Sorry folks this is definetely a rant and a rant I've wanted to say for the last 5 years . Now any mmo you play I'm sure the developers have made plenty of mistakes as they happen in all games but most notably in mmo's . And as a result those games lose subscribers but what would you say if a percentage of the player base plays a part in driving away any potential subscribers due to the following reasons . Drama Politics Religion Elitism Rudeness Immaturity Now I've been in online gaming for almost 10 years and I've played my share of mmo's good ones bad ones and great ones , have had good memories and bad memories all of that basically . But in the last 5 years I've grown tired of people leaving a game they like simply because of the community and I don't blame them one bit . Now granted yes there are companies that think they know what's best for their player base and have completely missed the mark and thus messing up the game designs and sometimes the after effect is a mess exodus . Today I was playing champions online and I love the game and there are many that share the same feelings But when I look at the forums I have seen many quit because of the community itself and the reasons stated are listed above . Now I like online gaming it's why I've been playing for the last almost 10 years but I often wonder if it's worth playing the games I love and have to put up with these things . Games are meant to be fun and an escape from real life but clearly a lot of people will ignore that . I've often stood by a principle in mmo's and that is a mmorpg is good as only by the developers that create it and the community that plays it . Many players when they rage quit will often blame the devs but i bet if a poll was done in mmo's that have bad communities it would reveal otherwise . I'm considering leaving online gaming for good cause while I may have a lot of fun the amount of stuff I have to put up with seems to outweigh that fun .
