You've played here for six years Goku, met thousands of people and not made 1 friend. What does that say about you?
It's true that I don't seek internet friends, my Facebook is people I actually know and care about IRL. I could just as easily turn that question around and ask why you spend so much time socially with people online instead of in the real world?
When I go to the pub, I go to the pub. When I play games, I play games. My idea of merging the two is getting people around for "Magic The Gathering", "Settlers of Catan" or "Carcassonne"; It isn't to sit on IRC with a can of beer. I got the literal "Game of Thrones" last week which I am having people around to play tomorrow
Perhaps my problem is just having a more reasonable view of what antics to expect in an online game, with drama, banter, rivalries and other fun. You've seen eUK die as all of that had to be stopped as fragile egos couldn't cope with my brand of mild drama entertaining everyone and had to ruin it with a counter attack of fucking stalking IRL! Now it's just beyond boring.
It's a game based around a media you fool, you yourself take advantage of that with your own articles. I can't really comphrehend why you have such a problem with what I did with the media other than you seeing me as a threat. You'll roll out of the old cheating lines but I did that stuff in Asia as part of a team since it was multi infested anyway. Lighten up Iain?
