What Region are you located in? What's your timezone?

United States, EST.

Previous Punishments?

Got Eaten and suspended for a week for doing an unqueued event, I ended up quitting and people mistake it for me being kicked out. I left due to being burnt out and me making such an event (the DOG tryouts event) was proof of such a thing.

What's your reason for becoming a Gamemaster?

I have been slapped in the face by many people who assume I am still GM, sadly I tell them I'm not anymore because I quit. Recently there have been many things that would be beneficial if I became GM again, such as being able to work more efficiently on R&D shops returning, as well as I have a few RP events for lesser used classes such as Scav, CWU, and Vortigaunt. Sadly I haven't made one for OSE yet but i'll work on it. All in all I miss the creative freedom (however little) that is allowed, and besides, the Pietanium story arch never got past its first IC event.

Have you ever been Event Staff or anything similar on other servers? If so please list below.

Yes, on DEFN (obviously, yall have heard the horror tales)
Revival networks (Halo RP)
BlackWinds (a GMOD based event group)
BeanTownGaming (a TTT server)

Explain how you take criticism from other people, from constructive to border-line harassment.

Well when the criticism is fine and heed general concerns as well as why its concerning then its very easy for me to take. However when criticism is received that has no reason whatsoever other than to be critical (or when the reason is the classic "because we said so" ) I get a lil more...hard headed. if you're an SGM or hell even a higher up staff member you'll know this, there must be a reason other than "because we said" even a crappy reason is still a reason. Thirdly harassment is uh, bad. so i just don't deal with it, aka i tell admins about it and then that's that.

A Combine CmD has openly expressed their distaste for an event you're doing at that moment. It has gotten to the point where he is actively disrupting your event. What is your course of action?

I ask him to stop and if he keeps going I tell a staff member. That is all I need to do .

A Resistance Fighter starts PMing you with some questions about a recent event you've done. However, because you were AFK, he has started harassing you. What is your course of action?

My fault, i was afk, unlike some other people i don't get angry at stuff like that as he is generally curious about an event.

What are GM's permissions both inside and outside of events?

 Inside: you may be GOD, well....limited god...Do everything in which your event pertails, just stick to server rules as well as make sure you stay STRICTLY in the preset parameters that your event queue has laid before you.;

Outside: help with stuck requests, do CWU rp, hopefully in the future do SHOP RP.

You are hosting an important Post-Event DB and all of a sudden, the CO's ask you to leave so they can do their DB and exclude yours. What is your course of action?

I guess I would let them do their DB first, and afterwards finish up my debrief. IC comes first.

A Gamemaster who said he would be assisting you in an event later on today hasn't shown up and now the event is running behind schedule. What should you do?

1. i can try and do it alone
2. i can ask another gm
3. if everything else fails i would need to cancel and reschedule

After getting a green light on an event, you notice there are 3 vehicles deployed at once. It is causing a little lag, what is your course of action?

i could ask OVA/Tech to undeploy for an event, or i could wait until they naturally undeploy.

What's the process GM's take before making events, from start to finish. (This is what YOU think)

in my experience as a GM, usually you start with "what would be fun for me?"
then you ask people in game what they think an event like that would be like, take suggestions
then, once you know what people want, you write up a queue and a plan
you post the queue and wait for a greenlight
once you receive said greenlight you schedule the event
finally, you host said event
after said event you take a vote and see if people liked it
then post a screenshot of the vote to "event submissions" (i forgot the name of the channel im sorry, haven't been a GM for literal months left on like June 17th) 

A Resistance Captain is openly criticizing your event when he isn't in the event itself. It has gotten to the point where he is interrupting your important adverts relating to the event. What should you do?

Once again, you speak to a staff member after asking him to cease what he was doing.

How often do you think GM's should host events?

maybe once or twice a week? Despite having a lot of GMs I barely see many events. (though to be fair i usually play with 40-45 people so low pop)

List three events that you might do if you get accepted (DETAILED AND BE ORIGINAL) [Campaigns and RP Situations are EXCLUDED]

The Pietanium Trilogy:  Now this one isn't one event but three. or, two. the first one i've already done so that one doesn't count. 

