    While I appreciate the humor, I dont think we should glorify raging at people. […] Dudes banned. Lets be the better people and move on. This is just getting a bit petty now. :/

    I agree with Garresh. Don’t get too excited about yesterday. Case is closed.
    So is this thread. In case you want to discuss this topic, please open a new thread in the off-topic section http://aow.triumph.net/forums/forum/offtopic/

    (I would prefer you would not open a new thread 🙂 )

    Thank you.

    Hi ExNihil,

    I thought about giving you two warnings for this one. Being well aware that you are breaching the forum terms of use and just abusing the 3-strike-system to place some raging that is heavily crossing the line is not acceptable. On the other hand, it could be perceived as being unfair, hence you get just one warning for this, but let me assure you without any doubt: One more tiny rant and you’ll see a rather swift 2nd warning.

    Lets face it. You are a piece of shit. You don’t play the game. You don’t understand balance. Your position is this: DON’T CHANGE THE GAME. Which is sort of weird, since you don’t actually play the game, so WHY THE FUCK DO YOU CARE? Go watch porn or do something else bored lonely people do, and leave us alone.

    * Stay on-topic.

    Consider this post your first warning, 3rd one will come with consequences.

    BTW I am willing to take a warning for this one, go call Sorax asshole.

    Counter for Bouh asking me to have a look at a thread: 0.
    Counter for ExNihil asking me to have a look at a thread: Lost track after 7 or so.
    People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

    On a personal note: I just don’t get it. Like really honestly don’t get it. This is the Internet. How can you allow the Internet to affect your mood in the real life so badly? If you dislike another opinion why not ignore it? Why not agree that you disagree? This is all about a game, it should provide fun and happiness, not this atmosphere.

    @all: Please stay on-topic

    Best Regards,
    Sorax

    in reply to: Price of new expansion #214601

    Sorax
    Keymaster

    I know everything costs, and stuff, but really… are there any discounts planned on Steam? 20 is way too much for so little content.

    For price of all of this stuff, you can get a AAA game, and have 10 bucks left, still. I think this might be a little high for people who do not know the series, to pick it up as is (61$, if you include “Deluxe Edition”). Even to me, getting this expansion for 20 is not worth it.

    Just a feedback from my point of view.

    Hi Perq,

    Apologies we chose an amount that is “way too much for so little content”. There will certainly be discounts on Steam in the future. You can add the game to your wishlist to get a notification when it is on sale. Chances are it will be available for 2 bucks somewhen in the next 10 years.

    Dear all,

    how much better I feel after having a halfling-like feast of supper!

    Is someone willing to re-post here the ideas from the 36 page monster? We don’t need all of them, but if you have any particular favorites, lets discuss ’em.

    ExNihil,

    This is not how it works. Please read carefully my statement @bouh:

    In general, I agree, these topics should be discussed together, however, this would result in an 70 page abomination, hardly readable, hardly value added.

    Although I (in general) agree with Bouh and share his opinion about discussing a topic from all points of view (including whether or not there is a problem at all), I tried my very best to keep the topics separated (following YOUR request in OP). Now, instead of being happy, you start to mix these threads together, asking to pull ideas from another thread? Really? So why do you need this thread then? In case there are redundancies, maybe we should just close this thread then? Logic is flawed here.

    You are giving me a rather hard time to keep this professional. Today was the third day in a row you asked me to “have a look” at this thread, which is totally fine, I offer this service to everybody, no matter how often it is used. But dude, 3 days in a row, really? I tried my very best to keep the topics separated, since I (from a mod-perspective) can understand your request. However, I’d prefer if you could stop “instrumentalizing” me by stating (in this thread) “@Sorax, please have a look at this”, “@BBB, please stick to what Sorax said”.

    I don’t care, this is not the thread for this as @sorax emphasized, so stop it here.
    […]
    Since you seem to fail to understand what @sorax was writing I will qoute it here one last time-

    I dislike this, I am sure the other participants of this thread are able to read and to understand my posts. No need to repeat it for them. Moreover:

    There’s a difference between questioning the utility of this thread (which is what Sorax has asked to not happen) and questioning the legitimacy of an idea (which is not what Sorax was referring to).

    +1. A good summary.

    ExNihil,

    I am really trying to help you, [and I am probably getting some hate for this at the moment] since OP should (at least imho) be able to narrow the topic/define the topic. However, if you want to interpret my statement as “supporting you in keeping everybody with another opinion out of this thread” – NO, this is not what I meant. Let me give you a (rather stupid, sorry, it’s late) example:
    If you open a thread with the (exaggerated) topic:
    “Dear all, the order of the alphabet is wrong, we should rework it. Let’s collect ideas for some proper solution. Everybody, please keep it civil. @sorax: Please support me in keeping all people out who DISAGREE the order of the alphabet should be changed at all (people who think there is no issue at all). My proposal is: We should move “D” in front of “B”. That will solve the issue” – then this is fine, and in this particular case, I took the decision to support you, simply for the reason that a 70+ pages thread is rather inconvenient. But now that somebody actually said “ExNihil, I disagree, the “D” should move in front of “A”, not in front of “B” you want me to keep these opinions out of this thread too? That is a big No-No, that is not how it works. Do not try to misuse my support.

