#2039588 "Entitled gamers."

Posted Illein on 24 October 2012 - 12:31 PM

Meh, I'll bite.

Most people who have serious entitlement issues are presenting their case in a way that makes it incredibly tiresome for others to take them serious. I stopped counting how often I actually had a reply written out, just to delete it again because it would have definitely led to an infraction - but hell, sometimes you wanna falcon-punch people right off their high horses when they come to the board to tell you:

"How *ing stupid Arena Net is.."
How they "Ruined everything!"
or why they got "Tricked!" "Betrayed!" and "Lied!" to.

Then you browse through their threads and in 99 % of the cases, that person just seems to be an utter moron who got banned for a gazillion other things than what he presents you with and so on and so forth.

I know, I know. Being the critical voice is pretty popular on here, measured by the "+1"s those posts usually are showered with, but in a lot of its cases it really doesn't contribute anything to make the game or its community better. I still remember the discussion about how you'll have to slave for a year to finally "unlock" a bag slot or a character slot or any of those rather popular perks that are connected to the cash shop and guess what? It turned out to be incredibly easy to come by those things at the beginning and the prices, if bought with gold, are STILL very accomodating. Guess who came back to those threads to proclaim their hindsight? Not a single one of those breaking hell loose with their entitlement issues. Not - a - single - one. ;)

Just shows that the ones crying the loudest are usually not the ones who decide over a game's commercial success or not, because they'll be gone any way once something or someone doesn't dance to their tune.

I don't see what good it does to have everyone create a good-bye thread because the waypoint costs are just too high to bear. Come on. Seriously? Get the * over yourself and just hit the road in style - nobody wants to hear your bitch ass whining over complete odds and ends.

So yeah, I am thoroughly annoyed by people who are feeling overly entitled. Not because they question everything - but because they bitch about every minute detail, even if they didn't even understand the matter at hand. That's something you notice across all fields of life in current times that I can't eat enough to get me to puke as much over it as I'd want to. ;)

#1894656 Do you reckon Arenanet has damaged their reputation?

Nope. In two years, people will forget this even existed. There will always be something new to talk about. When the next expansion comes out, people will be saying that GW2 is a godsend and the expansion ruined it. Same with the following expansion. "GW2 and its first expansion were godsends! They should have left it there!"

People complain about nothing. And honestly, if this is the biggest complaint you have in your life, I'll trade lives with you right now. If your biggest complaint is "My fully functional game isn't what I thought it was", then please swap me.
