Hmm yes, I believe every single word...
I didn't correct your spelling or grammar, merely made a passing comment on them. There is no need to get hostile, I'm just engaging you in a civilized conversation/debate. I called you friend as a gesture of peace as I have no desire to get into a name calling match.
We are all entitled to our opinions, but that doesn't make any of them the 'correct' opinion, so therefore isn't it better to allow options for everyone to choose, rather than based down to a certain groups personal beliefs?
If you don't agree with it, that's fine, then you don't have to use the same gender romance options and you will have no issue with it offending your beliefs. It's not like they are going to force you to make your characters partake in one or make you watch those of others, just as you in no way have to take or watch any opposite gender romance options if you do not wish to. Does it make it fair to deny people who would like to use those options the opportunity to do so just because you don't wish to use them yourself? In the end it is a virtual story to be played out as the player chooses and to restrict the options available to them is to tell them how to play their story out so that it is no longer theirs.
I'd also like to point out it is not called 'Straight Wars' either, and there is plenty of that in real life too. That's not considered an intrusion though.
Live and let live, everybody wins.
Wow, there are so many things wrong with your post, least of all the spelling and grammar.
Demands for equal stats, new ships and clothing: I got news for you, people are already asking for that, gay or not. Not a day goes by you won't read somewhere a request for an 'overpowered' class to be balanced, people asking for a certain type of ship to be added or a larger variety of armour. You essentially just said the game will be unaffected, and people will be behaving as normal, never mind the fact that your claim of a desire for special treatment is completely ridiculous to start with.
I think you need to learn some lessons in acceptance friend.
How is that messing up the game? It's just yet another gameplay choice which you can choose to take advantage of or leave it.
where it the reward in knowing that you play a class? There isn't one, because every single player in Rift that choose your calling can also play that class (soul). For me, it cheapens the experience.
In the same sense that every mage in WoW can be a fire mage? Or every priest can be a shadow priest? I guess I don't really understand your point when WoW has the same 'flaw'...
Sure Rift has fewer callings, but it has more souls to build from, whereas WoW has more classes, but each class has only 3 skill trees to work with. The way I see it is there are more unique builds you can create with Rift, and with so many options there's fewer cookie cutter builds that everyone has and therefore your character is more like your own.
To sum up:
Rift = fewer base classes, more skill tree combinations
WoW = more base classes, fewer skill trees
Not saying either was is better than the other overall, well I suppose I am from my perspective but thats all it is I guess, just a matter of preference in the end...
