Don’t Be Offended for Me

All right, so I’m mostly going to put out there what my opinions are on certain subjects right now. I am taking what’s probably a more controversial standpoint on this, but a discussion via Twitter is going to be anything but helpful. That said, I am going to respect people’s opinions, whether they are the same as mine, or they are different. If you cannot manage to read this post without looking at things from a rational standpoint, and you cannot respond as an adult, I would ask that you do not respond to begin with.

I don’t want to make this post a diatribe about how other people are wrong. But I have been called selfish, I have been told I don’t know what I’m talking about, and I’ve been linked this image, as if it’s supposed to show how my opinion is “wrong.” What I will say is that I hate political correctness. And yes, I do think a large majority of people need to get over themselves and get a thicker skin. However, there are going to be people that use words offensively, and there are going to be times where context shows that the offense is very definitely meant to hurt someone emotionally. What I want to dispel is this apparent belief that I can’t see that.

I do want to warn you there is a lot of stream of consciousness in here. But if you will read the entire post before scrolling down to the “Leave Comment” box, I would be greatly appreciative of this.

Handling Guild Drama

So, these last couple months have been just loads of stress outside of gaming, but also just some grand annoyances while in gaming, as well.  A lot of it relates to some guild drama in both Rift and WoW.  Quite frankly, I’m sick of it.  The backbiting, the name-calling, the downright immaturity of it all.  It would be one thing if people that are adults would take the time to act like the adults they are.  Personally, I try to avoid conflict, and prefer to have civil discussion, but even I am human and have had my part in these issues.  I’m sure as shit not infallible.

Bitch Slap: Someone's going to get it.

That said, guild drama sucks, especially when it leads to people either quitting or getting kick from a guild.  I mean, I get that there are going to be personality conflicts and whatnot, but when there are people that are supposed to be the ones you look up to and respect looking down on, condescending to, or outright being hateful toward other members of the guild, how is that supposed to reflect on the guild to new guild members?  Now, I don’t expect people to maintain civility 100% of the time, but recent weeks have proven to be an exercise in sheer frustration.

So, Where Have I Been?

It’s now been a few months since I last made a post here. There are some things that I plan on posting in the future soon, but for now, I need to get back into the swing of things. I know I don’t have a lot of readers, but for those that DO read my blog – I apologize for the lack of posting. Recently, I’ve been having to deal with some financial situations, and the possibility of not having an income is looming over me right now. There’s been a good deal of IRL stress and I haven’t been really wanting to think about this blog.

In the meantime, to catch up. I’ve been playing a good deal of SW:TOR. I know a lot of people are calling it a bad game and whatnot, but I feel that it’s not THAT bad. I’m enjoying it, and for me, that’s all that matters. Yeah, there could stand to be some improvement, but it’ll come I’m sure. I’ve also been raiding in Rift, still, so there’s that. We’re now 5/11 in Hammerknell (Murdantix, Zilas, Matron, Molinar and Estrode) and working on Sicaron and Grugonim. I actually got a chance to tank recently, too! That was fun, though Grugonim is a huge pain in the ass. Finally, I’ve also re-subscribed to WoW, and have been raiding on my hunter, which I transferred to Sen’jin. It’s been a very long time since I’ve played a pure DPS as a main, but it’s refreshing in the same way.

In December, though, I had a motherboard fail on me, causing about 3 weeks of no computer at all whatsoever. So that obviously didn’t help my situation here. Since then, that’s been taken care of, and now, I think I’m ready to get back into the swing of blogging. I intend to make a post or two more on healing pets, a post on support souls in Rift, and how I’m back to raiding in WoW on a pure DPS class. So, anticipate these in the near future.
