Castmates who don't want to face that their character is ultimately a villain and was showing signs of it even before they dramatically switched allegiances. If you don't want other characters being wary because they know what happens then pick a character who doesn't ultimately go for mass murder!

that the zesty threads I'm excited for get tagged twice a week, but the boring slice of life intro stuff is getting boomeranged.

When you get a new canon-mate for your LCW character, but you realize that your new cast-mate is so OOC and so bad that you're wondering if they're even aware that the canon exists beyond skimming a wiki article. (And I'm talking That Master, 'hurr insanity is my excuse for being a giant asshole' level bad.)

catch-all posts with no open starters in the body of the post or the comments, but the player says something pithy in the log text like "feel free to post a starter yourself if you wanna thread!"

it will not kill you to half-ass an open starter yourself to at least pretend you're interested in new cr.

when you find out the entitled shitstain character who tagged you is actually an entitled shitstain player when they add you on plurk and suddenly everything makes sense.

when the player is so bad or focusing so hard on surface traits that you start to wonder if you found one of those players who brags that they only read the wiki but "no one can even tell!"

Will you please stop pulling fix-all items out of hammerspace that you definitely didn't app with? I don't care enough to bother going to the mods, but come on man. How is it fun to solve every problem with your canon item of the week?

Why do people find counting their AC so hard.

Go to thread. Ctrl+f and type in your own freaking username, it will find 1 of x comments, where x is the total count.

If you're logged in: subtract 1 for your username in the header.
If it's your post: subtract 1 for your username in the post details.

There. Comment count. Done.

You specifically antagonized my character, a villainous sort who kills people in canon when they mock him, saying you wanted to make him mad. We both agreed it would be a fair fight and both would take damage. Mine is a trained warrior, yours is a gang member. You then spent the rest of the thread dodging every blow, godmodding my actions, and ignoring obvious hooks I gave you. It ended with yours walking away with a witty one liner.

Fuck. That. See if I ever do an action thread with yours ever again.

you are the reason the term mary sue exists. you drop any tags that isn't whoever she is cockhopping after making a big deal about wanting cr, circumvent game rules to play out your special snowflake plots to the point that the mods have approached you multiple times, come into plurks about other characters and game events and tried to make the conversation completely about your character, and you have slowly started turning your character into a puppet for you self-insertion mixed with basically just making her into the pb's personality. the sad thing is, there are a lot of shitty ocs out there and the idea for yours was pretty good, your app was great and you used to play her really well. you've managed to play your oc totally ooc and it would be impressive it wasn't so fucking annoying.

'anyone want [x char] or [y char] in one of their open threads?'
maybe you can look at the comm for open posts? we're not doing your work for you. you want to get involved, look.


another gripe, old but true: do your tags. this is a slow game but i have gotten month-old tags from you and you weren't even on hiatus, then you scramble for ac with the one person that will write with you. a vast majority of the game just plain won't bother tagging you anymore because of this shit.

Re: GAME PET PEEVES

(Anonymous) 2017-04-11 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
misfired before

Continuously getting tags that are one sentence of dialogue only. Or worse, getting tags that are literally THREE WORDS long. And then struggling to carry the conversation tone on my own.

I put time and effort into tags, can you do that too? Once in a while short tags is fine but continuously just makes me think you're not invested in this as much as I am. Am I wasting my time? Give me more to work off of here.

really petty but this one character constantly dominates any discussion in Plurk or anywhere there's discussion going on. your character isn't the only one being affected by the game. yeah they're getting the real shit end of the deal icly but because of that maybe let the rest of us discuss oocly how this stuff affects ourd too for a little bit. doesn't help that other people kind of feed into it while the rest of us feel like plot is designed to cater to this one player and their character. I have to admit though said player is very active and contributes a lot which is why I feel petty and bad feeling this way but it only recently started to bothe me because of how IN YOUR FACE it is both icly and oocly. Also yes I'm pretty active too but I'll admit this person has me beat.

actually I feel better having rambled about it now so that's good

Most child character players are great, but I fucking hate that subset that thinks every single thing that happens in game should cater to them too. This isn't like Eluvio wank where it actually makes sense to need an option for child characters, I mean cases where players piss and moan because they can't get involved in an event clearly meant for older characters.

If you want an example, try something like a wine tasting event. That's obviously meant for adult characters, but there's a good chance somebody will come in asking how their middle schooler can come too.

This fight thread hasn't even gotten out of the planning stages yet and I'm already having second thoughts about it. I agreed each of our characters should take damage, but last time we did one, you dodged 90% of the blows. I tried to box you in a little more this time by making sure to state the specific damage each character is going to have and having the fight end in a draw. I thought we were good. Then at the end, you drop the idea of having your character win the fight by stabbing mine to death.

............What?! I can't tell if you're the type who always has to win or if you just thought this was a valid ending in a game where characters die permanently.

Lately I've felt like every game I'm in is about meeting tag quotas and fulfilling obligations to participate in events. I remember when RP used to be fun! Now it just seems like my unpaid part-time job. I get the need for rules and organization to keep things running smoothly, but these days, it really feels like there's just too much. Maybe it's just me, but it's led to some severe burnout where I heavily consider just dropping RP games for good and just sticking to PSLs with close friends.
