I'm thinking I should go back to playing obscure LCWs instead of obscure castmates. Only getting brought up as part of a group or cast line up but getting palpable disinterest in-game from the same people is a really sucky feeling, compared to just the latter on its own.

I've always had more fun as a lcw than as part of a cast.

not an obscure LCW but I love playing a LCW and every app round I hope my canon is still in hibernation and no one decides to app any canonmates

Being a LCW in general has been a blessing. No shitty castmates to deal with + focusing on gaining as many cross-canon CR as possible = a golden opportunity.

Almost every time I've been in a cast the interaction with them has sucked.

Lucky me, I've just played with people outside of my cast and had great fun.

OT, but since all the LCWs are chiming in here:

i've always been a LCW and really enjoy it, but i realized recently that the cross-canon bonds my character forms seem much more deep, intense and fleshed-out than the relationships he has in canon. maybe it's just because his canon is a short, light-hearted series that focuses more on action than character relationships, but at the close of one game it felt like he had more reason to stick with his new game friends than return home because he'd been through so much with them.

has anyone else ever felt like this with their LCW characters?

The last time I was in a cast, it was a ridiculously big cast. My character was also the type who would have kept in touch with everyone, by which I mean I tried to have him tag all their posts and the like. Burned me out really fast, and the cast just kept growing...

I ended up not being able to tag many new people and eventually I dropped the game. Now I am a LCW in a totally different game, playing from a much more obscure canon. While I wouldn't mind one or two of my character's canonmates showing up, I'm just as happy being alone.

idk why but i really, really hate the "x character is gone" announcement posts. i get the logic behind them if a close cr or castmate does it and wants to let other castmates/close cr know. yet no matter how they're done they always sound so forced and out of character to me.

really sucks when you reach out to someone for cr and it's radio silence. even worse feel is when someone reached out to you, and then even after you give options they radio silence.

im more forgiving when it comes to memes but now i get what people mean when they say we talk about rping more than actually doing it.

I'm really freaking tired of seeing you play in this not-a-sex-game just so you can basically play fuck bingo with your very large cast. It wouldn't even bother me that your character is rather OOCly banging their way through everyone if you ever bothered to tag out of your cast or even bother to talk to anyone outside of it on Plurk. I haven't seen cast favoritism this bad in years.

kind of bummed that every time a murdergame with a different age cap comes around, it immediately gets people complaining and the age cap gets raised.

i don't think every single murder game needs to be full of young teenagers having a battle royale, but the variety would be nice.

I don't mind getting tagged by characters' pets. Hell, I myself play a character that has an intelligent pet and sometimes I'll put up log prompts for the pet, or tag out to people with that pet if they've threaded with them before. You can still have a fun thread using a pet character if both parties are interested and you're putting effort into your tags.

What I do mind is when I get tagged by a pet character and it's tag after tag of nothing. I'm sure you think your magical flying cat companion is very cute, but you still have to give me something to work with besides [purrs affectionately and leans into character's hand.] At least if your character was there I'd be forming some kind of CR or IC opinion of yours, but no, all I get is a dumb animal that my character will forget about as soon as the thread ends. Why are you wasting my time with this shit? I didn't sign up to be pillowqueened by a damn cat.

i don't care for oldbie toplevels on intros unless it's plot-related. double points if that's their only presence on the log. tag out to newbies instead of making them come bother you as their welcome into the game, please.

when the game you're in ejects a player for bad behavior and it's for something that's been done behind-the-scenes in private plurks, and the ejected player in question is anonymously wanking themselves into a froth about how terrible the game/mods are

sitting on my hands and not trashing this person for being so petty and rude has never been more difficult

tfw you finally get up the courage to plurk about how you feel like your or your character isn't a good fit for the game and every single person who comes in to shower reassurance on you and offer to play with you already owes you a tag.

If you can't handle your game commitments and life but you actually have someone put in a reserve FOR you so you can play in murdering fun times and drop your game, maybe you shouldn't be in a fucking game where some rely on tags for ac. So never tagging you again.
