    Do OSI and OTA get actual roleplay or is it just shoot the man when he is bad? Because they sound like interesting factions but if I can't be an OSI man eating french fries with the boys in the breakroom then count me out

    OSI yes.

    OTA.. they get the RP level that dispatch gets if they're even around for such a thing. Only real difference is they have physical bodies, guns and a strong fist.

    (unless an OTA member wants to correct me)

    takes a lot of work and grind + dedication/determination

    it's one of the most if not the most expensive recipe

    I can tell you that PK auths are given out for legit reasons now. There hasn't been a stupid ass PK (meaning PK auths granted by the team) in awhile. I can't even think of one since I've been back, bar deathwolf getting shot by those guys but IDK who authed it.

    In CW pk's were given out like candy, and looking back on a lot of PK appeals nearly none of them would stick these days, which is frustrating but oh well.

    A perfect example is that a character like Wayne Mcdonough would've been killed by now, he's beaten up characters, threatened to kill characters, hurt characters, etc.

    Everyone just puts up with it. In clockwork he would've been dead for even saying something like "I'll drown you asshole" because no one knew how to deal with a difficult character.

    Obviously it gets to a point though where playing the big asshole will get you killed.

    I've asked for PK auths three times, i got denied once, and I got approved twice. I haven't PK'd anyone because people have beaten me to it, so that's a good way to look at it lol. If you're getting auths on people chances are other people dislike them as well.

    Lol it's not even worth it doe, it looks ugly as shit and only has 80 armor

    It was just how things were back then tbh.

    Stacking PK auths over the course of a while to make things seem more legitimate than they probably were was the go-to (Ie; "I let you off with 'x' when I could have killed you for it and you kept doing 'y'") alongside people being very good at making something sound plausible, especially when it came to feeling threatened IC.

    That in itself was an improvement from early LP though when the same people who PK'd you could turn around and deny your appeal.

    I feel the main reasons people kill each other for stupid reasons is for scripts, why else would you kill of someones character for a dumb reason other than greed?

    I've had a couple of characters that were killed in 2016/2017 on neb that got denied by the same people who killed them... lol

    Yeah man, that doesn't happen anymore. At least not since I rejoined.

    People get killed for the following, from what I've seen
    • Being a rat
    • Getting someone killed
    • Attacking someone
    • Killing someone
    • Shotcopping/Getting the Union to sweep

    Most of the time dumb PK's were done to ensure they didn't kill you first tbh.

    RebelRP had a huge paranoia problem that stemmed from the Europa days on LP (the first real "big" group who were also the ones to start baiting PK's/pre-emptively PKing people who may be a threat to them). Because a lot of the people who were around in those days stuck around the mentality of "better them than me" never really left. If someone thought you'd PK them first or might be an issue to them OOC you'd probably wind up PK'd yourself.

    Killing for gear was fairly common back then too but because it was buried under 934839349 reasons it was more likely to see someone excuse it as disarming them first.

    Its almost like some rebels don't want to actually RP, and would rather kill off anyone that might make something interesting happen for once

    Eh, things are so much better now its almost unreal. If you'd have told me in early 2018 we'd be at a point where people could get into brawls and not have to worry about someone coming back to shoot the other guy later I'd have asked if you knew what community you were in.

    I may have my issues with some stuff in RebelRp but the general conduct & respect isn't one of them, like @sots said. Probably the most diverse/solid bunch we've had in a very long time.

    As rabid said though, that was on LP

    LP died in 2016.

    You don't need to worry about dying unless you physically harm someone or do something to get someone harmed/killed.

    I'd be hardpressed to see someone talk shit/tell people you're going to kill them and get killed for it while other "popular" characters can do it and be untouchable oocly
