mood: awake

A friend of mine started playing WoW a couple months ago, playing a NE Hunter named Anevay for about a month before giving up. During that time she came across a very annoying LvL 11 NE Hunter named Shadowofsun...

Shadowofsun started out asking a few simple, and harmless questions about his hunter quest. Fine, no problems here. Soon those few questions about the hunter quest turned into 45 minutes of constant questions about the game. Knowing very little about the game, Anevay could barely answer anything, but was too polite to tell Shadowofsun to "Fuck Off". At this point me and my other friend Jared were playing Halo 2 while Anevay was being harrassed by the n00b, and we started to take interest....

The plan? Ruin Shadowofsun's playing experience.

Why? Because we're mean. And I think the pre-req for me joining Eternals said something about being an ass to everyone. No problems there...

***Quick FAQ before you read:

Q: Why two chat windows?
A: I use the second chat window to filter out chat in General, and yells while I read raid/guild chat (especially helpful during raids), and also its a handy way to save Tells if you walk away from your computer in Ironforge...

Q: What MODS do you use?
A: NERFED, Titan Bar, Scrolling Combat Text, CT_Raid Assist, Auctioneer

***End FAQ (if you have more questions, comment and i'll answer them).






I quickly logged on my Warlock ALT Scene on my computer. Shadowofsun had been asking about a Weapon's trainer. Anevay sent the group invite to Scene a 'helpful' friend of her's.


I quickly assembled 2 more people to help 'summon a friend' to Booty Bay.

Upon arrival, I took Shadowofsun to the Innkeeper to set his hearthstone to BB 'You will need it in a min'. There would be no hearthing back to that pretty Night Elf place anytime soon.




I quickly confirmed that the n00b underst00d what I told him to do...



I broke out the big guns to help escort him to the PvP Arena in STV, keeping a LVL 11 alive from the entrance of BB to the Arena is a whore...



Almost inside...and a little lie about the level of the mobs outside...Oh, what DooM awaits you my young friend...



Oops...



BETRAYED!!





Even after the rank 9 shadow bolt ate his face, he didn't understand I had killed him. He rez'd right on top of his body, and typed out his confusion, right before my Death Coil said hello.



A LVL 11 with no Hearth to anywhere, in the middle of STV? Yeah, you DON'T know where you are, do you?



Beg my pretty, beg...



At this point, he still thinks I'm taking him to the weapons trainer...How stupid do you really have to be? After the first time I died, I would have called it quits...



I swear, the weapon's master is RIGHT HERE....oh, oh no you're dead again...





I agree to 'help' him get home by opening a 'portal' back to Darnassus...Oh wait, i'm not a Mage! My mistake...







At this point, I simply abbandon him. Having no hearth stone, and being in the middle a of a 35-40 zone, he was pretty screwed. Not only that, he had never completed his Hunter quest, so he still had a LONG run back to Darnassus even if he could fine his way...

The lesson here? Never, EVER trust anyone with my guild tag, don't ask continous questions for the better part of an hour, and find a new game to play, cause you may be smart enough to zerg to 60 on your hunter, but you're not going to get anywhere after that.

I dont see why people approve of this.

A simple 'no go away /ignore' would suffice.

Its immature of you to have done that and basically makes you look like a complete cock. Everyone was new at some points, some are naturally good, some arent, that doesnt give you the right to be a complete mong about it.

If that was our server, youd be on permanent KOS by the horde, and you 'wouldnt' get away ever. Theres lamers, and theres complete cruel bastards.

Why did I do it?

The same reason I one time ninja’d a Magister’s Robes from the only Mage in our UBRS group. After a long run of him pulling agro, wiping the group, and sheeping targets already being attacked I decided he didn’t deserve the loot. We live in a society today were people that are blatantly stupid simply aren’t allowed to fail because it wouldn’t be “Fair”.

I don’t think stupidity should be rewarded, ever. Simply existing as a worthless lump of humanity in this world doesn’t entitle you to ANYTHING imo. Not even loot, or in this case the ability to play in a MMORPG.

I firmly believe the worthless dregs of society should be exploited by anyone smarter than them. Why? Cause if your dumb enough to fall for their schemes, well then its Darwinism my friend.

And no, I wouldn’t be “camped” and “not allowed to get away”. Even if I was KOS, where exactly am I going to be where groups of horde are going to camp me? It’s kinda hard to camp me inside BWL/AQ/ZG/Insert instance here. (My main is a 60 Priest, Epic tier2 geared, so good luck camping me with the legions of suck that are the horde).

What server DO you play on? I would be more than happy to own your face.

first of all I meant to post this in the community, and I apologise for using your own journal.

Secondly I agree that stupidity doesnt deserve a reward, however things were a little different when you were a new player, you didnt have to fuck him over, a simple 'shut up' /ignoreshadowofsun would suffice.

My main is a mage in full tier 1 / 2 equipment frost spec, and I play on the euro servers, that still doesnt negate the fact that treating people like shit who are 'inferior' to you is wrong, have some decency. Showing some more courtesy than totally ruining this guys gaming experience would have been the better option, and you probably know that, except your too '1337' to accept it. Telling him to fuck off probably would have been nicer, as unless the newbie clues up which seems doubtful then he will likely need to remake a character and start over.

He pays for the game as well as you do, does that give you the right to completely decimate his gaming experience?

The answer you are looking for, would be 'No'.

I would say that paying the same $15.00 a month that I do gives him he same opportunity to take advantage of dumb/noob players.

Just because he isn't able to do that, doesn't mean I shouldn't.

Again, the "if not everyone is able to do it, it isn't fair" attitude that your clearly expressing here is wrong.

Instead of just yelling "L2P" at him, and ignoring him, I gave him an experience he will never forget. Thus the weak learn lessons from the strong (in game).

I think the biggest lesson out of this is that you showed him how much of a jerk you were.

The guy may have been an annoying twit and I think ganking him in Gurubashi was a lessons-learned temporary annoyance, but telling him to set his hearthstone to Booty Bay was unnecessary and petty.
