My Wooden Nickel:
I personally have been satisfied with the current events, I just feel that we are being barraged too frequently.
You came down as an affiliate of a group which members of the SRD have seen before and that they know trades people. It was the SRD's idea to do something about that. While I was not there when you literally brought a slave to our door, I don't know how you wouldn't expect that to end in bullets. This being said, had I been there I would have actually interrogated the freed slave and spoken to them before we brought the hammer down, but inevitably we would have. The SRD and The Syndicate do have morals, slave trading = No Bueno. From what I understand it was also a third party who accelerated that process, I think we could have gotten more out of that but sometimes things like that happen in RP. There is no way for eventmasters, Syndicate, or SRD to expect the UNexpected (see what i did there) so lets calm this thread down and not let emotions ruin a conversation. Im not complaining that it went to bullets, im complaining that the staff members running it seriously expected it not to.
I have no complaints on a large scale, just some small points I would like to make.
The UN decided to break a ceasefire instead of talking to us peacefully when offered a chance. It makes 0 sense in my mind for a PEACEkeeping force... come on dude.
The UN tased a compliant hostage TWICE then they shot him in the leg thus robbing him of any dignity and civility he had at the moment. The UN then threatened execution should we continue to venture into the compound. These are all direct violations of the Geneva conventions Under section 3 articles 12-14 of the third convention. To call the UN forces in the region anything less than a rogue unit at this point would be ridiculous. Perhaps an event where the UN HC denounces that unit and they die would be in order so that the UN could show up and you know, actually comply with the geneva and hughes conventions.
You literally told me "It is going to be a few hours, just go away" at the front gate. Of course we were going to open fire after that, no one trusted you, I even made sure that the SRD were ok with going through with it. \_(ツ)_/¯

Furthermore, I do have positive things to say as well:
Overall, I am very happy that we have been able to get players involved in events like these, but we just need more of a mixed bag.
I love this story line, it is amazing. The UN have been creating some very interesting drama. I think their presence has been great for giving us something to keep us on our toes. The whole town is on edge, every time a car rolls around the first thing you tend to hear is "Oh shit, is it the UN?" and that is amazing that the staff team have been able to generate a faction that actually has some weight in politics of the state of Chernarus without having to be present 24/7. Then they take Spyke which we all expected to happen, and that gave us some good RP. Even after we broke in we had some quality RP at the gate to the basement. You guys holding him hostage and yelling at us was amazing. Then, the negotiations for Spyke, tier 10. It was awesome and I know we all loved that.
I know I may not have said much positive, but believe me when I say that in the grand scope, I think the new event masters are doing great.
Don't do a complete 180 because of a few complaints. Just give us some tweaks based on feedback and just maintain a cool composure. I of all people understand what it is like to get upset when people bring up criticism on something I worked hard on, so just know that everyone in the Syndicate loves the events, just please process this feedback and actually use it because we think it could be better.
