No, the current canon option is "everyone wakes up, gets taken to a big holding room, and then let into VR a couple at a time, and the losers get put back in cryo for some reason".

If it makes canon doable without much more work for tal it's all great for me :)

Yeah, I'd be all for REKT experimenting on you guys before you're even out of cryo. :D More seriously, yes, it does lessen my workload considerably - and still gives you a chance to roleplay. I think I would make it obvious to your characters that it was VR, though.

Just go with a:

I put you directly in a VR and let you fight for no reason other than me not wanting to deal with all of you idiots at once for a prolonged time.

Or something ^^"

Non-canon?
It's what I would suggest.

I guess everyone just assumed that silver is only fun when he is a goat, and since Tal does not allow goats anymore Silver is automatically boring permanently...

No its because I think that it would be far less boring if our characters are all woken up then immediately shunted into real combat. :V

Nope. Silver isn't a goat so he is boring, and Tal does not allow goats so he is boring too.

On a serious note ( ik it's funny ) a simulation in cryosleep could take something like a minute at an accelerated rate in our minds, while we are being unfrozen, and THEN we could get thrown straight into combat.

Since in the VR we are ( probably ) going to be using the weapons we will in actual missions, it would also give the people in charge a moment to get stuff ready for each of us, so we can really get to shooting right away.

But then we know each other, and see others as enemies immediately. Bad idea.
Tal, I would recommend simply queuing up the characters in most interesting order, then picking the top ten, and replacing them with the next on the list as characters die. :V
