I always associated GearRP with people who had to have unbreachable bases with dozens of storage cabinets filled to the brim with guns which they refused to let go, because they needed them for roulpley.
I've seen more then a few current red-names use it in reports as a reference, and that trend seems to date back a long time from looking through solved reports. I think it just became a colloquial to refer to people badRP'ing around gear.
Its literally been here since I started playing back in 2014. Most commonly I see it referred to as Gear RP by well intentioned or salty new players that don't quite know that a 10 second robbery falls under BadRP.
I wasn't slandering. I was stating my opinion on a thread where everyone else stated opinions, some even harsher than mine. Why am I the one getting picked on? I just think you could've PM'ed me to talk about stuff @Hofer
Aight, given she's obviously chosen not to respond,
@PhoenixLR what you are saying in the thread is not "an opinion" and hiding your claims behind that isn't gonna fly. It seriously undermines the hard work the LM team, Admins and the group leaders have put in to make this lore wipe different and a breath of fresh air. Your words are a claim, and are either true or false. There is no shrugging it off as "opinion". That kind of claim needs evidence, hell even examples of experience to show it's clearly scripted. Patterns, repeated occurrences all start to shine light on why your claim might be correct.
In this instance, what you've just said disrespects all the hard work everybody involved with the lore factions has put in and I'm not surprised people are kicking off about it. I'd be fuming too if I was in a senior position. If you want to publicly slate all the effort everybody has put in, don't complain when you get a load of public backlash.
But i will also say i don't agree at all that CLF is scripted to win, they have less numbers, less facilities, no real 'home' (Can work as both advantage and disadvantage) and they fight strictly guerilla, which.. they've been amazing at frankly.
I think it's unfair to say that they have been given any advantage in any way when they haven't because it discredits their good work and good rp they have given.
I just feel uncomfortable with pile ons for different opinions especially if they can start getting personal when they dont need to. (Hasn't got that way yet)
@Para Like i say mate i don't agree with the point of view, and i know for a fact you boys work hard and provide decent rp, it's just the fact is you've been the best faction in combat and have worked best as a team, and have done really good rp, i've seen it all, so coincidentally it seems like you have the advantage, when you don't.
I think it DOES discredit the hard work you guys have done a tad, but i don't think it was intended to be like that, but i think public pile ons can swiftly turn toxic, i get what youre saying but it could have easily been done privately and not made into a big mess without making a big funfair about it, you get what im saying?
@Para I never meant to disrespect anyone. I wholeheartedly respect all the hard work that was put into this Lore and I really enjoy it. The way it was written, etc. I love how interesting it is to follow. I did voice that I love the lorewipe in my own status update a few days ago, and I understand and realize I could've worded my post on the thread way better and elaborated more and I take fault for that.
I should've explained: I didn't say people are scripting everything. I doubt that's the case because it would take the fun away, all I was trying to say is that it seems to an outsider as if the CLF have the winning hand here and why wouldn't they? It's their country in the end and its only right to hope they get it back one day. That is what I mean when I say it's "scripted" for them to win at the end. That doesn't mean it's true, it just seems like it with how things are going in their favor.
On the other hand though, the thread was closed for a reason and then basically continued in this status update. There was no harm in DMing me instead and privately sorting it out. I'm fine with people voicing that they don't agree with me, but the way it has been done seems a little like picking on me more than anything else.
I am sorry if I offended anybody, it wasn't my intent and I will try to elaborate more on opinions in the future or simply keep them to myself.
@Scouse if you publicly pretty much shit on all the hard work loremasters/staff/loregroup have been doing and accusing them of lore scripting you cant expect to just make it go away because you aren't willing to be held responsible for those remarks. Anyway, I got other things to do, I heard The Simpsons is on right now. Later.
even after reading the explanation it’s just insulting that just because the CLF are winning (which i will add is literally ONLY due to what has happened IC and not “scripted” or assisted by the lore) means that they have been bolstered or are being helped by the lore.
i guess it’s “fuck you for trying to do something cool”
@Whitename I can't do any more than apologise which I already have, in private DM with Franny where we talked about the topic as well as on here. If anyone else feels personally offended they can feel free to DM me about it and I'll gladly apologise to them too.
The whole thing when I wrote it sounded differently in my head than what other people read it as, and that's my fault. Like I said I take the blame for it, but it was never intended to call out the LM team or people that worked on the lorewipe.
I can't rly do more than apologise.
I'll quote what I said to Franny
"I didn't really mean it the way it came out. Not scripted in the sense of there is a scripted roleplay storyline, etc.
Only in the sense of that it seems everything seems to be going in their favor because of how the group operates and with the fact that their country was essentially taken from them in the first place and made to become a russian state, so naturally you would think that the end goal of the lore would be for them to gain control over their own country again, just because it seems to be the right thing to do.
I am not saying that's the case, but things have been going in their favor a lot and to a complete outsider to all factions it seems to be taking that path, that is all I am saying"
Remember: This may be the last month you are able to play your characters/groups as you know them today. Don't let that go to waste. Don't stop playing in anticipation for the lore wipe. Wrap up your ties before it is too late
i think the LW was announced to early, i know how i want Alexei’s death to go but it’s not gonna take 30 days to wrap up. if i PK now id have to play on a throwaway. now i’m working with my crew on our new dynamic and trying to make it adaptable to any new lore. still gonna play, but just not as much until it’s time to PK
