Re: Show us the Straightliners

Nah man, screw that. Don't give them a chance to explain themselves, because if they have something to explain then they would have let you know about it before they left.


GO THREAD GO, public shamefests are the only thing that work in this game.

Re: Show us the Straightliners

It's been awhile since I bossed an Atlantis run, but I've seen the board blank out with dropped pieces on it when people lag. Maybe it was the way I XO'd; I rarely had straightliners, because I had the reputation of actually planking. I also had a reputation of being fair if it was a one time occurance. If someone was zzz'ing on a station, they got planked, because even in a legit emergency, most people would stop puzzling for stat protection.

I kept a list of all plankees, and at the end, if they had not pled their case, they went on mute lists.

All warnings were given in tells, then repeated shipwide, so other people knew what was going on. Other than that, I rarely yelled anything but encouragement, preferring the carrot to the stick, but they all were aware that the stick was used when called for.

I had few rules. Only haul when whistled, keep stations full, everyone should defend and I would warn when I needed puzzlers, send a tell if you go afk, and no spamming, selling, or otherwise being an asshat on the ship. Chronic abusers of my good will would be planked.

I didn't play favorites on defenders, I didn't play favorites on hauling. (In other words, anyone could haul who wanted to when the ok was given, and I didn't have stat requirements for defending, nor did I let my hearties laze). If you came on the ship, promised to defend every single fray, but asked if you could be in a cabin to help with d/c issues, I would work with you. If you were never on the fray list, you were gone.

It amazes me when I play on some SMH trips, how unfun the XO makes it. Always yelling, always hitting that whistle button, only allowing their crew/hearties to haul, never giving the ok to haul, heaven forbid if you have to pee midrun. The results are soooo much better if you realize that everyone wants to have a good time, and most people are willing to work for it, rather than assuming everyone who makes a mistake is trying to cheat you, and that everyone on the ship are lazy goodfornothings that need treated like they're 5.
