Hey, /tg/. I'm just about to compile some of that data I made into a single chart, but I'm just missing a couple of things.

One, last year I used the 4chan-house mascot character of /tg/ that looks sort of like Shaggy of Scooby-doo fame as the representative of "The average /tg/'er", but some people didn't like that. Do you have a preference for the image?

Alternately, I used a mascot girl for 2009 and 2010, with a survey-draenei and Redlife's Market-research Troll-girl, respectively. Which /tg/ poster girl will we use this time, granted that we've got her doing something that is somewhat business-related to suit the theme?

Working on the final bits as we speak, just thought you'd like to have some input.

I can only think of a few I've got copies of, but in reality, I just like having a pin up girl to put on there, it's just that I might as well have a pic that's related.

So far I can only think of

-Reasonable Daemonette
-Cultist in Glasses
-Survey Daemonette (Without facial, obv.)
-I don't think I've seen a professionalized /x/tan
-I'd consider using the suave devil from broquest, but that's been taken from us and made into a /v/ thing. Lacks the tits, but it would suit the role.

Besides that, I've seen various characterizations of /tg/, ranging from the shaggy type, to the neckbeard hambeast, to Dr. Thelonius Girth.

generals aren't bad when done well, honestly i think it works well as a system to keep like minded individuals in one area and especially helps prevent multiple small retarded threads about small questions that might never get answered since very few people reply to small threads.

for 40k it'd be dumb since there's so much 40k, but for warhammer fantasy for example it'd work out great.

No, there isn't.

40K really should be confined into a general, but considering how vocal that particular minority is (and they are a minority, which is why these surveys are so useful), we'd never be able to do that.

I mean, take a look at the uproar about the recent yahtzee review. He nails it on the head (that the setting sounds/is juvenile), and all the manchildren get into fits about it. If they were forced to make a single general thread, then they'd go about saying that every other game should have to use general threads, and /tg/'s harmony would be disrupted by their bitching.

40k players are basically a tiny little plague on this board, the common cold without a cure, that we tolerate because it's mostly harmless and we've got worse diseases to cure.

My favorite and most played games are things like Burning Wheel, Weapons of the Gods, Dogs in the Vineyard...

The only wargame I play is Infinity...

But... nope.jpg

The butthurt is unreasonable, but it's also unreasonable to say the setting is entirely juvenile and without worth. There's an introduction by one of the BL authors (none of whose books I particularly like, but this is one of the better ones and the introduction is spot-on) called Matthew Farrer. It hits the nail absolutely on the head regarding 40k. The background, and the potential for something like a P&P game, is not without depth. Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader and Black Crusade can be epic, star-sprawling games. I regard the wargame as of very little worth, but I cannot deride the setting in such generalities and sweeping statements - because it doesn't deserve them.

Since it was asked for, here's the 2010 (Revised) Version.

The newer one has less data so far, but I'm trying to tweak it a bit.

Unfortunately, some of the data isn't going to be able to port over due to different questions asked (I've yet to absolutely perfect which questions to ask), but some have been uniform over the past years, so I can illustrate some trends that will show up in this years'

The only way 40k is made reasonable is to ignore everything that is iconic about 40k and just turn it into "generic science-fiction." That's how Rogue Trader decided to go about it, and that's why people liked it.

Once you bring back stuff like super soldiers who spit acid and eat people's brains while wearing impractical suits of armor while fighting against fungus monsters who use stupidity to fuel their technological developments, we're back in 40k, and we're back in ridiculousness.

>>16534016
I advocate generals, i think they clean up a board and offer a good nexus for people to come together and talk, but a 40k general would fill up in minutes, not even hours.

Looking at the catalog there's almost as many 40k threads that are >50 post than there are other threads that are >50 post.

I'll admit a lot of 40k threads are pointless and go untouched. but thinking that they could easily be fit into a single thread at a time is ludicrous. Unless you had separate generals, but then they'd be bumped so often they'd block out the front page (not like this doesn't already happen.)


