after chatting with @JNK i started thinking about my own online gaming history. turns out i'm an elitist arse as well. I play a strategy game and realised i always end up in clans with the same people every realm. we don't allow beginners to join and actively hunt those that are either learning or set in their ways as a "simmer", a simmer being someone playing sim village in that they never attack other players and usually build their cities so as to maximise silver production at the cost of troop numbers. our main enemies are the mass invite clans that do invite beginners, which is sad since these mass invite clans do not teach, they simply create more simmers. so, my question is, in your own experience, are you also an elitist in online gaming?
