Things I Hate In FFXI - Vol. 5Honestly, I'm having trouble coming up with stuff I hate about FFXI. I love this freakin' game.
If I didn't, I'd probably have shot myself by now.
Of course, I could just say I hate players (because I do), but that wouldn't be much of an entry.
Things I Hate In FFXI - Vol. 5 You. F--k you.
Still, no matter how good something is, there are those little things that bother you.
It also helps that I manage to find a way to hate everything.
It's a virtue.
Now, if there's one thing I hate about FFXI more than any other (and remember that I am very filled with the hate), it would have to be elitism.
That and low level players.
I've never really understood elitism.
In order to act elite, you should be positive that nobody is better than you.
Being elite suggests you're making fun of someone who is not as good as you. Maybe they have worse gear or maybe they aren't as high in level as you.
But, if you're not the best there is, then you're just pointing out how retarded you are.
If you're on a basketball court, before you start talking smack, you want to make sure you're the best player there.
You'll look absolutely retarded when you start trash talking and then Michael Jordan walks up behind you.
Congratulations. Now, you're not elite and you look like a moron.
Then you end up getting posterized.
Have you ever seen a poster of Michael Jordan dunking? There's always two distinct parts to the picture.
1) Michael Jordan dunking
2) some poor bastard looking retarded
Now, that guy is going to be put up on someone's wall in a moment of epic fail.
I'm sure Hardaway there is a hell of a basketball player. I'm sure he could go on any basketball court and start talking shit.
But he sure as hell looks around to make sure Michael Jordan isn't there first.
You should never act elite unless you are damned sure you are elite.
That's the beauty of this game. No matter who you are or what you've done, you know someone is better than you.
Yes, they're probably Japanese.
Those guys take this shit serious.
I don't really care who you are. I don't care if you own a full Ares set or have every freaking piece of equipment in the game.
Somebody out there is better than you.
There's ALWAYS somebody better than you.
You don't see me running around talking shit to people in game. You won't see me in a party bragging about my gear or my level.
Have you ever seen GM gear? You can't beat that shit.
The other day I won shotted Absolute Virtue.
And yet, I don't act elite.
Because I don't like looking retarded.
Do you like looking retarded?
I didn't think so.
Basically, there's like one guy in the game who can talk shit. One guy who has more gear than anyone else.
And he can't talk shit either because he'll never know.
So, as we've established, anyone who acts elite is automatically retarded.
I am awesome.
