    Question A plague in Arkenstone

    Elitism and his many manifestations :

    A growing pest is slowly making it's way out of the shadows and back to the everyday interactions in our server. i may be misguided , but my observations make this statement somewhat true. it seems to me that this elitism find it's peak in the summer time , when many come back and many others have grind every bit of the last released content. its not exclusive to freep side. as the meaning of the word clearly states , some players here and there make it a habit voluntary or involuntary, intentional or unintentional of making fun , criticizing , trashing and categorizing other players. Why do they belief they "have the power " to do such things ??? From my own lived experiences in-game this have come from members of renowned Kins or tribes , high rank freep or creep, not having perfect English grammar , or random annon players in glff. This is not intended to be a complete list of sources or generic generalizations. The purpose of this post is to make everyone (including me ) reflect about our attitudes towards other players , that are not just toons but persons who feel. With such little actions we can be headed to a more friendly general attitude and a stronger sense of server community.

    I'm wounded you believe I was trolling. I was only asking a legitimate question.

    If I was truly trolling, I might have left this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb2Ct3yyB4g and walked away




    Aye, yes, escape artist, indeed! My job is, after all, to annoy the food with constant "@$%^! I almost had that **** warg!" moments

    if you want to correct what you perceived as elitist attitude, then what you do is report and ignore them, you certainly don't give these self proclaimed elitists the time and a special place in this site to boost their elitism further, that is simply stupid

    At least for me the elitist behavior is not because i think i'm better than all of you (which i am). But because of most people's complete unwillingness to improve themselves or take any form of constructive criticism. Leading to me simply not inviting people to group.

    agreed with your statement ..many(had happend to me ) can take criticism at the moment when its been given with a defensive defensive and negative attitude ..then after ragging some realize others are right , and improve and find ways to work deficiencies around .... someone had to called me a by stander for me to try new ways , get out of confort zone and try new things with my mini, that still have looot more to learn

    You realize everyone is better than you, right? You're just some silly noob who has never played in the moors before. :P
    Seriously though - I don't think you'd ever enjoy the kind of criticism you sometimes give out. Although, some people in the moors never listen to anyone and that can be really annoying when you constantly get rolled by some creeps.

    Ah well, I figure Helm's Deep will be out soon and the first ones out in the moors will be the more experienced players and that will hopefully make for some good pvmp again.
