Yes! Was awesome to get to run into Eddie @Eddie one last time was my last night I could play before LoreWipe away for surgery now and recovery takes weeks... Hope to meet again on new Characters next time I won't play a kid.
@IvarTheNarrator Thank you It is fun!
@HayLeigh more sugar for the end of days lol doing that taking care thing. She is still alive.
@Lindse looked like you just tried to get away first. Did we seem scary? Thanks for the RP
I WOULD LIKE TO CALL EVERYONE IN WITH THEIR FULL POV AND ANY VIDEO EVIDENCE THEY MAY HAVE!
It is just outrages that some of this can't be found as a recording, and requesting @Eddie to please explain your NVL suicide? We all understand the emotional pressure of having killed someone, everyone please make sure to go for your regular scheduled psychiatrist after the shootings. To enhance everyone's enjoyment I really hope @Stagsview has his stream recording somewhere for future reference Thank you for the event and really hope to join one in the future!
A female voice says: "Hi Depressed Cowboy from Redwood Radio.
I knew someone that used to be with you a while ago. Would it be possible to meet you somewhere? Or reach you on a more private frequency?"
As someone that used to stream herself in the past I know about the problem of metagaming. I can say I was lucky enough that people seemed to have mainly metagamed me to a positive outcome. For example I directly asked for something I would wish for to happen in game (back then I played on public servers) and I would ask for something unusual specific and not long after I run into that because someone would set it up.
I was also lucky enough to have loads of coincidences happen to me when I wasn't streaming and they couldn't have possibly known. So I know how it feels when you think someone must have meta-gamed this and it just feels fishy. I can gladly say when things felt like it must be meta it was pure. Like I logged in and constantly ran into the same person out in the middle of nowhere, on different ends of the map. On different servers. Back then no tools like now where you could check position logs. If I had been streaming or them, both of us would have been sure to claim the other must have been using meta.
The only times I am scared in RP is to run too often and strange looking, into streamers. I have been there and know how it looks and feels... I am glad as hell when I accidentally run into them and find out they were not streaming after XD example @Aron73 when I ran into Peter he wasn't streaming. So I can be sure they don't feel fishy about the meeting. Sad as it is as a streamer, its a lot on your mind that they might use information you give.
Like for example I ran into @AlkisLR a few times in strange places and it was fun but say if he had been streaming or me... maybe we would have thought oof this is a strange place to coincidentally run into each other.
Even a stream stalker that was found guilty, could after truly by accident run into you XD
The main meta I experienced is people treating a character differently because of who plays that character because of who they are on the forums.
I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to advertise that people are watching for people to change direction because a streamer just came on and showed their location. It might be enough to scare them of from doing it without that you actually have to have someone do it.
But I would be REALLY careful of accusing anyone of Meta on stashes or anything really. I placed stashes in off locations that were found within an hour.. I sit in off locations sometimes for hours and find people... And sometimes you run into the same people because you just think a like and have similar ideas.... example a LOT of people that suddenly decide to hide from a larger group pick the Khelm summer camp or Belaya Polana or Msta or any summer camp as a "hiding" spot.... My own group did XD and loads before too... Honestly we make it easy for the other side to find us. lol Example I guessed my own groups hiding location, before they even told me where it was, before and walked there.. no need for a stream XD so other people can do that too... Chernarus isn't that big.
If for some reason people are needed to do this job of checking I would totally volunteer cause I know I would not lightly accuse someone of it, if this is done I would want people to look at all the possibilities from a guilty and innocent perspective. Unless there is really plenty of evidence including even them admitting to guild or multiple others independent to each other confirming it. Not just someone mad at them lol
I mean if death row was a thing would you not rather have a guilty party stay alive, than falsely have an innocent get the needle? Yeah I might be too soft but I love believing in peoples innocence unless the evidence is over-rolling them from multiple sides.
Example a while ago I had my character pretend to be on something they could not possibly be on through normal means... I didn't tell anyone but one person that I knew would not share this information and no one would ask them if they knew about it. I knew I would probably get accused of power gaming so I made sure to have video proof and the person that knew of the plan from the beginning for the day it comes to bite me. Sadly I had to share it cause the trust in this community is not that high understandably. I try and keep proof of everything I can in case it could look fishy to anyone later and I might have to proof my innocence, its an exhausting bit of work and sad that its needed.
I love the community and its normal to be suspicious. Lets just try not to get it out of hand. I like to make a bet at this point. Since staff let the community know they are checking on people that die if they returned to their bodies with position logs even if they are not being reported and no one has seen them do it in game, I would bet less people do it now then before since they know they might get caught for it? Its a scare tactic and on occasion someone gets busted, honestly got to feel bad for the poor soul that gets made an example out of for everyone else to be scared but it works for a while at least till people forget about it again.
I really enjoy being so much in my character and to feel as she would... so yes a LOT of sad things happen in the apocalypse that I always cry alongside my character. Being so immersed that you just have to cry is the best feeling in RP. I am so glad I got to experience that and feel sorry for anyone that didn't yet, hope you get your chance!
I wish to thank everyone that answers this always had a feeling more people enjoyed taking hostages more then being taken hostage. I enjoy being a hostage, even far more if its done with a good reason and it feels naturally that you would be taken as hostage in that situation. But I am always scared if I were to take someone else hostage that others might rather not get taken at all and that I would just be ruining their day XD
Thank you everyone that is sharing their thoughts its much appreciated its a route I would like to explore more if I knew people had fun with it.
