The reasons for organizing factions

Recommended Posts

Hello before I start I just want to say that maybe you don't know me and maybe I am new to this server, but I am not new to Takistan life. In fact I have 450+ hours played on Takistan life server. And I know that this idea is probably work in progress and/or has been discussed thousands of times but just hear me out please.

This server is dying slowly, the reason might be because people are getting bored. Let me explain, let's use the opfor/blufor example so you log in, you patrol, you guard the checkpoint, you go to kos zones, you capture a blufor/opfor zone, engage some criminals and independents and that is it, you do that over and over and over again. It gets boring after a while, why? Because there is no point in doing so, there is no reward for your actions and your bravery.

I have no clue about running a community, but I have a big knowledge about running a faction and I know for a fact that without chain of command, ranks and units both opfor and blufor will have relatively low popularity. I was a pilot in VDV's air wing rank praporshchik. And I helped a lot with running that unit within opfor so I know what I'm talking about.

And don't give me the power hungry or 12 year old examples, maybe we need some power hungry people to get those factions started, maybe we don't. With ranks and units people would have somthing to work towards and work for it. Without it both opfor and blufor are unorganized and divided, people don't know what to do, and many people are leaving this fancy server. So please just consider this, add ranks, make rules, rule books and organize training for blufor and opfor give every unit a role and orginize them. 

You might say that both blufor and opfor need to be kept simple and rank-less, but what fun would it be to play as those if there is no reward for anything you do and most of your actions are repetitive after a while. 

If you don't do something about it more and more people will start leaving, I saw that there are ranks on TS allready, if you need things such as rulebooks or training guide I would be happy to help, just please do somthing about it, I don't want to see this server die.

And if there is a plan of action in place about this issue you better start it soon or there won't be anyone that will join anymore.

Thank you for your attention and I hope for some response regarding this issue as well as some constructive criticism.

-cheers, Morpho.
