A serious problem is the freedom of expression on this forum. I posted in general game discussion about the changes and no loot ( you can check my messages to see that I was not trolling or anything) and my message was moved to "River of tears" which was much less VISIBLE
What is the point of doing that when the guy who post comes with arguments.
First the name of the "River of tears" is degrading and secondly it is almost like censorship because as I said before your message will be seen only by players who looks at the Thunderdome, "Child boards", "River of Tears" which is a small section compared to others.
The name "River of tears" makes it sound like messages that goes there are only complains. Maybe for some, but not for ALL. And for the messages that would not have been only complains it is an injustice to put it there.
And I will go further, even if someone wants to complain without arguments, can't he do it publicly without seeing his post moved to "River of tears" ?
What I truly think now is that there is a new wave which consist of thinking that if someone is complaining about the game. It is his fault, he is crying, he is a noob, he should PLAY
something else etc... And these people think that to be successful, YOU have to adapt and remain silent even if the changes are bad.
I give you an example of very classic situation, if tomorrow devs decides to buff more molotovs cocktails and that it becomes clearly TOO strong for it's rarity.
You have a guy who comes on forum and complain about it, bringing proofs that it is bad.
What I noticed is that you will ALWAYS
find people who will tell him that He can/should do the same "if it's op". Ok he can do the same but does it mean that this change is good and that we should keep it ? ( Don't you think that he knows he can do the same but is pointing out the fact that fights with everybody doing this would be bad ?)
You ll have people telling him : go play something else if you don't like these changes ( Don't you think he knows that too ?) which means in my language : Adapt or leave ( die/disapear from reloaded community).
It is like the natural selection in Natural Sciences but here it's not the most adapted to the world that survive it is the most adapted to the (shitty) choices devs made after they already adapted to FOnline. But being adapted to shit is not a good thing in my opinion. I wanted to explain that it was the same in life in our societies but I will not step in this and stay in FO.
Please don't remove my post or put it in river of tears or "toxic"caves because I talked about "shitty" choices thank you. Have a nice day For those who wants to understand more clearly what I am saying read this :
VIII. The Dog & The Perfume Bottle
(a free translation)
“My beautiful dog, my good little doggy, my pooch, come here and breath in the wonderful cologne I’ve just bought at the best perfume shop in town.”
And the dog, while wagging his tale—a gesture, I believe, that corresponds to laughter and smiles among these poor creatures—ran up and stuck his moist nose with curiosity into the unstoppered bottle. Recoiling suddenly with fear, however, he barked at me as if in reproach.
“Ah! miserable dog, if I’d offered you a package of excrement, you’d have sniffed it with pleasure. You might have devoured it. So, dog—my sad life’s undeserving companion—you resemble the public that one must never exasperate with delicate perfumes. Better, instead, to offer them carefully chosen manure.”
From Le Spleen de Paris, 1869
