General Discussion / Re: What's your funniest FOnline2 story?
« Last post by Boon on January 27, 2020, 16:53 »
Not exactly funny, but I do have two stories to share.


-

Some time back NCR was allied with Talon Company.
I didn't play alongside them often, partly due to the language barrier making it difficult to coordinate actions.
And though they had some good guys, they had some others who were jerks.

One night NCR called upon to assist them with interrupting a town control, might've been 3 of us with 7 or so Talons against a team of similar numbers.
The fight begins and we quickly realise this isn't one we would win, so we begin the, uhh… tactical retreat to the exit grid.
I was one of the lucky few who made it there alive, but there was one Talon close behind me who wasn't as lucky, and we shall call him... Steve.

Unknown to me, Steve brought T4 (well a gauss rifle lols) and quickly raged at me for not giving my own life to protect him, never mind that it would have meant both our deaths anyway.

Fast-forward maybe a week or two when NCR was called upon again, but with only me around to answer the call.
This time, we faced a major event at San Francisco titled "Book Sale"... perhaps you've heard of it?
Anyway we spawn docks just like any top pk faction would, advanced to just outside tanker... and then we stop.

Only now do I realise that Talons had brought T4 - like actual stuff, gatling lasers and the like.
But they need someone to check inside tanker... whom shall they pick? One of the fine brave warriors with the big bad pew pew guns? Or that silly NCR man who was poked just for this?

….it was the latter ofcourse.
But I refused.
One person kept insisting on me checking yet I still refused.
Upon asking who was making the demand, their response was to hex me with gatling laser twice (because tesla xD).

What happened next isn't quite clear, but what I could put together from the frantic whispering and what I saw upon returning blacksuit, enemy had spawned shortly after I was killed, seemed that Talons had lost but it was a close fight.
Now I'm not saying the outcome would have been different if I was alive, only that it's a possibility.

Only afterwards did I learn my killer was 'Steve'.
Don't think he was in Talons much longer.

----------
This next one was seen only by a few, yet none seem to recollect the whole truth, or even the truth as it was once known.
It takes place entirely where hopes and dreams go to die, the swamps of Hub.

Once upon a time, there was a young soul named... well I don't remember his name, maybe Brian?
Anyway, Brian was new to this world of ours yet had his mind set on creating his own faction!

What would he call it?
Who would he ask to join it?
What was his goal for the faction?
How would he get the caps?
What does a faction do, anyway?
Is it a good thing to have?
What are caravans?
How to shovel poo poo?
Brian never knew nor cared for these things.

One day, when he was walking around the lamp post downtown telling every passer-by of the great faction he would create, an idea came to him.
And by 'idea' I mean some random guy who thought it was a good idea to fund his faction, not the entire amount but still a good chunk of it.

Suddenly Brian went from having very few caps to having many many caps.
What would he do with them all? Booze and hookers? Equipment he couldn't even use?
No, no.
He saved up those caps to eventually create his faction.


Or he saved them for like a day and *then* blew them on shit.
He ended up buying some gear and a car.
Was either a buggy or a highwayman... not that he needed either as he hardly left Hub.

Most of the caps are now gone, but suddenly something occurred to Brian.
That person who gave him all that money... who believed in him...
By giving up on his faction and wasting the caps... he would be so disappointed with him.
Brian decided he had to make this right as best he could.
So Brian did what many of you would have done.

The good ol' make-new-char-and-pretend-you've-been-robbed trick!
And so that's what he did, cry out to Hub about how his car was stolen with everything he owned in the trunk, went to world map and switched to the 'thief' (his lvl 1 alt ofcourse) to 'boast' to the public on his new 'possession'.

And he was never seen again.

Fonline 2 has been one of the biggest influences in my life when it comes to pvp gaming the work you guys are doing is above and beyond and has for years If there was 2 year seasons at this point, the game would be still booming I would still be in game myself if it wasn't for the low players in my timezone now.
We are all eager to get back into game there is nothing on the market right now that is a skill based 2d pvp game with crafting and open world, well there is but nothing that comes close to fonline2 at this point in time.

All I can say is you guys have been doing great work from adding content like the sierra caves, random events ect to banning and getting rid of burst 1-hex cheats, and even just how the whole games mechanics work in fonline2 it was genius And I just cant wait for the next release.

