    [Community Review] Raids

    The pvp community (or the part of that community) at fault for toxicity, trolling and malicious roleplay has had an undeniable history of this behavior within and without actual raids. This happens with your typical bandits all the time, for example. This isn't some growing resentment toward the rules how they are, and even if it was, that kind of behavior would still be in no way appropriate. What you're proposing is not a solution to toxicity; you're offering a dangerous degree of power to a community that already does its' best to skirt the line of acceptability, in an apparent attempt to appease these players who've shown no precedence toward wanting to better themselves or their behaviors. These rules have been built up for a reason and like I've said, this collective behavior needs to change before something like this rewrite can even be considered.

    [Community Review] Raids

    If you really believe that pvp-related toxicity and 'memery' has anything to do with the cap on raids then you must misunderstand this community on a fundamental level.

    [Community Review] Raids

    It's difficult to build a case against people whose characters are motivated from an ill-intentioned OOC place. This combined with how lenient (or aloof) staff have been in regards to this behavior in the past means that a lot of people, including myself would rather not have to deal with the burden of presenting these issues. Frankly, it should be the place of the moderators to take initiative in these situations where they're able, and leave the example that they actually do care about having these problems resolved. Until then, I think it's entirely inappropriate to suggest these cumulative changes in the community's current overall social climate.

    is the point of this rewrite to make raids as disruptive as possible to actual roleplay or what

    Why I might leave LoTC

    No I'm not. I was a GM during that time though and there were several reports about the shop having made people uncomfortable, and for that reason I do feel it should've been removed. With that said, it wasn't something I was concerned too terribly much about. Surely you can see how someone might be offended by this.

    Why I might leave LoTC

    Refuting the real world context behind the word just because it happens to not show up in google's dictionary is literally cherrypicking, mate. The word's usage on LotC absolutely does not originate from a well-intentioned place.

    Why using your char as an avatar for yourself is a sh*t idea

    I don't think the issue is at all about the portrayal of prejudice in roleplay as much as it is the use of a prejudiced character as a vessel for actual racism and homophobia. In other words, a lack of distinction between IC and OOC. Though the severity of the issue is debatable, the presence is irrefutable and I think I can say with quite a bit of confidence that the issue tends to be treated with a lot of lenience.

    Muh Immersion

    I don't think I'd consider the sense of immersion having any presence when it comes to asking someone to /d40. It occurs to me that you're a lot more concerned with getting guaranteed pixels from people who have the poor sense to capitulate in text-based combat, for the sake of a cooperative rp experience in a server where playing to win and powergaming just on the edge of the rules is actively rewarded.
