My opinion is that I have fond memories of attunements, such as the scholomance one when I first did it. It was not exactly easy or quick but it was not that horribly bad either. Same for the kara one. I did like it, but having to drag other people around to get the key could also be annoying. So I do like attunements but I also think they have their place.
I would like to see attuenments in the game for whatever is the current raid. They should be ones people can do solo, so if someone doesn't have it you do not have to drag them to get it, if they want to raid with you they will make the effort on their own. Once a raid is old, the attunement should be removed.
I believe that to be a fairly decent opinion, but of course I am bias as it is mine, but I explained why I like attunements and how I would like to see it done. But what happens on the forums if I were to post that there is something scary.
I would get called all sorts of names, idiot, moron, elitist, you name it. All because I support the idea of attunements. This is something that is horribly wrong with our community I believe. Not the fact that people disagree with me, but the fact that they would rather assault me, or my opinion, instead of posting their opinion or starting a conversation about my opinion and why they disagree with it. Name calling and personal attacks are just so much easier for the community we have.
Disagree with me if you wish, that is your right to do so, but no person is ever wrong, an idiot, or anything else based on their opinion of something. Opinions can not be right or wrong, it is just a statement of how you feel about something.
There is something called an uninformed opinion, which you can inform the person with, but even if the opinion is uninformed, it is still not wrong. It just did not have enough data for someone reading it to take the opinion with any weight. Like if I were to write my opinion of hockey, a sport I do not play or watch or even like. So if I were to say it is a bad sport that is my opinion, but my opinion would not mean as much as another persons that knows hockey well. Both my opinion and the other persons opinion are correct, to us, because it is based on our own feelings about hockey.
Everyone on the forums seems to read every word written as if it were posted as fact and argue it as if someone is lying about the facts.
Like I am lying that I enjoyed the attunements the first time through. I am lying that I think the new raids should have them only. I am lying thinking that attunements should be done solo.
Excuse me? How am I lying about what I believe I would like?
The community seems to have forgotten what an opinion is.
If someone says, I hate PvP, they get called a moron, a baby, a care bear, a whiner, a baddie, and all other things on the forums. All because they stated their opinion, that they hate PvP.
The forum posters all seem to forget how to have a conversation. They all seem to forget that opinions are not statements of facts, it is just statements of how someone feels about something.
If someone says they hate PvP you can reply, I like it, to each their own. That would be fine. You could also ask them why they hate it, that would be fine and even promote good conversation. You could point out some good points about PvP because maybe they have such limited experience with it and that limited experience left a bad impression on them. You can have a conversation about it or you can disagree with it. But not our forum posters, no, not them.
They will have to rip him apart because he said that. Or those that agreed with him, will have to bolster him for saying it because he is right about hating it and everyone else is wrong.
Opinions are not right or wrong, they are opinions.
When did stating your opinion on something mean you were stating a fact? When did stating your opinion on something become a personal attack on someone else? When did stating your opinion make you a bad person?
The answer to all three should be never.
It seems, in my opinion, that the community has totally forgotten how to have a conversation. They have forgotten to respect other peoples opinions. They have forgotten how to intelligently try to sway someones opinion. They just attack, attack, attack.
In my opinion, most people in our community, at least the ones that use the forums, don't even know what an opinion is.
And your opinion is?
