Elves are horribly perfect creatures in the Tolkien universe...

Elves were not even close to perfect. They shed more of their own blood than any other race over some silly stones one of them made. They routinely slaughtered dwarves and even humans in conquest during the 1st and 2nd age. They were incredibly cruel and completely indifferent to the sufferings of men at the end of the 3rd age. They sent some small force as a show, but most were creeping out the back door on boats, hell with Middle Earth, off to paradise!!!!

Why am I being a lore monger about Tolkien on a GW2 board? I have no clue. Knee jerk reflex. Sorry...

I'm totally ignoring all those halloween "events", I'm not 10 years old anymore. WTB some real new content.

Yet you are still playing a game, calling yourself or others childish because they take part in new content is just childish itself. There is also new content besides just the halloween stuff. Tho I'm sure all of you will do the new dungeon when it's introduced.

#2039588 "Entitled gamers."

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. ;)

If you think there is an easy solution that no developer has thought of after all this time you are grossly underestimating the problem.
