    Complaint resolved after speaking to both sides.

    We will take this complaint serious and try to implement new rules into Campaign 6.0  like not allowing Admins to be Officers during events to avoid conflict.

    The Guy got a reaction from Jurek in Complaint - Broke (resolved )   
    Hello, actual CF Faction leader here. ^-^
    Depsite the much better wording in the now up post in the general discussions, this is the official complaint so I will be be making my official adendum here. However I will be providing suggestions in the general post just for the sake of improvement (Apologies in advance for any formatting jank, I am performing this atm on my mobile xd).
     
    Now, first mentioned was the all charge incident in the third round of today's campaign battle. To put it politely it was... awkward at best and horrible at worst. At the time the round had carried on for a sufficiently long enough time and pretty much the entire GE and CF force was engaged in a big chase near the CF's right flank. This would have been an ideal time to call an all charge because of the time spent already and since both forces were already conveniently together in the same area. However, such was not the case. Broke actually requested tha,t TA NSL and myself an admin, call an all charge. I personally heavily pondered the idea but did not want to go ahead with it because I did not want to be removed from the team because of "bias" or overstepping my bounds of control, despite being told otherwise in the past. So I merely suggested the idea to the other admins in the internal chat where it was bantered about but dwnied by Chinese and I'm pretty sure Taters (don't quote me on Taters due to the lack of screenshots and my spotty memory of that :P). Meanwhile, the chase had ceased and the GE retreated back across the river in the centre of the map to a couple buildings near the bridge. This would have been an even more ideal time to call all charge due to the now even position that both sides had established. However this was not the case and so the CF took to the offensive to try and close the battle, as unfair as their situation was and failed. I would also like to note that anyone who claims that an all charge should not have been called due to the number imbalance of alive players should look to past events and even casual admining instances of all charge being called during uneven odds (sometimes even with the disadvantaged faction winning through sheer skill). It was after most of the CF forces were massacred in this offensive that the admins who (seemed to be) were running the event called the all charge and the CF lost. I would also like to note that it was said in the internal admin chat that "Not every round needs to end in an all charge." Something to which I would say is true, but the timing was impeccably ripe for the calling of one that round and the lack of it surely cost the CF a victorious round. This is why the CF feels so cheated.
     
    Next is the map chosen for the latter half of the battle... (oh boy :/)
    The CF had a problem with their artillery, namely that while I was trying to set it up during the reset, as per usual, I didn't beat the reset and the cannon dissapeared. Broke is complaining in his post about Merkel's lovely shot that killed 4-6 of our men while the problem was still being sorted and unbalanced the teams, after which nothing was done to rebalance them. This is something that I don't care for, it was fate and it couldn't be controlled. What bothered me was that instead of changing the map, the admins merely said "No arty for either team" and refused to change the map. After an assessment of the battlefield I found that artillery really was an excellent equalizer for the map and really controlled where the enemy could and could not go, but the lack of it also unbalanced the map. Without the artillery, nothing was stoping either side from simply rushing the centre of the map and holding there. While you may argue that the CF should have simply rushed the centre and not complained about the situation, think for a moment. Would the CF rather engage in a combat they think they will lose? Or would they rather fight their enemy on even footing with fair balance. I personally would opt for the latter, but the lack of artillery removed that as a viable option. So what ensued was probably one of the most boring NRP campaign battles I have ever attended about which I could really do nothing about, despite being the leader of an entire faction. This all because someone decided they were too lazy to change the map to something more balanced and fun even after fighting a full round.
     
    To conclude: I'm not asking any admins to step down, or for the GE to give us the rightul title of winner of the campaign (though that would be nice if they wanted to do that xd). I simply want the team to be able to reflect on these mistakes, recognise that they happened, and try to ensure they never happen again. Chinese was responsible for most of the actions and problems listed above but I have no quarrel with him, he's only human after all and no one can please everyone or be perfect. Like I said, I only want the truth to be considered and reflected upon.
    Thanks for your time and attention, I'll now be going to Broke's less meme-y post to provide some suggestions to fix the problem (might as well xd). Yours truly ~ The Guy

    Abused admin powers during an event by refusing to call an all charge until after the faction that he was on had an advantage.
    Later, allowed his own faction to use artillery when the other faction had no cannons. After he was informed about the problem, is response was "I'm not changing the map or resetting" Visual Evidence

