You do realize you, Wulfhere, are one of the sites most toxic forum users, no? You spew bigoted hate-speech on a regular basis, and are trying to now blame other people for an imagined issue.
The game is more popular now than ever. The games playerbase is not dwindling. You might be more likely to notice that if you actually played the game though instead of just inhabiting off-topic and posting your alt-right bullshit.
I'm quite sure your post is trying to refer to me as one of the prime sources of "arrogance", but sorry to tell you, I'm not at all toxic to new users. I offer advice to people on a regular basis, and have helped teach dozens of players. I verbally backhand people who I consider to need to be shown their place, but I am very approachable and very willing to help others improve at the game.
I didn't say the game itself was dwindling I said forum activity is dwindling which it is. This topic has nothing to do with the game itself. Your post is predictably arrogant as I knew it would be; I knew I wouldn't have to name names because like moths to a flame the haughty pseudo-intellectuals would come out of the woodwork.
"Hate speech" does not exist. You are appealing to an intellectual high ground and yet you can't grasp that "hate speech" like every other designated form of wrongthink is inconsistent and invoked on a whim to shut down whatever anti-establishment view is being argued for without having to do any critical thinking.
The presumptions that you admit to making, that certain people need to be patronized by default makes you extremely arrogant. In your mind the people who aren't good enough as it is are eternally bad and need to be harassed. You relentlessly attack the same people for minor triggers and never let it go. You're even worse than arrogant, you rub off on me as a clinical psychopath or a sociopath.
