The development of LARP in Croatia in the last 15 years has been rather sluggish. First LARP system in Croatia was Amtgard. It influenced Croatian fantasy LARP greatly - every fantasy LARP so far has been using Amtgard rules or rules derived or evolved from it (but still mostly backwards compatible).

Most LARPs used some form of "house rules" which were made to be more agreeable to the audiences. LARPs from Udruga Ognjeni Mač have gone furthest in this, with more flexible (though more complex) rule set making much more varied character types possible.

LARP development is not always simple. Some people would prefer all things - and the entire scene - to stay just the way it is or to return to the way they were. But that's never possible. People change, people stop actively LARPing, more new people always arrive and start LARP-ing. There are always new ideas. So sometimes it becomes an issue of character - whether for the single LARP group or for the entire community.
However, there's always been progress, there's always been evolution. And the future of LARP in Croatia looks very promising. There's just gonna be a lot of hard work involved.
Which reminds me. I'm off to do some hard work. Blog ya later!