    Preferred faction: Confederacy
    Why you'd like to lead: Last campaign I took a break from being and officer to catch my breath and get some rest. However NRP's campaign is so addictive that I found myself wishing I was in the shoes of my faction's officers before long. Thus I have decided to return to Campaign 5.0 with a new energy but this time with the aim to lead the CF. Why faction leader instead of officer? The CF strikes as a faction that needs leadership right now, particularly with the death of our mighty leader Helmut Von Moltke and I feel that I can bring that leadership to the table. I've never led a faction in a campaign before and I'm eager to taste the experience for the first time. I am also eager to introduce new doctrines, strategies and tactics to the NRP campaign that should (hopefully ;p) revolutionize warfare for the campaign. All in all, my reasons for applying are: The desire to lead again that campaign 5.0 instilled in me, The wish to re-stabilise the CF after the death of Helmut Von Moltke and experience the leadership of an entire faction for the first time and focus on introducing new methods of fighting and fun to the campaign. Overall, my ultimate goal is a successful campaign with a CF victory (if attainable), where everyone, regardless of their faction or rank has fun.
    What makes you a good leader: I have served as a well-respected officer and General in Campaigns 2.0 and 3.0. Not to mention having a respectable and coordinating position in the CF artillery last campaign. This is not only important in the sense that I know how to lead, but I know how to work with the CF. I understand their fighting-style, morale, and the officer corps well due to the last campaign. And I'm sure that the officers of the last campaign will agree that I am more than capable and that the claims I am making here are indeed valid. As a leader, I am no gambler, but I'm willing to take risks and not just camp the corner of the map or some random hill till the map ends (because I saw how boring that was as a ranker last campaign :/). However I'm not going to throw away the game. My ultimate goal as a leader is for my faction members and any participant to have the most fun as possible, without compromising the game's integrity.

    Why you'd like to lead: ( multiple reasons)
    I'd like to lead because first of all its Fun. Overall I like to lead also because I am alright at it. I also want to lead just to interact with the community more and hopefully improve the NRP experience for some.  From past campaigns, I wouldn't say leading was great nor bad. But things could've been improved. I find the whole thing Interesting as well. To interact with armies etc etc.  In the last campaign I led the 33rd once. Was great fun I'd say so I want to take it to the next level.
    What makes you a good leader: My confidence. That is the most important thing I'd say. If you are confident in what you are doing, you will prevail. Also because I have lots of previous experience from other servers and by leading my rifles in the 19th.  What else makes me a good leader is my leadership skill. I am not an autist nor I am Napoleon but I do well enough thats what I can say.
     
    P.S: If needed I can add more. Only if requested.

    Confederacy morale is fun to work with
    It is very relaxed yet very tense which is a exciting experience
    What makes me a good leader:
    I lead in the last campaign as Militia, 1st line and mostly 3rd line
    I'm an officer in the 74th
    Strategy games are my favorite and this campaign is strategy based
    Coordinating with  other leaders and coming up with strategy is very interesting

    The Guy reacted to Isaac in NRP Campaign 5.0 Development Updates   
    First Development Blog #1
    So as we have been working hard on the next campaign I want to give you a little update on what we have been doing. 
    This campaign we have thought long and hard on how to bring in new roleplays to the campaigns so that the players can enjoy the battles even  more. We have also spoken about how they will work and how the admin team will manage them. 
     
    Battle Roleplay
    Of course, this is the biggest role-play for the campaign and has been since NRP's initial campaign; this roleplay is simple to understand. Both sides spawn on opposite sides of a map from each other, they both have artillery and cavalry enabled and have to fight on the open grounds until one of the factions has been wiped out!
     
    The rules for the roleplay is very simple:
    No Ramboing
    Follow Officer / Cavalry follow the General at all times
    Trolling and team hitting is forbidden 
    Surrender killing is either allowed or not - depends on the admin running the battle
     
    Siege / Town Roleplay
    This was brought in a little later in the last campaign and it works well, but this time we have discussed ways to maximize the enjoyment of players.
    This roleplay consists of one faction as defenders and the other as attackers. With the new campaign 5.0 in development we have had a conversation about making the attackers actually attack and the defenders defend which is what sieges should be. Due to this we have chosen to stick with it.. 
     
     
    The Rules for this are pretty simple:
    No Ramboing
    Follow your Officer / Cavalry follow the General
    Defender's must defend until the 'All Charge'
    Attackers must attack
    Trolling / Teamhitting = slay
     
     
     
    This is still in development and could change at any moment. If it does change i shall update you all on it.
