    i dont think the wow community as a whole is bad. i think its old and very large and with any community like that there will be a few bad eggs who ruin it for everyone plus its on the internet so its even easier for the thick headed chavs to mouth off.

    What a tool. Oh and yes dallies that entire month it took to get everything to exalted. That is some grind. Shit but this guy played in Vanilla that should be childs play to farming consumables for 5 hours and getting 40 bodies only and the hardest part of early tier raid bosses was not falling asleep or farming rediculous loads of resist sets. What compelling gameplay.
    this so much.

    and i personally feel more involved with the wow community more than ever in this expansion. /shrug

    people have been assholes forever, and it isn't moreso than before either.

    Being a Ret is rare enough, let alone heroic raiding. Downed heroic sha 3 weeks ago and our two ret are both holy now since everyone pretty much raped the ret in dps so gratz on keeping your raid spot. You are wasting your time on most of these replies because to some this game is incredibly difficult or they dont want to look anything up to learn their class. They will have alts, pets they farmed, pvp, etc but cant find 10-15min to learn how to play the spec/class.

    What's ironic is that someone can label someone a asshole but when they are of people of the same mindset and goals they are seen as a really good player and good friend. Blending different personalities and people with much different goals usually doesn't end very well. There is so much information available to get better but people choose to not get better. People that want to push progression will be labeled elitist if they don't act a certain way to sastify a total strangers opinion. Fact is if you play with people that are going after the same goals as you, the community is great and i have to say top progression guilds help each other out with guides and talking between them. We talk about class/spec changes and what we are going to do but we dont talk boss strats but that is the community i know and that I am involved with.

    So if that is elitist I guess i am but these are people that play the game the same as i do with the same goals. That doesnt mix well with someone who wants progression but doesn't want to get better to do it.

    i dont quite see how someone who wants to be a heroic raider and someone who just wants to do lfr would ever conflict with eachother. unless someones mouthing off in chat in which case unless you're wiping or its causing problems its the fault of whoever said something first for causing drama O-O

    The blunt answer is that I enjoy flaunting things they can never have in game. I do it frequently when I'm bored. I'm not proud of it but it does produce laughs. Hell it happened in this thread even as a great example and i didn't even insult the dude on page 2 but he was full of hate and rage.

    Not trying to troll, hell not trying to flame it's just honesty and to each their own.

    The community is identical to any other large game community out there. Mostly negative people post on forums and it goes this way for every large community. Nothing to do with the game at all really. The internet brings out the retard in negative people.

    I think one of the best quotes from random BG was "I'm the only one in this team. With a fucking double digit IQ. You morons." never go full retard when you rage lol.

    Pretty much how it is. So "we" shouldn't feel bad. It's nature, every species has it's nice ones and it's bad ones.

    I doubt WoW's community is worse than communities of SC2, DotA or LoL - aka far more competitive games. In SC2 community you can't even open your mouth unless you're grandmaster or you'll be bashed severely (f.x. a gold player makes a topic, a platinum will come and bash him for being gold, then a master will come and bash both of them. It's hilarious, really). LoL and DotA are infested by wanna-be pro kiddos flaming and trolling. MMORPGs are not competitive games (unless you have an unhealthy obsession with the game or are racing for server/region/world firsts), hence the communities are certainly much better.

    to me, an asshole is someone who goes out of their way to make people feel terrible. i don't conflate that type of behavior with those who are so-called elitist and strive to do the best at the game and expect people they play with to do so as well.

    I would say 80% of the community consists of kids from 13-20 who are sarcastic, narcissistic, know it all, elitist, power hungry, opinionated, manchild, mean hearted people who only care about themselves and not others due to poor family life, poor living conditions, no job, the type of public school that they went to, outcasts, anti-social, out of shape and with no vision of there future to better themselves. Just plain and simple... losers. ( and believe me, I've come across many of them since I started playing in 2007-- even real life ex-friends )

    The other 20% is the exact opposite.

    The community isn't bad and nor should we feel bad,

    the thing that happens here is over generalizing. Yes there is a good portion that is somewhat rotten, but only this makes it to the highlights. Taking my own guild for example, we help eachother out, we take allong puggers all the time (only thing they need is be friendly). Things like that. I am in serveral guilds spread among serveral servers all like this. And I know many other guilds who do the same. There is a good group of friendly and social players, but their light is dimmed out by the rotten bit that spams the forums/chat with swears etc.

    Those people should feel bad, the rest of us. Not so much.

    Like I said, it is generalizing saying that everyone in the community is bad, while only a small bit really is. Negativity just makes it to the daylight earlier.

    Last example: Why would someone make a forum topic about the friendly priest healer who played his hardest but just couldn't pull the hps and say: Well he was a friendly and good person, so no harm! He is awesome!

    People just don't bring the cool people to the light and only the scrub that QQ's and swears is seen. It isn't the community that is bad, it is the observers who are.

    My stance regarding the WoW community mirrors that of a great Abraham Lincoln quote:

    "We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."

    Yes, the WoW community sucks. This isn't exclusive to WoW though, online communities have a tendency of being bad due to the anonimity factor, and it's not a recent thing either. No, you shouldn't feel bad for it, just don't stoop to the jackasses' level.

    This is too true.

    People who on one hand claim to have played in Vanilla and gloat about how great it was, but then on the other hand whine that current WoW with so many dailies is too "grindy" and/or "time-consuming". If someone was capable of doing it in Classic and claims it was awesome back then, then I see no reason to complain about it now. And don't give me that crap that "it was fun back then but dailies are just sooooo dull and boring", because that's complete and utter bullshit, or in other words, lying for the sake of bashing the game now.

    Depends on the people you play with, if i'm in a random dungeon or battleground, I start with saying: Hello!
    And if i get some responses which i don't get at battlegrounds 90% of time, But most times i do at dungeons, i start a chat =), And 50/50 we talk whole dungeon, if not then well then nobody is ever tallking xD
