I am old already! :cool:

But hey!
what the heck is this new fashion of posting lot of trade threads in the general discussion forums?? :mad:

Also...
I see like 99% of them are made by people from consoles... does this confirm my old theory that consoles really are for people without enough grey matter to use a real computer? Want more confirmation? They usually don't even post platform/region in their first post until someone else tells them to do so! :rolleyes:

Almost done...
the game is for adult audience, wouldn't it be suposed that 17+ people SHOULD know how to read, at least read the forum/sub forum titiles???? :confused: :confused: :confused:

Lastly!
Why aren't any forum moderators/admins moving those posts to their belonging subforums or just deleting them as they should? :eek:



Done!
Really needed to spit it out

Thank you.

Maybe that's the problem, wonder if we advertise is as legendary sense more people would actually use it

I find this a little offensive . Just B/c you think 99% of the post (and you may be right on that number) doesn't make it 99% of the console population are doing it . So why are you lumping all of us into the category of having a limited number of brain cells ?

I suggest you re-read more carefully, because that is not exactly what i've said

I've went back and I still stand by what I said . Maybe you need to go back and re-read what you said and how you worded it .

It doesn't matter how he worded it since it's pretty spot on. Almost every person that posts a trade ad in General turns out to be from a console version of Defiance.

I would move from console to PC but I'm on a mac. A seven year old mac to be exact which means even if defiance ran on mac it most likely wouldn't work on this.

The problem with his theory is that just b/c 99% of the post are from console players doesn't mean that 100% of people that decide to play on the console is to stupid to use a computer .

The problem is the same for any conclusions based upon stereotyping. The actions of an extremely small percentage of one group is used to create a sense of superiority in another group. It can be said, based upon the limited numbers involved, that the odds are high that these type post will be created by console users. It cannot be deduced that all users are therefore morons, too stupid to remember to breathe, as the vast majority are not creating these threads.

Doesn't have to be 100%. The consoles could be intended for stupid people(per the theory) and because some intelligent people happened to buy the console it would water down the percentage. I play on the 360, and I am currently using a computer so automatically it is not a 100% statistic, but consoles could still be FOR people too dumb to use a computer. Btw, in your above sentence "is to stupid to use a computer" the "is" should be changed to an "are". Just saying ;)

If you do the upgrades right, it shouldn't be very expensive or happen very often. In my opinion, don't waste money on bleeding edge hardware that will only get out done 2 weeks later with no noticeable benefit to the end user . Get hardware that has been out for at least a while that will play existing games and will be upgradable in the future. I built one 2 and a half years ago for about $450 and can still play any game out there at high settings.

Btw yes a lot of trade/want spam is now in general, but if you look in Need/want you will see that some newer people are posting general stuff in the Need/want. And their (Bad) reason is, because those are the only system specific forums, and they (wrongly) believe their general complaints about the game are platform specific.

The odds only seem higher, because PC is it's own thing, where as there are 2 different consoles with this game, and OP is lumping both together. So the odds that you will see any post (not just trade posts) By a console players is a 2 in 3 chance for it.

Well i have a ps3 and a PC, i play most of my games on the PC though. Most of the games i want from PS now are only for the ps4 and i can't afford that upgrade, I can do more of a upgrade to my PC for less besides I am waiting for ps5 since they started work on it lol.

I'm probably around your age, lets just say 50+ and leave at that. I'm a little dumbfounded as to why you would bother to post anyway, some bran would better suit you methinks. You make a non-constructive post complaining about other people posting? Age is obviously no barrier to elitism.

If you don't want to read the threads/posts that annoy you why not just NOT READ THEM, rather than venting on the forums?

Btw did u notice, no platform or region? Unnecessary unless im asking a question relevant to the platform or region.

Disclosing platform and region is necessary as hell when attempting to trade with other players, that is all.

(grins) This thread was started as a rant about people's posting habits but found a new path. Now it's about clash of playing devices. Elitist PC vs common folk's gaming hardware, as usual.

My humble opinion about this topic:

No matter what device you use as long as you use your common sense with it. And post your trade offers in correct section of forums.

You are mmissing "Captain Morgan" and "Mulata", from the ones in your shelves, i hate Baccardi in all it's variants (without advertisement that brand would go bankrupts in no time lol) bbut Havana Club is among my favorite rons


Back on topic, well, my post had the desired effect, it certainly called people's attention, though it grew past the lack of proper posting habilities i alleged and that are the cause of my rant.

On a side note, i would really like to know more about those "PC Elitists" because i play on a 8 years old computer, which i purchased used and that costs about 1/5th of what any console out there costs, and it includes a monitor screen which consoles doesn't, and when some part of it becomes obsolete i only need to replace that specific part not the whole system as happens when a console is replaced by a newer model.

So, How in hell or heaven or earth can that be elitist??????? Please explain.

@Haruchai I complain of people posting in wrong section all the time because it bothers me, if it doesn't bother you then good for you, for some of us having some order in our lives is something important and we care about it. Actually, it has nothing to do with age.

I get your point :) I'm not old either but these new hightech stuff is confusing me sometimes, I feel like my dad hunching over my shoulder when I was writing commands in DOS on win95.

But negligence and failure to read forum policies and lack of common sense wont have to do with you getting older. Only the fact that the gaming generation gets younger and lazier.

There are two issues that occurred to me when I read the OP. The first is it is that it conveniently ignores "correlation != causation" due to the number of reasons that have nothing to do with the maturity level of console users vs pc users. The second is that even if it were true, posting about it does absolutely nothing to resolve the problem and in fact it only serves to polarize console and pc users. You can make a pretty good argument that this type of post borders on trolling so by your own logic we should assume that the majority of trolls are pc users.

F2P brought a large population of children. Free game means free loaders in most cases. In my past experiences when something went from costing money to free it usually attracted what we're experiencing now. When this game first launched the majority of players were college kids, retirees, and people working funky schedules. There were some younger kids but they weren't at the number they are now. The only loyalty they have is to themselves and even that is questionable.

If the game is this bad then take a minute and imagine what direction the world is headed in.

Some lyrics: Now Captain Morgan was a pirate dude
He used to jack mf-ckers and act real rude
As a real live person he wasn't much fun
But he sure made a good-*** bottle of rum
