Force DOA Characters

Recommended Posts

Okay so like I think the 2.0 of USA is decent... pretty good scripts but we still have all the same people on same characters like nothing changed for all this hype, could we get rid of all the people that should be dead and just troll server because they can’t wxpand their character further.

 

these people letting server down in my opinion, the gangs should be having funerals for most of the life ending injuries they shrug off daily.

 

probs nobody agree because I’m an idiot or something because precious overplayed characters, should revert to 1.0 if same stuff happen no point all that dev work on tremolo

No one should be forced to kill their character after any scenario, but it makes a good story when someone does, which is what the server should aim for. The death of a character can have a big impact on not only its story but the stories of the characters connected to it, which doesn't really happen much nowadays. I feel people are scared of change or trying something new in a new environment, kinda sucks. 

 

In general, my idea in a goal of a character is to provide others with an immersive experience and add to each others stories. Some people may not be able to expand their character further, simply due to influence of other characters. I feel not enough common sense and understanding is used when playing, where people focus more on winning than making a good story which benefits everyone.

 

I also feel the city isn't a realistic state. Here, there is no balance for a character. How many locals have you killed just for their car? Nothing to do with your story, is it? If you decide to become a drug-lord, serial killer and gang member on a spree, the player behind this character should expect to be caught, short-lived and punished with a death penalty. There's plenty of rule limitations and lack of protocols which simply make this impossible without scripting, which is another limiting factor of expanding a character and building a story. 

 

I partly think it's a staff issue too, and that there isn't enough done to punish those who continually use mechanics like motorbikes to win and act like shitlords in-game, because it's lowest quality roleplay. Measures such as more grinding and a harsher economy are the only counter-action to this issue. This is why I think full-auto handguns are shit, and should be gone - it's just another mechanic which people use to win, win, win.

 

Overall, the concept of making a story and developing your character is brushed off all the time. It's incredibly hard to encourage players to do this in a public environment, where everyone plays to win and 'own' the streets. I've watched countless streams of shitlords on motorbikes just driving off when cops pull up to a drug call. It's simply not roleplay, not making a story, not building a character. 

No interaction.

@distritic I understand like what you are saying and I agree but i think maybe some of this could be resolve by getting rid of 1.0 characters from everyone, like new characters that can have different paths instead of meta or someone creating a character for that purpose which they play every few months for like 10 minutes so they can claim they do different stuff with their character.

 

its hard to develop character amongst the 1.0 people because they are all buddy buddy and just come for fun instead of RP... like I’d rather be forced to a script than just the stupid stuff happening, like seriously how are people like Terry and the rest still alive, I seen clip that they get stab and laugh, makes no sense to me do superpower chars should be dealt with

As long as the server is public there is not a lot you can do with encouraging/discouraging those kind of actions in my opinion. The only thing you can do is have staff do things based on their best judgement to people who are abusing the same things over and over, and not really pushing forward a story or following any kind of character traits, but if you do this it would be biased and the people it is pushed upon would claim that it is not fair. 

               

I also don't think they are saying that people need to follow a script, just saying that the current situation is just worse then that,  but they need to have a story and give as many interactions as they can. Or at least a set of characteristics, traits, and morals that are consistent and make sense for the kind of character they are playing as. Seeing a lawyer drive around car hopping and stealing cars to get around doesn't make any sense.  Or someone who is selling drugs just driving up from person to person selling weed and meth as fast as they can and as soon as they seeing a cop just zipping away on a motorcycle  giving no interactions is not fun for anyone imo, especially the cops. And doing that is fine as long as when you get caught your actually going to add something to the situation when you get caught instead of just immediately being fine after getting lit up with bullets or crashing going 130mph into a wall, and just telling the cops to book you and get it over with. 
 

I also agree with the thing where there are characters that get shot and stabbed nd they either start laughing or screaming at the person and sometimes its just them stabbing, shooting, or beating each other or some random person over like the smallest comment. I have also seen police reinforce the behavior by picking them up and be a part of the problem, and when its not somebody that the people who are doing it are friends with, I  haven even seen the cops tell them they shouldn't have said that and just ignore it. There's just a huge problem with how people act cause they know that there is no consequence and if there is its not a serious consequence cause death/life in jail cant be forced on them.

 

that was a bit of a ramble and all over the place but whatever
