Imagine you, proud majestic Human Warrior with your "Kingslayer" title, BiS gear, legendary weapon, retard sparkle horse riding majestically across the plains. Suddenly an orc rogue appears but no worry he is a lowly level 5, 75 levels below you. You scoff, when all of a sudden he saps you. You are stunned both literally and figuratively. How is it possible that such a scrub can stop you? Then as you recover, an undead appears, this one a L15 mage and with a wave of his hands you find you can't even target him. "How can this be happening to me!" you exclaim, but you have no fear as they are doing 3 damage each not even marking your health. Then 600 more turn up, none over level 20, pound on you until you fall beaten and broken, you die, they steal all your gear, give you a 3 week res sickness, steal your corpse, piss on it, post in trade how much you suck until everything you have ever worked for has gone, every dream shattered, and you are a broken and broke shadow of your former self wondering what the fuck just happened. If you are really unlucky, the original level 5 Rogue also has an alt and has stolen all your guild bank. Welcome to EVE.

Men of war have long known that warriors must often abandon those verities they defend. Peace, human kindness, love... for they hold no meaning to the enemy. And so, to win, do we become what we despise... and despise what we become?

I love it. It is very true as well. WoW players have the sense of entitlement that they must be able to see all content and beat everything.

lol that is epic. And so very true. I've tried to explain it to people and they don't get it. Watched my roomate get pissed off over losing a destroyer to a canflipper because they wouldn't listen when I told them the ship wasn't set up for combat or insured. Did they listen? No.:@ Part of the reason I left WoW is because once you get to endgame and beat it, there's not much left. Endless repetition of daily quests, battlegrounds, etc... It got old.
