Game Discussion / Re: Raz you need to resign.
« on: February 19, 2020, 01:43:52 am »

After reading all these replies it's sad to see that I'm not the only one whose experienced this situation. It really saddens me.

I'd like to present a counter-argument to this post, and I'll willingly say that I was the yellow censor in that second screenshot. I was kinda playing around with the 'weirdos' thing but I see how that can be hurtful and I apologize. By the way, the last two messages were *not* related to you roleplaying in the grounds, that was me complaining about being sick in real life to my friends I was sitting with.

I think it's unfair to assume that those of us who don't like roleplaying in the grounds (not just the grounds, specifically the spawn area) are new players. I've been here since 2011 and I know how the "old" FH worked. Yes, it was okay and don't get me wrong, it still is okay to roleplay wherever you want! But frowned upon? Yeah, generally it is because that specific area of the grounds is what we tend to use as an area of casual conversation and, sometimes, RP advertisement. Again, you're perfectly allowed to roleplay right there, nothing says you can't! Just maybe expect some scrutiny from the players around you when you're sending long paragraphs and clogging the chat flow of one of the only populated areas in the game. I know the grounds chat is often dead, but I remember there being a good conversation flow at the time you had sent the long paragraphs into the chat. It was just annoying to some of us users and we have the right to ask you to do it elsewhere. I didn't see any harassment in the screenshots you provided but if that did happen, that's not okay either.

Again, I mean this in all due respect and I do apologize if my comments made you feel upset or uncomfortable in-game. I'm sure I could've worded it differently but I believe in the moment I was just annoyed that you had chosen to send large paragraphs of roleplay into an area of which we have chosen to be casual discussion. I know you said you haven't been online recently, and that's okay! You may not have known and my apologies for not taking that into account, but in the future, FH has many different maps and most of them go relatively unused! You can roleplay wherever you want but sometimes it's still good to take others into account.

I accept your apology, and understand where you stand on this discussion. I was not upset by what was said, but more confused and concerned as to why an activity that is (or was) so common in FH is now getting such negative attention. Trust me when I say these screenshots I've provided were just 2 different instances that have happened involving the issue. I never took the time to get screenshots of all the cases that have happened around different parts of the FH game.

When it comes to roleplaying in the Grounds, I'm well aware that there's casual conversation going on near the Lonely Cave portal. Because of that, I've tried my best to keep my distance so I don't disturb others around me with my walls of text.
HOWEVER, I have one or two friends who want to park themselves near that location to do roleplays, even if I've tried convincing them to move their character away so our RP posts don't get lost in chat spam.  ((Beleive me, I try to avoid it so the chat spam does not get in the way of the posts I need to read)) Why they want to roleplay closer to all the casual conversation, I don't know. Maybe they like listening to the conversations while roleplaying. Maybe there's a chance others will join in, since I once suggested that if other players see an open roleplay they too will follow. I don't know; I don't speak for them.

THEN there are the times we do move away to another location, other players follow us to either listen in on the roleplay OR to disrupt us. One of those screenshots was from a time we were away from the casual conversation crowd, but some random players decided to come into our range to complain. It's just those cases of people seeing a roleplay and they want to disrupt it for no reason. There were times we were in other less populated maps doing our roleplays and some randos come out of nowhere to ask us why we're roleplaying in local chat/public maps.
No matter where we go it happens. That's the point I was wanting to bring up. Why is it frowned upon in local chat at all? I don't see why it's a problem, because it was never a problem before. As others have suggested, the game has changed since it was first released to what it is now. The community has changed, and not in a way I was hoping for.

Thanks again for your input. I try to steer clear of that spot in the grounds, while still remaining close, but not close enough to disrupt anyone up near the entrance.

Game Discussion / Is Roleplaying in Local Chat Frowned Upon? Since When?
« on: December 06, 2019, 12:26:46 am »
It's been a long time since I've posted anything on this forum, but I gotta ask this since I've been dealing with this in the game itself.

Whenever me and some friends do some roleplaying in the public maps, especially the Grounds, some players have make objections or rude comments about it. They either tell us to roleplay in party/group chat, or go to a private map. We often times suggest they block us, but instead they'd rather harass us and make a fuss over it.

I'm sorry WHAT?!

Since when was roleplaying in Local chat a big deal, and since when did players start fussing about it? First, people complain that there are no roleplays going on in the game, yet when one comes up in Local Chat they want it to stop?! Many local chat roleplays went on in old Bonfire Island, and no one batted an eye. Same with Fluorite Plains. Now when a local chat roleplay is happening, people complain? What has this community come to?

Some players aren't into roleplay, and I get it. If it bothers you to see a roleplay going on in local you can do one of the following.

1.) Block the players temporarily
2.) Move away from their location
3.) Ignore it
4.) Turn off Local Chat

To me, harassing others for roleplaying in local could be discouraging other players, possibly driving them away from this game. Most of the time these players who complain about local chat roleplays are the same people who complain that nothing really happens in FH. Which way do you want it?
What are your thoughts on this?

I've been waiting to hear something like this for a long time! I was on earlier today making some changes to my character after I read about the new character customization. Sure there were a few bugs, but some have been taken care of, and I'm sure others will be taken care of soon.
I can't wait to see future updates with more added features to the game. Maybe there will be new species models in the future?

Game Discussion / Re: What was old Feral Heart like?
« on: May 01, 2019, 01:52:45 am »
It was more lively and active.

I joined the community and game back in 2012. When I first joined the game had more players, so there was much more going on. More roleplays, more social interaction, more drama, more talking and chatting. There was never a dull moment.
What I miss about the old Feral Heart the most is how much more active it was with players, and a bigger diversity of open roleplays. You didn't have to join a Discord or a website to be part of a fun roleplay. All you had to do was become part of a group and go from there.

Sometimes I like to look through the old topics of the forums to look back on the old times. Looking back on those old in-game topics of the Game Discussion can show you the most talked about discussions and give you an idea of what it was like.

Pretty much everyone who posted before me has explained what old Feral Heart was like very well.
