World of Warcraft: "General Whining"
Posted: Wednesday January 5th, 2005 by

There was some talk in guild chat tonight about how whining was running rampant in General Chat and had even started to rear it's ugly little head in the Trade Channel.

So the conversation you see in Today's Comic actually took place. The two folks depicted are Akashin (the undead chick) and Razorback (the Troll guy).

The idea behind what Akashin was saying was that she wanted to be able to just turn it off so she wouldn't have to see it any more. And, I agree with that sentiment whole heartedly. Every little thing in game becomes a petty little bickering point. Every minor incongruity (with what they feel is correct) becomes a major obstacle that often ends in juvenile demands that Blizzard change the game or they'll **gasps** find another game to play.

You know what... leave. More power to you. If you find another game where your every whim is catered to and you never meet a challenge that doesn't fit within your grand scheme for MMO Game design, excellent. We wish you all the best of luck with your new piece of magic.

There are a great many times when I just want to lash out verbally and explain to people why their reasoning is faulty. But, I've been playing MMOGs for a long time now, and I know damn well it'll does nothing but send them into a tissy that strays so far from logic it makes my brain hurt. So, nowadays, I leave them to their ignorance.

Now, I'll admit, because of my position in the community, I've learned to look at things from both the gamer and the designer perspective. I wasn't like that when I first started playing. Nope. I learned it over time. I just wish I could impart my newfound "wisdom" without it being spit back at me riddled with foolish gibbering.

Ah well, there have to be "cons" to offset the "pros" of playing a game with thousands of other chucklenuts all seeking god-mode, right?
