After a long time I return, looking for a match

Thu Sep 16, 2021 11:20 pm by GrandAkumaShogun

Hello all, I would firstly like to apologize for the long periods that I've been away from here. Been taking time away to focus on my mental health but I think I'm ready to return and looking for a match or two to get back into things. All three of my boys, Takeichi Mori, Takeshi Kawai, and Imai Cosmo are up for matches. If you want I can link their profiles so you don't have to search through the roster page. Anyone interested feel free to hmu through private messages. Hope to hear from …

Uh, but no seriously I'm feeling pretty good lately and would love to throw my hat back in the ring. If anyone wants to wrestle my losers let me know, I have a few now. Just made a new one in fact.

So, one issue that plagues AFW often, is the issues of player slowdowns. These things happen, people get overwhelmed at work, or with school or with personal issues, or just burnout and writers block, We, (the mod team) understand that and deal with similar.

But one thing we've noticed more and more lately is these slowdowns affecting title matches, and I've been wondering about ways we could possibly assist with that, without heavily impacting players freedom and choices.

One suggestion I've thought of, that I wanted to run by the board, is the possibility of Mods directly stepping in when a player becomes inactive and stalls a title match. Mod's already have the ability to end matches in someones favor if a player vanishes, this would be a step further than that.

Basically, this idea would involve the mods working with the champion and challenger before their match to set up a proper script for the match, and then if one party becomes unable to post for longer than some pre-agreed upon period, a mod will step in and follow the script in their place until they are able to return.

In cases where someone simply does not return or clearly cannot be active, we may call an audible and put the other, more active, player over for the belt so that we aren't constantly vacating belts every year.

While I'm aware this might impact some peoples control over their story and character and they might dislike this, this also would have zero effect on those who remain active for their title reigns.

How do you feel about this suggestion? If you have suggestions of your own, please DM me on the Discord.

Having proper well-thought scripts for the title belts is paramount for the well being of the AFW universe, so my vote is yes. I would like mods getting involved in the process as long as everyone has some creative freedom to pursue the story they want, as long as it respects the site rules of course.

Just to be clear and transparent on this: The mods would assist in scripting them match to what the players want, and only would get directly involved if a player cannot be involved, and then our involvement would follow the script as written.

So this would not cripple players creative freedoms and only be put into effect when a player drops off the map, so to speak. If you're a reliable and active poster during your title run, you'll never need this option.

I have long since maintained that when a player takes hold of a title they are being given a responsibility to drive roleplay and should uphold a certain level of activity. Belts and accolades are here as a means in which to promote the story. There is no innate value in holding a belt out of character because what we do here is not nor should ever be considered competitive. We are here to play together and belts should be used to help elevate stories and stakes not just be hoarded for the sake of saying a character has it.

Players in big matches should have planned finishes, and those matches should have expectations of availability associated with them. I feel it's reasonable that these "deadlines" can be extended in case of sudden unexpected issues arising, but they need to be communicated. I am guilty of going dark from time to time, just like anyone else, but we should be striving to keep an open line of communication to just check-in and not hold up progress for other players. Sometimes some feuds get stalled for ages. If it is just between the two players, that is fine, take your time, but when it involves future plans with others or belts that are here for everyone, a greater degree of care should be out in place.

I think it's important to keep belt stories moving, so the idea of keeping the mods involved to help facilitate that sounds good to me. If someone can't post anymore or goes. Missing without a trace, there should be a means to move things towards a planned finish. If the player set to win is the one that goes missing, there should be a plan b to change the result to end things neat and tidy.

As a new champion of a formerly vacated belt I'd say yes in at least helping with getting a good amount of candidates and at least controlling whom exactly would be a #1 Contender. Something like candidate matches.

You know, we do vacate a LOT of belts.

and we rarely ever do Contender matches.

We should do more contender matches

For me someone who is completing in title match must been fine with either a mod taking over or allowed the other player to use their character to finish the match, especially when the title changing hands.

How do you feel about this suggestion?

I think it is important to mention (and for the sake of offering a contrary opinion) but mods are also people, too! If there own plates of activity are full and/or facing strife that prevents them from posting then you run into the same problem.

As a fairly long lurker, the mods are great here, for sure. However, I am just concerned that they shouldn't have to shoulder the burden. Yes, the health of this site is promoted through mod work, but how much is too much to ask of them?

Something to think about, anyway.

I would say the idea of keeping consistent lore for title matches is good and fun. If the mods find it fun to help with those by all means, don't let my earlier concern prevent this from implemented. However, I might suggest that maybe the champion and the challenger, on their own, outline a script for the match. Then they could submit it to a mod as an fyi or use it as a contingency and send it along with a request to a mod to help continue the match? That way the mods don't have to risk feeling burned out or overwhelmed.

But again, do not let me speak for the mods. I just wanted to offer a concern that may have not been considered.

Agreeing with folks above, having held the tension tag titles wayback I recall not having any input or help from mods in finding stuff to set up and mostly made my own way. So having a reliable fallback for the titles would be great
