Forums: Index > Watercooler > Why People Have To be jerks About Modding

Hey everybody,This is xMPx Nova signing back on to the wiki. As some ofyou may have noticed, I haven't been involved with the wiki in a while. I use to be a constant everyday contributor on here. So it is good to be back. When I signed back on and went to the forums expecting to reengage in the exciting conversations that partake on here, the first thing I noticed was that the mod non-mod battle was still being fought. I thought to myself,"Wow, I have been gone for this long and this battle is still going on!" I just started playing B'lands again. And everywhere I look there are the stock weapons and the rose omega. I am not dissing anyone that uses them, because I use them myself. But the growth of these items is rediculous. I do not believe noobs should have them. I believe, if you beat the game fairly, then you can take part in them. I am not saying that you shouldn't use modded items, I am just saying that those 2 items are no fun to use when you are trying to beat the game. I am all for modding! And you non-modders, where in the heck do you get off? Quit being jerks to the people that do use mods. It is getting pretty old. Just freaking get along. I am not trying to start a fight, I am simply just expressing my oppinion. XMPx Nova 18:56, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Yet you just started another thread about it. Other people have expressed your exact sentiments as well as a plethera of similar and opposing ones. C'mon guy, don't feed the trolls :p Phoenixlol 19:02, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

It is a pretty awkward issue to address. I've been working on putting together a respectable page about modding in the hopes that cooler heads prevail. I haven't had a chance to put much time into it yet, but I've been experimenting so I know what I'm talking about more.. WhackyGordon 19:09, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

That's cool, I don't think anyone has a problem with you expressing your opinion. But you'll have to do thers the same courtesy, instead of asking "Where do you get off?" I don't have a problem with modding if you're playing offline, or with a group in a private match. It's when others with mods join a match, and expose others to possible game-wrecking glitches and save corruptions. So when it affects other people, they most certainly have the right to bitch about it. Other than that, the only issue I have is when people try to pass mods off as legit weapons. I haven't seen an argument in this forum in a long time about mods that wasn't just about people lyinig about their weaps rather than just the principle itself.GT: ConceitedJarrad XBOX360 19:16, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, c'mon CJ, I'm pretty sure we've both been in a couple recently. I think the main issue here is the energy it brings to the conversations. People rage so much here, it's a little disturbing. It'd be awesome if people would relax, post their rants in blogs, and not chop up every thread with scorpio code. WhackyGordon 19:23, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

Where? I haven't been involved in any conversation about modding unless it was when someone was trying to pass their x12 scopeless sniper rifle off as legit, or something like that. And really, those ar ethe only types of arguments I see about it at all anymore.GT: ConceitedJarrad XBOX360 19:32, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

- Right, my bad - I was remembering your contributions on the "Wirkbench" thread lol WhackyGordon 20:02, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

And if I'm not mistaken, this isn't even nearly the first thread with the subject of "Quit arguing about modding"; but I guess that's to be expected on a Wiki where people come and go without reading what they missed (not saying that's a bad thing, who wants to go through months of threads?). We're with you Nova, but haters gon' hate. It is what it is. Phoenixlol 19:30, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
