Political discussions

Recommended Posts

The way I see it is that if this was such an important thing to have at this stage of development then the fansites that provide it would be doing better than they are, because there would be more of a demand for it.

Yea, it's not too big a deal for right now I suppose. Maybe at the start of betas would be a good time.

The fight was always here and will always be here. The fansites that exist now weren't the first ones to pop up and they won't be the last. There was at least one that promised to be hardcore (a forums anyhow) and we all ignored it. Because this was where forumbane happened.

I don't believe that to be the case... when it becomes necessary for the community to have out-of-game hubs to support in-game happenings, I believe reddit will be the big hub for crowfall where people can post their glorious pwnage screenshots and videos and keyboard warrior each other....

There is nothing wrong with the forums I beleive, these are public boards of and ACE does not want to incur whatever possible repuational risks that stem from in-game conflict and people discussing it in a heated and faulty-humorous manner.

 

This is simply a different approach. Kind of like a bachleors party and a coporate meeting, both are used to socialise, but one is way less fun and more respectable.

The sad part is that the forum policies are directed towards that audience with kids from (10-15) years old, and they push away the old hardcore crowd at the same time as @Cannibal mentioned for a while now in other closed topics on this forum. And those hardcore guys wlll probably fix your game @Jtodd - it`s really, really dissapointing, because I know many who don`t even custard bother with this game/forum at the moment for the exact same reasons.

yes, but at the same time you don't invite the bachelor crowd to a corporate meeting, eh?

You probably need passionate people to start the hype. After you need more less hardcore people to make the undertaking viable.

The forums just moved on to a different level of maturity. Maybe as the game moves on and in game politics actualky exist they will move on to yet another level and implement a so called political forum.

I think this sounds very reasonable. Well thought out. Once the game is live, or at least we see implementations of politics into the Alpha/Beta phases, I could see a reasonable option to have a politics forum. I'm all for the mud slinging, loved it in EvE and even in FFXIV when you got to the poaching, carries, ect. All I would expect would be some serious moderation. Very clear rules to operate in, but other wise let it takes it course as long as we have some mods on the game for that forum.

If you use reddit I guess. Take a poll, coz I don't.

Reddit might not be worst choice for some trash talking, easy to link some pictures to and make posts. I really don't like the format though, at least when it goes beyond even a few comments.

This generation of gamers:

 

We want an RP forum!

We want a crafting forum!

We want an EK forum!

Political/PvP forums? Those are bad and trolly!


You are so incredibly helpful, CYT. I don't know how I ever managed to do anything before we met. I was just bumbling my way through life, all lost-like. Thank you. My blessing cup runneth over.

Well, my original point was that people prefer to troll official rather than go off-site, because this is where the "fight" is. The drama. The carebears. The goons. The white knights. The zergs. The legacy guilds. The hardcore. The PHC. And the voyeurs. The voyeurs outnumber all of us.

 

Off-site will never have the same impact, whether it's reddit or not, because this is where everything happens.

Nope, reddit is usually the major hangout.... that's where everything happens outside of the game...

Always the one to be stubborn. God loves you

Nope I just think it's good to let people know how modern game communities generally develop....

 

Most game companies don't want to allow certain types of behavior on their official forums... 

 

It doesn't really matter which url political discussion takes place in... If most people participate on reddit and reddit has political discussions it's not really that much different than that same discussion happening on the official forums, except when communites go to social hubs like reddit it allows for the game company to not have to worry as much about the headaches and drama of the community and they can focus on the game.
