I got permabanned from a server this week for what I assume was running past the battle in the middle and killing the archers all the time, and I guess one of the archers was a grumpy admin. Can’t quite remember which server but I know it was a non-English one, so it may as well be the same server mentioned in the OP.

RE: Asshole server admin
RE: Pathetic Release.
It had a beta. It just was much too short.
But we all knew it wouldn’t be finished, didn’t we?
As far as I know, it only had a closed beta for those who pre-ordered. That kind of stuff feels more like promotion than beta to me.
I would like some creative voice commands to commend people on their customization colors.
RE: So a rank 40+ joins the server.. "Pro tactics / mechanics"
While I am rank 42 now I still play the game in the “normal” way and just focus on timing and aiming my parries/strikes right.
When I see some of these higher ranked players with their spazzed out mousedragging animations I definitely notice a certain… attitude they have. Like they have a really narrow view on how the game is supposed to be played, ironically enough. It has pretty much become a player stereotype for me.
If I beat them in duels without resorting to those types of minmax tactics, they get really pissed and start arguing or just plain insulting me. For instance a MAA player thought it was somehow lame that I was mostly attacking him from a longer distance with my longsword, not allowing him to facehug me. Or just recently I beat one of these players with a maul and he accused me of “ghosting” and promptly left. I don’t even know what the hell that is, I was just timing my LMB swings appropriately.
RE: Stop complaining
Ridiculous, overdramatic complaints are just another trope that inherently comes with game forum communities. The quality of the game is pretty much irrelevant.
I almost wish chess was a game invented by a modern developer with an active forum community of its own just so I could read all the complaints there about how it’s the worst game ever and horribly balanced.
RE: Need a cool gameplay video
I decided to compile a video of me playing sling archer in LTS and TO. Lots of cuts and edits, but I tried to balance it with a decent amount of fails as well :)
Maybe I’ll do a sling duel video next time. Those can get pretty funny, as long as it doesn’t degrade entirely into dagger combat.
