Hello tankers,

Everyone who's even so much as quickly glanced at the forums knows that at least once per day another anti-arty thread pops up. They are basically all the same and never amount to anything other than pointless fighting and unnecessary strain on the forum servers. (Some of the whine threads are very cleverly disguised as brand new ideas and suggestions to solve the "problem".) Most of them are started by the anti-arty people, obviously as a way to vent their long fostered anger about the worst and most unfair of all classes. So I wondered, why create new threads over and over if we could just provide them with one big thread where they can vent and throw tantrums as much as they want until they have temporarily calmed down?

 

It would surely be much more convenient and therapeutic for them since instead of having to start a new thread with their hands still shaky from rage and their mind clouded with hate from the latest match where they got nuked from orbit, all they would have to do would be clicking this thread and express their disgust and disgruntlement to their heart's content in an environment full of like-minded people. The rest of us wouldn't have to bother with even checking it or trying to reason with them. All of it would be in one place too and actual topics wouldn't get pushed back several pages.

 

If such a thread already exists, where is it and why isn't it being used? If not, anyone agreeing with me? ;)

 

Edit: TL;DR: Since people seem to not catch this, I am PRO ARTY. I am asking for a dedicated subforum or thread where the anti arty people can unleash their anger where I and other pro arty players don't have to see it since those complaint threads are flooding the General Discussion forum needlessly. And if we can't get that, then I would at least like to ask the mods to be more diligent about moving those threads to the SPGs Discussion subforum, where they KIND of belong.

You created another arty whine thread because of how many arty whine threads there are. GG

How about you take your "skycancer" thread and sod off?

Just trying to be constructive, and since no one else had proposed it I thought I could. :U

Are you trying to say that you're not tired of those threads?

Or they could make a whine forum, with the following subforums:

 

- Arty

- MM

- tomatoes

- Gold Ammo

- WE WANTZ MOAR FREE STUFFZ YOUR SPEZIALS SUKC!

- RNG

- Invisible tonks

 

And put an "ignore" option on it for people who don't want to read it!

I like this idiea. Whine subforum. Sounds cool.

 

The General Discussion subforum would become pretty much empty tho. :D

 

@OP: i think your poll is a little bit biased. :D

You must be blind, OP.

 

Arties are not that good. It's not the arties, it's the cheating tracking mod they are using since more or less 3 weeks.

 

So, if you want to rage about arties, go ahead in your useless cruzade against the innocent. If you want to do something useful in change, stand up for control of mods.

Did you guys actually read the post? I can't see whining anywhere in that post. In fact OP is an arty player too.

You can have a thread as long as it is in the correct forum: http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/forum/1545-spgs-discussion/  

 

The mods are being a bit slow about moving these threads recently.

Other forums have "Complaints" subforums and similar collective threads as the one I proposed. I don't understand why this forum doesn't seem to have anything like it. But then again I guess you could see the Vehicles Discussion subforum as such. Since the SPGs Discussion subforum seems to be almost exclusively complaint threads.

I was going to have both options be "yes" but the forum wouldn't let me, so I added a more polite option as well. :D

Once again my status message proves itself true:

But then again their replies were written rather early in the morning, so I can understand if they were too tired to have the patience to read my long intro post. :teethhappy:

Don't worry guys, I'm one of the most vivid arty defenders there is! Just because I was a bit sarcastic doesn't mean I wasn't being serious.

Ah, you added that reply just as I sent my post. It's what I assumed above.

But then again if they were all removed into subsections of the forum the General Discussion would be pretty empty

 

@OP - re. your status message "the lack of reading comprehension of the average user here is concerning".  It's concerning what?  You probably meant to say "is a cause for concern"

It might become much emptier, that is true. But I do see some threads that aren't just complaints pop up in between. It just seems like they're not there because they kinda drown in between all the complaints.

 

And psssst:

Or, and this is a long shot I know, they could fix their terrible mechanics.

This is the wrong thread to discuss that. It's about whether to introduce a centralized place for such discussions or not, and I don't want it turning into another arty vs. anti-arty thread.

Disregarding what it is poll about I really hate people twisting your hand to click what they want you to click. I would so glad to get chance to twist their arm OFC in real life.

 

Regarding Topic, What was a Forum about last year if not about rage towards arty?

 

Did it got to little attention? Have people that got buthurt have not done enough? Not enough Vaseline?

 

Or did Mr. Evil TD's took all attention to cries for removing arty?

 

Where did they touch you? Show on the doll.

??? Is this directed towards the people complaining about arty? If yes, then I fully agree to you.

And the poll was meant as a joke. :P No need to get violent. I had my arm dislocated at several occasions and if in any way possible, I'd like to avoid that in the future.

No, it isn't.

 

Im saying that a better alternative is to fix arty than create a sub-forum or thread.  I'm right.
