Jan 8th 2012 12:14PM I already had my rant on mediocrity and that went over so well ;) I think you did a very polite summary that in WoW, you're not playing just for yourself, you're playing for other people. And if you can't be bothered to try to play at your best, not only are you selling yourself short, but you're affecting the progression of your fellow group mates and raid team members.
As enrages grow ever tighter and as healing becomes even more focused on heroic modes, the more you can do to ease the load of your team, the better a team player you become and the stronger a player a player you turn into.
I hate mediocrity. With a passion. Either play your best, or don't waste my time. And if you are wasting my time, I'm not gonna sugarcoat it when I call you out....
Jan 8th 2012 12:03PM I'm female and the majority of the characters I play full time are male. They all have some form of RP backstory and I find it easier to maintain my sarcastic attitude with a male toon than a female.
My challenge came when my husband pointed out that female belves are wrong footed. Look at a fem belf hunter or a fem belf paladin. They have their weight on the wrong foot and would fall over IRL if they tried to attack in that position. It bugged me so much that I switched to male toons for most of my melee.
Also, if you spent an entire expac watching your fem belf Paladin polish an invisible ball to heal, you'd switch to male casters too...
My husband plays mostly female toons, so we balance each other out.
My characters (yes, I have some duplicate classes)
Paladin: Male (Cata raiding toon) and Female (Wrath raiding toon) belf
DK: Male and Female belf
Priest: Male belf
Warlock: Male belf
Druid: Female tauren & Female night elf
Hunter: Female belf
Mage: Female belf
Rogue: Male belf
Shaman: Female orc and Female draenei
Warrior: Female belf
The priest, paladin, and DK are my mains Horde side. the draenei shaman is my main on the Alliance.
Sorta surprised to see that I have 9 fem toons...
