I've noticed that phrase being thrown every once in a while. "People want to be the hero of the story, therefore they must always win". It's only half bad IMO. Why, you may ask? Well, in my experience it's not really bad for someone to want to feel like they're the hero. They're. In their own sense, they are. After all, we are all our own heroes of our own, personal story. What people SHOULD realize is that even the heroes of the story sometimes lose. They don't always win. In other words, while its not bad to have a "Im the hero of the story" mentality, it should be known that even the "main" characters lose sometimes too. They even die! (I know, shocking, isn't it?)
I can vouch for people commiting hostilities and then painting themselves as victims. Without giving out any names (cause I dont want to start another argument, its pretty recent) I was a part of the group that was attacked on the road to our camp. The guy responsibile was punished. Staff determined he had no kill rights, no initiation was given and that the kill was invalid. The group that he was part of should've looked at themselves, what people they're RPing with and maybe fix the way they do things. No, it's not what happened. Instead OOCly they blamed me and my friends for what happened. In their mind (I guess) it was our fault that their friend commited KOS. We really need to try to show new people how things work around here because rules aren't a guidline, they must be followed. If your friend was punished for rule break, there is a clear evidence of that and you still blame the ones that were actual victims, then there isn't anything wrong with the community, or the rules. There is something wrong with you and how you do things (ofc Gatorr, it wasnt pointed at "you" specifically, I was talking in general now).
