Greater velocity of posts is limited to few frequent posters that indulge in constant bickering and nitpickings.
They are deading the forums and scarring away good content posters.
When you think the discusion is over, someone with defficiencies in selfesteem tries to bring down others to similar level, people oversize their egos to the point you think they will burst like baloons when you touch them, and they will explode verbally.
For a new player the forums are really off-putting and obnoxious, I read (some of) it but it doesn’t exactly make me want to be part of that community. Online is a minefield anyway and other game forums have similar issues but the signal to noise ratio seems much lower here. It’s also obvious that there’s really just very few posters who create the bulk of the posts and threads, it’s like a micro cosmos of terribleness.
Would I have read the forums before starting to play the game I’d probably not have started at all. In fact I created a Reddit account purely for this reason, something I never needed to bother with before.
I agree, if they would ban you, anderson, drac, lucas, balos current alt and that noorian guy (or whatever his name was) we would have a so much less trolling and a healthier and less toxic forum environment.
I usually have more important things to do than be the loudest complainer on an internet forum, so I like to make direct, to the point posts that voice my opinion without trying to start a fight. Just me though.
