I'm really tired of it, it sickens me.
High rated players who feel they're better than everybody else so they don't bother responding to low rated players asking for help on what to do. Do you realize how gratifying it is for someone to sincerely say thank you? It's a great feeling.
Even after the video I made, and bolding text, asking people that if they need any help, do not hesitate to PM me. And yet they're still scared. Or they have to add "please respond" in the PM. Or when they whisper me in game and tell me that they're really surprised I responded to them.
Just because your number is higher in an internet game, doesn't mean your a better person then they are. Please, if you get a little nubby asking for your help, just help them out and answer a few questions, it might mean the world to them.
Please don't continue this stereotype.
Agree 100%. Though, all I talk about is interface & addon shit now :P Always answer everything, yea. Also as an aside, it's the main reason I hate text messages. I'd compulsively respond to all the trivial shit, and there'd be a never-ending cycle of stupid.
I've responded to every single PM back in the day, but right now I'm just too tired of getting 20 PMs asking the most simple stuff ( like should a shadowpriest ignore haste on his gear ? lolwat ), it has nothing to do with me being a douche or anything like that - it's just way too tiresome writing a wall of text explaining stuff you've already explained before.
What you do when you get too many stupid questions is just make a video or tutorial explaining it, and then point a link. Works like a fuggin' charm :) (also, you can do this for $$, hehe).
Though yea, if the base of the questions you're fielding becomes too wide, then it's just not feasible to answer everything.
