Just started back playing FFXI after about 3 years of wasting my time on WoW, Age of Fail and vanguard.

I had 5 75s on Kujata server when I quit (RDM/BLM/NIN/BRD/MNK) and every other job was above level 60 (before Corsair and BLU came out) and was in an active endgame HNMLS The Blue Crew if anyone has heard of them.

But I am looking for a server to start new on, FROM THE BEGINNING.

Can't wait to get started I freakin missed this awesome game and love its gameplay :)love end game dynamis, sky drama HNM Nidhogg drama etc lol

I think we're just as good as most of the other servers?

I wish people would stop calling it "reroll" or "rolling." >_>

You don't roll stats in FFXI. There are no dice, or even representations of dice in the character creation process. Stats are fixed by race/job selection. 'Rolling' is an archaic term with no intelligent application in this case.

I don't think I'm right. I know I'm right. Deal with it like an adult and move on.

No, that lingo is not used in FFXI. No one I know uses those words. We could take a poll, if it will make you feel better to see that you're in a very small minority here.

If you're going to whine and cry like a little **** take your 'rerolls' and 'toons,' shove them up your ass, and GTFO our MMO. I think WoW is more your speed. Please go, and rid us all of your stupidity.

Um...pretty sure he made no mention of it being the first MMO, nor does that have anything to do with this case.

Point simply is that if you are coming to a forum dedicated to a particular game, use terminology that, while people might understand, has absolutely no bearing on the game itself...don't be surprised if someone points it out to you.

Kind of like talking to a football fan and asking how many runs does one team have. Sure they'll understand you, but probably will correct you.

Then as a response you say...

Dumb ass. The best you can do is resort to utter and complete stupidity and these forums apparently cater to that.


Never said WoW was the first. Do they 'roll' stats? I wouldn't know. I've never actually played WoW first-hand. I wouldn't be able to tell you the first MMO ever. All I can tell you is that Everquest was the first MMO I heard about. I had never heard of an online roleplaying game before I first heard of Everquest.

And as for my age? I'm a Web Master at a university. I own my own car and home, and plan on getting married in the near future. I don't think those are things a 15-year-old would do. I don't feel the need to give you my personal information, but I'll say that I grew up in the time of Ghostbusters, He-Man, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You might call that time the 80's. I call it 'the good ol' days.'

Even if I was 15, would it matter? Are you saying 15 year olds can't be intelligent and can't possibly know more than you? So, not only are you rude, wrong, and relentless, but now you've shown yourself to be discriminatory based on age. Furthermore, if you think insulting these forums are going to earn you any supporters, you're wrong.

Maybe it's time you took a step back, realized you're being a bit of a prick, and back off. I've more than proven my point here, as you're unable to even stay on topic anymore. It's time for you to run away with your tail between your legs. Au revoir!

See, you talk as if I summoned demons from **** to rip out the OP's throat for using these words. I simply pointed out they're not appropriate in this game. Just because you have some past experience with an MMO doesn't mean you know what the **** you're talking about. I'm not argueing that the phrases aren't used in other MMOs. I couldn't care less what other MMOs call it. I'm just telling you that FFXI players don't say that because it doesn't apply to our circumstances. Ask your linkshell, if you have one. No one says those words.

You're the one who started the name calling. Step #1: scroll up. Step #2: read it. Step #3: get your head out of your ass.

Zomg, I used the word "our." Guess I can't call my hometown, "MY" hometown anymore, eh? Because that implies ownership. Thank goodness you're here to correct my basic understanding of the english language.

Quote:
AND SPEAKING OF IRONY, Telling me to go back to WoW? You're calling me a whiny little **** and saying WoW is up to my speed? AND YOU BRING UP DISCRIMINATION?


Uh-huh... because age discrimination is on the same level as WoW-player discrimination. I admit, I don't like WoW, and I think people that play it are choosing a really crappy game to waste their life with. They can say the same about me, for all I care. See, that's the difference between you and I. You talk sh*t, but can't take it. Me? I don't give a damn, because I've already written you off.

Quote:
Relentless? Of course I am relentless. You are a god **** idiot and these forums are supporting you. I am not here to seek their support either. Just to bring your dumb **** down a notch for actually believing you're right.


Why am I an idiot? What proof do you have? I think I've formed my arguements very well, but all I see from you is unrelated points, assumptions, name-calling, and straw-man arguements.

You haven't brought me down a notch at all. You're just name-calling and argueing things without backing them up. You do realize that people have rated you down to default because you're A) a prick and B) wrong, right? Trust me, I don't have a rate-up/rate-down army to back me up. I'm a nobody on these forums.

