YES MY RUSSIAN LORD! YES! I COMPLETELY EFFING AGREE!
I already said mine when elitex posted on the forums about it (here is my exact post : Ehh, sorry mate, but spess SEALS that brutaly torture and murder anything that stands in their way (this part acctualy isn't far from reality, it's a fact they do some unhonourable shit...) , and countries that exist even though Earth is deemed "wasted" for more than 500 years? I seriously, seriously hate to be the jackass who has to derail other peoples ideas, but i mean i seriously hate to be that guy, but someone has to be. Firstly, this seems more like a special job (such as the LLA Perseus peeps) or clan post than acctual suggestion, but correct me if i am mistaken, as i just read the "outlines". Even though the idea itself isn't bad, it just doesn't fit into SS13. It might fit into randomXYZfirstpersonshooterfaggotsplay, but SS13 already has it's own assortment of thieves and pillagers :)But still, it's not up to me to decide, it's all up to the guys on the top. Keep thinking of awesome ideas, you never know. Also, i thing Space Spetznaz would be far more awesome and even more random, thus more cool.
On a side note, i had an ancient idea of an early 21st century sniper "teleported" to the station, with nothing more than his army gear and a shitload to explain to the crew. The good thing would be that he is already armed and can transfer syndie .50 (12,7mm) rounds into empty mags for his sniper rifle, but the bad thing is he has a sensorless suit, and no ID/PDA. )
In fact, i have gone so far to start a revolution against the ASCIAA, and start openly cooperating with the syndicate, as well as restructuring the station (giving everyone max access, stun batons, and telling them to space ASCIAA maggots on sight.) And i won't lie, since ASCIAA is at this time 110% admin, they sure have abused theyre powers as shit. I remember looting a braindead ASCIAA maggot once (Alex Jones), and only a minute later, he strips me, teleports to me, and threatens me to give the ID back. Seriously guys, this is not the SS13 i remember. The whole new alien races, hivebot, new map, elite shitcurity RP crap is just tiring me. I sometimes just wanna go back to a time when SS13 was "Just SS13, no branches." When assistants roamed the wild, and grey tides were imminent.
To outline the important thing for tl;dr-ers, here it is : And i won't lie, since ASCIAA is at this time 110% admin, they sure have abused theyre powers as shit. I remember looting a braindead ASCIAA maggot once (Alex Jones), and only a minute later, he strips me, teleports to me, and threatens me to give the ID back.
RLord, keep the good work up. I would rather have a goon-platformed Apoc Station than a jackshit insane runaway new branch Binkow and Hitman are creating. Someone needs to stand up and openly say what he thinks about it, not just say "OH WOOOH WOOH NEW MAP OH MY GAWD WHEN DO WE GET TEH M4 ABND ALL TEH OTHER AAMILITRAY SHIT CMN ADMAINS DON BE FAGGOZS WEN DO EW GET COD WEAPONSD AC!". Seriously, in some aspects, the SS13 community has degraded SO MUCH in the last few months, that i barely recognize it. Only a few months ago, i could openly talk about the Balkans on Goon (!), but if i were to try the same thing now, on /tg/, crappolo or any other random branch, it would definitely mean admins falling on my ass for "provoking racial uneaquality and terrorism". The fuck? Do they even know what the Balkans are? Back on topic, i completely agree with Lord, this has gone too far. We should seriously start a poll on staying true to /tg/, or continuing with our little branch.
