whats with people and not trying

Postby dazzellerr on Tue Dec 22, 2009 5:56 pm

user skeezix seems to not have a brain in his/her head or something. i mean really, playing a level i made, and beat,but him/her not being able to beat it, saving the level untried mind you, and posting the comments "hey stoopid, retard can make a n unplayable level, go you". i mean really? is this what this game has come to now? bashing levels that are "too hard" for ones little brain? if you cannot do the level, dont go around and save a design without a design only to bash the level's creator. pathetic really. in case anyone actually has a clue, and you are interested in playing it, http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=484046 . it really is not all THAT hard, just time consuming.

it seems as of late, players are getting lazier and lazier about the levels they do. if it is too hard, they give it a bad rating or send hate mail. unfortunatly, i see no fix to this issue, but an ignore button would be nice, or a report as well.

thanks for letting me rant about this, it kind of bothered me. i used to be an avid player/designer, but this kind of stuff turns you off.

This belongs in the Feeback & Problems forum.

Yeah, you'll see those people. But you can't do much except ignore them. If you know you made a good level but it just gets 1 starred to death, post it here on the forums and other people will gladly try and solve it.

Skeezix is the spider of FC, we hate him but we need him to get rid of the people that make impossible levels (bugs)

It seems impossible, as the workspace is not large and the gaps seems to be larger than the design itself. Green & Brown are certainly impossible to accomplish.

I feel the exact way with nextfart, he beats like all my levels and says like, Just Throw On my level called Retrieve N Thro, and he just doesn't do it the right way. Also, he beats a ton of levels by glitching the ball into the goal. I can't wait until these guys get bored and just leave!

well at least i am not alone with this guy, perhaps a warning sent to him will make him "chill".
i will post my design up after the holidays, maybe someone will actually try and solve it before hand.

although you say people don't try, its really just people don't like taking a really long time to solve a level.
the average contraptionier doesn't like anything harder than the first 21 levels.
it's really the people on the forum the stand out with their really hard levels

This is what I got when I played with Linkzcap's design: http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=10014403

Now if only we could knock down the goal ball...

I want to try to beat the level the way it's intended (unlike zhyrek).
