Deaf player(s) and LEO Factions - The existing problem

Your partner (who knows you are deaf IRL): "Shots!"

 

Then you follow your partner's lead. It's not really that dramatic.

And now imagine you're driving instead of your partner, and they have to give you chat commands on top of having to type /r. Believe it or not, we try to call shots fired out with chat rather than voice. There's generally an unspoken rule that in-game chat should be used as much as possible, and TS comes into play when you're completely overwhelmed and unable to type out the command since in-game input is required (i.e. pursuit).

Personally, I'm not too knowledgeable about LEO RP as it isn't a field that I enjoy, hence the lack of experience. However, I don't support having players with certain limitations or treated differently due to their disabilities. Hopefully, a system is introduced for those with adaptations to pursue their entertainment from this game.

No offense, but maybe that's your problem? You've got no idea what it's like to RP a LEO and what encounters, situations and challenges you face on a daily basis. Again, not trying to be rude, but don't you think you gotta educate yourself on the experiences before giving your verdict?

 

Trust me, people in the LSPD/LSSD reading this aren't happy to see the guy struggling either. Nor are the LFM. No one is being an AH here telling the guy that he can't play.

I'm not sure if anyone will recognize me in this community but I was part of LS-RP's SASD (LEO Faction) for 2.5 years and RC-RP's SASP (Also LEO Faction) for 2 years and counting. I'm DEAF since age 4

Disabilities are not chosen and we should do our best to allow you to not suffer from it even in a game. Yes it's time consuming to find solutions and do exceptions, companies IRL have the same proble

I've always been of the opinion that people should not be restricted to joining factions on a text-based roleplay server. If illegal factions must survive without VOIP communication, then there are wa

There was a system in PD but they removed it after 1 person I believe left them with a "bad taste in their mouth" so to say. They still have the system I'm unsure if they will re-implement it though.

 

This is ridiculous. This is literally how half of the server operates, from cars to factions. If a certain individual fucks something up, it'll simply get removed because "it left a bad taste in PD's mouth." Because fuck everyone else that wouldn't make the mistake and is a proper roleplayer, right? Laughable.

The fact 2 of the most premier factions on a TEXT based RP server require and allow voice is shocking.

 

Ive no issue for OOC chat, but they should not be allowed IC voice comms, at all. 
 

Every other faction in the game obeys this rule, it’s long past time PD and SD were told to stop using IC voice and there channels deleted from TS.

 

If this isn’t a catalyst for that, I don’t know what is.

How you expect a pursuit to happen then? You don't understand the fact that IRL cops are always using radios to communicate in a pursuit, to talk to a helicopter pilot, to each other, etc. There's no other solutions but to use teamspeak at this point, simply because if you start communicating in /r text chat, you'll lose the suspect. Don't suggest nonsense, please.

I want to see how would you update in pursuits, patrolling solo. 

You should RP realism and have a partner?

 

Edit:How do gangs manage it? They are made to put two people in a car. 
 

we all know there are limits on a Text based game, but we should also be using the same rules

If deaf people are allowed to roleplay normally like others in LEO, I doubt the roleplay quality of the entire faction. UNLESS there's something that help hearing ICly visually like a /do notification???? I don't think that would work but okay.

Can you stop bashing deaf people? I'm 100% sure that this guy will increase RP quality in LEO factions.

Yeah, I do imagine it. I've been in situations like that in FD, since we didn't use VOIP there. You end up trying to juggle chat, a patient, and 2/3 radio channels a lot of the time. It happens, and you do it. I don't know, I'm sure a lot of people would be happy to partner up with the OP if given the chance, and the limitations would be a great asset in the long run, to have a different, more text-centric LEO experience.

"You commented your opinion in a General Discussion section? Well your opinion is just invalid because you don't rp an LEO." C'mon bruh.

"bu-b-ub-ubut i must give directinos in a pursuit!11!!1!"

 

When I bringed the same topic that you brought up, I used the following example

 

Imagine, me, the boss of a criminal organization, have just been spotted in traffic by a PD, he knows all the crimes I've committed along the years since I'm on a wanted list and he's now onto me. Chasing me through the city. He's able to give his friends accurate directions over the voice channels, without interfering with his driving performance, meanwhile, I must call my boys IC, and type out where I am, plan a whole ambush over TEXT, plan their attack plan, etc, all over text. Rounding up to 2-3 minutes of text roleplay and slowing my vehicle down, while the PD has already given his directions and called 3 backup vehicles in 20 seconds.

 

If I had been able to use voice in that scenario, the whole conversation of me telling my members to "Go here, put your vehicles like this, grab these weapons, take these positions and wait for me" would've been just 20 seconds. Putting both me and the PD in an equal position in the chase.

 

But of course, I'm the bully for saying that the usage of voice over a heavy text based roleplay server is bad.

 

Feel free to quote me or some shit, I won't waste my time with responding to anyone. Let's stick to the original idea of the thread.
