I think im missing the point here with some of the responses I am seeing. From what I see here it seems to be in very poor taste to speak poorly of some of the high level LS's on the server and perfectly ok to flame the **** out of others.
Everyone became so upset when people decided to speak poorly of a few of the LS's on the server and some of those same posters (who were defending the other LS's)are in this topic bombing Armies new LS. Is there a reason for this?
I mean seriously, this LS just like the others that have been brought up in posts here have their own forums! Perhaps if you have issues with armies new LS you could post them there?
I dont know...
The responses to this topic make me very sad. His request may not have been as elegant as some of the other HNM LS recruitment topics I have seen here (intensty's recruit topic is quite cool), but he does deserve at least to be able to post such a request here without being flamed and ostrisized. Do you guys blame those players for banding together? The thing about outcasts, is that they always find a way of forming theyre own groups. Yes in that LS may be poor or disliked players, but is it all thier fault? If you no one will pt with them because they think that they suck, how are they supposed to learn to do theyre jobs well, or manners for that matter? Yes they are all very angry when they post here, or they have a **** you attitude towards the community here. Well if a group of people had been speaking of some of you poorly for a length of time, that the posters here would take the high road, and display neither of those sentiments (rude or I dont care attitudes)?
I am not vouching for anyones playing habits or personalities. For all I know army and infamous could be siamese twins plotting the destruction of the world from the very same desk. I do however think its unfair of you (those posters who came right out and responded with negativity in a topic that was about something positive) to flame him or talk poorly of this person for trying to make his own community. Its obvious to me that you (being those of you that post negative things about these players on a regular basis) dont want him (them) to be a part of your community. But as a general word of advice, beware how many players you ridicule and outcast, because you force them to work together, and you never know...you may one day be faced with a group of those same players offering you serious competition in your ventures and (maybe) beating you to your pulls. You will have no one to thank for this but yourselves, because you have quite literally bred your own competition by choosing to exclude some of your fellow players (please note I am not offering commentary on wether or not those players deserve your negative attitudes). So the question I pose to the posters of this board is why is there so much negativity towards this person trying to create his own LS?
On a final note. Armyofone I wish you the best of luck in the forming of your LS. I am not high enough level to join an HNM LS, but if I was looking to join one I would not have overlooked yours for it looks like it has as good of potential as any of the others. I hope that it goes well for you, and If you see me in game be sure to say hello.
I hope that in the future you guys can find it in your hearts to let all players on your server make requests for in-game subjects on an equal basis, and not discriminate against those players who you do not personally like.
