Lately the RP'ing has been free form with all the genin roaming around and interacting with each other, but in my opinion we should bring back teams again. Though the free form interaction with various jounin and genin has been entertaining it seems to me that we should try and get back into teams and start going on team missions again.

Or if you'd much rather keep the free structure the RP apparently has now, I've got no problem with that either. I just wanna hear some opinions on this and find out if I'm the only one feeling this way.

I'm for teams, but I don't think it'll work. A team requires 3 members and a jounin to stay active at once. It's too hard.

I'm sure we could find a way to make it work, though.

Sure, the idea of teams is fun and all, but the problem is getting the jounin with the genin, and having people rp when the team is out doing something. I'm talking more Mist side than Leaf (since the team thing isn't a problem there), where even though Mist has three genin, one jounin *coughOmegacough* has been MIA for a while, Kaz is limited, and I've yet to hear back from Zenkai on what his jounin is going to do next. Leaf side you can do whatever you want, but for Mist the whole team idea might be a little out of reach.

Posted by: Ds14 Sep 4 2007, 11:10 PM
Oh, good point. I didn't think about that.

Posted by: FinalRagnarok Sep 4 2007, 11:25 PM
Dang, I forgot about leaf. I guess Kaz and Zenkai's jounins will have to step up their game then.

Well now I'm going to be RP'ing more often. So hopefully one more active jounin will help.

As for the mist, I'm sure Omega will get back into RP'ing eventually. For now, it really shouldn't matter. At least there would be team activity on one side.

I'm gonna start a thread on the return of Uchiha Mikyas O_o

Posted by: Ds14 Sep 5 2007, 01:09 AM
XD, are you going to rp that he got a splinter and has been looking for tweezers for weeks?

Posted by: Uchiha Mikyas Sep 5 2007, 01:23 AM
Nah lol. He basically has been sitting on his ass and looking back at his life. On vacation for a whole month, and now he decides to get another team together. I know it's a terrible idea lol.

I am not missing. I told you I dont feel like RPing really. I pretty much have no motivation left.

Well, thanks for clearing that up dry.gif . Either way, I put MIA because thats what it seemed like to me. If you want to clarify that it's a loss of motivation rather than not coming to the site very often, fine by me.

...It still leaves Mist without any active jounin though.

i actually have an accepted jounin in mist that i haven't even used yet...maybe i should hop to it -.-

Posted by: FinalRagnarok Sep 5 2007, 10:13 PM
hey, that's a great idea. Mist probably doesn't even have enough genin to fill a three man team anyway, so 3 jounin are probably more than enough.

Since Mickey's comin back with his Jounin I'm gonna be one of the genin under his tutelage. And I'm gonna bet that Ds is gonna have Rain under Mikyas also, if only because it'd be awkward to have your Jounin teaching your genin (and my genin and Ds' were under mikyas' tutelage before he left). So if I'm right in thinking that Rain's gonna be on Hinagi's team I guess there's one more spot left for anyone who'd like to have their genin join.

Posted by: Ds14 Sep 6 2007, 02:03 AM
Exactly. I want to have Ayame and Rain interact as little as possible because it feels like cheating to me. I don't really think it is, but it just feels kinda wrong.

Posted by: FinalRagnarok Sep 6 2007, 08:45 PM
Well I guess I'll tell the genin to go ahead and show up in the training topic that I'm assuming Mickey's gonna make once he rounds up a few genin to train to death.

Btw, Ds do you know why Argento stopped posting with his Vin Character? We were gonna have a Uchiha as our 3rd teammate but he stopped posting too. Rakurai was gonna have his genin be on our team for our 3rd but then he stopped. It's almost as if there's some sort of inactivity curse on our 3rd team member XD. LOL watch us find a third and then he stops posting XD.

Posted by: Ds14 Sep 6 2007, 09:11 PM
No clue on Argento. He just disappeared one day.

Posted by: FinalRagnarok Sep 6 2007, 09:40 PM
Yeah he really just fell off the map. It was surprising as hell lol. But either way even if we don't have a team I guess all the genin cooperating together is just as fun at times. If we were to get a 3rd for our team, it'd probably end up being one of the new genin with like 500 chakra or something, which would really stink XD.

Who's on Kuroukami Yukio's genin's team anyway? Maybe we could pick up Katsuma, especially since his Hachibi character rocks.

Either way I extend an invitation to any other posters that are in the mood to rp with their leaf genin to join the sparring topic that mickey made (particularly because Ds and I have had our genins spar already so I'm in the mood to have a 2v2 XD)

If you do wanna join in on the topic then you should take a look over here:

*prays for 2 more people so it can be a 2v2*

I'd be glad to fight you guys when I get Kazuki to atleast 1,500-2,500 chakara.

Posted by: FinalRagnarok Sep 11 2007, 07:28 PM
That's cool. We used to have an Uchiha on our team but he like died. So it'd be really awesome to have both the doujutsus of leaf on our squad XD.

Posted by: Rikid Sep 12 2007, 12:27 AM
ah yeah that would be cool xD, was the old guy on your team "Uchiha Yuugi?"

Posted by: FinalRagnarok Sep 12 2007, 01:22 AM
Yeah, how'd you know?

Posted by: Rikid Sep 12 2007, 12:30 PM
wild guess, I seen the character in the accepted files forum.

Posted by: Ds14 Sep 12 2007, 09:28 PM
To anyone with a locked up character:

A locked up character... something that happens a lot on Jiyuu, is a character that cannot post because they were interacting with someone that just flat out left or there is a mod that is not doing what they're supposed to.

I took on the job of character acceptance, so if I were to get lazy, you could spam my PM box and I'd understand it was my fault.

My point is, if anyone but the Tech Chart Acceptance person (only because we can't let broken tech charts in) just went inactive for no reason and your character got locked up waiting for them, I'm all for just pretending that thread never existed and leaving it alone and starting a new one. It's not worth becoming inactive yourself just because someone else is gone. They could be legitimately busy and that's okay, you just don't have to be stuck because of someone else's school, family problems, tiredness, or just plain laziness. It's neither of your fault.... for the most part.

And finally, if they were just gone for a decent amount of time, come back, and don't give a reason for it but start being rude about your starting a new post, tell them to blow it out their ass.


Inactivity should not create more inactivity.

Posted by: Rikid Sep 12 2007, 10:50 PM
Lol we can flame on this forum?

Anyways are you guys going to start making 3 man teams? I pm'd some rpers from A4(The forum me and Kazuma visit often) to come here. So hopefully Jiyuu will be getting around 101 members

Posted by: Ds14 Sep 12 2007, 10:52 PM
It wasn't a flame. I directly stated that it was usually not people's fault.
