GamingThread DOTA 2 Being Review Bombed After Racist Incident
Reason User banned (duration pending): Downplaying racism, long history of infractions.
I have to agree. I just grew up in a different time. I've heard it from white, black, asian, et cetera. I believe he should be fined and reprimanded, but I just don't see the point. If he antagonizes again give him a ban. Seems pretty simple to me.

GamingThread What did Horizon ZD do to make 30 FPS so smooth?
Reason User Banned (1 Day): Doubling-down on Lazy Devs Rhetoric despite previous warning.
Ehh IDK Uncharted was a little janky and blurry to me anyway. I think maybe motion blur or just something about it got to me at times. Horizon does too but not quite as much. 30FPS sucks though for sure. Bloodborne I just blank out of my mind when I play it. It runs a little better on Pro but dear god the game would look amazing in 1440p+ with better image quality and 60FPS. It's crazy going to my PC to play 1440p 60FPS DS3. It just looks and plays so much better. It's really sad they decided not to patch it. One of those instances where I would recommend people be called lazy or just indifferent beyond a reasonable scope. BB should have gotten a Pro patch.

GamingThread Zen Studios censors Williams table and will censor more in the future.
Reason User Warned: “Lazy Devs” Rhetoric. Please review our FAQ.
I don't think it's the point of what is going on that the changes are minor. I mean, maybe you would not care either if the changes were large. The point is changes like this are unacceptable to some people, and the reasoning behind the alterations seems to be: we are too lazy to make a properly rated game because kids buy our game in droves...

GamingThread Magic The Gathering: Arena going into open beta on September 27th
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inappropriate language and numerous accumulated infractions
Also, this meta is already slightly boring. From the counter whores to the weenie tokens, I think it is either join them or just rot at this point. There doesn't seem to be room for creativity in here all that much. If a counter deck goes first he can basically draw his way through his deck until he casts a planeswalker. It's such a simplistic strategy, but it does work incredibly well because there are so few creatures that can't be countered. Will be interesting to see how builds try to work at this kind of meta deck. What do you guys think works best against the counter/PW whores?

GamingThread It seems the talk of Ocarina of Time being the GOAT has finally died down
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Personal attacks against another member and numerous accumulated infractions
You seem to be of this opinion that your views on this subject matter a lot more than anyone else's. I'm just here to tell you that nobody really cares what you think, so you might want to tame down those heroic posts you keep making in broken English. Or not. Do what you want.

GamingThread Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account makes transphobic joke
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing Transphobia. History of infractions.
Outrage is just crazy these days man. It has basically killed comedy. It's so sad. That being said I don't really make jokes about trans people because I really don't know exactly how they feel nor can I imagine it really. There is a time for empathy and decent jokes. I assume Twitter is not the place for most people.

GamingThread Polygon: Tyler "Ninja" Blevins explains why he doesn't stream with women
Reason User Warned: Drive-by commentary, Objectification of women
LOL. We need more cute ladies gaming not less. That is for sure. Why would you not stream with ladies? It doesn't make much sense all told unless you have lost total control of what you do. Some weird issues here.

GamingThread EmuParadise no longer providing ROM download links
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Advocating + Admitting to Piracy
Damn man. They were a godsend when it came to tracking down some little games and easily downloading a good rip. But torrents have full collections these days. I have all that I want pretty much. I polished my collection a couple year's ago with everything and then some that I could think of for just about every system. Oh well I guess. Sad to see it when companies release so many shit ports or nothing at all. You can't win this fight. You can only dent good sites like Emu. Bullshit I say. Anything going on 20 years old doesn't even matter anymore in gaming. No one is making a dime off it. Emu was a not bad site either for those of you wondering. It made money off weird ads and shit of course, but nothing bad that I saw.

Keep waiting. I'm on mobile and this thread is already boring me. I wasn't under the impression I signed a contract to waste my time. Have a nice day.

GamingThread TotalBiscuit / John Bain's cancer has worsened ; retiring as a Game Critic, expresses future plans
Reason User Banned (1 Day): Derailing thread with conspiracy theories
No one is saying you are not doing your job, or that the loads of people in care are not doing their job. But for you to totally disregard the people controlling large sectors of power and trillions of overall dollars as just jolly good folks is completely ridiculous too. A cure all one pill and yer done type of cure would never see the light of day anywhere in this day and age. This is the age of profit and margins. Anybody telling you otherwise is pulling your leg. You can take that to the bank. If it were possible, it would be crushed by the hand that feeds in a millisecond. That much at least is certain unless a very good person actually ran a company that did not answer to share holders and profit margins. That however does not mean that current research is somehow all bad. Far from it. I don't think anyone thinks that way. And besides that there are other things you can do with nutrition available to everyone that can help prevent cancer. But Big Pharma technically, probably does not always follow through with some things they should take further. It has nothing to do with the scientists, and everything to do with the businessman that run the corporations. So I have no idea why scientists in general get so uppity about it. It has nothing to do with you. Nobody is calling you out personally.
