Feb 18th 2009 1:55PM Agreed! I don't mind if someone's asking for help if they are a) polite, and b) at least make the effort to communicate clearly. Most times I can tell the difference between someone who's just too damn lazy to type (which I can't stand-sorry, l337speak is NOT a language, it's a joke to be laughed at) and someone who just honestly misspelled a word.
That being said, what really grinds my gears is when I decline to help someone (reason is irrelevant as long as I do it politely, since it is my time they're asking for and my choice to help or not)-or, God forbid, I don't know the answer to their question-and they get upset.
That, and random strangers who beg for gold. O(>
Feb 9th 2009 2:38PM Two things:
1) Even though I'm Alliance all the way and the Horde can go stick it, I still find that hilarious. And no, not just because it's a Gnome DK (although that does make it even funnier).
2) THAT is one of the best reasons ever to roll on a PvE server.
Jul 31st 2008 10:18AM Yes, I believe it’s possible to truly know someone without meeting them in person (although it’s admittedly rare).One of my best and closest friends is someone I met in Terokkar about seven months ago. I was working on a quest, and noticed another player close by killing the same mobs, so I whispered her and we grouped up. That night we both remarked that we had a great time, so we added each other to our Friends List. Unlike most times where that has happened to me (usually I would wind up almost never grouping or talking to someone after that first time), it led to another night of questing together, and another, and another…and now we consider each other best friends, even though we haven’t yet met in real life; even if we were forced to stop playing WoW (perish the thought!) we would still keep in touch with each other.
As far as my guild goes, we just have a really great bunch of people-many of them have gotten together on several occasions (although I haven’t been fortunate enough to be there for those…yet), and there are no truly bad eggs in my opinion-we joke around, sure, but we know when to draw the line. A very large part of the reason I enjoy WoW as much as I do is because of people like them.
