Server Maintenance


Greetings Lunatics,

As some of the players have experienced issues on the server currently the huge amounts of packet loss, we've been trying to fix the packet loss issues with the host but failed to do so. Therefore we have decided to move to a different host. The server will be hosted in France.

Thanks to the community for raising the issues regarding the server, and to Barney for being able to tackle the issues as soon as possible.

LAWLESS LAUNCHER - PUBLIC BETA
For a long time, hackers have plagued the streets of Los Santos, and brought unfair gameplay to Lawless Roleplay. We have spent countless hours creating updates to minimize the impact hackers have, and now we plan to release what I believe is the holy grail of anti-cheat. The Lawless Launcher.

In the last update, we announced an upgrade to our anti-cheat system by creating our own launcher and introduced a Verified Player system. This is unique to Lawless Roleplay and was an idea that was created from feedback by players.

The launcher is optional meaning that you do not need it to play Lawless Roleplay. However, if you do decide to use the launcher, you will be registered as a Verified Player while using it. This will give you access to verified only events and it will be a public way of telling people that you do not have any hacks...

What a fantastic year it has been at Lawless Roleplay. The year where we improved ourselves significantly and the same year we reached 237 players! In 2016, we watched people die over 6,879,657 times, 236,437 crimes committed, 8,915 players banned, 11,933 players punished, 46,306 names changed and most importantly we had fun and kicked some serious ass while doing those. This update is more aimed at those who like to kick ass but before we continue, let's have a refresh of our mission statement.

Our mission statement to you...
Lawless Roleplay is, and always, will be a community first and a game server second. We are dedicated to fostering an environment with a member-centric approach where all players have equal potential for in game success and community recognition.

Announcement Development Team

Development Team

The development team has struggled in the past year and this has crippled our ambitions and desire to provide cutting edge features. I am the sole developer and combined with my management responsibilities – I hardly find the time to develop and manage the server at the same time. Today, we want to get out of this gridlock and get the community more involved and engaged by opening the development department to the community. A community made by players, for players.

The development department is made of three sub-departments: Scripting, Mapping and Testing Teams. The development team’s role is to provide the server with the tools and functionality to enable everyone to have ultimate fun.

The scripting team’s main responsibility is to update the script with new features, bug fixes and to ensure the in-game mechanics are running...

The past few days that have gone by have been very difficult for all of us. Most of you are aware that we were attacked, multiple times, causing the server to unexpectedly shut down, many people freaked out thinking it was the end of Lawless Roleplay but I am here today to tell those people, you are wrong.

We don't give up that easily. Since the start of the attacks, I have stayed awake overnight trying to block the distributed denial of service attacks. I want you all to know that we will do whatever it costs to bring the community back online in dark times like this, even if that means we stay awake all night trying to figure this out.

So I would like to thank everyone for their patience, trust, loyalty and most importantly support. With the help of the community, we have been able to recover from countless attacks against this community. This isn’t the first time we’ve been attacked and will certainly not be the last time we will be attacked but I want you to know I am here...

You guys have done it again!

Today (Saturday 11th June 2016), we hit 216 players! This breaks our previous record of 209 players set on Saturday 21st May 2016 which preceded our previous record of 200 players on Wednesday 20th April 2016. In the space of 2 months, we have broken our player record three times and hopefully we will continue on this path.


The resistance, dedication and resilience of the community is solely behind the success of achieving this great record. Just a few days ago, we were offline for several hours and had intermittent connection problems due to denial of service attacks against our community. Yet our community stood by each other and we came back even stronger than before.

As I have always said, the...

We have changed and introduced a few new rules on the server to adapt to the current climate. With the guidance of many gang leaders and members, we are introducing two new rules back: Turf Alliance and Increased Member limit.

These rule changes will only be in effect for 14 days and we will review it as a team. We appreciate any feedback you give to us regarding this.

Clarification on Turfs
Turfs are in character, the only thing that is out of character is admin hosted events. This means that once a turf is over, you do not stop shooting your enemies. Furthermore, once the turf is over, police have the right to arrest you for any crimes you do. There is no exceptions.

Turfs & Lands
I have clarified that lands cannot be used in relation to turfs. This is because it holds an extremely unfair advantage over other players attending the turf. This has been a rule...

It's been such an amazing THIRD YEAR birthday for us. With the release of the third year storm update and the countless events held in-game and on other networks. We broke our max players online record on the Wednesday 20th April 2016 with a full server of 200 players!

This is the first time in the history of Lawless Roleplay that we have hit our maximum player count... a full server!

This is because of your contribution, loyalty and strength behind the community. You have supported us over the year above and beyond what I could imagine or want - we really appreciate it. Without your consistent feedback, guidance and loyalty - we would not be where we are today. You've always been here for us and we continue to enjoy and extend our relationship with you and hopefully create many more in this upcoming year.
