bring the smackdown, civility discipline to these quckly deteriorating forums. It's really getting to be a chore to watch the same troll threads made and fueled by the same troll posters more often than not just go on and on and on posting again and again and again. Nothing constructive or to build the community, just a campaign of gloom.
SWTOR forums. Made the site unvisitable. Please, not here. Not here.
You're right about one thing -- these sure do look like the SWTOR forums.
Of course, a few months into it now, the SWTOR forums were pretty accurate all along, it seems. Now I'm -not- saying that's true here...but the steadily rising tides of 'just leave' and 'you must be a troll' comments cannot bode well for anything.
No, they were not predictive per se but more like self fulfilling prophecy. In their relentlessness and poor forum moderation succeded in creating a "forum public general concensus of acceptable negativity" (FPGCOAN) that simply contributed to turn away prospectives.
SWTOR had serious, serious issues.
It's no wonder people bailed on that game.
TERA has issues just as serious.
It will be no surprise if Vanarch/Nexus doesn't turn this game magically around (unlikely, since those do not affect some of the core problems with the game).
That is EXACTLY what I mean Pharys. Nothing is perfect and we can't always expect peaches and cream. Constructive positivism and criticism come hand in hand. But when they are obvious naked trolling attempts as he gave a couple of examples of and from the same posters over and over (who obviously are not getting a moderation induced vacation) that is a problem.
Minea might need a couple of those interns to come help him/her/it after they bring in the mochaccinos.
