Biggest Pet Peeves in RP

Post by Colonel HollerHavoc on Sat Feb 22, 2014 2:25 pm

Well this is just a general discussion to get to know what people look for in rp by filtering in on their biggest pet peeves during rp. 

Post your pet peeves below and please respect everybody's opinions.


One of my biggest pet peeves is when people ask me things about IC OOC when their char would literally have 0 knowledge. Not knowing things in OOC makes things a hell of a lot more realistic and intense.

People who make characters with descriptions like "Spec Ops Uniform|Carrying M249 and Javelin Launcher|Looks Badass" and then run right to the restricted zone the second they spawn in.

Here are some more people who oughta be strapped into chairs and beaten with crowbars. People who think it's perfectly legitimate to find a 9mm laying around, then walk up behind a CP, say something along the lines of "/me kills combine", and proceed to take all that unit's shit.

Here are some more degenerates who should be tied up and locked in room full of creepers. People who run all around the damn map grabbing up everything that isn't tied down.

Even if you tie it down they'll find a way to get to it. Burn it all.

These blackmail meta people: A person who purposely tells you something about their character usually during some form of action rp and uses it against you so you "can't meta" even though they were the ones who technically meta'd the information to you in the first place.

Example "Jesus I'm scared right now guys, this closet is so claustrophobic"

>Units would realistically search the entire room anyway's as they are not four year olds looking for lost lego pieces. 

>Unit checks closet

"HEY DON'T META!"

>Maximum mask palm.

Honestly though I am sick of this. Since when did it change from "An admin's word is final" to "nah im just going to argue because i dont want my character to die"

Honestly we choose staff who do not RP just to mmake their characters badasses. They won't meta just to kill you and get a promotion (which they wouldnt get anyways from that) so if an admin says something THEN LISTEN TO IT. If you have a legit problem, post it on the forums, arguing on the server will be ignored and you will have a bad time. (both parties)


I know I've done this with the Lambda base because it has actually never been found out (until now) but the password is still unknown. CCA wont meta, they are just doing their job. If we found meta, it would be an instant ban because METAgaming is my BIGGEST pet peeve.

I was just a bit confused at the situation as you seemed to predict each move that was even mentioned in LOOC, but honestly I think we shouldn't let this get in the way of the RP. After further looking at the situation I see where you might be coming from with some actions taken, however I'm still a bit skeptical. I'll be back at 6:00 EST, by the way, so we can continue it then if you and Bazid are still on.

I grow tired of all the fighting over virtually everything.
And then people not joining and then demanding other people join to improve the population.

-People who just run all around searching for "Action" and "Cool things going on" When they could just take things slow and cause the cool things that go on. And then when cool things are happening they chant in OOC about how much they hate it.

-People who break immersion by shouting out "OH LOOK IT'S *insert username/character name here*" -_-

People who LOOC stall for an assload of time for whatever reason , particularly during sweeps. Apparently everything must be argued to death.

Bad grammar or punctuation of any kind. Not capitalizing letters correctly, not using commas, not using periods, exclamation points... The worst is all caps for 'yelling'. All caps does NOT mean yelling. There is an exclamation point for a reason people! Use grammar and shit correctly so I can understand you next time we RP together!

Based off a real conversation I had with a guy waaay back,
you can tell which is me.

'hi"

"Hello, there."

"whats up"

"Uh, not a whole lot. How about you?"

"just hiding from the combine so you know.... the usual"

"Ah, I see. You know, we can talk about more than just the Combine... After all, we do dislike them."

"ya i know i just think we should try and keep an eye out"
"there sneeky you know"

"Yeah, I know. We all know they're sneaky. And keep an eye out for what?"

*suddenly he comes closer*
"/w nazis man"
"oh shit HERE THEY COME"
"/y RUN"
"/y FOLLOW ME I KNOW A SAFE PLACE"
*Proceeds to take me to his CAH apartment*

People that do absolutely zero /me's are pretty annoying. It kind of breaks the immersion because I can't get a sense of how they're reacting to what I say or do.

But then there's also the flip side where "Performing" pops up over the person's head and you're stuck sitting there for 5 minutes while they type a novel that gets cut off anyway.

Everything in moderation people.

People who critique others on RP as if they're "not as good as them" at it.
they all need to die. Like right now.
(unless it's blantly obvious that they're saying shit like)
" hi"
" wats up dude?"
" /me i put the gun in my holster and walked down the street."

I can see why this is annoying, but I tend to yell meta when I use /me during a sweep or when I try to stay hidden. That being said, suddenly the people searching have some sort of biased search pattern which revolves around the spot where the /me took place, even though it was something along the lines of "/me sits motionless and silently".
