooowwww [PM] someone: you asked me if you can flag up, i said no, you tried to convince me [PM] Chris Stevenson: is this how you treat your players? [PM] someone: Don't start with that shit. Every insulted player starts with that. [PM] someone: Seriously. Either control yourself or leave. [PM] Chris Stevenson: You literally said youd rethink my roster position for liter- [PM] Chris Stevenson: LOL IM NOT ARGUING WITH YOU [PM] someone: Here you are still PMINg me. *** [Black Slicked Back Ha...] would chuckle at the sight of the host of the party having a good time, proceeding to look around for a place to sit before taking up the spot [PM] Chris Stevenson: jesus christ bro you seriously need to treat people with some respect. [LOOC] Sabine Baehr: lots of couch spots [PM] someone: Here you are not saying 'I understand, I'll have patience and see what happens by the end if the week.' [PM] Chris Stevenson: people will leave over stuff like this [PM] someone: This is a classic case of me not giving you what you want and you not liking it. [PM] someone: Normal people would understand my iteration. *** Sabine Baehr would turn to take a glimpse of the view. "I'm Sabine. I live here." [PM] someone: And respect it, and stay for the year long server. [PM] Chris Stevenson: PErsonally I dont have a problem with not flagging up - I have a problem with you carrying an attitude over nothing. [LOOC] Sabine Baehr: CORVO *** [/On the younger side ...] nods slowly, this time not at the music. "Katiana, but call me Kat." [PM] someone: I don't care if you have an problem. You asked me to flag up. I said no. you sai BUT. I said NO. You got hurt. Here we are. Relax [PM] Chris Stevenson: and it';s a little disheartening that you're going to push a punishment against you for even trying to convince you [PM] Chris Stevenson: no offense, thats childish af *** [/On the younger side ...] looks past her at the other conversation. *** Sabine Baehr nods her head to the beat, tapping her foot as well. [PM] Chris Stevenson: I see what you're doing. You want me to insult you so you get an excuse to ban me. [PM] someone: you're rushing things like everyone else. I'm not letitng it happen. Sorry lad. Wait for the police force to be introdduced or leave. [PM] Chris Stevenson: So you're telling me you'd rather have me leavwe than be civilized? [PM] someone: Now you're being delusional. Stop pming me. Roleplay or turn off your computer. Sabine Baehr yells "I'm a kamikaze gonna-" [PM] Chris Stevenson: holy fuck you're so disrespectful [PM] Chris Stevenson: no wonder your staff quit [PM] someone: I'd rather you leave because you're showing you cannot have patience or respect. [PM] Chris Stevenson: how have I not been respectful [PM] Chris Stevenson: have i insulted you? [PM] someone: Are you under the age of 18? *** Sabine Baehr would open her pack. She looks at the two she has left. After a bit of contemplation she shrugs, throwing her one. [PM] someone: it would explain your behaviior, lack of patience and self control. *** [/On the younger side ...] catches the cigarette, finding an old flip-lighter. It's a bit rusty, but it still lights the cigarette. *** Sabine Baehr turns her ears, hearing something about someone needing work. Suspicious Banjo Music has connected to the server. [PM] Chris Stevenson: My behavior? [PM] Chris Stevenson: Im pretty sure I've done pretty decent roleplay up until this point [PM] Chris Stevenson: Or did the time I spent making an app just not matter to you? [PM] Chris Stevenson: or maybe my char development thus far? [PM] Chris Stevenson: It seems you don't care about anyone but yourself. *** [Russian accent/On the...] looks at the other two again. *** [Black Slicked Back Ha...] would proceed to press his right middle finger into his palm, a red ring flowing before fading away, smiling at the man before winking at him, a blue ring flashing around his iris before fading [PM] someone: All this is about is you wanting to flag up. NO ONE IS FLAGGING UP UNTIL THE EVENT NEXT WEEK. I don't care how torn you are to get on a cop and RP. You don't understand the server running. Or How this iteration is playing out. If you did you WOULDNT WANT TO FLAG up. [PM] Chris Stevenson: It's becomming aparent thats the case, especially considering you're threatening me for reasoning with you - taking it as being argumentative. *** [Male / Caucasian / Mu...] gives Corvo a suspicious look. [PM] Chris Stevenson: I literally just told you Im fine with your answer. I'm not fine with you acting this way. [Black Slicked Back Ha...] says "My employer may be interested in...Funding this business" [Male / Caucasian / Mu...] says "What's more is