  1. There was a decent amount of people interested, and a decent amount of hype. The ungodly wait caused this to decrease significantly, and to the end of the gamemode being given a good old Control+C and Control+V. A discord was made to build hype. Forum posts were made to give hype. Future plans were made to give hype. First day after release was arguably successful, as old players wanted to see these rumored changes and uplift that was discussed and expected. Second day FLOP. It has nothing monumental about it, and the cycle of Jailbreak continues.
  2. I dont mean to attack you personally though Napoleon, Jailbreak is just a shit hand that somebody would be dealt eventually. It's an unfortunate circumstance, the only reason I feel the need to poke fun is because I put a high standard (and obviously unfair) on what would be changed, so you can imagine my disappointment, no offense. Especially when I'm being told and convinced at every turn that this is where the gamemode finally reaches peak once again.
  3. No offense, but I dislike the fact that there were delays and talk of something impressively new only for the ACTUAL changes to be that ''the server was released''. Incredibly fun of you to take the role of something you had no time nor the effort to learn from/about. Wasn't there a list of requirements on the Jailbreak role topic? Glad to know they take all things into mere consideration.
  4. haha i love shaking nerds upside down and hear their dollar coins drop from their pockets fuck you and i love bullying
  5. Think he meant bullshit as in he is here to roleplay. Anyways I do think he deserves to be unbanned, there clearly needed to be more time given in the sit. Morgan most likely dismissed the fact that there was the potential for an explanation unfortunately, due to being misguided that it was a simple massie. +1 please unban this nice man
  6. That’s what I’m getting at remix. Every time Jailbreak got a new manager, the game still had the same problems and same stale mechanics and gameplay that the last manager didnt deal with. They were basically a staff application accepter, not an actual person willing to go “holy shit, people are starting to lose interest, maybe I should starting doing something!”. You make it seem like this would be a naive attempt to release it during a low player base time (with TTT being fresh to its own revival and the return of most players to school), and also that a little map change here, and a gun or two there would be classified as a “revamp”. Im content with the thought that this will be the final time that we #BRINGBACKJAILBREAK or whatever cancer you’re used to about the game mode. I’m just curious that if someone actually cared enough to make major changes and incentives to play, would people actually consider making jailbreak their main game mode again and enjoy themselves, as they have before and potential new players might experience themselves. I’m not saying we’ll go back to the “golden days”, but unlike history repeating itself, we’d give it a solid attempt.
  7. Unfortunately I do believe csgo wouldn’t work out for Poseidon as a community, we’d have our foot in the door far too late to be respected or even recognized by those in the CSGO “game modes” player base. Not to mention the people that have come to our Gmod community have very poor computers/laptops, hence why Gmod has become their main game and would split up the community to some degree. Its unfortunate but Jailbreak would most likely be easier to attempt and more likely to succeed in Gmod.
  8. I don't believe that it's the fault of ''rebelling prisoners'' that caused such detriment. You can blame the fact that wardens would do boring gamemodes, which ended up having people leave due to ''days'' being stale, but having rebelling prisoners can be handled easily with a DECENT warden, let alone a good one. Rebellers can be stopped by being somewhat capable. I do understand where you're getting at though, there were times I noticed where guard team would become to stressful due to overwhelming success of rebellions, but it is usually due to the fact that the warden himself was shit, nothing to do with the gamemode, but the players. I wasn't there for previous revivals, I wouldn't know of people having ''the time of their lives'' for two days. All I can tell is, they probably noticed that nothing changed and went on to a different gamemode. As for different guns, that would be an important part of the agenda, I'm sure new weapons would be an aspect that everyone would expect of a revamp. I thank you for your time very much however, the consideration of the weakness/unpopularity of guards is an important factor if Jailbreak were to be revamped. CSGO server given to m3 smt. But it would be a different game entirely as well, would people be ready to adapt to that?
