    WARNING!!!! This is a rant!

    Ok, I've been sifting through the World of Warcraft boards from time to time to find a few good ideas, character build, and player strategies. Many times I find these things, but first I have to sift through the pile of crap left there by fanboys of other RPG's, most of them having never seen an MMO, or fanboys of Warcraft and Diablo who get off on fan pictures of Kerrigan getting it on with Jaina Proudmore and the Amazon. Here's the typical thread, only more readable. Keep in mind that their screen names are also their character names, not their account names. You pick the character to post as when you log in and can switch later.

    Arcturus(me):

    Nobody cares. There's about a billion other posts just like this one and the Blizzard reps are trying to consolidate them into one big thread. Not only that, but there's something that post needs. Well, there's a lot of things. Let's start with lowercase letters. A couple of periods would be nice, but they need to be spread out, unlike the exclamation marks on this page. Now, there should also be a point with a few specifics to back it up. You know, it would probably be better to just let this thread die and try again.

    I like the threads that actually mean something, but GEEZ, this is rediculous. What's worse is that here's what the actual chat logs look like in a ROLE-PLAYING SERVER.

    Ilikeham: can ne1 help me with defias quest
    RoXoRzzzz: haha n00b. their's abotu 5000 defias qusts and there all so ez.
    Lehan (me): (ooc-guys, this is an RP server, so let's try to stay in character) Which quest have you been sent on, good sir? I might be able to assist you in ridding these lands of that foul menace.
    RoXoRzzz: stfu n00b. nobody cares.
    Ilikeham: is teh 1 n elwyn forest
    RoXoRzzz: hahahahahaha. cud u b ne more n00bish.
    Lehan: (ooc-seriously, guys. type like human beings and act like your characters) There are many foul Defias in these woods. Could you be a little more specific?
    RoXoRzzz: OMG, u r suck a LUSER.
    To RoXoRzzz: ooc-stop it with that attitude and get into character or I will report you. I should do it anyway with that name of yours, but I'll give you a second chance.
    [whisper] from RoXoRzzz: stop being suck a n00b, you !@#. go ahead adn report me, but if u do, ill !@#$%^& kill u.
    /ignore RoXoRzzz
    Ilikeham: its teh 1 were u hav 2 xplor jasperloeb mien.
    Lehan: Well, any guard worth his salt would have given you directions. Didn't you write it down in your journal? (ooc-PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE at least TRY to stay in character and type like you actually know English)
    Ilikeham: wut do u mean?
    Lehan: ooc-"Didn't you write it down?" is RP for "it should say so in your quest log." The hotkey's 'L' by default.
    Ilikeham: but i dont no were teh mine is
    Ilikeham: STFU. IM NO A N00B.
    Lehan: Just follow the directions. It's actually pretty hard to miss. (ooc-seriously dude, get in character and look at the directions. it's really very easy)
    Ilikeham: cud u jus sho mee?
    Lehan: I'm afraid not. I have other important business to attend to. (ooc-that's it! now i know you're just lazy. you don't want hints, you want to be led around by the hand. both of you, consider yourselves reported.)
    /ignore Ilikeham

    Sure, they get banned when I report them, but then even MORE show up to take their places. HELP! I'm losing faith in humanity.

    Oh, it can be great fun for the longest time, but the forums suck and every once in a while an idiot will ruin your day.

    Might I suggest Everquest 2? Hehe. Seriously though.

    Generally speaking there is mature player base, and there are two role-playing servers.

    Not into rp-ing myself, but most people I find are pretty considerate and helpful on my non-rp server.

    A friend of mine told me that Halo2 was rife with cheating. Invicibility codes and all sorts of other exploits. I haven't played it in awhile myself.

    Actually, I just try to avoid much of the forums and I really duck the idiots in the game. However, I try to be nice and considerate like most of the people on DAOC in the vague hope that it's contagious.
