# 1 Ghost-like BOs.
01-30-2010, 03:11 AM
You know, I saw some threads complaining in Open Beta and i probably shoulda piped up back then.

I really do not like or care for this new "pass-through" mechanic of making BO's intangible. i personally had no problems with BO's being solid in both Closed and Open Beta (and, I might add, I didn't read any complaints about in in CB, but I am not omniscent and may've missed a post).

I am all for game play being primary over immersion-breaking, but this is rather silly. Being able to walk-through BO's is silly. It makes them feel less human and more like EMH's. It reminds me they are not real, so in a sense, it is immersion-breaking. If you had small corridors, then I could agree to this mechanic, but you don't; you have large ones partly JUST for this solid-BO mechanic.

Now, I can make silly screenshots of my character "inside" my BO's or have them all bunched up when we beam down (they are not spread out as before).

This whole intangibility thing is nonsense. Put them back the way they were before. Make them "real" tangible items we can care for. The way they are now, adds a dimension of "I could care less for them" now.

Uh... Scuzbutt... some of us play for the RP aspect as much as anything else, especially in a universe as rich as the ST one. For decent RP, you want immersion, for immersion it helps if you can't walk through people...

If we wanted RL, we'd turn the PC off and go outside.

Stop whining about useless garbage like "I feel like my bo's are less human because I can walk through them"

Get a life and and interact with REAL people from time to time and maybe you'll see that this isn't real life nor are the characters real.
I simply decided to take the more appropriate response, and reported this post under the 'rude/harassment' catagory.

WOOT! lol I been reported for actually having a REAL life

If you want things in a GAME to be more real, then try LARPing, oh wait, you'd probably complain that you can't "actually" beam anywhere and that your cardboard conny class cutouts don' "actually" get you into space. LOL

every person logging in here is REAL, and has a life. Abuse is uncalled for just because their 'pursuit of happiness' doesn't agree with your own personal ideal 'life'. Since you have no respect for Role Players, why are you playing a Role Playing game? Since you already have a wonderful, full and active, "RL", why are you playing in a sandbox full of Role Playing, virtual 'nerds'?

PEOPLE DESERVE RESPECT. You have none. And yes, you should be reported, not that Cryptic will act against you, but to be honest, I do not want you here either. I will be /ignoring you next I log in, will that make your day, Troll?

Well I do like things to be realistic. A team of 5 should be able to hold a doorway for instance.

But while playing on day one and first going to sector space i was surrounded my so many ship i had trouble moving away. Granted that's probably not the norm everyone thats been in beta rushing through the tutorial at the same time lol.

I guess i have never seen myself go through a bof so i thought there was collision.

Why do people like you even post on the forums? That's it; I just have no idea what you actually add here.

WoW forums are this way --> I'm 12 years old and like to be a douche.

Or just sit on the internet alone in your house, interacting with people you will never meet, never know and are pretty much virtual.

I can understand you... but as captain I'm polite enough to not barge into people anyway - so I never have to "phase through" them.

I'm actually really likeing the BOff team mechanic and already my science officer (her first bridge officer form the Khitomer) has taken to arguing with his liberated Borg captain about her "non regulation make-up and overall ghastly appearance". Unfortuantely for the aging scientist, she likes the way she looks...

Point being, it has not stopped me developing an attachment for the characters...
