But first of all, please take note of the warning below:


The Pretentious
The term pretentious, refers to a player of limitless narcissism.

The pretentious player has an irrepressible need to be the center of attention, to be recognized, to show that it is better than others.
He has a voice in his head that says “look at me, look at me, LOOK AT ME!!!

Let’s look at a couple of scenarios:

The pretentious will always re-bid on what you say:
-“Your stuff is up +20? Well mine is +25 looool”
-“Did you manage to tame a unique? Lol me I have my bank full”
-“Do you have 1mm of ruppy? I have 1000 gold bullion, look at my screen”
-“Did you catch a cold? I have an explosive diarrhea!”

The pretentious person becomes incrusted wherever he can :
-People gather on the horizon bridge as part of a HOR animation?
this is the place to go try 10 tons of Ullr scrolls in front of everyone.
-People are insulting in the world channel? Perfect, the pretentious will participate even if at the base it has nothing to do with the case.
-Invited to a DP group? The time to show his DPS then he fled after 10min.
-Nothing to say special? It is a detail, the pretentious invented situations that highlight it in the world channel.

The pretentious is of bad faith in all probability:
-“I lost my duel because the configuration of my keys was not good”
-“I died in the dungeon because rappelz had a bug”
-“He picked me up the aggro because I eat at the same time I play”
-“They kicked me out of the group because they are jealous and are bad”

Do not forget that the pretentious does not consider you as another player but one to argue,
immediatly he will convince himself that he is superior to you.
If ever he is sympathetic with you, it is either because you have entered into his delirium,
or that he covets something that you have and that he does not have.

Hard, hard to cohabit with a pretentious tell me you, well no.
-Just like annoying people, they can form colonies of several individuals,
overbidding each other to know “who has the biggest?“.
-We sometimes find a brown-noser hung on a pretentious, they work in symbiosis :
If the brown-noser emphasizes the prententious, the latter will give him remains loots as a reward.

This is already the end of this third article, you can resume a normal life and bring out your old people, provided of course that they are presentable.
