# 1 I Apologize
05-10-2011, 02:55 PM
I am only here to have fun and have never set out to ruin the game for anyone else.
----------------------------------------------------------------

That's the short version, everything that follows is just a bit a QQ with a side of venting. I will admit that I get mouthy at times. I like to call people out when they do silly things like /logoff in combat, or sit still in their Cruiser/Carrier complaining about some BoP/Escort running circles around them. When a player pops, someone always feels the need to remind me of just how awful I am and how much help I needed to do whatever it is I did. There are people out there who obviously want the attention, whether it's because they like being a punk or they think taunting is just the only way to tank, and somehow or another I manage to join their trollish ranks without even a word. I've been frustrated enough to cuss one person in /zone and, later, felt bad enough about it to hunt them down and apologize.

Sometimes it feels like I should start rubbing it in. I'm going to be taken the wrong way regardless, I might as well just accept it and start trolling away, right? To be clear, I "/zone RAMMING SPEED" because I'm corny and I "/zone Thanks all" because I enjoy playing and want to be sportsmanlike. I'm fine taking a lot of crap. I can post it on the forums, get a good laugh and move on, but I really would feel bad if someone honestly felt like I was out to harass or ruin their fun.

I look forward to running into, or up against, a lot of you guys and I think most of you understand all of this already. I realize STO is just a game and I understand that you shouldn't take things too seriously. It's just that, I'm not here to have a negative impact on anyone's experience and if anything I've done has come across that way I can assure you it wasn't intended.

I don't know who it is you feel you need to apologise but you have shot up my fed often enough and I never felt it was anything personal or insulting.

The only sad thing I can see here is that you have been made to feel bad enough to come on here and make such a public apology.

Dude... Some one actually made you feel the need to appologize?

Who was it? I'll be glad to fly around and annoy them with my crazy/silly builds.. all the while shouting "EVERYBODY TARGET HALE!"

Oh wait.. that might actually get them all to target you instead... Whoops...

Ditto. I can think of one person whose e-peen is too large, though. I won't name the wise guy here, for obvious reasons.

Seriously, Hale, you are one of the respectable folks in game. I think I'm a nice guy, but people have done that to me, too.

Hale, compared to the rest of us you look like a choir boy. Certainly compared to me. Relax and try not to take the words of the care bears too seriously.

Grab a beer and relax for a while, Steve. Our paths don't cross often, but when they do it's always a fun fight. Pleasure to blow you up and be blown up by you, you're a stand up guy.

Some people feel the need to justify their own failures by blaming others, and on top of that, don't take advice very well. Their loss, nobody elses, forget about 'em I say
