cRPG?
« on: February 01, 2011, 07:29:32 AM »
Reading round the forums a bit, there seems to be a lot of hate against cRPG, or the cRPG forum. Why is this? As far as I can tell cRPG is a multiplayer Warband mod, or does that acronym have some other meaning around here?

The cRPG forum is/was filled with a lot of silly newbies. Thankfully, they're rarely seen or heard, but it doesn't take much to get some folk around here riled up.
They wanted to have a good time, but they were like children playing in the street; they could see one after another of them being killed -- run over, maimed, destroyed -- but they continued to play anyhow. We really all were very happy for a while, sitting around not toiling but just bullshitting and playing, but it was for such a terribly brief time, and then the punishment was beyond belief; even when we could see it, we could not believe it.

This thread sparked my curiosity and I payed the cRPG subforum a visit. The first thing I saw was someone with a brand new account asking for help getting their pirated version of Warband to work with cRPG. From there I saw complaints about server bans, and someone trolling those threads. I can see why there is a certain displeasure associated with cRPG.
Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.
— Bertrand Russell

cRPG, while a great mod, tends to attract a...... certain type of person.

People who prefer grinding and getting the top gear instead of enjoying the game itself.

I'll just combine all of the above.

They're idiots, that's why.

My only complaints with the cRPG's denizens occur when one of them feels entitled and/or superior and comes to demand forum changes or attempts to troll the OT. Oh, and the jerks that feel the need to punish the female players with endless "tits or GTFO" messages, but they fall into the "entitled" category.
Forgive me for not taking scientific advice from someone who thinks evolution is bullshit.

This is kinda like asking why people dislike mould on their food.


Jokes aside, I think there certainly are some decent lads among the ungodly mess there, but for example, I believe Chadz once said something about not liking how the mod was at the moment, and there were, honestly, people demanding him to change the mod in ways he did not like. That's also the entitlement Shatari was talking about, but it makes the lot of them look like assholes.
Nords ruled by King Ragnar, Khergits ruled by Sanjar Khan, Rhodoks ruled by King Graveth, Swadians ruled by King Harlaus, Vaegirs ruled by King Yaroglek. All those peoples live, fight, and die in the continent of Calradia. The Nords and Rhodoks field solely infantry and archers, the Swadians and Vaegirs have infantry, archers and cavalry and the Khergit field almost exclusively cavalry. No such things as "infarty" or "calvary" exist. Play Vikingr!

This. It blows my mind every time I see that.
Some of them act like they're monthly subscribers to something.

Add to that the load of idiots with female avatars pretending to be lesbians, the horrible trolls - horrible as in "bad at what they're doing" - and the whole gridning mindset many have. Seeing threads about how they apparently wasted time when the server has a roll-back because of some bug and so on. How can it be wasted if you actually would have had fun? :roll:

Also, why did you post this in the realm and not the Anachronist's Guild? And this is a silly thread in general.

It's quite simple, really.

Because
  • cRPG killed Native
  • cRPG players invaded Native
  • cRPG players have no skill
  • cRPG players are better than Native players
  • cRPG players like grind
  • Native players are boring
  • cRPG players are boring
  • cRPG is fun, Native isn't
  • Native is fun, cRPG isn't
  • some Native players have more fun than cRPG players
  • some cRPG players have more fun than Native players
  • cRPG brought new trolls
  • that threatens the old trolls

On a more serious note, it's a very simple human behaviour. It's the same reason why there are apple haters and apple fanboys. Once an underdog reaches a critical mass, people feel they have to take a side. If company/project/whatever xyz is small, you either like it, or ignore it. If it grows people need to take a side, because of various psychological effects that are somewhat related to jealousy. So ignoring is no longer an option, liking neither, so hate is the only thing left.

There is actually quite some literature about the subject, very interesting really.

So why is there so much hate against cRPG?
Because it's so very, very human.



The first thing I saw was someone with a brand new account asking for help getting their pirated version of Warband to work with cRPG.
The reason for that is that cRPG is one of the few mods that can't be played with a cracked warband because of it's centralized system. So people are surprised that they can't find hacked cRPG servers :)

However, good people, do not worry, we will ask for the cRPG subforum to be closed down for good soon enough, then you can go back to the joyful place the TW forums once were, before cRPG arrived.
Don't mind the donkey.

It's a shame the people have gone so rancid over it, your mod really is technically wonderful, chadz.

Isn't community-related stuff what the Realm is for?

I guess I get that a lot of them are entitled, and/or are asshats... but that's really not unique to one particular mod community... Off the top of my head I can think of a couple of pretty unpleasant mod subforums, but only cRPG receives this kind of hate. I was just curious as to why.

Probably because cRPG, by it's nature, tends to attract more trolls than others. That, and most of the fuckwits overspill of people posting in the wrong forums tends to be someone whining about being banned from a server and demanding re-instatement, which gives rise to a tendency to picture them as whiny little brats. Not to mention the two or three who wandered into OT and thought posting 4chan memes was a good idea ...

Innsmouth. :D

You should really do that.
They wanted to have a good time, but they were like children playing in the street; they could see one after another of them being killed -- run over, maimed, destroyed -- but they continued to play anyhow. We really all were very happy for a while, sitting around not toiling but just bullshitting and playing, but it was for such a terribly brief time, and then the punishment was beyond belief; even when we could see it, we could not believe it.
