The large majority of Kzinti members joined before we were #1, or even in the top three, so to say everyone has joined for a medal is factually incorrect.
Can't say i agree with this. But whatever...
Zyx...once again i have NFI what you are talking about. I am puzzled once again though at your interest in such a topic. I know i don't comment or enter into topics about fly fishing cause i do not and never have attempted the sport.
My final thoughts on this whole debate boils down to this, since if stay too long, the nice hat will come off and i just cant be bothered with that.
There are two camps.....the normals and the plastic faces.
The normals care not that they are not #1, or the biggest scorers or have the most of this and the best of that. They are proud when they do achieve these things but tend to stay quiet unless provoked.
The plastic faces care so much for the glory of every possible achievement they will do just about anything to get it, and then proceed to brag about their achievement but are quick to forget the how or the why. And they are not worried about using subterfuge either. (though it failed...and yes, i do know all about it.)
There have been, and are still members of both camps spread across many empires and in fact the GC2 boards as a whole.
I think GW had a point....The game used to be fun.....
Trolls, pretenders, plebes, false pretenses, elitism.....You'll find them all here.
