Kain and Joe again abuse their 'privilege' Joshbond replied in General Chat & Information
This is a topic to simply make you aware of the continious egotism and corruption of Kain and Joe. How they simply like to not follow rules as they believe they are invincible but easily and enjoyably punish others.
I was spawned as a State Trooper and I unintentionally acquired 4 stars. I immediately tried to get a bribe as obviously I was spawned as police and did not want to have 4 stars.
Unfortunate for me Kain and Joe drove passed me, turned around and started to chase me to try and arrest me. During this I warned both of them that they are breaking their squad (FBI) rules and also PC rules. I appreciate they were not spawned PC but they do have the PC diploma and should be abying by the basic rules like EVERY other PC has too. Kain and Joe should have to abide by every PC rule, not just those that suit them.
Now I appreciate that Squad rules are not server rules and those who break them are to be managed by the leader. But I can assure you all that neither of them will be 'punished' by the squad leader of FBI; so it defeats the points of having rules if people do not follow them. This is not a dig at FBI at all, this is a dig at the fact Kain and Joe think themselves above the law.
So here are the rules they broke as seen below:
FBI:3. You are prohibited from arresting those with a wanted level of less than 10 stars unless if they pose a threat or are actively partaking in an illegal activity such as a bank robbery.
PC: III. Don't attempt to arrest players with wanted level 3 or lower.
You can attempt to Roleplay with these people but you're not allowed to arrest them when they refuse.
Don't arrest people that are spawned cop.
If someone is not willing to end the chase with a Roleplay you're allowed to arrest him.
If there isn't any way to arrest a wanted person you're allowed to kill him.
If you see a criminal attacking another officer and you're near you're allowed to assist the other officer by arresting the criminal.
Now surely if a PC Diploma police officer in a well known squad is arresting other police officers who have aquired 4 stars by mistake, that is not following the PC code. So one of the SAPD HQ is not capable of following the rules that SAPD set. How disappointing it is and this proves how corrupted it is.
In the above images you can see me attempting to warn them of the rules they are breaking but they simply do not care.
I was not committing a crime, I never shot/dmed anyone. I committed no criminal acts but as we know the wanted system likes to give out free stars for no reason. Most importantly I was spawned as POLICE.
While I was running away I jumped down at two different locations to try and get away from being arrested to reach someone to bribe me but the second time I accidently killed myself and was immediately jailed for avoiding arrest as a State Trooper while 2 FBI members (Kain and Joe) were trying to arrest me. Surely avoiding arrest is specifically when a criminal/civillian/group member (non-police group) avoids being arrested. Not cops who are being chased down by other cops. Thats common sense.
This topic is simply me just making people aware of the situation and I have no further comment. Feel free to say what you wish I am not fussed. At the end of the day, its not the first time these 2 admins have done something like this but as always, nothing will happen.
Have a great day everyone and have fun.
New police spawn Joshbond replied in Suggestions archive
Its a very simple idea.
Introduce a new police spawn at all the PD's and one for the Jail. Call the ones at the PD 'Police Constable' and the ones at the jail 'Police Warden Constable'
The difference between a constable and a trainee is that the constable has access to the police radio and their own set of cars at the PD's.
To be a police constable you must have 200 hours in game and must make an application to the SAPD which will be required to be accepted to gain access to the spawn. This gives the SAPD more to do as they don't do much at the moment, lets be honest.
The application process should not be difficult like for the PC qualification but the application is to show that you want to be serious and have access to a police spawn so you can efficiently use the police radio.
This then also prevents noobs and trolls from having access to the police radio as they can only use the trainee position unless they have the minimum hours and have applied and been accepted.
Also for older players who do not have the minimum hour count on the scoreboard ingame because it never existed when they played the most, should still be allowed access to the job even if they do not physically have 200 hours recorded on the new scoreboard thing. This would include people like me and others older players.
This job should be allowed for everyone, criminals, civilian (oops rip ALT) and cops obviously.
CIA Declassification of Government case relating FBI Joshbond replied in General Chat & Information
I think this has indeed been taken out of proportion.
I don't think its fair to bring in discord related discussion to SAES RP. That is indeed called metagaming and unfair towards anyone involved. Instead of applying this to one person Ardron, in this case being IG8820, you have applied it to everyone in FBI which is unfair and not true. 95% of FBI were not involved, so your stating that FBI as an Police Organisation was responsible for what happened and calling FBI out, that is not fair on FBI as a whole. To remind you there were various people involved from various squads and organisations. I wont be calling out these organisations as there is no need too.
