    Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me.

    alienate

    /ˈeɪlɪəneɪt/
    verb
    past tense: alienated; past participle: alienated

    1.
    make (someone) feel isolated or estranged. "an urban environment which would alienate its inhabitants"

    synonyms: estrange, turn away, set apart, drive apart, isolate, detach, distance, put at a distance;


    Does anyone feel this way about the WoW community? Every single time I post on the official forums (and occasionally on MMO-C), I get vicious sarcasm and personal attacks.

    I'm nearly at my wit's end. I'm an Internet veteran, and I know what to expect. But I can't recall a single moment of kindness or respect in the last 12 months. Every single one of my friends and my entire guild have all quit WoW, so I've been playing alone since Christmas. I try to meet people through the forums and I get assaulted.

    Does anyone else feel this way at all? Or am I the only one?

    Thank you. It made me smile just knowing people still like the classics.

    I learned that the best defense is to go full offensive.

    Well, maybe not.

    You call yourself an "internet veteran," you quote pink floyd when making thread titles, you copy paste dictionary definitions in your thread and you demand respect from random people on the internet. Maybe you should take off your fedora and try being a respectable person, then you might get some respect from people.

    This is gonna end well...

    I find that if I am nice and help others, I get the same in return typically. At least in
    game. (Though, I only play on two servers, my main being Horde on an Alliance
    dominated server.)

    nah, it's not just you. that was one of the many reasons why i unsubbed last week. gets boring when you're the only one in your group that plays anymore and any time you try to get into a flex / normal raid you're ignored or mocked because you haven't done a full clear outside of lfr due to being solo all the time. brutal circle, just got tired of it.

    You basically described the internet.

    Yes, the WoW community is mostly trash, and full of people overeager to get real-life validation via pixel loots and e-peen waving.

    That's just how it is.

    no we're monsters trying to eat you
    You kill or you die. Or you die and you kill.
    Tell them only that the Lich King is dead and that World of Warcraft died with him.
