    I'm not sure you're familiar with the concept of a "forum".

     

    See, it's an exchange of ideas...not a cheerleading section for the game you like.

    The answer to your query is easy.

     

    Most people do not have tons of money to spend on TRYING every MMO that comes out.  Most of us rely on player feedback to help us decide on whether or not the game lives up to what we want from one.  I realize that most feedback is bias...part of being an intelligent READER is to be able to process that data with the understanding that it will be bias.

     

    There is nothing wrong with bashing, not anymore so wrong than fanboy hyping anyway.  Most games give players of both extremes...all it takes is for you to read in the middle of them and look over what the game claims to be to figure out if its a good try or not.  For instance, Vanguard claimed to be very massive and very good.  Fans stood behind it even though it had flaws.  The bashers informed us that it was fatally lacking in content and deliver of promises.  I saved money not trying that game, which would have not lived up to what I want from a game in order to enjoy it.

     

    Interesting point here though...you are taking sides against the bashers whom think they know it all........

     

    Yet you place your OWN view of this matter on a horse just as high as theirs.  I find this "disease" to be common of those whom think they are "smart".  This is akin to people who claim others are close minded.  In the end, if you are disagreeing with them as much as they are with you...then logic would suggest BOTH sides are being either equally open minded or equally closed.

    I find it funny there is all this "sensitivity" floating around once WaR games is finally on the chopping block for discussion.

    Iike vangaurd last year, that was on of my biggest tiraids in a long time, not because it was something that made me feel good, but the game just left me with such a ripped off feeling that it was hard not to bash it to little peices, I mean, it was so hard bashed Sigil doesn;t even exist now .....

    If companies want to throw up some fancy lights and say grand things about a game not even released, be prepared for the executioners of any game forums, cause they usually roll in packs....

    Was i and a few others the executioners of VG, no, VG was it's own Axe man.

    LOL...you ain't wrong sol.  I spent the last two years listening to people claim "VANGUARD WILL KILL THIS GAME!", "NEVERWINTER NIGHTS 2 WILL KILL THIS GAME!", there were others too, and now it's "AoC WILL KILL THIS GAME!" or "WAR WILL KILL THIS GAME!".

    What's funny, a lot of those same people were suddenly all upset when people called them on it after Vanguard and NWN2 didn't deliver...and the same will happen with AoC and WAR, IMO.

    Almost every MMO feature solo/grouping gameplays, beside CoX, none support it all the way to the end (with the best stuff on everything you need).  And you wonder why there are soo many bashers?

     

    If cute girls would all sit on your laps but none would want to do anything with you ever, wouldn't you find this extremely aggravating when they come sit on your laps?

     

    I actually find the players extremely Zen and nice.  You actually make someone solo/group...and then your force him to raid/PvP???  And you wonder why there are "so much" hatred?  If anything, as I said, the hatred is extremely thin and well controled.

    We bash because we can, er I mean, care.

    These are discussion forums, and people like to argue why they love or hate a game.

    No different than sports fans arguing why "their" team is better than someone elses (except in that case, they don't really play for their team, so their support is sort of odd actually)

    So what if someone bashes your favorite game.  Feel free to defend it if you like, or ignore them if you don't want to bother.

     

     

    Who the hell are you, and why should I care?
    Congrats! You are a victim of Trollstar!

    The internet community is a joyous place with no snarkiness, self-centredness, sarcasm or misery. This thread confuses me, I need a lie down.

    No annoying animated GIF here!

    I'll have you know that I am the physical embodiment of sarcasm.  So much so that I cannot hold normal conversations anymore as people no longer take what I say at its own face value...and instead reverse engineer every word assuming it to BE sarcasm,  My yes is truly a no at this point.

     

    I suppose that makes me a woman, in retrospect.   Curses.
