So what’s the consensus? Is it any good is it playable what? I think I’m going to start hosting games there for a couple hours a night.

IDK if it was a response to the current discussion, or perhaps tora got on his FB messenger, or just coincidence, but ultimately idc because I am just happy to see people playing wc2 anywhere ... so YAY 

Lol, I’m pretty busy right now with my current project but I’ll have some free time come May. Then I’ll do some fresh rounds of tournament hosting.

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it  How about you?

I’ve slowly cut down on how many hours I play it. For me it’s like watching television or a movie.

Hey man if War2 is interfering in your life and getting in the way of progress you probably should stop wasting your time playing it. Because that’s what war2 is, a waste of time.

And sad as it may be, I do care about wc2 because it has been a part of my life for a long time and I enjoy it. I'm pretty sure you are the same in this regard only you choose to deny that obvious fact, which is actually a bit sadder IMO. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial

Well I’m sorry your life sucks. My life sucked once too. One thing I found that helped make it better was cutting out things that didn’t matter, and not worry about things that aren’t important.

she is predominately disliked by the majority of the player base.

The majority of the player base either doesn't like her or doesn't know who she is.

No I'm saying she isn't that well known or liked by the majority of the community.


Back-pedaling much?


Tbh I actually really don't care that much about Babyshark or this game in general. It's not that important to me, and I really hope it's not that important to you either.


That's a lot of posts about a person and a game you don't care about. Sorry to disappoint but I care about both of them.


I'm saying that I have over 20 players on FB and social media who are inactive and active whom I could message at any time to come play on the server.( I did ask for your social media you told me you didn't have any) I also know the entire player base and I'm telling you Babyshark isn't that important.

I have a FB account that I literally haven't logged into for years and don't use. I use discord mainly (Lambchops#3843) and I also have whatsapp for people who don't use discord (just my brother really these days) and I also use the pm on this forum a bit. You are welcome to contact me any time.

As to whether or not any single player is "that important", there are 2 ways to look at it.

1) Subjectively depending on your opinion of the individual and their contribution.
2) Mathematically. If there were 400 players then each of then would be 0.25% important.

I'd guess that by now every time we lose a player we are losing about 3% (and rising) of the game.

I think it's "that important".






I care about my career, my education, my family, and my friends. I don't care about a online gaming server and the nameless faces that populate it.
If you really equate this gaming server and the individuals that populate it in the same retrospect you do your every day life then that tells me one of two things.
A) Your life sucks.
B) Your suffering from video game addiction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_game_addiction

If it's the former my apologies. If it's the latter I suggest you seek therapy.

So you think if someone doesn't know her they hate her? Seriously wth?

No I'm saying she isn't that well known or liked by the majority of the community.
FB is the definition of an echo chamber. I'm sure in 10 minutes I could come up with 20 fb friends who will say that all muslims are evil.

I'm saying that I have over 20 players on FB and social media who are inactive and active whom I could message at any time to come play on the server.( I did ask for your social media you told me you didn't have any) I also know the entire player base and I'm telling you Babyshark isn't that important.


You don't want to change to accommodate me?

End of the day there will be one player left.

If I thought the server would benefit from moderation I would be all for it. I don't believe it would.

 
Says the guy who has taken so much offence at BS's posts.

Losing BS was a HUGE loss.... and she really loves wc2 as much as any of us, so it took a big effort by a number of people to do it. That was just dumb dumb ego-drive dumbness.

End of the day Babyshark left war2ru because she disagreed with the moderation practices or lack of thereof.
 We don't moderate trash talking on war2ru.

This is server was built by veterans for vets. I don't believe moderating the words of the players base is what the majority wants
Fail. That is one of the main points I am trying to make here. No she isn't. At all. There aren't even as many BS haters here as there are people willing to go to another server to play with her.

I have over 20 players on Facebook and other social media and I know pretty much every player on the server. So we can agree to disagree there. The majority of the player base either doesn't like her or doesn't know who she is.

End of the day lamb the player base isn't going to change in order to accommodate one player. If Babyshark wants to play on war2ru again she is going to have to change her approach to the game or simply continue to play on war2usa.

This is a game it's not real life. Anyone that genuinely gets upset by words sent to them on a gaming server should really rethink the way they are approaching the internet world.

Ok this thread has gotten way outta hand. Classic war2 flame war about a game on the internet.

Maybe tupac did it maybe he didn’t. War2 is a fun game but it is a game.
I do think a large percentage of our playerbase is suffering from video game addiction.

Sounds like your stalking dropped off a bit after the first week

I’ve been keeping tabs of that server since it came out. I don’t care where people play war2 so long as they play it.
I do disagee with Xurnt that War2ru has gotten slower lately. I do log on every day and I never have a problem getting a game. If I were to get back into hosting tournaments again I’m certain War2ru would see the player base in the 80s and 90s on the weekends.

I can think of 3 people not mentioned here, all better players than me, plus some other randoms..

Fallen_solider, ryan85, deathknight. Who is counting? Not the point.
Point is players that do go to the USA server only play at the bequest of one player. They don’t go there on their own and host games. The only players that play exclusively on war2usa are probably Babyshark, TGS, and DK.

Please remind all what good atuff she actually did.

Well like I said..

She makes games, enjoys playing them, includes everyone, makes fair teams and has a laugh.
...organizing tourneys and competitions, generally being an interesting personality ... even some fairly inspired good-humored trolling occasionally.

BS hosted 1 tournament at 10pm on a Monday not the greatest time to get a big turnout.(thou you in ausie land so maybe you liked the time)

As far as her being a likable player, who hosts good games and has fun with people. She has her fans for sure, with Lambchops being one of the biggest it seems. But she is predominately disliked by the majority of the player base.

I met BS from her hosting games and letting me play, despite the fact that I sucked at ef games and was really only there because they were fun.

I'm sure she banned you more than once. I know the two of you do not get along, which I understand. BS's rather extreme religious background is something that I like her despite of, not because of. Generally it only manifested as cut&paste type forum posts. It isn't something that she chats about while gaming. For me, that stuff is easy to ignore because religion is not something that I'm interested in, but I can understand how it could be very annoying for others.

As far as me disliking Babyshark goes, she is easily the most toxic forum poster on here aside maybe Equinox.
On the server side she is extremely cliquey. And she does regularly rage at people if they say something she doesn’t like. I have had her whisper me endlessly while I was on a smurf after we 1sed a few times. While I don’t personally care if a player does this to me I do find it very hypocritical when I think of who is doing it.

Sure, but the thing that caused her to leave is the single most damaging factor to the playerbase.

She left because mousetopher muted her on discord for getting into a flame war with van. I really hope you don’t believe that is the single most damaging factor to the playerbase.

For all the good stuff she did for this community, grow up and be embarrased.

Please remind all what good atuff she actually did.

She was always very choosy about who played with her and always banned anyone who she perceived to have a “bad attitude.” Most of her games had a password and were very inclusive. Which is fine. Most of our playerbase operates in the same manner. 

Probably because they don't play wc2 very often any more, but they make the effort when BabyShark organizes it .... which is exactly what this server lost when they decided to ostracise her.

Nobody is saying Babyshark can’t still play on RU. This is a game it’s not real life.
RU existed before Babyshark and it will exist after her.
