    Hockeyzombie got a reaction from Aurelio23 in Free ParaGoomba Slayer!   
    I'm fairly certain that you have to go really far to get banned without warning. I sent Force Awakens spoilers to a guy out of spite and all I got was warned in no uncertain terms not to do it again. Knowing ParaGoomba, he probably received several warnings and refused to listen because he seems completely incapable of reconsidering his opinion or entertaining the idea that he might be wrong. That Reddit thread linked earlier has him angrily denying that he's ever been wrong about anything X-Wing related (not hyperbole; his exact words were "I was right all the time" and he defends that claim when challenged on it). ParaGoomba is the kind of guy that thinks that if he's correct it justifies nearly any level of dickery when interacting with people that are not. A good example is his proud story about allowing a player to reveal several dials, move them all, and then perform all actions...right up until the first exchange of fire, when he insisted that the other guy missed his chance to perform actions on all but one of his ships. According to PGS, this is totally okay as the harsh treatment will encourage the other player not to take this (completely reasonable time-saving*) approach in the future. He's like that in arguments, too. A couple of new players at different times expressed a fondness for the Millennium Falcon and the Outrider, and PGS drove both away from the forum (and the Falcon guy away from the game entirely) through sheer hostility. When people called him out he refused to admit that he was being an ass on the grounds that there was one less turreted ship in the game. 
     
    *Moving several ships and then performing actions for them is fine, so long as none of them reposition in a way that might have interfered with other moves. I can't see any reason at all to say that a player who intends to move several ships straight forward and then focus should be absolutely required to move them one at a time if they all have the same PS or would otherwise move one after another anyway. If his issue was with someone executing barrel rolls with ships that should have bumped or something he would have a point.

    We get warnings, but I'm not sure other people can see them. If you see "1 warning point" below my name and avatar, then I'm mistaken. I know when I got my warning I was sent a PM by FFGEvan telling me what it was for and clearly stating that I should not do it again.

    I honestly can't see why anyone would want him back. Watching him throw a fit over everything was kind of funny, until it got old and he just kept doing it. It stopped being funny and never started again. Everything was somehow both too garbage to play and OP at the same time, and no matter what you played it said something bad about you as a person (triply so if you played an Outrider or a primary turret). Much like another poster in this thread, I realized he was banned when I wandered onto the forum after a while and was trying to figure out why everything seemed so much friendlier. Then I saw people discussing PGS' ban and it immediately made sense.

    Strictly speaking, he wasn't the one breaking rules because his opponent was moving out of sequence (I'm assuming this wasn't a game where he asked to do the same thing). That said, I feel that it should be a rule that you have to warn your opponent if you're revoking permission to do that, so that dirtbag moves like suddenly caring about proper move sequence when combat is about to start don't happen. While this was technically within the rules, it was so incredibly greasy that I actually dislike it more than a lot of actual cheating I've seen. There's a certain hostility to the opponent in what he did that just doesn't seem present in things like rigging your dice roll or trick shuffling your damage deck. Those suggest someone who cares too much about winning; PGS' actions suggest someone who really hates his opponent and wants to make them unhappy.

    If I remember correctly, he kept trying to incite a boycott of FFG, accusing them of knowingly selling us "broken" ships with the intent of selling us fixes later on. Most people rolled their eyes and told him to pay for his ships like everyone else. Then he started getting rude when nobody wanted to jump on his bandwagon. "Someone" sent him spoilers concerning the fate of a certain nerf-herder. I think he quit the game after that.

    PGS is famous (or should that be infamous) for not allowing players to take missed opportunities when a timing window has passed, no matter how relevant or how soon after that window. Even when taking that missed opportunity doesn't change the current state of the game, because in his words "it's cheating". But when the shoe is on the other foot however, he expects a bit of leniency. Here's a wee selection of his posts on the matter.
     
     
    I really can't see him allowing any of these to happen if the roles were reversed.
     
    And this one's the proof.
     
    If the rules only apply when it suits him, how does that make him a "fair" player?

    If a total stranger walks up to you at a party and starts insulting your hair, your clothes, and your speech patterns, then mentions that "oh! You really need to meet my friend John!"
    You're probably going to avoid John.
    Your description of the video OP linked to is much more interesting.

    I always just kind of skimmed over stuff he said. Occasionally I would rise to the bait, but I've been endeavoring to make cuban's quote in my sig my philosophy on this (and other) forums. Posts by PGS were just something you had to chuckle to yourself about. I knew a few people with similar attitudes (from what I've seen of PGS to compare to anyway) and you just have to wait out the storm and actively choose to not have that negativity in your life.
    The straw that broke the camel's back, however, was some brand new player gushing about how much they were excited about the game. Their favorite ship in lore and game was the Outrider. Guess what happened. When you start horrifically insulting a brand new member of the forums and a new comer to a game that we all enjoy, you are a toxic presence that needs to be countered not by insults but by a chorus of voices supporting the other side.
    And finally, PGS, if you are reading this forum or have a sock puppet account, some words that may help find a little balance in your life. I first saw this here on the forums of all places, but I forget who said it:
    It's a game. The objective is to win, but the point is to have fun.

    Legit, I eventually figured out that he was banned one day while wondering to myself why the forums seemed so much more pleasant recently. That's a real thing that happened. I just thought "The forums have been good recently. What's up?".
