I'm finally going to say it. I hate it there. I post there when I'm bored but I've come to find it much more annoying than PBN.

This, is a perfect example why.

http://www.techpb.com/forum/index.php?show...t&p=1162523


Basically, most threads have someone bitching about something and everyone else agreeing. If a mod says something then you have to hang on his nuts. It worse than junior high and the cool kids. Its partially my own fault for going there when im bored, but I assume everyone out of junior high doesnt act like that.

This happens to me there all the time. I disagreed with Mike once and thought I was going to get banned.

What really gets me is that they talk about PBN being bad, I think they even made a video(?), but I post on PBN all the time and never encounter as much toolism that goes on there. Another member here said that they had less tools than Home Depot and I agree.

im not a big fan on either communities

although, more and more i go into techpb it seems like more of a occult...

it seems like most of the community worship Mike.. and all the guy does is reviews and some FPS. Tyger does the same thing and i dont see people going FIRST POST AFTER TYGER! or OMGZ! TYGER COMMENTED ON MY THREAD!!!!

i dont see any of that here, or on pbnation, which is why techpb seems more and more of an occult..

i dont personally know Mike, im no way trying to disrespect him, i like his videos, and i understand that HE did not make the little music video about Pbnation. but half of it describes techpb as well..

and if Living Legends 3 turns into a Us vs Them Scenario.. or if i so much as hear someone slamming me for playing with pbnation... lets just hope the mic on the helmet cam catches it.. so i can put it on youtube and everyone can see how big of a bunch of A holes they really are..

I hate being nit picky but I think the word you are looking for is cult. Occult has more to do with paranormal activity...

i know my wording is not exactly right... dont forget the grammar police on here are after me...

but here is an example of why some of them should have their heads checked..
someone asked about going alone to a scenario game.. and this was a response i could not help but chuckle at..

Three words: Mike is going.

Need I say more?



edit:

CULT was the word i was looking for...

I really only go there for the off-topic stuff. I've watched a few of his vids, and they are rather informative. I tried being active in the scenario section, but that gets drowned out by the thousand living legends posts and people only paying attention to Mike's posts. I got nothing against him, just rather hard to help out smaller scenarios when no one pays attention.

I've watched some of the videos, and have found some good advice...but have also seen some things that I disagreed with, but you really can't go against what he says without being attacked...although, sometimes I feel the same way about here.

MACK .... WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT .... BLAH !!!!!

lol

i get a kick going over there to goof off and see what they say, cuz their humor is not as up front as it is here ... they tend to be a little more uptight ... and they DONT like being questioned ... lol ... i also get a huge kick out of all the kids that hero worship mike and try to be first poster and call him the god, guru, etc ... i think it is more like a game though for them ... to be the first poster after he posts ... sorta lioke our lounge games or playing slug bug

lol ... i can feel the lub .. :tup:


i am a liittle surprised by the amount of SO members over there .. not that it is a bad thing or a good thing ... i guess i just didnt expect that many members from here, over there. i am also pleasantly surprised by the fact that mike sticks up for and supports SO when he does say anything about the forum or products ... stand up guy

i have only read about mike say something about spec ops once..

and thats when someone tried slamming spec ops for making the havock launcher holster..

but Mike said he was buying one.. so maybe he will review it after LL3

i also use a different name over there, and hardly ever post.. just keeping a low profile.. i do see spec ops products get mentioned time to time though.. i think i saw something about the scurry pack .. cant be too sure though

While there were some stupid responses the one guy that had the long response to you was right...paintball is totally differnt than basketball but lets say right now lebron james wanted to go back and get a degree it would be absolutely ridiculous to let him play and I dont even think they would allow them.

Vicious is taking advantage of a loophole in the system...idk why they are doing this mainly because they got their crap handed to them at Phoniex they should be playing hard teams and getting better not playing down just to say they are winning.

Vicious should at least play in the tougher division, while what they are doing isnt wrong its pretty stupid and immature their entire team rests on DSS and the Vicious name they really shouldnt be doing something like this.

tl;dr They guy was right your analogies were flawed but yes techpb has lots of idiots and 98% of them post stupid irrelivant things, and vicious needs to sack up and get good so they can compete in pro instead of sandbagging lower division leagues just because they can.

Actually, they did that to me there. "OMG! TYGER COMMENTED!" I just shrug it off, mostly becasue I'm just a player too. I fanboy some people too, the difference is my icons made the game possible to play today.

As far as here, I think you guys are just used to me more than anything else. I'm just some guy, ya know? PB Nation has a culture of fearlessness and aggression, remember when Bill Gardner made a few posts? It's more like the old days of rec.sport.paintball!

As far as LL3 goes, Mike has a standing and public feud with PBN, personally I could care less other than it's fun to make fun of the agglets who think style > substance. One thing about TechPB is that they get stuff done when they want to, which is commendable. But it really doesn't matter to me how LL3 comes out, I'm probably not gonna be there. The $500 repair bill for my jeep just ate my fun money, let alone my food money, and there's easily another $300 I need to pour into it.

Funny thing, last year Mike pulled some strings and I went from not going to being a "legend" at the event. This year, not a word from anyone. It's just as well, I prefer not being a "legend". I'm just "some idiot with a video camera", at least according to 95% of the industry. :tup: (Is there an "emo" icon? Anywhere? Smallest violin playing "My heart bleeds for you"? Anywhere?)
