Off-peak players, unite!
« on: August 07, 2019, 12:28:55 AM »
I'm British, and there are rarely any other RPers around when I log into STO and the role-play-focused fleets I've looked at usually seem to schedule their RP events, the ones where they actually do anything rather than just stand around talking about it, for what for me is the middle of the night.  Sound familiar?

Role-players from Europe, from Asia, or anyone else who just happens to have a schedule such that they can't play in American peak hours, have a bit of a raw deal.  In STO there isn't any one fleet, that I know of, that has enough of us together to give a decent chance of having someone to play with.  Of course, if there is any such fleet, one which genuinely is busy at off-peak times, and with actual role-play going on, I'd be very glad to hear about it.

I think we need to all get together somehow.  Added together across the game, there might be a decent number of us, and we could organise RP events in our own hours, or not necessarily even events but just "next Tuesday from 5pm GMT is RP day, look out DS9".

We could start a fleet, or all flock to one existing fleet.  But speaking for myself, I want to stay with the fleet I'm currently in, at least with my two mains.  The other option is we could just form a cross-fleet group via the forum.

Anyone interested?

Interestingly timed... you weren't in the channel at this exact time were you, we were having more or less this exact discussion!

So basically, we're working on some things at the moment, so watch this space!


The general idea we have at the moment however is a cross-fleet group through the forum working towards a common goal so there's more than just "meet up at Quarks" going on. (Not that that's a bad thing, nor will this mean that sort of RP won't be something that will happen).


We'll get some details out soon™!

Luckier and luckier, because I'm not much into "just meet up at Quark's and stand around" roleplaying either.  My next post was going to be ideas for things to experiment with in the hope of livening spontaneous RP in "social areas" up a bit, if that's all that's available - one was playing Quark and/or Hadron as (shared) characters, one was being a floor singer, and I forget the other at the moment.  That would probably still come in handy at times, there'll always be that, but it would be better still to have things that weren't it.  And there was me thinking that this had been a flop.  Thank you!
