I keep hearing people say "Roleplay is dead" and to be frank I don't feel it is. I feel the issue isn't roleplay but rather the respect for roleplay. When you roleplay people don't accept it. People try to roleplay and then don't recieve it back.

The big roleplay killer is motivation. I tried to roleplay a situation and 2 out of all the cops recipicated. We had a fun roleplay. It was good. I was later disapointed to hear from another cop that what I did "wasn't" roleplay. It was apparently a waste of time.

I feel like people try to roleplay and rather then joining in some players try and avoid recipicating. Then the players who do try to roleplay get disheartend. Just because it's not your way of roleplaying doesn't make it any less valid. If we could just respect each others roleplay situations and try to contribute then there wouldn't be any roleplay issues. I mean people constently say they wan't roleplay. It's not a hard ask to say "If you see someone roleplaying try and reflect roleplay back".

I know everyone here can be creative.
Good luck.

The mechanics of the server is systemically designed for the urgency for 'MONEY', 'KILLING' and 'POWER'. These 3 elements constitute the very rules book; staff application's don't even endorse roleplay.

The incentives for roleplay is severely outweighed by the accessibility and reward in firearms and pvp.

If you want roleplay to be distributed, don't do it just because you have to. Do it because you GENUINELY want to.

Make the bank an accessible job

Make the supermarket retailer an accessible job

Make coffee substantially relevant to gameplay

Promote businesses unassociated with violence - car repair shops should be an engaging gameplay activity

Make public transport and services(taxi and unorthodox ubers) useful by increasing risk of illegal vehicle usage
