    Written and signed by a no-lifer enthusiast that rages at others in LoL when he loses :v In all honesty, you know that this is like trying to impose your opinion on other people, this is YOUR EXCLUSIVE NERD CASUAL FILTHY List, let me make that clear. I dont see youtube video, I first fight the boss, and figure it out myself, because Im intelligent and don't want the fun of the game which is EXPLORE AND DISCOVER to be ruined by the selfishness of others who only seek veterans to farm over and over again. What if you are the first on the boss, there are no YT Videos, what will you do? Not play it until there is a video? Pathetic this list... I agree with some points, but still, pathetic in many.

    It is a troll article. I mean half those are b.s. No hardcore raider likes filling out those guild apps. It's an unnecessary evil! XD

    the list was kind of meh... The people taking it serious otoh was well worth the price of admission.

    This thread is just another be nasty about something thread - albeit at least with humour.

    rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW > oblivion > LOTR > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(1000 elementalist), Wildstar

    Now playing GW2, AOW 3, ESO, LOTR, Elite D

    yup sounds like the typical tosser raider.
    I do/partake in some of these points.
    but the consistent elements working against players becoming "hard core"
    is shitty communities and the power/gear obsessed raider. illustrated perfectly above.

    You Don’t Raid - For some reason that sounded like something a WoW fanboi would say.

    You Don’t Use Voice Comms - Should have added that a Skype-using guild is a filthy casual one ;)

    Nice read, cheered up my morning! :D

    Cheers.

    Hahn this thread is just for Lolz. But yeah I kinda agree with the pvp point. People boast how pvp is always different and that pve is easymode cause it's scripted. Well pvp is extremely repetitive too. It doesn't require that Much more skill either :D

    Play Eve Online and then come back and say that.

     

    As for this article I seriously hope its a joke seeing how they have just insulted just over 3/4 of the mmo population. Hardcore raiders and pvp'ers are in the minority in most mmo games.

     

    I subscribe to the news letter for gaming news if this is the kind of dribble I can expect I will be taking my leave.

    Now we just need a game that's worth playing more than casually and we'll be set.  P.S. How do you youtube a fight you're trying to get world first for? Freaking casuals.
  • gunmanvladgunmanvlad Member UncommonPosts: 278

    Some of these I'd say are funny, some are odd to be honest.

     

    Yes, some content is not experienced by everyone...what's so special about that? Do you mean to say that in every OTHER (non-MMO) game that you play.... you go and discover eeeeeverything? but then in MMOs you get lazy and don't "raid to see the content"? Makes no sense afaik..

     

    And guild applications are there for a reason. Hardcore players spend time and money on MMOs...lots of it. When joining their group you are using up their time, money and effort...YES, JUST like a job. It's their choice to play the game that way, and I know hardcore players who have gotten sweet promotions BECAUSE they were successful in MMOs. You fill in applications even for crappy jobs, don't see why you wouldn't do so for top guilds.

     

    The ask for help, forced raiding, etc. were all spot on tho heh.

  • cyriciancyrician Member UncommonPosts: 176

    I am sorry OP but it's people like you that give gamers a bad name. Please  let me know what ONE mmo you are playing so I can avoid it like the plague.

     

    The sad thing is you think your an elite player you have no clue. Maybe it's just your attitude but I think you need to learn humility.

    Current games;
    Star treck online
    Rift
    Eve online
    Firefall

    Was just issued a warning for my "satire" response to your "satire" thread. Not for trolling but for flaming LOL. Bunch of fucking hypocrites around here.

    Is the satire aimed at all of the users of this site who have received bans for equally satirical observations? 

    I mean it is an entertaining read but it does stick in the throat a little.

  • tordurbartordurbar Member UncommonPosts: 421

    I am assuming the article was meant to be tongue in cheek. For me it was kind of sad. For two years both my sons exhibited the raid behavior. Thankfully for our sanity and their futures they broke out of it and went pvp and then out of mmos.

    Even though it is satirical, I get the feeling it is hitting too close to home for people...

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    and there is the external link about it. I just enjoying games not losing time on them.

    I am shocked at the replies in this thread. Are you people completely devoid of a sense of humour? This was supposed to be a joke but here we have so many butthurt people posting ridiculous responses. It's quite amusing!

    Seriously though, the difference between trolling and satire is intent. 

     

    Yeah? Because I can't actually remember the last time a mod here asked me about my intent before suspending or whatever for alleged trolling.... If they had I would have happily told them I was being 'satirical'.

     

    I am so happy this is now MMORPG.com policy, it is a fantastic step forward that we are now going to enter discussions regarding intent before action is taken!