>>16534055
the different game communities are already divided, i don't think it'll tear our board appart since even just this thread shows how much some people hate others games of choice. (warmahorde/warhammer bickering, 40k hate... etc.)

also the problem with /co/ generals isn't so much the fact that they are general threads but that there are two media that make/are forced to make generals that are reviled by some /co/mrades for little to no reason.

i don't get the hate for generals myself since there are 99 other potential threads with potentially other topics when there IS a general thread. less if there isn't

Though i'd agree with the insular nature and the increased appreance of tripfags...
however i find general threads tend to increase the ammount of OC, and act as a good source of news and photo leaks. as well as an "expert" pool of knowledge that a newbie can easily access if they see it. instead of having to make a new thread and HOPE that some one stumbles across it and replies.

That's not really a problem. Even if half the threads on the first page are 40k, you can just scroll and/or visit one of the 15 other pages.
I've ignored their threads for years now. It works just fine. If they want multiple threads, let them have them,

>>16534027
/tg/ is already split in separate groups. 40k doesn't spill into non-40k threads, or very rarely. I noticed only one shocking exception in the last months.
I don't see why we should be a tight-knit community. We have different interests, and there's no helping it.
We share a board, and there's no reason to do otherwise.
We mostly get along, and aren't really aggressive, though.
Until someone makes a metathread. Or a HFY thread.

It's a fun thing to look at and it's happened for two years you haven't been here. Yeah, it's not a genuine sample. No, I don't feel like that's a reason to be an ass to the guy doing it - he admits as much.

>The only way 40k is made reasonable is to ignore everything that is iconic about 40k and just turn it into "generic science-fiction." That's how Rogue Trader decided to go about it, and that's why people liked it.
Okay, we're just going to have to agree to disagree. I disagree quite markedly that that is what the 40k RPGs do, but we're clearly at an impasse.

the whole idea of trying to take a sample from an anonymous image board is silly to begin with. take it for what it is: an interesting anecdote.

>> No.16534261

I don't like the 24 hour sample size, it's too narrow. If you catch /tg/ on a day where there's no Battletech, Infinity, Mordhiem, Blood Bowl, MERCs, what-have-you thread going on then it's going to come across as nobody on /tg/ plays those games. Just because the front page isn't cluttered with threads about a single game doesn't mean people here don't play it; it means people have the common sense to post in a single thread instead of cluttering up the board with the same shit.

You really got to do a week long survey to get anything even remotely accurate.

Well, I no longer participate in 40k threads for two reasons:
1) Eventually you just get tired of the same fluff questions.
2) Infinity killed me for other wargames (except maybe Freebooter's Fate, Cutlass or Hell Dorado - I got a fantasy fix to fill).
Still look in on DH, etc. threads though. More for rules innovations than stories/fluff - I feel bloated with 40k fluff.

which is why not much time and effort is put into these since it depends on the honor system.

You know, it just occurred to me that L5R is not featured at all in the 2009 survey.

Was it some kind of resurgence that led to it being WoD levels of popular recently?

I'm just curious to see where AdEva wound up this year. From following the threads (not to mention the IRC..) there's a good 15-20 games going right now that are composed largely of /tg/ers

>> No.16534788

>>16534682
Theres sort of an inherent question there as to whether AdEva should be considered separate from DH, any more than say, RT, DW, and BC are.

>> No.16534816

>>16534788
And the answer is yes? I don't play AdEva, but it is clearly far more divergent from the other DH spinoffs and takes place in a completely different setting. Yes, it should be considered separate.

Not really. Spycraft is considered a game outside the "D&D" sphere, even though it uses mostly d20/3x mechanics. Large chunks of new materiel, plus mutiple new mechanics make it a clearly different game with a different purpose.

..Which will be largely moot when 3x AdEva comes out, using a new from-the-ground-up system. Not that I'm saying it's good yet, or even that I'll play it, but that's a split that'll be interesting to follow next year.

Placeholder.

Still need a good image for /tg/

I was going to try to use the "Faces of /tg/" image, but everything I tried to do with it ended up looking like horseshit, so I bailed.

I'm sure I'll errata this for something sooner or later, so for now, Version 1.00.
