A new gung-ho staff member asked why we couldn't get more fleet STFs going like we used to,several ideas came out,some good but they all danced around that huge white elephant in the living room no one is willing to discuss.
I brought it up and you would have thought that I asked the 1st officer's wife (anti-dps) if I could sacrifice her baby in Satan's name! These are quotes from my fleet's forum.
But I've heard several complaints and seen where some players are pushing DPS. And if that becomes a normal thing in AD I won't be on many teams since I don't have 10k DPS. I am happy with my ship and my build.
I just can't sit by when anytime I'm trying to help someone I get stifled ,whenever it's brought up in general fleet chat or Staff chat,I get smart ass commits from other staff members,I'll be damned if I'm going to let ignorance rule the day and them dictate what I talk about.I never push it on anyone,I keep an open door to those who want to learn.
What happened to this game being about fun. Now to many focus on DPS and not team work."
It's bad enough that they wallow in their stupidity,but when they pass their bad ideas to new members who struggle with limited resources wasting those precious resources acting on bad ideas,it turns my stomach and after I give good advice,this is what I hear........
And if that becomes a normal thing in Access Denied fleet, I won't be on many teams since I don't have 10k DPS. I am happy with my ship and my build
Well,it It already is a normal thing,that's why STFs are not run in fleet channel like they used to be was one of my responses,almost told her to shove it & I wouldn't have her on team anyway,getting carried away,some piled on me in this thread.
I guess you guys have heard this all before,looking for some positive feedback so I can help the one's who want to learn and show people who are anti-dps that we aren't some elitist monsters,well maybe some of you guys are :p
I read somewhere,I can't recall where,Ryan compared getting better dps to working his golf game,always striving to get better.I guess what I'm asking for is how to approach these people,or if there's any helpful links like Ryan's I just touched on,thanks for any feedback,still stuck in the 48k channel
