I know there will always be immature players no matter what game/server you are on but I wanted to post my experience anyways. Tonight in Ul Dah on Besaid (the "unofficial Role Player" server as voted by players a month before xiv came out and posted on many fan sites) someone was repeatedly complaining about RPers. They said things like "OH WHY DID THE ONE SERVER I CHOOSE HAVE TO BE THE RP SERVER" and "Shouldnt all the RPers be playing Hello Kitty Online like 12 year olds" etc. etc. So I reply that HE'S the one whining like a little baby. He just comments that someone named "Pink Mermaid" is trying to confront him. Like my name means anything. Trolls are immature. Why do they persist in games? I suppose I should have just ignored it but when people are actively calling out a set of gamers who play different than you for no other reason than that it is akin to racism IRL (judging people just because they are different skin color or religion, etc than you) (although I know its not nearly as serious in a game it is still what it is.) He just trolled on and on until I blacklisted him.
I'm not a RPer, and no RPers were replying back to him. I imagine they either blacklisted him or just ignored it, or weren't on (I hardly ever run into RPers anymore). I'm not posting their names because I have no desire to call people out, I just wanted to rant my rant even if it is insignificant.
