    It's nerd slang for "street cred"

  • NadiaNadia Topsham, MaineMember Posts: 11,866 Uncommon

    the term vet gets tossed around loosely

    and it can apply to anyone whos played a few rpg games

     

    using the label old school makes sense to me,  but vet doesnt

    but i guess thats just me

    most heated arguments on this forum devolve into a variation of:
    "you are not me and that is bad"

    Oxymorons such as: "Soloable group dungeons" or "Soloable endgame raiding".

    "Well "x" should have been included at launch" .

    Where "x" = any MMO feature you've ever known ,seen,heard of or imagined from every MMO ever or yet created and then added together.

    This is my favorite counter to the "this is a great game because it sold so many copies..." argument. What else can I say now? image

    If I were a pro troll, I would pick somebody from this list and reply to all of their posts with the cliche they hate.

    You can still say it, because it's true. People consume products in mass quantities all the time with no correlation to certain variables.

    I know. But the people who need to read it aren't going to read it.

     

    I have another one... People that think everyone else is the problem when they are as bad.

    I will readily admit this is one I am guilty of...

    If WoW was ruining the MMO genre, why did everyone continue to support it for so long. :S

    So a forum account with a join date 3 years old and 4 posts makes you superior in what way? LOL @ your LOL.

    My favourites on the topic of a game sub:

    "It's like buying a Ferarri..."

    "it's all P2W"

    "They did a bait-n-switch!!!!!"

     

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    I love it when people call an mmo a "money grab". Especially ones that involve upwards of 100+ people over the course of 4+ years and tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of dollars. Yes, is all just an elaborate scheme to purposely make a crap game for a quick buck.

    I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.

    Jesus. That was a post I would have just assume take back.

    I'll blame the rack of Dunkel Weisen for allowing that post to go way over my head.

    Please elaborate on the faceplam. I don't see how disregarding the opinion of another due to their join date is in any way justified. If I misunderstood sarcasm I will accept that, but I didnt see any evidence that is what it was.

    Yeah, the rubber and glue Im going to blame on a rack of Dunkel Weisen, but the point remains the same.



    His original post was an example of a forum cliche. Thats what this thread is about. You took it literally and went on the defensive. When actually, he was just giving an example of something dumb people say around here.
