Away from the internet the last two days, now there is a shit storm going on in mtg community. Can anyone let me know what is going on right now, I thought the SJW stuff was finally dieing down in mtg. Now people are losing their minds over youtube comments. Now there is talk about banning playmats and more trans fags in magic? Is the game changed for good?


>> No.47331209

Basically a couple of mtg female podcasters and streamers had a panel about how sexy playmats should be banned but women can wear what ever they want at FNM (tank tops showing cleavage) but should not be harassed. And how the game needs to be more inclusive. People and numales clashed in the comments and reddit. Also that "not all men" shit was thrown around as in now all men have to watch what they or others say as to not offend womens and trannys. People called them SJW's and they responded by saying they aren't trying to take anything away from players other than sexy alters, sexy playmats, certain words, sexy official art, and anything that is not "inclusiveness". Oh wait they are taking a lot, well fuck me mate

For a subjective definition of kill of course.

If you're a socialist, you want everyone or as many as possible to be able to enjoy cool stuff.

If you're capitalist, you realise that expanding the customer base means more income.

If you're a realist, you've seen the numbers and realised that the people whining about SJW and muh hobby are an extremely vocal, toxic and small minority who don't actually contribute that much money while shrinking the audience.

That minority might seem worth pandering to if your market share is nonexistent, but it's mostly just a bad idea.

Treating people like people really does help a community.

When people complain to me about another customer (outside of cheating or illegal things like harassment) I tell them to just talk to them about the playmat or the rude comment they said.

>> No.47334227

Yeah, ninety seconds in and my suspicions are confirmed. Nobody ever describes exactly where the line is between "sexist" and "not sexist" aside from a matter of discomfort: and never do I hear it described precisely what leads to that discomfort, nor do I usually see any attempt by the aggrieved parties or sympathetic judges to define a specific factor that is deemed unacceptable. So what is acceptable? If I bring a mat that features a fully and appropriately-clad woman in a completely innocuous situation, and my opponent claims they're triggered by [insert contrived grievance], does that opponent have grounds to register a complaint? Does the Judge have to render a ruling in their favor, or can they state that they simply don't see anything offensive and walk away? Can the Judge force me to use a different mat if they can't state a specific reason why the current one is considered "offensive" enough to warrant it, if it can be considered "offensive" at all?

The minute that people can start to expect a ruling in their favor based on the fact that they dislike something instead of it being based on a systematic application of specific and publicly known standards, the Judge system has been broken. If you can't understand that fact then you have no business being involved in competitive play, as a player or as a Judge.

It's a pretty common life cycle of all kinds of things.

Someone makes something cool, creative and/or weird (magic, warhammer 40k, a band, Star Wars, whatever.)

People like it and it gets fans on the strength of it's selling points and original features.

Then they make a sequel, or continue doing the same thing because it worked so well the first time. They get even more devoted fans who might not really get the finer points or inspiration for the first stuff, they just know they want more of the same (this is the point where people will literally buy anything that has stormtroopers and darth vader in it even if they don't give a shit about samurai movies or whatever other inspiration George stole all his ideas from, they don't want another thing with the same spirit, but a new vision, they just want more of the same forever)

Then the creators start getting greedy and thinking about widening the audience, by filing off the edges of their product and trying to appeal to the most amount of people possible by watering things down a bit and playing it safe.

At this point, some people start getting bored with it, and look for something more original or cooler, like the thing used to be in the beginning, and the thing sheds part of it fanbase that goes for something else, to begin the cycle anew elsewhere.

The only real way to win is to stick to your guns and produce content that surprises and challenges your audience while trying to stay true to yourself. Obviously this is a lot harder than just making more of the same and getting increasingly paranoid about rocking the boat.

>If you're whining about SJWs ruining things on 4chan and Reddit, you know nothing. But then, you likely are a teenager and it's not like Facebook is much better.

I left 4 for 8 in the second exodus and only returned as 8 has gone to complete shit and their /tg/ is dead. I browse exclusively /m/ and /tg/. I can sure as fuck tell you that SJWs have had a massive influence on the 4chan I spent almost 10 years shitposting on.

Many moons ago everything was aggressive and to the point, no niceties just straight up "Fuck you faggot" all the way. Now if you post something remotely aggressive on 4chan you get people replying with "That's toxic" "That's sexist" "it's problematic". And it's clearly not ironic shitposting but actual opinions held by these people. I have left threads purely because I can see the retards posting as SJW-lites at best and just can't be bothered to engage with them or read their shit any more.

