I appreciate the humor of that diagram. Arm may also be a thing in decline. However,, there is a logical fallacy in what you are saying.
A good example is in talking about corporate business, vs startups. One is a somewhat sociopathic profit engine. The other is an investors gamble. These two things might look like and occasionally one might evolve into the other, but they are not the same.
At the very least, a startuip CEO is the poker player a wealthy patron or five has chosen to back. They arent necessarily proven leaders or inventors or shrewd businessmen. If they have sat down once at the table and made an investment worth 8x or more, they can probably continue playing the game as long as they like.
A corporate CEO has three to eight quarters in which to show increasing profits. Its that simple.
By extension, you cannot compare games which are businesses, vs art projects, vs cults.
I agree with pinkerdlu 's guess that ccp is salty about something pinkerdlu's character did to theirs. Show us on the doll where pinkerdlu's character stabbed yours.
I know. I wasted my time acknowledging his original post and he even ignored that to try and shit on me some more. Oh well.
edited to add: ccp, I guess I'm just a salty tryhard in your eyes. But shit, you come across as really dense, man. I definitely do have mixed feelings about the game. And I never said that I hated it. I don't think anyone on this forum hates the damn game, man. Come on, use your head. We all love the game but are extremely disappointed and regretful of where the years have taken the game and how it continues to falter and stagnant. I've just crossed the threshold where it's not worth my time and I can't really squeeze any more enjoyment out of it with my past experiences and knowledge, like many others.
This whole attitude of "man ur just salty, nobody else is publicly quitting! suck it up!" is just really bizarre. mehtastic is right, it fits the mold of the "MUH CRACKMEDDON!!1" meme perfectly.

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

nile: Also, been playing Arm again on an alt account (omfg their ban was easy to get around...and tbh i have more fun in apoc)

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