The 'coup' that took place was something which could have been organised better @IG8820. Roleplay should be organised between two parties and be agreed before it occurs. I understand your ideology behind it but you defiantly took the wrong approach at it from what I can tell.
@Joe I would like to remind you that the last 5 elections have all included a coup . During my time as Secret Service Director a specific criminal organisation attacked the white house multiple times, declaring it as 'roleplay' but in fact the Director of the Secret Service (being me at the time) did not agree to the roleplay. However it still occurred. This was something which was supported by Admins and staff. I find it very unfair and dishonest from the SAES HQ and the SAES Team to be punishing/calling out people from doing wrong when in fact it was perfectly acceptable when it suited them.
This should have been handled privately between yourself, Ardron and IG. From that private conversation you could have then developed the government roleplay rules to put in place which you have already announced in this topic. Once those rules were fully developed you could have then announced them to everyone, so everyone is aware of the new rules and then everyone has a fair chance to abide by them. However, instead you decided to take sides and immediately and harshly accuse someone of being a 'sore looser' which is unprofessional.
In this situation, no one is in the right. Everyone has done wrong in some way. Now being men and not kids, can you take this to private talks and messages and @Ardron delete this thread please as it is directed towards the FBI as a whole which is not fair. @IG8820 I would suggest you remove your topic about FBI separation as I think this is something that needs to be discussed between the FBI HQ team not just decided by yourself.
@Joe please dont take it as if I am 'having a go' as I am not. I just think this could have been handled a lot better. I have made my fair few mistakes in the past and I learned from them. Everyone makes mistakes gents but lets act like men and move forward and deal with this in the correct fashion. This topic and IG topic has benefited NO ONE.
Side Note: Don't rip into my literature and punctuation please, that was least on my mind when writing this.
Your opinion about a Gang / Squad / Company Joshbond replied in Blackhole
Lmao , 99,9% of the guys who applied got accepted
@Quiz mate. I appreciate your nice comment towards me but I do not appreciate the comment towards ICE. ICE is a new developing squad which its leaders and hq team are trying their best to progress through the levels and make the squad into an awesome level 5 squad. Now during this process ICE will unfortunately encounter some bad members but this happens for all gangs/squad, even when they are level 5. These unwanted people can make a bad appearance for the squad at an early age (ICE being level 2) so it makes it a lot difficult for us to get the amazing reputation that we are trying so hard to earn.
Also being a lower level a lot of the "more experienced" players do not want to join ICE because they could just join a level 5 squad instead. So ICE make best with who actually want to join us, yes we do accept a lot of people but that is because we like to give people a chance as we are a very friendly and respectful squad. However if those people who we gave a chance let us down by breaking our rules and the server rules, then well we get rid of them.
As said above, we are a developing squad and we will make many mistakes like every other squad has done in the past. SWAT made plenty of mistakes during is progression, so did MI6, FBI, SAPA, DEA (when it was alive) and TST. But all those squads learned from their mistakes and so will we.
So instead of slating us off, why not try help us and advise us to improve if you think we are doing something wrong. We are very open to continuous improvement. At the end of the day if you are slating a level 2 squad for trying its best, then maybe look at yourself dude.....
ICE's Response to Organisation Application Results Joshbond replied in General Chat & Information
Well no need for this topic anymore....after all that effort I put in and this https://saesrpg.uk/topic/1214/departure-from-ice/16
Use of exploits reminder Joshbond replied in News and Announcements
Thanks for publicly shaming me. I get it that you wanted me out of the clan and I normally wouldn't even bother posting anything regarding that, I'd just move on with my game and have fun with my friends. But there was no reason whatsoever to shame me like this in front of entire community and that irritated me enough to make this post. Just for the record, I did not try to assist anyone to cover up anything. You have screenshot of the chat, you can clearly see that I advised person involved to cooperate with you guys. The fact that SAES HQ team is twisting everything to suit their own needs is different story. It's no secret that they wanted me out of the clan for quite some time, taking away every bit of access I had with some bullshit excuses with every chance they got. Good for you that you finally found some justification to remove me completely. This announcement alone shows how eager you were. When was the last time you announced clan members who were removed with reasons of their removal? You had people removed from clan because they were deliberately deleting reports of their friends without solving them and none announced anything about that. You had people removed from clan because SAES HQ team has access to read their forum private messages in which, apparently, they were stating their disagreements with some actions from the clan, none ever made announcement regarding that. Let's not mention clan members who were selling benefits on SAES to players for couple of PayPal bucks and some Steam items. And many others who were removed along the way in the past 7 years that I'm here. None ever announced publicly anything about any of them. But hey, let's just shame Gengar and let's ban people. Not only the ones who are abusing (completely fair ban when it comes to them), but also the ones who were just given money from abusers. Since when is it a crime to be on the receiving end of /give command? If you approached the player and asked him to hand you over the money because it came from bug abuse, he would have given it to you without any objection. But no, let's just ban and shame people. Fact that Bone takes money from abusers himself and uses it to sponsor his own events and even buy some fancy properties is no big deal around here. And let's not forget that NanoBob built his own program which automatically inputs numbers for cracking safes in bank robs and gang robs and not only uses it around whenever he likes it, but also distributes it to some other clan members for their own usage. There were times when he was leading his own gang and abusing his access to restart banks in order to use his program, doing a lot more then just 2 bank robs per day and yet none ever did anything about it. I guess rules everyone has to follow don't apply once you reach position of SAES HQ.
