So before likely I retire this forum account, I thought I'd make one last post. Because of my unfortunate addiction to posting, as well as my unfortunate addiction to trying to help other PvPers see what should be obvious, I'll make a last ditch effort to put an end to the nonsense that has spread across our once-glorious and hilarious Monster Play forums.
As many of you I am sure with agree, this game has declined of late. Majorly. There are some of us here that are here soley for the PvP (me for instance.) Now we're probably insane (or masochists, or is that the same thing?) for sticking around to PvP here of all places.
I mean most of us agree: the PvP is bad. However, there is one thing that a lot of you don't understand.
No matter how many promises are made: things are unlikely to get better (or much better). Thread's are popping up daily now, asking, pleading, begging for Turbine to wake up, and finally throw us PvPers a bone. Some believe that bone is coming with the new Osgiliath map, that featured new promises of better PvP to come
Sound familiar? It should. It's the same old story, with the same old promises. Now this isn't to say that the next update won't actually be decent; there's no way of knowing that for sure. But, don't count on it. Don't peg your hopes and dreams for this game on their promises, which have tended to be empty for some years now.
Secondly, the whole concept of sides needs to stop. What is this, 2011? There are no sides. We're all on the same side. We're all PvPers, and are either part of the problem, or part of the solution. Those bad players you think only reside on Freepside? They probably play Creeps too and do the same things they complain about Creeps doing. Those skillless zerglings you think play Creepside? They probably play Freeps too, and carry out acts of hyprocrisy with anonymity on that side as well. You want to know another reason why PvP in this game sucks? The community. The community, and especially the PvP one has degraded so far from what it used to be it's somewhat depressing, but mostly ridiculous.
Thirdly and finally, the complaining is foolish. There are complaint threads everywhere, and more pop up daily. These threads do nothing but state the obvious and spread the foolishness...the cancer that has been growing on these forums for years. Trolliing (and bad trolling too, get it together you sluggards), flame wars, and even #### like inter-server disputes have leaked out here, spreading the disease across these once beautiful forums.
If you can't find a way to enjoy this game, then you shouldn't be here. There's the door --------->. Get out. Complaining won't change anything. Trust me. Most of us have tried a failed a thousand times over. It doesn't work. If you're only here because the great name of The Lord of the Rings is stamped all over this poser of a game, then you should leave. Find something to play for, or stop playing. Simple as that.
Tl;dr: Get it together maggots.
