#4058807 Don't be an asshole

Posted Nadagast on 21 February 2014 - 12:09 AM

I'm sure everyone has seen how much trolling and general douchebaggery have infected AJ.  I'd like it to stop.

Trolling and assholery puts AJ on a downward spiral.  People troll/asshole-it-up, which leads to less people using this as a forum for serious/reasonable discussion, which leads to more trolling, etc.  AJ always was and continues to be the most popular place for new players to get into the PvP scene.  Any community relies on new members to sustain itself--by making this place a wasteland we are doing nothing but ensuring our own demise.

Before you post a reply or topic, ask yourself: am I being an asshole?  If you are, change your post to take a more educational tone.  If you're feeling heated about something, take some time to cool off before replying.  Don't immediately assume someone is trolling you, some people are just not very knowledgeable.  Worst case, if you reply in a calm educational manner, you've posted something informative for the hundreds or thousands of lurkers who will view your reply.  These are generally newer PvPers, and anything you do to help sustain them as arena players helps all of us.

On any set of forums, it's easy to forget that almost all of the people reading it are lurkers, who will never make any posts.  Lurkers cannot be trolls, they can't be assholes, they are just here to learn or read interesting things.  Post interesting, informative content.  Post drama if you want, but don't be an asshole.  Fuck the trolls, post for the lurkers.

Posted Nadagast on 16 October 2013 - 06:33 PM

I'm open to suggestions from people--send me a PM if you think you have some novel or insightful info.  But please don't message me if you think I/we already know, I don't wanna get spammed.  :D

I'm happy that this is happening, it's one piece of evidence that shows Blizzard is really trying.

#3938677 The Truth; 5v5 Tich Disqualification

Posted Bailamosx on 13 September 2013 - 01:05 AM

I consider it a great irony that we are to automatically presume this team's innocence because Kisz is a nice guy, they're Korean, or because Azael titles this thread, "The Truth" followed by an oddly placed semi-colon. I wish to have this noted on a similar topic concerning the presumption of guilt or innocence: Dannycarey is also a nice guy, he's an extremely talented and methodical player, and, he's going to Blizzcon because of it. And yet, I recall watching Azael indict him on stream, without proof, decrying Dannycarey as a, "no-name shitter that cheats". Thus, I challenge Azael and co. to have the decency to tweet, Skype, stream to clear the name of Dannycarey with the same type of publicity (as displayed here) with which they besmirched it.


#3932489 There's too much on the front page

Posted Bigmoran on 28 August 2013 - 10:32 PM

Posting this here instead of site feedback so that it can actually get some attention/confirmation.

At the moment there are far too many new posts on the front page, causing my entire browser to run slow (I would like confirmation from other users).

I don't speak for everyone, but I personally would appreciate it if the front page was limited to 2-3 news stories or condensed posts (so that 40 seperate embedded videos don't have to be loaded).

Thanks,
Bigmoran


#3930560 Top 2 from EU & US goes straight to blizzcon, no regionals

Posted Nokilolz on 23 August 2013 - 05:22 PM

i just bought FFXIV, only 30 bucks plus i heard good things in streams, it releases tonight if you pre order go get it now!


#3930490 Top 2 from EU & US goes straight to blizzcon, no regionals

Posted Capstone on 23 August 2013 - 01:50 PM

i think it's a good policy to hold players to clear simple rules:

if you get top 8 on the most competitive and historically corrupt ladder in the game, they will change the date that the season ends within a week of it ending, and then tell you that if you get top 2 they might take you if they want to

whats so hard about that guys

Vanguards and me will ask about that tonight.
Please ask these 4 questions:

1. Tournament realm was not mentioned, does this mean the 2 highest rated teams on EU ladders are getting invited to Blizzcon? As in, current rank 1 team on Misery (2822 rating) and rank 1 team on Cruelty (2808 rating)?

2. If the top 2 on Tournament realm get invited, why wasn't this clearly stated? Since top 2 on tournament realm does not equal "Two of the highest ranked teams" ; Why don't they hire someone with a clue to proofread these kind of announcements to avoid confusion?

3. Or is it just Blizzard's way of telling that the US and EU competitors are already decided? If this is the case, why get people's hopes up?

4. If the competitors are already decided, who is the guy behind the decisions?


"If you're an Arena competitor, it's time to hone your skills and get ready to fight hard for a spot in the event."

Think you forgot to tell the main piece of information: How to fight for a spot in the tournament, gratz Blizzard.

#3930065 Top 2 from EU & US goes straight to blizzcon, no regionals

Posted Azyos on 22 August 2013 - 10:05 AM

So, what I can conclude from this is that qualifying for Blizzcon is a popularity contest monopolized by only the most disgusting of nerds.