Every internet social hub is run by SJWs because they have the most time to invest in this shit. We live in an era where the key "battle" strategy in our society is extremely feminine. A man makes something great, he then proceeds to share it with others, which makes it cool and "profitable" (maybe not in cash but in social status). This draws in the feminine people who want that profit and they use social engineering to get into seats of power and then feminize the site taking away the thing which made it cool. This is 100% visible on 4chan for any one who spent any real time here in the past decade. The nail in 4's coffin was the exodus's to 8. Yes 4chan still exists, yes 4chan has a larger userbase than 8, but all the original anons who were left here fucked off to 8 and carried on anonymous culture pre-chanology faggotry while the normies danced and reveled in their guy Fawkes mask going "we r anonymos XD" on every social media platform they could find.

There is no such thing as a "cure" in this case.
The "disease" will always return, the best you can do is isolate the parts that it claimed and remove them, replacing them with brand new parts.
When a community does something worthwhile, it inevitably attracts attention of less talented and less desirable people. The only thing you can do is to isolate yourself from them, either once in a time period (better, but more radical solution), or continiously (a worse, but less radical solution).

The school system said everyones a winner, daddy (probably left..) and mummy want to be your best friend instead of your leader. When you open twitter and post how crappy your day has been 10 people instantly respond to tell you how great you are and how sorry they feel for you. When you want something you just get on the internet and order it, so everything you want is right at your finger tips.

This is how you create them. You never teach them to grow into adults, they never face any real struggles in life so their struggles become panic attacks over social media shit. This is what helicopter parenting from single mothers creates.

2 things.

1, most people like women in their playgroups. Women get a fuck load of free social points just for existing, any one who denies this is a retard.

2, I hate women in my playgroups and will abandon groups because one joined. Women create drama either by themselves or by the way men start trying to compete with each other when one is around. Many a good guild/clan has been destroyed by a woman joining and suddenly the social dynamic completely warps and it becomes something entirely different. Men can't be men when a womans around, we have inbuilt social responses that change what we're willing to express and how (and the same applies the other way round). As such, I don't like the dynamic shift and will excuse myself to find another group where I don't have to deal with the school yard politics women bring to the table.

I'm sure you will all call me a sexist now and all that other shit. I will call you a creationist because you believe a sexually dimorphic species is exactly the same except reproductive organs and so adding a woman to the group is just like adding a man.

I understand your sentiment, but there's a difference between "sexually dimorphic" and "a women appears, suddenly all men change behavior radically". I never have seen that in action and all the gaming groups I've been in had at least two women.

The one time a group fell apart, it was because the DM had to be all mopey and awkward after a breakup.

Lastly, you seem to believe that men changing behavior around women is somehow the woman's fault.

I'll stop you there. That isn't the problem.
The problem is the mentality and ideology based around identity politics, and making mountains out of molehills to create artifical outrage, that these people bring in to a community.

There hasn't been a single sane person that ever said "women can't be in this group." Ever. You wouldn't think that was the case if you listened to these lying hypocrites, and they have mastered the art of lying quickly and on a massive scale through social media and sensationalist headlines.

It isn't "REE normies get out", it's a complete disregard for the core tenets and purpose of the group from the new crowd.
The only thing was asked from the original crowd was to respect the core tenets of the group, and that really isn't much to ask for. The problem doesn't lie among the girls who are there primarily to play games. The problem lies among the people who are not.

Those are the people that should be leaving "card game #464 group", not the people who want to play the game.

Equality is a bullshit idea though. People are inherently unequal and you're forcing YOUR way on people at gun point through the government.

Lets say I own a business, I've payed all my taxes, stayed within the law so far and I want to hire a new employee because I need a second pair of hands. When I was 12 I was beaten up by an Asian gang, they stole my wallet and since then I haven't been comfortable around Asians. Why should YOU get to decide if I'm allowed to say "No asians" when I put out my job application? What gives you or the government the right to control who I can and cannot hire based on my personal experience? You're literally saying "Do act on your own interest or we will kill/imprison you for doing so". Which is frankly tyranny, where is such a thing as "nice tyranny" and it's one of the most dangerous forms of it because people like yourself don't see the gun you're pointing at people to demand they act how you want them to. I believe Tolkien even said the most dangerous thing in LOTRs was if Gandalf took over the world because he would be acting in "people's interest" while lording over them like a tyrant and no one would notice this until they ran into his wrath.