I love that its finally coming out. Since my time in staff I have known that bullshit like this was occurring, especially the Masterwind thing which was being ignored and than eventually came out. I 100% agree @Gengar same bullshit was used to push me out as Lance and some other clan members did not like me. So they used any shitty excuse and exaggerated it to get me out of staff and convinced community members to hate me through lies and deception.
Just like real life to be honest, the people who set the rules can never follow them.
Sad to see you get pushed out like that man.
Remove killarrest Joshbond replied in Suggestions archive
@Daryl Is that right??
Clearly imitating a criminal.
When can I have an apology for a clearly edited and taken out of context screenshot?
@Adistar Joe has removed me from the Combined squad discord because I sent a screenshot of 1 line, where Joe said, 'our success rate is only ninty five percent' He says this is leaking information.
Where as you see he sends the entire conversation and 'leaks' more information.
This is how corrupt Joe is and you and many others realising this is great for the community. Need to put a stop to joe and his abusive ways.
Remove killarrest Joshbond replied in Suggestions archive
I think kill/arrest is perfectly balanced to be honest.
What the issue is, is that there are non-police organisations turning up to the Bank to 'assist' police. Which is changing the balance/outcome of BR's. Maybe if they patrolled as police officers more, it might be different.
The only other group apart from squads which should be at a Bank robbery is DE as they are our Army. However they only show when CLO are present which keeps the balance.
Simply stop HLS turning up, make HLS members play as police officers like they should be and keep kill arrest. Problem sorted.
Also I do think that police should be able to equip some sort of armour, to only be used during bank. As due to the amount of criminals vs cops, it helps to keep balance.
Cops/Criminals imbalance opinion Joshbond replied in Blackhole
It is simple, lack of content for squads.
As many have identified above, there is more attracting stuff to do as a criminal, more options for gameplay. Like the only thing for cops that is non-criminal reliant is the VIP escort as we can do that alone, however to make it fun, it does require criminal activity. So we are purely relying on people playing as criminal.
There needs to be more ingame scripts/activities for cops to do without requiring the need for people playing as criminals.
Squads are dieing, its VERY hard to keep people interested and gain new members. Everytime someone leaves the reason is 99% of the time, I am bored and want to play as criminal. So what can we do to convince them? We cant as we have nothing to convince them with.
Once squads die, than it will just kill the server as than criminals will get bored. So yeah, SAES really needs to think of something and develop it fast if it wants to keep its squads alive for longer.
Also one big part of the police side was the ROLEPLAY but lets be honest, roleplay has disappeared from SAES. No one really does it anymore because people cant be asked anymore. People are now just like, oh well its an RPG server so its not pure roleplay is it......
Well it was and thats why a lot of people have left, because roleplay has gone and that was one of the reasons for MANY people joining cops. To do police roleplays.
One idea for a script could be, if cops prevent a BR from completing than a transport mission should occur to collect the money from the Bank that was being robbed and drop it to a secure location, or another bank. That is becasue the bank being robbed is vunerable and needs repaired due to the damaged caused by criminals. So in the mean time the money is moved to another secure location. This is a way to reward squads for preventing the bank from being robbed. The payout could be 50k per squad member.
