UPDATE JULY 2018: The FC is currently not running, but if you're looking to learn to play Gop for fun, we have a Discord server for that purpose that you're welcome to join: /wBAwFfV

Aim

To further and share the art, love, joy and science of GOP, to and with as manyfolks as possible.

- Brief Introduction to GOP -

The FC is run by volunteers from the GOP communities. Many of them are very experienced in GOP and can help you if you wish to learn the game, from beginner to advanced level.

We don't do 5050, because we want to further the art and enjoyment of GOP, not the non-playing of it for rewards. You are welcome if you just want a blood tab for Morytanian tasks, and we are glad that you wish to GOP with us, if only for a little while.

If you wish to visit other minigames, try AOROX's wonderfwl directory: Minigames and D&Ds.
Reason, compassion and GOP.

The FC is mostly populated throughout the hours of the day, but there can be low periods, and folks can be too grumpy/tired to help, but they can mostly redirect you to other folks who like to play. If someone is not responding immediately to your presence/poking in the chat, that may be because they are in a GOP game, and it's difficult to talk and notice chat when focusing on a very enjoyable art, but you will be noticed eventually, so don't think you're being ignored; you are welcome !

Thankyou ! And have fun in GOP. : )

Helpful points

The FC ranking system updates very slowly, so do not dismiss someone's help just because they do not have a rank. There are folks who have been superbly helpful and still not gotten a high rank, and there are those who do not wish for rank, or considers smiley-face the proes* rank (because it's a smiley-face).

The FC name '07 Scape' is just to support the idea of 07 scape, and as a token of history that stuck. It's not an FC about 07 Scape; we GOP !

If you try and speak to folks in there, and you can't see any response, it may be because you have FC filters on 'friends only' or similar.

If you want a written basic introduction to how to play GOP well, see this wonderfwl introductory guide on the RS-Wiki: - Brief Introduction to GOP -


If you would like to help out with this chat, your aid is very welcome ! You can help teach and let folks know about the community, or just help by being kind.

It is easier to GOP when you have your settings adjusted properly. Try see this short quide to adjust your settings for better orb-viewability: Settings for GOP.

Chat Rules


Breaking any of the following rules may incur kicking by ranks who are motivated to kick in order to have more good and less bad in the world.

Leave the chat if you do not intend to follow the rules, or if you temporarily have too many negative mind-ingredients such that it becomes hard to follow the rules.

While in the chat, you may not:

* Host 5050*

Use offensive language.

Discriminate against newer players.

Play exclusive games when there are no helping games available.

Play games stacked against newcommers.

You must:

Keep polite. (Other methods of chatting are available to make use of, so there is no excuse for foul language in chat.)

Help out new players if no other help is available.

Keep teams fair, when newcommers are playing - outcomes should be even, or in their favour, though this may be difficult to gauge.

Important GOP links

There are some important things that Jagex needs to know in order to avoid destroying GOP and to make some fixes/improvements (that doesn't carry adverse affects on gameplay) that would be good to support:

F2P Great Orb Project World

Minigame Grouping System: GOP

* No Runecrafter Left Behind!

Thankyou :p

Been running many Years though ^ - ^


EDIT: (Just to put the points at the top)

Important things to remember, when visiting the chat:


If the FC and/or CC is empty, this may be because whoever is covering is just world hopping, AFK for a few minuits, reloading for game session/blackscreen/et.cet., checking one of the other chats for some reason (personal, or to fetch somone), or just grumpy, and needing 5 mins to themselves.


If there is somone in the chat, but they are not responsive, this may be because they are currently in a game (while playing a game, it is very hard to notice when the chatboccs if flashing, and even harder to respond, without wrecking the game, which is unfair on whoever you are playing with), having trouble with the new interface system (either not used to it, only checking the fc tab evry 10 mins or so, or have accidentally put a filter on), or they may be buisy answering somone else's questions in public chat.


Both of the above points, will mean that there may be a lack of immediate response. Please give it time, and be patient, we really do wish to help you.

We have had many people, over the time running the chat, and even more so, in the short Months since we have had forum presence, who merely come in, ask a question, and leave before we have a chance to answer (sometimes even when we have been waiting, and responded within 3 seconds, which is hilarious, really..

If we are in, we will notice eventually, so please bear with us :p


If somone is merely saying numbers, this is not a direction for you to try worlds of the same numbers, they are most likely just saying the score of that round, either to keep track, without spamming other chats needlessly, or because somone in the chat has asked; if a world is being suggested, then whoever is saying it will probably make that fairly clear :p


All languages are welcome, so don't be put off !


'07 Scape' is just support for 07 :p we GOP !

Last few hours of Gopping left before it becomes nigh unplayable.

We'll just have to hope they will leave us some options to play in safe mode, without all the changes, and will eventually let the action bar and chat boccs be closable, once the NIS is introduced.

Either way, the chat will remain open and opperating, as ever.



EDIT: Points continued


The chat is run by volunteers from the GOP community, so they are all very experienced players, and know how to help out, what the best ways of playing are, for individual styles and game types, and know where to go to contact other Goppers, if more are needed.


Games can be done in P2P, if necessary, but that is not likley, given that the only thing necessitating this, is the daily challenge, and that is the least common of the reasons we get for visits. Nonetheless, we would be happy to help out !



You don't have to be new to GOP to come in the chat, evryone is welcome. If you want to help out, then all the better :p !



Ranks
The ranking system is just there so that people can see who to ask for help, though a lot of people who aren't ranked will help too !
Don't ignore somone just because they don't have a rank, as the system is very time lagged, due to the owner of the acc being a very infrequent player.

Yes, we had always rellied upong just responding to any and every post that came on the forums, about GOP; but decided recently that this may work better if supplimented with such a thread; especially as some were getting hidden, due to them being mistaken for 5050 advertising which we do not do.

Our approach to GOP is very much not about tokens, we see it as an art, and a joy; if our teaching alllows you to go on to make tokens at a much faster rate, then all the better for you, though our aim is to make you learn to enjoy GOP so much, than you end up just playing it for fun, all the time, and then you will accumilate tokens so quickly that you will not know what to do with them and end up just piling them in their millions ! :p
