Battlefield 4 and VP future

First of all, I'd like to apologize for my absence lately, but I've been thinking about the state of the clan and Battlefield 4.
To me, it seems that the majority of the clan has made Dayz their main game. Hell, I haven't even met a third of the newly recruited people. I understand this actually, the state of BF4 is pathetic, and that's and understatement. But what I see at the moment is that BF4 is causing the same problem at the state of VP.

A few 'facts' in my point of view:

-The dedicated team for BF4 is gone because of a lack of 'dedication' (this includes me tbh) AND because of the incapability of DICE to fix the game. I guess our server will dissapear soon as well.
-As I recall, alot of people were online on saturday evenings. Last saturday evening I came online for like 45 minutes, nobody was playing battlefield and 4 people were playing Dayz. I'm not sure that this happens all the time because I haven't been online. But still, I thought it was strange.

The thing I wanted to ask is: has Dayz become the main game of this clan? Which course is VP going to take in the future?

Hey!

DT is pretty much out, unless the players want something out of it. Azher was very vocal about its loss, so I made sure that if people want to lead it with ESL rules etc. Then by all means go for it. Having a proper team that plays competitively means that there is a server and it gets used for its moneys worth.

It seems that people are not interested. I mean even with 5 people is enough for DT, but people are busy and they have their own lives. That is fine, so we need to be sure about our goal and vision regarding this.

We also narrowed down from 15 to 5 players, so the team is more reliable, but LOL didn’t make it so

Granted BF4 is in a bad state and I’ve really lost my will for this half ass of a product, but I still enjoy playing with you guys casually but at the same time play as a team like we did in DT. We could keep the DT channel for the ones who don’t want to small talk too much so everyone has a place. I like to have casual and knife sharp focus game mode every now and then.

Is VP a clan or is it a community? Sure they overlap each other, but considering how our it’s running now I would see it as a community than a clan, and that’s fine. People can join and talk with other people instead of going solo, it’s a nice philosophy and it seems to work.

When VP’s new site is up we could make our community a bit more tighter so it’s not fragmented. I’d be happy to help, but the DT thing is out for me. Everyone who was leading DT was arranging scrims, talking to people, you know being active and people are not joining. Rainman is right that we should get rid of people who are not into it and we did. Either we’re working with the wrong people or we don’t know what we want.

Sorry for the rant But I understand your statement that DayZ has caught lots of attention and so will Star Citizen when the final game is out. I just see this community as supply and demand, people want and we supply and if they don’t - fuck it. And if the same people ask why about DT, I will seriously tell them to go fuck themselves since they weren’t paying any attention LMAO. Not you Cherry, but you know who I’m talking about, several of us in DT gave a shit we used our time creating callouts, rules and structure with the consent of from peers so we don’t get all hierarchical like SOCOMD, we didn't want to undermine people and treat them like shit.

Rainman is right about this, if people don’t respect VP’s vision then fuck off and right now our vision is distorted due to the state of the game (BF4) and team calamity.

Hey all!

I think that the state of Battlefield 4 at the moment has just made my motivation to play drop completely. I cant even join pub with out raging, screaming, accusing etc. This is why Ive shifted over to DayZ. Its better shape even though its in Alpha or Pre-Alpha and to be honest is a lot more thrilling and exciting that no other game has given to me before.

I understand that the state if BF4 and the dedicated team is not the topic of the forum but that is why I have been lacking commitment after Bunga left towards the dedicated team. We basically had nobody willing to put so much effort in for such a little outcome.

Thanks

Max

Hey Guys and Girls! Sorry for only writing now, checking the forum every 10 min but i lost this one

I know what you mean, there haven't been so many on the last weeks, but many people have their own life remember that, but also their have been some more games to play. me myself have played a damn lot of DayZ, i like it alot.

Battlefield 4 haven't been so much played these weeks... When i'm coming on i check teamspeak and if nobody is playing battlefield at that time i'm playing some other games, Battlefield 4 for me is not fun to play alone. At the meetings i been on everytime but almost nobody is showing up, the reasons for the might be alot of the members have some personal stuff to do.

I will let it go here - would have writed some more but some dumass want me to play:3

Woah, I expected some longer answers than usual but nothing like this

I think the general inactivity is a phase. Later on I will have more time again and I guess that counts for most people. 
About Battlefield: I think it's best to just stick to some casual gaming and to play together on public servers. And as I said before, I'll probably buy Dayz once I got more time again..

So first of all Battlefield 4 isn't dying before I do ... I mean I'd hate to lose all y'all. I know I've been inactive, I know I am an asshole(sometimes, c'mon admit it), I know I make people rage quit, I know I am hard on you but we also had results thanks to my assholeness.

As Cherry mentioned, I'd rather play on Casual stuff guys. You know how much I rage and I don't want to kill anyone around me.
Even tho I have DayZ I hardly play it (unfortunatelly), but I am looking forward into having a chat on TS with all of you.

In my opinion, just chillax. The game will be hopefully fixed and we won't have to worry about raging. Till then, see you on any crazy-ass game you wanna play.

i guess alot of this is a phase... i would really like some more dedication into the clan but atm. people have exams and BF4 is more buggy then Skyrim with witout Havok. i hope later on that people might have more time and maybe when Star Citizen comes out, we can call us a clan again.
