When they get a greentext all on their own, without looking at the wiki.

you never become a veteran to this game and if you ever claim to be some old fuck who hasnt played since 1993 will show up to call you a newbie.

Unfortunately I cannot find the old forums anymore, so you can't really reference it for a players veterancy.

My byond account was created around 2011, if anyone cares to know.

Being serious. I believe a 'veteran' would simply be someone who's played the game long enough to be familiar with the games systems and major departments.

Even then though, I'd argue a true 'veteran' would be someone who is familiar enough with SS13 that they can quickly adapt and adopt new techniques and concepts that have been developed and added into the game.

Anyone whose played longer than me has played too long and anyone newer than me hasn't played enough.
I code for the code project and moderate the code sections of the forums. I haven't played in like 2 years so don't listen to my suggestions.

Why realism is stupid:
Spoiler:
Wiz, the project lead of Europa Universalis IV:

Immersion/flavor is playing a WW2 shooter and using a mosin-nagant instead of a laser gun - this is important.

Realism is playing a WW2 shooter and having to spend 2 months in hospital everytime you get shot - stupid and detrimental to gameplay. Nobody actually wants a realistic game, which is why realism arguments are so selectively used.
