Gotta agree with Matt on this one...whether it's a game or work, reward should be proportionate to effort. for one thing, the game IS competitive to a lot of people. but it doesn't logically follow that a player's mindset should set the standards of who gets what. if that was the case, gear itself would become meaningless, as it is well on its way to becoming. "oh, you just picked up tarecgosa's rest after months of grinding? neat! maybe i'll knock it out from start to finish this weekend. turning into a dragon would is SO COOL, amirite?! LOL!"for example, I see plenty of people playing pickup football games at the park on the weekends...but noone is offering them multi million dollar contracts just because they decide to play. By your line of reasoning, they are just playing to have fun and should be entitled to the same reward as a professional football player who puts in way more blood, sweat, and tears to ultimately do the same thing - play a fun football game. both people find it to be a fun game, but you won't find anyone argue that the weekend pickup gamers deserve just as much money as the professionals. it's that kind of backwards logic that exemplifies the entitled mindset of players today, and it's a damned shame.
