Needs a clean-up. Lots of errors like the incorrect use of too and confusion between a and an. :ugeek:

Yeah let me go over that, I had made it in a hurried rage at the amount of "fail" threads and lost all control over my grammar/spelling.

When you're done, I'll check over it for any more errors. I'll repost the first post with any corrections I spot. :)

I've been seeing more and more pointless balance threads, therefore I have made this quick, simple, and easy guide on how and when you should post a balance thread.

Five questions to ask yourself before you make a thread on balance

1. Are there already other threads about the same thing I was going to make a thread on?

2. Does the issue really belong in the Balance & Tactics sub-forum?

3. Is this an actual issue, or am I just angry about losing against a better player?

4. How many games/hours have I played? Could not having enough experience in the game be clouding how I perceive the issue?

5. Do I perceive "X" as an issue due to the Naut I main? Is it possible that a simple change in playstyle could be the answer?


How to make a well received balance thread

10 Tips for making a better thread

-Avoid the wall of text. Break up your thread to make it easier on the eyes.

-Avoid making a one sentence thread. Even if your point is valid, it may be dismissed due being so sparse and undetailed. This doesn't mean that simple is bad, but if you haven't outlined your idea enough people may not be able to understand quite what you are getting at.

-If you suggest a balance change tell us why you think it should happen. Don't just say you want it without proper reasoning.

-Make sure your thread is spelled correctly and you don't have any major grammatical errors. While this is a bit of a minor point it is much easier to read and understand a correctly spelled post then one with sloppy spelling.

-Think out your thread before writing it. A well thought-out thread makes it much easier on everyone reading it.

-If you want a nerf on a 'Naut/upgrade/ability you need to make sure that you don't come off as wanting the nerf because you just have trouble countering it. If the reason you do want the nerf is because you have trouble countering "X" then you need to prove that it is unbalanced.

-Give proof and data to back up your claims and points.

-Make sure your proposal is as simple as possible, while being as effective as possible.


These last two tips, apply more to responding to comments, after the thread is made

-Don't ever answer a comment angrily. Instead, intelligently explain why you think such and such is wrong in the least insulting manner possible.

-You do not have to answer every single comment! If you feel like you need to answer multiple comments, wait until you have a few to answer. Then you can quote and answer them in one post.


Hopefully this will help you in make threads as well as help clean up some of the clutter inside the Balance & Tactics sub-forum.

Other Helpful Tips

Try to get the simplest, yet equally/most effective, suggestion possible to fix a supposed balance problem. Many people suggest some very radical changes or even a complete overhaul, which sometimes won't even fix the problem. But a much more basic and simple fix could get a similar or better result. XD

Also, basic and simple suggestions are much more easy to implement and test.



Also feel free to suggest other tips or ask questions. :)

Whether or not you change the text to seem more formal isn't too much a hassle, I'm just here for spell-checks and small format changes. :)
