I'll start off by saying I enjoy this game immensely. I also enjoy how active this community is as far as helping each other out, posting info on here and just in general having some great discussions on play styles, baseball in general and of course CHEESING. It's greatly helped me since I discovered it mid season and on days like today when work is slow it helps the day go by reading interesting posts and having discussions about baseball.
That said, there has been more and more a toxic feeling lately on here. I dunno if it's everybody is so jacked for '17 and now that it's so close everyone is on edge and it's like blood in the water or maybe SDS is putting subliminal messages in their twitch streams and Facebook videos as some kind of dark social experiment... But Jesus Christ some people are being total toxic dickheads on here lately. I'm in no way offended, just more annoyed. I understand this is the interweb and there are always going to be trolls and what not, but for ****s sake, it's a god damn video game. You don't need to insult someone or call them stupid or question their life choices on a forum for a video game just because you don't agree with them, have had a different playing experience or have a better record or play more often or whatever. Not naming names, and I'll be shocked not to see a few of the culprits comment here, those of you who feel the need to comment and start an argument on every single thread to show us how good you are at a video game know who you are... But it's kind of gotten ridiculous and I'm hoping it calms down soon. Like I said, I love some of the discussions that pop up on here and really enjoy talking ball with people from different parts of the country and different fan bases. I'm not innocent here but I try and make even when I'm making fun of someone it to be lighthearted and in a joking manner, or if I'm complaining about cheese or some exploit I at least try to make it somehow a productive discussion. But good lord some people are seriously going a bit overboard with it. And even though it's not a flawless game, and again I am not innocent here, if you seriously are that mad that all you are going to do is bitch and moan 50x a day and constantly talk about how trash the game is, then don't play it. Maybe you should pick up another hobby like knitting or training carrier pigeons.
DEATH TO CHEESERS
