Courteous implies a positive, helpful mindset. If is conditioned by various factors, isn't really courteous, aka etiquette - that's immutable in any context. Give positive advices, not bickering regarding random stuff. Reveal hidden contents Also you should probably stop with your own subjective assessments like the "superiority complex" one and other "verdicts" pulled from the thin blue (to be polite - as per the topic), I doubt you know Viktor to make such assumptions. And it's rather ironic. I disagree. It absolutely SHOULD be one of many things discussed in a "Tips on how to be Courteous to Fellow Players" thread because good manners imply NOT treating your fellow players as better/less than each other AND not pushing this gatekeeping mindset. You certainly can 'attempt' to objectively quantify 'experience', much like you can 'attempt' to objectively define what makes a good player. That doesn't make the concept of an experienced/good player any less subjective. Since you didn't actually explain why you think this discussion is off-topic, the only interpretation I can think of from you that would make this off-topic is the idea that you completely missed the point of my comments, as evident in your hidden comment where you apparently think that I'm judging Viktor instead of criticizing his rhetoric. I'm directly defending CaptainChaotica's comment at the top of page 3, so if you're going to say that this discussion is off-topic, you have to argue that the ENTIRETY of page 3 and a small part of page 2 is off-topic. Let me clarify and simplify what I'm doing so that you don't misinterpret it again: I'm calling out the UNCOURTEOUS but very common "you have to do X to be a real Y" gatekeeping tactic Viktor is using that fosters an in-group mindset. If it helps you understand what I'm calling out much better, this form of gatekeeping is akin to what you see in the high-IQ Rick and Morty copypasta. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
