Powers/skills? A nicer way to powergame and avoid RP/legal consequences

Post by Outcast on Tue Dec 06, 2011 3:22 pm

Seriously? Is this GTA or World of Warcraft/Vampire Diaries/WoD kind of crap of a game? Really, being in Sheriffs Dept. is pointless. Out of 5 arrests/911 responds, 4 of them are committed by vampires and they use their magical bullshit to avoid roleplay and/or punishment. Why can't you just stick with scripted functions like higher jump, and fast running? Why all this magical "Mass Masturbation" type of bullshit skills? Ffs, IRL you would never use skills in public (if there were vamps, but obviously there aren't any). Why? Because every police cruiser is equipped with a police CCTV camera that is located on the dashboard, front grill or under the center mirror. You would get recorded and you would be arrested eventually. Also, there are CCTV cameras around, NPC people, non-vamp players and all. I mean, if you can use powers as a vamp to avoid roleplay and just basically powergame, then why don't you all download S0**it and airbreak around the server, cause you all have super powers. It's really pointless to be a cop on this server, cause most of the vamps just use "Ohh I cast a spell on you, mass hallucination or shit like that and you nao need to let meh go".

You removed script fights for players who liked them, now you can do something for those players in their favor, like removing this PGing skills or re-adjusting them and making stricter rules about them, and stating situations and places where they shouldn't be used. Or if they can have those powers, then bring back the script fights with no consent of the other player. Because being a cop here came to that, that all you can do is drive around and "patrol" but you can't do anything about crime. When GFS was here, atleast it was fun, even if they DMed sometimes and broke a few rules, we cops and humans had something to do.

I remember seeing a report when I was in the SD as a vampire used his powers in PUBLIC to a cop to drive him around as a cabbie, or the thing when they use it against cop when getting arrested ;/

Because of that there's no point in being in SD here...

The power are iffy because they do seem abit over powered as although there is a bp you dont know if people are lieing and secondly some of the powers are just ridiculouas becuase it pure powergame no one that isnt a vamp can do anything to counter it, you have no choice in the rp if a vamp does them all you can do is do what they say. I dont mind the ocassianal vamp making me hulisinate and see shit or perswade me to forget about why i was arresting them but sparning glesh eating crap bugs and sucking all the light out of a room so you can walk up to me and katana me is stupid i personal think the vamp powers should be not used to kill , however if they kerp it up i think im well within my right to call for npc back up, or better yet becuase of what i know about vamps icly why don't i get the national guard to quarantine the whole town, i think they need to be abot more gair when using there powers and not be a massive pile of ego.

To be honest with you. Whenever I get police on me I don't really bother using any Blood Poll ( ..aka vamp powers ).

And for me Script Fights sound more fair against police than for vampire to use one of his disciplines, aka powers.

Or you can complain about specific powers and maybe they can be banned or not used on humans.

Seriously i am tired of getting bitten by vamps.
Seriously they just use their epic strength and speed and just get away and knock down anyone on their way.This leads to the most epic PG ever and also the vampires are no more a secret on the server so if someones hunting vampires,Dont go on shouting MG MG!

I know a lot of people founds it fun and shit, but it's annoying to be able to do nothing against them, because they basically powergame. Like for instance, backup wasn't able to enter the bar because some "magical" statue of I don't know what kind of vamp shit was guarding it. What the fuck?

To be honest, these rules and powers suck, and best thing would be to get them removed, cause more and more people are getting angry cause of it and it is ruining the game for other players who are not vampires. I think we should have a vote, like for script fighting that'll decide.

Also, not everyone knows these spells and shit, and what they do. And you wonder why you have a low player base, no wonder people quit when it's allowed to DM with /me's and PG with spells -.-

Or ban anything that's overpowered and keep the interesting ones. Point of the powers and all are to make things more interesting but if others find them annoying then you can keep the interesting ones only.

Thats what i am saying.The vampires like dont act like normals and they do their powers everywhere. Infront of THE CCTV and etc.Seriously if it was real life , The cops should have started to hunt down these creatures.Also put the old rule back.Which is bite once a week cause its really annoying to get your RolePlays disturbed by Vampire Feeding. Eg.

*Cctv watching*
*Vampire knocks the man down with super strength*
*He takes him inside the alley*
*He sucks his blood*
*He gets away cause the cops cant fight vamps and the CCTVs are shit*

This is what is happening

If you dont like it leave the server, we've had enough crap about "UGH I DONT LIKE DEM POWERS". We are not getting rid of them and if you cant handle players having them then why play here when you know they wont be removed.

Except we are NOT changing them. Your making stupid topics which will lead to nothing whatsoever. They wont remove powers. You can whine all you like but their still gonna be stronger and will always beat you.

i dont' want them removed but i want the PG ones gone like the ones used oin eight fully trained swat guys to just make them drop down dead, or a swarm of bugs that just eat you and enless your in full body armour nothing you can do, not only that i very much doubt people are rping the BP whos to know if there lying? its need to be scriped really so people can actually check for one

im all up for the power which let you turn into a badger and normal things or when you use a power to help you perswade someone to mayby look the other way atleast we can rp and resist ect but when you just cast something that makes everyone suicide wheres the RP in that

Everyone on the server would complain if i called the national guard in and locked the town in quaratnine ? to be honest its something that would happen with the way these power are going people sue them anywhere with no regard to secretcy i already know about vamp mainly because they keep showing up on cctv around town or they do it right in front of my eyes. i have to keep covering for them because its what the fbi wants, soon im going to have to use my npc cops to bring the town under lock and key ( anyone who bitches about cops using npcs can shsss because these bugs and everything else are all npc)

sorry just to make clear not a rage post i just want some fairness in the power be a bit more balanced and don't play to win.

Oh look. A rage post.
What's this? My vamp complaints topic in cammy board is empty? The complaint about a player board is empty? I have received no PM's about specific problems?
Oh. Well then, looks like i won't change anything. Because they don't talk to me about it.
Lah-dee-dah then.
I'll just be over here while you're busy not talking to me about your specific complaint.

I want proof.
I want the nature of your complaint.
I want to know who's doing what.
I want to know which specific power thats been used against you you have a problem with.

Seeing as you don't handle shit properly (I.E. FUCKING TELL ME) I won't be doing a thing until YOUUUUU do.
Toodles.

Sorry, but only users granted special access can reply to posts in this forum. when i try to post there thats what it says



Consider this the complaints

one the power which makes anyone commite suicide (reason PG as fuck)
two swarm of insects spawning from your ass i guess and killing anything in sigh ( reason once again PG as fuck)

basically any power which the other person can't have a reasonable rp wiith for example if it just insta kills you it should be banned all the power like i make you forget who i am or i turn into badge fine because atleast we can use other mean and rp diffrent things
but when people just drop dead because you has your PG sucide ability it bs.

I remember when I was arresting a vampire with a Cadet, he made himself go into some 'LOLULTIMATESLEEP' and since he got no heart beat we should think he's dead and burry him or w/e. . . Great thing to avoid arrest isnt it? Why not just remove SD right away since its not useful. teehee.

I say this is exactly what the problem is. A few have it in their mind that they can't lose. Not naming anyone right now, I don't have the proof.
