While I agree with the overall point your trying to convey Retsnom. I feel that This:
“the real complaint should be leveled at what vile, ignorant, arrogant, entitled, spoiled, annoying, victims the majority tend to be. It is really a reflection or indictment of how society has turned on it’s head over the last few years caused by indoctrinated political correctness and trickled down into the gamin world. Each wave of noobs have gotten worse and worse.”
is a little overblown. Your linking political correctness with lazy work ethic in gaming?
Whats funny is that I find a lot of “noobs” to be very crass –> spouting trollish garbage in chat. Of course, its most likely a product of being 11 years old --but in my experience the new players that flood the servers during free weekend are not holy avengers of political “correctness.”
I know that this is one of your “triggers” and I dont want to get into an argument where you start grouping my into some “facist liberal left” party (which I dont belong). I just think your mixing some things together that shouldnt be.
In my view, I dont think too much has changed as far as what kind of game appeals to certain individuals. Chivalry seems to appeal towards those that like to immerse themselves in the skill building. We that are here for the long run dont feel it a waste of time to play the same maps over and over, work on skills, get better by spending massive amounts of hours in game.
Just look at the number of hours you’ve put in. Its a staggering amount – especially if you take the average player and do a comparison. We are the uber nerds that have obsessed over chivalry. So, is it fair to expect the majority to have the same motivation when it comes to this game? --> no way. I liken it to Tetris when it came out on the gameboy. A wildly popular game, but the people that stuck with that and played it non stop, dreamed Tetris, became obsessed with trying to beat it --> a rare breed.
Where I do agree is that these new players that have made up there mind to not like the game sure do come to the steam forum and post some very whiny, emotional complaints. Im probably on the older spectrum of the player base – so it boggles my mind why you would do that.
