Why is there so much fighting lately?

«13
I noticed that most threads regarding the sims 4 turn into a warzone lately (I'm exaggerating of course), did something happen that I missed? Or is this because of the new "kit" thing?
I'm just curious since I've been absent for a few weeks 😅

    The new DLC "Kits" are causing a lot of controversy. Many people aren't akin to having more DLC thrown in their faces, myself included. But opinions are quite divided around here.

    This has been building up since the release of Sims 4. There are several factors at play and with censorship taking over the forums I can not go into detail. Buckle up it's going to get bumpy around here.

    I don't really think it's any more fighting than usual.

    People have very different opinions on things that bother them and other people are commenting that those things don't bother them, and it gets the "bothered person" upset because people aren't joining in with the "bothered topic" and so that person is trying to explain more about why it should bother the people who commented about it not bothering them and it just keeps going back and forth

    Just grab some popcorn and sit back and watch! :*

    That's kind of a one-sided take on a multi-sided issue, honestly.

    I've noticed that too. I politely commented on why I don't want Sims 5 & a certain player was mean to me, so I had to flag that player. I don't like mean people. I don't mind talking about opinions & not agreeing to popular stuff. I love diversity in a good way, not a mean way.

    I think its about the same actually. Whenever news pops ups sometimes there is controversy. There are people who are in favor, opposed to it, the opposers aggravating the supporters and the supporters aggravating the opposers and then each from each group making threads complaining about the other. Same as usual :D
    The Sims has currently lost its identity. Bring it back for TS5

    Oh, so it was the new kits after all (besides the usual disagreements that happen from time to time), thanks for filling me in!
    Boy, I can only imagine what will happen when they officially announce it next week 😅 the price better not be high or people will reaaaally get mad now.

    In short the return of the Sims 3 Store with the Sims 4 Kits is what making many upset. It was a buggy store that broke many saves in the Sims 3 and with how buggy Simmers say the existing packs are, ironic that they are wanting the most well known bugged content known to the Sims franchise.

    Plus politics messing with social media has caused huge divides between family members too beyond just the Sims. We are living in an angry and violent world now. People are craving for wars so much more now than when I was a kid.

    Oh, pick a topic. Everything causes "controversy" these days. But I think it was a combination of the Kits leak plus the free patch of content that made people go berserk. As soon as the devs breathe there's a hullaballoo, lol.

    You'd never even know that bunk beds were officially announced to be coming in March. (Waves tiny pom-poms.)

    I like the patch. Super excited the mod community was recognized for their amazing work. I'm happy about the bunk beds too. I don't think I have ever been 100% happy or disappointed in the Sims franchise. There has always been somethings I like and some I don't. It's like everyone has to pick a hype train or band wagon when I am just happy riding my safe Toyota with my dog. People are just too into the extremes these days which is odd.

    I agree. Maybe people just need a good dog or cat around to soothe those emotions. 😁 I guess the Sims 4 really does represent real people these days when emotions become the focus of our behaviors.

    It comes in waves. It’s not really about the kits, it’s just another one of those waves.

    I'm just going to say it, theres enough problems in real life, without agruements starting on here about a game, we all have different opinions but you can voice them in a respectful way and also just a thought yous can always just agree to disagree, I do stand by if you dont like something dont buy it, you wouldnt buy haggis if you didn't like it ? Would you ? 😂, a game is no different, if you dont like those kits dont buy them

    There seems to always be fighting following any kind of announcement of a new release.

    New stuff pack, game pack, expansion, freebies, updates; everyone comes out of the woodwork to give their opinion on said announcement... at least the forum is hardly ever boring 😄
  • comicsforlifecomicsforlife Posts: 8,023 Member
    people when ever there is news always complain
    also its the nature of the internet its what happens when people with different view points talk about things because there
    from different backgrounds and so what they all like is very different the one thing we all like on this forum is the sims
    and its not even the same sims game a lot of the time
    the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims

    I feel like it always happens when something new happens that's not what "the community wants" or doesn't meet peoples expectations.
    Some people end up disappointed and it just brings back up all their frustrations with the game, others feel like it's better than nothing or are happy with it and then get frustrated at other people for complaining so much. Then you bring the two together and..
