you sure are a veteran in being annoying.

Practiced in Co? If that is the thing you wish to practice then I feel sorry for you.

imo 1 year isn't a long experience.

I am in agreeance with you.
I find it hard to class anyone a vet of this game who joined post 2008.

fine, It is your opinion. I do not argue with your right to decide in your mind.

however, someone who only played the year of 2004 is not a veteran according to you. I just disagree.

Panda DOES consider some who played just a year a veteran :

Because they never knew what lvling a char actually means. Everything after 2008 decemberish when talis came out, is not considered playing the game at all. I play since the days we had to actually grind for xp. Now you can sit in tc, do arena, do events, starter bound quests, .. aka get major xp while doing nothing. Unlike the old days where 1 exp balls worth of xp was godlike. Dis city was the greatest of events, biggest rewarding quest. Everyone came, never ending pile of people before the npc at the time it started. Now you are lucky on 2.0 if you get past the flanks. Classic makes it to pluto but soon enough that too will go away.

I mean, some people wouldn't care about doing dis since there are plenty of ways to get xp for them apart from dis. Flame lit for example, ruined gw completely. At royalty we still have an awesome gw, however the world chat gets spammed with "open gates ***ers, we wne do flame lit" by random noobs. GW is seen as a big fat 12 xp ball reward instead of the thing it really represents. Being the top guild.

doc your ignorance knows no limits. Sure those that started at 2009 can gather some experience, learn something about tq because of your 1k posts a month complaining about tq, but they will never be a veteran in the eyes of the real veterans.

Those that never knew the agony of lvling to 130 will never know the horrors that co had, the competition, the happyness when you reached something. Now its .. yay 130.. again. Back then it was like "I heard someone on server xx got 130!" "really? sweet, I'd like to be 130" ..

Panda the snobish person says those who started in 2009 will never be a veteran " eyes of the real veterans."


i think some have already disagreed with him on that !

He says they cant ever be called vets, ( even if they play for 10 more years ).

My post was deleted, I guess that means I fail. These forums used to be cool, just like this game. So I guess I will state when I started playing, yet again. 2003 or 2004, the game had only been released a few weeks prior to my joining. So.....one or the other, I just can't remember.

If my posts get deleted for speaking my mind, and or the truth, then heck....why not just take away television, internet, the right to express your sexuality, religion, telephones, public assembly, non-work related conversation, literature, and all other forms of entertainment. Then nobody will be offended by anything. Success!


*Edit!*

I would like to add that I understand both sides of this argument. People that have played in the last few years have yet to experience true challenge when it comes to conquer, they possibly never will.

That being said, to say that someone who played for a year in 2004-2005 is a veteran, but someone who played a year in 2008-2009 is not....is just plain silly! Are the veterans of WW1 not really veterans because WW2 was harder? Or vice versa? I don't mean veterans in the military sense, its just an example, maybe not the perfect one :P

Yes, a veteran is a veteran. Even if the game changes.

Veterans of 2004 are veterans -- of 2004. Vererans of the current game version -- are veterans of the current game version.




A veteran is a veteran.

This forum is owned by TQ/NetDragon, or what ever name they want to hide beneath to avoid lawsuits. They can curtail any truth they want, but eventually it will come back to hit them in the wallet.
