Yep there were such times in old forums. Not so much nowadays though. Everybody gets bashed there initially. It is their acceptance ceremony or so Back in the day when I found the BK swords attack speed buff that was nerfing its zodiac procs, no one believed. I made a forum post and then a reddit post*, developers immediately responded and fixed BK sword. Apparently we had been using it bugged from the beginning. But it was faced with criticism initially (this bug fix let us drop some CdR from Zodiac build and place those points in to IAS increasing WW BPs). However, there are so many knowledgeable players there and intellectual clashes are inevitable. One must know this before doing any discussion there. However, at the end of the day, they know how to make peace as well.
Streamer or not, Hater or not. Im not here to brag or flex. But not to long ago I came here to discuss my achievement for a s17 which was i became #1 ww barb of NA server in s17 and immediately I was bashed on. From that day on I never felt any appreciation for my work I did in such little time with a bunch of people Hating.
Once again i come here to say, Haters going to hate. Trollers going troll.
Blizzard is doing too much already to police our every damn move.
Unless the guy incited harrassment, just stop crying and move on. Anyone is entitled to criticize posts online. There are no real names involved. If he asked his followers to do anything, it’s a line crossed. Just showing and commenting is not.
I guess my question is: Are you doing this for a good reason or just to get back at someone who hurt your feelings? I’m not saying it’s one or the other, I don’t know. But lately i’ve seen people acting more and more like they are a snowflake or made of crystal glass.
I know personally that’s not true. I’ve had a post flagged enough that it was hidden. No action was taken as a result of the flags (as it didn’t breach the CoC) but the post was never unhidden after manual review.
Jeb was skeptical, which isn’t bashing, and Micro (who is, I want to stress, not welcome as a part of the greater Barb community) had . . . something (?) to communicate to you. As for me, I congratulated you, then explained it wasn’t the top WW clear that Season. You replied. The whole conversation was pretty friendly.
Here was what I said to you:
And here was your reply:
I may be just a dumb Southern fella, but that there looks pretty friendly to me.
Maybe you’re referring to Endeavor’s response in which he points out there was a higher NA Hardcore clear, and while I admit he can be terse, you were never bashed.
So, yeah. Not bashed, and we didn’t sing your praises to the high heavens, but . . I congratulated you and encouraged you to record videos of clears so we could archive them?
Agreed. But some of these accusations are just… bonkers. Edurty getting “bashed?” You can see the entire conversation above. It’s like saying he felt “unsafe” because someone disagreed with him. Some folks feel they can use whatever word to mean whatever they want it to mean, and that’s not okay, particularly when it’s being used to discredit or attack others.
No if, buts, or hows. Drop the stupid conversation. This will go nowhere, and you guys all know it. BE WELCOMING< OPEN YOUR EYES AND EARS>DON’T PRETEND TO BE THE TOP DOG OF ALL>IN THE END<IT DOESN’T MATTER
