@Ub3rgames will surely start aggressively moderating the forums when someone self harms due to the rampant bullying that @Ub3rgames allows to continue. But by that point they may find it's too late to start; they'll certainly be sued by family and investigated by France for allowing unregulated bullying in the first place and won't be able to fall back on ignorance that it's been happening.

@Ub3rgames  - the community has overwhelmingly voted in favour of moderation. Do it! Allow constructive criticism, but not toxicity or bullying.
Already happened during inDev with rawrgasm and his buddies finding naturezz's online dating profile and ubergames reluctantly stepped in and took care of it.

You're basically asking for these guys to hurry up and start monitoring online bullying when both offenders and victims have not revealed who their real identities are and are both discussing things pertaining to a video game whether directly or indirectly.

Do you know how odd that sounds?

Not odd at all. You don't need to know someone else's personal identity to bully them online.
True but you're asking a mom and pop dev studio to do this with people who have incognito names. Not even Facebook can effectively police online bullying and everyone knows each other.

You my friend are the new age of thinkers who want rules for everything, the police to investigate the work you listen to your next door neighbor doing and you probably call the cops if someone takes the parking spot you were patiently waiting in que for.

You want all these world issues taken care of by someone else and you want everyone to adhere to the rules yet you have not a care for who will pay to enforce these rules. You just automatically assume it will be taken care of.

Man up

Lmfao, Prometheus is here to tell us we're all brainwashed while showing us a video promoting infowars.

You can't get any better content than this in the actual game guys. I'm telling you, we have some of the most unique and entertaining people on here these forums alone are a cell phone game.

I agree with you Prometheus. Me being glued to football every Sunday keeps me from taking up arms against my world leaders and keeps me walking the straight and narrow. Those mother fuckers are lucky they've hypnotized me with football because I'd be lost without it

Abbo is secretly playing, he still pays upkeep for his Large Villa in Harjik.

lols.

I always wonder if BK's not secretly playing as well, I see that he's still continually posting all day long all over the place. To do that in a forum's of the game you're not playing sounds like a miserable existence.
Says the guy obviously still affected by the people he blocked, lmfao. Guess you'll have to unblock to have that question answered

Once upon a time I was neutral on this subject, but I'm now of the opinion that the forums need to be protected.  At least three consistent posters exhibit signs of true mental disorder, so this is no longer an issue of "free speech".
Ah yes, the classic diagnosis of someone's mental state via internet chat forum.

Quick question: If we choose to moderate the forums with a community manager similar to how RoA did, who do we deem qualified for that role? Does that person make the same "mental assessments" as you do? Does that person even work in that area of expertise? If that person does work in that field, are they overqualified for this role or can they even properly exercise their practice via random forum posts?

All censorship does is create a bias or "good ole boys" club like it did in RoA. Once MWTailor started moderating the forums, all the "yes men" over there started heavily influencing every post especially in the suggestions threads. Ask @Mycke this guy used to go rounds with super star and their other shills until guys like him, Maejol, Adun etc were either squelched or simply gave up.

There currently is a form of moderation right now because I'll see penis pill ads from time to time but they get quickly removed. Anything beyond that will have the exact same effect it did in RoA. I agree with @Helwyr that anything further can wait until after more development has been implemented

The game kills clans that we're going to die anyways. There are people like @Juntness or Noah who have the ability to keep their clans engaged and are good at finding activities and goals that include all play styles in a low population game.

We found it was easy to keep our members logging in while we're wearing our vision goggles controlling and defending our territory down on Ruby. Many get the wrong impression that our clan had that island completely uncontested that entire time in the beginning.

After Gentlemen got spanked out of orc/human lands we had some awesome fights against them and with Avaris also there we had even more fights where it was three competing teams. It wasn't until those guys allied up where all teams started losing active players eventually us being the ones who still had the most to go back to leveling.

90% of the members in our clan rolled mages and 90% of the players we were fighting in the beginning were melee/archers. With how shit our characters were back then, it's no wonder why the fights we'd have with Gentlemen and Avaris were tough but close.

I still believe that if local banking and lack of items on the markets wasn't so harsh, those two clans would've stuck around longer and that island would've continued being fun

Or he gave his account info to someone who is still playing to pay the taxes like I did?

Just a thought

The afformentioned "toxicity" has been a part of these forums throughout all inDev. The difference back then is there were far more good people and topics being discussed.

Through the "toxicity" came a population of great size that exceeded the population of inDev at launch with just as much "toxicity" (maybe even a bit more from the RoA shills) yet the forums still carried out a great deal of feedback and discussion.

If the success of this game stems from the censorship or lack of censorship on these forums then why did the game have so many people playing in spite of this huge shortcoming?

I get where the whole argument for moderation is coming from but get the fuck out of here if you think one of the contributing factors to the population decline are these forums.

You're throwing a little too much shade in another area because your fanboyism won't let you think anything else.

In before the circle jerk of "non forum trolls" say "Oh god another stupid thread where people make fun of Mycke for dying to battlespikes".

Yet Mycke is the first to respond to the thread and question the skill of the players involved and throw their clan leadership under the bus. Even charax will still come defend Mycke and that's his clanmates, lmfao

3 weeks to get one intensify to 80 isn't even good. all you did was left click a lot for mediocre giant bone skins.
I figured that was the point of the video. Left click spam mob after mob for shit loot right?

The sport has been around for a while but by your standards, we also root for basketball and there's also baseball so there's a few sports I'd say that have a decent amount of crybabies. You even get some crybabies in American football

Suggestions / Re: Sithras
At the moment, Sithras are unaffected by any title. At least that's what Ub3rgames said when titles were implemented.
Do you remember if suits affected sithra damage? I know the speed did but can't remember if damage also took part

Forumfall is the only time you get to meet players
QFT

Willing to bet the forum crusaders in here preaching "game's fine bro" spend more time and have more player interaction in these threads than in the actual game.

I'm curly by the way charax. I believe Abbo is Larry at the moment.

Looks like the three stooges are taking over this one as well with their spam. Colour me surprised.
Literally the same could be said about you, Iamda and Mycke.

You guys are the ones doing God's work on these boards according to you right?

InB4 another cheesy 1-2 liner from charax the idiot who can't count

Also hilarious that the most participated thread currently on the first page of the general discussion is an 18 page long troll thread started by a self proclaimed non troll, has supposed trolls and non trolls alike participating in it and contains a discussion pertaining to the latest in game content.

I'd say the people crying "moderation" are also the very people feeding the items they want to see moderated. Stay affected guys, I get it
