Hey guys!
So, I'm just curious: I've been kind of playing a LOT of Halo CE in the last few days and I can't help but notice like...all the RP servers are gone. What happened? lol

They have been gone for a few years now. I guess there just aren't enough players who RP anymore.

ahh there was a server, with that today, wooh it was full, I think that's what he called it, role playing, he said he didn't host much do to that halo online bull, fill's the server with them, and that time thing\life.

Oh.

I definitely remember the ones on the Zerowing map. Those were always my favorite. x)

Perhaps some day. Unfortunately it's finals time which means massive amounts of papers. ALMOST done though...After the holidays are over I'd totally be up for that.

The few of us that rp are either gone off of ce to rp elsewhere, moved to text rps, host only private events, or have died. Best luck is to find a rp clan and hang with them (self plug: Nova Genesis for serious rp, if you dont mind having fun with a consistent storyline)

actually, i was a RP player since 2010 when it's popular with RPG Maps or RP Nick maps. Yes, RP was gone even my friends too. most of them said that. RP is already not fun when there is no new big maps (Opsy didn't finish his RPG_beta8)with decent structure and perfect to rp or even machinima. i even have my own journal about my rp story until it was dead.

Edit : actually, if you want a RP server. i guess i have spare for you. just pm me

Mhm. The RP community is definitely dying. Well, in Halo at least.
Most have moved to other games, or even forums if I may say.

Holy crap Nostalgia. I remember playing RP servers all the time when I was like 14. Fun times. That was like 9 years ago, Sadly all the RP servers are dead. Garry's mod is the game you want if you like to Role Play.

I understand insurgency, or squad, or PR but Halo?

Because its not always a spartan. The kiddies that pretend they're Spartan-IIs are the unimaginative ones, but the IIIs and IVs have flexibility, whereas you also have marines, ODSTs, and varying other species to work with

Roger that.



Also flying bricks beat flexibility any day of the week.



And you all need girlfriends.


Like srsly, there are women on the net willing to settle for 2 legs and a scrotal image. Go get'em!

Is RP officially dead on CE? Is anyone planning on doing a private RP event or something soon? I miss the days when I was like 13 and I could join a bunch of different servers, all RP ones. I RPed a lot. lol

If anything, why not just start making a bunch of unrelated scenery and then when you're done, beg someone to make an RP BSP and throw your tags in it

Am teaching myself how to paint bumpmaps and specular with Blender

My urban themed map would probably be a good RP map. It's leaning that way anyway with what we have planned. Tell me what constitutes an RP map and I'll see if I can incorporate that into the map.

There is nothing I can do about the lack of players though.

Large, detailed, you could maybe live somewhere in there, bad for regular gameplay.

Plus there was always an 'ending', like in one of the RPG betas having the Halo switch deep inside that blows everything up.

Honestly having a fancy bsp is not the only requirement in order to create a successful role playing environment. Yes it is a crucial factor but if the game you are playing doesn't have the necessary features and systems to support even the most basic role playing features such as VOIP e.t.c then your going to need a really really good imagination to get into the world of bigass or whatever you are playing.

PR:BF2, Insurgency, Squad, ArmaIII all utilise varying degrees of mechanics targeted specifically some might say to enhance realism and squad based gameplay.

Halo has NONE of this which is why I feel it's basically impossible to create a fun/successful role playing map. (Within MP)

I think it was the giant empty BSPs...

Emphasis on huge and empty..

It definitely put me off from RPing in halo. They're too big and too boring
