    New PvP Forum Rule

    Post by Emergence on Thu Mar 21, 2013 9:57 pm

    All threads that are framed as so are to be halted completely:

    "X and Y is OP"
    "I hate X and Y tactic/weapon/setup"

    They are to be reborn as:

    "Need help countering X and Y"
    "How should I approach beating X and Y"

    If you're not looking for help or tips, just shut it anymore. We all know what the taboos are and they aren't going away. Repitition of the stuff that irks you is no different than walking around IRL muttering "Drugs are bad mmkay? They do bad things to you mmkay?"

    A little less redundancy would be lovely. I'm not saying that certain things aren't harder to overcome than others but these rant threads are a bore. Tons of bright people around here, surely we can build a coalition towards adaptation? Right?

    Forum rules are OP.
    Seriously though,you should sticky this for a bit.

    The end of rants and the start of adapting against the things the rant is about? About time thanks E!

    My guess. The many page long debates in the spear and dark magic threads that've been active for days now.

    Good enough of a reason. Now we might actually be able to make some progress with countering these weapons now.

    I was just thinking earlier today that this would be a good rule to have here. Wikidot made a very similar rule ages ago and it improved the quality of threads in the PvP section by like 1000000%.

    It also decimated the amount of new threads being made, but I think it's an acceptable trade-off.

    It had been ok more or less until this past week with just an odd thread here or there popping up, then kaboom.

    I just have a dream of the forum getting to what a true "forum" means which is the open exchange of knowledge that advances a community forward. Let's refocus the lens to a culture of elevation. No more ego driven I'm so pro info hoarding, no more whining, no more this is ok but this is not.

    Also not going to sticky this. I actually want it to be seen. silly

    I'd really hate saying "How should I approach beating ganking and hacking." Implying they are legit tactics.

    Seriously though, Hawkeye Gough's Greatbow needs to be nerfed. That Cripple Limb hidden effect it has is game breaking. Not to mention it should be patched anyway to get an attack similar to the manus catalyst. The thing is like fifteen feet tall.

    Did I mention it's arrows are like spears? Because that's important.
