Look i get it. Everyone is ticked off about this or that…
Whether it’s personal issues between players/alliances, features of the game, hero(s) changes, etc etc
But can we not just keep our cool and keep in mind we all have the same things in common.
- We all love the game
- We all want an enjoyable and succesful game
- None of us want to read a bunch of squabbles and heated bs or personal attacks when trying to read a topic/discussion or have one ourselves
I’ve got plenty of personal beefs, no secret. But more than willing to separate them from this forum or at the very least, threads not relevant to the matter. I’m done with personal shots, not cause forgive n forget or whatever but because it’s selfish as hell to make multiple threads about something they’re not.
As far as conflicting point of views.
That’s goin to happen regardless of the subject matter. Talking about a place where thousands of people come together to talk about this or that, expecting 100% agreement about anything is just naive…
Now that being said, is there any way we can possibly keep the discussions civil? And especially not make them personal. I mean for all i know Xplayer is a great person and a good player, solid teammate to his team but now i just discarded so n so as a moron cause he thinks that chocolate is better than vanilla…dumb.
I admit i have and still do it quite often, problem is I’m not the only one. I’ve contributed plenty of rants, raves, back n forths, launches of attacks, etc. It’s stupid. Like really stupid. Stupid enough that i don’t realize how stupid it is when i do it. I’m seeing it become more and more popular.
Which raises the question, is that the kind of forum we want? A stupid one?
Players should be able to say “i think x hero needs a nerf” or “x hero doesn’t need a nerf”
And discuss the matter without launchin into attacks about who spends what, what alliance someone is in, etc etc
If a player spent money to get a hero, ok fair enough that they’re probably goin to have an ill reaction to the news that said hero is now being changed. But i don’t see the need to make it personal towards those that thought she needed a change.
And that same thing can be applied to the opposite parties before the news.
If SmallGiant didn’t think a change was needed, they wouldn’t make it regardless of whatever voting or discussion etc took place. They’ve made that clear from day 1.
Anyways all I’m sayin is that by actin like a bunch of jackasses, we’re screwin ourselves out of a pretty cool place to chill and discuss a hobby/passion we all have
Had similar talk some time back:
And to be frank, things weren’t nearly up in flames like they are now.
We’re not helping ourselves, each other, our alliances, our friends, our moderators, or the developers by not keepin a level head.
All it’s doin is screwin this place up for all involved. Plenty of solid forum contributors hidin out in line or APL because of how this place currently is. Plenty of feedback devs will never read because of how this place currently is.
We don’t have to like each other. But agreeing to disagree shouldn’t be that damn hard…
So sure probly repetitive but it’s on my mind and had to clear my head.
Thanks for reading
