Well, in fairness the last few pages consisted of an unhealthy dose of tin foil hat conspiracy theories. Not sure if you consider cries of "PAAAAWWWWGGGG!" your point being made.

And so is this one for reposting a locked thread.

Watch it go bye-bye.

Uh...I remember the thread, wasn’t your point that “Farming” was a what was driving new players from the mode?
What does that have to do with insults and/or COC violations?
Not following how one makes the point of the other or how they are even related. Help me out here.

Its probably best not to discuss this topic too much. Hopefully PGI saw what we had to say and took it into account.

Your not serious are you? The lords of MWO probably have not even looked at a topic or post on this forum in over 4 years it never gets above MOD level.

Its the same with Twitter and rededit you believe those are real responses by the lords of MWO? Not hardly just reply's by a JR staff member .

your just wasting your time dreaming of a different MWO in the future.GL have funPosted Image Posted Image

Ive been told by mods they dont check these channels unless they hear complaints.

Fw forum is a "sub-subforum" according to them.

I was just thinking postive, if they dont see whats going on so be it. FW will just be terrible forever then, and they will lose more new players. PGI is only hurting themselves if they wont bother to see whats going in in FP.

If by “forum” you mean the faction play room, then yes it has been awhile since a Dev has been in to engage, but even here there has been a drop in now and again in the last four years.

As to the MWO Forums as a whole, Devs do occasionally drop in albeit pretty rarely, but they do drop in on occasion (not just via announcements, I mean they participate in player created threads occasionally, Chris and Mike most frequently) and they continue to insist that they do monitor the forums. As to the latter, you may choose to believe them or not.

FYI, Chris and Mike both appear to be more engaged with Reddit’s MWO Outreach forum than here. Russ and Paul are near exclusively to be communicated with via twitter and only if the right tone or trigger is used (e.g. last time Russ was present on the forums was when someone asserted that PGI and IGP were one and the same, but on twitter all ya really need is a complementary tone or intro and he will often respond even when the question or comment is quite pointed).

I know we all have for 5 years but the truth is MWO is a write off for PGI it has been since Closed Beta it is subsidized by Canada government So the Lords of MWO have moved on to new games leaving MWO to be basically run by JR staff.

Im sorry but the lords of MWO have left us all and MWO on its own Special island to sink below the waves if it does not prove to be a viable write off or it does not get its special goverment money to keep afloat.Posted Image Posted Image
