PostSubject: Discussion about teams   Wed Sep 11, 2013 9:22 pm

So I was just wondering about teams. Since they play a major part in the story I just wanted to know if it would be a thing.

The mods and I are thinking about doing a Beacon initiation thing if everyone was interested. Not sure what that would intail, but it might be a thing if everyone is up for it.

Teams would be fun, leads for more co-operation and actual role playing among others and not just them "joining" your journey randomly.

So I'll pose this question to you guys.

Would you rather pair up yourself or pair up with someone randomly?

I think it would be better to get paired randomly.

Teams sound great, I'm fine with it being more or less random.

Should schedule a day for initiation, maybe Friday? All RP before that could just be idle fluff, testing the waters with our characters interacting with other characters.

As for being random, we could be notified of who we'll run into as partners beforehand and meet eachother along the way. That'd be interesting.

I'm thinking if we do a big event like this, it will be over the weekend or at least over several days, so everyone has time to participate! We'll release more details on how everything will work soon.

That timing. I probably won't have computer access for the entire weekend. I might miss the initiation, which could be a bit problematic. It'd be great if it could run onto tuesday.

I like the random team idea. Would be fun to be paired based on how the mods or someone see the characters interacting

What about characters like mine that are not students, will they be paired or will something else be done with them?

I just posted to the mods about non-Beacon members. We are possibly going to be doing a tournament, and it would be possible to include non-Beacon members in an event such as that. Alternatively, we may do a second, side by side event for all characters not in the Beacon event.

Personally I don't think doing something like this would be the best way to set up teams. A big event to get people into teams would only exclude people who miss it. Newcomers would be unable to (Or find it difficult to) join a team, which is a pretty big part of the appeal of the RWBY universe IMO.

Also, having a big event end with either a big, messy, slow thread with everyone doing the initiation at once (Though if managed perfectly it could go really well), or with a bunch of separate threads for individual groups of 2/4. In the second case, the main thing making the event an event is the time constraint part of it, which is a completely negative part and just builds elitism ("My character is better than yours because I was in the initiation event") and like I said, exclude new members.

A better alternative would be to have some sort of system to put 2, 4, 100, whatever, characters together to do some sort of challenge similar to the initiation from RWBY. Basically this removes the time constraint on the (Possible) event, without changing the concept of it. Sure, it wouldn't exactly be canon, but when transferring a show's system to an RP forum some sacrifices must be made.

I agree with Snow Cloak, some people would miss out, and new people in the RP joining after it wouldn't even get the chance.

I think this is the best idea for initiation yet. we could have a board in which people post that they're ready for initiation, then the mods group them up and give them a challenge. This removes both the time constraint and make initiation threads much faster and efficient.

Is there possibly any way to maybe do something in a chat room, instead? I feel that initiation would be somewhat fast-paced and a traditional thread wouldn't be able to handle too many people at once, even if it was well moderated.
