I'm sorry, but anybody who RPs on a non-RP server loses their privilege to complain about people who don't RP on an RP server.That sounded a bit harsh. I'm not anti-RP. I have tried it before, not really my thing. RPers say that grievers clutter chat with things they don't wanna hear. They say that it feels out of place to see non-RP chat.This, essentially, is the same thing, based on those points.

The game is a 'massively multiplayer on-line ROLEPLAYING game'.Not that I ever complained about people not RPing on RP servers. I'd challenge you to look through any post on this site by Matthew Rossi and find one where I said more than "Meh, people don't RP enough on RP servers" and I doubt I even said that. But frankly, if you're playing WoW, you're playing a role playing game. Every server is a role playing server. Some just have specific rules in place for it.

I wasn't talking about you, Matthew. It was just a general notice. Also, Blizzard set aside specific RP realms because they knew that not everyone was into roleplaying. Also, the term RPG generally refers to game mechanics such as gear, and stats.

If you're in a tabletop RPG and you're concentrating on solely gear and stats, you're a bloody munchkin and you can go sit in the damn corner and play Halo. You're ruining the game for everyone else there.I have no patience for jackasses who don't understand the concept of "roleplay" and try to treat every game like an FPS. There's a reason we're not just playing poker.

Tabletop RPGs are, as you mention, RPgs. MMOs, and other electronic RPGs, on the other hand, are more so rpGs. I'm not here saying RP is bad, but I'm saying that there are designated realms for it, and I don't see why anybody would want a lesser RP experience on a normal realm, where RP grievers are from.

Quite frankly, sir, you did say RP was bad. You said that anyone who RP's on a non RP server loses their right to complain about NON RP on an RP server. What the RP servers are for is CONCENTRATED RP. I can't handle that myself, my memory has taken a severe blow from a tragedy in my life, and I can't remember a backstory for the life of me. However, my everyday experiences in life in Azeroth, I do RP. I'm just the Silent one in the back corner. Oh, and my Mount does magically show up, otherwise, I'd be having conversations with him, and my pet. Not anyone else around.
