This is a reversion of the original post. Pointing out the most important points of emhasiss. I'm going to highlight the most important part of my message. I've been pretty heavily involved in World of Warcraft. I've played enough of wow to know that the culture is twisted into something which is undesirable. Simply put, a certain portain (which seems to get larger by the day) of people just don't care about others in that game. And, I'm constantly shocked at the lack of maturity of its players. People simply are rude and disrespectful of their fellow players. Players are lacking in basic communication skills. Using words would be far better than one symbol communications. Using profanity rather than using words to express a persons feelings is also something which is common. At a certain point, I just had to step back and ask myself, "Do I really have to put up with this kind of treatment?" There's a growing trend in that game which has become more of a game "of me." People are in the game for themselves not to actually help and communicate the people who are they are with. You get a player who has certain gear and it seems like it gives them the right to be outright rude to other players. It's like they are handed a ticket or a pass to behave badly. You players with a little bit of gear and it gives them a right to have a "bad ass" attitude." After becoming weary of the behavior I've seen in a game like wow, Being able to solo some of the content in this UO game is calming. Not being forced to have to interact with the "bad ass" players of wow is something I find as a desirable trait of UO. I've never met so many rude people in UO as I have in wow. The power of the player by gear has not increased as dramatically in UO as in a game such as world of warcraft. It's amazing how much in WoW, poeple are scorned for not having the right gear or doing the right amount of dps. UO has fewer divisions between players based on their gear or their ability to pump out dps. UO is more of a game of having fun and winning encounters than personal glory or so-called achievements. Best of all, I don't have to log in EVERY SINGLE DAY just to make sure I'm keeping up with the rest of the players in a never-ending quest for more powerful gear. I did have top gear and top dps. At a certain point the culture of the game became unpalatable. I posted my basic message on the wow forums if that makes anyone else feel better.
