    I wouldn't fault that on the players in the slightest. The server over the years was oversaturated with events, to the point they were the only thing that mattered for most people's story. Hopping on to grab a burger in a shop pales in comparison to an event that happens basically every week. It seems like you're not as much interested in the problem of people playing only for events as you are with certain groups and that style of roleplay. You keep saying that "yeah it's fine, have fun and play the game your way" while at the same time straight up digging and throwing shade at people that roleplay like that.
    It sounds like they didn't bother trying. I don't know many people and played this iteration with no pre-existing group/relationships and made it into events just fine

    i know who u r, but i dont know whos been recently forming cliques that arent as big as 2 to 3 characters anyway, so it feels like your friends are pointing fingers at people that don't exist or exist in small numbers if they still play the server

    People are allowed their own preferences and I'm not going to tell someone they're a terrible person for not enjoying sandbox HL2RP, the reality is that this is for now a sandbox HL2RP server. As long as it is, there are going to be behaviours that are toxic to it's continued existence, and I'm going to say that these should be addressed.

    In terms of targetting people, I'm saying what I believe, and I'm not targetting what I say at anyone specific. If it applies to you, then it applies to you - and I believe those things and wont back down on them. But I don't know who you are or who you play on the server, or anyone really barring those who I interact with and am generally on friendly terms with. So I'm not going to say "YOU'RE THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS SERVER"

    If this impression exists it's for a reason, it might not be the exact reason they say, it might be something different. But there's a problem to be addressed there, and the first place you look is the place they identify. Maybe it's the case that there's no problem with cliqueing on nebulous at all, then you have to ask the question why does it feel like that, and why are almost all players people who've played previous iterations and are involved in the community. Somewhere, there's a barrier for new people that needs to be removed or changed. Whether that's cultural or systematic, you can't go on with only oldfags forever.

    1. CAB go try and sign a peace treaty with a rogue City? Sure, sounds fun.
    2. The guard detail is utterly scarce despite the opposing side having tried to assassinate one of our high-ranking members? Okay, that's... kind of weird, but let's see how this goes.
    3. Rebels bust in, kill most of our guard detail (that were statue'd ragdolls just standing around) and detain the rest while kidnapping CAB? Sure, an interesting development.
    4. Rebels corral CAB into a plane and fly it off to do a hostage situation? Fun, I even got a chance to call in help.
    5. Utter SAW-tier of a villain - completely unrelated to the rebels or CAB - telling us to perform immoral acts while so perfectly hidden within the airplane that even a dozen people constantly searching couldn't find him? Yeah, that's when it got bit too much.
    It was interesting, and I commend the event runners' effort to actually make something of my character's IC actions, but that whole event just became sillier with every half an hour passing.

    Best CAB event, very kino. I remember we couldn't leave the hotel building because it was somehow surrounded by thousands of xenians, making it impossible for us to have ended up there in the first place.

    Don't forget the darkRP cruise ship map we started on either where we somehow got gassed despite proselytes having gas masks that miraculously didn't function.

    Oh and random AI based off the famous movie SAW that wanted us to have a battle royale for no reason lmao

    I mean it was their first event lmao, they tried to do too much and make it LE EPIC.

    Honestly I think that was half the problem. People felt obligated to go big or go home even if they had very little experience running an event.

    couldn't get the number we wanted but couldn't cancel the event due to it either

    they weren't supposed to do those executions, that was one person's decision and we couldn't null it because player choice

    since someone killed all the proselytes the original idea of having the ELA having to deal with a bunch of senators/proselytes trying to get loose on the plane wouldn't work

    as for the cheap announcer it was down to precisely me and my (very limited) event rank permissions so it was all I could do with @dee pixel gone, told numerous people exactly where the guy was (who refused to go into that section of the plane until near the end, they just bunched up in the passenger section) and the escalating acts were meant to spur everyone to hunt him down and lynch him; instead it played out like a twisted trolley problem simulator

    not my best event but I'm glad people like @Snowl and @johnathan took their experience and used it to develop their characters down the line
