Elitist Jerks: Why we DON'T want YOU

Recommended Posts

Elitism. Everywhere in Runescape, elitism occurs. Speaking from a point of view of someone who generally has the upper hand in the 130+ bracket, I've complied a few reasons why, unlike most people(who, by the way happen to be lower leveled), think is wrong.

 

1. Experience. We've all heard that levels don't mean anything, and that intellect>combat levels. While I agree this is true, I don't see why someone can't be both high leveled and experienced. Pick two people off the streets of Runescape. One level 138 and one level 50. Ask them to explain to you how something like lootshare, the GE, or farming circuits work. Ask them which potion boosts herblore in Dungoneering. You'll find that most of the time a higher leveled person has much more intellect and is actually legally playing.

2. Its not right. I think this mainly comes from the illegal community of people under 13. After that I would think you would have realized that life isn't fair.

3. Private Chat: Friends. I don't want someone PMing me about how they need money, or a question they are too lazy to look up. I am the most lazy person in existence. If you won't look it up I won't answer.

 

Noobs can gtfo now, because I just ran out of prayer potions so I'm going to pay attention to the actual game.

 

There we go. My rant is done, so bring on the flame. Slayer is boring.

Dungeoneering isn't a skill.

Your title made me think you were going to rant about elitist high level players, but you ranted about noobs.

Lurn Enlisch. It arent taht herd.

 

1. Experience. We've all heard that levels don't mean anything, and that intellect>combat levels. While I agree this is true, I don't see why someone can't be both high leveled and experienced. Pick two people off the streets of Runescape. One level 138 and one level 50. Ask them to explain to you how something like lootshare, the GE, or farming circuits work. Ask them which potion boosts herblore in Dungoneering. You'll find that most of the time a higher leveled person has much more intellect and is actually legally playing.

 

Intelligence has nothing to do with how much information you know about a video game. Intelligence focuses around being able to take information, work with it, and learn from your experiences. Any half-wit with a few hours on his hands could learn what all the potions in Dungeoneering do. You can't take a low leveled person who has neither the time invested nor the levels required to perform a feat, and somehow judge his overall intelligence over a random factoid from a video game.

 

Also: Age =/= Level. Just because someone is low level doesn't make them a kid. As it turns out, everyone starts out as a low level, and some people don't have the time to get to high levels quickly.

 

And going off of that intellect bit, intelligence allows you to do things such as, you know, making an OP without sounding like a moron.

 

2. Its not right. I think this mainly comes from the illegal community of people under 13. After that I would think you would have realized that life isn't fair.

 

Well it makes sense. Using nonexistent evidence to back up a nonexistent point (literally).

 

3. Private Chat: Friends. I don't want someone PMing me about how they need money, or a question they are too lazy to look up. I am the most lazy person in existence. If you won't look it up I won't answer.

 

I agree. Stop PMing, and by PMing, I mean posting on these forums.

 

Noobs can gtfo now, because I just ran out of prayer potions so I'm going to pay attention to the actual game.

 

There we go. My rant is done, so bring on the flame. Slayer is boring.

Erm... yeah, so before you title your thread "Elitist Jerks" Helps to make sure you aren't making elitist rants, yeah?

Am I the only one who got the title?

 

Elitist Jerks: - this means they are speaking

 

Elitist Jerks: Why We dont want you.

 

This is from the elitist jerks point of view on why they dislike noobs.

 

Therefor the title made perfect sense (at least to me)

 

But on topic...

 

 

I agree that some people you need to avoid like the plague but this topic is pointless. Weve all dealed with these morons, ive dealed with 10 year olds and 30 year olds throughout my years of gaming. Age alone doesnt determine whether someone will be a jackass.

 

Also experience doesnt either, for example look at me, mostly lvl 70 skills yet im not different from someone with all 90's i just played less then they did. Yet elitist jerks (morons) think their better then me. Thats the fatal flaw with elitist jerks logic, your not better then people because your levels are higher. Your average level 80 is as smart (intelligence and game wise) as your average 130. They just havnt clicked the same monster or same object 100k times yet.

 

But on that topic, you clicking 100k more times on the same item does not make you any smarter then me btw. It probably makes you fatter then me, and less social then me though. Who knows it might even make you dumber then me as well.

 

Im also older then a lot of people higher leveled the me, so therefor your argument is completely flawed

How is slayer even relevant to the topic at hand?

See, when you add that magic phrase "for the record", everything will be relevant no matter what the topic is about.

 

But really, the OP mentioned that slayer is boring on his last sentence.

ELITISM IS ASOCIAL! simple as that, we should strive to be a social being and not act this bad! I'm sick of you elitism people who really really are no lifing -dare I say it- noobs who think they know everything..

 

Yet have you played since runescape classic? - Do you know [garden tool] the actual prayer system works -and spend countless of hours verifying that this was correct, have you figured out as first person how to beat the gluttonous behemot? - Have you experience with the old pkers trying to kill you while doing abbys runs to get rc 91? Have you experience with castle wars and own a silver set for years? Have you (in the past) helped building scripts to find the best PC worlds? Do you own every barbarian assault item? Have you ever discovered new big dungeons & quests without any guide available anywhere? Have you taken the time to finish difficult riddles, without help of sites like tip.it - and actually providing tip.it with the information you retrieved?

 

I don't think so, and yes above was something I did do... You probably are a new "az-produkt" only doing something as simple -though admittedly effecient- as possible. Something a simple robot could do equally good, if not better. What did those levels bring you in real experience? And evenso: as I shown in the above combat is only a very small part of runescape's experience, yet you're completely biased towards this..

I don't blame you, I blame the last 2 years of updating all depending -and giving- combat experience.. Ever since the wilderness was removed the majority of the updates were based on combat. This wouldn't be bad, if this stupid "elite" wouldn't force their way on others so much if they want to skill. (dungeoneering a prime example).

Elitism outside of Dungeoneering is pointless and arrogant.

lol a 138 teaming on bandos.

 

Edit: but point is valid. If I was 138 and killing corp beast i would want 1-3 other 138s to help me instead of 4-6 110's

Nope edited my post too.

 

I suppose in the realm of dungeoneering and boss monster hunting, elitism is valid. In that same breath maybe with certain mini games too (levels dont equate knowledge they do equate power, so PC might make sense but trouble brewing not so much.

 

However other then that elitism has no place, a 138 is not any more knowledgeable then your average level 80.

 

Which is what OP was originally complaining about

No, the OP wasent complaining about anything. Infact he said a 138 is almost certainly more knowledgable than a level 50.

 

While true, combined with the generally idiotic nature of said OP, as well as the elitism so rampant in his posts, doesnt really give him much credibility.

Uhm care to explain why it is valid, why should you go for "best experience" or "best profit", instead of "most fun"..

 

 

You know it's annoying if people ignore my post, and simply say "it's valid'.

Not sure what point the OP is going for here, but it does somewhat segway into another obvious point I've noticed. As the game continues to get easier and Jagex finds new ways to hold our collective hand, the disparity between the ambiguous level 50 and level 130+ continues to blur. Going back wow, at least 6, 7 years at this point there was an expectation of maturity, not so much intellect, from higher level players. Sure they were at times difficult to snare into conversation, but you always knew what to expect, and it made sense on most levels.

 

Now, anyone's guess is as good as mine. Just one example was a level 110 begging for 100gp at a sparsely-occupied bank. Times are definitely changin'
