    All Battle.net players are Scruffy looking Nerf Herders until proven otherwise

    Seriously.. I was going through games on my newer Necromancer, more than 6 people exploded with profanity and throwing out all the variations of "Noob" just for entering a game.

    Almost the same way on WarCraft 3 games, you don't follow the strict style of the majority or you make one too many workers and you're flamed.

    I don't know if it's just battle.net, or gamers in general, -Since I only play on Battle.net- but everyone is a Scruffy looking Nerf Herder until proven otherwise. >.>

    Sorry, just had to get that out. >_<

    I understand your need to rant/vent, but in the future please keep that sort of language off the forums, use a less abrasive word.

    Try words like immature, adolescent, ranting, abbusive, childish and prone to lying.

    You are right though: Without any social control the true beast in people becomes apparent. I really liked WoW where there was at least some social control. If you behaved like an b-net kiddie (this doesn't mean the underage people playing bnet, but you can guess what i do mean) word would get out and people would refus to play with you and you would'n't get into any proper guild.

    I don't play WoW, but if it is a more controlled and civil environment I might look into it.

    clever editing has made this thread both more entertaining and confusing.

    But I'm not sure it's just people on B.net that are the problem. It seems endemic, or systemic, or maybe both.

    its kind of like highschool. if you're not in the popular crowd people will make fun of you.

    same thing can be applied to this, except the people are losers who think playing hammerdins and having alot of expensive equipment is super-duper-cool. even though its really not.

    ps anyone ever hear of the band nerf herder ? they're funny. they wrote the themesong for the buffy the vampire slayer series !

    in highschool even the popular people got made fun of. Everyone did, that's what high school is for.

    I played WoW for two years, and it is every bit as bad as battle.net... and every other multiplayer gaming community out there.

    If you don't want to deal with that, stick to solo play.

    I have to agree with Synx. Every online gaming service I've ever used has been full of Scruffy Looking Nerf Herders (SLNH). But, there are enough people on Bnet who do nice things that it's still a worthwhile service. I've been the beneficiary of enough free rushes, giveaways, and quest assists to have at least a tiny shred of faith in Bnet. Plus, if you're really looking for civil society within Diablo II, forums like this are the places to find it.

    Was this post to prove that you are or aren't a scruffy looking Nerf herder?

    Which I actually do. The only reason to do that on bnet is trading and I'm nearly never trading in the bnet channels.
