"i'm not interested in tagging outside of my cast or building cr with anyone else"

okay so why the fuck are you in a game

lol ...the fuck? I join games specifically to tag outside my cast, since that's all I ever seem to get on memes and in PSLs. People confuse me.

to get cr with their cast, presumably.

this is why single fandom games really need to be a thing again.

Some of this does depend on the size of the cast since a really large cast can give enough to do that someone may not have much time to build CR with others even if they have interest.

Also, not all people are interested in PSLs and memes. So apping in can at times be the only way to play with castmates. I know the canons I play from are incredibly rare to see at all, and the only people actively playing are in games and don't have time for anything else. That's fine, but leaves me with the option of app to the game or don't play with castmates.

Now if it's a popular canon with tons of RPers who show up on memes, that's another story entirely.

Joined a game thinking it was basically slice of life with kooky shit happening occasionally, cos the metaplot happens once every few months. One player is coming up with tons and tons of plots leading to various horrors i.e. civil wars, doomsday devices and shit. Mostly this player is cool but god damn, this ain't what I expected when I joined and the mods dont tell them to chill so idfk.

inb4 just quit the game but I like the cr I got going outside this bs

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

this is why I'm iffy on player plots

i don't join games to be subjected to the edgelord ideas of people who aren't even mods and just happened to app in

at least if they're just a player i can avoid their characters.

are the mods behind any of these ideas though? maybe they're just smiling and nodding to keep the player happy and have zero intention of putting any of their plots into effect

it's easier to nod along and quietly turn down plots instead of straight out saying "no we're not doing this" and getting people shaking and crying over how ~blunt~ they are

"hi network. i just got transported to this strange new world and i'm looking for these people from home who i have no reason to think are here, but since they're on the taken list, i'm going to ask about them. have you seen them?"

why do people do this? if i was magically transported, or whatever the mechanic is, to a different world, my first thought wouldn't be to assume everybody i've ever known was there too, unless they were standing there with me when i got transported out.

i know people want cr with their castmates but there has to be a better way to do it that makes sense, instead of this laziness.

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

i once saw someone post this when their castmates weren't in game, and that was the entire post. it was a shame, because i wanted to tag the character, but there was literally nothing to tag there.

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

(Anonymous) 2016-08-07 10:34 pm (UTC)(link)
people who aren't you might actually be worried about people close to them. your characters aren't always aware of how, when or why they've been transported somewhere, and for all they know, they're not the only one who got dumped in this weird place.

i'm really getting sick of intros that are literally nothing but asking about castmates, ngl. if my character doesn't know said castmate then i'm shit out of luck for tagging someone i was really excited about getting cr with.

yes, my game just got an app round and i'm extra salty about this. fuck you people being closed off to castmates and their close cr from the get-go.

man i am all for ot3s/poly relationships in fic or even psls but it is really tiring when half your game is in an open relationship with each other

especially when everyone is super down with their partner not being monogamous/wouldn't even think of being jealous/is confused as to why anyone would even think that it might potentially be a problem or something to discuss

"I l- really like being with you, and I don't see why you wanting to be with others as well has to stop that from happening."

this is not a canon or a setting where polygamy or open relationships is assumed. making your character a-ok with this from the jump without the slightest misgivings or tendency towards jealousy is the absolute most boring way you could ever choose to approach this, A+

i'm not saying don't do it i'm saying that there's a reason poly relationships are hard as fuck to pull off. ego and jealousy and possessiveness are real things and your character is not above that

I'm getting really tired of all the "best" versions of the muses I play being the ones in sex games. Does apping to a sex game automatically make them better or deeper writers or something??

It shouldn't bother me but this has been really grating on me over the years.

Someone just complained that my game is cliquey and unwelcoming to newcomers. ... I remember the app cycle they apped in. Five characters from their canon apped in that same cycle. They all tagged with each other in their intro posts and ignored everyone else. They ignored non canonmate open posts. They ignored non canonmate tags. They started posting closed to canon logs.

The cliquiness you're feeling is you. We all tried multiple times.

i just got into a game that seemed pretty fast (not breakneck, but chugging along quick enough) because there were constantly plots and tons of new things in the community all the time. turns out the game seems to collectively only tag every thread they have at most three times a week and they all just keep piling on threads without previous ones going anywhere.

i'd be that old man simpson gif if my castmates weren't lovely but man i mad

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

Why do people plot stuff they don't want to play? Initiate plotting stuff they don't want to play? They're active with other characters, even with other CR with this character, but all our scenes with fairly significant CR and plot stuff get abandoned after three tags. I've asked if they're still into the plot (very gently, with easy outs) and they'll say yes and go on ignoring the thing. A lot of pretty significant stuff for my character ends up handwaved and ignored and it's really annoying. If I don't want to play with someone (and there're a million reasons why that might be, from thinking they suck to incompatible time zones), I don't plan elaborate, significant things with them.

those fun filled moments when:

you are really excited to play with someone and start developing some good cr. and then they drop off the face of the earth. okay, rl happens moving on.

find someone else you're really excited to tag with only they keep dropping your threads 3 tags in. fine, maybe we aren't meshing.

the endless 'let's do x!' crops up, only x never happens. alright, guess i should cut my losses and move on.

you begin to wonder if you are bland as fuck or trying too hard. decide to ask if there is anything you can do to improve only to be met with crickets. i don't even know what to do anymore.

RL comes first, but I didn't sign up for this ship so I could be left with two-week long spans between short and unsatisfying tags, dammit. I appreciate that an effort was made to tag faster after I brought up the issue, but it sure didn't last. Set my character free. I still love you, I just want to actually RP this character without having to make up a million excuses as to why yours isn't around. We can move to a musebox if you really like the pairing that much.
