If PB2.5 Came Out Today, How Excited Would You Be?

Postby mingo1 » 7 April 2019, 23:41

If the long awaited sequel came out today, what type of feeling would you get? A buzz of excitement or a "whatever" type feeling?

I have no clue when PB2.5 will come out; I am just curious.

Let me know!

Well uh, Eric said he almost completed PB2.5 a while ago and now he is working on PB3 (probably) so this could be real anytime.

If it came out right now, I would seek every single thing added to the game and make a list named "the new stuff" and then share it.

Edit: forget the first paragraph, it's probably inaccurate

i would be happy about it, spread the word and check out the level editor. Probably port some pb2 maps and improve them if possible.

I.E: resi-nazizombies could get proper multiplayer coop, and I'm assuming the zombies wouldn't be stupid.

I will most likely feel upset. I'm afraid new game won't bring any changes to this community.

1) People will just keep playing and making sh*tty maps like Stryde-sniper or Paul308-base or Mrnat444-coi, but in 2.5D.
2) There won't be any changes to the current staff team, which is, as you already know, terrible at doing their job.
3) Code of Conduct will remain the same. I want it to be as strict as it was in the beggining of PB2 existence, when you couldn't swear, doublepost/freepost, etc. But it will never be like that again.
4) Toxic PROs will keep singing about how cool they are because they are in top 20.
5) BCLD top will be filled with people who make terrible, but popular among retards maps (just like now).
6) Official PB3 chat would most likely be dead because people got too used to 3rd party software like Discord.
7) Eric would probably not pay enough attention to advertising of his game, so the community will remain relatively small, or become big but will die very quickly.
8) People will keep creating meaningless clans that have no mission, no strict rules/requirements, no requirements for views of members (what they believe in, who they are). We will most likely never have clans like GSA or EKAT again. Instead of them, we will just have numerous copies of Dark clan.
9) Guest feature would probably not be removed and there won't be a need to use your actual e-mail to register an account, so people would just keep creating alts or play as guests to remain anonymous. Which is bad too.
10) People will keep creating stupid topics like this one instead of discussing something actually worth a discussion. No, we will just get lots of new forum games and topics like this:

I don't know, a lot of people are saying that they are losing excitement because Eric is "taking too long"

I will most likely feel upset. I'm afraid new game won't bring any changes to this community.

1) People will just keep playing and making sh*tty maps like jason eden-mb1, jason eden-rvb1 and jason eden-rvb2.
2) There won't be any changes to the current staff team, which as much as they do their job they are not the best and could have improvements mostly regarding quantity of members and activity levels.
3) Code of Conduct will remain the same. I want it to be more libertarian and not to have useless rules that are not effective and the opposite of how it was in the beggining of PB2 existence, when you couldn't swear, doublepost/freepost, etc. But it will never be like that again.
4) Toxic narcissists will keep singing about how they are more experienced in level editor than me, Artichokecat, Ditzy and Kiriakos all together.
5) BCLD top will be filled with people who make maps that have been chosen by the invisible hand of the PB2 market, thus being popular according to the vast majority of the PB2 players that are younger and more naive than me.
6) Official PB3 chat would most likely be dead because people got too used to 3rd party software like Discord because it is clearly better and that is why people use it.
7) Eric would probably not pay enough attention to advertising of his game, so the community will remain relatively small, or become big but will die very quickly, which is not a bad thing but Eric still could publish PB2 on Steam and also as a browser game similar to how ROTMG did it.
8 ) People will keep creating clans with subjective meaning, no strict rules/requirements or the opposite if they wish, no requirements for views of members which is also subjective. We will most likely never have clans like GSA or EKAT again because of how many players there were even though one can just create a similar clan these days and reach such levels but it takes too much to realize they were poorly structured mostly old GSA and that they are not that different from DARK CLAN other than having a minimal structure. Instead of them, we will just have numerous copies of DARK CLAN because it is the oldest, strongest and biggest clan on PB2 currently.
9) Guest feature would probably not be removed and there won't be a need to use your actual e-mail to register an account, so people would just keep creating alts or play as guests to remain anonymous. Which is great because people can test the game before playing, they don't need to have an email and can just use it to lets say play 1v1s or just have casual approved map fun and it is also great because Eric tracks guest IPs these days!
10) People will keep creating stupid topics like this one instead of discussing something actually worth a discussion. No, we will just get lots of new forum games and topics like this:

Not excited at all

1.) Development's been going on for a long time to a point that maintaining interest isn't possible anymore
2.) Forbidden opinion: staff still needs to be improved, especially in the activity department
3.) 99% of this community isn't worth engaging with, with a few exceptions. It'll also be this same community that'll carry itself over to PB2.5 and serve as a bulk of PB2.5's community upon launch

As you can see, I have a very optimistic and positive view

At least you have understandable points compared to someone else over here.

Yeah, dealing with roughly 80% of pb2 support requests is really starting to wear me down.

Do you guys keep track of the activity of each staff member? I would assume that if someone isn't dedicate enough for one reason or another, something would be done.

Yeah, if you're inactive enough you get promoted to admin so you can boss people around.

This is true, sad, and funny all at the same time. How can you do this, Zap?

Yeah, avoiding an entire forum must also be exhaustive too unless there's a post by me in which case you suddenly get enough energy to come here to post a witty remark in response

Perhaps you may not know this, but I don't owe it to you or anyone else to come on here and make 'nothing' posts. I keep the peace, that's more than enough. Unfortunately theres a difference between how you think staff should run and how Eric thinks his site should be managed.
The forum is no longer the PB2 community hub and anyone with common sense knows that. Sorry you must have forgotten.

Who said you or anyone else owes me? If you can't even manage to maintain consistent activity or you simply can't remain active, you shouldn't be a staff member until you can output the activity needed. Of course, common sense is unironically a rarity here so basic concepts like that fly over your head because you're too busy putting words that I never said in my mouth, regardless of how straightforward I put things.

And if the forum isn't the community hub anymore, there's no reason to keep it running. Unfortunately, it still is here and thus it still is relevant and connected to the community. You have to maintain a presence here as a result. Don't like it, don't accept the responsibility. You signed up for the position; if you can't do the simplest thing the position asks of you, then you definitely are not worthy of it. Sorry Discord is not all this game and community is. That's the reality here whether you like it or not, and it certainly won't change by your words no matter how much you try.

'Who said you owe me?' Continues on to detail exactly why I owe the community to comeon here an 'make a presence' something that was never mentioned to me after being staff for two years.
Allow me to repeat.
The way YOU think staff should be run, is not the way Eric wants it to be run. Case closed.
The sad part of this is I post on the forum a decent amount. I just don't try and write a novel for the readers like you do.
But you do have a point, if you can't handle outputting basic staff activities, you should resign.
