  1. It's coinflippy because security is able to very easily analyze what weapon the round antagonist is using, so they pick the armor type that hard counters them. On the other hand, the armor is hard-countered by a different damage type, but the game balance shouldn't have "hard counters" in it, because it's uninteresting and doesn't lead to different outcomes everytime, the outcome is always one of two. Antagonists, on the other hand, have no such luxury, and often it isn't feasible to acquire different weapon types when the laser rifle is capable of 3-5 shot critting with an insane fire-rate
  2. "Hard-counter one damage type but be weak to everything else" is very coinflippy of a design philosophy, and besides the heavy corporate armor is reasonably competent at dealing with the majority of damage types, at the cost of slowing the wearer down. Replacing the specialized security armor with more suits of heavy corporate armor would simply be a good decision in terms of removing from the armory. Also, additional heavy corporate armor can't be bought from cargo at the moment, I believe. This should change too. If security really needs to gamer, the tactical armor is an even bigger impr
  3. I'm fairly impressed, in all honesty, and really enjoy Omi as an individual and his characters. He seems responsible enough, so I give this an emphatic +1.
  4. Oh, one more thing; >However, I do not appreciate being ripped, so to speak, by Schev on the server, on multiple occasions, to include the one that led to this ban (a fact I was not aware of until a couple days ago, as I had believed the ban was due to an in-round event). Actually, the ban was technically for an in-round event, but not for the gross AOOC comments I made. I believe I received the earlier mentioned warning for that specific faux pas. The ban was, I believe, unrelated to that incident, it was a separate case where I lost my cool for a completely different reason. Extreme
  5. Essay/editorial response alert of rantsona proportions, sorry. Arrow: I don't really know what notes you're calling into question in relation to the actual game, because I don't possess that ability to pull all of them up myself like I do for my warnings (I do not pride myself on having a photograph memory, since I don't have one, either). I have a pretty low ratio of warnings-per-year in relation to the actual game, at any rate, with the forums that ratio is ever so slightly higher. Likewise, the function of notes is as a utility to staff members and not as a utility to the player on what
  6. I have genuinely tried to get feedback, unfortunately. There seems to be quite a bit of ambivalence on this application.
  7. Looks neat, but could there be any way to make the triage HUD indicators pop a bit more?

      I literally made it to high gold on league of legends. I don't need to say anything further to disprove that statement.

      I made it to diamond. Totally felt like the least fulfilling experience in my entire life.

  9. I don't find this idea to be particularly compelling, some for the aforementioned reasons already, but I may as well risk repeating others in doing so anyway in order to cover my view on the situation. Firstly, revolvers - relative to existing options - are quite terrible self defense weapons, not to mention equally terrible for long range on top of that, alongside other primary and secondary weapons of their generation compared to those of the existing generation. During the times in which revolvers were manufactured and machined, they were effective sidearms to draw on an opponent in a pe
  10. cool cadet tips: always use the AOE effect of the handheld flash so that your fellow officers who do not wear eyeprotection also get blinded.

      another cool cadet tip: disrespect your surroundings

  11. Extra notes: I decided to put this at the top to clarify a few things. Up until fairly recently (2 weeks ago, ish), I had a decent administrative history of conduct for at least two years without a whitelist strip or administrative action in the form of a ban. My whitelist was automatically stripped as a result of a 3 day ban that was doled out, rightfully, because I lost my cool and made some rather ridiculous and unsubstantiated claims about another player. I do, however, believe that awhile my demonstrated toxicity and refusal to just cool my head for more than two seconds rightfully earned
  12. Rewatched the movie Groundhog Day today.


    I did, actually, but I also wanted to make a funny joke.

  13. My favourite IC drama was when I was playing a security cadet, and the department was chasing someone who walked out without serving a brig sentence as was initially intended. An officer gave chase, and I lagged a bit behind due to suddenly getting caught by a crowd.

    Later, when I would ask where the officer and the escapee went to, it was in cargo maintenance. Eventually my cadet caught up, and an Unathi engineer was tearing and clawing into the escapee's skull. I reported it as excessive use of force as well as the officer's failure to curb the vigilantism.

    I recall my cadet reporting that to at least two rungs in the chain of command and nobody cared, in spite of the fuss my cadet raised over it. Equal parts absurd and funny.

      good one, unathi moment and sec moment - then a command lazy moment

  14. gort, several counts of murder I approve of this PR
  15. Will be moving between today and a week. Bbl.

  16. also the guns being white is more likely to be advanced polymer rather than being tupperware plastic. i think its pretty believable in the context of IC.

      Cope harder, Soylarian.

      For legal purposes, this is a joke.

  18. its a good thing your opinion is an outlier in terms of overwhelming feedback supporting this
  19. Slugs are outright foiled by ballistic armor, whereas buckshot is normally foiled by the corporate heavy armor. Thus, with the current antag heavy armor kit (which is essentially very cheap for TC-based antagonists right now, and practically free for mercenaries), it is possible to take zero damage from buckshot and very little, residual damage from slugs.
  20. The current sprites look completely fine. It's weird to call for a reversion to an aesthetic that was in the 2010s.
