    Let them serve their slays next time their on, RDM and leave should only be for the trolls who hop on servers (cough nilla) and just mass rdm then bounce, our regular players have lives, they might be pulled away by real life obligations given the number of adults we have here, why the fuck should we force someone to play a video game.


    EDIT: A key factor should be all slays are now global and not server based, this would prevent someone from region hopping and not having to suffer anytime.

    EDIT 2: Slays would still have to be served on a full round basis, if you leave the system can automatically re apply the slay.

    This would lead to a lot of players feeling that regulars would have big benefits to avoid punishments over those that just started and regulars know better than anyone that if you are playing you have to be able to server slays or you shouldn't be playing in the first place. This would just lead to more dodging of slays since they wouldn't be able to ban them so people could join when no staff is on and just dodge then too.

    You can just leave as soon as the slay has been done without playing the entire round which is why a system like this wouldn't work out plus the fact that it wouldn't be fair.

    I would add that this is a lot of work to change a system that isn't broken and even if some rare cases it might be better than what it is right not this is far from needed(and by that I mean how the slays work and not about the regulars).

    The part about auto adding slays is like 1 line of code, since theres already detective for when a player leaves when slain just have it run the command to run a slay to their steamid from console. Global slays would be a bit trickier but I know for a fact highwon and opal could do it in a weekend or less so easily.

    While I completely agree with this in it's ideal, it just looks bad to new players. SGM's main draw in the rules is the fair and universal application of them. That, at least in appearances, is completely broken by this one. In the eyes of a new player, or just someone who lacked a nuanced understanding of the rules, they would see this as biased and ridiculous, even if it was enforced perfectly.

    I think if we made the appeal process quicker/more readily approved by staff, we could accomplish much the same effect without damaging server reputation.

  11. This is a bad idea in general, both in attracting new players and retaining them.

    We have plenty of toxic regulars who probably would jump at the opportunity to abuse this, as well.

    Furthermore, it'd be really easy to argue what exactly constitutes a regular in the inevitability that someone who thinks they're a "regular" gets banned for RDM and leave.

    One of the worst suggestions regarding bans ever. It's only a matter of time before this is locked.

    I'll just deny this now. I don't see why we should give regulars any level of preference over a normal player.