Quote:
I am sure there is absolutely nothing else I can say to make you shut up since you probably honestly believe that your web master status at your university magically can relinquish my argument.


Straw man arguement. I've never claimed this, and I shouldn't have to refute it. I simply brought up my job to explain to you that I'm not 15.

I don't really know why I'm replying to all your points. The entire arguement is about 'rolling' and similar words that just aren't used by the FFXI player base.

So please, to other people, if you're reading this, post if you use that terminology. I'd love to see just how many people truly use those words, since Lambface here thinks that everyone does.

You're just a dumb **** who can't grasp any of this. It phases you like the worthless moron you are.


See, this is another point in which you are wrong. I UNDERSTAND what you are saying. You think this common MMO terminology is accepted everywhere. The terminology has a long history in MMOs and is currently being used in other online games. We agree on that part.

The problem is, that you are committing a logical fallacy here, and you refuse to admit the slightest chance that you could be wrong.

"Rolling is a term used in some MMOs. FFXI is an MMO. Thus, 'rolling' is used in Final Fantasy XI."

"Some X are Y. Z is Y. Z must be X."

That's not logically valid.

To say that ALL MMOs use that terminology is incredibly narrow-minded of you. You can't say that without playing (or at least researching) all MMOs... and if you give in on that ground, then you have to admit that there is a chance that FFXI doesn't use that lingo.

And guess what? We don't. I don't know why you're arguing this. You PLAY Final Fantasy XI, don't you? Do you have friends on the game you talk to? Ask them. Please, ask them. Take a quick poll of the people you're most familiar with in-game. You'll learn, overall, there are a few nuts like you that say it, but you're a very small minority.

I can't even believe this thread has gone on so long over an argument so stupid. If you were going to just be close-minded about the whole thing, you should have just posted, "I disagree. I think that jargon is used. It has a history in MMOs. I can't be persuaded to think otherwise. Good bye." and never posted again.

Instead, you just posted back and forth calling me names. And why? To troll? Is that what this is? Well, I hope you had fun. Your name-calling wasn't even very witty or impressive on any level. I've had rednecks tear me a new one better. (No offense to any redneck ffxi players. :P)

I'm really impressed with your patience, Keriam ;-)
I, for one, have decided not to argue with idiots anymore, because it's a total waste of time, and it's not even satisfying: they will never admit they're wrong, and they're just too dense to realize the problem could be with them, not with the world.

Oh, I know the world is pretty broken, but some individuals make average people look smart. Quite a feat, if you ask me.

As a friend of mine, who happens to be an astrophysicist and to have a little media attention, would say: "I will not enter a debate about the origins of the universe with Mr. <insert crackpot name>. It may look good on his CV; not so on mine."

Ah, to leave hateful people facing themselves, and to go out and smell the flowers.

Or to send fucktards to WoW and enjoy FFXI.

Your long winded false argument is completely moronic. You say nobody uses the term yet there is two people on this thread!


I thought you said you were done. Oh... wait... I know what this is. YOU MISSED ME!!! <3 I appreciate the affection, Lambon, I really do! Unfortunately, I hate to break it to you, but I am not available... and your clever attempt at monopolizing my time with this silly argument will not break me and my loved one up. I'm sorry. There's just no chance for you and I. :(

Maybe in another time... another place... maybe. /sigh.

Your point wasn't proven because the OP used the term. If your point was proven, you'd have an actual supporter here. No one else has posted saying "hey, I use this term." Well, I have had 3 supporters in this thread already... so I guess my point is proven too. Yay for all of us being right!!!

Man, it's awesome to just pick random things to justify our conclusions. I can start doing that too. "Look, the sky is blue!! That proves my point!!!"

Quote:
OH WAIT YOU ACKNOWLEDGE IT! "The few nuts that use it." So you know it's used yet you argue that it's not.


Well, yeah. My 9 year old used to call weapon skills, "cool things." He'd say, upon hitting 100% TP, "use your cool thing!" Does that mean the terminology is used in the game? Sure, if it's used by ONE person, you could argue that it's used in the game. That wasn't my point, though. I've been arguing that there are only a FEW idiots in the game who use it. While I used phrases like "no one says that," an intelligent person would realize I'm using a generality. I don't literally mean "no one."

If you examine my arguments, you see that I say that you're in a minority. You could make up your own terminology for the game and say it's used "in game" if you really wanted to. But, as is the case here, don't be surprised when people who know more than you come along and tell you that you're f@%*ing retarded.*

* No offense meant if you're actually retarded.

Quote:
Remarkable that you thought I was trying to be witty with my insults. I was never trying to be witty. I was trying to be aggressive. That redneck remark was clearly offensive to any rednecks out there and an insult to comedy itself. So now, you're not only stupid, but you're also a spineless bigot.


