    Are ... people like that really existing .. ?

    I thought such vulgar and pointless desires were reserved to caricatures ?

    Actually, playing a support role does come with a lot of satisfaction, and people who have much simpler roles, such as DPS are often thankful about it. A good tank is reward with positive feedback as well, and it's nice to be appreciated.

    I take it you play DPS roles usually.  Even though I knew how this game was going to play, I still wanted to act as a pure healer in WvW, but couldn't.  It's not just about being thanked.  Without support in most games, the other players are useless fin sustained combat.  It's fun and challenging to keep people up.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Complaining about lack of dedicated heal role is pointless, it is not part of this game. Everyone is responsible for healing and should be resizing people to benefit the battle- e.g. Resizing someone will give greater benefit to the fight than dpsing. There is also a very good reason why there are no dps/hps monitors in gw2. It discourages the mentality where appearing to be the top player is more important than doing what is correct.

    You just described 99% of the posters on this message board.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
