The Badmin Role

Post by Highway Routine » #621233

I feel like there should be a very very small chance that when you spawn as a traitor you gain admin powers. No strings attached, you just have them.

this seems like it would just cause massive problems with no real way for anyone aside from the person with the role to have fun.

becoming admin traitor and deleting the world is the equivalent of becoming wizard and suiciding, just more powerful

the year is 2077. someone just beat the equivalent statistical odds of winning powerball. half of the players online just got permabanned with the reason of "ligma balls lmao". Loud Nigra Rainbow Ride Magic Missile BEES Remastered begins playing exactly 60 seconds after the round begins. the server is going to crash by the time the next 60 seconds pass. this is considered engaging gameplay. all is well in the world

I think you underestimate the amount of tooling we give admins

Think you've missed the basics of what is considered "desired game design". Having one person literally just ruin everyone else's round with no effort, no time taken and with no counter isn't fun for almost everyone, as you seem to realise, so why would this be a good idea? Single player experience, which leads conveniently on to.

If you wanna mess around with admin tools, just go run a private server and you can run yourself as Host, which I think is the highest ranking server side powers (not all admins have the same powers in fact). You'll also quite quickly (if you start really just randomly mashing things) work out why it's a pretty bad idea. Admins have a lot of access to do a lot of things we shouldn't actually do to a real server.

Edit: There's even a button under debug I think to populate the station with NPCs. Which is more than you'd get on a production server once people caught on to this round type, mass suicide is already a nukie and kilo affliction because people don't want to bother with that, so on production you can imagine a round with almost no-one actually playing, and you murdering them pretty quickly anyway because you can. Literally have more to play with on a NPC server.
