WoW: RoleplayingFor my last official night as a WoW player, I thought I would take the final step and create a character on a Roleplaying server.
I might as well have not bothered.
The sum total of my "roleplaying" experience was listening to some whiny little bastard drone on and on in general chat about how all of his friends were at school and how he was bored.
Apparently, he was roleplaying as a retard.
I doubt it was too far of a stretch for him.
Here I was expecting to spawn into a world filled with Shakespearean soliloquies and medieval lore, a world where each character wove a rich tapestry of background story for their character.
Do you know what really sets a nice roleplaying mood?
Some adolescent punk shouting lolz and emotes to the entire area in general chat.
I would have felt right at home if the game was called World of Mallrats.
See what I did there?
It kind of rhymes.
My wit is lost on you people.
And does anyone tell the guy to knock off? Of course not.
Instead, they decide to have a conversation with him.
IN GENERAL CHAT.
Hey, you're from Australia? That must be just south of GOLDSHIRE!
Man, people piss me off.
The funny part is that I was expecting to get pissed off. I assumed that an entire server of people acting in character would get on my nerves pretty quickly.
Ironically, it was the guy not acting in character that pissed me off the most.
That's the kind of retarded yelling you see on regular servers. The entire point of playing on an RP server was so you don't have to listen to that bullshit.
We don't want to hear about your life.
I'm over here trying to set a mood.
An ambiance, if you will.
I'm trying to elevate my experience to new levels of creativity and fictional narrative by immersing myself in a fantasy world and escaping the crude dialogue of the real world.
So shut the F&%@ UP!
