May I suggest actually playing on a DayZ server instead of Hello Kitty Carebear Island Adventure? Or a Minecraft creative server, considering you're playing Epoch. It's a good mod, but without the risk of people doing as the game intends, there's no point whatsoever in playing and building these fantastic fortresses and bases. Especially considering Zs can still phase through walls and creations without problem.
You're missing the entirety of what the game is about.
These people do not have 'the sole purpose of going into servers and ruining peoples fun'. What they are doing is intended emergent gameplay. Post-apocalyptic survival is made much more simple if you can get everything you need in one place. If that one place happens to be the twitching corpse of someone dumb enough to get caught, so be it.
Yes, I'm annoyed. But that's partly because the server I help run has to constantly deal with people crying about core intended gameplay actually happening.
(PS: Vanilla is objectively better than Epoch. There's actually a challenge)
You can suggest what you want, you can also think what you want but I have my reasons however don't for a second think it is because I am scared or cannot play FPS games. I have been playing video games for a really long time. I played UT and all its babies, Doom, Quake 1, 2 and more, Vegas and Vegas 2, RvS, all the COD's and BF games and their spinoffs. My favorite games have always been Oblivion and Borderlands which was just replaced with Borderlands 2. The main ingredient that those games have in common? The lack of cocksmurfs playing the game with you.
When their was a TWL and other leagues myself and others in the clan i happened to be in at the time were all good enough that we raised 50,000 dollars for a charity by playing RvS during a privately funded competition.
So your frustration -which is incorrectly aimed at me-, while I understand your need to impose your will it only came off as condescending and a little buttish and I have a really thick skin so for me to read into something it takes a lot.
Maybe you need a break from running a server. And I have read several posts on forums in the past about people making it their only reason for playing DayZ is to go in and kill other players. They do not care about the loot they just care that they have caused someone to start over, they then leave the server and move on to another.
Anyway, I play on our server because I like the flying and if during my little gaming escapes I want to pretend I am putting on a bikini and taking a boat out fishing
then that is what I want to do without the threat of being sniped or having to deal with stupid comments from other players and or their actions.
