GW2 fan here, you are just making GW2 fans look bad. :|

Just follow the rules on your forums and don't get mad when you get in trouble for breaking them. Yeesh.

He broke rules WAAA qqq, all i ever talk about is rules... Is that right i don't know could it be seen as wrong possibly better not break rules.

My god what type of unthinking sheep do we have to deal with in this age.

The rules are clear, you only want them to conform because your so used to conforming yourselves.

 

"This category includes both clear and masked language in posts [This is not defined, is that innuendo or mispelled], 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

$%@#$#

        Not a word at all, not even masked, there is no word there. Watch jimmy kimmel's unessecary censorship you cannot tell what this word is in refernce to, thus by their RULES as clearly stated it is not a violation.

bull!@#$

       OK this on is masked, but is not a "refernce to human anatomy or bodily functions" Nor is it pornographic. AHH i love rules, you seem to love them also... but agian you don't wanna play by the rules yourself. As you can clearly see this doesn't meet the requirement of the stated rule.

%^-*

        See the first entry, this is not a violation of the stipulated rules/agreement.

            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."

I might as well live in lala land; one could argue that his post went aginst the spirit of the rule. But then agian his usage of them is not agist the spirit of their rule. Thus you have admited you break the rules...

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

You beg the question here (its a device that pretty much poiints out that you have not made an arguement or shown someone to be in error, just stated they are.. and that they are agian).

So who is in denial the person who takes the time to link the language code without seeing id it actually #$54S^d (that is "applies", see thats a masked word but not an inappropriate masked word).

Thus i can easily do this:

"Yeah a MMO with [absolutely, abouts, hardly, monkey {however this one is not logical}] ZERO downtime. "

"Anet is the real modern game developer. Tell yr CEO and his puppies to make a studio tour of Anet and learn some professional [stuff, skill, #$%$ {could a masked word if that what this is be another masked word?}, task, traits, care, anythign else your midn wants to put here]"

Now you could state  well i know what he ment, NO YOU DON'T. you believe you know what he ment, as there is a high likelihood your correct in your assumptions. But the rules do not dictate that a person can be banned for what a person posting may or may not be thinking while typing the post. And short of that by their stipulated RULES he was banned unfairly.

This was a great post. Now on the other hand because i don't care that much for the rules, more about intent, reason, force, and outcome. He was obviously banned because he typed the true that blizzards upgrade/server system is worse than that of MMORPGs from 12 years ago in a non-persistant game.. Which is just junk i mean its awful. On the other hand Anets system is amazing advanced, fast, and effective.  And blizzard no wanted to deal with that morsel of truth.

Bite my fiery metal ass!

Blizzard's 'magic number' when it comes to swearing seems to be 3. 1 or 2 times is generally overlooked, but 3 times and your ass is grass. It doesn't help that you were bashing the game too. Don't take it personally though, the mods over there are even stricter than the ones here.

I got banned today for posting on a thread about an interview with Jay Wilson when he stated that they got 'mostly positive' feedback about the story. I posted something like, "I want to know who the idiots are who gave them positive feedback on the story so they can be properly defenestrated." A little harsh perhaps, but the story of the game really is terribly done.

Did I deserve a 3-day ban? Possibly, but not for 'harassment'. Exactly who was I harassing? I didn't name names, I didn't call anyone out, just made a general statement. Then again, I guess expecting them to list the reason as 'we don't like negative opinions of our games' is a bit unrealistic.

Funny thing is, they didn't delete the post I supposedly got banned for...

The ban was justified. You didn't follow the forum rules. On a side note, yes Blizzard is behind when it comes to other developers. I don't know if it's cause they got complacent due to WoW or they simply refuse to rethink their methodologies. However, if they continue operating in this way they'll shoot themselves in the foot. Trion, ArenaNet, and other developers push out quality controlled patches and content at a much faster rate than Blizzard with minimal down time. Blizzards need to get on board, or they will be left behind.

And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

But what about the rules?

Some people in  this thread seem to believe you follow the rules or else?

But if the mods themselves don't follow the rules (or even apply them equally).. then guess what, there aren't any rules. Not really.

So rules be ... ,oh i better not finish this statement i could receive a ban, bahh i do it anyway, So rules be $#%*%#$

 

 

PS $#%*%#$ = logical

2. exaggerated publicity; hoopla.
3. swindle, deception, or trick.

Lol, that kind of downtime for a patch is silly. What happened to Blizzard? Did aliens snatch them up and replace them with replicas? It's just so bizzare what they're doing these days.

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.

Anet is the real modern game developer. Tell yr CEO and his puppies to make a studio tour of Anet and learn some professional %^-*. Bring your little notebook with you.


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

There usually are forum threads for complains and suggestions on official forums for games. You didnt complain or suggested a change in a respectable way. Like other person here said, you just called them crap in their faces. Im not defending Blizzard, that works for everyone... so even on the internet you should at least show some respect when talking about a company's service on their own forums. Complains and insults are two different things

If you go to my official forums to call me crap i emotionally hurt you with the: -> the BanHammer, in yo face.

EDIT: also read forums rules

Masked obscenity is still technically obscenity.  

That is rather weak argument. OP should have been banned for trolling if he should have been banned, not because he wrote signs that could be interpreted as foul language.
