LEGAL SUPPORT TEAM JANUARY UPDATE
Hello to everyone,
First of all I would like to thank the players and staff team for their effort and dedication lately. Second of all, as some of you have heard Kaasisbaas has stepped down as Legal Support Team Leader due to personal reasons and general lack of time to lead the team, with it he left us a lot on our plate, such as unanswered players requests and faction updates. The Community Management Team decided to promote me to the position and I would like to say that all requests are being answered and handled in a speedy manner. Anyone is free to send me a private message if you have any questions regarding the Faction Administration Team!
About myself, I am from Portugal and have been playing MTA RP since 2014, mostly under the legal side. I used to lead a couple factions throughout my years of roleplaying, some of the factions were RPMF Incorporated, San Andreas National Guard, Ferrari Owners Club and so on.
What will you expect from me and LST? Simple, crystal clear transparency, activity and team work. We are here to help, not to limit your roleplay.
Legal Support Team Recruitment & Roster
We are currently looking for experienced legal roleplayers to join our team therefore if you wish to apply simply send me a private message through discord or the forums with: why you wish to join, your previous legal roleplay experience and why you would be a benefit to our team. Everything that we do, we do as a team, and we wish to fill one or two spots with people who understand this concept.
Team Roster Update
Legal Support Team Activity Update
Upon receiving leadership over the team, we answered and handled around roughly 12 faction requests, some were denied but a large majority were accepted. In general, most requests were for property and vehicle funding for the current legal factions. One F3 was given and new leaders were assigned to other factions. I will elaborate throughout the announcement.
Our current goal is to organize our database and the way we handle requests as we wish to create a easier and faster way to get in touch with the players needs for their roleplay. Therefore strenghthening our bond with the community and our faction leaders. We would also like to increase the amount of announcements posted, therefore establishing more transparency and updates to the community, so the players are aware of the latest faction news.
Faction Leadership Updates:
In these past couple weeks we lost 4 faction leaders, the factions in question are: Red County Fire Department, Supreme Court of San Andreas, Red County Government and Express Global Logistics. Some leaders left due to lack of time or personal reasons, others left due to discontent.
Two faction leaders left due to much needed power restrictions within government factions, in this case, the Supreme Court of San Andreas had three Distric Attorney Investigators with the goal of somehow patrolling the county and assisting with warrants. However, it was my decision to restrict that specific rank to two DAI's instead of three due to the lack of roleplay available for them, not to mention the playerbase doesn't fully support it. That caused the leader which I will not mention, to leave all server factions alongside with the Red County's Fire Department leader which was in one of those ranks from SCoSA, thus leaving us and their team without a leader.
Regarding the Red County Government, Kaasisbaas has been inactive lately and due to it he was removed from the position, leaving @Najkwiin as the acting County Commissioner until elections are in place. More information about that will come soon.
Just recently the leader of Express Global Logistics resigned from the position due to lack of motivation to roleplay, among other personal reasons. The new leader is @cookin.
The new faction leader for the Red County Fire Department is @Shaderz along with @Deuce.
Bank of San Andreas received a new leader as well, @CherAmi.
We are still currently looking for a capable leader for the Supreme Court of San Andreas, if you got the legal roleplay experience don't hesitate to contact me.
We have just recently issued The JW Corporation a small F3 system to help them keep their faction, properties and staff organized. This faction is based around a handfull of small business.
Unofficial, Semi-Official & Official Factions System
A newly made faction with a small amount of members, this status is mostly attributed to those factions who require an F3 system in order to control their finances, members and their wages. Usually an F3 is given when requested if the faction has shown activity. These issued F3's can hold up to 5 interior slots and 5 vehicle slots, depending on the faction the slot capacity may increase. However, unofficial factions lack the support for free custom duty skins and custom interiors.
A faction with some miles and activity to it along with a larger member base, this status is attributed to a trusted faction which has shown to be active by creating jobs and roleplay opportunities. The perks of this status is the increased amount of support, such as being able to implement free duty skins and custom interiors not to mention the support from the Legal Team in regards to funding vehicles, properties and items. These factions receive a raise in slots up to 15 interiors and 20 vehicle slots, with the exception of dealership factions.
The final status for a faction, given to those who truly shown to be active within the server and provided continuous quality roleplay to the community. This status has the same perks as a Semi-Official faction, with the exception of an increase in interior slots (25) and vehicle slots (35). Also, a sub-forum is awarded to the faction so that the leader can better manage it.
Monthly Faction Updates
We are going to be implementing a new monthly system in the forums which allows faction leaders to provide the Legal Support Team with a monthly update on their activity, finances, requests and much more. This will help us keep track of every faction as well as help faction leaders prove their activity. @FAILCAKEZ is currently working on the small form.
Current & New Faction Leaders
This section is reserved for leaders to talk about their activity and plans. It serves as a way for players to understand what is going on with the current state of the legal factions and their status.
Red County Government (Official)
With the departure of the former leader, a new one has stepped up, @Najkwiin will be the acting County Commissioner until we find someone suitable for the position through the upcoming elections. The future elections will give everyone a chance to vote for their favourite party, whoever is interested may start working and planning their campaign.
The current leader has plans in to make the department of licensing more active by implementing event and business licenses. He is looking for experienced roleplayers to help him run the departments.
San Andreas State Police (Official)
After the resignation from @Samuel, it was decided that @Morris7878 would be the most experienced person to lead the faction, he already placed in plans to shorten the ranks and structure of the faction to fit our playerbase, thus having one Captain and one Lieutenant who supervises the supervisory staff and their units. The leader also intends on increasing the roleplay standards for the faction.
Red County Fire Department (Official)
@Shaderz was promoted to Fire Chief and @Deuce to Assistant Chief, both these players have experience in leading a fire department from other servers, therefore they were the best fit for position.
Supreme Court of San Andreas (Official)
With the resignation of the previous leader, we are dismissing the faction until we find someone capable of setting it up. Currently there is no need for such faction to exist considering our player base. Regarding warrants, they will be reviewed by myself and other legal experienced leaders since there is no District Attorney present or Chief Justice. If you have what it takes feel free to send me a PM with your roleplay background and faction plans.
Bank of San Andreas (Official)
We have a new leader after the previous one got removed for the lack of activity. @CherAmi is now leading this faction and has plenty of plans for it, such as establishing loans for players, getting a cash-in-transit section of the Bank running as well as getting partnerships in order to aid small business.

As some of you might have heard the Community Management Team is planning a server event and myself and the current faction team leaders are preparing and organizing for it in order to ensure the best roleplay experience for all parties. The event will be all inclusive, meaning all factions will have a job or something to do, thus ensuring that anyone can partake.