  9. Just first of all, and no disrespect to you, but I would't even dream of having the server start in such naive manner of day/weeks after the restart of our TTT gamemode, both that it would be detrimental and disappoint the community if such little time and effort was put into the ''final shot'' of Jailbreaks revival. What I want, and what I hope people want, is a total revamp that is given major time and dedication, that incites new players to stay and see the potential of Gmod Jailbreak. I understand that if this is created, people will jump over for it, not to say it will be as drastic as our community being spread apart, but I am aware that it will cause some staff/our playerbase to at least try it out. However, you have to understand, if people see that this revamp its shit, they will leave. It's just the way it is. Having our community check it out, would then incite new plyers to actually try Jailbreak, as the gamemode will be pushed up in the server list and we have the potential for new players to join and experience this great gamemode. The shift of players wouldn't cause backlash in the community to the point that we would be suffering, as they would quickly shift back in the case that Jailbreak didn't work out, and we would all say adieu. I understand that revivals have been attempted, but not to the point that players were experiencing anything new or genuinely anticipated going on the server. I don't mean to guarantee that a revamp would mean popularity and players, but that it would incite people to have a whimsical sense of exploration and fun for an amount of time, that would HOPEFULLY incite them to become regulars on the server. Its not just problems being fixed, its the addition of content that is both unique and diverse that would convince players new and old to actually enjoy themselves on Jailbreak. Its true, the server did start to dwindle after the resignation of REL and Splerge, but my god did they show care for the server. Its true that they did have demand, back when Jailbreak was a consistent gamemode, but their dedication to improving and feedback made them quite popular within the playerbase. In comparison, we went through quite a bit of different managers that had little to no updates besides maps, and had no indication of dealing with the problem that players were losing interest. There were little communication between staff and players that the bugs were known and to be dealt with, nor discussions. I dont mean to point fingers and to blame, it's just what happened. As time when on even, there was less and less players, and less desire to give life to a server that was clearly on the downhill. I understand that if Jailbreak made people go ''Holy shit this is fucking crazy'', and was actually above and beyond what was expected, it would still be down there on the server lists. It could be fucking legendary, but the fact remains that new players would need to sustain it to be worth leaving it as an active server. I don't mind that. I just need to know that it was attempted. It makes me laugh when I think about it, and call me a fucking mental case, but I just want to know that I'll never see people shooting at headheight and prisoners AFK frozen at cell doors ever again. I'm determined but not to the point that I'm gonna shun all naysayers out and the rest of it. I understand the rational side of having it developed as a revamp, and the disappointing facts that could be made inevitable. Thanks for the detailed post, its very much appreciated Mr Jimmy.
  10. Which is the point of revamping to give the incentive to join something new and fresh to create unique experiences. I understand the possibility that it'll be a meme for a week, and then forgotten, but I merely wish for the opportunity to say otherwise. It takes nothing out of your end to see once and for all that nobody is asking for Jailbreak (not meaning offence to you), and you yourself saw the potential revival of our TTT gamemode (even though TTT is a smarter and greater attempt at revival nevertheless). I believe that we have a shot at jumpstarting the gamemode again, I hope you can respect that I do have faith in it.
  11. Due to the fact that people are a little shy to add any comments themselves, as they might feel it is not needed or they might be judged, I have added the option of using a poll. I would deeply appreciate, if you have viewed this forum post, if you could vote. Whether you despise me or not, this is merely for the idea that Jailbreak will be could be brought from the depths, to see whether it will sink once and for all or begin another beautiful journey. I know you may think it is all for nought, that I'm just chasing after something hopeless, but I truly would appreciate a vote either way. Thank you again for your time.
