    I am getting so confused!!!!   First, we had carebears, hardcores, SBers. Now we have pseudo hardcores, jerks, and two bit carebears.

    surBear got a reaction from Jihan in Enemies. Who are they and who are they not.   
    NO! you are all wrong!!  Now you are all on my KOS list. And I know where you live!
     
    Actually, almost all of my online friends have killed me or been killed by me which led to our friendship.  If I kill someone and they start spamming crap, then they will likely be killed by me again.  If they are polite with a 'good job', 'how did you do that?' or some such, it will lead to a conversation which may lead to a new friend.  
     
    The only time I ever really have a KOS is when my guild tells us to put such and such guild on your KOS list.  If I run into such people, then I attack.  But they are not my 'enemies'.  Well, technically, they may be. But I do not hate them, it is just part of the game.

    KOS lists are gonzo anyway, hardcore (and PHC) have a whitelist of people they don't KOS. And it's a short list.

    Ok, this is from MY personal viewpoint.
     
    I am a really nice guy.  My grandkids love me.  My wife loves me.  Friends and neighbors tolerate me.  On forums I try to be witty, informative and bring a measure of wisdom to the discussion.
     
    I have not been very active posting on this forum(see post count) for a few reasons.  1)  our adorable first mod deleted some of my threads. (because his reading comprehension sucked)  2) the gonzo incident.  3) some of the Ace actions in re forum posting since then.
     
    If a line goes from point A to point B, it is clear where point C  is going to be.
     
    I hold high expectations for this game, so I dont want to do or post anything that may prevent me from playing. Hence, few posts and those posts are carefully worded to not land me in hot water.
     
    Not exactly the foundation for having a good time.  And I read and contribute on forums to have a good time.
     
    Do I want to attack people on forums? No.  Do I want to be toxic? No.  But the atmosphere around here is such that I fear being accused of those actions when that is not my intent.    
     
    So yes, some of us need to lighten up......but so should ACE.

    ASB(after SB) I played many many games, searching and seeking the ambiance of what I once had.  I would hear or read of a game, hit their forums to see what the game was like, then never play it.   I changed my m.o. and just d/l random games and played.  Then I would hit the forums.....and lose interest in the game.
    Finally reached the point where I just played various games and never even knew if there were forums connected to them.
     
    SB and the UBI forums went hand in hand.  Yes, the forums were hardcore and abrasive.  But they were fun.  Almost as much fun as the game itself, certainly they were entertaining.
     
    I understand what ACE is trying to do with these forums.  I hold no grudge against them for trying to attain their goals here.  But their actions are removing what little 'entertainment' there was here. Hopefully, the game will not reflect the forum.  And hopefully, once the game is up, the flavor of the forums will change to reflect the game.  
     
     
    Tl;dr   This is supposed to be a bloody, ravenous, free for all, gank fest of a game.  The forums are tea and crumpets.

    Just a thought here.  Are people attacking Canth because he made a stupid post? No. If that were the case, they would be all over Eonwe all the time.(love ya dude)
     
    They are probably attacking him because of a post he made 38 threads ago.  You know, same type of politics that will show up ingame.  Which will rebound back to the forums and echo back into the game until the flames rise gloriously to the heavens and blood and tears flow knee high across the breadth of the world. Oh glorious days!!!!!

    People are used to mmo's that require you to spend months or years leveling, questing, getting the best armor and weapons.  Just so that they will EVENTUALLY get to actually play the game.
     
    As I understand it, CF will let you hit the ground running.  You log in, pick up a stick or find a rusted bent sword and start wacking people on the head.  People that join CF a year after it starts will still be able to be competitive.  Now! not after months of catching up.  
     
    This is not what most people are used to.  Some people dont like things they are not used to.  Here in Texas, we have ranches that are counted in sections instead of acres.  Miles and miles of open range.  Yet you will find trails that are about a foot wide and 7 or 8 inches deep.  Cow trails.  Cows go from one place to another in single file, following each other.  Cows dont like change either.
     
    So let ACE blaze a new trail. Eventually the cows will discover it.  Then the mmorpg.com crowd will crow about how they backed it all along.

    Howdy Tyrant,
     
    Will the new "places the veterans can call their own" be opt-in forums?
     
    Do you plan to provide blog space in the future? If you do plan for blog spaces, will users have the ability to white list and/or block others from viewing/replying. Hint: Some of us really need a secure place to write about Crowfall much more in-depth than the current forum environment provides. While a personal page on FB or Wordpress, etc is a possible solution, I would hesitate to link anything I wrote from my personal pages just as a general security concern. 
     
    I think it would be cool of you'd structure the forums to reflect the rule-sets in the world rings. People can practice those rule sets to find one that fits their style best, so that they aren't confronted with massive cognitive dissonance when they attempt to post to the forums.  
     
    BTW, vegetarian here. Not all Crows prefer raw meat.
     
    Oh, and Todd stole "asshat" from me, I'm certain of it. What an asshat!
