I don't remember us needing gear at all.


Think of it like this: a pld is supposed to tank, right? So what should he gear himself towards? Obviously the answer is gear that'll help him enhance holding hate and/or damage reduction. Depending on their SJ (just like smn) they situationally place in gear that'll help their overall performance.

A summoner is supposed to, y'know, summon, right? So obviously we're going to have some form of gear that'll help enhance that (AF, Auster, Smn. Torque, etc.) But then you'd have to think realistically and buy hMP gear to increase the frequency of BP and then account mp you'll be using for other roles (healer). What I just listed is the traditional way of SMN, but I'm not knocking the melee aspect, I just don't gravitate towards it. That's why I'm annoyed :P.

If you don't have ratebots, then you didn't lose anything, so why would you care if it's a joke or not?

Unintentional side effect of people thinking they DID have ratebots if it was a joke.

Because to most people your status and reputation is about 50% of your post's credibility. Look at you, then look at Craftermath. Who are we (smn board) going to generally agree with? D:

Yes, but my reputation and his reputation on this forum were built on:

One of us generally offers sound advice based on experience, concedes when he makes a mistake, understands that in a team game, you might have to be a benefit to a team, sticks to his arguments because they're right, retorts to dissent with humor, generally uses common sense and realistic expectations based on game mechanics as the root of his advice.

One of us is relatively inexperienced and offers advice anyway which is based on theory and idealism, always either conspicuously ignores or obstinately sticks to his guns when he makes a mistake, shifts his arguments constantly to suit the point he is currently trying to make, then pretending that his new argument was his argument all along, could care less what anyone in his party needs or would benefit from, because he's going to play the way he wants, efficiency be damned, retorts to dissent with insults and wishing his detractors would kill themselves, generally breaks from common sense and uses unrealistic expectations which are supported by evidence which it would be a vast understatement to call "of dubious credibility," I.E. full-time melee Fenrir leaving a WAR or DRK in the dust in a merit party, and other things that strongly defy game mechanics as the root of his advice manifesto.

I had thought it was LttP>LA>LoZ>LoZ2>OoT>MM and then WW and TP were supposed to be like... alternate universes or something. Or it might not matter, because it's a ******* video game about a 4'5" elf saving an eternal cocktease.

Not really. It reflects how "mainstream" you are. Assuming this would be a naruto forum you'd have high rating for being "Naruto is awesome!" and low rating if you were of the type "Naruto has just been boring fillers lately".

However when I hear ratebots I always get confused at which direction you are talking. Rate up or rate down, the person mentioned is the owner or the target? So if anyone talked about "my" ratebots I'd probably assume they talked about bots targeting me for rate downs. Not that I get rated down often enough to suspect there to be any.

Yeah, I guess it's mainstream to assert that summoner can do things which it can do, and cannot do things which it cannot. I guess it's also mainstream to be bored with people whose every post centers around how rough summoner has it and how unwanted and weak we are, and how it needs to be completely revamped and upgraded with A, B, C, D, E, F, etc.

Does this mean that I'm more mainstream than NegPos?

lol Let's not fool ourselves. "Mainstream" designations are a chicken and egg argument. Am I mainstream because I have the red name, or do I have the red name because I am mainstream.

Colored names are an illusion of power. When there are only three things that differentiate posters before looking at the content of their posts, then there will be a perceived hierarchy. And, since colored names trump both postcount and premium access, colored names represent the largest illusion of power.

Hey, "look what I did!" I contributed to the derailment of another SMN forum thread.

-.-

I killed the Tungi NM last night. Not much of an accomplishment, but it is one of the first things I've attempted to do without a whole party/alliance/LS with me.
