I'm really enjoying the assumptions you make in this post. I'll illustrate how silly they are and then I'm done replying to you because we've derailed this thread enough as it is.
Arguing for current system (Inititative unchanged, new mechanics interacting with it coming later) is not hypocritical at all. Your suggestion was "old news" because your "suggestion" was to add new mechanics that interact with Initiative. This would be like adding a suggestion to add more "Sleepers of Avarrach" cards or to add new factions. All of these things were already known to be in the works in Alpha...long before this thread even existed.
Let's ignore the fact that I wasn't here during the alpha and that many posters other than myself are continuously posting iterative versions of the same ideas. Provide a link proving that someone suggested a system that overrides Initiative with cards that can only be played when you DON'T have initiative as illustrated in the example card Ambush.
Wrong. You only logged in to shadow the game after you were shadowing the forum. You saw my post, saw that I pointed out the fact you shadow and not actually play anymore, then you logged into the game, did nothing, played with no other players, left the game, then made this post.
So you have special powers allowing you to see exactly what I did for the HOUR that I was logged in? Then you should know that I spent that entire time playing games against the AI while I showed my brother (who is in town for a while) how to play while he sat next to me. He then played several more games on his own with several of my decks. I just happened to read chat while he was playing and noticed your discussion before I checked the forums after he got off.
Downrating multiple people dozens of times then going to their youtube channels to downrate every video on their channel is not cool. Hypocrisy in its' purest form is here. Also like to point out that the system was thrown out before I made those bug reports, so stop playing the anonymous card.
Now I'm stalking YouTube channels as well? Your magical powers let you see through the anonymity of the internet to prove that it was me? I wish I had these powers, maybe then I'd know what you're talking about.
And you're mistaken regarding the timeline:
March 1st: first round of bug reports associated with desync
March 10th: second round of bug reports
March 9th: Koey asks about disabling applaud/smite
March 12: Teremus mentions he removed said feature
Even if he posted 2 days after removing it, that's still at the same time you posted your reports and NOT before.
You smited MULTIPLE people, specifically, over and over again. You are (and are currently) aiming to damage the community as much as one person can. And if you can't do it on the forums (such as the system being removed), you'll do it outside of the forums.
You read minds too?! I'm actively attempting to destroy the community!? Gosh, I sound like a real awful person! Oh wait, that's not true at all and you can't read my mind so you have no idea what I am "aiming" to do.
You suffer from Diablo 3 Syndrome. Let me lay it out for you...You think the game is completely and totally broken and unplayable. You drop a massive truckload of huge game-redesigning suggestions and demand they be implemented. Anyone disagreeing (more than one person btw), got massively attacked on and off the forums.
This sounds like you can't shake off D3 forum-itis now can you?
I honestly think you couldn't have picked a worst game to use as an example. Here's why:My Diablo 3 Build Guide playlist from my YouTube Channel
I don't just play Diablo 3, I have 8 L60's characters and I actively seek out new and enjoyable ways to play the game. I then create guides for these "suboptimal builds" and share them with the community. A basic google search would turn up my name on Battle.net, DiabloFans and reddit where I participated in numerous discussions for these builds. I answered questions, gave advice and generally fostered a POSITIVE environment for playing Diablo 3. I don't even need to pull up the Diablo podcast I took part in before the host moved onto other things or the fact that I streamed D3 for several months before health related issues prevented such a time commitment.
I am so glad you attempted this line of discussion because you literally couldn't have referenced an instance where you are more wrong. Thank you for that
The fact that you've "gotten bored" of playing the game and faded back to "trolling the forum" as your endgame is only lingering proof of D3 syndrome. The community and everyone around it does not need you.
I am certainly not bored and the fact that I have contributed hundreds of dollars to this game to set aside cards/decks for good friends to use come launch further illustrates the fact that I enjoy this game very much. Whether or not I spend hours and hours each day playing the game does not change this fact. As for trolling the forums, you seem to think you're speaking for everyone. Others have disagreed with my suggestions, but never has it reached the point where they feel the need to take it upon themselves to attempt to force me out of the community as you are doing here.
That is neither your job nor your responsibility. If the people whose job it IS to do that felt I was a problem, they would have taken the appropriate steps to fix the problem. Given that this hasn't happened, you are overreacting and being needlessly dramatic.
I am done with you. I encourage you to move on as well as I won't be entertaining anymore of your confrontational antics.
I apologize to everyone unfortunate enough to have to read this.
