There's a reason for it, just like every single time this damned thing dies!

Y'all focus waaaaaay too much on big, huge amounts of combat, take waaaaay too long to get the story going, do not focus on smaller character groups to promote your race and instead focus on big events..

And there's no easy RP, such as diplomacy or just passive groups. These need to be promoted in order for the RP to flourish.

ALSO... I suggest dropping the huge technological advances and, instead of focusing on what is real, focus on what is fun!

You know what is fun? Having two groups passive, fight past their racial differences, and show off a bit, with a little SIMPLE fighting in between with basic guns or, at best, pulse rifles (Think Colonial Marines or UNSC tech).

Y'know what's not fun? Massive walls of text explaining EVERYTHING that is happening in your race. HUGE battles that are annoying to write. Stupid technology such as self-aware MIRV nukes (no offense Alien lol), and failing to understand that this is a fun rp.

Bada-Bing.

i mean you guys kind of relied on me and wookie to get any semblance of plot going and we're both busy w/ military shit. training/ftx/duty > rp

me and wookie are gonna rp by ourselves once he gets wifi so if you want to join idc go ahead but dont expect us to keep it running if work gets in the way. we gave everyone the tools to make rp autonomous, i allow you to do almost anything with your nation as long is it keeps within the base rules and is reasonable, and i dont lord over ur RP and tell you whats right and wrong.

i tried to make diplomacy a thing but it really just me/wook/alien. imo main reasons for failure:

- constant reliance on wookie/I to get RP going when you could do it amongst yourselves with the freedom i've given you. like he and i do on a regular basis (cold war theme w/ my country and his being the prime example, or like klub navadniy)

- people want me to introduce their isolationist nations which is really a pain in the ass and its not fun doing first contact rp ("beep boop blop o h sir i think idecoded their language its like a chinese but like spoken from a dog's anus i guess whatever fuck you sir")

- people have lives and can't respond the next day or sooner. wookie is MOS qualified and working all day now and i'm still in training status at school for 11 hours a day, usually followed by a watch, command PT, or duty. or a combo of the 3.

- my job and the training required is already very mentally exhausting, and while i'll spend parts of the day fantasizing what to do next in the space cold war with wook/alien i'll usually end up falling right asleep after i get back from evening chow.

tl;dr dont rely on us were not here to hold ur hand

Id be all cool for a restart or a continuation if you guys want. I have a few alterations is like to add, if possible.

I'd like to be able to switch my race to something different too; a race that might promote easy rp instead of making it difficult.

OH! And if we do, let's have it so other races are at least aware of one another. First contact rp is so damned dull.

Yeah no duh. It's so bad that we need to restart. I'm pretty sure blitz was saying that everything you suggested was part of the original reboot's M.O.

Alright. If you guys want a little help with GM'ing, I'm totally up for it. I have a little more free time, although not as much as I'd like.

When do you think we could restart?
