Think of Gameplay with a more serious attitude- minus the complaining about X threads, the conspiracy threads, the MM threads, my team sucks, etc. Its more for organisation- read here for serious discussions instead of sifting through GD. To pull the already moved topics over I had to go back a fair few pages...

It's not the topic, but the content.

Is it possible then to restrict posting, to people who have played X amount of battles Mick?  This might help weed out some inexperienced posters with giving game advice, and also stop alt acc trolls ruining what could be a good section for serious discussions regarding the actual game.

 

On another note, how exactly is this going to differ from 'gameplay discussion'.  It seems like a similar section?

Lol, that means the forums would be filled with bots going to the forums saying "WG WHY IS MY ACCOUNT BANNED?" or "Y IS MY MAUS GETTING PENNED?"

Couldn't see a thread on prem rounds- only one that had been locked.

I'll ask, see if it can get a nice high game limit.

It differs from Gameplay in what it lacks- its Gameplay minus the whining, the crying, the MM threads, the look at my team, etc. Not saying these threads are bad, but if you want to find something interesting to contribute to, it can be a bit hard.

 

That being said, I might bug Conan to make it a subforum of Gameplay- but then it might make it messy.

Not a lot of threads that fit the bill, I went as far back as page 4 and this was what passed the minimum bar.

Hopefully this will make more interesting reading so players don't wont have to visit those other forums.

 

There should defo be a requirement on who can make threads here then. Like that Unicum library of Valhalla on the other forums which I guess is where you got the inspiration maybe. 

 

Edit: Didn't see Dong made a similar argument.

Remove the single biggest collection of posters from a section of the forums? I'm not that silly.

Game limit, the forums only have a limit for games.

Hopefully. Which is why there should be less skepticism, if the idea is to work.

 

And don't worry to much about threads. I'll be moving out threads that don't classify as good enough, and moving in ones that are. Comix will help out with the section if he passes training (fingers crossed).

The struggle will be that most threads meander between extremes whether we like it or not. 'Serious' stuff often gets mixed into whiney threads and v.v.. It is a nice idea tho.

There needs to be an element of complaint in any discussion, and anyone can come across as whiny if they work at it, that's not really a problem.  What we can avoid are those posts started with a whine for the reasons Mick posted above.

Could the title be changed to 'Professional Discussions'? Under which, it will say 'Leave your whine at the door'?

 

That way, I can no longer post stuff. :popcorn:

 

Seriously speaking, the title is rather aloof and distant. Something along the lines of "Sensible Posting: For Information About the How's and Why's of World of Tanks".


Those who persist in hating artillery only have themselves to blame when they eat CGC fire. In Himmelsdorf.

I know it'll create more work for our multitude of moderators, but can we have this section basically the opposite of the newcomers? Minimum post and/or battle count above 200 posts/2k battles? Stupid questions punishable with sanctions and that? Okay the last part is a little OTT...
