I have no clue why it advertises itself as friendly to new players. Because it clearly isn’t.
Last round I played as HOP and everything went fine, I manned the HOPline and checked on service occasionally. Then nukies were announced, and I wanted to give out AA so the crew could fight them. Captain said no, and you could tell he was genuinely mad at me for even trying to do so, and told me to stop, because there are “other confirmed threats”, which translated means there were heretics therefore the gamemode was dynamic, not nukies and it could mean that gasp a valid could touch one of these AA cards. Who cares if nukies blow up the station? Or if they instantly cause delta alert every other time they get announced? But no, as long as le valid doesnt get le boost its okay I guess.
Then I tried to call red alert, since nukies were present, but captain got pissed at me again, because apparently it has been called 5 minutes ago. I didnt hear it, seriously. It might be bugged or something because I didnt hear the sound. But then he told me it was so obvious that it was red alert because of “the fire alarms”. Because apparently on red alert theyre blinking??? Based on not knowing this obscure fact that isnt even on the wiki he straight up went to asking me if I was even fit for duty.
So I left. I was tired of these poorly disguised personal insults towards me. Nukies mightve destroyed the station, I didnt check how the round turned out. But again, no one gives a shit. Its all my fault now because I dared to be new at command unlike all those other REAL command mains whove been on 1000+ hours since the day they fucking installed byond.
(Not everyone, but most) people who joined before the end of golden are elitist pricks who think of everyone after them as tiders and NRPers, or call them felinid ERPers if theyre actually better at roleplaying than them. It’s very apparent once you start to notice it and it makes me sick.
Im not saying any specific names, because this is a serverwide problem. This server hates new players, period. There’s nothing in it that even remotely assists anyone who joined recently, other than mentors maybe? Thats not even close to enough. Especially when the very people who need them have yet to figure out how to mhelp anyways.
I cried when I left that round. I’m not even exaggerating or joking or anything, I really did. Because I don’t remember how golden was like. And this is enough for me to never, ever be truly considered a true beestation player.
I think it’s time for me to take a break from this game. Might do one of these things were you ask an admin to ban you for some time. So, see you in a week or so. I’m out.
