This entire website suddenly becomes an MMORPG
Quick /v/ what are it's:
>Shitposter - Ranged class
>Mods are basically raid bosses
>Snacks is an endboss and has his own raid
>Moot is the ruler of all everythhing
>Every single board is its own area or continent
>Factions consists of newfags, originalfags, oldfags and cancerfags
Just something I made up in a minute, take it with a grain of salt
Reddit should not be included in a 4chan game in any shape, way or form.
Maybe as a satire in the form of an easter egg or extremely useless creatures in the very corner of r9k land Not even r9k deserve such treatment to be honest.
>Boards are factions
>Dubs and trips are pickups that buff you accordingly
>Raids are called threads and must be closed
>If time runs out, threads 404 and you must start new ones
>Ranged dps: shitposter
>Melee dps: nigger
>Bosses: tumblrinas, Todd, DSP, FBI, whiteknights, bronies, furries, EA, Bethesda
>Loots vary from the common 1 ban privilege to 4chan gold account. Legendaries include CP.
>minions, ads or trash mobs are memes
>moot is to be a summonable raidcooldown
>Banhammer is an extremely hard to obtain legendary item
I would be an enemy, not a character.
Hopefully a boss.
>try out the Porn Crop Poster
>causes Thread Derail half the time and gives a Butthurt Bonus against Anti-Weebs
>but at the same time Ban Chance increases 150%
>find out gaining the Lolicon skill doubles it
>find out gaining the Furry skill triples it
>rolling a Kemololi Cropposter makes Thread Derails instant, Butthurt Bonuses against half the classes, and a 600% increased Ban Chance
Holy shit more games need high-risk gameplay like this. I've even heard there's a rare "Guro" class that mixing it would pretty much make blue boards Heaven or Hell mode.
Let me tell you how exactly that would work, if were talking a big mmo the likes of WoW or something similar.
>Each board will have their own class and massive home hub.
>The game will be hugely PvP insanity, and will be boards trying to get territory based on strategy and abilities as well as numbers.
>Territories will grant more power to anons and give benefits, kinda like Risk.
>The game will last until one board wins against all of them. Meaning, all the other boards are dead and there is only one left still alive, or not taken over.
>No need for permadeath, just taking over territories and overwhelming force.
>Alliances will be nessecary to tip the scales on boards that have more territory than others.
>A very hardcore strategy and skill from anon game.
That is what I envision. Each Board Hub will have specific stuff catered to their culture.
Normalfags versus weebs should be that faction users can always join on either side in every board (except which?) and gain some rewards if the faction they're fighting for wins in a fight.
This is pretty good
>hiroyuki is the main endgame boss
>moot and snacks are secret bosses
Also I can see poster types being somewhat reminiscent of the trinity of MMOs or whatsitcalled
>shitposter - DPS role the most common among the playerbase
includes the following classes:
Cancerfag: pure shitposter class. Known for posting cookie-cutter replies fast and aggressively, often in a way mich unrelated to the topic. Cancerfags love abusing trite memes, especially in out of context situations.
The role of a cancerfag revolves around dealing many instances of damage as fast as possible. Cancerfags' DPS potenital doesn't much depend on the traits of his opponent and doesn't need much buildup, making it the most well-rounded and less ally-relying DPS class.
"baka desu senpai", xd spammers, fedora posters, NORMIES GET OUT posters... all examples of cancerfags
Instigator: specialized DPS class. Instigators know the controversies within a board in every moment of time, their dworn task is to make sure they arise in the most violentm inconsinstent and inconclusive way as possible. Instigators will starts threads about topics they know little to nothing about only to spark conflicts between opposing parties.
Given their need to investigate and be in contact with the inner grudges of a board, instigators need buildup and planning before launching their attacks. They specialize in situational attacks and dealing large instances of damage when the time is right.
NEVER EVER/console war posters, internet "celebrity" posters, "x is shit" posters are examples of instigators
>troll - tank role, somewhat less popular. Known for being handled to a decent level only by a minority of players
>constructive poster - healing role, the hardest to find given the scarce amout of players who undergo this rule
I'd stay and fo full autist with the classes but I'm bored to death. However, the possibilities are limitless:
>Moot is ruler
>Not having Moot in an xpac
>fuckwits that use greentext for sarcasm
>condescending fucks i.e. "you're literally retarded"
>gore/fuel fetish posters
and the list could go on. You guys are making me realize 4chan has some Divina Commedia levels of variety when it comes to ways of being irredeemable filth
Fuck you, these are the factions, anything else is wrong:
The Politically Incorrect:
The Meme Spouters:
Major Neutral Powers (not on the same side):
You'd obviously need levels in some crafting skills to make things. Some craftables would also require specific items such as MS Paint.
