OP  10/12/13 1:21:10 PM#1

One word that isnt allowed over at SotA website is the word carebear. That is a forbidden word to use when describing the PvE players. Ridicolous to say the least.

And here is a good example of what moderators at SotA allow when it comes to carebears describing the PvP players that enjoy non-consensual PvP and i quote -

" I know of (that is of, not personally) MILLIONS who have managed to RP without any form of PvP They came from before a time of Computer RPG's and they existed for a couple of decades AFTER CRPGs were invented....and they still exist today. I will allow that people who wish consensual PvP have a legitimate right to that style, however I will maintain and studies have been done to indicate that those who prefer non consensual PvP are frequently exhibiting sociopathic tendencies....and may in fact need help. Also Anger Management classes may be of use to some of those individuals. " end qoute.

This character named magiK on the SotA forums is allowed to put all these players together and call them sick people. Players that indeed enjoy a risk vs reward game with consequences should seek help cause they just are'nt not well.

I like the use of the word carebear.  Because once i see it I know that the post is worthless and to not even bother reading it anymore.

So why did you read this then?

Do you also like it when players that enjoy non-consensual PvP are described as sociopaths that need medical help?

Nah i dont take it personal but i'm surpriced that the moderators over at SotA allow a carebear to call others mentally sick cause they enjoy a different playstyle.

its their forums so they have their rules. If they want to prohibit the word carebear and completely ignore comments like the quote from that player its their own problem. At least you should be able to notice that  the guy you are quoting is just trying to feel good with himself by saying such absurd things. Society wants people to believe that if you act in a certain way you may need professional help and people believe that crap.

Yep, aint nothing wrong with being a murderer, pedophile , mugger , cannibal  etc. Nope, those people don't need help at all.

Good for them, maybe I should take a closer look at this game, perhaps it will have the right kind of moderators to keep the problematic players in check.

 

Thanks OP, new game to add to my radar.

"Carebear" has the quality of trademark and copyright, so Shroud of the Avatar naturally needs to be cautious about letting people use it.  Once I used the word "twink" in an innocent US government email message, as the technical term for a low-level character on which resources are lavished, and the entire message was blocked because the word was on an obscene word prohibition list.  Such is business in the modern world!

Obviously they prefer a civil discussion of gameplay ideas so not allowing it makes sense. People who love to pepper their posts with "carebear"  simply are trying to stir trouble and ignite a fight.  You love PvP, fine!  Understand there are many who don't and wish only to PvE.   Name calling is not going to change any of that.

So you like it when players with a different playstyle are called mentally sick?

But calling players that enjoy a different playstyle mentally sick is ok?

Are you concerned it might be an accurate assertion?

Point with the thread is that moderators over at SotA are biased. They have different rulesets when they handle PvE or PvP players. Corrupt might be a good word for it. They allow PvE players calling players that are in favor of non-consensual PvP for mentally sick but disallow a common word as carebear.

Yeah calling players with a different playstyle mentally insane isnt something moderators should care about. 

It is interesting to see how the carebears defend a character like this MagiK as long as he is on the carebear side, hypocrits.

You have given no reason for posters to come to the defence of your thread.

You lambast the moderators for allowing "Sociapathic Tendencies" to be used yet the word "Carebear" is far more recognisable to posters as a demeaning label.

Each of your responses has then taken the offending quote and demonised it even further, you have changed "Sociapathic Tendencies" to "Mentally Insane" aswell as other incorrect meanings for "Sociapaths".

Perhaps you would be better off airing your grievances with the moderators on that forum and explain that you feel labelled as an inferior player, perhaps then they may take you seriously when they realise this has hurt your feelings.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

"Carebear" is used as an insult. There is no other use of the word.

The post quoted in the OP may or may not have information to backup what they are saying. However, whether they do or not, their post can be proven either factual or false.

The difference is that "carebear", as an insult can't be either true or false. The statement quoted in the OP can be proven either true or false, and therefor validated or invalidated.

Where is this post of which the OP speaks? It's not at the link they've posted.

There is something funny in this thread, and the hurt feelings of the pro-PvP people who post threads like this.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.
