Okay, no problem.
Anyway, anyone who has a bit of brain wouldn't judge our forum/commnunity just by looking at the OT threads appearing in the recent activity.

... I guess.
You guess wrong then. Most of the time that I check out the forum, the latest activity feed is flooded with complete off-topic crap.

In fact, I am quite tempted to delete my bookmark of this forum. Hardly any kind of interesting discussions come up anymore.
It might be that people have run out of subjects until a new patch/DLC lands, or that I have my expectations set too high.
I would have loved some discussions about specific maps, about the meta-game, etc, but these hardly pop up.

The forum has become imo a circle-jerk of ego boosting between a handful of members, with forced memes and inside jokes.
Which might be fine on it's own, but it's just not for me.
I found a temporary fix for you.

As much of a point you may have, I think I can speak for most of the members of the site when I say that I don't appreciate your insulting ramblings directed at the members of this forum. You complain about immaturity and BLog attitudes but really, you're the only one I see around here behaving like a little child. This isn't the first time I've noted you behaving this way. We're mature enough to point out where we're going off topic and being a little silly and we don't need someone to tell us if we're 'ego-boosting'.

Call our 'inside jokes' what you will, but they give character to the forum, in your perfect world it seems that everyone is a bland, generic person that endlessly drivels stats and numbers. We're all capable of talking stats and balance but frankly there's not much point when we've already sent a report and are awaiting the result.

Don't get all high and mighty here, it doesn't go down well with people.
