Hello, my name is Lakotiz and I'm the founder & owner of Grand Theft ArmA.
I founded Grand Theft Altis (the name we went by back then), back in July 2014, where I gathered a few friends and we formed the first official GTA staff team. It started out with just 6 founding members that build the very foundation of GTA. We invited all our friends and got ourselves a decent player base within the first few weeks. We were all very new at this and didn't really have a grip yet, but one thing we had was an amazing supportive player base that stayed with us throughout the start and helped us make it through the hardest phase.
Eventually as we slowly grew, we suddenly got the attention of some developers that wanted to work with us and we were lucky to get our hands on a guy by the name of "DnA", that turned out to be very talented. He joined about 3-4 months after the initial launch and this was the point when GTA really started to take off. His coding brought GTA ahead of all other communities in the world and soon we became the most developed Altis Life community in the whole world, setting a new high standard that many servers tried to match.
It has been a very long ride, with both many ups and downs, but overall it has been an amazing experience running this community. I've met some amazing people and I meet more amazing people every day I spend here, which is one of the reasons for me coming back every day.
It was a true community effort that built this amazing place and I'm very proud to be a part of this. Thank you guys!
My work here on GTA
My work here on Grand Theft ArmA consists of behind the scene tasks to keep things running, you might not even notice some of the things I do/handle for the server, but I'm usually involved or in charge of most projects we launch here on GTA. I'm not very involved in the daily work as in compensation requests, reports and etc. so if you have any concerns regarding those topics, then I'm afraid that I'm not your guy.
Due to the fact that I'm usually very busy and caught up in serious matters, then you might find it hard to reach me. I hope you understand and respect that I prefer to be contacted through proper channels, as in approaching Helpers/Support about your concerns, that then will be able to bring up the chain if it requires my attention. I'm not the guy you want to message if you have a question regarding a report.
I'm not a "dangerous" big admin or anything like that, I love to chat with people, especially if you threat me like a normal human being and don't act all up because of my position here on GTA. If I ever happen to be a in public channel, then feel free to talk with me, if I have the time then I'll most likely stick around and have a chat with you!
I look forward to see you on the Grand Theft ArmA servers!
