RP Becoming Stale?

Post  Zaughi on Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:04 pm

IDK if its just me and my 200+ hours of HL2RP, but I'm starting to think roleplay is becoming stale, even with the amazing 27/30 pop we had tonight. The entire RP was just patrolling aimlessly in the plaza and being just as aimlessly on my citizen char.

I think my char Eli White's story is declining too much, the char becoming just an emotionless husk. My character Vladimir Chernikov doesn't have nearly as much development as Eli, and getting up to that point is painful as hell and I can't really figure a character direction for either of them. Even the events seem boring now. Anyone got any ideas?

Just do what you want!!!!

Today my loyalist character totally just spun out of direction and is now killing people....

Like.... Lol? But it is what happens when you RP.

SO just do what you want to do. What to help the resistance? Then do. What to make an underground railroad? Then do. What do become a loyalist? Then do. Just do what you want!

That's just it. IDK what do with the chars now. They've already done most of the things you listed. Plus the restrictions and the arguments that break out over the smallest RP, such as a detainment for a level 2 verdict, just make it a pain and almost makes me NOT want to do anything interesting or different in RP because I don't want to waste time arguing with people over doing something a little different than what normally goes on in TC.

Eli white can't go back to resistance atm because too many rogues or something, talk to diablo if you want to know more.

But anyway.
Enlisted aren't totally emotionless, and neither are DvL's. You remember bravo's DvL/CMD?
He had emotion. He basically conveys the emotion of being angry, and he's a now a CMD meaning already fully brainwashed.
He even made little comments and the way he said things on his char it was simply "You are below me, you aren't worth shit and are completely expendable."

CCA ARE NOT EMOTIONLESS PEOPLE.
I don't know why everyone seems to think this.
CCA are still people, but they aren't going to be total robots. We still have the new suits, that means we act like total douche bags to citizens, treat em badly n stuff.
That and we can still start doing two-man patrol teams again, does anyone remember that idea? [it got accepted]
You can still get RP going
I remember when I first got my 01422 I saw units giving each-other high fives along with a fancy handshake.
Then I still remember we had passive rp [an 04 got all drunk and puked on the floor]
What happened to that?
Come on you guys.
I mean
Unless your OTA, but even they have some emotion.

I know I may have left TC but the last line that OTA have emotions made me cringe.

Yes but some CCA have emotions. 06-04's will.

Barney was a CCA unit. He had emotions.

Okey... you guise bombarded this post last night, didn't yeh? Guess I have to respond to yeh all.

Meleepayne: Yes, I would like to rejoin Lambda, but Diabro sasy no to rogues because they are uncanon (even though Barney was a rogue and rogues were referenced a few times in EP1). I think the patrol teams is a good idea that would make lolwebulling and crime a bit harder. One last thing though. OTA having emotions? AHAHAHAHAHAHA no.

Atlas: Some people do the same as me and are afraid to start a new RP for fear of it getting ruined by CCA yelling "Isolate" at you (which is fine by me, but still), or getting into an argument over simple actions.

Slashraider: Emotional development for units is "uncanon".

There are some hints that OTA COULD have emotion.

In nova prospekt, breen attempts a speech threatening them and telling the units how poorly there performing, etc. They'd need some sort of emotional free thinking capability to feel bad about their failures. Not a lot of proof, but it's possible.

When you first meet the overwatch sniper exiting ravenholm, it's showing off. It shoots up plant pots and boxes for no appartent reason.
Then when you throw a grenade it it, it yells "SHIT!" which I'm sure isn't programmed in it's vocabulary.

Small hints. idk. just noob being sherlock holmes.

Experiment! They can't isolate you just for speaking to others.

Okey, I'll agree with you on the Nova Prospekt thingy. But I think he was shooting the props to draw out the zombies that were littered around on the traintracks. Zombies can't see with those headcrabs attached to their faces, I think they locate stuff by sound.

He yelled "SHIT". He has a sense of fear, danger, and urgency.

Also, yes they can isolate you for speaking to others. Happens all the time, even in groups of 2.

Gremnkai clearly you haven't left.

And you know, characters that live for long periods of time can only be fun if you are successful in a certain way. Being a Rebel leader will remain fun for a long time, but being a simple rebel may get repetitive. This is because your character has outlived the amount of time it should be there. So you completed your bucket list, and your character is boring. You want to do it all over again and have fun, but what about the story? Well, all stories have to come to an end at some point.

Idk man im just saying shit

I check on the state on the server every now and then. Sometimes I see stuff like that, that really rustle my jimmies. I'll always be on the forums. I may have left, but I still have a connection with TC.
