@crimson_eagle: Heyyy, an OG. You should come back and join us. Things are kicking off these days and from the looks of your character he would fit right in to the scene nowadays.

@hawkshade:LOL, first time I've been referred to as an OG. I'm really tempted, but I don't want to make any commitments yet. That and I have no idea how any of my characters could fit in. Last time I actually did an RPG with others was KoV (IX?). I don't even remember

@tessa_callahan: The temptation is real. Technically I was here last January, I created a character and wanted to jump back into the game with him, but I ended up getting sidetracked and nothing flourished. Another RPG regret. But I have a few ideas for like two characters. Who knows, maybe I'll just dip my toe in the RPG water for like one story.

Of everything and everyone I'm nostalgic for I think it's teams I'm nostalgic for the most. They were awesome. They had the best threads, the best storylines, awesome behind the scenes stuff, the works.

@hawkshade: Yup! They made for easy chemistry building, easy feud-building, easy story-building, easy worldbuilding. And not just easy but comprehensive, and cohesive. And it built out such great dynamics, so quickly.

I wouldn't mind taking part in a team if they got back in flow.

It's kinda weird that it became so hard for them to sustain, because they're one of those essential elements in comic books, and on CV that contributes to a comic booky feel.
No "submit a writing sample" though! -_____-

@hawkshade: I agree, every time I think of CV nostalgia I think of teams. The heroes, the anti-heroes, and the villain teams. The best parts were the crossover battles.

@crimson_eagle: Yeah that stuff was awesome. My formative months on the vine were on one of those teams and I miss the old team stuff. Right now I have a small but successful hero team with four people and I hope a villain team springs up eventually.

@feral_nova: Oh my God it was the worst thing! Especially (and I say this a lot) because often you'd get asked to join a team, and then they'd stillask you for a sample! Like...Hello? You're the one asking me? No, that's okay, I really don't want it that badly.

I used to just tell people "Arturia isn't really a team type person." Which was true, but also a handy excuse.

@hawkshade:-______- I'm not strictly a villain!

Although, maybe I'll keep Noble around after all, when the job is done.

I think the only time I ever asked for a sample writing was when I knew the person was new and they were asking for "training". I know Sha had a team strictly for newbies and I believe (she can correct me if I'm wrong) we had them give a sample of writing, but aside from that, I don't think I was a part of a team that REQUIRED sample writing. I don't think WAL ever did that... I think.... I can't remember tbh ten years is too many years to remember LOL

Actually I remember Andy wanting me to join ICE Dragons and I said sure but he wanted a sample of my writing, then I declined saying I didn't want to split Nova's attention from WAL LOL

I got onto a major team through sheer bluster...no one knew I was a newbie, but they assumed I was one of the Big Names' alts. I don't remember what the team was, but it was fun.

Mercy used her amazing mod powers and figured me out so fast LOL and I STILL denied it even when she PMed me about it LMAO ah, good times.

But I just wanted to have fun and see if I could get the same reaction to my posts if people didn't know it was me. I'm insecure and need people to consistently tell me my posts are decent :P

I remember prep being a big thing in Prime. During the LoS/JLI conflict we were constantly probing each other's bases for information. You'd go to their base and attack them, fight a little bit and fall back so you had some IC information about what their powers were. People would hold back some of their powers and deliberately use less than their full strength to conceal information from the other team. (ICly of course; OOCly we all read each others bios and knew.) It was cool.

@hawkshade: I remember one time Nova waltzed right into the LoS just to chat with some peeps because she was friends with them LOL Even thought we lacked "real" location threads in Prime, I loved how characters were still able to develop friendships with one another just by hanging out at the enemy base and going "What up everyone?" LOL

@tassiana_pettis: Hahaha, yeah it was really free-form like that. People would hang out in the training rooms and chat and spar in the courtyard and sneak off to have private conversations about their evil plots and stuff. So much fun.
