I don't feel welcome in this SafeSpace
Nor do I feel like staying here, after being ignored for seven years

I just want to understand the psychology that leads people to volunteer for the hobby of moderating posts instead of investing the same time in the pursuit of collecting mechs and destroying others in combat.

For most humans the latter is more appealing than the former.

Is it truly a position without compensation? If not the description needs to be altered from volunteer.

Forums where never more active then back before the LRMs were nerfed into the ground...

There's just nothing left for top whiners to come whine about anymore, now that they forced PGI to make the weapons they favor reign supreme.

To make the forum more active we could always complain about having lost all those forum whiners, then surely at least a small bunch of them would come crawling back to revive the forum with their rants again.

Ok so after testing, I agree there's a lot less LRM forum whiners around now...

But I still blame that on the LRM nerfs : Undo the LRM nerfs and they'll be right back to liven the forums again :)

I just proved that it has not been altered.

Stop saying otherwise.

[color=#959595]And one last thing... Until making Tier 3, I did not see any players I knew from Tier 1 / Tier 2... So the stopgap is still in place.[/color]

That is not proof that the MM is not opening valves to allow a 4 tier spread. Unless you can "prove" that you know every Tier 1 and Tier 2 player in the game

I was saying there's a lot less LRM forum whiners : There's still plenty of LRM in-game whiners, and there was never a shortage of wannabe forum trolls.

I watched A S H stream this live, there were many followers in his channel that were Tier 1 trying to sync into him to mess with his experiment (lol what are friends for?). He was waiting 5-10 mins between matches, yet not a single one of these Tier 1 guys got into his games. He hits Tier 3 after 3 games, the very next game, sure enough, a bunch of these Tier 1's are in his game. Coincidence? Maybe. However, the amount of time A S H waited for a game should have opened the valves if it were the case.

I couldn't even get a tier 2 to sync with his alt account until he hit tier 3 and we both ended up in a "tier 1 game."

There are a lot fewer of us for sure because we all actually left the game ! I don't see a reason to play anymore. Everyone I knew is long gone. Pretty sad the way that went.

I keep hoping that MWO will re-activate at some point: it was a lot of fun a long time ago ! Even when people were complaining about LRM's.....
