I used to help on another RPing site about a year or so ago now. Nobody wanted to pay any attention to limitations or weakness. ('Your character's a hobo vigilante. Where'd he get the cash for flashbangs, again?') My solution? An entire game of flawless, over the top, OP, badasses.
The game died before it even got started. Nobody could stop arguing which character should be the top of the food chain. I sat back and laughed, and when everyone got mad that I, the GM, wasn't doing anything...I had to finally post, 'I'm not doing anything? Here I thought I was highlighting how futile a game of Perfects can be. My bad.'
Not one of my sweetest moments, but you can't always be sweet as a GM.
