So today I was talking to some co-workers about gaming and it turns out that 2 of them play WoW, lineage and star craft. They were amazed that I didn't play those games, to the point of disbelief. How could I possibly play games and NOT play WoW or lineage???

When I mentioned that I played Eve the conversation went something like this;

Them: "oh...I'm sorry that game sucks."

Me: "That's OK, I understand that you guys don't have the mental capacity to play Eve, so it's cool."

Them: "What??"

Me: "Hey, I am sure pedophilia is allowed in..some countries???"

Them: "Oh so it's like that huh?"

Me: " Yeah, it's like that. Oh hey, do you know why there are so many gold farmers in WoW and Linage? Because not even the macro needs to think to play. HAHAHAHA"

Them: Stunned silence

At this point I walked off smiling, knowing that I just verbally pew pewed them and they had nothing to say.

Just thought I would share my laugh of the day.

TL;DR Eve > WoW/Lineage

This thread is taking me back to the aion forums..

@ op, they probably just thought you were a ****, not so much that you verbally pwned them...

Also, I don't think Eve botters, i.e. go to asteroid site, shoot target, go to other asteroid site, etc. is much more complicated than a WoW bot...

loser.

TL;DR - OP doesn't know that EVE has more bots than WoW/Lineage nowdays.

OP compares games to pedophilia and makes a complete fool of himself in the process.

wow, while i can understand how this story may have come off. I can't believe that there are so many wow and lineage supporters here.

What happened to my forums? Shocked

Nope, they were like have a conversation and he was like you are pedo, and they were like stunned and I was like over using the word like.

Point is you are a pedophile.

I tried for a while finding something to write that would match the OPs wit and intellimugence.

I gave up and watched a video of some kittens instead.

OP you tried to hard and only made yourself look an elitist "my game is better than your game" snob, if in the future you need to verbally pew pew WoW players the best approach is to just say "you play WoW?" and give a brief, quiet but slightly audible chuckle as you walk away.

Their own insecurities about playing an interactive online cartoon that 7 year olds can and do play will do the rest and their embarrassment will be focused quietly inwards instead of focused on you being a jerk.

All you (OP) have shown about you is that you are stupid and arrogant.

All i understood now is that they have the best reasons for not playing EVE and consider this game has something for deviants and completly stupid to do, thanks to you.

A true ccp fan don't brag,they just send out the game title and web address,give a quick summary of what it's about and move on to other subjects. I mean,who has time to brag when your too busy thinking about combat strategies and business moves offline to employ and test out when you get back ingame.

Get the **** away from L2. It used to be a great game!
And yes, pedophilia is allowed in Neverland.

Playing Eve doesnt mean you are intelligent. Its a video game. You HAVE TO stop stroking the ego guys.

And even worse, telling others that they are not intelligent because they dont play Eve? Very Happy

The reality of it is that Eve attracts a certain kind of players due to its content and play style, not because its particularly difficult to learn. Most players do nothing but play Eve in exactly the same way as WoW works... collecting virtual stuff and virtual rewards. Its fun but I dont think it qualifies as some kind of tool to see who is intelligent. Not at all.
