Out of all the games I'm playing at the moment, only World of Tanks seems to hate casual players. Because if you go into a battle, specially a high tier battle Tier 8 and above, with a casual "oh I'm here for the funs y'all relax" you'll get roflstomped by enemy players and there's also a possibility you'll get "harassed" via private messaging after the battle.
I'd say the reason people are currently unhappy with SWTOR is because there some to be major server side problems. The amount of ability delay and lag is annoying, even with normal ping under 100ms ping. Don't know what's going on but they better get on that.
I wanted to give TSW a spin, mostly because of those Red Templars/Crusders faction, but since it was sub based I ignored it. Don't know if it still is or not.
I agree about GW2, exploration was a pain and it annoyed me to the point where I quit playing before even finishing the story lol. I went back last month to see how's it going, it's still pretty much dead outside starting areas and dungeon entrances.
More and more MMORPGs seem to aim at a more casual group of players. Where the hell are all those MLG PRO hardcore gamers who laughed at newbs and noobs?
An icon for what? How is she better than any other female person? Because she's well known? Because she's influencing younger generations of girls to be nothing but bones and skin? Because she married Brad even though they don't love each other and they both admit that? Is it because she's adopting kids with no families which everyone else can also do if they choose to?
I'm kind of missing the point here about why she's so great as a person.
