Good post, Guhndahb.

Agreed. It may not appeal to me, personally, but it was definitely the way to go.

And agreed. I played enough to get better, but sadly "better" just means learning to do stupid nonsensical actions like jump-hitting cavalry or blindly strafing and circle-hitting in HtH combat. In fact, in some ways the experience became less frustrating but also less entertaining as I got better at it. Rince-and-repeating these twitch actions isn't my idea of fun. But again, I can see why others enjoy it.

Nice and fun. The worst I've had were people obsessed with their kill-counts who would swear and blame broken mechanics or incompetent teammates whenever killed. Some clan called "22nd" is apparently full of them. But if that's the worst of it, that's awesome. Some funny crazy types too, it's cool when someone who is really good opts to run around as a half-naked barbarian to give other people a better shot at him (as a user called WEe does).
