so stop calling them toons.
this is a public service announcement. thank you for reading.


*** thanks for your feedback, through this experience i learned what trolling is, where toon came from and that i still dont like but you can as much as you want. ^^ dont feed the troll! (someone said to me in response to what a troll is) i just dont think we look cartoony at all. i figured thats why you call them toon(WoW) and i apologize for the random outburst, that cluttered forum :(

Come on, really? Players were calling their characters "toons" way back in 1999 in EQ, and likely in MUDs that predate even EQ. The OP is a perfect example of someone with an inferiority complex and attacking something just because it's popular.

I don't call my WoW characters toons. WoW doesn't anywhere in the game either.

No one is calling their chars in WoW toons. It's definatly coming from somewhere else. I only ever played WoW, RO, EVE and now FFXIV and have never heard toon before reading around in FFXIV forums. So maybe it's coming from FFXI? So stop trolling around.

Thank you.

The notion that "toon" is WoW lingo or that it somehow originated in WoW is so incredibly wrong. People were using this term when i started playing Asheron's Call back in 1999 and surely before that as well.

It's not like it's official lingo in WoW or anything either. Some people use it, some don't (me). I really only know of a few people in my GUILD or that i GROUP with that regularly use the word. Those that do use it likely brought it with them from somewhere else.

Also, why do so many FF players care so much? You act like it's somehow ruining your game.

You come off sounding like a snob. People can call them whatever they want to and the fact that you get upset/annoyed is kinda sad.

I think WoW stole his lunch money. I agree, there's certain Final Fantasy players that treat it like SUCH an Identity. It's worse than emo kids.

Wow doesn't own the catchphrase "toon" and neither does fffxiv. I don't understand the hatred of the comparison between wow and ffxiv. Wow is a fantastic game and so is ffxiv...at least it will be someday. Haters never pro

In FFXIV it would look more like,

I've heard EvEonline players refer to them as Toons, and EvE is about the furthest thing from WoW...so I say all the power to anyone who wants to call their spare chars whatever.

Too bad the only thing i like to do right now is craft on my toon. go ahead and send me a whisper if you dont like it, we can PVP.

I'm not sure I understand why not using the word 'toon' is elitist. I mean it is sort of a retarded sounding word. Not to mention SE does call them 'characters'. I guess its better than 'avatar' >.>

Unless "retarded" is a compliment, I believe that would be an "elitist" thing to say.

You are a tool.

I guess in FFXIV we could call them a waste of countless hours of programming hours, that would just take to long though, so TOON it is.

The most sad part about it is you'll always see the same jackass trying to correct the troll. Even when you tell them they're being trolled they're oblivious.

Despite the population difference you'd be surprised how well it worked in FFXI too. I had a lot of fun shouting jeuno back when it was a popular place to be. "Can I have some golds? I need to buy some grass for my mount quest." The things you do for entertainment waiting for hours on end looking for a group...

I know it's a Troll, but it's worth stating that the use of the term "toon" to refer to an MMO avatar started in the online role playing game Toontown Online. It was created by Disney and was a very watered down and childish version of a real MMO where you kill different "Cog" monsters with cartoon gags like anvils, TnT, seltzer bottles, etc. The game wasn't all that popular and didn't last very long from what I remember, BUT for some reason the term "toon" was imported into other games by ex players and sort of stuck (for some). Alot of time WoW gets credit for the use of the term, but that's more than likely only because there are so many more people playing WoW than any other MMO, so therefore more people use the word.

The more you know! *cheesy shooting star/rainbow graphic here*
#49 Oct 21 2010 at 7:40 PM Rating: Good
I hate the term "toon" as much as the next person (I won't even call my WoW character a "toon".) but making a thread about it is utterly and completely pointless. People are going to do it no matter what so you can either:

A.) Deal with it and move on.
B.) Bawl and rant about it then quit.

You lose either way so why not make it easier on yourself and just blacklist someone if it bothers you that much.

I dont like the word toon either, and roll my eyes every time I read it wondering what in the world people are thinking calling their character a toon. Seriously, it sounds like you're playing Mickey's Clubhouse '94 or some animated-aimed-at-10-year-olds-game.
