Really ! You don't think that saying that peoples ignorance after 14 years is amazing is in anyway aggressive.
Especially when all they are doing is nothing but displaying their own ignorance of the channel and how it works.
My take was totally one of "this game is so complex, and SOE does such a piss-poor job of providing documentation, that veteran players often don't really know how stuff works".
Hell, I've been playing since LDoN and I didn't know for a fact
whether /auction was server or zone wide. I assumed
it was zone-wide, but I didn't know
I've been playing for most of a decade and I'm pretty sure there are still 474675256378485 little things about the game that other veterans assume are common knowledge that I am totaly unaware of.
If, (not in this case, of course), but if
someone used sarcasm in the course of teaching me something new I might not appreciate the sarcasm, but I'd still be the wiser, and I'm OK with that. Maybe it's just me.
I was driving my hearse to the whole-sale liverwurst outlet when suddenly a hermaphrodite in a piano truck backed out of a crackhouse driveway, and, as my shoes caught fire, I pirouetted across Boris Karloff Boulevard, slapping the truckdriver six times ni the loins with a Chattanooga road map, even though he was humming "The Pussycat Song."
