damn dawg, take breath and relax. [...] hope you find some peace my friend
That's the problem with today's internet: most of the people see a "fuck" or whatever curse word in a post, their "people advocate" instincts kick in and start scolding the "angered" user, advising him to more calmer pastures. Well.. if there's freedom of speech and we're all entitled to our opinions, cuz that's fair, here's mine: I don't need your fucking advice.
Of course people have their own reasons for doing whateverthefuck makes their soul jiggle and psyche feel cozy and warm inside. Of course you wouldn't talk to me about the meaning of all of this, how it makes you feel, what's your end goal with pure cosmetics and so on. You would talk to a dear friend or your priest in the confessional about it. Cuz that's also the trust level people portray online. Always shit-posting and making fun of stuff cuz "the world is cruel and too serious". But when I come in and say "go fuck yourselves", you forget all about that. You turn into Dalai fucking Llama and guide me to spiritual peace. Why? Is there absolution in expressing yourselves as calm, peaceful people? You fucking know you aren't that way. Wanna discuss degrees of calm or anger?.. Bottom line: everything that someone posts is subjective. I have an opinion, you have one. You should stick to impersonal talk and refrain from giving advice. In a similar manner in which my post came across to you, so did yours seem
to me. I bolded that word cuz you fuckwads never ASK, you DICTATE from assumptions. "Hey, SunBeam, are you pissed on something? Let us know." - no -> "You should be like this, do this and that." Interpret it however you want, just don't fucking dare telling me I'm seeking attention. Remember I posted something, you replied to that. You could've easily said nothing, so anything that goes past these 2-3 posts isn't attention seeking. It's a dialogue now. Wanna continue, let me know. Else, we stop here and mind our rants as if nothing happened.
Back on track, here's a question: you've never been told by someone in your life a certain thing that helped you not go through the same process as they did? Like for example if I tell you - "Outfits, weapons, all cosmetic crap in the game doesn't add any value to your gameplay." - would you believe me? Or would you still want to see for yourself, to say after 1-2 weeks or months "meh, he was right"? That's my point here. Aside from cycling them out and feeling some sort of VIP-feeling that you've cheated some system and "fuck you, Ubisoft, I got them for free", there's nothing else to it. And that feeling I just mentioned lasts.. how long? Not to mention with the current adjustments in place, you lose said Helix items every time you go to main menu, then back in-game. So you've what.. traded the grind of getting them from gameplay or paying for them.. for the grind of always having to re-get them every time you go into game world? Super trade
But then again, who am I to tell you what to do with your time, right? In short: I shouldn't dare tell you that. But at the same time, when people want some table update, I should do it for free.. cuz fuck my time. Right? My time isn't valuable, yours is. See the perspective? I know I've jumped from one subject to another, I was just trying to get a point across.
This is just a discussion, no one takes it personally, no one fights. I hope you (plural) get that. Don't like it, don't post. But instead of that, when you don't like someone's attitude, you post portraying as the opposite "good guy", just to unconsciously feel good about yourself and how the public will perceive you. Good beats bad in every fairy tale.
Just some cents on online human psychology. How a lot of shit is paradoxical and hypocritical.
