Players have been pointing out issues with bots, bugs, in-game changes they don't agree with (nerfs, class changes, monthly achievement changes, dungeon loot etc) and for the most part it had been polite feedback.

 

Now, however, as Anet has failed to address basic items like bots and bugs, has not listened to feedback around their changes in game, and have made other odd moves (such as the recent change in WvWvW to remove Orbs because of hacking issues and Anet inability to fix the game - so poof - gone now along with the bonus to stats they provided) people have become more vocal.

 

Moderators are now taking a very heavy hand, deleting threads they don't like, issuing bans etc. even if the "complaint" is voiced in non-hostile, non-vulgar way.

 

This is never a good sign. Moderators have far too much power, restrict the honest exchange of ideas and feedback, and the forums become the realm of fanbois. Same thing occurred with TSW - its not at all player friendly.

 

Restrict vulgar people -yes. Shut down discussion and feedback on broken elements of the game? Epic fail.

That's funny because I've been very vocal for engineers pve and against DR and the problems with MF and most definitely the downward spiral away from the manifesto that infused armor represents, they haven't touched ANY of my replies my threads or my complaints and some of them have been when I was angry and hadn't quelled my words in the slightest. hmmm must've been something you said i dunno.

so yeah, if they are deleting threads, its most likely because they are duplicates.

Many of mine were duplicates had harsh language and they simply merged them.

GW2 is such a horrible game and Arenanet is such a horrible company. Guess that is why all the servers are at  High at 12:00 PM EST on a Sunday and their XFire hours yesterday were 25K compared to Wow'S 31k. No need to bash TSW, FC up for sale says it all

don't the trolls realize no one cares about  these threads. These forums were long ago taken over by the trolls hopeing they can pwersuade 1 more person to their dying games. People will try and play what they want and what thier real life freinds are playing

COMPLETE BS mate, I´ve never seen similar fascist methods of censoring everything like Arenanet in ANY other forum, also certainly not TSWs, so don´t make up stuff please.

Yeah, it say McDonalds vs. 5 star dining, guess what is what - popular says nothing about the quality of games, it only says the more hype and advertising money, the more people fall for something and think this is the game to play.

Also ya know F2P with gambling boxes vs. Premium sub game... yawn.

you know in some cultures cockroaches are considered fine dining.

might just be me but I would rather eat big mac and I don't think I have ate one of those in close to 30 years now

 people have different opinions of what is a quality game and what is not. GW2, WoW, and TOR are the most popular game out there right now. Also bitching about popular games seems to be very popular on these forums. I suppose a lot of people here like the cockroach games

In my book popular is for easy minds. Think Justin Bieber. Or the latest "blockbuster" in cinemas. It´s very obvious and I tried a lot of "popular" games and only liked a very small number of it. GW2 is certainly none of the popular ones I want to play.

It´s just too... welI, I don´t have to say anything nice about it except that they have a good graphics- and marketing department, so I better stay out of this discussion.

You know, before gw2, Arenanet never had official forums. They just posted on gwguru and other unofficial forums. Then people complained and said they should have offcial forums for gw2. Now they do and again people are complaining. Sometimes, I wish they had kept it the old way, without official forums.

just out of curiosity what MMO's do you find mentally challenging? To me they are all just push button A then push button B, pick this up carry it to there time sinks. Only difference is how pretty their graphics are, the number of bells and whistles such as voice acting etc, and how they designed their timesinks.

no physical dexterity required like FPS games, no mental dexterity either like a good turn based wargame. Just devote x amount of time and you too can be get that uber armor or kill the raid boss. I have pretty much gave up on the genre myself, gone back to games that requuire something more than staying up all weekend looking for groups

Don't trust these people. They're crooks.

I'll always commend them for at least having a forum.  I lobbied for them and maintain that it was a good decision.  That's industry standard as far as I'm concerned.  Of course they're getting heavy-handed now, though.  They have good reason; players are furious, and the company is or ought to be in panic mode.

 

But I'd rather be over-modded by the developer's PR people than by an amateur at guru (or here, for that matter) with a chip on his shoulder.  The result is the same for stifling discussion, but on the official forum at least the developer gets the blame for censoring dissidence, as well it should.

Peace and safety.

As I have said before, their forum, their rules. Play by them - no issues.

 

Don't like how they moderate, don't post there.

Here, I put this in another topic and was re-directed to place it in this thread from that thread that was closed.

 

 

Check this out on the forum. A thread locked for feedback, yes you heard that right and like all after it they will be locked. At least it wasn't infracted lol

Image of mod post for locking:

Thread that was closed:

For anyone confused about the message here - it's funny. A moderator saying all feedback will be closed.

They should have never had official forums in the first place.  Too many people don't deserve to be heard.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

Forum moderation there is just as unprofessional as how they handle their broken-in-almost-every-aspect-game in general.

Gw2guru would have been far worse. Arenanet made the correct choice.

ANet's forum has always swung between '100% rules enforced all the time' to 'What rules?! lolololol!!!!111'.

I can't explain it but w/e, it is just a forum for a game. No big deal.

More infractions for interacting. When will people learn, you are not allowed to speak to the great OZ in this manner.
