Here we go again.
Once again, we are seeing the powermongers of the community squabble and make grabs for authority and admin-privilege. It seems that some people in the community seek power for powers sake.
I can't understand understand the appeal or wish to host line battles through so many different communities. To my knowledge , we've got 3 running now.
Aside from MOV who runs international LBs on different times , which is all fine n dandy, the normal Australian battles take place at exactly the same time, with exactly the same rules and settings.
Now aside from stroking the egos of those in charge, all this serves to do is split the community up. Which means smaller battles, ultimately being less fun for everyone involved.
We all agree that bigger = better when it comes to line battles, so let's start working together instead of against eachother.
I do recall quite clearly after 2-3 years of the MOV-BG feud, I bought both parties to the table with a long forum rant , similar to this one, pointing out the absolute futility and pointlessness of splitting a community, as opposed to the endless possibilities of unifying it instead. Almost the entirety of the community agreed. We've seen the same again at the start of Holdfast - when these forums went up. There was a unified statement going out saying , 'No more drama.', coming from everyone, with the exception of a handful of known troublemakers.
The game is still Alpha so it's important to acknowledge that and understand there will be problems beyond the control of admins. If we all show a bit of patience and work together, instead of against eachother, everyone will have a much better time in game.
Lest We Forget NW drama!