I made up a map of /v/ awhile ago during a pirate thread.
It can be a island added in a patch or something. I dunno, stake your claim /v/irgins and become the shitposters of legend (or dont).
I've lurked /f/ and I've seen the character but I have no clue to this day what it's relevance is to 4chan. I guess I could just look it up but I thought someone in this thread would have better insight than some ED article.
>Reddit is final boss of main storyline that ends on decent terms but with a lot of plot threads unaddressed, leaving the victory feel hollow
>Post-game involves going after the ancient ones aligned with the source of all evil, Gaia Online
Then copypastas are ancient melee techniques passed through the generations, CP is forbidden dark magic that can destroy the world if misused, usual porn is some weird kind of magic that only works in half the lands...
Image folders are spellbooks. They need to be neatly organised, so that the mage is able to recall his spell when he needs it.
Oh, also, creating a new thread can only be done with magic, so that will threads be? Will they be raids as people before said?
Archives could be the spirit world, where the history of everything is kept, with every land having its own afterlife too. However, not every moment can be recalled for some reason. Some are merely the stuff of legends, except when someone specifically made a magic item (screencap) keeping its memory alive.
>They need to be neatly organised, so that the mage is able to recall his spell when he needs it
>Accidentally save images in one folder
>Have no idea what's what
>The image names are just strings of numbers
>Casting random shit
>small percent chance to have your spell swapped with anyone else in the world
>Every board is a faction, but other than sometimes raiding other boards they usually end up fighting each other, membership allows player to claim knowledge about board topic in threads elsewhere, i.e. /k/ member can lecture others how guns actually work, /mu/ can tell people their tastes in music are shit, etc.
>Areas are: Japanese Culture, Interests, Creative, Other, Misc., Adult. Text boards are unused areas still present in code and can be glitched into. /5/ is a rumored area no one can actually find.
>Classes are: normie, trap, red-pilled, basement-dweller, NEET, weeb, kawaii grill.
>attacks are: reddit, shitpost, >greentext, reaction image, call him a faggot, >implying, accusations of cancer.
>Worksafe boards are PvE areas, but the game is so badly made and moderation so ineffective players regularly find exploits and glitches to attack other players.
>Archives are dungeons
>Levels are Cancer, Newfag, oldfag. However, levelling doesn't seem to make that much of a difference in power level.
>Bonuses and penalties are: Told, Autism, Edgy, Trolled, BTFO,
>Pepes are in-game currency
>Copypasta are spell tomes.
>Threads are basic form of combat, exp. determined by how many replies your posts get, images are dropped items.
>FTP but P2W because of 4chan pass.
>Board styles are DLC.
>I like to eat raw meat! Am I cool yet! HuH?!!!
>I do it just because I was told that it's the correct way to eat!
>AM I COOL YET??!?!
This is like buying a chicken and then undercooking it while pretending to be sophisticated. Just because you chose to ruin the meat doesn't mean it's suddenly a delicacy. It's just undercooked meat.
Like feeling superior for drinking bottle water instead of tap water.
does old /g/ get a faction? or maybe just a class
>denizens of ancient deleted boards
>extreme minmax classes
>niche overpowered abilities
>immunity to and gains vigor from guro magic
>bonus to guro magic damage
>unable to participate in territorial gains, or doesn't observe territory rules/benefits
I don't fucking know
You can try to level up and change classes but by doing anything you increase faggot gains. Also you can change faction to tripfag but that just gives your faggot class a cosmetic glow.
Hold up, I've seen a lot of your posts lately. Not to say you are or aren't cancer but are you a thing in more than just Mabi?
Factions would probably be
/tg/, /k/, /d/, /gif/wsg/, /co/, /mu/, /m/, etc.
/v/, /vr/, /vg/, /vp/, etc. Maybe add /tg/, /g/, and whatever technology/games boards.
/s4s/, /r9k/, /b/, /tv/, /mlp/, etc.
Classes are your usual RPG classes, but with 4chan names. Maybe each faction has a few unique ones.
it should be western vs. eastern, and neutral.
western is cartoon boards and vidya boards
eastern is of course the weaboo boards
and neutral is everywhere else
the size of the territories should be equal to the average number of posters for each board
tell me how shit it is and how to change it / add to it
Make a tiny little island called Moot/Hiro something or other in the center as some sort of hub and move the center islands somewhere else.
