There was a lot of pointless descriptive language in the article that just sort of added flounce... I'm not quite sure what the writer was aiming to achieve in the article other than

*people pick on roleplayers
*people who roleplay arent all male, or geeky apperanced but are mostly
*relationships happen from RP
*drama happens
*pick on bots instead

uhm... did I miss a point somewhere?

I roleplay because it makes me laugh, why is that reason never in those articles?

Apparently its always something to do with me being a sad basterd who has a horrible RL Razz (not true in my case, though I do not deny that there must be certain people out there that do have this problem, however a minority)

Everybody needs somebody to hate.

So, in WoW, this would mean that Raiders hate RPers, RPers hate Raiders and PVPers hate everyone?

Not so. Since he showed he could be a decent human being I just hate the part of him that acts like a tard/t every now and then.

No conversations with role players in LotrO? I'd have thought that place was the ultimo wet dream to role-play in Tolkien's world.

I play an old man from Dale that mocks Rohan and Gondor, cause they aren't dragon slayers, innit.

Amusing style of roleplay, though interesting comment overall as all I have heard about LotRO is that it'snota good placeto play or RP.

I was thinking while laid in bed last night, surely an article on how much WoW players get laid with each other would be more interesting than pigeon holing RPers.

I speak for myself, and some of those around me... but geez, its like 6 degrees of seperation but with 2 or 3 degrees each and each pertaining to lovin' on SSL..... must be like that on every server, its better than match.com!

Could have been worse, you could have started talking about RPer's favourite positions!
