70 people on server. No security. Only HoS, who is afk. 5+ tide raid Captains office within 30 seconds of round start. Non antags. Steal access. Steal shit. Corner Captain who is alone defending herself. Lots of people die. Captain dies. 6 minutes pass.

The is not a rare thing. Every, fucking round, Captains locker will be stolen at the very least. Tide will reign. I report it over common, I get called kike by many. Am I the only one who hates this? What this server (Bagil at least) has become? What happened to roleplaying station employees? Why is every round a race to grab power and then exploit it?

If Revolution wasn't a thing then I would play sec. Not like that would matter currently at the moment since I haven't played a lot of ss13 recently but still.

Thing is, stealing the cap's locker is required if you want the spare id card unless you can break it in the office. To have all access basically means you can kinda have a bit more fun because despite how specific job access is needed so people don't powergame every job, it's still fucking annoying when you run into a door leading to a place you want to go but it won't open. This won't really change the game and make you go WOW THIS GAME IS FUCKING AMAZING however I'm just saying one reason why I think non-antags get it.

This is why I often prefer to help sec or not be a gigantic asshole. They already go through hell.

Lmao another post complaining about greytide. Whats next, static names ruined ss13?

You can write off my opinion as a known shitter who is here to have a fun time, not a civilized time. But I play security a pretty high amount, probably more so than you lumber, and greytiding isn’t the issue you paint it to be. Generally speaking, when I start tiding in an intrusive manner, I do it knowing I’m 100% valid (or at least its my mentality). That way, if I get killed as a grey I’m rarely frustrated, which is why I can switch between grey and redtide so easily.

Anyways, people like you are too caught up in the game. As far as it doesn’t coincide with rule 1, greytiding is healthy and fun. When I first started playing sec, I’d try to keep the station 100% under control. But that’s impossible. It goes against the game, and especially against tg. I would become really frustrated and would start to dislike every new tider that came along. But then I took a step back and remembered they play to have fun too.

Regardless there are some great rules with dealing with tiders, such as not being a dick. People like you who try to perma infamous tiders as early as possible are doing it wrong. Simply be nice, talk a little, and they won’t be a dick back. If they’re still a fag after that, fucking gulag.

For my complete psychoanalytic break down of the tider mind, there is one key principle. Tiders, like all trouble makers, simply desire attention. If you ignore them, they’ll either stop and give up, or come to you. Tune in tomorrow for Dr. Cobb’s take on lizards.

I wouldn't get rid of greytide even if I could. Greytide is what gives security purpose. Security is an in-game mechanic meant to balance out the greytide.

Unfortunately normal officers don't have gulag access, so I do this only once in a blue moon when being HoS.

Well according to my /played, I'm an AI main, but oh well. And no, my point is the sec is not only to foil antags, but they are here only to handle grey tide.

wesoda25 wrote:Lmao another post complaining about greytide.


No, I'm complaining that greytide is the only thing. Because it is. And it's always the same. The same MO, the same insults they throw at you IC and OOC. It's just boring, I haven't played sec in weeks.

wesoda25 wrote:Anyways, people like you are too caught up in the game. As far as it doesn’t coincide with rule 1, greytiding is healthy and fun.


I don't find it fun. I can't. I just can't enjoy ruining other peoples game for no reason (antag is not the problem, that's part of the game)

wesoda25 wrote:When I first started playing sec


I think I mentioned many times why I used to enjoy playing sec. It's not validhunting, might shock you yes. It's just that I enjoy interacting with other people doing rp as police. Simply patrollin. Asking Janitor is he being bullied, telling he can always count on me. Approaching HoP line and asking if there's any problems. Asking random person to consent to a search, and sending them away with "thank you citizen".

It is, when you're AI. I guess that's why I have notes for playing Robocop when Asimov. Because I tried to make round a better experience for everyone else who is not a baddie, by trying to contain tide and dumb murderboner.

Confirmed for not playing the game.

And another issue is that the lack of security is exacerbated by the power gap between sec and antags. Antags devolve into murderboner and destruction almost every time, because they can, and are able to. And it reduces you to Benny Hill bobby chasing around the station trying to stop them.

Like Dante Smith, in full miner gear, just fucking killing everyone.

So: chasing around murderboner is not fun = less people play sec = murdeboner has easier time to murderboner. Vicious circle.

3 types of sec players. The complete newbies who can’t do shit. The “powergamers” who thrive on game modes stacked against sec and hate extended. And the rp officer who wants to be realistic security aboard a space station.

I understand why the game isn’t fun for people like you, because it’s built around stun the other guy before they stun you. Theres no room for roleplay because you’re just gonna end up dead. That being said, I’ve seen some good gimmicks involving detectives or sec officers.

Also...

These are all possible, maybe aside from the last one.

At the end of the day, is tg the right server for you?

