How has admining affected your playstyle?

Postby tedward1337 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 5:11 pm #245392

Loaded question, I know. But hear me out.

Before being a regular admin, I found myself playing as miner quite a bit, before the lavaland update and what not. Later on I joined the team and went on. After that I seemed to enjoy security roles, deadming to play warden or HoS. After I moved around to playing atmos tech and now I stick around that mostly while in deadmin to play.

I used to play "regular roles" a lot more but adminning takes up so much effort that now I basically just play clown and tell jokes. It's like if on top of your normal role, you played a detective (who actually does detective work) as well as a lawyer (who actually does lawyering)

Same, but I don't feel like I'm playing any differently. Seeing how the sausage is made has basically confirmed that I've been doing things "the right way" from the getgo.

A shitton more Drone or other disposable roles since I usually have to aghost for some really ridiculous ahelp. Strangely i'm enjoying more just messing with people through little things like swapping the position of a door and a wall in maint after someone just runs through, or spawning a random monkey somewhere just to gauge reactions.

I play pretty much the same. One time I deadminned and went detective and shot some asshole into crit and got bwoinked for it, so I'd say not a lot has changed.
i play Lauser McMauligan. clown name is Cold-Ass Honkey
i have three other top secret characters as well.

I find I enjoy playing security on lowpop now, and that's pretty much it.

Before admin I played a lot of Engineer and Sec, then around the start of admining I'd pick roles its normally janitor or something simple or RP orientated like bar staff. Now mostly I make myself central comm staff and talk special roles into the round when they spawn in (i.e. ERT). Actually mostly I fly around as a ghost, similar to Saegrimr, and make random interactions or try to forfill gimmicky requests and see where things go.
Though that means you end up relying solely on other people for fun.

I don't play AI as much because its not a role I can administrate and play at the same time.

I mean really, the AI is like admin-lite for the average player. Always being asked for favours, first to be blamed when shit hits the fan.
I can understand why you wouldn't want to be doing the same job twice.

I find myself playing botanist/miner more often while adminning. Jobs that I can pop out of my body briefly to explain to assistants why the captain had cause to skewer them.
