    In that case, douse yourself in gas and light a match.  YOU have done more damage to this community and hence, the future game, than anything that went on in this thread.  
    And at the time that you did it, you only had 50 posts, so I am sure that you had no idea of what was or what was not detrimental to the company.  I think over inflated ego had more to do with this than any high moral standards you think you have.

    Doc, old has nothing to do with it.  My first great grandchild just turned one, and I am looking forward to introducing him to gaming when he gets older just like I did all my grandkids.  
    Ingame you are only as old as you pretend to be.
     
    As for the rest.....I am glad you chose to poke your head back in the door, but dont just stand there and let the air conditioning out, come on in.  I have been a mod and an admin and truth to tell, I wouldnt want to do either ever again.  Easier to herd chickens.
     
    I am still upset at the seeming injustice of your plight, I saw nothing wrong with any post you made(unless one was deleted) and to think some nub would have the power to do this makes me fear what could happen when the game opens up.  Some of us dropped a pretty penny into this venture and I would hate to believe some high waisted worm could deprive us of enjoying what we paid for.

    Meanwhile back on topic, no one should be playing Shadowbane right now. Magicbane and the SBemu are both cluster custards. The fact that anyone is willing to play them in spite of how screwed up they are is a testament to the allure of Shadowbane. She's the dark mistress that makes us abandon hearth and home to don the shroud of our destruction.

    I definitely feel like the mods on Crowfall should have a bit more leeway to post a bit more than on say, World of Warcraft forums. This is a forum of supposedly hardcore PvPers who are involved in politics, etc. If someone volunteering to be a forum janitor can't have a bit of fun, then why? They should follow the rules, but allowing them to take part in the politics is just as good.
     
    Its obvious when a mod is speaking on behalf of a company, when enforcing rules for example. Its also obvious when that player is just speaking as a player and fellow game enthusiast.

    Wow, this forum exploded yesterday, too bad I was gone.
     
    But, to voice my opinion before it gets locked, I completely agree with the OP.
     
    If you decide to have people that are fans of a game, pasionate fans, be moderators on forums you should expect them to voice their opinion just like any other forum user would.
    The only difference being that the moderator would be in charge of keeping the forums nice and clean.
     
    Also, in my own opinion, I find a moderator that dares to voice his opinion far more interesting than one who doesn't.
    Why would you become a moderator if you aren't even allowed to continue using the forums like you're used to?

    POINT IS.......Doc was being baited and maligned in that thread and he never lost his cool. He was calm and professional throughout.  Some nub who is a newcomer reported him because he thought a mod should not participate in a debate.

    I do understand this, Synast.  And I agree with you.  I have twice as many years as you do, and I am set in my ways, but not so much that I cant change at all.  
     
    Fact is, I have seen the changes in all the SB players also. The old Ubi forums were like a bunch of junkyard dogs in a wild free for all.  On these forums, those old dogs have become cute little pups.  Of course, I know that when the game opens up, those pups will grow fangs.

    Yes, SB players are all those things.  People that can not be described as such are all playing WoW.  
    To play in a hardcore environment, one must be hardcore.  So yes, we do, at times, look down on people that play those carebear games, but we are also the first to lend a helping hand and aid those new players when they join a game we love.  
    I have been a part of the SB community for many years  and I love them all, the creampuffs, the hardcore and the asshats.

    This is a big part of it. The problem is all we have is speculation to what happened since ACE is close-lipped about it. I think it's in bad taste if this is what really happened, and all we can do is infer that this is what caused doc to lose his status at this point. Really sets a precedence if Forumfall politicking and grudges can easily lead to good members of our community getting the shaft.
     
     
    Not going to lie and I know that it's wrong, but I have nothing but contempt for the doomgrin guy (or MaT or whoever is involved) at this point.

    Here's a place where, I think, Minecraft players may have an advantage over gonzo themepark MMO players.  Minecraft is pretty hardcore.
     
    Weapons, tools, and armor take permanent durability damage on use?  Check.
     
    Drop entire inventory and all gear on death?  Check.  Into lava, and thus instantly destroyed?  Check.
     
    Lose XP and levels on death?  Check.
     
    Get ganked 10x on your way back to your original death site in a futile attempt to recover your stuff?  Check.
     
    Spend hours building a machine or contraption only to have it ruined by a creeper explosion?  Check.
     
    Spend weeks building a house only to have it burn to the ground from a single lightning strike?  Check.
     
    Spend months building a base only to spend the final hours before a server reset laying TNT to send it out with a bang?  Check.
     
    One thing Minecraft players know how to do is say goodbye to their pixels.
     
    I fully expect to lose everything many times over.  In my first campaign.  And my second.  All of them, really.
     
    And, to bring this back on topic, none of that will make me sadder than if doc doesn't come back.

    I would like to see Doc come back also.   Sans toothpick, who cares, really?    He commands more respect than most if not all ( excluding their holinesses of course ) posters here.    I am hoping someone will let him know that he is missed for so many reasons.   We need MOAR Doc posts, especially with the wait ahead of us.

    In my mind it is very clear that ART made a mistake here. Thier behaviour also tells me how ART is going to react with the future mistakes - dig in, fail to communicate, and hope it blows over.
     
    I think reading this thread, that grew to massive size in just 24 hours, shows that community like and support Doc. Re-instate him, appologize to the community and all will be forgiven.

    surBear got a reaction from Eston in What are you doing to our horses?   
    Just watched the new video and it showed the progression of our horses being affected by the hunger. 
    This brings up so many questions; our horses dangerous to us as winter comes?  we cant ride our horses when the hunger strikes?  will we be riding along and suddenly have to jump off and kill our own horse?  instead of a mount, the hunger effected mounts become fighting pets?
     
    If our mounts can be affected by the hunger, then pack pigs, pets, and any other animals we use can become infected also?
     
    This opens up a whole new mess of beans.  OR......was this just a teaser to give us something to argue about but really isnt going to be in the game?

    FYI buster! Shadowbaners, were invited to Crowfall, so that they could help Todd with suggestions.
    So don't try demeaning the reason they are here.
    Shadowbaners aren't driving people away, it's people like you that fail to see past the end of their self opinionated noses that drive people away.

    I agree with you on those points. Crowfall will be far better than Shadowbane I'm sure, and far better than any other game I've ever tried.
     
    What we try to explain is that the vision of Crowfall comes primarily from J Todd, creator of Shadowbane, and what made Shadowbane so special, he's surely going to try and integrate it into Crowfall. Of course there are plenty of new ideas in Crowfall and a the stuff that didn't work in SB will most likely get reworked or abandoned. I'm confident that ACE is creating the most awesome game we've ever been given the chance to play.
