ehm no... its not quite like that.

its like your regular server thingy.. sure, some rp-diehards really act like the rp-serverquote, but for normal we want to play the game as you do. most roleplayers are annoyed by diehards, discussing there new robe while the rest of the groub just wants to kill the damn boss.

example... shattered halls yesterday:

RP-Diehard 1: "ooooh look, a new recipe for me."
RP-Diehard 2: "ooooh, i'm also an enchanter."
RP-Diehard 2: "do you want the recipe or can i take it?"
RP-Diehard 1: "you know were friends since 'blabla', i would leave it to you."
RP-Diehard 2: "naaa, you can take it. i dont want it that hard."
RP-Diehard 1: "me neither."
RP-Diehard 2: "so you take it?"
RP-Diehard 1: "no, you may have it."
Warrior: "GOD DAMN IT, JUST TAKE YOUR DICE AND ROLL FOR THAT THING."
RP-Diehard 1: "now thats what i was going to say."
Warrior: "yeah whatever."

true dat!

BUT: i would be happy if the people in goldshire (or as we call it in germany: "goldhain" xD) would cyber. nooo, they jump around like a bunch of wounded dogs and scream all over elwynn: "LAAAAAAAAAAAAWL KEEL TEH HAWGAR!1!! LOLOLOLOL!" its more annoying than lesbian cyberelves.

Yea, same on ED. All the "RP" you'll ever find is just cybering. Wich is what I ment by icky. How ever, people always spell properly, one good side effect of RP realms. A nice one to.

RP is improvised acting, simply put. It's not about yelling "DIE IN THE NAME OF THE LIGHT, YOU SCUM!" to every mob you see, unless of course you're playing a lunatic who does just that. But that's rare. Also, most roleplayers simply ignore it when someone's "breaking the fourth wall", and are annoyed by those who can't do that and rant about it all the time, especially if they're doing it out loud, which isn't exactly any less immersion-breaking.

On topic, me likes, that's probably how the gold sellers actually look.

Oh, and hi.

:lol:

A nice one, although RPers are rarely annoyed by immersion-breaking these days. RP is quite rare to find.

As for the common misconception that RP is all about your "Thous" and "Thys" in WoW, its anything but. I've never heard anyone actually speak like that. There are war-cries, but few and far between, and definately not with every pull. You'll get an occasional "For the Light!" or "For the Naaru!" from Draenei (just type /charge, you get the same thing!), maybe a few "For the Goddess!" from Night Elves.

I wished I could find a good wiki post about it but I'm to fat and lazy.

4th wall is a term used in theatre, basically the actors should act as if the room that they are standing in on stage is a complete room. (It's not it just has 3 walls otherwise the audience couldn't see the actors) So the actors imagen a 4th wall to make the play more real.

And there you go...

RP servers aren't really as different anymore I play on Silverhand and back when I was leveling I found some real serious rp situations that weren't cybering...but now it's pretty rare to find something...
Some people do RP in instances though and I'll tell you this...apparently it can take a long time...one of my guildmates was stuck in a dead strat run like that...back when it was still a 10 man and it was the slowest thing she'd ever seen...took almost 2 hours.

Well in WoW the RP is kinda ''sucky'' for the following reasons...

a) You can't kill a member of your faction... so (lets say) you find some uber enchant recipe and a Blacksmith needed it just for selling... the only thing you can do is a mighty /taunt or start spamming hate tells which he doesn't care since it doesn't affect him in any way since /ignore exists... so if you could kill people of your faction that would make it more fun/interesting... besides no jackasses would steal loot.

Example:

RP 1: What do you want? Haven't you bothered long enough scum?
RP 2: I go whatever I please weakling!

And so on... insult and insult..

So it's kinda lame seeing 10000 insults and not a single scratch lol if you understand me
Now if you say ''then the 70's would ''conquer'' Goldshire and no one would be able to ever go there..''
Well guards are for something.

b) You can't chat with enemy faction : That's one of the big thing I HATED about WoW... comon can't you learn other languages? Is your character a dumbass? I was told one of the reasons this was made is because the devs didn't wanted the ppl to hate tell each other so constant ppl would quit ... I don't know if thats true but I really hope not... I mean what the hell ignore is for...So anyway It would add emotion when fighting enemy faction and in Battlegrounds... for sure...

Now make no mistake.... if there's one thing I enjoyed the most about WoW.. was the RP... even it had this obstacles I enjoyed it.. now I think it would be way more fun/interesting with the things I said above..

My Opinion

Peace
There are some things that all the courage in the world cannot stand against.

I don't see why this has anything to do with RP.

Example:

RP 1: What do you want? Haven't you bothered long enough scum?
RP 2: I go whatever I please weakling!

And so on... insult and insult..

See, this is where most people who are clueless about roleplay take the wrong turn. Roleplay in a static enviroment such as WoW, relies heavily upon players respecting each other. Fights can be duelled, or when inside a city emoted, but the emote fight will never go anywhere if both parts agree on who wins and who looses. Purely a matter of respect.

b) You can't chat with enemy faction : That's one of the big thing I HATED about WoW... comon can't you learn other languages? Is your character a dumbass? I was told one of the reasons this was made is because the devs didn't wanted the ppl to hate tell each other so constant ppl would quit ... I don't know if thats true but I really hope not...

It's to prevent emote spamming and insults being thrown around cross-faction.

And do you seriously think a human could ever speak Taurahe? Or troll? Gutterspeak? Nah, I'd say humans can't, because they lack stuff in their throats and such. Anatomy differences and so on.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to speak to hordies myself, I just don't see it as very valid RP.

Peace out. :D

Loved the comic too, even though your roleplayers are actually breaking the roleplaying policy. >_>