NCR history; Chapter II (6/6)

Knight Shift - from civilian to president. Citizen Knight Shift enrolled in NCR army ranks where he soon became an officer. Interested in republics prosperity, after disagreements between part of the officers and the president, president Lucek decided to leave him a presidents office until the next elections. Knight Shift continued Lucek's reforms and imposed the stability of the army and civilian life as he was promising. Even that he was not elected, he strengthened the government, alliances, impose stricter laws and reduced the outlaw elements in Shady Sands to a minimum which brought him support of citizens and allies. He was confirmed as president by the inner council voting. "Informal" council was made of citizens, veteran NCR army officers and ally - Midnight Riders. That support granted his term in office, even without public elections. Because of what NCR achieved under his presidency, it was decided that no public election will be needed anytime soon. He brought new constitution, managed to reform the council several times. That resulted with strengthening his position as president, which some will call a "dictatorship".
Aside from strong alliances at the start of Shift's term with Midnight Riders and Wu-Tang, that vouched security for NCR army, it was decided to enrich fire power by negotiating alliance terms with Talon Company mercenaries. No matter of their guilt for kidnapping of NCR president Glumer, NCR signed alliance with them. Many saw it more as an opportunistic move than stamp that should vouch victory on battlefronts in a long term.
As in almost any big family, different views and interests drove Wu-Tangs to break long term alliance with NCR and the rest of the groups. Midnight Riders and Talon Company stayed loyal to the republic.
That took another long period of mutual support on battlefields, until Talon Company started to cooperate with raider elements, expelled from NCR borders. As they are mercenary group, that was not a surprise, but NCR government didn't like to see this. On council meeting it was decided to break the alliance with Talon Company, but not to expel them from Shady Sands premises.
After the Enclave attack on Shady Sands alliance was terminated, but their neutrality on Shady Sands premises didn't last for long. Talon Company tried to raid the town on several occasions and were later expelled from the borders.
NCR rebuilt its town, and as certain period passed without direct danger to the capital, the government brought the topic of removing the "blacklist" on some expelled groups. It was voted on matters of Talon Company and several other groups. From that time Talon Company is again free to visit Shady Sands premises. That is vouched by special document signed by president Shift as long as Talon Company members are not breaking NCR laws on town's premises. Though they kept the hostility on premises on other locations.
It will be remembered that Shift survived the Enclave attack on Shady Sands and was the main figure of the project that rebuilt the capital.
The government decided to take a new path. With council consultation, Shift decided that NCR should keep alliances only with loyal groups that are sharing the NCR interests, on the expense of expanding and exploiting resources outside of the republic's borders. All alliances are dissolved, except alliances with Midnight Riders, Unity of Broken Hills and the few smaller, friendly-minded, supportive groups.
NCR decided to enrich its own ranks instead investing resources into alliances that will only water down long-term plans. In meantime NCR Ranger head general resigned, leaving the full authority over Rangers to the president. Ranger became a rank available only to NCR veterans. It improved army professionalism and activity of both army branches. It brought batter army cohesion which was later seen on the battlefronts.
The main figure in launching the "New California Post", NCR's newspaper.
President with longest mandate in the office.

Other notable presidents, acting presidents and regents: James Powel (missing info)

[NCR went through lots of overturns, some of the data is missing and because of that some information was not available for this edition]

(stay tuned for next chapter where you will find out more about Shady Sands civil war)

NCR history; Chapter II (5/6)

