After Fearless_Frog and Heinkill left this forum, I'm now following them. They were among those I found the most fun in this forum and with them and others gone, I don't see any point in staying here either.

For quite a while the trolling in here has become intolerable. It has become impossible to actually talk about the sim. I have talked to the mods, who also think it is a big problem, but they don't want to do anything about it. I can see that it can be difficult to do something effective about the issue, but why they have been happy to have trolls and haters constantly coming in here with totally off-topic spam is beyond me.

Anyway, SimHQ is no longer a place in which it is possible to come and talk about CoD. I'm heading off over to the 1C forums, where there is a lively and interesting scene around the sim. I'm learning something new every time I go over there and I really like it. Here at SimHQ, the forum is dominated by the trolls and haters, who even come to brag about how often they have been banned at the 1C forum, when they don't continuously insist on badmouthing the developers in the most disgusting personal attacks.

However, I don't really accuse the moderators of anything. They are unpaid fans just like everybody else. It is just that the ratio of useful exchanges to absolute spam has tilted very heavily to the negative side. It is just a waste of time to come here.

I'll keep making movies, but I will not post them here. This forum is not one I want to be connected to. I respectfully ask that members here do not re-post a link to my future movies in this forum. Those who want to see them can find them elsewhere or directly on my youtube page (see signature).

I'm a bit sad that it will be seen as a "win" by the haters that their constant spamming has managed to chase everybody else out of here. But, hey, that is the way it is: those few people definitely made this place insufferable for everyone. The site staff didn't want to do anything about it, because they wanted "balance". Well, the end result is anything but balance, because a lot of good people decided to leave. I'm not one of them, but I'm following them, because this place is no longer worth it and I value my time too much to waste it here.

Thanks to all who tried to make this a nice place to come and who posted interesting content,

Cheers,
Freycinet.

I also value your time too highly for you to waste it here smile

More seriously, it appears you are feeling sorry for yourself and hoping for some sort of fanfare.

As chief 'hater', both in terms of what it is you 'hate', and the use of the word, I wish you sucess over in the other forum. But I also happen to think if you adopt the same tone over there as here, you wont last long.

In reality, you are probably slightly embarrassed of your persona here, and this is a way of saving face possibly?

At the end of the day it's all just yacking about a (not very good yet) game, and you should have toned down the attacks a bit. That is what lies at the core of it.

Really? Just over the internet? I'm surprised at how grown men can take such things so seriously.

Anyway, take care...

Sorry a bit too much like melodrama to be taken seriously - especially in the context of RL.

Probably best to leave before the ignominy of a perma ban...

Oh and if you think the 1C forum is full of nothing but deranged fanbois, think again.

Ya when FearlessFrog left it was a real blow to this community. Heinkkill as well. We have only a handful of members who appear to be putting some effort into enjoying this game, but these are becoming fewer and fewer.

Does ANYONE actually take this guy seriously whatsoever ? LOL !

Sounds like the classic Drama Queen Ploy

anyone want to start a informal betting pool how soon he will be back ? hahaha

He'll leave when the government abolishes taxes and the rich finally decide they have enough money now and to share some of their wealth with the rest of us.

No doubt many will blame the so called "haters" for this trend, rather than look at the actual state of the sim itself.

If the sim was great and what it was promised to be there wouldn't be a whole lot of people out there hating it I can tell you that.

Not like they're are now.

Frey is a drama queen yes, but the majority of poster above are hypocrites...

@Frey

I decided to take a break from the banana forums for a while, I grew tired of the same tools posting the same cry baby post again and again frown (so yes I am a drama queen as well)

Its a pitty though I enjoy your vids, hopefully we will see more when the games fixed and the haters have gone off to hate on something else... thumbsup

P.S. The game is AMAZING loving it just wish they would hurry up with the sound patch, kills the immersion.

I think Bisher inadvertently hit the nail on the head when he said, "We have only a handful of members who appear to be putting some effort into enjoying this game".

When you have to make an effort to enjoy a PC game then something is fundamentally wrong.

This comment is a good example of what I outlined in the other thread....If in your mind it's a bygone conclusion, then why continually reiterate your views on this? I think we all understand which camp everyone is in.

On the other hand the OP should have known that these people would come to the wake.

As a moderator, it's frustrating. Unless someone violates the TOS, threads and posts stand.

I'm sick of this sim and I don't even have it yet.


The opinions of this poster are largely based on facts and portray a possible version of the actual events.

Two-thousand-five, I agree this game does require some effort to get good results and I'm okay with this, many aren't and that's okay too.

'When you have to make an effort to enjoy something then something is fundamentally wrong.'

I think two-thousand-five has inadvertantly described what is fundamentally wrong with our society today.