    You are not in charge of policing the forum.

    +1.

    Bouh,

    This is not narrowing the scope of the discussion, this is excluding everyone who disagree. That is not how a discussion works.

    I already agreed to this (see above), and I fully support your opinion here. Still I feel in this particular case (we are heading for another 35+ pages), it appears legitimate to me to separate these topics in order to improve readibility. I accept it though if you disagree with my decision. Hence, can we please agree to disagree here?

    On top of that, how can you separate a discussion on theocrat buff against dreadnought from the actual theocrat vs dreadnought balance?

    Rather easy: Just asking you kindly to do so. See, on a personal note: I can assure you the dev’s will not change anything based on ONLY this thread. We are all well aware of the other thread with lots of different opinions. Hence, the best thing would have been not to post at all in this thread. We have some rather active users on our forums. You are one of them. Experience shows: If active users are not participating in a discussion, the thread dies quickly. Why heat it up, why not let it die? Isn’t this what you actually want?

    I’m sorry, but you will have to ban me if you want me to stay out of this thread.

    I don’t want you to stay out of this thread, I kindly asked you to separate the topics in order to improve readibility. I don’t know what kind of issues you and ExNihil seem to have (and frankly: I DON’T want to know it, it is not relevant for me), but the way you two tend to discuss some issues is confusing me every now and then (confusing since you are both adults, aren’t you?).

    Now,
    in general I start to doubt whether it was a good idea to try to keep things separated. Considering the amount of time it took me to sort things out here, a 70+ pages abomination is the more convenient choice for me. Hence, in my efforts to avoid accusations of “censorship”, giving y’all another chance to solve this without me. Currently, I am seriously considering the possibility of closing this thread in favor of the already existing one, asking all of you to discuss any theocrat balance topics in the other one.

    This thread is approx. this close to getting closed:

    Hi Bouh,

    It seems I was unclear, let me highlight it in bold:

    Nevertheless, since we all are aware of the history both of you have in certain balance discussions, it might make sense to open a new, separate thread in order to:
    a) keep this one “clean” in terms of readibility (no one really wants another 30-pages thread that will end up containing several official warnings after the discussion heated up).
    b) narrow this one to the theo vs. dread matchup ONLY, rather than discussing the legitimacy of this thread.

    I hope the two of you are able to sort this out without me. Hence, I am leaving things as they are for the moment, not forbidding anybody to post here (as long as it is on-topic and I consider Bouh’s posts as on-topic) or taking any other actions.

    However, in case I see no proper solution was found, resulting in a derailed thread, my reaction will be rather harsh.

    So I will simply repeat my position, because apparently we needed another thread for this.

    Please have a look on our forum terms of use:
    http://aow.triumph.net/forums/topic/please-follow-our-terms-of-use/

    * Don’t keep repeating the same arguments.

    Consider this post your 2nd warning, 3rd one will come with consequences.

    No value added here – none at all. In case you feel another user should also get a warning, feel free to add me on Steam and provide a link, I’ll have a look at it.

    @draxynnic : ignoring the question of the relevance of a buff is insidious. Discussing a buff to something, regardless of the need for the buff, instill the idea that the buff is a good idea, regardless of this being true or not. By simply discussing it you use people to it, and as they get accomodated to it, resistance to it fade.

    This is psychology, and bordering on conditioning. Even the craziest ideas become tolerable when you hammer them enough, consider them normal, or discuss even worse ideas.

    In general, I agree, these topics should be discussed together, however, this would result in an 70 page abomination, hardly readable, hardly value added. Hence, in this particular case: I am kindly asking everybody who wants to discuss the legitimacy of this thread to use the other one:
    http://aow.triumph.net/forums/topic/theocrat-endgame/
    Even if this thread ends up having only 10 users participating, who agree, this is fine and does not make their opinion a generic “truth” that will affect dev’s. We still have the above mentioned thread with lots of different opinions. ExNihil narrowed the topic of this thread, which is fine and understandable, since some users (including him) tend to love walls of text. To sum it up:

    Except that we already have a 35+ page thread to debate whether it’s needed or not. That amply shows that it remains an issue on which there is disagreement. We can continue the discussion on the “is anything necessary” there.

    Beautiful, +1.

    Now, since a thread never needed so much unnecessary mod-attention, we spice things up, to make people think twice before posting. Next one to breach our forum terms of use in this thread: instant ban for 2 weeks from the forums, no matter how many warnings. Deal? Please behave. Please keep it civil! If a possible post does not value, don’t post it at all, let the thread die, stop heating it up.

    …but I just wanted to take a second to say that that is dumbest thing I have ever heard on this forum. Apologies to both Zaskow and Bouh for everything I ever said about the intelligence of either of you