Part One: There will be a crystal somewhere on the map, people will be told that it is the legendary obamium as they search, however it in fact is another rare material called pietanium. Currently this event has already happened and can't happen again unless i can't find the person who last had a pietanium shard (Da_Realist, in case he reads this, has the shard). 

Part Two: Pielord (the IC character not me persay) is found out to have lied about the material being obamium, someone (another GM) would lead another crystal to be found, actual obamium this time. Meanwhile Pielord would send in a group of 5 to stop the mining expedition, either by 1. distraction. or 2. if the miners got too close the 5 would be given weapons to defend the crystal and maybe 500 hp each depending on how many people join the event. This will be a one life rule and if any of the 5 die then oop, also if someone else dies they can't return. Kinda like an event base raid and the target is obamium. However I plan for the miners to win to keep the story going. They receive the obamium and however many miners are left will receive a shard. Just as i did with Da_realist i will take their steam ids and names so that i can contact them further. 

Part Three, Ending? : Pielord frowns on his failure to keep obamium secure, he knows the humans are close to unleashing its power. But there's one thing missing, one thing that everyone overlooked, the creator of the resonance cascade, the reason for this universes downfall...the XEN crystal, harvested by only the bravest souls. The journey will be horrible, many vortigaunts controlled by a new xen plant species, one given a pietanium fertilizer, have begun to protect the crystals. The mining crew will have to fight a horde of vorts (only 10 to be honest, the 5 that can fill slots but with a 2 life rule) in order to take the crystals from the plants who promptly die after the removal of the shark, saving any surviving vortigaunts minds. The surviving members will receive xen crystals (take their name and such)

Creation: CWUs have become bored, they heal Combine, fix vehicles, and perform basic taxi jobs every day. However something happened, a certain zombie-esk deity has come down to the CWUs and delivered a message "find the triad, the one of power, a new element you will find" he said this and left, however a scavenger from the resistance overheard whilst on a scouting mission and hurried back to rebel base. The CWU and SCAV must search the map for pietanium, obamium, and XEN crystal. CWU with their civilian shield and scav with their speed race to find the materials (i will put like 4 of each on the map to make it easier) once they have done so they must make it back to the GRID room and R&D room respectively (if GRID or R&D aren't on they'll move it to the debrief room).
The first ones to put all pieces together will form a new alloy, creation of this new alloy is the inspiration of this event. The name of such alloy is currus predictum fossatum. And their faction will be key to something in the future.

The Infection: OH NO, this is a server wide event and people will need to vote on it starting as well as I will need perms from the shark himself! There is a disease, a horrible, gross, disastrous disease. it is called Van Dyke Disease. patient 0 will go around, spreading the disease. with a /me and a roll. if you fail said roll you must change your name to Van Dyke ## and change to a civilian to spread the disease more. There is no cure...at least not yet! Either CWU or SCAV respectively will have a new alloy, currus predictum fossatum, translated, Van Dyke. But the alloy isn't enough. there's something else something....the vortessence! Either CWU (because they are civilians and it isn't ceasefire) or the scavs must use the vorts! The vortigaunts must activate the XEN parts of the alloy, in which it is supercharged! becoming a new ELEMENT! Said element shall be named by those who create it as well, its new. This element will be spread to everyone who made it, their names shall be the curebringers. they will do a /me to an infected "Van Dyke" and cure them with the unnamed elements properties, and that will be the end of Van Dyke disease... and maybe the end of this story arch i'm not sure if I would want to continue it after that climactic ending.

Do you understand and accept the following clause: I will not leak staff information in gamemaster channels or otherwise. I will not abuse my powers in-game or otherwise. I must add [DEFN] to my steam username as soon as I get accepted.

Yes, I've done it before and i'm ready to do it again.

Do you understand the basics of ULX? (If so, list basic commands below)


If there are any questions that you would like to ask me that werent stated in this application you can either DM me on discord, or, leave a comment! ill reply to every comment that asks something as soon as i can.
