Current thoughts on how and when SoTA will shut down

    I bought the game and then uninstalled and never looked back when I saw a bunch of SoTA ads on far-right websites. I just checked and the ads are still around those sites. If that is the type of player they are trying to attract there isn't a place for me in that game... (I'm not talking Drudge - go much further right).

    I can think of several good reasons why not to play SotA, but this isn't one of them.

    I log in often.  Too often my wife would say.  I enjoy the adventure of it.  It's a large world and I don't know much of it.  So its fun for me to go and find a new area and a new mob to see if it'll kill me or I it.

    And what were you doing on "far-right" websites?

    Stop caring if a game shuts down and move on with your life. It doesn’t actually affect you. 

    And that is not a whataboutism.
    Nope.  Just an off topic troll post.

    Or did you have an opinion on how long it will survive?

    Me, I think another few years so when it finally goes under RGs assets are fully protected from any investor or tax claims in case anyone were to try and pierce the corporate veil.
    You clearly don’t know what a troll post is. 

    And no I don't. It's a waste of time to care and there's no reason or benefit to speculate. I played the game, didn't like it and logged off.

    The deluge of negative press, reviews and comments, I'm guessing. Possibly also the fact that the game's supporters can't counter any of the criticisms with facts so they instead resort to ad hominem attacks.

    LOL. Fair question! I am politically active and work on various campaigns. I always want to know what people are saying, even if those views are different than my own, cuz I'm going to hear them said at some point and don't want to show my shocked face  :smiley:

    Lulz, let's see if you do. From Collins Dictionary:

    "If you describe something that someone says or writes as off topic, you mean that it is not relevant to the current discussion; used especially of discussions on the internet. A troll is someone who posts inflammatory or off-topic messages in an online forum."

    You clearly nailed it in your post, well done.

    Darn, now you have me doing it too.

    I always thought a troll was a someone trying to get a rise out of someone else. Not an off-topic comment. It appears this is a troll post.

    It’s free to try. There’s nothing stopping someone from testing it out. 

    Unless of course you always let others dictate what you do.

    Considering others' opinions before making a decision isn't even remotely the same as allowing others to dictate your actions, but....k.

    Yeah give it try. No one will tell you not to try it. No one here is dictating anything to you except what their opinion of the game is. You'll find most reviews of the game prior to and following release to today are most if not all negative, but don't let that distract you from downloading and trying the game out for yourself.

    Oh no I wasn't talking about your thread. My message was aimed at Kyleran's ridiculous quote that an off-topic message is trolling.

    Edit. And by "It appears this is a troll post." was aimed at my own message which was off-topic. :smile:

    I tried it the day it became free to play. My point was that if you read a forum or any comment and someone says some dramatic line like “ when is it going to shut down” or “ game is dead” and you won’t even attempt to try it then you could be missing out on something you might actually enjoy. It’s ridiculous to put that much emphasis on a single invalidated statement. 

    Now if you were reading reviews and getting an idea for what the game actually played like or what features it had, how polished it was, etc then formulating an opinion. Sure. Go for it. But doom and gloom posts should be ignored.

    How was I off topic?
    The OP asked what everyone's thoughts were on how and when SotA would shut down.

    Did you answer the questions? No, instead you offered him advice on why he shouldn't care, which is clearly off topic.

    Now we've got a few more joining us in this off topic conversation about what is a troll post, thread should completely derail soon so again I say, masterfully done.

    The bridge welcomes you.

    So why do you keep responding to what you deem a "doom and gloom post"?

    Don't blame me, Collins Dictionary provided the definition and example, I just shared it.

    Trolling well is an art form few really understand or appreciate.

    It's a combination of the effective use of logic fallacies, hyperbole, arrogance and sometimes psychopathy to achieve whatever the troll's objective is.

    Quite a bit written about the subject, here's a fun fact, there's over 130 types of trolls an online provocateurs identified by one source, iPredator.

    https://www.ipredator.co/troll/

    "Online Provocateur" that's going in my forum signature for sure. (Well, as soon as I get the spelling right)
