(OT)Ramblings of a madman... So we have a bunch of new members here in the forums, great. Read the FAQs and blame Durf for the things you didn't read...or something. Anyway, what's with the forum nowadays? There's people asking for stuff outside the giveaway thread, you do know that that's there for a reason don't you? Well, this is still only a small and rather meaningless matter in the big picture... So what's the real reason for this rant you might ask? Well, how come one can't post politely anymore without getting flaming and accusations all over the place. Sure there has been issues that are somewhat shady on whether it's accepted or not, like the -seed command, but even there just how difficult would it be not to post flamings or accusations on the issue just because "you" don't like the way "player this or player that" found an "item this"? If there's not a rule or general concensus about the issue, you can disagree on the legitness all you want but do not flame anyone for that. Then there's the high level runes issue. Whenever someone posts that they've acquired a high level rune there's instantly million of posts saying how "the highest I've ever seen is Um, that can't be legit". Just because you have had a bad luck with finding runes doesn't mean that everyone does. It's all about luck and propabilities. If you play alot, you're bound to have more chances of those lucky streaks, it's as simple as that. And so what if someone posts that they've cubed a rune this or rune that. We all know how incredibly rare the higher level runes are, we all know how much it takes to cube even one Vex out of the low level runes, not to mention the highest ones. None of us have any proof whatsoever whether these people have used illegit means to get the runes or not. Sure you can doubt their legitness, but as you have no proof, be quiet about it and make your own decisions on whether to trade or play with the member or not. And another thing here, a player might have a Zod rune and Tyrael's Might for example and still miss more common things like Hotspur or Lenymo, that all just depends on where you play. One can't expect low level stuff dropping on Pit or Baal runs. And at the same time, one can't expect the high level stuff dropping in act1 normal, they just don't, they can't. It's as simple as that. This is the Single Player Forum, if you doubt eveyrone's legitimacy, you have the option on just reading the strategy tips and guides here, the information about the game and all that, and then go play alone or with someone you don't doubt at all. That's completely up to you. No one is forcing you to trade, or to play MP games. Basically what this rant is all about is this: the forum FAQ says the same thing I say here; if you don't have nothing good to say, don't say anything.
