Well not having actual characters to get invested in or get into character of does hurt. Individual players would probable be far more committed if participating was more than just selecting a few options every 5 days or all to often just copy past someone elses vote or just something random without seemingly paying attention to what they are selecting. And i was trying to do it in character or what i thought was in character there is just a dichotomy between the peaceful and unifying nature of the OCP and what battletech is all about and the fact the players themselves hail from websites like SB where heavy handed stupidity happens. Also not helped that a large part of battletech for players is arguing tech/politics or meta builds which really does not or cannot happen here. This game is weird in how unlike basically every other BT game or cross i have seen there is no heavy sustained discussion. How much of this is based on the game being on a site with little traffic and how much that there not much reason to do so... I dont know.Okay people...
Thanks to the feedback that is currently coming up...
I will be putting this on hold, while I evaluate whether to start over or continue this. Especially since everyone is coming up with Out Of Character view points, rather than dealing with the problem in an In Character way.
Aside from that, I'm currently experiencing a creative block, that is not at all helped by people nagging that they can't go in guns blasting and killing everyone on sight.
On the other hand, I had the learning experience I expected when I got into this mess. And know that I will go at things differently should I start a V 2.0 of this game.
Good luck with that block though given all that is prepared and could do not sure where it could be coming from. Probable check back later or tomorrow. If this game is going on hiatus i have little reason to even come to this site i am afraid.
