I dont hop on forums ever. They tend to be filled with saltiest and most "richeous" people in the world. Despite this fact i hop on in the hope of discerning PAs future after not hearing a peep for months. Two minutes into hopping on the forums and already it looks exactly the same as a forum for company wars in EVE. Blame being thrown around like last weeks garbage but no one realized the toddler swallowed a chicken bone and the dog is giving birth to geese. Instead of level headed debates and solutions, (which to a third party seems quite simple), i find a preverbial pile of ****. Before i dive into this pile I want to make it clear that this pile could not have been made without the love filled food(gamelanetary Annihilation). Without this love for the game the forums would be dead and the playerbase nill as everyone goes off and try to find something worthy of our time that fills of with the same thrill we get playing this game. So how did our love filled delight give way to this cancerous tumor. From several hours of surfing through sewage( at least it felt as toxic as the elephant foot in chernobyl) one can deduce that the head members of the clan cult feel as if they are being mistreated through admin abuse on the forums removal of community events from announcements and what i can only assume they assume through a game patch or change in game files by mikey denial of server access. On the Opposition are the respected heads of the PA community the moderators, who are endorsed by Uber entertainment to keep an eye on the community they built in their appearent abscence. It is claimed that the clan cult runs a for profit program with plagerized mod(s). In the end it all comes down to perception and the one thing lacking ive noticed while sifting through the forums is formality. Although On both sides of the pew there seems to be emotional post, cult seems to be more loose cannon in what they say damaging whoever they can to get their points across damaging their reputation and how they are viewed by the community. It doesnt help Cult's leader seems to be an egotistical self instated bougoise of PA claiming only the top players should decide balance and screw the rest, if the pros metas does not work nothing should. On the otherside are the moderators who understandably may appear to be emotionally charged in regarding to issues including abuse of the PA population and plagerizing of anothers modded work. Uber left them the responsibility of watching the community and keeping it safe not cuz they get paid but because they love this game and this community. One cannot help but feel enraged witnessing something you perceive as cruel and dispicable happen to your loved ones leading to unfiltered reactions in some cases. In the end the PA community would be better off if cult stopped its campaign against uber(its akin to the heart giving the body a heart attack cuz it wants more exercise, only ends up with the body in the hospital) and a formal meeting between parties and a uber entertainment rep to clarify on eula and copy rights for game mod authors with the idea in mind that everyone there loves the game as much as the next person. It doesnt mean you have to like the way they go about loving it. Side note: Legion Expansion Insomnia version is a blatent ripoff of the Legion expansion and would have been better off from the get go with permission before work gets started a new name for mod completely seperating it from the original mod, different unit models and just utalize the skelatal structure of the mod. At the moment it would last 20 mins in a copyright court 5 for the judge to walk in 10 to hear both sides fully 4 to load up the game on a potato then a minute to realise there is not enough different to constitute uniqueness from the original.
