    If it is really important to you they can't really ban you. Reset your IP address, make a fictional email account and post again, they won't even know its you. There are other ways to do this as well, that is just the simplest. i was actually going to do that but then decided it wasn't worth it after examining my motivations.

    Got banned, check.
    Made a new account to post about getting banned, check.
    Professes to not understand why the ban happened, check.
    Blames ban on people liking a game, check.

    There's at least one of these per game per release, so we have at least reached our quota.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    trolling/flaming isnt considered critisism, thus the ban and rightfully so, the forums are already littered with trolls as it is. And judging by your thread, on the GW2 forums and about GW2, it's obvious you were trolling to begin with. (same goes with any of the game sub-forums)

    I think they call it "retaliation" (that reason is in the list when you report a post), and I think it's a very good think that it's forbidden. It takes some time to adapt, but soon enough, you learn to use "report" instead of calling someone a troll, and the forums are much cleaner.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    Qouta is gonna be closer to a good 30 or 40 of these. what you got there is close to a MMO release bingo.

    Except the report function is a terrible substitute for actual active mods. Trolls get a lot more leeway with a report function even being able to bait and report others with it. It can also take things out of context very easily. Mods that are active in the community are the best way to battle trolling, which mmorpg.com doesn't have. The coverage of the mods is actually severely lacking during certain hours.

    With active mods baiting can be nipped in the butt and prevents things getting out of hand. It's as simple as that.

    Nah I've attacked TSW several times and not even a warning. But I try to do it in a constructive way to avoid the banhammer. Well I go off on the payment model (sub+cash shop) so maybe I've avoided it because I dont have anything to say about the game itself lol.

    So i'm curious what his other posts and account was hmmm. was he the one posting "yeah i played GW2 bwe's but i couldn't get past the hype/p2w" type poster or one of those that just outright calls all the players of the game stupid for pre-ordering it. Maybe he called someone a fanboi one too many times. who knows.

    I was beginning to wonder about some of these sneak posts in the forums lately, nice to see the mods stepping in.

  • everlandeverland EverlandPosts: 71Member

    Conspiracy? Yeah, right...

    Guy probably didn't even read email with ban reasons.

    I'm sure, he either used bad language, or talked bad about someone, and was to worked up, to even realize it himself.

    how old are you, 5? i have started several negative threads about gw2, the only difference is I don't start it off with "gw2 sucks, i hate gw2 fanbois."

    Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)

    The fact that you even posted this shows that you deserved what you got.  It's against the rules of these boards to create threads to question the mods - yet you did it any way.

    You didn't post this to find out anything. You can simply email them and they will gladly answer why - in fact, I'm sure they already told you what you did in the email that banned you.

    You may have tossed in your 2 cents, but it was likely dipped in poison.  

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    That right there could be considered a personal attack and against the RoC. Just saying, everything you write is subject to ban, and if the guy felt like it was an attack he could easily report you.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    Evil prospers when good men do nothing. A bit dramatic, but the sentiment is correct. :)

    Judging by the content and grammar, I believe this is the guy who had the "girlfriend and/or wife with 6 year old son" whose significant other was bad at WoW PvP even with full gear, but really good as an elementalist in GW2...

     Yep.

    A couple posters in here that could get modded for their comments. Can be pretty subjective pending on who is monitoring the boards at times.

    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    The forums are not the place to handle this situation. Email or message MikeB, he can review a moderation decision for you and either explain why you were given an infraction or potentially reverse it. You can contact him at community@mmorpg.com.  Not speaking to your specific case, but in general, sometimes how you say something is what's key. No one is ever banned or warned simply for having a negative opinion.
