Mildly Irritating: Aetolia's Pet Peeves

  • Loss sucks. Perma-loss can suck even more. Death is a risk you take by playing the game. In BL it is perfectly legitimate to kill each other over these sorts of arguments.

    What is incredibly inappropriate is rolling into someone's DMs to vent your frustration with them.

    For what feels like the 10th time, I acknowledged it was inappropriate. But please, if anyone else wants to come on board to spank me for it, you'd better get in fast before the crowd finds something else to talk out both sides of their mouth about. The outrage train always rolls forth.

    I find it INCREDIBLY hard to believe that none of you have ever gotten frustrated with a situation in-game and done something impulsive. I mean, I already demonstrated that Mother Ther-Tetchta herself has thrown public fits before when the world of Aetolia didn't conform to their ideas of how every other player should act and behave.

  • If you can't see the difference in Tetchta's posts and that DM, I'm not sure there's really any point to continuing this conversation, especially given your attitude.

    Character traits/behaviors do not reflect the players OOC. (FULL STOP)

  • Putting someone on ignore for a wholly IC interaction in which one character is opposed to the actions of another character is poor sportmanship. It's literally 'I don't want my char to experience obstacles or difficulties when pushing their RP' when you can just click away the trouble of someone's char who disagrees with you.

    While I agree with you wholeheartedly, I also want to add that you cant collect reasons to kill them by putting them on ignore. :disappointed:

    I usually put folks on ignore who struggle with IC/OOC separation.

    I just don't know if you can get in trouble for referencing ignore on the forums and don't want you to get in trouble for it, im not sure how that line works regarding the function since its a referencing an interaction being stopped on an OOC level and then you indirectly referencing a person putting you on ignore. Some people can be petty and try to use that against you.

    I like having Lena around to argue with, even if we intrinsically disagree on most things lol.

    This is one of the reasons 'expanding ignore slots' gets super funny looks from me.

    I never said this was or wasn't something specifically occurring in game to my character, and even if it was, there's no names, details, or attempts to communicate.

    It's a general pet peeve about a game behavior I have seen multiple times now.

    Yeah this is a pervasive issue. Like you can ignore for whatever you want, but I think folk that are slapping the ignore button over ic conflict are, generally, in need of a big ol' scoop of self-reflection. Rings especially true if the conflict is comparatively mild or not even directed at your character. It's generally meant to be an anti-harassment tool, not a "you slightly annoyed me" tool lol

    Ignore also doesn't make you immune to IC actions which I think some folks misconstrue it as.

    Say Nipsy kills X person, X can't call that circumventing ignore. (I have seen it happen)

    I wouldn't be opposed to the command being IGNORE . That way there would be a record in case someone decides to use it as an on/off switch.

    Another pet peeve: hearing about some people metagaming and trash-talking other players using ooc communication without having a way to make it stop.

    I would say post the sources and call it out. If there isn't evidence then it is just hearsay.
    I know with the amount of sneezes I get its not IC complaining about me especially after Nipsy does something...unfortunately its something people do. (Alot of people also just like to start rumors on meta stuff)

    Ignore it and keep playing how you want to play, the amount of OOC messages I get that I am hurting someone's feelings on an OOC level is astounding.

    Either that, or email Ictinus right this instant and let him know what's going on.

    You were the herald of hardcore (you fool), are you going to be the herald of RP Blinders characters too? Start with 5 slots and UNIGNORE when you find someone you want to talk to.

  • When people use shouts in a completely vulgar and inappropriate way, going so far as to talk about ass licking and other things that shouldn't even be in this game. Makes me wish we could just get rid of shouts since people don't know how to use them.

    Disgusting.

    While I agree that there's a line that players keep crossing, you can always SHOUTSOFF and should when things make you uncomfortable. You should also issue if you feel language rules have been violated.

    If you think someone violated language rules (HELP LANGAUGERULES) it's worth issuing over. That's more or less the be-all-end-all for this.

    Kneejerk reactions.
    TeramasceRihrinAlmol
  • - Grown "adults" that behave as though their own actions can have no consequences, while touting that those who forget that should just consider whether a game like Aetolia is for them.
    - People who make ad hominem attacks against another person's character as a human being, with no qualifying statements in support
    - People who treat those around them as lesser and then act surprised when their actions have consequences such as being ignored, or outright hated
    - People who go out of their way to find reasons to complain at every possible moment when something isn't going their way
    - People who stab friends in the back and claim "Its just a game" while continuing to twist the knife
