A lot of the players seem to rollplay, but they do it on and off, and do it in the out of character chat as well. Therefore, you don't know when they speak as their character, or as the real person behind.
An other thing to have in mind: When using the in character chat, the text is being broken if you are too far away from the player. It took a while for me to notice that, and I thought it was spam.
I'm up for more roll playing, but I think we need to focus on getting more people to understand what roll playing really is about, and the difference between OUC and INC.
I seemed to have trouble distinguishing when people were roleplaying or not too-- that was the primary reason I wanted to start this thread. In regard to conversations being broken up the further you are away from them... I had no idea, haha. As I said, i'm relatively new to the game, and have only been playing it actively for a bout two or three days, so i'm still learning a ton of stuff.
In regard to informing people what roleplaying itself is actually about, i'm totally on board. I might actually write up a little something as a sort of explanation as to what it is, and why people do it now that i'm thinking about it.
I don't have any interest in roleplaying while playing audiogames. I had really bad experiences when I tried roleplaying muds ages ago, and it's permenantly given me a sour taste.
That's a real shame, honestly. I've had a lot of really pleasant experience roleplaying through other means. I've had a few negative experiences myself, but overall it's been posetive and fun. I totally understand how a particularly negative experience can leave a bad taste in your mouth though.
It's not that people don't role play, cause everything you say via radio, tts or voice chat is concidered as role play. But if your message contain something not related to the game's time line using any of those items, there is a chance you could get warned about it and probably get your radios taken out if you keep doing so. But the problem is that the current stw storie is just old and not detailed, so people can hardly role play basing on it.
It might be a little old, and it might be lacking on the details, but for the purposes of having fun with it all, I'm sure that i'm not the only one who could whip up some fan-fiction of sorts to give a better background to what happened, and what thrust our respective characters into the situation we're in. I'm a writer in my spare time, and absolutely love doing things of that sort. Obviously it wouldn't be canonical, but it's a thought. I've spent a great deal of time roleplaying, and am definitely no stranger to world-building and lorecraft.
Obviously I wouldn't want to be doing it if it would get me in trouble, though. That's not my intention at all. I'm merely a seeker of fun.
i'd like to join you. most of stw players are stupids. when you ask a question they are starting to laugh at you because they think they knew everything from the time when they borned. if you dont have trash players on your team, i'll join you guys
Well, i've certainly had the exact opposite experience. Every other player i've necountered in the chat has been nothing but friendly, respectful, and helpful to their best ability.
