  1. @Ryan King can answer that one, I'm sure he would love to tell you how many of us told him not to do it. Anyway, back to 120 now. Sanity has prevailed.
  2. Please reread my post, no one is permanently on final warning.
  3. New punishment process and requirements for staff These take effect today (22/03/20) as of this post being made. It has come to Management’s attention that we have some recurring issues with players on the server. To address this, we are issuing the following instructions to our staff. This is predominately for our FiveM server but applies in principle to all our services. We have seen a small section of the community which have pages of warnings and far too many temporary bans, we do not appreciate people who keep flaunting the system so this is aimed to address this. We would rather have 50 solid players than 100 legion square trolls. - All staff must refer to the bans and warnings of players before a decision on punishment is made - this has always been the case but we will be scrutinising this closely. - All bans will now escalate in duration and they will not be shorter than the longest recent ban. - ‘Recent ban’ and ‘recent warning’ will now apply to all within 3 months. Bans will only be issued with the following durations: 6 hours (Minimum - first ban) 12 hours 1 day 3 days 1 week (Minimum - second ban) 2 weeks 1 month (Minimum - third ban) 3 months Permanent - A maximum of 3 temporary bans will be placed (within 3 months) before the player is considered on ‘final warning’. - Players on final warning will now extend to any player with a recent ban of a month or longer. - Any player who breaches a final warning will receive a permanent ban. - Temporary bans are to be a minimum of double the last recent ban. - All permanent bans appeals must have manager+ approval to reduce to temporary. - Minor breaches will result in a warning, a second warning may be granted in exceptionally minor infractions - instead of a third warning a ban will be issued. - All warnings/bans will be considered universal to an account (i.e. they are no longer rule dependent) - Ban appeals of low quality or effort will now be automatically denied - no further information or questions are required. - Three consecutive failed ban appeals will result in a forum ban (no further appeals) unless specifically instructed otherwise by a manager+. Finally, any variation to the above must be authorised by a manager+ and this will be added to the player’s notes for future reference. This may seem an overly harsh line by the staff team but there are plenty of opportunities for players to improve before facing significant punishments. We will also be using this as an opportunity to crack down on the quality of roleplay (not to be confused with requiring hardcore roleplay - we do not require hyper-realism). We have decided to release this information for the community and not just our staff team in an effort to smooth the transition - and not put the onus solely on our staff team. You may now consider yourself forewarned. This should encourage those of you who do silly things because you are 'bored' to behave with the other players around you in mind; you are ruining their roleplay and that isn't acceptable. We are still a welcoming community for newcomers but a certain minimum level of respect for others and our server needs to be maintained. We will also be introducing a few more initiatives to try and improve the experience for new players without negatively effecting the more experienced players. Further information to come soon on that. Regards, Molotov On behalf of the OzzyGaming Management team.
  4. Hello PandaKazii, We evaluate our servers slots progressively. The dedicated server which the FiveM server operates on has plenty of available hardware capacity for a much greater number of slots. The question is really around framework stability and server enjoyment/experience for players. We do not increase slots on the release of major new updates (like today) as we already have to troubleshoot any issues introduced. But it is presently under review and will be for a while to be sure the new update has been successful. We are mindful of the experience of players, if performance is negatively affected or too many people are present then the experience as a whole degrades. Even the seemingly mundane issues like more slots requires more staff. We have added and will be adding more staff regardless to improve our coverage and distribute the workload better. At a fundamental level: we would always prefer 85 players having a solid and enjoyable player experience rather than push to say 150 that sucks for everyone online. The slot limit is used to maintain server health in a number of ways and isn't as simple as just whether we could get that many people logged in. We continue to review this in the coming weeks. Regards, Molotov.

    G'day

    Welcome, glad you are sticking around. Our Squad community is a little quieter than these raucous FiveM types - I hope to see you on the server. @Patricktan112 is leading the charge on seeding and doing an excellent job, I'm sure he would love the company to get the server rolling each night.
  6. Welcome to the server, cheech

