But why No thors? Boo-hoo, FR is defenceless, grow some balls! Thats one of the risks with playing the MFR Position! Why make it even more boring for a MFR? Just sitting there watching for a dot then calling a newb. With thors, you can aim them off the radar, with more skill, lets Spec help them too, means the MFR will have to pay more attention. Stop been little pussies about it. I thought this was EXTREME-GAMES not "Oh I'm a bit scared of thors so lets ditch them so its easier-GAMES" Man the fuck up.
Yah... they are scared.
So the zone has been horribly mismanaged over the years... as a consequence of this the zone has lost it's "extremeNESS" theme making it unappealing and the extreme type players have essentially mostly left. The only people that remain are the "non-extreme" type crowd who use to be a minority but now have become the majority by default. Hence why Lady V and other smods suck up to them... give them everything they ask for even if it is detrimental to the actual theme of the zone "Extreme Games". It's akin to children demanding to eat candy and cake everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and fulfilling their every wish... even though they dunno wtf they are talking about and it's actually bad for them.
So that's what it is. Nothing gonna change till you have more "Extreme" themed sysops/smods in place. Till then expect more of this status quo scared type players who just want to circle jerk each other and scratch each other's vagina in fixed, rigid, baseduel type format that is based on "Skill" hah. Even though 99% of these players would complete scrubs in 2000 era terms. Playing tournaments against the same 20-30 people for years calling themselves "the best" hah it's really a big joke. The whole thing is really the opposite of Extreme Games theme but yea.
I think Lady V summarized it best as to what the problem with E.G is "because that is what 'the players' want" haha.
Troll so hard Fc wanna fiiiiiiiine me... that shit cra
