A Day in the Life...

...of Kirin Tor.

I changed my mind. There is something I've got on my mind. My server's most unsavory guild leader has returned, and with his public sex fiascoes also comes something I despise even more.

Yes, I know what you're thinking. How can anything be more offensive than public rape? It's an RP server. You learn to deal.

No, this fiend brings with him the reintroduction of roll dueling. Not role-dueling, implying that it is related to roleplaying and not inherently retarded. Rolls. Like dice.

They pay 15 dollars a month to play World of Warcraft. So they can roleplay. And duel with dice.

...what the fuck?

The essence of this system is that two characters, no matter what level, can fight (to the death, if pertinent) with text and /roll to determine the success of their "attacks."

I cry foul. There's already an entire combat system right in front of you. If you're too lazy to actually leave Goldshire and level, that's your business. If you step up to a warrior or paladin that's been to Ulduar, and you're just some peasant that gets laid in the Goldshire public toilet stall nightly, then you are going to get your ass handed to you.

I've heard all the arguments too. Disagree with them, and they'll insult your intelligence. They will allege that you lack the mental capacity to think out your attacks before hand.

Well, fuck them in their stupid, gaping, man-plundered assholes.

World of Warcraft is a game where fast reaction time meets planning. And by planning, I mean the time it takes to gear. You don't have any of those, then you suck at the game. Don't pretend to be a winner when you're not.

Comment if you have skills to pay the bills. XD

  1. I'm so glad I'm not on an rp server, rp=retard permissible right? I would think playing on an rp server in a video game you would want the game to have the world and systems for you to play your role in place, otherwise you'd just play dice games on aim or something?

    Sorry I have nothing against people who actually enjoy rping, just against people who think it's their license to be retarded and say "it's rp!"
