This would have been a lot better review if you spent more time talking about what you liked about the game rather than just rebutting complaints, because simple rebuttals and insinuations that you need to be a "real man" to understand this game aren't going to convince anyone who doesn't already agree with you. I mean, you could be completely right. All these points could be true. But this isn't really a smart approach to take if your real goal is to convince people to play EVE (but that isn't your real goal. Your goal is to insinuate DoI is a dumbass that didn't play the game correctly, though I don't really care whether that's true or not if you can't make your own case for this game and better explain it).

So this could be a great rebuttal for all I know (and could have been posted in a feedback topic such as this). But it's a fairly lousy review, because its emphasis is completely misplaced on attacking an existing review, not reviewing the actual game.

Not really. I'm still just as likely, if not more likely, to believe DoI's review because this is a simple attack piece. It casts some doubt over DoI's opinion, but not too well because the "test your manhood" approach comes across as the exact opposite, childish, and the review doesn't do much else (like describe the good parts of the game that come after you've been so patient with the system).

Assumptions are dangerous. I would have expected better.

If I wanted to make an advertising piece, I would make an advertising piece. You have failed to realize that simple fact. I wrote for a purpose, that purpose was met.


No.

Well, congrats, but if people can't even tell what your purpose is I think it's also assumptive to say you accomplished it.

Sorry this dialog hasn't been meeting your expectation. It's mutual.

It's ok, I too can come off as a pretentious ass.

Have a nice day.

Thanks.

I uploaded your 100x100 blog avatar so you can also use it on the message boards. Just click on that goofy default cheetos icon next to your posts, select 100x100, and find it. It should be on page 8/70.

Have a nice day too.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce BLAH or Blah, the internet's most lovable ass. <3

I take full responsibility for bringing him here; send all complaints my way. Don't worry, he kinda grows on you.

Welcome to HG, internet's most lovable ass. I don't get what you're trying to accomplish with this review. It doesn't really say anything except "This game is hard and if you don't like it go back to WoWLolololol," an argument that doesn't really affect anyone here since barely anyone on HG plays WoW (as far as I'm aware anyway). So, since I'm apparently clueless on the subject, what were you trying to accomplish?

I'm not certain if this was his intent, but Blah has highlighted an interesting inconsistency in HG's userbase; the people here seem far more eager to argue over a bad review than comment on a good one.

That's not a flaw: that's human nature.

Besides, you get all your EmP-feedback offsite via a never-ending slew of AIMs.


For us. For them. For you.

What Will says is kind of true... it's kind of depressing, but oh well. That's what AIM's for, I guess.

Actually, getting feedback at all on this site is kind of a miracle in and of itself. >_> Usually that's done through contests, RotWs and the like.

That's why I actually think it was a good thing that people could leave feedback for their own reviews - that way they could ask for feedback on their reviews. But, then again, people would often just be annoying with that...

My intent won't be divulged. It's how I work, really.