Equality is bullshit and I don't agree all humans are equal or deserve to be treated equal. I believe some people are better than others and some don't deserve the air they breathe. We have limited resources and we're chasing ideas that waste resources and drag society down because of it.

Oh boy, /pol/ shit incoming.

The way women's minds work doesn't work well in politics. Simply put they evolved in a tribal/family environment so every decision is taken in that context. Men didn't evolve in that climate and as such they have a more abstract logic system which works better for dealing with strangers where context isn't as important. It's well documented if you want to read up on it.

I don't believe blacks are equal to whites in intelligence, the IQ ratios are off as if the time preference both races show. tl;dr I don't want idiots voting, blacks average IQ is 20 believe whites, so fuck idiot voters.

Equal under law doesn't work, we just women less harshly than men on every tier of the legal system. We can't be "Equal" if one side is more equal than another.

Lastly, I oppose universal sufferage and despise democracy. The average person on the street doesn't know how to run a country so we shouldn't be letting them vote for shit. People should earn their vote through working towards the betterment of their nation (Starship troopers style works great, read the book). But my actual preference would be a monarchy because I don't believe democracy works and is the worst system to have when picking leaders. A politician is held accountable to no one, if he fucks up (HEY OBAMA) then he can still loot everything the position is worth then leave in 4/8 years. Can't plan out projects beyond 8 years and has no interest in bettering the nation because he's got his so fuck everyone else. Where as a monoarchy has an interest in keeping his land and people in prime condition and to invest in it's future because he relies on it for his status. You do get shitty kings sure, but the people say "You're the king, you're in charge, we hold you accountable and if you don't fix it we will riot or go some where else". As such, monarchy works better than democracy.

Not a troll. You just live in a society where equality is the new religion. I took the time to think things through and came up with a counter opinion. I disagree with equality, I advocate for natural inequality and for the freedom of speech AND freedom of association.

Okay, now respond to my argument instead of me. Tell me why a child rapist deserves anything but a bullet in the skull and a shallow grave. Then I will ask you to pick between the world's leading brain surgeon and the pedo and tell me why you think both are equal and deserving the same.

Actually women do change everyone's behaviour. Men and women have different social status just based on their sex. If you treat a woman like a man you will be called sexist, you have to give women social perks and be nicer to them or people will think you're being a jerk to her.

Because, you see, pigs are more equal.

As for the whole spiel about black people, the problem isn't race, but the current culture within the black community that glorifies criminality and looks down upon being an upwardly mobile black person, and their lack of responsible leaders that actually want to achieve Martin Luther King's dream, as opposed to lining their own pockets through inflammatory race baiting.

If Group A has an average IQ of 80 and Group B has an average IQ of 100, which is likely to have more idiots?

Also I said I oppose democracy.

You're not making an argument here. "That's barbaric" is not an argument. I pointed out why democracy is a bad idea. If I need a plumber do I ask 1,000 non-plumbers for advice or do I simply ask a plumber? Democracy is asking the 1,000 people and it's a flawed system.

I'm not false flagging.

Race IS the problem. We evolved in different environments, blacks evolved in Africa where time preference needs to survival is different to the cold European climate whites evolved in. This is VERY important when it comes to stuff like criminal activity. If I have low impulse control (a trait blacks show) and I want something NOW I will steal it. If I have a lower time preference (i.e. I'm willing to save for it) then I'm less likely to be criminal.

The races are different, culture is born out of biology as well as location. It's not random chance that blacks are the most criminal race in every country they live, same way asians are the last criminal based on percentage of population.

Not him, but literally anyone with even a basic understanding of biology and anthropology can see his understanding of evolution and social growth is based on the assumption that humans evolved in a tribal structure. We did not. Nearly all of human evolution was in small, highly mobile tribes where such things like tribal hierarchy did not exist. Things like tribes and communities are very recent things, and thus could not have affected evolution the way he claims.

Because a monarch needs his kingdom to be a king. If it collapses then he loses his status and likely a lot of his wealth.

A politician knows he has limited time to act on things he wants. He has no interest in making sure tomorrow is better than today if he can get what he wants today. He also can't make plans that stretch for decades because he won't be in power to make it happen.

Lets say I want to build an amazing garden but it will take 20 years to grow the trees I need. if I know in 8 years I'm going to lose control of it and someone else will just ignore it and let it wither, do I ever start this project? Of course I don't, it's a waste of time and effort. Even though that garden would of been a tourists wet dream and made everyone in the society richer, happier and proud of their home a bit more.