  12. Hello everyone, my name is Hunterbonx. I just want to start off by apologising, late last year I did dictate that Garry's Mod, and in turn, the community of Poseidon was dying. Now I do stand by the fact that it will soon reach its point, there is potential to make greatness out of its remaining days. I was very cynical, I hadn't played Gmod in a substantial amount of time and was guided by the fact that it had very little players. However, by some odd chance, I reinstalled the game and joined our very community's DarkRP server, and found an outstanding lock of active players, literally filling up all slots, as well as major improvements since I last joined, which gave me joy to explore, interact and enjoy the potential for new activities and moments. But this is about Jailbreak. An interesting gamemode that has such potential, but the lack of its existence, and therefore playerbase, has reduced it to an ''Inactive Server''. Let me tell you, we had an excellent manager, followed by person after person, who didn't seek to bring more to the gamemode, but to watch it slowly dissipate and become the same rigmarole of boring wardens, boring gameplay, and boring interactivity. You can blame the poor hitboxes, you can blame the extremely small pointshop, there is a multitude of reasons why it slowly ceased to be. But it hurts me so. Because I know that if it was given time, if it was given dedication, that we could improve upon many aspects of this gamemode, and at least attempt for server stability. I truly do wish to give new and old players alike a Jailbreak server that gives a unique experience, one that differs from what we were used to in the way that its improved in quality and coding, but holds to its traditional roots of gameplay. I don't mean to be dramatic, but I literally can't stop thinking about it, that we could at least give it a try. I'm not saying that I'm any good at developing, hell, I got fucking scared when I was doing research, and found Splerge on the Facepunch forums giving tips to new people and helping them with understanding LUA, weren't we fucking lucky back then? But I do promise I will make a hard attempt at bringing something new and fresh to Jailbreak, not just new maps like an utter spastic. If I'm dissatisfied with my capabilities to learn gLua and/or it would take too long to suffice reason, I would happily find alternatives that I know are out there. Jailbreak does have a great potential to come back, we have a huge advantage with having an open spot as the only Australian Jailbreak Server, yet I understand that it is a game mode that doesn't see much popularity. But it can be done, with enough advertising and the quality to ensure returning players, it would have the ability to pick up and become an activity gamemode within this community once again, and I believe it would at least stand a chance, or give us the once and for all final farewell of its ability to make a comeback. I have ideas for additions and plans to fix Jailbreak, what I need from you are thoughts and opinions. I don't believe in polls. Please tell me, by answering some or all, or just voicing your opinion (Please be at least a little detailed, would be appreciated): - What do you believe caused to deterioration of Jailbreaks once thriving community? - Do you have anything that pissed you off when playing (For once, no memes please, actual like bugs or complaints) - Do you believe with proper consideration, care and dedication, could it be improved and be consistent as a gamemode? - Is there anything you'd want added to Jailbreak to convince you to play? Any addons/suggestions? Potential fixes? - Do you believe? Please keep in mind, this will take time, a little more than you'd expect, if it were to be greenlighted. I wouldnt try a little map addition here, a little warden+ here, I plan to do a total revamp, taking inspiration from both your suggestions, and other games that have a ''Jailbreak Gamemode''. I don't care if my time or money is wasted on this project, I'd just like to know we gave it an honest try and left Jailbreak as it should be, a good memory with great friends. I am extremely sorry that this is poorly formatted, I really felt like just speaking my thoughts and I apologise that it is messy. Thank you for your time.
  13. This person ''@bat'' is a complete and utter liar. She is the very miscreant that draws young, incapable gamblers such as myself into the very depths of blackjack! Like a true succubus, whispering into the ears of the soon-to-be damned. Tales of fortune. Tales of profit. Tales of riches beyond measure! She lurks in the tables, at the very back, hidden by the green material of the fabric, that hide her scaly self, ready to pounce on the curious and needy alike! The lizard, the snake, the green menace known as ''Perrin''. Do not let her sheath your eyes to the darkness of Jack's Table. The house always wins. Do not let her drag you back, for nothing awaits you but the final gamble of your very soul. Leave, flee, and never return! There is nothing here at the casino, nothing but the presence of Death and Decay. And empty Wallets.
