Your View - Clipping the Wings of Birds

just don't make it cancerous to gather a group of people for non-combat purposes

Well lads looks like the old mailbox stuff I was shilling back in early Bramblebury is gonna come in handy, now ain't it? Hopefully not having birds for everything will revive the roleplay of getting stuff in the mail. As long as I can still use the excuse of having a noticeboard to post RP events on I'm happy.

Edit: also this might just shove metagaming back onto discord instead of in-game messages so maybe an aviary plugin would be a decent replacement

if this was something that was done very early in the server's creation then i could see it and courier RP actually working, but tbh people are just gonna result to discord. i have no opinion on this matter and would not like nor dislike the removal of birds.

As long as I don't get banned for logging in, doing "/friend list", seeing my buddy online and sending him a "/msg yo dude were u at wanna rp", then I'm all for this.

This is possible but we'd need an actual mechanic to replace it beyond just "get someone to run all the way there". There should be a mechanic for rallies to be drawn from other cities, and there should be a way for people to organize rp with each other (which is otherwise impossible without metagaming).

there cannot be a solution where no bad thing happens imo
the current system of birds, in my opinion, are especially flawed however its good because its convenient to everyone and doesnt cost anything (sending an irp missive shouldnt be exclusive to a nation's aviary or should cost anything nor should it have a limit - this idea is exactly the type of thing vortex brought on that stagnated rp for so long)
i think entirely relying on a plugin would be bad too bc if the plugin breaks there'd be no way to send birds i think? but a plugin with controlled limitations would be a lot better than the system would be bad too so i think a good middle ground needs to be found
but really no matter what decision or solution administration comes up with there will always be metagamers

get rid of /bird rp, have people only be able to send letters where there's a courier system or aviary available in rp - and those letters can only be sent to someone's residence

 

i hate 5g homing pigeons

This is silly if you ban birds for everything. But I do agree with adding rules around birds when you are in combat

 

it would seriously ruin rp and cause more meta if you banned birds for everything because that’s how people communicate for smaller meetings!

It’s a touchy subject but no. Meta will happen no matter what whether or not they are rallied on LOTC or discord. Don’t strain the staff team further by ensuring every message is non-bird. Lol

Even if you ban birds I am still going to use birds when I wish to send letters to my friends about meeting up etc irp. <img src=">

yeah i think it's fine if people use birds or couriers when not in combat. for combat, it makes sense to disallow it though

Ooooo boy that's a bold move my guy, tbh metagamers gonna metagame and punishing those that don't do it ain't gonna solve the issue, it's just gonna make people irritated and jump the gun everytime someone stumbles into rp.

If you are so worried about someone meta rallying by sending one message to one person, then use the ample time of three emotes to kill the bird. A good solution is to allow for a bird killing emote to blast that sucker out of the air if you have a ranged weapon. By this logic, ban bells, they meta rally far more people than a single message.

Ban pvp and ban birds

If you remove birds, remove bells, they rally ALOT more people than a singular bird
