Ok so i will probably make a few people mad with this but here goes. First of all I have played on and off for about 2 years and I really love the game and community. I usually try to be respectful to others and if i defend too hard repeatedly against someone i try to ask them if they would like me to back off. I dont always remember to ask but try to. I also have a tendency to let my enemies live when i can kill them. Not always of course. That being said I can be a jerk sometimes and i have my annoying habits. I will freely admit that but i will also admit that the same think can be said about most everyone in this game. We all have things that annoy each other. I used to get so annoyed when i would get off of work and log into the game for an hour or so to try to finish a sector just to get jumped by 2 or more ppl. Seemed like i couldnt get anything done. I had to learn to adapt my playstyle but more importantly my attitude to the game. I have Ragequit the game so i am as guilty as others about that but i finally learned to just accept the game as that..just a game and try not to get too emotionally invested in it. It is hard sometimes but here i am rambling about crap that has absolutely no relation to the original topic i wanted to talk about. When i first started playing the game and for rounds I hated xeen. He really came off as an obnoxious self centered prick to me and i couldnt stand him. Even when i was on his team i felt that way. I cant count the number of times i would join a map he was playing on and he would immediately leave so he could go solo farm xp. That being said i have noticed a change in him or perhaps he has always been the same but i was just so consumed by my hate for the guy i couldnt see it at the time. Xeen still does things that annoy me. I wont lie about that but i can also admit that there is not a single person in this game that i have not learned more from than him. Both as an enemy and a teammate. As an enemy he never took it easy on me which forced me to become a better player. I also realized that as long as i didnt trash talk him then he wouldnt start talking trash about me either. These last few rounds though i have had the chance to be on his team and i have learned even more from him. If i have a question and need it answered, he answers. And not just some simple explanation he actually goes into detail about it. And not just me either, he does that for every member of his team. When a new guy logs on he is usually the first person to say hi to them and start talking to them and explaining things. And pvp...well hell its no secret he loves it. As an enemy you can alway expect him to fight you and as an ally you can always expect him to help you. I have lost count on how many times either myself or another teammate has been attacked in a sector and xeen has left whatever map he has been in to go and help us. If you ask him for help he will give it. Does he sometimes lose his cool and come across rude? heck yeah but as i said we all have our flaws. I strongly feel that all people see is the negative about the dude and cant get past said flaws and see what he has actually done for the game and the players. There are some who might say that by writing this post i am just trying to suck up to the guy but i honestly could care less about wether he likes or hates me. I will continue to play the game the same way. If on opposing sides i will do what i can to kill him and if on the same side i will help him. I am not good with words or saying things like i want them to come out but i would say that. So lets look at the mvp thing for a sec. Requirements are... 1.Longtime veteran players who have been active on multiple servers over the last two years...check 2.-Honorable, courteous play, socially positive in chat, helpful to new players...Honorable..i would say yes. Courteous play...in the past i woulda said no but these last few rounds i would say yes. Socially positive in chat....ok i can see that as a no for the most part. Helpful to new players...Yep got that covered. I say if there is a list of ppl that should qualify for the mvp award he has to be on it. There are others who i feel should also be on it as well but thats another topic for another day. I have rambled on more than i really wanted to but the main point in the post was that even though he has his flaws he isnt as bad as ppl make him out to be and has greatly been more of a help for the game than a hurt for it. But we all have our own opinions and feelings and thats ok. Just felt like putting mine out there.
