What has been your most frustrating experience with a player in game?

I haven't really had something I've carried over to annoy me in real life, I think the one that peeves me the most is the accusations of admin abuse, ita rare that admins play on the server to just play, generally were on to check something, help someone out or test something so the few times we get to play and play properly it is awful when someone accuses you of abusing your power.

Fortunately this happens rarely and is never backed up by any evidence as we as a staff team do not abuse unless its one of those crazy nights in Kavala. However when we are playing as players we play fairly. If anyone of us is caught to be abusing we would swiftly be shown the door.

I love what I do but I really don't feel it's an impressive feat to people who don't know anything about Altis Life, I save my breath.

Ah, no one answered you. 

 

Well personally I think it's when you try to explain someone the rules and they start saying that's not correct to avoid punishment/comp.

With other words, instead of using 5mins on solving an issue that might not even require comp, you gonna end up using 30-40mins.

A guy who used 40 minutes on duping and once he was done he message me on TS saying he accidentally 

 

There is a lot of random stuff going on during the day.

When there's a big issue like all the players being banned a couple weeks ago, and you don't know what's happening, do you guys panic, or do you assume it's a script kiddie?

I used to panic when I first got the power to deal with these things but now it's just about keeping calm getting all the information, calling on the people you may need to help out (Sometimes if its something like what you mentioned I will need assistance from DnA or Lako) but if it's just a SK I can generally find and remove them myself.

As I said at first it was scary but now I've dealt with it a fair few times and the rest of the staff team are quick to help out and work together to solve any of the issues.

There is nothing currently in the works for us opening another server, especially for a seperate game.

How do you guys feel about inequality in moderators/supports work at forums?

For example, if there's a comp request and staff claims to go over them in chronological order which they then don't do that for whatever reason. 

Is that something that that you would consider important? Is equality important to you?

 

I just wanted to be sure about your policy.

This is a question to both the admins and devs.

Can you explain what is it like to run such a popular server and how stressful or rewarding it is, and how much time do you put in to keep it going like how it is?

Doubt they will be that's just my view and not confirmed they won't , perks now seem to just be removed and replaced with better ones I've not seen the xp bar in 14 months

There is not really a need for a higher cap other than showing off how fancy you are, we have strong perks currently and it makes more sense to remove or exchange the current perks than to add more and have to rebalance them all. A higher cap means either better perks or upping the level requirement on old perks, both would have a negative effect.

Have you admins/supports/staff members been banned here before and if so what for? Are people eligible  to become support with bans on their record?

Whilst im not staff they have mentioned previously in many places that it is saved for random expenses that come up as well as when the donation goal is not met.
