"Piss us off IC and we'll take it out on you OOC."
That's cool, but that's the UCM doing a random thread and doesn't have anything to do with the above. If anything, it proves my point.
"They did something jerkish so we must respond in kind! OOC MUST BE MET WITH OOC"
There's nothing to admit. When your faction is more catch all, you're going to get more members. More members means more invasions you can pile up. More invasions piled up means more stress for the lesser major factions who are trying to play the game for the fun it entails, but are met with OOC vendettas.
You are the only person to have answered my question without resorting to "It's how the game is played, get over it." And I thank you for that. That's a perfect reason to have multiple invasions. Folks don't get a lot of time to write, and rather then force them to sit out because of rules they should be included.
But on that same side, that same belief that folks should be allowed to have fun. What about the other side? What about the side that's no longer having fun? Why do people need to be punished OOC? Isn't there a better way we, as writers before anything else, find an answer that's fun for everyone?
