@ShowProdigy_MLBTS said in My convictions..don't read if paragraphs are problematic:
So, one of the main reasons I compose post after post about the AI (code) regulated disbursement of success/failure in this game is because I'm trying to neutralize potential harm done by those that a.) either support SDS in whatever role (marketers/gatekeepers) b.) just troll and wanna screw with people (not me, I am a self-proclaimed advocate of all things manipulative in gaming) c.)are just BSers, and proclaim by holding their controller pci an inch higher in the zone and taking the first pitch is why they are 113-3 (which they aren't)
You forget, ya'll there are a lot of young gullible folks out here. Your words can do damage you don't even know about to the naive.
I used to let the discussions and suggestions from everyone that the secret to success in this game is super high internet speed and plugging in your ethernet just slide by. A small bit of potential truth to such things but minuscule and irrelevant for the most part. Now that we have fiber everywhere I don't really see those suggestions much.
This is what started me up. A few years back there was a moderator telling some 12 year old kid that he would do a lot better hitting the ball if he purchased a much higher-end (hz refresh rate was the secret he said)TV or just use a top-end monitor. This kid came back a few days saying he talked his folks into getting a new TV and it made no difference.
Now, I don't know what kinda parents indulge their kids to that extent. But that very BAD advice from some moderator that shoulda known better had EFFECT on that family.
I can't think of anything else to say right now. I'm done for the day. See ya'al.
A great preacher once asked this simple question WHY?
