    As we all eagerly await the arrival of an MMO that just might bring some much needed new life to the MMORPG genre, we must all ask ourselves if we're ready to deal with online gaming? That's why I bring you this Pre-Wildstar Mental Wellness Evaluation.

    Now, gamer rage happens, so don't feel bad shouting obsenities at your computer screen (long as you apologize later and let it know you care about it, I don't think anyone will judge your abusive behavior you horrible, aweful person), and it's okay to get bummed when you wipe at the final boss of a raid you'd been working on for hours, after all, it was probably your fault, but the big thing you must watch out for?

    Best player on the internet syndrome.

    Yes, we all experience it a little once in a while. If a class gets nerfed, angry players of said class will come from the woodworks to complain that some 'uppity players who can't play just got mad' or accuse other classes of being far more powerful - because naturally, you're better than at least 75% of everyone on the internet. A player dies to someone who simply played more skillfully, and suddenly they throw accusations of hacking and an 'overpowered class' around like it's going out of style. An NPC proves particularly resilient, then the game must be broken, because your skills are nothing short of I337.

    Before you play WildStar, take a step back, take a deep breath, and ask yourself...

    Are other players just jelly of your skill?

    If you answered yes, then you may suffer from Best Player on the Internet syndrome.

    Now, ask yourself, 'If I lose, is it possible I just didn't play right?"

    If your answer is 'I want a bran muffin', you've either lost interest in this article, or suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, and may or may not benefit from a visit to a doctor.

    If you think you might suffer from 'Best Player on the Internet syndrome', then I have some healthy tips for you. Reguardless of the reason, take a step back, take a breath, and tell yourself these words.

    "I am not the best player on the internet."

    This humbling phrase will remind you that, whatever your ire is, it is silly.

    Unless you really are the best player on the internet. At which case, you may want to talk to someone, post complaints on forums, and spread word with as many exclamation points as possible.

    Doc, I tried saying it but it just didn't work. I think everyone else may have a problem.

    I like this Chua edition.

    I am perfectly find

    MAYHEM, DESTRUCTION AND KILLING!!!


    not fun response: You do realize gamers like to feel good about themselves and avoid feeling bad? this is pretty much the basic principle most games are being built on. Manipulate the gamer to feel like GOD and give him excuses when he loses so he wont leave and stop paying me.
    That is really the main reason pvp isnt as widespread as pve.
    Raging is to be expected
    I personally am always a calm sociopathic pvp only person that will play chua and murder people which will result in rage :D
    The problem is the delusions of greatness games create to players in order to sell, then pvp brings reality and you see what happens...
