This community complains far too much.

I've been playing this game for about a month and I've put in around 130 hours of gameplay so far. I've experienced the majority of "cheap" losses (Ganked, Hornet, Magic, Spears, and everything else) and I've definitely moaned and complained over these things in my limited time on this game...


Although I'm growing entirely bored and tired of everyone calling everything cheap. Every single day I receive around 10 messages from people complaining about various techniques (Most of which I'm not even doing) as I'm sure you all do too. I'm not sure if this is unique to this game or all PvP style games have this obscene amount of stupidity. I've noticed a lot of this complaining has even made it to the forums as well. It's pretty disgusting to see people complain about certain weapons being "cheap", "ogm spears are so cheap".

In closing:

There's plenty of legitimate things to complain about in this game and please start using common sense when you complain because everytime we complain about things like "omg spears r op" it hurts the legitimacy of complaints about actual broken game mechanics.

Agreed, that people simple don't know how to play. Actualy, it's pretty easy to kill Spear users... But as you said, everyone has they own play style.

Charred Ring kicks are clearly OP. Fire damage from your foot? Come on.

Very true. I have a build centered around it and the chaos notched whip.

I've logged probably some where in the nieghborhood of 1000 hours in this game and I've never heard complaining about weapons...especially on this board, perhaps I just missed them. The only things I complain about and always will are those whom attack while spawning and those who lag stab. There's nothing that pissed me off than getting back stabbed while facing someone. Ganking doesn't really bother me anymore, I just drop my armor and run around naked just to piss them off. If its 1 on 1 than I feel anything goes including wotg spamming...I don't like getting killed by it but it is an ability ones build has. Weapons I have no issue with at at.

Perhaps I've stumbled upon the rare instances, I'm not sure.

I don't fault people for "lagstabbing". It's not like they're actually teleporting or anything, it just looks that way. They have to pull off a legitimate backstab in any case. I think the only thing that bothers me about it is that the technique is used more by people who want to pop in and win than people who actually want a good fight.
