Guest Posted October 28, 2014 Share Posted October 28, 2014 http://aurorastation.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=269 In this thread staff members discussed the issue that was brought up because of a vote that suggested adding antagonists on an extended round, which had so happened to be one of a consecutive string of extended rounds. People in OOC cried, Frances decided to call for a vote and assist when it went through, but other people got upset because it broke procedure or something. Evidently the plaintiffs in the thread were not upset because of the fact that the round was changed-up a bit, but rather because Frances added antagonists. Antagonists are defined as specialized characters that stand out from the rest of the crew (at one point or another) and attempt to disrupt the day-to-day functionality of the station. This is where events usually start being shit. We keep adding /antagonists/, not custom, unique characters that don't generally appear in voted rounds. Sometimes you get a certain someone who decides it'd be funny to punish the pubbies by spawning combat droidekas and marauders for their bad RP. Other times, you get very unique, tense situations that become remembered for days to come, and allow the possibility for pubbies to come back and enjoy the server and its RP again. The latter doesn't occur as much anymore due to the former happening more often than it should. We shouldn't discourage players from asking for custom events. Better yet, we should start asking the community for more involvement in the Event Suggestion subforum. We can start linking people to there if they're legitimately interested, admins and players can form a battle-plan for how said event and a basic walk-through of happenings, thus making fluid, fun, and challenging situations for players to figure out on their own. Basically, we should stop adding antagonists to make the round more interesting. We /should/ start adding unique situations when an extended round is in the need for some spicing up. Note that "spicing up" does not mean "escalation to code delta." Quote Link to comment
