Welcoming the Official Faction Status System

Recommended Posts

ECRP logo.png

Hello community members of Eclipse,

We in the Eclipse Staff Team are proud to announce some upcoming changes in preparation for the long awaited transition to having "official" criminal faction.

What does "official" mean? Official gangs, are going to be gangs that are supported by the Eclipse Server with game scripts for grouping, faction chat, and all the options that come with having your faction listed in the F4 menu.

How does one become "official"? Official gangs will be those who are able to demonstrate a quality lore, realistic criminal behavior befitting to that lore, and are generally promoting a POSITIVE roleplay experience for other players. The way we will track this positive roleplay experience and general activity is through increased required use and monitoring of a criminal faction thread. Each faction who is looking to become official should start a quality faction thread in the provided section of the Eclipse forums and members should REGULARLY post screenshots and/or videos of their activity, roleplay, and experience playing with others. Creating a thread to showcase your criminal roleplay to the community is the FIRST step in showing your ability to earn the official status. ALL criminal faction threads will be monitored after the clean-up and eligibility for "official" status will be reviewed based on your criminal roleplay without a faction chat or warehouse available.

IMPORTANT: What will happen to my gang now? All current gang faction threads will be archived 1 week from today (2018/SEPT/21), along with all criminal factions listed in the F4 menu. Gangs will be expected to continue to roleplay without /f faction chat and use of warehouses / importing during the next 1 month period (period starts after the 1 week).

PLEASE REMOVE AND DISTRIBUTE ANY F4 FACTION FUNDS PRIOR TO THE REMOVAL OR ALL FUNDS WILL BE DIRECTLY DEPOSITED TO THE FACTION LEADER AT THE TIME. 

IN SHORT: 
1. Remove all treasury money from F4 faction menu or it will go directly to leader.
2. Criminal factions threads and F4 group will be removed 1 week from today on (28/SEPT/2018). No time has been set yet, so be ready BEFORE that day.
3. 1 month review period will commence for criminal gangs / new criminal gang forum threads.
4. Toward the end of October we will be reaching out to gangs and they can apply to become official and show off what they've managed to roleplay over the last 1 month period. Those picked should demonstrate a positive roleplay quality and experience for other players.


If you have any questions feel free to reach out to BallinByNature (Interim Head of Illegal Faction Management), Lewis (Head of Legal Faction Management), myself or another administrator who can forward your questions on if they cannot answer them directly. 

THIS process will be the same process for any faction that does not identify as "criminal" also. The only factions that will not be affected are official government factions.

It is our hopes that this will drive all factions to put their best foot forward with their best roleplay and improve the standard of RP as a whole on the server.

Best of luck to all those who plan to apply!

From,

Eclipse Staff Team.

 

P.S. More information about this will be posted after the 1 week period has ended about your next steps including guides and other valuable information.

Written down and in practice, this is a good system.  However, after the 1 month period unofficial gangs are going to become irrelevant once the better roleplay gangs are accepted.  The current system gives anybody the chance to have a stab in the criminal faction life in terms of recruitment and actual beef.  We can see new gangs rising and participating almost every single day.  This current system encourages those to work their way up to become "recognized" rather than official with an application. You can see this as of recently with the newish gangs... Vagos, Los Zetas, The Gates, etc.  Unofficial gangs will become irrelevant without server sided support after this one month period.

 

I've seen it fail before but I'm hopeful it'll work.

If their roleplay is shit then why should they be relevant? Just because they have a ton of people who don't understand the rules? This update will make criminals have to step up their roleplay, which can only be good, as a lot of groups have been seriously lacking. Quality over quantity.

Also, you should start making rules before making a faction. You know like requirements before you can post a forum faction thread.
1. There should be a required number of experience (eg. 10,000 experience points) before making a faction forum thread.
2. There should be atleast 5 members (including the leader) before making/posting a forum thread.
 

you know.. things like that. But that depends on you guys. Also we should have a Faction Management Team from Administrators who will monitor factions.

That would be awesome to add something in like that and I feel like the leader should have well over 25K exp to even start it up. Then we know they are aware of rules on the server and so on.
