Enable blood brothers

Postby pubby » Fri Mar 23, 2018 4:42 pm #393694

Hi friends. Can we have blood brother mode* (TRAITORBRO) enabled in the config? Whatever percent added can be taken off traitorchan. I recommend 5%.

And if it's set, please increase BROTHER_SCALING_COEFF to something like 20 Keeping it at 6 results in way too many antagonists.

[*] Blood brothers are small antag teams that must work together to complete their objectives. The mode includes regular traitors as well.

Take it off of wizard or conversion modes because I don't like wizard and conversion happens too often.

I know most people think of neat RP interactions and master plans but whenever I think of groups of solo antags I just think of roaming deathsquads ebow eswording everyone and constantly recalling the shuttle

They are the weakest antag in existence. They don't get any special powers. They don't get any special items. They don't have protection or knowledge about the dozen of other traitors that spawn in the round. All they have is a single buddy; that's it. Do you really think that makes them more likely to take over the station than rev, cult, changeling, and even regular traitors?

Anyway, I don't really want to argue about if the game mode is good/worth keeping yet. Such opinions will become obvious if it's enabled. Anything else is speculation.

Trained from birth, only these two brothers know how to piggyback without using their hands. Some much shed training this skill, tears, sweat, blood.

They don't even have traitor gear though. And pretty much every single other antag in the game can have a team. Lings have ling teamchat, wizards can get apprentices, nuke ops are a 4 person team with extra deadly traitor gear, the conversion antags convert, the blob can make blobernauts, etc. I suspect most of the opposition to this has less to do with how op traitors who have no gear teaming up is and more people who take their greentext too seriously and get really salty when their teammates death denies it.

I set it to blood brothers once.

Pretty much everyone was antag. It wasn't fun. I despise the gamemode now.

My suggestion is we fix up IAA if we really want to add one of the unused gamemodes, to be honest.

That seems like a thing that could be easily fixed by reducing the number of antags it spawns.

Yes that's why BROTHER_SCALING_COEFF in the config should be set to be something higher. It was mistakingly set to a low value when the mode was merged.

The equation is: number of brother teams =number of players / BROTHER_SCALING_COEFF (with a minimum of 1 team)

So a value like 20, 30, or even 40 seems ideal to generate less teams.

We already have items designed so that traitors can work together (and one that only works if you are teamed up with another traitor/stole his TC), and its cheap enough you can buy that item, buy an ebow, and buy no-slips.
We have a devil who can give people minion player characters in exchange for their souls.
We have an antag who can get back up after it dies, can mute people by bumping into them, can grow an armblade, can get temporary stun immunity, and can chat with all 3-5 others like him.
Is anyone seriously trying to argue that this game mode is OP?
Obviously the scaling is all wrong, but this is a trivial fix to a mode that looks a lot more fun and balanced then several we have.
I suppose we would have to reduce some other modes frequency. I suggust traitor-chan. I understand how people might be worried that some people would team up in this mode and just run around murderboning, but it would have to be really damn awful to be worse then what happens when there are robust lings.

So, I see no one knows what this mode is about.
.It's traitors, think of regular traitors. Got it? Alright, now imagine that all the traitors suddenly lost all their telecrystals.
In exchange for that, they each instantly know who another traitor is. Also, both of those traitors who know who each other are, get the same objectives.
So you effectively have regular traitors, but every two traitors in exchange for TC,
Get the same objectives, and know who each other are. I hope this makes things less confusing.
EDIT: Also, there aren't more of them. The mode just wasn't set up correctly. It's the same amount you'd get for regular traitors!

What's not interesting about two traitors who have to rely on their jobs to complete their traitor objectives? Do you not want to see a cargo technician and a scientist work together? You know that every blood brothers round would be different. It relies on creativity.

I'm all for making antags depend on their department (and directly nerfing assistant antag in the process) but I don't see replacing the TC with a second antag as being the solution. DA was already a problem even if you removed the TC from the equation.

