Announcement Happy New Year!
[​IMG]Lawless Roleplay would like to wish everybody a Happy New Year! We would like to thank all our community members for making the past year truly one of the best. I have personally enjoyed 2017 and cannot wait to see what 2018 brings. This year we hit 246 players online at the same time.

In 2017, we watched players die over 11,441,160 times, 471,990 crimes committed, 14,592 players banned from the server, 27,649 players who got muted/ prisoned/ jailed, 32,801 namechanges and a whooping 235,569 new accounts registered. What a year it has been!

Nevertheless, while 2017 was a great year for Lawless Roleplay, it has also been a very challenging year plagued with server issues and the infamous lag. As we enter 2018, one of our primary objectives is to ensure the server is as smooth as possible.

Remember that there are still winter events, competitions till 10th January 2018 and DOUBLE XP is active right now!!

May the new year bring more rewarding moments for us to share.

Christmas. A time for you to go back home and spend time with your loved ones. For all of us, Lawless Roleplay is our home in the San Andreas Multiplayer community. So we invite everyone to come back home and enjoy the festive season with us. Let's roll out the Christmas festive lights, atmosphere, awesome events, minigames, street parties and a hell load of fun! - But before we do that, let's take a moment to refresh our memory of Lawless Roleplay's 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.

Why play here?
Lawless Roleplay was originally founded on the principle that all players should rise or decline based on the actions of the person behind the player. We feel that success should be determined by a player's actions and talents and not the whim of an administrative team. We have great code. We have the great staff. We have great players. But most importantly we have a vigilant regard for your potential.

Is this a roleplay server?
We have worked to provide many in-game tools for roleplay and it is absolutely encouraged however not required. We feel that any preferred mode of play that does not encroach on any other player’s enjoyment of the game is productive. Due to the harsh nature of game mode frequent player versus player violent interaction should be expected. However, this does not mean that players are allowed to kill other players for no reason.

Update 1.3.71 Overview

Winter Events
[​IMG]
We're really excited about spending the winter holidays with our players because of what we've got cooking in the pipelines. This is only the start of a series of events. We have a very new addition to the winter update which is a series of events by our Community Relations Team. There are great competitions and even greater giveaways. From video competitions to singing competitions, there is an easy way for you to win some awesome stuff.

You can take part in the winter events by clicking here

And that's not the end of events, we will be having some awesome events such as:
  • Double EXP Weekends on 24 - 25 December 2017, 31 December - 1 January 2017 and 7 - 8 January 2018
  • Throughout December to January, there will be special events and gifts by the Community Relations team!
  • New Year Website Update
Winter Madness!
[​IMG]
Our Winter Wonderland is now open with special minigames that let you win crazy prizes. We'd be hosting contests, giveaways, and parties here so check it out often! This year we have some special new additions to get you into the winter festivities. We have our old maze, climbing, falling crate minigames open but with the addition of a new minigame designed to drop your jaws. We also have a special winter radio genre and a radio blasting some of the best winter songs in minigames and the winter park.

From the moment you join the server, you'll notice that we're really in the festive spirit at Lawless with Christmas songs playing whilst you log in. There will be continuous snowing all over Los Santos. Additionally, our wonderful mapping department has worked together to really produce a very festive map customisation all over Los Santos. You'll find Christmas trees scattered around popular hangouts all over Los Santos. And as a very special addition, the Mayor of Los Santos has funded extra Christmas lights all over popular Los Santos places.

Santa has had a crash!
[​IMG]
Santa Claus - poor old Santa Claus. Every god damn year, he doesn't learn. This year was no different - Santa's sleigh got hit by a wasp of AK-47 bullets whilst flying over Grove Street and has crash landed in Flint County! God damn it Santa! He needs your help to deliver as many gifts as you can. And as a reward, he promises to give the top 20 helpers very special presents! What you need to do is pick up a gift from his crash site and deliver it to Los Santos. Each time you do this, you will enter the raffle. The more times you enter the raffle, the better your chances are at winning one of the top 20 presents. The raffle results will be released on the 10th January.

Prizes:
  • 1x very special prize (announced on 10th January)
  • 2x House with an interior of choice
  • 3x Ivy for a month
  • 4x Custom cars
  • 5x Custom Phone Numbers
  • 5x Custom Forum Titles - [​IMG]
* So just go in-game and type /christmashelp to get started on helping Santa!

It's Winter in Los Santos!
[​IMG]
Let it snow! Oh.. let it snow baby.. Whilst it's not a white winter this year in many places, the gods of San Andreas have blessed us with snow. The Government has also used money seized from Max Mabbitt's retired gang empire to pay for mystical lights all around Los Santos which clearly means it will be night time throughout the winter festival! Oh yeah... this is the small print that only a few people will read. There is a pink easter egg in Los Santos. Find it and send a screenshot of it to me to get Ivy for life time. Only one winner so be quick.

Maze Minigame
[​IMG]
Which door to take.. The maze minigame tests your luck and instincts to see if you can survive through the harsh and cruel maze. We have new additions to this maze to make things exciting. You can earn up to 8 winter credits by completing this minigame (more on this below).

Climbing Minigame
[​IMG]
The climbing minigame was closed down last year due to safety fears however it's now open after the Government decided to hire some builders to fix the escalators! In this minigame, you need to climb several obsticals and reach the finishing line. You can earn up to 10 winter credits by completing this minigame (more on this below).

Falling Crates Minigame
[​IMG]
The falling crates minigame is a fun and challenging way to earn your Gift Shop coins! It requires 10 friends to start a round in which peices of the floor (crates) fall down and the surviving player wins. You can earn up to 14 winter credits by completing this minigame (more on this below).

Volume 2 - October

Welcome to the second edition of the Community Newsletter.

[​IMG]

The community newsletter is a monthly post by the management team highlighting our forecast for the upcoming month as well as reflecting on the previous month.

Halloween!

We hope everyone had fun searching gifts around Los Santos, I personally think the competition was absurdly high between Jacob and Larry. Who were drilled to end up at the first place... However, we think everyone has enjoyed purchasing gifts from the halloween shop and has enjoyed participating in our special halloween events, organized by our community relations team.

Congratulations on behalf of the administrative team to all the winners! Thank you for participating!

Along with the halloween events, we have introduced a new dynamic weather system, which was suggested by the community. We're looking forward to hear your feedback about this new future.

The fun doesn't stop here! More unique events are waiting for you in November.... 'Best hots, Sangre Orgullosa 69th and Protect the Lord' are waiting for your participation!

Development Team
In October we had announced to re-open every development position. On top of that, we are happy to introduce Daniel, Tom, Andrei and Leone as our scripters. The scripters will work on current suggestions, suggested by our lunatics.

In November, we have been working very hard to review every single suggestion. Our message to you is to keep posting new suggestions.
Suggestions are being looked at and will always be taken into consideration.
Our current third party scripters are working on serveral projects which will defintely bring new exciting features to Lawless.

We're still looking for mappers, scripters and BETA testers. If you're interested in becoming one, please click here. Help us improve Lawless!

Administrative Team

[​IMG]
Previous month, we have had no admins online in several timezones. We know that you are upset about your reports not being handled. Which is why we are fastening up our recruitment process. We have recently hired new Blacklist Admins and Junior Admins and are still working on ways to fix this issue. We assure you, that by the end of November there would be no issues of your reports not being answered or ignored.

We are looking forward to the upcoming period with you!

Do not forget to contact us when you face an issue. We're always there for you to assist in any situation. Every Head Admin and above can be contacted by mail (e.g. [email protected], [email protected].)
