At some point or another during your time in Azeroth and beyond, you will no doubt have come across an elitist — someone who thinks they are far superior to you for whatever reason. During my time playing, I have come across many such people — hell, it’s one of the reasons I started this blog. What follows is a small description of each of the different kinds of elitist I have been unfortunate to meet.
THE PvP ELITIST (AKA ‘THE DOUCHEBAG’)
This person thinks they are better than you simply because they have a set of the best PvP gear, with all the proper gems and enchants. They will often spend their time outside of Stormwind or Orgrimmar, challenging anyone who gets close to them, and they will harass anyone with the gall to turn them down.
The thing I hate the most about these people is their stubborn nature — they will simply refuse to leave you alone if you tell them that you don’t want a duel. More than once, they’ve gone on to insult my gear, me as an individual, my family, and so forth.
The easiest way to deal with these morons? Ignore, plain and simple.
THE INSTANCE ELITIST (AKA ‘THE RUSHER’)
Just because you’ve done this instance a million times, that doesn’t give you the right to act like you’re a gaming god. Some people in the group may be experiencing the instance for the first time, so constantly snapping at them to ‘hurry the fuck up’ isn’t exactly making them feel welcome.
People play at their own pace, so let them. If you don’t like it, go and find another group.
THE GEAR ELITIST (AKA ‘THE HYPOCRITE’)
These people will insult you for not having decent gear — often conveniently forgetting that they were in the same positon themselves at one point.
I don’t think I need to say much more than this.
This is all I can think of at the moment, but chances are I will create a new post as and when I come across any new types of elitist.
