    Do the same thing you did on discord and get rid of the PvP section. Staff recently had to delete every post in that sub forum because it was getting super embarrassing and now just weeks later look at the state of that sub: Nothing but shitposts.

    I say take away the place for those kids to spew their shit and they will eventually stop doing it. Not like it isn't the same 5 people every single time anyways.

    Honestly, this is just the first page:

    80% of the posts are from the $ower alliance. And the situation is even worse if you go back a few pages. I realize they are butthurt, but we shouldn't lose the pvp forum because of 3-4 seriously affected players

    Well he is your number 1 supporter and it's only 1 post anyways. Your discipline master and affected Tyler make up for the vast majority of threads.

    Besides, $ is so desperate I wouldn't be surprised one bit if you guys actually recruited him in the upcoming months.

    Funny that this is coming from you lollo, you are one of those 5-6 people who have made it their duty to derail every single post on the forum....

    And as if to prove my point, here he goes again.

    Ban lollo and the other 5-6 people who do nothing but derail threads here

    Yeah right....

    Anyways, if they remove the pvp section all that shit would move to the other forums and it'll be way worse than it is now.

    Look what happened when they removed Rants and Flames section. The pvp forum was decent back then because all the BS was in R&F (well, most of it anyways), now the pvp forum is a shit show.

    I hope this was constructive enough for you to not wish cancer on me ever again. Bye

    They could tell people to keep it to PMs, just like on discord.
    The question is, does the shard really need a publicly visible place for people to throw insults at each other? I think not and ever since they have gotten rid of that completely in discord and started enforcing it the overall climate there has gotten a lot more enjoyable.

    Stop trying to derail the OP's thread. This has nothing to do with the OP's post.

    It has been suggested many times to have a R&F section where you can only access if you account is more than X months old or has more than X number of posts. It would also have a big WARNING where you have to click "i accept" before you enter.

    This way people who enjoy the shit talk can have fun there, while the soft kids like yourself and @Silly Santa can pretend they are playing hello kitty rainbow island without having their feelings hurt.

    I was playing this game in 1999 and shit talk has always been a big part of it, especially when it comes to pvp.

    I gotta agree with Lollo here.

    I think bringing back the R&F section (which I never read or posted in, as I wasn't on the forums at the time) would solve a lot of the problems people are having with the PvP section. Hell even general chat on Discord is now pushing the limits as there isn't anywhere to call someone out for their actions.

    The fact that Silly Santa, LSDjay and a few other softer players are upset about the PvP section being what it is partly their fault posting in there with no PvP references at all, just ant-EQMS rhetoric. The crying will always happen, there will always be cyber babies, but at least in the R&F section, you can expect over-the-top insults, and over-the-top reactions; the PvP section shouldn't be used the way it is.

    Shane already wiped pvp forums once. Perhaps 2nd pvp forum wipe? There's a chance we'll get better threads, right?

    When did this occur? I don't think that's how the story went.

    Shit-talking is not "part of pvp." It is a mindset that a lot of players picked up when they were 12-13 on stepdad's keyboard and they never learned to play nice.

    I'm not talking about amongst friends, I make sure to shit talk my friends everyday.

    Or you could just, ya know, not read the PvP section if you don't like the content. It's like saying, "I hate this book that's out right now so I will read it and complain about it."

    I would completely support getting rid of the pvp section. It's boring. It's the same old horse shit day after day. I rarely post there anymore.

    Anyone who has half a personality is banned from either discord or the forums and just doesn't feel like dealing with it anymore. As someone who has been banned from both, I can't blame them. The fun has been taken out of it.
