fuck all fat nerds
Servers back up, windoze went full retard.
In other news, I have a plan for tomorrow night that involves saving the current database, creating a brand new instance and giving everyone a PVP/hunting loadout and setting the server to dark. Highest K/D ratio wins. All I gotta do is figure out how to spawn everyone in or near cherno.
Yesterday afternoon (sunset ish for server) there wasn't many people on so I went ahead and farmed stary for a while. I got plenty of stuff and went to take a break for a while. I come back and it's now night time and I go to meet up with Steph who's currently in Zeleno where I left him the night previous.
Cue shenanigans as he fumbles in the dark and eventually dies. So I start to head out to the south, he finds a bike and by using the changes in the sound of the bike rolling on the ground figures out how to keep it on the road.
We meet up in Cherno, I'm a little beat up. We hit up the medical tents, patch up, get Steph an AKS and then gear up at the grocery store. We head out to Balota, nothing there and head north. We make our way to stary, and lo and behold find a car.
Cue an hour ish of scrounging up parts in the dark and we're driving, feeling very accomplished. We head up to the NWAF to maybe find some shinies. Instead we find only despair. After parking the car at the southern barracks I see a whole gaggle of zeds start to meander through the door. I decide it'll be a great time to use a grenade and lob it far too short. It hurts me but no blood loss, just in pain, kills no zombies and they give zero fucks and keep on walking. I turn to hit the zed behind us and I instead toss a grenade about 6 feet behind the car, it goes off, wrecks the car and myself.
So yay terrible luck. Luckily we fought it out with the zeds, I still had a blood pack and was saved from 1500 blood with it and Steph was at about 7500. So we cried a bit and bounced out of there. Still have yet to find another vehicle sans a tractor.
Tl;dr- don't use vehicles in combat areas. Also grenades are the devil.
Server went back up, found a heli site with an L85A2 and NVGs. Crawled around for a bit then someone was standing on top of me unloading a Bison or something. I have no fucking idea how he got there. Megawelp. Assumed the server was mostly empty.
I log in and my hilux is gone. I literally had it an hour after fixing the fucking thing.
Ask people to run a server for you
Within 24 hours accuse admins of cheating
So, I got some retribution.
I'm p sure there's more than one crew stealing vehicles so I'll start from the start.
We had our camp raided yesterday, lost the ural and tings.
I decided to go all lone wolf after this and after I fixed the server to have 52 vehicles last night, I thought i'd get a head start. It was night, I had NVG's and I was bored, so fuckit, I went to find the hilux. I eventually find it in prig and after 30 minutes of running around cherno I had everything needed to drive it out.
The engine and fueltank were still red, but I intended to leave it at the inlet, where we had our first base ever, on a different server. En-route I passed minion on a motorcycle (lol) and alena trying to get the blue minibus working, he had this grand plan of restoring it and going on scoobydoo adventures in it trying to solve mysteries, was all p funny.
I stopped in solichniy and berezinho and managed to rep it all back up to green, with the bonus for 4 more jerry cans.
I eventually get to the inlet and log off.
Fast forward to today, I get the server back up with some help from snake and I log in. It's gone, first thought is because the server crashed that the thing didn't save. Time for a marathon roadtrip, from the inlet, through berezinho, solichniy, elektro and prig stopping at everywhere I can remember saving it. This was made significantly easier when I found a bicycle at the factory in berezinho but alas, no dice.
I go back to berezinho and at this stage, I'm p mad. I burn some time scoping it out looking for anyone, maybe a chance to blow off some steam. Both supermarkets were stocked, the apartments were full, no zombies spawning, weird. Whatever, I pack it in and head back to the inlet to decide what to do. Two hours of running around like a retard and nothing to show for it. WELP.
I eventually think, fuck it. 52 vehicles on the server, I'm just going to fly along the dayzdb map northernmost line on mah bicycle until I find a camp.
2k into my journey and I spot 2 tents, after scoping it out I decide I might aswell take a look, only 9 on the server. The tents have nothing I want or need, I light a quick fire in the middle of the tents to let them know someone found it and I head off again.