    Gday fam

    Welcome to the server robitz
  8. Welcome to the server Barra! Which of our game servers catch your fancy? Our delightful staff team is at your disposal if you need any assistance. Regards, Molotov.
  9. Welcome to the server Rampage, granted a little delayed but we are pleased you are enjoying yourself. Cheers, Molotov
  10. I'd evade Zaydan too if I could, oh, not what you meant? Welcome to Ozzy, don't feed the Admin's. They have to work to earn their food.
  11. Orgys and sandals, I am hardly an expert in sandals but I feel like their presence would really ruin an orgy. Welcome to the server.
  12. Hi all, With our squad server receiving numerous votes and being full every night during primetime, we have risen quickly up the server list... well, this very specific list but you get the idea. Squad Server Listing - Our Server on that listing Thanks everyone for their votes and also for coming to play the server, it has been epic. I'll just take a moment to welcome @Matty Lee Chang and @N. Fox to the Squad staff team. They have been a great help keeping an eye on the server for me and helping keep my workload under control, they have also done an excellent job helping to seed the server. Note that we are still looking for some more staff, so if you know how Squad works (generally) and wish to give a helping hand -> Squad Staff App! Also, if you are playing our server and think certain maps are great... or shit or the version of the map is all wrong; take the time to comment on the Map Rotation Discussion and I will make corrections to the rotation to make sure you get as many maps you love to play on as possible! Regards, Molotov
  13. After an ironically simple fix to the Squad server and maxing out the 80 slots tonight for several hours. I'd like to thank some select people who keep coming back to help me seed the server each evening instead of going to the already full or near-full servers. In no particular order: @Boss @Caldweld @Infinity @John Smith @The Silverback @Justin @N. Fox I appreciate the help and I think the games have been pretty epic. Anyone interested in joining us is more than welcome too, Squad is free this weekend and 40% off during the Steam Summer Sale which lasts until early July - So it is less than $20 AUD which is a steal for how good it is. Cheers, Molotov
  14. Welcome back Justin, I certainly remember you! Molotov
  15. 1 - General Server Rules: 1.1 - Do not abuse any other community members, this can include but not limited to racism, discrimination, hateful and grossly offensive speech. This includes within player names and squad names. 1.2 - OzzyGaming is an Australian based community and all communication is to be in English. 1.3 - OzzyGaming is a community for mature minded players and administered as such - some coarse language and themes are to be expected when playing on our servers. Minor grievances are expected to be resolved between the involved parties or simply by ignoring each other - staff will only intervene if it starts to negatively impact the enjoyment of others. 1.4 - Nobody likes cheaters, cheating will not be tolerated, if you are caught cheating you will be permanently banned from all OzzyGaming services. 1.5 - Do not exploit in-game mechanics or glitches to gain an advantage over other players. 1.6 - Trolling is strictly prohibited. Trolling can be defined as continuously performing an action to annoy/upset or provoke a reaction from other players. 1.7 - Do not AFK in the server, if you need to head off for a few minutes to do something, that is fine, however if you are away from the keyboard for a long time you will be kicked. 1.8 - Our staff team are volunteers, please treat them with courtesy and respect. All their instructions must be followed promptly and faithfully, regardless of whether you agree or not. 1.9 - Staff are not always online or monitoring chat/servers. All issues (Except ban appeals and staff complaints - see 1.10) should be raised in Teamspeak for urgent issues or via Discord/Website for less urgent. Please be prepared to provide some evidence to backup your claims. 1.10 - Staff complaints and ban appeals must be lodged via the appropriate forms on our website - anywhere else will be removed and a warning issued, refusal to stop will result in removal from all other services. 1.11 - Breaching any rule because another player does is never a valid defence. 1.12 - OzzyGaming empowers staff to act to protect the server, community and services. This includes but not limited to balancing servers and maintaining an enjoyable gaming experience on our servers. 1.13 - Imitating a staff member will result in being banned from all OzzyGaming services. 1.14 - These rules are open to adjustment and update, ignorance will not be an acceptable defence. Staff will endeavour to announce rule changes but the responsibility remains with the players. 2 - Communication & Squad Leader Rules: 2.1 - Spamming will not be tolerated (voice/chat). 2.2 - Squad leaders must have a mic, no exceptions. 2.3 - Squad leaders reserve the right to remove any members who are not following instructions or being disruptive. 2.4 - It is preferred that all squad members have a microphone to communicate with the squad, however, text chat can be used if you do not have a mic. 2.5 - Squad leaders are expected to assist their squad as best they can, including helping new players if they are able and it is practical too at that time. 2.6 - Squad leaders are permitted to require mic usage in their squads but this must be noted in the Squad name to warn players. 2.7 - Players must never create Squads without the intention of leading them. 2.8 - Squads can be locked to reserve space for friends or clan mates during staging and into the first 5 minutes of gameplay – however no squad is to remain locked if it has 4 or fewer members - The only exception is for vehicle squads which must have at least 2 members. 3 - Gameplay Rules: 3.1 - Squad is a game built on team play and communication, all players are expected to play accordingly. 3.2 - Metagaming is strictly prohibited. Metagaming can be defined as gaining information outside of the game (TeamSpeak, Discord or other services) and using it in-game to your advantage. Server balancing is not considered Metagaming however deliberately team swapping to obtain information is. 3.3 - Team killing is strictly prohibited. Accidents happen but continued, deliberate or malicious team killing (or wounding) will be punished severely. 3.4 - Squad members are expected to follow the instructions of the Squad leader unless it would breach a server rule or staff instruction. 3.5 - If a team is fully capped out the game should end quickly due to ticket bleed. However, staff reserve the right to end a match early for a fresh game to begin in such circumstances. 3.6 - Wasting assets is not permitted and abandoned vehicles may be used by other Squads. 3.7 - Players are expected to join a squad - Unassigned players may be kicked to free up slots. 4 - Seeding Rules: 4.1 - 'Seeding' is the period when the server is starting to build population, seeding rules apply until the server reaches 20 v 20 (40 total players) plus some reasonable leeway. 4.2 - During seeding do not deliberately destroy or camp enemy FOB's and logistics vehicles. Forcing players to travel a great distance on foot will cause seeding to take more time (Which no one wants). 4.3 - Seeding will generally automatically trigger Infantry Only variants (INF) of maps, these maps are small so please do not camp uncapturable points (Main bases). 4.4 - If one side is dominating, that side should pull back to allow the other side a fighting chance and not camp in ambush positions permanently - You might not get as many kills but if you kill the server seeding by being a dick then you will be removed. 4.5 - While seeding both teams should be fighting over the central points and not pushing to cap bases closer to each other's spawns. 4.6 - FOB's should not be built on the central points, if this is done then the enemy team may destroy these FOB's - this is the only exception to 4.2. 4.7 - When 6 or fewer players in total, players are welcome to have knife fights and other mutually agreed on games until more players join. 4.8 - Especially on larger maps, both teams must be given an opportunity to set up a FOB for their team near the central points without coming under attack. This should happen soon after each team reaches 3 players (min required to create a FOB). 4.9 - No armour is to be used during seeding - the small teams are unable to combat such threats effectively and it will slow seeding down Last update: 24/07/19
