If You’re Going to Wave it, At least Know What You’re Talking About

Ya know what, I don’t mind when people brag about their characters, or even when they talk shit. What bothers me is the people who talk shit who really don’t have the faintest idea what they’re actually talking about. Take a look around in game, you know who is talking out their ass? It’s not the number one guild on the server. The number one guild on the server never feels the need to be so blunt because guess what; everyone already knows that they are the number one guild on the server. They don’t have to prove themselves to anyone.

The people who are waving their tiny little epeen’s around are the number two and three guilds on the server. They’re the ones who are in competition with one another and want the whole server to know it. They’re the ones you see in public channels flogging one another for what kill they got first, or how many people they managed to raid with, or who did what drama last.

Again, I don’t mind when people do this. It’s a natural competition and when you organize people into teams (guilds) there are going to be winners and losers.

What I don’t like, is that guy who has never set foot into a raid in his life, has barely been in an instance before, belongs to a guild of one and all of the sudden he’s telling you how to play your class. You know the type, you head to an instance with the much dreaded PUG (pick up group) and there’s that ONE person who thinks they know it all. No mind if they’re wearing gear that’s five years old and can barely swing a sword, they don’t have to even play the same class as you to know how to play it better. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been playing your character since the dawn of time they will always find a way to one up you. It happens. If you’re going to talk shit and act like you are the guru to every game imaginable PLEASE at least know what the hell you’re talking about before you do it. I have a lot more respect for those people. Does it make it right? It doesn’t really matter. You can’t exactly argue with them because at least they know their stuff. It’s not that difficult a concept to grasp. If you don’t actually know what you’re talking about then just take a seat and let the big boys play. No one will think any less of you for it.

  1. Heh. I was just this morning listening to Karen on A View From The Top (Episode 6: http://vagary.tv/viewfromthetop/archives/58 )talking about a very similar comparison between Number 1 Guild and the subsequent guilds on a server. Great minds, and all that…

  2. I listened to that last weekend too haha. I just wanted to take it a little further then what was discussed an add my 2cents.

  3. I didn’t used to say anything. I would just go afk in Orgrimmar between the mailbox, and the auction house.
