This is exactly the dumb kind of shit that is an inevitable result of this community's unhealthy obsession with how you should and should not play the game if you want to be "respected" by a select group of ignorant losers with a sense of unwarranted self importance. Great job spreading poor playing mentalities, guys!Do you know why I don't respect farmers? They didn't try to accomplish their personal goal, they were all chasing for pp.
I'm a completely unashamed "farmer". I buy into the PP system completely. You know why? Sure, it has its flaws in map weighting, but I consider the system to be a huge net positive in terms of motivating me to play the game - you know, playing more, the only thing that actually matters and the fundamental message of almost every response to lazy inquiries for advice? The PP system helps set realistic, achievable goals, rewards players for mastering maps and mods they otherwise wouldn't take a second glance at, and helps you track your progress and growth as a player and compare yourself to other players in a fairly accurately objective manner. These are all great positives to the system, it's a huge shame that everyone's elitism due to insecurity overshadows the benefits that using the system to your advantage can bring.
Is a higher rank really what you want? Don't you want to FC that certain techmap badly? Don't you want to "git guud" and farm whenever you please?
To each his own I guess.
