To all of you *****ing and complaining.

I would appreciate if you would stop using we and us, or speaking as if you are the playerbase as a whole.

"We" are all not having gamebreaking issues. "We" are all not unsatisfied with the game. "We" are not you. Post as an I and other people can post with you as an I.

Look at many major game releases: PC, XBox, PS3... THERE IS NO WE!




Thank you from one of the us,

Aka. Me

It's like you have read my mind and written exactly what I was thinking, almost as if we were somehow linked...
We are damn offended by this. We will not stand for it.

All kidding aside though I couldn't agree more. Every complaint thread I read throws around this we instantly trying to include anyone who doesn't actually speak up and disagree with them. I also see that people have a habit of saying things like "x problem is affecting thousands of players" without bothering to back up their claims.

Gets on our nerves so it does.

We think your post is old and pointless. We hate people that complain about complainers. Oh wait did we just complain about complainers complaining about complainers complaining? Oh nevermind we are lost.

Just because you are not part of said group does not mean we doesn't apply. If this was apart someone using all of us or all the fan, key word there being all. Then you could try to exclude yourself.

Just because someone used we doesn't mean your included in said group. Relax a little.

The problem though is the the speaker/writer is often using "We" in relation to a bug/glitch that they and only they have experienced. If this bug/glitch [B]has[B] been experienced by anyone else then speaker/writer uses this "We" to try and include these other people in their complaint without their consent.

And therein lies the rub.

Most of the time 'we' is needlessly used by people too insecure to express their opinion in the singular, under the mistaken belief it adds weight to their argument.

Good post. Too bad the finer points of grammar (and logic) are lost on the internet crowd.

As the numbers of players continue to dwindle you'll lose that "we" claim.

Things aren't improving and most people notice it. Don't get mad.

And where do you get the idea that anyone actually included you in their "we"? After all, "we" is used every time when there is (are) more than 1 person, right?

Well if you are happy to have someone speaking for you without your permission then I suppose thats up to you. Although considering how often I see you posting on the forums I would have assumed that wasn't the case. I'll be sure to remember that any time someone uses "we" when they are voicing a complaint that I should assume that you agree with them.

I havent met many that dont agree with what I say to be honest, maybe in slightly different wording but the sentiment is there!


In all seriousness though, people are going to use 'we' to represent at least them and their friend that had the same thought, it's not meant for you personally so dont get too hung up about it :)

Glad someone caught the joke, this was never meant to be taken seriously. It would be a bit "interesting" on the Wii, well, that is until I fell off the stupid board and knocked over the TV. At that point, I'd have to fire up the PC so I could *headdesk*.

"We" are all not having gamebreaking issues.

Character data loss impacts us all, whether or not we enjoy the game or if we have personally lost anything. Or whether we are upset about it.

The PC data corruption issue that necessitated a 9 hour downtime and short rollback is a fantastic example of what we have been experiencing and is indisputably a gamebreaking issue.

"It's an MMO" is not an excuse for player data corruption. That is the core of MMO. That **** needs to be solid before you even leave alpha, let alone go from beta to release.
