Sarkic Raid Cooldown Increase Suggestion - Denied

Recommended Posts

What are you suggesting? - Increase Raid Cooldown for Sarkic from 10 to somewhere around 20 minutes or more but add separate cooldown timers for both raiding the foundation and CI to ensure they aren't doing nothing to 20 minutes. 

How would this change better the server? - Overall there is a pretty big problem for Research currently and that is the high frequency of GOI raids. Research relies heavily on MTF to act as escorts for dangerous SCP testing such as an SCP 106 test. However; when a raid occurs,  MTF obviously prioritize stopping the GOI raid and the test gets halted due to no escorts; which is reasonable in an RP sense. However; 10 minutes is not enough time to get MTF escorts AND complete an SCP test that requires MTF as escorts such as SCP 610. If Sarkic were to constantly raid right at the cooldown; no research roleplay could get done leaving a branch potentially not able to rp outside of testing in LCZ and some Euclid class testing in HCZ. This does not even account for Chaos Insurgency whom also obviously raid the facility quite often. However; the discussion of CI's cooldown is more complex due to them being a whole branch with RP needs as well. I believe this addition which only affects Sarkics is a good stepping stone to create more breathing room within the Site-50 for Research RP to occur. I believe the reason we don't see that many foundation test logs is because the frequency of combative oriented RP situations such as Sarkic Raids result in little to no breathing room for RP branches such as Research to perform their RP. While this problem stems from a lot more than just Sarkic Raids; I hope this suggestion if accepted provides a little bit of breathing room to hopefully allow for more testing to occur.

Are there any disadvantages of making this change to the server? If so, explain. - Sarkics might complain about being able to raid less.

Who would this change mostly benefit? - The Research branch as it gives them more breathing room to perform on-site testing.

Sarkic rarely every get on, so this really isn't a issue.

Overall, I think there needs to be far less combat oriented situations (GOI raids/SCP breaches) right now to help RP branches actually RP. However, I doubt this stems from sarkic as they are far more rare.

I can't really see a great impact being made if this was to be implemented, and I currently don't see an issue with the raid timer as it is considering Sarkic's Activity.

It doesn't really; this is more meant to be a small step towards more guaranteed breathing room as a whole. While Sarkics don't hop on much; I feel there is a potential to cut off any breathing room for non combat oriented RP. This post is more aimed at attempting to decrease combat oriented situations; sarkics as a whole aren't that much of a problem but the fact is based on with the 10 minute raid timer; it has the potential to be a significant problem at times. It's not meant to be a great impact but rather a small one to help just a little inch towards what needs to happen to help ensure Research + Other RP Branches are able to guaranteed have time to do their RP stuff. 

TLDR; Small stepping stone towards trying to fix a larger issue

Sarkic are fairly inactive jobs to begin with so increasing their timer wouldn't do much besides make Sarkic even less of a played job.

Sarkic rarely do raid/are on and when they do it is usually for very brief periods of and I think the raid timer is fine where it is currently
