Why is it that so many people treat players, who haven't been there as long as they have, as if they were lesser people. "I've been playing this game since launch" Well, that's great and all, but some of these people believe we should treat them as something special. I see an interesting case of that kind of behaviour in a guild I recently got into. The guild was founded like 2 weeks ago, and after 2 weeks some people started to voice their discontent. In the end, a lot of the "founding members" (I mean the guild is 2 weeks old, come on) left and proclaimed that they are going to make their own guild and everybody, who has been there since the beginning is welcome to join - the rest can fuck off. Now nevermind the maturity of those people, but why do so many players feel the longer you've been there, the more you're worth, even when it's only about a timespan of like 2 weeks.
If there was a new guy in my guild, I wouldn't think less of him, just because there are other people in this guild, who have been there for years. And I would never look down upon a player, just because he joined the game 8 months ago where other players joined 8 years ago.
And you see it in a lot of these meme folks with stuff like "If you know this, you're cool" "If you know this your childhood was great". As if growing up in the 80s or 90s somehow makes you a better person.
Why is that.
