In a post on the World of Warcraft forums from 'Crawford', a level 85 Warlock, the player discusses the virulent attitudes encountered because of their chosen style of play. While the comments beneath his rant label him a 'troll' and laugh at him for people who won't want to play with him, I feel it justifies my saying that I wholeheartedly share his attitude. As someone who got in prior to BC, I've always wrestled with the "Good" and "Bad" styles of play. Good, as it's defined by other players, because I don't want to play alone. Bad because I want to use my character(s) as I see fit instead of using the latest and greatest builds as prescribed to me by Blizzard.
As the thread has been locked, I wanted to save his rant for posterity and if for no other reason that to know that there is at least one other person out of the 10 million or so playing WoW that I can happily empathize with.
Well Crawford, if you ever happen to find yourself on Alleria, you can be my wingman any damn time.
