RP realms get special treatment?

Don't worry guys, Lethalvenom is "omniscient" meaning "all-knowing". We are good now. Thank goodness we have a god in our midst.

oh and torumin, this is warlock is ôblivion!

TL:DR - Role-Playing realms should not be around because it only manifest a convention for freaks and weirdo's.


This particular toon spent all of WotLK on the RP realm Blackwater Raiders (under the name Kalia, still have my lvl 10 there with the name). A friend wanted to level new alts together, we had no interest in role-playing and she just randomly picked the realm as the name Blackwater Raiders sounded appealing. It was essentially like any other pve realm with the addition of an increased chance to meet other players interested in role-playing.

Only once did I see or hear about a forced name change (a shaman named Feelmyudderz). No one would have cared if your character was named Lethalvenom unless you went out of your way to act like a complete jerk or harass other players. Unless you were in an RP guild, hung out in Goldshire or Silvermoon you would have been hard pressed to find players role-playing. Met some really great pve and pvp players while I was there that had no interest in role-playing. Also met a few really skilled players that were very much into role-playing within their own guild and friends. In fact the last really good pve guild through ICC on that realm was run by few rank 1 pvp players. Seeing Brutal and Vengeful Gladiators on an RP realm doesn't exactly fit in with your quote listed above.

Put down the thesaurus and don't try to impress ppl with big words. Focus more on playing the game for yourself instead of worrying about what's happening on some far off realm. Does it really matter or affect you in any way? Try logging in with the focus of "what can I accomplish today as a player?" not "I wonder what [insert player, guild or realm name] is doing?". It's a waste of time and time is one thing in life you can never reclaim.

Live and let live.

Well I'm not going to argue with you Keari because 1. You seem to know what you are talking about 2. You're that awesome =P. (I can relate, but i will say this. Silvermoon wouldn't press on me, i have an alt there and the people are amazing and far better than Duskwood.)

The rest of you are just turning this thread into a circle-jerk and have run the thread into the ground. You can keep pettifogging if that makes you happy, but i am done here. I'll just remember next time to watch out for illiterate people.

I'm never going to be "awesome" no matter how hard I try, I have severe OCD and a job that has allowed me to tote an outdated hard drive to work so I can queue for BGs while waiting for client proof approvals. Every and any PVE achievement can be easily cross-realmed nowadays. The only RP realm I've ever played on was the aforementioned BWR and I would never create a toon on an RP realm again. While I met some really great players there, I'm personally not into RP and recruiting for PVE raid content was abysmal. I left bcs it was located on a PST data center where I normally sat at 185-ish ms and on Duskwood I'm at 15 ms (seeing as how it's an NY data center and I reside in the city of cheese steaks, Brotherly Love and the Liberty Bell [one steak wit wiz plz @ Pat's]).

<Synapse> used to be named <Silhouette> when we were on BWR. We looked at 17 different realms and when we asked in trade Horde-side "how is this realm for PVE progression?" the guild <Anomaly> was the first and only to give us an honest answer. Usually we received responses like "go away" or "dis realm is teh sucks"'. I believe it was Disturbia (sp?) that said "this server isn't the best but it isn't the worst either. It's like a small family where everyone looks out for each other." Times may have changed but that was the selling point for the majority of my friends transferring to Duskwood. With cross realm queuing and the new shared realm areas, to me a realm is merely an AH and a place you log out at night. With all that said, I think players that are totally into RP should have their own choice of realms just as much as PVP players, that could care less about killing dragons, should be able to choose PVP centric realms. To each their own and we all pay the same monthly fee.

TL:DR - Role-Playing realms should not be around because it only manifest a convention for freaks and weirdo's. But am i the only one who did not know that Blizzard actually enforces rules that do not relate to Role-Playing on that specified realms? The above comment is mine, please tell me if i am mal-informed in any area.


So basically what your saying is to take away what others have fun doing? That sounds a little biased much?

We seem to be living the same lives, also we are probably close neighbors :P I'm in Philly every weekend around the Fishtown area, usually hang out down in Northern Liberties as well. Lots of friends out there, some in some top end guilds. Warcraft BBQ imo :P

I'm glad that disturbia and our guild had a hand in bringing a fine guild over. Makes my heart warm!

Hey Keari, it's me Disturbia. I definitely remember that and I'm glad you remember me :). It honestly makes me sad to read those words I said back at the tail end of Wrath, because it only took one expansion to change Duskwood (in my eyes). Though it will always be my first home, I was just saddened by how many of my Duskwood "family members" had moved on. That's why I chose to strike out on a new server - to see if the grass really was greener on the other side. At my heart, though, I'm still just a small town girl ;).

Also, Lethalvenom, I'm saying this with complete sincerity. I can't read what you write because it's impossible to decipher the meaning behind your posts. You pepper them with "big" words, sure. However, it's not because we're illiterate that we don't understand you. Rather, it's that the words you choose are flat out misused. I'm sorry if you feel that this is an attack on you, but I assure you it's not. Perhaps my friends aren't very polite in getting their point across (and no one ever pegged a few of these suckers as the most polite in the bunch lol) , but everyone's telling you the same thing.

Whoa Killer Tofu! Didn't know anyone was still in that guild on Duskwood to invite you.

To be fair, antimatter only blows up normal matter, maybe it's time you joined the anti side?

PS I LOVE YOU SERALIN
(And how you always managed to forget what Aura Mastery is... and all your other CDs... and sometimes normal spells)
