Roll Call for the 8 year forum members!

PhumadePhumade Posts: 2,114 Chairperson of the Boards
I got my 7 year forum badge last may, and there are less than 75 players with older forum acts.  Feel free to flex your 8 year badge.  I never thought the game much less the forums would still be chugging along.

I gotta admit the 10 year game and forum anniversaries will be special

    April 2014 here!

    I left the forum for like 5 years because it just became a toxic pool of hatred and negativity and anyone who enjoyed the game wasn't welcome.  I sort of came back by accident a few months ago and found that all those people were long gone and it's much nicer here now.

    I would be but when they did that forum update a couple of years ago even though I updated my info and everything it said to do I kept get an error msg that I wasn't allowed to view this forum.  I reached out to CS like it said to do if you had problems and that would fix it for a day or two.  After a few times of contacting CS them fixing it and then it breaking again I just said forget it and started a new account.

    Wow I wasn’t around back then but I can’t even imagine people here hating the game more than they do here . I realize people here actually believe it’s their role to “provide negative feedback “ or “ use constructive criticism “ because everyone loves being criticized by people who think they know more than the people who invented and regulate the game . I also enjoy the argument of “ I pay to play so I have the right to abuse the developers “ which is commensurate to  me buying a ticket for an event and therefore that gives me the right to throw things at them . If I had played back then I would have done the same thing and left the forum . I would love the forum if there was a read only version of it where they only posted upcoming game information then I wouldn’t have to filter through 90% of the posts to find the 10% that actually help me play and enjoy the game better . (Most of them yours ).

    It's like 1000% better here than it was years ago.  A lot of that is because they've improved their communication quite a bit (yes, I see you over there laughing at this...if you think it's awful now, it used to be a *lot* worse). 

    The other major factor is that the devs mostly stopped engaging here.  Once people figured out that nobody was reading their complaints, a lot of them just moved on rather than continuing to scream into the void.

    When the devs post something asking for feedback, or if there's a big change that affects a lot of people, you'll see all the old angry people come back for that.

    I'm on day 2016 but I lurked at the Forums for over a year before signing up. Things have changed here quite a bit but I like the community.

    Pretty close to what it was before. 
    However from what I could deduce on those days was worse yet:"I am a f2p since the game started but I don't need to tell it and everyone having better roster than me is a whale, so this game sucks and devs are hungry thieves. Time to abuse all we can, ranting, and bombing game reviews."
    Yes, I think the spirit was more related to that.

    Huh.  Apparently my 1st post was March 2014.  Stopped playing for a few year, and came back about 3 months ago.

    Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!


    I joined this forum long ago

    I picked the game up in 2016.  entrailbuckets is dead on right about the toxicity of this forum back then (and earlier).  Took a vacation from the game for a couple of years and picked it back up this year.  The forums are much better but the sub-reddit is still better.
