In case you are wondering, this post was directed towards the management of the site, and i would love to get a response regarding your stance on the matter of censoring posts with no warning like you did earlier today.
I was actually the one who deleted your comment there. Generally speaking, those types of comments (as you admitted yourself, non constructive) can be usually seen as just random trolling, meant to provoke our users into pointless arguments rather than serving any discussion purpose.
If you tell me that wasn't the case and you were only legitimately expressing your opinion and wanted an actual discussion, by all means I'll restore your post. But my personal stance regarding that kind of post is to be "safe rather than sorry". If you check previous news, there are a ton of negative posts about the game, and they're not deleted. But every now and then, it feels like someone is just really trolling everyone else. I'm sure you can understand why we have to adopt such a posture. As for the "no warning" part of the moderation, it's meant to give you the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes we gave out unofficial warnings for these, but they don't really work when the person is actually trolling.
Wait.. People are still playing this? Nothing out of the ordinary happened during the last two seasons to my knowledge, why on earth are people still interested in this game? Would'a thought people hated this by now
As for "what happened", you can check our recaps. Quite a lot happened to be honest, in terms of new content (new items, "new" skills/runes, rebalanced bosses, GRs, bounties, revamped journey, conquest, etc.) - which is why my first reaction was "is he joking or what?"
Thanks for the reply. I'll elaborate on why i said "What happened".
Very simply put, i feel like the only worthwhile changes to the game since adventure mode, has been greater rifts, Kanai's cube and the new adventure mode only zones.
I expect if i play D3 again today (Dint play for a long time) i will take about ½ hour before i've seen everything new, except for a few legendaries that i'll never encounter and a new difficulty level.. "Yawn".
in essence i just don't feel like the game has evolved nearly enough, since adventure mode has a vast amount of potential that has been left untouched since it was implemented. Sad story imo.
I'm sure many agree with me, since the amount of threads on this forum and others regarding the developement path D3 has taken and the dislike of that has exploded over the last two seasons (Alot of it due to the unchanged meta i suppose)
In any case. About the deletion!
I can understand your reasoning perfectly, and it makes good sense. I would ask that when you delete stuff, there should a Private Message sent to the user who posted the deleted content. Otherwise people are left with questions and a feeling of being censored away.
Wouldn't you respond negatively if you felt censored? Try to see it from my point of view :-) I already admitted i was being too negative, so let's meet in the middle and let this one pass into the forgotten threads. I got the clarification i needed and i've apologized for what i did wrong. No need to insult me.
