I'm a Sith fan for a reason, why deny myself the opportunity to get ahead just because its not moral? Morals have nothing to do with games and they shouldn't be something to hold back your progression.
You are a bad person and should be ashamed. Morals are always relevant, whether its "just a game" or not.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

It's not that they think it's a bad thing. They're simply shocked.

Sincerely glad you're here ladies.

Because as in r/l you provide a civilizing influence.

Please don't ever let the emotional and/or chronological 'little boys' depress or discourage you. If you rise to their bait, you're giving them just what they want. Trust me, blocking/ignoring them and moving on is the best answer. Once again welcome. And... Party On!

My smile is just skin deep
If you could see inside, I'm crying
Won't you join me for a weep

^ this. I met my wife 7 years ago on Runescape. Strange thing was at the time I played a Female character because I use to mine rune ore in the wild back when it was pvp and I'd get attacked maybe only 1/4 the amount I did before I changed my gender. Anyways we play almost every game together and I can honestly say she can probably beat me out on any mmo in pvp and I've watched her play before she always comes first in every wz match ive ever seen her go in and Id be like 4th or some s*** like that. Lol but she's pro at pretty much any computer game. Funny to hear people rage on team fortress 2 mic when we constant run supercharged medic heavy on each other and can clear a command point ( not so sure why people rage in that game anyways, you die you respawn, team loses so what not like you get anything from it to where losing should piss you off lol.). Any ways the strangest thing is though you get her on a console and she ha the hardest time playing games on it. I remember a couple years back we got gta 4 on xbox and she couldn't turn a corner on any vehicle for the life of her. She'd slide out and crash every time she tried to turn was pretty funny for me to watched but man was she getting pissed. Especially in missions where you have chase someone down. But funny thing she or the gta bundle in steam about a month ago which had all gta games and dlcs up to 4 for like 12$ or something awesomely priced, and she was turning near flawless on the computer . Any ways I got side tracked. I met her on rs when I was 17 she was 16. I lived in California and she lived in Wisconsin. We talked on the phone every day. When I was 20 I moved to Wisconsin and we got married last year in April. I can honestly say I couldn't be any happier.

Lady Combat players put a lot of commitment into there gaming, and there not driven by the insane urge to be a level whore, or sometimes let of an PvP enemy if its obvious, she will win any confrontation.

I played with a husband and wife team in EAsys battlefield maps, and his wife , was ace with grenade use, she was no slouch, and she knocked me out a few times I can tell you, I had great respect for this lady, as she was very hard to bring down.

On the subject of ladies in Combat. In the virtual world of Second life lies many combat community's. I was in an urban ghetto type combat land. Me and a dutch lady made a faction named "The Widow makers" based on types of spiders. Although we co lead it, and it was my original idea, her leadership was as strict as any male leader.
When I had to leave it because of health issues, she took on the whole family, and it lasted 18 months before it ran its course. 18 months holding a faction together in The fast moving world of SL was no mean feat, and I was proud to serve with her for the time I was still able to support her until RL intervened.

My gender is neither female or male, I am an in- betweener, hence , because Mila from Res Evil is so hawt

I decided to name my characters after some of Alices names or films. In my guild, my Avatar picture is "The red Queen", and that's what Im known as, on our website.

Long live the republic & Girl power

Then they helped me finish the rest of the quests in the zone even though they didn't need them--all because they thought I was a girl.
Whenever there is a potential female gamer around, a legion of mouthbreathers climb out of the woodwork.

Been gaming for 15 years and only met one girl gamer in all that time. Her and boyfriend played Wow together. Most of the female characters you see ingame are played by guys. And they will say they are female for real to get free stuff from other players. The OP might be a guy looking for stuff. Only way to tell is maybe with teamspeak.
