A series of invasions is not the issue. A series of invasions taking place in real time simultaneously is dogpiling, and it is the topic of the thread. I'm not attempting to defend Vryassu, I'm trying to use that very recent example as evidence that the current system does not promote good story telling. It promotes stress on the players. If Vryassu was acting in a way that was not indicitative of fair play it should have been brought to the admins to be sorted out. The TJE wanted to RP, even if Vryassu did not. We just didn't want to feel as if the entire board's only goal was to drive us from the map.
