Okay, as the game runner in question, I totally want to spill some tea.
The guy in question contacts me out of the blue on Discord to tell me that he won’t play my game if Cobalt staffs there. I don’t really remember this guy at all, and what’s in our chat history is that he remembers me fondly from Arx before he got banned from there.
So he’s not going to play my game because of one of my longtime friends, so I’m like, “Okay, cool.”
He continues to message me that my game will fail because he and all of his friends won’t play because Cobalt bans people, and I’m like, “Nice. I’m enjoying my small game with its awesome community.”
He ceaselessly insists that the game won’t last more than a month (it’s already lasted years, if in a somewhat dormant state), that I’ve doomed myself by hiring her, that he cannot play because if she sees his IP she’ll ban him as a matter of course, and that he’s just so sad because the game looks great and has such potential but a full third of Ares players simply won’t play a place where Cobalt has a staff bit because she’ll power game.
So this is how I learned that @Cobalt is like a ward against creepers.
Also, I asked my players if they wanted to have open sheets, and they were kind of mixed. Not a big deal to them. We’re not very crunchy. But it’s Ares. That’s something I can do in a moment if my game community so desired.
