    I hit 2500 in Arenas 3 times while smoking weed as well as over 50 top 100 rankings for healing in world of logs. I play League of Legends high and have gotten to platinum with little effort. My comparison was actually pretty on point if I say so myself. You compared someone having to take a break to do something you don't like just like I did. So I don't see where your logic comes from. Let me ask you this have you ever smoke it and if so how many times? Because im sick of those who smoke it less then 10 times saying its the devil.

    OTHER. I don't give a fuck and people can do whatever they want. Drugs don't actually make you into a retarded fool, it's a nuanced issue and playing with people who are drunk is a lot more annoying. Which brings up the issue of which drugs you're talking about, they are as varied in effect as they are in selection. Alcohol is a drug that is just given a domestic status in our culture, but it kills and damages more people per year than every illegal drug combined.

    If someone is nodding off on heroin and falling asleep at the keyboard or being a drunken idiot it's annoying, but otherwise people in a better mood doesn't really bother me. You'd be surprised actually by the number of people who don't advertise their vices like an annoying teenage pot head who use illicit substances and actually lead productive lives and successful lives. Cultural taboos let us all feel better about ourselves at the expense of others.

    It's like me casually mentioning I'm gonna take my yacht out this weekend. If all my friends have yachts, they don't take it offensively.
    You can brag to me about your yacht all you want. But of course I expect some pictures and a weekend or two with it.

    You totally missed the point of his comparison.

    He's saying that both require the game to be paused. Both are a hindrance to your continuous flow of gaming time, and can/might/will annoy you.

    It totally is. I just don't like being labeled as a dick by a dick. I've made my point, and will stop now.

    Back in the day I used to refuse to tank without at least a beer in me and a second open on the desk. Nowadays I smoke weed in order to cope with LFR. Other than the occasional tunnel-vision I get, which I also get while sober, I probably pay more attention than when I'm not smoking. Don't know if that's a heightened sense of fear that others will judge me for being baked, or the natural effect of the drug. Also I have a personal vaporizer so I can fire it up if a run starts to turn sour.

    Funny that you should mention this. I've always wondered which of the two it is.

    I think it's a little bit of both.

    Gkick. Now we're both happy.

    Honestly I can tie whether or not I had a subscription to WoW the last couple years to whether or not I had weed. It's had a bigger influence over my sub than any game design.

    Really same bullshit excuses. If it was so dangerous why is more then half of the United States trying to legalize it and over 20 states have. Why has Uruguay completely made it legal. And the fact of the matter is you can't G kick me because I am the guild leader of my own guild with over 300 members that love my personality. I am sick of you condescending assholes. Yes ASSHOLE (infraction imminent but really don't care.) I have traveled all over the country and talked with hundreds of people who have been helped by it. A few that it has saved their lives. And I am anything but egocentric in fact no stoner is because guess what were all about sharing. So please take your useless and un-meanigful comment and leave MMO champion forever.

    Inb4 I get an infraction and the dude I quoted doesnt for being completely off topic and not adding to the discussion at all.

    The fact of the matter is this thread wasn't debating whether its right or wrong to smoke in general but if its ok to do it while playing WoW. And from my experience stoners are generally a lot better at concentrating and staying on task then people who are sober.

    As long as they sit in front of the computer and hit the keyboard like a retard and don't hurt anybody it's fine to me.

    The only high person that has every gotten on my nerves claimed they were on meth, and those people are always annoying.

    I mentioned in my long post about how I saw someone on page two say they would g kick a drug user. I said good g kick me I don't want an intolerable person like that being my Guild Master anyways. I believe thats what he was going for with his post. I also think the egocentric part was when I explained my achievements when being high which was just there to prove the misconception that people who are high suck at WoW. He is just an ASSHOLE again waiting for the infraction that I don't care about.

    It's amazing how, after I gkick a stoner and they're giving me their vitriolic, self-serving spiel on how much of an asshole I'm being (read: butthurt rant), they always mention how drugs calm and relax them. I always find that part a bit lolsy.

    You are arguing with a tool who is baiting your response. If you can play while high, and you aren't flaunting it around like a 12yo who stole his daddy's playboy mag, more power to you. I agree with you, for some people playing high is an enhancement in skill and enjoyment.

    Used to play with a shadowpriest who was a godlike priest (glad/r1 level) when he was stoned and thus he was always stoned when he played.
    One night he decided to try doing cocaine while playing, never had him so hyper on skype, he still played brilliantly though, he used to be playing while in the same room as his dealer, which caused all kinds of funny situations

    Yeah, I got that, I was referring to his edit of your post.

    Anyway, I'm just going to assume that Simulatio is a narrow-minded cunt and will go to bed now.

    Nowhere in there does it disprove how much of an asshole you may or may not be.
