OP  6/18/12 10:07:29 PM#1

I got banned and thread deleted on official forum for posting this. Reason banned is "Obscene Language".
 

GW2 has zero downtime. Yeah a MMO with $%@#$# ZERO downtime. Ingame players will receive a notification saying "New build available. Please restart." THATS IT. No waiting countless hours to get some crappy hotfixes or new patch.

An action game needs 10 hrs maintenance? What a sick joke.

Sorry blizzard you are no longer the epitome of making great games. You were 8 years ago and you just stopped there. Its time to do away with this maintenance bull!@#$. Its 2012. You will be the joke of the industry if nothing is going to change for the next few years. Year 2015, 8-10 hours weekly maintenance? That will be a nice laugh.

What obscenity? I think i just hit their nerve. Last time i ever buy any blizzard product.

You go on a rant, where you swear multiple times, and call teh company crap, and expect them to just let your post sit there?

 

You broke the rules, you got punished, oh wait, i forgot, you can say whatever you want and shouldnt be punished for it.

 

If any nerve was hit, it was them hitting your nerve by banning you for breaking their forum rules, maybe next time dont use obscene language and you wont get modded for it, combine that with teh fact that the post served no purpose other than to effectivley say" yopu guys suck these guys are butter than you", which wouldnt fly on any forum.

 

Sounds like you need to grow up and take responsibility for your actions.

Masked obscenity is still technically obscenity.

^^^ you can always tell when someone was banned for a good reason, because they always go to another forum,,  act like they did nothing wrong and whine about how they were banned, and \how the company that banned them did it because they suck.

What the point of profanity filter if $%@#$(i typed these using shift keys) is still consider obscene and bannable. I think blizzard is just plain upset i spoken the truth.

Contrary to what you belive, a profanity filter isnt there so you can go on rants, you broke the rules you got banned, get over it.

 

Its no differant that in game in an mmo, just because it was a swear filter, doesnt mean you can go into chat and start swearing left and right without getting punished, guess you should have read the forum rules before posting.

"This category includes both clear and masked language in posts, signatures, and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

            
                Are an inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
                Are pornographic in nature
            

            If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

            
                Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity
            

            While these repercussions may seem harsh, we feel very strongly that this behavior has no place on the forums due to its extremely offensive and inappropriate nature
."

 

Again, you broke the rules, that you agreed to, and got punished, no one to blame but yourself.

 

And just in case its relevent somehow, I dont like Blizzard, or Diablo 3.

The ban was definitely deserved, sorry to say.

 

Still a good point to be made, though; Blizzard is rediculously slow with updates. If an update introduces bugs, you either have to just deal with it for weeks before they are adressed at all in the next scheduled patch, or else the the servers will go down again later the same day as the initial patch or the day after, and another 5 hours will go by before they're brought back up. It's absurd.

 

Even old-EverQuest, years before WoW, during the Kunark days when I last played, had a lot of small patches that took seconds to download. You'd just log on, the client would download some small file to fix a bug or two, and you'd get on and play, no big deal. Blizzard can't even do the smallest of patches without hours of downtime and massive amounts of problems. It's absurd.

 Now what do all those old games have in common I wonder? About four million fewer players. Blizzard's server farms are beyond huge. Takes time to patch and verify that many server clusters.

Never played a blizz game but I like the weight of their ban hammer. Deserved imo.

Downtime is downtime that will be downtime which will lead to more downtime while time is down. Stop acting as if they stole your last breath.

Don't do it then...

In general, people don't want to read that kind of thing and the people running the forums don't want to see it either. When you sign up for the forums, you agree to not use that sort of language. If you decide to ignore the rules you agreed to abide by when you sighed up, you can hardly complain when they kick you off. You'll get no sympathy from me on this one.

No you were ummm just being a whiner saddly with nothing to say constructively at all, and as such shoould be banned for it without the fact of the use of offensive language as well. You do not like how a company does it work just stop buying, and get over it prior to moving on, since it looks alot more you have a bigger issue with blizz than the maintenance time they take for their games. Honestly i wonder sometimes if you might be able to sighted as defermation of character or such for what you said, though not sure that would go for a company though. I would laugh my ass off if we see several people taken to court by companies for such posts, and than sued for what they said in their posts (mostly those that are compeltely unconstructive in nature.), since allowing people to get away with such things is kinda wrong on any grounds.

I didnt realize the real world was lala land, i guess where you live theres rainvbows every minute and candy pooping unicorns since its clearly not teh real world..

Fact, the op broke blizzards forums rules, he got punished for it, you can act like everyone else is wrong all you want, but your the one in denial.

 

He broke the rules, he got punished, thats it, theres nothing else to it, you can keep living in your crazy world if you want, but the rest of us prefer reality.

In which where you as a poster of a forum need to obey the rules that you agreed for the ability to post in their forum? Or where people should be held responcible for bad choices, and such so that they actually i don't know learn from them. Sounds more like you want to be able to do whatever you want, without fear of getting your privalages revoked for what you do, and that is a LaLa land if i ever heard of one.

If your going to go a games forums and bash their game I would suggest that it would go over a lot better if you would act like an adult and be polite.  Swearing and ranting like a child will simply make your post appear childish.

Unless you were actually referring to the CEO's pet canines, you referred to Blizzard staff as dogs. 

You deserved what you got. 

 

By the way, GW2 has 168 hours of down time almost every week.

When all has been said and done, more will have been said than done.
