Some people just want to whine and have other people to circle-jerk with, is that what this thread is?

I love constructive threads like this.

 

But hey, at least it's not another "BOBJECT OP" thread, so I'll take that as a positive.

I've not found it interesting, in fact I think you are doing it all wrong.

Yes. Getting any positive feedback from the usual Job Knockies. I assume that is what you are referring to.

Nope, try again. I have this problem; well you could trying doing this; stop being so negative. Sounds reasonable.

Had to vote no 'cause it's hard to say who "the usual subjects" are. I can guarantee you that no matter what you post, somebody's going to vehemently disagree with everything you say and will forever come out of your mouth (or fingers), and that inevitably somebody's going to derail the thread by whining about artillery (most likely), winrates (second most likely) and/or matchmaking (third most likely). Chances are purely my estimates of course.

 

Now if you wanted to know if it's possible to ask a serious question on the forum and get a lot of serious and constructive replies, yes it is. Is it also impossible to have a civil discussion about some things (primarily aforementioned 3 subjects).... not impossible, just very improbable. It's also worth considering that those have been done to death on this forum for years now.

 

Quite frankly this forum's main problem is that there's very little that is simultaneously actually on-topic and actually worth discussing seriously.

There are players that frequent this forum in search of the wealth of wisdom the many players have to offer...

 

There are players that frequent this forum just to be part of a big club of circle-jerks who give eachother reach-arounds without not even discussing tanks or tactics..ie a big social gathering for the non interested..

 

There are players that frequent this forum that are willing to share their wealth of wisdom and expertise with others...but i fear they are being nullified by the latter?...

 

..Many just come here to keep up with things and after filtering through the rubble actually find out what they seek..

 

 

Over time you will see and decide which is which..

Of course it is possible, and most people are more than willing to help with serious questions.

 

The problems arrive when a 40k battles player asks a question such as "What is that silly square in the bottom right of my screen? It's blocking my view of the plants so I turned it off, do I need it?

Is there a list of, 'The Usual Suspects' ?

 

Is it something I should be aspiring towards ?

 

Do I get a badge ?

The key, my good man, is to post on a subject that they do not care about.

Unfortunately, this often proves difficult when faced with a multitude of half-wits that derive their own self-esteem from mocking others.:(

It's a shame that they have to be like that, but if it makes them feel better about themselves, then I guess we shouldn't begrudge them that small mercy.

Either way, chin up old chap, don't let them get you down:)

Nothing wrong with a bit of fun in the forum i agree...i just cant be done with the usual suspects attacking newer players with genuine questions (No slight on you btw)...after all isnt this what a forum is for??

 

..Its the reason i dont come here to often tbh...i get more info from watching streams of late..

 

 

..This forum is starting to become stale and dare i say it? 'Old hat'...Repetetive!!

 

PS was gonna try the shower but could not fit in the sink as it was busy..

Entirely depends on your understanding of "a simple question" and "the usual suspects".
