May Update

Hey all,

It feels like only yesterday I was writing up the April update yet here we are — another month has gone by and we meet once again to celebrate our progress with a monthly update. I'll keep this one short as we have another major post planned for the middle of this month for the celebration of the 13th Anniversary of LS-RP's existence.

April, much like March was a hugely successful month for LS-RP. I'd dare to say that if I were to single it out, it'd be the most successful to date. We broke a new record of 893 concurrent players in-game — I can't really find an appropriate way to express the excitement we all felt seeing the numbers climb so high. Extraordinary spikes aside, I keep seeing over 500 players in-game every day, which is thrilling by itself.

With the demand being so high, we also needed to expand our infrastructure, something which we still have to tweak to accommodate both the traffic and the new attacks that are flying our way. Thank you for supporting the server via donating and allowing us to keep hardening and improving our infrastructure.

If there was a good time to give a shoutout to our staff team it'd probably be now. Our Testers & Admins have collectively gone above and beyond to deal with the demands of the community. The 4501 applications, 25335 helpmes and 26179 ingame reports didn't handle themselves, and while numbers & stats don't paint the whole picture, it's a good way to quantify just how extreme the month has been. Another category by itself has been the Lead Admin team of Ben, DadoJ, Toretto & Jayy who've again gone above and beyond to keep the server running during such a demanding time. Thank you for your effort and dedication everyone!

As I mentioned in my April post, we opened our tester applications to ease the workload on our existing testers and to welcome some new members into our team. We went over every single candidate with the Leadership team and decided on the following new staff members, reinstatements and promotions.

W/S Armenian Power

I'd like to announce and congratulate W/S Armenian Power on reaching official status!

W/S Armenian Power is a faction based in Vinewood & Temple that brings both mixes of organized crime & street gang roleplay, while continuing the legacy of those that came before them, with characters dating back as far as 2016. We strive to provide realistic Armenian organized crime roleplay, while also aiming to provide an Armenian community (much like the rich community in Hollywood, LA a/k/a Little Armenia) to Vinewood & Temple, with a wide variety of roleplay opportunities for all aspects of the server to involve themselves in from a second-hand car dealership, our phone repair store, community car wash, nightlife roleplay with Rasputin & a kebab takeaway business.

- Anthony_Navarra, Faction Team Council

Feedback Needed
 
Every few months, I poll the staff team to see how they feel about the state of both the team and the server. This time around, I'd like to get your opinions as well. If I could ask for 10 minutes of your time, please fill out this questionnaire to give us feedback about 2020 LS-RP and what you'd like us to prioritize: https://ls-rp.com/survey

That concludes about everything I had to say today. Thank you for playing everyone, the month of April has been a blast and the wave of new and returning players is more exciting to me every day. I'm excited to show you more of what we have to offer throughout summer, so keep your eyes posted for announcements!

Kind regards,
Martin
