Well guys, I know I haven't been quite as active as when I first joined, but that is all due to my recent awful ping and lag-spikes. I suspect this would be because of my location and atrocious Winter weather, however I'm not going to get into that any more and move onto the subject at hand^^
As you all know, the new Star-Wars movie has been released in most of North America, EU, Asia (Lol even places in West Asia like Afghanistan UAE etc.), yet in small towns/out of the way Cities such as mine in B.C Canada it will not be out quite some time (4 weeks where I live).
Now this isn't too much of a problem; I generally consider myself a pretty patient guy.. But the Spoilerinos... OMFG THE SPOILERINOS ARE REAL JHSDFHSDOFJHSDOJFHSDOFJ /RAGE . All through yesterday I was free from RL and spent a fair bit of time playing MB2, but the entire time I found myself asking people to be careful what they say/completely rqing servers due to people who enjoy ruining the movie for others. Now yesterday not too much detail was mentioned to me but all of the little things add up and kind of dampen the experience
Now while the AOD server admins have been pretty good at warning/removing said players, they are not robots and can't moderate the servers at all times, nor can they do anything on other servers. In other words, if somebody wants to be 'that guy' and spoil the movie all they have to do is jump into a game and spam movie details.
This morning I jumped into an Open Server and after getting settled in people started talking about TFA with seemingly harmless intent. However after no time at all movie details were being thrown out left and right and parts of the movie have more-or-less been soiled for me. Not all of it has been ruined, but it really has opened me up to how hard it will be for me to go on 4 weeks without every detail of the movie being poked and prodded, little-by-little. This morning I got a rather important detail mentioned which I will not spoil to others, but it is what provoked the starting of this Thread.
Now I won't get into too much more detail here as I've dragged this on already, but I suppose the thesis of this thread is me trying to explain why I will not be playing as much for the next month (well just under a month). I am NOT requesting a leave of absence, and will be involved enough to be considered an active member, however I'm just explaining myself so nobody gets the wrong idea of my whereabouts. When I play I will stick only to AOD servers, and only while they are being moderated by Admins.
I pray you all understand how real da struggle is, and I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
PS: Pls don't laugh, b0ss. I take my spoilerinos very srsly b0ss.
