EDIT: Alright, obviously the old title was irrelevant. But at least I hope now people won't even think it's a possibility that I might be lying. I didn't do enough restrictions by only posting in my threads I need to avoid them as well, and that's what I'll do I won't post at all. The only posts I'll reply to are the ones sent to me privately.

You need to get thicker skin. That's really all there is to it.

 

If you are putting your opinion out there on a public forum - be it in an IRL debate, in RS, on the forums, or even here - that opinion is there. People are allowed to discuss it, analyze it. You're doing it right now for another point of view that isn't your own, do you realize that? (Also, calling the opposition full of "lies and misinformation" is a hollow and incindiary statement - no one has lied to you here and I doubt they have elsewhere.)

 

If people casually correcting you in these public discussions is how you judge harassment, I have good news for you. You have an ignore list - here, on RS, and practically on any form of online communication. Use it.

 

I don't want you to leave. But maybe you need to take a break rather than carrying this chip on your shoulder into every discussion you wade into. Come back when you're a little more collected, you'll have a better time.

Didn't you post a similar thread like this a couple of months ago? What's happened now?

Alright, I'll try rewording the original post, but to what? Can anyone help me out?

I have had many replies saying something along the lines of "dragon battleaxe sucks and that's a fact, deal with it.", I'm leaving if this continues.

Well there are better weapons, but it's up to you what ones you want to use...nobody can force you.

Because if you're discussing utility, power, and comparative stats across tiers...it DOES suck. And you need to accept that while you're entitled to your opinion on what your favorite weapon is, although you are more than welcome to do just whatever the heck YOU want, recommending a dbaxe to anyone as a viable weapon choice it will be torn apart as being a poor choice.

 

What exactly do you expect to have happen? More over, what do you want to see happen in those cases?

That's because (for example) you were asking for combat advice (how to kill something or how to get more kills) or something similar without wanting to use higher tier weapons. The fact is there isn't really a magic bullet to make it work a whole lot better. Objectively, there are many weapons that do more damage and hit more accurately. There's only so much you can do with it. You can go for Woox style kinds of challenges maybe but you can't hope to compete or come close to what people do with drygores, for example.

Forget this it's not worth it.

I can't even address anything without making it worse for myself. Let's just drop this.

I am very sorry Blaze. I'm not posting like this to kick you when you're down. I just believe you deserve honesty, even if it's harsh. So that's what I give. You're a good person and I admire your quirks, please don't think otherwise.

Also I specially remember someone saying "abyssal whip is better than dragon battleaxe, that's not an opinion that's a fact". How the hell is that NOT trying to force views down my throat? I had good reason to counter argue that, but no it was ignored.

That's it that's the last straw, I'm gone.

Because it is a fact. The whip is a higher tier weapon and has more accuracy.

The only way it would be worse is if you're talking about looks. Then that would be opinions.

That's exactly the reason I'm leaving I'm tired of you people rdiciulating me simply because you claim it's a fact when something is clearly an opinion, it's unacceptable and it is elitism whether you wanna admit it or not.

This is not ridicule though Blaze. You are presenting a statement as fact and it is being rebuked. If you have data to suggest that a dragon battleaxe outperforms a whip, then please explain how and in what scenarios. And it is not an opinion that an abyssal whip outperforms a dragon battleaxe in terms of dps. It IS a fact. What information do you have that suggests otherwise?

 

But if you're talking about personal preference, then of course we can't say that an abyssal whip is better for you. You do what's best for you.

Yes it is elitism because you are trying to prove me wrong for liking dragon battleaxe. Don't say "i respect your opinion" when I clearly acknowledged the facts and it was ignored just to bring up something irrelevant.

If you LIKE the dbaxe, then I am not trying to prove you wrong. Like it all you want. Everyone is entitled to playing how they want.

 

If you are trying to say that a dbaxe OUTPERFORMS an abyssal whip, that would be incorrect. If you are trying to recommend to others a dbaxe as an OPTIMAL CHOICE, that would be incorrect. And people will call you on it.

 

Do you not see the difference?

I swear i'm repeating myself, but iirc you ask for peoples help with killing monsters...and then complain when they suggest using better weapons.

 

Nobody is forcing you to use these weapons, they're just giving advice...you don't need to take it. I don't take a lot of advice because I like to play the game how I want to.

 

Sometimes I eventually come round and stop being so stubborn about it...like when I didn't use overloads for Nex despite Dragonkng198 constantly telling me to. He still let me boss with him, and then I realised how overloads were perfect for Nex with the poison attack and sara brews drop, and so now I use them.

 

But look...

 

Dragon Battleaxe:

 

Tier: 60

Damage: 894

Accuracy: 1132

Speed: Average

 

Abyssal Whip:

 

Tier: 70

Damage: 672

Accuracy: 1486

Speed: Fastest

 

Overall...the whip is better.