I think what he's referring to is somewhat analogous to the tragedy of the commons, IE a monarch has a direct financial interest in the prosperity of his nation (more money around, more money to tax), so he will be better suited to develop it.

LRR, which makes Friday Nights is a group of leftist scumbags who among other things, also created Desert Bus for Hope.
>while that itself is fine, the rest of LRR is not in the slightest.
For instance most of their initial funding and the reason they didn't starve to death is because of DRUG MONEY. One of their former cast members, and initial backer, is now Victoria's largest drug dealer.

The LGS of Victoria for MTG is called Yellowjacket, and its owners caved to the raving left far earlier than the things we have been seeing the last few years. Although as thanks for prepping the bull, Wizards did give them special treatment over other LGS'.
>extra stock
>a lot of it

Ever hear of Planeswalkers for Diversity? Started in Victoria BC. Again featured by Wizards.

Not only started in Victoria, started by a local judge @tqmurdock who, along with the girlfriends of various other Judges including a L3, started cucking other judges into handing out punishments for SJWtier player conduct at events. This includes regional events.

Tifa Robles, former MTG community manager & founder of the Lady Planeswalkers Society? Great friend to the people over at LRR. She takes the boat over to Victoria and hangs out sometimes.

For the drugs? Obviously not. If I did I'd go to the RCMP, although I'm sure they know and are looking at the big picture, triads, Hell's Angels etc.

If you want to know more about all these connections? Just look at these peoples social media. They're all friends.

This SJW attempt to take over MTG is still fucking cancer though as first off they're definitely winning since WOTC is totally down with it but next they'll probably attempt to come for my beloved Warhammer.

You would think people who are all about inclusiveness and equality would see the setting of Warhammer and say "oh its not for me" but I guarantee they'll see it, decide its "problematic" and latch on and try to ruin it.

My only hopes are its too expensive for them to really sink their teeth into it, the fact that the 40K fanbase will just reeeeeeeeeeee if they start talking about how the setting needs to be changed so they won't have any actual fans down with what they're doing like they do for MTG, and the Games Workshop overlords won't give an inch.

Now I might sound salty, and to some extent I am. I lost MTG as a hobby because of these people. I love the game but don't enjoy it the same online and the local community is completely taken over by them.

I do, and it's not. The idea that humans have things like alpha males and females was based on some very, very outdated social Darwinist ideas from the turn of the century. More complex social hierarchies developed much later, as a response to growing social pressures from the change in lifestyles. Prior to the development of agriculture, people dealt with social pressure by simply leaving and not having to deal with it.

And when people left someone would pick the direction and take the lead. Have you never been in a group of people before? It is impossible for a group to function without a leader even if that leader simply says "lets go to the shop" and starts walking. He has become something the people following are not. He is THE leader at that moment in time.

You also know that a single example doesn't disprove the theory correct? Albinos exist in all races but that doesn't mean every Asian is snow fucking white.

Your childhood trauma is not my issue. I don't ask people to "not trigger me" when I feel uncomfortable, I accept my problem is MY problem.

Trannies cause 99% of the problems they have themselves. They're mentally ill attention seekers with hormone imbalances out the ass. This causes a shit load of problems they don't wish to take responsibility for. If they DID want to take responsibility they would be looking into medications we've seen evidence of working on gender disphoria and not plastic surgery which just ends in suicide either way.

I'm an art critic, so I'm pretty involved in the US art scene. These kinds of issues are big in the art world, and for the most part I think that is a good thing. For instance in my city (which I'm not going to name because I don't want 4chan knowing who I am), there was a gallerist and art dealer who is currently facing criminal investigation over multiple rape and drugging allegations. His strategy was to meet young men at the art school and university, offer them exhibitions of their shitty student work, get them drunk/drugged and take advantage of them in the upstairs "penthouse" above his gallery. Dude is a major creep, but it wasn't untill people started going public with their stories that it became clear that he was a serial rapist. I just took him for a creepy dude, but now my magazine refuses to cover his gallery (at least until his prosecution is finished or the gallery ownership changes hands).

Scotland is as bad as Canada mate. They're super liberal and haven't voted against Labour until the SNP took over, who are Labour who want an independent Scotland so they can let in Abdul and his mates.

It's proving my point that even a small group of guys going to the shop has a caste system. One person is leading, as such he has more control than the followers do.

I am 100% fine with trannies being murdered because I consider them extremely dangerous to society. You cannot allow mentally ill people decide what is and isn't acceptable in your society, it will lead it to a complete collapse. I'd be quite happy to see them all rounded up and shot.
