With Doomfags (aka Doomers or Doomposters) fully taking over and derailing Ms /co/ 2023, we need to discuss these spammers who are damaging tournaments and how to limit their damage.

>Who are they
Essentially, Doomers try to derail all discussion of tournaments with meta "sky is falling" mentality. They are not sincere in their intention or what they say, but want to cause as much chaos as possible for "fun" and/or try to get interest in tournaments to decline rapidly. They will make a talking point whatever side they think will cause more controversy while not beliving what they say.

Common signs of doomers include:
>Having fake mental breakdowns over even the most minor of rules changes
>Constantly trying to make entire threads a meta discussion about the hosts of tournaments or what hosts of tournaments are doing instead of the actual tournament
>Trying to "coup" hosts out or especially make splinter threads they hope will get mods to remove official threads instead of theirs
>Trying to asterisk any single character regardless of what happens, especially tournament winners. Fang in particular is brought up a lot, but they will hyperfocus on certain characters as "rigged" as well
>Mass spamming anyone who discusses anything outside their doomer topics with doom posts or trying to claim rigging
>Pretending they are "riggers" to seed doubt

What are the best ways to limit their presence?

How about you blame the retard host for causing so much shit and throwing tournaments into question instead of making more boogeymen for people you disagree with.

I'm just kidding. To be serious, I think this thread grossly misinterprets the events and what caused the drama and so called doomfagging to create a new boogeyman possibly unintentionally. Email checks no matter how you feel about them are a pretty big change that you can't just go for without a consensus and uploading pie charts without the vote total initially of course people would see as shady. There were moments when people started to have fun then NSA would pop into the threads at bump limit to poorly respond to criticism in a way that made him look egotistical and leave when someone brought up good points against him leading to anger for the next several threads. NSA's bad communication extends to the other hosts with the drama at the end about the loser's bracket. It wasn't just the changes, it was how NSA handled them. People had every right to be pissed that this tournament made for the board was being handled by someone who doesn't care what the board thinks. NSA could not afford another year of mistrust and doing things impulsively after 2022 because people were especially tired of him following that year. There was actual trolling though. I think there were some good reasons made and actual genuineness to people saying this year should be asterisked, but going after specific characters was trolling. The campooners vs. anti-campooners funposting that was used to ironically declare this year rigged or legitimate and the IC feeding was some more of it. Debatably, the trolling came from the declining quality of the tournament.

I think the campaign arguing stuff would've went down regardless cause it's been brewing for years and people predicted it would start. But the atmosphere of the tourney probably exacerbated it.

I agree OP is also misinterpreting things, but there's a distinct contrast between anons expressing genuine concerns about NSA's actions and their potential impact on the tournament, and those who are merely using the host's mistakes as a convenient scapegoat for their personal grievances with the results (their picks losing, a character they don't like going far, etc). I can't find the post in question, but I vividly recall this exchange I had with an anon during late quarterfinals who pretty much told me "I'm going to keep complaining and filling the threads with shit just so you can't campaign for your shitty boring character".

Yeah, NSA was the biggest cause of the frustration in this tournament, he really needs to word and time his announcements better.

Fair points. I still think the majority were not like that. I was pretty pissed at NSA and liked the elite eight.

We didn't even get a say on it in a poll that he could have posted on /tnt/ to avoid the perigger. He just went for it. Also, I think the threads devolving into nothing but constant drama is more than enough of a sign.

We were on the verge of something new and different when we had the option to vote for Mr. /co/ to be the first tournament hosted and THEN Ms. /co/.

I don't think a lot of things would have changed. If anything it's a blessing in disguise Mr. /co/ wasn't the test subject for NSA's retarded last minute decisions.

I doubt that kind of change would do much to shift to dynamic between the tournaments. If NSA applied email verification because Ms. /co/ qualifiers had cheating, it would have still happened if the event were to take place in October instead of September. Mr. /co/ ending with the double elimination drama sounds fucking hilarious though.

"doomers" probably isn't the right term, as it can conflate kicking down any complainer, legit reason or not. And threads to an extent do have an understandable reason to go to shit if something controversial goes down happens. Like the Op was made in response to last years ms. /co/, which had all the NSA shenanigans, which later turned out to be worse than thought.
What you're really thinking of is chaosfags.
