My honest to god real problem with Remora? Well, since you asked so kindly, I suppose I shall answer... You ready for this?
It was the first server forums I saw with a lame ass post in the "Last active thread" collum on the main server forums page. I was bored, so I thought I'd attempt to rescue the dirty Remorans from their sorry plight as lolremorans. That is all.
I find it very interesting that everyone tries to find some "personal greater reasoning" behind my actions here, and that they think that this is my "real" personality. In fact, its quite the opposite. I find FFXI to be more than a game, it could be compared quite similarly to a job. You see, on Fenrir resides the people I call friends, colleagues, confidants, acquaintances, and sadly, even enemies from time to time. Whereas, since this is the Remoran Forums, its a nice place to escape and have a little fun without really hurting anyones' emo feelings and burning bridges with my "co-workers".
No offense, or anything, but you guys really don't mean anything to me. Nothing more than text across my screen, as I'm sure you feel towards me and others people from the various other servers. Outside your home server, all others are just a source of information so that you can accomplish your own personal goals in your own personal server with your own personal friends.
Since the beginning of the internet there have been forums of some kind. And since the beginning of the forums there has been a playful sort of game called "Flaming". Its a way that every participant can relieve the pressure and stress that builds up throughout the work day, week, month, or even year by insulting nameless, faceless people that you never have to confront, nor do you have to face the consequences of your petty internet actions. When its all said and done, no one cares. There is no "internet reputation" that people talk so threateningly of. If I piss someone here off, its not gonna make much of a difference because there are millions of other people a click away.
Sure, I may sound like an absolute prick right now, and you guys all might think that if I were on Remora everyone would hate me and I wouldn't have any success in this game, but that's a moronic idea. If I were on Remora from the start, or even if I got a WP and started new with the name Atreya, I would find success in the game, because I know how to.
You can go ahead and ask the people of Fenrir about me, I have done so myself. Some Remoran even took the liberty to link to my thread, but I'll give it to you here: http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html...113;page=1]
Sure, people have their run-ins with others. People get pissed off and treat others like sh*t because of it. You all have too, its human nature (Yes, even the "peace loving" people do it.) But when it comes down to it, we have our good times too. Some of us have more bad times than good, unfortunately it's true. I for one, honestly strive to help others in the game I love, and strive even harder to right my wrongs as time progresses. As I'm sure many of you will agree, it wears you down when you're always up for helping others, but can't seem to find help when you need it. Many times have I hunted others keys, but couldn't find help for my own.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not seeking pity, nor trying to imply that I need more friends so I can get my sh*t done. Just explaining how going to another server and starting flame wars is a nice way to relax. You get to "get back" on others without hurting another human.
Well, now I'm beginning to ramble on, so I'll wrap it up for anyone still reading this and not jumping for the "reply" button. Deep inside, everyone wants to release the inner demon inside. You can deny to others, but not to yourself. Its human nature to want to smite other people, its when your actions cause pain that you become a "bad person". Atleast I find my relief in a way that doesn't physically, and shouldn't emotionally hurt anyone. (If you're emotionally hurt by what some internet dude said about you, you should seek mental help from a professional. Seriously.)
