    So what do you think the introduction of factions did to our forum?

    I can't vote on this one as I didn't check the forums before the faction element was introduced. I don't know how the forums were before but if not for factions...I would not be on the forums...for better or worse.

    More bravado and chest beating by a few. Hey, but if that makes them feel good reading there own drivel then thats OK. I am hopeful it brings a lot more people here to discuss matters and drown out the unnecessary bravado.

    So I won't vote because its a worse place right now for my personal experience but I think it will end up a better place because of it.

    It is not the same for sure, since a lot of old timers are chatting within themselves only now. There is no need to come here anymore with the in-game forum.

    It is void of any usefulness. No offense.

    Put that in your poll.

    In my opinion, it's pitted everyone against each other. The once whole forum is now separated and clawing at each other's throats. Factions made it a race to the top and to stomp on anyone who gets in your way.

    little bot, you are right on, remember that beastlyman said it yesterday about kicking out soccerstud for sharing valuable information like how the wd pts were determined here.

    If soccerstud shared that information before factions were added, I'd safely bet that everyone would thank him and other people would even add on to his idea. But not anymore.

    He takes this GAME waaaaayyyy too seriously. Most of you do. That's all it is, a game, meant to pass time.

    I used to find it a fun, helpful, entertaining place. Now, not so much.

    Yes, the forum has changed. It used to be a helpful place full of knowledge and people like TrampStamp making new guides every other day helping out the new players. Now it's full of people like PJ, just trying to stir up trouble and posting stupid threads about how great PUN is and how they will win. Who cares? (That's just an example). There is also trolls, and too much recruitment threads and almost no helpful information. I say thanks to the people who still contribute like mxz and others.

    i find that theres alot of self-righteousness emerging as well. high ranked faction players refusing to acknowledge that theres alot of things going on in not-so-pro factions, problems they just dont have with 40 goldspending and well informed members. this used to be a casual game - it is not anymore.

    I've been thinking about this a lot lately. It has changed immensely. Maybe because of the factions, but a year ago when the game was still relatively new it was people sharing information and helping others. Not to say it was kumbaya, but it was much more about strategy and yeh, people giving others some crap and having some fun.

    Now it seems to be more about *****ing and chest thumping. Its not an awful place and sharing of information is still around but it's less of a community than it once was. Are there still Friday night fights? I miss the Bronson award threads. Is name that forumite still around?

    But the game has changed to. I just posted on another thread that what used to take people months to do (build IPH, build stats, etc) takes a fraction of the time now with boss events, factions, crates, mega money buildings, LEs, higher vault limit, etc.) I can remember going to the Docks to farm Amphibious Troopers. Lol! Does anyone still do that?!

    I sound old, but no I didn't walk to school barefoot and uphill both ways.

    I should also say that the great thing about the factions is I've gotten to team, strategize, get to know and become friends with some great folks from around the world. In the smaller groups you get to know people much better.
