Perhaps you should be more placid?
Interesting take that you have today. I asked you a fairly straightforward question earlier which was met with a condescending post of which the majority didn't apply to me and you've since called me "pricky-nikky" and a "wee testicle".
here trying to kick it off, apparently
And again trying to play victim.
You were throwing another users quotes back at them for them merely saying they had found some peace with the game. Militant, pedantic weirdness. What did you think you were trying to prove there? What was the purpose of that exactly? Were you trying to "out" him or something?
You and others aren't aware but you are out of touch and don't get listened to for a reason. You hold no higher knowledge and can't even claim to have higher standards. You and others like you are narrow-minded and have completely lost the plot now.
Do you want to know why forums are dying? It ain't no reflection of the game but you and others are too blinkered in your belief that is the case to realuse that it just isn't how these games are discussed any longer. People operate in smaller communities now. Communities within communities. They pursue their own endeavours like PEN, FUMA and alike. There are PES/FIFA communities that operate within actual football forums and other groups on other social media platforms. There are micro-communities that utilise main hubs for some assets and maybe news. You don't even see them.
People are bored of the analytical echo chamber and its cult of personality. They are done with being spoken down to by rabid, militant assholes on the search for their own wee shill. These games have been knocking about for decades and folk know what they want, know what they like/dislike and also know what they are willing to put up with. You and others like you can't appreciate that fact; utterly blind to it so you use these wee safe spaces to bitch and whine about them while dreaming up nonsensical conpspiracies about individual employees of a company or the entire corporation itself. Maybe you will go down new exciting rabbit-holes like what is going on with a gif for an 8 month old game on the games twitter feed, or how an employee tweeted something in the midst of one of the craziest, fun and exciting midweeks of top-flight European football in years and you think he was having a go at your wee group! Lol, that was a damn high jumping of the shark by some very joyless people. And you or others dare wonder why things are a bit quiet on forums, or why you continue to find yourselves getting ignored? You's serious? Jesus christ
It's quiet because if they do look in they see nik quoting some dudes posts back at him because his position on a videogame changed a wee bit, or read philla go off on one about how mature and real a player he is, or how Mutu has found a hidden critique of him in a tweet from a dude who doesn't even know Mutu feckin' exists. Absolute nut-bars.
You's are finished as a movement on this game and the other one. Completely devoured by football culture and you didn't see it coming because you foolishly thought there was only one strict template that needs adhering to when it comes to a football game: yours. Problem is it is dull, boring and runs cometely counter as to why folk love the sport.
You don't partake in wider football culture. You're not living it. The nearest you and your lot get to football culture is talk of Sky Sports scoreboards and sliders in a football game, after an afternoon on an armchair watching some games. You take it all too seriously which again runs counter to the spirit of why the masses love the sport at its core: because it is accessible and is relatable. The reason folks play the sport is to enjoy. It wouldn't be the most popular sport on the planet if it wasn't accessible and fun. It wouldn't be the sport it is if it weren't for the diversity. People play the sport because they enjoy trying stuff as well as enjoying competing. They attend matches, I attend matches, because although I seriously want my team to get a result I enjoy the social aspect. I enjoy so much around the event. Folk travel the world to take in as much in tge way of differing football cultures as they can before shuffling off.
Why do some folk support or even just prefer watching Shrewsbury while many more would rather watch Barca? Who are the bigger fans of the sport between those two groups? What group is the more knowledgable about the sport? You can't answer that as much as you can't answer why some folk prefer FIFA over PES or vice versa. You can't answer that much like you couldn't explain why maybe some dude might still think SWOS or Kick-Off were the best football games ever made, even to this day, but is a tactical genius on the real sport. You wouldn't be able to process that because you and your likes are so painfully narrow-minded. Thing is I fully expect one of you deeply analytical, highly intelligent clowns to try and offer an answer to those questions and would succeed in only highlighting further how dettached from reality and wider football culture you really are.
Less and less care for your or others idea of "simulation" because it is completely joyless as well as being dettached from the reality. You think you are being on point but you ain't. You miss most of it all out getting bogged down in positioning, broadcast assets, sliders and bespoke buttons for "driven" passes. You see more than three short one-touch passes and you start freaking out and start talking about deleting hard-drives. You don't know the sport because it seems like you just haven't kicked a ball about enough. You think the sport can only be played by super-athletes. You try to take tv style analysis and apply it to a videogame. Again, you are not operating in a reality that appreciates the sport in full, just the televised, packaged version.
You (and others) just don't get football. Period. It certainly comes across like that. That is why you get ignored and that is why you get more intolerant and militant as a result. You aren't embracing of football culture. You are anti-football.
