@  dr3ad : (01 November 2019 - 10:26 PM)

We updated to 8.2.5 as we had some issues due to Blizzcon today removing 8.2.0 version from their content delivery network and hence half of people getting "Streaming error". We will post new 8.2.5 Wow.exe in couple of minutes, you just need to drag it into your existing RPHTiny/_retail_ folder.

Since the days of the main phase being made OOC and public RP becoming phase focused, could we implement a 24/7 server hosted open world phase that is always advertised as to avoid the countless garbage kingdom phases often ran by dragon RPers, create a hub for the Horde, Alliance and neutral ground, then everything inbetween being wilderness, possibly based in Stranglethorn given it has Bbay for neutrals and both Horde and Alliance settlements throughout. As an alternative and always available, it'd be nice to have a phase rooted in the server to run with the current timeline and has more potential being an open world than the typical kingdom/tavern based small talk RP mostly available.

This could definitely be a good implementation for just finding RP partners or other people for random stuff.

Good suggestion

Although I fear moderating this would sadly be a complete nightmare

Would be fun having a 24/7 thing similar to how mainphase used to be, but the biggest reason Mainphase RP stopped is likely because the server doesn't have the manpower to have someone on constantly to keep things within the lore of Warcraft, and then to also moderate. Unfortunately something like that would end up similar to how PArAgOn works and there would be nothing custom. No housing, extremely splintered RP groups throughout the various maps, etc.

it's been asked for several times, but it's probably not going to happen.

It sounds good on paper, but in practice? I don't see it turning out so well.

How could we moderate things to keep them lore-friendly? Would we ban/suspend people for not wanting to follow the lore? What about custom lore, which I'm sure everyone's characters have to some extent? What's to stop moderators from eventually abusing their powers, like last time with Neuro and Deathwatch?

I would like to see a tighter community, but preferably in a phase we can all agree is good as opposed to the main phase where punishment could be absolute. Of course, that probably won't happen either.

I don't see why we couldn't just treat it like we do retail rp. Someone's trolling just put them on ignore and move on, limit spells if not turn them off entirely, limit scaling to be within a reasonable amount and you have an okay place to roleplay in the downtime. Doesn't have to be moderated, just has to be available. Just like it's not meant to replace phases, it's just meant to be a placeholder for rp. Somewhere as opposed to nowhere.

thats the point of phases, dont you think? everyone has their own server (phase) while RPH is a bigger cluster of microservers that are managed by the community itself. 

the fact that admins don't interact with phase related stuff just goes to show how independent you can be here. honestly the reason why RPH is so full of all kinds of people is because that's what you do - ignore and move on, ban them from your phase and they'll be someone else's business.

maybe someone wants to roleplay with them, maybe they don't. if you don't want to put the effort to organise or join some private RP/guild then you don't deserve to enjoy any kind of good quality public roleplay (which, over 11 years, has never been more than an excuse to lolRP and socialise, rather than have a meaningful experience). 

in short, if you want a placeholder for RP you probably don't care about the quality of RP, just join these custom kingdoms built in flatlands and don't complain.

That's literally what Prologue WoW was and I know A LOT of people who refuse to play on RPH because of the lack on any open world RP.

I fully support this.

Great idea, but I feel as that would be quick to become just as mundane/stagnant as public Rp. Knowing Blizzlike Rp, it doesn't matter how many hubs the world has. (Fel Hammer, Booty Bay, Hammerfall, Goldshire) Players will always want to be in the highest concentration of Rp. With that quality dips, and as a result, people skedaddle. (I don't think there's bad Rp, just characters being in the wrong place.)

If we can find people with the passion and the time to moderate it, this idea will be good to go! 

We could even all work together to make something nice

But that's the point of the post, evidently the OP doesn't mind joining these flatland kingdoms, the problem is when there's nothing hosting, and no one can RP unless they get off their ass and make a phase for themselves, which, granted, can be a lot of work. Or none, if you don't care about the types of people coming in to your phase. The problem being addressed wasn't that people don't want phases, it was that people want somewhere to go when no other phase is open.

Personally I like both public, and private roleplay. I am involved with both. When I make a new character, I introduce them to public roleplay to get a feel for how I would like them to act, then when I am comfortable with that, I move into a private setting if it becomes available.

i get what you mean, generally speaking it's a waste of time to roleplay in public phases especially on a new character, might as well ask announce for people to whisper you to setup some quick private rp in mainphase

Unfortunately the server mods are not interested in creating such a place because such a place will need to be policed in terms of overscaling/trolling/ etc and offenders will need to be forced out of said hub.

I have, in the past, tried to start up a 'just walking around' phase with 0 work put into it. We often get myself, one other normal guy and then we get Sasuke, DMC Dante, and an incognito troll futa. Or some such.

 

If I could bring an idea to your attention, why don't you, like, start a 'walking around no-dm' phase with 0 work put into it? Unfortunately, you yourself shall be needed to kick sasuke and his co-dick-comparators right fucking out.

As said above, I would've intended it to be treated as retail RP, it's simply always advertised, just an open world and people can do as they please, if people disrupt RP, scale massively, it can be done in any phase, just report the player and it'd be handled like every other incident, it's not too complicated.