Oh sweet, merciful Altanna. You realize, at this point, you're too stupid to live, right? We may have to track you down and kill you.

Well, Lambon, savior of the redneck populace, I've got something to tell you. I live in one part of redneck America. I feel I'm free to judge. You can feel otherwise, if you wish, but it's irrelevant to the discussion.

An insult to comedy? I wasn't trying to be funny. I did rip you pretty good there, though, if I do say so myself. Spineless? Now that's just a stretch. I haven't exhibited any traits of spinelessness. If you can find some, please share.

And a bigot? Against rednecks? Sure. I'll take that label. So, while we're clearing things up:

Me? I'm a bigot against rednecks. I dislike people who are deadbeat drunks who fish and hunt and live in dirty run down trailers with their family of 12. There. I said it. If I'm going to hell, so be it.

You? You discriminate based on age, as seen earlier. You judge someone on a figure that isn't even their fault. I hate to tell you this, but I've met 15-year-olds that form better arguments than you. Probably better arguments than me, too.

At least when I attach the label of 'stupid' on a person, I look for actual traits they exhibit to prove it.

Why the **** are you even turning this into an argument about this? Oh right, to distract us from the fact that you're still wrong and can't back up your opinion except to argue pointless sh*t.

Quote:
So again, you acknowledge some people use it but you can't restrain yourself when I call you stupid, and you have the gall to tell me to be an adult and move on? And I'm the dense one here? You people are STUPID.


You people? People? You know what, I'm not even going to touch that one.

Sure, SOME people use it. By some, I mean an idiotic minority. I'd be willing to say 90-99% of FFXI players do not use that terminology. If it was accepted jargon in FFXI, 51% or greater of the players would use "rolling." But that's just not the case.

Don't pretend you were arguing all along that 1% of the game uses that terminology, and that you were justified in your argument all along. Because we all know what you were arguing. You've just been stupid all along.

And yeah, you're the dense one here. It's what we're all trying to tell you.

Actually, I don't really see the point of "advising" a person about the use of the word "roll".

I understand what he's trying to ask, you probably do so too, even if this term is taboo in FFXI, everyone understands and knows what he's trying to ask.

Keep sounding stupid. You can't bring the fact a minority uses it. My argument was that the term is indeed used. You're now using the fact that only some people use it and now suddenly that's your argument? Just accept the fact you're wrong, douche bag.


You're arguing against me, and what I've been arguing all along is that a minority (6% according to the poll) is all that uses that terminology. As proven before, saying it is "used in the game" suggests a moderate level of use, otherwise it's a worthless statement. 6% is not a moderate level of use.

If you argue that 6% validates your statements, then it really begs the question of where you draw the line? Or does even 0.000001% of the game justify your stance? If so, I guess that means I can make similar arguments. Some of us have heard of a player who likes WHM/THF. So I guess I can make the claim, "People on FFXI think that WHM/THF is a good idea." It's true for an incredibly small minority... so I guess my statement is true by your standards.

At this point, there are either two options. You agree that the example I just gave is a valid statement, showing yourself to be even more of an idiot. Or you argue against it and show yourself to be a hypocrite, ruining your entire argument all along, and showing yourself to be even more of an idiot. So which is it?

By the way, terms like "douche bag" only show your low level of maturity. But that's okay, because you don't care about your impression on this forum anymore. That much is obvious.

You're also trying to change my argument. I will now quote for you, my original posts:

Quote:
I wish people would stop calling it "reroll" or "rolling." >_>
'Rolling' is an archaic term with no intelligent application in this case.
We could take a poll, if it will make you feel better to see that you're in a very small minority here.


As you can see from the above quoted material, my stance all along has been that the term is idiotic and that only a very small minority uses it. Now stop trying to say that I've said anything other than that fact.

This is the argument you've been involved in all along. The argument you claimed to be leaving... so why are you still here? As a disagreeing party in this discussion, you have all-along held the stance that a significant portion of the ffxi playerbase uses those terms. Otherwise, you screwed up to begin with and started an argument with me when you agree with me. So tell me now, WHO exactly is changing their argument? I'm arguing the same thing I always have.

Quote:
You're obviously under some delusion if you think your long, incoherent spew has any credibility.


Long, incoherent spew? If that's what you want to call sound logic skills, go ahead. If it's incoherent to you, then it's clearly over your head. No one else had a hard time reading it.

Quote:
You break down a post, like every other **** on this forum, and somehow attempt to conjure an insult from everything said. How pathetic that you can't stay on subject since it's pretty likely you have already come to terms with the fact you were wrong all along.


