I don't care who you are, what you think of the game, whatever. Thats your opinion and you're entitled to it. But the second you call out my friend, @Fluffeh, for cheating or any other form of misuse of the game, and thus insulting him as a person, then I have an issue with you.
Let me break this down. I met Fluffeh 2 and a half years back on Battle Dawn. We are both known players in the community, its pretty obvious that he's better than me but that doesn't matter. I met him there, we both started to play Supermechs. I was almost in a top clan at one stage, Littlelost I think. Then myths came out and because I was 15 at the time, I could not buy myths. So I fell behind, naturally. Fluffy invested a chunk of his pocket money (I think it was) every week into SM and eventually became a master strategist and a great player. He got into Reign and won all his medals by fucking merit. Everyone messaged him for advice, for friendly battles, etc. Almost nobody hated him. He was a role model for what SM players should be like. Just because he is a moderator with Tacticsoft now doesn't mean he didn't struggle like the rest of you. I know how many hours he spent grinding on this game to get to the level he got to. The money he spent. Because I rode the journey with him, and watched him come from behind me to pass me in skill and in equipment. So don't you dare drag him into your incessant whining about the update. Yes maybe the devs screwed up. I'm not one to judge because I haven't played for 1 and a half years now. But the moment I see someone insulting my friends dignity because of a gripe you have with the game - not going to stand for that.
And let that be a warning to everyone. I'm not a mod, but I'm friends with most of the mod team. The Eric guy that created multiple topics, hes been banned three days for blowing up the forums with incessant spam. Let me tell you, that was nice considering the shit he was posting. If I were a mod I'd be taking a much harder line, against all of you. Even if the devs or the mods or whatever of the games screw up, they're putting time into it for you guys. They don't exactly make millions of dollars a year. So don't make it off like thats what they're doing. Criticism is warranted, and encouraged. But this is stupid, honestly.
Take it or leave it. They're not forcing you to play. Hell, maybe this will finally get rid of the toxicity thats been growing on SM for years.
