Sometimes I really wish people would consider the effects of things they say and how it affects others.
I really hate to listen to people brag. I have found that when I listen to people do it, it just makes me less impressed with the person speaking as a whole and really just promotes negative feelings overall. The good part of that I guess is that it quickly lets me know who I should care to take seriously, and who I should just ignore based off their character and tendency to do brag in order to belittle others. The reason I think this, is because that person isn’t really good at perception, if they don’t realize that there are actual factors that make for “easy” runs.
For example: When someone is expressing frustration at not yet mastering a quest or content, and someone instantly pops up with “Oh thats easy!” That second someone isn’t being helpful, they are just feeding their own desires of grandeur.
When all is expressed fairly, there are seemingly forgotten reasons that make things become easier. Time spent doing it, Knowledge of the mechanics, and Gear is what starts making things seem “Easy”.
If you enter fresh in brand new content, with no past experience, team members who are also new to the content, and gear that is below or on par with the scale of the content, then it may take you awhile to master something. That doesn’t make you a bad player. Nor are you below others who go in incredibly over-geared. Don’t compare yourself to those that have ran the content so much that they don’t have to think about it anymore. That isn’t necessarily always skill. A lot of time its just experience, and that comes with time. You’ll get there! Just keep trying! 🙂
