Hello, it is me again. This time I am going to reply to the topic author with a perfected mechanic of his own, which is taking one or two sentences out of someones post and then replying to those:
"If you want to sell gear to each other, that's what Realism is for. " - except there is about 20 active players within the entire game mode
"Realism was released in 2019 with a separate eco, but it still made sense to some of you guys to support making radical changes." - I thought this thread was about Ironman integrity
"What's wrong? Can't handle a different perspective? This is a discussion thread so I'm encouraging you to talk. Why make this personal?" - nobody has made it personal, only person wanting to make it personal is you with those 2 past topics you have created, trying to become some sort of a martyr and explaining your loss of veteran rank with those two topics, which are definitely not the case.
"Imagine buying a GIM/EIM tbow. You would need to provide the 2x GIM removal tickets (2x250 tokens) + pay the person who sold you the GIM tbow." - you forgot to add the 20+ day waiting timer
"Great! Now you know how the Realists felt when the staff & non-realism players started a suggestion + vote to merge a game mode they don't play." - why make this personal? this thread is about ironmen integrity, the feelings of realism players are supposedly irrelevant when it comes to ironmen modes.
"Flip that around. I'm not willing to try gim right now because the gim integrity is fucked... but hey... if you fix it... I'll promise to play." - okay i flipped it around and i still have hard time to care about it because i communicate with my group as intended, not hoping for influx of realism players in order to have some sort of a marketplace.
It is not even funny, how you are pointing out the realism topic, which has been in the history books for couple of months, several times. This just shows that you are still pissed about that topic and tryna create unnecessary attention within the forums. You aren't doing your reputation a favour with that, in fact your reputation is that frog in the well you talked about.
Please come to a common sense and stop aggravating yourself with those discussions. You make it personal for yourself, and to nobody else. Have a great day!
