So I was reading MMO gypsy again and this time about “on wearing masks” A quote from Oscar Wilde made me think:
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth
Well u see one of my best MMO friends in the picture above so u can understand my feelings? A vampire in a quite high vampire stage in Elder Scrolls Online D:
Tho this is the sweetest man (at least I thought so!;) who listen to my sorrows irl and have endless patience with my “snail questing”… But maybee he´s just waiting for the right moment to take a juicy bite of my neck? :S [edit: this is a joke ofc! He is amazing and havent got a bad bone in his body <3 ]
I took the bartles test about a year ago after doing warfronts in Rift (pvp) solely for months. Of course i came out as a “killer” in that test. But that wasnt the true me. Not irl and not online. It was just what I was at that point in my life and gaming. When i started playing ArcheAge I realised im as far from a “killer” u can be.
I would of course try to kill players in a warfront environment. But I would never kill a player who was farming or questing and didnt attack me first, never ever. But that didnt came out in that test, so its a flaw sort of. Im sure if i did the test again i would come out as socializer and explorer. Tho the page is so slow I cant reach it so I cant be bothered but after playing ArcheAge im very sure who I am and not:)
Im also sure that a lot of people who loves pvp just do it to let out some steam and relax for a while. Most of them surely are wonderful people in real life. But then there is trolls and hackers…. they are a different sort…
