Apparently, must be a wow thing. Luckily humour is subjective or I might think you were trying to insult me ^^

It's probably coincidence.
I would love to be a PC Jawa. As long as my character spoke in Jawanese (??) all the time.
Shadowlands Server. Mellow Company guild.
City of Heroes was my only other MMO. RIP, thanks to corporate stupidity.
Maybe we can build a COMMUNITY on the forums and in the game.

It's actually not pointless. The biggest problem with troll threads is they sometimes get too much attention, and it starts to look like an actual issue to the community. Clearly, men playing female toons is not an issue--someone was just trying to stir the pot. Trolling the troll is like stirring the pot in the opposite direction--it uses humor to negate the false importance created by the original troll thread.

Is that clearer? These are some advanced trolling tactics, but try to follow along and you'll eventually catch on.

well, I get how it works, but I think it seems pointless to me because it doesn't affect me in that way. But I see your point and that it might affect most people, thereby giving it meaning. I will certainly admit that I consider myself a bit of an eccentric and not representative of what is considered "normal"

The other thread starts like this:

Why?

Sure the view of the back is nicer, but how can you relate?


That is EXACTLY the same text, just the title is different.
The color's different, too.

I don't get it when people play as humans in an MMO.... After all you see humans everyday.

PS. there have only been two Star Wars MMO's so the not getting it isn't huge, it's not like not getting why people play as elves or dwarfs.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

You made me laugh out loud. Good one.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix
