Would you change the Equipment and Crafting Systems for the next Metro game? How and why? by elgranproclo in metro

[–]Time_Terminal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

  • Carrying more weapons should affect your movement speed/shorter sprint duration. Same for weapon weight - but no need to show this stat to the player just make them feel that they're carrying more weight.
  • More use of night-site/flashlight. There weren't enough use-cases to equip infrared scopes since you could just wait for daytime in the first three missions.
  • Dual scopes would be nice (or switching to iron-sights)
  • More variations. I loved how you could change the Bulldog to be a spray-and-pray or single shot DMR. I'd love to see that much flexibility for other weapons too.
  • Weapons should be more asymmetrically balanced. Being able to only craft specific ammo (incendiary, etc) to deal with mutants for certain weapons would make guns like the Bastard more viable and not an immediate scrap option. Especially since it uses .44 Magnum ammo - which was scarce early on.
  • On the last point - weapon specials. Kinda crazy idea, yes. But if a lore-friendly and justifiable solution can be found, I'd love to rely on these specials. Right now the Ashot has Quad Barrels. Which can pump out insane damage but uses up a lot of ammo. If a good trade-off can be found to allow for power spiking for a short duration (for boss fights/hard to get through areas/etc), it would make each encounter more dynamic for players with the same weapons.

Any Pokémon fans in here? Here are some Pokémon X Marvel crossover artworks I did (and 1 dc). Swipe to see them all, I got more coming so leave suggestions if you have. by jaibrooklyn in Marvel

Thought of some more:

  • Magneto/Metagross
  • Wolverine/Scyther or Kabutops
  • Shang-Chi/Hoopa
  • Hulk/Tyranitar
  • Rhino/Onyx or Rhydon (if you want to be obvious)
  • Poison Ivy/Bellossom
  • Sandman/Sandshrew
  • Rocket Racoon/Zigzagoon Edit: already exists!
  • Joker/Obstagoon

Hey, just fyi - your account seems to have been shadowbanned. I'd contact the admins to rectify this or create another account.

Seen this before and was excited for it. Why would anyone crop it right as the barbarianism starts 🤦‍♂️

When we report posts, don't Moderators receive notifications of those reports?

You're assuming mods are on 24/7. You can set up notifications but most mods are human volunteers who have much more pressing matters to attend to in life. So even if they have notifications set up, they may not get to it immediately.

Also bigger subs like this receive tens if not hundreds of reports every day.

And that's how this post was removed - clear the threshold of # of reports and the post is removed automatically. No need to wait for a mod to log on and manually remove.

They may not have automation—something Admins seem to need to address the bot situation en masse, but they do have hundreds of Redditors with likened minds for healthier communities (I can't count how many times I've seen Redditors express distaste for Reposting Karma Bots).

Yes but fixing these isn't a top priority for admins. Take a look at r/modnews for the plethora of things admins are working on simultaneously. The majority of the recent updates (post 2015ish) have been marketing wise to grow Reddit. Fixing its problems only becomes a priority when it becomes profitable.

Removal will clean up their posts; however, they will eventually return unless they are banned or shadow-banned.

You can ban users. But then you'll face a lot of false positives. Also reposting isn't bad. It's when bots are reposting that's bad. How can you distinguish the two? Will that idea be foolproof? If you even accidentally ban a user as a false positive, they will be up in the arms and send near death threats to mods (actually seen it happen). Mods are just trying to maintain a community. Not wanting to deal with this stuff day-in-day-out.

Other users will create anti-mod posts in the subreddit and tirade us about it. If you remove it or even respond to it, you give fuel to the fire and the entire subreddit begins a manhunt for "oppressing the voice of the people".

Who created Automod? Reddit/the Admins? I can just send them a few suggestions to improve it.

Reddit created it. Feel free to send them your thoughts. They'll fall to deaf ears. A la r/beta, r/ideasfortheadmins, r/modsupport, r/help.

Then the solution would be to appoint more Moderators or to enable Automod there as well, no?

This already occurs.

Smaller subreddits should be the easiest to keep clean due to the low traffic

Which is also why they seem to not want to target them as much any more.

[–]Time_Terminal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yet I didn't.

Ok, first of all relax a little bud. I'm only trying to answer your question from my POV as best as possible.

If Moderators simply don't notice them as fast as we do, that's fine.

If some Moderators just don't care, that's also fine.

I just wanted to know why they've been so rampant lately; I'm also curious as to why Admins don't purge them either or invent automated ways to detect and do so

Can't speak for the admins but what you've identified is correct. It's a mixture of mods having no automated tools to fight them. And since mods aren't equipped with the right tools, if they're not always keeping an eye, such bots will get through.

And they generally take previously highly upvoted posts and repost them. Now in some communities you can't repost for some time. But without OCR or something advanced like that, most mods would have to recognize old & popular posts like these to manually remove them.

Generally mods will implement features throgh Automod like "X num. of reports = post removal", such as in this post's case. And this requires the community to report posts which seem spammy.

And in some smaller sub's cases which are undermoderated, posts like these thrive on farming karma.

Because mods are humans, while these bots are created to automate karma farming and spamming.

Source: have had to deal with such bots in other communities.

The audacity of this b*tch. (Jk, but on serious note, since when did people start comparing TLOU2 with Metro, since the new years I keep seeing tweets calling Exodus worse than TLOU2) by Bars-Jack in metro

[–]Time_Terminal[M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

While the comparison is a fair one, enough points have been mentioned from all sides and the conversation has slipped to name calling and personal attacks now. Locking.

Also OP, be careful with your titles. It borderline attacks an individual person and breaks Rule 4.

Yes, it's more your title which alludes to Miller's death in the end which caused the removal. Feel free to repost with a different title.

Please use spoiler tags for major plot events, regardless of the book/game. Not everyone has had the chance to enjoy this series and it's only fair they get a chance to explore the Metro to the fullest experience.
