Greetings everyone, today we are talking about a few controversial subjects:
Vanilla, RIP and Harassment!

In case you do not know, there has been a massive influx of new players to the Realms: Argent Dawn EU and Moonguard US. This is because of a project made by many wellknown WoW Streamers.

This was placed not just on RP servers, but also the most crowded RP servers on each region, which was specifically designed to harass the largest populations of the RP crowd. Not only does this create a lot of traffic and non-RPers to RP servers, but also breaks the "Safe space" that a lot of RPers have come to know. While we can deal with the usual subjects with a simple /ignore. It is much different with people in the thousands. Although I will not be calling out names directly, mostly because a GM will just "<snip>" them anyways. Some of these streamers have openly encouraged harassment of roleplayers along with the belittling and bashing of a small minority.

While I am aware that not all streamers encourage this, and not all players do this. This is a post made on principle, and also a call that I for one am tired of being in a sub-community being the punching bag of the WoW community.

This is also not an attack on Vanilla players, as an RPer I fully understand wanting to play the game in an entirely different way than most. But this is the Argent Dawn Community taking a stand against against people, quite frankly treating this community like trash.
