While milling about on my Level 21 Dark Iron Dwarf Shaman, Kazotsky, I soon realised that I was bored out of my skull. With this in mind, I made use of the /bored emote… which is when all the trouble started.
Almost immediately after using this emote, I was challenged to a duel by a Level 68 Warrior; DuelResponse blocked the request, but that didn’t stop them from sending more.
Oh, look, it’s yet another high(ish) level person with nothing better to do than pick on those who are of a lower level.
Seishinya’s Guide To Twink Spotting:
- Are they in the 20-29 level bracket?
- Are they in Goldshire?
- Do they have heirlooms?
If the answer to any of the above is ‘YES,’ then congratulations on finding yourself a twink!
Oh, you poor thing; I never realised that levelling to 68 was such hard work. Maybe you should take a break from WoW and take a nice hot bath, followed by a lovely cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows.
It amazes me how many people seem to think that there is an option to decline duel requests in the game settings.
The fact that there isn’t is the main reason I created DuelResponse in the bloody first place!
Pay attention to that blocked request, because it will be important later.
Of course you don’t have it; the last thing a toxic elitist scumbag like yourself needs is an anti-duel addon.
If you want power, buy a battery.
Ah, and now here is the second idiot in this story; this Priest – who can’t tell the difference between ‘luck’ and ‘look’ – appears out of nowhere to insult me for no reason other than the fact I’m not transmogged.
You never mentioned another character, so I assume you are referring to losing on the Warrior you’re on now… in which case, ’70 levels LOWER than I was’ would still equal a negative number.
(Also, I never did seem them duel the Priest.)
*NEE NAW* *NEE NAW* *NEE NAW*
Uh-oh, the Transmog Police are here to interrogate me for my crimes against fashion!
Idiot number three makes an appearance now; this person has a lot of twinks, with names equal to the level they are.
They’re an arrogant, elitist twat, and I do not care for them at all.
Meanwhile, I am dealing with the Priest, while the Warrior continues their sob story about the many times they’ve lost.
No, the mage was just better than you; in fact, they were probably Arcane specced. Goodness knows I’ve seen Arcane Mages making mincemeat of any who dare to challenge them.
‘I accept, but I don’t hurt them.’
Motherfucker, that is one of the biggest lies ever told in WoW. I’ve seen people promise not to hurt a low level, then immediately one-shot them when the duel begins.
Me? I don’t accept duels from anyone, so I don’t care.
At this point, I log onto my Druid and challenge the Warrior; I quickly hop into Cat Form and engage Prowl, but they somehow manage to see me (I guess Blizzard changed how stealth works against friendly players). They didn’t accept my challenge – surprise, surprise – and I logged onto my Rogue, just int time to see this.
If insulting people for not following made-up rules about transmog is you being ‘nice,’ I’d hate to see you when you’re angry.
Mature Language Filter exists for a reason, mate.
Nice, Seishinya, real mature.
Remember that challenge from earlier that I said was important? Did you see how it came AFTER I told Seishinya that I was using an anti-duel addon?
The mere fact that their challenges kept getting instantly declined should have been some indication that I didn’t want to duel, but clearly that was too much for their feeble brain to comprehend.
Hence why I’m calling them out on their hypocrisy.
Once again, you – a Level 68 – challenged my Level 21. You had better gear than my Shaman, and you kept on challenging me despite me telling you I had an addon declining them all.
Also, you’re calling me childish? Who’s the one that said they’d report me for swearing, when there’s an in-game feature which lets you censor it?
Who’s the one who refused to listen when I said ‘anti-duel addon?’
Who’s the one who started all of this shit?
I’m completely ignoring what the Priest is saying by now; I’m more focused on kicking the warrior’s arse with logic.
And again with the ‘I wouldn’t hit the shaman back’ nonsense. You and I both know you would have hit me with everything, had I been stupid enough to actually accept your challenge in the first place.
At this point I get fed up with trying to talk to this person, and put them on ignore. However, that last thing they yelled made me laugh.
‘Duels are not always about EGO, sheesh!’
This coming from an arrogant little sod who wanted so desperately to duel my lower level, and then insulted me for doing the exact same thing to them? If that’s not you trying to feed your ego, I don’t know what is.
Anyway, we’re done here; I sincerely hope you decided to follow the advice I sent after I ignored you, and checked out this blog.
Perhaps next time you’ll fucking listen when someone says they don’t want to duel?
I hope not, though; this story was one screenshot short of being listed as a Legendary Fail. Should we meet again, that will almost certainly happen.
Peace out, punk.
