Spc. Maya Larron PK APPEAL!


Recommended Posts

Name: Dark
Char Name: Spc. Maya Larron

 

Reasons for un-PK:

So, it is as dictated down below, Ryan can correct me if I'm wrong as he was the Show Runner, but I'm fairly certain I got everything right.

We were tasked to destroy a Dam with a bomb, so far so good. I, an engineer specialized in LAVs, was given a LAV Derringer to use, which was great. We did fine for most of the mission until we reached the position of our objective, where we were tasked then to hold. A *big fruity fuck you* hole popped up from the ground and started pouring a canal's worth of bugs onto us, which again, is fair and can be contained by our equipment, but there reached a point where there was one too many bugs that even the Derringer, a very overpowered VIC, couldn't hold at bay. So I started backtracking while taking some minor hits at a slow pace so you know, I don't run over the MI behind me. I eventually reach a wall, to where the numbers of the Arachnids only grow and we have literally no way out, MI and VICs soon to be overrun. I have the brilliantly idea of using my LAV, a vehicle nimble and mobile to steer through the hordes and divert their attention, which I did splendid from an OOC point of view considering the NPCs does in fact hold a hitbox against the VIC, at least from my experience they do, and I still managed to throttle through while mowing them down. Then, I get forced an event upon my VIC, where my wheels are somehow taken out while moving by a talon, and thus I'm completely immobile. I don't get how a perforated tire makes a vehicle COMPLETELY immobile, but that's okay. I put myself there, I can overcome this, I can mow them down and thin them just enough that I can pop the hatch and run back to the MI, to which I did. The Admins went overboard from what I assume is disbelief in my ability to kill NPCs, spawning almost ten tigers at a time, to which I mowed down perfectly, not a single talon of theirs reaching me OOCly, until some genius with a M55 thought he was smart.

I broke paragraph here because that is so unfair that it deserves a paragraph of it's own. Braft, I assume it was, decided it was a very smart idea to shoot not one, not two, not THREE, but FOUR HEAT ROCKETS at my LAV while I was still FIRING just fine and holding my own until I got my window to fuck outta there. At first I thought those were HEDPs, right? Cus the dude is a specialist in M55, so I assume he knows the HEATs are literally going to kill me. But, unfortunately apparently he didn't know that.

With that in mind, it is obvious from a realistic sense my character can't walk away from that, but then again, I feel I was unfairly PKed because, as the event runner said, it was the friendly-fire that killed me. Proof:

So, with all that in mind. I'll gladly take a lost arm or something, I don't know. It just feels unfair that I lose my character to friendly-fire, and a multiple HEAT rockets friendly fire even. It just feels like a very big juicy punch into my fucking balls. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

Hello, event runner here. I feel no strong emotion towards this PK: the simple fact of the matter is that for all that happened, I would've let you do whatever and sit there until you eventually got flowed to death or somehow miraculously managed to get out. This changed immediately when Braft was ordered to fire 4 HEATs as what I assume was an IC mercy kill. When two other players acted to ICly spare your character a horrible fate at bug hands, I decided to enforce this PK rather than let you roll against it.

hello you drove directly into a horde of bugs and got your wheels broke and surrounded by 30 tigers (who rip through armour like paper) so i ordered braft to shoot the m55 rockets in a mercy kill and in order to kill the 30+ tigers who would of surely attacked us afterwards

im not really sure why braft fired 4 rockets but im fairly sure icly it was HEAT, next time i would refrain from driving directly into bugs

i however do not feel any strong emotion about this PK and as someone (in)directly responsible i have no complaints if the PK is lifted or not 🙂

hello, i didnt drive directly into it, as stated. NPCs have hitboxes for vehicles, and my LAV wasnt slowing down. I dodged as I went. the tigers werent near close to hitting my LAV as I was constantly mowing them down

but sure, next time i'll let your drop get over run by the massive horde

i can't comment about the dodging or stuff, but from my perceptive we saw the /event of your wheels being destroyed and your APC completely cut off from the rest of us, surrounded by bugs

i'd like to reiterate i don't really have much part of this PK or much emotional investment of wanting to keep the PK upheld, as it seemed like the admins were going to /ev kill or injure you anyway, so i'm going to stop commenting and leave this decision up to the admins

I'll add on: I don't really mind if this PK gets lifted, either way. I'm not really a fan of doling out PKs anyway, but:

 

I deliberately stopped your IFV with a physgun freeze after I evented multiple times the warriors chipping away at your armor and the chitin gumming up your wheels. I think it's an undisputable fact that a lot of people saw you drive your APC right towards a massive horde of bugs (that we spawned to push people TOWARDS the dam btw.) Keep in mind me eventing that stuff didn't seal the deal on your PK - the only thing that 100% resulted in your PK is Braft being ordered to shoot the rockets.

i get the events, but what am I supposed to do? literally go full reverse and run over half the squad behind me? or somehow be aware of your intentions to push inside the Dam even though the drop lead told us we were tasked to HOLD the position?

all I really wish is that, as the event runner himself said, had the ability to take on what i pre-meditated: my slim chances of escaping that hellhole. i knew it was such a low chance, but it was there nonetheless, and I feel it very unfair to be PKed by friendly fire while i'm literally saving their lives

if i had been flowed by a bug and dropped down, i'd surely take the L, but it was not the case. that's all i'm saying.

I can't really speak as to what you were supposed to do: all I know is that the thing you did in the moment just ended up being really deadly to you. Either way, my input stays the same and I'm not arguing explicitly against this appeal. It's not my call.

So the issue is this.

 

The cause behind your characters death was IC. A mistake was made. Not necessarily your mistake, however your character did lead a heroic distraction away from the platoon which already should amplify the PK risk altogether as you have already acknowledged. If the issue was related to your character dying due to lag, overspawning from something outside of a heroic endeavor or an accident occurred then there would be no issue in overturning this PK. But your characters death came from an IC source.
 

Characters have died in the past as a result of IC mistakes and to overturn such things would not be conducive to roleplay. It’s unfortunate, but that’s the way of it. Your character was offed as either a mercy kill by your platoon or a mistake in communication. An error that was IC and should remain IC.

 

I’m sorry for your loss but the PK is sustained.
