Okay I've been lurking around the forum recently, really ever since my joke post (first post ever as well) for Fizzer brought an onslaught of hate tbh. So here I am again, posting. This time I really just wanna say that quite frankly I'm disgusted by some of the people on the forum (I will not name). The superiority complexes, the capacity to be judgemental, the sexism, the list goes on. There are several posts that have been made in the course of the last two months and just reading what is in them, the sheer disrespect I see... It really makes me sad. There seems to be this idea that if you have come out at the top on the 1v1 ladder, or are a long-term poster in the forums then that immediately grants gives you the God-given right better than other people.

There has been a lot of discrimination against new posters as well, possibly to deter them(?). To enforce the idea that the forum is for a select few. This is coming from a forum newcomer as well. Its not exactly like my opinion will have much influence, as my clan and everyone in it are condemned as Nazis (when really I expect people who play a strategy game to have a bit more scope to refine their point of view), however I don't remember when it was alright to be an all-out arse to someone for just even commenting. It appears to me that when behind a computer screen, it suddenly becomes okay to reject morals and become a morbid character that is a self proclaimed god within the realms of a browser based game. Its pathetic.

Again, no hate.

Or do I continue with the plausible google results?

Plausible google results do not apply to warlight forums. Searching the actual forum might help though.

I will avoid posting a "this is sparta" picture at this point not to confuse you any further.

But can i be named now? I mean didn't you feel heavily deterred from counter-posting?

All the long term posters get shit. X especially. Poor us. People should get told that theyre posting garbage, especially when they are. The forum is for the select few who have something insightful to say, a tentative welcome to the club. You never saw anyone give frankdeslimste or ps or chaos disrespect, they dont post much and they dont tear up the ladder and everyone is alright to them. People make friends with other people they chat with in the forum and meet up IRL. We are nice to each other.

yeah, it's not like x is a misogynic troll or anything. he doesn't deserve it at all.

in retrospect i think it's darn good time we start a frank vs chaos mud throwing thread! any takers? Pulsey? i know you're reading.

I don't mean to generalise on the forums, however some people I have seen can be real bits of work. You two aren't actually two I had in mind in all honesty. But is it worth believing that? Because even if it was you, I wouldn't say. This post is more a point about Warlight that I think is the area that needs improvement the most - people's attitudes. If it is really wrong to withhold information to protect other people as my opinion could be misinformed that which could lead to escalation then I am in the wrong. Too, I don't think it is wrong that I want there to be more respect for others on the forums. That is all.

The forum is not just for a select few though. I think that if someone partakes in Warlight, they have just as much a right as others to have a say on it, and then not to be gunned down by others.

YA?T stands for "Yet Another [username] Thread"

YAAT was referring a warlight player with his/her name starts with alphabet A

it's an internet forum, ofcourse some people are a bit of work, borderline ego centered douches. if you can't handle "public exposure" you shouldn't be posting. also, knowing that, you should always take things with a grain of salt, especially when you know the other folks are usually dickheads.

and now for something completely different, my perceived conditions for a thread to be labelled as YAAT (yet another Aranka thread):
a) people complaining something is wrong with warlight forum users (usually Aranka)
b) people still talking on the warlight forum despite point a) (usually Aranka)
c) random troll talking crap to get attention from female player (usually x claiming the female is not female, although dead piggy often used to contribute aswell)
d) random senior warlight forum poster fueling the discord (usually myhand posting random stuff, my favorite being starwars erotica, although he has been failing a bit in that department lately)
e) dead piggy just wanting to talk about the ladder
f) people calling it out for beeing YAAT (usually me)
g) parallel threads pointing at that thread (YAAT, like most forum memes, is a virus)

Well, thats a lot of criteria. Unfortunately this post fills a couple of those. However, I still stand to the point that it isn't cool for some of the stuff on the forums to be happening :/ I had a look at a couple of the Aranka threads.. Zap Rowsdower (is that X) posted a couple funny ones (Before and After Aranka). However, I don't wanna hop on any bandwagons. I just don't like some of the attitudes :/

Maybe one day I'll adjust to how things are run here. Until then I'll just keep reading.

Also it was nice not getting called Nazi thanks for that. :)(:

Damn, those nazis again...

but seriously:

+1 to ps

back to the topic:

really ever since my joke post - would be easier to laugh along with you if the joke was funny

onslaught of hate - rather onslaught of criticism over your leader's name, clan's symbology etc. If you would create a clan "Satan's Army", used a red pentacle as clan's icon, took a cat being eaten alive as clanpage image but said you are only roleplaying and have nothing to do with satanism, wouldn't you expect people to react alike?

I'm disgusted by some of the people on the forum - those people may be disguisted by a bunch of ignorant imbeciles purposedly or not, glorifying something outrageous.

The superiority complexes - sometimes refered to as "being aware of own skills"

the capacity to be judgemental - sometimes referred to as "ability to think and draw conclusions"

the sexism - sometimes referred to as "accepting gender differences"

sheer disrespect I see... - didn't you mean the consequent criticism short of neither sarcasm nor self confidence of the posters?

It really makes me sad - yeah. it's sad to argue with people who are right while you are wrong yet still insisting for them to take your side

..There seems to be this idea that if you have come out at the top on the 1v1 ladder, or are a long-term poster in the forums then that immediately grants gives you the God-given right better than other people. - seems you have a strong inferiority complex. But you may be right to a degree.. people who take ladder #1 are very good at strategic 1v1 template. It's safe to assume people who are exceptionally good at strategic templates most likely have above average cognitive abilities and intelligence.. THAT makes them able to win arguments against ignorant imbeciles. Frequent forum posters on the other hand are sometimes only trolls and attention seekers - now THAT's something to be ignored. If you can't distinguish intelligence from brawls.. then i pity you.

There has been a lot of discrimination against new posters - you mean new wave of forum trolls flooding forums with unlimited stupidity? I think nobody has anything against reasonable new posters..

as well, possibly to deter them(?). To enforce the idea that the forum is for a select few. - you are wrong.

This is coming from a forum newcomer as well. Its not exactly like my opinion will have much influence, as my clan and everyone in it are condemned as Nazis - no. you are not condemned as Nazis, only you are condemned as a bunch of imbeciles on purpose or by mistake glorifying Nazi germany.

I don't remember when it was alright to be an all-out arse to someone for just even commenting. - it's not for commenting. It's for being a part of a group mentioned above.

It appears to me that when behind a computer screen, it suddenly becomes okay to reject morals - yeah it's so much easier to roleplay dritte... oh sorry - Der Vierte Reich when being anonymous over internet than to get hospitalized after suddenly meeting somebody whose feelings your entertainment hurts.

a self proclaimed god within the realms of a browser based game. Its pathetic. - ooooh yes: you are..

Ok I take back the last one. you are not pathetic. you should be respected.. however being in T4R doesn't help gaining respect ;)

As for the frequent posters - we're not as harsh as we may seem at first. piggy's post nailed it.

I appreciate revoking the last bit.. However, T4R was mine and my brothers clan, I actually paid for it (2 and a half hours work! £4/hour :( )

I will watch the forums for now, I'd like to be involved in the forums but well, my initial post indicates my reasoning otherwise. You guys are quite intellectually intimidating! >.<
