Let’s say there was only one engineer, who was the Chief Engineer, and the only thing he did was a very basic SM setup and literally nothing else. When people called for an engineer to fix the bombed medbay, he did nothing. He didn’t set up solars or the turbine, even after the SM delammed. People were out of power, and the round suffered because of it. Obviously he would be punished, right?
So why then can the HoP get by with ONLY doing the ID stuff, and ONLY for the first 5-10 minutes of the round? HoP has the extremely important job of opening slots so people don’t greytide, but at least half the time he either does fuck all, or JUST does the ID stuff, and for not very long. But he gets no punishment. Imagine if the HoS only arrested people, and didn’t let them out, or the CMO’s solution to harm was to stuff them in a cryo and call it a day? Every other head role gets punished for not understanding or trying to fulfill ALL of their responsibilities. Opening Job Slots is literally only 1 of 2 (3 if you count petting Ian) things you actually are supposed to as HoP and it has a huge impact on the round.
I mean how many times have you seen a situation where one of a job went SSD roundstart and the other guy got killed at some point? HoP is supposed to fix that, but he never does. That needs to change.
