    Im glad they finally analyzed the way the rep system was used and came to the same conclusion I did years ago - that it was mostly abused due to the way rep impact scaled in order to troll new users who didnt agree with the masses into automod status simply due to disagreement.

    A report only system is enough really. Either a post violates forum guidelines or it doesnt. Report is also harder to abuse because each instance of reporting idraws mod attention, where rep did not. This will cause those who used to abuse the rep system ad nauseum to check themselves before mashing the "disapprove" button simply due to intolerance of disagreement online.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    Agreed report only a pos/neg system can work but not the one we had and in the end a report only will prevent rep wars and hurt feelings.


    But a pos rep only is just silly.

    The ANTI-Realms FANBOI NUKE THE REALMS ITS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO BE SURE
