Likeability by Implementation Fallacy

Nov 22, 2015
The Likeability by Implementation Fallacy is a fallacy I notice on this board, the Dorms, occasionally. It is when people say an idea is bad because it is unlikely to be implemented. They seem to think likeability is determined by implementation chance. But the likelihood of KingsIsle implementing an idea shouldn't determine how the idea is received. Judge the idea based on what you think of the idea, not what KingsIsle thinks of it. If the majority of players committed this fallacy, there would be much less favorable updates such as some of the updates that improved PvP and Wizard101 adding new loading screens.

Determine whether you like an idea not based on the likelihood of KingsIsle liking the idea. Base it on the likelihood of you liking the idea.
