From a quick skim of that thread... the person just said that they’d like a Switch version. I don’t get why that would deserve a warning?

It used to get pretty annoying on GAF when, a new game was announced, all you saw was people wishing it's released on a platform other than the one it's announced on. (Annoying? Yes. Ban worthy? No.) It's just how they do it. Like their rule for new news = new thread, even if a thread for the game already exists. (Having editable thread titles would help with that.) Which is another thing they do differently.

That's a bloody stupid rule to have, what's wrong with saying you would want it on a certain platform.

And so begins resetera becoming a place of retarded warnings and bans.

I thought it sounded stupid at first but why would you bother saying it?

They had to do it on GAF because with so many thousands of users you ended up with pages of people dropping in to post about wanting a game on a different platform rather than discussing the game itself, which made for shitty reading. Not such of an issue on a smaller forum like GRcade.

Looks like they didn't remove my sabotaging of the OP though, teehee: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=666385

What did you change the OP to?

Just removed all the content and left a couple of messages to say the 40K community had moved to resetera, and invited anyone reading to join.

Honestly it did get irritating as strawberry float when a thread would just be flooded with "Switch version when?"

For 3DS games it was a necessity really. Since it was confirmed exactly what the Switch was going to be literally every thread about a new game announcement for 3DS was filled with posts like "Should've been on Switch", "Would've bought this if it was on Switch" and "Nintendo should ban new games being released on 3DS"

With the place being run by ex-Neogaf mods it was always going to be moderated in exactly the same way as Neogaf.

I just saw a thread about the Switch version of Doom having a system level friend invite system after EA said there was no such thing and that was why they didn't include it in the switch version of Fifa 18, and someone got a warning for calling out EA as being too lazy to make use of the feature due to using the "old lazy-dev rhetoric". Thing is the thread proves that EA were exactly that in this case, lazy. There was a feature available within the console, they just didn't bother to use it for no explainable reason. What else is that other than lazy?

None of the GAF mods made it over to Reset Era as mods, saw some around as regular members though.

Edit: the 'lazy devs' thing and port begging issue were both already in Resetera's rules too:

The mods might not but if you have been in a place run in a certain way for yonks and you quickly move you are going to a load of the same values and methods with you as that's what you know as normal.

Is that lazy devs or is it bad decision making from people calling the shots and shitty PR...to me it seems like most game developers are insanely overworked and it's like a small miracle every time a game is successfully released.

Yeah, they were probably on a deadline and didn't have time to implement the feature. It was probably also partly budgetary reasons, I doubt the Switch version of Fifa 18 was the teams top propriety.

According to Metro only 1% of Fifa sales were for the Switch version.

Well it's hardly surprising because FIFA Switch was utterly gimped. If there is an example of "lazy devs" then FIFA 18 on Switch is the very definition of it.

It's not utterly gimped, it's absolutely fine. It's lacking a mode or two but it's still a very complete package with the added bonus of portability.

The lack of the friend invite was poor though.
