I guess i'm from a different generation where we played games to have fun. Competing was left for the real world where you got real rewards.
Now everyone just wants their 'i'm a special snowflake' achievment for playing a game, kinda sad. Achievments, now those are just funny,.
This. So much this. I can't stand how competitive the PvE side of MMO's is becoming. I don't care if someone else has done the raid. I don't care who did it first, last, second, etc. I just want it setup in a manner that everyone has a chance to do the bosses, see the stories, get gear for there character - the things that encompass fun for most MMO players.
