I didn't take "ain't nobody got time for that" seriously, and I'm fairly certain it's just a joke. That quote is a reference to a popular youtube video. What I took as his actual argument was further along in the post where he said he didn't see a reason to get it personally. Ultimately, x-ray would have to clear this up, but I think my conclusion is the most logical, unless x-ray makes a habit of randomly switching vernacular.
Yes, he did respond to you first, but that was clearly not an attack. You, on the other hand, picked apart his posts and made accusations on them, and then he defended himself. I think most unbiased people would read those posts as you going after him. And you did single his posts out, several times, just not the first time. Doesn't seem very "dude-like."
I'm not sure if "You simply can't argue two opposite points just because they both defend the game you love" was directed at me, but that's certainly not my point of view. I don't like the ascended tier, but I was relieved to see that at least the ascended armor was such a low increase that I didn't feel compelled to get it. That's what x-rays posts sounded like too.
The thing is, I agree with a lot of what you say. I almost quit when ascended trinkets were introduced and did quit for a while due to the living story. But your attitude is exhausting. Really, the vitriol and knee-jerk negativity of all these black knights is bordering on pathetic.
The black knights don't seem to realize that they're just as bad as the white knights. Black knights attack them for blindly defending the game while blindly opposing it. Like the gem store fireworks during Halloween, remember how bad that got over a nothing issue? For example:
It and the bank slots are artificial limitations designed to pull money.
I explained this issue in a previous post that you probably didn't read. But basically, yes it is an artificial limit, but it's not necessary to have so many mats. Unless there's 2000 of a mat you need that I don't know about. Candy corn maybe? But seriously, who gave a shit about that mini or the 20 slot box? Either way, that would be a personal issue.
