That said it's unproductive and useless to go on the Arm discord and start yelling at staff or to go on the GDB and start yelling at staff. Staff control those places and what can or can't be said there. Those places are not town hall meetings. The fact that doing that gets you banned from those places should be enough of a sign that you have no power as a player to change the game's culture, only to accept it or abandon it.
While I agree with mehtastic's sentiment, it is mostly because I believe Armageddon is irreparably fucked, staff culture wise, and everyone should walk away.
I could actually care less, and wouldn't waste even a microsecond's sympathy for staffers being yelled at on the GDB or in their silly ass discord.
These are staff, btw, who thought it was funny to edit my very respectful posts disagreeing with them, just to mock me, as a 'hurr durr' moment, deleting over a page's worth of careful reasoning over an entirely neutral game design subject. And then when I objected to that and made a complaint for abuse of staff moderation powers, Nessalin told me to go fuck myself. Fair enough.
But it also means I don't care if people mock them on Discord. But the best course of action is to stop playing, and stop giving them the power. I have zero sympathy for them, though, and my only concern in this, is not for staff, but the people wasting their time in trying to effect real change.
Armageddon staff, has through their actions, earned all of the negative feedback they have ever received, here, there or everywhere.
