hohoholy shit ladies and gentlemen, I guess I didnt pay enough money to get the devs on my side. After making a couple of comments basically saying "If the game doesnt have alpha in 2020, its hopeless". Good opinions, as an opinion, by someone who can make opinions.

I get this GEM of a message, from Serpentius:

Basically, if I dont stop asking about the games progress/making constructive criticism on the development state, they are going to suspend my account with my package I paid 150$+ on.

Fucking wonderful.

Please, forum, why has god failed me?

    They are a shitty group, you shouldn't even try posting shit on their forums if you value and want to keep your account safe.  It's why we post here at mmorpg cause buttsore devs/official forum mods can't pull a cartman on you.

    I would like to take your side but I would need to see more evidence. A lot of times I see these people threatened or banned me for this reason and I then later I find out that it was more then justified.

    I agree with you by the way that CoE is hopeless. The game will never be made by to post that on any forum to any game would get you in hot water. I mean if I did that on FFXIV forums I would also get a notification. I mean I have seen it happen before to others who shit post

    This^


    I agree this game looks hopeless, but still, it could be they feel baited by your conduct. No use posting there and complaining on official forums. This has been a thing with official forums for most games since I can remember. They don't like negativity about their product.

    Assuming this was the thread/post - https://chroniclesofelyria.com/forum/topic/34348/partly-cloudy-with-a-chance-of-rain

    Wouldn't really class that as 'shit-posting'.

    I learned my lesson from that farce of a game project Heroes and Villains that that hack Golden Girl claims to be making.

    After four years of development and very little to show for it I tried to get her to get more people on the development team and I even offered to help promote the project with my own money. From 2016 to 2017 I offered her two opportunities worth hundreds of dollars each, one of which could have been seen by a couple million people in just a few days, and she turned me down both times. Both were opportunities that legitimate developers would never turn down.

    So, my criticisms moved from private chats to the forums. Certain posts were deleted and eventually my forum access was revoked. Later on, when another member called her out on the lack of progress their post was also deleted and their access was revoked.

    Guilty people don't like being exposed because it can turn more people against them. I would say that most developers are quick to squash negative criticisms, even honest ones, in order to keep from losing support for their projects. Unless you are on the development team and have a personal stake in it then a simple monetary donation won't give you any security from the devs' wrath if you give them enough reason.

    It's best to keep negative criticisms both subtle and civil, and if you think that you're ultimately getting screwed then throw your hands up, admit that you're getting screwed and that there's nothing you can do about it and just move on. It's gonna happen to someone, someway somehow.

    A few considerations

    You have been banned from their Discord as I recall, so you have a history of aggravating them.

    $150 is a drop in the bucket, their big spenders will buy more Advent calendars this weekend than that.

    They only threatened to revoke your forum access, not game access.

    You lack subtlety in your criticism, consider dialing it back a bit and avoid hyperbole.

    Should i post Focii's DM's to me threatening to make sure my CoE account gets perma banned? do we need to go there? I think a lot of people don't see what's going on with some of these mods that not only think they have god powers but also verbally abuse community members.

    It's Soulbound's game - they can do whatever they want. It's in the fine print, actually, if you care to read it. Just because you spent money on it doesn't grant you any rights what so ever.

    And you rushed here to drum up support?  LOL! You can talk about a games progression if you have value to add, but just making a troll statement like above well you got what was coming to you.

    I think SBS is just as incompetent and braindead as the next guy, but this I can't really support you on.  I'm firmly on the side of "Developers should be allowed to censor and silence people within their own forums and discords as they want," because it is their property and they should be allowed to moderate as they please.  If we take that right away from the developers, and throw it into random joe schmo's hands, then that raises the risk of uglier things like random joe schmo extorting the developers to keep their forums happy or upbeat.

    Now, if they told you "If you keep vilifying us, we're taking you to court for the big D word (Defamation)," that's when I'd be up in arms right beside you.   Or if they came here demanding you to be banned on MMORPG.com for saying things they don't like.  Otherwise, you know exactly what you're going to get going in there and saying things that upset them.

    I don't have to follow the rules because I've given you money!!

    Freedom of speech!! <---- I love this one.  In school they teach you what this actually means and what it applies to.

    The forums that are hosted and paid for by private companies are not there as your personal sounding board.  They are not a right they are privilege.  There are rules when using them, if you don't follow them your privilege can be revoked.  It could also spill over to your account, that's pretty standard in the fine print of all online services.
  • AnOldFartAnOldFart Member RarePosts: 526
    I actually have to agree with most comments here.
    You have obviously been posting plenty of crap and actually it must have been quite bad and most likely deleted. 

    I've called them out multiple times now, I've even done so in discord. 

    I'm not banned in either and the only warning I had was for "trolling" on discord. That warning was later revoked and an apology given. 

    So please don't come here calling for support with no evidence of what you actually posted prior to getting your warning.

    Lol almost every "The devs are mean" thread turn out to be the poster being a complete douche. No screen of what you were posting, no mention of what was said. I wouldn't be surprised if you got a warning for nothing but history is not on your side at this point and given the deceptive title one can only assume. If it was the post linked by FuryV then yeah that is insane.
  • Slapshot1188Slapshot1188 Member LegendaryPosts: 11,661
    A few points here.

    1.  If you read what the OP has posted now and in the past it is not really anything close to "being a complete douche".

    2.  It is totally in character, based on historical precedent, for their CM Serpentus to overreact to protect the bubble of alternate reality over there.

    3.  It is the forums of SBS and they can do whatever they want to there.   They have a right to ban anyone from their forums.  Now if they banned you from the game then they better refund you.  Same thing if they use the forums for any form of actual game events. (and it will be interesting as they start using Discord for these events since they have a lot of banned customers)  But barring that, they get to make the rules in their forums.

    Some interesting posts on this over on the official forums. Seems like at least one of the “King” level donors has been screenshoting posts that later disappear and there appear to be quite a few people unhappy with how Serpentus their CM has been stealth moderating posts and then just deleting things.

    When posts about legitimate concerns start disappearing then you know you've got at least one scumbag moderator behind it, and probably at least one scumbag developer too.


    Please note that there is a difference between a legitimate concern, such as "The game needs/could use X feature because of (valid reason)" or "The game's backers would like to see some actual progress because you've shown none in two years" and just someone repeating/imploring the message that "This part of the game's progress needs to be ready at X point in time regardless of anything else simply because I am a backer and I say so."
