I played a multi-star "Role-playing" game hosted by this guy Code-something, I will have to look at the replay for his name, actually I should post the replay because it's hilarious, but, anyway he states that all he wants to do is have a nice long four player ffa roleplaying game. After an all-nighter out with my friends it was like 7AM my time and there were no other games, so I decided what the heck, we'll see where this takes us.
The two other players besides him and I were in an eco race right off the bat, and I had already formed an informal alliance with the guy in my system, so I just chilled and did the same because this was a chance to play Sim City in Space Patrol!!!
I don't know exactly what his notion of role playing was but he was out of character with all his chat until I said something like, "I thought you wanted a role playing game". To which he replied something like, "...ok, *I will use asterisks as background talk*. And although he did a lot of talking, I don't remember him using asterisks again.
He started saying stuff like, "...Can we all just coexist in galactic harmony?" Since he was playing Vasari, and me being an Advent player that game, I responded with my own brand of character along the lines of, "...treachery and lies Vasari scum!" Which he couldn't quite reconcile and proceed to promote that he was really a "Hybrid faction" of Tec/Vasari that were peace loving and had been imprisoned by the Vasari for centuries, and now all they wanted was to avoid conflict. I will say that he was very creative and imaginative with some of his dialogue which centered on the whole "Vasari outcasts" angle, but of course this just added fuel to my fire and I continued as the protagonist.
One of the other players, (the guy sharing my system) actually started fanning the flames a little bit because he couldn't resist I suppose, and it was quite comical the more upset "Hybrid" got. He eventually started saying he thought we were fools not to make peace with him, and that we were all conspiring to align against him, and that we would all be banned from ever playing in his games "...ever again!!!" And then he quit after deadheading his meager armada smack dab into the other guys max upgraded and overwhelmingly superior fleet.
I think my eco was a pathetic 150 per since I had but the other two guys were like 300-400, and after all our max upgraded fleets started populating the map, the lag became atrocious and I bowed out. From what I understand by talking to them later, one of the players fell asleep afterwards, and the battle royal never took place.
I suppose this is a long round about way of relating that if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen, especially if the kitchen is a multi-star role-playing ffa that you host!
