The time you wasted having this chat is far greater than the time he could possibly have wasted in your CoF run. That's the truly amusing part of this thread.
Because I don't mind having a discussion, I do mind people not willing to realize that they shouldn't have joined in the first place so I want to prevent it from happening as much as possible.
So you are promoting gear elitism in game, chew out on a Ranger, no less, for using "ranged" weapons, and expect sympathy from us? Neat.
Maybe I should guest on your server then, just so I can find you and join your PUG. Only to vex you no less, because I run full Clerics. I'll even give you consent to post the screenshots of your lecture to me. That would be a lovely experience!
I wasn't. I am fine with you running your fabulous Cleric set (for the love of god don't enter my PUG if I'm asking for a DPS setup please) and I am fine with Rangers using ranged weapons, however they should read what it says, it's like ignoring a traffic sign and saying "well screw those law abiding elitist I'm just gonna ignore that". Also a ranger doesn't specifically mean ranged weapons, it's a wrong idea that a lot of people seem to have, they're not archers (heck you even start out with axe).
And yes, if I request for a DPS setup and you enter with your Cleric's setup and proceed to ignore my request I will probably lecture you.
I don't see how what I did is a bad thing. I asked for a specific thing that I enjoy, someone else joins and ruins that for me. How is it bad that I lecture that person?
Also to everyone who took the time to reply, don't worry I don't PUG that often
It's just that nearly every time that I DO it results in stuff like this, in the rare case I find competent players they usually end up on my friends list.