Departure from ICE Joshbond replied in General Chat & Information
After taking on board a lot of peoples suggestion on clearing the roster and ensuring our activity is up to date
as seen in this topic I made https://saesrpg.uk/topic/1183/ice-s-response-to-organisation-application-results
Last night I decided to remove all inactive members this includes 1+ month inactivity and if they would like to come back they are very welcome to come speak to the HQ team. I was also planning on speaking to Sam today and informing him as it was very late last night when I done it and I was to tired to send a pm.
This was a progress for ICE as currently ICE need dedicated active members and so refreshing our roster is what ICE needed.
However in the last 2 hours I saw a post in our announcement page that I have been kicked and blacklisted for doing the above. Kicking 12 members for inactivity.
This was Sam's comment -
He kicked 12 ICE members for inactivity, No one told him to do that and he don't even told us. It's no reason for kicking inactive ice members because they can come back anytime maybe they have problems with the family or they are not home or it can be someone else.
So even after creating the topic above, when I should not had needed to do it but as Sam is currently inexperienced of being able to create such a topic, I was willing to help and do it myself, which I did. I have been removed for doing my job as Sub-Leader.
So I would like to confirm my departure from ICE and I am very disappointed in Sam's decision.
This is a big loss for ICE today as I had the experience and knowledge that they needed to even have a chance to progress through the levels. Currently with their experience, knowledge and leadership they do not have a chance but I wish them all the luck.
So good luck ICE.
Pro Cop (PC) for Criminals Joshbond replied in Suggestions archive
I strongly disagree with the idea of criminals being able to obtain PC Diploma.
The police side of the server is lacking numbers as it is, gang members/criminals have always outweighed the number of squad members/ police officers.
If people are able to obtain PC while being in a gang than there is no insentive for them to join a squad, which will not help with the current meta/balance of crims to police officers.
I understand the thought process behind this but the SAPD/PCD really need to think about the after effect. The after effect would not be good for any squads.
If criminals want to join a police organisation they have SAI and DE. Cops are not even able to join CLO, so criminals are lucky enough as it is as they can join DE.
As Gracia said above, if this happens than are cops going to be able to sell drugs/weapons? Would that make sense? Not really, so why does criminals obtaining PC diploma make sense?... It does not!
I would also like to remind all criminals & gangs, if this vote goes through as a yes than a lot of people will transiation from squads to gangs. This is because there will be more for them to do as now they can get PC Diploma as a gang member. If this happens that means less squad members, which means less cops to kill.... which than ruins your fun.
Type the name of the best player left the game Joshbond replied in Blackhole
Kazzibo - the one I owe the most. When I was a noob I used to play with some old friends from school just for a laugh, than 4 months after they all decided to leave (as they brought xbox 360's). So I was left on my own and had no idea what the fuck I was doing. So I started trying to make money by selling weapons. I remember spending ages to save up 100k to buy a shitty apartment in West Los Santos. Then saved up another 100k to buy a Banshee. Absolutely loved both the car and new apartment, not knowing what else there was. During my arms dealing time I met Kazzibo and started hanging with him. He explains how SAES works and he asks me to register onto the forums. We both got on well and he asked me to send him an application for B~B. So I did as I was so excited about joining one of these awesome gangs which i knew very little about. My application was discussed between the leaders and he told me the good news. I was tested and somehow passed.
Kazzibo was a great friend and a great mentor, he introduced me to some great people and after 2 years I got staff, thats how far I progressed my 'career' on SAES until I fucked it up. So if you ever read this Kazzibo, thank you very much!!.
Other very important people to me who dont play anymore (I have missed some people due to forgetting names):
My guys, you are all dearly missed!!
Police Combat Shotgun with beanbag rounds Joshbond replied in Suggestions archive
So the idea is very simple for cops.
So for many squad spawns we have access to the combat shotgun as these days criminals are very deadly. However this CS takes away our beanbag shotgun (pump shotgun). Yes the pump shotgun has a lethal alt but cmon we all know its dog shit in lethal PVP due to rate of fire.
So I think it would be fair if the CS shotgun for squads had an ALT fire mode (like pump shotgun) which activated the bean bag rounds to slow criminals. So primary fire is lethal and secondary fire (alt) is bean bag. This should only be permitted for squads.
Also trainees, PC spawns, State trooper and wardens should only have pump shotgun. Not be permitted the CS ALT fire ability as suggested, as only squads should be allowed this.
EDIT: Adding suggestion by riley. If you want to change between lethal and beanbag ammo on the CS you would need to wait 5 seconds. Its not an instant change.
