What bothers me in the RP community, is how some roleplayers are so obssessed with RP on their realm, that they frequently attack and flame people who are semi/not interested in roleplaying. There are many "RP elitists" on my realm, that make a huge deal out of targeting individuals and guilds, that might not exactly be adhering 100% to (both official and unofficial) RP policies. The amount of bitching and whining from these "RP elitists" is so often, I am constantly reminded why so many "anti-RP" people make fun of/attack roleplaying elements. I swear, some people play this game only to lash out at others. And reporting for bad names is something I frequently observe in the RP communities I interact with. Their common sense is usually shrouded by their need to reach "RP-Nirvana", they will report anyone with a name that might just resemble a word./rant off

What's the point of playing on a RP server if you aren't going to go all out RP?

In WoW US, there are around 200 non-RP realms, and 22 RP realms...It annoys me to always hear about people complaining about roleplayers trying to preserve the RP atmosphere on their realms. (With Blizzard unwilling to actively enforce the RP rules, it falls to the RPers ourselves to do it.)If you don't RP, go roll on any of the non-RP servers! Just don't jump around an RP realm with a silly name trying to spoil other people's fun and then whine about "you're a bunch of elitist jerks :("

"What bothers me in the RP community, is how some roleplayers are so obssessed with RP on their realm, that they frequently attack and flame people who are semi/not interested in roleplaying."If it bothers you so much, Normal servers are that way --->Join Happymeal, Crazyfrog and Donkeykong there. The RP-realms are the only Haven for the RP:ers. They don't try and infest the Normal or PvP servers with their RP. All they ask is that the lollertrons from the Normal and PvP realms not to infest their realms in return. If you don't want to PvP, stay away from the PvP servers. If you don't want to RP, stay away from the RP realms. Easy. And it's not to much to ask. Questions? http://wow-europe.com/en/policy/roleplaying.html

Milktub:Some people enjoy playing the game as well, you know.Lohrr:You honestly believe that many people are interested in replaying the entire game, just because their *server* isn't the best suited for their style of play? Get real.I haven't heard of any people wanting to ruin any RP atmosphere on my server, so I have no idea where that came from.I am a role player as well, so your rude comments don't serve any purpose. My rant goes specifically at some people that seem to care so much about roleplaying, that they feel the need to attack those that don't.

I've never rped in WoW. HI had a lot of fun for a little while in Ultima Online roleplaying, but my experience with THAT rp community was that there were tons of factions arguing over what the "proper" way to rp was (Can pirates wear chain mail? That bartender isn't a real rper because he uses a heavy crossbow when hunting!!)In the end, it was the rp nazis that used roleplaying as some kind of status game that drove me away- not because I had fallen victim to their fire, but because I felt like I was hanging out with a bunch of spiteful jerks that refused to cut well-intentioned newbies any slack.Maybe things have changed, but this addon makes me think they haven't.Glad to be on a pve server =).
