This is still a thing !?!
« on: February 15, 2019, 02:14:30 AM »
In the course of a really weird work conversation the concept of games like CoM came up.  I was pleasantly surprised this was still a thing.  Glad someone is keeping it that way.  Someone please continue.

We're trying to make it a thing again. There's a small player base but it is growing slowly. We've ran into a new set of challenges these days but we are doing our best out there.

I think that's the really cool thing about games. There are all sorts and all kinds, and as long as they continue to entertain, they live on. For me, I appreciate the low-bandwidth, low graphics requirement, minimal install space required, multiplayer support and persistent world...

I was so happy when I found it last month. Planning on sticking around as much as I can.

I motored around for a couple hours yesterday and noted the following:

1.  Almost all PC interactions were gear-based.  Gotta step up the ice-breaking game.
2.  Almost all OOC interactions were "who are you" based.  Not nearly as welcoming as you may think.
3.  Me looking at something awful - "Holy shit what was I thinking when I wrote that?"

I wholeheartedly agree with the OOC thing. It's mostly a bother to people and doesn't have any bearing on present play. While I think people could also do better than let's go get gear, I also understand that a lot of people struggle without direction and focus on what they know how to do. So I'm pretty patient with that sort of stuff but try to foster RP at the same time.
