The title says it all, but to elaborate, I play Planetside 2 for the purposes it was sort of originally intended for: logging into a persistent online battlefield spanning multiple large areas (that will hopefully be connected stategically someday), for as much free time as I have, and then logging out again and going about my life, a few certs richer and maybe a BR higher. I'm not interested in MLG tournaments, not as a participant where it feels like a second or third job, complete with rigid commitment requirements and obedience to yet another boss, in this case an outfit leader. I'm not interested in watching these, especially after the most recent disasters. Arrogantly congratulating warpgate campers and lots of ugly self-promotion isn't entertaining for me. I'm not happy about the ways big and small that MLG politics will influence the game for the rest of us. It's clear that lock-on weapons, grenade launchers, and lots of other equipment that exists both in real life and in this game as "unskilled" yet tactically interesting choices are on the chopping block if their lobby has their way. I'm here for the big battlefield, not the little ones. I'm not interested in battle islands. I probably won't even be allowed to play in one without a large outfit and an invitation the way things sound like. Socially, even culturally, I've seen a coarsening on this forum over the past year. Yeah, sometimes my worst posts can be a part of it, but with or without me it's been a steep slide into the League of Legends style of "your video game statistics are terrible so you must be a bad person and are not permitted an opinion in an opinion-based forum". I am willing to co-exist with these MLG guys. But I don't want to be them, nor do I care about their antics. I hope there's enough of a game left after they're done with it to play and enjoy in the time ahead.
