  1. Yeah so I gotta prioritise life. I’m in year 12 and got other priorities that need to be placed above Gateway. There’ll be someone else whose cool enough to replace me. I’m thinking Alex. I thought about staying as em for a bit, but rather just cut myself off completely from Imperial instead of deciding I’ll play again. Me leaving is out of nothing but my own selfish self interest, all you Imperial fellas are great and have equally good rp. I’m sure I’ll be back, but today is not that day. My greatest gift to the community is I now leave 4-LOM an open slot, so you rats can fight for it. My Discord is now free from hourly regimental pings. @Deadly if you ever see this

  3. This is an example of staff disrespect, the player should be warned for such. It is an expectation that you are able to sustain a role in game and be a member of staff. Many commanders are a part of the staff team. It would be preferable to say something that you can bring that’s unique, like a hard drive or skilled leadership. Your answers are generally extremely barebones and lack detail as others have said. One thing I would recommend is utilising ulx commands in your responses to show off your knowledge. another major issue, is that being in DT, I’m well aware of your existence. Though I have very little to say about you in terms of presence. I would like to see you more in the community before you become a member of staff. Apologies but -1

  9. Hi Beast, so before I make any comments, going over your event itself, it appears that this is a clone wars event as opposed to Imperial. There is also a discrepancy with the title of document itself being “Naboo Ambush” as opposed to document itself being Moraband Ambush. I think you misunderstand the point of this. It is not so much the fact of poor planning as opposed to the player base developing donkey brains sometimes. You gotta give exact directions, if you give the player too many choices they may end up forgetting an objective that you needed completed for the event to progress and then delaying the event. But let’s say you decide you can plan for all these variables, you can’t. Majority of players shut down during briefings and don’t listen to a single word you say, they just follow the path and shoot. So you end up relying on people who have no idea what you planned for operating your event and especially in rp, they may do whatever they want and ruin your plans. Your event may also rely on certain regiments being present, what if they’re not there? Overall, your answers are pretty good and you clearly have experience with the server and similar positions. Though for now I will remain neutral.

    I’m literally crying
  11. Do you have Teamspeak 3 installed? Yes Are you willing to test your stress? Yes What is your age? (Minimum of 14 years of age.) 17 List your current playtime: 72 Are you willing to learn new ways to approach situations? Yes Do you have any active warns? No Do you have any problems with any of our current staff members? No Steam ID: ShoulderToCry Steam Profile Link: https://steamcommunity.com/id/ShoulderToCry/ Current in-game alias/rank: Guardsman Nomar Renegan / Sergeant Major TK-3025 / 4-LOM Previous Notable Names/Ranks/Positions None worth mentioning How known are you on a scale of 1-10? 8 How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?: Really want to encourage and facilitate passive rp on ship or base. I think if anything I would want to prioritise making sure people have stuff to do outside of events and not just inside of them. During events I also want to attempt to encourage rp during the events by having event characters for players to interact with and engaging objectives. Have you participated in many of our Events?: 100s of them Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools? (Provide examples): You can change npc proficiency, so that they are more accurate. You can turn off npc friendly fire, so that if you’re stacking npcs behind one another they cannot kill each other. You can customise npc weapons. Name 3 tools that are at an Event Masters disposal within events and leave a small comment detailing each of their uses: Checkpoints: Creates an area players can interact with to set their respawn area, allows for a more fluid design than teleporters and means players can get back in the action quicker and with less hassle. Give props healthbars: Allows for props to be given health so that they can be destroyed. This can be used to create fragile cargo, items or destroyable walls. Turbolaser Tool: Can simulate the firing of a turbolaser with this tool, allowing you to immersively have a prop shoot heavy fire. Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?: Yeah the server crashes basically daily at this point Do you understand that you are not allowed to use your staff rank's powers outside of events? Provide 3 examples detailing different situations that would be considered abuse: -Taking tickets over moderators to give tools etc -Using phys gun on players -Using your event slot to powerplay people outside of events Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before: Most of the time on Imperial if I’m ever on my event slot it’s generally just doing whatever to do some passive rp. But I’ve been an event character multiple times before. On a scale of 1-10, how much knowledge of the Imperial Era do you have? 7 On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands? 6 Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master: Wouldn’t particularly say there’s been a single recent event that’s inspired me so much as I’ve always wanted to be an event master and create fun engaging role play for players. Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)? Path of least resistance is generally not what you planned for. When that happens ultimately you just need to be flexible and willing to adapt. For instance, stealth events are a no no and will never work. How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events? I feel as if I’m at the point where I could very confidently direct players during events and provide a debriefing for all. An event doesn't go to plan and Kanan Jarrus is crushed by an elevator. Players are laughing at you. What do you do? Obviously I cannot have an important event character die from being crushed from an elevator, I think what I would attempt in order to fully play it off and make sure it flows with the event is saying that Kanan Jarrus managed to escape through a ventilation system connected to the elevator, allowing me to reset Kanan Jarrus and keep the event moving forward. A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react? If a user is bad mouthing my events it’s very obviously their right to do so. I would ask to have a chat with him about my events in detail. Find out the areas that he didn’t like and exactly why and then after listening to their criticisms either take them onboard finding it a valid criticism or not, if I don't. Even if I don't like what he is saying I’d thank him for his time and say that I will work to improve myself for the next event. You have to go AFK in the middle of an event you are running and there are no backups available. What should you have done to avoid this? Obviously I should ensure in my schedule that I am completely available to run and deal with this event before taking it. If I’m not 100% sure I will be able to give all my time, I shouldn’t take it. If there is something completely out of my control I couldn’t see coming, there is very little I can do and simply apologise. Players and a few staff members are complaining about the amount of lag they're dealing with during your event. How do you resolve this? With this generally all you can do is remove props that are unrequired to the event and decrease the spawn rates. To conclude your app. you are required to create and design your own event. This includes planets, maps and stage actions. Include lots of detail in your event design. You are required to involve PassiveRP elements. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-PdRKp1FzB2EwTRiREZbzLhzW4IzycGyPUYAeBI69SQ/edit
  12. Name/Alias: Hi, I'm Santa and I'm Staff Sergeant PT-3949, SCAR Trainee R-27 and 4-LOM Previous Notable Roles on Gateway Gaming: Nothing worth mentioning. Highest Rank Achieved: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4bZtBz6OIA but in all seriousness, it was probably Warrant Officer in Shock. GG Server Playtime: On Imperial I've played 230 hours, though on Republic it is easily over 1000 hours. What can you bring to the role?: I've had an extensive amount of experience with this community, I understand what qualifies as a high standard in terms of skill and behaviour. I have the capabilities to enforce such standards and I know I can do just that, my capabilities in my skills is notably shown right now by my placement within SCAR. I have been in numerous serious roleplay based regiments and I want to enforce a high level of formality within the regiment. I believe royal guards should be able to perform to a high standard but at the same time their ability to conform to their given role and represent the royal guard properly is also a focus. Why should we pick you over other applicants?: I am looking to prove myself this time around by actively taking a CO position as opposed to simply sitting in the side-lines as a NCO. Sadly I do not have experience being an actual commander on the server to my detriment, I am however fully confident in my capabilities to operate the royal guard. Don't think I'll get it compared to Corvus but can never blame a man for trying.