Again... I've proved you wrong in this thread. I'm getting tired of doing it. Breaking down a post is how people respond to arguments. They examine the flaws in each of your posts. You must be new to the Internet if you think it's exclusive to these forums.

As for insulting you? I'm actually holding back a great deal... unless you consider losing an argument an insult. If that's the case, I insulted you all over the place. Thus, I apologize for any psychological trauma I've caused you.

Because it annoys me, like it does many people? That's reason enough to point it out. If no one says anything, the phrases are allowed to spread. It's even more dumb when it applies to something that doesn't even make sense anymore.

To roll is a reference to dice. There are no dice being used here.

That's annoying enough without going into it further.

This guy is delusional.
You didn't prove me wrong at all. Your argument was that the term is not used at all. It is in fact used even if it's by a small amount of players. You argue semantics if you bring up the meaning of the word since I clearly implied it's an MMO jargon. You fail to grasp any of this and yet you're here prying on about how "skilled" you are. You are a clown who has to reassure himself with these long witless posts. Douche bag. That's what you are and calling me immature because of it? you're kidding right? Do I need to point out the things you said before? I won't because it's pretty obvious you're beyond hope. You clearly have some issues coping with reality.

Your argument was that the term is not used at all.


You're wrong or a liar. See above (or below, as I quoted myself).

You're also trying to change my argument. I will now quote for you, my original posts:

Quote:
I wish people would stop calling it "reroll" or "rolling." >_>
'Rolling' is an archaic term with no intelligent application in this case.
We could take a poll, if it will make you feel better to see that you're in a very small minority here.


As you can see from the above quoted material, my stance all along has been that the term is idiotic and that only a very small minority uses it. Now stop trying to say that I've said anything other than that fact.

This is the argument you've been involved in all along. The argument you claimed to be leaving... so why are you still here? As a disagreeing party in this discussion, you have all-along held the stance that a significant portion of the ffxi playerbase uses those terms. Otherwise, you screwed up to begin with and started an argument with me when you agree with me. So tell me now, WHO exactly is changing their argument? I'm arguing the same thing I always have.


Quote:
You fail to grasp any of this


Already handled above too, but there's little point in reposting it.

So, for the record, using the example in my last post, you're taking up the position of "People on FFXI think that WHM/THF is a good idea." as being a true statement?

Idiocy...

I don't care for the term 'roll' simply because WoW players use it, and I prefer that WoW have absolutely nothing to do with FFXI (the same goes for the term 'toon,' which I particularly loathe).

And that's after the fact that PEOPLE DON'T USE THE TERM ROLL IN FFXI. Sure, a very small minority do, probably because they used to play WoW or EQ or some other MMO where the term was relevant, and they aren't concerned enough to change their lingo.

OP, please feel free to reroll, preferably on a WoW server. However please understand that the term has absolutely no relevance to FFXI and is an archaic throwback to MUD and D&D games.

Keriam, I applaud you for fighting the good fight. Your logic is in fact quite sound; however when someone fails to acknowledge logic once confronted with it, I find that it is rather pointless to continue arguing. Some people are entirely convinced of their own legitimacy regardless of facts.

#34lambon, Posted: Apr 24 2009 at 4:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) How self absorbed you people are. To believe FFXI is so amazing that it doesn't even belong in the same genre as other MMOs.

Even here you contradict yourself.
Unused lingo and small minority. Which one is it? Douche bag.


Have you not heard of exaggerations? How old are you? Five?

Haven't you ever heard of, for example, someone talking about someone who is a bit odd. "Uncle Jim eats his eggs with chocolate syrup." "Really? That's weird." "I know, right? Nobody does that."

Did the person who said "nobody does that" actually mean they believed that NO ONE eats eggs with chocolate syrup, despite the fact that they KNOW Uncle Jim does? No. Only an idiot would understand that to be a contradiction.

Shanecf/Keriam knows what he's talking about. Lambon, you're just too stupid to admit the truth.

Do you even read posts? Or are you just too stupid to comprehend the fact that I proved to you at least TWICE now that my argument has been that only a small minority use that term, and they're an extremely small, stupid minority.

If you're just going to keep coming back with "no you didn't" to all my posts, when I support myself with quotes that PROVE I'm correct, then please stop posting.

Before you go, Lambon, do you still play Cazar? I see he hasn't sold anything since 2006. Have you been arguing terminology for a game you haven't even played for 3 years, or are you on a different character now? Let us know, so we all know who to Black List so we never have to worry about partying with your stupid ass.

For the record, your argument started with: "What the **** is wrong with saying reroll/rolling?" To which I explained that it's not accepted terminology for FFXI. You argued against that. Stop changing your argument.