That, and add maybe a few more side islands for the other boards.
off topic lewd image dumper
Why are we focusing on specific classes? Why not have various skill branches for:
> Reaction Images
> Attention Whoring / Name/Tripfagging
> Constructive Discussion
And allow the player to pick a "home" board affiliation, that gives them certain perks and extra abilities (/co/ grants bonus points in storytiming, /soc/ in attention whoring, /ic/ in rage and drawfagging)?
done and I will once they get named
I'm not sure what to make the island look like
Where is this and other pics like it nowadays? It doesn't seem to be under quadruple_amputee anymore on Gelbooru.
I live in a dorm, so I make sure to clear my shit every few days.
put it in the top right to be closer to /b/
What other boards should make residence there?
this works for now
wait wait wait wait wait
>same island as /fur/
alright I'm offended but it's logical, there's no furry board so it's relegated to /b/ but homeless, just like guro... loli might as well be there, too, so I can fap to 2/3 things on that island
forgot about loli actually
I am not good at drawing
Make it almost invisible on the world map, and place it in some godforsaken corner away from everything else. In the real game, you're really going to have to navigate miles of ocean to find it.
So, /loli/, /fur/ and /guro/ are kinda like Japan before Commodore Perry? Foreign lands, closed off and isolated, some due to being too good for mortal people, some for the opposite reasons. With only an occasional traveler from them seen in other lands and quickly persecuted due to their weird customs.
> /out/ bigger than /mu/
I guess if you really think about it, it does kind of make sense.
Those blokes probably like having a lot of space to themselves. A lot of roaming room where the average distance between two campsites is tens of miles.
haha y-yeah that was what I intended
I haven't added any mountains or other terrain yet
Trying to split up the continents a little more, what boards would make good alliances?
At least we get /tg/ and /vr/. Those guys are pretty chill.
From my knowledge:
/fit/ and /mlp/ are surprisingly ok with each other.
/pol/ and /co/ fucking hate each other. Same with /v/ and /co/, but /v/ sometimes doesn't put up with /pol/'s shit.
/ck/ and /co/ interact sometimes.
/ic/ doesn't care about anyone else, except for either wasting time shitposting or just gitting gud.
/wg/ is accommodating for pretty much anyone, being an image dumping ground and all.
added /ck/ and /wg/ in appropriate places
Moved Hiro and moot to isolated/endgame/easter egg islands because there's too much other shit to put in the middle
do you want me to move NZ and draw a ckuc bridge between /d/ and /mlp/
/g/ looks awkward attached like that
/ck/ should be shaped lke a frying pan
make /r9k/ look more like a tumour / growth somehow
really like the lewd peninsula, how /fit/ is a flexing arm
After reading 4chan's pretty easy to follow copyright infringement guide, this actually might be sorta
funfor me to try to develop - not as an MMO, since I'm not fucking amazing at gamedev, but something else.
What would you guys think of a 2D RPG like this? It couldn't be called anything relating to 4chan (I'd call it 4 chins instead, probably) but I could use all the board names, luckily.
The basic idea is:
Factions: normal, vidya, special interest, shitpost, porn, and meme (/pol/ included).
Classes: no classes, your stats are based on level and faction
Equipment: normal stuff
Currency: gold, exchangable for buffs
Mechanics: all board wants to increase the number of posters and the quality of content, so you, Janitor-Man, must go around defeating off-topic threads and handing down bans against trolls and spammers. But don't let the mods catch you abusing your power or posting anything controversial, or YOU'RE the one getting b&.
Maybe there'll be a plot or something, suggestions? Is this idea one for the history books or one for the trash can, as Penn would say?
I was going for a jury rigged piece of hardware wired to The Vidya but if you've got a better idea go for it
/ck/ is an ambiguous pie/cake/pizza with a slice out that I think works nice but I'm open to changing it
I tried with /r9k/ but again I'm no artist I just like cartography
It's also pronounced "Penisula"
Done, look good?
Do you think this would be worth it's own thread when this one 404's?
ty was worried that would trigger somebody
What should I do with all these other boards now /v/?
>>the vidya continent
>/v/ is the most populated city, but has serious management problems, it's full of shitposters(brutes) and shills(idk, monks?something religious), [currently being invaded by the normies(corrupters)]
>/vg/ is a city not too far from /v/, but most of it's population is the shitposters who fail to enter on /v/ so it's mostly chaos
>/vr/- a city that lives in the past, time works strangely there, no more info is known
>/vp/-it's pretty away from the rest, some newfags(basic/freelancer) start they travel there, they only seem to talk about non existent things
>/tg/- often not taken in account because of it's size, it's mostly neets(something like druids, at least something that doesn't bathes often)
a region in
(a this point i just gave up this shits not worth my time, someone continue if he wants)
