It's silly to think units are going to kill the player skill cap, when it's more likely that diving / intentionally trolling players will do more damage.
You make someone feel completely outclassed, and they'll think the game is rigged and quit or just not care anymore. For a new game, people seldom stick around and think 'I'll improve', or actively put effort if they know people are much better. Look at Ao's clan, a good majority of the people there resigned themselves to the idea that they'll never be as good as Shift, Dusks, or any other big household name on TW. We sometimes have that problem in KR when someone gets thrashed by Alphaedge. 'I'll never beat him so why try to improve?'
Likewise if you introduce a easy route like diving, people feel less inclined to play seriously and just dive their way to suits. A lot of KR players began to look down on TW, after diving became prominent, and quite frankly the skill rate dove down sharply.
Honestly, this is why all the trolling and trash talking on the other forum is annoying. People bragging about being #1 should just pipe down. You seldom see players worth their while actually being braggarts, and all you're doing is alienating the new player base and making them less likely to actually listen to you, let alone take you seriously when the time comes to help them improve.
In many ways, I see this situation starting to form like KR did with TW. People with seemingly harmless intentions poisoning the water for those that actually want to set up camp later. It's only a matter of time until players who feel threatened community wise and play mainly on KR/TW/HK, begin to troll NA and further create damage.
Sorry for the huge rant, but seeing the situation as it's been unfolding over yesterday and today has just made me rather uncertain towards how everything will occur.
Everything in this post is bullshit. This is just you being overly emotional over your failed Taiwan sdgo channel. Korean players have made a plethora of fora and a few wiki's. Mostly for the newer tw players. This was back when the only other decent source for information was the Japanese wiki, which wasn't that good at the time. (Although it is a decent wiki now, and it must take a lot of work to keep stuff up to date. A lot of respect for those people.) Now the TW community trolling others is something different. What has the TW community ever done? Absolutely nothing.
Your point about the new mobile suits not decreasing skill cap is stupid too. I'm sorry but even my dead cat can play AR Brave, Wing ka or Sentinel.
The new trend of blaming alphaedge (for being good) is mostly due to people like yourself who whine about alpha every game you're in. "Blabla, he unbalances rooms, it's just not fun." Doesn't help that your parrot copies everything you do. You know what scares off new players? Your bullshit feud with Blarf over nothing.
Besides "Vandol kicking puppies again" makes you a hypocrite.
