GamingThreadWe need to talk about how toxic discussing the Epic Games Store is when it comes to accusations and insults
ReasonUser Banned (2 weeks): Inflammatory generalizations against the community, attacking moderation. History of similar infractions.
Maybe its time everyone here came to terms with the fact that this community is extremely toxic. Just because the website attracts a certain demographic doesn't change that fact. Most times I don't even want to post something (including this post) because I just know I'm gonna get an aggressive and emotionally charged response so I've went back to mostly posting memes, that's all this place is good for without one losing their mind.
Even that previous administrator, SweetNicole came out and said some not so nice stuff about the community in the Etika suicide thread as soon as they weren't part of the mod team anymore which makes me wonder how the mods really view the community behind closed doors. But you know what, they enabled this, this is their monster. Apparently its OK to be as toxic as you want as long as you adhere to the website mantra.
For the average sensible person who just wants to have game discussions without it becoming toxic and politically charged everytime, we have nowhere to go. GAF has become a turdstain and ERA is too busy tearing itself apart. I hope things get better but after 2 years its obvious the problem has spiraled out of control and the mods have no answer (with how unprofessional and unqualified some of them act, I also have to question the vetting process and the people selecting the mods)

RIP hype fella, may he find the peace he never could in this world.The mods here are far worse than the GAF mods ever were. Besides Cerium, the lot of them are ban-happy power-trippers who continue to expose themselves one after the other.
GamingThreadRAGE 2 will skip Steam, launching on Bethesda Launcher, pre-orders are LIVE for all platforms
ReasonUser Warned: Platform warring.
What, suddenly PC gamers don't love the open platform philosophy of PC and not being tied to a single walled garden like those pesky consoles?
Steam has been around for well over a decade and had time to work out the issues. New launchers will have issues and won't work flawlessly from the get go.
