Real old-schoolers have been on Akama since the server launched.

There doesn't seem to be too many of us left, though.

I think the main problem is the fact there are so many people that would rather talk smack about someone on the server than help that person out, and try to find some way to disgrace a "bad" player, rather than see if they can help them. So, this leads to people thinking, "well, they're gonna !@#$ me over anyway, so i may as well %^-* them right back", and the circle of screw overs keeps going round and round. If someone is really so awsome at this game, why do they feel the need to trash those that are beneath them, and then, complain about people not knowing how to play, and why the player base of the server is crap? I won't say top players NEED to sit and help every single person, or that we all need to sit around a campfire and sing kum by yah, but the main thing is, the "he said/she said" crap is a big factor, and it really needs to stop.

Haven't heard about you camping Syl. So I assume it was another one of your 10v1s you run after doing. Grats on that bro. I see you're getting close to 1550 in 2s again. Are you excited?

I apologize for using too many words, I know you get confused easily. I'm sorry bro.

I've always helped people who have whispered/talked to me in-game. I never felt the need to disrespect someone I don't know over the internet. It's how I carry myself in life and how I carry myself in-game.

Now the fact that many players are bad is fully 100% their fault. There is no reason they don't have access to the same information I do. If I can find the answer for them on a forum within 2 minutes, that means they don't care enough. They just want handouts, without putting in work.

I mean I can use you for example Solar, you're under hit cap, when common knowledge dictates that it is 8%. If you've ever played this game at all, that is the only thing anyone ever tells you to cap first. Hunter FAQ on ElitistJerks, 7th Question already answers that for you.

http://elitistjerks.com/f74/t110306-hunter_faq_cataclysm_edition_read_before_asking_questions/

If people even put in remotely a little effort, maybe we wouldn't all be such jerks. :\

The bottom line is, it's a game. Out of 9 million players, there are people that play it without googling optimal setups for their character, they play it how they want to play it. Nobody deserves to be disrespected or trolled for that (unfortunately, we all know trolling occurs frequently, and is often toward legitimate help seekers, and this is why features like an ignore list and customer service are available).

And if someone is looking for a "handout", well that person needs to be given advice on how to improve themselves, and if they don't take it, just drop the conversation/decline the application, or whatever the case may be.

Like I said, there are people that take pleasure in disrespecting others if it makes them or their friends feel better or stronger about themselves,or if they think something is "funny". It's far too common and very unnecessary.

The fact is, it is funny to troll people if you do it right. If someone asks you what is hit cap for melee and you just tell them 8%, that's boring. What if you be a *#@@ and you tell them 22% and they spend money on 40 hit gems, reforging, etc. That's funny because they're too lazy to type in to google, "what is hit cap for melee?" This game is not hard to figure out, so I'm not going to help someone who isn't willing to help themselves.

Do you often take pixels too seriously, Hatredd? I feel that you may lead the fascinating life here.

How is griefing not funny? It's like those !@#$% enlarging pills. Do you feel sorry for someone who got caught up in that scam? I surely don't. They deserved it for being that ignorant.

Taking personal enjoyment at someone else's expense is never funny, nor does someone deserve it for being "ignorant", when more often than not (especially in the case of you purposely telling someone the opposite of the right answer for enjoyment) they do not deserve it.

Unless of course that person wants to be laughed at, such as clowns. Gotta love them clowns.

If they are doing nothing to help themselves, they don't deserve to be helped. So, in my eyes, they do deserve it.

That's pretty sad, but if that's how you are, not much anyone can do to help you.

The best thing about that, is I don't need any help.
