This is why people don't like Griftrix's responses:

Griftrix: "Yeah but if you added enough sugar to apples, they would eventually become the best fruit of all!"

End simulation.


Hope this clears things up for you Griftrix.
To be honest if someone said that in response to what you said, I would probably lol. Then give that guy a high five. And take him out for lunch. And then ask him to come over at night for some fun.

... I don't even understand the OP's illustration. How does this parallel Griftrix's arguments?

he's just trying to make it clear that he has no actual experience on the matter, and therefore you shouldn't feel defeated just because he made a point against you.

Just continue the argument, that's the fun of it all!

This sounds extremely gay.

From what I've seen of Griftrix, he seems fairly zealous with regard to Riot Games, and seems to play Devil's Advocate when Riot's design choices are questioned.

I don't think he's disrespectful or rude at all, but I do think that people take it a bit worse than, say, Morello, who will either admit a problem or give a damn good reason as to why it works the way it does.

However, as Griftrix says, he's not a game designer, so he can't take a position the way Morello can, because it's not in his jurisdiction within the company.

I saw the thread earlier where Griftrix was accused of comparing oranges to apples, and I don't think his arguments were as unsound as you imply. They were purely theoretical, though, so of course they can't hold as much weight as when one of the actual designers walks in and says "this was what we were thinking."

So in all, I think people are being a bit unfair and giving him a bad rap for being involved with the community.

People don't like him because they want him to be wrong, or agree with them since he's not a designer, but he does neither so they hate him.

In the post that had everyone QQing, Griftrix was offering irrelevant counterpoints, like the one I illustrated in my OP.

While he was just trying to illustrate the point that utility isn't ALWAYS greater than damage, people were frustrated.

So I'm using a simple example to show him why people respond negatively to what he says.