Lucek - Before the last and most interesting public elections NCR was abandoned by its leadership for a long time but everything was about to change.
Lucek, that time known as Treasure Hunters leader, won the elections by getting the great majority of the votes thanks to support from own faction, but also Midnight riders, remnants of JTS and NCR and many other wastelanders looking for change.
Lucek's victory was decisive. While his opponents, Chocola and Richard Harrison got from 0-2 votes, Lucek won it with over 40.
Rumors were saying that Lucek won the elections after Ranger general framed it by selling citizenships, and by that votes, that was later used in Lucek's favor, but there is no confirmation in facts. Further conflict between the president and Rangers general may suggest that rumors were part of some dirty political games.
The promised reforms started with him and something changed for the better in a very short period. After continuously fails of the republic, he was greatly accepted by the people.
It started with reforming NCR army by removing the dead wood from army ranks, implementing chain of command and code of conduct, then expanding ranks what was probably most fruitful step as many of new soldiers proved as steadfastly loyal to the Republic and led it to success long after Lucek's resignation.
As the main success of the presidency may be taken fact that Shady Sands laws were recreated from scratch also what's important were executed what resulted in ending a long period of bandits domination on the streets of the capital. Lucek's anti-crime policy was harsh, but resulted, in fact that town was visited often by various travelers and general NCR reputation was improved.
Aside internal reforms Lucek since day one of presidency restarted military activity outside of the capital, which was later continued on a regular basis, with indisputable heroism, but with varying luck due to insufficient command skills of the president leading army itself. Lack of experience among soldiers and loose cooperation with allies didn't help.
On the diplomatic field Luceks had also varying luck what may be perfectly described by his own words "Diplomacy is shit". His a bit isolationist vision of NCR and lack of pragmatism wasn't helpful in creating and maintaining wide alliances and became impactable power, but fair to say that during his presidency allies support in defending the capital was noticeable like never before. As additional diplomatic success worth mention initiation of unification Junktown and NCR.
Government tranquility did not last forever. Seven months of presidency, compared rarely long if to previous unstable governments, but was also long enough to turn unsolved problems into a real disaster. Disagreement between army generals and civilian representatives, the president, started to bring instability. For the sure Luceks authoritarian style of the ruling and the lack of military competences wasn't helpful in this case. Insurmountable obstacles resulted with head army officers resigning the ranks.
Lucek despite the still high overall popularity and support of part of NCR officials decided to leave his position to his general, naming Knight Shift (in that period officer in resignation, then formally nominated as Vice President) as an acting president until the next elections. By coincidence or not, practically at the same time, Lucek was infected with FEV but details of this event are unclear to this day.
His final decision was to leave the republic's borders and settle not far north from NCR, in Broken Hills, where once again supported by his old companions from Treasure Hunters and some former NCR soldiers formed the political and army role as a leader of Unity of Broken Hills. He lives there as mutant to this day, keeping the alliance with the NCR.
Because of sudden termination of his presidency part of reforms were not implemented, some mess left after him, also many citizens are angry to this day because of wasting resources on building useless rocketball arena, but fair to say that all what he did was incomparable to previous governments and for sure enough to pull out NCR from age of chaos and prepare a decent base for modern Republic.

NCR history; Chapter II (4/6)

Cleg - He became a president after the inner NCR council vote, mainly supported by NCR Ranger head general. Inauguration was followed by affairs of framed elections. Citizens were accusing NCR council for stolen votes on the expense of MRMC candidate Blackbeard. Nobody was willing to investigate those accusations, it all calmed down in a very short period and Cleg was safe in his office.
Some people of NCR can still remember his published logs. His idealism brought him to streets of Shady Sands where he was greeting every visitor and citizen personally. By that he tried to prove to civilians that Shady Sands is friendly and safe town. But, NCR army was practically non existent. A small number of NCRA patrols that stayed in ranks were without clear orders. Often NCRA town patrols were victims of suicide bombers. That caused panic among members and they became trigger happy. Because of that there was no rare sight to see town patrols shooting innocent travelers just because they looked suspicious. The town became all the opposite of what the government was trying to achieve. Without real army leadership and ability to protect its citizens Cleg's attempts resulted in failure. He abandoned his position without a word and from that time his fate is unknown.

NCR history; Chapter II (3/6)

Hubert - coming from the officer ranks, he showed again that NCR society is not full of prejudices towards mutants. Maybe because they get used to one, as Hubert was second mutant president in a row. He inherited office from Glumer without elections, by the support of the army officers. He was committed to his role, but against any progress. Known as a "Regent of NCR" his primary focus was security of Shady Sands. NCR had no alliances during that period. Hubert's presence wasn't really visible. Shady Sands guards were poorly trained, so the city was constantly the target of thieves, murderers and other unsavory kinds. What is popularly called "Hub coup" among NCR citizens happened in this period. "Hub coup" is a name for subversive activity of noncitizens who are trying to overthrow NCR government by protesting in Shady Sands both peacefully, by yelling their catchphrases, and by force, trying to cause panic by terrorist activity.
As he started to lose support of citizens, he started to lose support among army ranks as well, the same persons that installed him to position.
After a while as Regent, and seeing growing support for a new election, Hubert and all the important citizens decided to found the city council. They held a private vote for the election of a new president. Candidate Cleg was elected with almost 100% of the votes. Hubert handed him the keys to the office and took off for a long overdue vacation.
After coming back from vacation he took back role of an officer in NCR army where he is still serving as one.
