I like smaller games but it comes with the knowledge eventually Player A will realize you're avoiding them like the plague they are.

i don't understand how protagonists/heroes warning the game about antagonists/villains is still a thing that happens in 2016.

i see so many of those enable me/castmates i want ads and plurks that request the antagonists and villains of various canons. does no one understand why people don't app them? if it's not everyone in the game just immediately sensing "something's off about this person" it's the psas. or it's the heroes needing to Win Against The Villain ad nauseam.

it's so frustrating.

weirdly the only time i ever had a player ask my permission before warning the game about my villain character was the time i played one who was such a puppy kicking openly evil madman the warning was completely unnecessary

also that was the only villain i ever played where everyone wanted him to be a trauma conveyor belt for even the most shounen of heroes

i wanted someone to kick his ass so bad

because it would be wildly fucking ooc of them to go "oh, the guy that tortures puppies for fun is here, guess i'll let everyone figure that out all on their own, though."

if you're playing a villain, you have to own up to being treated like one. deal with it.

sometimes it's ooc for a character to not warn about it; like a shitkid shounen protag is of course gonna throw a huge fit if the Big Bad of their series shows up.

but conversely, i'd be way more ok with that if the rest of the game took the yellings of a 15-17 year old HOT BLOODED dude with a grain of salt. like how many teenagers do you legitimately believe the first time they scream about someone TOTALLY being a douche or whatever? teenagers are emotional and overreactive in general so more characters should react properly when a protag like that outs a villain; it'd make for more interesting interactions on the whole.

i can't really speak for adult protags that do that, though. i think it all depends on the series and characters in general. either way, i agree the Instant Trust that goes on in games is really bad; it's almost like thinly veiled (albeit subconscious/unintentional) infomodding.

if i could app a villain into a game and be able to cause that big of a rift of distrust between a protag-type and the rest of the game, i'd be apping my villain in a heartbeat.

Well, when your villain kidnapped and tortured my hero's family directly before my hero's canon entry point, you can bet to hell my hero is going to warn people. Especially if my hero has been in the game for months now and has built up CR and your villain just joined. Maybe not the whole game, but my hero will definitely warn close CR.

I have no problem with negative CR, but I do think bringing a villain into a game where they've already caused problems in canon from the hero's prospective is kind of a dumb with cast members when I put my villains anywhere. Particularly cast members that have been in games a long enough time to build CR.

To be honest this just happened in a game I've joined; but the fun thing is, they've only warned their 'circle' of friends. My character's ended up making pals with people who know nothing of his past, so it's ended up creating a situation where it could easily fall into that old 'my gang verus your gang' scenarios.

On the opposite vein to the villains comment, I'm a little baffled by insta-trust. Characters who ought to be careful with information and feelings are magically pouring their hearts out to their friend's (non canonmate) characters for no IC reason. I guess they just wanna skip all the actual build up that should happen to establishing trust but wtf. It just feels very OOC and lazy. It sure doesn't help when you're a canon mate and have to have your character side-eye all the shenanigans.

since they seem to be a theme:

villain players who commit multiple, widely publicized murders and assaults for fun in-game really should not be surprised when other characters avoid talking to them and refuse to trust them with mod plot information/tasks. yes, they'll probably work for their own survival, but nobody's going to trust them or care. them's the breaks.

You know, I'd feel a lot more sorry for you whining about having trouble making AC if you hadn't gone on a lengthy hiatus every month for three months in a row. I'm glad one of the mods finally hit you over the head with a mallet and told you that you need to either tag out this month or drop.

people who like ic drama so much they fuck over their char's personality to cause it, so much even the non-canon-familiar can see it. some people do it with every char they play so it's super obvious

fun fact, you can get your drama fix and be ic at the same time

peeve: when a new game is opening and it sounds really good and has an actual plot/premise that looks fun to play, but the only people that app/try out the tdm are chars/canons/players that you have zero interest in playing with.

sure, i'd like to join, and i prefer to join more for premise than cast, but i'd like to not cringe at every name on the taken list or on the tdm.

two people continuously app in from the same canon specifically to ship with one another. not even as a drop-old-characters-for-new-shinies deal. they both already have two characters each in the same game, in the same situation, and it looks like they plan to just keep on adding.

What chaps my basket the most about ecats-style replies in a non-ecats game is that they offer next to nothing to respond to.

I have no idea if the other player is bored, lazy, uninspired, unimaginative, or is actively attempting to shut down our thread without being the first one to abandon it... but I don't get it when they were asking on plurk to set something up and then I wind up feeling like I'm carrying the thread solo so they can [blinks]. Like throw me a fucking bone here. I tried using short responses back because maybe matching tone or length would make things faster, but their responses got even less inspired. Why not just stop tagging me if you have to scrape up a dog's breakfast just to get a post out?

when your small game grows huge and you go from getting consistent tags and new cr on your obscure lcw to begging people to tag into your stuff because they're all busy tagging the popular canons. i'm used to doing all the footwork for cr but it sucks when even your close cr has to be reminded that your character exists.
