Text RP and Metagaming

Recommended Posts

Just a quick thought that popped up in my mind. How exactly do you text RPers text rp and keep up with the metagaming double mic rule?

They don't.

Some might try and emote sth like *speaks through the radio* but that is not always possible. Calling @Ron and @Conor for their POVs.

Typing IG: *Over Radio* "Let's kill these people."

Speaking In Comms: "Let's kill these people"

This was a point brought to me by @StagsviewRB who has some very good points on this topic that should be addressed tbh.

It is a massive pain in the ass having to deal with the new rule but I have a handy little macro for when I am in RP.


*Speaks quietly into her radio.*

 

I hit that followed by whatever info I want to give over discord.

In a firefight I forgo the macro and quickly type whatever I want to say. IG: "See two"  on discord: "I see two" since in a firefight you can't really be standing around typing long sentences unless you want to get shot...

If I am in a hostile situation with hostiles around me, I also forgo the macro and just type whatever I say in discord since a voice RP doesn't have to emote that they talk on their radio, they just talk.

The macro emote is just for the RP benefit of those around, in RP situations.

Don't know if i am the only one, but the mix between VOIP and text is kinda difficult sometimes, if people try to text RP i often miss it in the chat, since my concentration is no where near that.

Not a big fan of the text RP either, kinda ruins the immersion imo.
