Begging and bull have been in UR since time immemorial. Nothings ever going to change that. The community isn't the problem. The problem is the game.
Don't hate the player, hate the... (how does that go?)
Hate the pony, smack the pony, kill the pony, eat the pony.
What me need is a moderated thread that offers constructive suggestions on what people would like to see improve.
the forums have an abundance of negatives pointed out with few suggestions (realistic ones) on how to improve things
a complete revamp of Standard Elo is needed i think. cutting back on Cr prizes is also another good plan imho
That, and let's not forget the obscene amount of blacklists handed out to the few people who do try to have constructive arguements/discussions. Or wait, that's just me.
Myeltd, I can't say I'm surprised you get blacklisted constantly
I think you are actually hilarious, but some players don't get that and misinterpret. Can't say I'm shocked.
That, and intelligence can either be feared or enjoyed. The fact that so many people have chosen to fear it as of late (or blast my inbox repeatedly with spam) sorta answers the question to this topic: community is dying, and losing iq points like water leaking out of one of those forest-fire water dousing planes.
Water Bombers, that's what they're called. (was watching old episodes of the red green show, and they just mentioned using one to take a photo of an entire town).
How do you realistically measure if UR is dying or not?
Nobody has said any facts; just personal opinions. If you are getting bored and think everyone else is sharing that emotion then game might be not extremely re-playable but that does not mean it is dying. Game is dying when it is losing more players than gaining.
Best real measure is to go to the rankings page. Take weekly rankings and start looking how many new players have adopted this game during last week and played actively, count away people with level >40 (they are old players) and count away half of the players
