oo7im has apologised to fellow member iscareurparrot, after an accidental weapon discharge resulted in the player's unexpected death.
The pair had just finished a routine sailing adventure and were leaving the marina when oo7im's pistol accidentally discharged. The founder described the event as a 'freak accident', and said he was just attempting to reverse his car when he accidentally pressed the 'shoulder button'.
Accidental discharges are fairly common, and have led to the regulation of other 'one button' kill weapons in lobbies, however the chances of landing a perfect head shot with a pistol are much lower. As per PCEO protocol, oo7im recorded the clip below and submitted to the community reps as evidence.
When asked to comment, oo7im said:
"I usually discard my pistol as soon as I load into the lobby, but I forgot today as I went straight to the office"
PCEO's founder has previously been known to spread an anti-gun message, proudly proclaiming that he discards his only weapon when loading into a session. The fact that the weapon remained in his possession for the duration of the session has led conspiracy theorists to claim the act could've been pre-meditated.
oo7im has accepted full responsibility for Parrot's death, and said this of the rumours:
To suggest that this freak occurrence was pre-meditated is nothing more than wild conspiracy theory. Those guys probably believe in the PCEO illuminati as well.... It's offensive and grotesque!
To help with the investigation, oo7im volunteered to submit footage of his time with parrot in the run up to the killing. No motive could be found, and the role of the other sea-going players in the video is still unknown.
oo7im and the rest of the development team are still hard at work preparing www.peacefulgamers.com for it's official launch announcement.
Work is currently focused on streamlining the 'back end' application system, as well as finalising plans for an exciting in-game launch event for [PCEO] members.
Whilst work on the project continues, the wider [PCEO] team is still doing a great job providing security for lobbies and ensuring things run smoothly.
A day of celebration and leisure turned violent on Friday, when a gathering of peaceful citizens with their blimps and other aircraft was met with police brutality in yet another such incident to plague our fair city.
When PCEO News arrived on the scene, it was a majestic spectacle: an air show on Del Perro beach, with a rainbow of blimps and specialty aircraft, and citizens gathered in peaceful enjoyment. It didn't take long, however, for the many celebratory flares filling the sky to create panic among our generally calm and helpful police force.
Before long, terrified citizens were taking cover behind our very own news van in a bitter struggle to survive an overreaction based on simple misunderstanding gone tragically awry. Fire filled the sky as blimps exploded all around, and reporters were fortunate to escape to a safe distance with a handful of survivors as a war between civil servants and taxpayers fed up with injustice turned Del Perro beach into a bloodbath.
Emergency services have not yet released a count of casualties among the police, and the body count of simple pedestrians is still unknown. However we are pleased to report that all peaceful citizens have already recovered from their injuries and returned to their lives as productive members of society.
Damages in this incident are estimated to have been hundreds of millions of hard earned taxpayer dollars.
PCEO August Justice Update
All disciplinary action decisions are reached by council vote. Evidence from BOTH sides is considered and Video is required. ALWAYS RECORD it when anything happens, even if it is
your fault! Get on the record.
After a prolonged dispute between R* and PCEO's founder oo7im, it has
emerged that R* will step down from their initial position and has agreed to pay a
large compensation sum to the tune of $687,655 for the founder's lost Sentinel.
The founder admitted he was responsible for the mistake which led to his
$650,000+ sentinel being replaced by a stolen camper van, however he claimed
the mechanism through which he 'permanently' lost the vehicle was a 'flaw in the
game, as opposed to a welcome feature'.
oo7im is said to be very happy with the ruling, and had this to say:
"I was going to sell the Sentinel anyway to make money for the new DLC. The
R* elevated the case to 'support tier 2' in order to approve the payment, and
insisted that this was 'one time accommodation'.
PCEO's founder oo7im, found himself walking home last night after a recent camper van acquisition resulted in a mix up at R* HQ.
PCEO News followed up the case, and Rockstar support had this to say:
Hello , Thank you for writing back to us. We understand your issue regarding replaced vehicle "Ubermacht Sentinel Classic", however, we are unable to compensate for your loss as you have replaced it with another vehicle "BF Surfer". We apologize for this inconvenience in advance. Best Regards. Rockstar Support
A hefty dispute followed, with R* later clarifying further:
To avoid this, we would recommend you only attempt to place a vehicle in a Garage that has an open slot. If you must replace a vehicle, carefully select which one you wish to replace, as it will not be moved to another Garage and will be permanently lost.
Inside sources revealed that oo7im was not satisfied with this resolution, and that further negotiations are proving difficult at this time.
The PCEO news team was in the right place at the right time last week; catching a group of smugglers as they delivered $300,000 worth of illegal animal parts to a drop off.
Reporters oo7im and Audisportquattro arrived on the scene just as the last delivery was made. The smugglers made the drop using a fleet of sophisticated off road vehicles, which was a big giveaway to the News team on duty.
The illicit cargo was later seized by police.