Ok, so the problem once again becomes too many traitors? Or is it "oh fuck traitor with tc also has to kill other tators with a tc." Yeah, I think blood brothers is immune to all the faults of DA? Rebuttal 100: Blood Brothers is a really good mode, don't deny it.

So what your saying is, blood brothers encourages all the things the coders have been wanting with there nerfs? Inter-departmental co-operation. A roleplaying experience by teaching someone else some new strategies via departmental team-ups, and the everlasting bonds of successfully doing a co-op mission with a partner? S C R A P I T.

I also tried to develop traitor partners last year but traitor code was such spaghetti with so many snowflake checks and procs where you had to visit 4 files just to figure out what they did that I gave up because testing was extremely difficult.

I do think we need to experiment with this more and enabling these guys would be a start, I dunno why the creator gave them their own mode and not just make them a traitor subtype (probably because of aforementioned traitor code).

Also, did the tests for the infiltrator mode go badly or what? I haven't heard a peep about that after a couple initial tests.

The one test I was involved in was fun, but the shuttle bugged out and we couldnt exfiltrate.

It was a fun, stealthy version of operatives.

BROTHER_SCALING_COEFF still needs increasing regardless of whether or not the mode is enabled.

So the only issue people have with this mode is that there were too many antag which the other option fixes? I'd think at least trialing bloodbrothers with the right option set might be nice.

I don't think changing a line of text is too much hassle, especially considering the amount of babying that went into both cults and gang. If the headmins aren't interested then I would appreciate a response from them.

This, "too many antags" was literally a goofy mistake that's easily corrected. How come this mode isnt in rotation? Reeeee

I want it to be a full on mode, not a teecee trade. Mainly because, if I trade 20 tc to have "harold robinson" as my blood brother. All of my effort can go down the drain by the dual e-sword or sleeping carp chumbis. It'd really suck to have your non-antag item gimmick be destroyed by an antag with the weapons to instantly OHKO you. I'd prefer it if everyone were in one boat, or the other. Not in multiple different boats!

I mean it sounds pretty sweet, I remember valentines mode (closest thing I have played to blood brothers) being pretty sweet when the other person isn't just fucking off to do their own thing.

If having "Another guy" unbalances the antag, take away their telecrystals. Although personally I like the idea of the two having a very small pool that they have to share. Maybe to the point where you can only really afford one item. No boxes. Just one thing.

Yeah, that's the gimmick of the mode. Blood Brothers is basically traitor but you remove there TC and give two pairs of traitors knowledge of each other and the same objectives. They work together to complete their objectives without TC. The only reason people feel goofy about it is because someone goof'd and made TOO MANY traitors, the only time this mode was enabled. Which was dumb. You have the regular amount of tater tots on normal traitor! You just, make two pairs of all the normal traitor's teammates, without TC and the same objective!

Could've sworn I added them to bagil with a small % to happen. Must've misspelled the line. I want to try out blood brothers for a while, the coefficient is 20 players per team of brothers.
So uhh, I'm an admin. Please leave feedback! Oops took me a while to strike that through.

Ran it earlier today 3 teams on a 40 pop round. Went okay, one team worked together a bit (the ones with assassin objectives) but the other two immediately split up and went to do their own things. I noticed for a round having essentially 6 traitors that that only about 3 people got murdered which was definitely something I havent seen in awhile and the assassins were a lot more careful in trying to take out their target. Definitely saw a lot more stealth which was nice.

I think it could be a nice change of pace to enable it as a gamemode, even if some pairings don't work together there is definitely potential for some interesting scenarios given the push for creativity since no TC. I would suggest having it be like 1 pairing to every 15 players just because some teams might turn out to be duds, but 20 might be better too since it really depends who is a BB and how good they are at teamwork.

I'd say put them at the same percentage as like wiz. Although it might be cool to have a hybrid gametype like Traitorchan. If you had two regular traitors and 2 pair of blood brothers thats a full traitor round and only 40TC on station, but who knows. Either way I'd call BB a cool gamemode.

SPECIAL REQUEST: someone please change the icon in the admin hud for blood brothers to something other than the valentines day heart, frankly its silly
