I want to discuss the response level related to Wizards for the crew.
Story-time for why this thread exists :
In a recent round, a wizard spawned with one sec, one acting hos, an acting cap and one cmo.
They started talking about wanting to hijack shuttle, and where openly built for mass murder (combat armor, destruction apprentice, mjolnir, fireball)
I ahelped admins to know, just in case, if I as a chef could go and try to hunt the wizard due to how powerful these people are, especially on an actual low pop.
I was told no, that i should flee and escape/preserve my own life and only act in self defence unless I get deputized. Wizard promptly killed all remaining heads and sec, and then started hijacking, with no one really fighting them while they ran around the place, and having already killed the main “fighting force” able to distribute weapons and rally the crew against him. Everyone was helpless as they fireballed the shuttle and used their mjolnir against whoever was in there.
So, wizard should only be fought in self-defence, a normal crewmember can’t hunt them and it is solely a security job (unless deputized if it makes sense IC)
But, I find that completely stupid ! Wizard is a round ending threat who more often than not will murderbone completely freely and hijack shuttle. It is completely comparable to threats like xenomorphs and blob - antagonists so powerful everyone needs to rally and fight against at all costs to not let them run rampant.
Wizards are NOT balanced to fight only sec, no matter how many seccies there are. They are balanced for fighting a full crew !
I fully believe wizard should be a threat seen alike a blob/xenomorphs - everyone can prepare and get weapons and even actively hunt him due to the massive threat he poses.
I am making this thread due to being in opposition to admin stance and wanting to make it known, but I wanna hear your opinions on this - do you guys think this staff ruling should change ? should wizard be nerfed in consequence ?
Or is it a proper way to approach this situation and a good thing ?
