    I have noticed that the PvP section of the forum is been cluttered with
    "Help me With Muh Build" Posts recently. I know that the DLC is new and
    that alot of people are talking about it and its builds related to that
    which may be the reason behind the recent spam of these topics, but i
    believe that if it is going to continue how it is then we will need a
    Character Build Section to the forum to help promote more of a "How to
    Beat A Shield Camper" type topic enviroment. The How To Beat kinds of
    topics are what i originally thought the PvP section would of been like.
    So if you agree with me please post a comment,bring this to admins
    sight, and please vote.

    TL;DR Character Build Section Yes or No, and why?

    It's not a bad idea, but of course you have to make sure that the section will be used. An issue could be that people might just not post in it even if it is made, but I can see why you would want such a place.

    Also I'm sure the admins will see this soon and comment.

    We are trying to minimize the subdivision of the forums, as we don't want people to miss out on conversations or input because the community is too fragmented. We would not create another subsection unless there was a strong care for it.

    This topic was to prove this as popular or not as I have already talked to emergence and he told me the same as you just did. Still thank you for your input non theless

    I'm saying yes since I proposed this long ago.

    Yes. If it becomes too fragmented or doesnt get used, get rid of it. (Easy for the guy that has to physically do neither of those things to say, but still).

    Here's the caveat, if I may play devil's advocate.

    Build threads often become pvp discussions, and pvp threads often become build discussions. I think the delineation is clear in thought, but messy in practice. It's something like discussing racing without cars and vice versa, which is effectively impossible. What can happen is we wind up with two murky sections, and people maybe missing valuable tips because they spend more time browsing one section over the other.

    ......good points all around. Although I voted yes and wouldnt mind seeing the new section, Im also not worried if it never happens. Good points by both sides of the discussion. Just not sure if there is actually enough of a need for a change to constitute creating a new section.

    the final decision is up to you admins, this topic was just to suggest it into your heads just a little bit. Also i do understand how you do not want people to have split attention across 2 catagories. I myself jump over all of the topics but pay the least attention to the Archives; but the lingering question is: do you like this idea yes or no?

    Why not just sticky a character build thread onto the PvP section?
