And he didn’t even wish my wife a happy birthday.
He is back raging against the “WoW Tourists,” only they have now be demoted to “WoW Lemmings.” It seems that they have just destroyed the MMO space in general and his pet game, Warhammer Online, in particular.
Damn those WoW Lemmings for buying nearly one million copies of Warhammer Online!
Damn them for daring to try out a new game!
Damn them for deciding that WoW was more fun and leaving Warhammer!
It is all their fault, not Warhammer’s! Mythic is right, all you WoW lemmings are wrong!
And right about now I would REALLY HATE IT if a bunch of WoW lemmings went over to that post and gave their opinion on it. So don’t.
He also throws in a few direct attacks on me, heretic that I apparently am. For example, he still seems to be especially bitter about me daring to assume that the first group instance in Warhammer Online should be fun and inviting. What a novel concept, I know, completely out of left field, but I have this wacky idea that if you make a game fun at the start, that actually encourages people to keep playing.
Unfortunately, the first group instance on the Order side of Warhammer Online is the Altdorf Sewers. It was crap and I defy anybody to say otherwise.
I am also damned for thinking that spending a Saturday night searching for some actual oRvR action is, you know, not that much fun. He says I have unreasonable expectations in that regard.
Ah well, such is life.
Syncaine seems to be stuck in the first two stages of grieving, denial and anger.
Here is hoping he reaches acceptance some time soon so he can let go of the need to attack others to cover his own grief and get back to writing interesting things about games.
And if this sounds a bit condescending, well… it is. But I have seen so much of that from Syncaine in comments and posts on the topic that I think he can suck it up.
