MTs, Colonial Marine's Greytide?

Post by Tigroon » 18 Jan 2018, 00:23

The last few shifts as CE that I've played over the course of the last month, I've had non-stop trouble with MTs getting into trouble, doing things they shouldn't, getting their hands on things they shouldn't have, and otherwise, just breaking the law overall. They sure do like the liquor cabinet over in the Commander's Mess, that's for sure.

Are the MTs the Greytide of CM? Limited number non-withstanding, the amount of trouble one MT seems to get into on a roundly basis goes far and beyond what most Marines seem wanting to do.

There are too many MT spawns and not enough for them to actually do and what they do have to do is boring as piss.

One shift, I had MTs that went above and beyond, creating a whole new extension to medical that included a waiting lobby, sickbay, and secondary surgical hall, all out of the lounge that is adjacent to the south of Medical. They have shit they can do, man. They just choose to fuck around instead.

MT's are chaotic neutral and I love it as a CE. It keeps the round interesting for a relatively mundane position.

As CE, I once made my MTs steal booze, invade the CL quarters and steal his clothes and proceed to make a bar + disco.

Take that with a grain of salt.

That's a very rare situation. Plus if MTs aren't screwing around, what do the MPs get to Do?

Unless devs revamp engineering you're just gonna have to deal with it

You can't even make super illegal airlocks to super illegal bars on the hull anymore.

I'm usually pretty law abiding with any role I play. My MT/survivor main "Peter watts" usually just babysit the reactors and picks up trash. That being said I'm new to the role and aren't skilled enough to get into much creative trouble. Once me and another MT We're ordered by the RO To open up Charlies prep room. So we did it. Only to have the CE Try to have us arrested for breaking the law because we didn't check with the RO If command had approved that action. Seemed a little unfair to arrest us for following orders from a superior officer. MPS took us to the brig then just immediately let us go with a warning. They seemed to understand we were victims of a simple misunderstanding. We even restored the doors to their original state prior to being taken. So in closing I guess. I don't get into too much trouble. Not yet anyways.
I play primarily as Era "Hannibal" Barca: PFC, SG, and Peter Watts: MP/CMP main and sometimes survivor/MT

Lately all I've seen MTs doing are cleaning up the ship with janitor carts, and replacing lights. Where'd all the secret bar building, autism-fort constructing, law-breaking, INTERESTING MTs go? lol, just kidding, all MTs are great.

I don't play MT since the switch to the Almayer, because EVERYTHING that job had got removed. There's just no point to it. It's basically CM's assistant.

You'll literally get boinked immediately, or the CMP will FIND a reason to arrest you.

Only real useful thing left for MTs to do is to make cameras in useful places for command, but even that is mostly moot as every boot has helmetcameras now.

This..

Sulaco's MT were the real thing, a good MT was a grief master or the marine's secret weapon.

A good CE authorises additional things
Be creative.

I personally like to send my worker bees to reinstall the camera network because the dumb naming the current one has.

Isn't that both frowned upon by staff as powergaming, AND unneeded since all helmets have auto-linked cameras?
