Alright, alright! � Anyone who knows this username knows that I could not possibly let this topic go without injecting my (now extensive) two chyen. �Unfortunately RL stuff has been keeping me busy the past couple days, and I really wanted to sit down and say what I felt so now I have the time who goes, first on a few things other people have said.
Quote from Nemisis
We are all attached to our characters I mean, for me at least.. the game is about the struggle. �The constant, never ending struggle. �Without someone who's better then you, the only people you are struggling with are the NPCs. �And what fun is that?
That one statement basically sums up alot of how I feel on this topic. �Very well said.
Quote by Lena
You and I should probably get along better OOC than we do, given our professions. But we don't. We both bring some of our OOC attitudes to bear on our characters IC actions. Maybe we shouldn't, but we do. so when I get ticked off over your IC actions, yes, I blame your OOC attitude as well.
I had something a bit more rude to say so I'll just leave it at this: �Do you really think that his profession has anything at all to do with yours other than the fact that your government employees? �Maybe I misunderstand your job, but I know Bio's. � This is off topic tho so I'll just leave that at that.
quoted from Lena
I'm also going to be jealous of the stats that allow someone to slaughter/pickpocket/steal from a character older than them.
You really shouldn't be. �His stats are a product of the way he plays as well as yours, that's all that is. �You jealous of one of his stats, invest in yours accordingly.
quote from Lena
You can call me fluffy all you want, but I'd be interested in how many people think my character is A Helpful Nice Person Like In Cheers.
I don't think I'd go that far, and I don't even want to say this because I just know it's going to be taken to offense, but over a peroid of many years your character has gone from being far on one end of the spectrum, to far on another. �It is likely just a misperception on my part but currently it seems your characters identity is becoming muddled in the mess of multiple angles your playing at once. � I'm not necessarily saying it's bad, or good, just making an observation because you asked for one. �I always have, and hopefully will continue to enjoy RP'ing with you.
Against him, learn to deal with playstyles unlike yours. �We'll get equalibrium this way. �If we were all Bio clones, this shit would suck (in the same manner as if we were all fluffy). �Way harder than any of us make it to be currently.
While I don't entirely disagree with you, multiple facets of RP are needed to create the world in which we play, I think that the "equalibrium" is currently much more tward the fluffy side then the violent.
I think that ever since I've started playing this game, or possibly after being a year or two into it, the level of ambitious violence has been heading down, and the level of... �I'm just going to say "cheers style" rp has been on the rise. � �The absolutely, positively best RP I have on moo is when there are multiple strong players (and that doesn't necessarily mean players with uber stats) playing RED �vying for turf, marketshare, whatever -insert thing to compete for here- � �The times when a couple smaller characters team up to make a stronger force, the times when everybody wanted to kill everyone and take their piece of the action, but of course few actually did because everyone has their role, and everyone has their uses. �I could go on and on about back in the old days this that and the other thing but that won't change anything. � The struggles of RED and on and in RED are no doubt what makes this game go around. � �
I really thought I had more to say about this, and I could go on and on I guess, but all I'd probably end up doing is restating the theme that (generally speaking) Mixer violence/ambition to fuck others for personal gain/the ability to come up with good countermeasures if your the one being fucked=good � Chatting mofo's up all the time, and having your RP revolve around being a socialite with little other identity=bad.
Far as bitching ooc'ly about IC events goes, I think we all hate to see it, but we've all done it, alot of us are likely to do it again, it just comes with the territory of having large amounts of time invested in characters/plots/and this game in general, and in most situations there's going to people who come out ahead, and for that to happen there will also be people that don't. � �I'm no exception to this, and have been bitchy in the past, I'd like to say that I won't do it again, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it. � Generally speaking it makes me look like a whiny when I do it tho so I try not to. � My turn to be the one that comes out ahead will come. �
