    Isn't that the point of pvp? ;]

    Grown men acting like 12-year-olds beating up on each other to feel better.

    Anyhoo, Girl Gamer here too... been on Lotro since the beginning. Was in WoW and even UO before that, plus a bunch of rpgs and rts games as well. Married, no kids, usually can be found kicking around ME with hubby. Aussie too, not that it makes that much difference - apart from the time zones but E caters for that just wonderfully.

    Ok, back to work... 2 more hours!

    girl gamers are not the stereotypes everyone thinks. I went to paxeast and yes many of the guy gamers fit the stereotypes but the girl gamers do not.

    Met many nice girls but still find oddly i like to play w/ the boys.

    The girls a lot of the time in the game get very competitive boys just stroke their epeen.

    This girl loves pvp .

    will always love pvp , yet i do find more girls being support roles.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who has made that observation. I find that girls get very weird about other girls getting any attention at all from their throng of male admirers (I'm talking about the types of men that fall all over themselves when a girl talks in vent). It's silly, since this is a GAME, not real life, and the men (or boys) whose attention they're vying for probably don't look anything at all like the fantasy they've concocted.

    Well, I can vouch for the fact that my honey looks not all that unlike his original avatar when I met him did (back in Everquest). Perhaps Talya would comment on her honey's likeness to his avatar.

    Technically, though, I wasn't really vying for his attention, more like vowing to avoid that sort of thing and swearing off men completely in real life. I think it was the whole fact it *wasn't* real life in my mind that's how he snuck in. Darn men. :P

    Just to be clear, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with meeting and falling in love with people online. Happens all of the time. I met G on a mailing list 12 years ago and we've been together for 8 1/2 years. I'm speaking more to the weird territorial stuff that I've witnessed, especially on E with some women.

    I just started playing the game a few weeks ago and I'm a girl gamer too. I think it's a lot more common now compared to 3 years ago. Haha

    I do agree that alot of girl gamers seem to play support roles.


    Then you have the ones like me...I have a champ, burg, guard...and I mainly play warg and reaver. Love my reaver!

    Nothing more delightful than running into a fully tarred up freep ball with a bubble and just going sick while giggling like a demented school girl in teamspeak. *gazes off into the distance with a dreamy look on her face*

    Re: Girl Gamers

    This thread is making me giggle. Ayrolen, you made a very good point about attention hogs. I've seen that phenomena on other more male-centric games more than here but I am sure it exists here as well. Can we agree not to act like helpless maidens in this game and expect the boys to drag us through the game or do everything for us? We joke about the males being immature, but I've seen plenty of women also reduced to an 8th grade mentality in games online. No doubt it feels good to any of us to get attention, but we have to be very careful about that power.

    I've played another game online in a leadership role and saw some pretty crazy dramas going on when some women played the girl card. Especially the helpless girl card. Gives girl gamers a bad name and really not fair to the rest of players who sometimes need some mentoring as well.

    There are also males pretending to be females in game to get the same kind of attention. Not every guy who plays female characters is in this mode, but if someone refuses to use voice, heavily plays the girl card, and bogarts the guys' attention....it does throw up some red flags, doesn't it? I have seen guys lose focus on the game because they are falling all over themselves to help one of these young ladies, only to find out "she" is actually a guy. That's gotta hurt

    Re: Girl Gamers

    Catanya =>

    I know exactly what you mean about drama around girl players, not that I think you ladies are all like that lol. 1 year ago I got myself into a small casual kinship runned by a woman leader which I became close with at a point we were sending love msg to each other every day. What I found unfortunately after is that she had a real life boyfriend and that she was cheating him not only with me but also 2 other kin members. Thats also when I noticed that she was trying to get drama everytime she could just to get attention, like crying all the time for.... no reason -_- , In the end, it ended up with me saying her goodbye and her saying to her boyfriend that I was arrassing her so he wanted to kill me lol...

    I know I must sound random saying that (especially since I'm a guy posting on a girl topic lol), but my point is we get wierd people everywhere, as much in MMOs as in real life lol. And you may think that these kinds of people give a bad name to their gender , but any intelligent person knows that you can't generalize in these cases. Anyway I don't lol. I met at least 30 women ingame, and only 1 of them was a crazy drama queen lol.

    About the guys playing woman player, I just hope I wont get (or wasn't o_O) dragged by one of them lool, It just make me sick knowing that it can happen ...

    Anyway, it's a really nice thing to know that you ladies are playing, it makes the game more balanced, and I'm sorry to say that, but you'll always get special care, that's called gallantry :P
