Quoted from "4964871;J Eberle.9312:"

I am a very seasoned pugeoneer.

Where do I even kittening begin?
Where does one start with what appears to be the decline of the species?
Keep in mind that this is the place that I need, this is my therapy after performing countless surgeries, many of which were sadly unsuccessful and resulted in the loss of the patient. It's very emotional ok.

First I'm going to outline the source of the disease. Then we'll move on to susceptibility, disease vectors, early symptoms and treatment. Keep in mind that the further a patient is into the disease, the more terminal it is which is why I've lost countless people on the operating table that is zerk only LFG pugging.


Many people, including myself from time to time, have a hard time comprehending how a patient's logic becomes so twisted. What was one thinking when he traited strength in numbers and placed signet of judgement on his bar? Well I'm here to tell you the sad truth. Many don't think much past 'this sounds good and I like the idea of it' and this is something that you will find commonly in new players. That's fine. The problems are the ones that have been around a long time, and continue to think this way. How did it get this way for them? Well it started with that mentality, and then it stopped there. They did not progress. Much like an underdeveloped fetus, this is the extent of their abilities. They have and always will, play whatever makes them feel special and good, even if it is clearly a detriment to the team. I call this foggy eye syndrome, their eyes are so clouded with snowflakes that they cannot see the destruction they are causing around them with their headshot rifle, staff guardian builds etc. They will also happily join meta only parties and insist they are contributing, often convincing themselves that they are playing the biggest and most important role in the party and/or carrying zerk bads hard.

Then you have the people I like to call metabaddles. They got their build off metabattle and haven't bothered to think about if it's actually good or not. While metabattle is currently (trying?) to correct their awful dungeon builds, some are still out of date and sadly once a person becomes infected via metabattle, they don't return to the site to see if there's a better build or an update. So you have people from aeons ago running these awful builds, thinking they're doing the right thing, and because these builds with awful traits and weapon sets had zerker gear, they think this is the best build possible and really good for zerk only/meta only parties. When questioned, they become immediately defensive and start claiming that metabattle is the one true god and will be kitten ed if anyone insults their prized deity. Concurrently we have the youtube 'community' who jump onto any 'popular' channel and immediately think that because a build has lots of likes and views it must be showcasing the best, most efficient build out there, I mean come on, since when can lots of people be wrong together?!! Jonestown - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As for vectors, along with the sources we also have word of mouth. This is especially prevalent in large guilds guilds with lots of people. Everyone's got an opinion and no actual facts. They get their bad builds from above sources and then spread it like wildfire throughout their guild members, this in turn is transmitted when they get out into the pug parties and start telling new players to run these awful builds, as they are the best. A common warning sign as an example, is watching a nomads guard continually congratulate himself on a slow run, by saying that his party members never got downed, and spam pinging his skills at what he perceives to be important moments that he alone is controlling. The new player is easily impressed by this and will take interest in running that build.

Cont..


Quoted from "4964872;J Eberle.9312:"

Early symptoms: These are very easy to spot and I'm sure your average player has encountered these cringe worthy moments many times. The patient will often start with innocent questions, such as 'is p/p thief any good? Does staff on guardian do the most damage?' Of course the answer is no, but then the patient will keep asking the question until they get the answer they want, all it takes is one person (usually someone else who is infected) to agree with them and say what they want to hear which is 'yes, this build is good' for that person to then become infected too. They will then cling to that notion and completely ignore anything else. Often times they will take to forums with these awful builds and seek further confirmation, completely tunnel-visioning through any rational argument and looking for anyone willing to give them a pat on the back and tell them it's a job well done. This in a way, is much like a person with 2 voices in their head. A small whisper says 'it's bad' but a strong voice bellows 'ITS A GOOD BUILD' over and over until the small doubtful voice is quelled. Seeking confirmation from others is important in making sure that small doubtful voice kittens off and is never heard from again.

Treatment is extremely reliant on the stage of the disease that the person is in. For example, someone with 15k AP and a bunch of legendaries running a staff AH guardian with bloodlust stacks and a bunch of shouts is a hell of alot harder to cure than someone with a couple hundred AP and a thrown together build of whatever he thinks might work because he doesn't know any better. Remember that ignorance is not part of the illness and is perfectly excusable, however self denial is a huge problem and often results in the terminal diagnosis. If one wished to treat these patients it must be done with care. Show them the difference, ask them to try some things, work them into it slowly. The realisation of what they've been doing wrong will be an epiphany that will hit them like a bucket full of bricks.

For those poor souls that fail to see the light.. The p/p thieves, the warrior stacked heavy only parties, the bearbows, the staff camping guards etc etc. Take comfort in knowing that not everyone can be saved, feel good about the ones that you did *sheds tear *

Memorable Quotes

I once tried to burn a bridge, but due to the half-assed levolution implementation it kept standing up just fine.

Compared to the MTAR, the PDR has the TTK of your average pack of cigarettes.

The World Champion, on the Tactical Light:
"Oh don't mind me, I'm just out of ammo and I'll just POCKET SUN!!!!"

What can't be changed can be banned.

I'm completely serious. Well, seriously insane actually :P

If only more people left the wheel chair, adjustable hospital bed, and crutches behind and played HC. (aka Regen, Minimap, Killcam)

Natalia Poklonskaya:
Putin the cute in prosecute since 2014.

I can't look at my own avatar without having to pee. GG Me. GG.

I swear to god if you reply with a picture of the AEK I'll mail you a buttplug shaped like one.

The one time when "it's only three inches" is a good thing.

Screwing with senior design team lead. She posted something to Facebook, people commented, tl;dr->hilarity.

(paraphrased slightly)

Her: Does it count as a workout if it takes ten minutes to put on the yoga pants in the first place?
Me: Then don't work out. If you want, I can recommend you some books.
Guy1: Or wear shorts.
Her: But then I'd have to shave!
Guy2: Nick does it, so can you.
Me: Are you commenting on my weight? (was replying to Guy1, it's an inside joke)
Her: You are banned from commenting on my wall. (to me)
Me: :(
Her: GET OFF OF MY FACEBOOK PAGE (joking)
Guy2: Team lead, you should remember your peer evaluation grade when you insult teammates.
Me: Guy2, you should remember your peer evaluation grade when you threaten to blackmail people with their peer evaluation grades.
Guy2: Nick and team lead should hook up.
