  • Stop complaining about complaining!!!

    I am about fed up with people telling others to stop complaining about certain features and functions of the game they don't like. Forget video games for a moment....every product ever produced for consumers has had some complaints at one time or another. If they get enough complaints about something it gets fixed, recalled or patched in some cases. In video games weapons get nerfed, armor gets increased, smoke gets reduced, bugs get fixed, foliage changes, shadows change, damage radius's get smaller, vehicles move faster, ammo counts get increased, performance gets boosted, etc. because at one time or another enough people complained about something.

    BC2 is a great game, we love playing it and for the most part are having a good time, but it is FAR from perfect. If someone posts up some negative criticism about something they don't like that you disagree with fine, disagree and state your reasons why. But stop telling people not to speak their piece.

    If you're tired of reading complaints that people are making I've got a real simple solution for you...DON'T READ THEM!!!

    It is our [insert deity here]-given right as consumers in free-market, capitalist societies (well most of us) to piss and moan about something we don't even have to own in the first place. If a rule gets made that we are not allowed to post negative criticisms then I'll abide by it. Until then as long as a discussion forum is provided to me I'm going to discuss things I feel need discussing, even if for no other reason than to blow off some steam to the other crybabies who feel the same way.

    Power to the people!!!...rant over.

    But really, I agree; the servers are crashing all the time showing EA still has some work to do, we can just wait for them to get everything straight.

      Doesn't make it any less annoying or more justified, tbh.

            Dude, Quit Complaining about the Complaining...
            Geez.. Try to be positive about the Complaining and less negative when you hear folks complaining about the complaining...
            Now go out there and play... er... when EA is back up..get out there and get them!...and Quit complaining about the complaining

            ... Or I will start complaining about your complaining.

              I know what you're saying, but it'd be a mistake to think that one can post absolutely anything they want here. We're all playing the game. We all know what's broken. We all know what's frustrating. If someone has some solutions or suggestions on how to mitigate those problems then post away. If you want to talk about a rule, we're happy to go back and forth! :)

              You know that guy that complains about EVERY death in game? "AUH NO WAY MAN!! THAT'S SUCH BS!! I PUT A WHOLE CLIP INTO HIM AND *I* DIE!? WTF!?!?!".

              'That guy' exists on the forums too. Nobody likes that guy. Don't be that guy. ;)

                Completely agree, typing in in-game chat or raving in TS forces people to listen to you even though they don't want to, that I understand having a problem with. Here though you have to open a thread whose subject usually gives a good indication of what you'll find inside. As I type this there are 6 threads on the first page I have yet to even go into b/c I'm not interested in their subject. It seems that even though people hate complaining, they find reading complaints hard to resist for some reason.

                      Complaints about features and functions of the game should be directed at the developers, whining while playing or blaming the game for dying while playing only annoys the other players. Complaining on a community forum instead of suggesting ways to get around a game limitation makes the community look like whiners.

                      Whiskey nailed it, but left out the part about sending a message to the developers of the game instead :)

                        When people complain about X tactic, weapon, or gadget being unfair or cheap, it creates a great deal of animosity between those folks who view it as legitimate. I am not going to change my playstyle because you don't like how I fragged you, because I know I play within the rules and the primer.

                        I have noticed from the days when I played a lot of BF2, PoE, and PR mod here that those complaints and rants often create an atmosphere of hostility, and frequently find their way into the server and teamspeak during matches. In fact, I pretty much put down PR and PoE because of it. I just couldn't handle the constant questioning and insinuations. The last straw was when I was accused of using AT mines in an un-TG manner during a PoE match by someone on the opposite team with TG tags (for the record, I was running in and mining the road to the objective we were defending and someone thought it was a suicide tactic somehow).

                        I would rather play on a less-tactical server with people who are mature than on a TG server half-full of whiners, questioning everyone else's tactics during the match, and then afterward in the forums instead of simply enjoying the game and taking their lumps when they come. The constant complaining creates a poisonous atmosphere, and I often find it stems from someone peeved that they were killed in a way they didn't like.

                        I'm not denying that people break the rules. Also, I probably sound like the complaint police here, but I happen to know that this community has a great base of people who are mature and constructive and I don't mind saying a small group of vocal whiners can really ruin things for everyone.