There's more to a ss13 server than how your favorite thing is interacted with. This seems like a dumb question imo.

examples
Spoiler:
Example 1: let's say you are uber-hardcore roleplayer and like gray aliens. You prefer the tgstation abductor compared to paradise/vgstation/etc greys because you think the abductor looks better than greys. People won't roleplay with you on tg, though. One other thing, however, is that you fucking love the tgstation medical system and think that any other medical system is shit. also no this isn't why i play here except i do prefer tgstation abductors. that part is true.

Do you leave or stay?

Example 2: You like Goonstation. You think Goonstation and Hippie Station are the two best normal ss13 servers and you really enjoy both. Your issue is that you can't handle Goonstation's antags. You fucking hate how the antags are designed and played. In comparison, you think Hippie Station has the best antags. Another thing is that you like the Goonstation community yet you don't like the Hippie Station community. Both servers are of equal value to you except for the community and antags in each.

Do you play Goonstation or Hippie Station if you had to pick only one?

Example 3: You are reading the tgstation forums.

Leave or stay?

It was, but it "evolved". Like, think about it. Parasteng was murderboner. Ebow+sord was muderboner. But it was not so blatant and round disruptive. And yet both got nerfed. But what we get in exchange? More tools to outwardly murder en masse. And traitors used to do objectives too. And station didn't explode so often. Grey tide also used to be more subtle and not IN YOUR FACE. Does rule precedent 1.4 even apply anymore?

grey tide, like art, is performed by autists and they'll shoot their shit any time any place. the only way to stop a greytide is to ban all the players who commit it.

Space Law should be reviewed/written by admins and any player that joins as Security should be allowed to enforce it in any way they deem fit, so issues like greytide can be dealt IC, or not dealt with and just have a crazier round. Less trouble for admins, less stressful security (not having to worry about being banned).

The chance of being thrown into a Revolution round as a member of Security is the biggest turn off to playing as Security, in my opinion.

In my opinion, Revolution is a binary, repetitive, stressful gamemode that is a glorified team deathmatch in a game built on the idea creativity and uniqueness.

In this game mode, Security are heavily encouraged, scratch that, demanded, to go to war with the entire station in a crackdown that oft makes the 'Purge' pale in comparison. You become the monster that people joke about in an all out struggle to see who can rack up the biggest body count.

The game mode represents the biggest paradigm shift in gameplay. Outside of War Ops, you are suddenly shifted from a Security Officer on another shift, filled with uncertainty and suspicion, onboard Space Station 13 into a member of a paramilitary Colombian death squad where your enemy is anyone who does not have a flashing icon above them. At least in War Ops you work together with the entire crew to deal with the threat and the actions of the Operatives and the Crew make the round interesting and unique to a degree.

Fighting the entire crew is not fun, playing as a member of Security is challenging enough let alone tossing on the shitshow of a Rev round. Everyone you kill or capture is going to shit talk you in OOC or deadchat because you lack a psychic link to tell they were not a Rev, or they were a Rev but they don't care. As you devolve from noble intentions of capturing the crew and slowly trying to weed out the problem, until after round after round you crack and decide to kill them all and let the admins sort them out.

Putting my rant aside. Revolution, at least for Security, does not feel like a stress reliever but as a stressor.

if every tider had this mentality this issue would be solved by slaughter (good) but unfortunately players seem to feel they have a right to bust into top-clearance and steal a locker in the hopes cap is new enough to not take the spare at round start. i hate tiding with a burning passion but if it at all seemed like they accepted responsibility for their shit id be a lot less concerned about it since an easy crit or 400 gulag solves the problem for multiple rounds

CosmicScientist wrote:And why is rev a turnoff for anyone but the detective?

rev is a turnoff for everyone that starts with an implant because for them its always the same 2 fucking rounds
1) revs are confirmed 4 minutes in after the rd and cmo are ganked easily
2) all heads camp out in brig, occasionally moving with a mob of officers to get implants from cargo
3) sec just hangs out in brig waiting for chumbi to wander into sec's hallway, upon which they are cuffed and implanted
4) repeat step 3 until 80% of the crew is implanted and armed or dead
5) spark a manhunt for the last camping headrev that lasts like 15 minutes
OR
1) revs aren't confirmed for whatever reason, or heads didn't bother hiding in sec
2) 70% of the crew are revs within 12 minutes and arm themselves with trash in maint and whatever they can steal from sec
3) heads die because sec either is understaffed or dead
4) ce jetpacks around the zlevel for 20 minutes before being slaughtered
shit game mode that's only fun for the antags, akin to tedious factory work for those trying to stop them

I hate having to turn into Hitler every time I play sec but you're literally given no choice since greyscum are the biggest sociopaths this side of the internet. Being a greynigger should immediately make you valid, I believe that would undoubtedly curb the faggotry and make security actually fun to play.

This but unironically. We have a lower pop and as a result, it's harder for tiders to hide their identities so they're often outed much more quickly. Being singled out means the entire crew will be on the lookout for them, and since most of us are just trying to go about our shift, we'll be happy to robust someone who's known to be shitting with others trying to do the same.

It's pretty rare to see a Sybil round without at least one or two sec because they tend to know they'll have support from the general crew if things start getting hairy for them. Oh and also, lower pop = never rev rounds. Something to consider!
