This is not the attitude we need for Tac2, I am not saying we need to allow certain things to happen, but forcing people to leave slots, and not going above and helping them understand why you want them to do something a certain way is against the ideals and basis of the Cav. We need to go the extra step to make sure that every slot is known for its limitations, abilities, and basic protocol for use. Coming down on players who have played for years on numerous other servers and may have a different approach is not the correct motion. Now if you try to explain, to build, and grow players, and they continue down that path, then yes, we have our ways of dealing with it. But save it as a last resort, not a hanging consequence for people who may have a different idea of how they learned to do it. None of us were born with manuals in hand, some learned from different masters, and expanding someone's knowledge of approach is reward in itself when we have A+ Grade public players that have improved from the small teachings us as a whole can give.I really think we need to stop saying things like "I've played here for years and this isn't a problem" 95% of the Cav member base would disagree. We are sick of lone wolves, medics running as gunslinger so they can heal themselves. I personally am making an effort to enforce slotting, if you're slotted as a medic, I expect you to respond to calls, and I expect you to NOT come rushing through the enemy lines at us for that call, know your roll and play it, if you want to be front lines, be gunslinger. This is a milsim community, not a sandbox server. If you're slotted as a Medic, play a medic, or you'll be removed from that slot as per SOP. If you choose a support role, play it.
I have since deleted my post as it takes away from the thread's intent which is to provide feedback for S3 and the path this thread is headed down is just not constructive.
I apologize for the manner I may have come across, if at all abrasive then it went beyond my intent.
I would ask that we all keep this thread focused on constructive criticism for S3 rather than getting off hand and possibly inviting negativity.
I understand why you did, but everything here so far is constructive, because a server is nothing without its players. But we need to go above and beyond for every person on it. For we all follow the three pillars of the Cavalry [Loyalty, Honor, Respect], and we need to show that in every aspect of our behavior, our plans, and our actions. You do a good job on the server, leading and teaching where you can. But frustrations with other players leads all of us down a road we need to walk away from. So knowing our frustrations allows us to find points to adjust and points to polish. Nothing is useless in our improvement of the gateway to the Cavalry, continue with the good work I have seen.
Hopefully this all quells the posts about frustrations and misunderstandings between all of us [including our public players]. We need to make sure we talk through our motions, our ideas, and our training. Going above should not be something that is rare, but should be expected of all of our members, from the fresh private to the senior officers.
From this point, I hope this thread continues to point things out for our brothers in S3 that require our feedback to make it better and inclusive for all players and members, no matter their skill level or experience. But as said before, a server is nothing without its players, and we need to remember this.
As stated before, I am excited to continue my time in Tac2, and I hope all of you will do the same.
