I decided a long time ago to keep myself out of community affairs due to varying things not excluding this blatant mob effort on Habimaru. Reading this thread was like watching a bunch of people with daggers in their own backs making fun of the guy that just got stabbed. The sheer amount of hypocrisy and projection in this thread is not uncommon from what I typically witness in any online community (let alone Indie gaming communities) and it still sickens me with anger.
Habi, I appreciate the fact that you continue to voice yourself despite the amounts of ridicule you receive. I've read a lot of your threads and posts and I certainly don't agree with a lot of what you say (especially about combat-related things, not excluding what you've said about "end-game").
However, I do agree with your efforts to find non-conventional ways to explore combat. But, that's about all I agree with. It's clear that you're not familiar at all with a lot of things regarding combat, ranging from enchanting to damage to mechanics. I'm not going to personally attack you nor mock you for it. But, please: Try exploring more aspects of the game before commenting on things. It's okay to be wrong and I appreciate the courage you're showing in putting yourself out here to be contradicted and challenged. We do need more people like you in this community that are at least willing to challenge the norm.
As for the rest of you (excluding a select couple that know who they are):
It is entirely possible that Habimaru has done what he says he's done in regards to Phantasm.
I don't understand the rampant elitism within this community that's caused so many of you to believe that a person absolutely requires a certain gear set or reforge set to accomplish certain things and I can see the narcissism in your posts forcing your own cynicism upon Habimaru in that you're no longer even addressing his points in favor of personally attacking his mental stability. Habimaru is allowed to disagree with you and even be wrong (if you can prove yourselves correct). But, putting KR on pedestals like this is exactly why there's little to no creativity in this game anymore (if there ever was) among the playerbase. I know very well that many of you simply head over to YouTube, watch demonstrations of KR players doing content, imitate the styles and weaponry, throw Gacha Dollars at your characters, then lord yourselves over the rest of us as if you've become the best of the best. It's not the case that KR discovers everything nor discovers the "best" of everything. You may have been being hyperbolic, but the point is that I personally can attest to the fact that there are many things a lot of you don't actually know nor understand about certain dungeons and their mechanics (having been a human player that soloed Phantasm within a reasonable amount of time before G22 even dropped and made it a meme, had less than 15k levels, use laughable gear, and didn't use Final Hit -- or any melee whatsoever -- aside from peeling the Queen) and Phantasm clearly isn't excluded from that having run content with a large majority of the stronger players in Nao/Tarlach server and observed their battling. You certainly bring the damage and gear in most cases, but you don't have a clue when it comes to understanding the broad scope of things or adapting to different circumstances. You run with your buddies and pals on the regular (all of them always agree with you on everything), coup yourselves up in your ivory towers, and then somehow get the idea that you can talk down to everyone else when you haven't familiarized nor reminded yourselves with what it's like to not be a stat-jacked, reforge-clad character. I make the same mistake, too, sometimes and I'll admit that I'm not perfect. That's why I'm here reminding all of you that you once were in Habimaru's position, looking for ways to clear content and wanting to discuss new ideas instead of following the KR dogma when most of the ideas are built upon the premise that you have KR-tier ping.
I'm not going to respond further than this post, so feel free to yell at me and also tell me how mentally unstable I am for even remotely defending Habimaru. I'll laugh and go back to solitude because I'm not dealing with the drama from you nor certain biased members with authority again.
What do you think "War" involves? Handshakes and backpats?
I would never stoop to those levels. I do not encourage it, either. But, also I am not my hypothetical enemy. Bringing morality to War is naive.
