  1. I mean.. a lot of times when borg players try to rp a situation where gimmick thery might be doing (many times being non-lethal since murderboning is not allowed) players just run up and flash cheese them instead of actually having an interaction, plus for you to be flash resistant as an antag borg you need to enable overclock which cuts battery life in half, not the best thing if your evading crew. Crew refuse to rp with borgs who are even the slightest bit iffy when they can just flash cheese them and drag them to robotics this is obviously terrible for any number of situations that could arise and limits strength to hard antag borgs only so no I dont think i am missing the point since a lot of the time its just flash, remove powercell, rebuild the borg over and over and over instead of an actually interesting situation playing out because thats usually what happens. Its not like borgs are some unkillable beast either they usually just get ganged up upon and killed if combat ever does happen anyway flash or no flash. I rather then would suggest a tool, much like a flash but for the purpose of disabling borgs like the flash is doing now, with a cooldown of say 5-7 seconds restricted to the robotocist and maybe command instead of having every garden variety flash summerly disable a borg.
  2. ... If someone makes points against why they think you shouldnt get staff, posting a bunch of discord screenshots about a discussion you had and saying theyre just salty and unfounded because you were in the opposite ends on a matter is not the way to go. As a member of staff you are going to get a lot of flak are you going to do the same in an attempt to discredit whoever criticizing you in the same manner? What if I were to disagree with you in an ahelp? Are you just going to ignore what I say because im a player and youre staff? because staff can easily just say "make a complaint if you disagree with my decision" and so doing cause a myriad of headaches due to lacking the ability to understand that just because someone disagrees with you that doesnt automatically make them wrong because you have more power.so if you are taking yourself seriously by that post in trying to discredit his concerns the way you did I dont think youll make a good member of staff im going to switch my thing from +1 to -1 moderating isint for everyone
  3. -1 Forcing people to all look the same for the sake of being easily identifiable misses the point. Sec is meant to be easily identifiable because theyre sec. In an emergency situation or in a firefight or chase they need to be. Theres no real reason other crew should be held at exactly the same standard with the obvious exception of med who are already quite distinguishable. You can see someones id from across the screen so if you really want to know what someones job is look at there id, if you want to make use of a department go there. Why exactly would you need to identify a librarian at first glance when his not at the library? Or gardener? To grow some emergency carrots in a hostage situation? This will ad nothing to anyones experience.
  4. All t takes to disable an antag borg is one flash then they get destroyed, this clearly doesnt build rp nor make it interesting for anyone and there's no real protection against it, its just really bad all round. This is made even worse by the fact that borgs are validhunted quite a lot.
  5. After seeing some of the criticism Naelyn got in the last thread and seeing her apply again so soon is pretty good. Naelyn has shown that she is willing to take criticism and improve where necessary which makes me optimistic that she will be a passionate member of staff. Naelyn and I rolled ninja together a while back and despite all the time ive spent in this game ive never really rolled ninja before. She was quick to give me great and simple advice which I still use whenever I play ninja as well as keeping my inexperience with ninja mechanics in mind in deciding what were doing while not seeming patronizing or condescending which is a mark (at least in my book but you might disagree) of an experienced player. +1
  6. Sometimes it just becomes redicolous the amount of stuff you can go through and still survive because med got too you. Recently as a sec officer I got shot like 5 or 6 times with a 9mm and I was still well enough to stand upright. on the other hand I played antag and had a hostage, despite having a revolver to the hostages head sec raided me and I executed the hostage point blank.. but the hostage didint die. Why take a hostage then or why should sec ever feel any real need to take caution when they can just throw a flashbang knowing that you wont be able to unload enough damage to be any real threat to a hostage "keeping someone in the round" isint really a good justification for being able to tank copious amounts of damage. It takes a lot out of the danger out of a game that has danger as an integral part. Why should I take mercs, raiders and traitors even the slightest bit seriously when I know for a fact that if a shoot out will happen im going to come out on top since by the time weve worked through the escalation ladder medical is already on standby ready to heal me up even if I take 7 shots from an assult rifle to the chest. We forget that antags dont exist to be defeated but to make interaction and having antags have real danger by making damage much more dangerous will liven things up quite a bit Also I agree with this too
  7. Lol off picture in the bottom left is a robot with a microphone (who use to be an officer) commentating on how badass this all is
  8. Ive seen people get quickly denied because of being unknown in the community. I dont think simply being known in another community is reason enough to go around this. -1
  9. Not really he was being actively hunted for assault warrent and all so my rp was perfect given the situation. If you define this valid hunting then the entirety of sec should get a note And as ive told you maybe 5 or 6 times in the pms I did try to talk to him, i was in to process of talking to him but he kept moving making that impossible Also saying im wrong for taking 4 seconds to call in backup to a suspect who is dangerous is clearly wrong on your part so not only is the ban "too long" as you put it it shouldnt have happened yet somehow ive already served more than half of it because i have a note i got for for a situation totally different to this one In that case you should just ban everyone in the server with a note wholesale and be done with it but that would be unfair
  10. not to be an asshole but a reminder that i am still serving this ban
