I’ve been playing a lot of MRP, and it just, well it isn’t Medium Role Play. It’s about the same as the LRP server. The main thing seems to be people migrating from LRP servers, and they still play like it’s an LRP server. It’s fine if everyone wants it to be an LRP server like the other one, just with a lower pop, but I think it’s kinda misleading to advertise it as MRP. I’ve been told a lot that it’s just because admins won’t do their job, and maybe that’s true to an extent, but you can’t expect them to be able to ban a constant influx of shitlers.
I know, you might not want a whitelist because it’ll lower pop, and it will, but realistically it won’t change too much, and no, it won’t die. The people who want to MRP will gladly sign up for a whitelist, it’ll only filter out people who are perfectly fine with LRP. It doesn’t make sense that just because the server has a basic whitelist, basically just making you confirm to the admin that you read the rules, that all the sudden people who liked MRP would immediately stop.
And the MRP server isn’t MRP, I can confirm from playing on it. Anyone who has played on it CAN confirm that it isn’t MRP. From the captain yelling “N word!!!*” (The forums don’t let you post a thread with the actual word in it) in the main comms, to a non-antags destroying the station. It all happens, just like LRP.
The whitelist wouldn’t be strict either, basically just confirm to the admins that you’ve read the rules. I know, shitlers can get through that easy. But it will help filter out a lot of them, and will improve the quality of the server.
To close, it’s either putting in a whitelist, or change it to an LRP server. No, those aren’t the only two options, this can be ignored and nothing will change, and the MRP server will continue to disappoint players joining it, expecting MRP, like it says it is. I’m not angry at anyone specific, I think the admins are all great people, but I just want to see this change. If you’ve read this far, thank you, it means a lot that you’d even consider it, and have a nice day!
