And, I finally left the OPvP channel. I'm sure nobody will miss me, but the hypocrisy was driving me crazy. It wasn't entertaining to read any longer - certainly not enough to make up for all the drivel...

PlayerA: All folks do is whine about X.
PlayerB: Yeah, all they do is whine about X.
PlayerC: Yeah, all the whining about X is annoying.
PlayerA: <whines about Y>
PlayerB: <whines about Y too>
PlayerC: <whines about Y as well>

/facepalm

Really? I mean...seriously? Perhaps 15s passed between the whining about folks whining about X before they moved on to whine about Y.

Do folks even realize that they're doing it?

I wouldn't have called their discussion about Y whining, if not for them complaining about what they considered whining about X. It's tedious.

Will somebody call this whining? Of course they will! They see any complaints outside of their own complaints as whining... welcome to a world of overinflated fragile egos.

Ah......where am I going to get someone to test stuff now?

I haven't seen much of that, to be frank. Could be timezones, though - sometimes I feel like I'm living in a completely different world where community is concerned.

I had to lol, you know...because yeah, this isn't my normal time playing. Looking back through the last couple of pages - I basically had the same issue a few months back. One of those WTF is going on in OPvP moments.

Maybe I just need to stay out of OPvP at this time of day if I'm on...meh.

I'll be sure to do so and have my fleet do so as well. We are a new fleet but very interested in PvP.

As One of the people promoting the channel, I'd hate to see people leave or be discouraged from using it, yes at times things do go a little off topic and its been a little quiet of late.

But this is where I found my home in PvP, and I certainly won't be leaving any time soon, its entertaining, educational in PvP and you can set up some pretty interesting matches in there (1v1's, Fleet vs Fleet, Large scale 10 v 10's).

It's up to us as the community to support the channel and PvP, control the topics in there and stop the whiners and direct them to these forums where the whining belongs - yeah sure share links to the whining, but keep it here.

And of course, people have profanity filters for a reason, people have the right to express themselves, If your of a nervous disposition I suggest keeping them turned on.

My indications and analysis tell me that at peek hours the channel has about 333 people in.
Outside this the number drops to <250

Before LoR the numbers where an average of 375/500
