yea i just saw this. This is my second account i made when Jason went off of the deep end and kicked everyone from OAPA because he thought we weren't on and regular enough.  I am using this now because this post really concerns me and I have accepted an invite back to OAPA and am a little scared after reading this post. I will be honest I personally am not a fan of Lohung, haha sorry son, but he makes some good points. Jason asks us all to forgive him and that he was a jerk and everything but is selecting who is he bringing back? That seems a little, two faced to me.  I was in just before Lohung was in the group and he can be abrasiveness, loud and basically a typical American. But he was always helpful to whoever needed it, gave of his items, his time and run people through factory because most people hate the god forsaken place and was generally accepting of everyone even if they weren't of him. I have also seen him stand up for others in OAPA when Jason went on his rage kick mood and told him he should not have kick "whoever" because they were one that day or day before or whatever and Lo always did it in a respectful manner. Was never a jerk about it like some other were.  In my opinion all OAPA Vet's should be re-admitted and if people don't like certain people they can not play with them.

 

The rules clearly state that we are all adults and we should act like adults. But from what I am seeing on this issue is people being Snow-Flakes complaining about someone they don't like who has never been nothing but Loyal, honest and friendly to everyone who stepped foot in the channels.  If you don't like playing with myself, Lo,  Jason or whoever. You don't have to but who are we to shun good people from our group.  This group is founded on Mature People. But this back door politics need to go and its already day 4 of the group

I have respect for you Lo, You get on my nerves like crazy but I have seen you change from the old days and I don't think this is right

 

I have some close friend in this group and I really love playing with them and I want this group to succeed but I am posting on this secondary account just in-case Lo is right and Jason hasn't changed at all.

Takes some courage to apologise and admit fault like that, and I have a lot of respect for that. The whole @Lohung incident though if true just takes OAPA back to square one. I find Lohung quite abrasive and that's fine, I just choose not to play with him. It's simple, if people can't be grown up about not getting on with others then that defeats the whole purpose of a group for adults.

Hi Lee

Thanks for that. The Lohung incident is one 'in discussion/review' but according to the 34 happy members currently in the group that I've heard nothing negative from, I'd say we're definitely not at square one. As I said, you're welcome to take a look if you wish.

OK so where is my invite i asked for then am i in Discussion/review. too and what about all the other players you kicked out for no reason and have yet to be Invited back dude ? i dont doubt your not sincere. but as i have said thats the first thing you could have done is have an open invitation and accept Every one back. I cant be in the same Chanel as Lo-hung for more than 5 mins before i want to leave but that dosent mean i hate him or wish to exclude him from a group. We should all be bigger than that just a thought.

I am new to Tarkov and love the realism but need friends to show me the ropes and cut my teeth so to speak.

I'm also a 34 year old father of three and a first responder in my community which doesn't leave much time, but I'd love to have some to run with.

Hi guys,

i just bought Tarkov so completely new to the game.  Also pretty new to PC gaming in general.  

Im looking for some chilled folks to learn the game with as from what I can see it’s gonna be a struggle solo for a new player.

y’all would need to be patient though cos I’m pretty much starting from scratch here so need time to learn the game and get my aim in etc...

im 41yrs old.  From the UK.   Let me know if there’s room for a new guy to learn the ropes with some of you more experienced players.

thanks guys

im just looking to play some EFT with a buddy or two,  if anyone in the US is interested in casual gaming, Im in Massachusetts, & i usually get on EFT a couple hours during the afternoon, or ...work permitting, the later morning. i dont always play every day, (i have 3 kids & a life to live), but i do try to get on 7 days/week as often as possible. I get the feeling Americans aren't too popular ion this group, so i figure it would be best to just offer anyone who is interested, shoot me a friend request/invite, & we can play. 

 

Good luck with your group.

What makes you think Americans 'aren't too popular' in this group? There are many Americans..

Are you posting here to find friends in general or wanting to join the group? You applied earlier (post now deleted) and I sent you an invite.

Please clarify.

                          OAPA_New_Dawn.thumb.jpg.021cafcbc61fa76d30ee707e0b53641c.jpg


A little under two years ago I created the Older Aged Players Alliance, a player group for the older aged gamer to come and enjoy a relaxed group having fun playing Escape from Tarkov with like minded gamers of the more mature age group.
The idea was great as were the people, the admin however was not, and that admin was me. We had at the height of the alliance around 120 members who liked the idea of this dedicated group and it's relaxed atmosphere. The problem was I wanted run it very stringently, with no player being able to pop in and out on a casual basis. I wanted a group of people who were going to participate 100% or have to explain why they were not. This attitude alienated many of the group and the more they voiced their displeasure about it the harder I pushed.

There's no excuse for my attitude or imposing rules and regulations and when everybody left the group I was left with an empty channel and a very bitter pill to swallow.
My lessons have been learned and I hope that many of you reading this who were involved in OAPA back then might just see your way clear to letting me put it right.
I would like to reform the group, offer an open and warm invitation here and now to all past members and new ones alike to come back and be a part of what was the biggest group dedicated to the older aged player, and was indeed the third biggest group on the EFT forums at that time.

I can't say any more people, I've had to change my ways and I hope that the raw nature of this re-introduction will hopefully give you the incentive to come back and make OAPA great again.
For those of you who aren't familiar with OAPA, as I said we are a dedicated group catering for the more mature player and our target audience is 30+. We do have to draw the line on age somewhere I'm afraid as age is the fundamental building block of the group.

OAPA historically had members from all over the globe, from all walks. We had serving and veteran members in the armed forces and security services playing regularly who's input into tactical awareness and weapon knowledge was both highly interesting and invaluable in a game that is heavily realism based. Those people led squads out in both very tactically orientated raids and some runs out just for fun. Everybody in the group gave their knowledge and their gear freely to new members and everybody was made to feel welcome. A great bunch of people who I hope to see the likes of again.

If you would like to be part of the New Dawn of the Older Aged Players Alliance then please post your interest or PM me. We will have a global and democratic admin base within the Discord represented on both sides of the pond and across Europe, no more dictatorship I promise. Thanks for reading this re-introduction to OAPA and if you decide to join us or not, I feel happy that I've bared my soul to you (you know who you are).

i use to be apart of oapa but i left cause of all the children that got in and the fighting between people but sense things have changed i would like to join again.

Is this an open community or something closed up like a clan? Are there ranks inside?
