I've put in hours in this community too. I've made many missions for A2. Underestimating this fact is also noted and appreciated. I'll give you that the dayz influx increased the amount of bans over the summer of 2012 but after a year or two we were back to numbers we have had before. Personally I think you're looking back at those 2011 days with multiple pairs of rose tinted glasses on. I know, I was there (for the end of the year anyway) and I can tell you that the way we play here hasn't changed one iota since the time before Dayz. In fact if you refer to fucking around as low quality of play, then fuck have things become more strict. Back in 2011 when Zedic would shoot Azzwort in the head for the shits, everyone would laugh. Now he would get a 6 month ban. A teamkill / ND grenade would get you a 'dont fucking do that again dude', now its a 24h ban. If you refer to high quality play as some tactical holy grail of simulation operation professional operator, then everyone has been playing and leading in the game the exact same since I got here.