there to say? One on one fist fights, first to submit loses." [Black Slicked Back Ha...] says "Depending on how much profit you'd be pulling." [PM] Chris Stevenson: I'm beginning to see how someone could be perma banned over trivial matters, now. [PM] Chris Stevenson: This explains the permas for nothing but ( VAC ) *** [Male / Caucasian / Mu...] shurgs, drinking down the final sips of his smash. [PM] someone: Say less or face a ban. You are flaming. [PM] Chris Stevenson: Or maybe the bans that say Click close to uninstall gmod = you've sat here and told me to turn off my computer, over what - Nothing. [PM] someone: When posting a complaint on a specific administrator or player, you must provide some sort of proof, or it may be disregarded.•Generalised complaints (on a mass of people or a particular faction) do not require proof, but useless moaning or attacks of any kind will be removed if they are wholly unproductive.•Flaming, flamebaiting, and other forms of pointless instigation of drama/conflict are subject to removal. [PM] Chris Stevenson: I'm seriously doubting reporting you is going to do any good. [PM] Chris Stevenson: you're the owner. [OOC] Ricky Fuego: stuck [PM] Chris Stevenson: and frankly from your demeanor - and youre actions throughout this conversation I am seeing more deep rooted issues behind your lack of playerbase. [PM] Chris Stevenson: it's just the truth. someone has banned 'CyberStellaris' permanently (VAC). Disconnect: VAC. Disconnect: VAC. Read the logs carefully, and youll see that the party is simply explaining to the owner of the server - going by the name " savvyge " I believe - a want to flag onto their police officer. The owner is very quick to become aggravated - and actually handles the request in an extremely combatitive manner. Telling the individual to " Turn off their computer ". Scroll to the Bottom of the logs - you'll see that individual was promptly banned for ( VAC ). During my time on the server, I had the opportunity to witness many people being banned for the reason " VAC " - And through these logs I'm seeing that it was as I suspected. They were all banned for things unrelated to the cheat system - and we can primarily point towards this reason being used as the owners personal " Scapegoat " to save face in light of banning individuals for even lightly disagreeing with him. It is clear to see that within the conversation it's noted by " Chris Stevenson " - For the sake of this, well call him the " accused ". He notes that he doesn't have a problem with not being allowed to flag on - moreso having a problem with the owners attitude. This is the quality of staff - as the owner directly mirrors the quality of the staff team as a whole. It was also found during our time on the server through the invitation of an individual who will not be named, that was indeed using ESP - for educational purposes of course through this process - that the administrators were doing something not beyond the realm of thought. Rewind before this incident - admins spotted my friend and I setting up an ambush for a local bar owner. The mission? Kill this man for disrespecting a woman, and attempting to get her into his human trafficking organization. There was only one problem with our plan. You see, the bartender walked towards his business - but that was until the owner himself - " Savvyge " - Noclipped in, and remained in observer. He then promptly stopped walking, and turned around. Fast forward ten minutes, we move our ambush into an alley. The owner noclips again when the ambush takes place - this time, they don't stay in observer. There the owner stands, an AA12 in their hands. Coming up with an excuse that they were " Role-playing " with the bartender before the ambush. THis was not the case - they were in fact roleplaying with the woman he previously attempted to bamboozle into human trafficking. It was not hard to tell - after all...If ESP couldn't make this apparent, it was apparent by them standing in the middle of the Plaza. That's mostly the bulk of it. As far as the custom items - I mean, they have a ton of custom items that do literally nothing except mimick a sound that other can hear to emulate an action being carried out - but nothing more. Long story short. 1. Their staff is shit. 2. Their owner is a child. 3. They will metagame. 4. Mildly disagree - and you will get VAC beaned. Don't waste your time on this server. It's just another shitty CW server run by a depraved 12 YO with no sense of reason. As for their rules? You can't mug people for personal gain - and they based a lot of their rules off of nebulous clouds guidelines. Smooth one, cyberpunk - smooth indeed.