After another 2-3k, I come across another camp with some familiar looking vehicles. The ural, hilux and the mysterymobile are there. Along with a shitty skoda and a tent. BOOSH. I ship everything I need into the two vehicles and move the hilux first. I come back, move the ural a little and take out my grenades. Camp destroyed.
My 2 vehicles are safe...for now.
Raided the NW airfield today and got fuck all, found a crashed heli there and lost 8k blood getting a DMR from it, managed to heal up to 12k from animal hunting and then found another chopper spawn with a mk 48, not bad I think.
So I was mincing around up north, circling Gzvodno, Krasno and Dubrovka when the guys in the TS channel announce they're bringing the bus up north. Oh goodie, might be able to get a fight out of them. They don't sound very well equipped, the odd AKM, lee's and winchesters so I figure if I can get in a good spot and hit a tire, maybe in the confusion I can snag one or two. I start rushing to starry, but they change direction, to zeleno, and then to berezinho. I give up trying to chase it and instead check the 3 towns again, and head to the NW airfield, hoping I'll find something there.
I take my time on my way, checking for heli spawns when the guys announce they're leaving berezinho and will probably hit up an airfield but first, they want to set up their tents. I setup at NW airfield and wait.
They take their sweet ass time but eventually they arrive, with dianeces joining them from the northern barracks. After moving 50m I can cover the northern barracks and the industrial warehouse and the firehouse/ATC couldn't see me so I figured it was just another waiting game. Dian informed them that he had moved the weapon spawns outside for the guys, which I could cover and eventually 2 guys break cover and make a dash for the barracks. I decide to wait and hope they'll go for the ammo spawn. In the meantime one of the guys that made a rush for the barracks had the door blocked by a zombie and was running in circles outside waiting for the guys inside to shoot the zombie. Was p funny.
Osmo, their leader had crashed and was reinstalling arma so they were a little unco-ordinated, which sort of worked against me. I had no idea where the other 2-3 people were when suddenly dian poked out the door...then stayed there. I figured, well okay then and hit him solid in the chest, killing him instantly. I crawl back to my original spot thinking there'd be at least 1 sniper in the ATC or the firehouse looking for me who I could try snag before making my escape. Nada. However, by now calbanite had caught up and was coming up to my south, my original escape route. He was now looking for me and the 2 guys still hadn't left the barracks. I figured the jig was up and took out my M4SD and booked it south straight into where I thought cal was. Maybe I could get lucky and catch him unawares. Unfortunately I couldn't find him, and he couldn't see me so whatever. I continued south to the hill right below the airstrip and had a final look for a few minutes but it was a ghost town. There was a crashed heli on the strip aswell, in hindsight I could have played the whole thing a lot better and maybe focused on that instead.
By now they had put 2+2 together (i changed my name and it kept my zombie kills) and called me out.
Was a little scary when Osmo came back on and told the guys, down to a tee, where I would most likely be and was right. Things could have gone a whole lot differently if he didn't crash.
We had a little laugh and I told them how it all came together and how I was by now, long gone. I logged off somewhere around putoshka I think.
EDIT: As a sidenote, I changed my name today when the server came back up, not for this fight. Was initially done because I was curious how my stuff kept getting stolen so maybe if there was something hacky going on, they wouldn't recognise my name and I just ended up not changing it. Props to cal for figuring out it was me a solid 10minutes before everyone else did.

Osmo is me. My fucking SSD likes to crash sometimes and corrupt some recently used files. In this case, /arma2/addons/water.pbo and a few others. Luckily I have a 2nd installation of arma on another disk so I was able to just copy that whole folder and not redownload 8 GB and change.
Anyway, yeah, that sniper hill is not exactly a well kept secret.
Skill training online: Daesis Wrack
Everything else: Cosmic Osmo
so yah, popping between the two ts channels trying to get some one to come blood bag m in cherno. Both groups are in starry, and dont seem to be able to hear me when I'm telling them its the other group. They are scaring the shit out of each other.
So our car was still there. Apparently it didn't die.
But I saw it blow up.
So whatever, :alpha:.
Steph now has the car, I'm still rocking the motorcycle.
This mod. Trololo.
