It's the internet. Everyone is an ******* here.
A good point that would, perhaps, hold more water had not several people already thrown a shitfit over Magellan being impolite….
First of all, "opinions" are like assholes; Unless you're living together, nobody cares that you has one.
His opinion is wrong because it is not based on facts. Instead of reinventing the wheel, we suggested that he worked with the system, which is just fine. Some things the Missionary and the Seneschal can do is already borderline overpowered when it comes to their special abilities, compared to especially someone like the Explorator, that gets nothing except a prereq. for later talents - mechanically speaking - only implants. Implants anyone can get. The Missionary gets an incredibly useful Special Ability that also acts as a prereq. for Career-defining talents.
What do you want us to suggest? Everything we can possibly suggest to "fix" the Special Abilities of the Seneschal or the Missionary will result in them becoming wildly overpowered compared to all the others.
This is an interesting post. You start out by expressing the opinion, irony surely not intended, that opinions are like assholes In other words, no one cares that you have one. You then go on to misuse the word opinion, claiming that they can be right or wrong when the very definition of the word is that it is a subjective belief.. Protip: Opinions are not facts. They need not be based on them. You can think they are stupid, misinformed and lacking in basis, but you cannot claim that they are wrong. You're free to disagree with how someone thinks about things, especially in something as subjective as a gaming experience. Which is why Magellan, in his starting post, made it quite clear that he thought Seneschals and Missionaries had underpowered abilities. Now, if he had said that these classes were, objectivly, weak and useless then he would have been wrong because, as said, you can't judge a gaming experience on an objective scale.
But, you also raised an interesting question. What does Magellan want you to suggest? The answer to that we can find back in his original post, where he expressed a desire to hear suggestions on what these classes can do that others can't and how to improve the classes' special abilities. While he never did specify that he did not want to hear people tell him that his opinion was objectivly wrong, I am quite sure he wouldn't have wanted that either. So then, what could you have done? Well, for one thing, offering helpful suggestions of improving the characters that Magellan felt were underpowered instead of telling him that he was wrong.
With all due respect, did you even proofread what you just wrote? You deride people for having opinions, for having opinions different then yours… and then go on to express your own opinions as if they had any sort of objective "rightness" to them.
Just my three-fiddy, this time.
