There are still ways to write down how inept things are. No need to swear, just say it in nice words?
And beware to " plus 1" someone who is going to get a warning point, they probably can see you "plus oned" them, so you get a violation too !
Of course, but the majority of the consumer base says things like "THIS SUCKS" "you suck" "company sucks" "WG Sucks" etc. Very few take the time to write out cause and effect on how, why, or how to rectify the situation. Mostly because it's just not worth it.
For every post you read "WG SUCKS!" you can probably assume 2 people stopped playing for the same reason this guy thinks they suck. So if you always have 3 people quitting, but you're only gaining 1 new person for every 3 that quit, eventually your population goes from Good to bad to worst. Planes is fortunate enough that it's a niche market, and even though we all quit and never want to come back. Eventually we want to fly again, and this is the closest thing to a classic aerial combat game available online.
So in hopes to hide the "WG SUCKS" posts, you make rules that allows you to get rid of the toxicity on the forums and makes room for new players to promote themselves and feel great in the environment. Naturally this will lower the talent pool and eliminate anyone who actually knows what they're doing; but, it will potentially increase profits. So it's not a bad move by WG. Doesn't change the reason they're doing it; but, we are fortunate enough that WG titles are so old and have such a bad rap sheet, that the population for their titles is already on the way out the door. So these new awesome rules will be enforced on no one.
